The benefit of time and
event in the Bible and the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY for us to know
I n t r o d u c t i o n
The knowledge of “t i m e” of several historical events in the Bible and the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, when they are more deeply investigated, the result would be of more beneficial for us to open our mind. We will be pushed ahead to make a thorough preparation for the more greater events in the future, as those prophesied by the Old Testament prophets and by John the Revelator in his book the Revelation.
The Laodicean people of God are now obliged by the Law to make a thorough preparation to welcome Jesus, first on the Mount Sion in the Palestine, in the year 2027, and later at His second coming in the air, which is to take place sometime in the year 2033. However, how sad it is that these specific “times” have been intentionally concealed from our people by the Organizations, of both those of the General Conference of SDA and their ministers, and the General Associations of Davidian SDA and their ministries, who survived the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955 up to now.
We wish to show you here below several of the “times” in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, which should have been known in our midst, that could have made us more assured of several great events, either those which have been accomplished, or those which are yet to come to pass in the future.
This earth at the beginning of its creation
To get the year of the beginning of creation of the earth, let us read several of Mrs. White statements here below :
“During the first twenty-five hundred years of human history, there was no written revelation. Those who had been taught of God communicated their knowledge to others, and it was handed down from father to son, through successive generations. The preparation of the written word began in the time of Moses. Inspired revelations were then embodied in an inspired book. This work continued during the long period of 1.600 years, -- from Moses, the historian of creation and the Law, to John, the recorder of the most sublime truths of the gospel.” – The Great Controversy, p. 7.
And then from the writing by her husband Bro. James White here below :
“I know that it has been very popularly admitted among Seventh day Adventists, that there is no more anything to be revealed through visions after John had finished the book of Revelation in 96 AD.“ -- James White, A Word to the Little Flock, p. 13.
With the knowledge of the year 96 to be the time wherein the book of Revelation was written, we will then get the year 4.004 BC. to be the year of the beginning of creation of mankind on the earth. The calculation is as follows : 2500 years + 1600 years – 96 years = 4004 years BC. (Before Christ).
Man had been created on the sixth day of the first week of Creation of the world. On the seventh day of the week the Lord God ceased from all His work of creation and took a rest for the whole day. And that is the seventh day of the first week of creation, which is the holy Sabbath of the Lord as that codified in the basic Law of the Ten Commandments. It is to be kept and sanctified by all His people for ever and ever as a holy memorial at every week.
The first year wherein Adam and Eve fell in sin
Mrs. White said :
”Four thousand years had Satan been at work against the government of God, and he had obtained strength and experience from determined practice. Fallen men had not the advantages of Adam in Eden. They had been separating from God for four thousand years.” -- Selected Messages Book 1, p. 280.
Ever since the year of Adam and Eve fell in sin, then for 4.000 years Satan had been at work in his effort to maintain power over this entire world. In the meantime as we all know, the Lord Jesus as our Creator also keeps on strive to get us all redeemed from under the power of Satan. And the only way for Him to get back mankind of His creation, is to bear Himself their death penalty which is the wage of their sins. Thus it is, that as Lord and Creator of men, He should have come Himself into this world of sin, to become an ordinary man of a law abiding citizen of the kingdom of Heaven and the keeper of His own testimony that contains the rules of implementation of the basic Law of the Ten Commandments in the Old Testament Scriptures. Mrs. White then further said:
“In the midst of the week He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.” In A.D 31, three and a half years after His baptism, our Lord was crucified. With the great sacrifice offered upon Calvary, ended that system of offerings which for four thousand years had pointed forward to the Lamb of God. Type had met antitype, and all the sacrifices and oblations of the ceremonial system there to cease.” -- The Great Controversy, pp. 327, 328.
The fall of Adam and Eve in sin would have been discovered as follows : 4.000 years – 31 years = 3969 years, or the year 3969 BC. (Before Christ).
Thus it is, that Adam and Eve should have enjoyed the holiness of life in their Eden home for : 4.004 years – 3969 years = 35 years. And according to their repentance up to the time they died, they would be resurrected in the first resurrection of the saints, at the time of the second advent of the Lord Jesus in the future.
