“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

Living in the 6th trumpet

Christ gave to His disciples truths whose breadth and depth and value they little appreciated, or even comprehended, and the same condition exists among the people of God today. We too have failed to take in the greatness, to perceive the beauty of the truth which God has entrusted to us today. Should we advance in spiritual knowledge, we would see the truth developing and expanding in lines of which we have little dreamed, but it will never develop in any line that will lead us to imagine that we may know the times and the seasons which the Father hath put in His own power. Again and again have I been warned in regard to time setting. There will never again be a message for the people of God that will be based on time. We are not to know the definite time either for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit or for the coming of Christ.

I was searching through my writings, before coming to this meeting, to see what I should take with me to Australia, and I found an envelope on which was written, “Testimony given in regard to time setting, June 21, 1851. Preserve carefully.” I opened it, and this is what I found. It reads:

“A copy of a vision the Lord gave Sister White, June 21, 1851, at Camden, N.Y. The Lord showed me that the message must go, and that it must not be hung on time; for time will never be a test again. I saw that some were getting a false excitement, arising from preaching time, that the third angel’s message can stand on its own foundation, and that it needs not time to strengthen it, and that it will go with mighty power, and do its work, and will be cut short in righteousness.
—Selected Messages, Vol. 1, p. 188.

Solemn events before us are yet to transpire. Trumpet after trumpet is to be sounded; vial after vial poured out one after another upon the inhabitants of the earth.—Selected Messages, Vol. 3, p. 426

The world is soon to be left by the angel of mercy and the seven last plagues are to be poured out. . . . The bolts of God’s wrath are soon to fall, and when He shall begin to punish the transgressors there will be no period of respite until the end .—Testimonies to Ministers, p. 182

The Nations in Conflict

Four mighty angels hold back the powers of this earth till the servants of God are sealed in their foreheads. The nations of the world are eager for conflict, but they are held in check by the angels. When this restraining power is removed there will come a time of trouble and anguish. Deadly instruments of warfare will be invented. Vessels with their living cargo will be entombed in the great deep. All who have not the spirit of truth will unite under the leadership of satanic agencies, but they are to be kept under control till the time shall come for the great battle of Armageddon.
—SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 7, p. 967.

The Whole World Will Be Involved in Ruin

Angels are now restraining the winds of strife that they may not blow until the world shall be warned of its coming doom, but a storm is gathering, ready to burst upon the earth, and when God shall bid His angels loose the winds there will be such a scene of strife as no pen can picture
.—Education, p. 179, 180.

The Saviour’s prophecy concerning the visitation of judgments upon Jerusalem is to have another fulfillment, of which that terrible desolation was but a faint shadow. In the fate of the chosen city we may behold the doom of a world that has rejected God’s mercy and trampled upon His law.—Great Controversy, p. 36.

Satan will then plunge the inhabitants of the earth into one great, final trouble. As the angels of God cease to hold in check the fierce winds of human passion, all the elements of strife will be let loose. The whole world will be involved in ruin more terrible than that which came upon Jerusalem of old.—Great Controversy, p. 614.

The Lord’s servant placed Revelation’s seven trumpets in her future. “Trumpet after trumpet” “are yet to transpire.” She made no other reference to the seven trumpets. Was she being general or generic in her use of them? If that is so, then she wrote nothing to explain the seven trumpets in their entirety with any historical context in which the church could know where the Advent band was in the time continuum that traveled to the heavenly Jerusalem.

Or did the Lord not reveal any light to her concerning the seven trumpets? This appears probable and hence Ellen White’s principle that silence is eloquent. When she wrote on the subject of eloquent silence the subject of the seven trumpets was not within the matter of that writing. Should it have been? I would say she did not mean to consign the seven trumpets to silent since in other places she wrote,

Let no one come to the conclusion that there is no more truth to be revealed. The diligent, prayerful seeker for truth will find precious rays of light yet to shine forth from the word of God. Many gems are yet scattered that are to be gathered together to become the property of the remnant people of God.—Counsels on Sabbath School Work, p. 34. (1892.) Counsels to Writers, p. 35.

We have doctrines that she espoused not always because Jesus “gave unto [her], to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant,” (Rev. 1:1) but, rather, as Paul wrote it, “I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.” (1Cor. 7:6). “To the rest speak I, not the Lord….” (vs. 12). “But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.” (vs. 40). Much of what Ellen White wrote concerning prophecy she wrote because our Adventist forebears had hammered them out in the 1840’s, the Lord training His remnant to be people of “the Book.” We have inherited the Bible, pure and untarnished, our only safeguard in these last, dangerously delusive days.

