Elder Walker a servant of Jesus Christ to the saints and the elect according to the foreknowledge of God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a much lively hope by the ascending of Jesus Christ into the heavens.

And may the grace, mercy and the love of Jesus be upon all as we are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. A time when God in the visible image of Jesus Christ shall reign with His saints upon the earth. A time preceding this reign that will be filled with great tribulation and distress in all the lands of the earth. That you might be informed; that this last time shall not come upon you as unaware; I find it needful and a very good thing; to write you this epistle and explain to you this last time and of all those things which must soon come to past.

Now, be aware that this last time shall not be a subjection to the great tribulation that shall prevail upon the people of the earth for the saints of God; for it is written: And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke 21:28) We are told by Christ our Lord that when we see those things that are going to distinctly identify this last time begin to happen our redemption is at hand; And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand (Luke 21:29-31). And upon the beginning of those things which will mark this tribulated times that generation will have the honors of being the recipients of this last time wrath of God. Which will be upon all the inhabitants of the earth. (Read Luke 21:32) Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Now there are reasons according to Godís purpose why this generation must endure all of the wrath of God and witness all that will take place in this end time period. Jesus Christ was so adamant about this and His own words reflected just how serious His prophecy was (Read Luke 21:33-36) Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and [so] that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Here we have Jesus telling His Apostles (And they Are The Embryos of the NT Church At This Time) that in this last time all of these things are going to come upon all the inhabitants of the earth and there is no way to escape it because His word cannot fail. However He says to the Church that if it watches and pray and not be carried away by the things of this world it will be counted worthy to escape and will be able to stand before the Son of Man. He tells the Church to Pray always, that it may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass. Now if the church has been judged worthly to escape all these things which will come all that are on the earth during this time of great tribulation, then the Church is some place other that the earth, standing before the Son of Man. The Church has escaped to stand before the Son of Man to a place other than the earth as Godís wrath is not going to be poured out upon the Son of Man and His Church. (We will go get bible for this later on in this epistle; just remember, OK?) No sir, God cannot pour out His wrath against Himself and against the righteousness that is of Jesus Christ; the Church. Therefore the church cannot be on this earth during that great tribulation period; that is the three and a half years part when Godís wrath is poured out upon the earth. Just as the Lord Jesus said so shall it be: (Luke 17:26-30)

"And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed". And about this time of old when God was set to destroy the whole world and all living He said: (Genesis 6:7-8)

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. Now, we the New Testament Church shall be granted the same blessings as the Church was granted in times of old and even more so as God has set forth a complete dispensation of GRACE in which to save man from His final wrath; the wrath which will conclude his reign in the expressed inage of His son, Jesus Christ. Paul in Eph. 2-8, expresses this wonderful extension from God; "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God": Yes this grace is one of the most precious gifts given from God, in that it will enable us, the saints, to escape his wrath which is required that He may conclude His reign as Jesus Christ. More so, this is why Jesus said and warned His disciples to: watch and pray and not be carried away by the things of this world, that they will be counted worthy to escape and will be able to stand before the Son of Man; being found worthy of receiving His wonderful gift of GRACE we shall rise above all His wrath which shall flood the whole earth; just as Noah (The Church) rose above the wrath of God in the waters which flooded the whole earth. To give the Church reason; to give the Church solidification and to give the Church expectation our beloved Apostle Paul added this passage to one of his epistles (Read Romans 15:4). "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope". And Just as God kept Noah from His wrath revealed in the flood; He shall also keep the saints for His wrath which is to be revealed in the last time; the great tribulation period. Oh, I tell you that this is going to get good with godly understanding and wisdom as the Holy Ghost uses Brother Walker to open this up and show it to you. Praise God, Hallelujah.

Now, I know that all of you post-trib believers out there are chomping at the bits and are ready to take on Minister Walker; but hold on and let us continue to look at this last time period and check out some more scripture as I have not even gotten out of the book of Luke. In order to help you get an handle on this last time era let us look at this tribulation period, and conclude according to the word of God: (1) what is this last time of great tribulation, (2) what is going to take place in this time, (3) how long of a time line is involved, (4) why does this time of great tribulation have to happen and (5) What will happen to all the inhabitants of the earth during the great tribulation period.

  1. It is a time when the wrath of God will be upon the land and the peoples of the land; a time when the final judgement of God will be set against the inhabitants of the earth

(Read Deut. 4:26).

"I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed."

Very soon the world will enter the period of time described in Daniel as "a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation." A time when all humanity on the face of the earth will find itself under the rule of a one world government with a wicked tyrant at its helm. A tyrant who the Bible teaches will be controlled by the devil himself; an evil that has not previously been know to the people of the world . All this will cause God's judgment will fall in a fashion and an intensity never known to man before in all the days which he has lived upon this earth. These explosive events will happen in a period commonly called the seven year tribulation which occurs before the 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ on the earth. The first part of this seven year period is known as the beginning of sorrows . (Read Matthew 24:4-8) "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these [are] the beginning of sorrows". Jesus tells the church in verse 6 that when all of these things come to pass the end of this nightmare is not over yet. For all of the wrath of God is yet to come and this will be latter part of the end time which shall be Ďthe great tribulationí (Read Matthew 24:15, 19-20) 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:)ÖÖÖÖÖÖ For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Now, when you add one other passage of Jesus Christ to these two, you have the three scriptures which can reveal the mystery of the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy , providing you are given the correct understanding of them. (Read Matther 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" What is the mystery of the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy and understanding of these three bible passages spoken by Jesus Christ or Lord and Savior. I will address each of these as we get further in to this epistle and they are sure to provide you with additional input on what we are looking for in this epistle concerning the last time,

Now to understand what is going to take place in this last time let us look at the Prophecy of Daniel first and then look at the passages of Jesus Christ. (2) We will be forced due to the powers of the truth and the strength of knowledge, to accept this last time as a time of trouble beginning with the sorrows and ending as a time of the greatest of all tribulations such as not since the beginning to time. A time of iniquity not unlike any time since before the great flood of Noah; a time when the evil powers which dwell in darkness and is indeed the spirit of satan, that old serpent, the devil himself; shall manifest himself as blood and flesh and as the evil ruler of the whole wide world and will sit in the rebuilt temple of God, as if he were the one and only almighty God, (Read 2 Thes 2:3-4) Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. This time will in addition mark the end of the age of the gentile (Read Luke 21:24) And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. and the mystery restoration of the 12 tribes of Israel, and the reuniting of the divided kingdoms and their return to God according to the righteousness that is found in Jesus Christ. Whom now they can now accept and become a remnant of Godís Elect whose names are already written in the Lambs Book of Life. (Read Romans 11:23-28) And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural [branches], be graffed into their own olive tree? 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 fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob For this [is] my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, [they are] enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, [they are] beloved for the fathers' sakes. Yes, this is the time in which God has chosen to reclaim his people Israel and to bring about the end of the Gentile Age. So, let us look as Israel and at this end time to determine that the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy is indeed the time in which all these things will come about upon this earth.

Now there is no doubt the most important view pertaining to the seven year period, termed as a time leading to great tribulation; a time such as was not in all the ages of man upon the earth, begins with Israel. And if it should be that God is finished with Israel already. Then the core issue of any such seven year period of tribulation is destroyed and the Holy scriptures and bible prophecy is broken and hope that was hope for Israel is dissolved .

And when we speak of God being or not being through with Israel we must understand what and which Israel we are speaking of. We must establish and understand Apostle Paul in all his epistles is speaking of the Israelites as a race, not some "spiritual Israel." If we are to read Romans 11th chapter we can see that Paul defines the Israel he is speaking of! He is speaking of a people identified by the race they were born into not by their religion or affiliation nor their spirituality! "I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin" (Romans 11:1). What we have to conclude after reading Romans 11th chapter is that God will be dealing with the nations of Israel and not Israel the Church per say. If that is so you may ask what about the church and where is the church at this time? This is the good part of this whole epistle; keep reading!!

Then to the contrary, if God is not through with Israel as a Nation and as a favorite people then the issue not only is alive but the bible prophecy and the scriptures supporting the restoration of the divided kingdoms are very much intact and unbroken. And it is for this cause that God will send to the earth after the Gentile Age is finished, the two witnesses for the restoration of the two Kingdoms and their becoming one with one true King, Jesus Christ the Righteous. (Read Revelation 11:3-4) And I will give [power] unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. Now the two Olive Trees and the Two Candlesticks are two Kingdoms and the two nations of Israel who In disobedience to Yahweh, the Hebrews insisted on having kings, but the single rulers soon led to a North-South split of the kingdom into Israel, with its capital at Samaria, in the North, and Judah, with its capital at Jerusalem, in the south.

Do you not knot that the Jewish people are the people of God? Do you not know that they are called God's chosen people! Do you not know that they were specifically chosen by God to be His nation and His people. The Old Testament in so many places and in so many ways details this great relationship. The relationship was rocky and thatís a fact, but Israel in spite of all their disobedience was always called back by God! There is a perpetual relationship God has with Israel that no other nation of people past, present or future, on this earth can enjoy. Let us look at one of the many declarations about this great and loving relationship.

(Read Deut 4:26-39). "I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it? Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live? Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? Unto thee it was showed, that thou mightest know that the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he showed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt; To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else").

