2017 Notes

2-28-17, the Shaking

- RH December 24, 1889, Art. B., “If the people can be led to favor a Sunday law, then the clergy intend to exert their united influence to obtain a religious amendment to the Constitution, and compel the nation to keep Sunday.” It would be a big process that would draw the whole country into it. The Sunday Law that fulfills Rev. 13:11 would be an amendment to the US Constitution, without having a Constitutional Convention to do it.

- “The controversy for the Sabbath will open the subject to the people, and an opportunity will be given that the claims of the genuine Sabbath may be presented.” Therefore the arguments will begin BEFORE the “closed door” at MD.

- Problems will arise at “the great heart of the work” which today is FFA/SOTP, and there are problems!

- “The people must not be left to stumble their way along in darkness, not knowing what is before them, and unprepared for the great issues that are coming. There is a work to be done for this time in fitting a people to stand in the day of trouble, and all must act their part in this work. They must be clothed with the righteousness of Christ, and be so fortified by the truth, that the delusions of Satan shall not be accepted by them as genuine manifestations of the power of God.” {RH December 24, 1889, Art. B, par. 9} (3SM 389)

- “Go to God for yourselves, pray for divine enlightenment, that you may know that you do know what is truth, that when the wonderful miracle-working power of Satan shall be displayed, and the enemy shall come as an angel of light, you may distinguish between the genuine work of God and the imitative work of the powers of darkness.” RH December 24, 1889, Art. B, par. 11.

- Dan. 10:1, Daniel (and those like Daniel today) have understanding of both the chazon and mareh visions. First he understood the “mareh-marah” experience by his “3 touches” in Ch. 10 (when “Michael” came down at 9/11), then he understood the chazon vision from Ch. 11 onward, all BEFORE MD, the “shut door” for the “Priests”.

- “When the angel was about to unfold to Daniel the intensely interesting prophecies to be recorded for us who are to witness their fulfillment (Dan. 11:40-45), the angel said, “Be strong, yea, be strong.” We are to receive the very same glory that was revealed to Daniel, because it is for God’s people in these last days, that they may give the trumpet a certain sound.” RH December 24, 1889, Art. B, par. 13.

- Light (glory) that makes them “strong” (“the very same glory that was revealed to Daniel”) is given as a test both at the beginning and end of the movement, and the test of light & glory at the end (beginning at Dan. 11:1) will separate the “Judases” out of the movement. Dan. 11:1 (the “11 + 1 = 12 disciples” combination) is the dividing line between the foolish Judas = “1” & the wise = “11” disciples at both the beginning and the end.

- “There is need now of faithful Calebs, whose voices will be heard in clear, ringing notes, saying of the immortal inheritance, “Let us go up at once and possess it, for we are well able.” BEFORE Caleb was about to go up against Jericho, which is the first SL or “closed door” at MD.

- “We need now the courage of God’s faithful servant of old; not one wavering, uncertain note should come from the watchers’ trumpets. They must be true to the sacred, solemn work that has been intrusted to them, and lead the flock of God in right pathways.” {RH December 24, 1889, Art. B, par. 13}

 

2-27-17, The Latter Rain

- Each of the 7 Waymarks (darkness, 1989, 9/11, MD, MC, SL) has its own characteristics, so you can’t move the characteristics of 9/11 to MD.

- Jer. 6:16-17, the old paths = rest. Isa. 28:12, rest = refreshing. Acts 3:19,  refreshing = blotting out of sins & coming of Jesus. GC 611, former rain at the opening of the gospel to be exceeded by the latter rain at its close, and the refreshing is the latter rain. Joel 2:23, 1d1m = both Early & Latter Rain at 9/11 since 1d1m (Ezra 7:9) is the beginning of the “Priests” “coming out of Babylon”.

- Class discusses the relationship between the Early/Former Rain and the Latter Rain, and other symbols.

- 9/11 is the first Waymark in history where all 4 Angels appear. New light has to be consistent with, and actually has to grow out of, what was revealed before as “old light”.

- Tyler points out that the typical temple was actually completed before the 3rd Decree of Artaxerxes was given, and the 3rd Decree is symbolic of the SL or MD. Therefore the character of the “Priests” has to be perfected BEFORE MD (both individually and corporately), which destroys the logic of the “Omega movement”, which is the “Tree of Life Ministries”.

- The Millerite “old paths” are the 1843 & 1850 charts, and our new light grows out of them. EGW connects the 1843 chart with Hab. 2:2 & Eze. 12:21 which has the “effect of every vision” statement. The “Tree of Life Ministries” claims the “effect of every vision” is after MD.

- Jer. 16:17, re. “the trumpet warning” must apply before MD.

- Isa. 58:1, the “trumpet-warning message” is applied by EGW to the church of “Laodicea”, and must be before MD.

- Isa. 58:12, “build the old waste places”, “raise up the foundations of many generations”, “repair the breach”, “restore the paths to dwell in” (Jer. 6:16),  Acts 3:21, “the restitution of all things”.

- To “raise up the foundations of many generations” means to use the “line-upon-line” Reformlines, and all the Reformlines put the “foundation” at the 9/11 Waymark.

- But Jer. 6:16, “But they said, “We will not walk therein.”

 

 

2-26-17, Tamina, Judgment of the Living

- We need prophecy to build our faith, to tell us where we are in the line of history, and to help us prepare for the Day of the Lord and Jesus’ coming. It is marked by events that are “waymarks” in our prophetic timeline. GW 103, Satan is trying to tear down the waymarks of truth.

- “The old waymarks must be preserved, that we lose not our bearings.” Letter 395, 1906, p. 4. (To Elder S. M. Cobb, December 25, 1906.) {1MR 55.3}

- “The great waymarks of truth, showing us our bearings in prophetic history, are to be carefully guarded, lest they be torn down, and replaced with theories that would bring confusion rather than genuine light.” {2SM 101.1}

- The taking away of “the daily” in 508 AD by paganism is a Waymark that has been “torn down and replaced with theories that would bring confusion rather than genuine light”, ie. the “Christ’s sanctuary ministry” teaching in the SDA GC churches.

- 9/11 is another Waymark that has been “torn down and replaced with theories that would bring confusion rather than genuine light”, ie. that the events of 9/11 are to happen after MD within this Present Truth movement.

- “Today Satan is seeking opportunities to tear down the waymarks of truth,—the monuments that have been raised up along the way; and we need the experience of the aged workers who have built their house upon the solid rock, who through evil report as well as good report have been steadfast to the truth.” {GW 103.1}

- “Men and women will arise professing to have some new light or some new revelation whose tendency is to unsettle faith in the old landmarks. Their doctrines will not bear the test of God’s word, yet souls will be deceived.” {CCh 344.4}

- According to the “Omega movement” they now claim that the judgment of the living begins at MD, but from the beginning of this movement the “Foundation Laid” Waymark has always been at 9/11.

- Understanding that the KS includes Russia rather than just atheism shows a growth in understanding, not changing or moving the Waymark of 1989.

- The difference in the two views of 9/11 put the Judgment of the Living beginning either in our past or in the future. The “Omega movement” puts it off into the future, effectually saying, “My Lord delayeth His coming” and is a dangerous “peace and safety” message.

- “Whatever may be man’s intellectual advancement, let him not for a moment think that there is no need of thorough and continuous searching of the Scriptures for greater light. As a people we are called individually to be students of prophecy. We must watch with earnestness that we may discern any ray of light which God shall present to us. We are to catch the first gleamings of truth; and through prayerful study clearer light may be obtained, which can be brought before others.” {5T 708.2}

- “I have been shown that many who profess to have a knowledge of present truth know not what they believe. They do not understand the evidences of their faith. They have no just appreciation of the work for the present time. When the time of trial shall come, there are men now preaching to others who will find, upon examining the positions they hold, that there are many things for which they can give no satisfactory reason. Until thus tested they knew not their great ignorance. And there are many in the church who take it for granted that they understand what they believe; but, until controversy arises, they do not know their own weakness. When separated from those of like faith and compelled to stand singly and alone to explain their belief, they will be surprised to see how confused are their ideas of what they had accepted as truth. Certain it is that there has been among us a departure from the living God and a turning to men, putting human in place of divine wisdom.” {5T 707.2}

- Joseph & Daniel stood before the kings at “MD” to answer for their faith. 1 Cor. 13:13, faith comes in order before hope and charity.

- Our first test of our “faith” is to accept 9/11 at the “empowerment” of the 1st Angel (Aug. 11, 1840, Moses & circumcision, Nehemiah coming out of Babylon, etc.).

- “God will arouse His people; if other means fail, heresies will come in among them, which will sift them, separating the chaff from the wheat. The Lord calls upon all who believe His word to awake out of sleep. Precious light has come, appropriate for this time. It is Bible truth, showing the perils that are right upon us. This light should lead us to a diligent study of the Scriptures and a most critical examination of the positions which we hold. God would have all the bearings and positions of truth thoroughly and perseveringly searched, with prayer and fasting. Believers are not to rest in suppositions and ill-defined ideas of what constitutes truth. Their faith must be firmly founded upon the word of God so that when the testing time shall come and they are brought before councils to answer for their faith they may be able to give a reason for the hope that is in them, with meekness and fear.” {5T 707.3}

- “Precious light has come, appropriate for this time”, which is the recent new light on the early verses of Dan. 11 that shed new light on the last verses of Dan. 11, just before their fulfillment soon.

- The Signs of the Times, October 23,1879, Art. B; A “bogus sanctification” theory is making people too independent and they refuse guidance from either appointed leaders or the rest of “the body” of believers. Such ones can be identified by how they draw one or two persons away from a lecture being given by an appointed speaker in order to show off their marvelous “new light”.

- God is now putting together a necessary organization that will help the work of the gospel in the future. God needs an organized “army” to carry forward the work of the “Church Triumphant” in the near future.

- The need for a “Judgment of the Living” is obvious because when Jesus comes He brings His reward with Him. Therefore those who receive His reward must be already judged and chosen while the people were still alive. 

- Class discusses the testing time for the “Priests” before their final test at MD.

2-23-17, 9/11 or Midnight

- According to the “Omega movement” newsletter they now claim that the judgment of the living begins at MD (along with practically everything else), but from the beginning of this movement the “Foundation Laid” Waymark has always been at 9/11. To do otherwise is to move the Waymarks, which is condemned by EGW.

- Review of the 5 “foundation works” (recognize, eat & give the message, organize and everlasting gospel) between 9/11 & MD for the “church militant”, and adds “a special work of putting away of sin” (GC 425) so the “Priests” can be purified and ready for the full outpouring of the Latter Rain at MD (the closed door for the “Priests”) and the beginning of the Church Triumphant.

- Mt. 13:14, Jesus referred to Isa. 6:10, “eyes that see not” before the “closing door process” began just before MD, but His disciples were given the message more directly. When Isaiah asks “How long” the answer is until the “door closes” (at MD when an event typifying the SL happens), and “Jerusalem” is actually destroyed at the SL (Isa. 6:11, 10:25, Jer. 44:4).

- RH 6-4-89, Isaiah saw “God’s glory” the “manifestation of God’s power” from 9/11 > MD, which is also 1840 > 1844, and at first saw himself as “unworthy” for the “work”. And there is a “counterfeit work”, so we need to know what the “true work” is (GC 464).

- GC 430, rejecting the knowledge of what Jesus is doing in the MHP for our benefit now (judging the living now since 9/11, not after MD), is salvational. Those “foolish Priests” who reject the opportunity for their final purification going on now (before MD arrives and the “door shuts” for the “Priests”) will be lost forever.

- RH 4-21-91, “The latter rain is to fall upon the people of God. A mighty angel is to come down from heaven, and the whole earth is to be lighted with his glory.” It is the “latter rain” that comes with the “mighty angel” (Rev. 18) when “the whole earth is to be lighted with his glory” not primarily the “former rain”.

- The “Omega movement” is trying to erase 9/11 as a prophetic marker.

- Ezra 7:9 says he went “out of Babylon” on 1d1m, which we put at 9/11, and Joel 2:23 says in the “first month” that BOTH early & latter rain would be given, and Acts 3:19-20 says the “blotting out of sins” happens at the “refreshing” of the Latter Rain, when “He shall send Jesus” (in Rev. 10 & Rev. 18). To not send our sins “beforehand” “to judgment” (1 Tim. 5:24) during the “blotting out of sins” (from 9/11 > MD), is to die.

- Zech. 10:1, “ask” for the “rain in the time of the latter rain”; but how can you do that if you’re not sure when the “time of the latter rain” is? It is so dangerous to say “my lord delayeth His coming” (Mt. 24:48)! It is a fatal “peace & safety” message!

- Eze. 37, the “wind” that revives the dry bones is “breath”, which typifies the Holy Spirit (Jn. 20:22), which is as the “rain” (5BC 1151, 3SOP 243). Lk, 21, the “budding trees of Spring” at 9/11 came as a result of the “rain”. 

- “John says, ‘I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.’ (Rev. 18) Then, as at the Pentecostal season, the people will hear the truth spoken to them, every man in his own tongue.” {6BC 1055.5}… as is happening now, before “MD”.

- “I have no specific time of which to speak when the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will take place—when the mighty angel will come down from heaven and unite with the third angel in closing up the work for this world. My message is that our only safety is in being ready for the heavenly refreshing, having our lamps trimmed and burning.” —Selected Messages 1:192 (1892). {LDE 194.3}

- 3T 266, (refusing a just rebuke closes our eyes to discern sin.) “The spirit of hatred which has existed with some because the wrongs among God’s people have been reproved has brought blindness and a fearful deception upon their own souls, making it impossible for them to discriminate between right and wrong. They have put out their own spiritual eyesight. They may witness wrongs, but they do not feel as did Joshua and humble themselves because the danger of souls is felt by them.

“The true people of God, who have the spirit of the work of the Lord and the salvation of souls at heart, will ever view sin in its real, sinful character. They will always be on the side of faithful and plain dealing with sins which easily beset the people of God. Especially in the closing work for the church, in the sealing time of the one hundred and forty-four thousand who are to stand without fault before the throne of God, will they feel most deeply the wrongs of God’s professed people. This is forcibly set forth by the prophet’s illustration of the last work under the figure of the men each having a slaughter weapon in his hand.” {3T 266.2}

- Therefore, the “fruits” of the “tares” are visible before MD, contrary to the claims of the “Omega movement”.

 

 

 

2-22-17, Sign of Jonah

- Class considers an email with questions concerning the Transfiguration being at 9/11, and whether 9/11 is a “type” for subsequent events.

- AA 18, a review of Christ’s “ordination” of the disciples at 9/11, which included Judas, so then the “work” of “organization” had to be done before Judas falls away just before MD.

-Trumpets; the Day of Atonement was on Oct. 22, 1844, but 10 days before were for the blowing of trumpets, and a day before that for “practice”. The parallel is that Miller was ordained to preach by the Baptists 11 years before 1844, and then ordained by all the denominations in 1834, who then “lifted up his voice” as a trumpet (Isa. 58).

- Eze. 2:8-10 at 9/11, the “work” is of eating the “hidden manna” from the Angel of Rev. 18 (whose glory fills the world), then carrying this message to Adventism, which produces the final and “most glorious” “everlasting gospel 3-step separation” in history. Therefore the Rev. 18 “glory” after 9/11 is the “most glorious” manifestation of the power of God in the history of the Great Controversy in this world.

- The “work” is to 1) Recognize the Latter Rain when it comes, marked by the “event” of 9/11 (restraint of Islam), and thereafter recognize the “budding trees of Spring”. 2) Take & eat the “little book”/hidden manna, etc. 3) Take the message to Adventism. 4) Get organized when you have enough messengers. 5) Then the “everlasting gospel”, as “Christ” through His messengers, separates the “wheat & tares”.

- “Sign of Jonah” (DA 407), is both Islam (the reluctant, angry prophet who hates his hearers. Islam can be both a blessing and a curse); and also the Holy Spirit-Dove, but the message needs to be balanced, not overemphasizing one to the exclusion of the other. Mt. 16:17, “Simon bar-Jonah” means “hearing, the son of, the dove”, and the “Son of the Dove” is Christ, who became the Messiah at His baptism at “9/11”. Therefore after 9/11, the revelation of Christ in His people (all the “Simons”) is also the “sign of Jonah” to the “wicked generation” v. 4.  

- The “wicked” 4th Generation of Adventism (Laodicea) is at 9/11, but also the “chosen generation” (Ephesus/White Horse) of the “Priests” (1 Pet. 2:9). The “chosen” have to “separate the precious from the vile” first in their own experience, and then separate the two classes in the SDA Church by their message (Jer. 15:19), which has to happen BEFORE the “door closes” at MD.

 

 

2-21-17, Isa. 6

- The “Omega movement” at the Wales meetings claimed that Isa. 6 happens at the MD Waymark rather than at 9/11 (though 9/11 does typify MD).

- Starting with Isa. 7 > 8:8, Ahaz = MC, Hezekiah = SL.

- Isa. 8:8, 2 Ki. 18:13, Isa. 10:5, king of Assyria = KN = papacy = SL.

- 2 Ki. 19:31, at the MC, the old covenant people in “Jerusalem” = SDA “church militant” is going down while the new covenant people in “Jerusalem” = “remnant-Church Triumphant” is coming up.

- Hezekiah & Zedekiah both symbolize the Sunday Law. With Hezekiah Jerusalem is saved, but with Zedekiah Jerusalem is destroyed, so they are “parallel kings” at the SL.

- Review of the last 7 kings of Judah (7 Thunders) as applied to our Reformline: #1) Manasseh (1989 = line-upon-line understanding), #2) Amon (~1991 = last 6 verses of Dan. 11), #3) Josiah (1996 = TOE mag), #4/5) Jehoahaz/Jehoiakim = 9/11 , #6) Jehoiachin = MC, #7) Zedekiah = SL.

- The 7 kings before Manasseh may fit on our final (7 Thunders) Reformline too: #1) Ahaziah = 1989 (Queen Athaliah doesn’t count, or she could be #1 because of her mass-murders like Manasseh), #2) Jehoash = 1991, #3) Amaziah = 1996, #4/5) Uzziah/Jotham = 9/11, #6) Ahaz = MC, #7) Hezekiah = SL.

- Therefore Isa. 6:1, “the year that king Uzziah died” (and Jotham began to reign) has to be 9/11 because of the parallel dual kings Jehoahaz/Jehoiakim.

- The “Omega movement” statement re. Isa. 6 being at 9/11 redefined the word “glory” (from Rev. 18 because Rev. 18 began to be fulfilled at 9/11) to something that couldn’t be identified as happening at 9/11.  One needs to correctly define what the “glory” was that began to “lighten the whole earth” at 9/11.

- GC 611, the “glory” of the Rev. 18 angel must be a “work” of “worldwide” extent, and “unwonted power” parallel to the 1st Angel’s message in the Millerite time, “similar to the day of Pentecost”, which is fulfilled by this “Present Truth” movement that has gone to every continent since 9/11 and is growing by leaps & bounds, and it is not MD yet.  

- The GC 611 reference to “touching the lips with a coal” (Isa. 6) refers to the purifying experience of the “mareh-marah” vision before “MD” too, which is another counter-point to the Omega movement claim that there can be NO total victory over sin until AFTER MD. (The truth is that the “Priests” have to be cleansed free from sin BEFORE MD [at the first {weak} Sunday Law], which represents “glorification” for them, when they figuratively go into the Most Holy Place before the Lord on the Day of Atonement and “not die”. Then the same process continues with the “Levites” & “11th hr. workers”).

- GC 611 quotes Joel 2:23, the Omega movement claims the Former Rain began at 9/11 and the Latter Rain begins at MD (therefore no “Latter Rain” victory over sin until after MD). GC 611 says the Former Rain was at Pentecost at the beginning of the Christian Church, which Jeff applies to 1989 (the beginning of this Present Truth movement), and Latter Rain for ripening the harvest (& victory over sin) beginning at 9/11.

- Question: When the Angel of Rev. 18 came down at 9/11 what “book” did he have? … Parallel to the Angel of Rev. 10 who had a book. (The Angel of Rev. 18 had to have a “book” [of “hidden manna”] because all the angels have a writing [message] the prophet must read [eat, and then give to others], when they come down to enlighten men).

- Answer: The Angel of Rev. 10 came down at 8-11-44 (at the restraint of Islam), therefore the “book” had to be about Islam, which is in Rev. 9, not in Daniel. Therefore the parallel Angel that comes down at 9/11 (the Rev. 18 Angel) has to have a message about Islam too.

- Joel 2:13, “first month” = 1d1m = 9/11, so BOTH the Early & Latter Rain come in the “first month”. BOTH have to be present for the “Priests” BEFORE MD, because the “door closes” at MD for the “Priests”.

- Omega movement claims nothing really important happens between 9/11 & MD, but the true “glory” of the Angel of Rev. 18, that began to “lighten the whole earth” was the “worldwide work” that began at 9/11, not something visual that happened on that day.

- In the “Alpha apostasy”, commenting on the book “Living Temple”, EGW pointed out that one of its errors led some fanatical people to believe it was “a sin to work”, as the Omega movement is claiming now, denying that the “work” that began after 9/11 is the “glory” of 9/11. 

- Part of the “work” after 9/11 is the building of the true “Temple”, which is the “work” of ORGANIZATION which the Omega movement is attacking.

- DA 291.2, Christ chose His first “5 wise virgin” disciples right after His baptism, at “9/11”, which was the beginning of the ORGANIZATION of His Christian Church. They are divided into “2 + 3”, both “in the first month”; parallel to the “5 foolish virgins” who are also divided into “2 + 3”, some with “light & power” but no “love, joy & peace”, and others with a false “love, joy & peace” but no “light & power” (EW 56).

 

2-20-17, 3-Fold Union

- Following the Pattern of Christ to identify the 3-fold union:

- At MD “Judas” = foolish Priests join with the “Sanhedrin” (2 parts: Pharisees + Sadducees) = SDA GC. Rome = USA.

- At the MC “Judas” = nominal religions (2 parts: SDA/Sanhedrin + Protestants) join with USA = Dragon. Rome = Beast.

- At the SL “Judas” = apostate Protestantism (2 parts: SDA/Sanhedrin + Protestants) joined with USA = False Prophet. U.N. = Dragon. Rome = Beast.

- At MD “Raphia” = 161 BC, “Jews” league with Rome.

- At the MC “Panium” = strong delusion, spiritualism, and “Actium” = 1st Sunday Law. 158 BC, Rome works deceitfully, churches become the “daughters of Babylon”.

- With the election of Trump apostate Protestantism effectively has control of all 3 branches of the US. Gov’t, and the “Image of the Beast” test has begun for the “Priests”.

- Discussion of the idea of a process of time in the closing of probation around the world.

 

2-19-17, Tamina, Wheat & Tares

- Class suggests times that fit from the MC > SL = 360 yrs. = 360 degrees, maybe also Enoch’s 365 years.

- Esther 1:4, “180 days” from 9/11 > MC, then “7 days” for the excluded ones, the “Priests” to the SL.  There are also 180 degrees in a rainbow, if placed from 9/11 then would end at the MD > MC time, where God’s throne is located, referring to her previous class.

- Wheat & Tares: at 9/11 the 1st Angel is empowered, 2nd Angel arrives (along with the 4th Angel of Rev. 18) and the 3rd Angel (who arrived in 1844) is also empowered. Review of the Millerite Reformline in order to place the original positions of the 4 Angels, with the Millerite Waymarks repeating at 9/11, SL, COP.

- In the Millerite time at the beginning of Adventism the Arrival & Empowerment of the 3 Angels are separate events, though some happen at the same time, but in our time now at the end of Adventism the Arrivals & Empowerments of the 4 Angels now overlap, “blend”, and repeat on smaller scales as “fractals” and can cause confusion.

- As the 4 Angel’s messages blend at 9/11 so the “Early Rain” & “Latter Rain” both begin at 9/11 for us (GC 611) the “times [plural] of refreshing” (Acts 3:19-20), and the beginning of the Judgment of the Living. The Early & Latter Rain message is the same message, that of Jer. 6:16, our SDA “old paths” (as they appear on the 1843 & 1850 Charts) which are actually new again after being forgotten.

- Question: How can the Early Rain sprout new growth at the same time the Latter Rain is ripening a harvest? (Dan. 2:20-21), God can “change times & seasons” to do spiritual things that are usually impossible in the natural world.

- 1989 began the “plowing” time (for the “Priests”) before the 9/11 “rains” time, and during the “rains” there is the “blade, ear & full corn in the ear”, and then the “harvest” beginning at MD.

- Sometime after 9/11 and before the “harvest” begins at MD, the “full corn” begins to appear in contrast to the “tares” in the field (Mt. 13), which has already caused a “shaking”,  and the “Judases” will be gathered together and “bound off”, and fall away and leave the “disciples” just before MD.

- A current argument is that the servants who identify the tares are wicked servants for doing so, but in the parable the master only rebukes them for wanting to pull them up (COL 71.2), not for just identifying the tares. Those who can’t tell the difference are “blind Laodiceans” and need “eyesalve” (Rev. 3:18).

- At the “harvest” the “firstfruits” offering (of the “Priests”) has to be fully mature and ripened, before it is “cut off from every earthly support” (DA 121), meaning that it is cut off from its parent plant and its roots in the earth. Therefore to claim that there is still sin in the “Priests” after MD is a “peace & safety” message of doom.

- “Wheat” & “Tares” are symbols of both people (wise & foolish virgins), and doctrine (truth & error), and according to Miller’s Rules truth and symbols are determined by their context in the Bible.

- Also, “by their fruits ye shall know them”, and the “fruit” must be an open sin. Therefore, if it is evident by the Bible that someone is teaching error then it is an open sin and they must be reproved by teaching the truth (not by personal attacks) so others will not follow them. “Tares” try to root each other up while thinking that they themselves are “wheat”. God also allows heresies to come in to separate the chaff from the wheat (5T 707).

 

2-15-17, Mt. 16, part 2

- (Dan. 11:10, Jeff reviews many of the connections; “overflow”, “to” his fortress, Russia & Raphia, the fact that “God is removing his hand” and new light on these verses show the opening of the 7th Seal, the Millerite 7th Seal, the final Seal just before probation closes.)

- Mt. 16:13, Panium/Paneas was later renamed “Caesarea Philippi” and therefore connects with the history of Panium. 9/11 marked the beginning of the “sign of Jonah” & warning re. false doctrines, and the “binding off”, but also a prediction of the “loosening” of Islam. Moses gave Pharaoh a prediction for the next day before each plague.

- V. 16-19, the “keys of the kingdom of heaven” are the beginning of organization, as a covenant & foundation (DA 421.3) for the new Church (Christ’s guarantee of victory in the Great Controversy). Then Peter illustrates the “everlasting gospel” by portraying unbelief as well as faith, all before MD.

- Mt. 17, (Mt. 16 = events of 1 day), then 6 more days until the “8th” day and the “transfiguration” at MD. (DA 419), the Transfiguration parallels Gethsemane, same 3 disciples are present. V.9, vision = “mareh-marah”. Jesus gave His disciples the “keys” of His Word to strengthen them BEFORE their “MD”, as He has been giving His “keys” to us to strengthen us BEFORE our “MD”. (Omega group holds that no relevant learning or organization can happen before MD.)

- Tamina observes that in Miller’s 2nd dream the true jewels were separated from the false jewels that went out the window and cleaned and “organized” in the casket, BEFORE they shone “10x” brighter (at both MD & MC).

- Tyler notes that the disciples understood Jesus’ person as the Son of God, but not yet His work as the Messiah (which suggests that our present position is similar).

- Jeff reminds us that all this new light is in reference to Panium/Paneas/Caesarea Philippi in the context of the argument that nothing of importance can be known or will happen before MD.

- The authority that Jesus has given the “Present Truth” movement through His prophetic Word makes the very “prediction” that we make (that Russia & Islam will defeat the USA at MD), “loose” or “free” them to do it. That is, AFTER or WHEN we make the “prediction”, THEN they are “loosed” to fulfill it.

- That Russia & Islam will defeat the USA at MD will be a huge surprise & disappointment for the papacy (he and us both assumed for years that Russia was no longer a player for world-domination). Therefore the Pope will have to come out from behind his curtain of neutrality to prop up his proxy, the USA, so he can continue with his plans to rule the world through the U.N. with the USA as the leading member.

 

2-14-17, Mt. 16

- Jeff lays out the plan for the student-speakers at the March Campmeeting/Prophecy School: Dan. 11:1 = TOE. V.2, 16-22 = First & Last Presidents” chiasm. V.3-5 = parallel kingdoms. V.6-9 = 538 > 1798. V.10 = Russia & 7th Seal/hand removed. V. 11-12 = MD at Raphia, KS slaughters Jews, the “sign”. V.13-15 = MC at Panium. V.14 = Rome establishes the vision. V.23 = league at MD. V.24, 27, 29-30 = appointed time, Dan. 3 image 6 x 60 = 360 > SL. V.31-36 = 1260. V.37-39 = fathers.

- In reviewing the “First & Last Presidents” chiasm Jeff adds some info re. Abraham Lincoln, the 19th President and first Republican as parallel to Trump, and his assassination = death of the USA as the 6th kingdom of prophecy.

- Mt. 16, sign of Jonah, wicked generation, leaven, perceived, doctrine. Panium/MD-MC = Caesaria Philippi, Peter’s confession = beginning of the Christian Church/Church Triumphant.

- V.17, Simon Bar-Jonah = hearing the dove at the baptism at 9/11, the “sign of Jonah to a wicked & adulterous nation” = Caesaria Philippi most wicked city = gates of hell = temples to Augustus Caesar & especially to the forest-god Pan which was built into a crevice in the wall of the city = Mt. Hermon/Panium = Sion, “bottomless pit” spring = gates of hell, which is the origin of the Jordan River. V.23 = everlasting gospel illustration.

- V. 18, Jesus probably surnamed Simon “Peter” in Hebrew or Aramaic, but it was written in Greek, then translated into English. The placement of the letters of “Peter” in the English alphabet multiplied together = 144k which is “Christ” the Rock, which the “gates of hell” of Pan at Panium/Caesaria Philippi will not prevail against at the MC. 

- (The Greek letter “phi” as in Philippi is used as a symbol in a great many mathematical, chemistry, literary & all kinds of scientific uses. Phi = 1.618 = Mt. 16:18 = “golden mean” = Fibonacci sequence through 144k to infinity. There is also an “anti-phi” mathematical term which is “anti-everything” = 666. 6 x 6 x 6 x 666 = 143,856 which is 144 short of the perfection of 144k, which is a close counterfeit, “the track of truth lies close beside the track of error” 1SM 202.)

- v.19, the “gates of hell” of Pan at Panium/Caesaria Philippi will not prevail against the Church Triumphant at the MC because Jesus gave the “keys” of authority to “bind” (or close & lock) the “gates of hell” at the MC. 

- Then Ch. 17, the “marah” vision.

 

2-9-17, Prophetic Lines in Dan. 11

- Prophetic Lines in Dan. 11 are: V.2, 16-22 = 4 Presidents. v.3-16 = Greece. V.5, 16-14, 40-45 = 3 obstacles.

- v. 13-15 with v.14 in the middle (from Raphia to Panium) are possibly the most important lines in all of Bible prophecy because Rome “establishes the vision”, and the climax of Rome’s involvement in world affairs is portrayed in these verses (“working of the man of sin are the last features” 2SM 102).

- v. 13-15, 21-28, 37-39 = Military & economic buildup.

- V. 23-27 = Treaties. The Jews made a league with Rome which resulted in them being conquered by Rome. Comparison is made to 2 Chron. 16, Asa made a league with Syria instead of trusting in God, therefore he was to have wars for the rest of his life. 1989, the USA made an alliance with Rome, therefore will have wars to the end.

- v. 14, 16-20 = Rome forced to come out of the background to deal with the KS.

- v. 24-30 = Time appointed & Returnings.

- A hazy area in Dan. 11 is in V. 15, KS (Russia) has “chosen people” who are defeated with him. v.17, who is the “woman” (besides Cleopatra), and who is giving her, getting her and corrupting her? Wasn’t she corrupt already? V.17, Who are the “upright ones” besides the Jews?  V.18, “reproach” who & what? (Isa. 4:1, “in that day” churches reproached at the SL. Isa. 2:1, “last days” the mountain of the Lord to be exalted beginning at the MC). v.23, who are the “small people”? Rome & the USA both begin as a “small people”. V.24, who “scatters among them the prey, spoil & riches”? v.28 & 30, what are the “two returns” in each verse? V. 29, “the time appointed” 31 BC + 360 “time” = 330 AD, capitol moved to Constantinople after the SL, battles of Panium & Actium at the MC. v. 37 (repeat & enlarge), “the desire of women” & “exalt himself” (v.14).

 

2-8-17, Dan. 11:14

- Jeff acknowledges there are differing opinions on some of the new light that is opening up lately, which is just part of the revelation of truth process anyway, but there is some confusion among the students which is distracting their attention from the continuing flow of light. When the teacher who has brought up a new idea is shown that it’s a bad idea that creates confusion he needs to be humble enough to publicly retract it and then teach correctly.

- There is some confusion re. the “binding off” from MD > MC about when the “Priests” have victory over sin at MD, whether it is known sins or our propensity to sin, or sinful nature, or even if the victory is a process that begins at MD and continues for 3 steps, which leaves 7 other steps that add up to “10”.

- That the numbers 3, 7, 8, 10 all connect together is settled truth. 3 (kings or plagues) + 7 (kings or plagues) = 10 (kings or plagues), and “the 8th is of the 7”. It is in the riddle of Rev. 17, and also in the chiasm of the first & last US Presidents for examples.

- If those who teach the existence of sin for the “Priests” beyond MD do not quickly amend their error then it will become not just a distracting error but a counterfeit of truth because it uses symbols that are settled truth. The confusion gets students to focus on the MD > MC time which is distracting them from focusing on the time BEFORE MD which is our time of victory over sin and preparation for the crisis at MD.

- Addressing the verses having to do with Greece (v.3-19), Jeff points out that the placement of v.14 (where Rome engages in the Macedonian Wars at about 200 BC, & then tells Seleucid Antiochus IV Epiphanes to back off from Egypt in 168 BC) ahead of where Rome actually interacts with God’s people (a Millerite principle) in 161-158 BC, creates a conflict with Millerite logic.

- As with Jezebel at the confrontation with Elijah on Mt. Carmel, Rome stays in the background “pulling the strings” until she is “forced” onto center stage to deal with crisis events having to do with the KS, as with Pompey, Julius Caesar & Octavius/Augustus.

- The parallel is that the Papacy has to “come out from behind the curtain” after Russia (KS), in an anti-typical “Battle of Raphia” unexpectedly defeats the USA (as Rome’s proxy KN), in order to prop up the USA.

- Wikipedia on Rome’s Macedonian Wars: Historians[7] see the growing Roman influence over the east, as with the west, not as a matter of intentional empire-building, but constant crisis management narrowly focused on accomplishing short-term goals within a highly unstable, unpredictable, and inter-dependent network of alliances and dependencies.”

- v.21, Trump as the “vile” = despised/hated one, who “comes in peaceably” and uses “flatteries”, and v.24, also “peaceably”, and uses treaties (“The Art of the Deal”), diplomats, and shares the wealth with other nations as an incentive to cooperate with him.

- Jeff explains a bit about the book, “Ecclesiastical Megalomania” by Tim Robbins. Catholicism hates Protestantism, and the private property rights in Capitalism (because Catholicism is religious Communism).

- Prophetic Lines in Dan. 11 are: v.3-16 = Greece. V. 16-19 = 3 horns. V.2, 16-22 = 4 Presidents. V.14-36 = Rome’s self-exaltation & end. V.37-39 = v. 14, Rome’s self-exaltation again in “a strange god” (via Mariolatry originally, but now the parallel is that Rome will be “forced” to exalt the hated “god” of  Capitalism/mammon to prop up its USA proxy). Shocking prediction!!!

 

2-7-17, Dan. 11:1-39, the “External”, world-wide view.

- Need of adjusting some minor inaccuracies on the 6 Syrian wars while reading through Dan. 11.

- V.1 = TOE. V.2 = last 4 Presidents. V.3-4 = parallel kingdoms (6th going down, 7th coming up). V.5 = KN established, 3rd obstacle. V. 6-9 = Dan. 11:40a (KS pushes the KN, but then a peace treaty). V.10 = 40b, 1989. V.11-12 = MD, Raphia. V.13-15 = MC, Panium (v.14 is parenthetical). V.16-19 = 3 obstacles for Pagan Rome (Pompey & Julius). V.20-22 = Augustus, Tiberius & the Cross. (in the USA, South = Dems/Socialists/Obama, and North = GOP/Evangelicals/Trump.)

- Rev. 11:8, atheistic France, an “internal” USA view. Sodom = Church (Isa.1:9) > USA apostate Protestantism/Evangelicals = KN; and Egypt = Dragon/State (Eze. 29:3) > USA fallen Republicanism = KS.

- The USA-KN/Church/Evangelicals has to “conquer 3 obstacles” (Legislative, Judicial, Executive) to get control of the USA-KS/State = the Image of the Beast (DONE in the Evangelicals’ control of TRUMP) in order to make the US Gov’t “speak” the SL = Mark of the Beast, at the MC.

- The USA-KN/Church/Evangelicals already effectively control the GOP & TRUMP. Therefore the “Image of the Beast” test is being set up now (2SM 80), and the suggestion is made that we MAY be PAST the MD Waymark already! The “Priests” must be setting up the “Image of Christ” in their hearts fully now, and reflecting His character.

- v.22 = Augustus, Tiberius & the Cross = Obama, Trump & the SL.

- v.23 = Jews league with Rome = “Judas Priests” (Pharisees) league with the SDA GC (Sadducees) and then league with the US Gov’t (KN) at MD to persecute the “wise Priests” (via taxes most likely). But then the Evangelicals (woman) who control the US Gov’t (Beast) will demand that the SDA GC & “Judas Priests” obey the SL. When the SDA GC knuckles under the SL then the “Levites” will wake up.

- V.24 = Actium/”time”. V.25-27 = after MD a peace truce & preparation for Actium at the MC. V.28-29 = two returnings; Actium = MC & 66-70 AD = SL. V.30-31 = Islam, Papal Rome (533 AD) & SL. “Sanctuary polluted” = US Constitution, “daily” taken away = opposition of Protestantism to the papacy is taken away and the “abomination is placed” under one head = SL. V.32-36 = Dan. 11:44-45. V.37-39 = Mariolatry & v.14 onward, dividing the land for gain.

 

2-6-17, Three, Seven & Ten

- Isa. 7:8, the “head” of a nation is its capital city and its king. Isa. 8:8, Sennacherib came up to the “neck” = the capital city of Jerusalem but didn’t get the “head”. Dan. 11:10 & 11:40 are the same, tied together by the Hebrew “overflow and pass over”. The KN defeats the KS but the capital is not taken. v.9, “ye shall be broken in pieces” x3 = 3-fold union of spiritualism (B,D,FP). But there is a separation of classes; v.10, “God is with us” = the Incarnation in His people at the Ch. Triumphant at MD. v. 14, a KN test for “both houses of Israel” = both “Priests” & “Levites”. v.16, the “sealing time” and v.17, “waiting time”, and v.18 they are a “sign”.

- Jeff reviews the parallel chiastic structure beginning with the Presidents of the USA: first there are 7 (until the Articles of Confederation mark the 7th which is the first of “10”, which is also “the 8th and is of the seven”; Rev. 17:11, Dan. 2:42, 7:8, 8:9. Rome, the “8th horn”, is always the 8th).

- Then “10 kings” up to Geo. Washington who was the first under the US Constitution, and “far richer than they all” through Real-Estate. The other side of the chiasm is that Trump (the 45th) who also is “far richer than they all” through Real-Estate, will be the last under the US Constitution, followed by the U.N./NWO which is the “10 kings who have no kingdom as yet” (Rev. 17:12), which will be followed by “the 8th and is of the seven” which is Modern Global Rome, parallel to Ancient Pagan Rome, all “external” events. 

- When you take the last “10 kings” and overlay them on the first “10 Presidents” the number “10” is doubled between the MC & SL Waymarks giving confirmation. When the USA is going down as the 6th kingdom of Bible prophecy at the MC we see the U.N. coming up as the 7th kingdom of Bible prophecy during the time of the 10 kings, so from the MC > SL there are “parallel kingdoms”, and then the U.N. gives itself to the Beast at the SL which becomes the 8th kingdom of Bible prophecy, or Modern Global Rome. The “Articles of Confederation” parallel the “confederation” that comes together at the MC.

- The Battle of Actium in 31 BC parallels the Battle of Panium in 200 BC at the MC; the KS is swept away, and the KN rules for “a time” = 360 = Image of the Beast = Dan. 3 = 6 x 60 = 360 = 360 degrees for the full circle of the sun at the SL, then the Sunday/Sabbath crisis goes to the world and there are “7” Last Plagues. The “double 10’s” for the world applies between the SL > COP. The great military & economic buildups before the battles of Panium & Actium is another prophetic connection.

- Jeff reviews the “Pattern of Christ” study to show how the events of Christ’s life form a pattern for the papal anti-Christ and the OT & NT in Rev. 11. In v. 13 at the “great earthquake” = French Revolution, as the leader of the 10 nations of the old Pagan Roman Empire, France was “the tenth part of the city [that] fell”. The parallel is drawn to the USA which is also “the tenth part of the city [that] fell” as the leader of the 10-part U.N. The “Cross” in the Pattern parallels 1793 the beginning of the Reign of Terror.

- The beginning of the French Revolution was at an insurrection at Grenoble in 1788 + 10 yrs. = 1798, but historians mark 1789 + 10 yrs. = 1799 (pope dies in captivity).

- The year 1793 (when Louis XVI was executed at the same place and date as the first Protestant martyr 258 yrs. earlier in 1535, GC 230) marks the fall of the leading kingdom of the “10”, and the rise of the atheistic KS as “a new manifestation of Satanic power” (GC 268), which is parallel to the fall of the USA as the leading kingdom of the “10” (at the MC, Panium, Russia “executed”), and the rise of the atheistic U.N. as the “new KS” as “a new manifestation of Satanic power”, and a new “258” persecution begins.

- Jeff suggests the 6 warring factions in the French Revolution parallel 6 warring factions in the future USA “revolution”.

- The revolutionaries made a new calendar that only lasted “7” years before they returned to the Gregorian calendar.

- In the “Binding Off” from MD > MC we see “10” years, that can be further divided into “3” & “7” years. At the end of the “7 + 10 – 10 + 7” chiasm the line between the final “10 + 7” marks the “3-fold union”.

- 1789? = MD, 1793 = MC, 1799? [1798] = SL.

- Between the battles of “Raphia & Panium” Dan. 11:14 begins a line re. Pagan Rome (typical of Modern Global Rome) exalting itself and then falling that ends at the COP in v.36 (parallel to v.45), then v.37 begins a new line.

- The “Image of the Beast, visual test” began (for the “Priests”) when Trump was elected President, because he is beholden to the Evangelicals who endorsed him. Therefore the “Protestants”, through Trump, have already taken control of all 3 branches (Congress, President, Supreme Court) of the US government.

Waynesborough, VA. Feb. 3-5

Part 7, Q & A, 2 hrs. 20 mins.

- Dan. 11:14, between “Raphia & Panium” the papacy enters the picture to exalt itself. V.31, pagan nations (the U.N./USA) will give its “arms” to the papacy to exalt it to the throne of the world, “pollute the sanctuary of strength” (the US Constitution at the SL), take away “the daily” (of Protestantism), set up the “abomination that maketh desolate” (Rome), and make the USA an “offering” to the papacy, slain at the SL. The U.N. then gives its kingdom to the Beast for “one hour” (Rev. 17), which is the 8th kingdom made up from the Beast, Dragon & False Prophet.

- V.32-36 are another prophetic “line”. V.37-39 are a new prophetic “line” of Rome’s self-exaltation and should be applied where v.14 is, between Raphia & Panium. The papacy “honors” the new “god of forces” which would be Trump & the USA building up to war against Russia, and “most strong holds” = U.N. completing the final 3-fold union.

- v.36, the “indignation”:

- Dan. 8:21, Alexander “the Great” (and all “the Greats”) introduce a “New World Order”, symbolic of Trump. V.23, “in the latter time of their kingdom” is the last iteration of Alexander’s world-wide kingdom in Modern Global Rome the “king of fierce countenance” when their “cup of iniquity” is full. V.24, Rome never has its own army. V.25, “policy” = politics  and “craft” = alliances with the nations between “Raphia & Panium”, proclaiming “peace” but preparing to “destroy many”, “stand up against the Prince of princes” = persecution from the MC onward, esp. at the SL (Mar. 199, many martyrs).

- Dan. 9:26, Christ & Rome A, 70 AD = SL & COP, v.27, Christ & Rome B, “desolate” = “desolator” = KN.

- Review of the “Pattern of Christ” study: “Darkness” + birth + 30 yrs. + 3.5 yrs. (Cross) + 3.5 yrs. + Fall of Babylon + 2nd Coming; also the Papacy & the Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:7, French Revolution; “beast” = atheism = KS, v.8 “where also our Lord was crucified” = Cross Waymark in the “Pattern of Christ”). 

- French Revolution chiasm sequence: Papal persecution from 1535-1793, “two witnesses” slain & begin “Reign of Terror” (a type of the SL); “a kingdom is removed” and the atheistic KS (new “Dragon power”) begins, all at the “Cross-center” Waymark.

- Since “the end shows the beginning”, therefore at the “Panium-Cross-center” at the “End” (parallel to 1793); the KS (Russia) is removed, and the “new Dragon power” (the U.N.) comes up as the kingdom of the USA is going down, “parallel kingdoms” (as the Sunday Law is instituted, and as 6th kingdom of Bible prophecy as it joins the U.N. as the 7th kingdom of Bible prophecy), then the “10 kings” (Rev. 17) give their kingdom to the Beast (Modern Global Rome, the 8th), and papal persecution begins again.

- Dan. 11:10, the Lord has “held His hand over” this verse, letting us think the KS was dead in 1989, until now “His hand is removed”, more light is coming out on what we thought we already knew from the beginning (thereby showing us that the “7th Seal” is being removed), and we realized that Russia is still the KS.

- KN invades the KS; Isa. 7:8, nations are identified by their “head”/king. Isa. 8:8, Assyria “overflowed” (Dan. 11:10 & 11:40) and reached “to the neck” but didn’t get the capital/king/”head”.

- Therefore we must be very near the end of the final sequence of revealing light parallel to the “7th Seal” in the Millerite “Midnight Cry” time. SS Snow’s MC message gradually developed from Miller’s studies, but when it was finally presented at the Exeter, NH campmeeting (where the noisy “Watertown” fanatics also had a group), the fanatics fell silent. The “Watertown fanatics” are more a symbol and lesson for this “Present Truth” reform movement than for the SDA GC, even though the SDA GC has fanatics too.

- Considering the “4 Generations”, the SDA GC is in its 4th generation since 1957, ready to bow down to the sun; while this Present Truth movement is now in its 3rd generation, of the false “latter rain”. When the “foolish Priests” are ready to also “bow down to the sun” they will join with the SDA GC and “do a wonderful work in the cities”, and also join to persecute the “wise”.

- 1st generational test is the “old paths”, to either accept them or get “jealousy” about them, then the 2nd generational test is “putting man’s word above God’s Word” which is “spiritualism”, then the 3rd generational test is “weeping for Tammuz” which is the false latter rain, and then the 4th generational test is “bowing down to the sun”, which the SDA GC has been doing since 1957, sending medals to the Pope, participating in the World Council of Churches, etc. all along.

- For this “Present Truth” movement the 1st generational test was on the book of Joel, whether to follow Miller’s Rules of interpretation for symbolism or to take the terms literally, and “jealousy” was a major factor in the separation of the brethren then, and then the 2nd generational test showed itself in the disaffected ones thereafter “putting their word above God’s Word” in wrong interpretations. And then the 3rd generational test is the “false latter rain” “strong delusion” as is happening now, just before MD (but there is a true Latter Rain coming from above too).

- Q&A time.

- The USA is the antitypical pagan “daily” in Daniel (or KN) now because the pagan “daily” and the USA both put the Pope (the bigger KN) on the throne of the world. However, the current “Omega movement” has turned that “upside down” (Isa. 29:16) claiming that the USA is the KS rather than the KN. The “Alpha” apostasy claimed that the “daily” in Daniel is Christ’s heavenly sanctuary ministry in opposition to the SDA pioneer teaching (as it appears on the 1843 & 1850 Charts) is that paganism was the “daily”, thereby turning the truth “upside down”. The fact that the truth is being turned “upside down” again shows that we are in the Omega apostasy now.

- Question re. in the middle of all these prophetic dates and events we handle, what is the believer’s relation to Christ in this reform message?

- Ans. Dan. 10:1, “the time appointed was long” = the chazown vision, and Daniel “had understanding” of  the “vision” = “mareh” vision of Christ. One has to “see Christ” in the “mareh” and be justified by faith in order to understand the “chazown” and continue to be sanctified by knowledge. But the Omega movement claims that FULL justification of the believer (purification of even unknown sin) does not happen until after MD (when the “door closes” for the “Priests”), so it becomes a deadly “peace and safety” deception message.

- Part of the Omega movement’s assertion in Wales was that the “work” of organizing and ordaining ministers for this movement was satanic, which is parallel to the “no-work” fanaticism EGW saw in Kellogg’s “Living Temple” book in the Alpha apostasy. 

- Question re. James White’s authorship of an article in 1863 (January 26, 1864 page 68 "The Seven Times of Leviticus XXVI") that rejected the 2520 year prophecy.

- Ans. When an editor of the R&H wrote an article it always shows the author's initials at the end of the article, but this article has no initials, so it was probably actually written by Uriah Smith who opposed the 2520. Many years later James White wrote an article that said EVERYTHING Wm. Miller taught was accurate, and Miller did teach the 2520. Further question re. GC 351, when read correctly implicitly shows EGW was speaking of the 2520 rather than the 2300.

 

Part 6

- Panium = Caesarea Philippi, in the territory of Dan (Judging) at the MC. There is also a rock-quarry (symbol of temple-building), and the headwaters of the Jordan River (the fountains of Pan, a counterfeit of the River of Life), and the temple of Pan (a counterfeit temple). 

- The MC at the war of Panium marks the center of the “candlestick” pattern, and is the dividing line between the true gifts of the Spirit and false gifts: true healings vs panacea, Godly “panorama” of Scripture vs Satanic “panorama” of knowledge, “primitive godliness” vs pantheism, Lord’s goat of sacrifice in the Sanctuary vs scapegoat led away alive outside the camp, Miller’s casket (10x brighter) vs Pandora’s box (no hope), Tree of Life vs tree of knowledge of good and evil, River of Life vs fountains of Pan, MHP vs Pantheon temple.

- The Alpha apostasy was by someone close to the heart of the work (as Lucifer was in heaven, JH Kellogg was raised & educated by the Whites), so we should expect the same in the Omega apostasy. In every reform movement Satan has introduced a counterfeit (GC 186).

- At the MD betrayal of “Christ” (true Priests), the “false Priests” (as Judas) have the “false light & power”, and the “Jews” (as the SDA GC) have the “false love, joy & peace” and the US Gov’t is as Rome; but the “true Priests” have all 5 attributes.

- The “Omega movement” claims the sanctification issue (who is a “wheat” or a “tare”) is AFTER MD (when the “door closes” for the “Priests”) and ignores the time BEFORE MD, when the “7th Seal” of light is being opened. In the Alpha apostasy EGW said to “Meet it!” before the “door closed”, but the Omega movement” wants to wait until AFTER MD when the two movements will be separated, and of course the counterfeit claims to be the true.

 

 

Part 5, Panium

- Review of the chiasm of the Presidents and how they connect to our prophetic Reformline at the MC/Panium Waymark. When the “10 Presidents” are laid over the “10 kings” of Rev. 17 the Articles of Confederation lines up with the MC, marking the “3-fold evil confederation”, and the Constitution lines up with the SL Waymark, marking the end of the Constitution and the end of the USA as the 6th kingdom of Bible prophecy. There is also a “7” marked before MC.

- Review of the beginning (French Revolution) and ending of the KS chiasm that also connects at the MC/end of Russia and rise of the “dragon power” = U.N., and the beginning of persecution again until the USL/CoP. The point of the French Revolution is to show what will happen to the USA when its cup of iniquity is full, because France rejected the possibility of being the “Glorious Land” in 1535 at its first Protestant martyr.

- Connections to the meaning of “Pan” in Panium; externally; Greek, meaning “all” or “every”, as in “everything” without restraint, meaning “anarchy”; the pagan god of the wild, unrestrained, loose, free. With other suffixes is rendered “panic”, “pandemonium”, “pandemic”, “panorama” all at the MC.

- Panium later became Caesarea-Phillipi, where Christ was acknowledged as the Messiah by Peter, and immediately thereafter is opposed by Satan through Peter. Internally; Pan-dora’s box, “dora” means “gifted, giving”, so “all” the “gifts”, both evil and good, will be fully restored and working at the MC. Her “box” is also termed a “casket”, parallel to Wm. Miller’s dream of the “casket” of jewels that shown 10x brighter when it was restored.

- In EW 56 the wicked, or “Omega movement” of “false Priests”, at the MC receive the gifts of “light & power” but no “sweet love, joy & peace”, and they will join with the SDA “Pharisees” who also have “light & power”, who will also join with the SDA “Sadducees” who emphasize the false “love, joy & peace” in order to get the US gov’t to “crucify Christ” in the “true Priests” who have all 5 characteristics representing the “5 wise virgins”.

- 1 Ki. 19:15-18, Elijah as the 1st Angel anoints leaders under the 2nd Angel: Elisha, Jehu (as a Pharisee/Judas), and Hazael (as a Sadducee/SDA GC).

- A great SDA physician led out in the Alpha apostasy (Kellogg) and fell into pantheism, and another great SDA physician will lead out in the Omega and “do a wonderful work in the cities” (1SM 203, Ben Carson), probably because there will be lots of cleaning up and aid work to do after Islam strikes.

- After the Cross Jesus opened the minds of the disciples to understand His Word, and after 1844 Jesus opened the mind of EGW to understand His Word, and after MD the “wise Priests” will have their minds opened up to understand His Word like never before, a “panorama” of Scripture. 

- Satan will also give a “panorama” of “light & power” to his “tools”, and they will be led by the “scapegoat”-god, “Pan” the goat-god of nature and the wilderness, and pan-theism, represented by the “Pantheon” Temple in Rome (and also by the occult goat-god Baphomet of the Knight’s Templars). 

- All of this pan-theism is also represented by “the daily” in Dan. 8:11 (which Adventism cast away the truth of the pagan-“daily” 100 years ago). The pagan-“daily” put the papacy on the throne of the earth in 538 AD, and the pagan-“daily” (as the USA, the “Glorious Land”) will put the papacy (as Modern Global Rome) on the throne of the earth at the Universal Sunday Law.

- However, as there was an argument over “the daily” as a Godly or Satanic power in the Alpha apostasy, and an argument over the “Glorious Land” as either the USA (Satanic) or Adventism (Godly) in the 1990’s, so now in the Omega apostasy the argument is over the USA/Glorious Land as the KS or as the KN (basically the same argument), and those who do not have “the love of the truth” will be given a “strong delusion”.

 

 

Part 4

- Dan. 11:23, the league. Referring to the African brethren’s study paper: at MD, SDA “Jews” (in Russia) appeal to the US Gov’t “Rome” because of oppression by the Russian “Syrians”. SDA “Jews” typify Judas, the Jewish priests and Romans in a 3-fold union parallel today’s “false Priests” of this movement, the SDA GC, and the US Gov’t. When the SDA GC appeals to the US Gov’t against the “true Priests” it is the “Image of the Beast” test for the “true Priests”, then for the “true Levites”, and then for the “true 11th hr. workers”.  

- Paper reviews v.11-13, battles of Raphia & Panium/Actium. Initial defeat of the USA by Russia will create panic and the beginning of a search for a “scapegoat”, which will be the “true Priests”, then the “true Levites” in Adventism, then Sabbath keepers around the world.

- In order for the “foolish Priests” to fall away as “Judas”, who “closed the door” of his probation just BEFORE MD, and become the “Omega apostasy”, they have to first receive a “false latter rain”/”strong delusion”/”closed door” message in the pattern of Eze. 8 which is 4 steps (beginning at 9/11). The “3rd step” is the “weeping for Tammuz” which is the “false latter rain”/”strong delusion”/”closed door” message BEFORE MD (before the 4th step at the MC). The “Omega movement” claims the “false latter rain”/”strong delusion”/”closed door” message comes AFTER MD (and is therefore a “peace & safety” message).

- First & Last in the 7 Seals: the 1st Seal is a pattern for the 7th Seal. In the beginning of this movement in 1989 the argument was the USA as the “Glorious Land”, and suddenly now the newest argument is the USA as the King of the North, so it is basically the same argument re. the USA. Therefore we are certainly in the time of the 7th Seal now. (Brief review of the “Sign of Jonah” to the wicked/lost.)

- 11:23, the “3-fold union” is called “a small people”, parallel to the few “elites of power & wealth” who started the French Revolution at MD, and the Reign of Terror at the MC, which is to happen again worldwide (ED 228), parallel to the “consolidation of power & wealth” between Raphia & Panium which is to happen worldwide also, see Gen. 41, Joseph in Egypt, “consolidating” in the “7 yrs. of plenty” between MD & MC.

- 11:21 & 24, “entering peaceably” = Tiberius/Trump, who “shall scatter” the wealth via treaties, at first, but then after the defeat at “Raphia” at MD (and the rise of an Islamic Caliphate that makes the kings fear), and the economic boom & retaliation at “Panium” at the MC, (then Islam strikes in the USA at the MC, brief review, some Westerner will give Islam what they need to strike); social & political conditions will lead to civil war, Martial Law, repudiation of the Constitution (5T 451) and despotism, Trump becomes a dictator, then the SL.

- v.25-27, “both these kings’ hearts, mischief, lies” = Putin & Trump. After the battle of “Raphia” at MD, a “triumvirate” is formed by treaty (with a third party who shortly dies, and with Russia as Marc Antony, and with the USA as Caesar), until the battle of “Panium/Actium” at the MC where the Russia/Antony part of the “triumvirate” is betrayed by his own people, then the USA/Caesar/Trump becomes a dictatorship and enacts the first SL.

- v.28, two “returns”; one from Egypt in 31 BC (Russia/Antony) with “great riches”, and one after going “against the holy covenant” at Jerusalem in 70 AD, a type of the SL.

- v.29-30, “at the time appointed” = SL, KN attacks the KS (again?) but is not victorious as he was at the “former” time in 31 BC (Russia/Antony), or as the “latter” time in 70 AD (SL), because of the “ships of Chittim” (Islam attacks the 3rd time). “Intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant” = Justinian’s decree in 533 AD setting the Pope in charge, and the U.N.’s future “decree” in setting the Pope in charge.

- v.31, the U.N.’s “arms” support the Pope, and the “sanctuary of strength” = US Constitution is polluted, and the USA (as the 6th kingdom of apostate Protestantism) is “taken away” and replaced by the U.N. (7th kingdom), as a sacrifice to “the abomination that maketh desolate” (8th kingdom, which is of the 7) for “one hour”.

- v.30, “Chittim” = Cyprus = Carthage = Islam “sinks” the “ships of Tarshish” = USA financial system at 9/11. 1st Trumpet = 1989 > 9/11 (alliance of USA & Rome). 2nd Trumpet = 9/11 > MD (Islam’s “east wind” “sinks” the economic ships of the USA [for “40” years]). 3rd Trumpet = MD > MC (Attila [prepared to attack for “40” years] and came from the area of Russia). 4th Trumpet = MC > SL (Odoacer became the ruler of Rome, and the 3-part gov’t [US Constitution] ended).

 

 

Part 3

- Dan. 11:13, after some kind of defeat at “Raphia” (MD), Trump & the USA as the KN stimulate the economy with a big military buildup in preparation for “Panium” (MC), the “great army and with much riches”.

- v. 14, “in those times” the Papacy steps in to exalt itself (parallel to 10:20 where Persia goes down and Grecia comes up, which is parallel to the USA going down and the U.N. coming up as the 6th & 7th Kingdoms of Bible prophecy in Rev. 17). Russia (as the KS) is destroyed at “Panium” (MC) but the USA also is removed as it joins the U.N. (as the Dragon power).

- “The end [of the KS] shows the beginning [of the KS]”, so another parallel (in a chiasm) is at the French Revolution where the previous French gov’t (as a papal power that persecuted Protestantism), was removed (in 1793, after 258 years of papal persecution to the same month and day); and the KS (as modern atheistic Communism, “a new manifestation of Satanic power” and the “Dragon power”) began. The persecuting atheistic Communist power moved to Russia in 1917 and formed the USSR. In 1989 the atheistic Communist part (that opposed Rome) was destroyed, but Russia (the head of the KS) lived on and will be destroyed at “Panium” at the MC, but then the U.N. (under papal control) will take over “as a new manifestation of Satanic-Dragon power” and restart the persecution of “true Protestants” (Sabbathkeepers) again.

- v. 15-16, the “old” KN (Syria/USA) takes out the KS (Egypt/Russia), then a “new” KN (Pagan Rome/U.N./Modern Global Rome) takes out the “old” KN (Syria/USA) and rules the world.

- v.17-19 show how Pagan Rome under Julius Caesar came to rule the ancient world. Like Alexander the Great, both established a “new world order”.  However, both Julius Caesar (as a symbol of Rome) & Marc Antony went down to Egypt (which God forbids, Jer. 44:12), and later died violent deaths “came to his end with none to help” (Dan. 11:45).

- v.18-19, “a prince (“Tsar” = military leader) for his (Rome’s) own behalf (the USA & 10 kings), shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease”. Isa. 4:1, it is a “reproach” to not have the name of Rome, but the “reproach” will be taken away when the 10 kings turn on Rome (Rev. 17:16).

- v.20, “raiser of taxes”, Augustus = Obama.

- v.21 & 24, “vile”, “not give the honor of the kingdom”, “comes in peaceably” = Tiberius/Trump.

- v.22, “Prince of the Covenant” = Christ “broken” at the Cross = SL during Tiberius/Trump’s reign.

- In Dan. 11:2 “yet” = TOE, the place to start the count of the 4 Persian kings (parallel to 1989). The count of the 4 Persian kings begins at “yet” and you count forward to the “far richer” Xerxes (parallel to Trump), but in v.22 you have to start at the Cross & Tiberius Caesar and count backward 4 Roman rulers.

- v.16-21 contain two parallel prophetic lines; the acts of the Caesars from Pompey to Tiberius, and v.16-19, the rise and fall of Pagan Rome, which is parallel to the final rise & fall of Global Modern Rome, the final King of the North.

- v.23, “after” the league with the Jews (161 BC), Rome worked “deceitfully” (158 BC). The parallel today is that the SDA GC will form some “league” with both the “foolish Priests” and the US Gov’t at MD, and then under the spiritualism of the 3-fold union the SDA GC will accept Sunday worship at the MC/Panium/Actium (based on the study paper by some African brethren).

- v.24, Trump will get what he wants by “The Art of the Deal”, “deceitfully”, “even for a time” = 360 at the SL. In Dan. 3 the “Image” of the Sunday Law test was 6x60 = 360, which then becomes a symbol of the division of the Roman Empire at 330 AD into East & West, when the USA gets divided (v.4). 

 

 

Part 2

- Review of part 1, then the “double battles” of Raphia & Panium (v.11-13) appear at the MD & MC Waymarks rather than at the 9/11 Waymark.

- v.14, Miller saw in “ALSO” a completely new player in the history of the kings of the North & South, Pagan Rome coming up to “establish the vision”. The parallel is that sometime between the battles of antitypical “Raphia & Panium” (MD & MC) Papal Rome comes out of the shadows and enters the picture.

- v.15, the KN (Antiochus III Magnus of Syria in 200 BC, as a symbol of the USA) defeats the KS (Egypt as a symbol of Russia and “his chosen people”).

- v.16, “BUT” (Fast-Forward to 63 BC), “he” = Pagan Rome’s Pompey (as a symbol of Papal Rome in the near future) “that cometh against him” (against Syria as a symbol of the USA as the “old” KN), “shall do according to (Pompey’s/Papal Rome’s) own will” and “shall stand in the glorious land (Israel in 63 BC, as the USA in the near future) which by his (Pompey’s/Papal Rome’s) hand shall be consumed” (at the Sunday law, Dan. 11:41).

- v.17, the new KN (Papal Rome, with its proxy the USA/apostate Protestantism) conquers “Egypt” as a symbol of the rest of the world, and becomes Modern Global Rome at the Universal Sunday Law, Dan. 11:42.

- 11:11 (doubling at the MD-MC time, all chapter & verse doublings in Daniel apply to v.45). Raphia, 217 BC, the KN (USA) makes a great army against the KS (Russia) but is defeated and quickly makes a truce/peace treaty.

- v.12, Ptolemy IV (KS = Russia) gets proud & goes to “Jerusalem” where he tries to enter the temple but is refused, so in a rage goes back to his own country and slaughters Jews. 2 Chron. 26:16, Uzziah gets proud (like Belshazzar also), then there is always some kind of temple desecration. “81” = MD “Priests” withstand him.  Ps. 74:4, “ensigns” in the temple are the “sign” that Jesus referred to in Mt. 24, not necessarily from the KN only.

- The Jews kept asking Jesus for a sign because they didn’t know what the “sign” was, but we need to know what our “sign” is before it comes so that we can recognize it and act immediately.

- Our “sign” is whatever Russia does to religious liberty after initially defeating the USA in some way at “Raphia”. So the "sign" for people in this message isn't even in the USA.

 

 

2-3-17, part 1

- All of the 45th chapters in the Bible & Conflict of the Ages series have to do with the final events under the 45th US President.

- Dan. 10:1-3, “fasting” 21 days from 9/11 > MD, the need to understand the mareh & chazon visions before the “door shut” at MD, then Daniel’s “3 touches”. V.18-19, double “be strong” (Heb. “to bind” x5) = MD > MC time, 5 wise “Priests” being “bound off”.

- V.20, “Persia” = two-horned power = France = USA (6th kingdom of Rev. 17), then “Grecia” = U.N. = 7th kingdom at the MC, then 3-part Rome (Beast, Dragon, False Prophet) are the 8th.

- Dan. 11:1, “1st yr. of Darius” & Dan. 10:1, “3rd yr. of Cyrus” are both the end of different 70-yr. prophecies (TOE), which in PK 559 is linked with the 1260 yrs. of papal persecution ending in 1798, another TOE. Every TOE points to the LAST TOE beginning in 1989, then Dan. 11:2.

- 11:2, “yet” from 1989, the 4th “far richer” king (Xerxes) in Persia = USA = 45th President = Trump. 2 Presidents in 1989 (Reagan & Bush I), then count 3 (Clinton, Bush II, Obama), then Trump. Republicans were always in office when prophetic stuff happened.

- The 1st President under the US Constitution was G. Washington, but there were 17 before him (7 + 10). The first 7 were unofficial, but the 7th unofficial was also the 1st under the Articles of Confederation (so he was “the 8th and of the 7” (Rev. 17:11). There were 10 more until G. Washington who was “far richer than they all” through Real Estate, like Trump (parallel to Xerxes, who overcame 9 other kings to be the 10th).

- The chiasm is that after the 45th and last President under the US Constitution (Trump), then as the USA goes down as the 6th kingdom of Bible prophecy, there arises the “10 kings which have received no kingdom as yet” = the U.N. as the 7th kingdom of Bible prophecy (“parallel kingdoms” parallel to Grecia arising in Dan. 11:2-4) at the MC, then comes the 3-fold union (“confederacy of evil” [Isa. 8:12], parallel to the U.S. Articles of “Confederation”) of Modern Global Rome at the SL, which “is the 8th and is of the 7”.

- There also will be war, because Russia as the King of the South is not “dead” as we thought for decades (the Lord held His hand over a detail in the prophecy, as He did in 1843), but now we see that “Vladimir Vladimirovich” means “Ruler of the World, the Son of the Ruler of the World” (the “son” of Vladimir Lenin) &  “Donald” also means “Ruler of the World” (as the King of the North under Rome), so there has to be a clash for ultimate rulership.

- Dan. 11:5, a general of Ptolemy in Egypt, Seleucus, conquers E, W, & N by 281 BC, a 3-fold conquering (parallel to 538 AD), and then he becomes the King of the North.

- Dan. 11:6, “end of years” = 1260 = “time of the end” in 1798 = Dan. 11:40, then the battles of “Raphia & Panium” at MD > MC just before the SL in Dan. 11:41. At the antitypical “Battle of Raphia” the KS/Russia hits the KN/USA (as the proxy of Rome the higher KN), in a “battle” that changes the course of world-history, parallel to the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 by Islam using cannons made by an unemployed European cannon-founder (parallel to Edward Snowden who invented the computer language all PC’s in the world use, who is unemployed in Russia). Eventually, at the antitypical “Battle of Panium” the USA retaliates and destroys Russia.

- Dan. 11:10, 11:40 & Isa. 8:8 are the same, tied together by the Hebrew “overflow and pass over”. The KN defeats the KS but the capital is not taken.

- v. 7 & 10, “enter into the fortress” and “up…to his fortress” is a key point in understanding the parallel for today. In v. 7 the KofS (Ptolemy III) who will “enter into” and capture the unresisting KofN (246 BC), who later dies in captivity parallels Napoleon Bonaparte who will “enter into” and capture the unresisting KofN (1798), who later dies in captivity. The peace treaty with Berenice (252 BC) parallels Napoleon’s peace treaty at Tolentino (1797), and both treaties failed and resulted in war. In the war after Berenice the idols were restored to their temple in Egypt (246 BC), and the parallel in the war of Napoleon is that after 1798 the temple of God began to be restored in the Millerite movement, also typified by the 220 years from  677 > 457 (220 = restoration).

- The fact that “God is removing his hand” and showing new light on these verses shows the progressive opening of our 7th Seal, parallel to the Millerite 7th Seal, the final Seal just before probation closes.

- The 7th Seal is gradually removed to admit light: SS Snow learned from a letter by Miller in Dec. 1843 some info that helped him develop the sermon he gave on 7-21-44 (Boston Tabernacle at MD) and on 8-15-44 that started the Midnight Cry.

- There were 6 Syrian Wars and we have light at this time on the middle 4 (from 281BC/538AD to 200BC/Panium/MC), and know that the first & last will be the same.

- Before 1989 there was a “proxy-war” between Russia & the USA in Afghanistan with Islam as a tool of the USA, then in the 1989 time the USA became the proxy of Rome, and now Russia & the USA (as the proxy for the KofN), are in another “proxy-war” in Syria, again with Islam as the proxy, (but of both sides now because of warring Islamic factions).

2-2-17, Seven & Ten

- Jeff reviews the “Omega movement” claim that whoever uses 539 BC as the fall of Babylon is “vomiting on the tables/charts” (Isa. 28:8) that have 538 BC for the fall of Babylon. But if we use SS Snow’s method of using the Karaite calendar (that he used to find Oct. 22, 1844) instead of the Rabbinical calendar then 538 & 539 BC overlap on the Gregorian calendar, so it’s a non-issue.

- Jeff reviews the latest light, as the “7th Seal” is being opened up right now, which is the chiastic structure of the French persecution of the Protestants in 1535, the fall of France in the Revolution as a type of the fall of Panium in the past, which is parallel to the fall of Russia in the future, and the rise of the U.N., and the persecution of true Protestants again in the future.

- Comparisons are made between the early years of the French Revolution & the American Revolution that show “7” & “10”, which should repeat with some significance in the future “revolution” when the anti-typical “Battle of Panium” happens (at the MC) and Russia is defeated or destroyed, and the U.N. takes over the world. The beginning of the US Constitution in 1789 parallels its end at the “Battle of Raphia” at MD, when the USA (as the KN) is defeated in some way by Russia (as the KS).

- Just as the 7th US “pre-president” was the “8th and of the seven”, so at the end of the chiasm, at the SL,  we see the “8th kingdom (the 3-fold union of Modern Global Rome) is of the seven” kingdoms before it. In the chiasm the SL (healing of the deadly wound) has to be opposite of 1798 (the infliction of the deadly wound).

- As the “eldest son of the papacy” who “thinks to change times & laws”, France introduced the Metric System which is based on “10” and changed the 7-day week to a 10-day week (and changed the 60-second minute to a 100-second minute, and the 60-minute hour to a 100-minute hour, and the 12-hour day to a 10 hour day). “7” is God’s symbol of completeness and “10” is man’s symbol of completeness.

- France rejected Protestantism (and accepted the “Christian” Communism of Rome) which led to a moral downhill slide until it made a “constitution” based on humanism, which soon led to the rise of the atheist-Communist dragon power and the Revolution & Reign of Terror. The USA accepted Protestantism and made a Constitution based on Lamb-likeness, but still eventually repudiates its Constitution and true Protestantism, and falls to the dragon power (the “Christian” Communism of Rome).

- Thinking of a parallel to Joseph in Egypt: 9/11 > MC parallels the “7 years of plenty”, parallel to the French Declaration of the Rights of Man in 1789 + “7 years of plenty” to 1793 and the rejection of the Bible & Revolution (at the MC) + “7 years of famine” to 1798 when the Pope was removed and the Bible was reinstated, parallel to the SL where the Bible is removed and the Pope reinstated.

- Jeff reads 1SM 205 (new organization) and applies it to the Waymarks of the Present Truth movement.

- GC 186, in every reform movement Satan brings in a fanatical counterfeit with false teachers, which today is the “Omega movement”.

 

 

2-1-17, The 7 Seals cont.

- The “Omega movement” in the UK asserts that only one “generation” can exist at a time, while Jeff plans to show that different “generations” can exist at the same time, ie. Laodicea for ancient Israel existed at the same time as “Ephesus” for the Christian Church. Jeff compares them to Korah, Dathan & Abiram who said, “All the congregation are holy”, when they were not. The “Omega movement” claims that everyone in the “Present Truth” movement is the “wicked and evil generation” until MD when they are not.

- The question “How long?” comes right after the captivity of “Thyatira” for both the OT church (Zech. 1:12 = 70 years) and the NT church (Rev. 6:10 = 1260 years). Leading up to the captivity of “Thyatira” in the OT was the time of Moses as “Ephesus”, the Judges as “Smyrna” and the compromising Kings as “Pergamos”. For the NT it was the self-willed confusion of misguided “martyrs” during the Roman persecution of the Christian church as “Smyrna”, then the compromising king Constantine as “Pergamos”.

- The “Time of the End” at the beginning of OT Israel was the birth of both Aaron & Moses (we used to teach one birth marking the TOE, but now see two births marking that Waymark), and at the end of OT Israel the two births that marked the TOE were John the Baptist & Jesus. The “formalization of the message” for OT Israel was the Burning Bush, and for NT Israel it was the message of John the Baptist. The “foundation” for OT Israel was the Sabbath, and for NT Israel it was the first 5 disciples. The next Waymark for OT Israel was the Law given on Sinai on Passover, and for NT Israel it was the Cross on Passover, both followed by a “disappointment”.

- In the Millerite time they saw the last 3 of the 7 Churches all existing together, Sardis, Philadelphia & Laodicea. Today we see “Priests”, “Levites” & “11th hr. Workers” all existing together.

- The “separation of classes” that happened at Moses’ time at the beginning of OT Israel (OT Ephesus) happened again at the end of OT Israel at Christ’s time (OT Laodicea), which was also the beginning of NT Israel (NT Ephesus). The same “separation of classes” was seen in the Millerite time (SDA Ephesus) and is happening again now (at SDA Laodicea).

- Another key point in these “separation of classes” times is the bypassing of the “old covenant” people (divorce) and the acceptance of the “new covenant” people (remarriage). (Seems that God has a hard time picking faithful wives since He has had to divorce 3 of them for infidelity already [OT Israel, NT Israel = Protestantism & apostate SDA GC Adventism at 9/11]).

- 1 Pet. 2:1-10, the bypassing of the “disobedient” who “stumble over the foundation” and the selection of the “Priests”.

- Question is posed: When is the “Foundation” established (Ans. near the beginning), and what is it? (Ans. It is what everything else is built on top of). In the Millerite time Wm. Miller silently “cut out the stones” and then began public speaking in 1831, and then they were laid as a “foundation” in the 1843 Chart, as a “second witness” to those truths.

- Isa. 28:15 (covenant) & v.16, (foundation). Some are entering into a “covenant of death” while at the same time others are entering into a “covenant of life”. Thinking of the process of “divorce & marriage”, the class discusses when the “name change” happens in the process and the marriage becomes “official”. Dan. 9:27, Jesus’ death “confirmed the covenant” (of life) for one group, and “confirmed the covenant” (of death) for another group at the same time.

- (switching gears), Dan. 11:5-10, v.10 is the primary verse of this section (that sheds light on some chiastic structures), but is the “external” view:

- v.10, the “Great” of “his sons” only came “up even to his fortress”, but did not “take” it (Battle of Raphia, 217 BC), symbolizing the breakup of the atheistic Communist USSR in 1989 “up even to his fortress”, but not the “taking” of Russia as the KS. (The “Dragon’s” tool was dead but not the “Dragon” himself.)

- The beginning of atheistic Communism as the KS was in the French Revolution (the atheistic Jacobins). After Ancient Pagan Rome was divided to “10 kings”, there were 258 years between the rejection of Protestantism and the first Protestant martyr on 1-21-1535 and the execution of Louis XVI on 1-21-1793 on the same exact spot and day by the atheistic Jacobins (has to be a Waymark), symbolizing that his (Papal Catholic) kingdom (the “old manifestation of Satanic power” as the KN) is removed, and the Dragon as a “new manifestation of Satanic power” (GC 268) is appearing as the KS (atheistic Communism).

- Now that the beginning verses of Dan. 11 are being opened up under the 7th Seal, we see a correlation between these ancient battles and the present today. The Battle of Panium, 200-198 BC (at the MC) typifies the removal of a kingdom (atheistic Communism in 1989, and later Russia itself) as the KS, and the Dragon as a “new manifestation of Satanic power” is appearing as the KN again (Papal Catholic control returns at the U.N.).

- The end of the atheistic KS in the fall of Russia at “Panium” (and the rise of the U.N. at the MC) parallels the beginning of the atheistic KS in the French Revolution, therefore the papal persecution symbolized by the “258 years” before the French Revolution will begin again (at the MC) after the rise of the papal-controlled U.N. (in a chiastic structure).

- The parallel chiastic structure is the Presidents of the USA: first there are 7 (until the Articles of Confederation mark the 7th which is also “the 8th and is of the seven”, Rev. 17:11), then “10 kings” up to Geo. Washington who was the first under the US Constitution. The other side of the chiasm is that Trump (the 45th) will be the last under the US Constitution, followed by the U.N./NWO which is the “10 kings who have no kingdom as yet” (Rev. 17:12), which will be followed by “the 8th and is of the seven” which is Modern Global Rome, parallel to Ancient Pagan Rome, all “external” events. 

 

1-31-17, Jeff, Seven Seals

- PK 714, the 1260 years = Thyatira = the 70 years captivity in Babylon. Rev. 6, the history of the Christian Church parallels the history of the Hebrew Church. (Note the 5th Seal is v. 9-11.) Inquiry, “How long?” 20MR 197, v. 9-11 are future to John’s time (approx.. 100 AD). The Churches, Seals & Trumpets are broken into 4 + 3, and the Millerites knew they were the last 3 Churches, which happen together rather than in sequence.

- 7BC 968.5, after the 5th Seal “How long?” then Rev. 18:1-5, the call out of Babylon, so the 5th Seal reaches up to our time, including the SL.

- Zech. 1:7-11, after the “horses” the “earth is at rest”. Isa. 14:4-7, Babylon destroyed = “earth is at rest” at 1798. Zech. 1:12-17, indignation against Jerusalem 70 yrs. = 1260, then 1798 & “How long?” which is the SL and the second group of martyrs, but this is about “choosing Jerusalem” again. Isa. 6:11-13, “How long?” is from 9/11 to the SL desolation beginning at the MC, but then the “10th” returns (to their “old paths”) and are “eaten” as “firstfruits”, or become “teaching-food”, or “teaching Priests” for the “11th hr. workers”.

- Ps. 74:1-10, “How long will the enemy reproach?”, v.4 = Rome. v.5 those that once built v.6 they now “break down” the [SDA} structure. v.7 the “fire” of false prophecy. v.9 no prophet = EGW. v.10 = SL.

- Ps. 79:5-10, the “day of the Lord” at the SL begins the “revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed”.

- Dan. 8:13, “How long” the sanctuary & host trodden down? Until MD (at the “firstfruits” & “Church Triumphant”, then SL when the “day of the Lord” really gets going.

- Jeff closes by reemphasizing the 7 Churches in the time of ancient Israel, connecting at the 70 Babylon = 1260 papal Rome = Thyatira Waymark, and overlapping ancient Israel’s “Laodicea” with “Ephesus” of the Christian Church, the end of the “old” covenant people with the beginning of the “new” covenant people, the similarity of the “first & last” = Passover at both ends, “parallel kingdoms”, joining of the “two sticks”, etc.

 

 

1-30-17, Jeff, Little Horn & 7th Seal

- Someone is attacking Marco Barrios in South America for upholding that Rome comes out of one of the feminine “4 winds” of Dan. 8:8 rather than the masculine “horn” of Macedonia. It is further evidence that two parties are being developed within the “Present Truth” movement. Readings from U.Smith’s D&R emphasizing the rising role of Rome rather than the declining Greek Macedonian empire. Italy is shaped like a “boot” and Rome “stamps and breaks” Dan. 7:7.

- Removing the Foundations: Jeff used to say the “4th generation” of Adventism began in 1989, but recent clearer light has revealed a time of “darkness” between the 3rd & 4th generations (1919 > 1957)  before the Present Truth Reformline begins at 1989. So Jeff is being accused of “moving the foundations”. However, the idea of a period of “darkness” before a reformation is not new but began with the 3 + 1 combination teaching back in 1989.

- http://prophecyhelps101.com/rich_text_47.html

- 7th Seal, 1 Pet. 2:3-10, the foundation-stone itself separates two classes of worshipers. The “chosen generation & royal priesthood” began at 9/11.

- The study of the 7 Seals at the end of the history of ancient Israel and the beginning of the Christian church overlap at “Laodicea” for Israel and “Ephesus” for the Christians. Ancient Israel’s final generation is that of “vipers”, which is the “sign of Jonah” to them, which also shows the “everlasting gospel” at work, and the Christians are the first generation of the “chosen”. At the end of the Christian Church there is another “everlasting gospel” separation between the Laodicean “foolish virgins” and the Ephesian “wise virgins” (not denying that the “Philadelphians” are also the “wise”).

- http://prophecyhelps101.com/rich_text_2.html

- The “Foundation” laid after 9/11 is made of the “living stones” of those who are building on the “Foundation” and preparing to be the “royal priesthood & chosen generation”. There is also the “wicked and adulterous generation” who are “stumbling” over the “Foundation” message rather than building upon it. They will be fully manifested, and separated at MD.

- The “Omega apostasy” movement claims the “Foundation” message and “royal priesthood” of 1 Pet. 2 begin at MD rather than 9/11, and that all the “disciples of 9/11” before MD are the wicked. Tania notes that Caleb & Joshua were “sealed” at the beginning (9/11) and remained so throughout the 38/40 yrs. wilderness wandering to the entering of Canaan at MD, while the rest of Israel were the “wicked & adulterous generation” that whole time. The “Omega movement” claims that events parallel to the Angel of Rev. 18 coming down with “glory” happen at MD rather than at 9/11, and tend to ignore the history from 9/11 > MD.

- Question: Are we ALL the “wicked & adulterous generation” from 9/11 until we get to MD? (Ans. No.)

- S.N. Haskell’s book “The Seer of Patmos” presents that the character & experience of all of the 7 Churches appear in the time of Laodicea. Jeff’s point is that the character & experience of all of the 7 Churches appear in the time of ancient Israel too.

- HL 280, the beginning and end of Ancient Israel, the beginning of the Christian Church, and the end of Adventism all have the same characteristics.  

- 3SM 339, All the great events and solemn transactions of Old Testament history have been, and are,  repeating themselves in the church in these last days.

 

 

1-29-17, Tamina, The Most Holy Place

- Eze. 1:1 heavens opened on 5d4m (MD), Rev. 4:1 door opened, Rev. 11:19 heavens opened on Oct. 22, 1844 marking the Close of Probation. Therefore Eze. 1:1 is marking the COP at MD for the “Priests”. Also when Christ died the veil in the Temple was torn, opening the Most Holy Place to view.

- At the Jan. 2014 FFA/SOTP Campmeeting a brother received a dream about the Sanctuary that showed angels standing in the Sanctuary, one at 9/11 and the other at the SL, both of them looking towards the MC in the center. Building on that light, much more light has opened up.

- The “Midnight Cry” & “Midnight” are “both a point in time and a period of time” so we include “MD” on the Reformline before the Midnight Cry which moves the center from the MC to a point between MD & MC.

- In Solomon’s Temple there were 4 angels, two on the ends of the Ark and two standing behind the Ark with their wings stretched out to the walls (“walls” = “laws”) of the Most Holy Place. Their wings were “10” cubits wide. Tamina draws their wings on the board from 9/11 > MD, a “10” for one angel (based on Daniel’s 10-day test on “eating” [the little book] and David’s 10 men who visited Nabal); and from the MC > SL , a “10” for the other angel (Daniel & friends were “10” times better at the MC, and Nabal’s heart turns to stone “10” days before he dies at the SL, typical of the “death” of the USA).

- The Ark is in the center between MD & MC, and it has a “crown” symbol of the “Church Triumphant”, and an angel on each end. The “Law of Moses” was “on the side of the Ark and the Law of God was inside the Ark, 4 laws on one side and 6 laws on the other, making “46” (46 years from 1798 > 1844 & Jn. 2:20). Also 4 + 6 = “10” in the “binding off”. Aaron’s Rod that came alive and bore fruit shows God’s chosen leadership in the “Priests” of the Church Triumphant who are “chosen” from 9/11 > MD. Manna = the message. Law = union of divinity with humanity. Moses’ law at the side of the Ark marks Samuel as the restoration of the Priesthood, Prophet and Judge. The Shekina Glory is above the angels to show God’s unlimited position.

- GC 639, EGW saw the 10 Commandments folded as a book and opened up indicating a hinge or “turning point” in the center. CET 60, the vision of the New Earth, emphasizing the Tree of Life. The trunks of the Tree of Life meet at the top where the throne of God is, and where the River begins, so the trunks are at MD & MC but it is just one tree. The “River” is the Jordan where Israel crossed over to conquer Jericho at the SL. From 9/11 > MD the “Priests” as the Church Militant “eat” the “little book” of God’s Word of the fruit from the left trunk of the Tree of Life, and at “Jordan” become the “Priests” of the Church Triumphant and “eat” of the right trunk, along with the “Levites” and “11th hr. workers”. 

- Zech. 4:1-3, God’s people “wake up” at MD, and see “two olive trees” with the “candlestick” in the center, with a “bowl” receiving oil from the trees to feed the 7 lamps of the candlestick. V.14, the “two anointed ones” = OT & NT (Rev. 11:4, or Law & the Prophets, or Bible & SOP), pour “oil” into the “lamps” of the “Priests”/5 wise virgins, which is (among other symbols) their “character”, which is not transferable (COL 411). At the larger scale the Candlestick gives light at every Waymark or “turning point” (BEcho 8-26-95), and in Rev. 1:13 Jesus is in the midst of them as High Priest. EW 14, keep the light shining from the beginning of our path to the City, don’t forget the Old Waymarks (8T 296) or we will stumble and fall off the path.

- Gen. 15:15-18, Abraham’s 1st Covenant with God, that also shows the last (4th generation). Animals are “divided in the midst” and when it is “dark” (MD) God shows Himself as a “burning lamp” in between MD & MC.  1 Pet. 2:5 (Rom. 12:1), we as “Priests” and “living stones” of the spiritual Temple offer up “spiritual sacrifices” at the “peak” (Tamina’s word) or center between MD & MC.

- Tania comments on Gen. 17; Abraham let Sarah control their marriage (Church controlling the State) which caused Ishmael to come on the scene.

- William Pitt observes Gen. 15:9-11 (9/11) are about the “sacrifice in preparation” from 9/11 to Christ’s appearance at MD.

- Tania further comments on Gen. 14, where Abram meets Melchizedek as the Holy Spirit before meeting the Lord in Ch. 15.

- Larry reads 5T 307, the bullock is ready to work at the plow or be offered as a sacrifice for the cause of Truth.

- Tania further comments on Lev. 16:14-15 that the blood on the Day of Atonement was sprinkled twice, denoting “doubling” at MD & MC, and the “7 times” = 2x 2520.

- Tamina points out that we progress through the Reformline from the Courtyard at 1989, the Altar of Burnt Offering at 9/11, the Holy Place at MD, and Most Holy before the MC. The Altar of Incense before the veil is a small “fractal” of the Mercy Seat since it too has a “crown” and is carried by, staves and is on the centerline of the Sanctuary. 

 

 

 

1-26-17, Jeff, Dan. 11:23-29, part 2

- Our Reformline always has a “wilderness”, and there is some Waymark within the “wilderness” time. Using the 10 plagues of Egypt, the 10th plague is when there is a “cry at midnight” on Passover, so they are placed at the MC Waymark. Counting back to the 3rd plague we see a break between the Egyptians and the Hebrews which is another Waymark.

