FIRST TRUMPET and FIRST VIAL
All of the following Chapters land in the first year.
CHAPTER 8:6-7 First Year
CHAPTER 11:1-2 First Year
CHAPTER 12:1-2 First Year
CHAPTER 13:1-2 First Year
CHAPTER 16:1-2 First Year
Now that we are in the first year again let’s refresh our memory as to how John wrote this book (Revelation) as a mystery. Remember how I showed you how to read the Book of Revelation in the Foreword, by giving you a Chart to help guide you by reading Scriptures across (horizontally), the same as in most writings? But this time I am going to expound upon all of the Scriptures that will land in this first year and do the same in the second year; etc. So when you look at the Chart now, you are to read it up and down (vertically). That way it won’t seem like we are skipping around so much but staying focused on all of the events that will take place in this year and forward. I believe it will be easier to understand. So, remember, each column will be representing a year; where before, each line reading across represented seven years.
First, notice how the first Trumpet and Vial are similar. John used special words to show how they are connected, and how they (First Trumpet and First Vial) are both to fall in this First Year.
Rev. 8:6 “And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.”
Rev. 8:7 “The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”
Rev. 16:1 “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.”
Rev. 16:2 “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.”
Right after the seven-year peace agreement is ratified, the Arab community, who supported Al-Qaida -Hamas -Hezbollah, will again take arms against Israel. The trees and the green grass are making reference to people. One-third of them will be killed in this first and second year. The following Scriptures are here to show you how symbols are used to confound the wise.
Is. 40:6 “…All flesh is grass and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:”
Is. 40:7 “…surely the people is grass.”
Judg. 9:8 “The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us.”
Judg. 9:9 “But the olive tree said unto them..,” etc.
There are many words throughout the Bible used as symbols. The words “Trees” and “Grass” are not to be taken literally in these Scriptures, so be aware of them and apply them either as a symbol or otherwise.
One third will die in this first and second year. I know it seems odd that God would use trees to use as an illustration, but He does. I believe this will take place in Israel, for Israel is always the vocal point to look upon, but we in the United States and the other nations will be involved also.
The fig tree and the olive trees are making reference to Israel. Let’s go to the Book of Romans now where it will show the Gentiles as wild olive trees [Rom.11:17-24].
We, as Gentiles, was grafted into the olive tree (Israel). They were blinded by God because she did not accept Jesus as Christ when He was among them. So the Word was given to the Gentiles to spread through out the world
[Luke 3:9; 6:4344; 13;6719; 21:29].
The main thing to remember is that there are a lot of symbolic meanings to God’s Words that you must search if you want to know the truth of the Word. There are many Scriptures pertaining to trees that are symbolic to man, which is a full study in itself. The main point is applying the word tree to when it’s literal or when it is spiritual. You will get to know. A whole new meaning will come to life. A certain kind of tree will always associate itself to a certain Nation. P.S. Talking about trees -How about all the trees that were in the Garden of Eden. Could they of been people?
In Ezekiel chapter 17. Israel is referred to as a cedar tree, where the King of Israel is referred to as a high branch of the tree and the young twigs are referred to as the new generation. They were placed in a fruitful land where Israel became as a big Willow tree with many branches. But the roots turned toward Satan (Babylon). In the seventh verse, it then showed another eagle as a vine that had roots planted in good soil, which turned toward Him that it might bear fruit and be a goodly vine, but it showed that they withered in the furrows where it grew.
This next Scripture is the one that gives you the answer.
Eze. 17:12 Say now to the rebellious house, Know ye not what these things mean? tell them, Behold, the King of Babylon is come to Jerusalem, and hath taken the King thereof, and the princes thereof, and led them with him to Babylon;
The next scripture jumps ahead in time when the Anti Christ will help to bring about the seven year peace treaty.
Eze. 17:13 “And hath taken of the Kings seed, and made a covenant with him, and hath taken an oath of him: he hath also taken the mighty of the land:
Eze. 17:14 “That the kingdom might be base, that it might not lift itself up, but that by keeping of his covenant it might stand.
Eze. 17:15 “But he rebelled against him in sending his ambassadors into Egypt, that they might give him horses and much people. Shall he prosper? Shall he escape who doeth such things? Or shall he break the covenant, and be delivered
Remember Ezekiel ate the book of Revelation, which is telling us that this is what has happened so far. The new generation is Israel who will be deceived. This brings her history up to the start of these seven years, in which these next Scriptures will speak of this man, referred to as a little horn, who will make a covenant with a seed of Israel. Which brings us up to the generation that exists now.
The scriptures In Chapter 17:13-14-15 are giving you a good clue to who will play the part of the second King. Remmember he will be the Anti Christ. He will be one of the eleven horns who are Kings, all from different nations. If we look at ourselves (U.S.) one might question, Are we involved? Is the second King some one we know. Will he play the part as the mediator who will be persuaded to keep the covenant; and by keeping it, Israel would be safe, and that it might stand? But notice in the middle of the seven years he will break the covenant. (Abomination of Desolation). As this play progresses you will be amazed at what you will find.
