Dear Reader,

In these times of great instability and uncertainty, God would relieve the burden of His people with instructions of what to do and when to do it. That instruction is in His Holy Word for all who will receive it. This document will inform you as to exactly when to sell your property and invest in the final cause of God involving planet earth.

Before reading this document, it would be wise of you to pray about the following two statements by Ellen White, and keep them full in mind as you read the remainder of the vision. I purposefully repeat (MORE THAN ONCE) some aspects that I believe to be important for reasons of emphasis.

Here is a prophetic chart of the events delineated in this document: propheticchart.doc (Allow some time for downloading).

“The light that Daniel received from God was given especially for these last days. The visions he saw by the banks of the Ulai and the Hiddekel, the great rivers of Shinar, are now in process of fulfillment, and all the events foretold will soon [FUTURE] come to pass.” {TM 112.3, 113}

 

The light Daniel received in his visions by the banks of the Ulai and the Hiddekel is recorded in Daniel 8 and 10. See Daniel 8:2 on the Ulai and Daniel 10:4 on the Hiddekel. Remember, the great point is that ALL THE EVENTS of the visions by the Ulai and the Hiddekel WILL SOON COME TO PASS.

 

Many are misinterpreting Ellen White’s words about time. She specified “prophetic time,” which is day for a year time when she said there will be no more tracing of time. Any literal time in the future will not be a test because it will not fail as the date of 1844 did. If this is not true, Ellen White is made a false prophet by her own words in saying that ALL THE EVENTS Daniel envisioned by the rivers Ulai and Hiddekel will come to pass. So those who interpret Ellen White’s words on time to mean ALL TIME, including literal time, make her a false prophet by their false interpretation.

 

 “The light that Daniel received direct from God was given especially for these last days. The visions he saw by the banks of the Ulai and the Hiddekel, the great rivers of Shinar, are now in process of fulfillment, and all the events foretold will soon come to pass.”--Letter 134, May 27, 1898, to J. H. Kellogg.

The Hiddekel is the same as the present-day Tigris river and is referred to in only one other place in the Bible, namely, Dan. 10:4, where in the English version the name is transliterated simply "Hiddekel" as taken from the following link: The Jewish Encyclopedia:

Also, it would be well to study this link: http://omega77.tripod.com/daniel8.htm

 

“The Sabbath question will be the issue in the great conflict in which all the world will act a part.[Rev. 13:4-8, 10 quoted.] This ENTIRE CHAPTER is a revelation of what will surely take place (future) [Rev. 13:11, 15-17 quoted]” E.G. White, (MS 88, 1897). SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 7a, p. 979. Col. 2.

 

Now read Revelation 13:1-5, where it says that there will be a 42 month (3 ½ year period) AFTER the wound is healed. Obviously the wound is not fully healed yet! The wound is fully healed when the National Sunday Law is first legislated.

 

This is a crucial exercise for those who believe that Ellen White said there is no more time prophesies. That is not what she said. She said that there will be no more prophetic time (day for a year) prophesies, and she said that because from circa 1844 and on for a number of years, some were resetting the time for the 2300 days. Her purpose was to put a stop to that practice.

 

The final period of earth’s history involves at least a 3 ½ year (42 month) period of time. In the Bible, a month equals 30 days. The antichrist reigns for 1260 days or 42 months, Revelation 13:1-5, AFTER the wound is healed. This coincides with the prefigure of A.D. 66, when Cestius first arrived on Jewish soil. It was not until 3 ½ years later that Jerusalem was destroyed. Ellen White equates the Sunday Law to the landing of Cestius on Jewish soil, Testimonies, Vol. 5, 451, 464.

 

The Sunday law will not be ENFORCED when it is first legislated into law. It will be ENFORCED on day 1290. I will simplify it all as follows:

 

·       Day 1: Sunday Law is Legislated but not enforced.

·       Day 1260: A 30 day warning period will be given to take the mark.

·       Day 1290: The Sunday law will be enforced on penalty of no buy and sell and/or death.

 

Note: There will be a 30 day warning period beginning on day 1260 to take the mark. That 30 day period added to 1260 = 1290 days. On day 1290 a no buy and sell law and a death penalty will ensue to all who refuse to take the mark of the beast.

