Chapter 9.1   -   Chronology of the End

​​No denomination, church or pastor can pretend to be qualified to offer an informed opinion on Great Tribulation prophecies ("signs")

unless they can first demonstrate their doctrines harmonize with ALL SCRIPTURES teaching the context of Great Tribulation passages

are focused exclusively on the people (the "ten virgins") who "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven", as we followed

the "Anti-Christ" into a period which the Bible specifically NAMES as being the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" [Mat 25:1-13].  

Note: it is GOD (not us) that specifically NAMES four of the five "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth.  It is GOD that provides this context for us.

Mat 25:1       Then [at that time] shall the [Fourth or Great Tribulation] "Kingdom of Heaven"

                      be likened unto [look like] TEN VIRGINS [also called the ten "kings" and the ten "horns"]

                      which took their lamps [took their Gospels] and went forth [from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"

                      into the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven"] to meet the Bridegroom [to meet the Returning Lord Jesus Christ]

No denomination, church or preacher can ever be taken seriously - when they don't understand the context of the passages they are discussing,

or when they CONFLATE events occurring within the four (temporal) "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth.  So it's not reasonable to expect them

to know anything about the historical fulfillment of Great Tribulation prophecies - which were provided as "signs" for the Last Saints on earth,

so the Last Saints could understand "sealed" Biblical "mysteries" about events occurring - immediately before the Lord Returns to establish the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven" on earth.  Make no mistake... (a) the Last Saints were directed to look for specific "signs" of His imminent Return and (b) the Lord PROMISED the Last Saints "shall see all these things" (we would see fulfillment of ALL the signs) before His Return.

Mat 24:3      And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples [representing all the "wheat/sheep" within the Church Age]

                    came unto Him privately saying, Tell us [us in the "Body of Christ"], when shall these things be?

                    And what shall be THE SIGN of Thy Comingand of the end-of-the-age?

Mat 24:15   When YE [Saints living at the end] therefore SHALL SEE [shall recognize the fulfillment of] the Abomination of Desolation

                    spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand [rule] in the Holy Place, [within the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven"] 

                    (whosoever readeth, let him understand) [all the Last Saints SHALL SEE and understand these "sealed" prophecies]

 

 

In Matthew chapters 24 and 25, the Lord provided DOZENS of very specific "signs" that would occur before His Return and He PROMISED

that (all of) the Last Saints "shall see" the historical fulfillment of these events before His Return.  It should be noted (a) Jesus never promised

that any of the unsaved "tares/goats" in the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" would "see" (recognize) the fulfillment of these prophetic "signs"...

or that anyone OUTSIDE of the Kingdom (Jews, Moslems, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Humanists, Pagans, etc.) would ever "see" anything,

and (b) the Lord promised the Last Saints "SHALL SEE ALL THESE THINGS" (all these "signs") fulfilled in history - before His Return.

Mat 24:33   So likewise YE, [in the "Body of Christ"] when ye [Last Saints] SHALL SEE ALL THESE THINGS [all these "signs" foretold],

                    know that it [His Return] is near, even at the doors.  34  Verily I say unto you, This generation [generation of the Fourth Kingdom]

                    shall not pass till ALL these things [all these specific "signs"] be fulfilled [Last Saints see fulfillment of all "signs" of his Return]. 

 

This is a another example of WHY we must understand the context of a passage before we pretend to understand the meaning of the Scripture 

(see "Theology 101" in chapter 3.2... and "Theology 102" in chapter 5.3 to see how we determine the WHO and WHEN of any Bible passage).

In Matthew 24:15 and 24:33 (above) not only can we know the context of the word "YE" is directed exclusively to the "wheat/sheep" within the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".... but also that the Scriptures are talking about a very specific subset of those "wheat/sheep".

Clearly the passages are not directed to "wheat/sheep" living in 50AD or 500AD or 1000AD or 1500AD, because those Saints would have died LONG BEFORE the historical fulfillment of the prophecies would occur... so those Saints could never "see all these things" occur in history.

Likewise, any of the "wise virgins" that entered into the Fourth Kingdom - but died before the END of that Revelation Beast - would not have

been able to "see all these things" occur in history... as the Lord PROMISED would be the case for (all of) the Last Saints living on earth.

 

Clearly those prophecies were provided for the Last Saints on earth because the context is limited to the Saints living when the Lord Returns, when He is "at the door".  In fact, in Matthew 25:10 we see the context of the event is after the Final Harvest and "THE DOOR WAS SHUT".

No preacher can ever be taken seriously when their doctrine conflates (and cannot harmonize) the WHO and/or the WHEN of these passages.

For any denomination, church or preacher to ever be taken seriously they must ALSO be able to harmonize the "Season and Time"

(or the "time-of-the-end") after the destruction of the Fourth (Revelation) Beast - also shown as the period after the Second Woe

(Sixth Trumpet) is past... but before the Third Woe (Seventh Trumpet) begins. [Rev 11:14-15]  If their theology does not include

the four (temporal) "Kingdoms of Heaven", followed by a brief "Season and Time" before the establishment of the Fifth

(eternal) "Kingdom of Heaven"... then they cannot begin to harmonize their "gospel" with ALL related Scriptures. 

Read Chapter 1.3 to see the "Season and Time" (or the "time-of-the-end") harmonized with related passages.

                                                                                   |----------------------|

 

The (3rd) Christian Kingdom was DIFFERENT from the subsequent (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom - because the Revelation Beast(s)

of the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" represented the period on earth after the "Great Commission" had been finished and

after all of the lost "wheat/sheep" had been "sealed/saved".  The (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" [Mat 13], or the "Great Commission" represented the period when the "Two Witnesses" (Saints in the Christian church) "testimony" went throughout all the world [Rev 11:3-4, 7]

During this time the Christian Saints were "ruling" with Christ [Rev 20:1-6].   This "A-Millennial" understanding is the traditional doctrine

of both the Catholic and (early) Protestant churches.  And it's the only understanding that's harmonious with ALL RELATED Scriptures.

Rev 7:2-3     And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the Living God: and he cried with a loud voice 

                     to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea,

                     nor the trees, till we have SEALED the servants of our God in their foreheads [until all the Saints are saved].

In fact, [1] the Great Tribulation, or [2] Daniel's Fourth Beast, or [3] Satan's "Little Season", or [4] the two separate Revelation Beasts

or [5] the reign of the Anti-Christ (the "Little Horn" or the "False Prophet") could never begin until after all of the elect Saints

(all the "lost sheep") had been "sealed", or "saved" or "born again"... and the entire "Body of Christ" was finally complete. 

While this fact harmonizes with all related passages about the period on earth after the Great Commission, the Bible PROMISED [Dan 12:8-10] that this information would remain "closed-up" and "sealed(to all of the Saints) until it was "revealed" to the Last Saints (the "wise virgins")

living in the "Season and Time" or the "time-of-the-end" after destruction of the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven".  Therefore, these "mysteries"

were never understood until the Anti-Christ was "revealed" to the Last Saints (the "wise virgins") during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven".

2 Th 2:7-8    For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth [the Holy Spirit who now "restaineth"] will let,

                     [will restrain] until He [the Holy Spirit] be taken out of the way.  And then [after that] shall that Wicked [Anti-Christ]

                     be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His Mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His Coming.

 

 

Therefore, any serious student of Christian eschatology must (a) frame presuppositions within the context of four "Kingdoms of Heaven"

on earth before the Lord Returns to establish the Eternal "Kingdom" and (b) frame all presuppositions within the context of all of the Saints

(all the lost sheep) being saved/sealed before the Holy Spirit would be "taken out of the way" and Satan "loosened" for the Fourth Kingdom.