Eze. 17: 16 “As I live , saith the Lord God, surely in the place where the King dwellth that made him King, whose oath he despised, and whose covenant he brake, even with him in the midst of Babylon he shall die.
Now lets go and find what else will materalize shortly before the Anti Christ steps forth as a mediator for the peace treaty.
Hag. 1:14 “…and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God,”
Hag. 1:15 “In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month…”
Hag. 2:18 “Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it.”
Right here is where Scriptures are letting you know when the church will be raptured. They will be taken within 90 days from when they start the construction. In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, to the four and twentieth day of the ninth month. (Be careful here, you may need to consider the Jewish calendar of months)
Hag. 2:19 “Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth:…”
Is not a barn used to put your harvest in when you gather it? This verse is speaking about God’s barn (heaven) when he gathers his people at harvest time.
The “vine, fig tree, pomegranate, and olive tree,” are referring to Israel, who “has not brought forth,” meaning, the time for them to be in God’s barn was not to be as yet. They will be left behind until the end of the seven years when they, too, will be taken.
Remember how God gave an illustration of how His Kingdom would be made, as when a farmer plants seed in the ground, to be harvested in three stages (Mat. 13:24-25-38)? This seed in the barn will be the wheat, the Gentiles (main harvest); which will fulfill the second watch. If this is correct, then this gives us a good idea of what time of the year and within three months from the time they start the foundation to when the rapture will take place.
The remaining Scriptures in Ezekiel go on to show how the Temple is to be finished. I am sure this new one will be built in the same manner as when Solomon built his Temple, prefabricated and brought in from other areas. In the construction field today buildings can be erected in a very short period of time.
I Ki. 6:7 “And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.”
After the Book of Haggai, the story continues on into the Book of Zechariah. In this Book it speaks of not only what was going to take place at that time but also in the future. When you want to use dates, whose time frame are you going to use? You must be careful here. If you give dates and you are wrong, it will weaken your credibility. To solve this mystery, whose calendar are you going to use? If you are here when it all starts, you will then have a time element to work from.
Zec. 6:12 “And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord:”
Zec. 6:13 “Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.”
The councel of peace will be between the King of Israel and the second King who will play the part of the mediater, “The Little Horn” or the False Prophet.
Zec. 6:15 “And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the Lord, and ye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.”
Now notice, in the fourth chapter of Zechariah how the seven eyes (the church) will be there to help. Also, before they start their Temple, we in the United States will be attacked, but not with a sword or on a battlefield. Remember, at the start of this book it showed the part we (United States) would play throughout this drama and how the first attack came in New York City? It won’t end there. Scriptures indicate that we will be attacked again either right before they start construction on the Temple, or right after. Look at your chart under the first and second year (First and second Trumpets). I believe this is where we will be attacked. (Great Mountain means nation). We will lose 1/3 of our ships on both sides of the earth. East and West coast.
Scripture in this first year has given us a lot of food for thought, but the full picture will not be complete until the ones who will be left behind have gone through these full seven years to the end. We now need to go to Chapter 11. Notice on your Chart how this chapter falls in this first year also. We will pick up the 2nd Trumpet in the second year after all Scriptures are fulfilled in this first year.
REBUILDING the TEMPLE
Book of Revelation Chapter 11:1:2
Remember now, this chapter normally would follow after the tenth chapter from the seventh year, but since we are picking up all Scriptures that fall in this first year you will need to keep close watch, and keep your Chart with you as we progress.
Rev. 11:1 “And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.”
Rev. 11:2 “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”
All of these Scriptures are prophecies, words that speak of the future. Since we are now getting an understanding of where these Scriptures are to go, don’t forget what our goal is. Remember now, we are still looking for the Beast. Notice how these Scriptures in this first year show the Israelites will be worshipping in their Temple while it is being built. This could indicate the construction will start before the seven-year treaty takes place. They will build it over the area of where their previous Temple had stood before it was destroyed; next to the Dome of the Rock (the Moslem’s Shrine). This is why the outer court is not to be measured. The Arabs have been a thorn in Israel’s side for many years, and not until there is some kind of peace between the two, the Holy Temple cannot be built. With events taking place now in the Middle East, and with Hamas and Hezbollah still a threat to Israel, peace is a major priority. When they start to build, it will be close to the time the Beast will start to play his role as a mediator.
The Israelites will not be raptured at this time so one can see they will be busy building on their Temple. They did not know Jesus was their Messiah when He dwelt among them. With Christ fulfilling and becoming the Sacrificial Lamb, there was no need for the old Law (rituals) to be performed again; it was fulfilled when Christ went to the cross. With the Jew’s eyes being partially blinded by God, they are still looking for their Messiah.
Rom. 11:25 “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.”
The Outer Court in these Scriptures is making reference to the grounds next to the Dome of the Rock. Anyone other than a Jew or a Muslem is called a Gentile. “When the fullness of the Gentiles comes in” means, when the Word is spread throughout the world, the Gentiles time will be fulfilled, and they will be raptured.