Now when we look at verse 37 "And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them." We see that it was out of the love that God had for the fathers of this nation, was His covenant established with Israel. Israel belong to God then and they belong to God today and they will always belong to God, even more so during this last time, great tribulation period. And this is the time that God has chosen to save His people Israel and this Israel will not be saved just by the Law as most of them believe today; as there is only one way for salvation and that is through repentance and remission of sins by water baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ who through faith we come to know as the precious Lamb of God. (Read Romans 11:5-6) "Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work" It is by this accounting of the saving of Israel as the last people to be reedeemed in this last time do we grow to the understanding of the words of our lord and savior Jesus Christ (Read Matthew 20:11-16) And when they had received [it], they murmured against the goodman of the house, Saying, These last have wrought [but] one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take [that] thine [is], and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Yes Israel is Gods own, for they were brought with a price and it is Jesus Christ who will demand and receive their obedience at last; it is Jesus Christ who only can claim them as his very own , vs, 15; it is Jesus Christ who will award them with the same salvation that have be awarded to all the other Gentile nations of the world. As there is only one plan of salvation for all the Jews and Gentiles alike the reward to those that are saved last will be the same reward as those that were saved first; for it pleases the Good Master to pay those that were hired in the first hour of labor the same wages as those hired in the last hour of labor. Even though Israel will be last in labor they were first in covenant; first in love and first offered salvation; it confirms their purpose unto God, according to his own counsel. (Read Romans 11:1,2, & ), I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, [of] the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknewÖÖÖÖÖÖBut what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to [the image of] Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. So then according to the conditions of the everlasting covenant between God and His people then, so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, and to ensure that the eternal word of God will always remain eternal and true; God will reserve unto himself that few called remnant of chosen ones (Read Revelation 14:1) " 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".

Many individuals have become confused about the basis of this great reconciliation between God, and His chosen people. And we must be clear on this issue and cause the individual to understand that the future relationship with Israel will be based on the same truth it always has: and that is gospel truth. Do you not know this? All that stands between Israel and God today is their refusal to "be obedient unto his voice" and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is clear on this too. One day soon Israel will turn to the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the Messiah! The restoration of Israel will be a gospel restoration. It will be a gospel restoration for this reason: Godís Covenant with his people Israel goes deeper than the things which took place at Mount Sinai; yes sir, it is a relationship that goes back to Abraham! For His own purpose, God called Abraham out, and it was not based upon Abraham's righteousness, but based upon God's choice derived from His love and mercy and his most extended grace. The Lord God not only promised His heart and fidelity to this people, praise God, but He gave His word as a commitment that no other people on the earth possess as a race or as a nation! And that is; He will hear them wherever they are and He will bless them whenever the need be, because of who they are! And all these things are upon them as they are the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! "And it pleased God to give them the law, added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; And at last the time is soon to come where the God of Israel shall be in their hearts and they shall be saved; both of the candelsticks.

Again, let us ask ourselves: "Hath God cast away his people?" (Rom. 11:1), and "Have they stumbled that they should fall?" (Rom. 11:11). The answer to this question in the strongest of terms by the Apostle Paul is: "God forbid". There is no doubt that the Ďlast timeí reconciliation of Israel is a mystery; that none of us can fully explain because much of this revelation has not been given in the Gentile age and has been sealed until that time of restoration of Godís natural Israel. (Read Daniel 12:1-4) And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame [and] everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. This is why Apostle Paul called the restoration of Israel a mystery; as the revelation to this great acceptance by God of His people cannot be given until the age of the Gentile has ended and the final period of the final week of Danielís Prophecy begins.

So, I donít know how it is going to happen in detail but I know that it is going to happen, because God said it is going to happen. I can freely admit this without having a problem . However many ministers who feel that God has given them the revelation to all things will go and try to tell you in minute details how this will be played out in the very end of the Ďlast timeí when the book holding its revelation is still sealed. There are some things which have been revealed by the holy spirit concerning the last time and those are the things that we have to work with if we are to come to any conclusion about what we should know about this time and we will know more as this great day comes nearer. What we do know from what is written is: "God is able to graft them in again" (Rom. 11:23). Then Apostle Paul declares that God will graft them in again, "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" (Rom. 11:25). This we can plainly see, praise god ; that God brings one period of time to a close and opens another. That is, in the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy the age of the Gentiles shall expire and the time of restoration of the nation of Israel and the house of Judah will begin.

3). What must be realized is that this Ďlast timeí referred to as a time of tribulation and of great tribulation cannot be fully explained by any minister as of this date; and those that do the very best job of explaining it are those who attempt to explain the final position of Godís people the natural Israel and their restoration to the one God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth whom they rejected and will not accept as a nation of people until the very end that it could be made possible for all of us Gentiles to learn of His unconditional love and be saved. This being the case we must begin this time line of the 70 weeks of Danielís Prophecy with the nation Israel; the people chosen from all the nations of the world and given His law and an elevated status to where He would not be ashamed to be born into the world as one of them and to be born like His brethren.

Now Israelís restoration shall be established in it own time period; a time after this present age is expired,, that is the age of the Gentile and at the end of this age the restoration of Israel begins. Know this: Daniel 9: 25 marks the end of this present age as the fullness of the Gentiles. That you may understand this epistle I have failed to use any original Hebrew and Greek, however, we need to look at the word fullness in much more detail in order to arrive at the best conclusion and for that reason let us look at the Greek.

The original word was ginomai {ghin'-om-ahee}meaning Ďbe, or come to pass". In other words there is a time given for the house of Israel to seek salvation according to the righteousness found in Jesus Christ after the age of the gentiles is finished; after it has been. Now Fullness means the completion of something. (Read Gal. 4:4, Eph. 1:10, Col. 1:19, 2:9 for other usage's of the word fullness.) The age of the Gentiles is defined as a period when God is still saving Gentiles, and bringing them into His earthly government; all those that believe and are baptized! We are in this age now at this very present time, but it is clear there is an end to what we are now experiencing; christ himself proclaimed that the age of the Gentiles shall be fulfilled. The end is near. The scripture gives us notice that all of the Gentile nations of the world must begin to make a sincere effort toward the saving of their souls by obeying Godís word in it fullness. This present time will not linger; this time will not wait; this time will not stand still as Godís purpose has from the foundations of the worlds has already been charted and God is an unchanging God. Praise God and give thanks to His holy name, Jesus!

When we examine Jerusalem by bible scripture we will find that it (Jerusalem) will surely be given back to Israel when this present period ends (age of the Gentiles). (Luke 21:24) "And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled". The governmental seat of God's earthly kingdom was eternally placed at Jerusalem and was there at Jerusalem even as the Church began. Therefore we must consider Israel's government to be nationalistic since it is based on race and geographic boundaries. And this makes the Israel that God will deal with in the last time distinctly different from the Church as we know it today. Now you must understand that we are not refereeing to anything other than the governmental form of Israel as compared to the present day Church. A part of this mystery is the issues of ordinance which will, without question, be settled by God when He institutes the new Israel. A point of interest is that the City of Jerusalem is governmentally, under partial control of the nation of Israel today. Now, to satisfy our intent and that is to explain the last times and how it will affect the church and how the church will escape the great tribulation at the end of this time we are only going to deal with the logical order of the selected prophecies and the chronological order of the events described therein. Praise God we know that there is much more that can be said and much more that can be written; but the intent is to keep this as simple as we can that you will have less problems in understanding this epistle. And if you are not already lost and given up, lets continue to unfold this mystery that God hath made known to His servants.

So then to arrive at what we are looking for, let us examine some of the scriptures where the Bible speaks specifically of the duration of this future time period? (Read Daniel 9:24-27). "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. 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 threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 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. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."

Now lets take each verse and look at its logical order and it chronology, beginning with verse 24; and notice that this prophetic revelation concerns Israel (The Nation) and the holy city (Jerusalem). And we are told that this period in the time line is determined by God "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." As Romans 11 states that God is not finished with Israel and Jerusalem, these words become very important to us and are vital to our understanding of this complex issue. Now see this, if God is finished with Israel then there is no question these verses are, for us, historical in nature. But to the contrary, if God is not finished with Israel, as the Bible teaches (Romans 11), then it cannot be said that the fulfillment of these verses are completely in the past, can we? If so then tell me: Has God finished the transgression of Israel? Has God made an end of the sins of Israel? Has God fully reconciled Israel if there are still Israelites to be saved? Has God brought everlasting righteousness to His capital, Jerusalem? Has the preparation for and fullness of the Messiah's rule over Israel come completely about yet? God forbid. For the answers to these questions must be based upon the New Testament verses we have already touched and not Old Testament millennial and Messianic prophesies that are so easily moved into the millennialist's catalog of symbolic passages, pre, mid or post. Romans 11 does not in any way speak of a symbolic restoration of Israel! It is, without question, to any Bible believer especially the apostolics, a literal restoration, and therefore we firmly answer each of these questions: NO! And NO! again.

Now that we are able to understand the importance of the answers we can move forward with a basis to establish interpretation of the rest of Danielís selected Chapter 9; looking at verse 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 threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times". We can see that verse 25 clearly declares when the Messiah was to come. And He came right on time. Notice this verse covers the first 69 of Daniel's 70 weeks. It is undisputed, with the exception of liberals and a few others, that these weeks are to be interpreted as weeks of years (Each week of the prophecy is a seven year period). What all this simply means is that from the date of the going forth of the commandment to the Messiah was 483 years. It is interesting to read the intensity and to the extent with which historicists struggle with this time period's termination point. If the 483 years ends at the birth of Christ and not His baptism their position against a period of time between Daniel's 69th and 70th weeks is destroyed and this is why Satan blinds the eyes of those who try to understand for if the period ended at a time after his birth, then the final, 70th week cannot be extended as the last times. Note, these arguments, however, are simply nonsense and an inability to understand. And when you look close you will see that no matter when the 483rd year came, verse 26 establishes that there is a period of time between the 69th and 70th weeks, which we shall see later is the time known as the age of the Gentiles. (Read Daniel 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"

Now see this! Please take special notice to the word "after". Whatever takes place in verse 26 is after the 69th week. What happens after the 69th week? The Messiah is cut off. This is the atoning death of Jesus Christ on the cross at Golgotha. Again please note that this is not the last event mentioned in verse 26! Now if the death of Jesus Christ was the complete fulfillment of Danielís verse 24, as many bible readers and historicists claim, then why didn't the Holy Ghost allow the chapter to end here with nothing else said? Why is there yet another event mentioned in this verse and the 70th week not mentioned until the next verse?

