FOURTH TRUMPET FOURTH Vial
Rev. 8:12 “And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.”
Rev. 8:13 “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”
Rev. 16:8 “And the fourth angel poured his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.”
Rev. 16:9 “And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”
Now that we are in the fourth year, the Anti-Christ (the Beast) with his mighty army will make war with other nations around Israel with another man referred to as a False Prophet. Before we go there with Scripture, let’s first get an understanding of the ones above; clues that are there to help guide us through this maze. (Woe, Woe, Woe.)
As outlined in the Foreword, these three woes are here to illustrate the order in which John sealed the Book of Revelation. This last three and one-half years of the seven are referred to as the time of “Great Tribulation”. This is one reason why John put these three Woes in the remaining Trumpets – they provide more clues to confirm the Chart, the treasure map that reveals God’s mystery.
I am glad I live in the United States because God’s fury will now start to be released more then any other time in history. Mainly in the Middle East. A drought will occur for the next three and one-half years which will create woe upon the whole earth and the people who reject Christ. They will curse Him instead of turning to Him and asking for mercy. These scriptures in the Trumpet and Vial sound like there will be a lot of fire on the earth beside war.
At this time the False Prophet, referred to as a “strange God,” will do his work more so now than ever before. The Beast will honor this man with silver and gold [wealth of the world] when he attacks many of the nations in the Middle East.
During this period of time the Two Witnesses will start to play their part in a more dramatic way. The Temple will have been rebuilt. These two men have already helped build it, but now they will be given more responsibility. God will give them an anointing and power that few men have ever possessed. They will be the ones who will pour out the plagues in the Vials, a curse that will affect the whole world. They will command the rain and all moisture to cease for the next 3 ½ years. That is why the above Scriptures speak of men being scorched by great heat.
Rev. 11:3 “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand, two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.”
Rev. 11:4 “These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.”
Rev. 11:5 “And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.”
Rev. 11:6 “These have power to shut heaven that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.”
Rev. 6:6 “…see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”
With no rain for 1,260 days, one can see the sun will be unforgiving. With the two Witnesses doing what they have to do, unless you are there at that time, you then would know it has to be done to free the world from Satan.
You will not know who these two men will be until the Israelites start construction on their new Temple. If not then, you will definitely know who they will be when they start to play their part in the middle of these seven years. Notice how they are referred to as (olive trees and candlesticks). These words are clues to their identity along with being described as (oil and wine). Remember? “Oil” means anointing, and “wine” means Holy Spirit? The “olive tree” means Israel, and “Candlestick” is referring to the church (the believers in Christ). These are clues that give indication to their identity. One of the Prophets could very well be Elijah, because Scripture speaks of him coming again before the Day of the Lord (the Seventh Year).
Mal. 4:5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:”
It would be natural for Elijah to play this part, because it was he who cut the rain off for three and a half years during the time when King Ahab ruled over Israel. He was also the prophet who led Israel out of spiritual bondage, where Moses led the Israelites out of physical bondage. And it was he who put the plagues upon Pharaoh’s people and their land so he would let them go. The plagues at that time will be the same plagues that are in the seven Vials. I repeat again. “What was of Old will not be New; it will be of Old again.”
Moses is more apt to be the second prophet than Enoch, which many people believe,
Because Enoch didn’t die, many people believe he is more apt to be the second prophet than Moses. Moses sent the plagues upon the people thousands of years ago, but he did not get to lead the people out of the wilderness into the Promised Land because he disobeyed God. I now believe he will get to finish the task that was given to him before. Both prophets will work together.
The “Waters”, the Two Witnesses will have power over, is referring to people and nations. To “turn them to blood” is referring to war, war that will erupt at this period of time with ten other nations.
Look at your Chart and take notice of how all Scriptures harmonize in each of their respective years and the clues given to guide us through them. Remember the Scriptures in the first year that told you to go 42 months and put the next one there, which then put you in the middle of these seven years where we are now? Notice how they now tell you to go 1,260 days with the next Scripture, which will now take you almost to the end of the seventh year, but not quite. When we get to the seventh year, it will then show what will take place in the remaining days left before the end.
One third of the world will die during this period of time, from famine, pestilence, and the sword (war). We are already coming into the start of the drought that will increase each year. It will cause extreme hardship on the old and the very young. They will not only lack food, there will be no power to cook or keep them warm. The lack of rain will cause drought, floods, and exceptional destruction from hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. All of these are signs God said to look for right before His return.
Mat. 24:3 “…what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”
Mat. 24:7 “…nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilence, and earthquakes, in diverse places.”
