Revelation of Jesus Christ

How many plagues were there in Pharaoh’s Egypt? How many plagues are there in the Antichrist’s Tribulation? World be warned.

Ezekiel 33:2-6

“”When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman,

3, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,

4, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.

5, He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.

6, But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman”s hand.” (Ezekiel 33:2-6)

Revelation 19:20 

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 14:11

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Pastor Mike Taylor;

Each of us are watchmen on the wall. If you stand behind a pulpit or preach to a congregation in whatever media you use, you have a responsibility to warn those who are in danger of hell fire and all that it represents. God does not send anyone to hell, as it is a decision that each of us must make, but the Word of God must start with men and women who are commissioned by God to take the Word of Truth to those who are in their sins.

Whether a minister believes he is a watchman or not, he is commissioned by God to spread the Gospel to the lost. He is to preach the penalty of sin. He is to abandon a feel good “gospel”, prosperity gospel, or a social speech of humanism and being just a “good citizen”. This won’t save anyone. It will not warn those who are walking the wide road and gate to destruction, but will only placate them that they are OK…they are not OK, as they do not have Jesus in their hearts. It is a minister’s job to take the message of salvation to his congregation, his community and the rest of the world.

Prepping for ‘Mr. Fix-It’

 Society is being prepped for the Antichrist, and as prophecy-loving believers try to warn, the words are falling on a lot of deaf ears.

 The stage is being set for a closing act. The players are getting into their proper positions. Heads of state are meeting to plot and scheme and deny even more rights. In places like Australia, Lithuania, and Austria, good people are enemies of the state even though they are upstanding citizens.

 World leaders have no comprehension they are majoring in minors. To them, it makes perfect sense to obsess over carbon emissions. During the Tribulation, this will fade from their memories as they cope with Seals and Trumpets and Bowls. These will spark “climate change” they cannot imagine!

 Most receiving this newsletter are “watchmen.” Ezekiel 33 tells us that if you don’t warn, the blood is on your hands, so you cannot be silent.

 Brace yourself to be shocked daily by things you read and watch. Satan is getting more active, and wickedness is rising, so God’s people must shine more brightly.

 But for the believer, a glorious event will happen soon. It is known as the Rapture of the Church. It is any day. Any hour. Any minute. So don’t grow weary!

 And yes, if a believer is a Rapture skeptic, they get the surprise of their life someday soon. Then you’ll have the privilege of saying, “I told you so.”

 Won’t that be a glorious day?

Pastor Greg Laurie; Harvest Ministries

“God promises this in the book of Revelation, and He also gives us a promise of global peace. The Antichrist, however, will bring pseudo peace. During the first three-and-a-half years of the seven-year Tribulation, he will come across as a good guy. But in reality, he will be a bad guy. And the Scriptures say that he will use peace to deceive many. Ultimately, once Antichrist is taken out of the way, God will bring global peace.”

WHO is the Abraham Accords ‘Confirmer,’ the BEAST, the Eighth (8th) King, the ‘ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT LEADER’, the FIRST RIDER OF THE APOCALYPSE who goes to Perdition (Utter Destruction), The LAST CEASAR, PHARAOH or ANTICHRIST?

Revelation 13:2-4

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon [Satan, Allah, Prince of the Power of the Air] which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast [Antichrist, Man-by-Satan ‘MbS’], saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Five (5) references to ‘beast.’ 5 denotes satanic influence over evil men.

Jesus Identified the Sign of the Antichrist: He is NOT Macron, Biden, Obama, Trump, Putin, Jinping, Gates, Pope Francis or Klaus Schwab. The ‘Beast’ has been identified NOW, and his role changes to the Antichrist 3.5 years into the Tribulation.

Revelation 17:8-11 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

‘Seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’ = NEOM Babylon sits on the seven (7) tallest mountains in the Midian Mountain range in the Tabuk region of Saudi Arabia. Tallest mountain is Mount Sinai. These mountains are scarlet and purple colored due to volcanic origin and related minerals deposited in rock. NEOM is a $500 (5) billion technological/hedonistic paradise. No mention or acceptance of Christ.

The seven and eight kings are in reference to the genetic lineage (bottomless pit of evil) of the House of Saud. These are ALL the modern kings since the foundation of modern Saudi Arabia.

Future, Real, during the ‘7 Year Tribulation’;

Revelation; Chapter SIX (6), the ‘start’ of the Tribulation when Christ, the Lamb, opens the first seven (7) SEALS of wrath or judgement against evil man’kind (6).

The following is my discernment and teaching. The Apocalypse is a ‘REVEALING’ or showing what is coming. Chapter six is a 70,000 foot view or general recap of the coming seven (7) year tribulation. It starts off with the revealing of the Beast or Antichrist and ends with the Armageddon battle on the Day or our Lord’s Return to Earth, to ‘rule the nations with an iron rod.’

6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

(Commentary; Christ, the Lamb was the ONLY ONE WORTHY in heaven, to have the authority to ‘open’ the seals and start the tribulation)

2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.

3 And when he had opened the second (2) seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Commentary; ‘Rumours and Threats of Wars’ are no longer threats, but reality. War will literally ‘break out’ across the earth as nations wage war against one another. This is NOT Armageddon or WWWIII. They are fighting each other, not a common enemy or common threat. Different countries have differences between each other, and no one in particular … except perhaps for the ‘King of the East.’ This is my discernment. ‘Great Sword’ suggests great military technology, as a sword is a reference to military arms. Humanity has more destructive military power at its fingertips now than at any point in human history.

5 And when he had opened the third (3) seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

(Commentary; balances are symbolic for economic transactions and ‘prices’ for things such as wheat and barley grain, bread, olive oil, wine, various food commodities. These are common throughout the world and are considered by most as the ‘staples of life or living.’)

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Commentary; The world will have reached a point of ‘climate apartheid’ where only the wealthy can afford basic food resources in the face of fatal droughts, famine, locust swarms and heatwaves, while the rest of the world suffers. Only the extreme rich can afford expensive cooking oil, baked pastries and loaves of multi-grain breads, fancy wines and related luxurious food stuffs. Yet, the ‘average peasant’ has to work for an entire day’s wages just to be able to buy enough wheat to make a loaf of bread. Great and severe income inequality is rampant worldwide. The ‘few’ own a massive disproportion of the earth’s wealth and bounty. Billionaires vs billions of poor. The ‘Crown Prince’ owns 60,000 (6) tonnes of wheat in his store houses or graineries while the few grain silos in the Port of Lebanon were destroyed and its people are threatened with expensive grain shortages that require humanitarian assistance.

