Holding the Four Winds of the Earth

144,000 chart

In Revelation 7:1 we read, “After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or any tree.”

What does these winds represent? Trouble BIG trouble! Once these winds are let loose–whoa! We cannot imagine the trouble that is coming to this earth. We think Katrina, ISIS, Haiti’s earthquake was/is  bad? As the ol song and saying goes–“You ain’t see nothing yet”.

We are at the cusp of great trouble, a time when God will be the only out for the people.No more will we be able to abuse God’s long-suffering patience. The Word will go out to release the winds.

As we posted in one of our prior reports, the Lord always specifically warns His people when He is about to do something solemn. SOP describes–

“God does not send judgments upon His people without first warning them to repent. He uses every means to bring them back to obedience and does not visit their iniquity with judgments until He has given them ample opportunity to repent.” (Testimonies, vol. 4, p.179).

Do we think God is still in the warning business? Of course He is, He is the same today as He was yesterday (Mal.3:6). This being true, we who are keeping our eyes open know that the Lord is just about finished with His fourth and last Blood Moon. They have appeared in the heavens three consecutive times within the last several months, all falling on historical holy Biblical days. The fourth one appears on Sept. 28. When we understand that one Blood moon is uncommon, to have FOUR all back to back to back to back, falling exactly in Biblical holy days, well as we said before –this is God speaking to us the SDA church.

As we have shown in other reports, we the SDA church are— “the Israel of today” (Testimonies, vol. 9, p.164). So we must be aware that these Blood moons are for us, the Israel of today. He is warning us that our time is very short. He stands ready to make a move. 

blood moons

“The LORD said to Moses, “How long will this people spurn Me? And how long will they not believe in Me, despite all the signs which I have performed in their midst?” Numbers 14:11)

The move can only be a great and troublesome time upon the earth, a time that Daniel the prophet spoke of. The winds begin to blow.

“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.”(Dan.12:1)

We as SDA firmly know that in 1844 Jesus entered the most holy place to begin the judgment for the dead. Those we professed God throughout the prior ages. But He is soon to finish with the dead. Very shortly He shall “stand up” from that work and purification takes place in our ranks.

“While the investigative judgment is going forward in heaven, while the sins of penitent believers are being removed from the sanctuary, there is to be a special work of purification, of putting away of sin, among God’s people upon earth. This work is more clearly presented in the messages of Revelation 14.”(Great Controversy, p.425)

In Rev. 14 we read of two harvests “reapings” and the first one is from the “Son of man”(Ezekiel 9). This is the Lord coming to the church for the first stroke of the wrath of God . The Testimonies confirm this.

“Here we see that the church–the Lord’s sanctuary–was the first to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, had betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God’s power as in former days. Times have changed.

These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. Thus “Peace and safety” is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God’s people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together.” (Testimonies, vol. 5, p.211)

But this is the beginning of His people being “delivered”. Sadly He has to “take the reins into His own hands” (TM, p.300) with a  most solemn judgment in His house. He patience is over, His prophetic word which He uttered from times past must come to pass.

“As a flaming torch in the blackness of night, stands forth the truth that the time of trouble such as never was, finds the church free from the flood of tares, free from the “bad fish,” and consequently able not only to withstand the Devil but also to go forth conquering and to conquer in the mighty power of Michael, Whose standing up delivers “every one that shall be found written in the book.” Dan. 12:1.(Answerer, vol. 2, p.20)

But let us look at these “winds” more closely, specifically what could be some direct upcoming troublesome acts that happen to the world when they are let loose.

Today we are witnessing a major behind the scenes financial time bomb brewing. China just devalued their currency and they, along with Russia, have been snatching up any and all Gold for the last several years. These two power houses know that the US dollar has no real backing as without Gold reserves to back them up, they are just paper promises saying “I owe you”. For some good reports, google “Russia buying up gold”(also China).

So what does all this foretell? It shows that as soon as the gigantic war over Israel begins and then once it settles, the financial markets will be ready for a new currency that eliminates the dollar and replaces it with some type of electronic units that can be controlled by the higher-ups. This must happen because of God’s word in Rev. 13–

“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.” (Rev. 13:16-17)

Right now the dollar is easy to hide from the authorities. Many through out our nation just live on cash without paying taxes, using credit cards, buying only with cash. Their home is their bank where they stash the cash. But once the dollar is replaced then the governments can control the people via their finances. And then the prophesied decree can be set up to accomplish its goal–“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.”

The stock market is another inflated balloon. Soon the big crash will come and many will be financially wiped out. So these financial time bombs are just some of the results of God ordering the release of the four winds. Satan will have more free rein to accomplish his evil desires to capture as many as is not calling upon the true Lord at that time.