Now many bible scholars are happy to point out that the event mentioned after the crucifixion is the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. This is where all of the confusion comes in between the pre, mid and post trib scholars as they all jockey to place this event in the correct week of Danielís Prophecy. We will not get into all that they say and believe about this event and where they place it but we will continue forward with the correct understanding that there is a period of centuries between Daniel's 69th and 70th weeks. And while many of these scholars declare that one part of this verse is in Daniel's 70th week and the other part is not only shows the inconsistency on their part, especially when the 70th week of the prophecy has yet to be introduced. So let me tell you where I place both events of verse 26; I place them after the 69th week and before the 70th week. Because this is right were these events are placed in the logical order of the verses in the 9th Chapter of Daniel. Now, to understand this extended time line between the 69th and 70th weeks we must look at the time given for the Gentiles to become a part of Godís Universal Church of Jesus Christ.

The age of the Gentiles began when Israel crucified their Messiah; when the voice said ĎIt is finishedí; when the blood and water came from his side, and when He hang there lifeless between the two thieves and then was placed in the tomb, waiting for the third day when He would be glorified and all power and authority put in His hands. The age of the Gentiles began! Israel rejected the resurrected Messiah, and Jerusalem and the temple (the city and the sanctuary) were destroyed in 70 A.D. by Titus and the Roman Army. And I say unto you, that until this day Israel is still in the same evil unbelief they were then. They are in the same rebellion that precipitated the destruction of the city and the sanctuary! They are still that disobedient nation of people! And they are still cut off from God, their creator and keeper according to the righteousness found in the rejected Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ. This epistle is not written to show bias toward Israel; but to the contrary it is written to show that Israel will have their own day with the Lord and the mystery shall be revealed. We cannot criticize Israel as all that has happen since and including the rejection of the Messiah has been according to Godís purpose, (Read Romans 11:8) According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And (Read Romans 11:11) I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but [rather] through their fall salvation [is come] unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. So we can rightfully say that so far the extended 2,000 year period between the 69th and 70th weeks of Danielís Prophecy came at the expense, yet according to Godís purpose, of a favorite yet disobedience people of God; the people of the natural Israel.

Now we can plainly see that Daniel's 69th and 70th weeks has to extend to at least the year 70 A.D. because this is the period of time between the 483rd year of verse 25 and the last of the events of verse 26! By understanding the chronology we also know this period of time is much longer than this because the temple destroyed by Titus' men has yet to be rebuilt, and the 70th week of the prophecy requires a temple. The purposes of God cannot be manifested with the holy temple at Jerusalem. Furthermore, Titus did not confirm the covenant or sit in the temple and declare himself to be God; as the anti-Christ will surely do according to prophecy. This event has yet to happen and can not happen until after the 70th week has begun. (Read 2 Thess. 2:2-4). "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" Josephus says Titus was running around trying to get his men to stop destroying the temple. He was not declaring himself to be God nor did he have the opportunity to sit in the temple as if he were God; as the temple was destroyed by his own army, whom he had lost control over. Again (Read Dan. 9:27). "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the over spreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. So you can see that Daniel's 70th week is not mentioned until after the events of verse 26; and that these verses and events are clearly in chronological order. The events of verse 26 are "after" the events of verse 25; remember the importance of the word Ďafterí. The events of verse 27 follow the events of verse 26. This time period that we are showing to be between the 69th and 70th weeks of Daniel is not only justified by rules of Biblical interpretation, but it is necessary and it is also required to establish the time allocated for the age of the Gentiles, which had to begin at the death of Jesus Christ; for that is the time that the Jews rejected Him; who had entered into the world to align them with a new kind of righteousness which would allow the promised covenant to be placed in their hearts. Whereas concerning the Messiah and his undertaking. The carnal Jews looked for a Messiah that could deliver them from the Roman yoke and from the bondage of their oppressors and give them temporal power and wealth which all of the leaders of the Jewish church longed for, And whereas they were here told that the Messiah should come upon another errand, purely spiritual, and upon the account of which he should be the more welcome. That He should come to take away sin, and to abolish that which had made a quarrel between God and man; and had alienated men from God and provoked God against man. As it was this that put dishonor upon God and brought misery upon mankind; this (sin) was the great mischief-maker. He that would come and do this work of God, a work that also, must be the destruction of this sin that came upon the whole world, and for this purpose he was manifested, to destroy the works of the devil. He does not say to finish your transgressions and your sins, but transgression and sin in general, for he is the propitiation not only for the sins of Jews, but for the sins of the whole world. He came, First, To finish transgression, to restrain it; to break the power of it, to bruise the head of that old serpent that had done so much mischief, to take away the usurped dominion of that old wicked tyrant, and to set up a true kingdom of holiness and love in the hearts of all men, upon the ruins of Satanís kingdom there, that, where sin and death had reigned, righteousness and life through grace might, shall evermore reign.

Now, that I have taken a few sentences to write about Jesus and the wonderful thing he was to be for the Jewish people had not their leaders rejected Him; I am energized and inspired to finish this epistle and reveal to you the rest of the truth concerning this Ďlast timeí, where tribulation will the foremost and upfront in the lives of all those that are upon the earth; even those that He came first to save and to place his spirit in their hearts. But we must not forget that Israel is His Love and Israel will be saved and this brings us back to the 70th week of the Prophecy of Daniel.

When we look at the contents of verse 27, we find that it requires a restoration of Israel's relationship with God which has not taken place since the events of verse 26. Since this restoration has not yet taken place, the temple has not been rebuilt, and the events of verse 24 are not yet completed to this day; we must believe, according to these holy scriptures that Daniel's 70th week is yet in the future, that is the very near future. Since this prophecy deals specifically with Israel as a nation, and Romans 11 speaks of a future restoration of Israel we are left no choice but to believe that the future restoration of Israel will occur in the 7 year period of God's prophecy in Daniel verse 27. Here is the Biblical evidence for a future period of 7 years when God shall save Israel and the temple will have been rebuilt once again in Godís holy city of Jerusalem.

The Great Tribulation aspect of this seven year period is not difficult to establish once the foundation of the future fulfillment of Daniel's 70th week is established and this is the period of time we will deal with in the rest of this epistle that is growing into a book, praise God. You will see that Daniel chapter 11, 12, then the Olivet Discourse the way Jesus Preached it and not the way most men interpret it, and the book of Revelation all tie together with this 70th week to give us a clear view of what will take place during this short period of time. These verses along with many others also establish that the literal return of Jesus Christ to the earth is immediately after Daniel's 70th week and not at the beginning or during the middle of the week but immediately at the last day of the week will Christ return with His saints to earth and This will be His second coming.

Now, we must clear things up a bit concerning this 70 AD destruction of the temple at Jerusalem as this is the thing that causes most individuals to get off on the wrong track about the last times.

Now concerning this 70 AD, final destruction of Jerusalem, and of the Jewish church and nation; not to ever be reconstructed until the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy; and this followed immediately upon the cutting off of the Messiah, not only because it was the just punishment of those that put him to death, which was the sin and the transgressions that filled up the measure of their iniquity and brought ruin upon them as the nation of Godís people, but because, as things were, it was necessary to the perfecting of one of the great intentions of his death; that is the taking away of the old covenant and establishing the new covenant. In other words He died to take away the ceremonial law, quite to abolish that law of commandments, and to vacate the absolute obligation of it. But the Jews, being disobedience children of God, would not be persuaded to quit it; still they kept it up with more zeal than ever; they would hear no talk of parting with it; they stoned Stephen (the first Christian martyr) for saying that Jesus should change the customs which Moses delivered them (Read Acts 6:14) so that there was no way to abolish the Mosaic economy but by destroying the temple, and the holy city, and the Levitical priesthood, and that whole nation which so incurably doted on them. And this was effectually done in less than forty years after the death of Jesus Christ, and it was a desolation that would never be repaired to this day. Now, It is here foretold that the people of the prince that shall come shall be the instruments of this destruction, that is, the Roman armies, belonging to a monarchy yet to come (Christ is the prince that shall come, and they are employed by him in this service; they are his armies, or the Gentiles (who, though now strangers, shall become the people of the Messiah) shall destroy the Jews. That the destruction shall be by war, and the end of that war shall be also this desolation determined. The wars of the Jews with the Romans were by their own obstinacy made very long and very bloody, and they issued at length in the utter extirpation of that people; That the city and sanctuary shall in a particular manner be destroyed and laid quite waste. It was common knowledge during the invasion that, Titus the Roman general would have saved the temple, but his soldiers were so enraged against the Jews that he could not restrain them from burning it to the ground, that this prophecy might be fulfilled. and what should that be but the spirit of slumber (Read Rom. 11:8, 25), that blindness which has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles shall come in? And then all Israel shall be saved; so say I now again that if we are to understand and be able to recognize all those things which shall come to pass, we first, must be able to understand the order which was, the order which is and the order which must still come to past.

This destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD was not the destruction spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24:2 as you can see why: And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Here Jesus is speaking of his return to earth with all of His saints after the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy is fulfilled. His return will be of the force of and the power and authority of God almighty and will utterly destroy the temple, not a single stone will be left in place, because it has become defiled by the anti- christ who sit himself in it and proclaimed that he is as if he were God. Now Titus and his men did not destroy the complete Temple as much was left standing including the West Wall and as we said before he certainly did not set himself in the Temple as if he were God nor was any other man or ruler able to do so, inasmuch as the Temple had been destroyed during the war. As I have said the temple that is to be destroyed and not a single stone left standing according to Matthew 24:2 is yet to be built. It will be the temple that the Jews are contemplating this very moment to construct as soon as possible. It will be the most grand of all holy places and the most beautiful of all holy Temples; and will be the place where the anti-christ possess to show forth his dominion over all the world as he sits himself upon the holy seat of grace and as if he were the true and one God.

