Aperçu du document


Jesus’ mediation is terminated!
The “time of trouble” has begun: “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince
which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble such as
never was since there was a nation even to that same time; and at that
time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Daniel 12:1.

Jesus has promised his “saints” that, “because he lives forever, has an unchangeable priesthood; therefore he is
also able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing that he ever lives to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:24-25. “I am with you always, even to the end of the world.” Matthew
28:20. But, “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the son of man.” Luke 17:26. When

the door of the ark closed for those who would not enter, then mediation for them ceased. Jesus has ceased his work as high
priest in heaven and will soon come upon the clouds of glory as king of kings to come for his people. Mediation is
terminated for the world, but Jesus is still mediating for his “saints” at this time, abiding in them by his holy spirit.
Satan had worked to hold the people in darkness and impenitence till the savior's mediation had ended. Jesus mediated for
Judas when he was on earth, giving Judas the words of life empowered by his holy spirit inspiration, as a living
example of the benefit of the divine mediation and ministry” of Jesus from then until now. The mediation of christ
has given us communion with, and love for God, the practice of holiness, and the destruction of sin. The
reading of God's word, under the holy divine influence of Jesus’ mediation, softens, soothes,
elevates, and sanctifies the heart. Jesus’ mediation for his “saints” gives them the privilege of prayer through
his intercession. What an exalted privilege! Finite sinful beings, of dust and ashes, are admitted through the mediation of
christ, into the audience-chamber of the most high. The soul is brought into a sacred nearness with God, and is
renewed in knowledge, and true holiness, and fortified against the assaults of the enemy.

Jesus’ divine mediation and ministry in the most
holy place has given us all communion with
God through the privilege of prayer.
Jesus’ mediation for us creates in us love for God and
gives us his character of love:
Jesus’ mediation for us gives us patient endurance
and puts kindness in our character.
Jesus’ mediation makes us not envy one another.
Jesus’ mediation takes away our propensity to brag.
Jesus’ mediation takes away our pride.
Jesus’ mediation removes our inappropriate behavior.
Jesus’ mediation removes our seeking to have our
own way.
Jesus’ mediation removes our anger.
Jesus’ mediation takes away our holding of grudges.
Jesus’ mediation makes us not mindful of slights
and causes us to forget real or imaginary offenses,
discourtesies, and grievances.
Jesus’ mediation takes away our rejoicing in
iniquity or unrighteousness.
Jesus’ mediation makes us rejoice in the truth
Jesus’ mediation gives us the ability to bear all things
that happen to us.
Jesus’ mediation gives us faith to believe every
word of God that is inspired by the holy spirit.
Jesus’ mediation gives us hope in every promise that is
inspired by the holy spirit from the word of God.

Jesus’ mediation makes us able to endure all trials
and tribulations.
Jesus’ mediation makes love never fail, his mediation
keeping the faith of Jesus and commandments of God
in us. His intercessions are our salvation from sin!
Jesus’ mediation makes us holy, true “holiness, without
which no man shall see the Eternal Creator.”Heb. 12:14
Jesus’ mediation destroys sin (“sin is transgression of
the law”).
Jesus’ holy spirit mediation gives us reading, comprehension, and faith-building, “the faith of
Jesus” to know God, by understanding his
word, through the explanations of scripture, opening our minds to “be born again.”
Jesus’ mediation softens the character.
Jesus’ mediation soothes and gives peace to the mind.
Jesus’ mediation Elevates the thoughts and
practices of the life
Jesus’ mediation sanctifies and makes holy the character to keep the commandments of God and faith of
Jesus by love for God.
Jesus’ mediation changes the heart to be born again by
the word-of-God by the sealing of the holy spirit in
man’s heart by writing God’s law in the heart.
Jesus’ mediation brings us into a sacred nearness to
God, into the audience-chamber of the most high.
Jesus’ mediation fortifies “saints” from satan’s assault.

“But the anointing [the mediation of Jesus’ holy spirit sent from him] which ye have received of him
abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you, but as the same anointing teacheth you
of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in
him. And now, little children, abide in him, that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and
not be ashamed before him at his coming.” 1 John 2:27, 28.

(11)
In this place there was a bench. He bade me to
sit down. Looking for a book, I saw it on a table, where
it was set. He took it and said to me: “It is your
book.”
(12)
I saw written on it: “The Holy Bible”. He said:
“Let us read together in the book of Paul to the
Romans, Chapter 2, verses 12, 13:”

“All those who have sinned without the law
will also perish without the law. And all those who

(14)
The Lord said to me that his work as advocate
for the world is terminated.
(15)
Brother Roy Lemke, Jesus said to me that you
should have made books with compilations like the
writings of Ellen White.
(16)
He stood up and said to me: “Follow me. Come
near.” He took me toward a great shelf where were
gathered the books of Ellen White. Below it, he
showed me where the royal-blue robe, the golden belt,
and the golden bells were arranged.
(17)
The Lord drew my attention on two (2) books
whose covers were white. He said to me: “These two
books are the beginnings of the ‘Dreams and
Visions’.” They were arranged at the end of Sister
White’s books. I saw that all that was neatly arranged.
(18)
I saw the budded rod, but I did not see any
bread. Jesus said to me that he left it upon the table,
and that no one has the right to eat these breads.

Dreams and Visions No. 358:3
(1)

Again, he said to me to sit very close to him, and
gave me the explanation of the four (4) years revealed
in Dreams and Visions.
(2)
Jesus reminded me that this prophecy was given
to me when he was in the presence of Moses.
(3)
These FOUR YEARS are terminated. This
prophecy is terminated. There are no more four years
announced. There is no more time, NO MORE
TIME. This time of four years announced is past.
There is no more time.
(4)
He explained to me that the Sunday law is near
at hand. I can still hear his very words, “It is imminent! The beast, the false prophet and the dragon
are on the point of combining their force so that the
earth become a Babylon empire.”
(5)
Jesus said to me: “Look no more for these
four years. We must be ready for the great
combat of the Eternal.”
(6)
“Now we must be ready, for the bridegroom
is ready. He comes back soon from the wedding.

THE END IS IMMINENT.” Such were the words
of the Lord. The great tribulation is approaching.
(7)
He said to me, “Now, you must bear this
message at the Church of Philadelphia, the ‘remnant’. I am going to leave you to continue my mediation near to my father for the ‘remnant’ of Philadelphia.” He stood up and said to me, “Follow me.”
(8)
I saw him resuming his work of mediation. I was
looking at him. How I loved him! How beautiful he is,
my beloved, how magnificent his smile!
(9)
This time, Jesus no longer had this weight of
vesture with the bells upon his body. I saw him moving, this time, with ease, as if happy, joyful to be freed,
and to have fulfilled his task, and no more having this
weight to bear upon his body.
(10)
I saw him. He again said to me, “Come near,
but not into the most holy place.”
(11)
I was close, but trembling. Smoke was ascending in the most holy place. As by love for me and by
grace, he opened my nostrils, and a sweet smell was
coming to my nose.
(12)
This smoke was a fragrant smell, that did a lot
of good to me. I saw how he was giving himself to this
mediation. I was happy to see him balancing this fuming and fragrant censer.
(13)
Being very close to him, this time he said to me,
“I come! There is no more prophecy concerning the
four (4) years revealed. There is no more time.
THE END IS IMMINENT. The great combat of
the Eternal is near at hand. Be ready! Pray, pray!
I come! Be faithful!”
(14)
Remaining still a moment by his sides, I saw
Jesus putting his censer down. And I heard a song,
TRIOS, in the holy place, that was resounding very
loud. We were listening to it, and I recognized this
hymn that I sing often, Hymn No. 519:
(15)
Yes, your love is a sublime love,
It is higher than the highest summit,
It is deep as the azure of the heavens.
What am I, O God, to search the mysterious
abyss of it.
(16)
The song of the TRIOS was about to get to the
second stanza, when Jesus charged the angel to bring
me back. And I lost the vision.
(17)
With Jesus I am well. The things of the earth, I
did not know them anymore. All that was erased from
my memory. I had the impression of having EVER
known him.
(18)
I say to my beloved brothers and sisters: “Hold
on! Jesus comes! Let us be ready, and let us pray,
for soon the master is coming.” (French Hymn 538 to
be translated.)
(19)
Maranatha! Jesus COMES!

Let us retain the words of the Lord: Before
leaving him, he said to me, “There is no more four

years. The end is imminent. Be ready!”
Love and greetings, J.S.

“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials
of the wrath of God upon the earth. . . And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art
righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. . . for they are
worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous
are thy judgments. . . and they repented not to give him glory. . . and repented not of
their deeds. . . Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest
he walk naked, and they see his shame. . . And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air, and
there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying,

“It is done!”
Revelation 16:1, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 15, 17, 19.

I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus' work was done in the sanctuary,
and then will come the seven last plagues. These plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous; they
thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them, and that if they could rid the earth of us, the
plagues would then be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for
deliverance. This was the time of Jacob's trouble. [“Jacob said. . . ‘I am not worthy of the least of all
the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast showed unto thy servant. . . Deliver me, I pray thee.’”
Genesis 32:9, 11. And Jacob pleaded the promise: “You said, ‘I will surely do you good, and make your seed as
the sand of the sea. . .’” Genesis 32:12. “Your name will. . . be called. . . Israel {meaning God prevails}.” Genesis
32:28.] Then all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the voice of God. The one
hundred and forty-four thousand triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory of God. Christian Experience,
pages 100, 101. [Note that “Israel,” Jacob’s “new name,” does not mean that “Jacob Supplanter prevails,” but that
“God prevails.” In other words, God won the wrestling match to change Jacob’s character to submission.]
“I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:2, 3. “I have
foretold you all things. But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and
the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall
be shaken. And then shall they see the son of man coming in the CLOUDS with great power and
glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four
winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.” Mark 13:23-27.
While I was in the most holy place, and that Jesus was arranging his vesture and was instructing me about
his mediation which is terminating, he said to me, “Look, the angel of the seventh cup full of the
wrath of God has arrived upon the earth.” It was very rapid. Seen from heaven, Jesus said to me, “The earth
is shaking.” I saw a volcano that had just awakened while it had been previously extinguished for a long time.
“It is the sign of his presence,” said Jesus to me. I was observing; looking from heaven, the earth appeared to
me near heaven. And this volcano that was spitting thick smoke and toxic ashes, it appeared to me to have the
effect of a mushroom from an atomic bomb which was going up very high in the sky. I heard cries, earthquakes, hurricanes, cyclones. The earth was in torment. I heard voices that were coming from the earth:
“It is the end of the world!” And saying that there were many victims. He [Jesus] said to me, “The nations are
angry and have caused the cup of my wrath to overflow. Sin, evil, have reached their paroxysm [a sudden
or recurrence of symptoms, as of a disease]. Floods, earthquakes, social crises, famine, these are the
signs of my return and the end of my mediation.” Now this angel must pour out this drink of wrath into the
air, Revelation 16, verse 17. He is already here below and is waiting for Jesus’ order to execute his design. This
is why the earth is unruly. She is in childbirth sufferings, for the angel of wrath has come down toward her. From
the most holy place, Jesus reveals to us that his mediation is terminating. He has not left the most holy
place yet, but it cannot be long (it cannot delay). He is ready to come out now. The beast that is coming up will
do the prophecy and will take it to its term. She will do the prophecy. It will go up to the end. “I will fight in
order to fulfill this prophecy,” she declared; “I am the prophecy.” Such were the words that I heard in the vision.
The Lord no longer has on his mediation robe. He is Jesus, by his blood, pursuing for how much time to

erase the sins of his people. I did not hear, “It is done!” I did not hear that. But what I have seen is that it
will be done without delay, followed by the seventh plague. In the vision, I have seen that the temple was starting
to be filled with smoke. Jesus will soon put an end to the history of this world of sin. Be ready! Be ready! Be
ready! Press together! JESUS COMES! The mediation work is ending! Dreams and Visions 190:9:1-16,
May 14, 2008.

mediation

Before Jesus’
ends, God calls to his people: “Babylon the great has
fallen, has fallen, and has become the habitation of demons, and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison
of every unclean and hateful bird, for all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication,
and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are
waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. Come out of her, my people, that ye
be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues, for her sins have reached unto heaven,
and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18:2, 3, 4, 5.
God’s people being called out of “Babylon,” indicates that “Babylon” is the church of God on earth,
and the words “fallen, has fallen,” indicate that those churches have “fallen” into “sins” and “iniquity,”
and have indoctrinated “sins” and “iniquity” into their churches. “Sin is the transgression of the law.” 1 John
3:4. “Iniquity” means known sins and also sins unknown to the person. Jesus said, “But if thou wilt enter
into life, keep the commandments,” and that “saints” “keep the commandments of God AND
the faith of Jesus.” Matthew 19:17; Revelation 14:12. The churches of God have accepted a false gospel, of many
variations, of what they call “righteousness by faith,” but John says that their “righteousness by faith” is
unrighteousness by presumption: “Little children, let no man deceive you; he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.” 1 John 3:7. Jesus said, “I have kept my father’s commandments, and abide in his love.” John 15:10. Jesus invites us to “abide in me, and I in you.” John 15:4.
“Jesus christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8. He says, “If ye love me,
keep my commandments.” John 14:15. These “fallen” churches are called “Babylon,” because they are
worshiping God according to the religion of the Babylonian sun god, Tammuz, keeping sun-day,
trampling upon the fourth commandment of God, which commemorates God, through his word (Jesus), creating
the world in six days, and making the seventh-day Sabbath a day for mankind to be sanctified (made
holy), “holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” Hebrews 12:14. “My Sabbaths ye
shall keep. . . that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you.” Exodus 31:13. Jesus
“is Lord even of the Sabbath Day” and wants us to know by the Sabbath, that “he that abideth in
me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without me ye can do nothing.”
Matthew 12:8; John 15:5. The Sabbath Day blessing is the gift of Jesus abiding within us (through his holy
commandment-keeping spirit) in order to be “doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving
your own selves.” James 1:22.
The message is: “There is no more time.” The Lord is ending soon his work as an intercessor
in the most holy place. He is interceding for those who have received the seal of God and who have
been justified, purified, sanctified by his grace, by the blood of the lamb. There is no more time.
. . They cry: “It is the end of the world!” Lamentations, misery, famine, fires, tsunamis, crimes,
immorality, transgression of the Sabbath of the Eternal, with the UPC, which is the mark
of the beast. I understood in an instant that the wrath of God kindled against the transgressors
of his law who have trampled underfoot the blood of Jesus, the Sabbath [of Jesus], his infinite
love, and his appeals to repentance. Jesus, by sending this angel, was without pity for the
transgressors of his law. “The inhabitants of the earth have trampled underfoot the commandments of
God,” said the Lord to me.” “They eat, dress themselves, buy, and sell with the UPC, which is the mark
of the beast. This is why they are enduring the wrath of God.” All these sufferings, these cries of despair,
were arriving in the most holy place. My ears were perceptible to all that was happening upon the earth. I was
trembling. I heard very loud thunders, subdued rumblings. Jesus said to me: “They are the noises of the
tsunamis in the seventh plague. The islands will disappear.” The Lord looked at me and said: “Do not be
afraid. My grace is sufficient for thee. Feed my lambs.” Dreams and Visions 194:9:3-5, 20-25.
And great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of
the fierceness of his wrath, and every island fled away, and the mountains were
not found, and there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent

[70 to 100 pounds], and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for the plague thereof
was exceeding great.” Revelation 16:19-21.

impenitent, unrepentant sinner who is not “being born again. . . by the word of God!” 1 Peter 1:23.
“I saw the beast [“a man”], and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to
make war against him [Jesus] that sat on the horse, and against his army.” #MEDIATION ENDS#
“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he
deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were
cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone [divine incense, sulphur].” Revelation 19:19-20.
In the above reference, the Disciple John tells us that a man [the beast], who is inspired by demons, who rules
over “the kings of the earth,” joins with all “the kings of the earth” to make war against the
“saints,” who “keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus,” Revelation 14:12. “And
as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the son of man.” Luke 17:26. “The
longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight
souls were saved by water.” 1 Peter 3:20. “How narrow is the gate, and constricted is the way
that leads to life! Few are those who find it!” Matthew 7:14 MB. All the nations on earth, through their
kings, will join together with “the man of sin” to “make war against” Jesus.
“The time is near when he [God] will say, “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut
thy doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For,
behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the
earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21. . .God will reward them
double for their sins. Concerning Babylon, the symbol of the apostate church, he says to his ministers
of judgment, “Her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward
her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works; in the cup which
she hath filled fill to her double.” Revelation 18:5, 6. Christ’s Object Lessons, by E.G. White, pages 178, 179.
The inhabitants of the earth have forgotten their creator; therefore he is reminding them who the creator God
is, by pouring out upon them his wrath contained in the seventh cup. He withdraws his mercy from them. By the
side of Jesus, I was in security, hidden in his tabernacle, sheltered from all the calamities of the seventh plague.
The Lord reminded me not to forget the Psalm 91. It must be constantly present in our heart and in our mind.
“Soon, very soon,” said Jesus to me, “will resound these words, It is done!” from him who has had the patience
to wait, to call, and to entreat the sinners. The door of God’s mercy will be closed by these words, “It is done!”
The world will know then a pain that no one will be able to alleviate. Already the seventh plague is making its
way, plunging the men into terrible sufferings. Then, and only then, terrible will be these words: the mountains
will move, and the islands will flee from his face. The children of God have nothing to fear, hidden in his
tabernacle, sheltered from all the unleashed elements, they will be safe under his wings near God and Jesus.
Jesus comes! He comes! There is no more time! Let us be ready! Dreams and Visions 194:10:6-12, August 31, 2008.
The world has had 120 years on July 14, 2009; 120 years of preaching repentance, which brings us to what
the Lord said: “We have no more time.” Preaching time is terminated for the world and for the church. Jesus
comes! The Lord no longer wears his priestly robe. He put it down, the turban, his robe with the bells. He only
has the fuming censer that he holds in his hand. What does that mean for the church and for the world? The Lord
is asking our Brother Roy Lemke to warn the church of his role, that he now has in the most holy place. When

