CHAPTER SIX

Over and over again we can see the similarities leading to the final collapse of all things in this old heaven and earth. Yet, the dead cannot discern what is happening. The world goes on without care that soon it must be destroyed by its own hand. We are given a glimpse of these last events from a little understood manuscript found in the desert near the Dead Sea.

In the Dead Sea Scrolls there are prophecies that clearly apply to our age. Jesus said, "When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?" Matt. 16:1-3. Why is it that men are such fools when it comes to reading the signs of the times? History does repeat itself.

The Scrolls speak of a final Jubilee. A Jubilee period is 49 years in the Bible. Ten Jubilee periods make 490 years and four of these epochs or periods makes 1,960 years which constitutes an age of time. The last age, according to Jewish reckoning, began in 34 A.D and ended in 1994 A.D. The final Jubilee period of that age was from 1945 until 1994, or 49 years. The last week of years (seven years) of the last Jubilee period was from 1987 till 1994 from Jewish reckoning.

The true Christian uses a different event for reckoning, than the decree to restore a physical temple. The Christian Jubilee is based on a spiritual temple. There is a different calendar involved, for the Jews already came to the end of their allotted time as the people of God, but it is now the followers of Christ, those who are in the Spirit, who are coming to the maturity of their calendar of time. The prophecy of Daniel 9 regarding the 70 weeks of years, or 490 year period in the Jewish reckoning, was marked by the event of the decree made in 457 B.C. to restore the temple at Jerusalem. The temple and the city were destroyed by Babylon. Each 490 years is called a period, and the fourth book of Ezra in the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha prophesied that after the third period, or after the year 1504, there would be great upheaval, and so there has been.

After that time everything changed, for there followed The Reformation, the great national revolutions, the great world wars, and the moral degradation of all nations. After that time came the Industrial Revolution, and the relatively quiet, peaceful state of man was forever altered.

During the fourth period there would be great upheaval, and in Christianity this 490 year prophecy of restoring the temple of the Spirit began with the decree of Martin Luther, and his making public his 95 Theses against the spiritual Babylon of his own day in 1517. The Roman church had well nigh obscured the true nature of God's Sons living the life of the faith of the Son of God as Jesus had lived it, and had focused on the works of man for salvation as ancient Babylon had done. October 31, 1517, began our modern 490 year period, the decree to restore the true faith to its rightful place. Instead of 1994 when the Jewish age would end, the age for present day Sons of God would end in 2007, exactly 490 years or 10 Jubilees after 1517. Instead of the last week of years being from 1987 to 1994 according to Jewish reckoning, the last week would be from 2000 to 2007.

The Dead Sea Scrolls predict that in that last week of years God's people would come to the place of their patrimony. That is --; those good things predicted for them would come to pass. They would reach the place in their life when "all is well." That is --; they would be made free of the world and made servants only unto God. By the faith of the Son of God within them, they would stand on secure ground. They would come to their patrimony; they would inherit God Himself. On the other hand, the wicked would also come to their patrimony, or come to the place designated for them, and that is "all is hell." We can surely recognize that this is what is happening in actuality.

Let us read it here from the Scrolls:

"I take my text from the Law of the Jubilee. In this year of the jubilee, we read, you shall return, everyone of you, to his patrimony.... "At the final jubilee, therefore, God will in fact be restoring them to what is rightfully theirs; they will indeed 'return, every one, to his patrimony'. As for the allusion in the law of the jubilee (Lev. 25:10) to proclaiming liberation to them, this is to be understood also in the sense that he will remit the full term of the punishment for their misdeeds, for the (Hebrew) word rendered 'liberation' is also a technical term for the remission of debts.

"All this will happen in the final week [2000-2007] of a series of years involving nine preceding jubilees [10 Jubilees altogether]. When, therefore, the scripture speaks of a day of atonement to be observed in the seventh month, on the tenth day of that month (Lev. 25:9) what is meant, in an eschatological sense, is that this final jubilee will be marked by a day on which all the children of light and all who have cast their lot with the cause of righteousness will achieve forgiveness of their sins, whereas the wicked will reap their deserts and be brought to an end.

"This is the era which Isaiah terms the Year of Favor (Isa. 61:2) - that is, the one designed by God's favor, for the King of Righteousness --; which is what, by his very name, Melchizedek prefigures --; to come into his dominion. He will take the lead among God's heavenly saints in executing the various sentences of judgment, as it is said in the songs of David: God has taken His stand in the council divine, among the beings divine, to render judgment (Ps. 82:1).