So now with this last bit of critical information is place let us look at this last (70th) week of Danielís Prophecy of which the most of us agree will be the last 7 years of manís existence upon this earth before and prior the 1,000 year reign and the establishment of Christís Earthly Kingdom; a time which shall be filled with sorrows and trouble, and the last part, Great Tribulation; taking the coming of Christ only to show a brighter day for earth and its people. We should all give praises to God for having given us the knowledge and ability to know and believe that Jesus Christ will come to save the church and to execute judgement upon all the world and whereby we do know that all that believe shall in him have absolute justification. Praise be to God.

Now let us look at vs 27, Danielís 9th Chapter: And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."

We conclude here, that this 70th week is a time period consisting of seven years and is further divided into two smaller and identical time period of 42 months or three and a half years. During this time line (seven years) many things will take place in an earth that has completely waxed old and is like an old garment ready to split apart at all of its seams; and as a vesture that is ready to be folded up. This incredible time will bring about events that will be so profound until the earth and also the heavens will suffer irreversible change. (Read 2 Peter 3:10-12) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. This incredible last time will be the time when the last of the wrath of god will be poured out upon the inhabitants of the earth; a wrath with such veracity until it shall by its end affect all the living upon all the earth. This last time will begin as trouble in the lands and among the nations, perplexity upon the earth, and a falling away among the Gentile believers; as Satan begins his final assault upon the Church of God. It shall be the time when God shall amidst all tribulation and distress reveal the mystery to save His people; the nation Israel, placing His seal upon them, that they would be heirs to salvation according to the promise and covenant made He to and He with Abraham.

Now this last time will not be a surprise upon man even though he will react to the events of the time as if nothing is abnormal and will even take delight in proclaiming that the world goes on as it has from the beginning and that there is not promise of His coming evident. They will walk the street of the cities of the world and proudly boast that there is no coming of the Lord and all things are continuing as the have been since their fathers fell asleep and since creation began. The Apostle says about this; they willingly are ignorant of because by the word of God all things have been kept is store and have survived through all the generations just for this purpose; the purpose of God, and praise God this is the truth of His word. There is already or shortly will be many signs for the same to witness and experience that does point to His coming and only the pure in heart shall see the things with the correct understanding to know that their time draweth near. We are told by Jesus Himself that we should look for those things which will be a sign of His coming and He said to His ministers, that: ÖÖ ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

Now, at this time many things will begin to take place to earmark this time as the beginning of sorrows and the prelude to the worst of times that are to come in the very near future of this age which man has propelled himself into because of his stubbornness and iniquity.

We are told therefore to: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Remembering that there is a reprieve extended to mankind because: (2 Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Yes, this will be the last chance for the Gentiles to come forward and accept salvation in the name of Jesus Christ; the only name given under heaven, among men whereby they must be saved; praise God and His highness. And herein are the things to expect for this time:

This 70th week of Danielís Prophecy will begin and the time will become like no other times since the beginning; as the nation Israel will begin to accept the messages from God

Which will begin to mold them into a people who will finally learn for the very first time that the oneness found in Jesus Christ is the same Oneness that was in the Lord God Jehovah and the Glory that is to be revealed is the same Glory that was in mount Sani in the presence of Moses. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." This shall be the time that Israel shall commence the building of the final temple. A time is which the mystery of God does work to the saving of Israel; even when that are still in defiance to the Gospel of God and are returning to the rebuilding of the temple to continue the tradition of the Law even all the while unknowingly working those things which are of God and His Christ and His purpose meant to save all who will call upon His name, That is the name of Jesus Christ.

Know this; the temple at Jerusalem must now begin to be rebuilt to become the holiest place on earth and this is necessary not just for the return of the nations of Israel to return to the true God Jesus Christ; but also to support those things which must come to past including the final claim made by Satan that will propel the return of Christ to earth. This Holy temple will not only be the most holy of all places in the earth; but it will be the most beautiful place, the most beautiful temple in all the earth. Its construction will excel at a rate unlike any project before and be completed quicker than any other project of this magnitude ever before. It will be the most expensive temple ever constructed full of gold, gold leaf and inlaid gold, the most gracious wood workings ever exhibited and all the old will give away to a new technology that will surpass all that we understand today. Yes this temple will be built for the living God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob and of all Israel at a time that would seem almost impossible to accomplish: "ÖÖ..the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times". Yes it shall be completed and stand ready, and fit for the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

This all will begin to happen when the world heads into a tailspin and the inhabitants will become over whelmed at all that is taking place upon the earth. A time which Jesus spoke of as; "ÖÖ..All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. A time when the whole world enters into never ending; irreversible chaos that grows worse and worse each day by day. A time when the church will enter into an era of great persecution by Satan; nothing like it has been subject to since the beginning of time. Now, out of all the turmoil taking place in this earth the church is at last ready to go home, but the end of its wait can not come until it prevails against the gates of hell. "Ö.but the end is not yet. The end cannot be yet as the church has not been delivered and Israel have not been saved. (Revelation 12:1-2) 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: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Satan knows that his dominion over all the earth will not end if he can prevent the church from being delivered and he sets out with his angels to prevent the church from being delivered and here he will commence his last attempt to prevail against Christís Church. Our consolation, that is the church, is in Christ the Lord as he had reminded us that: (Matthew 16:18) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Now, during this time that is called the beginning of sorrows by our Lord Jesus Christ; begins the severe persecution of the Church of Christ and it is the Lord God who prepares a place for the church, under his blessings and his control the church prevails against Satan for 42 months here under troublesome times; and when Satan is ready to devour the church, the hand of God keeps it safe (Read Revelation 12:6) And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days. With the church now subject to the affinity of God, who exhibits His great love and is ready to make the promise good; that He would come again and receive the church as his own; the age of the Gentiles have now come to a closing. That is; from this time forward the Gentiles will not be able to come forward and find salvation in the church. The divided nation of Israel is, according to the promise of God ready to be saved subject to the righteousness that is in Jesus Christ. Get this; with the wilderness church sealed by the holy spirit of God for this first part of the 70th. Week of Danielís Prophecy; meaning that the saints are spiritually secure; they will not quit, they will not give up, they will not backslide, and they will not depart from their first love.(Eph. 4:30) And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. And this causes Satan to be angry, even more so at the church and now that he cannot destroy it spiritually he sits out to destroy it physically; Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

By inflicting inhumane punishment upon the saints and not spearing their lives he hopes that many will leave their first love and turn from the church of God; and he (Satan) is wrong again as Christ has told the church: (Revelation 2:10) Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. Praise God and give Him the glory. Note this: and ye shall have tribulation ten days: for this is the last short period of time before the saints of God are redeemed. Satan now knows as he has always known that he has but a short time and he invents evil to use against the saints of God, such evil that the earth and it inhabitants have never seen since to day he (satan) was created. With the names of the saints already written in the lambís book of life, knowing that their redemption is near Satan is determined to exhaust his last efforts. (Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. All rules of engagement have changed and now they are the rules that satan wishes to use as he brings the whole world under his dominion. With his eye on the Jews, Godís favorite nation who have rebuilt the Great Holy Temple for the restoration of their own salvation he (Satan) is will be determined to destroy them before they to are sealed and ready to be redeemed by the Lord God Almighty . And before their day of redemption he again uses betrayal of the nation Israel to set himself in the rebuilt Holy Temple as if he were God. (Read 1 Thess 2:3-4) Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. As Satan sits in the Holy Temple at Jerusalem as the son of perdition his dominion over all the world increases and becomes absolute as all the kingdoms of the world cede their power to him as the Ďbeast.í (Read Revelation 13:4-8) And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. This time line consisting of 42 months where the beast, that old Satan, the devil will rule all the earth is the last half of Danielís 70th week of prophecy or the last half of the seven year period and is known as the time of great tribulation and is unlike anything ever known to man in all the time he has dwelled upon the earth. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Glory to God.

In as much as it is given him to make war against the saints with the intent to destroy the physical church we can now begin to understand the words of Christ: and ye shall have tribulation ten days . For if this time was allowed to run the whole 42 months of Satanís total dominion over the earth the Church, not yet rescued and redeemed would be totally destroyed; but this cannot happen or be so as Godís promise to the Church is: Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. Now to those that are destined to give their lives for the testimony of Jesus Christ they are, with help of the holy ghost, to remain faithful until death. But for all the rest of the church these days are to be shorten to prevent the destroying of the total physical church by Satan. (Matthew 24:21-22) For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Note this; there should no flesh be saved: is here referring to the physical beings of saints of God. Their bodies would be destroyed not their spiritual being as it has been seal by God and destined for eternal life. But the saints of God who have kept the commandments of the Lord Jesus and have prayed always to Him that they may escape this terrible time are now having their prayers answered by their Savior. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. The forty and two months given Satan to rule over the inhabitants of the earth will not be shortened but the time he will have to physically destroy the saints of God will be stopped after a time period designated as 10 days by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To put an end of these days as they affect the Church; Jesus Christ will at this time call His Church home and the translation of the saints of God, the time for final victory over the flesh and a time for being rewarded with those things the eye hath no seen nor ear heard, but held in trust by the Father for those who love His appearing. (1 Cor. 2:9) But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. Get this; for at this time the church is ready to be caught up to be with the Lord. (1 Th. 4:17) Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. We which are alive; we which, were not destroyed by Satan as he wedged war against the saints; we which remain on this earth, now turned into a killing field by Satan will be caught up together with them that died in Christ Jesus in the clouds, where we will meet the Lord in the air and shall ever be with Him. Yes, We shall always and at all times be with the Lord Jesus. We shall be caught up; translated from the Greek word, harpazo {har-pad'-zo} Meaning that the saints of God will be snatched out of a troublesome and evil world and away from the destructive grip of Satan. With this Greek word being a derivative of haireomai {hahee-reh'-om-ahee} which tells us that the Lord Jesus has taken the Church for Himself; He has choose the Church above all other to be His Bride at the appointed time set forth after the counsel of His own will.