War will be upon Israel right before or after the peace treaty is accomplished. The Palestinians will not abide by the treaty; they will do the same as when Israel signed her papers of independence in 1948. They instituted war upon her right after the signing. The war was resolved, but with great hostility. They will do the same again. They will continue to be a thorn in Israel’s side for forty-two more months, at which time the Temple will be finished, or close to it.
Dan. 9:25 “…the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.”
Street means Temple. It will be built along with the Wailing Wall during these troublous times. The fighting and hostility that is going on now before these seven years start is growing out of proportion. It will erupt into a full scale war unless somehow someone can bring a solution to their problem. This is where the Beast will play his part. First, I believe there will be a six-month interim before the seven-year treaty is ratified.
There are different books in the Bible that give dates far into the future as to when all of these events will take place, so let’s first look in the Book of Daniel. God gave Daniel the vision of when the daily sacrifices were to be considered. Remember now, what was of old, will not be new; it will be of old again. Even though many Scriptures are a foreshadow, some are meant to be applied for these seven years only.
Dan. 8:13 “…How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?”
Dan. 8:14 “And he said unto me, unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.”
The 2,300 days are the amount of days in between the time the Israelites start their sacrifices at the beginning of the seven years to when the Temple will be cleansed at the end of the seven years. If you are here when the Jews start their sacrifice, you can predict by the Bible when it will be cleansed.
There are many Scriptures that give you a time frame as to when the Israelites will start the foundation of their new Temple, when the Anti- Christ will enter in it and take away their daily sacrifices; etc, mostly in the book of Daniel. So let’s start when the commandment first came forth to restore, and to build Jerusalem.
Dan. 9: 24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city , to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Dan. 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and three score and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
The Prince is the Anti-Christ
Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
Dan. 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abomination he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
“May 14, 1948″ Israel became a Nation, but the commandment for it to materialize took place one year before, “May 15, 1947″. You can find this recorded in the UN Library of Congress, called (U.N.S.C.O.P.) United Nation Special Committee on Palestine. Jerusalem was to be restored and also built for the Messiah (God). Dan 9:25 is speaking of two blocks of time. The first block of time is 49 years (meaning 49 sabbatical cycles) (Sabbath’s Sabbath). The word Restored means Jerusalem and the world was to be returned back to its rightful owner (Jesus Christ) on the year of Jubile which will be the seventh year (The Day of the Lord ). The three score and two weeks is (74) years. The 74 years is referring to the Temple that is yet to be rebuilt. This is the second block of time. These years from May 15, 1947, when the commandment came forth, is when the second temple is to be built again. When you use this time frame and add 74 years on to when the commandment came forth will be the start of the seven years which is the last week of the seventy weeks (490 years). The Temple and the Wailing Wall will be rebuilt again. It then lets you know there will be a rapture here, where it says the Messiah will be cut off (means the Word will be gone.) Then it lets you know the Prince (The Anti-Christ) will confirm a covenant for Israel and Palestine for seven years, but in the middle of the seven years, the Prince will break the covenant. You do not add the two blocks of time together.
Let me say it again. The 49 year time frame is referring to when the Isralities will have there Fiftieth jubile year which will land in the seventh year, Day of the Lord. When the Prince will be, means he will no longer be. Every thing Satan took from us in the garden of Eden will be returned to the rightfull owner when the last Trumpet blows. Which of course will be Jesus Christ, God Almighty.
Lev.25:8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
Lev. 25:9 Then shalt cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
When this takes place Satan , the Prince, (Rev. 12: 7) will war in heaven with Michael for three 1/2 days. He will be cast to the earth. He will then go in fury to take as many in battle as he can for he will know he has but a short time left. If you did not read information on the law of jubile, you need to read it under (Redeemer)
Use discernment here and do your home work. There are a lot of clues here You need to be correct when you interpret what is being said in these Scriptures. I could be wrong.
In the last part of Chapter II second verse, it is letting you know where the next scripture was to go, which would put it in the middle of the seven years. We will not go there at this period of time because we are looking at all of the scriptures for each year, before we go to the next year etc.
Let’s now go to Chapter 12 that falls in this first year also, to find who the woman will be who is about to give birth.
WOMAN WITH THE MOON, SUN, AND TWELVE STARS
Book of Revelation Chapter 12:1-2
Rev. 12:1 “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:”
Rev. 12:2 “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”
Remember now, we are still in the first year. This chapter is showing the part that Israel will play in this drama. She is being shown as a woman in pain with child, waiting to be delivered. With war upon her in this first year, she is crying out to the Lord to deliver her. At this time she does not know when her deliverance will come. She will struggle to survive until the middle of the seven-year period when she will be born again as a nation, the same as anyone who has accepted Christ’s Spirit to live within them.
The moon, sun, and twelve stars are words to let you know the word “woman”, is referring to Israel. The “twelve stars” is making reference to twelve brothers. The youngest was Joseph who had a dream that the sun and the moon and eleven stars were going to bow down to him. When you read of this story, you will find eventually his brothers did look up to him, he became an anointed man of God and the eleven brothers along with Joseph became the Twelve Tribes of Israel. As you can see, the word “woman” in these Scriptures is pertaining to Israel.
