The Four Winds
There can be no doubt that we live in exciting and unprecedented times. As we stated at the beginning of our study on The Four Winds, "We have come to the point in history when wondrous, even amazing, "earth shattering" current events are taking place and prophecies are being fulfilled at such an ever increasing rapid pace that it has become evident to those with eyes to see and ears to hear that we are approaching the final hour of temptation when the false messiah, the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, makes his "personal appearance" as Jesus Christ, claiming fulfillment of the 2nd advent."
In our study so far we have seen that Jesus Christ foretold us of the rise of nations and kingdoms in the marketplace (Mat. 24:7), which is today called Globalization and includes the unification of all currencies. The fulfillment of that prophecy is a clear sign that the Trumpeter of the 3rd Seal, which is the Black Horse of The Hidden Dynasty of the Economy, is sounding his alarm.
We have seen and continue to see "many coming in Christ's name", just as Jesus foretold, and they deceive the masses into believing that going to church and singing and praising Him and doing good deeds and tithing, etc. (none of which we condemn) is the totality of what Christianity is all about, while the people starve for the truth of His Word to be taught line by line and chapter by chapter. When they ask their pastors why they don't teach the Book of Revelation, for example, they are told, "There's really no need to! Christ is going to come and Rapture His church "out of here" before antichrist reigns!" And so we see that the Trumpeter of the 1st Seal, which is the White Horse of The Hidden Dynasty of Religion, is sounding his alarmand we are in the midst of the great famine of the end times (Amos 8:11)!
And because of the "famine" of truth and the fact that our people have not remained steadfast in our Father's Word, our people have been slowly anesthetized and indoctrinated by movies and television and magazines and other mass media into accepting lower and lower standards of morality, and they are confused about right and wrong and their freedoms are being completely stripped away while they remain in a "stupor". Many cannot see what is happening in our society, in our schools, in our institutions, and in our government as a result of allowing the ungodly to institute their liberal agendas. And a new set of morality, complete with perversity and behavior disgusting to our Father, has been set up, and those who do not accept it and speak out against it will be stung by a "politically correct scorpion". So "men's hearts [courage] are failing them" for fear of being stung. Yes, the Trumpeter of the 4th Seal, which is thePale Horse of The Hidden Dynasty of Education/Indoctrination is sounding his alarm.
Finally,the Trumpeter of the 2nd Seal, the Red Horse of Politics is sounding the alarm of the New World Order,complete with International Citizenship for all, International Law, and a World Court. Those who have been responsible for fomenting wars and conflicts are now fulfilling the first part of 1 Thes. 5:3 with their cry for peace.
Peace and safety, no more rumours [threats] of wars! It has come to pass. Next to come will be "sudden destruction", which is the death of the souls of men and women which will be caused by the soon coming "destroyer", the death angel, the son of perdition, Satan himself posing as Jesus Christ, the Messiah.He will sit in the temple of God and claim to be God, and there will be a GREAT falling away by Christians from the true God to worshipping this imposter. He's coming BEFORE Jesus Christ returns.1 Thes. 5:3
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
The subject being discussed is the 7th Trump, the return of Jesus Christ and our gathering back to Him (vs. 1). DO NOT let anyone tell you it can happen at any moment. IT CAN'T! Satan, the false messiah, must come FIRST at the sound of the 6th TRUMP.2 Thes. 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
So it is very, very simple. Just remember that the number 6 comes before the number 7. Here is what Satan will do:
When you see this abomination of desolation standing where he ought not, then know that the end of this flesh age is very, very near. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
So those Christians of this final generation of the Fig Tree must know (have knowledge in their foreheads) that the 1st Four Seals of Revelation chapter 6 are the Four Hidden Dynasties, which are the four powerful forces that can take captive and oppress men and women when given into the wrong hands and SET UP contrary to God's instructions contained in His Word.They are the powerful forces of Religion,Politics, Economics, and Education. Their "increased abusive activity" in the end times is symbolized by the sounding of the 1st Four Trumpets. And for a period of time, during the sounding of the 5th Trump, their collective sounding [strength] increases as the evil web of the New World Order entangles every nation and kindred and tongue on earth until truth is obscured (the sun is darkened) and there is an atmosphere of "anxiety" and "perplexity" (the air is darkened), all symbolized by the "smoke" released from the "bottomless pit", the home of the locusts and their king, Apollyon.