The Scripture is very clear the "Little Horn" or the "False Prophetof Daniel's Fourth Beast does not arise on earth until after all the Saints (actually both the "wheat and tares") of the Fourth Kingdom are complete.  This realty is an essential understanding for being able to "see"

the historical fulfillment of all the Great Tribulation prophecies ("signs")... which the Lord Jesus promised all the Last Saints "shall see".

2 Thes 2:1:  Now we beseech you brethren [fellow Saints], by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him. 

                    2  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the Day of the Lord

                    is at hand [for the end is not yet],  3  Let no man deceive you by any means for that [last] day shall not come except there come a

                    falling-away first [within the Fourth Kingdom], and the Man of Sin BE REVEALED [to the Last Saints or the "wise virgins"] 

                    the son of perdition;  4  Who opposeth [the "wheat/sheep"] and [this Anti-Christ] exalteth himself above all that is called God,

                    or that is worshipped; so that he [the Anti-Christ], as God, sitteth [rules] in the Temple of God [within the "Body of Christ",

                    which, at that point, was represented by the "wise virgins" living in the Fourth Kingdom], showing himself that he is God.

 

Dan 7:7       After this [after seeing the first three Beasts/Kingdoms on earth] I saw in the night visions, and behold a Fourth Beast

                    dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; and devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped

                    the residue [the remaining "wheat and tares"] with the feet of it: and it was diverse [different] from all the [other three] Beasts

                    that were before it; and it had ten horns [elsewhere called ten "kings" and ten "virgins"].  8  I considered the [first ten] horns,

                    and, behold, there came up among them another Little Horn, before whom there were three of the FIRST HORNS plucked up

                    by the roots: and, in this [Little Horn] were eyes like a man, and a mouth speaking great things. [the "three of the First Horns

                    represents the "wheat/sheep"... but not the "tares/goats", living during the Fourth Kingdom/Beast - or the Revelation Beast]

In order to have complete harmony of all related Scripture, in order to NOT present some partial-truth (false doctrine) on Biblical eschatology,

we must incorporate into our Gospel some "unsealed" Biblical mysteries - which are revealed by the Last Saints during the "Season and Time"

between the end of the Sixth Trumpet (end of the Second Woe) and beginning of the Seventh Trumpet (beginning of the Third Woe) [Rev 11:14].   

When we understand the harmony of Scripture for all related passages about Daniel's Fourth Kingdom/Beast, and we realize that all living

"wheat/sheep/saintsare saved before the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" can start... only then can we begin to see the harmony of

all related Scriptures representing events AFTER the end of the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven", after the "Church Age".

There are (literally) dozens of passages talking about events AFTER the end of the Great Commission - and all of them

must be harmonized before we can offer an informed opinion about the "Season and Time" or the "time-of-the-end".

Rev 7:2-3     And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the Living God: and he cried with a loud voice 

                     to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea,

                     nor the trees, till we have SEALED the servants of our God in their foreheads [until all the Saints are saved].

Rev 11:7      And when they [the Last Saints] shall have finished their testimony [and all "wheat/sheep" are sealed],

                     the Beast that ascendeth out of the Bottomless Pit shall make war against them [the Last Saints], 

                     and shall overcome them, and kill them [during the Fourth Beast or the Revelation Beast].

Luke 23:29   For, behold, the days are coming [after the (3rd) Great Commission Kingdom - during the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom]

                     in the which they [the Last Saints - the "wise virgins"] shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, 

                     and the paps which never gave suck. [because all of the elect "wheat/sheep/saints" have already been "sealed"]

Below is an overview of some DIFFERENCES between the (3rd) Christian Kingdom and (4th) Great Tribulation Beasts.

Like the (2nd) Jewish "Kingdom of Heaven", the New Testament Kingdom - or the Church Age - accomplished God's Will

and lasted exactly His appointed time... the duration of Satan being "bound" in the Pit while all the "wheat/sheep" are saved.

However, after all the Saints are "sealed", the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom (the Revelation Beasts) began as God brings

Judgment on "His House", the Fourth Kingdom.  Again, God's Judgment on the world comes after the "Season and Time".

Read Chapter 8.4 (The Purpose of "Daniel's Abomination") to learn how God's Judgment BEGINS with the last "wheat/sheep/saints",

(the "wise virgins") and then God Judges the last "tares/goats" (the "foolish virgins") as God's Judgment BEGINS with the "House of God".

God's Judgment on Satan's "Kingdoms of Man" (world governments) does not happen until AFTER God's Judgment on the Fourth Kingdom.

                                Christian Kingdom                                       Great Tribulation 

          -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

          Purpose:              Build the Temple/the "Body"             Judge His House/"House of God"

          Duration:             1260 days                               3 1/2 "Times"

                                A-Millennial Kingdom                    3 1/2 "Watches"

                                                                        3 1/2 Years (42 mos)

          -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

          Note: The duration of both the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" and (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom

          is shown in spiritual terms. The 1260 days of testimony, the 1000 years of Satan being "bound" and the

          A-Millennial Kingdom all represent the Church Age.  The 3 1/2 "Times/Days/Watches/Years" all represent

          separate-and-distinct periods of 2300 "evenings/mornings"... this reality is explained in detail below.

Obviously, the harvest of (Christian) Saints into the Great Tribulation Kingdom was never understood until it was "unsealed"

to the Wise Virgins during the "Season and Time".  Even to these Great Tribulation Saints, the 4th Kingdom LOOKED LIKE

it was part (the ending) of the New Testament Kingdom.  Daniel's Fourth Beast really was "like unto a Leopard" and, to this day,

those who were left-behind in the 3rd Kingdom - and those left-behind in the 4th Kingdom, can't "see" the difference in the two Beasts.

In Daniel [7:4] the Bible describes the first (Pre-Flood "Kingdom") as being a LION that had eagle's wings plucked off and then it was made

to stand like a man (showing both the pre-fall and post-fall state of the First Kingdom).  In Daniel [7:5] the Bible describes the Second Beast

(the Jewish "Kingdom") as being a BEAR.  In Daniel [7:6] the Bible shows the Third Beast (the Christian "Kingdom") as being a LEOPARD with four wings, and four heads, and (spiritual) "dominion" was given to it - as the Saints "ruled with Christ" during the Great Commission. 

In Daniel [7:6] the Bible describes the Fourth Great Tribulation "Kingdom" as being "dreadful and terrible" and notes the Beast was "diverse" (different) from the other three (previous) "Kingdoms of Heaven" on the earth.  The Fourth Kingdom was the reign of Satan's Anti-Christ.

The Saints "reigned" with Christ in the (3rd) Christian Kingdom - the Anti-Christ "ruled" with Satan during the (4th) "Kingdom of Heaven".

In Revelation [13:2] we are told the fourth (Great Tribulation/Revelation Beast) was LIKE A LEOPARD (looked like the Christian Kingdom).

We are also told it's feet were like a BEAR (the Jewish Kingdom) and it's mouth was like a LION (the Pre-Flood Kingdom).  And this was

exactly as it was fulfilled in history.  The ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" that "went forth" into the Fourth Kingdom [Mat 25:1] did not realize

they were establishing a FOURTH "Kingdom of Heaven"... as they followed the Anti-Christ (the "Little Horn" or "False Prophet")

into the period when Satan would be "loosened" from the Bottomless Pit to RULE the "ten virgins" during his "Little Season".