 

The scenario at the end is exactly what occurred in A.D. 66. How do we know this for sure? Ellen White said that we do not flee to the mountains at the time the Sunday law is first legislated, which event she equates to landing of Cestius on Jewish soil in A.D. 66. She says that at the inception of the Sunday Law, we are to move from the cities to the smaller towns preparatory to leaving for the mountains. In A.D. 66, the Romans landed on Jewish soil and then retreated. At that retreating, the faithful Jews fled to Pella. Fleeing to Pella was parallel to us moving to smaller towns preparatory to fleeing to more secluded places in the mountains because Pella was a lush valley will plenty of water and it was/is surrounded by mountains the Christians could flee to 3 ½ years later when Titus broadened his search for Jews beyond Jerusalem.

 

In the end-time scenario, there is a three and one-half year time-frame from the inception of the Sunday Law until it is enforced. This coincides with the 3 ½ years which elapsed from the time Cestius first landed on Jewish soil in A.D. 66 to the time Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed in A.D. 70.

“In the autumn of A.D. 66, Cestius next concentrated his entire force upon Jerusalem.  He arrived during the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles, and although it was Sabbath, the Jews abandoned their religious rites and rushed out to attack Cestius’ troops.  To the amazement of both Romans and Jews, they broke the Roman ranks.  Indeed, Josephus declares that only a flank attack by a force of footmen and cavalry saved Cestius’ forces.  More than 500 Roman soldiers were killed whereas the Jews lost only 22 men (War ii. 198, 2 [519]).  At this point Agrippa sent an embassy to the Jews; their reaction was to attack his representatives, killing one and wounding the other.  Encouraged by a promise of the royalist party in Jerusalem to open the gates for him, Cestius then gathered his troops to a fresh assault, and penetrated as far as the north wall of the Temple.  Then an astounding thing happened: Cestius withdrew his troops, and placed himself strategically in such a poor position among the Judean hills that the Jews were able to attack him and kill more than 5,000 infantry and nearly 500 cavalry, including many officers, as well as to capture much materiel. 

 

A Lull in the Storm.—The defeat and withdrawal of Cestius gave many of the conservative Jews a chance to flee from Jerusalem.  Some of them joined Agrippa, others sought quiet in country places, and still others left the country entirely.  It was at this time that the Christians in Jerusalem fled in accordance with the warning of Jesus recorded in Matt. 24:15-19.  According to Eusebius, the 4th-century historian, the Christians in Jerusalem had been warned by prophets before the war began that they should leave the doomed city and find refuge at Pella in Peraea.  They now took this opportunity to make good their escape (Ecclesiastical History iii. 5, 3).” SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 5, 74, 75.

The 1260, 1290 and 1335 Day Prophesies of Daniel 12

The following account is what I have believed and taught since the mid-1980's, but saw and had confirmed in a most singularly powerful vision occurring at approximately 5 AM, March 7, 2001. The reason for these literal time periods is to preserve the courage of the saints during the greatest time of trouble ever known to man. Man fears the unknown, so it will obviously encourage the Saints to know these timelines. Only the 144,000 will need to know the entire schema of time because only they will endure the length of that time and be translated without seeing death. The 144,000 will know they are part of the 144,000 after the passing of day 1335. The reasons for this knowledge will be elaborated on further into this revelation.

I have been aware of the most sophisticated arguments against literal time for decades, but they are the result of misinterpretation. I was shown an explanation of the following statement by Ellen G. White:

"The first and second angels' messages were to be proclaimed, but no further light was to be revealed before these messages had done their specific work. This is represented by the angel standing with one foot on the sea, proclaiming with a most solemn oath that time should be no longer.
This time, which the angel declares with a solemn oath, is not the end of this world's history, neither of probationary time, but of prophetic [day for a year] time, which should precede the advent of our Lord. That is, the people will not have another message upon definite time. After this period of time, reaching from 1842 to 1844, there can be no definite tracing of the prophetic time (day for a year time). The longest reckoning reaches to the autumn of 1844." E.G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 7a, p. 971.

Prophetic Time Versus Literal Time

It would behoove us to very closely examine the following statement by Mrs. Ellen White:

     “This time, which the angel declares with a solemn oath, is not the end of this world's history, neither of probationary time, but of prophetic time, which should precede the advent of our Lord. That is, the people will not have another message upon definite time. After this period of time, reaching from 1842 to 1844, there can be no definite tracing of the prophetic time. The longest reckoning reaches to the autumn of 1844.” {7BC 971.7}

 

To their own detriment, many SDA’s have failed to note in the above statement that Ellen White twice says: “prophetic time.” There is no more definite tracing of prophetic time, which is to be understood as day for a year time. The longest reckoning of prophetic time (day for a year time) did indeed reach to the autumn of 1844. That is proof that Ellen White is speaking of prophetic (day for a year time) because that is the type of time that reached to the autumn of 1844. Ellen White is not speaking of literal time prophesies.