Awhile back I was listening to a Christian call in radio show and a man called in saying he was a professional truck driver (somewhere back east). He was speaking as one who was nearly out of breath and scared. The host asked him what was going on. He replied that he was curious what he was asked to haul so he pulled over and had just opened his truck trailer and found hundreds of large boxes of guillotines. He said this truck’s load transfer seemed strange and now he knew why.

This call goes along with the many online reports of the government purchasing thousands of guillotines. In addition there are long time reports of secret Fema camps all over the US. Something is being planned and it appears that some time soon, Martial Law will be put in place. This all fits as we know Revelation again warns us of the following–

 “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.” (Rev. 20:4)

SOP gives us the most pin point explanation of these fours winds.

“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.” (Testimonies, vol. 5, p.152)

You see my brethren, the sole reason that the four winds are not yet loose is because God must seal His 144,000. They must be sealed first in order for them to be ready to advance the Loud Cry to all the world. Once the sealing is completed THEN we shall see all sorts of trouble break loose. God’s mercy on His elect is what is giving us our general peace right now.

The message tells us more enlightening facts–

“It being a foregone conclusion that Satan is against the saints, and that the Lord is against the truth-hating and evil-doing multitude, the  subject becomes crystal clear: When let loose, the winds are to strike against the faithful “remnant,” against those who are left after the earth has opened her mouth and swallowed up “the flood,” the “tares” (Rev. 12:16, 17); but the angels who are stationed to hurt, are  to smite those who make war against the remnant. 

Those whose names are found in the book, are “delivered.” Dan. 12:1.  Seeing that the 144,000, the servants of God, are not as yet sealed (not yet enclosed, protected, guarded, and ready to take their stand with the Lamb on Mt. Sion, but rather are still commingled with the tares) the angels are commanded to forestall the clash.

   Consequently, when this sealing work is completed, then the angels who hold the winds, will let the winds blow, and the angels who are to hurt the earth, sea, and trees, will then commence their given work. 

Otherwise stated, to let the winds blow, is to permit the two-horn beast to decree “that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Rev. 13:15); and to let the angels hurt, is to allow the Lord’s decree to take its course: “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.” Rev. 14:9, 10.  This warning is followed by the forecast:

 

   “The four angels were loosed, which were prepared  for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” Rev. 9:15.

   Both decrees will be in force after the 144,000 are sealed.

   Here is seen that from among the first fruits of the harvest, come the 144,000, the servants of God for the closing work of the great harvest.  These are the first saints ever to have been relieved of the “tares” among them.  Get ready, Brother, Sister, for the time is at hand.”(Tract 15, p.61-62)

If you are not an SDA, the dire events coming will be your world. The surviving SDA members from the Lord’s church purification will sound a “Loud Cry” message from the Lord, and you will have a decision to make– Accept the Lord and His Commandments (obey the true Sabbath-7th day) or accept the world’s false sabbath–Sunday and agree to accept the “mark of the beast” so that you can buy and sell and survive in the new world order.

If we are a Seventh-day Adventist we are faced with a difficult decision. Do we accept His last pleading message, or do we ignore it, clinging to the very charge our Lord makes against us–“Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’--and do  not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind , and naked.” Rev. 3:17)

So the eternal question to us as SDA is– Are we accepting or rejecting His last message to us? The message of His Elijah prophet? This will be the deciding factor. There is a reason the message is called by Inspiration, the “sealing message”, it’s because it seals us in our foreheads.

We as SDA really need to know just how precious our right decision is. We can become one of His elect, one of His “army” members declaring His word with ALL authority!

“Clad in the armor of Christ’s righteousness, the church is to enter upon her final conflict. “Fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners” (Song of Solomon 6:10), she is to go forth into all the world, conquering and to conquer (Prophets and Kings, p.725).

“The servants of God” shall certainly gather all their brethren out of all nations (Isa. 66:20).  Indeed so, for the legs of the Gospel are the legs of the people who proclaim it.  Of course, only with perfect co-ordination and a bullet-proof army can the gospel work be finished when the two-horned beast declares “that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Rev. 13:15. (Timely Greetings, vol. 2, no.8, p.20)

Are we watching TV often, or at a show, or doing some pleasurable worldly activity often, while the Bible is left on the shelf collecting dust?  The four winds are very soon to break loose, and the Scriptures say that we as SDA, the general masses in our church, will reject His final message and doom our fate. But there is still time to get into the proverbial Ark. The winds are still held back, thank the Lord.