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
Being the Jewish people missed the Messiah when He was among them, she (Israel) is still waiting for His return. God uses the illustration of woman’s natural birth in this chapter to show her pain will come upon her more each year. It will continue throughout the next two years with her pain becoming stronger and stronger until she gives birth. She opens her womb and brings forth her deliverance in the middle of these seven years. She as a nation will be born again.
With war upon her in this first year it will put quite a burden on her. The plagues will also be upon the whole earth. Since she will now be under the influence of the Beast; she needs to know who he is and how he wants to deceive her. The next verse that falls under the second year will reveal more clues. Not only does this first and second verse in this first year show the part that Israel will play during this time, it then shows in the second year the part that Satan will play as a dragon. Remember? He will take up his abode in this Beast and start his performance in this first year. He will be the one who will cause the war to erupt in this first year and the start of Israel’s birth pains. Let’s go on now and pick up Chapter 13 that falls in this first year also.
SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS
Book of Revelation Chapter 13:1-2
Rev. 13:1 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
To find the meaning of what John is describing we need to go to the books of Daniel and Ezekiel. They will show where the area this Beast will come from. This particular Beast is the Anti-Christ we have been looking for. This man is called a Little Horn who will rise up among ten other horns ( men). They will gather for the peace the world has been unable to achieve for many years. When this takes place, it then opens the door for this first year to start.
Most words referring to (sea or water) means people, multitudes, nations, and tongues (Rev. 17:15). When you read the word (beast) in Revelation, it is speaking of two evil men, but when you read it in the Book of Daniel, the word (beast) is making reference to four past empires. In (Rev. 4:6) God’s Spirit is referred to as four (Beasts). There are many symbols one has to watch to know when they have a duplicate meaning. The word horn means (king), one of authority. Most of these symbols God has explained in other parts of the Bible.
Rev. 17:12 “And the ten horn which thou sawest are ten kings…”
Dan. 7:8 “I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.”
Rev. 7:20 “And the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.”
All of these Scriptures in different books are speaking of the same man, the Beast. When he first starts to play his role, you will then know who he is. I believe there will be a six month interm before the seven-year treaty starts. This man is here now, but until he steps forth and takes his position, we will not know who or where he is. By the time you go through these seven years in this book, you will have a good Idea. The Ten Horns that will be with him will be an assembly of ten men who will represent a league of nations to ratify the treaty. When “three of the horns fall,” means their vote will be overturned (vetoed) or they will abstain as Australia did at the last gathering for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
Rev. 17:12 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”
Rev. 17:13 “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
Rev. 17:14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them… and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
These ten men will give their power and strength to the Beast at the end of the seventh year when Christ returns with all of the saints to put an end to all evil. They will be in complete agreement at this latter time compared to when they will not be in agreement at the beginning of these seven years. War will erupt right after Israel signs the peace agreement.
This man will manipulate these ten men by deceiving all of them as to his overall plan by using their power to achieve his goal. Satan’s spirit in this man will rule over them as he did during the second and third centuries. During the time when the church of Smyrna exited, there were ten kings who were the cruelest of all kings to the Jewish people. The Tribulation that is yet to come will far surpass the persecution that was on the people who lived during that time.
When he takes his position it will be the same as when Israel and the Palestinians gathered in 1948 for the two unities to become independent states of their own. At that time the Arab community rejected the terms of the committee, so they did not achieve what they were striving for. Only Israel became a nation at that time. Right after it was accomplished, the Palestinians invaded her again, creating a holy war upon the land. They will do the same again.
At the time when Israel became a State, the mediator for Israel and the Palestinians was Count Folke Bernadotte. With the Palestinians attacking Israel right after the treaty, he tried to bring peace between the two groups, but he was killed. After the Palestinians assassinated him, Ralph Bunche then became the mediator, but for only a short time. Scriptures indicate this estate will be fulfilled again by this Beast when he comes forth and takes the same position as the two mediators before him. This will then be the start of the seven years. When this man takes this roll as an arbitrator he will come in peacefully and act as a holy person, saying and doing all the right things to win the people into believing his lies; to be able to rise in power as king in the kingdom.
When Daniel wrote of these events it was given to him as in a vision. Gabriel, the Arch Angel then showed him the understanding which I am going to show you. This will help you to understand why I said he will be a mediator for this peace treaty. You will then know where I am coming from when I make that statement. In the following Scriptures I will insert history that was written and recorded in the UN Library of Congress. The name it was given was, (United Nations Special Committee on Palestine) “UNSCOP”
Dan. 11:14 “And in those times (year of 1947), there shall many stand up (United Nations), against the king of the south:(Egypt), also the robbers of thy people (Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Syria), shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; (To terminate the mandate Britain had over Palestine, and for Palestine to be an independent federal state), but they shall fall.” (Their terms were rejected by the assembly).