7 And when he had opened the fourth (4) seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Commentary; ‘pale’ suggests disease, death and dying. Disease and death are the normal results for those subjected to endless warring. Cholera, famine, infection, no clean water, no housing, no medicine, no hospitals, etc., all play a part in continuing to kill those who were not killed in direct fighting. These are normally the ‘innocent’ or the civilians, not the military. Hell follows, why? Because the vast majority of peoples in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere have rejected the gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ for just over 2,000 years. They follow Satan’s lies (Islam) and deceptions with other false religions (Hindu deities) and various deceiving doctrines. Even though they appear ‘innocent’ by the world’s standards, they are none-the-less ‘unsaved’ because of their rejection of Christ. Time is up, they unfortunately die because of the effects of war, in an unsaved state … hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth.

9 And when he had opened the fifth (5) seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

Commentary; This verse specifically identifies the ‘Tribulation Saints.’ These are the people who became Christians during the tribulation and DID NOT worship the beast, or his image, or take his ‘mark, number or name.’ As a result of defying the Beast / Antichrist’s authority and NOT worshiping him, they are beheaded. They lose their necks, but gain eternity with Christ. Saudi Arabia is the ONLY country in the world that uses beheading for corporal punishment and is used against people for proselytizing against Islam. Islam, ‘those who worship the dragon and the beast.’

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth (6) seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

The Sixth Seal: A Nuclear Holocaust

Revelation 6:12-14: I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black… the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth… The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

John probably refers to “fractional orbital bombs” — nuclear-tipped missiles fired simultaneously from orbiting satellites. When these missiles streak through the air they’ll look like meteors entering the atmosphere.

“The skies roll back.” In a nuclear explosion the atmosphere literally rolls back on itself. The shock wave followed by the tremendous rush of air back into the vacuum creates utter destruction.

“The sun turns black and moon red,” means smoke so massive that no one can see the sun.

Look at the human reaction.

Revelation 6:15-17: Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

Every strata of society is affected.

The greatest prayer meeting that the world has ever seen commences. You’d think that men and women would finally call upon the name of the Lord. Instead, they pray to the rocks.

What’s the result of all this shaking? Do men turn to God? No! It just makes their hearts harder! There is a lesson there.

The more often you say “no” to Christ, the harder it is to ever say “yes.”

Saying “no, no, no” God hardens the heart like a stone. Think of Pharaoh. Think of the men and women who listened to Noah’s preaching for 125 years and never repented. If you’re not going to say “yes” in 125 years, what makes you think you’ll do it if you have one more year?

How many plagues were there in Pharaoh’s Egypt? How many plagues are there in the Antichrist’s Tribulation? World be warned.

Dec 27, 2021 The Israel Bible

וַאֲנִי אַקְשֶׁה אֶת־לֵב פַּרְעֹה וְהִרְבֵּיתִי אֶת־אֹתֹתַי וְאֶת־מוֹפְתַי בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם׃

But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that I may multiply My signs and marvels in the land of Egypt.

Exodus 7:3

Every schoolchild knows that Egypt was struck by ten plagues before the Hebrews were set free. But a different count is given in Psalms and several different options for enumerating the plagues are given during the Seder on Passover. 

According to the simple reading of the plagues in the Book of Exodus, the plagues were:

blood

frogs

lice

swarms

pestilence

boils

hail

locusts

darkness

the death of the firstborn.

It is, in fact, necessary to count the plagues as nowhere in the Torah does it say explicitly that Egypt was struck with ten plagues. In fact, Chapter 78 of Psalms (verses 42-52) retells the plagues, arriving at a total of seven:

blood

swarms

frogs

locusts (“chasil” and “arbeh“)

hail, frost, hail, fiery thunderbolts

pestilence

death of firstborn

This list appears to be missing three plagues – lice, boils, and darkness.

Again, in Psalms 105, verses 27-36, the plagues are enumerated:

darkness

blood

frogs

wild swarms- lice

hail

locusts

firstborn

Again, Psalms lists seven plagues rather than ten. This chapter in Psalms combines wild swarms (arov) and lice into one plague though in the Torah they clearly seem to be two separate plagues. Perhaps this chapter in Psalms is implying that the swarms were, in fact, lice as the Torah text is not precisely clear on the identity of the swarms. The view that describes them as wild animals is a possibility, but it is far from proven. The two plagues may have been closely related and they are consecutive.

Seven-fold Book Seals Opened by Christ: (1st of 3 “Wraths”)

  1. White horse (of the apocalypse) representing the Antichrist and his promise of false peace. (Rev. 6:2)
  2. Red horse (of the apocalypse) representing War. (Rev. 6:4)
  3. Black horse (of the apocalypse) representing Pestilence & Famine. (Rev. 6:5)
  4. Pale horse (of the apocalypse) called Death and Hell. (Rev. 6:8)
  5. Tribulation Saints, souls representing those who were martyred for their testimony of the Word of God. (Rev. 6:9-11)
  6. Great earthquake, sun/black, moon/red, stars of heaven (fallen angels) fall to earth, heaven departing as a scroll, every mountain and island moved out their place (great earthquake). (Rev. 6:12-14)
  7. Silence in Heaven for about half an hour, 7 angels given 7 trumpets for the next wraths, prayers of saints ascending to the throne of God, censer filled with fire from the alter cast to earth, voices, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake. (Rev. 8:1-6)

Commentary: First series of the three (3) wraths characterized as strong wrath. God is starting to dole out his wrath on the earth and sinful mankind. It starts with the appearance of the antichrist who promises false peace to those who follow him. God allows mankind’s sinfulness to run its course via wars, the famine and pestilence that always follows war, and ultimately death that follows. The Seven (7) book seals are unique because God is allowing man to war against man as a means of God’s wrath. The other wraths that follow in Revelation are predominately aimed at the earth and mankind directly by God via supernatural means. In the seven (7) books seals, God does introduce supernatural wonders in the heavens and the earth. The last seal judgement (7th) is somewhat of an enigma as to what it represents. I will suggest relatively simple interpretations. This seal indicates a brief interlude between what just happened on earth resulting from the book seal judgements to the next series (7 trumpets) of wrath. It is almost as if the heavenly host were given a chance to catch their breath from what they just witnessed in anticipation of what is to come next. The heavenly host know that forthcoming judgement will be much worse than what was just witnessed and being experienced on earth. This brief interlude also provides emphasis that God is now giving seven angels special trumpets that when blown, will unless the next catastrophes.  The passage that talks about the prayers of the saints ascending to the throne of God, has a very simple and practical application. As a result of the redemptive process throughout Revelation, God takes this specifically mentioned time to listen to his saints being persecuted and crying out for judgement against the beast and his system during the Tribulation. These prayers are specifically offered up to the throne of God.