Our Lord. . . is no longer officiating as sacrificer (priest), but as Jesus, our sovereign master, with his
censer with which he is offering to the father the prayers of his saints. . . And after having spent this moment with
Jesus, no longer as priest, but as my beloved master and Lord, I felt my heart pounding in my chest, a heart that
was saying to me: “I love him!” It is then that this place filled up with smoke. Jesus was in this smoke, and my
messenger came to fetch me; and Jesus looked at me once, and then he turned his gaze upon the altar. Dreams and

Jesus' mediation is terminated! — Page 6 of 10

Jesus’ “everlasting gospel” mediation
(“testifying both to the Jews [“salvation is of the Jews” John 4:22], and also to the Greeks,

repentance toward God
and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” [Acts 20:21] ) is terminated:
Jesus preached “the everlasting gospel”: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at
hand!” Matthew 4:17. “But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17.
“Neither do I condemn thee; go and sin no more.” John 8:11. “He that committeth sin is of the
devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might
destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin.” 1 John 3:8. “That
which is born of the spirit is spirit. . . Ye must be born again.” John 3:6, 7. “The law is spiritual.”
Romans 7:14. “God sending his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.”
Romans 8:3. Jesus “will magnify the law and make it honorable.” Isaiah 42:21. The churches preach a “false gospel”
to make a profession of faith, with no repentance necessary, “and the times of this ignorance God winked at, but
now commandeth all men everywhere to repent.” Acts 17:30. “But though we, or an angel from
heaven, preach any other gospel [such as a “once saved always saved, no need for repentance toward God
false gospel] unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8. The
churches have become “harlot” daughters of Babylon, and are worshiping their pastors, leaders,
priests, etc. [“a man,” Revelation 13;18], instead of obeying the gospel requirement of “repentance toward
God” by the faith and grace provided by Jesus’ MEDIATION by his sending his holy spirit, “whom God
hath given to them that obey him.” Acts 5:32. Jesus said, “But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:9. And that is exactly what the
churches do when they teach people to worship on Sunday and to ignore God’s fourth commandment seventh-day
Sabbath memorial of his creative power to create the earth in six days. “For the son of man is Lord even
of the Sabbath Day.” Matthew 12:8. Jesus said unto him, “Get thee hence, satan, for it is written, Thou shalt
worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Matthew 4:10.

The wrath of God is falling upon those who have
rejected God’s gift of repentance that he has
provided through his abiding presence within us,
and through our abiding presence in him.
“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them
that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a
loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him, for the hour of his judgment is come, and worship him that
created heaven and earth, and the sea and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel,
saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the
wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man
worship the beast [“a man”] and his image [icon], and receive his mark [ååå: 666 in Hebrew] in his
forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without
mixture into the cup of his indignation.” Revelation 14:6-10. “And after these things I saw another angel come down
from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his glory, and he cried mightily with a strong
voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold
of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird, for all nations have drunk of the wine
of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication
with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”
Revelation 18:1-4. “And he causeth all [through the UPC: Universal Product 666 Code, so that no one can

“buy or sell” from “the merchants of the earth” without it], both small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark [666 chip or pixel] in their right hand, or in their foreheads, and that no man
might buy or sell, save he that had the mark [ååå: 666 in Hebrew], or the name of the beast, or the
number [ååå: 666 in Hebrew] of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the
number [ååå: 666 in Hebrew] of the beast, for it is the number [ååå: 666 in Hebrew] of a man, and his
number is 6 6 6 [ååå: 666 in Hebrew].” Revelation 13:16-18.
My brothers and sisters, it is the end, the end of all things. Jesus said to me, that he will come back when the
winds are released; and they are on the point of being released; this is what the Lord said to me. The prophecy
of the seven angels is clear today, revealed by Jesus himself, for this prophecy has not been understood and was
misinterpreted. The seventh angel is upon the earth. My brothers and sisters, do not be astonished that
the great of this world soon will realize that it is the end of the world. “And this angel will pour out the
drops of the wrath of God upon the countries that are immoral, and who trample under feet the liberty of conscience,” said the Lord to me. Yes, this angel is at work. This is why the Lord said to me not to fear the seventh plague, that the brothers and sisters should take into account the fact that the four winds are still held
back. . . The Lord will leave the most holy place and say: “Stop it! Know that I am God. I rule the
nations; I rule the earth.” The Lord will say, “It is done!” I was in heaven, and I heard a very loud
thunder, and I heard a voice whispering in my ear: “My grace is sufficient for thee.” I saw the twenty-four
elders prostrating themselves with their faces downward, and I heard the voice of the angelic hosts singing:
Alleluia! My brothers and sisters, there is no more time. The winds are about to be released. Press
together! Hold yourselves ready! “For those who did not have faith,” the Lord said to me, “it is at
their risk and peril. They will fall and will get back up no more.” Dreams and Visions 243:7:1-12,
January 21, 2010.
The body of text below comes from Early Writings, by E.G. White, pages 279-284, with notes by Roy Lemke.

When Jesus says, “It is done!,” all the
saints will be numbered & sealed!
I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven. An angel
with a writer's inkhorn by his side returned from the
earth and reported to Jesus that his work was done, and
the saints were numbered and sealed. Then I
saw Jesus, who had been ministering before the ark containing the ten commandments, throw down the censer.
He raised his hands, and with a loud voice said, "It is
done!" And all the angelic host laid off their crowns as
Jesus made the solemn declaration, "He that is unjust,
let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him
be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him
be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him
be holy still."
“But in the days of the voice of the seventh
angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery
of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his
servants the prophets. . . And he said unto me, Thou
must prophesy again before many peoples, and
nations, and tongues, and kings.” Revelation 10:7, 11.
“Behold, I show you a mystery: We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the
twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the
trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians
15:51-52. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven
with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and
with the trumpet of God, and the dead in christ shall

rise first; then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall
we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

All kingdoms broken when Jesus
reigns supreme!
Every case had been decided for life or death. While
Jesus had been ministering in the sanctuary, the
judgment had been going on for the righteous
dead, and then for the righteous living. [“And
behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with
me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”
Revelation 22:12.]
Christ had received his kingdom, having
made the atonement for his people and blotted out
their sins. [“And in the days of these kings shall the
God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall
never be destroyed, and the kingdom shall not be left to
other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all
these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” Daniel
2:44.]
The subjects of the kingdom were made up. The marriage of the lamb was consummated. And the kingdom,
and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole
heaven, was given to Jesus and the heirs of salvation, and
Jesus was to reign as king of kings and lord
of lords.
As Jesus moved out of the most holy place, I
heard the tinkling of the bells upon his garment; and as

he left, a cloud of darkness covered the
inhabitants of the earth.

In one hour judgment comes!
There was then no mediator between
guilty man and an offended God. While Jesus
had been standing between God and guilty man, a
restraint was upon the people; but when he stepped
out from between man and the father, the restraint
was removed and satan had entire control of the
finally impenitent. It was impossible for the plagues
to be poured out while Jesus officiated in the sanctuary;
but as his work there is finished, and his intercession
closes, there is nothing to stay the wrath of God, and
it breaks with fury upon the shelterless head of the guilty
sinner, who has slighted salvation and hated reproof. In
that fearful time, after the close of Jesus' mediation, the
saints were living in the sight of a holy God without an
intercessor. Every case was decided, every jewel
numbered. Jesus tarried a moment in the outer
apartment of the heavenly sanctuary, and the sins which
had been confessed while he was in the most holy place
were placed upon satan, the originator of sin, who must
suffer their punishment.
[“Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O
daughter of the Chaldeans {Babylon}, for thou shalt
no more be called, the lady of kingdoms. . . these two
things shall come to thee in a moment in one day,
the loss of children and widowhood. . . desolation shall
come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know. . .
Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn
them. . . Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou
hast labored, even thy merchants, from thy youth. . .
none shall save thee.” Isaiah 47:5, 9, 11, 14, 15. “Alas, alas
that great city Babylon, that mighty city, for in one
hour is thy judgment come, and the merchants
of the earth. . . and the kings of the earth who
have committed fornication. . . with her. . .” Revelation
18:10, 11, 9.]

“And he shall send his angels with a
great sound of a TRUMPET, and
they shall gather together his elect
from the four winds!” Matthew 24:31.
Then I saw Jesus lay off his priestly attire and
clothe himself with his most kingly robes. Upon his
head were many crowns, a crown within a crown. Surrounded by the angelic host, he left heaven. The
plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of
the earth. Some were denouncing God and cursing
him. Others rushed to the people of God and begged to
be taught how they might escape his judgments. But the
saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners
had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last

burden borne, the last warning given. The sweet voice of
mercy was no more to invite them. When the saints,
and all heaven, were interested for their salvation, they
had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been
set before them. Many desired life, but made no effort to
obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no
atoning blood to cleanse the guilty, no compassionate
savior to plead for them, and cry, "Spare, spare the sinner a little longer." All heaven had united with Jesus, as
they heard the fearful words, "It is done. It is
finished." The plan of salvation had been accomplished, but few had chosen to accept it. And as mercy's sweet
voice died away, fear and horror seized the wicked. With
terrible distinctness they heard the words, "Too late! too
late!"

“I will darken the earth in the clear
day. . . a famine in the land. . . of
hearing the words of the Lord!”
Amos 8:9, 11.

Those who had not prized God's word were hurrying
to and fro, wandering from sea to sea, and from the north
to the east, to seek the word of the Lord. Said the angel,
“They shall not find it. There is a famine in the land;
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but for
hearing the words of the Lord.” Amos 8:11. What would
they not give for one word of approval from God! But
no, they must hunger and thirst on. Day after day have
they slighted salvation, prizing earthly riches and earthly
pleasure higher than any heavenly treasure or inducement. They have rejected Jesus and despised
his saints. The “filthy must remain filthy”
forever. Revelation 22:11.

Ministers of unrighteousness
Many of the wicked were greatly enraged as they suffered the effects of the plagues. It was a scene of fearful
agony. Parents were bitterly reproaching their children,
and children their parents, brothers their sisters, and sisters their brothers. Loud, wailing cries were heard in
every direction, "It was you who kept me from receiving
the truth which would have saved me from this awful
hour." The people turned upon their ministers with bitter
hate and reproached them, saying, "You have not warned
us. You told us that all the world was to be converted,
and cried, Peace, peace, to quiet every fear that was
aroused. You have not told us of this hour; and those
who warned us of it you declared to be fanatics and evil
men, who would ruin us." But I saw that the ministers
did not escape the wrath of God. Their suffering was tenfold greater than that of their people.
[“They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of
my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there
is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14.]

Jesus' mediation is terminated! — Page 9 of 10

The Time of Trouble
“Saints. . . keep the commandments of
God and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation
14:12.

including the Sabbath 4th commandment.

I saw the saints leaving the cities and villages, and
associating together in companies, and living in the most
solitary places. Angels provided them food and
water, while the wicked were suffering from hunger
and thirst. Then I saw the leading men of the earth consulting together, and satan and his angels busy around
them. I saw a writing, copies of which were scattered in
different parts of the land, giving orders that unless the
saints should yield their peculiar faith, give up the
Sabbath, and observe the first day of the week, the
people were at liberty after a certain time to put them to
death. But in this hour of trial the saints were calm
and composed, trusting in God and leaning upon his
promise that a way of escape would be made for them. In
some places, before the time for the decree to be executed, the wicked rushed upon the saints to slay them;
but angels in the form of men of war fought for them.
Satan wished to have the privilege of destroying the
saints of the most high; but Jesus bade his angels watch
over them. God would be honored by making a covenant
with those who had kept his law, in the sight of the
heathen round about them; and Jesus would be honored
by translating, without their seeing death, the
faithful, waiting ones who had so long expected him.

“He gathered them together into. . .
Armageddon. . . the beast, and the
kings of the earth and their armies.
. . to make war.” Revelation 16:16; 19:19.

Soon I saw the saints suffering great mental anguish.
They seemed to be surrounded by the wicked inhabitants
of the earth. Every appearance was against them. Some
began to fear that God had at last left them to perish by
the hand of the wicked. But if their eyes could have been
opened, they would have seen themselves surrounded by
angels of God. Next came the multitude of the angry
wicked, and next a mass of evil angels, hurrying on the
wicked to slay the saints. But before they could approach
God's people, the wicked must first pass this company of
mighty, holy angels. This was impossible. The angels of
God were causing them to recede and also causing the
evil angels who were pressing around them to fall back.

“The beast. . . false prophet. . . were
cast alive into a lake of fire.” Revelation 20.

It was an hour of fearful, terrible agony to the saints.
Day and night they cried unto God for deliverance. To
outward appearance, there was no possibility of their
escape. The wicked had already begun to triumph, crying
out, "Why doesn't your God deliver you out of our
hands? Why don't you go up and save your lives?" But
the saints heeded them not, Like Jacob, they were
wrestling with God. The angels longed to deliver
them, but they must wait a little longer; the people of
God must drink of the cup and be baptized with the
baptism. The angels, faithful to their trust, continued
their watch. God would not suffer his name to be reproached among the heathen. The time had nearly come
when he was to manifest his mighty power and gloriously deliver his saints. For his name's glory he would
deliver every one of those who had patiently waited for
him and whose names were written in the
book. Early Writings, pages 279-284.

Mediatorial work purifies and puts away sin before mediation ends
Says the prophet: "Who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? For he is like
a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap, and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he shall purify the sons
of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness." Malachi
3:2, 3. Those who are living upon the earth when the intercession of christ shall cease in the sanctuary
above are to stand in the sight of a holy God without a mediator. Their robes must be spotless, their characters
must be purified from sin by the blood of sprinkling. Through the grace of God and their own diligent
effort they must be conquerors in the battle with evil. While the investigative judgment is going forward in heaven,
while the sins of penitent believers are being removed from the sanctuary, there is to be a special work of purification, of putting away of sin, among God's people upon earth. This work is more clearly presented in the
messages of Revelation 14. The Great Controversy, page 425.

Man’s desperately wicked heart!
(Part One)
Therefore, man needs an omniscient, omnipotent, “God with us,” risen savior
(“from sin”) in order to have that “holiness, without which no man shall see God”!
By Roy Lemke

“You must be born again” having the law of God written upon the
heart and mind to do God’s will, or you are too wicked to enter heaven!
“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is, for he shall be as a tree
planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her
leaf shall be green, and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. The

heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who
can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according
to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:8-10. “And God saw
that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of
the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5.

Only by beholding christ can we
see our own sinful selfrighteousness!
[No man can of himself understand his
errors. "The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately wicked; who can know it?" Jeremiah
17:9. The lips may express a poverty of soul that the
heart does not acknowledge. While speaking to God of
poverty of spirit, the heart may be swelling with the
conceit of its own superior humility and exalted
righteousness. In one way only can a true knowledge of
self be obtained. We must behold christ. It is
ignorance of him that makes men so uplifted in their
own righteousness. When we contemplate his purity
and excellence, we shall see our own weakness and poverty and defects as they really
are. We shall see ourselves lost and hopeless, clad in garments of self-righteousness, like every
other sinner. We shall see that if we are ever saved, it will not be through our own goodness, but through God's infinite grace.

Faith must renounce all self-trust,
depending wholly upon Jesus’ infinite power to overcome any sin!
The prayer of the publican was heard because it
showed dependence reaching forth to lay
hold upon omnipotence. Self to the publican

appeared nothing but shame. Thus it must be seen by
all who seek God. By faith – faith that renounces all self-trust – the needy suppliant
is to lay hold upon infinite power.

Only by divine infinite power can
we empty self of self, therefore we
must renounce self and seek Jesus’
divine holy spirit mediation!
No outward observances can take the place of simple faith and entire renunciation of self. But
no man can empty himself of self. We can only
consent for christ to accomplish the work. Then the
language of the soul will be, Lord, take my heart;
for I cannot give it. It is thy property. Keep it
pure, for I cannot keep it for thee. Save me
in spite of myself, my weak, unchristlike
self. Mold me, fashion me, raise me into a
pure and holy atmosphere, where the rich
current of thy love can flow through my
soul.

Renounce self daily, reaching out
to God with heartbreaking
confession of sin and humbling of
the soul, depending on christ to
save us from our sinfulness daily!
It is not only at the beginning of the christian life
that this renunciation of self is to be made. At

Man's desperately wicked heart! — Page 1 of 8

every advance step heavenward it is to be
renewed. All our good works are dependent on a
power outside of ourselves. Therefore there needs to be
a continual reaching out of the heart after
God, a continual, earnest, heartbreaking
confession of sin and humbling of the soul
before him. Only by constant renunciation
of self and dependence on christ can we
walk safely.

Far away from Jesus we see
nothing wrong with ourselves,
but by steadfastly beholding Jesus
we see the sinfulness of our
wicked hearts, that only he can
save us from!
The nearer we come to Jesus and the more
clearly we discern the purity of his character, the
more clearly we shall discern the exceeding
sinfulness of sin and the less we shall feel like
exalting ourselves. Those whom heaven recognizes as
holy ones are the last to parade their own goodness.
The apostle Peter became a faithful minister of christ,
and he was greatly honored with divine light and power; he had an active part in the upbuilding of christ's
church; but Peter never forgot the fearful experience of
his humiliation; his sin was forgiven; yet well he
knew that for the weakness of character which had
caused his fall only the grace of christ could
avail. He found in himself nothing in which to glory.

