“Habakkuk 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
“Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.”
CHRONOLOGY OF LAST DAY EVENTS
We are currently in the shaking time now. The time when “everything that can be shaken will be shaken. The Lord will not excuse those who know the truth if they do not in word and deed obey His commands.—Testimonies for the Church 6:332 (1900). LDE 173.4”. The mark of the beast crisis, which is Sunday law also follows in the midst of the shaking, this test( Sunday law ) will finally separate the wheat from the tares in God’s professed people when persecution hits, then latter rain will fall upon those who were sealed. They(the sealed) give the loud cry to finally bring all God’s jewels(people) from Babylon(fallen churches) which has COMPLETELY FALLEN BY THEN AND JUDGEMENT( the seven last plagues )COMING UPON HER. While giving their final testimony, many will be imprisoned, some brought before kings and rulers, magistrates, many will die as martyrs.“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.”
AFTER THIS FINAL WORK( LOUD CRY BY THE SEALED ), THE THIRD ANGEL’S MESSAGE WILL COMPLETELY CLOSE, HENCE PROBATION CLOSED.
The final judgment of God foretold in revelation 16 and forewarned in revelation 14:9-11, finally falls upon the wicked. Thus the seven fiery plagues falls upon all those who received the mark( Sunday worship ) of the beast and worshipped his image.
In the midst of the falling plagues, the wicked( those who refused God’s seal and received the mark of the beast ) will be enraged and being astir by Satan, they will accuse God’s faithful few to be the cause of their destruction, and all around the world, Satan and his evil angels will astir all the wicked everywhere to work for the faithful few, God’s commandment keeping people destruction. Thus a death decree will be enacted and God’s people will be plunged into that great time of trouble foretold by God’s prophets. It’s also called jacob’s time of trouble.
IT CANNOT BE ANTICIPATED HOW GREAT THE ANGUISH WILL BE!!! PREPARE IN THE LORD NOW.
GOD’S FAITHFUL FEW WILL BE CRYING AND PLEADING DAY AND NIGHT FOR FINAL DELIVERANCE. AND AT LAST, IN THE MIDST OF THE SEVENTH PLAGUE, THE SPECIAL RESURRECTION TAKES PLACE AND DELIVERANCE AT LAST, THE COMING OF JESUS IS SEEN IN THE CLOUDS!!! Soon there appears in the east a small black cloud, about half the size of a man’s hand. It is the cloud which surrounds the Saviour and which seems in the distance to be shrouded in darkness. The people of God know this to be the sign of the Son of man. In solemn silence they gaze upon it as it draws nearer the earth, becoming lighter and more glorious, until it is a great white cloud, its base a glory like consuming fire, and above it the rainbow of the covenant. Jesus rides forth as a mighty conqueror. Not now a “Man of Sorrows,” to drink the bitter cup of shame and woe, He comes, victor in heaven and earth, to judge the living and the dead. “Faithful and True,” “in righteousness He doth judge and make war.” And “the armies which were in heaven” (Revelation 19:11, 14) follow Him. With anthems of celestial melody the holy angels, a vast, unnumbered throng, attend Him on His way. The firmament seems filled with radiant forms—“ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands.” No human pen can portray the scene; no mortal mind is adequate to conceive its splendor. “His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise. And His brightness was as the light.” Habakkuk 3:3, 4. As the living cloud comes still nearer, every eye beholds the Prince of life. No crown of thorns now mars that sacred head; but a diadem of glory rests on His holy brow. His countenance outshines the dazzling brightness of the noonday sun. “And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords.” Revelation 19:16…. DD 49.4
THE WICKED WHO SURVIVED THE FIERY PLAGUES ARE AT LAST SLAIN BY THE BRIGHTNESS OF JESUS COMING(2 Thessalonians 2:8). 2 Thessalonians 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
NO SECRET RAPTURE!!! ALL EYES SHALL SEE THE COMING KING IN GLORY AND GREAT NOISE.“Thessalonians 4:16 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”
THE FIRST RESURRECTION TAKES PLACE WHEN JESUS COMES.
The Feet Of Jesus Shall Not Touch The EARTH.
THE WICKED LIVING ARE SLAIN BY THE BRIGHTNESS OF JESUS AND THE REDEEMED CAUGHT UP TOGETHER IN THE AIR TO MEET JESUS.
The redeemed reign with Jesus thousand years in heaven while they judge the wicked. Satan will also be bound in the darkness and desolate earth for thousand years to behold the fruit of his rebellion. It will be a very painful experience for him when he will have no prey again to taunt, tempt and ruin.
After the thousand years, Jesus descends new Jerusalem with the redeemed, the wicked are brought to life by Jesus to receive their reward, Satan resume his demonic work and stir the wicked to go and fight for the holy city. Then fire will come out from God and devour them( destroy them completely after they all suffer according to the harm they caused humanity, some will perish faster, Satan and his angels will suffer the most ).