Seven-fold Angels Blowing 7 Trumpets: (2nd of 3 “Wraths”)

  1. Hail/Fire mingled with blood. 1/3 of the trees and grass burned up on the earth. (Rev. 8:7)
  2. Great mountain burning with fire (meteor/asteroid?) cast into the sea. 1/3 of the sea becomes as blood. (Rev. 8:8-9)
  3. Great star(s) falling from heaven (meteors), named “Wormwood”,  burning as a lamp, causing 1/3 part of the fresh water on earth (rivers, fountins of water) to become bitter causing the deaths of many men who drink of this water. (Rev. 10-11)
  4. 1/3 of the sun, moon and stars smitten (darkened), the sun, moon and stars darkened for 1/3 of the day/night. (Rev. 8-12)
  5. Star (angel) falls from heaven to earth who is given the key to the bottomless pit which he opens. Smoke arises out of the pit darkening the sun and air, demonic locusts (demon hordes) are given power by Abbadon/Apollyon (king of the bottomless pit) like scorpions to sting/tormet men for five months. (Rev. 9:1-11)
  6. Loosening of the four fallen angels that are bound in the great river Euphrates, at the exact hour for which they are prepared to kill 1/3 of men. (Rev. 9:14-21)
  7. 7 thunders, sealing up those things just heard, great angel declaring there will be no more delay (time no longer) in God’s wrath, little book of bitter prophesies. (Rev. 10:1-11)

Commentary: Second series of the three (3) wraths are characterized as stronger wrath, increased in intensity and scope compared to the 1st  series of book seals wrath. There are several themes contained in these verses. The first theme suggests that the intensity and scope of these judgements is more severe than the first book seals judgements. The second theme suggests that God is now starting to pour out more of his supernatural wrath against the earth and man’s environment which has sustained mankind for almost 6,000 years. All of these judgements are supernatural and initiated by God, and not man. The third theme suggests that the trumpet wraths are limited to affecting just 1/3 of the heavens and earth in the areas prophesized. An easily overlooked point is that God could easily decimate all of mankind with these supernatural series of judgements. The fourth theme suggest that in His infinite mercy, God still chooses to exercise some restraint to allow for mankind to repent and accept Christ as their Savior and for the forgiveness of their sins. In the midst of unbelievable environmental disaster and affliction, God is still giving evil mankind an opportunity to participate in and benefit from the redemptive process from sin which He offers through Jesus Christ.

A fifth theme suggests there exists a point of debate as to whether or not some of these trumpet wraths are a result of nuclear war (wormwood, bitterness, airborne dust and smoke that blot out the heavenlies). These are exactly the description of what would occur during a worldwide series of nuclear strikes! However, the descriptions also accurately depict the devastation that would be caused by a catastrophic asteroid hit and/or a series of meteors (shower) hammering the earth with radioactive materials. Extreme, violent volcanism could also be responsible for this destruction on earth. As I am fond of doing, I like to use blockbuster movies to bring to mind, as close as possible, some of the symbolism and descriptions contained in prophecy. These may be a bit of a cliché, but they still serve the purpose.

It has been a few years now since Bruce Willis starred in a summer sci-fi blockbuster called Armageddon. Some of you may recall that this movie graphically depicted the devastation caused by meteor shower strikes on the earth and a looming, planet destroying asteroid that is on a bullseye track to hit earth. The resulting collision would bring about nuclear winter (the blotting out of the sun and the resulting planetary wide destruction of the environment). Ironically, this movie may have been a shadow of things to come when God pours out his supernatural wrath during the seven trumpet judgements. The last comment I will suggest on this topic is scientific in nature. Picture in your mind, for a minute, the green-blue earth spinning on its axis with land masses, oceans and freshwater rivers/lakes existing on all sides of our home.  In order for 1/3 of the environment to be destroyed, a devastating meteor shower would have to strafe the earth, over a period of time as the earth rotates. A terrifying visual indeed! As a result, my interpretation is that the trumpet judgements are not the result of man-made nuclear war, but rather, the outpouring of God’s supernatural wrath using the materials in the heavens that are at his disposal and command. This interpretation stays within the supernatural context of these combined verses.

A sixth theme occurs when God utilizes demonic hordes to exercise his wrath against the sinful world. Although this is supernatural in context with the other judgements, it is different in the sense that the demonic is now given the ability to inflict scorpion like pain on those who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads. So as to not be repetitive, see my comments below concerning these demonic hordes in the seven descriptions of the demonic locusts. The demonic theme continues as referenced by the four fallen angels, who have been supernaturally imprisoned in the Euphrates river.  Whereas the demonic hordes/locust like creatures are given authority to inflict pain, the demonic fallen angles are given authority to kill 1/3 of mankind. That would be close to 2.5 to 3.0 billion people by today’s population estimates.

Lastly, a seventh theme is suggested. In addition to the actual wraths described that are poured out onto the earth and evil mankind, the last trumpet suggests some mystery and prophecy that is yet to unfold. Some eschatologists believe that this verse alludes to earlier versus and prophecies in the bible that suggest additional woes of sort, during the Tribulation. Some believe that this verse refers to the final seven (7) vial plagues. Yet, others believe that “sealing up that was just heard” and the “bitter little book of prophesy”, is something additional that is mysteriously hidden from men’s knowledge today, but will be revealed in proper time during the Tribulation and/or Great Tribulation periods.

Seven-fold Angels Pouring 7 Golden Vials = 7 Last Plagues: (3rd of 3 “Wraths”)

  1. Noisome and grievous sores upon the men which had the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. (Rev.16:2)
  2. Sea becomes as the blood of a dead man and every living soul dies in the sea. ( Rev. 16:3)
  3. Rivers and fountains of waters became blood. (Rev. 16:4)
  4. The sun is given the power to scorch men with fire. (Rev. 16:8-9)
  5. The kingdom of the beast is put into total (full) darkness. (Rev. 16:10-11)
  6. Great river Euphrates is dried up. (Rev. 16:12)
  7. Great voice from heaven saying “It is done”, voices, lightnings, thunders and a great earthquake, such as has never been on the earth, “so mighty and so great”. City of Babylon split into three parts. Islands and mountains disappear. Great hail falling from heaven, each hail stone having the weight of about a talent. (Rev. 16:17-21)

Commentary: Third series of the three (3) wraths, characterized as the strongest wrath with the most intensity compared to the Seal and Trumpet wraths. These are considered the last plagues or wrath poured out on the earth and mankind. Notice that almost all these plagues directly affect the earth (which sustains man’s ability to live and exist). What started out as partial affects on the earth, sun, moon, stars, rivers, foliage, etc., in the seal and trumpet wraths has now become a total affect. Interestingly, the very last vial plague states, “It is done.” God’s wrath has been totally poured out on the earth and mankind. Babylon is annihilated in one hour by an cataclysmic earthquake. Hidden in all three (3) wrath phases is God’s mercy. How can that be? God, in his infinite mercy, chooses not to pour out total wrath or destruction all at once. He chooses to do it incrementally and give evil man a chance to repent and accept Christ’s offer of salvation after each series of wraths. God metaphorically ‘turns up the heat’ in each successive series of wraths in order to shake up the most hardened of hearts. He wants men to repent of their sins throughout the entire Tribulation and Great Tribulation period. However, the Bible is clear that many (most) men “repent not”, and instead curse God.