"...The visitation of which I have been speaking is the same as the day of retribution of which the prophet Isaiah speaks in the words: How fair upon the mountains are the feet of the herald who proclaims 'Shalom! (peace)', the herald of good tidings who proclaims 'Salvation'! who says to Zion, 'Your God has now claimed His kingdom!' (Isa. 52:7), for the word shalom may also be read SHILLUM, 'retribution' as who should say, 'All is hell!' rather than 'All is well!'

"...At that time, it will be from Belial, not from God, that men will turn away in rebellion, and [also] there will be a reestablishment of the reign of righteousness, perversity being confounded by the judgments of God. This is what scripture implies in the words, Who says to Zion, Your God has now claimed His kingdom! (Isa. 52:7), the term Zion there denoting the total congregation of the 'sons of righteousness' --; that is, those who maintain the covenant and turn away from the popular trend, and your God signifying the king of righteousness, alias Melchizedek redivivus (revived), who will destroy Belial. Our text speaks also of sounding a loud trumpet blast throughout the land on the tenth day of the seventh month (Lev. 25:9). As applied to the last days, this refers to the fanfare which will then be sounded before the messianic king.

"When the seal is placed upon the age that is about to pass away [2000-2007], then I will show these signs: the books shall be opened before the face of the firmament, and all shall see my judgment together." 2 Esdras 6:20. Again it is written: "But the day of judgment will be the end of this age and the beginning of the immortal age to come, in which corruption [in God's people] has passed away." 2 Esdras 7:113.

In the fourth book of Ezra, in the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha, Volume One, we can see the evidence of the end. The signs to watch for are now in place. "He answered me and said, 'Measure carefully in your mind, and when you see that a certain part of the predicted signs are past then you will know that it is the very time when the Most High is about to visit the world which he has made. So when there shall appear in the world earthquakes, tumult of peoples, intrigues of nations, wavering of leaders, confusion of princes then you will know that it was of these that the Most High spoke from the days that were of old from the beginning. For just as with everything that has occurred in the world, the beginning is evident, and the end is manifest; so also are the times of the Most High. The beginnings are manifest in wonders and mighty works, and the end in requital and signs. And it shall be that everyone who will be saved and will be able to escape on account of his works, or on account of the faith by which he has believed, will survive the dangers that have been predicted, and will see my salvation in my land and within my borders, which I have sanctified for myself from the beginning. Then those who have now abused my ways shall be amazed, and those who have rejected them with contempt shall dwell in torments. For as many as did not acknowledge me in their lifetime, although they received my benefits and as many as scorned my Law while they still had freedom and did not understand but despised it while an opportunity of repentance was still open to them these must in torment acknowledge it after death.

"But if the Most High grants that you live, you shall see it thrown into confusion after the third period [after 1505]; and the sun shall suddenly begin to shine at night, and the moon during the day. Blood shall drip from wood, and the stone shall utter its voice; the peoples shall be troubled, and the stars shall fall. And one shall reign whom those who inhabit the earth do not expect [the secret hand], and the birds shall fly away together."

This period has seen awesome fulfillments of these things. In the darkness, the sun (Son) shined in His strength. The people of God could be seen in the brightness of the daylight. Even dead wood and stone hearts, would utter the truth, life would come out of them in spite of themselves. There would be great trouble and some who were great lights in the old heavens would fall. They would not stand as light any longer. One who cannot be seen, and no one expects to see, will actually rule, and those who believe that he is, are called conspiracy theorists, for he is in the shade. The "secret hand" will rule behind the scenes, and everyone in his cabal march in step, and fly together, bound in bundles to be burned.

Can we see the revelation of these prophecies? A man would have to be a complete fool not to see what is happening to our world. The ominous signs which increase daily are visible if one has eyes to see. God will no longer uphold the nations and defend the many churches who have taken His name in vain. This last week of years foretells the end of this world's institutions and it marks the strength and power of those who serve God. From that day forward this world's governments and churches have been allowed to fall into the hole of their own making. We can surely see these things involved in the "war on terror."

In both the Jewish reckoning of the last week of years described in the Scrolls, and in the Christian reckoning, are some very ominous events. The Jewish years started with a symbol for us to recognize. On October 19, 1987, the stock market recorded record losses. While this did not end the system, it was an ominous portent of things to come. The conditions that set up that crash of speculation, are now in the markets once again. What it showed was how vain one's hopes are who places those hopes in speculation, since the markets of speculation are owned by others who are not seen. They are owned by the "secret hand." A great and final collapse of finance is soon to come, designed by the very ones who rule the world of money.

