Scheduled Events in the Diary of God
The facts presented in this booklet show that the Almighty is currently using His calendar as the basis of His 'Diary' to organise His work. They also show that He has appointed certain days, seasons and years in His 'diary' on which He has scheduled Himself to perform His mightiest deeds. He calls these appointed times His Sabbaths, His Feasts. In Appendix C we have seen how the Time Prophecies of Daniel & Revelation slot into periods between the Feasts. Indeed, knowledge of the sacred Feasts of the God of Israel is the key to understanding Bible prophecy.
Now let us very briefly consider those prophecies.
The first question that comes to mind is: When do those Time Prophecies occur? The answer is: they occur at the 'in the time of the end, a period of time which starts about seven years before the Saviour returns to earth. The Time Prophecies being referred to will occur, we are told, at the crisis at the end of this age; the 'time of the end. When that soon-coming crisis begins, and it is almost upon us, the following events are predicted to occur:
Briefly, that is the sequence of events entered in the Diary of Jehovah, the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel; events which are prophesied to begin shortly. See the booklet entitled Understand the Revelation where many of the above mentioned events are explained. The reader is advised to pay heed to these prophecies, for they are bound to happen. Blindly rejecting their warning messages and persisting in sin would amount to foolishness of the highest order, because:
- The shake up of our solar system as portrayed under the 6th Seal of Revelation 6:12-17. This event will be accompanied by awesome signs in the sun, moon and stars and a global earthquake which will devastate the cities of the whole world. Wait for this event. It is near.
- The sealing of the 144,000 servants of God will then take place.(Rev.7) The 144,000 are called 'Israelites.' This means that they are true believers in Yahweh the Almighty God of Israel. This number will obviously include tens of thousands of blood-born descendants of Jacob. Without a doubt it will also include obedient Gentile believers, who have been grafted into one or the other of the 12 tribes of Israel; believers who do not baulk at the idea of being called Israelites or Jews! These believers will all have the Father's name in their foreheads; which means they will not only know the sacred names, multiplied millions of men and angels already know the names of the Father and Son, but they will be absolutely holy people who will reflect Yahweh's character and obey His commandments.
- After the sealing of the 144000, the devastation under the first four trumpets of Rev. 8 will begin. The events under the 6th seal, the sealing of the 144,000 and the first four trumpets of the 7th seal could all take place in the first few months of the last seven year period before Christ returns.
- At Trumpet No.5 the Abyss, an angel penitentiary where the Beast is currently being held captive, will be opened and theAntichrist will come forth leading a horde of evil angels. They will torment mankind for a period of 5 literal months; that is, all except those who have been sealed with the Father's name, His character, His law. (Rev.9)
- The Antichrist will then magnify himself above all gods and will enter and desecrate the heavenly sanctuary for a period of 2300 days. During the latter part of this period, the Antichrist will capture the city of Jerusalem and kill Yahweh's Two Witnesses. He will then begin a 42 month Reign of Terror on earth. (Dan.7:25, Rev.11 & 13) During his evil reign no one will be able to buy and sell unless they have his Mark. Prophecy tells us that during Trumpet No.6 one third of mankind, about 2,000,000,000 souls, will die. It will be a slaughter greater by far than anything the world has ever seen. See Who/What is the Antichrist? and The Mark of the Beast for further information.
- During the latter half of the 2300 day period, the people of God will be escorted by holy angels out of the world's cities and miraculously fed and protected by God for 1260 days. This Coming Exodus is described in Revelation 12:6 and Ezekiel 20:35-44. Yes, believe it or not, Yahweh's church is to be miraculously protected and fed for 1260 days during the 6th and 7th Trumpets of Revelation.
- During this period of time the seven last plagues will be poured out on mankind. (Rev. 15)
- Babylon the Great, the spiritual harlot city of the universe, will then be overthrown; resulting in a total collapse in world trade. (Rev.18)
- Finally Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) will return to earth as promised. (Matt.24) He will descend on the Mount of Olives and liberate the city of Jerusalem. (Zech.14:3-5)
- At the Saviour's return the Antichrist will be burned to death in a lake of fire: and Satan the Devil, the one who gave the Antichrist power and authority, will be locked in the Bottomless Pit (Abyss) for a period of 1000 years. Note: that the Antichrist and the Devil are not the same being. They are two separate beings and one dies a thousand years before the other. (Rev.19:19 to Rev.20:3)
- The Messiah's 1000 year Reign of Peace will then begin. (Rev.20, Zech.14:6-21)
- After the millennium Satan will be loosed from the Abyss. He will then vainly try to muster his forces to overthrow the Almighty: but he will perish in the attempt and, like the Antichrist a thousand years before, Satan will be incinerated in the lake of fire. (Rev.20:7-10)
- The Day of Judgement will then arrive and all those whose names are not found in the Book of Life will also be cast into the lake of fire. From that second death there is no return. (Rev.20:11-15, Malachi 4)
- The Almighty will then create a new heaven and a new earth in which His saints will dwell in peace and harmony for all time. (Rev.21 & 22)