We learn here of this mystery concerning the Church of God; (1 Cor. 15:50-55) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? We see here that we are not to inherit the kingdom of God as we now appear or as those appeared who are no longer alive, but will be changed from corruption and mortal to incorruption and immortality. All of this will take place rapid and in perfect order, in the time it take to wink the eye, all happening at the sound of the last trump. (Read 1 Th. 4:13-16) But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Concerning those who are still alive Apostle Paul offers consolation to those in that: v.17 Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. We will meet the Lord in the air; we will come together with those who were once dead, in the clouds. Now the saints of God upon their redemption will meet the Lord in the air in that there are other things taking place and there are things that are yet to happen they are not ready to enter into the paradise of God as they also must complete remaining work yet to be assigned to them. (1 Corinthians 16:2-3) Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Now one must not confuse what is happening here with what is to happen at the end of this great tribulation period. We see here the catching up of the saints of God who will take on immortality; a glorified form of existence made possible by the perfect blood of Jesus Christ. Here we see Jesus Christ not coming to the earth for translation of the saints of God, but that they are going to meet him in the air and from this meeting in the elements or the heavens will we be with Him for evermore. This event is the first resurrection, where the dead in Christ shall be the first to rise and they are not subject to the second death. Now understand this; the first resurrection, where the saints of God are caught up is not to be confused with the second coming of Jesus Christ back to this earth. Here, according to Revelation 1:7; Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. We can plainly see that these are two different events and can also observe that this event is not the first resurrection in that every eye shall see Him; for we know that only those that are dead in Him and we (Saints) which are alive and remain shall be the only ones to see Him in the event (first resurrection) where we are caught up to forever be with Him. Also those that pierced Him will witness His second coming; and we know that none but the pure in heart shall see God in the first resurrection. None , except the true saints will be with Him. Those that pierced Him and all who are without true salvation, all evil will not even know that Jesus Christ has come to catch away His Church. All those that are upon the whole earth shall wail because of Him; and we know that there will be Praise, Joy, Gladness, and comfortinging when the church is caught up to meet Him in the air.

This lack of understanding causes many individuals to become confused about the first resurrection and the second coming of Jesus Christ and therefore they adopt precepts based upon pre, mid, and post tribulation events and relate them to the saints of God being translated and the second coming of Jesus Christ. For these are indeed two different events with two different actions which are to happen in the presence of Christ. And the time line has a separation of about forty two months. We will look at this more in depth as we continue this revealing epistle on the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy.

Therefore, they (saints) are place with the Lord in the air to escape punishment by the Beast and to avoid the final wrath of God, which is to be poured out upon all the earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Get this and marvel, They are placed in the air in as much as the church upon entering into heaven will become the Bride of Christ and those that have been ransomed by the power of God to meet Him in the air, are not the complete church. They are those which kept the word of God up and unto the end of the age of the Gentiles. The hundred and forty four thousand from the nations of Israel who are sealed with the spirit of God and all those who will come through Great Tribulation are not yet with the Lord in the air and all of spiritual Israel (The Church) must be presented in heaven together as the bride of Christ. (Revelation 7:14) And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. And with great wonder, the saints of God are caught up to meet Him in the air; for when Satan saw that the church was going to be redeemed and taken up to God, he and all his angles set out to make war in heaven against Michael and his angels. (Read Revelation 12:7-11) And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Now be not mistaken, this war in heaven between Michael and his angels and Satan and his angles is not at the time satan was first kicked out of heaven for his desire to be like the most high. (For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:) No, this war is during the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy and v.10; even after the Lord Jesus has ascended into heaven and is set down on the right hand of God.

This war and Satanís failure to prevail against Michael and his angles and the saints of God v. 11: will be his last encounter with the holiness of heaven as the holy place for which he was first made to serve God Almighty; in the place which was to be his eternal home except his pride got into the way. He is cast out of heaven, after his failure to prevail, back unto the earth and his angles with him and will never again be allowed to have a peep of the holiest of holy. There is further evidence that this war is to take place during the 70th week of Danielís prophecy as is noted verse 9 that Satan, that old serpent deceiveth the whole world; and it is only at this time of tribulation is he given power to deceive the whole world. Thanks be to God for revelation given to his servants. As he is again a looser in heaven, the world is now compelled to endure great tribulation. (Read Revelation 12:12) ÖÖÖ.Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Now, Satan knows that by the church being redeemed through the powers of God and his failure to prevail with his angels; his time is at an end; his great wrath is upon the lands; v.13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man [child]. Here we see the Natural Israel for the first time recognized as the Spiritual Israel, the Church of God as salvation is now come to the nations of Israel, Godís favorite people, whom He shall save. Here we see Satan ready to persecute the remnant church of Israel as it was this church that God established amidst all the nations of the earth for none other that the purpose of bringing His son Jesus Christ into the world that it might be saved. The wrath of Satan is now against this last remnant of the church, the people Israel, the favorite nation of God. (Read Rev. 12:14-16) And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. Now as The power of God works to save Israel and to redeem the last remnant of the church, The very elect of Godís people in a number determined since before the foundation of the world was lain, will be sealed with the holy spirit of redemption, pleasing to God in as much as He reveals this mystery: (Romans 11:25-27) 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 fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this [is] my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. This is the time that God will redeem all Israel and will seal that total from each of the twelve tribes. (Rev. 7:3-4) For John heard a voice Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of this number, Satan cannot hinder them for they are sealed as servants of God until their day of redemption and cannot be harmed, causing the wrath of Satan to be directed against other inhabitants of the earth and the remnants of Spiritual Israel who are keeping Godís word against great tribulation. (Rev. 12:17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Now as Satan, the old devil cannot have dominion over the sealed church, the saints of God and the elect of God who have been sealed with the holy spirit of promise; the hundred and fourth four thousand; he is very wroth and as he has been given dominion over all flesh upon the earth he looks to those who are keeping the commandments of God, recognized as the righteous, those who were not caught up with the saints to meet the Lord in the air; and all of the remaining nations of Israel; these who are now the remnant seed of the woman (the church), will Satan now make war against as a last effort to prevent the total church from ever coming together in Godís heaven where it is to be presented as the bride of Christ, holy and without blemish, a glorious church having neither spot or wrinkle. As Satan sets to make war against the remnant of the seed of the woman, absolute procedures will be put in place on earth by him where the remaining righteous and those keeping the commandments of God, cannot escape. They are going to have to pay with their lives, all those remaining who are destined to be rewarded with a place in paradise will surely be put to death by the angels of Satan; demons who are manifesting themselves as human beings carrying out the works of the beast who sits in the temple, the temple of the Living God, as if he, himself, were God.

An elaborate scheme will then be put in place and all the inhabitants of the earth will be subject to it. No one will be outside of its grasp and all who fail to comply will be identified and put to death. (Read Rev. 13:15-18) 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. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six. Now understand this: the methods by which the second beast carries out his interests and designs for controlling of the world are: Lying Wonders, Excommunication and Disfranchisement. Here for the purpose of explaining the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy we will discuss the disfranchisement that satan will employ as a means of diverting many of the remnants of the church from eternal life and a place in Godís heaven. And the fact that no one on earth; not a single man might buy or sell, save he that has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name; brings a condition upon mankind that will in it finality give to satan all those that are his and for those that are destined to remain Godís, even by death the strength to hold on and keep His commandments.

This Number 666, the number of the beast is not a number that is easily understood nor is total revelation given as to the meaning of this number, save it is the number of a man. Get this: not a number of man but the number of a man. This tells us that to receive or to be given this number a man has to have a special criteria, he has to be a man that is other than normal and that he perhaps the most recognized man in all the world having all dominion over all the living to such and extent that they are required to take his mark, or his name or his number; all being one and the same. The number being it is 666, is signifying that it is a man who cannot ever obtain perfection; that it is a number given a man to show forth that he is corrupt in the absolute, a reprobate in the fullness and a total anti-Christ in all his precepts. Yes a man that is marked as one which has been totally rejected and condemned in the absolute by God Almighty. A man with a mark to show forth that he is totally alienated from the perfect Father and heaven, reserved for all those who keep the commandments of God. Now all those who are willing to receive this mark in lieu of accepting death, for whatever reasons there may be are placing themselves in a position of eternal destruction and damnation; whether it be for the love of life, the love of position, the love for the world that is then dying very fast, the love of iniquity, the love of rebellion or the love of fascination of the perceived wonders of the second beast; it does not matter and those who are guilty of accepting the mark of this man, the mark of 666 given this man by the holy ghost are likewise and are the same as the beast in the eyes of god; rejecting by decree their right to any salvation in the name of Jesus Christ and are forever and forever relinquishing their right to the Lambís Tree of Life and heavenly citizenship. See this my Brethren and followers of Christ; If you have never understood what it is; if you have never had a minister to explain it to you and if you thought that you would never learn what is its meaning; please be informed by the revelation given me by God Almighty that this is; when an individual receives the mark, accepts the name or carries the number of the beast; Blasphemy Against the Holy Ghost!! Yes when the hand or forehead is stamped with the name or the number of the beast that individual has then committed a sin that cannot ever be forgiven in this world or in the world to come. For that world to come for the ungodly will be the lake of fire where the beast and the false prophet and all those who take his mark will reside for ever and ever. (Read Matthew 12:31-33) Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the [world] to come. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by [his] fruit. Those, all of them who commit this sin of taking the mark of the beast will make their tree absolute and totally corrupt and that can never be subject to change, just like the sin that Satan committed in heaven which got him kicked out from the present of God.