All who steadfastly behold Jesus
will put no confidence in their
own righteousness!
None of the apostles or prophets ever claimed to be
without sin. Men who have lived nearest to God, men
who would sacrifice life itself rather than knowingly
commit a wrong act, men whom God had honored with
divine light and power, have confessed the sinfulness
of their own nature. They have put no confidence
in the flesh, have claimed no righteousness of their
own, but have trusted wholly in the righteousness of
christ. So will it be with all who behold christ.

The more we seek Jesus’
sufficiency, his holy spirit abiding
within, to save us from sin, the
more repentance and sanctification deepens as we remember and
loathe our own evil ways!
At every advance step in christian experience our
repentance will deepen. It is to those whom the
Lord has forgiven, to those whom he acknowledges as
his people, that he says, "Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings
that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves in your own sight." Ezekiel 36:31. Again he
says, "I will establish my covenant with thee, and
thou shalt know that I am the Lord; that thou
mayest remember, and be confounded, and
never open thy mouth any more because of
thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee
for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord
God." Ezekiel 16:62, 63. Then our lips will not be opened
in self-glorification. We shall know that our sufficiency is in christ alone. We shall make the
apostle's confession our own. "I know that in me
(that is, in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing."
Romans 7:18. "God forbid that I should glory, save in
the cross of our Lord Jesus christ, by whom the
world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world."
Galatians 6:14.

Fear lest God be kept from
working in you!
Fear lest your will overrides God’s
will!
Fear lest your self interpose
between you and God!
Fear to walk alone without the
abiding messiah!
Fear to trust your own strength!
In harmony with this experience is the command,
"Work out your own salvation with fear and
trembling. For it is God which worketh in
you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."
Philippians 2:12, 13. God does not bid you fear that he will
fail to fulfill his promises, that his patience will weary,

Man's desperately wicked heart! — Page 2 of 8

or his compassion be found wanting. Fear lest
your will shall not be held in subjection to
christ's will, lest your hereditary and cultivated traits of character shall control your
life. "It is God which worketh in you both to will
and to do of his good pleasure." Fear lest self
shall interpose between your soul and the
great master worker. Fear lest self-will
shall mar the high purpose that through
you God desires to accomplish. Fear to
trust to your own strength, fear to withdraw your hand from the hand of christ
and attempt to walk life's pathway without his abiding presence.

Praise God; shun flattery, praise,
accusing, and condemnation of
Always remember that we are a
stiff-necked, rebellious, wicked,
people!
“Speak not thou in thine heart, . . . ‘For my
righteousness the Lord hath brought me in to
possess this land. . . Not for thy righteousness, or
for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to
possess their land, but for the wickedness of
these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out
from before thee, and that he may perform the
word which the Lord sware unto thy fathers,
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Understand therefore,
that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good
land to possess it for thy righteousness, for thou
art a stiffnecked people. Remember, and forget
not, how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to
wrath in the wilderness, from the day that thou
didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came
unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the
Lord.” Deuteronomy 9:4-7.

men are "deceitful above all things, and desperately
wicked." 5 Testimonies, page 194.]

man!
We need to shun everything that would encourage
pride and self-sufficiency; therefore we should
beware of giving or receiving flattery or praise.
It is satan's work to flatter. He deals in flattery as well
as in accusing and condemnation. Thus he
seeks to work the ruin of the soul. Those who give
praise to men are used by satan as his agents. Let the
workers for christ direct every word of praise
away from themselves. Let self be put out of
sight. Christ alone is to be exalted. "Unto him that
loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own
blood," let every eye be directed, and praise from
every heart ascend. (Revelation 1:5.) Christ’s Object Lessons,
pages 160, 161, 162.]

Although you have done wickedly,
repent of your sins, do right, fear
God, and serve him in truth with
your whole heart! Otherwise your
wages will be death!
“Fear not! Ye have done all this wickedness; yet, turn not aside from following the
Lord, but serve the Lord with all your
heart, and turn ye not aside, for then should ye go
after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver,
for they are vain. For the Lord will not forsake his
people for his great name’s sake, because it hath
pleased the Lord to make you his people.
Moreover, as for me, God forbid that I should sin
against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you, but
I will teach you the good and the right way. Only
fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with
all your heart, for consider how great
things he hath done for you. But if ye shall
still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed,
both ye and your king.” 1 Samuel 12:20-25.

is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked! Who can know it?" Self-flattery may be construed
into christian emotion and zeal. Self-love and confidence may give us assurance that we are right when we
are far from meeting the requirements of God's word.

Daily search the scriptures to
examine the foundation of your
hope, to perseveringly overcome
selfishness and self-confidence.
Look to Jesus!
The Bible is full, clear, and explicit; the character
of the true disciple of christ is marked out with exactness. We must search the scriptures with
humble hearts, trembling at the word of
the Lord, if we would not be in any way deceived in regard to our true character. There
must be persevering effort to overcome selfishness and self-confidence. Self-examination
must be thorough, that there be no danger of selfdeception. A little catechizing of self on special occasions is not sufficient. [A little giving of religious instruction occasionally to self is not sufficient.] Daily
examine the foundation of your hope, and
see whether you are indeed in the love of christ. Deal
truly with your own hearts, for you cannot afford to run
any risk here. Count the cost of being a wholehearted
christian, and then gird on the armor. Study the
pattern; look to Jesus, and be like him. Your
peace of mind, your hope of eternal salvation, depend
The Church of Philadelphia

on faithfulness in this work. As christians we are less
thorough in self-examination than in anything else; it
is no wonder, then, that we make such slow advancement in understanding self.

Earnest vigorous effort must be
initiated to examine self and to
overcome self-love!
I am writing these things to you because I want you
to be saved [from sin]. I do not want to discourage you,
but to urge you to more earnest, vigorous
effort. Self-love will prompt you to make a superficial work of self-examination; but let no vain
confidence cheat you out of eternal life. Do not build
yourself up on the mistakes and errors of others [thinking that you are a better christian than someone else
who claims to be a christian], but between God and
your own soul settle the important question upon
which hangs your eternal destiny. 5 Testimonies, pages 332,
333.]

The upright in heart are saved!
The wicked are not!
“The righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in
heart.” Psalm 7:9.

The wicked only partially, once in
a while, maybe, thinks of God!
“For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire,
and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God. God is not in all
his thoughts. His ways are always grievous; thy
judgments are far above out of his sight; as for all
his enemies, he puffeth at them. He hath said in his
heart, I shall not be moved, for I shall never be in
adversity.” Psalm 10:3-6.

Man’s desperately wicked heart!
(Part Two)
Therefore, man needs an omniscient, omnipotent, “God with us,” risen savior (“from sin”) in
order to have that “holiness, without which no man shall see God”!
By Roy Lemke

“You must be born again” having the law of God written upon the heart and
mind to do God’s will, or you are too wicked to enter heaven!
“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is, for he shall be as a tree planted by
the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green,
and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. The

heart is deceitful
above all things, and desperately wicked. Who can know it? I, the Lord, search
the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the
fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:8-10. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was
great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5.

The wicked (in and out of the
church) love to shoot their arrows at
the righteous!
“For, behold, the wicked bend their bows. They
set their arrows on the strings, that they may shoot in
darkness at the upright in heart.” Psalm 11:2 MB.

The wicked (in and out of the
church) love to shoot their wicked
words at the righteous!
“The transgression of the wicked saith within my
heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes, for he
flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be
found to be hateful. The words of his mouth are
iniquity and deceit; he hath left off to be wise, and
to do good. He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he
setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth
not evil.” Psalm 36:1-4.

We are not to join the wicked in their
sins, but are to come out from among
them, and partake not of their sins. .
.”!
“A froward heart shall depart from me. I will not
know a wicked person.” Psalm 101:4.

A studied, meditated upon, answer is
a fruit of the righteous!
“The heart of the righteous studieth to answer, but
the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. The
Lord is far from the wicked, but he heareth the prayer
of the righteous.” Proverbs 15:28-29.

Jesus alone saves us in the battle
between truth and error, between
christ and self!
[“Self” removes all the beauty of the character of
Jesus, everything beautiful in us. “Self” is horrible, “self”
is nasty; “self” is not beautiful. When the holy spirit makes
me discover “self” in me, I say, “Lord, how ugly I am!
Whereas, I want to be beautiful like you, Jesus. Jesus, I
pray thee, remove this “self” so I can be as beautiful as
you!”
JB: You know that Jones or Waggoner said that “self”
is worse than satan.
Of course, it is satan himself, because “self” finds his
character in us. “Self” is the person of satan; it is satan’s
character, and that is what does the conflicts. It is
what creates the battle between truth and error.
Sometimes this conflict happens in our person, in our heart;
this is why Jesus said, “When satan comes, this people of
God who will have vanquished “self” will be able to say,
‘Satan comes, and he has nothing in me. There is no longer
anything from you in me. I am pure; I am like Jesus, and
the father sees his son in me.’” . . . Very often I say in
myself, “Lord, it is good to be a part of a church.” As ‘the
spirit of prophecy’ says, “the walls do not save; the
assemblies do not save. It is Jesus only who saves,” in order
for the sun of grace to shine over us every day.” Dreams and
Visions 79:5:18-20.]

Every defect of our character must be
overcome by the sanctification of
christ abiding within!
[We are living amid the perils of the last days, and we
should guard every avenue by which satan can approach us
with his temptations. A fatal delusion seizes those who
have had great light and precious opportunities, but who
have not walked in the light nor improved the opportunities
which God has given them. Darkness comes upon them;

Man's desperately wicked heart! — Page 5 of 8

and they fail to make christ their strength, and fall
an easy prey to the snares of the deceiver. A mere assent to
the truth will never save a soul from death. We must be
sanctified through the truth; every defect of
character must be overcome, or it will overcome us
and become a controlling power for evil.

No way is provided for anyone to be
saved in one sin! God requires perfect
harmony with sinless heaven!
Cultivate whatever in your character is in harmony with
the character of christ. Cherish those things that are true,
honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report; but put
away whatever is unlike our redeemer. Selfishness is cherished to an extent that few realize; guard against
it at all times and in all places. Do not excuse yourself
in any error. If you have one objectionable trait, which
you find it difficult to subdue, do not talk of your weakness
as something that others must bear with. Do not soothe
your conscience with the thought that you cannot overcome
the peculiarities that deform your character, nor listen to
satan's suggestion that they are not very grievous. There
is no way by which you may be saved in sin.
Every soul that gains eternal life must be like christ, "holy,
harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners." [Hebrews
7:26.] The followers of christ must shine as lights in the
midst of a crooked and perverse generation.

God orders test after test to prove us
to show us the evil in our characters
so that we may confess our sins and
forsake them!
Some seek to control their surroundings, thinking that
if they are placed in favorable positions, the bad traits in
their character will not be developed. But God orders
our surroundings, and he will place us where we shall
have test after test, to prove us and to reveal what is in our
hearts. Again and again we shall be brought into strait
places, that it may be known whether we are indeed crucified with christ or full of self-love. How will this testing
process end with each of us? The prince of darkness will
put forth all his power to retain us in his possession; but we
have a mighty helper.

Self-love deceives us and makes us
fools to believe that we are not
desperately wicked!
Self-love will prompt to a much better opinion of self
than the word of God will warrant; for "the heart is
deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who
can know it?" [Jeremiah 17:9.] God's word is the standard
that we must all reach. It is unsafe to consult feeling or to
trust to our own heart; the wise man declares, "He that
trusteth in his own heart is a fool." [Proverbs 28:26.]

Abiding in christ daily make every
effort to advance using divine aid for
help and strength!
Church membership will not guarantee us heaven. We
must abide in christ, and his love must abide in
us. We must every day make advancement in
the formation of symmetrical character. "Be ye
therefore perfect, even as your father which is in
heaven is perfect." [Matthew 5:48.] As God is perfect in his
sphere, so are we required to be perfect in ours. There is a
great work before us individually, to reach this high standard. Our attainments will be just in accordance
with the effort we make, our character just what we
choose to make it; for through the divine aid promised us, we can overcome. Jesus "knoweth our frame; he
remembereth that we are dust." [Psalm 103:14.] In pitying
tenderness he will give us the help and strength
we need.

Weed out self-esteem, scandals, and
rumors, but cultivate love of others,
meekness, and lowliness of heart!
Let us diligently cultivate the pure principles of
the gospel of christ, – the religion, not of self-esteem, but of love, meekness, and lowliness of
heart. Then we shall love our brethren, and esteem
them better than ourselves. Our minds will not
dwell on the dark side of their character; we shall not
feast on scandal and flying reports. But "whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any
praise," we shall "think on these things." Philippians 4:8.
Gospel Workers, pages 445-446.]

Fitted for Translation
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the
world, and this is the victory that overcometh the
world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4.

Jesus leads us to confront everything
in us that opposes God to show us
what in our hearts shuts out Jesus.
Those who overcome by sacrificing
their idols and heeding the counsels
they don’t want to heed are fitted for
heaven!
God leads his people on, step by step. He brings
them up to different points calculated to manifest what is in the heart. Some endure at one point,
but fall off at the next. At every advanced point the heart is
tested and tried a little closer. If the professed people
of God find their hearts opposed to this
straight work, it should convince them that
they have a work to do to overcome, if they

Man's desperately wicked heart! — Page 6 of 8

would not be spewed out of the mouth of the
Lord. Said the angel: "God will bring his work closer and
closer to test and prove every one of his people." Some are
willing to receive one point; but when God brings them to
another testing point, they shrink from it and stand back,
because they find that it strikes directly at some cherished
idol. Here they have opportunity to see what is
in their hearts that shuts out Jesus. They prize
something higher than the truth, and their hearts are not
prepared to receive Jesus. Individuals are tested and proved
a length of time to see if they will sacrifice their
idols and heed the counsel of the true witness.
. . . Those who come up to every point, and stand every test,
and overcome, be the price what it may, have
heeded the counsel of the true witness, and they will receive the latter rain, and thus be fitted for translation.

Behold the selfishness, covetousness,
pride, and evil passions in your mind!
Inspired divine truth alone makes
one noble-hearted, generous, and full
of good works!
God proves his people in this world. This is the
fitting-up place to appear in his presence. Here, in this
world, in these last days, persons will show what
power affects their hearts and controls their
actions. If it is the power of divine truth, it will lead to
good works. It will elevate the receiver, and make him
noble-hearted and generous, like his divine Lord. But if
evil angels control the heart, it will be seen in
various ways. The fruit will be selfishness, covetousness, pride, and evil passions.

Many falsely think that salvation is
by profession of faith or knowledge
of truth, but salvation from sin
requires repentance from sin!
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately
wicked. Professors of religion are not willing to closely
examine themselves to see whether they are in the
faith; and it is a fearful fact that many are leaning on a false
hope. . . . They seem to think that a profession of
the truth will save them. When they subdue
those sins which God hates, Jesus will come in
and sup with them and they with him. They will
then draw divine strength from Jesus, and will grow up in
him, and be able with holy triumph to say: "Thanks be
to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord
Jesus Christ." (Testimonies, vol. 1, pp. 187, 188).

At every step in life the evil of our
desperately wicked hearts is revealed
in order to prompt us to repent!
The third angel is leading up a people, step by step,
higher and higher. At every step they will be tested
(ibid., p. 190). Lift Him Up, page 375.]

Satan us creating circumstances to
tempt Israel to disobey God!
[Men do not know their own hearts; for "the heart is
deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked."
Jeremiah 17:9. But God understands the tendencies of the depraved nature of man. Then, as now, satan was watching to
bring about conditions favorable to rebellion, that the
people of Israel might make themselves as abhorrent to God
as were the Canaanites. The adversary of souls is ever on
the alert to open channels for the unrestrained flow of evil
in us; for he desires that we may be ruined, and be condemned before God. Patriarchs and Prophets, page 688.]

The duty to keep God’s commandments cannot be attained by reaching
the highest human standard of character because man’s highest standard
is desperately wicked!
[The commandments of God are comprehensive
and far reaching; in a few words they unfold the whole
duty of man. "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
mind, and with all thy strength. . . . Thou shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself." (Mark 12:30, 31). In these words the
length and breadth, the depth and height, of the law of God
is comprehended; for Paul declares, "Love is the fulfilling
of the law." (Romans 13:10). The only definition we find in
the Bible for sin is that "sin is the transgression of the
law." (1 John 3:4). The word of God declares, "All have
sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans
3:23). "There is none that doeth good, no, not one."
(Romans 3: 12). Many are deceived concerning the condition
of their hearts. They do not realize that the natural
heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. They wrap themselves about
with their own righteousness, and are satisfied
in reaching their own human standard of
character; but how fatally they fail when they do
not reach the divine standard, and of themselves they cannot meet the requirements of
God.

Because everyone on earth is
desperately wicked, it is only by
looking to Jesus as the divine
standard for harmony with heaven!
We may measure ourselves by ourselves, we may compare ourselves among ourselves, we may say we do as well
as this one or that one, but the question to which the judgment will call for an answer is, Do we meet the claims
of high heaven? Do we reach the divine standard? Are our hearts in harmony with the God of
heaven?

Man's desperately wicked heart! — Page 7 of 8

No christian or non-christian has
strength to do anything good; all is
hopeless without Jesus reigning in
the heart to give unto us repentance
and sanctification!
The human family have all transgressed the law
of God, and as transgressors of the law, man is hopelessly ruined; for he is the enemy of God, without
strength to do any good thing. "The carnal mind
is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of

The Church of Philadelphia

God, neither indeed can be." (Romans 8:7). Looking into
the moral mirror--God's holy law--man sees himself a
sinner, and is convicted of his state of evil, his
hopeless doom under the just penalty of the law. But he
has not been left in a state of hopeless distress in which sin
has plunged him; for it was to save the transgressor from
ruin that he who was equal with God offered up his life on
Calvary. "God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16). 1 Selected
Messages, pages 320, 321.]