In 1989 the Berlin Wall was beginning to be dismantled and the mark of the fall of communism and the reign of capitalism (money) began to complete its dominion. President George H.W. Bush declared his "New World Order." In 1991 the formal dissolution of the Soviet state took place. All this marked a major change in the world order which had existed in one degree or another for centuries.

It was also in 1991 that the United Nations asserted its power and placed itself right in the midst of middle eastern politics, dividing the once united Muslim states. So it is written, "And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas [in the midst of the people] in the glorious holy mountain." Dan. 11:45. George H.W. Bush invaded Iraq in the last week of years of the Jewish Jubilee. This was a precursor of what would come. The Jewish Jubilee was a precursor of the Christian Jubilee and its final years. We were to see many of the same events.

In 1993, the Branch Davidians were attacked, resulting in a destroying fire which left the compound in ruins. Strange as it may seem, this was the beginning of the end for America. It was the portent which showed the actual concern government has for its citizens who seem different. The government "gassed its own people." This is one of the charges against Saddam Hussein for his alleged gassing of the Kurds.

As mentioned before, Josephus recorded the destruction of Masada. This Jewish stronghold was under siege for about as long as was the Davidian compound, and in like manner, it was destroyed by fire.

This was the spark that would kindle a thousand fires around the country. Then, we saw the destruction of a federal building in Oklahoma in retaliation for the destruction near Waco. Since this tragedy occurred, we have seen the evolution of the Militia which is an army designed for the sole purpose of war with the government. After the Militia was systematically discredited, there have been thousands of Web sites created, which constitute a kind of war with the prevailing powers that be, and our political system. The "secret hand" has been universally successful in making American democracy stink. Even Americans are ready for something new, that the "secret hand" intends to offer them.

The last week of years by the Christian reckoning, 2000-2007, is also rich with symbols and it mirrors the Jewish Jubilee times. The most well known of these was the election of one who would invade the middle east again. This is seen in the prophecy of Daniel 11:43-45.

"But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north [Iraq and Iran] shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace [embassy] between the seas (rivers) in the glorious holy mountain [Mesopotamia]; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him."

The prophecy states that there would be one who had power over all the money in the world, and who would be disturbed by news from the middle east. He would invade the land of the "two rivers." He would go in and destroy many. The prophecy also states that he would plant the "buildings of his palace" between the seas, the "two rivers." The new American embassy fulfills the prophecy to the letter. The prophecy states again that tidings out of the north and out of the east will trouble him. Iraq and Iran are north and east of Israel, that nation of Israel being the one for which George Bush fights. George Bush Senior paved the way for George Bush Junior, the events of the father repeated by the son. The prophecy finally states that this man comes to his end and no one will help him, and then there will be a time of trouble such as never was, for Michael stands up in judgment.

In 1987 there was a precipitous stock market drop as was previously mentioned. This was the first year of the last week of years according to Jewish reckoning. The market lost 22% of its value in one day. In the year 2000, there was another precipitous drop beginning in the first year of the final week of years, according to the Christian reckoning. It began after March 10, 2000 which was the high point. By November of 2002, the stock market lost over 9 trillion dollars (that's 9 million, million dollars). That's many times more than all the worlds issued currency combined. These dollars were lost to mostly the common folks. Some lost their life savings, retirement, and the rainy day funds. The very events of the last week of years in the Jewish economy, are mirrored in the Christian economy.

At the time of the destruction of Jerusalem, which was a portent for the end of the world, Josephus recorded that Jerusalem was divided into three factions. Various zealots fought amongst themselves within Jerusalem and also fought the Romans outside the city during the siege. The Jews failed to understand each other and this introduced their own end. Concerning the last days, the book of Revelation speaks, "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath." Revelation 16:19. The United States (that great city) is also divided into three parts, as it is written. There are zealots comprising the conservatives, there are the liberals, and there is the Christian right. The Militia, among others, constitutes a faction of the zealots. These factions are fighting among themselves and occasionally they go out and fight someone outside, such as with the bombing of the federal building.

These ominous tokens are a reenactment of the events just prior to the destruction of the Jewish nation. This city was destroyed because the Jews refused to accept the message of Jesus, and our nation is being destroyed for the same reasons. This last week of years of the Jubilee has sealed the will and determination of God's people, and the will and determination of those who have refused to accept the way of Christ. The last week of years between 27 A.D. and 34 A.D. at the time of Jesus, determined the destiny of the Christian church [cult], and the fate of the city that had rejected the message that Jesus the Christ brought to them.