The inhabitants of the earth are fore warned by the holy angle of God not to accept this mark and are told of the consequences of receiving it in their hand or forehead. (Read Rev.14:9-11) And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Always pray that you will not be one in the number who will in the last times blaspheme against the holy ghost. Glory to God, we need to give him thanks every minute of the day for having come and made it possible for us to escape the wrath of God. We will have remarks about those who did not received the mark of the beast at the end of this epistle.

As Satan cannot touch the sealed of God those that have had their names written in the Lambís Book of Life since before the foundations of the world were placed; the hundred and fourth four thousand included who are of the house of natural Israel we must look at this number. As God, who cannot lie, even when all His works are finished before there were any beginnings we see the beauty of standing on the promise of God which cannot ever fail but will always at the appointed time come and will shew forth the great authority and the riches that are kept by His word. Here we see the rewards for having been call by him to do the work which need be done by His servants, the Apostles and ministers of the Gospel of truth. And as the apostles were wanting to know of their reward for not leaving the teaching of the savior Jesus Christ we see a accounting of the blessings that are to unfold. (Read Matthew 19:27-30) Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last [shall be] first. Here we see promise to the apostles to the Jewish nations given by Christ and to ensure that this promise shall be kept it was Godís will to seal an equal number from each of the twelve tribes over which dominion shall be given to the twelve apostles; eleven chosen by the Lord Jesus and one by default and chosen by the Apostles themselves. Read Revelation 7:4-8; And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Juda [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin [were] sealed twelve thousand. These be they, who are sealed by the holy spirit of God from the houses of Israel and will stand before the twelve thrones of which the twelve apostles will sit in that day as part of their reward for having forsaken all and left behind all things for the sake of the gospel of Christ.

And now is the mystery beginning to be revealed as to how all Israel shall be saved and how they will no longer have eyes of slumber and ears that cannot hear and they will not remain a disobedient people any longer. But now through the powers of God and the impossibility for Him to lie, they, the first to have His love will now be the last to be saved. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural [branches], be graffed into their own olive tree? 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 fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: Now, it is the time of Godís choosing that he will remove the blindness and the stubbornness and the unbelief from the two kingdoms of Israel; the Northern Nation and the Southern Nation; the divided Israel. While they have renewed all of the splendor of the Old Testament Church and have rebuilt the temple needed to reinstate all of the sacrificial ceremonies; serving their God like the days of old and as in other ages; it is not this re-establishing of the old covenant and a returning to the Mosaic Laws which will save them from everlasting destruction and will allow that holy remnant to be seal with the holy spirit of God their creator. But it is the acceptance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and an entering in to the Kingdom of God. As, we read in Matthew 11:13: For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. In Luke 16:16 we read; The law and the prophets [were] until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

And again we read John 1:17; For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Now it is evidence that that which was first given to Israel cannot save them as it is expired by the coming of John and then Jesus Christ. It is of no more value as salvation must be found in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Moses and the prophets could not and did not save them and therefore it shall take One greater than Moses or the Prophets to save them and place the law of Jehovah God in their hearts. This Greater One is Jesus Christ of Nazareth who came that His own might have life and have it more abundantly that what they could have under the old covenant. Eventhough they will have restored all of that which is according to their way and from the old covenant position necessary to serve God; It is not that which will bring them to God. I suppose that it must be necessary for total restoration of all these things including the construction of the Most Magnificent Temple at Jerusalem; this being a part of the mystery that is yet to be revealed; and part of the final destruction and grounds for the final charges against Satan and the evidence need to convict him and sentence him to a thousand years in the bottomless pit. Even as it is to be the most beautiful church in the world, it shall be good for nothing once it has become defiled by Satan and his beast. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. All of this to, shall not be a part of that which is necessary to bring Israel to being regrafted back into their own natural root. No sir, it shall take that which was given to the apostles by Jesus Christ and preach unto all Israel upon His first coming; no more and no less. Read Mark 1:4; Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Also Read Luke 10:9-13; And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. This is what will save the nations of Israel; The preaching of the kingdom of God as it was preach to them in the beginning of this dispensation by Jesus Christ, the Seventy and Two and by the Twelve Apostles. There will not be another gospel given to bring salvation to Israel! No! It will be the same Gospel of the Kingdom which will have been preached unto ever creature under the heavens, including all of the disobedient spirits who rejected the will of God and are chained up in eternal darkness until the day of the Lord.

And just who will be entrusted by the power and authority of God to bring this same Gospel to the favorite people of God? Who will be given the knowledge and revelation sufficient to bring a disobedient people to their knees with the confession that Jesus Christ is Lord? And finally who will fight the spiritual battle against Satan and his angels who are determined to make war against the remnant of the womanís seed? And who in time of great tribulation will have the power from God to bring these many souls; as many as such as should be saved, to salvation in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord? In that the law and the Prophets were unto John and since that time the Kingdom of God is preached and those only who have preached the Kingdom of God was Jesus Christ , The Seventy and Two and the Apostles; it should be concluded that it is necessary for the return of the apostles or disciples of Christ for Israel to receive their salvation and eternal blessings. It is most unlikely to be the prophets of old as they did not preach the Kingdom of God and it was not entrusted unto them. In that there is not another and the fact that it was the Apostles who preached that which was, and is and is to come, Jesus Christ; then is it not fitting to accept that it shall be the apostles who will bring Godís two nations of people across the gospel threshold and into the house of the living God. In that there shall be two nations of Israel to be saved, it is only fitting to understand that there will be two apostles of Christ to reveal the mystery of salvation to the Jews. Read Luke 16:16; The law and the prophets [were] until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. No, All that the prophets did could not save the chosen people of god. Just like all the others the Jews are to be no exceptio. It is going to take the believing of the gospel of Jesus Christ to save them. And the Gospel was first spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ and then confirmed unto us by them that heard Him. Now in that he in speaking to the Apostles; And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Now we know according to the scriptures that Moses and John both said that all Israel should and/or would believe on a savior whose name is Jesus. And since the prophets were until John and from that time every man is pressed into the Kingdom of God through the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that through believing of the gospel through preaching, all can be forced (Pressed) to be saved, even the final two nations that make up the last remnant of the Church of Jesus Christ; the two nations of Jews. Therefore, with the prophets who were in charge of Godís word being no longer in charge after John but this duty given to the apostles of Christ, they are the ones who shall make Israel believe on Jesus Christ. And as this time of salvation for all Israel is validated in this part of the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy we can see this transition taking place as the last remnant of Godís Church is now ready to be saved. And are subject to the same innocent blood of Jesus Christ that the Gentiles were subject to, being saved in like manner.

Now as the completed temple of God sits in Jerusalem, being the last piece of that which is need to implement the great mystery that is to be revealed to save Godís favorite people and this must take place during a time of trouble, the likes of which no man who ever lived on the earth has ever witness. As this revelation was also given to John; let us examine this part of his Lordís Day vision. Read Revelation 11:1-x; 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. Here we see reference made to the new and magnificent temple rebuilt at Jerusalem and fitted with all those things according to the Law of Moses, necessary for Israel to worship their God according to the Old Covenant. Or at least this is what every Jew in the world will be thinking at that time as they are still in denial of the first coming of the savior Jesus Christ. But what we really see is John being given the revelation as to how by the power and authority of the mighty God ; His people Israel would begin to make that spiritual transformation from those things of the physical temple to becoming a people who are not a part of the spiritual temple of Christ, the church. For those that shall worship Christ now must be the Jews, as all the other nation is now cut off, no more to experience the spiritual benefits of salvation. 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 that which is not spiritual anymore all that which is Gentilentic in nature all of that which is outside of the kingdoms of the Jews can no longer be measured with that which is of the temple of God and the altar thereof. As Godís spirit no longer resides with the Gentile nations they will become perverse and an ungodly people in the absolute and will show contempt and will desecrate the holy city by devastation and outrage with a magnitude never afforded human flesh since the day that it was created until this time. Only that which is within the temple and the altar is to be measured and just how is it to be measured with the rod? It is to be measured according to the spiritual values which was set forth by God from the beginning for all those who wish to worship Him. Read John 4:21-24; Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.

How then shall a people worship him in spirit; whom they have denied; and How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! It is the last two apostles of Christ that will make it possible for the Jews to obtain salvation through believing on Jesus Christ in whom they have not believed. It is because of the efforts of the ministers of the gospel of the Kingdom by the power of the Holy Ghost, will Israel be saved from that which they were, to that which will allow them to become the saints of the most High God. (v. 3) And I will give [power] unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. Eventhough there will be a great treading down of Godís holy city of Jerusalem, He has reserved to himself His faithful witnesses, and they two shall not fail to attest the truth of his word and worship, and the excellency of his ways at a time when the anti-christ is in total control of the whole world. Yet, shall these two be prophets like none others since the world began and they shall speak and bring forth the word of God by divine revelations. This they will have the ability to perform even during this time of great tribulation and even when Satan is making war against the final remnant of the seed of the woman.

There will only be two of them sent to reveal the mystery and to convert a disobedient nation(s) from their beginning to believing in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Therefore, It is a sufficient number; for in the mouth of two witnesses every cause shall be established. Christ sent out his disciples two by two, to preach the gospel and to tell the nations that the Kingdom of God is at hand. As Israel is measured as the divided Kingdom and are the last two nations on earth having a remnant of saints there is a need for only two apostles who will deliver the gospel to Christ to the last nations, that the end may come.

Their habit and posture and their prophecy in sackcloth, when we look at these things conforms that these two witnesses of God are deeply affected by the low and distressed state of the final church remnant and the lack of interest for the righteousness of Christ in a world thrown and turned upside down by the ungodly acts of the anti-Christ. Glory to God and let us, the saints, give Him thanks for having delivered us from all of His wrath that is coming upon the inhabitants of the earth in this time. During all of the discharge of all their work they are able to stand before the God of the whole earth and are to be given power to prophesy. The Lord God will have made them to be like Zerubbabel and Joshua, the two olive-trees and candlestick in the vision of Zechariah, ch. 4:2-14. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

The Lord God shall have given them the oil of holy zeal, and courage, and strength, and comfort; He shall have made them olive-trees, and the lamps of their profession shall be kept burning by the oil of inward gracious principles rooted in the righteousness of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, which they shall receive from God.