Dan. 11:15 “So the king of the north shall come (Britain), and cast up a mount (Hold a special session), and take the most fenced cities: (The most powerful of Nations to form a committee), and the arms of the south (Egypt), shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, (Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Syria), neither shall there be any strength to withstand.” (The special committee rejected the inclusion from the Arab states, which was to terminate the mandate the United Kingdom had over Palestine, and to declare her independence)
Dan 11:16 “But he (Arab States), that cometh against him (the newly formed assembly, called UNSCOP), shall do according to his own will, (The Arab states challenged the new committee on the terms of Palestine, warning them their terms of reference would not aid peace in the Middle East), and none shall before him: and he (The Anti-Christ, The Beast) shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.” (During the time of the seven year peace treaty is when this Beast will conquer and rule in Israel). (The request from the United Kingdom, asking for a special committee to study the Palestine Question, was the commandment spoken of in Daniel 9:25.)
Dan. 11:17 “He (Iran), shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole Kingdom, (Muslims), and upright ones with him; (The upright ones with him were the 10 other members of UNSCOP, formed May 15, 1947. (Australia, Canada, Sweden, Guatemala, Czechoslovakia, India, the Netherlands, Peru, Uruguay, and Yugoslavia), thus shall he do: (Iran), and he shall give him the daughter of women (Australia), corrupting her: (Trying to persuade her to vote his way on the minority plan and not on the majority plan), but she (Australia) shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.” (Australia abstained from voting on either plan).
Dan. 11:18 “After this ( Meaning all events after May 14, 1948, the date when Israel became a nation and the British mandate expired) shall he (the Arab states) turn his face unto the isles, (They took up military action on the coastline of Palestine), and shall take many: (Many Jewish people were killed), but a prince (Mediator, Count Folke Bernadotte) for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; (Count Bernadotte issued a cease fire order and warned that all military action was to stop or they were to pay the consequences), without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.” (With the mediators warning that both the Arabs and Jewish authorities would be held responsible for any violation of the truce; in turn brought destruction upon himself)
Dan. 11:19 “Then he (Count Bernadotte, the mediator) shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: (The Israel held sector of Jerusalem), but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.” (Count Bernadotte and Colonel Andre Serot were shot and killed).
Dan. 11:20 “Then shall stand up in his estate (Ralph Bunche who succeeded Bernadotte) a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.” (Before Count Bernadotte was killed he had prepared a report to raise contributions, a special fund to aid the Palestine refugees. The general assembly advanced five million dollars and urged all countries to contribute. Second mediator, Bunche, was then relieved of any further responsibilities)
Now notice in the next Scripture it jumps from history that has already been written, up to the time now of when the Beast will take the same position (estate), and will accomplish the enactment of the treaty which is to last for a week (7years). But in the middle of the seven years he will break it.
Dan. 11:21 “And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, (the Beast), to whom they shall not give honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.”
Dan. 9:27 “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 year peace treaty): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease…” (In the middle of the seven years he will stop the daily sacrifices, take the Temple and say he is God).
Dan. 11:22 “And with the arms of a flood shall they (The Israelites) be over flown from before him, (they will escape out into the wilderness from the Beast), and shall be broken (Treaty will be broken in the middle of the seven years); yea, also the prince of the covenant.” (The prince will be the Beast, the Anti-Christ)
Dan. 11:23 “And after the league made with him (treaty is ratified by the Beast) he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.”
The UN General Assembly has been trying for years to bring this treaty about but to no avail. Even though Israel came into her land in 1948, the outlying countries still deny her the right to exist. Even in 1920, there was a ten member peace party established in San Remo to try to give the Jewish people a national home at that time. Wars and riots continued over a vast period of time, denying her the land and the peace that God had promised her. Not until these seven years are fulfilled and she is home in heaven, will she have peace.
When the General Assembly established the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) on May 15, 1947, it consisted of an eleven-member Truce Commission: Australia, Canada, Guatemala, Czechoslovakia, India, Iran, the Netherlands, Peru, Yugoslavia, Sweden, and Uruguay.
At the time when these countries voted on the majority proposal, or the minority plan to bring about the settlement for Israel’s right to exist; seven of the countries voted on the majority proposal, recommending the partition of Palestine into two independent states: a Jewish state and an Arab state. Jerusalem was to be placed under the International Trusteeship System with the United States as the Administering Authority. The three entities were to be linked in an economic union. The minority plan, submitted by India, Iran, and Yugoslavia, proposed an independent federal state, consisting of an Arab state and a Jewish State, with Jerusalem as its federal capital.
Australia abstained from voting on either plan on the grounds that the recommendations exceeded the committees term of reference.
On September 23, 1947, the ad hoc committee heard views of the three parties: the United Kingdom (as the mandatory power), the Arab Higher Committee, and the Jewish Agency for Palestine. The Arabs of Palestine were solidly determined to oppose with all the means they had any scheme that involved the dissection, segregation, or partition of their country or which gave a minority any special or preferential status.
The Jewish Agency for Palestine stated that, if acceptance of the majority plan of the Special Committee would make possible the immediate reestablishment of the Jewish state with sovereign control of its own imagination, then the Jewish agency would recommend the acceptance of the partition solution. Ten of the eleven members representing their kingdoms [countries] are the upright ones the Scripture is referring to. The one that sets his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom means that one member, probably Iran, came that had the power to do as he pleased, in which he tried to persuade Australia to vote his way, but instead she abstained and voted neither for him or against him.