"The Time of Trouble."

Part One

The Great Controversy (1888), Chapter 39. - pages 613-634. By E.G. White

Good news:
God’s people about to be
delivered from sin and its
wages, the wrath of God!
"At that time shall Michael stand up, the great
prince which standeth for the children of thy people;
and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never
was since there was a nation even to that same time;
and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."
[Daniel 12:1.]

Atonement, sealing, latter rain, and
“it is done” completed!
When the third angel's message closes, mercy no
longer pleads for the guilty inhabitants of the earth.
The people of God have accomplished their work.
They have received "the latter rain," "the refreshing from the presence of the Lord," and
they are prepared for the trying hour before them.
Angels are hastening to and fro in heaven. An angel
returning from the earth announces that his work is
done; the final test has been brought upon the world,
and all who have proved themselves loyal to the divine
precepts have received "the seal of the living
God." Then Jesus ceases his intercession in the
sanctuary above. He lifts his hands, and with a loud
voice says, "It is done;" and all the angelic host lay
off their crowns as he makes the solemn announcement: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and
he which is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that
is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that
is holy, let him be holy still." [Revelation 22:11.] Every
case has been decided for life or death. Christ has
made the atonement for his people, and
blotted out their sins. The number of his subjects
is made up; "the kingdom and dominion, and the
greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven,"
is about to be given to the heirs of salvation, and Jesus
is to reign as king of kings, and lord of lords.

When he leaves the sanctuary, darkness covers
the inhabitants of the earth. In that fearful time
the righteous must live in the sight of a holy God
without an intercessor. The restraint which has
been upon the wicked is removed, and satan has
entire control of the finally impenitent.
God's long-suffering has ended. The world has rejected
his mercy, despised his love, and trampled upon his
law. The wicked have passed the boundary of their
probation; the spirit of God, persistently resisted, has
been at last withdrawn. Unsheltered by divine
grace, they have no protection from the wicked one.
Satan will then plunge the inhabitants of the earth into
one great, final trouble. As the angels of God cease
to hold in check the fierce winds of human passion, all
the elements of strife will be let loose. The whole
world will be involved in ruin more terrible than that
which came upon Jerusalem of old.

The wrath of God is coming!
A single angel destroyed all the first-born of the
Egyptians, and filled the land with mourning. When
David offended against God by numbering the people,
one angel caused that terrible destruction by which
his sin was punished. The same destructive power
exercised by holy angels when God commands,
will be exercised by evil angels when he permits.
There are forces now ready, and only waiting the divine permission, to spread desolation everywhere.

“A great and mighty army advances
like dawn spreading across the
mountains. Never has the world
seen anything like it before!” Joel 2:2
The Voice Bible presentation.

Those who honor the law of God have been
accused of bringing judgments upon the world, and
they will be regarded as the cause of the fearful
convulsions of nature and the strife and bloodshed
among men that are filling the earth with woe. The
POWER attending the last warning has enraged the
wicked; their anger is kindled against all who have
received the message, and satan will excite to still
greater intensity the spirit of hatred and persecution.

In the darkness without an
intercessor!

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 1 of 11

“The time cometh, that whosoever
killeth you will think that he
doeth God service.” John 16:2.
When God's presence was finally withdrawn from
the Jewish nation, priests and people knew it not.
Though under the control of satan, and swayed by the
most horrible and malignant passions, they
still regarded themselves as the chosen of God. The
ministration in the temple continued; sacrifices were
offered upon its polluted altars, and daily the divine
blessing was invoked upon a people guilty of the blood
of God's dear son, and seeking to slay his ministers and apostles. So when the irrevocable decision of the sanctuary has been pronounced, and the
destiny of the world has been forever fixed, the inhabitants of the earth will know it not. The forms of religion will be continued by a people from whom the
spirit of God has been finally withdrawn;
and the satanic zeal with which the prince of evil will
inspire them for the accomplishment of his malignant
designs, will bear the semblance of zeal for
God.

“Fear God and give glory to him. . .
having the everlasting gospel. . .
Saints. . . keep the commandments
of God and the faith of Jesus!”
Revelation 14:7, 6, 12.

As the Sabbath has become the special point of
controversy throughout christendom, and religious and
secular authorities have combined to enforce the observance of the Sunday, the persistent refusal of a
small minority to yield to the popular demand, will
make them objects of universal execration [abhorrence, condemnation]. It will be urged that the few
who stand in opposition to an institution of the church
and a law of the state, ought not to be tolerated; that it
is better for them to suffer than for whole nations to be
thrown into confusion and lawlessness. The same argument eighteen hundred years ago was brought against
christ by the "rulers of the people." "It is expedient
for us," said the wily Caiaphas, "that one man should
die for the people, and that the whole nation perish
not." [John 11:50.] This argument will appear conclusive; and a decree will finally be issued against those
who hallow the Sabbath of the fourth commandment,
denouncing them as deserving of the severest punishment, and giving the people liberty, after a certain
time, to put them to death. Romanism in the old
world, and apostate Protestantism in the new, will

pursue a similar course toward those who honor all the
divine precepts.

“For then shall be great tribulation,
such as was not since the beginning
of the world to this time.” Matthew 24:21.
The people of God will then be plunged into those
scenes of affliction and distress described by the
prophet as the time of Jacob's trouble. "Thus saith
the Lord: We have heard a voice of trembling, of
fear, and not of peace." "All faces are turned into
paleness. Alas! For that day is great, so that none is
like it; it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he
shall be saved out of it." [Jeremiah 30:5-7.]

Pray and place yourselves in a proper
light to disarm prejudice!
Jacob's night of anguish, when he wrestled in
prayer for deliverance from the hand of Esau,
[Genesis 32:24-30.] represents the experience of God's
people in the time of trouble. Because of the
deception practiced to secure his father's blessing,
intended for Esau, Jacob had fled for his life, alarmed
by his brother's deadly threats. After remaining for
many years an exile, he had set out, at God's
command, to return with his wives and children, his
flocks and herds, to his native country. On reaching the
borders of the land, he was filled with terror by the
tidings of Esau's approach at the head of a band of
warriors, doubtless bent upon revenge. Jacob's company, unarmed and defenseless, seemed about to
fall helpless victims of violence and slaughter.
And to the burden of anxiety and fear was added the
crushing weight of self-reproach; for it was his own
sin that had brought this danger. His only hope
was in the mercy of God; his only defense
must be prayer. Yet he leaves nothing undone on
his own part to atone for the wrong to his brother, and
to avert the threatened danger. So should the followers
of christ, as they approach the time of trouble, make
every exertion to place themselves in a
proper light before the people, to disarm
prejudice, and to avert the danger which
threatens liberty of conscience.

In the coming struggle, everything is
at stake; we must have the assurance that our sins are pardoned!
Having sent his family away, that they may not witness his distress, Jacob remains alone to intercede with

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 2 of 11

God. He confesses his sin, and gratefully
acknowledges the mercy of God toward
him, while with deep humiliation he pleads the
covenant made with his fathers, and the
promises to himself in the night vision at Bethel and in
the land of his exile. The crisis in his life has come;
everything is at stake. In the darkness and solitude he continues praying and humbling himself
before God. Suddenly a hand is laid upon his shoulder.
He thinks that an enemy is seeking his life, and with all
the energy of despair he wrestles with his assailant. As
the day begins to break, the stranger puts forth his
superhuman power; at his touch the strong man seems
paralyzed, and he falls, a helpless, weeping suppliant,
upon the neck of his mysterious antagonist. Jacob
knows now that it is the angel of the covenant
with whom he has been in conflict. Though disabled,
and suffering the keenest pain, he does not relinquish
his purpose. Long has he endured perplexity, remorse,
and trouble for his sin; now he must have the
assurance that it is pardoned. The divine visitant seems about to depart; but Jacob clings to him,
pleading for a blessing. The angel urges,"Let me go;
for the day breaketh;" but the patriarch exclaims, "I
will not let thee go, except thou bless me."
What confidence, what firmness and perseverance, are here displayed! Had this been a boastful,
presumptuous claim, Jacob would have been instantly
destroyed; but his was the assurance of one who
confesses his weakness and unworthiness,
yet trusts the mercy of a covenant-keeping
God.

Sinful, erring mortals can prevail
with God through humiliation,
repentance, and self-surrender!
"He had power over the angel, and prevailed."
[Hosea 12:4.] Through humiliation, repentance,

and self-surrender, this sinful, erring mortal prevailed with the majesty of heaven. He
had fastened his trembling grasp upon the promises of
God, and the heart of infinite love could not turn away
the sinner's plea. As an evidence of his triumph, and an
encouragement to others to imitate his example,
his name was changed from one which was a reminder
of his sin, to one that commemorated his victory.
And the fact that Jacob had prevailed with God was an
assurance that he would prevail with men. He no
longer feared to encounter his brother's anger; for the
Lord was his defense.

Urge your petition to God until you
prevail!
Satan had accused Jacob before the angels of God,
claiming the right to destroy him because of his sin; he
had moved upon Esau to march against him; and during the patriarch's long night of wrestling, satan endeavored to force upon him a sense of his guilt, in
order to discourage him, and break his
hold upon God. Jacob was driven almost to despair; but he knew that without help from heaven he
must perish. He had sincerely repented of his
great sin, and he appealed to the mercy of
God. He would not be turned from his purpose, but
held fast the angel, and urged his petition with
earnest, agonizing cries, until he prevailed.

Satan accuses the people of God of
their sins in order to destroy them!
As satan influenced Esau to march against Jacob,
so he will stir up the wicked to destroy God's people in
the time of trouble. And as he accused Jacob, he
will urge his accusations against the people
of God. He numbers the world as his subjects; but the
little company who keep the commandments of
God are resisting his supremacy. If he could blot them
from the earth, his triumph would be complete. He
sees that holy angels are guarding them, and he infers
that their sins have been pardoned; but he does not
know that their cases have been decided in the sanctuary above. He has an accurate knowledge of the sins
which he has tempted them to commit, and he presents
these before God in the most exaggerated light, representing this people to be just as deserving as himself of
exclusion from the favor of God. He declares that the
Lord cannot in justice forgive their sins, and yet
destroy him and his angels. He claims them as his
prey, and demands that they be given into
his hands to destroy.

Jesus permits the trial of accusations
against us, even though weak and
unworthy!
As satan accuses the people of God on account of
their sins, the Lord permits him to try them
to the uttermost. Their confidence in God, their
faith and firmness, will be severely tested. As they
review the past, their hopes sink; for in their whole
lives they can see little good. They are fully conscious
of their weakness and unworthiness. Satan
endeavors to terrify them with the thought that their

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 3 of 11

cases are hopeless, that the stain of their defilement
will never be washed away. He hopes to so destroy their faith that they will yield to his temptations, and turn from their allegiance to God.

While satan is accusing, God’s people
fear that every sin has not been
repented of!
Though God's people will be surrounded by enemies who are bent upon their destruction, yet the
anguish which they suffer is not a dread of persecution
for the truth's sake; they fear that every sin has
not been repented of, and that through some fault
in themselves they shall fail to realize the fulfillment
of the savior’s promise, "I will keep thee from the
hour of temptation which shall come upon all the
world." [Revelation 3:10.] If they could have the assurance of pardon, they would not shrink from torture or
death; but should they prove unworthy, and lose their
lives because of their own defects of character, then
God's holy name would be reproached.

The treason of the Remnant Church
cannot be stopped by God’s people!
On every hand they hear the plottings of
treason, and see the active working of rebellion; and
there is aroused within them an intense desire, an
earnest yearning of soul, that this great apostasy may
be terminated, and the wickedness of the wicked may
come to an end. But while they plead with God
to stay the work of rebellion, it is with a keen
sense of self-reproach that they themselves have
no more power to resist and urge back the
mighty tide of evil. They feel that had they always
employed all their ability in the service of christ, going
forward from strength to strength, satan’s forces would
have less power to prevail against them.

God’s people plead with keenest
anxiety, terror, and distress, for
God’s blessing!
They afflict their souls before God, pointing to
their past repentance of their many sins,
and pleading the savior’s promise, "Let him take
hold of my strength, that he may make peace with
me; and he shall make peace with me." [Isaiah 27:5.]
Their faith does not fail because their prayers are not
immediately answered. Though suffering the keenest anxiety, terror, and distress, they do not
cease their intercessions. They lay hold of the strength

of God as Jacob laid hold of the angel; and the language of their souls is, "I will not let thee go,
except thou bless me."

Unrepented sins cut off our faith!
Had not Jacob previously repented of his
sin in obtaining the birthright by fraud, God would not
have heard his prayer and mercifully preserved his life.
So, in the time of trouble, if the people of God
had unconfessed sins to appear before them while tortured with fear and anguish, they would be overwhelmed; despair would cut off their faith,
and they could not have confidence to plead with God
for deliverance. 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.

Everyone unrepentant, unconfessed,
is unforgiven and will be overcome!
Satan leads many to believe that God will overlook
their unfaithfulness in the minor affairs of life; but the
Lord shows in his dealings with Jacob that he will in
nowise sanction or tolerate evil. All who
endeavor to excuse or conceal their sins, and permit
them to remain upon the books of heaven, unconfessed and unforgiven, will be overcome by
satan. The more exalted their profession, and the
more honorable the position which they hold, the more
grievous is their course in the sight of God, and the
more sure the triumph of their great adversary. Those
who delay a preparation for the day of God cannot
obtain it in the time of trouble, or at any subsequent time. The case of all such is hopeless.

The lost Remnants lament the result
of sin, but not its guilt, not abhorring evil and without contrition!
Those professed christians who come up to that
last fearful conflict unprepared, will, in their despair,
confess their sins in words of burning, anguish, while
the wicked exult over their distress. These confessions
are of the same character as was that of Esau or of
Judas. Those who make them lament the result of
transgression, but not its guilt. They feel no true
contrition, no abhorrence of evil. They acknowledge their sin, through fear of punishment; but,
like Pharaoh of old, they would return to their defiance

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 4 of 11

of heaven, should the judgments be removed.

the promises of God.

God’s people are greatly afflicted!

Make it a habit to exercise faith now
to avoid future distress, anguish,
and discouragement!

Jacob's history is also an assurance that God will
not cast off those who have been deceived, and tempted, and betrayed into sin, but who have returned
unto him with true repentance. While satan
seeks to destroy this class, God will send his angels to
comfort and protect them in the time of peril. The
assaults of satan are fierce and determined, his delusions are terrible; but the Lord's eye is upon his people,
and his ear listens to their cries. Their affliction is
great, the flames of the furnace seem about to consume them; but the refiner will bring them forth as
gold tried in the fire. God's love for his children during
the period of their severest trial is as strong and tender
as in the days of their sunniest prosperity; but it is
needful for them to be placed in the furnace fire;
their earthliness must be consumed that
the image of christ may be perfectly reflected.

With unyielding faith be determined
to persevere in agonizingly earnest
importunate prayer, wrestling
with God for the victory!
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. The period of probation is granted to all
to prepare for that time. Jacob prevailed because
he was persevering and determined. His
victory is an evidence of the power of importunate
prayer. All who will lay hold of God's promises, as he did, and be as earnest and persevering as he was, will succeed as he succeeded. Those
who are unwilling to deny self, to agonize before
God, to pray long and earnestly for his
blessing, will not obtain it. Wrestling with God--how
few know what it is! How few have ever had their
souls drawn out after God with intensity of desire until
every power is on the stretch. When waves of despair which no language can express sweep over the
suppliant, how few cling with unyielding faith to
The Church of Philadelphia

Those who exercise but little faith now, are in
the greatest danger of falling under the power of
satanic delusions and the decree to compel the conscience. And even if they endure the test, they will be
plunged into deeper distress and anguish in the
time of trouble, because they have never made it a
habit to trust in God. The lessons of faith which
they have neglected, they will be forced to learn under
a terrible pressure of discouragement.

Give up all to follow Jesus, earnestly,
sincerely, proving his promises
through prayer!
We should now acquaint ourselves with God by
proving his promises. Angels record every prayer
that is earnest and sincere. We should rather dispense with selfish gratifications than neglect communion with God. The deepest poverty, the greatest
self-denial, with his approval, is better than riches,
honors, ease, and friendship without it. We must take
time to pray. If we allow our minds to be absorbed
by worldly interests, the Lord may give us time by
removing from us our idols of gold, of houses, or of
fertile lands.

Fervently and in faith pray to know
the right path!
The young would not be seduced into sin if they
would refuse to enter any path, save that upon
which they could ask God's blessing. If the messengers
who bear the last solemn warning to the world would
pray for the blessing of God, not in a cold, listless, lazy manner, but fervently and in faith, as
did Jacob, they would find many places where they
could say, "I have seen God face to face, and my life
is preserved." [Genesis 32:30.] They would be accounted
of heaven as princes, having power to prevail with
God and with men.

"The Time of Trouble."

Part Two

The Great Controversy (1888), Chapter XXXIX. - pages 613-634. By E.G. White

Laziness prevents seeking after God
with all the heart!
The "time of trouble such as never was,"
is soon to open upon us; and we shall need an experience which we do not now possess, and which many
are too indolent [lazy slothful] to obtain. It is
often the case that trouble is greater in anticipation
than in reality; but this is not true of the crisis before
us. The most vivid presentation cannot reach the
magnitude of the ordeal. In that time of trial,
every soul must stand for himself before God. Though
Noah, Daniel, and Job were in the land, "as I live, saith
the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor
daughter; they shall but deliver their own
souls by their righteousness." [Ezekiel 14:20.]