Their safety and protection; their defense and security during the all time for their prophesying shall be this: 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.

They shall be given the promise that God promised to the prophet Jeremiah (see ch. 5:14), Behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people shall be wood, and it shall devour them. And by their ability to minister with a unlimited portion of Godís power and authority; their praying and preaching, and courage in suffering, shall gall and wound the evil hearts and ungodly consciences of many of their persecutors, who shall go away self-condemned, and in so many ways be even terrors to themselves; just like Pashur, at the words of the prophet Jeremiah, (see ch. 20:4). These two holy men of God shall have that free access to God, and an interest in Him, that, at their prayers, God will inflict plagues and judgments upon their enemies, even as He did on Pharaoh, turning their rivers into blood, and restraining the dews of heaven, shutting heaven up, that no rain shall fall for many days, as he did at the prayers of Elias, (1 King 17:1).

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. God has ordained his word against all their persecutors, and He by their hands (the two witness) is often plaguing them while they are persecuting the last remnant of the Church; and where else, they find it very hard work to kick against the pricks as these two apostles express the dominion and authority of God among the nations and the world as a witness against them. There is no fear of any man nor any inhabitant of the earth as the penalty for bringing hurt to the two is mandatory destruction and death by the fire from their mouths. Yes, the curtains are closing upon all mankind; their last chance for salvation through the name of Jesus Christ; as the kingdom of God is preached in its fullness and all mankind is pressed into it.

By the word of God, set forth before the foundation of the world were set in place, no destruction can come upon these fearless men of God for the forty two months that they are giving their testimony. No matter how much they are hated; no matter how much they are despised; and no matter how much they are presecuted they continue to stand before the God of all the world, until all their work is finished. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. They Are to be immortal; they are to be invulnerable, till their work is completed. And then only should they die, when they shall have finished their testimony. And to make their testimony and even stronger testimony they must seal it with their own blood; an offering of a sacrifice that they are willing to make that the last gospel message the world shall hear, before Godís wrath descends upon all the earth, shall have the astounding impact upon those that are yet to be saved, that is the final remnant of Christís Church. Because of this necessity the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit shall be given power to make war against them and to overcome them and to put them to death, to rid the world of two who are most despised by all the people.

But even death does not satisfy the appetite of the barbaric demonic controlled people of the earth. And their dead bodies [shall lie] in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. The barbarous usage of these slain witnesses by the profane evil doers; the malice of their enemies was not satiated with their blood and death, but pursued even their dead bodies. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

The inhabitants were glad to be rid of these witnesses, two great apostles of Jesus Christ, who by their doctrine and example had teased, terrified, and tormented the consciences of their enemies; these spiritual weapons had cut wicked men to the heart, and caused them to be fill them with the greatest rage and malice against the faithful two.

The wicked ones of the earth who will be giving praise to the beasts will not allow them a simple and quiet grave; their bodies were cast out into the open street, the high street of Babylon; into the high road leading to the city in which resides the Temple of God. Now this city is spiritually called Sodom for monstrous wickedness, and is called Egypt for idolatry and tyranny; and it is here where even Christ in his mystical body, has suffered more than in any place in the world.

This shall be a time of rejoicing and a time of celebration by the inhabitants of the earth as they send the news of their death to all the nations of the world via the most advanced communication system devised by the beasts.

And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. As the whole world now, will behave in a festival mood and the inhabitants of the city will come with their guest and view the lifeless bodies of the two witnesses still despising that which was good, that which was spiritual, that which was of the righteousness found only in Jesus Christ and finally that which could only give them eternal life in Godís Paradise. And here, not being able to perceive nor understand the power of God Almighty, they are ignorant to the fact that the final message is ready to be given from God to a world, which afterwards will have no more hope and no other chance to accept the salvation that can be had only by believing of Jesus Christ according to His gospel. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. These two great servants of God are willing to lay there in a state of death as all the world gleam over their dead bodies and are willing to wait of the Lord God from heaven for the next move.

Waiting until the appropriate time in the eyes of God to be raised up and given their respectful place among the saints of God in the heavens as good and faithful servants of the most high God. And at that time when celebration is at it highest pitch; the whole world celebrating and as they observe the bodies of the two witnesses making comparisons and exchanging dialogs of gratitude to the beasts; the Spirit of life from the eternal God enters into them and instantly they stand on their feet as if death had never occurred. And as if the three and a half days that are past are as if they had never existed and are yet to happen. For in a moment; the twinkling of an eye the whole world that had been observing dead flesh is now witnessing living, glorified bodies that can not only claim victory over the evil world but victory over death. This instant transition from mortality to immortality, the shock of the observation cause great fear to fall upon them that now say them in a state of glory, alive for evermore and ready to reap their rewards. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. Now for all the world to see on world television and state of the art audio/video electronics the world is watching as these to apostles ascend up to heaven. All of the enemies of the two apostles have a ringside seat to this Great work of God and are so amazed until fear is upon a godless land and its people. Even the earth itself is responding to this great act of God. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. As God receives his last two witnesses into the heaven and completes the preaching of the gospel to every nation; now the end must come; a time for Godís order to end for a while on earth and as this order is called to heaven with the two witnesses, Earthquake and destruction is upon the city and many of its inhabitants are destroyed in the same hour as the spirit of life from God entered into the slain witnesses. As they witness the power of God carrying the two up to heaven and as they stand there gazing with amazement the city is hit with a great earthquake and much of it destroyed and many people are now dead. With all of the things happening the remnant becomes so affrighted until they give glory to the God of Heaven. This is the remnant that makes up the last part of the Church and will be that remnant that will come through great tribulation. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Now the second woe is past and behold the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever Now at the sound of the seventh angel it causes a great voice in heaven to proclaim that the kingdoms of this world are to become a dominion of our Lord and His Christ who shall reign over the kingdoms of this world for ever and ever.

This brings about great joy in heaven and Here as a result were joyful acclamations of the saints and angels in heaven. Let us observe the manner of the adorations; And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

Looking at the manner of their adorations we see that they thankfully recognize the right of our God and Savior to rule and reign over all the world: The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ, They rejoice that this his reign shall never end: He shall reign for ever and ever, till all enemies be put under his feet; none shall ever wrest the scepter out of his hand. No! not in this world nor in the world to come He shall forever and forever be expected by the saints to be the one God of all the universe. Know this that all the host of the heavens are, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Here in this end time we can see this angry and resentment of the inhabitants of the world against the just appearances and the holy actings of the great God of the universe. An angry that once prevailed; yes, an angry that will continue to be a prevailing factor as God moves to further extend his wrath upon the whole earth and a time of the dead that they should be judged. Now it is time to reward the servants and the saints and all that feared the name of God and have kept his commandments; whether they be small or great and finally because of their ungodly acts and the profane crimes which they have committed against the earth and against Godís law it is not time to destroy them which have contributed to the destruction of the earth. Here we see that it is the time that all things must be subject to Him, and for the last enemy to be conquered.

Understand this: when the spirit of life from God entered into the two witnesses and they stood on their feet, while all the earth and all the heavens responded to the mighty workings of the almighty God and when the remnant of the city gave God praise and worshipped Him, as profound fear had entered into the hearts of men, the world and its inhabitants began to change for the better, even in the midst of great tribulation. There is now a movement among the inhabitants for a better world after having witness the awesome and mighty power of God. But Satan, whom is given power in this end time is not happy and resorts to perverse means to control the earth and to return it to chaos and cause the inhabitants to no longer remember the mighty works of God. Read Revelation 13:7-8; And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. All the world, except those who are sealed by the holy spirit of God are at his mercy and behold, in that he might attempt to control all men, he sends the second beast up out of the ground to work miracles for the whole world to see. (How this is accomplished is discussed in other writing of Elder Walker)(v.12-14) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. Now with this ability; the great wonders and the fire coming down from heaven the beast are positioned and ready to deceive all those upon the earth, including those that believed on the works of the two witnesses. And with this deception he is able to roam free and walk into the temple of God, That beautiful temple in the City called Jerusalem. But it is declared at the end of the lives of the two witnesses and their ascending up into heaven, that the time is now for the Lord Jesus Christ to reclaim and take dominion of all the earth. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Observe, and get understanding; what now remaineth that the Lord will come and certify the voices of the Elders sitting around the throne of God? Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. What are the finals that will cause the God of all the Heavens to come once again to earth in the visible image of Jesus Christ??

Let us look at the epistle of Apostle Paul and examine this same time line as he explained it to the saints. 2 Th. 2:3-X; Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Now, that day cannot come until there be a falling away and after this falling away that man of sin will be revealed. It is my observation that this falling away is not the falling away of individuals who are for one reason or another giving up the faith in these times, even as the numbers are growing daily. No! it is the falling away of those inhabitants who returned to the Gospel of the Kingdom as it was preached by the two witnesses to bring the last nations (Jews) to God. This being true apostasy, as they are turning from the living God in a time of great tribulation to the beasts, which seams to be working miracles and calling down fire from heaven in a demonstrated fashion until many shall be deceived. And with this, the exalted position of the beast he with this falling away is revealed as the son of perdition; that man of sin. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. This profane act of Satan, as no one can sit in the temple of God except God himself, is the same act that Satan committed in heaven in the beginning of his troubles, and for this he must be destroyed forever, being placed at the hands of God into the lake of fire where the beast and the false prophets will already be. (v.6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. Cannot be revealed except in his time; that is when he wins the confidence of those who are among the last remnant of the church and is then able to sit himself in the holy and beautiful temple of God. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Yes, that Wicked, which tried to disrupt heaven has now made the earth and its inhabitants vile and profane in the eyes of God and now must be destroyed and forever rid the universe of sin.

