“The Time is Fulfilled; the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand; Repent & Believe the Gospel” in a New Big Picture!
Please consider how Christ’s words apply now with new meaning—with high reward or serious loss if we shrug off.
#1. The Bible has many lessons and in the end-time, they superimpose or reapply. For example, when Christ said, the time is fulfilled, it’s a different time now. God gives us six days and 6,000 years to do our work, but 50 jubilees with historic biblical dating and the papal visits intersecting three Bible timelines support the 6,000 years as complete. http://bit.ly/1UHgknC For those who don’t follow timelines, “when-then” signs also show it, http://bit.ly/1n0n01M In addition to these, 12 men in history have believed 2016 may bring us to the endtimes: http://bit.ly/25jBlXL
#2. There’s a 7-year ending like Joseph’s famine, the king ate grass for 7 years–Dan 4, 7 days in Jericho’s conquest, blowing a trumpet for a trip each day (six trumpets in Rev 8, 9) and 7 trips on 7th day like 7 last plagues. God gives His side power for 1260 days after which the beast has power for 42 months (Rev 11:3-7; 13:5) “As the Father sent Me, so send I you,” We may now have three years till the night comes when no man can work, even as Christ was taken at midnight in the midst of His 70th week. As Israel lost their sovereignty and were under Rome, we may see
a parallel with a US civil war for Constitutional rights and the loss of freedom in martial law~Rome in Christ’s time.
#3. “The kingdom of heaven is at hand,” Mark 1:15. So it is now, but with an added dimension. He said it is within you, blessed are the poor in spirit, the meek, the merciful. This can be so for us also like when the disciples asked if Christ would restore the kingdom to Israel in Acts 1:6. He said, “It is not for you to know the times and seasons…” Paul said, we know them perfectly…“the day of the Lord comes when they shall say ‘Peace & safety.” 1Thess 5:2,3
Israel was impacted last year when six nations signed a ‘peace and safety’ nuclear treaty with Iran.’ Their breach of the treaty and hostility to Israel may come in the spring soon. (2Sam 11:1; Zech 14:2; Dan 9:25 offer insights)
#4. In looking for a kingdom like the disciples, we should see that Israel became a kingdom when God took them through calamity (midnight cry, Exod 12:29; Matt 25:6) to a covenant that made them His kingdom, Exod 19:5,6. In doing so, He had dominion through His laws—king—domionion. We will need to come through calamity and
be ready to make a covenant, but this time we have a better opportunity to understand what God wants from us. Ellen White’s last definition of the church is a “covenant-keeping people” PK 714 shows it’s a huge opportunity.
#5. “Repent.” “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul.” Ps 19:7. The New Covenant Promise to write His law in our hearts has a latter-day context, Jer 30:24; 31:1. We won’t be ready to go to heaven without it being fulfilled to us, so there is a deeper repentance than we see now, and a new meaning of law for many who think it’s the 10 Commandments–they were the “testimony.” “Law” comes from the Hebrew word, torah, it’s the five books
of Moses with the statutes, judgments and case histories to show how God applied the law, Mal 4:4,5; Matt 17:11. These texts offer one aspect of what Christ said was to be restored before He comes. We are to repair the breach…
#6. Believe the Gospel.” Throughout history, the good news has been different. Noah offered flood insurance.
The good news to Abraham was real estate. Moses offered freedom from bondage. Christ offered freedom from sin. For us, it’s better than any of those because it is ALL of those! “As the days of Noah” we can be spared widespread destruction and loss of life. Better than the land for Abraham, “in My Father’s house are many mansions.” Jn 14:1-3
#7. The gospel—good news, is seen in the wedding parables. If we understand them, “He will make [us] ruler over all that He has,” Lk 12:32-48. God said He was married to Israel (Jer 3:14) but He got an ignorant bride. This must not happen to Christ. We must be ready, “that when He comes and knocks, [we] may open unto Him immediately.” This can only happen if we have previously considered the topics necessary for our covenant (marriage) with Him. They’re marked for end-times by a 7-fold emphasis, like Revelation is a book of 7’s. If the reader desires to be ruler over all that He has, we need to know the basis of our covenant, like His name, His laws, ‘the book of the covenant.’
Please visit http://GodsName1stSeal.wordpress.com for the 1st seal. A link at the bottom takes you to the 2nd seal etc All of this to the intent that we may play a biblical role as Christ for 3 years, ready for a ‘cut off’ in midst of the last week (Dan 9) as world events fit what God declared from the beginning, Isa 46:10. Genesis in reverse = Revelation.
All three wedding parables show a sudden event beyond which it is too late to get ready. Matt 22 is about inviting others to a (spiritual) feast, as link above. Matt 25:6 is about a ‘sudden unlooked-for calamity’ as fell on Egypt with a ‘midnight cry.’ COL 412. Luke 12:32-48 is about “ruler over all that He has” or beaten with stripes if we aren’t ready.

Summary: Pope Francis’ UN visit last fall intersected three biblical timelines with end-time significance. They include the jubilee cycles (good news) and Peter’s comment that 1000 years are as a day with an impending time of judgment.
Pope Francis’ timing for his UN address had awesome significance; the papal UN visits mark the jubilee of jubilees and signal a time of judgment that some Christians call the tribulation:
#1. The 4th Commandment (eliminated from schools–the average person has little understanding of this all-time best-seller) says that God gives man six days to do his work, with the 7th day as a Sabbath, a memorial to God’s Creation of the world in six days. A system of sevens re-enforced this for Israel in Leviticus 25 where they worked the land for six years and rested it during a sabbatical year.
After seven sabbatical years, on the Day of Atonement, jubilee was proclaimed as slaves were released and debts were cancelled in the 50th year. We might wonder if debts will be cancelled in an impending collapse.
The jubilee year was also the first year of the next sequence so that jubilees came every 49 years. The 70-week prophecy (70 x 7) of Daniel 9 (490 years) spanned 10 jubilees (70 x 7 = 49 x 10) and pointed also to the Messiah.
That prophecy began with a jubilee event in 457 BC when Artaxerxes gave Israelites freedom to leave Persia and to rebuild Jerusalem. The 490 years ended in 34 AD (no year “0”).
Forty more jubilees of 49 years bring us to 1994-95—the jubilee (50th) of jubilees from 457 BC, and in 1995, Pope John Paul II spoke to the UN General Assembly, and it was on the Day of Atonement.
Most Jews would not recognize that fact because they use astronomy to mark the new month when the moon is in conjunction with the sun and it cannot be seen. In Bible times, the thin crescent in the western sky after sunset was counted as the new moon and beginning of the new month.
#2. Using the visible crescent, the papal visits to the UN were on the Day of Atonement, both in 1995 and 2015 and it introduces a 2nd timeline because 20 jubilees (20 x 49) = 980 years with 20 extra years in a 1000 years. With 20 years between papal visits on the Day of Atonement, 2015 marked the end of 6,000 years from Creation and bring us to what St. Peter said not to ignore–
“1000 years are as a day…God is not slack [the Greek word, braduno, means no tarrying or delay] the day of the Lord will come.” (2Peter 3:8-10) If there is no tarrying or delay, we should expect a time of judgment to begin this spring.
#3. A 3rd timeline occurred when 50 thousand Christians accepted Baptist Wm Miller’s message of impending judgment, based on a misunderstanding of Daniel and ‘the Bridegroom comes,’ (they thought it was a rapture), they suffered a Great Disappointment in 1844.
This was typified by John’s ‘bitter belly’ when he ate the little book of Daniel in the 10th of Revelation, but John was told to ‘prophesy again,’ which means those same messages will fit later, but when?
The context of the judgment in Daniel 7 is the key. The context before and after the judgment is the ‘great words’ of the little horn which Protestant reformers said was the papacy. In 1844 the pope had no great words. Napoleon took the pope prisoner and he died in exile.
But in 2015, the pope had ‘great words’ for the UN General Assembly on the Day of Atonement. With this missing ingredient from 1844 now satisfied, the Angel’s words to John, ‘Prophesy again’ fit. A time of judgment is impending and it is also good news for Christians who believe ‘the Bridegroom comes.’
Christ’s wedding parables offer high destiny for readiness and understanding but serious loss for failure. This begs a better understanding but it’s beyond the scope of this release. Readers can get more information at website, http://MayJudgmentDay.com
For those who have difficulty with math, God gave some ‘when-then’ signs that also point to this spring for huge events. They may be considered at http://bit.ly/1n0n01M
General Conference leaders voted a hierarchical church structure as when the Papacy was made. PT Magan, GC Bulletin, 1903, p 150.
Ellen White’s response was clear: “How is the faithful city become an harlot? My Father’s house is made a house of merchandise, a place whence the divine presence and glory have departed.” 8Testimonies, p 250. She had previously dreamed of church leaders becoming Catholic in 1Testimonies, p 577.
