“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

The Seven Trumpets and The Investigative Judgment

I apologize for not many blog posts of late.
I’ve been working on a book of the seals, trumpets, and the investigative judgment. I’m editing it (once again) for the umpteenth time, and hope to be finished before Christmas. I wanted Teach Services, Inc. to publish it, but their cost was prohibitive. I don’t blame them. The book is over 300 pages with charts and graphs. But, I’ve decided to let them print it without their wonderful editing and marketing, for a price tag that is more within my budget. I mourn over the lesser product, but its all I can do at the present. My plan is to save up enough to pay for the approximate $13,000 for the better product.
Being that I’m opting for the lesser product, I also will not have the marketing to Adventist Book Centers. I deeply regret that, but it will have to wait for the future. I can approach the ABC managers myself, but I’m not a salesman and they haven’t established a relationship with me. How well do I edit my own writing? How doctrinally correct is my book? These and many other questions would not even be asked of the Teach Services representative. But, me? They don’t know me from Adam. I will send a copy of the book to them, but if its like resumes, they may not have the time to look at it among other books being sent to them. Unless the Lord providentially drives them to. And He can!
I looked on the internet at other interpretations of the trumpets, and so far, none of them seem to allow scripture to interpret itself in order to understand the trumpets. And they didn’t have the Advent movement’s understanding of the great controversy. In my case, because I was somewhat grounded in Ellen White, I naturally interpreted the seals in light of the great controversy between Christ and Satan. I also was familiar with the apostatizing of the Protestant denominations by their rejection of William Miller and the Sabbath/Spirit of Prophecy. I see that most of Revelation deals with the issues of the Advent movement and also Satan’s strong delusion against it. Spiritual Formation is also part of the delusion.
With that background, the Lord showed me in the first four trumpets the falling away of the denominations into spiritualism. Simultaneously, the Sabbath conferences gave birth to the Advent movement. In the middle of the Sabbath conferences, the fifth trumpet began in 1849 and the next 150 years would be a race to the finish between the forces of Satan and the mark of the Beast, and the forces of Christ and the seal of God. Bringing in other scriptures and its uses of symbolisms the trumpets seem very clear to me. I’ve seen how the 3rd angel’s message is composed of the symbols of the fifth and sixth trumpets, which have been the trumpets that apply to the period of the Advent movement. This puts our day in the sixth trumpet. I see how 9/11 is all part of the final scattering of God’s people in the little time of trouble, and their needed preparation for the Latter Rain.
I want to at least give you an overview of the book. Its brief, but maybe one day the book will come out and you may be interested in it.
Revelation chapter 4 through 11 form the core storyline of the book of Revelation. The chapters that follow chapter 11 are brought in to expand and to add more details. The seals and trumpets are not optional to understand Revelation, they form the vital center of the last book of the Bible.
Chapter 1 Revelation chapter 4
The throne of God before sin began. The praises to God concern creation only, and no mention is made of a Redeemer.
Chapter 2: Revelation chapter 5
Sudden change in the atmosphere of heaven. It’s the same picture of the throne of God, except God has a book sealed up so tightly that only the crucifixion of Christ could open it. This book is the great controversy, the accusations against God and the issues over God’s Law.
Chapter 3: Revelation chapter 6
The Lamb takes the seals off of the book, one at a time. Before the 7th seal is removed we see a scene of Christ second coming. This was not the actual return of Christ—it was the global Advent movement of the 1830’s and early 40’s. But, the people were not ready for His coming. Before He can return, His people must be sealed. This is the necessary preparation for the day of His visitation of judgments.
Chapter 4: Revelation chapter 7
This chapter introduces the sealing. That is such a major issue that it puts the sealed book pageant on pause to explain who gets the seal, where it resides in us, and this chapter gives the first picture of how the great controversy ends.
Chapter 5: Revelation chapter 8
After the chapter 7 intermission, we need to come back to where we were. So, the 7th seal is removed. The sanctuary scene that follows is connected with the 7th seal. Since the 6th seal ended and the seal of God is shown ascending from the east in 1844, then, chapter 8 picks up after the foretaste of all the happy celebration throughout eternity. Silence divides the chapter 7 intermission from the sanctuary scene; it separates the previous rejoicing at the end of the controversy from the solemn events to follow in order to set up a new mindset in the reader. It is a reminder that our celebration is promised, but not yet ours to have. We are the church militant that must first endure the rigors of the trumpet dangers yet to come.
The Angel High Priest is in the Holy Place, ready to enter the Most Holy. But, first He casts His censer to the earth and the 1st trumpet blows. We can say that the 1st trumpet is connected with the previous sanctuary scene because the contents of the censer and His blood are what fall from the sky onto the earth in the 1st trumpet. The contents damage 1/3 of the trees and all the fields of grain. This signified God’s overthrow of the denominations and the worst of the Protestants, which rejected the plain truth of the blessed hope of Jesus’ return. The Bible often compares people to trees and grain.