As Satan now is able to cause the whole world to look to the wicked and evil beast and at last sits himself upon the temple throne of God, his desire from the beginning, his desire to do so in Godís North Heaven, the time is come for Godís wrath to be given; the time is come that the dead shall be judged; and the time is come to reward the faithful. Revelation 15:1; 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. As God is now ready to bring his final wrath upon the earth; His will toward those that remaineth true and faithful to Him, even unto death, He will now bring forth. And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, [and] over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. Those that are saved by the final preaching of the Kingdom of God to the final nations according to the will and purpose of God. Those that stood up to the beasts and did not love their lives unto death; those who kept the word of God and did not fall away from his grace, regardless of the persecution and affliction at the hands of the enemy; those who were not ashamed of his gospel and did not deny his name, are now blessed by God to stand on a sea of glass, claiming victory over the beast and giving praises to God, through songs from the harps of God. Wonderful songs even from the ancient of ages the remnant of the redeemed gives thanks to God in the present of all the heavenly host. (v.3-4) And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous [are] thy works, Lord God Almighty; 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 this will all the nations do; worship before Him and witness His judgements as they are made manifest, for a thousand years, after the earth becomes subject to his dominion; a dominion which shall never end, eternal and forever according to His purpose.

Now consider this; how the angels of God appeared as they came out of heaven to execute their holy commissions; (v. 5) The temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened, It is here we see an allusion to the holiest of all, the tabernacle and temple, even, where is the mercy-seat, covering the ark of the testimony, a holy place where our high priest made intercession and sprinkled his own blood for the atonement of all who are saved and keeping his commandments, and a place where God communed with those that are his, and heard every prayer of the faithful. Now by this, that we may understand, That, the judgments God was now about to execute upon the antichristian and their interest, are the fulfilling of the prophecies and promises of his word and covenant, which were there before him, always, and of which he was mindful in all the ages. We are ever mindful that in this work he is answering the prayers of the people, which were offered to him by their great high priest Jesus Christ our Lord. That he now, herein avenging the quarrel of his own Son, and Savior Jesus Christ, whose offices and authority had been usurped, and his name being dishonored, and the great designs of his death being opposed, by antichrist and his ungodly adherents. And that in this, he was opening a wider door of liberty and freedom from all unjust for his very own people to worship him in numerous solemn assemblies, without the fear of their enemies and adversaries; a place where no more, one will have to deal with evil and any imaginations that are not holy and acceptable to God. It is from here that the last of the wrath of God will be delivered from, to fill all the earth and falling upon all men who refused to hear the final gospel messages to a world that is soon to die completely, being consumed at his coming. (v. 8) And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Now observe with understanding; Godís last wrath is now ready to be sent from heaven out of the temple of God by his angels as the seven last plagues; Revelation 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. This last wrath is now being poured out upon the earth and its inhabitants and this is the time of great tribulation, this is a time not like any other time in the history of the world. This is a time of distress, a time of perplexity, a time of pain, a time of anguish, a time for punishment, a time of anger and a time when the comfort of Godís mercy can not any more be found. Even in all the living no comfort and forgiveness can be found as all remaining living have committed blasphemy against the holy ghost. Read Matthew 12:31-32; Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the [world] to come. All remaining living upon the earth is doomed and shall not escape the wrath of God in this world nor in the world to come where their sacrifice of themselves for their own sin will never end and will always continue to exist in the lake of fire prepared for the devil and his angels. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

All the wicked, all the powerful and all the kings shall come to one mind and give their power to the beast that he and his institutions of evil could attempt to stand against the God of the universe who is now letting his wrath fall upon the nations. (Rev. 17:14) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful. All of the wrath of God continues against all the nations of the world and all are fallen, including, Babylon the great is fallen, That great and wicked institution, which shall be found in her to be a den of iniquity. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Commentary on Mystery Babylon is available by Elder Walker)

Now after the great Babylon is fallen; that great institution; that great city that committed fornication with all the kings of the earth: Revelation 19:1-2; And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

For true and righteous [are] his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. The mighty works and judgements of God Almighty, to bring His wrath upon the inhabitants of the earth must cleanse it of all sin and iniquity as our Lord and savior prepares to return to earth; the second coming, in which he will bring all his saints with Him. All of those who were part of the first resurrection; those who met the lord in the air; those who were sealed with the holy spirit of God; the hundred and forty four thousand of Israel and those who stood on the sea of glass arrayed in white robes who loved not their live unto death; and all other of those who had their names written in the Lambís Book of Life since before the foundations of the world.

And John saw and witness (v. 6) And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. He reigneth as the one God with infinite power; with absolute and total authority and as deity with no equal; our Lord Jesus Christ. And with this infinite power and authority all of the earth and all of the heavens are subject to Him as: For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. And be it know to the world: The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed [is] death (1 Cor. 15:25-26).

Now must all things be wrapped up for the Great Godís return to this earth in the visible image of the Son Jesus Christ; 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. This war against all those who rejected his name and refuse to believe on the gospel of the Kingdom and could not believe that the time of the end was at hand. As heaven is opened, in all of his glory He is revealed with attributes that are fitting for his revealing and for His assault upon that and those who are to be found ungodly and have committed ungodly acts against His holy name. 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. And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And all the saints of God that have been redeemed and have been found worthy to become a soldier in the army of the Lord and have kept on the whole armour of God that they would be able to stand with Him as He comes from heaven with his judgements to be applied against the ungodly. Eph. 6:13; Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

This same Jesus whom they crucified is made both Lord and Christ will consume the nations at his coming. Revelation 19:15-16; And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. This is the second coming of our lord and savior Jesus Christ and His return to earth to execute judgement on all the world that ungodliness and unrighteousness shall end. And all shall see Him as they will gaze at His Glory. Isa. 52:6-10; 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. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion. Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

Again in another passage it speaks of His second coming: Rev. 1:7; Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. And again in another passage it speaks of His second coming according to the proclamation of Enoch: Jude 1:14-15 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. Now is that time, that no man knoweth, heretofore, no man, no angel, and no one in all of heaven but our Mighty God whose spirit finds no pleasure in striving with man any longer and as a result all mankind now, must be destroyed that is left upon the earth. 1 Th. 2:8; And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: that is His coming with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30; And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. For all men remaining on earth shall be consumed by the glory of God which cometh with His as clouds.

Now that Jesus Christ reigns and will descend from heaven from the place He ascended and how shall all the dead who have been consumed by His coming be dealt with? Rev.19:17; And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all [men, both] free and bond, both small and great. All of the fouls that are in the midst of heaven shall now prepare themselves to feast on the remains of all the slain inhabitants of the earth; rich and poor; great and small; that the earth may be rid of fifth and sin and corruption when he places His holy feet on the Mountain of Olives.

This is the second coming to earth of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ; coming at the end of great tribulation and whose coming marks the end to the worst of times ever in the history of the world; manís total rejection of the word of god and Godís final wrath upon man. Read 2 Th. 2:9-10; Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And now, Rev 19:19; And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. Ps 2:10; Be wise now therefore, O you kings, be instructed, you rulers of the earth; kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, The battle joined. The enemy falls quick with great fury, headed by the beast, and the kings of the earth; the powers of earth and hell gathered, to make their utmost effort. And evermore, the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. In as much as the beast and the false prophet are total apostasy; loveth and maketh a lie to deceive the nations; and are pure abomination unto the Lord Jesus they are the first to be cast in to the lake of fire, burning with brimstone. Their works being so much more ungodly than any other; their judgement cometh first and without delay at His coming.

Now the victory gained by the great and glorious head of the church, the Lord Jesus Christ: The beast and the false prophet, the leaders of the army, are each taken prisoners, both he who led them by power and he who led them by policy and falsehood. these are taken and cast into the burning lake, made incapable of molesting the church of Jesus Christ any more; not in that present world nor in that world which is yet to come. And all their followers, whether officers or just common soldiers, are to be given up to military execution, and made a feast for the fowls of heaven, all the birds of prey. Though the divine vengeance will chiefly fall upon the beast, and the false prophet, yet there shall be no excuse to those who will fight under their banner that they only followed their leaders and obeyed their command; since they would fight for them, they must fall and perish with them. For the Lord God has spoken and His voice commands the whole world and all the universe. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which [sword] proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. The second coming of Jesus Christ renders the earth void of human life and of all things that are not godly as the dominion of Jesus Christ extends to all the universe, leaving only the father of all sin, that old Satan to be dealt with.

It is not time to deal with this wicked and ungodly; the father of all sin; And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. Now that dominion over all the earth, given to the two adams and stolen by Satan, through their transgression is in this end taken back by the Christ. And as this dominion is now given to the saints of God who reigneth with the Lord Christ in all the world, that old Satan is bound powerless, as he has now lost that dominion taken from Adam, in the bottomless pit for a thousand years. Rev. 20:4-6; And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This [is] the first resurrection. Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

This is an accounting of the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy as given to Elder Charles Ford Walker, a Chief Elder of Godís Presbytery. This revelation is also given to those other men of God who are willing to sit under the counsel of God and wait for His voice to be heard. This revelation, regardless of whom it is given will be the same and all men of God will speak with the same voice as that same inspiration has come and will come upon each of them. As there are no scriptures which support the second coming of Christ at any time other than at the close of the 70th week of Danielís Prophecy or at the end of the Great Tribulation that is to come upon all the earth. Elder Walker has not attempted to answer any of the thousands of other questions pertaining to this end time except the last week of Danielís Prophecy. With all of your questions about this epistle you can always write to Elder Walker for further discussion at: apostolicminister@apostolic-ministries.net God bless you and may He keep you and your family until that day.