On November 29th, 1947 it was voted that the majority plan would be adopted. The British Mandate over Palestine would terminate and the British armed forces would be withdrawn as soon as possible.
At the time of May 13, 1948, one day before Israel was established as a nation, the General Assembly appointed a United Nations Mediator for Palestine, to relieve the Palestine Commission (UNSCOP) of its responsibilities and to assure that his office would protect the holy places, promote a peaceful adjustment, and cooperates with the Truce Commission. On May 20, Count Folke Bernadotte, president of the Swedish Red Cross, was appointed as Mediator.
On May 14th, 1948 the mandate of the United Kingdom over Palestine expired, and a Jewish state was proclaimed under the name of Israel. On the following day, the Arab states instituted armed action in Palestine.
On May 22nd, 1948 the Security Council called on all governments and authorities to abstain from hostile military action in Palestine. A week later it requested the observance of a four-week truce. The Security Council appealed to the interested parties to accept the truce for such a period as might be decided on in consultation with the Mediator. The Provisional Government of Israel agreed to extend the truce, but the Arab states refused and hostilities broke out anew.
On August 19th, 1948 the Mediator, Count Bernadotte warned that both Arab and Jewish authorities would be held responsible for any violation of the truce.
On Sept 17, 1948, Count Bernadotte and the chief of the French observers, Colonel Andre Serote, were shot and killed in the Israel-held sector of Jerusalem. This brings us now to the eighteenth verse in Daniel, where it shows these events taking place. What this verse is saying, the Arabs attacked the Israelis in the area of the coastline and took many in battle, but a commander [Mediator] warned the Arab states to cease their insolence, to end their fighting, or be held responsible for the violation of the truce, but it in turn brought death upon the Mediator, Count Bernadotte, instead.
After this took place, large scale fighting broke out. A new acting Mediator, Ralph Bunche, was appointed to negotiate a cease fire and to seek an agreement. This was accomplished February through July 1949 with a mixed Armistice Commission. After the armistice, Bunche was relieved of any further responsibility as acting Mediator. During the short time he was acting as mediator, he brought about a report that was prepared by Count Bernadotte before his death. It consisted of provisions to establish a conciliation commission, protection of the holy places, and further steps to be taken by the Security Council, plus compensation for the resettlement and economic and social rehabilitation of the refugees, which began in November 1948, when the General Assembly authorized the advance of $ 5, million dollars toward this special fund.
This brings us to the twentieth verse in Daniel, showing that this special fund was what was referred to as the taxes that were raised for the kingdom. It was brought about by the second Mediator, Ralph Bunche, who stood up in the position [estate] of the first Mediator, Count Bernadotte. When it refers to him being destroyed in a few days, not by anger nor in battle; it means Ralph Bunche, who was acting mediator for only a short time, was relieved of his duties. This is what it means when it refers to him being destroyed, meaning, no longer needed or existed.
When reading history, it clearly shows what estate the Beast will come out of. It will be the same position the other two men had as Mediators to the Security Council. In Nahum 1:11, he is called a wicked counselor. With him not receiving the honor of the kingdom at the beginning, it shows that he will at a later time by winning the people over by flattery; a person with great intelligence, speaking great things, and having the appearance of an overpowering, strong, drawing personality that people will look up to, saying “We will go with you, for we have heard God is with you.”
History will take place again when the Beast takes this position with these ten men, men from different nations as they did before. You will find the complete story of these Scriptures in history written from 1945 – 1965. It is called “Everyman’s United Nations”. Recorded in Washington D.C. at the Library of Congress (Questions Relating to the Middle East.) In this book it shows when the commandment came forth to when the UN Security Council was to start work on resolving the Israeli’s and the Palestinian’s controversy: For both of them to become a nation of their own. I received this document when I called and asked for it. This is what I am sharing with you so you can understand the above Scriptures. If you wish to confirm the interpretation, ask for UNSCOP (United Nations Special Committee on Palestine).
On May 14, 1989, Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir drafted a peace plan. It was made public and the Palestinians called for elections to negotiate with Israel on an interim five-year period of self rule for the 1.7 million people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It was reported that the important key was to keep the proposal moving and to find a partner for the negotiations. When this transpires I believe this is how it will be again, but at this time the interim period should be six months according to Scriptures. It also stated that no later than three years after the interim arrangements are implemented, Israel and the Palestinians would open a second round of talks on the final status of the territories captured in the 1967 Arab – Israel War. It also stated that there will be ten voting regions, not knowing yet whether the elections will be “municipal “or “political.” So far it has not materialized.
When the ten members of the voting regions come together again for this treaty, look up, because your redemption will be right at the door. Israel is God’s time clock for the whole world. Now that we have gotten a good idea of who the Ten Horns could possibly be and the Little Horn, let’s go to the next Scripture in this first year to find the meaning of what John is describing as a Beast, which in turn will tell you the area he will come from.
Rev. 13:2 “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”
The animals are symbolized as seven past empires, but also described as a statue. They illustrate their character and to where they were located and where they will originate from again. Each animal, as you read of them, will have the strength to destroy; each one overpowering the other.