 

Rev 20:1-4   And 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.  And I saw

                     thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them [the previous Saints]: and I saw the souls

                     of them [the dead Saints] that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and which had

                     not worshiped 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 [during the A-Millennial Kingdom, or Church Age]

Rev 6:9-11    And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the SOULS [not bodies] of them that were

                     slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony which they held: [Saints "killed" before the Fourth Beast]

                     10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, Holy and True, dost Thou not judge and avenge

                     our blood on them that dwell on the earth?  11  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them,

                     that they should rest yet for a Little Season [the Fourth Kingdom] until their fellow servants also and their brethren

                     [all of the Fourth Kingdom Saints], that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. [this was fulfilled at

                     the end of the 5th Trumpet or First Woe - at the appointed hour/day/month/year... see Rev. 9:15]

The difference between the Christian Kingdom and Great Tribulation Kingdom is contrasted in Revelation 6:9-11.

First, at the beginning of the (4th) Great Tribulation, the previously slain Saints cry out for Judgment - and they are told

to wait a "Little Season" while all the "wise virgins" of the Great Tribulation Kingdom are (also) "killed", as they had been.

This demonstrates the spiritual "dominion" of the Two Witnesses during the duration of the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom" because

ALL of the Elect Saints were "sealed" (completing the "Body of Christ") before Satan could be "loosened" from the Bottomless Pit.

 

However, the passage also shows the spiritual "dominion" of Satan and his "Anti-Christ" during Satan's "Little Season"...

as they were able to "kill" the last (remaining) Saints - who had spiritual "dominion" during the entire Christian Kingdom.

Here we see the difference between (a) when the Saints "lived and reigned with Christ" and (b) Satan's rule after the Pit.

The Chronology of Daniel's Fourth Beast (the Great Tribulation), is shown from several different perspectives, and is followed by a period

known as the "Season and Time" before God's Judgment upon the "Kingdoms of Man" (world governments).  The chronology of the End

is shown as (1) the Fifth Trumpet Judgment and Sixth Trumpet Judgment - followed by the "Season and Time" before the Seventh Trumpet.

It is shown as (2) the seventh "Head/King" and the eighth "Head/King"... or the two "Beasts" living during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven".

It's also shown as (3) the First and Second "Woes" and as (4) the experiences of the Ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" living in the Fourth Kingdom.

But the most comprehensive chronology provided in the Bible - is of the four "Watches of the Night".  We reveal each of these perspectives.

Chapter 9.2   -   Context of End-Time Prophecies

There are (at least) four ESSENTIAL Bible Truths that must harmonize with our "gospel"... before we can even pretend to be able

to harmonize all related end-time prophecies (or "signs").  If we cannot harmonize these essential Bible Truths then (at best) we can only

bring some partial-truth (heresy) about the events AFTER the end of the "Great Commission" of the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven".

9.2.1     First (1st) Context of the Gospel (after the Great Commission)

In the Bible, the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" on earth, is shown as (1) Daniel's Fourth Beast and (2) as the 7-Headed Revelations Beast.

It's shown as (3) the Great Tribulation Kingdom, and it's shown as (4) the Reign of the Anti-Christ during (5) Satan's "Little Season".

This is fortunate because it gives us several different perspectives, and better understanding, about the SAME Biblical events.

9.2.2     Second (2nd) Context of the Gospel (after the Great Commission)

In other words, the people living during Daniel's Fourth Beast - are the same people alive during the 7-Headed Revelations Beast.

And the same people living through the Great Tribulation Kingdom, and the same people alive during the Reign of the Anti-Christ.

The people living in Daniel's Fourth Kingdom are the same people who are "overcome" and "killed" during Satan's "Little Season".

The events they experience are the same events... their experiences are the same.  Again, we can harmonize different perspectives.

9.2.3     Third (3rd) Context of the Gospel (after the Great Commission)

The FACT that the Bible specifically NAMES four different "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth can't be denied - it is the Gospel of the Bible.

Any denomination, church or preacher that cannot harmonize this FACT can only (at best) bring partial-truth... and cannot be taken seriously

because their "gospel" contradicts the Bible (Word of God).  Their gospel may harmonize with some Scripture but not ALL Related passages.

And THAT is how you discern Biblical Truth from false doctrine (or heresy)... for Truth, you must be able to harmonize all related passages.

9.2.4     Fourth (4th) Context of the Gospel (after the Great Commission)

The LAST "wheat and tares" on earth are called the Ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" and they are "overcome" to the point where they actually 

"agreeto give their Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" to the man called the "Little Horn", the "False Prophet" and the Revelation "Beast".

This is an essential understanding of Matthew 25:1... initially the "wise virgins" follow the Anti-Christ just like the "foolish virgins".

The "wheat and tares" are not separated until AFTER the end of the First Woe (after the end of the First Revelation Beast).

Rev 17:12   And the ten "Horns" which thou sawest are ten "Kings", which have received no kingdom as yet; [during the Church Age]

                    but receive power as Kings one hour [Satan's "Little Season"] with the Beast.  13 These ["Horns/Kings"] have one mind

                    and shall give their power and strength unto the Beast[They agree to follow the Anti-Christ as they "went forth"

                    from the Christian Kingdom - and followed him - preaching his Gospel during the Great Tribulation Kingdom].

Rev 17:17    For God hath put it in their [the ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins"] hearts to fulfill His Will,

                    and to agree and give their [Fourth] Kingdom unto the Beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Understanding some context allows us to harmonize dozens of passages and find the accurate Biblical CHRONOLOGY of events

occurring (a) during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" and (b) during the "Season and Time" or the "time-of-the-end" after completion

of the Third Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" (the Great Commission and/or the Church Age).  While it's a brief OUTLINE of the END,

by far, the most concise chronology of the END is shown in understanding historical fulfillment of the four (4) "Watches of the Night".

Chapter 9.3   -   Context of the Four "Watches of the Night

The Great Tribulation ("Kingdom of Heaven") has been recognized by most Christian churches, both Catholic and Protestant,

as the period immediately preceding the Lord's Return.  In order to understand the chronology of events in this Revelation Beast

we must first understand that the Great Tribulation is described as being four "watches of the night".  The Lord described this period

as being the "night" when no man can work.  The "night" when the saving of souls was no longer possible.  More than that, the Lord even

separated this "night" into four separate-and-distinct "watches", and He also blessed all the "wise virgins" living during this Fourth Kingdom

because we are "watching" for His Return during the "second watch", and during the "third watch"... and during the "fourth watch" of the night.

John 9:4       I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day [during the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom"... or the "Church Age"]:

                     the night cometh, [during the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom"] when no man can work [when their "testimony is finished",

                     since all of the "lost sheep" must be saved before Satan is "loosened"]  5  As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.

                     [see 2Th 2:7-8 (above) revealing the Holy Spirit must be "taken out of the way" BEFORE Satan can be "loosened" for this "night"]

 

Luke 12:36   And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their Lord, when He will Return from the Wedding; 

                     that when He cometh and knocketh, they may open unto Him immediately.  37  Blessed are those servants, 

                     whom the Lord when He Cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and make them

                     to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.  38  And if He shall come in the SECOND WATCH [of the night],

                     or come in the THIRD WATCH [of the night], and find them so [watching/waiting], blessed are those servants [the Last Saints].

                     [Note: the point about the Lord giving the Last Saints "meat" is a reference to us understanding "unsealed mysteries" at the END]. 