Two years later she wrote, “The great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout.” Spec Testimonies Series B, 1905
Ellen White seemed to know they would burn her Series B warning, so she warned us again in her comment on Jeremiah 36, where the king burned Jeremiah’s scroll: “This chapter is a record of historical events that will be repeated. Let all who desire to receive warning read carefully.” 4BC 1159.
In 1988, BT Anderson, a retired custodian of the General Conference said that he was asked to stoke up the furnace in the basement–they had some extra books that weren’t needed, and they tossed them in the furnace. He choked the fire out after they left and printed them himself.
If Mrs. White was correct, church members are in grave danger of staying in the church beyond the point “when judgment begins at the house of God” (1Pet 4:17) and it is clear that judgment has fallen as she saw in her earthquake vision at Loma Linda, a school she founded for medical missionary training with natural remedies, but church leaders taught pharmacology to become an accredited medical school against her will. She said, “Many lives were blotted out…It seemed that…Judgment day had come.” 9T 93.
Until then, we should be proclaiming a time of judgment as supported by five ‘when-then’ signs last year. Current church leadership at the top and several levels seems unwilling to address the issues.

Summary: A pastor dreamed of an African-American president with Obama’s description, well-liked at first, but he became a ‘terrible dictator.’ The dream was not shared widely because it seemed impossible in the 1980’s. (Google or click ‘Jack Darnall’s Dream‘)
Jack Darnall, a Seventh-day Adventist pastor was running a ‘prepper’ Bible prophecy course 36 years ago in California when this author met him. Darnall is deceased but his dream describes a tall, thin, close-cropped hair and large eared, black president who became a ‘terrible dictator.’ We look now at how he could be president when Christ comes.
Five ‘when-then’ events from 2015 signal the end-time ‘day of the Lord,’ to begin this spring, based on the solar eclipse followed by a blood moon two weeks later on Passover in 2015. The Bible says, “The sun shall be darkened and the moon turned to blood before [paniym means facing] the day of the Lord.” in the last verses of Joel’s 2nd chapter. Those signal events of 2015 face this year.
“The day of the Lord” brings bad news for Israel because the 14th of Zechariah shows it linked to hostile forces surrounding Jerusalem with houses rifled and women raped. Additional basis for this is explained at http://bit.ly/1Kk22zW If we see this at Passover, a biblical time of judgment, it signals Christ’s sayings in the last half of Matthew’s 24th chapter as follows:
“Learn a parable of a fig tree.” It was a tree that had leaves but no fruit. It represented the Jewish nation, professing to be a godly nation, but they lacked the fruits of righteousness. In an acted parable, Christ cursed the fig tree and it withered in the 21st chapter of Matthew. But how about the United States now? We profess to be a godly nation, but Roe v Wade showed the US more like Egypt that killed infants.
God took Israel from Egypt to a covenant relationship, later saying, “I am married to you,” and it’s in that sense Christians should understand the wedding parables and God’s protection of His covenant-keeping people in the land of the covenant as the context of the New Covenant Promise shows in the 31st of Jeremiah and affirmed by the apostle Paul in his 3rd chapter to the Galatians, last verse.
“As the days of Noah,” we may expect a sudden calamity that causes many deaths and devastates our nation–it’s probably an earthquake that does this because “the day of the Lord” is linked to an earthquake in several passages and the apostle Paul said it comes with “sudden destruction” when they say ‘Peace and safety’ (Iran Nuclear Treaty) in the 5th chapter of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians.
“Then shall two be in the field. One shall be taken and the other left.” This was the basis of fictional books and movies on a sudden rapture, but it ignores the context at the end of the 17th chapter of Luke where the disciples asked, Where [taken]? Christ said, Where the body is, there will the vultures be. This reference by Christ may be about martial law as a result of the earthquake (previous paragraph) and Obama’s executive orders to stay in power rather than have free elections.
“The goodman, if he had known, would have watched, and not suffered his house to be broken by the thief.” The house being broken supports the idea of an earthquake and Christ said if we don’t watch, He will come as a thief to us in the 3rd chapter of Revelation. It is this coming of Christ that could fit Jack Darnall’s dream, even this spring.
“The evil servant thinks his lord delays his coming and begins to smite fellow servants.” We see Islam smiting Christians, but Christ’s meaning could include the prophetic picture of a UN New World Order. The 24th chapter of Matthew ends with “Then shall the kingdom be like 10 virgins,” a parable that implies we are asleep with our lights out re the wedding parables that are poorly understood, but explained in an article here.