- (switching gears) The 4 middle Syrian Wars are #2 at 281 BC (parallel to 538 AD), #3 at 246 BC (parallel to 1798), #4 at 271 BC at Raphia (parallel to MD & League with the Jews at 161 BC), #5 at 200/198 BC (Panium, parallel to the MC), and #6 possibly parallel to the “time” of 360 yrs. from 31 BC > 330 AD.

- Rome came on the stage after defeating Macedon and ordered Antiochus IV Epiphanies out of Egypt about 168 BC, 7 years before the League, but not sure yet at which Syrian War to mark those events yet.

- Both 161 & 158 BC are probably good dates for the Jewish League with Rome, and then being conquered by Rome.

- Africa paper at p.5; Dan. 11:21 & 24, Rome (as Trump) works “deceitfully” and “peaceably” using treaties (“deals”) and promises to share the “riches”. P.6 class had no light on the 360-yr. “time”.

- p.7, v. 25-26 (the military buildup between the kings of North & South before the Battle of Actium) are a “repeat and enlarge” parallel of v. 11-13 ( the military buildup before the Battle of Panium) at the MC.

- Suggested parallel is that Trump is building up the US military now but will REALLY build it up after the initial defeat by Russia at MD, which causes an economic boom, then the defeat of Russia (KS) at the MC, and the rise of the U.N. (the “dragon” power moves from Russia to the U.N.), before Islam begins bringing it all down. Then in the USA (parallel to Constantine dividing Rome in 330 AD, and then further to his 3 sons [3-fold union]) comes division, disintegration, civil war, Martial Law, US Constitution repudiated and the SL.

- p.8, v. 27, as Tiberius Caesar (KN) & Antony (KS) faked friendship while planning to take over the world, so the parallel is that Trump (KN) and Putin (KS) also fake friendship while planning to take over the world, and apparently Russia (KS) strikes first and is initially victorious at “Raphia” at MD. Then a truce while the USA (KN) builds up and attacks at “Panium/Actium” and defeats Russia at the MC.

- There has to be some kind of lesson re. the KN (Julius Caesar) and the KS (Antony). Both die after going to or in Egypt, both get involved with Cleopatra of Egypt (atheistic woman-church, name means “glory of the fathers”), both were part of a 3-fold union that resulted in one becoming a dictator, and both deaths are marked, both slain or betrayed by so-called friends, so they have to be parallel.

- v. 28, two “returns” are described; after defeating Russia (KS) at Actium/Panium (MC), Octavius = 8th/Tiberius/Trump Caesar (KN) returns with such riches that he destabilizes the economy of Rome/USA. Cleopatra (atheistic woman-church) dies, marking the end of the “Church of Communism” aspect of the KS (then the “dragon” spirit moves to the U.N.).

- p. 9, v. 30, the second “return” is the USA’s “indignation against the Holy Covenant” at the SL, parallel to 70 AD, and also parallel to Justinian’s decree in 533 AD (to “make [Rome] great again”), which brings division, disintegration, civil war, etc. (national apostasy ends in national ruin).

 

1-25-17, Jeff, Dan. 11:23-29

- Class reviews a thought-paper by some African brethren that draws types from Daniel & U.Smith’s D&R, and anti-types in our present time. (Note: “Raphia” & “Panium” are reversed in the document.)

- Dan. 11:23, the league between Rome and the Jews in 161 BC. Paper asserts the SDA GC makes a league with the US Gov’t at MD, the “abomination of desolation”, before the “siege” at the MC. In the type the Jews were oppressed by Syria in the East and appealed to Rome in the West for help. Paper draws a type from the “long drawn out war” between Rome in the West and Medo-Persia in the East that allowed Islam to rise; parallel to the “long drawn out [Cold war, or 10-year Afghan] war” between the USA in the West & the USSR in the East that allowed Islam to rise again. Therefore “Syria” is a type of Russia.

- v. 12, Paper suggests after being victorious over the USA at the anti-typical “Battle of Raphia” at MD, that Russia persecutes SDAs in Russia, who then appeal to the US Gov’t for aid (Jeff is real iffy on that idea) but it would be a union of the SDA GC & US Gov’t, an “Image of the Beast”, which is a “sign” for the “Priests”.

- v.13 (“13” is symbolic of rebellion, Gen. 14:4), externally, the USA builds up for an anti-typical counterattack parallel to the “Battle of Panium” at the MC.  The “build up” parallels Joseph gathering corn in the “7 years of plenty”.

- Internally, because the “true Priests’” “prediction” that Russia would defeat the USA at “Raphia” they become viewed as treasonous to the USA. The SDA GC (Jews), and the “false Priests” who reject that Russia is the KofS (become “Judas”) both join with the US Gov’t = 3-fold enemy, to persecute the “true Priests” (Christ) at MD. The Rabbis were planning to kill Jesus long before they actually did, therefore the “true Priests” are likely already marked for persecution by both the SDA GC & the US Gov’t.

- Another external line from MD > MC is the consolidation of wealth in the global elites which leads to a repeat of the populism of the French Revolution at MD, and the “Reign of Terror” anarchy at the MC in the USA.

- v.21 & 23-24, parallel to Augustus Caesar, Trump “comes in peaceably” with “flatteries”, and promises “prey, spoil, riches” to people, groups & nations that support him (through the “Art of the Deal”). “Nor his father’s father’s” indicates 3rd generation (weeping for Tammuz).

- Yet another external line is the activities of Islam which “troubles the kings” at MD but doesn’t strike yet.

- v.25, Augustus Caesar as the KofN (Rome) and Marc Antony as the KofS (Egypt), built up great armies and battled at Actium in 31 AD, parallel to the battle of Panium in 200 BC (v.13), parallel again to the USA as the KofN and Russia as the KofS when the KofS loses at the MC, and Augustus becomes dictator of Rome and Rome rules the then-known world for 300 years (the “Pax Romana”).

- Conclusion so far: The Latter Rain will intensify before MD to “ripen” the “foolish Priests” in their 3rd generation of “weeping for Tammuz”, and also seal the “wise Priests”.  The “foolish Priests” will reject the idea of Russia as the KofS, which is a “fragment” of the upcoming “prediction” re. war between the USA & Russia as symbolized by the battles of Raphia & Panium at MD & the MC.

1-24-17, Canada, Panium & the Omega Apostasy #7

- 9/11 > MC & Eze. 8, #1 abomination is “jealousy” re. the leadership of the movement (as Lucifer was jealous of Christ in heaven), which leads to #2 (spiritualism) putting own words above God’s words, then #3 a false “latter rain” message just before MD.

- Parminder’s study on Mt. 13 (dealing with identifying the “tares” connects with Mt. 18:17, naming sin in a brother) that drew such criticism in Wales, is based on the assumption that there is an organized “church” to take your final complaint to. But this “Present Truth” movement has no such “church” or even a definite name. Critics allege that organizing the worldwide work of FFA/SOTP is the “new organization” EGW spoke of in 1SM 204.

- Therefore, for the “Omega” to hijack the message and create “a new organization” there has to be an “old organization” for them to copy…. which would be FFA/SOTP. Therefore again, logically, the critics of FFA/SOTP have to be the “new organization”.

- Dan. 10, 3-steps (touches) brings us to “21” = MD. “Daniel”, as a “Priest”, is humbled by his “mareh-marah” experience of seeing Christ, then strengthened 3x and cleansed from all sin & sealed; but the other “tares” flee, and are separated, before the 3rd touch, before MD, when we enter as “Priests” into the MHP. To put the separation of “wheat & tares” after MD is a false sanctification and “peace and safety” message.

- The “Foundation” is always at the 9/11 Waymark (as a “type”), but “the effect of every vision” is at the “binding off” from MD >MC, where the “Foundation” is set again for the “Levites” (antitype).

- The new movement claims that for us to say 9/11 > MD is important is to be unduly focused on the types (as the Jews were) instead of seeing the antitype (Christ) after MD, but it’s a false premise because the Jews didn’t study or understand their types anyway, and the true Present Truth movement does understand their types.

- The 1843 Chart was the “foundation” of the Millerite time and sits at the 9/11 Waymark, therefore to claim that the 1843 & 1850 Charts don’t apply until after MD is to move the foundation or pillars of our faith (1SM204).

- The Alpha, charted from 1888 (denial of the “foundations”, pantheism, “the daily” [being taken away]), through 1909 (GC denial of the SOP in the Bible & EGW, at “MD”) to 1919 (Bible Conference that denied prophetic guidance for the “Doctrine of Christ” = “the abomination of desolation” set up).

- 1SM 205, “do a wonderful work in the cities” applies both to Adventism AND to the “false Priests” within the Present Truth movement. From 1919 the health work was hijacked by J.H. Kellogg, and the EGW writings were taken from the White family by the SDA GC, and in 1957 the “capstone” of apostasy was made in the book, “Questions on Doctrine” with apostate Protestant theology in it. Then was the time of “darkness” before the reform message was born in 1989.

- After the “birth” of the reform message in 1989 (first seeing the prophetic timelines with the 3 Angels’ messages marked in them), it took more shape after 9/11 (when we realized our time was parallel to the Millerite time), and in 2015 some organization came when some men were ordained to conduct ceremonies. Therefore the “new organization” had to be formed after the “old” organization was established, in 2015. Therefore these new accusers in 2016 logically have to be the “new organization” themselves.

- The new light on the Battles of Raphia & Panium (Caesaria Philippi) give more clarity to the “external” of Dan. 11:40-45, and the connection with “Pan” and pantheism gives more clarity on the 7th Seal and the “internal” Omega apostasy in the same way SS Snow gave clarity to the 2300 year prophecy that led to the Millerite Midnight Cry.

- Closing exhortation: many in this message are not upholding the basic rules of Christian conduct in our daily lives, and the time to be ready for the close of our probation is getting shorter. The message and the work needs to be placed above our own personal emotional needs.

1-24-17, Sinful Condition

- Jeff diagrams justification and sanctification as applied to the “disciples of 9/11” on the board, with the view of Jones & Waggoner in 1888, and apostate Protestantism, and addresses the question of the sinlessness of believers at MD. There was quite an argument over the issue among various speakers and ministries in the 1990’s, and apparently the issue has resurrected itself among FFA/SOTP speakers now.

- (My favorite quote on this issue: “But while they have a deep sense of their unworthiness, they have no concealed wrongs to reveal. Their sins have gone beforehand to judgment and have been blotted out, and they cannot bring them to remembrance.” {GC 620.1} … but it is needful for them to be placed in the furnace of fire; their earthliness must be consumed, that the image of Christ may be perfectly reflected. The season of distress and anguish before us will require a faith that can endure weariness, delay, and hunger—a faith that will not faint though severely tried. GC 621.1)

- Evidently some people around the world watching SOTP videos by the other speakers were seeing two lines of thought, which was causing confusion, and it was thought best to remove those videos until all the speakers could get solidly on the same page and not aggravate the shaking that is already going on.

- With the question of the sinlessness of believers at MD; Isaiah seeing the Lord and Daniel’s “3 touches” changes them (the mareh-marah experience), but is it a cleansing of known sin or of their “sinful condition”?

- Tyler explains “MD” as “a period of time” (one of 4 watches of the night), and the 7 Trials of Christ during that “binding off” time. The trials begin with the Jews-Church “internal” at MD then “midway” move to the Romans-State “external”, or Christ could have His 3 tests in Gethsemane at MD and then be arrested at the “midway” point. They may be separate lines. A parallel event was Josiah Litch’s prediction in 1838 is “fine-tuned” 10 days before Aug. 11, 1840, the 10 days marking a “midway” point.

- In Dan. 1 the magicians go first (and there is a “tarrying time” at MD as the “Priests” await their turn to speak), then Daniel & Arioch’s “haste” is at MD- “midway”, and his prediction is at the MC but it is about the future SL. Also Esther’s experience shows some “midway” point between MD & MC.

- Jeff points out that if the Battle of Raphia is at MD & the Battle of Panium at the MC, and since Greece (as the U.N.) has to be involved, that there must be a “midway” point where the KofN (USA) is bringing in “his chosen ones” (Greece/U.N.) to prepare for the second battle.

- Tania correctly suggests that the crux of the problem is the question, “Who has the real connection with God?” Apostate Protestants & Catholics (magicians) will claim that they do in opposition to the tiny (captive Daniel) sect of Sabbathkeepers.

- Jeff introduces the “6 Syrian wars”, of which Raphia & Panium are the 4th & 5th” . First and last are yet unknown, but #2 = Dan. 11:6, #3 = V. 6-9, #4 = Raphia/MD v.11-12, #5 = Panium/MC v. 13-15, #6 ?

- There are also 4 Macedonian wars, and the time when Rome drew a circle around Antiochus Epiphanes which signaled the end of the Seleucid empire also. The years between the wars & events in years are “49”, “7”, “3” all prophetic numbers.

- Homework is needed for all who are observing the classes.

 

1-23-17, The Alpha Apostasy

- 1SM 205, re. a new movement and a counterfeit organization, and reading of other EGW quotes re. the “no work doctrine” as part of the “Alpha of heresies” in her day, and it is “Judas” who introduces it, especially subtle because of allegedly being founded on Bible prophecy.

- The opposing movement alleges that there should be “no work” done before MD, with emphasis on the “effect of every vision” during the “antitypical” MD > MC time, to the exclusion of studying the previous times when the original types were established; but Jeff holds to the “work” of “organizing the work” from 9/11 > MD (when our “foundation” was laid) as an important duty/”work” right now before MD, with emphasis on knowing that the present “work” is based on or patterned after the “types” of the past.

- Class proposes types of ”works” before “MD” in the past include: organizing before taking Jericho (at the SL); cutting the stones and laying the foundation/cornerstone for Solomon’s Temple before assembly. Our “Present Truth cornerstone” (the 1843 & 1850 Charts together) was “laid” at 9/11 and that is when the “work” of assembling the “temple” of the “Priests” began, which will be complete at MD. Litch’s work was “foundational” to SS Snow’s prediction. Jethro gave organizational principles to Moses. Jesus chose the 12 disciples and organized the 70 for mission work before “MD”, etc.

- Organizational framework is needed to give God a vehicle to steer His church; as in dealing with Ananias & Sapphira for example. There HAS to be some kind of organization before a “church” can be in place to be able to use the final step of the formula in Mt. 18 (rebuke a sin yourself, then with a witness, then with the “church” as a whole). There has to be some kind of organized “church” before the “church” can discipline a member of that group. The angels in heaven are organized.

- Examples of wrong organization; 1863 in Adventism (organizing was ok, but doing so under the guidance of the State was wrong), Saul as king (but God tried to work with him anyway), rebuilding Jericho. Opposition accuses Pippenger of being a “kingly power” like Saul, but arguing against organization because the leader may be corrupt is an invalid argument against the need for organizing.

 

 

1-22-17, Dan. 11

- Jeff reviews Miller’s premise that “the daily” in Daniel was paganism, which he had to understand correctly in order to form half of his “2 abominations” motif, the “daily” abomination = paganism, and the “abomination of desolation” = Papal Rome.

- The “daily” question arose in the 1870’s, but the change from the “daily” as a Satanic power to a Godly power didn’t become “official” until around 1910 during the Alpha apostasy. It was the “turning of things upside-down” (Isa. 29:16).

- The same type of argument arose in 1996, at the beginning of the Omega apostasy, over whether the “glorious land” was the USA as a Satanic power, or the SDA GC as a Godly power. It was another “turning of things upside-down” (Isa. 29:16).

- 1798 marked the beginning of the “judgment-hour message” (based on Dan. 8:14), and then the “7 Seals” were removed, the last one being when “God’s hand was removed” (EW 235) just before the MC in 1844 (also based on Dan. 8:14), which marked the “perfection” of the “judgment-hour message”.

- The parallel in 1989 was that 1989 marked the beginning of the “judgment-hour message” (based on Dan. 11:40-45), and then the “7 Seals” were removed, the last one being when “God’s hand was removed” just before MD (also based on Dan. 11:40-45) , which marks the “perfection” of the “judgment-hour message”.

- Today at the end of the Omega apostasy, when “God’s hand is being removed” again, and the 7th Seal is being opened, the same type of argument that arose in 1996 has arisen, over whether the “glorious land”/USA is the KofN, or the USA is the KofS. It is another “turning of things upside-down” (Isa. 29:16).

- (That the King of the South did not entirely die out of the contest for control of the planet in 1989 is the first major revision of Jeff's prophetic schema that he's ever had to make. The Communist opposition to Catholicism is apparently gone, but as the continuing King of the South Russia continues to oppose the power of the USA as the continuing proxy-army for the Catholic King of the North. The military contests of the historical kings of the north and south in the early verses of Dan. 11 continue to shine increasing new light on the present continuing contest for control of the planet. Since the 7th Seal is being opened, and “God’s hand is being removed” again, history is now being seen to repeat in much greater detail than before. The battles of Raphia & Panium have become significant.)

- An longstanding unresolved question in the history of Rome conquering “3 obstacles” before ruling supremely is that there appears to be 2 conquerings of Egypt as the third obstacle, once in Dan. 11:17-19 (44 BC), and then again in v. 25-27 (31 BC). It is also interesting that both Julius Caesar and Marc Antony formed 3-part alliances before a member of the alliance became a dictator/emperor. Now it is being seen that they are two “line-upon-line” histories that overlay one over the other. Also in 538 AD there were the Visigoths & Ostrogoths.

- It seems logical that God has “held His hand over” a piece of information in our history parallel to God having “held His hand over” a piece of information in the Millerite history.

- Dan. 11:4-6, Ptolemy’s general Seleucus (Nicator) conquers E, W, & N, and becomes the KofN in v.5, then the “end of years” (35 years) is parallel to the 3.5 “years” (1260 years) of papal power ending in 1798 AD.

- v. 7 & 10, “enter into the fortress” and “up…to his fortress” is a key point in understanding the parallel for today. In v. 7 the KofS (Ptolemy III) who will “enter into” and capture the unresisting KofN (246 BC), who later dies in captivity parallels Napoleon Bonaparte who will “enter into” and capture the unresisting KofN (1798), who later dies in captivity. The peace treaty with Berenice parallels Napoleon’s peace treaty at Tolentino, and both treaties failed and resulted in war. In the war after Berenice the idols were restored to their temple in Egypt, and the parallel in the war of Napoleon is that after 1798 the temple of God began to be restored in the Millerite movement, also typified by the 220 years from  677 > 457 (220 = restoration).

- V. 10 the “two sons” of the KofN (Seleucus II & Antiochus III Magnus = “the Great”) retaliate at the Battle of Raphia in 217 BC and “overflow and pass through”, parallel to 11:40, but only come “up…to” the fortress of Egypt but not take it, parallel to 1989 when the USA helped Rome “overflow and pass over” the territories of the USSR, but did not take Russia. v. 9-11 is the new light the Lord “held His hand over” until now.

- 11:11, all the double-verses in Daniel connect together; 1:1, 2:2, 3:3, 4:4, 5:5, 6:6, 7:7, 8:8, 9:9, 10:10, 11:11, 12:12. (Interesting brief discussion of the Pope’s use of “Solidarity” as a code-word for revolution, starting with the French Revolution, other revolutions, the Jacobins, anarchists, pointed hats [Peter Pan’s Phrygian Liberty cap,]. Phrygians = anarchists = revolutionaries = Democrat party in the USA.)

- Battle of Raphia, KofN (as the USA in 1989, and under Trump) sets forth a great army, but in 1989 does not take Russia, and soon the armies of Trump are defeated by the underdog KofS (Russia).  

- v.12, KofS (Ptolemy IV) parallel to Russia, wins against Antiochus Magnus’ much larger army (parallel to the USA & Trump), but then the KofS gets prideful and tries to unite Church & State by doing sacrifice in Jerusalem (an “abomination of desolation” by the KofS), which is blocked, then he takes revenge on the Jews in Alexandria (back in his homeland) branding (Mark of the Beast) and killing thousands. 

- v.13 & 15, Battle of Panium, the KofN (as the USA under Trump) makes a revenge attack (against Russia) and wins.

- v. 14, “many” = U.N. is led by Trump against Russia; and notes the “robbers/breakers” (Papal Rome) appears “in those times” of the warfare between the kings of N&S to “exalt themselves” to lead the U.N. in “peacekeeping” operations (but “Surprise!” will only send the U.N. troops after Sabbathkeepers, and then “fall” when the U.N. sees they’ve been duped and turns on the Pope).

- v.15, 9-11-15 Russia allies with Iran to fight in Syria, so Iran = Islam = “his chosen people”(??? questionable).

- v.16, “But he (the papacy) that cometh against him” = USA (as the “old” KofN, in 11:41 at the SL), “shall stand in” (conquer) the “glorious land” = USA at the Sunday law.

 

 

 

1-18-17, Wheat & Tares

- Jeff reviews the “4 Generations of Adventism”, adding a period of “darkness” from 1957 (the publication of Questions on Doctrine, which was going back to Old Protestant theology) to 1989, and parallels it with the time of the book of Malachi when there were no open visions for 400 years.

- “Satan appeared to be by the throne, trying to carry on the work of God. I saw them look up to the throne, and pray, “Father, give us Thy Spirit.” Satan would then breathe upon them an unholy influence; in it there was light and much power, but no sweet love, joy, and peace. Satan’s object was to keep them deceived and to draw back and deceive God’s children.” {EW 56.1}

- Apostate Protestantism gave up “light & power” in the 1840’s, so focuses on “sweet love, joy & peace”.

- SDA GC Adventism gave up “sweet love, joy & peace” so focuses on “light & power”.

- The apostate branch of the “Present Truth movement” focuses on “sweet love, joy & peace”, so will join with the SDA GC to round out their message, and together will “go into the cities, and do a wonderful work.” 1SM 204

- The true “Present Truth movement” has both “light & power” and “sweet love, joy & peace”.

- The false “Present Truth movement” claims that the “prophetic lines” (which are “figures” = symbols) reveal the “personality and presence of God”, but to speculate on the “personality and presence of God” (is to invite destruction) 1SM 201.3. And “the unapproachable God, cannot be represented in figures.” {18MR 222.2}

- “Switching gears”, Parminder Biant presented a study on the “wheat & tares” in both Germany & Wales and in both cases some people surprisingly rose up against it claiming that no one can know who the “wheat” or “tares” are before the harvest at “midnight”, and the false Present Truth ministry have taken up this cause. They focus on MD and afterward, thereby skipping over possibly important information having to do with the “wheat & tares” just before MD. Jeff observes that the strength and vehemence of the opposition suggests that Satan may be trying to hide important info that we need to know about the “wheat & tares” just before MD.

- Mt. 13:24-30, the false movement claims the servants who could tell the difference between wheat & tares were “evil servants” for “judging” the tares and becoming “accusers of the brethren” before the harvest at MD. The distinction may seem trivial to us now, but the vigorous opposition indicates there is something hidden in this parable the devil does not want us to see before MD. (Therefore we should study the parable intently, praying for light.)

- Those who see the “tares” are not “evil servants” or “accusers of the brethren”. COL 310, “But not all who profess to be Christians are true disciples. Before the final reward is given, it must be decided who are fitted to share the inheritance of the righteous.” Those that “sigh & cry for the abominations” done in the church are loyal servants (RH 9-23-73.5). “When the servants of the householder, in their zeal for his honor” recognize the tares… {MH 493.2}.

- The false ministry claims that prophetic interpretations cannot be separated from the context of their moral lessons. Therefore, the servants who see the tares are evil servants who accuse their brethren (the moral lesson) and you should not make a prophetic interpretation that puts them in a positive light (having zeal for the master’s honor).

- First there is the “blade” (wheat & tares both look like green grass), then the “ear” (wheat & tares still look similar, like grass with a flower-stalk growing up), then the “full corn” (wheat & tares look very different). Recognizing the presence of green “tares” with flowers on them among the ripened white bowed heads of “wheat” is a “sign” that it is about time for the “harvest at MD” to begin… and students of prophecy must recognize that “sign” when it appears just before the “harvest” and take warning. To oppose looking for the warning sign is to give a “peace & safety” message.

- In the “binding off” the tares are “bound” first: Judas went out and was “bound” by a demon, just before Jesus was “bound” by the crowd at MD in the same night.

- At 9/11 the Angel came down with “the little book”, as the “seed of the Word” to plant in the hearts of His people who had the “love of the truth”. Then with the “sprinkling” of the Latter Rain the growth process has progressed through the “blade” and the “ear”, and now we are evidently at the time of the “full corn in the ear” just before the harvest at MD, because this conflict over “wheat & tares” has just now sprung up, and is trying to cover up or distract us from observing the difference between the “wheat & tares” just before the harvest at MD.

- A rebuke to those who can’t tell the difference: “… their minds are mixed with contradictory sentiments, and they have not perception to distinguish the wheat from the tares.” {21MR 298.3}

- “One sinner may diffuse darkness that will exclude the light of God from the entire congregation. When the people realize that darkness is settling upon them, and they do not know the cause, they should seek God earnestly, in great humility and self-abasement, until the wrongs which grieve His Spirit are searched out and put away.” {3T 265.1}

- Those who put the “warning sign” too far off into the future give a “peace & safety” message. 2 Thess. 2:3, “…that day shall not come except there come a falling away first”, and the “falling away warning sign” just before MD is here now, but the false “Present Truth movement” is denying that they themselves are the “falling away warning sign”.

- “The apostle’s admonition to the Thessalonians contains an important lesson for those who live in the last days. … Those who persist in this error will at last fix upon a date too far in the future for the coming of Christ [which at one level is at MD for the “Priests”]. Thus they will be led to rest in a false security, and many will not be undeceived until it is too late” GC 456-457.

 

1-17-17, Battle of Panium & the Omega of Apostasy

- Jeff reviews some Providential leadings of God in the past, and suggests that the present growing crisis in Future For America/School of the Prophets, because of a breakaway ministry in the UK & Africa, occurring when there are new students present is also Providential.

 - “45” & “46”,  Panium later became Caesaria Philippi, where Peter demonstrated two classes of people, commented on in Desire of Ages, Ch. 45, “The Foreshadowing of the Cross”. PK Ch. 45, “Return of the Exiles” discusses the final apostasy, then Ch. 46, “The Prophets of God Helping Them” discusses the reestablishment of the Temple. Also AA Ch. 45 is about the 45th President of the USA, and Ch. 46 is about the Temple again. Gen. 45 (Joseph leads Egypt as a type of Trump leading the world), and Gen. 46 (Abraham’s Covenant & Joining of the 2 sticks). Chapters 45 & 46 of Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah & Ezekiel also contribute info on this subject.

- The anti-typical battles of “Raphia” & “Panium” should be at least as significant as the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan to end WWII and the fall of the USSR to end the Cold War.

- MD, MC & SL are all dividing lines at important events that can be put together as one dividing line. Before the dividing line the False appears, and afterward the True.

- Thinking about the Battle of Panium at the MC, in the “external” sense; the meaning of “Pan” = a Greek scary goat woodland-god, and “pan” also means “all”, as in  “panic”, “pandemic” (all-people), “pandemonium” (all-demons). “Externally” thinking of “Pandora’s box”; Pandora let all the demons out into the world (pandemonium), which caused a “panorama” of all the world’s evil, and only got the lid back on in time to catch “hope” inside, so there is no hope in the external world, at the COP.

- “Internally”, thinking of “Pan-dora’s Box”; Pandora = the 1st woman (as Eve) all-gifted or all-giving, understood as “all the spiritual gifts” will be restored after the MD, MC, SL dividing lines. The Greek “box” means an urn large enough to bury a body in, or “casket”, so it is a counterfeit parallel to Miller’s restored “casket” with jewels 10x brighter. The internal “panorama” is a full understanding of the Bible and the Present Truth.

- Before the dividing line the False appears, and afterward the True. Azazel created sin, but the Lord’s goat (Christ) was the sin-offering. There is the Pantheon (all gods) and pantheism (everything is god), Kellogg’s “Living Temple” that misunderstood the “Temple”, which was the Alpha of apostasy (that gives us clues about the Omega that also misunderstands the “Temple”); and the true Temple with primitive Godliness. The 1st Seal opened up Dan. 11:40-45 and the Alpha of apostasy in 1989; and the 7th Seal opens up Dan. 11 again at the Omega.

- Both “8” & “11” appear just before MD, and Dan. 8:11 is the crux of the present “Temple”-Sanctuary misunderstanding. Adventism is still unclear on what “the daily” is (either the truth of paganism = a Satanic power [2 Thess. 2:7-10], or a false heavenly sanctuary = a godly power); what “take away” means (8:11 = “RUM” = lift up and exalt, display; or in 11:36 & 12:11 = “SUR” = remove from sight); and what the “sanctuary” is in 8:11 (the truth on the 1850 Chart says “paganism” or the Pantheon temple, but current wrong SDA = heavenly sanctuary that was adopted during the Alpha apostasy). All 3 of these errors are a “removing of the foundations” (2SM 389).

- Miller had to see “the daily” as paganism being removed to allow the papal “abomination or transgression of desolation” to arise, before he could understand the “two persecuting powers” motif, one external to the Church and one internal within the Church, which is a “foundation” truth.

- These truths began to be taken away (the Alpha) after the death of James White in 1881 and was complete by 1919. Part of the argument at the beginning of Adventism (1st Seal) in Miller’s day was, was the “Glorious Land” the USA? = a Satanic power (typified by the pagan “daily” who put the Pope on the throne of the old world)? Or was it the Christian Church = a godly power? This same argument was repeated at the beginning of the Present Truth movement (7th Seal) in the 1990’s; was the “Glorious Land” the USA or Adventism? The same argument is happening in this Present Truth movement right now in the question of whether or not the “Glorious Land”/USA is the KofN, so the argument has come full-circle to the end now.

- Pandora & Eve (women = churches); both wanted forbidden knowledge (from the “tree of the knowledge of good & evil”, thinking it was better than the “Tree of Life”) and opened the box/ate the fruit. (Pandora “closed the door” of the box leaving her with no “hope”, but through Jesus Eve does have the “hope” of returning to the “Tree of Life” someday.)

- In 1776 the US of America came into being, and 220 yrs. (restoration) later in 1996 Future for America came into being.

- In 1552 a Roman cannon founder was “fired” by the Roman Emperor in Constantinople, and went to the Muslims for a job making cannons, which were later used to destroy Constantinople. In 2017 Trump “fired” nuclear scientists (the Director & Deputy Director of the National Nuclear Security Administration by not asking them to stay past Jan. 20 during the transition phase to a new Director)…

- Many today think they are eating from the Tree of Life when they’re really eating forbidden knowledge connected with pantheism. Because of jealousy Lucifer left the presence of God to become the great deceiver, and took a third with him; and evidently one has left the presence of FFA/SOTP to become a great deceiver too, and jealousy has to be a factor in order to be consistent, and it may cause a third of Present Truth believers to lose their way, as some already have. A precedent exists in the experience of J.H. Kellogg who lived with the Whites, but then later turned against them.

- The Latter Rain is falling now, and it is ripening a false and a true “binding off” of the “wheat & tares” message today. The false is emphasizing the “binding off” from MD > MC while disregarding the need of character development before MD, while the true FFA/SOTP movement is emphasizing the need of character development and victory over sin before the MD “binding off” ever arrives.

- In 2 Thess. 2:1-3 Paul dealt with the idea that the day of the Lord was already there, but he said, “No, a falling away has to happen first”, and the same is happening with the MD emphasis that denies more things have to come before MD (esp. a falling away, strong delusion, iceberg, and Omega apostasy), and those who are already come to fruition as “tares” are already numb, anesthetized, to their own condition and can’t see that they are in it.

- Kellogg took the “right arm” part of the message and tried to make it the whole message.

 

 

1-10-17, Internal & External

- In the union of Church & State it is always the State that “speaks” even though the Church is in control. 

- The progression of events that lead to the global, universal Image of the Beast & Sunday Law test repeat in the prior experience of the USA, the SDA Church and at the level of the Individual.

- Therefore, if we see some marked events in the development of the Universal Image of the Beast/Sunday Law in the histories of nations past, we should be able to find some of those same events in the developmental history of the Image at the USA, SDA Church and personal levels.

- The USA is a 2-part power (Republicanism = State & Protestantism = Church), based on the previous 2-part power of Revolutionary France (Egypt = State & Sodom = Church).

- Since the Church becomes apostate Protestantism which is a daughter of Babylon who is the KofN, then atheistic government becomes the KofS and the Dragon. But beyond that the Democrat Party is socialistic and atheistic, so it can be called the KofS while the Republican Party has become a pawn of the Religious Right, and beyond that the Papacy, so it can be called the KofN. The USA was split into North & South at the Civil War in 1863, the end of the 2520. Even Adventism is split into more religious/conservative/KofN “Pharisees” and more secular/liberal/KofS “Sadducees”.

- Alexander the Great was the defining king at the beginning of the Greek Empire, and Julius Caesar was the defining king at the beginning of the Roman Empire, so they are parallel in being world-wide kings, also kings that are called “the Great”. Darius was first but Cyrus was “the Great” made a world-wide decree. Antiochus III is called Magnus or “the Great” though his brother ruled for a short time first.   Reagan was first but Bush I is “the Great” because he was the father of Bush II, also Bush I made a pronouncement of a world-wide NWO.

- The final iteration of the NWO is the U.N. which started after the atomic bombs were dropped on Japan on the 6th & 9th days of August in 1945, emphasis on “45”, and parallel to the “6th & 9th hour” of the Cross, which are parallel to MD & MC, and the battles of Raphia (KofS wins) & Panium (KofN wins), all leading to a world-wide issue afterward.

- Issue of Islam: the “Cold War” ended in 1989 where the USA, as a proxy of the KofN, defeated Russia using Islam as a further proxy. The modern “Battle of Raphia”, in Syria today, as it now is, has Russia, as the KofS, beating the USA as the KofN, also using Islam as a proxy, and will end at MD. Islam is another agent/issue that brings “every man’s hand” together in the U.N.  

- Question is whether the “Battle of Raphia” in Syria today will end at MD as another “cold” war or as a “hot” nuclear war. Both Raphia (ending at MD) and Panium (at the MC) were very bloody battles.

 

 

1-8-17, Jeff, Dan. 11 & the Omega, follow-up on his Lambert Fellowship Sabbath sermon.

- Jeff reviews the 4 steps in apostasy in Eze. 8, ending with the “25” during the MD > MC “binding off” time, and how it overlays our present sequence from 9/11 onward, with some emphasis on the 3rd step of “weeping for Tammuz” which is a false “later rain” message from within this movement.

- It was understood long ago that the “4 generations” of Adventism were characterized by “books of a new order” during the 3rd generation, marked at the beginning and end by the 1919 “Doctrine of Christ” and the 1957 “Questions on Doctrine”, and constitute a time of “darkness” before the light began to shine again in 1989. 

- Having a “false latter rain” message within Adventism is no surprise, but now there appears to be a “false latter rain” movement within the “disciples of 9/11” or “Present Truth” movement. It is not as though they were going along together as “wheat & tares” to be separated at MD, but the “books of a new order” movement came up afterward and hijacked the original faith during the “3rd generation” (“As its founders, those who possessed the true spirit of reform, pass away, their descendants come forward and ‘new model the cause.’” GC88, 385).

- Evidently the “Present Truth”, “old paths”, “disciples of 9/11” movement has entered its “3rd generation”, and the new movement is claiming that the USA is the KofS rather than part of the KofN of Rome.

- Dan. 11:3-4, EGW compares Alexander the Great to Julius Caesar, one establishing a global Greek kingdom and the other ending it at the new Roman kingdom, so they are connected by her, plus they’re both great military generals. Later the idols of the KofS get taken back and forth, which connects to Napoleon who took the idols/artworks of the nations as an act of retaliation, so retaliation is part of the story. V.9, the KofS goes “into” the fortress of the unresisting KofN (parallel to Napoleon taking the unresisting pope captive in 1798) but later, in v.10, the new KofN only got “to” the fortress of the KofS.

- v. 6-8, 281 BC > 246 BC = 35 yrs., parallels the 3.5 prophetic years (1260 yrs.) of papal rule from 538 > 1798. V.10 the two sons “overflow” the KofS but do not take Egypt “his fortress”, parallel to v.40b Reagan “overflowed” the KofS (& Bush I) in 1989 (a little chiasm) “to” his fortress, but did not enter the “fortress” of Russia itself.