And where there is smoke there is fire, which is soon to come! We are currently in this period of the 5th Trump and NOW, just since Nov. 17, 1999, we have seen the fulfillment of the following verse:Rev. 9:2
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
You see, in Acts 2:19 Peter quotes from Joel regarding the LAST DAYS, these days you and I live in: Thus saith the Lord: "And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:"Luke 21:25
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
But notice the last part of this verse: "for the POWERS of heaven shall be shaken." HOW and WHEN will they be shaken"? They will be shaken when Jesus Christ sends the angel of the 6th Trump to the four angels holding back The Four Winds and tells them to LET THEM BLOW upon the earth! Rev. 9:13-14 "And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,  Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.Luke 21:26
Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
When the 6th Trump sounds, Satan appears with his angels, the horses of the locust army, who are cast out heaven with him (Rev. 12:7-9).Rev. 6:13
And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
Hmmm, with all the number "6" signs we have seen, do you suppose the 6th Trump should have sounded already? I mean if there is a DELAY in Four Winds Blowing, sooner or later we will have to pass the point at which the delay began, right?
So where are we now? We are in the 5th Trump, which has been extended to allow God's Elect time to fulfill Rev. 7:3 and educate the 144,000 and the multitudes along with those who are willing to "see and hear". Many people ask if the 144,000 comprise all of God's elect. The answer is, of course not! There are actually millions of them.
If you have read E. Raymond Capt's book, "The Great Pyramid Decoded", you will have no doubts that the Great Pyramid of Giza is the Bible in Stone. You also know that the capstone, which is also the corner stone was never placed atop the structure. Why? Because it was rejected by the builders. Take a look at the reverse side of Great Seal on the back of a one dollar bill and see the eye of the Almighty above the pyramid. Jesus Christ is that corner stone of the temple, symbolized in stone by the Great Pyramid of Giza. Let's read from Peter:
Do you hunger and thirst for truth that you can grow, or are you satisfied with church.1 Peter 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
Christ is our Rock.If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
And His children are "lively stones" who make up the "temple"! Of course the true temple is a spiritual house. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Christ is the chief corner stone. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Those who stumble at the Word are those who are disobedient in not studying His Word. Christ then becomes a stumbling block because they WILL WORSHIP the spurious messiah as their Jesus.Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
But the reason I bring this out is because you will find in E. Raymond's book that the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Bible in Stone, a structure containing millions of stones, was once covered with highly polished white granite stones, called casing stones. And guess what? There were 144,000 of them.
So when Rev. 7:3 is complete, and the 144,000 "lively stones" of the body of Christ are sealed, THEN the final events can take place leading up to where the chief corner stone that was rejected will come and temple will receive its Chief Corner Stone.
Meanwhile, The Four Winds are being held back, for the elect's sake, to seal those 144,000 and the multitudes who will come out of the Great Tribulation (Rev. 7:9-14) as a result of their teaching and the witnessing of God's Elect.
Can there be any doubt that these are the last days? Remember on Pentecost Day in Acts chapter two when ordinary blue collar workers were speaking the wonderful works of God and everyone from every nationality who was present heard them speak in their own native dialect? Let's pick it up in verse 12:
And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
It was "what they were saying" which prompted the comment about their being drunk! Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
It was only 9 o'clock in the morning and all the bars were closed (well, you get the point).Acts 2:14
But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
Peter said this is an example of what the prophet Joel was speaking of. Obviously Peter had read and studied and understood the book of Joel, and he understood the times he lived in too, because he was able to tell the people that they were witnessing a sample of what would happen in our generation, the final generation.But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
What exactly was to happen in the last days?