In fact, the Lord even NAMES each of these four "watches of the night".  And we know the Lord Returns during the FOURTH "watch"

because there are several passages that indicate that the Anti-Christ - and the Revelation Beasts - are destroyed about half-way through

the fourth "watch of the night".  Many different passages reveal that Satan (and his Anti-Christ) rule for 3.5 "watches/times/days/years".  Understanding the four "watches of the night" allows us to understand the chronology of events occurring during the Fourth Kingdom.

Note: no denomination, church or preacher is able to offer an "informed opinion" on the return of the Lord unless/until they can first

harmonize the four "watches of the night" into their eschatology - as the watches show the chronology of events at the end of time.

Mark 13:32   But of that day and hour [of His Return] knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

                     33  Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.  34  For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey,

                     who left His house, and gave authority to His servants [the wheat/sheep], and to every man his work, and commanded the 

                     porter to watch.  35  Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the Master of the house cometh, at the EVEN [watch],

                     or at the MIDNIGHT [watch], or at the COCKCROWING [watch], or in the MORNING [watch]

The Lord Jesus Christ taught the (4th) Great Tribulation (Revelation) "Kingdom" would be a spiritual "night" because all of the "lost sheep"

had already been found - and "sealed/saved/born-again" - before this "night" could begin.  And the Lord taught "the night" would occur when

the Holy Spirit is "taken out of the way only then could Satan be "loosened" from the "Bottomless Pit".  Moreover, the Lord actually NAMES

EACH of the "four watches" before the Final Harvest ("the marriage") is PAST... which is the point in time when "The DOOR WAS SHUT"

When the Bible says the Anti-Christ rules for 3.5 "times", that indicates he is destroyed during the fourth "watch of the night".

When the Bible says the prophets lay dead in the street for 3.5 "days", that means they arise during the fourth "watch of the night".

When the Bible says the Anti-Christ treads the Kingdom forty-two months (3.5 years) it means it ends in the fourth "watch of the night".

No denomination, church or pastor can pretend to understand the events - or the chronology - of the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom unless

they can separate Daniel's Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" (aka. the Revelation Beast) into four separate-and-distinct "watches/times/days/years".

          The "Woman" [the Last Saints] who are hidden from the face of the Serpent for 3.5 "times"  [Rev 12]

          The "Holy People" [the Last Saints] whose power is scattered by the Anti-Christ for 3.5 "times"  [Dan 7]

          The "Kings" [the Last Saints] that are given into his hand (into the Anti-Christ's hand) for 3.5 "times"  [Dan 7]

          The "Witnesses" [the Last Saints] which are first overcome, and then later killed, by Satan for 3.5 "days" [Rev 11]

          The "Holy City" [the Last Saints] which the Anti-Christ treads under foot for forty-two months or 3.5 "years"  [Rev 11]

          The "Kingdom" [the Last Saints] who are under the power of the Anti-Christ for forty-two months or 3.5 "years"  [Rev 13]

 

These four "watches of the night" are shown as 3.5 "times" and 3.5 "days" and 3.5 "years" (forty-two months).  The events shown

in the passages about these "times/days/years" all represent the same events, and the people living during these four "watches"

are the same people... the same "wheat and tares" living on earth when the Lord Jesus returns in Glory.  No denomination,

church or preacher can offer an informed opinion about these events (or these people) unless they can harmonize these

four "watches of the night"... and the experiences of the ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins", shown in DOZENS of passages.​​​

Chapter 9.4   -   Context of these four PRISONS of the Great Tribulation (Strong's G5438)

 

 

The Bible contains the Greek word translated "watch", in the verses below, exactly forty-seven (47) times in the New Testament.

In order to offer an informed opinion on the four "watches of the night" (Strong's G5438)... any commentator must first understand,

(and harmonize) the fact that the Bible almost always translates that Greek word (Strong's G5438) as the word PRISON and not "watch".

 

 

This is God's way of showing us that the four "watches of the night" of the Great Tribulation (Fourth Beast or Revelation Beast) are related

to the ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" being RULED by Satan - and his Anti-Christ - during that period.  God is showing that Satan RULES

over the Great Tribulation - and the ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" are in his PRISON (or imprisoned) during Satan's "Little Season".

Consider what an amazing insight God is providing (to the Saints) by using the word "prison" to identify the four "Watches".

Lk 12:38     And if He shall come in the Second Watch (Strong's G5438), or come in the Third Watch (Strong's G5438),

                    and find them so [waiting and watching for His Return], blessed are those servants [the Last Saints on earth].

Mt 14:25     And in the Fourth Watch of the Night (Strong's G5438) Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

                    [in this passage, the Saints in the ship represent the Last Saints during the Great Tribulation.  This is illustrated

                    in the language - as the Saints are being "tossed with waves" and the wind was "contrary" to them - as opposed

                    to during the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"... when the Saints "lived and reigned with Christ". Rev 20]

Mk 6:48     And He saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the Fourth Watch of the Night

                   (Strong's G5438) He Cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

                   [Again we see the contrast between the Saints "toiling in rowing" during the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom

                   when they had been healing people - and casting out demons - during the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"]

Mt. 24:43    But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what Watch (Strong's G5438) the thief would come,

                    he would not have suffered his house to be broken up.  [Remember, for the lost, Jesus Comes as a "thief in the night"

                    so this is another VERSE where Jesus indicates the Fourth Kingdom is a "night" in which only the Last Saints can "see"]

While the (KJV) Bible translates Strong's G5438 as the word PRISON over 40 times - it translates that word as "watch" [of the night]

only five times... indicating the four separate-and-distinct periods of the Great Tribulation were a PRISON for the Saints living during

the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven"... because Satan and his Anti-Christ ruled over these Last Saints for 3.5 "watches/times/days/years".

Note: the fourth "watch" was "shortened" for the sake of the Elect [Mat 24:22], which is why Satan's "prison" was only for 3.5 "watches".

 

The only (other) time the Bible does not translate Strong's G5438 as being a PRISON (or imprisoned) is in Rev. 18:2 when it talks about 

the period after Satan and the "Kingdom of Babylon" are defeated, before the end of the Second Woe or Sixth Trumpet (see Chapter 1.3),

when Strong's G5438 is translated as the word "cage" and then as the word "hold".  Obviously this is because, after the Revelation Beasts,

Satan is cast into an ETERNAL PRISON (you can see Chapter 7 for more details about the rise-and-fall of Satan's "Babylon the Great").

Rev 18:1-2   And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened

                    with His Glory.  And He cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become

                    the habitation of devils, and the "hold" (Strong's G5438) of every foul spirit, and a "cage" (Strong's G5438) of every 

                    unclean and hateful bird [the "unclean and hateful birds" represent the the "foolish virgins" of the Fourth Kingdom].

Again, it's absolutely amazing to realize that, by the Providence of Almighty God, the word translated forty (40) times as a PRISON,

the word translated as being the eternal "hold" and the eternal "cage" of Satan and the habitation of the devils... is also translated five times

as the word "watch" [of the night] which is only related to ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" living during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" on earth.

 

 

Clearly no denomination, church or preacher is qualified or capable of offering an informed opinion on the chronology of the end-times

unless and until they can first harmonize all related Scriptures about the four "watches of the night" when Satan and his Anti-Christ

RULE over the "ten virgins", so that they are in prison (or imprisoned) for a period shown as the 3.5 "times/days/years/watches".

And, as shown repeatedly already, this is NEW information only "unsealed" to the Last Saints, after Daniel's Fourth Beast

(the Revelation Beast) has been destroyed - during the "Season and Time" after the Great Tribulation is finished.