- But the “new movement”, in the UK, is claiming that Russia is the KofN & the USA is the KofS.

- v. 11, Battle of Raphia parallels a battle after 1989 between Russia as the KofS and USA as the KofN where the ruthless and immoral KofS is expected to lose, but he wins instead.

- v. 12, Then the KofS gets his heart “lifted up” (2Chron. 26:16, Uzziah, KofS desecrates the Temple) and goes to “Jerusalem, where it ought not” to offer sacrifice (union of Ch. & State) and is a “sign” to God’s people at MD.

- Before 1989 there was a “proxy-war” between Russia & the USA in Afghanistan with Islam as a tool of the USA, then in the 1989 time the USA became the proxy of Rome, and now Russia & the USA (as the proxy for the KofN), are in another “proxy-war” in Syria, again with Islam as the proxy, (but of both sides now because of warring Islamic factions).  

- v. 13, “after certain years” from Raphia in 217 (MD) to Panium in 200 (MC), “many stand up against” the KofS (Russia), but then Papal Rome comes into the picture in v. 14.

- v. 15, in retaliation the USA (KofN) destroys Russia (KofS at Panium) MC.

- v. 16, But “he” (the papacy, as the “new” KofN) that cometh against “him” (the USA, as the “old” KofN), “shall stand in the “glorious land” = USA at the Sunday law, “which by his hand shall be consumed” at the SL (a type of v. 41).

- v. 17, begins with Julius Caesar (marking the end of the Greek kingdom), parallel to Alexander the Great (marking the beginning of the Greek kingdom).

- v. 18, shows the fall of the first king of Pagan Rome, parallel to the fall of the last king of Papal Rome.

 

 

1-7-17, Jeff, the 7th Seal & Omega of Apostasy; Lambert Fellowship Afternoon study.

- 1SM 204. A new group (in the UK presumably) alleges that FFA/SOTP is the new apostate organization. A brief review of the “4 generations” of Adventism. Jeff acknowledges the “new organization” is going to have a major impact.

- 1SM 202 “The track of truth lies close beside the track of error, and both tracks may seem to be one to minds which are not worked by the Holy Spirit, and which, therefore, are not quick to discern the difference between truth and error.” To fulfill prophecy there has to be some subtle “Omega” movement, just before MD.

- Their “books of a new order” is the Internet that will give their ideas wide circulation to the nations “cities” of the world, and they will do a “wonderful” work (read: “amazing” work, either good or bad). Caught up into spiritualism they will misapply and twist the Bible & SOP, and promote a false view of sanctification, urging that there is no sanctification until “midnight” (which is a “peace & safety” message). This false sanctification also lightly esteems the Sabbath, the sign of true sanctification, and the new movement will attempt to move the Waymarks of our past, effectively rejecting U. Smith’s D&R.

- As symbolized by Kellogg’s book, “The Living Temple”, this new movement misunderstands what the “Temple” is today, paralleled by the Jews in Jeremiah’s time, Christ’s time, and the Millerites; stuck on an old traditional idea of what the “Temple” is, and their “structure” will eventually be swept away by “storm & tempest”.

- Those who are right will not enter into arguments re. the presence or personality of God, even though there are problems on that issue, but will oppose the new teachings on the basis of our foundational teachings, “line upon line” and other truths learned after 9/11, with emphasis on the “Alpha” fanaticism which was the idea that “it was a sin to work” in EGW’s day.

- This new “Present Truth” movement misinterprets the 10 virgins parable, wheat & tares and Mt. 18 in a way that denies identifying open sin, ultimately throws a cloak over sin, and actually makes it impossible to eliminate sin in the camp.

- Again, to fulfill prophecy there has to be a very subtle apostate “Omega” movement, just before MD.

- What is the “final work”? GC 611, “The angel who unites in the proclamation of the third angel’s message [Rev. 18] is to lighten the whole earth with his glory. A work of world-wide extent and unwonted power is here foretold. The advent movement of 1840-44 was a glorious manifestation of the power of God; the first angel’s message was carried to every missionary station in the world, … but these are to be exceeded by the mighty movement under the last warning of the third angel.” Not showing miracles and mighty acts, though there may be some of these, but taking the [Present Truth] message to the world…. which is beginning to happen now with true Present Truth ministries springing up all over the world and organizing their work together.

- AA 347-348, the “work is sin” fanaticism. The new movement specifically says that the “work” of FFA/SOTP in organizing sister institutions around the world is THE “sinful work”, and FFA/SOTP should not do that “sinful work” of cooperating, organizing and putting together a church system so that true Gospel order can be maintained, because it is exercising “kingly power”.

- GC 191, the fanaticism of Thomas Munzer (prophetically a type of J.H. Kellogg), accused the reformers of making another Pope out of Martin Luther, while he and his followers never looked at the Scriptures, some even burned their Bibles, but did whatever “the spirit” moved them to do, casting off all restraint of law, which ultimately led them to anarchy and civil war against the government.

 

 

1-7-17, Jeff, the 7th Seal & Omega of Apostasy; sermon at Lambert Fellowship.

- We place the Millerite 7 Seals from 1798 > Oct. 22, 1844, and they begin and end with a “judgment message”. Also the 7th seal in the Millerite time was opened at the MC on 8-15-44.

- We place the Present Truth 7 Seals from 1989 > MD, and they begin and end with the message of Dan. 11:40-45. Also the 7th Seal has to be opened BEFORE MD.

- Parallel to the opening of the 7th Seal in secular history (external) is the Omega of apostasy within the Present Truth movement (internal), and apparently there is a parallel “Present Truth movement” that has come to light within the past 72 hours that teaches there is nothing to learn from Dan. 11:40-45 until MD, and that the “strong delusion” (2 Thess. 2:10) also comes at MD.

- Re. the (external) 7th Seal: Jeff remarks that Russia, as the “King of the South” is alive and well and still has a part to play in Dan. 11:40-45 (parallel to the Battle of Raphia, 217 BC), and shows a book, “New Lies for Old” (1984), by Anatole Golitsyn. Synopsis: Russian deserter explains the disinformation methods of the KGB. “Western governments, of course, are well aware that the collapse of the USSR (and East Bloc) is a strategic ruse, its purpose to lull the West into complacency, and the West keeps its silence concerning the ruse, enabling the ruse, because the political parties and institutions of the West were long co-opted by Marxists, including co-option of Western intelligence agencies such as the CIA. … The above means that the so-called ‘War on Terror’ is an operation being carried out by the Marxist co-opted governments of the West in alliance with the USSR and other Communist nations, the purpose being to (1) destroy the prominence of the West in the eyes of the world, where the West is seen (i) invading nations without cause; (ii) causing chaos around the globe; and (iii) killing over one-million civilians and boasting of torture; (2) close off non-Russian supplies of oil for export, thereby increasing the price of oil, the higher price allowing oil-exporting Russia to maintain economic stability while she modernizes and increases her military forces; (3) destroy the United States Armed Forces via the never-ending ‘War on Terror’; the ultimate purpose of the aforementioned to (4) bring about the demise of the United States in the world, opening up a political void to be filled by a new pan-national entity composed of Europe and Russia (replacing the European Union), a union ‘From the Atlantic to Vladivostok’; which will (5) see the end of NATO.”

- Back to the new parallel-apostate-pseudo-Present Truth movement (internal), and the question of whether or not God’s people have an understanding of Dan. 11:40-45 before MD.

- Dan. 9:23, Gabriel teaches Daniel re. the “complete”, chazon vision, or “dabar”. Therefore in Dan. 10:1, Daniel says twice that he understood the “thing” = “the dabar” BEFORE he was “touched” 3x, the third time being MD. Ch. 10 ends with Persia (as the USA, a two-part power, the 6th kingdom of Rev. 17) transitioning to Grecia (as the U.N., the 7th kingdom of Rev. 17) during the MC, giving the pattern for Dan. 11.

- Dan. 11 we still understand as U. Smith’s D&R does, the primary theme being that Rome, both pagan and papal, conquers 3 geographical areas before it can rule supremely. A prophetic sequence appears in v.6-8, in “the end of years” where the KofS, Ptolemy II who reigned 35 yrs. (parallel to the “3.5 yrs.” = 1260 from 538 > 1798) sent a woman, gods & treasure to the KofN as a peace treaty in 252 BC (parallel to Napoleon making a peace treaty with Rome in 1797), but they get killed and a later KofS invades, “enters into the fortress”, and reclaims the treasure without resistance in 246 BC (parallel to Bertheir’s invasion of Rome and capture of the Pope & treasure without resistance in 1798). The captive KofN fell off a horse and died, and the pope also died in captivity. In 246 the gods & treasures were restored to the temple in Egypt, parallel to the “restoration of the temple of God” from 1798 > 1844.

- v.10, in 222 BC the sons of the KofN make a revenge attack, Seleucus II & Antiochus III “the Great” (parallels Darius and Cyrus “the Great”, and also Reagan and Bush “the Great” in 1989. All “the Greats” are connected). But Antiochus III stopped at the border of Egypt, just going up “to” his fortress, not entering (parallel to the KofN taking all the satellite countries of the USSR, but stopping at the border of Russia in 1989).

- WWII ended when two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan, on Aug. “6th”  & “9th”  …and the U.N. (New World Order) was founded in 19-“45”.

- Vladimir Putin is named after Vladimir Lenin, and the name “Vladimir” means “ruler of the world”. “Donald” (Trump) also means “ruler of the world”…. so a future battle is indicated, probable.

- Dan. 11:7-10, from 246 BC > 222, the sons of the KofN invade the KofS but do not “enter his fortress” (parallel to 1989 where the KofN [papacy & USA] invade the KofS [the atheistic USSR] but do not “enter his fortress” = Russia).

- v. 11, the KofS attacks and defeats the KofN, Battle of Raphia 217 BC = MD (parallel to Russia attacking and defeating the USA in some way), but later at the Battle of Panium 200 BC = MC the KofN was victorious (parallel to the USA subsequently defeating Russia). Like the “Cold War”, which was a series of “proxy wars”, including Islamic fighters, ending in the fall of the USSR in 1989, symbolized by the fall of the Berlin Wall; the attacks could be proxy-wars, including Islamic fighters, as is happening right now in Syria just before MD, rather than a “Hot War” with direct military confrontation between the major antagonists.

- v.17-19, Julius Caesar, 47 BC, conquers the KofS but then dies. Alexander the Great & Julius Caesar had no self-control which was their demise, so they become another parallel. (Julius was succeeded by Augustus who both typify the USA in putting the papacy upon the throne of the earth.)

- Julius made a 3-part “Triumvirate” ( the First Triumvirate ) the unofficial coalition of Julius Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus in 60 BC and ( the Second Triumvirate ) a coalition formed by Antony, Lepidus, and Octavian [Augustus] in 43 BC). Both Triumvirates quickly collapsed and left the Caesar as sole dictator. (Parallel is that the USA will form a 3-part union with the U.N. and Rome, but it will collapse and leave Rome as sole dictator from the MC > SL.)

- v.16, pagan Rome, Pompey, conquering the “glorious land” = Israel in 63 BC, and destroying the temple, parallels papal Rome conquering the “glorious land” = USA at the SL and “destroying the temple” in Dan. 11:41.

- Dan. 11:11 = doubling = MD > MC. KofS (Ptolemy IV Philopator in Egypt) = Russia (both are notoriously cruel & immoral) had the Battle of Raphia (217 BC) against the much better equipped KofN (Antiochus III) and surprisingly defeated him. v.12, after his victory Ptolemy was “lifted up” and tried to offer sacrifice in the Temple in Jerusalem but was prevented from doing so, and in retaliation slaughtered thousands of Jews in Alexandria. 2Chron. 26:16, Uzziah = Azariah “doubling” (1Chron. 3:12), another KofS who tried it (union of Ch. & State) but was prevented (by “81” priests = MC), and got a “mark” of leprosy in his “forehead”.

- Back to the Battle of Panium (200 BC), renamed Caesaria Philippi, where Jesus told His disciples about His “Rock” the “Church Triumphant” at the MC, as described in the Desire of Ages, Chapter “45” foreshadowing the SL/Cross.

 

1-5-17, Jeff, The Last Apostasy

- 1SM 200-204, “books of a new order would be written”, starting in 1919 with W.W. Prescott’s “Doctrine of Christ”, then in 1957 with “Questions on Doctrine” as the “capstone”. J.H. Kellogg’s “Living Temple” was the Alpha of deadly heresies, a “track of error” that lies close beside the “track of truth”. She thought some of the leading men with “keen perception” would raise their voices against it but such a controversy arose that she had to speak out at last. The parallel to our day now is that the Omega of deadly heresies is already here, but it just hasn’t been identified yet, and only “few” will recognize it.

- EGW lists its characteristics. Among other things, the “foundations” of our faith would be removed, it will “deny the past experience of the people of God” (Present Truth people), but the proponents of the Omega would claim that EGW endorses their warped ideas re. the personality and presence of God in the believer (and doubtless citing Col. 1:27 & Rev. 10:7), which would be spiritualism.

- Wrong doctrine that ignores the prophecies of Daniel & Revelation, the Law of God, and the need to put away sin, would connect with a wrong emphasis on emotional experiences, “peace & safety” which could “sweep away the whole Christian economy”.  

- “Books of a new order” could be parallel to “Youtube videos of a new order”, and the “founders”= leaders of their new “system of intellectual philosophy” would “do a wonderful work in the cities”, symbolically meaning “nations”.

- 1SM 205, EGW is depressed by the foregoing apostasy, the “vessel” is the Present Truth movement and the “iceberg” is at MD. Rather than trying to avoid talking about the foregoing apostasy, there is an order to hit it head-on, full steam ahead, and a great shock and a “mighty shaking”. The movement is damaged but not destroyed, and it continues on its way. Suggestion by a class member is that there is a “Judas” in the “Present Truth” movement whom the disciples did not suspect, even after he left to make his betrayal.

 

1-4-17, Jeff, the 7th Seal & Omega of Apostasy

- From MD > MC, the “binding off” time of the “Priests”, we can put the 10 Plagues of Egypt, and “silence” fits the first part of the MD > MC time. Rev. 8:1, “silence in heaven”. EW 15, “Who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6:17) leads to Rev. 8:1. At MD there is also “silence” in Gethsemane (DA 693), in the cleansing of the Temple (GC 641) and on Sinai before the Law was given. There is “silence” during all major salvational events, but (Rev. 8:1) the “7th Seal” is opened BEFORE the “silence” at MD.

- GC 356, “time of the end” = 1798 = 1989.  The “Lion of the Tribe of Judah” in Rev. 6 opens 7 Seals, which is the “knowledge shall be increased” in the book of Daniel, unsealing the light on Daniel 11:40-45, etc., beginning in 1989 and continuing until the End, but the “7th Seal” is opened just before MD.

- On the Millerite Line we put the opening of the “7 Seals” from 1798 > Oct. 22, 1844, and the first message/seal was Jesus’ coming in 1843-44, which matched the last message/seal which was Jesus’ coming on Oct. 22. It was the same message through all 7 Seals just increasing info about it.

- On our Line we put the opening of the “7 Seals” from 1989 > MD (not to the SL or COP), and the first message/seal was Dan. 11:40-45, therefore the last (7th Seal removed) also has to be on Dan. 11:40-45, just before MD when the “door closes” for the “Priests”… which more (and maybe the final) light on Dan. 11:40-45 is happening now.

- New topic: the Omega of apostasy (accusations that FFA/SOTP are the “Omega”).

- Will Ross, D.E. Robinson “Railroad Depot/windstorm” vision, commonly attributed to EGW: after the “storm of persecution” hits all SDA’s disappear (with Judas just before MD), no “Denominational” leadership left …. which opponents of FFA/SOTP are saying applies to Jeff Pippenger and others who are trying to organize their work overseas to include such services as conducting baptisms, marriages, Communion, etc., rather than applying the vision to the SDA GC “Denomination”.

- For the Record: FFA/SOTP has no “denominated” name, and never has in the past. The principle is that God has to “divorce” one named-denominated “bride” before He can choose another, and that has not happened since the Protestants rejected the Millerites in 1844, and then the new named-denominated “bride” didn’t become official until much later in 1860.

- The “Alpha” of apostasy was present from the beginning of the movement in the fanaticisms that existed, primarily the “it’s a sin to work” idea, which progressing through time has become the idea that it’s a sin to do a false “work of the Lord” today. Therefore there is a “holy” work of the Lord and an unholy or “sinful” work of the Lord today. (You can guess who thinks their work is “holy” and the work of FFA/SOTP is “sinful”.)

- The SDA Name in 1860: “Now the Sabbathkeeping Adventists had a name, a name that Ellen White was shown carried Heaven’s approval. It had been a momentous conference, clearly influenced by the Spirit of God.” {1BIO 424.5} Also 2SM 384, 2 Pet. 2:3-10, Ex. 3:10 (receiving their “denominational name”), Acts 11:26, “Christian” name given sometime after “Israel” is divorced in 34 AD.

- 1SM 204, Kellogg’s “Living Temple” book engendered some fanaticism that took parts of the book to make them the whole message for Adventists. EGW asks, “Where were the watchmen?” …that were supposed to nip this “Alpha” error in the bud? The fanatics will end up denying the foundational work of the SDA Church. The same applies to the “Omega”, it has been growing for a long time and no one in the SDA GC has caught it yet (that the SDA GC has denied that the Millerite time is the prophetic pattern for the last days), and no SDA GC workers will catch it until the coming “storm & tempest” at MD sweeps the SDA GC away.

- In applying this “Omega” of apostasy (denial of our foundation) to the Present Truth movement it implies there are people in the Present Truth movement now who will deny the work done from 1989 until now. One has (some have?) already claimed that FFA/SOTP has recently started “a new organization” since 1989, has abandoned Miller’s Rules and has “substituted a system of intellectual philosophy in its place”, and that the parable of the 10 virgins applies exclusively to the Present Truth “Priests” rather than Adventism in general, and accuse Pippenger of being a “kingly power”.

- Pippenger’s take: the FFA/SOTP/Present Truth movement “ship” is about to “hit an iceberg” but should meet it head-on anyway.