Seven-fold Reference of God’s Wrath on Earth:

  1. Great Earthquake, sun becomes black, moon became as blood. (Rev. 6:12-14). Jesus Christ / 6th seal from book.
  2. Third part (1/3rd) part of trees and grass burned up by fire, blood and hail. (Rev. 8:7). 1st angel / 1st trumpet wrath.
  3. Third part (1/3rd) part of sea becomes as blood from a mountain buring with fire that was cast into the sea. Third part (1/3rd) part of sea creatures are killed and ships are destroyed. (Rev. 8:8). 2nd angel / 2nd trumpet wrath. Sea becomes totally dead as the blood of a dead man, everything living dies in the sea. (Rev. 16:3). 2nd angel / 2nd vial plague.
  4. Third part (1/3rd) part of rivers, fountains and waters are made bitter by a star named Wormwood. (Rev. 8:10-11). 3rd angel / 3rd trumpet wrath. Rivers, fountains and waters become total blood. (Rev. 16:4-6). 3rd angel / 3rd vial plague.
  5. Third part (1/3rd) of the sun, moon and stars are smitten with darkness resulting in sunlight for only 2/3rd of the day, and moon and star light for only 2/3rd of the night. (Rev. 8:12). 4th angel / 4th trumpet wrath.
  6. Total darkness of the beast’s kingdom and his “seat” (capital), men repent not. (Rev. 16:10-11). 5th angel / 5th vial plague.
  7. Great river Euphrates is dried up. (Rev. 16:12). 6th angel / 6th vial plague.

Commentary: God’s wrath is poured out on both the earth and man. The verses referenced above indicate the seven wraths poured out on nature, directly. These incrementally increasing wraths affect all of a nature. The sun, moon, stars, seas, freshwater systems, rivers,  and the earth’s structural integrity. Everything that supports life for man on earth is affected. By affecting nature, God is affecting evil mankind’s ability to maintain life. Most of the wraths poured out in the trumpet and vial judgements affect nature directly. The seven-fold wrath’s of judgement poured out on the earth are complete, total and part of God’s divine purpose or plan. EVERYTHING on earth and in the immediate heavens (not heaven) are affected. Whereas Christ begins God’s wrath by opening the book seal judgements, angels are the entities responsible for administering God’s trumpet wraths and vial plagues upon the earth.

7 Years of the Combined Tribulation and Great Tribulation Period(s):

  • First 3 ½ years Tribulation(First Half of the Seven Year Period):
    • … “And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therin. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (3.5 years).(Rev. 11:1-2). (Emphasis added).
    •  … “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (3.5 years), clothed in sackloth.” (Rev. 11:3). (Emphasis added).
    • … “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (3.5 years).” (Rev. 13:5). (Emphasis added).
    • Breaking of the seven book seals by Christ, four (4) horsemen of the Apocalypse. (Rev. 6:1-8).

Midpoint:  Abomination of Desolation. (Mathew 44:22), (Mark 13:14). Satan indwells the beast/antichrist, defiles the rebuilt Jewish Temple by declaring he is God and to be worshipped as God. He also stops the Jewish practice of animal sacrifices for the atonement of sins and demands that the Jews worship him as God. Realizing that they (Jews) placed their faith in the wrong “messiah”, they give flight into the wilderness to avoid Satan’s persecution of them. It is also commonly believed that at this point, the Jews will mourn/woe/lament “for him who they pierced (Christ),” as Jews realize their historical mistake in antiquity and truly accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Midpoint: Mystery (Religion) Babylon is destroyed by 10 kings. (Rev. 17:16-17). Satan/beast destroy Mystery Religion Babylon, to make way for only the worship of Satan. Satan pulls of the greatest religious worship “bait-n-switch” in mankind’s history.

  • Last 3 ½ years Great Tribulation(Second Half of the Seven Year Period):
    • … “And when the dragon saw that he was cast  unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”  (3.5 years). (Rev. 12:6-7).(Emphasis added).
    • … “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (3.5 years), from the face of the serpent.” (Rev. 12:14). (Emphasis added).
    • Administration of the Seven (7) trumpet wraths. (Rev. 8:1-13, 9:1-21, 11:15).
    • Administration of Seven (7) final vial plagues. God declares from his throne, “It is done.” (Rev. 16:17).
    • Battle of Armageddon. Christ’s second coming, “ Great Day of the Lord.” (Rev. 19:11-21).
    • Babylon “the great city” is destroyed in one hour at Christ’s Second Coming (Great Day of the Lord). (Rev. 18:8, 10, 17, 19).

Commentary: This particular commentary is not meant to provide a very distinct, monthly or yearly timeline. It provides a general timeline of the events occurring during the Tribulation. There are events that occur distinctly at the beginning, middle and end of the seven (7) year period. Certain events occur logically before other events. With each successive wave of wrath”, the outpouring of God’s anger increases. The first three and half years of the Tribulation are characterized by the establishment of the worldwide beast system, Babylon City, Mystery Religion Babylon, wars – famines – pestilence – death of men, by men. Jews are given a false sense of peace and security. Satan, through the beast/antichrist,  allows the Jews rebuild their temple, just so he can cause the Abomination of Desolation in the temple, at the Tribulation mid-point. Also during the first  and half years, God provides the earth with his two supernatural witnesses or prophets to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is also at the midpoint of the Tribulation where the beast/antichrist is enabled to kill God’s two special witnesses. 

Notice I did NOT provide a specific  day, week, month or a given year. Midpoint of the Tribulation period could theoretically be calculated once the Tribulation officially begins. However, no one knows the day, nor the hour of the rapture/harpazo of the Church, let alone, the timing or onset of the Tribulation. My personal belief is that anyone who will accept Christ and die in martyrdom, will have do so during the first three and half years of the Tribulation while the two witnesses proclaim the gospel. The final three and half years (Great Tribulation) is the period where God pours out his strongest and most comprehensive wrath upon the earth and heavens (not heaven) and to what is left of evil mankind. Trumpet and Vial judgements/wraths are administered during the final three and half year period. The end of the Great Tribulation and total seven (7) year period witnesses the Great Day of The Lord, the battle of Armageddon and the total destruction of the great city Babylon. These three major Biblical events take place on one day! The Bible is even clear that the destruction of Babylon takes place in just one hour, due to a cataclysmic earthquake. During the final three and half years, what is left of the Jews who fled into the wilderness are supernaturally protected by God and cared for. Most Eschatalogists and students of Bible prophecy believe the supernatural protection of the remaining Jews will be in the rock city of Petra.

 Do the math! Divide 84 months over the entire course of the Tribulation/Great Tribulation by twenty-one (21) plagues or wraths (7 seal judgements, 7 trumpet judgements, 7 vial judgements = 21 judgements) = an average of one (1) wrath or judgement every four (4) months! Logic would suggest that due to the shear volume and number of wraths poured out over the Tribulation/Great Tribulation that there is an extremely high probability that many of these judgements will/could overlap one another. Don’t get lost in the forest trying to pin down when or how long each wrath of judgement occurs. The timing of these judgements over seven (7) is not what is particularly important as compared to what the wrath is and to what (earth or mankind) it is aimed at. Don’t loose sight of the big picture of what God is doing, according to his plan and purpose. He accomplishes his plan in due time, regardless of our perception of time.

The end of the Tribulation and Great Tribulation period(s) ushers in the 1,000 year Millennial Reign of Christ on earth and the New Jerusalem. The next Millennial period also ushers in the physical regeneration of the earth to an ‘Eden-like’ state and the physical regeneration of man, on earth. Earth has been so devastated by wars and God’s wrath, that He restores the creation of his earth. Likewise, the physical population of earth has been so decimated by wars and God’s wrath, that God uses the remnant of humanity to genetically restore the population of men. God repopulates earth in a manner similar to his repopulation of the animal kingdom and humans, after the flood of Noah.

Seven-fold Acknowledgement of the Tribulation Saints (Martyrs):

  1. … “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.“ (Rev. 6:9-11). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.“ (Rev. 12:11). (Emphasis added).
  3. … “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev. 13:15). (Emphasis added).
  4. “ Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” (Rev. 14:12-13). (Emphasis added).
  5. … “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, having the harps of God.“ (Rev. 15:2). (Emphasis added).
  6. “For true and righteous are his judgements: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.“  (Rev. 19:2). (Emphasis added).
  7. … “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgement was given unto them: and I saw souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.“ (Rev. 20:4). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: The Bible makes it abundantly clear that the Tribulation Saints are those people that become Christians during the period of the Antichrist’s reign on earth, over the seven (7) year period. How do they become Saints in the eyes of Christ? They believe in and accept Christ as their Savior and for the forgiveness of their sins. They do NOT take the mark of the beast or the antichrist. They do NOT worship the beast/antichrist. They do NOT worship his image. They DO witness to the word of God and Jesus. They ARE martyred by beheading for believing in Jesus and witnessing for Him. They DO share in many of blessings and rewards that are also awarded to Christians from the Church Age (at the Rapture/Harpazo and Bema Seat Judgement). There is a very clear distinction between Christians redeemed by Christ prior to the Tribulation period, and those Christians redeemed during the Tribulation period. It is clear that they have to come to a saving grace knowledge of Jesus Christ, withstood the best efforts of Satan/Antichrist/False Prophet to thwart their salvation, and are beheaded for their belief and witnessing in Jesus Christ.

Seven-fold Description of the War of Armageddon:

  1. … “And the number of the army of horsemen were two hundred thousand, thousand: and I heard the number of them.” (Rev. (9:16-19). (Emphasis added).
  2. ”And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (Rev. 14:20). (Emphasis added).
  3. “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. (Rev. 16:12). (Emphasis added).
  4. “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Rev. 16:14). (Emphasis added).
  5. … “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” (Rev. 16:16). (Emphasis added).
  6. … “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Rev. 17:14). (Emphasis added).
  7. “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Rev. 19:11-21). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: This is the big one. The war to end all wars. The epic conflict between good and evil, in all of history. This battle will make other battles in history seem like minor skirmishes. The raw numbers of the combatants is mind boggling. The bloodshed is so great that its liquid volume is up to the height of horse bridles. Soldiers will be literally swimming and fighting in blood. It is an understatement to be able to imagine the horror, the smell, the flies, the imagery, the anguish, the pain. Birds, from far and wide, will sense the slaughter and flock to Armageddon to literally peck, feast and gorge on human carcasses …  to the point that they can’t eat anymore. The arrogance and evil of Satan and mankind is so great to think that they can defeat the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS with common military equipment (no matter how modernized). This self deluded sense of power suggests insanity.  A military analogy would be that of a ‘pee-shooter’ going up a against a multi-headed nuclear weapon. A supernatural, one-sided, overwhelming victory is never questioned. The result is a foregone conclusion. The enemy should have surrendered before they even got into battle. Better yet, they should have never showed up in the first place. Instead, they should have spiritually surrendered to Christ for the forgiveness of their sins before they were physically annihilated. The analogies and metaphors could continue for pages. The Holy Spirit and word of God makes sure to describe Jesus Christ in a way that defines who he is, his status, his power, his righteousness to judge and defeat evil, where he comes from, who he commands and who supports him (not that he needs it). There is no question that Jesus Christ and the armies of heaven represent another form of Almighty God’s wrath. This battle is a bolded, underlined exclamation point (!), by God, at the end of the seven (7) combined years of the Tribulation period, or the Week of Jacob’s trouble.

Seven-fold Description of Christ on The Day of the Lord (Battle of Armageddon):

  1. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. (Rev. 19:11). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself .” (Rev. 19:12). (Emphasis added).
  3. … “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” (Rev. 19:13). (Emphasis added).
  4. … “And the armies of which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” (Rev. 19:14).  (Emphasis added).
  5. … “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” (Rev. 19:15). (Emphasis added).
  6. … “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Rev. 19:16). (Emphasis added).
  7. … “And the remnant were were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” (Rev. 19:21). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: Twenty-one (21) ‘And’s’  = 3 x 7! HOLD on to yours chairs! Count the number of ‘and’s’ in the seven (7) descriptions of Jesus Christ when he returns to earth on The Day of the Lord, (I have them underlined). There are 21 (twenty one), hidden in plain sight within the seven general descriptions of Christ. The Holy Spirit keeps prompting John the Apostle to use the word ‘and’ because they are so many descriptions of Christ to be made in these seven (7) verses. You may remember reading in one my other commentaries in this analysis that the number three (3) denotes emphasis and intensity, the number seven (7) denotes divinely determined completeness as to God’s purpose or plan. It is God’s purpose that the description of Jesus, on The Day of Lord, includes 21 attributes, descriptions and effects of his Son. There are so many indicated, that they literally have to be placed in seven (7) verses in order to be understood and differentiated from one another. Only God has the omnipotence to be able to hide mathematical accuracy, precision and truth in His word. God’s will is infinitely specific, down to a word that is used, where it is used, and how often it used, and in the context that it used. In the sevenfold description of Christ, God’s word is miraculous, on so many levels, not just mathematically. Many of us have read these passages countless times and have come away with an understanding that they do describe Jesus Christ accurately and precisely. There is no question as to who is being described. Just when we think we know what he have read, God comes along and opens and stretches our minds a little bit more and gives us a little more insight and wisdom from his word. The word of God is truly living and not static!

Seven-fold Reference to Prophecy:

  1. … “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.” (Rev. 1:3). (Emphasis added).
  2. “And he said unto me, Thou must prophecy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues and kings.” (Rev. 10:11). (Emphasis added).
  3. … “And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10). (Emphasis added).
  4. … “Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.” (Rev. 22:7). (Emphasis added).
  5. “And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.” (Rev. 22:10). (Emphasis added).
  6. …  “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.” (Rev. 22:18). (Emphasis added).
  7. “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Rev. 22:19). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: Blessings and warnings are issued in conjunction with prophetic writing or proclamations. Blessed is he who reads, hears, understands and takes to heart what is proclaimed by the prophecy (the entire book of Revelation). Conversely, another prophecy states that God will pass judgement on anyone who detracts from, or adds to his word that has already been provided. Don’t mess with, or distort what God has proclaimed. The end is near, time is at hand. Don’t hide or ignore the prophecy of Revelation. Don’t seal it up and stick it away in a drawer, filing cabinet, entertainment center, nightstand or box in the basement or attic. It is meant to be opened,  read, understood and acted upon NOW! The Revelation of Jesus Christ to the Apostle John is the answer to the question of “why study bible prophecy?” It can’t be stated any clearer than that.

Seven-fold Reference to The Day of the Lord:

  1. … “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Rev. 5:16-17). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Rev. 16:14). (Emphasis added).
  3. “And he gathered them together into a place called  in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” (Rev. 16:16). (Emphasis added).
  4. … “And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.” (Rev. 14:19-20). (Emphasis added).
  5. … “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings on hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chose and faithful. (Rev. 17:12-14). (Emphasis added).
  6. … ”And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse: and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness hedoth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the wine-press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.   (Rev. 19:11-16). (Emphasis added).
  7. … “And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” (Rev. 19:21). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: References to “The Day of the Lord” have been thrown around enough to be interpreted as pertaining to events occurring throughout the seven (7) year combined Tribulation period, or to be directly related to the very last day when Christ comes to earth (his second coming) with the armies of heaven. Using the seven references listed above as a guide to God’s word, it is clear that an understanding to “The Day of the Lord” is to mean the triumphant return of Christ and his victory over his enemies at Armageddon. Each verse is very clear in describing Christ and what happens during this day. Although not directly described in these verses, other verses indicate that Babylon (city) is destroyed in just one hour, during Christ’s second coming. Christ returns like a lion, roaring, full of glory, strength, judgement, righteousness, wrath and a sharp two sided sword that is the word of God. He is able to destroy his enemies with just a word from his mouth, no multi-tipped nuclear missiles are needed. Christians who propose and subscribe to a ‘pre-trib’ rapture/harpazo (as do I), will quickly and accurately note that Christ returns with a unique army from heaven. He is followed by people riding white horses clothed in white linen (righteousness). These are the redeemed in Christ who have been given righteousness through their belief in Christ’s salvation from the forgiveness of their sins. Only the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS can give this righteousness to a person who has been raptured, glorified, partakes of the Bride’s supper and Bema seat judgement. The ‘blessed hope’ of these events occur seven years prior to, and well in advance of the Day of the Lord’s second return to earth to conquer his enemies. Artists for countless centuries have tried, with varying degrees of success, to capture the immense glory and power of Christ during his second coming on the Day of the Lord. Man is woefully inadequate in his skill to capture and portray this event in its glory, intensity and scope.

Seven-fold Title of Jesus:

  1. Lord. (1X). (Rev. 11:15)
  2. Jesus. (3X). (Rev. 17:6, 19:10, 22:16)
  3. Christ. (1X). (Rev. 11;15, 12:10)
  4. Lord Jesus. (1X).  (Rev. 22:20)
  5. Jesus Christ. (4X) (Rev. 1:2, 1:5, 1:9, 22:16)
  6. Lord Jesus Christ. (1X). (Rev. 22:21)
  7. Lamb. (24X). (Rev. 5:6, 5:8, 5:12, 5:13, 6:1, 6:16, 7:10, 7:14, 7:17, 12:11, 13:8, 14:4, 14:10, 15:3, 17:14, 19:7, 19:9, 21:9, 21:14, 21:22, 21:23, 21:27, 22:1, 22:3)

 Commentary: These are capitalized titles and names, and are not descriptive elements.

X = the number of time a Title was referenced.

Jesus Christ (4X) + Jesus (3X) = 7 Title References = Completeness of God’s divine plan or purpose.

Jesus Christ (4X) + Christ (2X) + Lord (1X) = 7 Title References = Completeness of God’s divine plan or purpose.

Jesus Christ (4X) + Christ (2X) + Lord Jesus (1X) = 7 Title References = Completeness of God’s divine plan or purpose

Jesus Christ (4X) + Christ (2X) + Lord Jesus Christ (1X) = 7 Title References = Completeness of God’s divine plan or purpose.

Lamb (24X) = 24 Title References = God’s abundant / doubled organizational arrangement.

The mystery of God’s omnipotence of truth in the titles of his only begotton son, Jesus Christ. Numbers within numbers, still equal God’s truth, no matter how you calculate them! Layers upon layers. Truth upon truth. Mystery upon mystery. Meaning upon meaning. Changing the sequence in the combinations of His titles does not change the value or meaning associated with his title(s)! No matter the order, they still come up 7X (seven combined title references). Only God could have designed the combinations of Jesus’ titles in such a way that all the combinations still equal or reflect the completeness of God’s divine plan or purpose in his Son, Jesus Christ.

2 times the referene of something = Solid Confirmation.

3 times the reference of something = Emphasis and Intensity.

4 times the reference of something = Foursquareness, solidness and balance of symmetry, intelligence of purpose or design.

7 times the reference of something = Divinely determined completeness as to God’s purpose or plan.

12 times the reference of something = Divinely constitued organization either in heaven or earth.

24 times the reference of something = God’s abundant (doubled / 2 x 12) organizational arrangement.

The title of ‘Lamb’ is extremely significant or important. Through this name or title of Jesus, God is reminding us twenty-four (24) times  that Jesus died for the forgiveness of our sins, he was slaughtered as a lamb so that we could be saved. This fact is so important to God, of what Christ did for us on the cross, that it keeps getting repeated and repeated and repeated above all the other titles or names of Jesus. The number twenty-four (24) also indicates that Jesus will be the ruler (King of Kings and Lord of Lords) over his kingdom/government on earth. Yes, the bible has many verses attesting to Jesus’ government on earth, in Jerusalem, during the millennium. Also, indicated throughout the the book of Revelation (and referenced in this analysis), redeemed Christians are promised a role in the participation and co-reign of Jesus’ government on earth. The bible is silent on the extent of these roles, or how they will be administered. Nonetheless, we will participate with Jesus in administering his government for the one thousand year period known at the millennium. Last, but not least, notice that there are no (none, zero, nada) references of five (5) or six (6) names or titles to Jesus. The number five (5) is reserved for Satan, and the number six (6) is reserved for evil man (mankind, beast, false-prophet – 666). God, through the Holy Spirit is so accurate in his naming of Jesus, that he specifically leaves out five (5) or six (6) number of references since these numbers refer to evil. Mind boggling accuracy and truth within truth, numbers within numbers and meaning within meaning.