No sin must be found in the “saints”
during the time of trouble!
Now, while our great high priest is making the
atonement for us, we should seek to become perfect in christ. Not even by a thought could our
savior be brought to yield to the power of temptation.
Satan finds in human hearts some point where he can
gain a foot-hold; some sinful desire is cherished, by
means of which his temptations assert their power. But
christ declared of himself, "The prince of this
world cometh, and hath nothing in me."
[John 14:30.] Satan could find nothing in the son of God
that would enable him to gain the victory. He had
kept his father's commandments, and there
was no sin in him that Satan could use to his advantage. This is the condition in which those
must be found who shall stand in the time
of trouble.

Through faith in the atoning sacrifice
of christ, separate sin by uniting
our weakness, ignorance, and
unworthiness to christ’s merits!
It is in this life that we are to separate sin from
us, through faith in the atoning blood of
christ. Our precious savior invites us to join ourselves to him, to unite our weakness to his
strength, our ignorance to his wisdom, our
unworthiness to his merits. God's providence
is the school in which we are to learn the meek-

ness and lowliness of Jesus. The Lord is ever
setting before us, not the way we would choose, which
seems easier and pleasanter to us, but the true aims of
life. It rests with us to cooperate with the agencies
which heaven employs, in the work of conforming
our characters to the divine model. None can
neglect or defer this work but at the most fearful peril
to their souls.

Woe to the sinful inhabiters of earth,
for satan brings deceit and
destruction!
The apostle John in vision heard a loud voice in
heaven exclaiming, "Woe to the inhabiters of
the earth and of the sea! for the devil is
come down unto you, having great wrath,
because he knoweth that he hath but a
short time." [Revelation 12:12.] Fearful are the scenes
which call forth this exclamation from the heavenly
voice. The wrath of satan increases as his time grows
short, and his work of deceit and destruction
will reach its culmination in the time of
trouble.

Miracle-working demons join kings
and merchants of the earth to
contradict scriptures!
Fearful sights of a supernatural character will soon
be revealed in the heavens, in token of the power of
miracle-working demons. The spirits of devils
will go forth to the kings of the earth and to
the whole world, to fasten them in deception, and
urge them on to unite with satan in his last
struggle against the government of heaven. By these
agencies, rulers and subjects will be alike deceived. Persons will arise pretending to be christ
himself, and claiming the title and worship which
belong to the world's redeemer. They will perform
wonderful miracles of healing, and will profess to
have revelations from heaven contradicting the testimony of the scriptures.

Satan, the antichrist, will pretend to
be Jesus, and claim to change
Jesus’ fourth commandment from
Sabbath to Sunday!
As the crowning act in the great drama of decep-

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 6 of 11

tion, satan himself will personate christ. The
church has long professed to look to the savior’s advent as the consummation of her hopes. Now the great
deceiver will make it appear that christ has come. In
different parts of the earth, satan will manifest himself
among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness,
resembling the description of the son of God given by
John in the Revelation. [Revelation 1:13-15.] The glory
that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that
mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph
rings out upon the air., "Christ has come! Christ has
come!" The people prostrate themselves in adoration
before him, while he lifts up his hands, and pronounces
a blessing upon them, as christ blessed his disciples
when he was upon the earth. His voice is soft and
subdued, yet full of melody. In gentle, compassionate
tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly
truths which the savior uttered; he heals the diseases of
the people, and then, in his assumed character of christ,
he claims to have changed the Sabbath to
Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which
he has blessed. He declares that those who persist in
keeping holy the seventh day are blaspheming his
name by refusing to listen to his angels sent to them
with light and truth. This is the strong, almost overmastering delusion. Like the Samaritans who were
deceived by Simon Magus, the multitudes, from the
least to the greatest, give heed to these sorceries, saying, This is "the great power of God." [Acts. 8:10.]
But the people of God will not be misled. The
teachings of this false christ are not in accordance with
the scriptures his blessing is pronounced upon the
worshipers of the beast and his image,--the very class
upon whom the Bible declares that God's unmingled
wrath shall be poured out.
And, furthermore, Satan is not permitted to
counterfeit the manner of Christ's advent. The savior
has warned his people against deception upon this
point, and has clearly foretold the manner of his
second coming. "There shall arise false christs, and
false prophets, and shall show great signs and
wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall
deceive the very elect. . . . Wherefore if they shall say
unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:
behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For
as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth
even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the son
of man be." [Matthew 24:24-27, 31, 25:31; Revelation 1:7; 1
Thessalonians 4:16, 17.] This coming, there is no possibility of counterfeiting. It will be universally
known--witnessed by the whole world.

Only those who have been diligent students of the
Scriptures, and who have received the love of the truth,
will be shielded from the powerful delusion that takes
the world captive. By the Bible testimony these will
detect the deceiver in his disguise. To all, the testing
time will come. By the sifting of temptation, the
genuine Christian will be revealed. Are the people of
God now so firmly established upon his word that they
would not yield to the evidence of their senses? Would
they, in such a crisis, cling to the Bible, and the Bible
only? Satan will, if possible, prevent them from
obtaining a preparation to stand in that day. He will so
arrange affairs as to hedge up their way, entangle them
with earthly treasures, cause them to carry a heavy,
wearisome burden, that their hearts may be overcharged with the cares of this life, and the day of
trial may come upon them as a thief.
As the decree issued by the various rulers of
Christendom against commandment-keepers shall
withdraw the protection of government, and abandon
them to those who desire their destruction, the people
of God will flee from the cities and villages, and
associate together in companies, dwelling in the most
desolate and solitary places. Many will find refuge in
the strongholds of the mountains. Like the Christians
of the Piedmont valleys, they will make the high places
of the earth their sanctuaries, and will thank God for
the "munitions of rocks." [Isaiah 33:16.] But many of all
nations, and all classes, high and low, rich and poor,
black and white, will be cast into the most unjust and
cruel bondage. The beloved of God pass weary days,
bound in chains, shut in by prison bars, sentenced to be
slain, some apparently left to die of starvation in dark
and loathsome dungeons. No human ear is open to hear
their moans; no human hand is ready to lend them
help.
Will the Lord forget his people in this trying hour?
Did he forget faithful Noah when judgments were
visited upon the antediluvian world? Did he forget Lot
when the fire came down from Heaven to consume the
cities of the plain? Did he forget Joseph surrounded by
idolaters in Egypt? Did he forget Elijah when the oath
of Jezebel threatened him with the fate of the prophets
of Baal? Did he forget Jeremiah in the dark and dismal
pit of his prison-house? Did he forget the three
worthies in the fiery furnace? or Daniel in the den of
lions.?
"Zion said, Jehovah hath forsaken me, and my
Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her
sucking child, that she should not have compassion on
the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I
not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 7 of 11

palms of my hands." [Isaiah 49:14-16.] The Lord of hosts
has said, "He that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of
his eye." [Zechariah 2:8.]
Though enemies may thrust them into prison, yet
dungeon walls cannot cut off the communication
between their souls and Christ. One who sees their
every weakness, who is acquainted with every trial, is
above all earthly powers; and angels will come to them
in lonely cells, bringing light and peace from Heaven.
The prison will be as a palace; for the rich in faith
dwell there, and the gloomy walls will be lighted up
with heavenly light, as when Paul and Silas prayed and
sung praises at midnight in the Philippian dungeon.
God's judgments will be visited upon those who
are seeking to oppress and destroy his people. His long
forbearance with the wicked emboldens men in
transgression, but their punishment is none the less
certain and terrible because it is long delayed. "The
Lord shall rise up as in Mount Perazim, he shall be
wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his
work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his
strange act." [Isaiah 28:21.] To our merciful God the act
of punishment is a strange act. "As I live, saith the
Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the
wicked," [Ezekiel 33:11.] The Lord is "merciful and
gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and
truth," "forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin."
Yet he will "by no means clear the guilty." "The Lord
is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all
acquit the wicked." [Exodus 34:6, 7; Nahum 1:3.] By terrible
things in righteousness he will vindicate the authority
of his downtrodden law. The severity of the retribution
awaiting the transgressor may be judged by the Lord's
reluctance to execute justice. The nation with which he
bears long, and which he will not smite until it has
filled up the measure of its iniquity in God's account,
will finally drink the cup of wrath unmixed with
mercy.
When Christ ceases his intercession in the
sanctuary, the unmingled wrath threatened against
those who worship the beast and his image and receive
his mark, [Revelation 14:9, 10.] will be poured out. The
plagues upon Egypt when God was about to deliver
Israel, were similar in character to those more terrible
and extensive judgments which are to fall upon the
world just before the final deliverance of God's people.
Says the Revelator, in describing these terrific
scourges, "There fell a noisome and grievous sore
upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and
upon them which worshiped his image." The sea
"became as the blood of a dead man, and every living
soul died in the sea." And "the rivers and fountains of

waters became blood." [Revelation 16:2-6, 8, 9.] Terrible as
these inflictions are, God's justice stands fully
vindicated. The angel of God declares, "Thou art
righteous, O Lord, . . . because thou hast judged thus.
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,
and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are
worthy. [Revelation 16:2-6, 8, 9.] By condemning the
people of God to death they have as truly incurred the
guilt of their blood, as if it had been shed by their
hands. In like manner Christ declared the Jews of his
time guilty of all the blood of holy men which had
been shed since the days of Abel; for they possessed
the same spirit, and were seeking to do the same work,
with these murderers of the prophets.
In the plague that follows, power is given to the
sun "to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched
with great heat." [Revelation 16:2-6, 8, 9.] The prophets
thus describe the condition of the earth at this fearful
time: "The land mourneth;. . . because the harvest of
the field is perished." "All the trees of the field are
withered; because joy is withered away from the sons
of men." "The seed is rotten under their clods, the
garners are laid desolate." "How do the beasts groan!
the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no
pasture. . . . The rivers of waters are dried up, and the
fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness."
"The songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day,
saith the Lord God; there shall be many dead bodies in
every place; they shall cast them forth with silence."
[Joel 1:10-12, 17-20; AMOS 8:3.]
These plagues are not universal, or the inhabitants
of the earth would be wholly cut off. Yet they will be
the most awful scourges that have ever been known to
mortals. All the judgments upon men, prior to the close
of probation, have been mingled with mercy. The
pleading blood of Christ has shielded the sinner from
receiving the full measure of his guilt; but in the final
Judgment, wrath is poured out unmixed with mercy.
In that day, multitudes will desire the shelter of
God's mercy which they have so long despised.
"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will
send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a
thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.
And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the
north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek
the word of the Lord, and shall not find it." [Amos 8:11,
12.]
The people of God will not be free from suffering;
but while persecuted and distressed, while they endure
privation, and suffer for want of food, they will not be
left to perish. That God who cared for Elijah will not
pass by one of his self-sacrificing children. He who

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 8 of 11

numbers the hairs of their head will care for them, and
in time of famine they shall be satisfied. While the
wicked are dying from hunger and pestilence, angels
will shield the righteous, and supply their wants. To
him that "walketh righteously" is the promise, "Bread
shall be given him; his waters shall be sure." "When
the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and
their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them,
I the God of Israel will not forsake them." [Isaiah 33:16;
41:17.]
"Although the fig-tree shall not blossom, neither
shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall
fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall
be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in
the stalls;" yet shall they that fear him "rejoice in the
Lord," and joy in the God of their salvation. [Habakkuk
3:17, 18.]
"The Lord is thy keeper; the Lord is thy shade upon
thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor
the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from
all evil; he shall preserve thy soul." "He shall deliver
thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the
noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his
feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust; his truth
shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be
afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that
flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in
darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at
noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten
thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh
thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see
the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the
Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy
habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall
any plague come nigh thy dwelling." [Psalm 121:5-7;
91:3-10.]
Yet to human sight it will appear that the people of
God must soon seal their testimony with their blood, as
did the martyrs before them. They themselves begin to
fear that the Lord has left them to fall by the hand of
their enemies. It is a time of fearful agony. Day and
night they cry unto God for deliverance. The wicked
exult, and the jeering cry is heard. "Where now is your
faith? Why does not God deliver you out of our hands
if you are indeed his people?" But the waiting ones
remember Jesus dying upon Calvary's cross, and the
chief priests and rulers shouting in mockery, "He saved
others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of
Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we
will believe him." [Matthew 27:42.] Like Jacob, all are
wrestling with God. Their countenances express their
internal struggle. Paleness sits upon every face. Yet

they cease not their earnest intercession.
Could men see with heavenly vision, they would
behold companies of angels that excel in strength
stationed about those who have kept the word of
Christ's patience. With sympathizing tenderness,
angels have witnessed their distress, and have heard
their prayers. They are waiting the word of their
Commander to snatch them from their peril. But they
must wait yet a little longer. The people of God must
drink of the cup, and be baptized with the baptism. The
very delay, so painful to them, is the best answer to
their petitions. As they endeavor to wait trustingly for
the Lord to work, they are led to exercise faith, hope,
and patience, which have been too little exercised
during their religious experience. Yet for the elect's
sake, the time of trouble will be shortened. "Shall not
God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night
unto him? . . . I tell you that he will avenge them
speedily." [Luke 18:7, 8.] The end will come more
quickly than men expect. The wheat will be gathered
and bound in sheaves for the garner of God; the tares
will be bound as fagots for the fires of destruction.
The heavenly sentinels, faithful to their trust,
continue their watch. Though a general decree has
fixed the time when commandment-keepers may be
put to death, their enemies will in some cases
anticipate the decree, and, before the time specified,
will endeavor to take their lives. But none can pass the
mighty guardians stationed about every faithful soul.
Some are assailed in their flight from the cities and
villages; but the swords raised against them break and
fall as powerless as a straw. Others are defended by
angels in the form of men of war.
In all ages, God has wrought through holy angels
for the succor and deliverance of his people. Celestial
beings have taken an active part in the affairs of men.
They have appeared clothed in garments that shone as
the lightning; they have come as men, in the garb of
wayfarers. Angels have appeared in human form to
men of God. They have rested, as if weary, under the
oaks at noon. They have accepted the hospitalities of
human homes. They have acted as guides to benighted
travelers. They have, with their own hands, kindled the
fires of the altar. They have opened prison doors, and
set free the servants of the Lord. Clothed with the
panoply of Heaven, they came to roll away the stone
from the savior’s tomb.
In the form of men, angels are often in the
assemblies of the righteous, and they visit the
assemblies of the wicked, as they went to Sodom, to
make a record of their deeds, to determine whether
they have passed the boundary of God's forbearance.

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 9 of 11

The Lord delights in mercy; and for the sake of a few
who really serve him, he restrains calamities, and
prolongs the tranquillity of multitudes. Little do
sinners against God realize that they are indebted for
their own lives to the faithful few whom they delight
to ridicule and oppress.
Though the rulers of this world know it not, yet
often in their councils angels have been spokesmen.
Human eyes have looked upon them; human ears have
listened to their appeals; human lips have opposed
their suggestions and ridiculed their counsels; human
hands have met them with insult and abuse. In the
council hall and the court of justice, these heavenly
messengers have shown an intimate acquaintance with
human history; they have proved themselves better
able to plead the cause of the oppressed than were their
ablest and most eloquent defenders. They have
defeated purposes and arrested evils that would have
greatly retarded the work of God, and would have
caused great suffering to his people. In the hour of
peril and distress, "the angel of the Lord encampeth
round about them that fear him, and delivereth them."
[Psalm 34:7.]
With earnest longing, God's people await the
tokens of their coming King. As the watchmen are
accosted, "What of the night?" the answer is given
unfalteringly, "'The morning cometh, and also the
night.' [Isaiah 21:11, 12.] Light is gleaming upon the
clouds above the mountain tops. Soon there will be a
revealing of His glory. The Sun of Righteousness is
about to shine forth. The morning and the night are
both at hand,--the opening of endless day to the
righteous, the settling down of eternal night to the
wicked."
As the wrestling ones urge their petitions before
God, the veil separating them from the unseen seems
almost withdrawn. The heavens glow with the dawning
of eternal day, and, like the melody of angel songs, the
words fall upon the ear, "Stand fast to your allegiance.
Help is coming." Christ, the almighty victor, holds out
to his weary soldiers a crown of immortal glory; and
his voice comes from the gates ajar: "Lo, I am with
you. Be not afraid. I am acquainted with all your
sorrows; I have borne your griefs. You are not warring
against untried enemies. I have fought the battle in
your behalf, and in my name you are more than
conquerors."
The precious savior will send help just when we
need it. The way to Heaven is consecrated by his
foot-prints. Every thorn that wounds our feet has
wounded his. Every cross that we are called to bear, he
has borne before us. The Lord permits conflicts, to

prepare the soul for peace. The time of trouble is a
fearful ordeal for God's people; but it is the time for
every true believer to look up, and by faith he may see
the bow of promise encircling him.
"The redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come
with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be
upon their head; they shall obtain gladness and joy;
and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. I, even I, am
he that comforteth you; who art thou, that thou
shouldst be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the
son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the Lord thy maker; . . . and hast feared
continually every day because of the fury of the
oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is
the fury of the oppressor? The captive exile hasteneth
that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the
pit, nor that his bread should fail. But I am the Lord thy
God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared. The
Lord of hosts is his name. And I have put my words in
thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of
mine hand."
"Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and
drunken, but not with wine: Thus saith thy Lord
Jehovah, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his
people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup
of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury;
thou shalt no more drink it again. But I will put it into
the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to
thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over; and thou
hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to
them that went over." [Isaiah 51:11-16, 21-23.]
The eye of God, looking down the ages, was fixed
upon the crisis which his people are to meet, when
earthly powers shall be arrayed against them. Like the
captive exile, they will be in fear of death by starvation
or by violence. But the Holy One who divided the Red
Sea before Israel, will manifest his mighty power and
turn their captivity. "They shall be mine, saith the Lord
of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I
will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that
serveth him." [Malachi 3:17.] If the blood of Christ's
faithful witnesses were shed at this time, it would not,
like the blood of the martyrs, be as seed sown to yield
a harvest for God. Their fidelity would not be a testimony to convince others of the truth; for the obdurate
heart has beaten back the waves of mercy until they
return no more. If the righteous were now left to fall a
prey to their enemies it would be a triumph for the
prince of darkness. Says the psalmist, "In the time of
trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion; in the secret of
his tabernacle shall he hide me." [Psalm 27:5.] Christ has
spoken: "Come, my people, enter thou into thy cham-

"The Time of Trouble" — Page 10 of 11

bers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself as it
were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to
punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity."