I was shown that we would never again be tested by any failure of any definite prophetic time (day for a year) message(s) as was the case in 1844, because prophetic time (day for a year time) prophesies ended in 1844, but that there are literal time prophesies that apply to the end-time. Daniel says twice in Daniel 8, that his prophesy applies at the end-time.[1]

Even partial healing of the wound did not occur until 1929, when the Lateran Treaty restored temporal power to the pope, who was given the rule of Vatican City. Thus, that 42 month period of definite, literal time could not have been fulfilled prior to the healing of the wound.

Ellen White said all the messages to the seven churches apply to the end of time and that the 10 days of Revelation 2:10, has another end-time application in literal time days.[2]

Rev 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.”

The majority of martyrs will occur in this time-frame as seed for fruit. There will indeed be many martyrs as seed for fruit. The martyrdom will begin somewhat on day 1260 because Ellen White says that some will anticipate the decree that is set to be enforced on day 1290. The martyrdom will continue from day 1290-1335. Those who remain alive until day 1335 will know they are part of the 144,000 because probation will close at that time and Ellen White says that there are no more martyrs after the close of probation.

There is a literal end-time relation to the ten days of tribulation spoken of in Revelation 2:10, which is the same time of tribulation as mentioned in Daniel 12:1, and that this also refers to definite time. I was shown this three times. All who interpret that there is no more definite time to be fulfilled should be forced to deal with these definite time lines.

Destruction of Jerusalem, A.D. 70, and A.D. 66 Fleeing a Prefigure Type

Ellen White said that the time of the Jews extending from A.D. 27-70, was a prefigure symbolizing the destruction of the world at the end-time, but that the destruction begins at His Sanctuary, Ezekiel 9:6, “Jerusalem,” the apostate SDA church. Ellen White said that Ezekiel 9 has another LITERAL fulfillment and there can be no doubt that the history of the Jews from A.D. 27-70 was a fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 and 22:17-31. The time span from A.D. 27-70 included the time Jesus began to “gather out” from the apostate Jewish church, those who would take the gospel to the world. Desire of Ages, p. 232.

God showed me that the entire history found in The Great Controversy, Chapter 1, is a prefigure of what will occur at the end-time. This prefigured destruction begins at His Sanctuary, “Jerusalem,” the apostate professing SDA church, those who had been privileged with great light, the house of Jacob, Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211 and Ezekiel 9:6.

In A.D. 66, the Romans descended upon Jewish soil some furlongs from Jerusalem. This was considered an abomination of desolation. Ellen White likens this act to the National Sunday law legislation, Testimonies, Vol. 5, 451, 464.

“As the approach of the Roman armies was a sign to the disciples of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, so may this apostasy [The Sunday Law in context] be a sign to us that the limit of God's forbearance is reached, that the measure of our nation's iniquity is full, and that the angel of mercy is about to take her flight, never to return. The people of God will then be plunged into those scenes of affliction and distress which prophets have described as the time of Jacob's trouble. The cries of the faithful, persecuted ones ascend to heaven. And as the blood of Abel cried from the ground, there are voices also crying to God from martyrs' graves, from the sepulchers of the sea, from mountain caverns, from convent vaults: "How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?" {5T 451.2}

“It is no time now for God's people to be fixing their affections or laying up their treasure in the world. The time is not far distant, when, like the early disciples, we shall be forced to seek a refuge in desolate and solitary places. As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the decree enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains. And now, instead of seeking expensive dwellings here, we should be preparing to move to a better country, even a heavenly. Instead of spending our means in self-gratification, we should be studying to economize.”  Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 464-5.

Clearly, we do not flee to the mountains at the time of the initial legislation of the National Sunday Law. At first, there will be no enforcement of the law and no penalty for its violation. If there was even a no buy and sell enforcement at the commencement of the Sunday Law, we could not survive in small towns preparatory to fleeing to the mountains.

However, as judgments multiply in the land, those judgments will be blamed on those who do not keep Sunday sacred. The Sunday law will not be enforced until 1290 days after the initial law is legislated. At day 1260 after Sunday law legislation, there will be a 30 day warning that penalties are forthcoming at the end of 30 days. The penalties will be enforced at the end of that 30 day warning period. Daniel 12:11 says that there are 1290 days from the removing of the continual (God’s law and more specifically the Sabbath commandment). That is when the mark will be enforced.