The probationary time for
the inhabitants of this earth to repent of their sins
will be open only up to the year 2031
The servant of the Lord Bro. Victor T. Houteff ever said :
“Why did mankind have to wait 6.000 years before he could return to Eden ? – Because it takes that long to get a large enough number of repentant prodigals, prodigals who have come to themselves, who realize that it is better to be a door keeper in the Father’s home than to be sunk in so-called fun away from His home. God is not taking any of us back into Eden in the state of mind we were born with. No, no more than He took Adam back into Eden in his fallen state. All must come to themselves. “…….Affliction shall not rise up the second time.” Nahum 1 : 9.“ -- Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 1, p. 10.
Read carefully the above statement by the servant of the Lord, and it can be clearly understood, that ever since the fall of Adam and Eve in sin in 3969 BC. the whole people of their posterity should have been also fall in sin. And though then after that Jesus had come to have all His created human beings redeemed from the everlasting penalty of death, and His mission was successfully carried out in the year 31 AD, in the Palestine, the fact is that we are yet to wait. It seems clear, that the time for all the inhabitants of this earth to be free from sin should yet to wait until all the 6.000 years period from the fall of Adam and Eve in 3969 BC. to expire. God has limited the power of sin to dominate men and women on this earth only for 6.000 years, and soon to expire in the year 2031. The calculation is : 6.000 years - 3969 years = 2031 years, or the year 2031 AD in the future.
Due to the fact that the kingdom of Heaven is a law state, then all the problems of sin as the transgression of the law, should unavoidably be settled through an investigative judgment in the heavenly court of justice. No other way could ever be found than this, for only this that was ever informed us through the prophecy. Therefore, through the prophecy of Daniel we read : “AND HE SAID UNTO ME, UNTO TWO THOUSAND AND THREE HUNDRED DAYS ; THEN SHALL THE SANCTUARY BE CLEANSED.” – Daniel 8 : 14.
The angel Gabriel had told to Daniel, that the sanctuary which represents the church of God here on earth would be cleansed through a process of an investigative judgment in the heavenly court of justice. The session would have begun at the end of the 2.300 prophetic days. One day in the prophecy is one year for us. Read : Ezekiel 4 : 6.
N o t e : The prophecy of the purification of the Church to take place ever since the end of the 2.300 prophetic days of Daniel 8 , could now be read in other articles : (1) “Unto 2300 days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed”, Daniel 8 : 14, and (2) “The investigative judgment in the tribunal of the heavenly sanctuary”. Both to be found in the website : www.bible-prophecies.org
Since the end of the 2.300 prophetic days of Daniel fell in the year 1844, then ever since October 22, 1844 the investigative judgment in the heavenly court of justice began its first session on the cases of all those people of God who died ever since the time of Adam. But those who are not God’s people are not to be judged here.
And then comes our turn to be judged, who are now living, who are the Laodiceans of this time of the end, and all those who are to be called out from all the world by the loud cry of the third angel message, up to the end of the probationary time for all the word to repent of all their sins in the coming 2031.
Since the people of God to be purified and saved are not only those from within the Laodicean Church, but even from the entire world, then is fulfilled John’s prophetic statement, when he said :
A. From within the Laodicean Church will be saved only the twelve tribes Israelite of the Old Testament. These are mentioned in Revelation 7 : 4 – 8. In the parables of Jesus they were mentioned as “the first fruits” from the harvest within the Laodicean Church of SDA.
B. From outside of the Laodicean Church will be saved those mentioned in the prophecy of Revelation 7 : 9 in the following words :
“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no one could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.” — Revelation 7 : 9.
These are they the second fruits of the harvest outside the Laodicean Church of SDA, from the entire world. These are the second fruits that would be salvaged by the first fruits of the 144.000 elected saints of the Lord.
Since the angel of the Laodicean Church and his diehard followers were already spewed out of Jesus’ mouth ever since 1935, they all then should have been driven out to meet the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 and Isaiah 66 : 16 – 19. Then will the 144.000 end time Israelites appear to stand with Jesus as the Lamb of God on the Mount Sion. Read Revelation 14 : 1. These are to be fulfilled before the close of probation, because Jesus was yet in His position as the Lamb of God or the Redeemer of mankind. Whereas after the close of probation He should have been coroneted as King of kings and Lord of lords. They, then as the first fruits of the harvest in the Church, are to go into all the world with a very great power of the Spirit of the latter rain, to accomplish the proclamation of the third angel’s message. And then the time of probation offered to all mankind to repent of all their sins, is to close for good and forever in 2031.