WHO is the Abraham Accords ‘Confirmer,’ the BEAST, the Eighth (8th) King, the ‘ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT LEADER’, the FIRST RIDER OF THE APOCALYPSE who goes to Perdition (Utter Destruction), The LAST CAESAR, PHARAOH or ANTICHRIST?

Revelation 13:2-4

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon [Satan, Allah, Prince of the Power of the Air] which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast [Antichrist, Man-by-Satan ‘MbS’], saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Five (5) references to ‘beast.’ 5 denotes satanic influence over evil men.

Jesus Identified the Sign of the Antichrist: He is NOT Macron, Biden, Obama, Trump, Putin, Jinping, Gates, Pope Francis or Klaus Schwab. The ‘Beast’ has been identified NOW, and his role changes to the Antichrist 3.5 years into the Tribulation.

Revelation 17:8-11 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

‘Seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’ = NEOM Babylon sits on the seven (7) tallest mountains in the Midian Mountain range in the Tabuk region of Saudi Arabia. Tallest mountain is Mount Sinai. These mountains are scarlet and purple colored due to volcanic origin and related minerals deposited in rock. NEOM is a $500 (5) billion technological/hedonistic paradise. No mention or acceptance of Christ.

The seven and eight kings are in reference to the genetic lineage (bottomless pit of evil) of the House of Saud. These are ALL the modern kings since the foundation of modern Saudi Arabia.

Proof of the ‘line of’ of the 8 kings.

Kings of Saudi Arabia (1932–present)

 1.        King Ibn Saud. 9/22/1932 – 11/9/1953. Kingdom founded by conquest. Had six (6) sons that became Kings of the Kingdom. Six (6) is the number of evil man/men. The ground work for this kingdom was being created at the same time as the ground work for the State of Israel. Satan started establishing his ‘chosen people’ (those who worship the dragon and beast) at the same time God was re-establishing his ‘chosen people’ (the Jews) over the 1930’s to late 1940’s. 1 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.

2.         King Saud. 11/9/1953 – 11/2/1964. 2 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.

3.         King Faisal. 11/2/1964 – 3/25/1975. 3 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.

4.         King Khalid. 3/25/1975 – 6/13/1982. 4 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.

5.         King Fahd. 6/13/1982 – 8/1/2005. 5 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.

6.         King Abdullah. 8/1/2005 – 1/23/2015. The king ‘that is.’ This is the 6th king revealed by the Holy Spirit to John the Apostle. He is the signpost for the ‘season of the times’ of the latter days, prior to the tribulation. A sign for the evil Gentile nations.

7.         King Salman. (King 2015 – ?). 1/23/2015- (2022) This is the 7th and ‘future’ king revealed to John the Apostle who will reign for a ‘short time or while’. If his reign lasts for 7 years, from 2015 on into 2022, it will truly reflect a short reign and denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the seven kings, including the seventh king. King Salman is the LAST of the six (6) sons of Ibn Saud to be King of Saudi Arabia.

8.         Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. He is the 8th and final ‘future’ king revealed to John the Apostle. He is the ‘beast’, comes from seven (7) kings/lineage before him and goes to perdition. His reign is over the seven (7) years of the tribulation. Born 1985, he will be 35 (7×5) years old in 2020. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose. Five (5) denotes Satanic influence of men and kings. God’s influence over men in greater than Satan’s influence over men 7>5. Notice that MBS will be the FIRST king who is NOT a direct son of founding King Ibn Saud in 1932. Becoming the 8th king, MBS represents a ‘new epoch’ a ‘new future’ for the kingdom that forms an ideological break from the past. Eight (8) denotes a new beginning, new timeline, new season, new plan. God is addressing the evil status quo of the House of Saud (bottomless pit of evil, wealth, influence, power, corruption) and ushering in the time of great wrath, the tribulation for Gentile nations. From a spiritual perspective, MBS not being one of the six (6) sons of the founding King Ibn Saud, now holds claim to being the son of perdition under the power and influence of the dragon (Satan). MBS has no allegiance to his family tree, tradition, other family princes and historical political protocol. Only an extremely evil, pathological soul manipulated by Satan would turn on his own family. In Satan’s plan, he used the ‘bottomless pit’ of evil House of Saud to raise MBS, the beast, the son of perdition to be in the positions he both currently and in future, will hold. Just as Jesus Christ had an earthly family tree and lineage, Satan used the House of Saud as the earthly family tree, lineage for his son of perdition, the beast, the coming Antichrist.

At the time John the Apostle was in the Holy Spirit and given a ‘vision’ of the future, 5 of the Saudi Kings were already dead (fallen). He was shown the sixth king, and told that a future 7th and 8th king were coming. The sixth king was a ‘sign post’ of the beginning of the ‘end times’ prior to the tribulation. The 7th King ‘short while’ in current King Salman, the last son of founder Saud. Mbs, Mohammed bin Salman is ‘Crown Prince’ and will become the 8th king (goes into perdition). MbS is the ‘Beast’ who rules during the seven (7) year tribulation and great tribulation (last 3.5 year period.) MbS (Beast now), becomes the Antichrist midway during the 7 year tribulation, at the occurrence known as the ‘Abomination of Desolation.’

King Salman brought his son, MBS into the kingdom’s political arena in 2015. 2015-2020 is also a 5 year period of Satanic influence on MBS, as he has grown in power and worldwide influence and stature among not only Western countries, but among ‘Kings of the East’, and those who worship the dragon and the beast throughout Middle East / North African countries (MENA – the ‘many’ Arabic and Islamic countries).

Mohammed bin Salman (named Crown Prince, June 2017). He is referred to scripturally as both a Prince and as a King. This is extremely unique and mentioned for a very real reason. He plays a prophetic role as Prince (when he confirms the false peace covenant among many nations throughout MENA regarding Israel and the Palestinians). Please consider that many, if not all, MENA countries are either Arabic and/or Muslim and are financially and politically beholden to Saudi Arabia in one form or another. Religiously, all these countries are beholden to the House of Saud, because it is the ‘custodian’ of Islam’s ‘holiest’ sites in Saudi Arabia. All Muslims must come for Hajj in Saudi Arabia at some point in their life, if capable (those who worship the dragon and the beast). Satanic influence is woven together and throughout ALL of these counties. They will agree to MBS’ confirmation of the covenant, as Crown Prince. They dare not come against the Crown Prince’s wish and confirmation. Thus, they will abide by his confirmation. They have every reason to accept his confirmation, because of their political, financial and religious vested interests with Saudi Arabia. ‘Who can make war or come against the Beast?’