Chapter 9.5   -   Duration of each PRISON or each "Watch of the Night"

 

 

Before we can understand the chronology of the four "watches of the night" we need to know the duration of each "watch" and we need

to remember that we are talking about Judgment on the "House of God"... with Judgment first coming on the "wheat and sheep" (Saints)

during the First "watch of the night" (also called the Fifth Trumpet Judgment and/or the First Woe), and then God's Judgment comes on

the unsaved "tares and goats" during the Second, Third and Fourth "watches of the night" (also called the Sixth Trumpet Judgment and

the Second Woe).  Again, the four "watches of the night" are exclusive to the ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" being RULED by Satan and by

his "Anti-Christ" during (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven"... and does not include those (Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, Hindus,

Atheists, Agnostics, Human Secularists, Pagans, etc) outside of the Fourth Kingdom.

As shown several times throughout this little book, God's Judgment on those outside of the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" does not occur until

after the "time-of-the-end" or "Season and Time". God judges the "Kingdoms of Man" (world governments) after judging the "House of God".

We have only included limited information about God's (second) Judgment on the (physical/political) Kingdoms of the world... in Chapter 10.

Each "watch of the night" (each prison of the Fourth Kingdom) lasted for exactly 2300 days*.  And we can know absolutely that these days

are LITERAL DAYS because the literal translation of the Scripture says 2300 "evenings and mornings" [Dan 8:14 and 8:26].  

* Note: the Fourth "watch" was "shortened" for the sake of the Elect [Mat 24:22]

Dan 8.9      And out of one of them came forth a Little Horn [the "False Prophet" or the Anti-Christ], which waxed exceedingly great toward

                  the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.  10  And it [the Little Horn] waxed great even to the Host of Heaven;

                  and it cast down some of the Host and of the stars to the ground and stamped upon them 11  Yea, he [the Little Horn] magnified

                  himself even to the Prince of the Host, and by him the Daily Sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the Sanctuary was cast

                  down.  12  And an Host was given him against the Daily Sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it [the Little Horn] cast down

                  the truth [Gospel] to the ground; and it practised and prospered.  13  Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto

                  that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the Daily Sacrifice and the Transgression of Desolation

                  [aka. Daniel's Abomination of Desolation], to give both the Sanctuary and the Host to be trodden under foot?  14  And he said unto                    me, unto two thousand and three hundred days [2300 evenings and mornings]; then shall the Sanctuary [the Fourth Kingdom]

                  be cleansed [after the first 2300 day "watch"... after the First Woe... shall the Kingdom be cleansed of all the unsaved "tares/goats"].

Dan 8:26   And the vision of the [2300] evening and morning [the FIRST "watch of the night"] which was told is true:

                 wherefore SHUT thou up the vision ["seal" this prophecy from all the Saints]; for it shall be for many days.

                 [it is fulfilled during the days of the Last Saints]  

 

 

The Bible is very clear that (a) God's Judgment begins with the "House of God" (the "wheat and tares" living during the Fourth Kingdom) 

in the four separate "watches of the night" and the DURATION of these "watches" are 2300 literal days - or 2300 "evenings and mornings".

This is new information for those "tares/goats" left-behind in the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" and the "tares/goats" left-behind in

the Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven"... because this is one of the mysteries that God promised would remain "sealed" (to all Saints)

until the "Season and Time" (or the "time-of-the-end") after the destruction of Daniel's Fourth (Revelation) Beast.

While most "Christian" denominations, churches and preachers THINK the Great Tribulation lasts for seven years - or for 3.5 years...

these are the people who cannot even DEFINE the five "Kingdoms of Heaven", who have no idea about the truth of Daniel's prophecies

(because they remained "sealed" to them) and who know nothing about the four "watches of the night".  In other words, they are clueless

about the END of their Kingdom... just as the Jews in the Second "Kingdom of Heaven" were clueless about the END of their Kingdom.

Therefore, their "interpretations" of Biblical prophecy after the Great Commission is nothing more than an abstract fantasy.  Remember,

God PROMISED the truth would remain "sealed" until the "time-of-the-end", so eschatology developed before that "Season and Time"

must be immediately rejected  as false - because it was developed at a time when God said it would remain "Closed-Up" and "Sealed".

-------------------------------------------------------  EDIT IN PROGRESS  ------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 9.6   -   The most Simple Chronology -  the four "watches" of the Ten Virgins

The easiest example of the chronology of the Fourth Kingdom, or the Great Tribulation, (shown as the four "watches of the night")

is provided in Matthew 25, with the experiences of the "Ten Virgins" that "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven",

as they followed the Anti-Christ - preaching the Gospel of the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".  In this chapter we shall

show the historical fulfillment of the "ten virgins" of Daniel's Fourth Beast (the Revelation Beast).  Then, in the next chapters, we will

HARMONIZE related Scriptures with these four "watches of the night", experienced by the "Ten Virgins" during Satan's "Little Season".

(1)  The first "watch of the night"... during the first 2300 evening/mornings

Mat 25:1   Then [during the Great Tribulation] shall the "Kingdom of Heaven" be likened [look like] "ten virgins",

                  which took their lamps [their gospels], and "went forth" [from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"]

                  to meet the Bridegroom [the Lord Jesus]  2  And five of them were wise [saved "wheat/sheep"], and five

                  were foolish [unsaved "tares/goats"].  3  They that were foolish [unsaved] took their lamps [their gospels]

                  and took no oil [Holy Spirit] with them:  4  But the wise [saved] took oil in their vessels [being  "indwelt"]
                 
 and with their lamps [their gospels].

(2)  The second "watch of the night"... during the second 2300 evening/mornings

Mat 25:5   While the Bridegroom tarried [when the Lord did not return as preached in the Great Tribulation Gospel]

                  they [all ten virgins - both the wise and the foolish] "slumbered and slept[they had no gospel to preach].

(3)  The third "watch of the night"... during the third 2300 evening/mornings

Mat 25:6    And at midnight there was a cry made [by the Anti-Christ], Behold, the Bridegroom [Jesus Christ] Cometh;

                  go ye out to meet Him.  7  Then all those [all ten] virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps [adjusted their gospels].

                  [this represents the beginning of the Second Beast of the Great Tribulation - the Second Revelation Beast - Rev. 13]

Note: It was during the third "watch of the night" that God began to separate the "wheat and tares" by revealing to the "wise virgins"

(and to the "unprofitable servant") that the Gospel of the Second Revelation Beast did NOT harmonize with the Bible.  It was during

the Second Beast that the Saints (but not the "unprofitable servant") began to "see" they had been following the Anti-Christ during the first "watch of the night".

(4)  The fourth "watch of the night"... during the fourth 2300 evening/mornings (which were "shortened" for the Elect)

Mat 25:8     And the foolish [virgins] said to the wise [virgins], Give us of your oil; for our lamps [our gospels] have gone out.

                   9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you; but go ye rather to them that sell,

                   and buy for yourselves.  10  And while they [the foolish virgins] went to buy, the Bridegroom [Jesus Christ] Came,

                   and they that were ready [the "wise virgins"] went in with Him to the Marriage: AND THE DOOR WAS SHUT.

                   [The phrase "Door was Shut" means the "Final Harvest" is complete - nobody else can enter into the "Marriage"]

Note: These verses (Mat 25:8-10) prove beyond any doubt that the prophecy of the "ten virgins" did not represent events

occurring in the Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" or the Church Age.  There is no possibility that the events in this prophecy

represent events during the Great Commission because AT NO TIME during the Church Age would the Saints refuse to teach

the Gospel - and then send people to some other group for salvation.  However, these events harmonize exactly with what occurred 

during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" or the Revelation Beast.  In other words, the prophecy of the "ten virgins" could not represent

events beginning after Pentecost (during the Church Age), but it does represent events occurring during the Great Tribulation Kingdom.