In this age, the years between 2000 and 2007, the last week of years, determine the destiny of God's church [cult] today and the fate of the nations that have rejected the message of truth which was brought to them. The nations have turned to the earth for peace and safety instead of taking up the cross of Christ, and now their fate is being sealed in their own blood. We shall now see the increased destruction of the nations until there will remain not one person left.

President Bush remarked that when a nation turns its weapons of war against its own citizens it cannot stand. Of course he was referring to the "evil" Saddam, and not President Clinton, when he turned his weapons of war against the Branch Davidians. We are now seeing the dissolving and the falling of our own government as we have seen the fall of the Christian churches previously. In spiritual things the world has been destroyed already. The strong family ties and the strong moral fiber necessary for a strong church and government have been dissolved, just as the Dead Sea Scrolls predicted, and at the time they predicted them.

In regard to God's Sons, it may be asked how they have come to their promised place. Is it not true they are still here? Do they not suffer the mocking jests of the world? What this signifies is that God's Sons have taken the kingdom. The revealing of Christ has caused their eyes to see what supports the nations. In all of this they have been made free. They have come to their patrimony as it was written. God's people will simply do God's will and the nations have nothing to say about it. They have risen, stood up, and will no longer be trodden down by that Wicked one who has so wonderfully boasted over them. The Sons of God will stand free of this wicked age and watch as it tears itself asunder. They are ascending above this dark world and they will not look back. They refuse the mark of the beast. They refuse the number of man.

The world's environment for life has been destroyed by man's own activities. I do not mean merely his physical environment but his spiritual. The apostle Paul wrote: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Man cannot live like animals. Man can only live right if he lives like God, for he is created in the image of God. If he breaks down his spiritual power, he must necessarily cease to exist. This is the process in which we have been involved. It matters little whether or not the physical world turns; what matters is whether or not our spiritual world is turning. That is what constitutes life for us.

It might be mentioned here that this world has always had its wars, troubles and plagues. That is true. One can see how cities have come to their end and entire nations have been destroyed. Now we are in a time when the entire earth is involved in the same struggle. It is not simply an isolated city as was Babylon or Jerusalem when the world had far less population. Now there are billions of us and we are all in the same caldron. The spiritual process is come to its end and it is only a matter of a little time and all of the material form will end itself. This is not a statement of gloom and doom. It is a statement of cause and effect. It is the natural process of what happens when men think the way men think today. It is true that God is dead in the hearts of men today, practically speaking, but God is not dead in the hearts of God's "cultists". He lives, hated by the world, yet all the hatred only serves the purposes of God, for it strengthens the Godly and destroys the wicked and unfaithful.

Everything has its cycle of life. There is a time for everything. Now that the field of this age is harvested with the message of Christ the Messiah, Jesus tells us that the tares are gathered in to be burned. He says, "Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him." Jer. 50:31, 32.

He says, "I will kindle a fire." This is exactly what has been done. A fire burns in the midst of our nation. A terrible scourge of fire is now kindled. All honesty and nobility is thrown to the wind and a torrent of words and accusations is common. "Men speak evil of dignities" without any thought of it at all. They openly curse God, mock Him, and even dare Him to do anything about their rebellion. This is the fire the Scripture predicted would take place at the end of time. It is written, "For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch [no secure place to stand]. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness [Michael] arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts." Mal. 4:1-3.

The hell fire that has been predicted has now entered our world. Men thought it would look like a visible fire, but it is far more meaningful than fire by a match. No, it is fire by soul. It is kindled in the midst because God has been driven from the hearts of men. Society only stands in God. The separation of the harvest is a reality and there remains no hope for the tares being amalgamated into the true church of God. They are gathered to be burned, instead.

We are not told how long this fire will burn. We can only know that it is now burning and it will finally leave neither root nor branch. The world will be destroyed by this fire as we are seeing it burn now. It became obvious in the final week of years what was to transpire. We will now watch and see the increase of fire from the earth and fire from the heavens which will consume all things.