Our f a t e as the Laodiceans of SDA at the
commencement of the investigative judgment on the cases
of the living
Since the aim of the coming investigative judgement on the cases of the living is to purify our Church, then when the time comes as those prophesied, the 144.000 elected saints of God , who are to survive alive , would no more have to die here on earth. But all the rest of the living would have to die, to be slaughtered as those prophesied in Ezekiel 9 and Isaiah 66 : 16 – 19, and even in Malachi 3 : 1, 2.
The 144.000 end time Israelite will be then with Jesus to officially establish the so-called Davidic Kingdom of the end time Israelite in the Palestine. And this is the kingdom, which is by Daniel the prophet mentioned in his book chapter 2 as the Stone Kingdom, which was cut out without an helping hand from the great Mountain of brass representing the Laodicean Church. It is the stone kingdom that will develop to become a very great kingdom under the power of the Spirit of the latter rain to dominate all the kingdoms of the world in the future. They will then accomplish the proclamation of the third angel’s message in the whole world in only 4 years to finish in 2031 AD in the future.
And when is the Kingdom of the 144.000 Israelite of God of those mentioned in Revelation 7 : 2 – 8 to be exactly established ? To this, both the servants of the Lord : Mrs. White and Bro. Houteff said :
“When the Son of man rode triumphantly into Jerusalem, they expected Him to be crowned king. The people flocked from the entire region about, and cried, “Hosanna to the Son of David.” Matthew 21 : 9.” – Life Sketches, p. 62.
“The Jews wanted a kingdom of their own, a kingdom of this world (saint and sinner in it). Yes, they wanted a kingdom on earth, but none in Heaven. What is more, they wanted it two thousand years ahead of schedule. Now, ironically, in the time of the restoration of the Kingdom, the Denomination takes an opposite attitude: It wants a kingdom in Heaven, but none on earth.” – Timely Greetings, Vol.1, No. 15, p. 20.
“The apostles positively believed that Christ was to set up His kingdom a t His first advent, but they, too, had to change their belief.” – Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 13, pp. 6, 7.
Every Christian would have known that the above statement from both the servants of the Lord, related to Jesus after His baptism by John the Baptist in the year 27 AD. Houteff said that the Jews in 27 AD. wanted the kingdom to be established too early 2000 years ahead of that scheduled in heaven by the Lord Himself. This is, therefore, could be understood by itself that the Davidic Kingdom should unavoidably be established in the 2027 AD. in the future.
Actually every single Israelite in the world up to this very moment is still holding fast to the promise of the Lord ever given to their ancestors in the following words :
“For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean : from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you : and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. AND YE SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND THAT I GAVE TO YOUR FATHERS (PALESTINE) ; AND YE SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD.”- Ezekiel 36 : 24 – 28 (in the brackets added)
It is impossible for the above promise of God fail to be realized, because the commitment was made not only with Ezekiel, but also with some other prophets, such as in : Isaiah 2 : 2, 3 ; Micha 4 : 1, 2 ; and in Jeremiah chapters 31 – 32. The promise, therefore, shall be fulfilled and shall be immediately realized with the 144.000 end time Israelites, who were prophesied in Revelation 7 : 4 – 8. That is the reason why Mrs. White ‘s calling on us is : “STRIVE WITH ALL THE POWER GOD HAS GIVEN US TO BE AMONG THE 144.000.” – Review and Herald, March 9, 1905.
Let us all strive, Brother and Sister, for possibly we also have the origin of the lineage of Israelite of the Old Testament.
Termination of the court of justice
in the heavenly sanctuary in the year 2031
At the closing of the session in the heavenly court of justice of the investigative judgment, when all the opportunities for men and women to repent of their sins terminated in 2031, then the following announcement from Jesus would be made as follows :
“I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven. An angel with a writer’s inkhorn by his side returned from the earth and reported to Jesus that his work was done, and the saints were numbered and sealed. Then I saw Jesus, who had been ministering before the ark containing the Ten Commandments, throw down the censer. He raised His hands, and with a loud voice said, “It is done. “And all the angelic host laid off their crowns as Jesus made the solemn declaration, “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still : and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still : and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still : and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” “Every case had been decided for life or death.” --- Early Writings, pp. 279, 280.