It was during the fourth "watch of the night" that the "wise virgins" saw the great "falling-away" occur [2Th 2:3] in the Fourth Kingdom.  

It was during the fourth "watch of the night" that the "wise virgins" saw the Man of Sin "sitting" (ruling) in the "Temple of God", which is the same event as seeing Daniel's Abomination of Desolation "standing" (ruling) in the "Holy Place".  The fourth "watch of the night"

is when the "wheat and tares" are completely separated - as the "Final Harvest" occurs and the "DOOR WAS SHUT" (see Chapter 1.3).

 

Note: the "Temple of God" (where the Anti-Christ rules) and the "Holy Place" (where the Anti-Christ rules) are not physical buildings,

they both represent the "Bride of Christ" or the "Kingdom of God" which (at that time) was represented by the LAST SAINTS 

 

(5)  In the "Season and Time" after the Fourth Beast (Revelation Beast) was destroyed... and after the "DOOR WAS SHUT"

There is a time break between the end of the Fourth Beast (Revelation Beasts) and the resurrection of the dead - at the Lord's Appearing.

This time break is shown in Scripture as the "Season and Time" after the Great Tribulation or the "time-of-the-end" when the Last Saints

understand (and preach) Biblical mysteries that remained "sealed" until after the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven".  Information none of the

unsaved "tares/goats" within the Fourth Kingdom are able to understand or accept... much less those who were OUTSIDE the Kingdom.

This "Season and Time" is shown in many different Scriptures (see Chapter 1.3), but typically it's shown as the brief period on earth

after the end of the Second Woe, the Sixth Trumpet Judgment - or judgment on the "House of God" (see Chapter 8.2) and the period before the Third Woe or Seventh Trumpet - or judgment on the physical/political "Kingdoms of Man" (all of the world governments). 

While we briefly discuss (Chapter 10) God's Judgment on the physical and political governments of the world, for now we will focus

on the chronology of Daniel's Fourth Beast the Revelation Beast(s) during the Great Tribulation and/or during Satan's "Little Season".

Bottom Line:  There are only TWO choices for the reader - they must believe that the prophecy of the "ten virgins" has already happened

or they must preach the prophecy is a future event.  However, there is no (mainstream) Christian eschatology that preaches these events

happen sometime in the future - after the end of the Great Commission of the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven".  So that option has 

no (church) support whatsoever.  Assuming the Lord Jesus was not just telling a fairy tale (or a LIE) this prophecy must be harmonized

with history, either past or future.  And it can only be harmonized with events within the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".

Assuming no "Christian" will ever argue the parable/prophecy of the "Ten Virgins" (also shown as the ten "Horns" and the ten "Kings")

was simply a fairy tale (or a LIE) told by the Lord Jesus Christ... Denominations, churches and preachers have only TWO OPTIONS:

(a)  They can argue that the "DOOR WAS SHUT" (the Final Harvest was over) before the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" was

finished (as in 70AD or 1000AD or 1500AD) or (b) they MUST argue that the historical fulfillment of the prophecy is a future event.

However, if they argue it's a future event, then they must explain (a) the who/what/when/where and why the Saints (the "Wise Virgins")

actually "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" into the (4th) Great Tribulation (Revelation) "Kingdom of Heaven".

and (b) they must explain when/where and why the Saints would [Mat 25:8-10] REFUSE to preach the Gospel - and would send people to some other group for their salvation.  Obviously that scenario is not supported by any Scripture related to the Church Age, but it does fit exactly with events occurring during the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".

Chapter 9.7   -   Events occurring during the First "Watch of the Night"

 

 

The most important information to allow any denomination, church or preacher to offer an "informed opinion" on the historical fulfillment

of (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" prophecies ("signs") is to understand (a) the CONTEXT of those events were exclusive to 

the ten "Horns/Kings/Virginswho followed the Anti-Christ, as they "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven", and that

(b) this event could not happen until after the END of the "Great Commission" when all the lost "sheep" had been "saved/sealed/born again" and (c) this event could not happen until the "testimony" of the Last Saints was "finished" (as all lost sheep had to have already been saved) and (d) contrary to the eschatology of the churches, the Anti-Christ did not RULE the entire "world" or "earth" (see Chapter 8.1 - note #3),

instead, he ruled over the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven", which consisted of the LAST "wheat and tares" on earth before His Return.

Mat 25:1       Then [at that time] shall the [Fourth or Great Tribulation] "Kingdom of Heaven"

                      be likened unto [look like] TEN VIRGINS [also called the ten "kings" and the ten "horns"]

                      which took their lamps [took their Gospels] and went forth [from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"

                      into the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven"] to meet the Bridegroom [to meet the Returning Lord Jesus Christ]

Rev 7:2-3     And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the Living God: and he cried with a loud voice 

                     to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea,

                     nor the trees, till we have SEALED the servants of our God in their foreheads [until all the Saints are saved].

Rev 11:7      And when they [the Last Saints] shall have finished their testimony [and all "wheat/sheep" are sealed],

                     the Beast that ascendeth out of the Bottomless Pit shall make war against them [the Last Saints], 

                     and shall overcome them, and kill them [during the Fourth Beast or the Revelation Beast].

Rev 12:17    And the Dragon [Satan] was wroth with the woman [the church], and went to make war with the remnant of her seed

                     [the Last Saints on earth] which keep the commandments of God, and have the Testimony of Jesus Christ.

Instead, during the First "watch of the night", Satan and his Anti-Christ were attacking the Last Saints (the "remnant" of the "wheat/sheep"), those who "keep the commandments of God and have the Testimony of Jesus Christ".  This is the reason the Anti-Christ did not disrupt any

of the apostate Catholic churches or the HUNDREDS of apostate Protestant churches - much less the people who were NOT associated with

the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven", like the Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Agnostics, Secular Humanists, Pagans, etc. 

 

 

The last "wheat and tares" on earth did not decide to depart ("went forth") from their churches in the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"

in order to follow some STRANGER, into the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".  Instead, the Anti-Christ had been a very

well known Bible teacher, with a ministry of about fifty (50) years - before he began to preach the Gospel of the "Fourth Kingdom".

Make no mistake, the Bible (Isaiah 10) teaches that God USED the Anti-Christ to bring Judgment on the last "wheat and tares".

As already shown (Chapter 8.2) Judgment BEGINS at the "House of God" before Judgment come to world governments.

For decades this Anti-Christ had earned the respect and admiration of many Bible "scholars", denominations, churches and pastors because his preaching was based on traditional Reformed and traditional Orthodox Protestant theology.  In the view of many (even those who did

not leave their churches to follow him) he was by far the most "enlightened" Bible teacher since the Reformation. He had demonstrated

a unique understanding of Scripture - which is why the Bible says (e) he was able to "understand dark sentences" (Biblical mysteries)

and how (f) he was able to "obtain the [Fourth] Kingdom with flatteries".

Chapter 9.8   -   Events occurring during the Second "Watch of the Night"

During the second "watch of the night" (the beginning of the Second Woe and Sixth Trumpet Judgment), the "wise virgins",

which are represented by Daniel as the three "horns" that are "plucked-up" by the "Little Horn", and killed at the appointed time...

at the appointed "hour, and day and month and year"... while the foolish virgins are not killed.  Also, the First Revelation Beast suffers

what appears to be a fatal "head" wound.  The result of these events is that the Gospel of the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" is silenced while the participants (ten "horns/kings/virgins") of the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" are said to have "slumber and slept" [Mat 25:5].