The first Empire, Babylon, was described as a lion with a head of gold. A lion’s power is in its mouth. It will rip and tear to devour its victims. At one time a cougar came in our barn during the night and did this to one of the young animals. It tore it apart, but left the head and one leg. Two days later it came back for the rest. It used its teeth to rip and tear, to take the first part.
The next empire was Persia described as a bear, with the chest and arms of silver. A bear’s strength is in its feet. At one time I encountered a bear in the woods; it sounded like he was breaking trees and everything before him to make his exit away from me, fortunately for me. Another time, one used his paw to take a good part of flesh out of the rump of a newborn foal. Laying of hands on her, she was healed. A bear’s strength is in its feet, to crush and break.
The next Empire was Greece, described as a leopard with the belly and thighs of brass. A leopard is like a cougar who will stalk you, waiting for the opportunity to strike. While riding in high country I was very aware of their presence and they are very aware of the difference between you and your horse. For some reason they do not want the horse; they want you. This empire, Greece, was governed by Alexander the Great, who lived only a short time; then his kingdom was divided among his four generals, which then became Greece, Asia, Syria, and Egypt.
The Roman Empire was the seventh, which was described as a monstrosity with its feet and legs of iron and clay, meaning it became weak in time, and then no longer existed. An unidentified beast fought viciously to survive when it was cornered in a web of our fencing, literally tearing it totally out, plus killing cattle while doing so. By performing an autopsy on the cattle, it was shown they were battered to death.
Each one of these animals represents power and will strike at the weaker being to achieve their goal. This is what these past Empires did to one another. Each one devoured the other until they all became one (The Roman Empire). This is what the Beast will try to do again. When you read of these empires in these Scriptures, remember to keep them in order so you will have the understanding of what the Scriptures will be showing you. When Daniel speaks of them, he sees them from the time he existed. He is looking forward from the time of Babylon. But when we perceive it in Revelation 13:2, it is in reverse. John sees them looking back from the time of the Roman Empire when he existed.
The Roman Empire was the largest of all, and it took in most of Europe at that time. This will be where the ten men representing their region will come from [a quarter part of earth] [Rev.6:8]. If you were to look at a map of the size of Israel, compared to all of the other nations surrounding her, only God could have a hand on such a small nation for it to prosper, but yet to also be a thorn in the side to many nations about her.
Rev. 13:2 BABYLONIAN EMPIRE 625-539 B.C. Dan. 7:4 First Beast (Lion)
Dan. 2:32 Head of Gold
PERSIAN EMPIRE 558-330 B.C Dan. 7:5 Second Beast (Bear)
Dan. 2:32 Chest and arms of silver
GREEK EMPIRE 333-330 B.C. Dan. 7:6 Third Beast (Leopard
Dan. 2:32 Belly and thigh of brass
ROMAN EMPIRE 31 B.C. TO 476 A.D. Dan. 7:7 Fourth Beast (a Monstrosity)
Dan. 2:33 Feet and Legs of Iron & Clay
When you look at this as a picture, the Word describes it as a statue and also as an animal. The clay mixed with the legs and feet represents the Roman Empire, which became weak in time, and then no longer existed. The two legs could mean the dividing of the regions where these ten men will come from. The ten toes represent the ten horns that will rise up within it again in this area. The stone that will smite the image on the feet represents God who will destroy them at the end. Now let’s go to another chart that will help give even more understanding of these seven past empires, and how they relate to us today. Follow along in your Bible.
Rev.17: 7 Mystery Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots And Abomination of the Earth. I will tell the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carrieth her, which hash the seven head and ten horns.
Rev 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not;
Rev17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom, The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
Rev. 17:10 “And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”
Rev. 17:11 “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven,”
Greece was the first to make up the seven heads. Alexander the Great was the king of this kingdom and when he died, his kingdom was divided into four. Daniel 8:8 speaks of Alexander’s death. [When the horn was broken, four noble ones came upon his place: Egypt, Syria, Asia, and Greece]. These make up the four.
The next in line was Persia, which makes up the five. “Five are fallen.” This means they fell under the power of the next kingdom, which was “Babylon.” Babylon is referred to as “one is,” which is the spirit of Satan, the woman as the whore that sits upon all nations (Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth). The Roman Empire is referred to as “and the other is not yet come” meaning the Little Horn, the Beast, has not yet come into his position.
The Beast “that was” is referring to Judas Iscariot who had Satan in him. “And is not,” means Judas exists no longer but a replica of him (the first Beast [Rev.13:1) will appear again as the Little Horn (with Satan in him), which will be the eighth and is of the seven, who will go into perdition. The Beast will be the Anti-Christ, Son of Perdition, Little Horn, and Spirit of Babylon, all symbolic of Satan the destroyer. Now, it’s important that you remember that this man will be the only other person that Satan will take up his abode in, other than Judas Iscariot. Now you will understand when it sounds like two people speaking out of one person; you will know who they are.
The Beast will have his False Prophet to do his bidding the same as the general of the Assyrian King, who is referred to in these Scriptures also as a man of war. At this time, this Anti-Christ, the Beast, will come in as a lamb and promise the Jews the same thing what God promised them, and will do just the opposite of his forefathers (The Assyrian’s). II Kings 18:13 or Isaiah 36-37
Dan. 11:24 “He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his father’s fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.”