The above announcement is to be made by Jesus in the court of justice at the end of its last session in the heavenly sanctuary. The announcement would certainly be given to all the inhabitants of the earth, specifically to those who were up to the time not as yet willing to repent.
And for us, though the Investigative Judgment on the cases of the dead were not as yet now accomplished, we have been ever since before warned for always to be in readiness. We must be prepared for the investigative judgement on our cases should have to start in the coming 2027 AD. Those who are to survive in the coming judgment will be sealed with a mark of deliverance from the coming doom as those prophesied in Ezekiel 9 and Isaiah 66 : 16 – 19. And they will be awarded with a new name, which the mouth of the Lord Himself is to pronounce. To this prophet Isaiah said :
“And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory : and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name. Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate …….” – Isaiah 62 : 2.
The heathen and their kings would have witnessed by themselves how great are the righteousness and glory of the 144.000 end time Israelite and even their n e w n a m e in the future. It is now clearly testified, that the coming great and glorious event in the future would have come to pass long before the second advent of Jesus in the air.
That means, long before Jesus’ second coming in the air, this informal coming of His to stand with 144.000 elected saints on the Mount Sion in the Palestine should have first to take place. The Laodicean Church of God should have first to be purified of all the wicked ones in their midst, the third angel’s message proclaimed to the whole world should have been first accomplished, and the harvest of the second fruits from all the world should have been gathered in “ the barn” which is the kingdom in the Palestine. So the Davidic Kingdom with all its citizenship, both from within the Laodicean Church of SDA, who are the 144.000 elected saints of God and those with them, and then from outside the Laodicean Church of the 144.000 Israelites, should have been ready to welcome Jesus and all His entourage from afar off in the sky. Thus it is, that at the second advent of Jesus, all the inhabitants of the world, who want to be saved, should have been gathered and ready in the Davidic Kingdom in the Palestine. And Jesus Himself should have inevitably appeared above the land of Palestine, so that all eyes of His people could be seeing Him from afar off. Read 1 Thessalonians 4 : 16 – 18.
And since the Davidic Kingdom in the Palestine is also an everlasting one, then at the second advent of Jesus, all those and their Kingdom inclusive would be taken to Heaven by the Lord Jesus to reign there with Him for a thousand years.
But how is the f a t e of those wicked ones, who fail their chances to repent from all their transgressions of the Law at the end of the year 2031 AD. in the future ?
The doom of the world in the future
The coming doom of the world in the future is not only a day long, which is only known among us as “the dooms day,” because it will include 7 (seven) great events of catastrophes, as those prophesied in the book of Revelation chapter 15 and 16, which is to last for about 15 months long. John the Revelator wrote it in the following words :
“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues ; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. ………………………….
You are kindly requested to read yourselves both chapters of the Revelation. There are seven wrath of God to be poured out in stages upon all the inhabitants of the earth, who have failed and despised all His offer of mercy and forgiveness as long as the probationary time was open beforehand. The servant of the Lord Mrs. White said :
“It was impossible for the plagues to be poured out while Jesus officiated in the sanctuary; but as His work there is finished, and His intercession closes, there is nothing to stay the wrath of God, and it breaks with fury upon the shelterless head of the guilty sinner, who has slighted salvation and hated reproof. In that fearful time, after the close of Jesus’ mediation, the saints were living in the sight of a holy God without a intercessor. Every case was decided, every jewel numbered. – Early Writings, p. 280.
All the wrath of God would be poured out unto the earth in seven stages for a period of “a time and season”. That is, for a year and three months or 15 months from the close of probation in 2031 AD. up to the second advent of Jesus in the air as those prophesied by Prophet Daniel, and to be revealed by Bro. Houteff in the following words :
“As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away : yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.”(Daniel 7 : 12) Concerning the rest of the beasts --- the lion, bear, and the leopard, their dominion was taken away, but they remained alive, while the non-descript beast came to his end. The beasts that remain alive, represent the descendants of the three ancient empires. While their dominion is taken away, the inhabitants (beasts) are here at the present time. The end of these beasts would mean the end of the world.” --- The Shepherd’s Rod, vol. 2, p. 154.