The A.D. 66 Fleeing for 3 ½ Years

In A.D. 66, the Romans landed on Jewish soil but they did not destroy the temple and the city of Jerusalem at that time. There were some battles, but Cestius, the Roman General, withdrew his troops and returned to Rome. This was the prophesied respite at which the Christian Jews were to flee and they fled to Pella. They fled Jerusalem in the autumn of A.D. 66, 3 ½ years before the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. This 3 ½ year time-frame was a PREFIGURE of a same time period at the end of time because that even is recorded in Chapter 1 of The Great Controversy, and Ellen White said that chapter was a prefigure of the destruction of the world at the end-time, BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, 5T 211. Here is a brief overview of the end-time scenario I was shown. It should be kept in mind that in Bible reckoning, a month is 30 days.

1.    National Sunday Law legislated. Penalties from day 1 to 1260 will include fine’s and/or imprisonment. This is the taking away of the daily or the continuum—God’s law. Daniel 12:11 says that from the time that the daily shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.  So we have two time lines, the 1260 and the 1290 of Daniel 12. The difference between the two is the 30 days of warning--1290 minus 30 =1260.

2.    During the first 1260 day period, God’s judgments begin to be poured out because of the violation of His law. These judgments will increase in severity and will be blamed on those who are not keeping Sunday Sacred. That is why it is decided that the Sunday Law will be enforced by death on day 1290, after a 30 day warning period extending from day 1260-1290.

3.    Ellen White parallels the legislation of the NationalSunday Law with the first ascendance of Roman soldiers on Jewish soil in A.D. 66.  It will then be time to move to smaller towns preparatory to leaving later for the mountains. 5T 464-5 (above).

4.    We know that there will be 42 months (3 ½ years) after the wound heals, Rev. 13:1-5.

5.    According to Ellen White, the SDA church will advocate Sunday sacredness?! Yes. Here it is from Ellen White: "The Lord has a controversy with His professed people in these last days. In this controversy men in responsible positions will take a course directly opposite to that pursued by Nehemiah.  They will not only ignore and despise the Sabbath themselves, but they will try to keep it from others by burying it beneath the rubbish of custom and tradition.  In churches and in large gatherings in the open air, ministers will urge upon the people the necessity of keeping the first day of the week.  There are calamities on sea and land: and these calamities will increase, one disaster following close upon another; and the little band of conscientious Sabbath-keepers will be pointed out as the ones who are bringing the wrath of God upon the world by their disregard of Sunday."  R & H 3-18-1884. [Men in responsible positions taking a course different from Nehemiah can only refer to a counterpart of the Jews, namely SDA’s].

By way of review, all of the events involved in the destruction of Jerusalem (Chapter 1, Great Controversy) from the time of the planting of the Roman banner or the Abomination of Desolation on Jewish soil, in the autumn of A.D. 66, and culminating in the destruction of the Temple and the city of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, was a prefigure. I was shown that The Great Controversy, p. 25, 1911 edition, says that this event was a prefigure, a type, which demands an antitypical 3 1/2 year fulfillment. Ellen White confirms this by saying that Ezekiel 9, will have another literal fulfillment. No one could deny that Ezekiel 9 was involved with the Destruction of Jerusalem, as was Ezekiel 22:17-31.

The killing of martyrs will "legally" begin on day 1290, but Ellen White said that government officials will turn their heads away from some killings that will occur in anticipation of the first death decree.

There are two death decrees. The first one occurs at the end of the 1290 days, and will be the death decree responsible for the many martyrs. Most of the martyrs will occur in the 45 day period from the 1290 to the 1335. The second death decree occurs per Great Controversy 635, occurs when Satan tries to rid the earth of the 144,000 saints in one decisive blow, but fails because this is when Christ intervenes on their behalf.

God has encouragement and instruction for His people in the final conflict of the great controversy between Christ and Satan. Satan would prefer that you be denied that encouragement and instruction because he knows that where there is no vision the people perish for a lack of knowledge. Satan has been just as artful, or more so, in getting Seventh-day Adventists to misinterpret their prophet and scripture, than he was in the case of the Jews, our counterpart example.

I was taken in vision to Daniel 12. I was told three times that Daniel 12:1 gives the setting of the chapter, and that its end-day fulfillment begins after Michael stands up, and that He will not stand up until the time of the legislation of the National Sunday Law, when the earth thus declares His law null and void, (break one, break all) and that event will begin the judging of the living, because they cannot be judged before making their decision to obey God or man, and receiving the great test of obedience to God's Holy Day. I was shown that those who knew the Sabbath truth, but gave it up prior to this test, have already judged themselves. They thus have taken their eyes off the Midnight Cry Lighted Path, making it impossible for them to get on the path again, Word to the Little Flock, p. 14.

