It is a benediction that we have probably heard many times, but do you understand its significance in these last days? The Lord does nothing without reason. Does the face of Jesus shine upon you? Have you looked up to Orion and recognized His countenance lifted up over you and literally shining down upon you? Have you appreciated His graciousness toward you?
Many believe that after the rapture, many will be saved in a second chance given during a time of tribulation. It is almost correct. The opportunity for the rapture already came, but out of love for our fellow man who was yet lost, God’s church prayed in unity that He would leave us here until all of His children are gathered in. This is the second chance! This is His graciousness toward you, to grant our request, that you may have peace and be spared from the “hour of temptation” without mercy, that is to follow. (See Revelation 3:10.)
The First Trumpet
November 22, 2016
We had already marked the date with expectation, not knowing exactly what would happen. Until then, God had not yet revealed the complementary trumpet cycle to us, but when He did, we were able to pinpoint the dates of each of the following trumpets, according to the pattern we were shown in Orion. For more than a month, we had them published on our website, so it was not without expectation that we watched what would happen.
The Second Trumpet
March 6, 2017
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; (Revelation 8:8)
Thankfully, the Lord gives guidance so that we can understand. He gave the word that if we studied it a little deeper, we would discover something astonishing! So what can we learn about the missiles that were launched? The rocket system that was used is named after North Korea’s largest mountain, a huge active volcano named Paektusan, or Mt. Paektu. Thus, “as it were,” the “great mountain burning with fire”, i.e. the great volcano, Paektusan, was by name, literally “cast into the sea!”
The young North Korean dictator has alarmed the world, but he is not the only one blowing the second trumpet! The same day, Donald Trump showed his determination to accomplish his intentions, however extreme they may be. The courts prevented his controversial travel ban from being implemented, but not taking “no” for an answer, he rewrote his executive order to dodge the courts, while still accomplishing his basic goals. His signing of it on the beginning day of the second trumpet, serves as a big warning that he will move forward with his plans despite any opposition. It is the sign of a dictator in the making.
The trumpets are sounding, and they are beginning right on schedule! Do you hear them? Trump has already pledged to stand behind Japan 100%, and his press secretary said the “administration is taking steps to enhance our ability to defend against North Korea’s ballistic missiles.” Soon—during the core time of the second trumpet, which lasts until July 20, 2017—we will see the remaining part of the text fulfill.
God’s graciousness is coming to an end, and the trumpets are warning of that. The impeccable timing of the events demonstrates that the clock is accurate, and not something to dismiss without considering that God may have revealed His secrets regarding the time, to His servants, the prophets.