It will leave neither root( Satan ) nor branches( sinners ) they will all die everlasting death after they turn into ashes. “Malachi 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”
God will then wipe their ashes and make a new earth. Eden restored, universe eternally secured from sin(Nahum 1:9)!!! “Nahum 1:9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.”
Only everlasting peace, holiness and happiness in the new earth. strive to be there!
At the coming of Christ the wicked are blotted from the face of the whole earth—consumed with the spirit of His mouth and destroyed by the brightness of His glory. Christ takes His people to the City of God, and the earth is emptied of its inhabitants.“Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.” “The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.” “Because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned.” Isaiah 24:1, 3, 5, 6. The Great Controversy 657.1
The whole earth appears like a desolate wilderness. The ruins of cities and villages destroyed by the earthquake, uprooted trees, ragged rocks thrown out by the sea or torn out of the earth itself, are scattered over its surface, while vast caverns mark the spot where the mountains have been rent from their foundations. GC 657.2
Now the event takes place foreshadowed in the last solemn service of the Day of Atonement.When the ministration in the holy of holies had been completed, and the sins of Israel had been removed from the sanctuary by virtue of the blood of the sin offering, then the scapegoat was presented alive before the Lord; and in the presence of the congregation the high priest confessed over him “all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat.” Leviticus 16:21. In like manner, when the work of atonement in the heavenly sanctuary has been completed, then in the presence of God and heavenly angels and the hosts of the redeemed the sins of God’s people will be placed upon Satan; he will be declared guilty of all the evil which he has caused them to commit. And as the scapegoat was sent away into a land not inhabited, so Satan will be banished to the desolate earth, an uninhabited and dreary wilderness. GC 658.1
The revelator foretells the banishment of Satan and the condition of chaos and desolation to which the earth is to be reduced, and he declares that this condition will exist for a thousand years. After presenting the scenes of the Lord’s second coming and the destruction of the wicked, the prophecy continues: “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.”Revelation 20:1-3. GC 658.2
That the expression “bottomless pit” represents the earth in a state of confusion and darkness is evident from other scriptures. Concerning the condition of the earth “in the beginning,” the Bible record says that it “was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” [The Hebrew word here translated “deep” is rendered in the Septuagint (Greek) translation of the Hebrew Old Testament by the same word rendered “bottomless pit” In Revelation 20:1-3.] Genesis 1:2. Prophecy teaches that it will be brought back, partially at least, to this condition. Looking forward to the great day of God, the prophet Jeremiah declares: “I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down.” Jeremiah 4:23-26. GC 658.3
Here is to be the home of Satan with his evil angels for a thousand years. Limited to the earth, he will not have access to other worlds to tempt and annoy those who have never fallen. It is in this sense that he is bound: there are none remaining, upon whom he can exercise his power.He is wholly cut off from the work of deception and ruin which for so many centuries has been his sole delight. GC 659.1
The prophet Isaiah, looking forward to the time of Satan’s overthrow, exclaims: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!… Thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: … I will be like the Most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; that made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” Isaiah 14:12-17. GC 659.2
For six thousand years, Satan’s work of rebellion has “made the earth to tremble.” He had “made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof.” And he “opened not the house of his prisoners.” For six thousand years his prison house has received God’s people, and he would have held them captive forever; but Christ had broken his bonds and set the prisoners free. GC 659.3
Even the wicked are now placed beyond the power of Satan, and alone with his evil angels he remains to realize the effect of the curse which sin has brought. “The kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, everyone in his own house [the grave]. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch…. Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people.”Isaiah 14:18-20. GC 660.1
For a thousand years, Satan will wander to and fro in the desolate earth to behold the results of his rebellion against the law of God. During this time his sufferings are intense. Since his fall his life of unceasing activity has banished reflection; but he is now deprived of his power and left to contemplate the part which he has acted since first he rebelled against the government of heaven, and to look forward with trembling and terror to the dreadful future when he must suffer for all the evil that he has done and be punished for the sins that he has caused to be committed. GC 660.2
To God’s people the captivity of Satan will bring gladness and rejoicing. Says the prophet: “It shall come to pass in the day that Jehovah shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy trouble, and from the hard service wherein thou wast made to serve, that thou shalt take up this parable against the king of Babylon [here representing Satan], and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! … Jehovah hath broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers; that smote the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, that ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that none restrained.” Verses 3-6, R.V. GC 660.3
“Daniel 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”
“Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
“Revelation 19:1 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: 19:2 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. 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
19:4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. 19:6 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.”
“Revelation 15:2 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. 15:3 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. 15:4 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.”
“Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
“Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