MBS also plays a prophetic role as Saudi Arabia’s 8th King. This will likely occur before he enters the rebuilt Jewish 3rd Temple and causes the Abomination of Desolation (claims to be god and demands to be worshiped as such). Poor man wants to be rich, rich man wants to be prince, prince wants to be king, king wants to be god and rule everything. As such, MBS will likely be the Saudi’s 8th King once he sets foot in the rebuilt Jewish temple half way through the tribulation. After all, he is already the focus of ‘those who worship the dragon and the beast.’ He now wants the Jews to worship him along with the rest of the world (via the destruction of his previous accommodation and approval of the worshipping of the false mystery religions.) It’s not enough that Satan has deceived almost 2 billion Muslims. He now wants to be worshipped by the rest of the earth by Hindus, Buddhists, et.al.  Satan destroys the false ‘mystery religion’ being propagated by the False Prophet, so he can be the only focus of mankind’s worship. These false religions served their satanic purpose by deceiving men and leading men away from Christ, now is time to throw these other false religions into the fire so men are forced to worship Satan, through MBS exclusively.

Hence, MBS’ role will have changed from beast/prince to king to Antichrist at this point. He is indwelt by Satan in order for Satan to satisfy his claim that he will rise to be like the true God and to be worshipped as such. As a spiritual entity, Satan can only possess and indwell a flesh and blood human man. Satan has done everything in his power to raise MBS up through the evil bottomless pit of the House of Saud, to become a Crown Prince, to become a King, and now that Satan has possessed him to become the world-wide Antichrist. At this point, MBS is completely under Satan’s authority and power and ensues to blaspheme God and Jesus Christ.

The timing of when MBS became Crown Prince is known (June 2017). When he becomes king is when his father succumbs the throne to MBS (this could be through death or a short political reign for one reason or another – health?). The actual timing is unimportant, all we are told is that the 7th king’s reign is for a ‘short time or while.’ His term could be 5, 6, 7 or 8 years.

Where else is there a family/political dynasty on earth that has had seven (7) consecutive kings that rule a country from the same genetic line? In the Middle East? During the time of Israel’s rebirth from a valley of dry bones to a budding fig tree? Saudi Arabia’s current 7th king and future 8th king fit the Biblical narratives set forth by the Word of God. 7th and 8th kings from the bottomless pit of evil, money, power, influence, corruption (5 Satanic influences). MBS is prince when he confirms the covenant. MBS becomes an Antichrist when he is worshiped as a mujaddid by Muslims, and then becomes the worldwide Antichrist when he is indwelt by Satan.

The timing of John the Apostle’s vision regarding the 8 Kings from the bottomless pit of the House of Saud – 5 ‘fallen’, 1 ‘is current’, 2 ‘are future’.

Why is this even a topic worth mentioning? What is the point? Is there a point? Yes, there is a point. And it is VERY important, from a prophetic viewpoint. In that, it is a ‘viewing point’ of the latter days, leading up to the tribulation. How so?

First, as Christians, we know that the Triune God gave John the Apostle a vision and knowledge of many things pertaining to the days leading up to and into the tribulation and after. The Holy Spirit carried him into the future, from his particular life in time, to witness things that he then explained in his Revelation of Jesus Christ. One of the visions he was given, while in the Holy Spirit, was of the 5 kings that were fallen, a 6th king he was being shown, and that of a 7th king who had not come (but would rule for a short while at some point in the future). Lastly, he was shown a future and last 8th king known and described as the Beast who would be sent to perdition, udder destruction, the lake of fire and brimstone, the second death … alive.

I have attempted to confirm who the 7th and 8th kings are from our point in space and time, relative to the ‘season of the times.’ What about this mysterious sixth king, the king ‘who is’. Why is this king important that John the Apostle was directly being shown? And what possible prophetic importance can he have? Of the 8 kings, why would God single out this particular man?

Consider that God, through the Holy Spirit, could have shown John any or all of the Kings in future ‘real time’. He was not permitted to see the 7th or 8th kings, but only the sixth. What perhaps was God’s reason for this?

The reign of 6th King Abdullah was from 2005 to 2015. This snapshot of time and space is important because it suggests that this time frame is important for us, for Gentiles alive in the final generation. To know that we are indeed in the ‘final season’ prior to our harpazo/rapture and the onset of the tribulation, without any doubt or hesitation. We know that Israel’s prophetic time clock began in 1948. God’s prophetic time clock for the tribulation of Gentile nations suggests that it started during the time of this sixth king. It is beyond the scope of this letter to go into details about what has occurred throughout the entire earth during the time of the sixth king’s reign. Many prophetic things started being revealed over the 5 year period from 2010 to 2015. The time of the sixth king’s reign is a sign post, a flashing light, a notice of when the final season begins and is upon the earth for Gentiles. God has given signs in scripture and the heavens for Jews, and Gentiles alike. The September 23, 2017 occurrence of the ‘great sign in heaven’ is an example of a sign for the Bride of Christ. The 6th Saudi king is a Gentile and a member of the House of Saud and the bottomless pit of evil. His reign (along with all the other past 5 kings and 2 future kings) has been orchestrated by Satan during the growth of this kingdom and the discovery of its bottomless wealth (oil). To a logical mind, clear and sober, this would indicate that God is saying that the age of grace for all Gentiles on earth is coming to a close. It is not important that we don’t know if God considers 2005 or 2015 to be the beginning of the ‘season of the time before the tribulation.’ Just as God spoke generically about the rebirth of Israel, as when you ‘see the fig tree bearing fruit’, he was referring to a time frame or process developing over time. In His divine plan, things develop and take time to grow until their divine timing is ripe to be revealed. Those who can discern can watch this occur, as it happens in ‘real time’ and understand appropriately and accordingly. As God gave a general timeline for Israel, commencing in 1948, he gives a Gentile timeline commencing in 2015. This of course is BEFORE the arrival of the future 7th and 8th kings who would indicate perhaps the middle and end of the ‘Fall Season’ or Season of the Times’ prior to the rapture/harpazo for the Bride and the onset of the tribulation.’

The 7 year period from 2015 to 2022 does indeed represent a 7 year period denoting God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the modern kingship lineage (line of) of Saudi Arabia. Time for the ‘Age of Grace’ has almost ended.  As I write this letter, there is exactly only three (3) months remaining in 2019 before the world enters 2020 and a ‘new’ decade. Time is running out before the time begins of God’s great wrath on mankind and Gentile nations. We can know this with certainty by looking at the time frame witnessed by John the Apostle of the 6th king from the House of Saud. Six (6) denotes evil man/men. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose. Eight (8) denotes new era, new epoch, new season, new time span, new series of events. The 7th Saud King indicates that God is finished with Satan’s status quo in Saudi Arabia and of the evil Gentile world. The 8th Saud King indicates that God is ushering in a new time of tribulation and trial for mankind, Jews and Gentiles. Remember, the seven (7) year tribulation is also referred to as the ‘time or week of Jacob’s trouble.’ A week being seven (7) years and Jacob being a reference to Jews and Israel. God is turning his attention back onto Israel, the redemption of the Jews, wrath towards the Gentile world and arranging the coming Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