Glorious will be the deliverance of
those who have patiently waited for his coming, and
whose names are written in the book of life.
[Isaiah 26:20, 21.]

Tremble, nations without decency, for the death knell of
sinful humanity has sounded for you. See D&V 334:5:6

The death knell:
“The wages of sin is death!” Romans 6:23.
“Saints. . . keep the commandments of God AND the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:12.

Message of the fifth trumpet:
We are at the time of the fifth and sixth trumpet. D&V 260:3:17.
The six trumpets have resounded in heaven. Some were of our epoch, and others were not. D&V 259:1:7.
The Remnant Church has received the message of the fifth trumpet.
Comes now the

message of the fifth trumpet for the world.

The word of God says this about the fifth trumpet: “And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw
a star fall from heaven unto the earth, and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he
opened the bottomless pit, and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun
and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon
the earth, and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded
them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men
which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them,
but that they should be tormented five months, and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion,
when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it, and shall desire to die, and
death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on
their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the
hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions, and they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron,
and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails
like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails, and their power was to hurt men five
months. Revelation 9:1-10.
“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, ‘Come and see,’ and I beheld, and lo a
black horse, and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.” Revelation 6:5.
Exterminator: And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit,
whose name. . . is Abaddon [Destruction], but in the Greek tongue his name is Apollyon [Destroyer].

One woe is past, and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.” Revelation 9:11-12.
“Satan is at the command; it is he, the EXTERMINATOR.” Dreams and Visions 244:12:14.
“The wicked shall do wickedly. . . and the abomination that maketh desolate [the mark and image of the beast, satan]
shall be set up. . . Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred thirty-five days.” Daniel 12:10-12.
“In the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. . . but it
shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” Daniel 2:44.
When the 7th trumpet messenger sounds: The seventh angel sounded. . . The kingdoms of this world are
become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” Revelation 11:15.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow.” Revelation 21:4.

Holiness to the Eternal Creator
Dreams and Visions No. 356:1
th

5 trumpet

THE LOCUSTS WILL TORMENT THE
MEN
The locusts torment the men that have on their
foreheads the 666 mark of the beast and who worship
his image.
There is not a great text to write about the fifth
th
(5 ) trumpet. In this vision John sees in Revelation
chapter 9:1-12 a star falling upon the earth.
Jesus instructed me, saying that this star is not a
meteorite which will come to strike the earth. This
star that John saw is that of a super volcano; it is the
well, very inaccessible and hidden to men. This well
opened up, letting escape upon the earth locusts who
had not yet received the order for tormenting the men.
Today, in the fifth (5th) trumpet that sounded in
heaven, the order is given to the locusts, that have
received the power, to torment the nations.
The power of the locusts is in their tail. It is
impossible for the nations to escape their power.
Their role would be to attack the economies of all the
nations in order to lead them to bankruptcy. It is thus
that all the nations will experience a crisis,
bankruptcy. All the nations will fall.
It is what the prophecy of Ellen White has
announced, that in the latter days all the countries will
fall.
These locusts, armed for combat, are men with
white, very curly hair like women. They have upon
their heads a golden crown; their teeth are like lion’s
teeth, and they make you shudder with their tails
similar to scorpions’ tails.
I saw, at the time of the vision, that their strength
is in their tails, with which they make the earth
tremble and provoke here and there calamities in
order to plunge humanity into torments.
The consequences (reason) of their presence
among men is to torment those who have the mark of
the beast: Collapse of the economy, lay offs (dismis-

sal), unemployment, loss of resources, increase of
high prices.
I saw everywhere in all the nations, the workers
were crying for their due. There will be famine everywhere. People were dying of hunger, it will be the
collapse of the economy.
No directors upon this planet, none will be able to
do anything to redress this situation, which will get
worse and worse, situation announced by the fifth
(5th) trump.
“The fifth trumpet,” said Jesus to me, “is the
END before the END.”
After the fifth (5th) trumpet comes the Sixth (6th)
trumpet.
Dreams and visions by Jeanine Sautron
“The prophecy of the fifth trumpet says that
the men will want to die, but death will flee far from
them. They must suffer for all the evil and for their
having forsaken the remembrance of God, and forgotten God on this earth to worship idols. They will
suffer every day. The blessings are withdrawn
from them.”
Dreams and Visions 259:3:10.

Dreams and Visions 339:1:3-9:

The prophecy of the fifth trumpet is not visible to man: the star, the key to the bottomless pit, the locusts, all that took place without
men being able to see this prophecy.
“In the night, I was taken in vision where the star is
to fall upon the earth, somewhere upon the earth. I was
taken by the spirit of God, who was watching over me. I
was trembling at the idea of being in this place, for the
meteorite was about to fall in this place. All of a
sudden, it was night; the air was filled with smoke, which
made the water bitter, and the sun was darkened by
the smoke from this meteorite which had just
fallen on the ground where I was. A strong heat was coming out from everywhere. . . It is then he said to me, “I
have a message for you to transmit. . . ‘The earth will
be in obscurity during five months. . .’ for it will
be confusion all over the earth. . .” Jesus said to me for us
to prepare, to equip yourselves with apparatuses for the
purpose of furnishing light for yourselves for these days
of darkness will be very long: five months. While

5th trumpet death knell of humanity—Page 2 of 4

the earth is under the scourge of the fifth trumpet, I
saw a black horse which was held back by a power
from the angels, and a voice was heard giving to the angels
the order to release the black horse. The latter departed
to go around the earth, and everywhere he passed he
sowed death on his way. Dreams and Visions 325:3:1-11.

The locusts will not be visible to men, it is a
prophecy that was revealed to John of Revelation, but
whose fulfilment was revealed by Dreams and
Visions, prophecy revealed in 2002. We will see the
effects by the events which will take place upon the
earth. The effects on the earth will be visible to our
eyes.
Locusts: My attention was drawn upon their
tails armed with stingers, and which had the power to
hurt. There were six stingers, three on each side of
their tail. They were similar to those of a scorpion,
with a terrible noise of a rattlesnake. The vision was
terrible! Dreams and Visions 259:2:15.
In some places where men live, the cities and
villages will know strange phenomena, lava from
volcanoes will come out of the earth, a little
everywhere, where there have never been any volcanoes; brooks with vapors of water will announce a
volcanic eruption.
Everywhere, it is panic. I see cities and villages
that will have to evacuate the places of imminent
danger. Everywhere upon the earth, there will be
falling ash like snow. It was cold. The sun
had darkened, and I could hardly see the objects, the
trees before me. A thick layer of ash under my feet
allowed me to see the magnitude of the catastrophe.
I saw that it happened in Canada, very close to the
“remnants” of this country. I saw that I was in the
country, isolated from the cities.
And even at present, the events are being prepared. The world will know a pain that no one will be
able to alleviate. Volcanoes with powerful
lava will come out everywhere upon the
earth.
I was brought back to France. I realized the magnitude of the catastrophe. In France, it was calm; the
weather was beautiful; it was autumn, when I heard
that a volcano will erupt near my home, three

kilometers from my house.
[In a dream recently, I have seen a threatening
sky; in full day the night set on this earth. I could no
longer budge nor breathe. I had lost everything that
day. . . Europe was plunged into days and
nights without sun. . . We must now press
together, press together, press together, for the end
will come like a thunder clap in a blue sky. Dreams and
Visions 256:3:1, 2, 7, 8.]
[In this prophecy revealed by Dreams and
Visions, the world finds itself in a thick darkness.
There is no sun. I saw like a smoke that hides the day.
The air is weighty, heavy to the point of suffocating
you, and everything seems to disappear in blackness
under this thick smoke. The sun and the air are
darkened. In this prophecy, there will be less day
and sun. The air will not be breathable and poisoned.
In the nature the fruits will no longer be succulent,
and the products of the harvests are going to diminish
by half. The days will be sunless. The products
of the earth will no longer be what they were when
the grace of God was with the men. Less harvest and
economy and the more will the life be expensive, very
expensive. And the men will suffer from this
expensive life and will want to die. They will have a
fear of tomorrow. The world finds itself in this deep
abyss. A thick darkness is swooping down upon the
earth. She is going toward her destruction. The vegetables and the fruits will be stopped in their growth.
Everything will be dispersed, divided, separated.
Nothing will any longer be able to get her back up.
She is going to perdition. . . Everything shows in this
prophecy of Chapter 9 of Revelation a degradation in
the world of nature, in the public life, in the social
life, in the religious life and the family. Dreams and
Visions 259:3:18-23.]
Dreams and Visions 339:2:
I went in vision to this region that I know well. I
saw smoking brooks coming out from the bowels of
the earth; glimmers of fire put the firmament ablaze.
It was terrible! The sun was darkening more
and more because of the magnitude of the
volcano. It was panic, fear.
I did not have time to reflect on anything any

5th trumpet death knell of humanity—Page 3 of 4

more. Only one thought came to my mind, and I said:
“Is it now the end of this world? It is not possible that
it is now, for I noticed that everything was calm; there
was a tranquil peace, when suddenly I realized that in
Canada, in France, all the countries were under the
grip of volcanoes. I had a battle in my mind, as if to
say to me: If you are not ready now, it is time to
prepare. A struggle was going on in me. I was asking
myself, am I ready? Have I forsaken all my
sins, as to put myself in question?
I had the impression: Yes, it is the end, but I did
not realize that it would have come so soon, and this
way. I realized that it was unexpected, sudden,
like a thunder clap in a blue sky.
In the panic, I picked up the phone. I had one sole
idea: to make my sister know what is happening,
quickly, so she can leave her home. I felt, every man
for himself; each one will have to trust God
in the events that will unfold upon the earth. I felt,
each man for himself. The watchword was given me:
“Escape for thy life!” See Genesis 19:17.
I saw that in Canada, before this phenomenon, they were not ready and had no
shelter.
The fifth trumpet took place in 2002. Prophecy
fulfilled.
The Church of Philadelphia

It was shown to me that the locusts are still in
action, but invisible in our eyes. They are upon the
earth.
Since the fifth trumpet, everything is upside
down in the nature: unexpected phenomena, as a door
opened, provoking upon the earth unexpected catastrophes for men.
Nothing will any longer stop the effects of the
warming, of the drought. The world is going
toward its end, plunging men into the worst calamities, all that, because of all those who have received
the mark of the beast, and who have accepted it
in the [6 6 6] UPC.
I saw, no more water, no more rain, no more bees.
The fields will no longer yield food. The prophecy is
crying with a loud voice that everything is coming to
its end.
It was shown to me, it is the volcanoes which
will erupt here and there in the cities, the villages, that
will darken the sun. The more we will come
closer to the time of the fifth trumpet, the more
these unexpected phenomena will happen.
There is, after the fifth trumpet another prophecy more important than the fifth trumpet,
which is the sixth trumpet.

Message of the 6th

trumpet: WAR

killing one third of men
“The war of

Armageddon

is approaching.” Dreams and Visions 197:3:3.

Bible study for January 19, 2013 (if Jesus does not come before then)

prepared by Roy Lemke

“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is
before God, saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the
great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month,
and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen [cavalry] was
two hundred thousand thousand [a myriad, unlimited number], and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw
the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire [shining like fire], and of jacinth [a
red color, bordering on black], and brimstone [sulphurous], and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions
[brave and mighty warrior heroes], and out of their mouths issued fire [lightning] and smoke and brimstone
[incense]. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the
brimstone, which issued out of their mouths, for their power [jurisdiction, liberty, right, strength] is in their
mouth [language], and in their tails, for their tails were like unto serpents [artful malicious persons], and
had heads [capital and extreme punishment], and with them they do hurt [unjustly or wickedly sin,
do wrong, socially or physically]. And the rest [the remaining two-thirds] of the men which were not killed
by these plagues [calamities], yet repented not [did not change their minds and heartily amend with
abhorrence their past sins and transgressions of God’s commandments] of the works [deeds] of their hands
[grasping for power to determine and control the destinies of men], that they should not worship
[reverence, like a dog licking his master’s hand] devils [demonic beings], and idols [images or icons of
heathen gods, such as the 666 upc icon of satan or the Babylonian icon of Sunday worship] of gold, and silver, and
brass, and stone, and of wood, which neither can see [discern], nor hear [understand], nor walk [live], neither
repented [did not change their minds and heartily amend with abhorrence their past sins and transgressions of
God’s commandments, such as the 7th day Sabbath of our creator] they of their murders, nor of their sorceries
[taking of drugs, witchcraft, and idolatries], nor of their fornication [adulteries, second marriages, fornications,
incests], nor of their thefts.” Revelation 9:13-21.
Dreams and Visions No. 339:3:1-14:

Warning: Armageddon is a WAR code.
PROPHECY OF THE SIXTH (6TH) TRUMPET
This message is: WAR.
There is a terrible warning in the sixth trumpet, a message dictated by Moses in the presence of
Jesus.
As in a prophetic vision, Moses said this, from the
book of John in Revelation:
“Whosoever worships the beast and receives his
mark will drink the cup of the wrath of God,
poured out without mixture.”
Here, this warning is addressed to the world and to

the “remnants” of Philadelphia. Jesus said: “Since you
have kept the perseverance in me, I will keep you at
the time of the great temptation.”
On the one hand, there are the consequences of
transgression; and, on the other hand, the faithfulness
in not transgressing: the obedience that he
required.
In the sixth trumpet, a war over money,
customs, crimes, social conflicts and so on, that men
are unable to solve, sets the earth ablaze. No more

6th Trumpet — WAR — Page 1 of 7

security; men live in fear. And satan, commanding all
these conflicts and having the monopoly of all these
things, stops in no way the war of Armageddon which
will set humanity ablaze. Armageddon: The time
of the sixth trumpet is going toward its fulfillment. It will not tarry.
The sixth trumpet of Revelation 9 releases the
four angels which are found on the Euphrates River.
This river will be the way through the combats.
I saw WAR, The winds are being released, the
humans will be full of wickedness with an appearance
of demons in human forms.

[“O the happiness of the people knowing the shout
{the alarm sound of the trumpet}, O Jehovah; in the
light of thy face they walk habitually.” Psalm 89:15 YLT]
In the sixth trumpet, I saw a great white
throne, of an immaculate whiteness, which was set
upon a great platform.
In the vision, I saw the Lord Jesus, who advances
galloping upon a white horse, followed by an escort of
angels.
The Lord gave order to take his horse back and to
make his escort depart in order to be alone with me.
Jesus remained a moment seated upon his white
throne, then he invited me to come close to him, closer
to his throne.
I saw written upon his chest: king of kings and
lord of lords.
Jesus was crowned with a golden crown and had a
golden scepter in his right hand. He was seated as the
king of the universe.
A little closer, I saw the scars upon his forehead
and in his hands. I saw his naked feet covered with
scars.
I saw an angel setting down next to the throne the
fuming censer, from which I saw coming out a few
little flames and some smoke. I found all this solemn.
From where I was, I saw the earth below with all

its night lights. Then he (Jesus) said to this angel to
take the censer and to throw it upon the earth. By
throwing it with all his strength, the earth lost all her
lights, and she found herself in the deepest darkness.
Dreams and Visions No. 2
A few months after this scene, I had another vision.
I found myself with the Lord in the greatest glaciers of this earth. I discovered that the red coals from
the censer were scattered in the immense glaciers as far
as the eye could see.
Jesus was there, great and majestic, and his robe
was of such a whiteness that I had difficulty seeing him
well because of the brightness of the ice packs.
In this place, I was not cold. I was walking barefooted on the ice packs, and I discovered red coals that
DO NOT GET EXTINGUISHED, thing that surprised
me very much.
Jesus said to me, “Look, most of all, do not touch
them! If you touch one single one of these red coals
you will die.”
I understood that these coals had power from God
to melt the glaciers, since Jesus is God himself, and
that he is the author of all this creation.
I was walking with Jesus by my side. I was happy
for not feeling the cold, neither on my body, nor under
my feet.
In our walk, he showed me that the coals were
doing their work of melting the glaciers. Nothing will
stop this phenomenon anymore. He brought me before
a fait accompli (a done deal).
I saw large blocks of ice which, in getting loose,
were falling with an enormous crash. And I saw that all
the glaciers were cracked and ready to break off like
icebergs.