When the rain is cut off there will be swarms of locusts that will darken the sky to devour what little vegetation is left. The plague of AIDS will have killed millions, and whatever water people will have will be unfit to drink. Thousands upon thousands of the young and the old will die. The ones who follow Satan in his lust to conquer the world will die by the millions. This will continue for the next three and one-half years. “Woe. Woe. Woe,” all because of the sins of man.
There have been many Anti-Christ’s who have said they were God, but only a few people followed them. When this man says he is God, most of the world will believe him. They will be deceived by the greatest deceiver there ever was, Satan himself, the Serpent that threw the entire world into sin because man wanted to know evil. Man was warned at that time and disobeyed. Man’s wish came true; for almost six thousand years man has been given the opportunity to know him, Satan himself, the spirit of evil; but man has also been given the opportunity to know good (Christ), He who came to take away the sins of man. A price had to be paid that only Jesus could pay, because He was the only One found worthy to redeem us. He was willing, He was able, and He paid the price. He died for our sins. If you wish to have eternal life with Christ and not with Satan, ask Jesus Christ into your heart and He will grant a seat for you to sit with Him next to God Almighty into a sinless realm in heaven.
The army who will be with this Beast will be the most vicious of men. Even women with child will be ravaged and killed for men’s pleasure and their babies slain. God warns them when this takes place to flee into the mountains and not look back, but many will not. Lot’s wife looked back because she really didn’t want to leave; her heart wanted to stay in Sodom. Even today many Christians really don’t want to give up their pleasures; they would just as soon the rapture would not come in their time unless tragedy or sickness befalls them. The United States has been spared compared to other nations. Why? Because she was founded on the Word of God. Satan is the prince of the air we breathe, and the whole world has been affected by him. The world is starving with little hope and many are killed for no good reason.
Now that Israel is born again as a nation and her eyes are now open, all hell will break loose. She has just seen the abomination of desolation take place in her Temple. When the Beast breaks the peace agreement and takes over the Temple there will be a lot of people who will worship him and do his bidding. He will convince them by flatteries. Those who will know he is a liar will escape and flee into the desert, but many will stay and try to help the ones who will not understand.
Ezek. 7:16 “But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valley, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.”
Ezek. 7:18 “…shame shall be upon all faces…”
Ezek. 7:19 “They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord…”
Ezek. 7:21 “And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
Ezek. 7:22 “My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.”
Ezek. 7:24 “Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen…”
Ezek. 7:25 “Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.”
Dan. 11:37 “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.”
Dan. 11:38 “But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.”
Dan. 11:39 “Thus shall he do in the most strongholds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
Where Scriptures refer to the Beast not regarding the desire of women simply means he will ignore what other nations are telling him… He will do as he pleases. He will not take the warning or advice from the United Nations. He will attack some of the strongest nations and defeat them. He will rule over many people, divide the land with this second Beast and whoever will follow him. Many people will believe the Beast is God, and when they are told to make an image of him and worship him. In reality, the image will be Satan. Many Israelites at that time will stay and fight, but will receive very little help. When this takes place, the United States will not be able to help because of the destruction that came upon her earlier when she was attacked.
We will be crippled sometime close to the time of the rapture; we will not recover to help Israel when she will need it the most.
Mat. 24:11 “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”
Mat. 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
Mat. 24: 13 “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
Mat. 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
Mat. 24:15 “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand”
Mat. 24:16 “Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:”
Mat. 24:17 “Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:”
Mat. 24:18 “Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.”
Mat. 24:19 “And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!”
Mat. 24:20 “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:”
Mat. 24:21 “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
Mat. 24:22 “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
Mat. 24:23 “Then if any man shall say unto you, lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.”
Mat. 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders: insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
One-fourth of earth, the area of the old Roman Empire will cry “peace, peace,” where there will be no peace. The descendants of Ishmael, controlled by the Beast, will not be ashamed when they commit the abomination of desolation. They will become quite confident of their victory when they enter and pollute the Temple and not know it was all in God’s plan: To turn Satan’s plan upon himself, to be delivered into God’s hand in Israel (The garden of Eden), the same place Satan started as a serpent and the same place where he will come to his end.
Now that God’s elect have been redeemed, (born again), they are now in the desert where they will escape with the Two Witnesses. For the next 1,260 days these two men will prophecy to them. During this period of time, there will be tribulation upon the whole world like man has never seen before; but for God’s chosen, He will shorten the remaining days and years. These remaining three and one-half years have to take place for Satan to be bound and for Christ to redeem back man, earth, and all creatures into a perfect state with him again. Woe, woe, woe, for the three remaining Trumpets to sound.
Now let’s go to the fifth trumpet and Vial in the-fifth year and look for the second woe.