The 2nd trumpet blew and Mt. Sinai is quenched showing the churches’ abrogating the Law of God. Now most of the Protestants had no protection from Satan’s spells.
So, the 3rd trumpet blew and Satan is seen poisoning their hearts and minds, their whole way of viewing this world and the providences of God. Faith, true, genuine faith is gone from every American who joined the new lawless Protestantism. Now that God is fictionalized by their rejection of His Law, this world is all that most of them can live for.
The 4th trumpet blew and the Sunday churches went totally dark spiritually. The Bible is no longer understood and its central importance is lost. Now that Protestant America has lost its only resource for a spiritual compass in God’s word, an angel flies alarming the world of the three woes that come with the next three trumpets.
Chapter 6: Revelation chapter 9
The 5th trumpet blew. God looses Satan to ransack Protestantism and bring it and the world it that has blessed into subjection to the powers of hell. Everyone not being sealed is tormented with the same vexation of spirit that Solomon and King Saul experienced when they apostatized from the Lord. Moses forewarned of this for the whole nation in his curses of Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28, 29. Specifically, Deuteronomy 29:18-22 speaks to this 5th trumpet, as does Revelation 14:9-11. In fact, the 3rd angel’s message is all about the 5th and 6th trumpet plagues—the torment and desolation of soul that comes from not getting to know Jesus and not taking God seriously, preparing for His judgment and final return.
The ancient false religion that caused such havoc to Israel was Baal worship. But, Baal worship was simply one face of thousands of false religions around the world, all spawned from Babylon. It is a religion that dares to approach God with our own contrived repentance and holiness. The modern counterpart of this is Spiritual Formation. In Spiritual Formation the reproofs of the Law, which bring us to need a Savior from sin, are set aside. Before Christ can be a Savior, He must be a Prince who wields His glittering sword. God will have it no other way. But, Satan, stepping in between God and His people, offers a more comfortable redemption, without the messy humbling which God requires. By peace and flattery he has destroyed many from the days of Cain, and now he is doing the same in the Advent movement. We are repeating the history of Israel at Baal-peor, and many Adventists are falling for it, including many of our leaders. This is the message of the 3rd angel and it speaks of the 5th and 6th trumpet plagues.
The language of the 3rd angel’s message comes from the 5th and 6th trumpets—another reason to believe that the trumpets happen during the heaven-ordained Advent movement and investigative judgment that precedes the antitypical Day of atonement.
It only makes sense that all the trumpets should blow during the Advent movement, since the typical feast of trumpets was connected with the cleansing of the earthly sanctuary. There is a time period with the 5th trumpet—5 prophetic months, 150 years. I realize Ellen White made it seem to say that there would be no more time prophecies after 1844. I believe she only communicated what Jesus wanted her to give us at the time. If we had known we would be here for 150 years we would have apostatized into pagan celebration a long time ago.
One thing is very clear, Revelation 9:4 (the 5thtrumpet) and 7:3 (1844) are unarguably speaking of the same thing—the seal of God in the forehead. So, my conclusion is that Sr. White wrote volumes on every other subject, while she wrote almost nothing about the trumpets, because Jesus gave her no light on the trumpets. The time must wait until the prophecy was over before its meaning would come to light. That time has arrived. I believe that the 5th trumpet began as we were hammering out our fundamental beliefs in the Sabbath conferences. In 1849, the California gold rush altered the face of Protestant Americans. In 1999, 150 years later, another gold rush occurred—the stock market gold rush of the late 90’s. These two dates are the bookends for the 5th trumpet.
In between those years technology exponentially developed and drew the world-loving Protestant multitudes away from God and His Law. They were tormented like Jesus was on the cross because His Father had left Him. During those 5 prophetic months, the Spirit of God had been leaving Protestant America and Satan had been moving in to fill the void. Temptations have ruined Protestant Americans from what the original Reformers gave us largely through the human agencies of Rome and her Jesuit masters of deception. They are the locusts of the 5th trumpet. Satan, propelling them across the land, is the black smoke.
The 6th trumpet blew. Now that Americans have departed from God and lived on His promised land of refuge without a single thought of Him, He allows for their complete possession by the god they love so much. As the 10 tribes of Israel lived for Baal for 200 years until the Lord vomited them out of His land, so is He doing to Protestantism today. Soon, and very soon, Protestantism’s old enemy of the Dark Ages will have conquered this nation by filling the leading offices of their CIA, FBI, NSA, FDA, FEMA, AMA, Jesuit controlled media, Federal Reserve banking system, and three branches of the U.S. Government. I won’t be surprised if the Protest is ended by united, official declaration and documentation, and the union of church and state happens at Protestantism’s 500 anniversary—2017.