“THE COUNTDOWN HAS
STARTED,”
SAID JESUS TO ME;
“IT IS THE END BEFORE
THE END:

6th Trumpet — WAR — Page 2 of 7

THE GLACIERS ARE
MELTING
ON THE PLANET
The whole planet will be hit.”
This message is a part of the sixth (6th) trumpet: the
glaciers are melting. Following this message, there is
another message, which is also a part of the SIXTH
(6th) TRUMPET, which is the end of humanity:

THE KNELL’S SOUND
In the heaven, at the time of the vision, I saw an
angel who was at rest, and a trumpet was given him.
Jesus our Lord was seated upon the great white throne
as king of kings and lord of lords. Around the
throne, angels gathered to listen to the sound of the
trumpet.
There was a great, solemn silence, and then came
the sound of the trumpet by the angel who performed
it with a slow, sad, and dismal sound. The sound was
sad; and I saw the angels weeping and meditating with
sadness.
When the angel ended with the sound of the trumpet, Jesus dismissed his angels, and I remained near the
throne, for he had to transmit to me the reason of my
presence in the heaven.
Jesus said to me, “What you heard, is the knell’s
sound, announcing the end of humanity, the end of
sin and of the sinners.”
“The trumpet caused the KNELL of humanity
to be heard, the END of the sixth (6th) trumpet.”
THE REASON WHY
THE DEATH KNELL HAS SOUNDED,
PUTTING
AN END TO HUMANITY
Jesus gave me the explanation of the sound of this
trumpet, which is a part of the sixth trumpet.
The time has come to put an end to sin and to the
author of sin. The earth is filthy, like it was in the time
of Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by
fire.
The world went over the limits of the grace of God
and trampled under feet the blood of his son to save
them. It will undergo a sudden and unexpected ruin.

Dreams and Visions No. 4

Jesus announces that
the end is programmed:
It is near at hand!
In the heaven, near the throne of the Lord, while
the angels were withdrawing in silence and in perfect
order, I saw that this angel who had sounded THE
KNELL remained near to the throne with his trumpet
at rest.
I went into vision with Jesus. I saw an army of
horsemen, whose number was of myriads and myriads.
I saw in the vision the same vision that John had in
the book of Revelation 9:16-21.
I noticed that the power of the horses was in their
mouths and in their tails which were like serpents.
I saw that this numerous, strong and powerful army
departed, upon the order of Jesus, toward the
EARTH.
I was trembling before the vision. FIRE,
BRIMSTONE, and SMOKE were coming out of
their mouths. I was trembling when a horse with a
mane of a lion was spitting fire, brimstone, and that
smoke was coming out of its mouth.
The Lord reassured me, saying, “Be not afraid.
You are in vision.”
This army departed from heaven for their work of
death. One third of the men were killed by this plague.
The power to hurt was in the tails of the horses,
like serpents, and I was able to understand that this ailment would hit men in their bowels to cause them to
die. This ailment would be CANCER.

Dreams and Visions No. 5
The sixth (6th) trumpet gives order to this army of
Revelation of John 9:16-21 to sow death upon the third
of men, who will be killed by the serpent-like tails of
the horses.
The angel who had sounded the KNELL of
humanity declares, in the presence of Jesus seated
upon his great white throne, the death of the men, who
will die of CANCER in their bowels. The third of
men will die of prostate cancer, and the women of
breast CANCER.
This angel presents the ten commandments before

6th Trumpet — WAR — Page 3 of 7

the throne of God, and said regarding this law:
“THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT
ADULTERY,”
fornication, and polygamy.
It is because of this sin, (being similar to the sin of
Sodom and Gomorrah, that this army, described by
John in the Revelation of John and revealed by the
Dreams and Visions of Jeanine Sautron,) that this army
entered into action upon the order of Jesus. He entered
into war with all the nations.
The KNELL is silent, imperceptible, but working
like the plagues that hit the people of Egypt in the old
world. Women and men, and even their children, will
be hit by the serpent tails of these horses.
Women, men, and children will perish by the four
angels which have been released for their work of
death.
I saw that one sole angel caused a whole nation to
perish. I saw that one of these four (4) angels is at the
door of the seventh-day adventists, who have received
the mark of the beast upon their forehead.
This angel presents the commandments of God and
says: “Whosoever puts away his wife and marries
another commits adultery, and whosoever marries
a man that is put away by his wife, she also commits adultery. In the wrong or in the right, remarriage after a divorce is adultery.” See Luke 16:18.
“Don’t you know that: neither fornicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind shall inherit the kingdom of
God? And such were some of you.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.
[“Don’t you know that the unrighteous will
not inherit the kingdom of Supreme
Almighty God? Don’t be deceived. Neither those
who prostitute themselves, nor image worshipers, nor
adulterers (those who live in second marriages as husband and wife without legal right to
marriage), nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards,
nor abusers, nor extortioners, will inherit the royal
kingdom of Supreme Almighty God. Such were some
of you, but you are washed. But you are made holy.
But you are justified in the name of the Master Jesus
(“God with us” to save us “from our sins”) and by the
spirit of our Supreme Almighty God.” 1 Corinthians 6:911, Meditator’s Bible]

In the sixth trumpet, the men die because of their
sexual and immoral depravity. God does not accept
sexual relationships before and after marriage.
“It is this sin,” said the Lord to me, “that caused
the men and women of Sodom and Gomorrah to be
judged and consumed by fire. These sins defile the
planet.”
Jesus said: “It is enough. THAT IS ENOUGH.”
It is what has been decided in the heaven: the
END of sin and of the sinners. The world is ALREADY CONDEMNED. The END is at hand.
The Lord spoke to me and said that he will come to
destroy those who are destroying the earth. He spoke
of the nuclear, in the sense I understand it to mean: it
is similar to the tails of the serpents of the Revelation
of John 9:11, 12.
The INVISIBLE death is everywhere round
about the worshipers of the beast. The earth is dying.
The sixth trumpet is the beginning of the end. The men
will realize it, and no one will be able to do anything
anymore. Dreams and Visions, January 4, 2013.
The four

winds of war,
“the time of trouble,”
are announced by the sixth angel’s
trumpet!
“The sixth trumpet announces that the winds
will be released.” Dreams and Visions 342:1:8.
“And the sixth angel sounded [a trumpet],
and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden
altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel
which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels
which are bound in the great river Euphrates, and the
four angels were loosed, which were prepared for
an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for
to slay the third part of men!” Revelation 9:13-15.
In the vision, the day, the date, and the hour
were passed onto me. Such will be the prophecy that
the winds will be released Thursday, October 11,

Jesus’ counsels:
“They asked him saying, ‘Master, but when
shall these things be? And what sign will there be
when these things shall come to pass?’ And he said,
‘Take heed that ye be not deceived, for many shall
come in my name, saying, “I am christ, and the time
draweth near;” go ye not therefore after them. . . But
before all these, they shall lay their hands
on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to
the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought
before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. And it
shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in
your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall
answer, for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which
all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor
resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents,
and brethren, and kinfolks, and friends, and some of
you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall
be hated of all men for my name’s sake.

Revelation 15:1), except they repent of their deeds. I will
kill her children in death. All churches know I am he
who searches the inmost thoughts and hearts (feelings
and purposes of the soul), and give each of you according
to your works.” Revelation 2:22, 23. She wears a crown of
political power, is promoted in the newspapers around the
world daily, and is “that great city which reigns over the
kings of the earth” {Revelation 17:18}, having diplomats
and embassies in countries around the world.
Blasphemy: “And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.” Revelation 13:6.
Jesus warned us of this blasphemous heresy of papacyism
{the name I give to the overall universal adoration of the
papacy going far beyond just the Catholic Church’s worship of the papacy, the “man of sin,” as if he was supreme
almighty God, and includes Protestantism, Buddhism,
Islam, and all other religions joined by treaties and
agreements to the papacy by ecumenicalism}, saying: “But
in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.” All of papacyism’s doctrines are
only “commandments of men,” not having Jesus’ blood
and agreement with his sinless word to save anyone from
their sins. There is no other name than Jesus whereby we
must be saved from our sinfulness in order to enter a sinless
heaven. Papacyism is a religion of Babylonian superstition,
lies, and blasphemy against supreme almighty God, and
directly opposed to the teachings of Jesus, “the truth,”
“the word of God made flesh.” Jesus said, “Except a
man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
John 3:3. Peter said, “See that you love one another with
a pure heart fervently, being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God,
who lives and abides forever.” 1 Peter 1:23. “And the
word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we
beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14. Papacyism
rejects the word of God and instead worships by the
papacy’s “antichrist” doctrines and commandments of
men.
Sunday: At creation, God made the seventh-day
Sabbath a blessing of sanctification, or holiness to the
Eternal Creator, intending to set aside that 24-hour period
for our communion with supreme almighty God,
reconnecting with him, worship of him, restoration to his
word, and rest from our secular self-interested labors. The
papacy blasphemously changed the Sabbath to Sunday, a
common secular work day, which Babylonians had
dedicated to the worshiping of the sun. All of the scriptures
have condemned such Babylonian sun worship. Elijah met
such Babylonian sun worshipers on Mount Carmel and
defeated them with the word of God. Babylon and its
descendant papacyism in no way accomplishes sanctification, that “holiness without which no man shall see
the Eternal Creator.” Hebrews 12:14. “Truly, my
Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between me and
you throughout your generations, that you may know
that I am the Eternal Creator who does sanctify you.”
Exodus 31:13. Mankind can never enter a sinless heaven
without being born again by the word of God into Jesus. “If

any man shall take away from the words of the book of
this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the
book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the
things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:19.
Since we are “born again” by this “word of God,”
“Jesus,” “God with us,” then it is not possible for anyone
from papacyism who rejects the holy scriptures’
“everlasting gospel” to enter the kingdom of God. For this
reason, we see in Revelation 14:9-11, the complete
condemnation with the wrath of God of those who worship
the papacy (instead of God), and the papacy’s Sunday law
instead of receiving supreme almighty God’s seventh-day
Sabbath blessing of sanctification by the word of God. To
worship the papacy as “lord,” and his Babylonian Sunday
law, is to reject Jesus, “the Lord even of the Sabbath
Day.” Matthew 12:8.
666 (ååå) worship of the church: The
holy Bible says that Christians “are sealed” by “the holy
spirit of God.” Ephesians 4:30. The Bible describes how
this is accomplished: “I will put my laws into their
hearts, and in their minds will I write them.” Hebrews
10:16. There is no provision for papacyism’s man-made
Babylonian sun-god traditions. Satan’s counterfeit “mark”
in man is the “666” (ååå) invisible bar code (or microchip)
in the hand or forehead and the visible UPC “666" (ååå) bar
code on food and bottled water, signifying that the recipient
of that mark or the eater of that food in those packages
belongs to or is dependent upon Satan for sustenance
(having his 666 (ååå) tattoo of ownership or eating that
which is sacrificed to Satan with the 666 (ååå) UPC bar
code). Jesus’ people, “having his father’s name [his
“holy, just, and good” law character of loving God enough
to keep his commandments] written in their foreheads,”
are not defiled by apostate churches, because they “follow
the lamb wherever he goes; they are “redeemed from
among men;” “they are without fault before the throne
of God.” Revelation 14:4, 5. They are justified by faith in
“the word of God.” God’s people “worship [“in spirit
and in truth”] him who made heaven, the earth, the sea,
and the fountains of waters,” their creator, Jesus, “the
truth.” Satan’s 666 (ååå) papists worship “in vain,”
worshiping the author of Babylonian Sunday worship and
Sabbath desecration, “teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men,” instead of “the commandments
of God.” Satan’s 666 (ååå) “man of sin” exalts himself, his
laws, and his traditions of men above the law of God, and
persecutes those who love God enough to keep his commandments.

666
, the church: Babylonian papacyism
purports to be the “vicar of the son of God,” according to
apostolic succession from the apostle Peter by the cardinals
electing successor popes according to their popular vote
(the “kingdom of God” is a “kingdom” with one king,
Jesus; it is not a democracy). The numerical value of this
title, “vicar of the son of God,” adds up to “666" (ååå) in
several languages, as the scripture says, “the number of
his name.” But the papal religion in no way even faintly
resembles the real Christianity of Jesus and the word of
God, but instead it is pure idolatry, Babylonianism, with
Babylonian holy days (such as Sunday, Christmas, Easter,

Faith during the mark of the beast! — Page 3

The Mark Of The Beast
Page 4

Halloween, etc.), and Babylonian idolatrous repetitive liturgies. Catholicism is Babylonian in source, Babylonian in
practice, and Babylonian in results, which is the reason for
the curse of Jesus found in Revelation 14:9, 10, 11: “If any
man worship the beast [the papacy] and his image
[Sunday], and receive his [“666” (ååå)] mark in his
forehead or in his hand, the same shall drink of the
wine of the wrath of God.... and whosoever receives the
mark [“666” (ååå)] of his name [his anti-word-of God
character].” The whole world worships and/or is linked by
ecumenicalism to papacyism, but the scriptures say:
“Neither is there salvation in any other [than Jesus], for
there is no other name under heaven given among men
whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12. Therefore,
according to holy scripture, papacyism is not needed for
Jesus to “save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21.
Jesus’ “word” is the only salvation from the “seven last
plagues” falling upon humanity, which fall upon all who
have rejected Jesus’ warnings to repent of their sins against
God’s commandments, because Jesus’ “word”
“condemned sin in the flesh,” because Jesus’
“word”condemning sin is in the “seven vials” of the
“seven last plagues” condemning “sin in the flesh.” Romans
8:3. Jesus is “the word [of God] was made flesh.” John
1:14. “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every
word. . . of God.” Matthew 4:4. Flee the 666 (ååå) church!
666 (ååå), no other gods: The ten commandments say not to worship papacyism: “You shall have no
other gods before me [supreme almighty God].” Exodus
20:3. And regarding papal idolatry of Mary, Peter, etc.:
“You shall not make for yourself any graven image. . .
. you shall not bow down yourself to them nor serve
them, for I the Eternal Creator, your supreme almighty
God, am a jealous God. . . .” Exodus 20:4, 5.
666 (ååå), Sunday: Regarding the papacy’s
Babylonian Sun-day worship, the fourth commandment
says: “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy; six
days shall you labor [Sunday through Friday] and do all
your work, but the seventh-day [Saturday] is the
Sabbath of the Eternal Creator, your God; in it you
shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your
daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor
your cattle, nor the stranger that is within your gates,
for in six days the Eternal Creator made heaven and
earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the
seventh day; wherefore the Eternal Creator blessed the
Sabbath Day and made it holy.” Exodus 20:8-11. Sundaykeeping was brought from Roman Babylonian sun-worship
into the Roman Catholic Church in order for them to more
easily assimilate Roman Sunday-keeping sun-worshiper
converts under their dominion. Jesus kept the seventh-day
Sabbath holy, according to supreme almighty God’s
commandment, and he worked on Sunday according to
supreme almighty God’s commandment. Jesus did not keep
the Babylonian Sunday, the mark of papacyism and Roman

Babylonian sun worship.

666 (ååå) Banks: We must no longer use bank
cards, because the code 666 (ååå) is encoded in the
MasterCard and VISA and in all of the world banking
systems. These are warnings for us who wish to remain
faithful to Jesus. We need a solid faith and an intimate
communion with our master in order to resist and remain
upright.
666 (ååå), in the hand or forehead:

The second beast of Revelation 13:11-18 is the
governments of the world in their unanimous acceptance of
marking all their citizens, as if they belong to Satan (with
Satan’s 666 (ååå) bar code or microchip) with “the number
of his name,” “666” (ååå). This “mark of the beast” is now
being utilized by the supermarkets in order to speed checkouts at grocery check-out stands; later it will be utilized by
department stores, etc. Finally, as “homeland security”
issues worsen, and apostate Protestantism reaches across
the gulf to papacyism in order to gain control of the world,
the governments of the world will require “all, both small
and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a
[“666” (ååå) invisible laser] mark in their right hand or in
their forehead, and that no man might buy or sell
except he who has the mark [“666” (ååå)] or the name
[the papacy and its Babylonian Sunday worship as a sign of
its worldly power on earth] of the beast, or the number
[“666” (ååå)] of his name.” Revelation 13:16, 17.
This 666 (ååå) code belongs to Satan, and men and
women will become “human machines” with a code mark
in their bodies. Christians will be rejected by society, not
having the code 666 (ååå) upon them, but our Eternal
Creator will not abandon his children in periods of crisis.
Reject the filth of the internet; do not use it. The giant
internet computer system will lead all the people of the
world to adopt the international code of 666. This giant
computer is the beast’s tool. The 666 and the Sunday law
will prepare the way for the antichrist impersonator of
Jesus. In all the supermarkets, banks, post offices, etc.,
everywhere there will be computers with the code 666. The
false Jesus will not have scars in his hands, and will speak
for unity and 666 acceptance.
666 (ååå), to “buy and sell” food: The
UPC bar code used around the world contains the checkdigits of 6 at the beginning, 6 in the middle, and 6 at the
end; thus, “666” (ååå). Satan has introduced the “number of
his name” to require it of all men in order to buy and sell.
It is “the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast
a stumbling-block before the children of Israel, to eat
things sacrificed unto idols. . . .” Revelation 2:14. Those
who get “the victory over” “the number of his name”
will buy their food in bulk from the farmers and farmers’
markets rather than eat Satan’s “666” (ååå) “number of his
name” UPC-bar-coded food.