In the last days, the servants of God, the great, great,... grandchildren of God's people, both men and women alike, would see [which means understand] the visions of the prophets, like Ezekiel's "flying wheel", and Isaiah, and Jeremiah, and Daniel's visions, whose words were sealed until the time of the end. They would be able to "envision the dreams" of the prophets and others, even like Nebuchadnezzar, etc.And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
And they would begin to SEAL OTHERS, i.e. to teach His Word with the Spirit of Truth, and fulfill the later day commission of the sealing of Rev. 7!
To prophesy means to teach the prophets, not dream up "stuff"!Christ, through His Word, has foretold us ALL things. It is already written! Don't listen to the Biblically illiterate who dream up "visions" like flying away in a rapture before the king of Babylon shows up! Read His Word. It will happen as He says it will. Guaranteed!!!And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
And while his servants and handmaidens are planting seeds and teaching truth, there will be signs in the heaven above (wow, are there ever) and signs in the earth beneath.
Signs in blood? Blood is symbolic of flesh man. Yes, men's heart's would fail them for fear. That's a sign, isn't it? And how about the "signs" in the men of the "play" we discussed in yesterday's study? Are they not types, signs? Can you see the types? Are they not signs in blood [flesh men]? What are signs of fire, which is the Greek word "pur" meaning lightening? It is symbolic of "lightning, even striking events", the same as "earthquakes in divers places". Shakeups and unprecedented events shall and are occuring. And signs in "vapour" of smoke! Vapour is "atmis", like "mist" or atmosphere. Are you able to see the heavy "atmosphere of darkness" we have been discussing in these studies, which is from the "smoke" of the "bottomless pit", home of the bad guys? And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
All this is happening now, while The Four Winds are being held back. But the 6th Angel of the 6th Trump is standing by waiting for the Executive Order from the throne of God to sound the alarm and release The Four Winds.
Here is that order yet to be given:
Then shall Michael stand up and take charge and all hell from the bottomless pit shall be loosed and there shall be great tribulation, a time of great trouble:Rev. 9:13
And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
And Michael shall cast that old serpent of Genesis, the king of the locusts, the dragon himself, the Devil, Satan (Got it?), and his angels out of heaven to this earth and The Four Winds shall release their fury at the hand of these angels, who are the powerful colored horses in the war chariots in Zech. 6, the chiefs of the locust army of Rev. 9, who will direct the horsemen, the human foot soldiers who carry in their foreheads the mark of the beast.Daniel 12:1
And at that time 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 found written in the book.
The final battle is spiritual. It is not a flesh and blood war. Wars and rumours of wars are over and it will be world peace and prosperity under the leadership of one who claims to be the King of kings and the Lord of lords. And he will have the supernatural abilities to deceive the world into to believing that great lie!Rev. 12:7
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
But do not be alarmed and do not be fearful. For God's elect shall be delivered and shall NOT be harmed by Satan and his locust army. They may not "hurt" those who have the seal of God in their foreheads. All others are fair game to receive the rod of correction. Rev. 9:4 "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads." In fact God has complete control over the locust army, which He calls "His army". He allows and therefore takes full responsibility for sending it. He even gives specific "directions" to the colored horses [locusts] in Zech. 6.
And we just read in Daniel 12:
Will God's elect be here during the great tribulation of the spurious messiah? You bet they will. What will they be doing? They will be wearing the "Sealed" Gospel Armour of God and TAKING A STAND against the Dragon and his beast system.Dan. 12:1
.... and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear? Then know that The Four Winds are being held back for your sake. Why? To help teach and educate as many as possible before the time of trouble.Ephes. 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
May God Bless You in His Service.