Every terror, every revolution, every plague, every catastrophe, every bomb, every writing which exposes the current order will be recognized for what it is --; the fire that is destroying the world. This is the "revealing" of the "coming" of Christ the second time. Fire from the earth comes in the form of rebellion and violence. Fire from heaven comes in the form of light and truth. Light in great abundance comes to destroy the darkness --; that is the fire from heaven. Just as the Lord said, just when He said it would happen, all things have been judged. It has not been according to our religious and theological bright ideas, it has not been in accord with our great and creative imaginations, but it has been in accord with God's word. It is written, "Just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: and the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues." Rev. 15:4-6. Our time is up. The harvest is in its reality.

The present world crisis is expanding till the entire earth will be involved in a gigantic consummation. This is planned, and not merely a mistake by a stupid world leader. The whole process has long ago been laid out. The Iraqi catastrophe is planned for everyone, finally including Americans and Jews.

The death squads now in Iraq, are not an accident. They were planned. Iraq had a large group of intelligent people, who could think independently and thoughtfully. Many of these were put on assassination lists to bring the country down to a low level of mentality, and servility. These squads were also used to foment internal strife between various religious factions. Civil war was the plan from the beginning by the true occupiers who came to overthrow Saddam.

These principles are planned for Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. After that, the entire earth. The Scriptures plainly lay this out.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Rev. 13:15.

We are now in this time. The cultists who are the powers over money, and the New World Order, now plan to kill everyone who thinks independently and intelligently. We now see it in Iraq, but it is planned for the whole world. The "holocaust" was only a little playing in the sand at a Sunday school picnic compared to what faces man now. The Rwandan genocide was mythic in proportion to what is now opening up into the world.

Over recent years in the United States, there have been a number of unexplained murders of people in high places. They are never solved, but people in the know simply disappear from the public arena. If one does not bow the knee sufficiently, or becomes a threat to the Order, he simply disappears as is written in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

For a time, until there will no longer be any risk in entrusting responsible posts in our State to our brother-Jews, we shall put them in the hands of persons whose past and reputation are such that between them and the people lies an abyss, persons who, in case of disobedience to our instructions, must face criminal charges or disappear - this in order to make them defend our interests to their last gasp. Protocol 8:3.

There are those who earnestly declare that the Protocols are a fraud. Fraud or not, the Protocols tell in plain and explicit language what is now occurring in the world. We have seen these things take place. There is a great fear in the world to point to the secret hand that holds the strings of our government and institutions. America has been ruined by design, and it is too late to change it. The guns are in the hands of the oppressors and there is no earthly remedy. Deceit in government is everywhere, all focused toward the destruction of all forms of stability. It is planned that all of the old order will be wiped away in one gigantic revolution. What the planners do not realize is that they themselves are going to be destroyed also.

The irony, is that the mass of humanity want to blame the current horror on stupid errors of inept individuals in government. Truly, inept individuals may be the public figures in government, but the truth is that all of the civil war, destruction, and murder are the plan. No mistakes are being made. Everything now happening is just right and all is going according to plan. Most of the citizenry however, are completely ignorant of these facts. The citizens are stupid and drunk with the wine of Babylon. They know not what they do or where they are being taken.

Harvest has always been a time of great rejoicing and this harvest is no different. Who would possibly weep and moan over a wonderful harvest? Unless, of course, all you have sown is weeds. But then, if weeds are what one has grown, then why would one not be happy with what he has knowingly chosen? Every man will know the answer to that within himself. It is written: "And he said to me, 'Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy. See, I am coming soon; my reward is with me, to repay according to everyone's work." Rev. 22:10-12.

God's people have entered into their rest. That is --; they have learned to trust Him in all things. They have taken the kingdom. The chaff has been blown to the wind, but the cult (culture) of God stands still (or still stands) and waits upon His daily instructions. The world has passed away in their thoughts and hearts. There is nothing or no one to fight. God's people need not try to convince anyone against their will. Everyone has what he wants. The light has flashed everywhere and all men are acting out their decisions. No man should be disappointed to have received what he has wanted, but sorrowfully men will be disappointed. They will see that their own righteousness has afforded them nothing at all and they have refused the righteousness of God. It is written, "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries." Hebrews 10:26, 27. The worldly cults and all their adherents are consuming together with the earth and its adherents.

"And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: and they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women [turned aside by their marriage connections, family or friends]; for they are virgins [unmarried to the earth and its interests]. These are they which follow the Lamb [Michael] whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men [taken out of the world of men], being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile (lie): for they are without fault before the throne of God." Rev. 14:1-5.