The world in symbol of the non-descript beast of Revelation chapter 13 would have come to its end in 2031. Whereas the descendant of the three ancient empires beforehand : Babylon, Medo-Persian, and Rome, prophesied in Daniel 7 will be the inhabitants of the earth in this time. Just their lives that shall be prolonged from 2031 for “a time and season” or one year and three months up to the second coming of Jesus. Thus may it be clearly understood that the coming doom of the world would take a period of one year and three months or 15 months in all.
And just after that will JESUS come in the air as King of kings and Lord of lords. He will be accompanied by a retinue of angelic host of millions in the light of glory and greatness which are to be very deadly for them who are not as yet fully repented of their sins.
The second coming of the Lord Jesus
May it be understood, that as soon as all the seven last plagues having been poured out upon all the wicked of the earth, then will Jesus appear from afar in the air. This is to come to pass in the year 2031 + 1 year and 3 months = the year 2032 and 3 months, or the year 2033 in the future. The glorious event of the soon coming of Jesus in the future, has been personally witnessed by Mrs. White in her vision, and has been documented for us as follows :
“Soon appeared the great white cloud, upon which sat the Son of man. When it first appeared in the distance, this cloud looked very small. The angel said that it was the sign of the Son of man. As it drew nearer the earth, we could behold the excellent glory and majesty of Jesus as He rode forth to conquer. A retinue of holy angels, with bright, glittering crowns upon their heads, escorted Him on His way. No language can describe the glory of the scene. The living cloud of majesty and unsurpassed glory came still nearer, and we could clearly behold the lovely person of Jesus. He did not wear a crown of thorns, but a crown of glory rested upon His holy brow. Upon His vesture and thigh was a name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords. His countenance was as bright as the noonday sun, His eyes were as a flame of fire, and His feet had the appearance of fine brass. His voice sounded like many musical instruments. The earth trembled before Him, the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bond man, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains ; and said to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb : for the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand ?” Those who a short time before would have destroyed God’s faithful children from the earth, now witnessed the glory of God which rested upon them. And amid all their terror they heard the voices of the saints in joyful strains, saying, “Lo, this is our God ; we have waited for Him, and he will save us.”
“The earth mightily shook as the voice of the Son of God called forth the sleeping saints. They responded to the call and came forth clothed with glorious immortality, crying, “Victory, victory, over death, and the grave ! O death, where is thy sting ? O grave, where is thy victory ?“ Then the living saints and the risen ones raised their voices in a long, transporting shout of victory. Those bodies that had gone down in the grave bearing the marks of desease and death came up in immortal health and vigor. The living saints are changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and caught up with the risen ones, and together they meet their Lord in the air. Oh, what a glorious meeting ! Friends whom death had separated were united, never more to part.” – Early Writings, pp. 286, 287.
Thus it is, that all the saints and all those who have just been resurrected from the graves, they all will be brought to Heaven to be reining with Jesus there for a thousand years long. In the meantime along the thousand years millennium in the future this earth will be left deserted without any creature to live therein, other than Satan and his angels. Mrs. White said :
“At the coming of Christ the wicked are blotted from the face of the earth --- consumed with the spirit of His mouth and destroyed by the brightness of His glory. Christ takes His people to the city of God, and the earth is emptied of its inhabitants. “Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.” “The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled : for the Lord hath spoken this word.” “Because they have transgressed the l a w s, changed the ordinances, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell are desolate : therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned.” – Isaiah 24 : 1, 3, 5, 6.” -- The Great Controversy, p. 657.
C o n c l u d e d
For the closure I wish to submit to you the following quotations from the pen of the servant of the Lord, Mrs. Ellen G. White, when she said :
“True religion means living the word in your practical life. Your profession is not of any value without the practical doing of the word.” -- Testimonies to Ministers, p. 127.
“Our words and deeds are constantly telling for or against Christ and that L a w which He came to earth to vindicate.”
“God requires that all of us should be self-sacrificing workers. Every part of the truth has a practical application to our daily lives. Blessed are they that hear the word of the Lord and keep it. Hearing is not enough; we must act, we must do. It is in the doing of the commandments that there is great reward.” -- Testimonies, vol. 4, pp. 58 – 60.