Those Bible-based pillars, Salvation by faith, Sola Scriptura, the Sabbath, the Second Advent, the Sanctuary, the Spirit of Prophecy, the State of the dead, etc. have stood the test of time, but the ancillary doctrines have remained secondary, awaiting more light. As the handwritten scrolls were placed around the ark, being of lesser importance than the tables of stone, so have our ancillary doctrines. Prophecy is one of our lesser doctrines. Though very important to Mrs. White, it was not to take center stage, plus as time would lapse, our interpretations would be tweaked and perfected.

Uriah Smith worked diligently on Bible prophecy but, as has always been the case with prophecy students, the full picture of prophetic interpretation did not materialize until after each prophecy was completed. Until then, for those prophecies, it was as it was for the disciples, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in His own power.” (Acts 1:7). Thus Elder Smith’s intricate interpretations of Revelation 8, 9, and Daniel 11 must await the further development of Satan’s earthly agencies.

Since 1999 we can look back on the first five trumpets and clearly see their fulfillment. Quickly did the first four trumpets describe the entrance of Satan into the Sunday denominations. The 1st trumpet shows the truth that was given to Adventism baptizing the Sunday churches with a fire that was too hot for them to survive before the Lord. Thus, the mainline Protestants failed out of the great, last pronouncements of warning and mercy for the world they professed to bless, their true disposition being spiritual pride.

The 2nd trumpet illustrates the denominations accepting the lie that the Law of God was no longer in effect, contrary to what the Reformation fathers had firmly held to. Though they were ignorantly opposed to the biblical seventh-day Sabbath and could have quickly repented to the Lord, in order to save face before their congregations, this new doctrine of abrogating the Law of God by the Protestant religious leaders was simply their effort to buttress the long held pagan tradition of Sunday sacredness passed down from their dangerous and perverse enemy, Rome. But insisting to abrogate God’s Law abrogated God’s covenant with them. Satan could enter in and control Protestantism’s people, and now there was no stopping the extinguishing of their loyalty to God and His authority over their lives.

The 3rd trumpet describes Satan’s entrance into Protestantism’s hearts and minds and doctrines. The very fabric of their thinking was was spiritually transformed by Satan, freedom from God’s authoritative voice as a narcotic poison being their new “freedom” from God’s Law. The stage was laid for spiritualism’s easy movement into Protestants’character mold and the stage was set for them to be host to the New Age and the Mark of the Beast.

The 4th trumpet relates that God could on longer share His beloved Protestant platform with His adversary, Lucifer. In rejecting the new light through the despised literal second advent movement, they could no more be His messengers of glory to the world. The inspiration of His Holy Spirit left them and the light of the Bible went out. They must now traverse the satanic last generation of the world in darkness. But like king Saul who lost God’s presence yet would not strive to regain Him; similarly have the churches stubbornly persisted in their deluded path.

Now the stage was set for the 5th trumpet during which God freed Satan in response to the choice of a sin-loving heathen world and a truth-disdaining Protestant America. For 150 years, beginning in 1849, Satan has transformed the once peaceful America into a ravenous beast. The adversary has restored Protestantism’s greatest danger—Rome. She has come back to life and has infused her own life into her daughters (the denominations) and her sons (the nations’ federal, state, and local governments, especially in America). Satan’s temptations have spread all over the world through the Lord’s once beautiful and humble children of the Reformation. By 1999 the world was fully connected via the internet and satellite, through international banking and exploitive international treaties. By then, we were one world; and we began building the Bridge into the 21st Century.

The 6th trumpet blew and the joy ride on the global stock market suddenly ended with every Protestant and the middle class around the world caught in its trap. The demon-trained financial elitists siphoned the wealth of the nations into the coffers of Rome in preparation for the last great conflict. The final movement to control a global church-state has gathered mass with the USA Patriot Act, the U.S. Commissions Act, and the non-specific language of the War On Terror. A month ago, over Thanksgiving weekend, the U.S. Senate ratified broad powers already built into the USA Patriot Act, for the U.S. President and the U.S. military to confine and punish anyone the President deemed to be a terrorist. The final movement is picking up speed and momentum.

We are in the 6th trumpet described in Revelation 9 as the full fruition of satanic forces in its last drive to conquer the final remnants of Protestantism, the Constitution it birthed, and all who have come under the sanctifying influence of the power of God and the secular atheists who are indulging in the freedoms of a Protestant Constitution they ignorantly deny came from Protestantism. The acceleration of the 6th trumpet was barely noticeable at 9/11 but the mechanics of acceleration work such that the commencement is negligible and undiscernible. But, at its mid-point, movement becomes observable to the naked eye, and in its later stage on a graph it quickly vaults upward as it increases in velocity second by second. Finally nothing can stop it from going through the roof.

The Latter Rain, according to Revelation 11:11-14, happens in the last part of the 6th trumpet and then begins the time of trouble such as never was. Have we been keeping our lamps trimmed and our souls pure? This is our last opportunity to prepare for the Latter Rain.

Let us wake up and trim our lamps. “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1Pet. 1:13).