Revelation 13
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a
beast rise up out of the sea [“The waters which you saw,
where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and
nations, and tongues.” Revelation 17:15.], having seven
heads [“the seven heads are seven mountains on which
the woman {Rome} sits.” Revelation 17:9.] and ten
horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his
heads the name of blasphemy [“vicarius filii dei” or
“vicar of the son of God,” blasphemously meaning to stand
in the place of God, having the numeric 666 value of
Revelation 13:18].
And the beast [of Daniel 7:7] [“the fourth beast shall
be the fourth kingdom {Babylonian Rome, then papal
Rome} upon earth.” Daniel 7:23] which I saw was like
unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear,
and his mouth as the mouth of a lion, and the dragon
[“the great dragon. . . that old serpent, called the devil,
and Satan, who deceives the whole world. . . . and his
angels.” Revelation 12:9.] gave him his power, his seat,
and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads, as it were, wounded to
death [1798], and his deadly wound was healed, and all
the world wondered after the beast. They worshiped the
dragon [Satan] who gave power unto the beast [papacy],
and they worshiped the beast [papacy], saying, “Who is
like unto the beast [papacy]? Who is able to make war
with him?”
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking
great things and blasphemies, and power was given
unto him to continue forty-two months [42x30=1,260
years = 538 AD - 1798 AD, the time of papal supremacy
over “the kings of the earth” during the dark ages]. And
he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, his tabernacle, and those who
dwell in heaven. It was given unto him to make war
with the saints [“the saints. . . those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation
14:12] and to overcome them, and power was given him
over all kindred, languages, and nations. All that dwell
upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not
written in the book of life of the lamb [“John seeing
Jesus come unto him said, ‘Behold, the lamb of God,
who takes away the sin of the world.” John 1:29] slain
from the foundation of the world. If any man have an
ear, let him hear: He who leads into captivity shall go
into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be
killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith
of the saints [see Revelation 14:12].
And I beheld another beast [Protestantism] coming up
out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb [like
Jesus], and he spoke as a dragon [a devil]. He exercises
all the power of the first beast [the papacy with his
Satanic Babylonian Sunday law power] before him, and
Next:

causes the earth and those who dwell therein to worship
the first beast [the papacy with his Satanic Babylonian
Sunday law power], whose deadly wound was healed. He
does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down
from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and
deceives those who dwell on the earth by the means of
those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of
the beast [papacy], saying to those who dwell on the
earth, that they should make an image [a Sunday law
likeness to the seventh-day Sabbath Lord’s day] to the
beast, who had the wound by a sword, and did live. He
had power to give life unto the image [a Sunday law
likeness to God’s fourth commandment] of the beast [the
papacy], that the image [a Sunday law likeness to the
seventh-day Sabbath Lord’s day] of the beast [papacy]
should both speak, and cause that as many as would not
worship the image [a Sunday law likeness to the seventhday Sabbath Lord’s day] of the beast [papacy] should be
killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and
poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right
hand or in their foreheads, that no man might buy or
sell, except he who had the mark or the name of the
beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let
him who has understanding count the number of the
beast [papacy], for it is the number of a man, and his
number is 666, 666, 666, 666* [that is, the “666” papacy
blasphemously playing God, “666” his image Sunday law
counterfeit of Jesus’ 7th day Sabbath, “666” his blasphemous mark in the hand or forehead, and “666” the number of
his name by the UPC bar code on food sacrificed to Satan.
See Revelation 15:2]
God’s people are required to overcome all four
aspects of Satan’s 666 temptations to disobey God: “The
third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If any
man (1) worship the beast and (2) his image, and (3)
receive his mark in his forehead or in his hand,
the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which
is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation, and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in
the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the
lamb.’” Revelation 14:9-10. “I saw thrones, and they sat
upon them. Judgment was given unto them, and I saw the
souls of those who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,
and for the word of God, and which had not (1) worshiped the beast, (2) neither his image, (3) neither had
received his mark upon their foreheads or in
their hands. They lived and reigned with Christ a
thousand years.” Revelation 20:4. I saw something like a
sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who had gotten the
victory (1) over the beast, (2) over his image, (3) over
his mark, and (4) over the number of his name
stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.”
Revelation 15:2. All four are transgressions of God’s first
commandment and fourth commandment, and are all antiword-of-God.

who sits upon a “scarlet colored beast” is an apostate church. “In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines

His was not an independent rule. The earth is God's,
and he has committed all things to his son. Adam was
to reign subject to Christ. When Adam betrayed his
sovereignty into Satan's hands, Christ still remained the
rightful king. Thus the Lord had said to King Nebuchadnezzar, "The most high rules in the kingdom of men,
and giveth it to whomever he will." Daniel 4:17. Satan
can exercise his usurped authority only as God permits.
The Desire of Ages, pages 129, 130. To claim to be the “vicar
of the son of God,” while being the “vicar of Satan” is
the blasphemy of the papacy. (The son of God is “the
word of God,” “the truth,” “that cannot lie.” John 1 and
14:6; Titus 1:2.) (Satan “is a liar,” and “where the word
{of God} is sown. . . Satan comes immediately and
takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.”
John 8:44; Mark 4:15.) The rejecters of “the word of God”
are rejecters of “the everlasting gospel” and therefore
are antichrist, anti-word-of-God, just as the papacy is.
The papacy says that today the pope stands in that
position as the representative of God on earth. Is he the
representative of God on earth? Or is he the representative of Satan, the “antichrist,” (the anti-word-of-God
man), the “man of sin?” The “man of sin” tramples
upon the first four of God’s 10 commandments,
trampling upon the “Lord, even of the Sabbath Day.”
The “man of sin,” is “the son of perdition (utter
destruction),” because “sin is the transgression of the
law,” that “man of sin” papacy tramples upon God’s 10
commandments, and “the wages of sin is death (utter
destruction). (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Romans 6:23.) “In the
beginning was the word, and the word was with God,
and the word was God.” (John 1:1.) That “word” that
“was God” was made flesh and we beheld him, as Jesus
told Satan: “Get behind me, Satan, for it is written,
‘You shall worship the Eternal Creator, your
Supreme Almighty God, and him only shall you
serve.’” No church, no angel, no man on earth is to be
worshiped. In another instance, Jesus used almost the
same words, when Peter tried to rebuke “the spirit of
prophecy” that was in Jesus: “From that time forth
began Jesus to show unto his disciples how that he
must go unto Jerusalem, suffer many things of the
elders, chief priests, and scribes, be killed, and be
raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and
began to rebuke him, saying, ‘Be it far from you,
Lord; this shall not be unto you.’ But he [Jesus]
turned and said unto Peter, ‘Get behind me,
Satan; you are an offense unto me, for you savor
not the things that be of [“the spirit of prophecy,”
which Jesus was prophesying, of] God, but those that
be of men.’” Then, conversely, “whoever shall deny
me [Jesus] before men, him will I also deny before
my father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:33.) Jesus had
said, “All of you shall be offended because of me this
night, for it is written, ‘I will smite the shepherd, and
the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.’”
(Matthew 26:31.) Then Peter denied Jesus’ words again:
“Peter answered and said unto him, ‘Though all men

Peter was an erring hypocrite: “But when Peter had

be blamed. . . . And the other Jews were hypocrites likewise with
him. . . . Barnabas also was carried away with their hypocrisy.”
Galatians 2:11, 13. Jesus said: “There is none good but one, that
is, God; but if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.”
Matthew 19:17.
Peter was a married man; the papacy made up a
man-made rule for the priests not to marry: “When
Jesus had come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother
lying down, sick with a fever.” Matthew 8:14.

The “faith of Jesus” is the faith of “the word of
God: “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with
God and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with
God. All things were made by him, and without him was not
anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was
the light of men. . . . The word was made flesh, and dwelt among
us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of
the father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:1-4, 14. “We have
redemption through his (the son of God’s) blood, even the
forgiveness of sins, who is the image of the invisible God, . . . for
by him were all things created that are in heaven and that are on
earth, visible and invisible. . . all things were created by him and
for him.” Colossians 1:14-16. “But unto the son he said, ‘Your
throne, O God, is forever and ever, a scepter of righteousness is
the scepter of your kingdom. . . . You, Lord, in the beginning
have laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the
works of your hands.” Hebrews 1:8-10. “Man shall not live by
bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth
of God.” Matthew 4:4; Luke 4:4. Since the papacy discards the
Bible, the papacy is “not of God,” as it is written: “He who is of
God hears God’s words. You, therefore, do not hear them,
because you are not of God.” John 8:47.

The Apostles preached the word of God; the
papacy preaches the word of the papacy, his Babylonian sun-god idolatrous religion: “They preached the
word of God.” Acts 13:5. The papacy rejects the “everlasting
gospel” of “the word of God.” Jesus condemned all of the manmade papal doctrines: “But in vain they do worship me, teaching
for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:9. Paul
said that it was his duty to “fulfill the word of God:” “I am made
a minister, according to the dispensation of God, which is given
to me for you, to fulfill the word of God.” Colossians 1:25. We are
“sanctified by the word of God and prayer.” 1 Timothy 4:5. “The
word of God is alive, powerful, and sharper than any two-edged
sword.” Hebrews 4:12. Jesus’ “name is called the word of God.”
Revelation 19:13.

shall be offended because of you, yet will I never be
offended.” (Matthew 26:33.) Thus Peter denied Jesus’
words the second time. Jesus answered Peter’s faithless
unbelief by saying: “Jesus said unto him, “Truly I say
unto you, that this night, before the rooster crows,
you shall deny me three times.” (Matthew 26:34.) Then
Peter denied “the word of God” from Jesus again the
third time: “Peter said unto him, ‘Though I should die
with you, yet will I not deny you.’ Likewise also said
all the disciples.” Peter and “all the disciples” had
contradicted “the word of God,” thus denying their
Lord, and denying his “spirit of prophecy” telling them
of the great sin they were about to commit. Then Peter

fulfilled Jesus’ prophecy concerning Peter and the other
disciples. “Then he began to curse and to swear,
saying, ‘I know not the man.’ Immediately the
rooster crowed.” “Peter remembered the word of
Jesus, who said unto him, ‘Before the rooster crows,
you shall deny me three times.” (Matthew 26:74, 75.)
Peter, in these four times of denying “the word of
God,” was Jesus’ example to us of the papal church
which denies “the word of God” as Peter did.
The papacy, by denying “the word of God” commits
the same blasphemy against God, “the blasphemy
against the holy spirit,” (Matthew 12:31), “the
blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are
not, but are the synagogue of Satan,” the blasphemy
of rejecting and denying “the word of God.” Peter had
later learned his great error and repented, as it is written
by Peter: “See that you love one another with a pure
heart fervently, being born again, not of corruptible
seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, who
lives and abides forever.” (1 Peter 1:23.) Peter had
learned the hard lesson of believing “the word of God,”
even when it was, by appearance, against him. “You
must be born again. . . . by the word of God!” (John
3:7; 1 Peter 1:23.) But the papacy has never believed “the
word of God,” denying Christ (being the “antichrist,”
the anti-word of God), even to the present time. When
Protestants deny “the word of God” by making an
“image” (Sunday, the papacy’s blasphemy against the
“word of God” fourth commandment) to the papacy
“beast” Sunday by forcing (through legislative counsels) the whole world to accept the vicarius filii dei
“666” “mark of the beast,” and the papacy’s blasphemous “image,” Sunday, then will come the “wrath
of God:” “If any man worship the beast and his
image, and receive his mark in his forehead or in his
hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath
of God, which is poured out without mixture into the
cup of his indignation,” (Revelation 14:9, 10.), just as Jesus
said: “He who believes on the son has everlasting life,
and he who believes not the son shall not see life, but
the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:36.) What is
this “wrath of God”? “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.” (Romans 1:18.) “But after your hardness
and impenitent heart you treasure up unto yourself
wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the
righteous judgment of God, who will render to every
man according to his deeds.” (Romans 2:5, 6.) “But if
you do that which is evil, be afraid, for he bears not
the sword in vain, for he is the minister of God, a
revenger to execute wrath upon he who does evil.”
“Love one another, for he who loves another fulfills
the law, for this, ‘You shall not commit adultery,’
‘You shall not kill,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall
not bear false witness,’ ‘You shall not covet.’” (Romans
13:4, 8, 9.) “This you know, that no whoremonger, nor
unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater
[as the Roman Catholics are], has any inheritance in

the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man
deceive you with vain words, for because of these
things comes the wrath of God upon the children of
disobedience. Be not, therefore, partakers with
them.” (Ephesians 5:5, 6, 7.) “Come out of her, my
people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and
that you receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4.)
Soon the “seventh angel poured out his vial into the
air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of
heaven, from the throne, saying, ‘It is done!’” “Great
Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give
unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his
wrath.” (Revelation 16:17, 19.) The “great Babylon” here
referred to has two definitions. The first definition was
the original definition of the word at the tower of Babel;
Babylon then meant, “gateway to heaven;” the confused
people back then, did not rely upon “the word of God,”
who had said, “I will not again curse the ground any
more for man’s sake, for the imagination of man’s
heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite
any more everything living, as I have done.” “I will
establish my covenant with you; neither shall all
flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood;
neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the
earth.” “I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be
for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.”
“The waters shall no more become a flood to destroy
all flesh.” (Genesis 8:21; 9:11, 13, 15.) But instead of
believing the promise of “the word of God,” the people
back then built “a tower, whose top may reach unto
heaven.” (Genesis 11:4.) Then God “there confounded
their language, that they may not understand one
another’s speech.” (Genesis 11:7.) This is how Babel,
meaning “the gateway to heaven” by men’s works of not
relying upon “the word of God” became Babylon,
meaning “confusion.” It is the same today. The
Catholics reject “the word of God” for themselves,
rejecting “righteousness by faith” in “the word of
God” for themselves, and instead rely upon their own
merits of “hail, Mary, full of grace,” and other vain
repetitions, idolatries, Sunday sacredness, infant baptisms, and papacy-worship, all in “vain deceit after the
tradition of men.” (Colossians 2:8.) “Let no man beguile
you of your reward in a voluntary humility and
worshiping of angels, intruding into those things
which he has not seen, vainly puffed up [self-centered, conceited, egotistical, arrogant, self-righteous, and
self-important] by his fleshly mind,” (Colossians 2:18), for
“in vain [self-righteousness relying upon their manmade Sunday Babylonian traditions to merit salvation
from God] they do worship me, teaching for doctrines
the commandments of men,” (Matthew 15:9.), such as
“the image of the beast,” Sunday.
Many are without God and without hope in the
world. They are guilty, corrupt, and degraded, enslaved
by Satan’s devices. Yet these are the ones whom Christ
came from heaven to redeem. They are subjects for
tenderest pity, sympathy, and tireless effort, for they are
on the verge of ruin. They suffer from ungratified

desires, disordered passions, and the condemnation of
their own consciences; they are miserable in every sense
of the word, for they are losing their hold on this life
and have no prospect for the life to come. But Jesus, in
his last invitations to mankind, says: “I will give unto
he who is athirst of the fountain of the water of life
freely. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and
I will be his God, and he shall be my son, but the
fearful, unbelieving, the abominable, murderers,
whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars
shall have their part in the lake which burns with
fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:7, 8.) “There shall in no wise enter into it
anything that defiles, neither whatever works abomination or makes a lie, but they who are written in the
lamb’s book of life.” (Revelation 21:27.) “Behold, I come
quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the sayings of the
prophecy of this book.” (Revelation 22:7.) “I fell down to
worship before the feet of the angel who showed me
these things; then said he unto me: ‘See that you do
it not, for I am your fellow-servant, and of your
brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the
sayings of this book. Worship God!” (Revelation 22:8, 9.)
“Blessed are those who do his commandments, that
they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter
in through the gates into the city, for without are
dogs, and sorcerers, whoremongers, murderers,
idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.”
(Revelation 22:14, 15.) “The spirit and the bride say,
‘Come!’ Let he who is athirst come! Whoever will,
let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17.)
“If any man shall add unto these things (of “the word
of God”), God shall add unto him the plagues that
are written in this book.” In other words, if any man
shall add to “the word of God” man-made doctrines,

fanaticisms, and traditions from Babylonianism and
papacyism (such as Sunday), “God shall add unto him
the plagues that are written in this book.” (Revelation
22:18.) “If any man shall take away from the words of
the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his
part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city,
and from the things which are written in this book.”
(Revelation 22:19.) In other words, if “the man of sin,” the
papacy says not to read and live by “every word that
proceeds from the mouth of God,” the Bible, “God
shall take away his part out of the book of life.”
The day of the sun, Sunday, was a day devoted to the
most vile of the heathen worship, for it was celebrated
in connection with sun worship. This Sunday-sabbath
has been accepted by many who know it to be the
foundling of heathenism, which has been cherished and
nourished by the Church of Rome, and by her clothed in
the garments of sanctity. But while many are now aware
of its origin, there are true Christians in every church
who do not know the origin of the Sunday-sabbath, and
believe that they are keeping the day which God
sanctified and blessed. This is true of worshipers even
in the Catholic Church; and while this ignorance and
integrity remain, God accepts of their sincerity, but
when the light shall fall upon their pathway, God
requires them to come into harmony with his law, and
to observe the Sabbath of his appointing. The time has
come when the glory of the Lord is to fill the earth, and
when the whole earth shall be lightened with his glory,
the cry is sounding to the honest in heart to “‘come out
from among them and be separate,’ says the Lord,
‘and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive
you, and will be a father unto you, and you shall be
my sons and daughters,’ says the Almighty Eternal
Creator.”

When a man on earth claims to speak for God, then what that man says should be based upon the word of God.
But when that man instead speaks against what the word of God has said, then he is a liar; the truth is not in him. “He
who says, ‘I know him,’ and keeps not his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:4. “In
the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. The word became flesh
and dwelt among us, and we saw his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the father, full of grace and
truth.” John 1:1, 14. Jesus is the word of God made flesh, and, as such, he only spoke the words that his heavenly
father gave him to speak (under divine inspiration). The papacy blasphemously claims to speak for God on earth (as
if under divine inspiration), but speaks just the opposite, giving the devil’s counsel to disobey the first four
commandments. The papacy is therefore the 666 anti-word-of-God antichrist “man of sin.” Teaching idolatry,
Babylonian sunday-worship, and Sabbath-breaking, the papacy bequeaths sin and eternal loss as its legacy to
mankind. “The wages of sin is death.” It is the blasphemy of those who claim to be Christians, but who reject the
word of God, the only means by which we are “born again by the word of God;” thus, rejecting the only faith-inthe-word-of-God-way (Jesus) into the kingdom of God.