I saw that the abomination of desolation is the Sunday Law, the Roman Banner. Next, for the 10 day period of Rev. 2:10, occurring from day 1290 to day 1300. I saw the lives of many faithful martyrs during those days that are sacrificed as "seed for fruit" during the ensuing harvest of the continuing Loud Cry. Most deaths occur between the end of the 1290, and 1300 because that is the time the Mark is first enforced, and all will have to make a decision at that time. This is why the martyrdom of the faithful “seed for fruit” occurs during the 10 days, but the manifestation of Ezekiel 9 upon the SDA church will extend from day 1260 to day 1335, but mainly from day 1290 to 1335.

Those who come to the 1335th day are blessed because they know that if they have fled to the mountains in that time, they are safe. Those who flee to the mountains are brought into covenant with the Lord, Ezekiel 20:34-38. They will continue to give the Loud Cry from wilderness outposts at least from day 1260 to day 1335. We will have to work from wilderness outposts from day 1260 to day 1335, because Ellen White said that some will anticipate the first death decree which occurs on day 1290, by killing from day 1260 when the 30 day warning is given. If some take the Mark without knowing what they are doing, and later recant when they hear the truth of the Loud cry, they will be saved. It only makes sense that if we continue to witness at least until day 1335, some who hear the message after the death decree might accept it even though they have taken the mark, but they will be saved. However, they must give their life in testament of their faith because they won’t be one of the 144,000, and only the 144,000 have the character that is developed over time. They are like the thief on the cross--they are saved, but they still must die.

The 30 days intervening between the 1260th day and the 1290th day, constitute a time of respite for fleeing to the mountains. The saints will be in small towns from the time of the legislation of the National Sunday Law to day 1260, (3 ½ years), after which time they flee to the wilderness/mountains like the true Christians who fled to Pella in the autumn of A.D. 66-A.D. – 70 A.D.

Some will not be able to flee, but will give their lives as martyrs in testimony to their fidelity to God. We should pray for and cultivate the character that will be required to make this great sacrifice. However, some who are not able to flee and who are imprisoned, will be saved alive when Christ comes to be delivered and translated without seeing death.

This is so important I will summarize again. I will paraphrase Daniel 12:11, 12:

"And from the time that the daily sacrifice (the continual--law and Sabbath) shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate (the National Sunday Law) is ENFORCED BY PENALTY, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days" (because the 10 days of faithful martyrs (Rev. 2:10) is over, having occurred from day 1290-1300-1335) and the 144,000 will have completed their fleeing to the mountains. Those who have been true reformers in giving a faithful warning to the church will thus know that they will survive to be translated without seeing death. This was the case in the prefigure of AD 66-70, and God showed me this from that prefigure. A prefigure demands a similar antitypical fulfillment. Every Christian who fled to the mountains in the prefigure was saved. Thank you Lord for the prefigure type!

The 144,000 saints will, at the inception of the National Sunday Law, move to smaller towns and villages. On the 1260th day after the passing of the Sunday Law, there will be a thirty day warning given that all who fail to obey the law after that time will be in danger of great penalty, even death, and will not be able to buy nor sell if they will not obey the Sunday law (Rev. 13:17). During this 30-day period of respite, the 144,000 will flee to the mountains and other secluded places, just as in the AD 66-70 type, the faithful Jews fled to Pella first, and then 3 1/2 years later to the mountains of Pella. It is just after this time (thirty day warning time) and even in anticipation of it for others, that true and faithful martyrs will be killed as seed for fruit. God showed me that some will be killed not for the sake of obeying Christ, but for fiercely opposing such an encroachment upon their freedom. I think of Jews who won’t accept the Sunday Law, but don’t accept Christ as well.

The entire 144,000 Zion bride remnant flee at the proper time, and will be spared, as were the true Christians in 66 AD, who fled to the mountains of Pella in the land of Peraea. Again, the literal ten days of slaughter (Rev. 2:10)[3] of true saints (martyrs) as seed for fruit, will occur during the time interval between the 1290th and the 1300th and 1335th  days. These martyrs are not of the 144,000, of course, but represent the faithful bridesmaids guests at the wedding, see The Great Controversy, 426-7.