Now is the time when these beings know who they are. The Scriptures do not lie. The 144,000 have characteristics which have come by the faith of Christ within them. They have separated themselves from the women of the earth, relationships that are only brides of Christ by their profession, but not in reality, and have instead, chosen the congregation of God, the congregation of those inhabited and possessed by God. They have the Father's new name written in their foreheads which is THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. These beings follow the Lamb of God who dwells within them wherever He goes. In their mouth is no deceit and they stand faultless before God. This is the church of the Lord's righteousness. This is His cult (culture). It is written: "In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness." Jer 33:16.

We have come to the time when by experience the Sons of God dwell safely. That is to say, their faith is stayed on God. Through experience they have found heaven in the soul, but more than that, they will not be moved from heaven back to earth, whatever the provocation.

These Sons, wherever they are on earth, are one with Christ as He is one with the Father. This is what Jesus prayed for and this is the answer to His prayer. "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of my God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new name." Rev. 3:7-12.

"Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean...Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I." Isa. 52:1,6.

No, God's Sons are not confused as to Who is speaking in them. It is the Father Who speaks. They know the meaning of the words of Jesus when He said, "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." John 14:10. This is now fulfilled in the hearing of all. God's Sons do nothing of themselves, but the Father who dwells in them, He does the works and He speaks the words.

Now the time is come. The people of the earth have been left desolate. They will not hear from the Sons of God again until they can say, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.

Now you have it. Yes, it is finished. There is now no possibility that earthly things could be returned to their right state. Men have compromised, resisted, and disbelieved the Word of God so long they cannot reverse it. Men will not keep God's true Sabbath. They may know how to count to seven and get to church on Saturday, as with some professors, but they do not keep God's true Sabbath which is to always trust and obey God at all times and under all circumstances. God's rest means to tell the truth at all times. The world has heard the truth, but they do not yield to it. Instead, they receive the mark of the beast so that they do not suffer loss or become ill thought of. They stay in their poor dead churches, taught by poor dead preachers, while living in a dead country on a dead earth ruled by dead men. Mankind have taken this road so long they cannot now turn back. They cannot now repent. This is the meaning of probation's close. Now you may understand what the whole battle has been about. I would hope that the reader of this book has been one who has prepared for what he or she must now face --; The Battle of Armageddon! It is the time prophesied when Christ and His people stand arrayed against the world and its corrupt system of things. You may read of this battle in Revelation 19:11-21.

There is a measure of hope in the Scriptures for those who dwell in this age. The Scriptures read, "Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy." Rev. 22:11. That is to say, if you are living according to your best knowledge and have obeyed the Voice of God with all your heart, you will continue to do this. On the other hand, if you are compromising yourself and following practices on occasion you know are not right so that you might receive a measure of peace or fleshly pleasure, you will continue to do that. "Let the evil doer still do evil." The word "let" means to leave them alone, they will not change.

Men have had hundreds of years to change. Men have scoffed and mocked God continually. Men's hearts are continually following after evil and God simply says, "Leave them alone." God does not desert men. What happens is that men become so hardened through resistance that they can no longer respond to God. They only follow a legal religion considering their form of legality as the gate into heaven. Is your heart too hard to respond now? Can you repent of your life? This, you will judge. Right at this moment you will know where it is you are standing. It is written, "The hour of His judgment (crisis) is come." Rev. 14:7. The prophecies are fulfilled. That great wicked kingdom has been exposed as the Scriptures declare. It has been exposed for what it is by the brightness which accompanies the coming of Christ, and God's children are delivered from its deceptions by that brightness. It is finished!

This truth is recorded in the book of Revelation. Chapter ten, starting with verse seven of the book reads, "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." The seventh trumpet is now to sound and this trumpet corresponds to the time of the wrath of God, the seven last plagues. The people of God declare the Battle of Armageddon. They declare the plague of hail when the Word of God sweeps away the refuge of lies. (See Isa. 28:17). The Sons of God are to take a little book and eat it. This little book is now in your hand. While the message in this book is sweet to the taste for a believer, the result of sharing this book with unbelievers is bitterness. Persecution and trial come to those who share the truths found here. Even so --; God's Sons are told to "prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings." This prophesying, according to the Melchizedek text, is for the purpose of judgment and heavenly retribution.

The Battle of Armageddon is now to be fought. God's Sons are standing in array against the world and its sons. The battle lines are marked. You may now know on which side you stand.

Those individuals who compose God's army hear a Voice which says, "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev. 18:4. They come out of all apostate religion and separate from the wickedness of the nations. They do not support them with money or time. There shall now fall upon men a great hail and the hail will sweep away the refuge of lies. "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." Rev. 19:11.