Rev 9:12    One Woe is past [the Fifth Trumpet Judgment on the "wise virgins" is past]: and, behold, there come Two Woes more hereafter.

                  13  And the Sixth Angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,  14  Saying

                  to the Sixth Angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.  15  And 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 [which also shown as Daniel's three "horns" that were "plucked-up" by the Anti-Christ].

Rev 13:3   And I saw one of his [the Fourth Beast's] heads as it were wounded to death... [see the rest of verse in next chapter]

Mat 25:5   While the Bridegroom tarried [when the Lord did not returned as preached in their Great Tribulation gospel]

                  they [all of the ten virgins - both the wise and the foolish] "slumbered and slept[they had no gospel to preach].

Mat 24:29  Immediately after the tribulation of those days [after the first Woe, the Fifth Trumpet and the first "watch of the night"]

                  shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven [re-read Rev 9:1-3]

                  and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken [representing the Saints, or "light-givers" of the Gospel are now silenced].

 

Mk 13:24  But in those days, after that Tribulation [of the first Woe, the Fifth Trumpet and the first "watch of the night"]

                  the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,  25  And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers

                  of heaven shall be shaken [representing the last Saints, the "light-givers" of the Gospel, now silenced for the next 2300 days].

Lk 21:25   And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon [again the light givers] and in the stars [the last Saints]

                  and upon the earth [in the Fourth Beast/Revelation Beast] distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves

                  [all the foolish virgins] roaring; and men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming

                  on the earth [during the Fourth Beast/Revelation Beast]: for the powers of [in the Fourth Kingdom of] heaven shall be shaken.

Note #2: it's completely nonsensical, and directly contradictory to many other related Scriptures to pretend these "signs" after the Tribulation

of the first [2300 day] "watch of the night" (the Judgment on the "House of God") are physical events - because we have many other passages

which teach the Lord's Coming is completely unexpected [Mat 24:37-51].  Clearly, the Lord Jesus can never come as "a thief in the night" when there are literally dozens of PHYSICAL "signs" preceding His Return.  Again we are simply seeing the fulfillment of God's PROMISE that

the truth (of Daniel's prophecies and Great Tribulation events) would remain "sealed" until after the Fourth Beast/Revelation Beast has been

destroyed... and then those Biblical mysteries would be understood (and preached) by the last saints during the "Season and Time", but also

they are not understood, or accepted, by ANY of the living "tares"... much less by any of the people outside of the last "Kingdom of Heaven".

Moreover, denominations/churches/preachers not understanding the fulfillment of the second 2300 "evenings/mornings"...

of the SECOND "watch of the night", have the same problem as those not understanding the prophetic (or the historical) fulfillment

of the FIRST (2300 day) "watch of the night".  They must both (a) deny that this prophetic EVENT has actually occurred in church history,

even though it was witnessed HISTORY in many of the most conservative reformed/orthodox/traditional Protestant churches  or the time and

(b) they must also deny this prophetic events EVER occur in history - because that contradicts their eschatology and, therefore, their "gospel".

Please carefully re-read (and then diligently harmonize ALL RELATED Scriptures) associated with Note #1 - cited in chapter 9.6 above...

either these prophetic events ("signs") have already happened in history/reality or they are future events.  Denominations/churches preachers

cannot have it BOTH ways unless they teach Jesus was prone to telling "fairy tales" (or blatant LIES) about events in the Fourth Kingdom.

Chapter 9.9   -   Events occurring during the Third "Watch of the Night"

 

 

It was during the third "watch of the night" that God began to separate the "wheat" from the "tares" by revealing 

Daniel's "Abomination of Desolation" (but only to the Saints) and by "unsealing" some of these Biblical mysteries

which had remained "sealed" to Daniel - and "sealed" to the Apostles, and to all of the Saints for thousands of years.

 

During the third "watch of the night" the "wise virgins" see Daniel's Abomination and "flee"... which is itself one of the "signs" of the end.

During the third "watch of the night" the "wise virgins" see the great falling-away and the "Man of Sin" is revealed as ruling the Kingdom.

During the third "watch of the night" the "wise virgins" understand that (by God's Will) they had agreed to give their Kingdom to the Beast.

Mat 25:6    And at midnight there was a cry made [by the Anti-Christ], Behold, the Bridegroom [Jesus] cometh;

                  go ye out to meet Him.  7  Then all those [ten] virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps [adjusted their gospels].

Rev 13:3    And I saw one of his [Fourth/Revelation Beast's] heads [the seventh head or the Anti-Christ] as it were wounded to death;

                  and his [the Anti-Christ's] deadly wound was healed: and all the world [all of the Fourth Kingdom] wondered after

                  the [second] Beast.  And they worshiped [Satan] the Dragon which gave power unto the [second] Beast, saying,

                  Who is able to make war with him?

Rev 13:11  And I beheld another [second] Beast coming out of the earth; and he [the recovered Anti-Christ] had two horns

                  like a lamb [his Gospel looked like Christ's Gospel], and he spoke as a Dragon [but he spoke for Satan].  12  And he

                  [the recovered Anti-Christ] exercised all the power of the FIRST BEAST before him, and causeth the earth [Kingdom]

                  and them which dwell therein to worship the FIRST BEAST, whose deadly wound was healed.

Rev 17:10  And there are seven kings [or seven "heads" to Daniel's Beasts]: five are fallen [when Saint John wrote his prophecy]

                  and one is [when John wrote his prophecy] and the other is not come [when John wrote]; and when he [the seventh king]

                  cometh, he must continue a short space [the first "watch of the night"]  11  And the Beast that was [before the Church Age]

                  and is not [during the Church Age or A-Millennial Kingdom], even he is the eighth ["king/head"], and is OF THE SEVENTH

                  [the seventh Head/King and eighth King are the same person], and goeth into perdition [at the end of the Fourth Kingdom].

 

 

-------------   Edit in Progress   ---------------

Chapter 9.10   -   Events occurring during the Fourth "Watch of the Night

 

 

While the fourth "watch of the night" should have been 2300 days.  This period (called the "Days of Vengeance") ended

about half-way through that time.  This is shown very clearly in all the many passages that document the Great Tribulation lasts

for 3.5 "times/days/years/watches"... in other words, the Fourth Beast/Revelation Beast is destroyed BEFORE the end of the 2300 days.

This reality is also clearly shown by the fact that Scripture specifically states that the rule of Satan and his Anti-Christ is "shortened"

for the sake of the elect which are still on earth (the last Saints).

 

Mt 24:21   For then [during the fourth "watch"] shall be Great Tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time,

                  no, nor ever shall be.  22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake

                  those days shall be shortened.

 

Lk 21:20   And when ye shall see Jerusalem [the Fourth Kingdom] compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

                  21  Then let them which are in Judaea [the wise virgins] flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it 

                  depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.  22  For these be the DAYS OF VENGEANCE

                  that all things which are written [all prophecies about the Great Tribulation Kingdom] may be fulfilled.

 

Dan 12:1   And at that time [during the fourth "watch"] 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 written in the Book.

 

Mk 13:19  For in those days [during the fourth "watch"] shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation

                  which God created unto this time, neither shall be.  20  And except that the Lord had shortened those days,

                  no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom He hast chosen, He hath shortened the days.

During the "shortened" days of the fourth "watch of the night", during the "Days of Vengeance" in which there was affliction that was

unlike anything since creation - or anything which would ever be - God finished the separation of "wise virgins and foolish virgins",

which began during the Third "watch", as the Second Beast arose and the ten virgins "trimmed their lamps" [Gospels], and God

began to reveal "unsealed" Biblical mysteries and fulfillment of Great Tribulation prophecies ("signs") to the wise virgins.