Two Periods of Respite

In the type of AD 66-70, the first respite came when Cestius planted the Roman banner on Jewish soil, and then left Jerusalem. When he left, this was the time of respite in which all true Christians fled to the small town of Pella, in the land of Peraea, SDA Bible Commentary, vol. 5, pp. 74-77. When Titus returned three and one-half years later to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple, the Jews in Pella fled to the mountains of Pella. Likewise, at the inception of the National Sunday Law in the USA, all true Christians will move to smaller towns, prior to fleeing to the mountains and other secluded places at the respite provided 1260 days later, at which time a 30 day warning will be given before stringent enforcement of the Sunday Law by severe penalty, even death. This thirty day warning period is also a respite time, when all true Christians will flee to more secluded places in the mountains and deserts. I was instructed three times: "This is the true Testimony." I replied three times: "Amen!," Amen!," Amen! and thank you Lord God Jehovah!"

The Final Time to Sell All Property and Give All to Promoting the Cause of God

All property should be sold before the end of the 1260 day period, for we will have to flee during the 30 day warning period when we will be ordered to take the Mark or else!

It takes time to close property sales so one should begin selling off about six months before day 1260. However, there is no doubt that the value of money will lessen before that time so one should consider the wisdom of selling before that time, and renting instead. This option should be weighed with retaining property where one might earn his/her livelihood.

One should keep in mind that Ellen White says national apostasy is followed by national ruin. According to Daniel 8:8, 9, the great horn (power) is broken BEFORE the little horn (beast power) arises. This factor as well should be considered in determining when to sell your property and putting the money in God’s cause of warning others of the impending doom.

I did not see the day nor hour, nor the year of Jesus' coming. This will occur at some undetermined time soon after the 1335 days are over. I did not see the exact time of probation’s close, but I believe it will be on day 1335.

I was pointed to Daniel 7:25, and shown that this prophecy has a literal 3 1/2 year end-time application and this time is given to the beast power after the fourth kingdom aggregates its global governing body or World Government. That power gives its power to the little horn, which is given this time (42 months Rev. 13:1-5) to wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws.

"As the [first] decree issued by the various rulers of Christendom against commandment keepers shall withdraw the protection of government and abandon them to those who desire their destruction, the people of God will flee from the cities and villages and associate together in companies, dwelling in the most desolate and solitary places. Many will find refuge in the strongholds of the mountains. Like the Christians of the Piedmont valleys, they will make the high places of the earth their sanctuaries and will thank God for 'the munitions of rocks.' Isaiah 33:16. But many of all nations and of all classes, high and low, rich and poor, black and white, will be cast into the most unjust and cruel bondage. The beloved of God pass weary days [potentially at least from day 1260 to day 1335], bound in chains, shut in by prison bars, sentenced to be slain, some apparently left to die of starvation in dark and loathsome dungeons. No human ear is open to hear their moans; no human hand is ready to lend them help." The Great Controversy, 626. This is in contradistinction to the death decree described on page 635, where we find:

Final death decree:

"It will be determined to strike in one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof.
The people of God--some in prison cells, some hidden in solitary retreats in the forests and the mountains [since the time of the decree of page 626]--still plead for divine protection, while in every quarter companies of armed men, urged on by hosts of evil angels, are preparing for the work of death. It is now, in the hour of utmost extremity that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of His chosen." The Great Controversy, p. 635.

The above statement is proof that even some who are not able to flee to the mountains will endure to the end and be saved and translated without seeing death. This will encourage those who are imprisoned.

So there are two distinct death decrees. At the first one, men are caught, put in bondage, and even killed [remember Ellen White said there will be many martyrs]. At the second death decree, God's people are all delivered. By being delivered, I do not mean translated yet. I mean that they (the 144,000) will not thereafter be killed. They will await the voice of God.

Some SDA leaders have produced charts depicting the same days I deal with. They are errant because they demand fleeing to the mountains at the inception of the National Sunday Law.

[1] Dan 8:17  So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end [shall be] the vision.

 

Dan 8:19  And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end [shall be].

The messages [plural] given to the churches in Asia, portray the state of things existing in the churches of the religious world today. The names of the churches are symbolic of the Christian church in different periods of the Christian era the number of the churches--SEVEN--indicates completeness and is symbolic of the fact that the messages [plural] extend to the end of time, and are enforced today while the figures used are symbolic of the state of God's professed people,--the wheat developing among the tares truth; standing on its own eternal basis in contrast with error.” Ms 81, 1900, pp. 17, 18. ("Solomon's Reign," 1900.) {1MR 372.2}
