Timing of End Time Events

As we get closer and closer to the revealing of the Lord’s final events, let us look at the above map and the events therein.

We as Seventh-day Adventists are well familiar with the 1844 date. This began our Lord’s coming to the heavenly Sanctuary to begin the judgment for the dead. All those who professed their belief in God began to be reviewed by the Judge. We are fast closing in on Christ’s last review of the dead.

Then there is a transfer of judgement–the dead to the living! As shown in our profile this is when the four winds are let loose, Ezekiel 9 church judgment commences and the 144,000 are united and sealed.

The Elijah message describes in detail this transfer of events–

“…since the distinctive truth of the Investigative Judgment in heaven is the Seventh-day Adventist doctrinal magnifying glass, let us use it on the subject of the separation.

That part of the Investigative Judgment of the living, by which is determined who are to have their sins blotted out and, as a result, be given eternal life, is paralleled on earth by the work of the angel with the “writer’s inkhorn,” who is charged to “mark” (seal) everyone who sighs and cries for all the abominations in Judah and Israel-the church.

And the work of the five others who follow on to slay all who have not the “mark” (seal), is paralleled in heaven by the blotting out of the sinners’ names from the Book of Life. (See Ezekiel 9 Testimonies to Ministers, p. 445; Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211).

Thus we see that this dual prophetic work of separating the names of the sinners from the names of the righteous in the sanctuary, and separating the sinners from the righteous in the church, is the same as the work decreed in the parables: separating the tares from the wheat (Matt. 13:30); the bad fish from the good (Matt. 13:48); those who have not the wedding garment from those who have it (Matt. 22:1-13), those who have not improved their talents from those who have (Matt. 25:20-30).

As all these equivalent separations take place during the Investigative Judgment, before the wedding, the coronation, the reception of the kingdom (Dan. 7:9, 10, 13, 14), it is evident that the harvest and the Judgment are counterparts and that they take place before probation closes—when the Lord suddenly comes to His temple to “purify the sons of Levi.” Mal. 3:1-3.

And as the Judgment of the dead is followed by the Judgment of the living, so the Judgment of the church is followed by the Judgment of the world. And “if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (1 Pet. 4:17)—when the Great Judge sits upon the throne of His glory, when all the nations gather before Him, when as a shepherd He divides His sheep (Matt. 25:31-46).”

As we have posted many times before, the doubters of which are legion, in our SDA church, do not teach or discuss this very important transfer of Judgment. They are stuck on the judgment of the dead and do not generally have a clue about the judgment for the living. But Spirit of Prophecy shows a real “game changer” in the following Inspired reference.

“The sealing of the servants of God is the same that was shown Ezekiel in vision. John also had been a witness of this most startling revelation.” (TM, p.445)

Here we see that the 144,000 sealings are one and the same as Ezekiel 9. This being so we can then know that the 144,000 are sealed prior to the Sunday law. Here are two most important references that supports this timeline.

In Rev. 7 we find our evidence as to when the sealings/Ezek. 9 are done. It is before the winds are let loose. So what does the winds of Rev.7 represent?

The time is coming when we cannot sell at any price. The decree will soon go forth prohibiting men to buy or sell of any man save him that hath the mark of the beast. We came near having this realized in California a short time since; but this was only the threatening of the blowing of the four winds. As yet they are held by the four angels. We are not just ready. There is a work yet to be done, and then the angels will be bidden to let go, that the four winds may blow upon the earth. That will be a decisive time for God’s children, a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. Now is our opportunity to work.”

So the winds represent the Sunday law.Hence the sealing/Ezek. 9 take place before the Sunday law. The next reference backs this up as well.

“Just before we entered it (time of trouble) we all received the seal of the living God. Then I saw the 4 angels lease to hold the 4 winds.” (7 BC, p.968)

Although Ellen White was speaking in the terms of “we”, which would appear to say she was one of them, we know as Bible students that she was foreseeing into the future. Much like a reporter living vicariously through their report. We know as present truth believers that our beloved prophetess is sleeping peacefully in the grave but will soon join the servants of God in the final work upon the world.

“Your work, my work, will not cease with this life. For a little while we may rest in the grave, but, when the call comes, we shall, in the kingdom of God, take up our work once more.” (Testimonies, vol. 7, p.17)

Let us now look at the middle of the chart, the most intense part. Once the “great and dreadful day of the Lord” commences, we see many simultaneous events occur.This is the time of gigantic unparalleled happenings worldwide. Words really fail to speak of these colliding of events. The world will be completely changed.

And these all happen rapidly. “The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones.” (Testimonies, vol. 9, p.11)

The Loud Cry, the false Satanic kingdom, the Lord’s Israel kingdom, the miracles, the gathering of the great multitude, the Sunday law, all this and more happens within a few short years!

The world will have witnessed the dreadful end of probation for the SDA church. Amazingly, because of this, there will be two dividing camps in the world. Those that believe the testimony of the 144,000 as God true servants and those who are skeptical and allow themselves to be fooled by Satan’s counter plan.

Let us remember that as they say “hindsight is 20/20” and applies to those who do not know the future, but the Davidians SDA will be proven correct concerning end time events and as such, with the spreading of the prophetic events, videos, blogs, reports, all made prior to the events, this will solidify many truth seekers as to who is truly with God. These will be known as foresight 20/20 people. These 144,000 servants go to work bringing in the final “great multitude”(Rev. 7:9) from around the world. The Lord’s headquarters–Israel, will be the safe haven for all believers.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”(Isaiah 2:2-3)

Just as the SDA were the first to receive the final warning from a God who is exceedingly angry and fed up with sin, due to the continual abominations through out His church, so too will the world be warned by the 144,000 and should they reject the warning, the final wrath of God is poured out by the 7 last plagues.

So we see that God’s servants have warned two groups, the SDA and the world. Two fateful eternal decisions are made–Eternity or non-existence.

The plagues come upon all those who have rejected Christ, through the message of His servants, and then that glorious “second coming” appears to all the faithful –praise the Lord!

As the chart shows, there will be 1000 years in the heavenly kingdom, at which time the saints will have the privilege of reviewing God’s righteous judgments passed upon all  whomever they will review. The end of this time will be the Lord’s kingdom descending down upon a people who are the raised wicked who were given 100 short years to witness the futility of a world without God.

This short 100 years is briefly mentioned in Isaiah–

“There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.” (Isaiah 65:20)

The short 100 years is generally not well know among us, and we hope to have a post on it soon. The understanding of this originally came from the Spirit of Prophecy.

In closing,  when we carefully study the Bible, Spirit of Prophecy and the Elijah message, we see that the shown chart outline is truly the timing of end time events. Let us determine to be part of this glorious end time world. Yes there will be a two-fold division, but those who make preparations now, and keep their garments clean and walk daily in His Commandments and sigh and cry for all the abominations that are done in their life and in the church–will witness it all!