 

While never understood by any Saint, until the "Season and Time", the separation of the last "wheat and tares" on earth (the final harvest)

was (a) during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" on earth and not during the Church Age and (2) the final harvest ONLY included the souls

of the last Saints (the wise virgins)... because that harmonizes with all Scripture and it's a fundamental principal that flesh and blood cannot   

enter into the Fifth (eternal) "Kingdom of Heaven" [1Co 15:50].  Passages, like the one below, that describe the final harvest of the wise virgins,

occurred during the Fourth "watch" (and not - as presumed - during the Church Age) and they included ONLY the souls of the wise virgins.

Mat 24:27  For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be.

                  28  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Mat 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven [in the Fourth Kingdom]: and then shall all the tribes of the earth

                  [those in the Fourth Kingdom] mourn, and they [the wise virgins] shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven

                  with power and great glory.  31  And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together

                  His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven [the Fourth Kingdom] to the other.

Mat 24:40  Then shall two be in the field, and one shall be taken, and the other left.  41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill

                  the one shall be taken, and the other left.  42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doeth come.  43

                  But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known IN WHAT WATCH the thief would come, he would have 

                  watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as

                  ye think not the Son of man cometh.

 

Recognizing these are "unsealed" Biblical mysteries and fulfillment of Great Tribulation events ("signs") which God PROMISED

would not be understood until the "Season and Time" after destruction of Daniel's Fourth Beast / the Revelation Beast - and that they

would ONLY be understood by the last of the "wise virgins"... it should be remembered that there are DOZENS of passages that confirm

the final harvest (a) occurs during the Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" (and not the Third Kingdom) and (b) the final harvest includes ONLY

the souls of the last Saints and (c) there is a "Season and Time" on earth after the final harvest when God Judges the "Kingdoms of Man"

(the governments of the world).

In fact, during the (3rd) Christian Kingdom most of our confusion about the "end-of-the-world" was the result of conflating

prophecies about "the end" of the FOURTH Kingdom ... with "the end" of the Church Age (end of the "Millennial Kingdom").

Traditional Christian eschatology teaches the (4th) Great Tribulation period is just some PART (the ending) of the Church Age,

and not a separate and distinct FOURTH "Kingdom of Heaven".  However, the Bible contains many prophecies about "the end"

of the FOURTH Kingdom, and several prophecies about the "Season and Time" on earth after destruction of "Babylon the Great".

                                  -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below are some passages showing the "Final Harvest" of the (souls of the) Last Saints before "the end" of the FOURTH Kingdom.

Passages that show the "time-of-the-end" and "Season and Time" on earth after the destruction of that 7-Headed Revelations Beast,

and passages showing the period after the end of the "Sixth Trumpet" (after the "Second Woe")... but before the Seventh Trumpet.

Unless we can harmonize all of these passages into our existing 'gospel', until we can harmonize all of these passages of Scripture,

we demonstrate that (at best) our 'gospel' only reveals some partial-truths, and is NOT the "new song" revealed by the Last Saints.

(a)   The "Final Harvest" of (the souls of) the Last Saints occurs before the destruction of "Babylon the Great".

        In Revelation 18 the destruction of the Fourth Kingdom is shown [v.2] as "Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen".

        The "Final Harvest" of Saints, immediately before the destruction of Babylon, is shown [v.4] as the Lord Commands

        the Last Saints to "Come out of her, My people".  And Saints are told [v.20] to "rejoice" over the destruction of Babylon

        for "God hath avenged you on her".

(b)   The "Final Harvest" of Last Saints is shown as the "Supper of the Great God" and/or the "Marriage Supper of the Lamb".

        In Revelation 19 the destruction of Babylon is shown [v.20] as the False Prophet and Revelations Beast are "cast alive"

        into the eternal "Lake-of-Fire".  The "Final Harvest" immediately before destruction of the "great whore" [v.2] is shown

        as the Saints are commanded [v.17] to "gather yourselves together unto the SUPPER of the Great God".  Then again [v.9]

        the "Final Harvest" is shown when the Saints are "called unto the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the Lamb". And once more

        we see [v.2] that, when God destroys the Kingdom of Babylon the Great, He also "hath avenged the blood of His servants".

(c)   The "Final Harvest" and/or the "Marriage Supper" occur before the end of the "Second Woe".

        In Revelation 11 the destruction of Babylon is shown [v.13] as a "great earthquake", and the "Final Harvest"

        is shown [v.12] as the Last Saints are commanded to "Come up hither.  And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud".

        Again the "Final Harvest" is shown occurring immediately before destruction of the Fourth Beast.  However, this time,

        the Bible reveals [v.14] the TIME for fulfillment of this event - just before the end of the "Second Woe"... that is important.

(d)  There's a "Season and Time" or "time-of-the-end" on earth after the "Final Harvest" of the FOURTH Kingdom Saints.

        In Matthew 25 the destruction of the Fourth Kingdom of "Babylon the Great" is shown [v.10] when the "Door was Shut".

        The "Final Harvest" is again shown [v.10] as a "Marriage" with "they that were ready went in with Him to the Marriage".

        Again, the "Final Harvest" occurs before the "Door was Shut".  However, in this case we see [v.11] a period on earth

        after the "Final Harvest" is finished - as the Bible reveals "afterward came also the other virgins".  This period

        after the "Door was Shut" is the special period, which the Bible specifically NAMES the "Season and Time".

(e)  The Bible actually reveals the NAME of the period on earth after the "Final Harvest" of Saints.

        In Daniel 7 the destruction of the Fourth Beast is shown [v.11] when "the Beast was slain, and his body destroyed,

        and given to the Burning Flame".  The "Final Harvest" of Saints is shown [v.18] as "the Saints of the Most High

        shall take the Kingdom, and possess the Kingdom forever, even for ever and ever".  Again, the "Final Harvest"

        of the Great Tribulation Saints is shown [v.22] when "Judgment was given to the Saints of the Most High; and

        the time came that the Saints possessed the Kingdom".

        In Daniel 7 the Bible actually reveals the NAME of the period on earth after the "Final Harvest" of Saints, and

        after destruction of the Fourth Beast.  The Bible [Dan 7:12] specifically names this period the "Season and Time".

Dan 8.9      And out of one of them came forth a Little Horn [the "False Prophet" or the Anti-Christ], which waxed exceedingly great

                   toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.  10  And it [the Little Horn] waxed great [prospered]

                   even to the Host of Heaven [the last "wheat/sheep/saints"]; and it cast down some of the Host and of the stars [Last Saints]

                   to the ground and stamped upon them [ruled over them].  11  Yea, he [the Little Horn] magnified himself even to the Prince

                   of the Host [he acted as if he was God - harmonize this with 2Th 2:7-8], and by him the Daily Sacrifice was taken away, and

                   the place of the Sanctuary was cast down.  12  And an Host was given him against the Daily Sacrifice by reason of transgression,

                   and it [the Little Horn] cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised and prospered.  13  Then I heard one saint speaking,

                   and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the Daily Sacrifice and

                   the Transgression of Desolation [aka. Daniel's Abomination of Desolation], to give both the Sanctuary and the Host to be

                   trodden under foot?  14  And he said unto me, under two thousand and three hundred days [2300 evenings/mornings];

                   then [after that first 2300 day "watch of the night"] shall the Sanctuary [the Fourth Kingdom] be cleansed.