Did not these Scriptures just show the Beast’s forefathers were Assyrian? And that he will do just the opposite of them? Instead of taking the silver and gold from the Temple in this first year, he will take it from the rich and give it to the poor. Remember, in the third Seal, it spoke of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? With him giving to the poor, we can see here his devices will be different from any other king of Assyria. He will be winning them with flattery so he can rise in power deceitfully with a few people. While he is doing this, he is planning to overthrow the Temple and set himself up as God. They will come to take a spoil for themselves, which is just the opposite of what this man; the Beast will do, so you can see why the people will cling to this man, who is a Jew, with Assyrian forefathers.
Zec. 8:23 “Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.”
God has revealed many clues for us to be aware of this man. One of the clues is: he will be a Jew, His forefathers were Assyrian, his garment will be a skirt (a robe), plus he will come out of the area of the old Roman Empire. He will have seven heads (seven Arab nations) and ten horns (a peace counselor with 10 Nations) preparing himself to fulfill prophesies that only those who will be left behind will see. With him being a Jew, don’t look for one that says he is. He will be one like Pope Francis, who is a Jew, but does not declare it. He is a Jesuit who was a Jew first.
Dan.11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honer of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the hingdom by flatteries.
Dan11: 22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.
Dan11:23 And after the league made with him he shalll work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become stronge with a small people.
If you are here when the Beast plays his part in this these seven years, you will be one of a few that will not be deceived by him. Reading these scriptures and believing they were written for you, you will know what you will have to do. It will be a rough time for you. But hang in there. God knows and He cares.
Dan.11:32 “…the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Dan. 11 33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Read the remaining scriptures in Daniel 11:24 to the 36 verse. It will fill you in to what will take place up to the middle of these seven years. Then the remaining scriptures will fill in to what will take place in the remaining years. Then in the 12th chapter when Michael stands up you will see a rapture for the end ones. They will go at the same time the two witnesses go, this will be when they are killed toward the end of the seventh year.
All of these Scriptures we have just studied for this first year show when the war will take place, when the Temple is to be built, and when they will start the Temple sacrifices. This leads us into the second year, but first let’s pick up more insight on the seven heads. We would not have been able to understand God’s wisdom here if we did not perceive an understanding of Satan and his plan to deceive man. When the Beast takes control in these seven years, will it be as when Constantine the Great ruled; state and church become one? Remember, 50 % of the church will be raptured before this Little Horn comes on the scene. So, will Satan have full control over the church of who is left, and will he have that much power over the nations?
The churches that recognize Jesus Christ as Lord have always had power in the world. They have kept Satan from having his full control. With the church gone and the buildings and tares left, you can see he will not only have control of what he had before; he will have what is left of the church to control and the state, which he will try to control during these seven years. I am sure that if this is the way it will go; most of the people who do not know God will be deceived by his flatteries and go right along with this man.
Satan’s overall goal has always been to exalt himself higher than God. He will deceive man into believing that he is God in this Anti-Christ (the Beast), in the middle of these seven years. All through Scriptures, the Word has shown that he will try to be a copycat of Christ. Will the seven heads be empires or will they be his church that the spirit of Babylon will sit upon with the name of blasphemy written on the foreheads?
Rev. 17:9 “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
In this particular Scripture, you need to use a lot of discernment, because it is telling us to use some wisdom here. The woman this Scripture is referring to is the great whore, the spirit of Satan who represents all wickedness. The mountains I believe represent seven nations (seven heads). Today, Rome is where you will find the seven mountains broadcasted as an emblem, representing past history.
Ten men out of ten regions will unite with this one man into one union to destroy Israel, even though they will hate the whore (his doctrine). Some say these ten men will represent the European Common Market, which controls import and export. Some say it will be a one world church, and others say it will be a “confederated world of arms to control the earth”. I feel the main thing that we need to know is to have a little insight into God’s Word for us to be prepared. Don’t be caught off guard by Satan’s trap.
As we progress toward that time, it will reveal itself. As long as we know Satan is the mastermind of it, then we know it is what he has always wanted. He will try his best right up to the end to achieve to be God in a man, to control the whole world. He wants God’s seat and power. Thank God he won’t make it, because God is greater than he who is in this world.
You must remember when you read what I have written in this first year to use a lot of wisdom from God and search Scriptures for yourself. I could be wrong and do not claim I am absolutely right, but at this time, this is how Scriptures read to me. Let them probe you into proving my conclusions wrong or right by searching the Word for yourself (just yourself and God).
Use the King James Bible. I found when other Bibles were published after the King James Version; they lost important words and the meaning of them. Chapter 16:1-2 (1st Vial). This is the first Vial, which was expounded upon under the 1st Trumpet. Let’s now go on to the second year and start with the Second Trumpet and study the Scriptures for that year.
You just finished First Trumpet First Vial in Chapter 8 &16 of “Beast -vs – Suvivor” or “Hidden in Plain Sight”