In the 6th trumpet, the locusts can do what they were forbidden to do during the 5th trumpet, that is, “kill” the soul. All of their torment until 1999 came from the work of separating the people from the one true God of their Reformation fathers. Now that they are fully separated, they commit the unpardonable sin and become a persecuting nation. This explains the unjust destruction of Muslims based on the phony premise that they caused the black flag operation of 9/11. Specially placed and protected individuals within American government agencies, and under the purview of Rome choreographed 9/11. (Dan. 8:12).
9/11 has set the stage for the coming tribulation of all nations. We are in the very end of time. God has just about finished His scattering of the power of the holy people (Dan. 12:7).
When the 7th trumpet will blow, the 3rd woe will mean total world domination by Satan and his filling every heart with his mean anger. Then, the few who took God and His Law and His redemption seriously will stand out from the demon-controlled crowds. Everyone who played off the Spirit of Prophecy as unneeded during the 5th and 6th trumpets God will require it of them in the 7th trumpet.
Chapter 7: Revelation chapter 10
This chapter begins to show glory at the end of the long distressing tunnel. It opens during the desolations of the 6th trumpet. Christ is seen clothed with a cloud of incense and glory. The little sealed book which He took from His Father in Revelation chapter 5 is now opened after the trumpets have done their work of scattering the power of His Protestant people (which includes the SDAs). Christ roars like a lion because His forbearing work as lamb is over and its time to judge the world and end the controversy. With infinite thunder, God agrees with His Son.
So, He swears by His Father that the delay of the 6th seal is completed—the sealing is almost finished—and He can finally come in power and glory. But, first He will give humanity one last opportunity to be saved, as He gave the antediluvian world. He commands John to eat the book of the great controversy and to “prophesy again.” But, if we use scripture to interpret scripture, then this is not speaking of the Millerite Great Disappointment of 1844; it is speaking of an event within this final chapter of the seal/trumpet chronology.
When do we see any prophesying taking place since Revelation chapter 4? We don’t see any up to Revelation chapter 10. But, we do see it in the next chapter, almost immediately following the command in chapter 10 to prophesy again. We see it in Revelation chapter 11.
Chapter 8: Revelation chapter 11
This chapter ends the seal/trumpet story that is the core of Revelation. The chapter introduces its intent to judge the church by John being given a measuring rod. The church is found guilty of apostasy, except for a very small remnant that defends the truth “in the days of their prophecy” (Rev. 11:6)—the apostles, the church in the wilderness, and the Reformation. The fire of truth shoots out of the mouths of God’s champions and devours the enemies of His gospel. This campaign against Satan continues successfully until 1849 when the hosts of darkness come out of the bottomless pit. Then, the Lord’s witnesses are warred against, are later overcome, and eventually cease their prophesying.
Satan cannot immediately kill the Advent movement, I believe while Ellen White lives. But, he first makes war (also seen in Rev. 12:17), then he overcomes, and finally he kills the Advent movement. We lay dead in the aisles of the church for a period of time that figuratively expresses judgment on God’s people (Luke 4:25;Jas. 5:17). Then, when God has accomplished our total humbling and all of our self-sufficiency is gone, then He resurrects His two witnesses, (a leaner Advent movement) receives the Latter Rain, and the earth is reaped. This ends the 2nd woe, and the 7th trumpet blows. Total chaos rules the world and the last we see is an empty Most Holy Place in heaven because Christ has left there to come and get His people. The mystery of God’s character of love and fairness, as written in the little book, is finished. His judgment is finished, and He is exonerated in His character perfectly reflected in His children.
This ends the core of Revelation. I hope it wasn’t too hard to follow. The rest of the book of Revelation expands upon the main storyline of chapters 4 through 11.
I’ve heard much about chiasms. That subject all began with the book of Revelation. I’ve looked at charts that show the chiasms of Revelation, and it all seems good. I have yet to analyze the way they stand up next to my view of Revelation. But, as I began with in this blog post, I see Revelation 4 to the end of the book simply as basically two halves of one book. First, we have the 8 chapter core that give a bird’s eye view of the book, such as my overview does for my book. Then, the next 11 chapters give detail that are brought in at the correct places of the core storyline.
This method of writing a book seems very simple and wise. Chiasms are a little to complicated for me. But, a simple storyline is what I can handle. Even children can understand the core storyline. Of course, the symbology is a deeper subject, and that gives the Bible a challenge for adults. But, I’m thankful that Revelation is much more understandable than most people think because of the way it was laid out by the Spirit of God.
I hope you can read the book when it comes out. It needs to get out soon.
