Ch.9 42 Months
“Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.” Revelation 11:1-2
“And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
“And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:3-8
This is where YHWH once and for all gives humanity a narrowed choice. You no longer have the freedom of choosing to accept Christ in the comfort of your own home with no consequences. Now it is clear you will either accept Christ and be rejected from society, or you will receive the mark of the beast and be damned forever.
People hate hearing the phrase – “damned forever.” It’s so judgmental isn’t it? That’s what judges do, they make judgments. Now however, you cannot become a Christian without counting the cost. Those who become a Christian during the 1260 days, certainly will not be taking faith in Christ for granted as to be a Christian means that you are hated, rejected, hunted, and murdered.
In fact it is not just ‘you’ the authority will seek, but your entire family. Doesn’t matter if your son or daughter are five years old, or if you have a new born baby, or if your mother is in a nursing home – you will all be treated equally under Onpiov. All Christians will be considered the resistance, the insurgents, the manipulators of truth, idolaters, and responsible for everything that is bad in the world. Many in Judaism will love it. They will see their Moshiach as exacting revenge for all the centuries the Jews suffered under Christendom. For that is the Orthodox Moshiach, the conqueror, the avenger of Israel.
To be a Christian during this time means you cannot buy food, you cannot live in the city, you will be hunted and killed. Millions will watch as their familes are murdered for rejecting the mark of Moshiach. Parents will be unplugged from hospital rooms, sick children will die in parents arms, food, supply, or aid will be forbidden. Those who choose Christianity will starve and beg for food and mercy as they are laughed at, scorned, and tortured. God will make becoming a Christian a very hard choice during this time as the doors are rapidly closing for those to receive eternal life.
YHWH has given mankind over two thousand years to repent of their sins and receive salvation – the doorway is narrowing and will shut abruptly. Shortly in the future, becoming a Christian will be much more difficult with the realistic consequences of death for yourself, your children and wife, parents, brothers and sisters – all because you refuse to take the mark, or do what EVERYONE else is doing.
We are warned,
”And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” II Thessalonians 2:11-12
You, right now, can choose to believe in Christ and receive eternal life by simply asking Jesus Christ to save you and forgive you of all your sins. If you ask Christ to save you, He certainly will, and will come to you and make Himself known to you. No one is waiting outside your door or roaming the streets to kill Christians right now. There will come a day when you have a choice to receive Christ and receive eternal life, or be marked by the antichrist and be damned for eternity.
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:6-11
It doesn’t matter what you think you believe now, all peoples of all nations will fall under the spell of the antichrist, either by choice or forced coercion to be able to exist in society. A similar occurrence took place during the Partitions of Poland several hundred years ago. Jews and Poles by the 1830’s were no longer able to represent themselves in a Prussian court speaking either Polish or Yiddish.
In fact, you were required to speak German if you were to remain in Bavaria as a Jew, while under heavy taxation. Assimilation was all but absolute if you wished to reside in Prussia, purchase goods, occupy property, or sell your wares. This was simply a foreshadow of the beast and the true face of assimilation – selling your soul for monetary gain, mercantile means, to avoid persecution, and for your family not to starve.
More people will die in these 42 months than the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, the Black Plague, Bolshevik and Mao Revolution and all natural disasters of the centuries combined. Imagine this in a matter of months, the chaos and death toll will be overwhelming insanity! The magnitude of this breakdown in society is a truth of utmost horrific scope that we’ll all face if alive.
“Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
“And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If anyone has an ear, let him hear.” Revelation 13:1-9
All religions of the world: Christianity, Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, Judaism, Mormon, Polytheist, Satanist, Scientologist, Taoist – ALL will worship the beast whose name is not written within Βιβλίῳ ζωῆς, the Book of Life.
“And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:13-15
Onpiov’s minion, the false prophet who proclaims antichrist Messiah, convinces people to make an image to the beast. In ancient times this image was generally constructed in the form of a statue representing a deity as is well known. According to prophecy this image, or statue will be a living statue, or be able to speak and cause death to those who do not worship it when required. If you google the term “living statue” the search results are street artist’s, which if you have never seen are pretty amazing. Living statues are also for hire for events and themes, rather than the run of the mill fantastic street performer.
This beast image will be no street performer but more precisely a cross breed of Alexa echo / cybernetic AI. According to TechCrunch, voice assistance will reach 8 billion users by 2023, up from 2.5b users since 2018. Imagine years from now where the tech will be with advancements in AI and human looking robots. Universally known systems like Alexa, Siri, Google, and Echo record everything you say or do. There will be no privacy in the future as the ultimate goal is “seamless cross-platform experiences.”
All will be spoken to your TV, appliances, car, entry ways, retail purchases. We will all be tracked, recorded, advertised and numbered well beyond what social security and drivers license capabilities hoped for. Would it be so difficult for a talking machine to kill you in your home if you do not worship it when required?
“…the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
The worship requirement may be something simple and acceptable at first like saying, “Hail Caesar,” once a day; not too difficult or demanding right?
You would simply speak into your Echo as required, as you do now, but on threat of death. It would only take a few seconds and then you can go back to playing Fortnite, or watching the newly improved monday night Football. Your precious game time would never, ever, be interrupted – as long as you say the words, that you serve the beast Messiah.
When you go to get your coffee, buy McDonald’s, pickup prescription medication, you’ll scan your mark, as cash won’t exist. We are nearly to a cashless society today. It won’t be long before the dollar collapses and we switch completely to blockchain implants or 3D living tattoos as unveiled by MIT in 2017. It’s right around the corner folks. Within five years? As discussed in previous chapter, I believe not, as Christians are not nearly hated enough, yet, it will inevitably happen in stages as humanity marches towards Yom YHWH.
¾ of biblical prophecy has already been fulfilled.
“And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads,”
No one will be exempt, not the President of the United States, nor the Prime Minister of England. The beast Moshiach will require all to receive the mark for partaking in his economic utopia blanketing the earth.
Currently a small conglomerate of families own all banking operations in the world, it will be no difficult task once in power, that Onpiov will control all requirements necessary for enforcing this “tattoo” or whatever this mark entails.
American citizens currently have no control, zero, nada, zilch, of getting around using credit cards or paper dollars in society. We are one and all slave to it now. Once this system is instituted you either accept it dutifully or will simply be unable to purchase a home, toothpaste, or school notebooks for little Johnny.
“And that no man might buy or sell, except those that have the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).” Rev 13:17-18
Sobering, for those who can envision this Orwellian satan society soon to come.
“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, (1,260) clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devouring their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, (Jerusalem) which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, (Cable/Satellite TV, World News) and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. Revelation.” 11:2-13
Approximately 2,600 years ago, Daniel the prophet asked how long this would occur,
“Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, ‘My lord, what shall be the end of these things?'”
“And he said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.'” Daniel 12:8-11
So we have the time frame of the two witnesses and the abomination of desolation chronologically marching towards Yom YHWH or the end of the age :
- the 2 witnesses continue for 1,260 days & remnant of Israel protected – Revelation 11:2, Revelation 12:6
- Onpiov continues for 42 months, or 1,290 days – Daniel 12:11, Revelation 13:5
- 1 month after the 2 witnesses are defeated, Moshiach reign ends – 1290-1260 = 30 days
- 45 days after Onpiov ends, 1,335 days – 1,000 year reign of HaMashiach Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords
