The Last Gasp of Satan’s Revolution

We have been fighting against the revolution being led by Satan for thousands of years, and it’s almost over. In fact, 2019 might have been the last good year for the rebels. With 2020 seeming to indicate the beginning of the end for our current civilization, now might be a good time to think about the timing of the Last Days.

After all, they are the Last Days of… what?

Human civilization?

Earth?

Humanity?

No, none of that.

The Last Days mark the beginning of the end of Satan’s power, the failure of his great rebellion. Unfortunately, the last gasp of this revolution will be hard on all of us.

I Met The Enemy On The Way To Church, In Taipei

It was a beautiful spring morning, on a Sunday in 2011. When I opened our front door to leave for church, I found our upstairs neighbor was standing there, having just reached the landing at our front door on his own way out of the building. We stood, looking at each other for what seemed like a long time, but could not have been more than a fraction of a second. He and his wife were dressed up and on their way to something important. He was as surprised to see me at that instant, as I was to see him.

It was a chance meeting that I doubt that I will ever forget. But, the significance of that moment has a backstory that needs some explanation.

I dragged Mrs. Little off to Israel in January of 2010. I had been gone for a little over three years, and I wanted to get back. God had opened the door, and I jumped through it as fast as I could. Unfortunately, that door closed a few months later, forcing us to leave.

We had a choice to make. After nine months in Israel, we could go back to America, or… someplace else. Our goal was to serve God and America didn’t seem to me to be the place for that. Call it a lack of imagination, if you wish, but I believe that God was pushing us towards Taiwan. Mrs. Little was born there. It seemed like a place that needed to hear the Gospel. And, we could always go back to the US, if we had chosen poorly. So, off we went.

It was early October when we arrived, and a good time to be in Taipei. Do not come to Taiwan until after the summer is over. October is still pretty warm in northern Taiwan, but not unbearable. It was perfect.

We wound up on the Neihu district of Taipei, not far from where the US embassy/consulate/whatever is currently located. There’s a story about that facility that I might get to another time. It’s… interesting.

The Neihu district was a great place to start our life in Taiwan. Right above us lived this delightful, older Taiwanese couple who always seemed so glad to see us. They had lived in America for many years before returning to Taipei, and they loved talking with us whenever we ran into each other. Another neighbor was a reliable gauge for air quality. Three sneezes was great. Five sneezes was about average, and seven or more of her thunderous blasts meant bad air.

Mrs. Little and I also discovered a great university outreach program a little over a month after we arrived in Taiwan, so we jumped right in. It was literally the best experience that I’d ever had, in doing evangelism. After years and years of banging my head against a wall in the Middle East and elsewhere, it all became so easy. It was such a blessing.

Of course, nothing is ever ‘easy’, and there are other stories to be told about our years in Taipei. But, during those first few months, I was still wondering about what God wanted us to do there.

Was this campus outreach all that God wanted us to do?

Well, for eight years, the answer was yes – in addition to starting Omega Shock and helping out in our local church.

But, who were these neighbors of ours?

I never did figure out who was sneezing so hard, every day. But, I was amused by her accuracy. And, we did get to know the neighbors living above us. They seemed like such a nice and interesting couple, but they never talked much about themselves. They knew who and what we were, but I couldn’t figure them out.

Then, on that fateful Sunday morning, I opened our door to leave for church, and there he stood, caught in that moment of time. Startled. Unprepared.

He had a tie on, which told me that he and his wife were going somewhere important. Mrs. Little and I were also going somewhere important, and I couldn’t think of any place more important on a Sunday morning than church.

Nothing in this life has ever, ever been more important than church. Nothing.

So, in the startled split second in which we stood looking at each other, I said the most logical thing on my mind:

“Going to church?”

In that moment of unprepared honesty, he said four words that spoke clearly about where he would be for eternity:

“I. don’t. think. so.”

The finality in his voice will forever represent the true nature of most of humanity. He knew who Jesus was. He knew what Jesus represented, and there was no way that our neighbor was ever going to have any part in what Jesus represented.

He was completely and utterly dead to the Gospel.

Now, God can raise the dead, if it is His will, so I know that it is possible for this man and his wife to accept Christ and the offer of eternal life. But, in that moment in time, his heart was more tightly closed than any prison you could name. He was dead to God, and it was exactly what he wanted.

Or, more accurately, he was in league with The Adversary and part of the rebellion.

Logic. Evidence. Proof. None of that mattered to him. He did not want God, and in that moment of time there was nothing that anyone could say that would change his mind. And, it was a perfect picture of every human being on this planet who refuses to follow Christ.

They know who Jesus is.

They know what Jesus represents.

They utterly reject all of that.

More importantly, there is no one on this planet who has not come into some kind of contact with the Gospel. Everyone knows who Jesus is. Everyone knows what the Gospel is. Every tongue and nation and people has been given the message in some way.

True, they might not have been personally invited to join themselves to Body of Christ. There might even be a few isolated groups who do not know about Jesus, but I sincerely doubt that there are very many of these people left, if any.

This doesn’t mean that it’s time to stop sharing the Gospel. On the contrary, we should probably redouble our efforts. The Enemy wants to shut our mouths, and that should encourage us to speak louder.

But, I find it interesting that we really do not understand our enemy. The Enemy.

Satan and his minions are literally the perfect opposition. The perfect rebels. They know who God is. They know where they are going when they die. They might cover over this fact with banal platitudes that obscure their eternal destiny. But, deep down, when confronted in a moment of startled honesty, the answer is always:

I. DON’T. THINK. SO.

The Last Gasp

So hopefully, you understand the deep, fundamental rebellion at the heart and in the hearts of all who reject Christ. It is so deep. So basic. So foundational, that most people do not understand it in themselves, let alone in others.

Now, think about this in terms of the Enemy, and in terms of our situation today. Look at your neighbors, your coworkers and even your relatives. They know what the truth is. It’s not a mystery to them. You might not have confronted them with it, but they still know what it is and where it can be found. But, like those wonderful neighbors in Taipei, they chose to reject it. They chose to be the rebellion. The rebellion against God.

Even if God should replace the sky with a vision of heaven, they would still reject Christ. There is literally nothing that you could say or do that would convince them to humble themselves and submit to God. Not even if friends and relatives returned from the dead to tell them to repent.

Think of the Children of Israel who wandered in the desert for 40 years. They had a perfect knowledge of God. They saw His power and miracles. They saw how much He cared for them, yet they refused to submit. The same goes for those who will live during the time of the Book of Revelation. They will know who God is. They will see Him. They will refuse to acknowledge Him.

Does any of that make sense?

Of course not. You wouldn’t be a follower of Christ, if it did. However which way you came to believe in Jesus, you saw the truth and wanted it. Whether you saw this as a rescue from eternal punishment, or not, does not matter. You saw the truth. You wanted it.

The rebels?

They see the truth, and hate it.

You could show them absolute proof that they were going to spend an eternity in Hell, and it would change nothing. They still would reject the offer of eternal life. If you have done any kind of evangelism, for long enough, you will have seen this for yourself.

It is truly heartbreaking to see.

I can’t tell you how many times I have stood, extending the offer of eternal life, a loving relationship with God and the membership in the family of God, only to see the offer rejected and rejected and rejected. It had nothing to do with me. It had everything to do with the utter rebellion in the hearts of men and women.

At a deep, fundamental level, they knew God and did not want Him. They were members of the Great Rebellion, and they weren’t going to give up their revolution against God, even if it meant eternal punishment.

Good News – The Rebellion Is Almost Over

The good news is that The Great Rebellion is almost over. Satan has done his very best to stop God and stop His people. And has failed. Miserably.

I know that it doesn’t seem like this great war is almost over. It actually feels like we are losing. It feels like the lies that surround us have only grown larger and more numerous. Worse, the followers of Satan are adding violence and threats of violence to their lies.

Yet, I say that victory is almost here?

That the war is almost over?

Yeah. That’s exactly what I’m saying.

In fact, I’m saying that violence and coercion are the ultimate indicators that the Enemy is losing the battle. Otherwise, they would continue their fight on the battleground of ideas. When the Pharisees (Paroshim) and Sadducees (Tsadokim) could not answer Jesus they killed Him. When they could not answer the followers of Jesus they killed them. When the Romans could not stop the growth of Christianity, they killed them. When the Muslims could not stop the Christians, they killed them. When every other group and people found that they could not stop the spread of the Gospel, their last step before final defeat was genocide.

Genocide is always the last battle, which is why the threat of genocide is a big sign that the war is almost over.

Here, let me show you what Revelation says about this:

7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, 8 but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. 11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. 12 Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!

 – Revelation 12:7-12 (ESV)

Notice how the people of God won:

The Blood of the Lamb

The Word of Their Testimony

The Willingness to Die

Satan could not stop the Blood of the Lamb. He and his minions could not stop the gospel. And then, by the very fact that they were willing to die for Christ, Satan lost the final battle.

However, I used ‘they’. I also used the ‘past tense’. And, there is truth in that, because The Blood was shed two thousand years ago. The Word has been spread throughout the world for two millennia. And, our brothers and sisters have given their lives for the truth and the gospel for all of that time. But, the events described in Revelation 12 are not finished.

The final genocide and our final victory has not yet come.

Yes, I know. It’s hard to think of being murdered as a victory. And, some of us have escaped the need to go through that. I’ve heard that dying of old age beats dying any other way. But, if dying for Christ is the best way to go, then I guess that’s how it needs to be.

However, my goal is to serve God for as long as I can, the best that I can. Since Mrs. Little feels the same way, I am truly blessed.

When Is The End?

But, I can see that you have a few questions. So, let’s deal with those:

When does the battle in heaven happen?

When does Satan fall to earth?

When does the genocide begin?

To borrow the classic line from Tevye of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’:

I’ll tell you…

…I don’t know.

But, I can point out a few things that might narrow the answer down a bit for you.

First, remember that the Book of Revelation was written AFTER AD 70. Yeah, I know. The Preterists claim that this isn’t so, but we have far too many historical documents that say otherwise.

Second, the fall of Satan to earth is an event, with a definitive result. Michael and the angels fight in heaven. Satan loses and is thrown to earth. And, the result is woe for those still living on the earth.

Third, there are subsequent events that are also definitive and also haven’t happened – at least, not yet. Notice the word ‘when’, as in WHEN Satan finds himself thrown to earth.

What does he do afterwards?

He persecutes the woman who gave birth to the child. He tries to kill her, but she escapes.

Has that happened yet?

No, I don’t think so – especially since the period of time described for her protection is “time, times and half of a time,” and that does not seem to fit anything that we have seen. But, it DOES seem to fit what the Antichrist will try to do in the future, as well as how long he will rule the earth.

Fourth, the vision does not end with the last verse of chapter twelve. Of course, the whole Book of Revelation seems to be one vision, so this fourth point is weaker than the previous three. But, it seems that the rise of The Beast is a part of the events of chapter 12.

For instance, we know that ten horns need to give their power to the Antichrist. And, the ten horns in chapter 13 appear to be the same ten horns that Daniel talks about. So, the rise of the ten kings without a kingdom seems to be necessary before we see Satan fall to earth and possess the Antichrist.

Wait.

Does Satan need to fall to earth first, before he takes control of the Antichrist?

I think so. I mean, THE ANTICHRIST doesn’t seem to get his ‘capital letters’ until after Satan takes control. Notice that Judas Iscariot didn’t make that final betrayal of Christ until after Satan possessed him. In the same way, the Antichrist might not declare himself to be god, until after Satan takes possession of him.

We’ll see what happens.

There are mysteries within mysteries in regard to the coming of the Antichrist. But, with the elites tearing up their system and even threatening us with violence, it should be clear that Satan sees that he is on the verge of losing everything. It is a big sign that the day of victory is close, but it’s also a sign that life for followers of Christ is about to get harder and harder.

A crown awaits for all who persevere to the end.

Where The Tribulation Begins In The Book Of Revelation

One part of the reason why I wrote about The Last Gasp of Satan’s Revolution is due to a comment, from a reader, asking some important questions:

Are the events of Revelation Chronological?

If not, why is it not chronological?

Where does the Bible say the “Great Tribulation” begins and ends?

I’m afraid that I – like many people – jumped at the chance to answer a question that I’ve been thinking about, and did not properly address her other questions. So, this is my chance to fix that. Unfortunately, since this is a huge topic, I won’t be able to completely answer all the points that rise out of these questions.

What I can do is give something of an answer and maybe help you get started on tracking down the answers for yourself. Whatever you might think of my understanding of Revelation, that doesn’t change your own responsibility to seek the direction of the Holy Spirit as you look into these issues yourself.

The Three Questions

But, let’s get to the three questions.

QUESTION ONE: Are the events of Revelation Chronological?

QUICK ANSWER: No. (But, partly Yes.)

LONGER ANSWER: John the Apostle seems to have experienced the Book of Revelation as a single vision. At least, that is how it is presented to us. Having said that, The Book of Revelation is made up of 20 individual segments, that are chronological WITHIN each vision segment. And, it’s clear that some segments overlap each other. Some seem to point to events that occur before those described before them. But, I get into that later.

NOTE: The Book of Revelation was not divided into chapters until more than a thousand years after it was written.

Anyway, I did a quick overview of Revelation and identified what I believe to be the individual segments:

ONE: Revelation 1 to 3

TWO: Revelation 4 to 9

THREE (Revelation 10 to 11) seems to be an ‘intermission’.

TWO actually ends at the end of Revelation 11

FOUR and FIVE: Revelation 12

SIX and SEVEN: Revelation 13

EIGHT to TEN: Revelation 14

ELEVEN: Revelation 15

TWELVE: Revelation 16

THIRTEEN: Revelation 17

FOURTEEN: Revelation 18

FIFTEEN to SEVENTEEN: Revelation 19

EIGHTEEN: Revelation 20

NINETEEN: Revelation 21 to Revelation 22 (first part)

TWENTY: Revelation 22 (last part)

That was a quick overview. Let me know if I miscounted in any way. I am happy to correct errors, especially when it comes to the Book of Revelation.

QUESTION TWO: If not, why is it not chronological?

One example of why Revelation cannot be perfectly chronological is that Revelation 10:7 actually jumps ahead and points to the last part of Revelation 11. Another example are the two sections in Revelation 12 – which seem to overlap each other. Chapter 12 appears to be where the Antichrist rises, yet the Beast rises in Chapter 13. Also, the two beasts in Revelation also would seem to overlap each other in their rise. And, there are other examples of what appears to be a clear back and forth in time, in the rest of the Book of Revelation.

Unfortunately, getting the timing wrong is a very, very serious thing. Changing the timing of Revelation changes the meaning of Revelation. And, that is a very serious and scary thing to do, because of two vital verses given to us in the last chapter:

18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

 – Revelation 22:18-19 (ESV)

Don’t add and don’t subtract from Revelation. Just. Don’t. Do. It.

It is a dangerous game that Pretribbers and Preterists have been playing. Pretribbers add to the Book of Revelation, and it makes sense that they would be caught by the events described. But, Preterists are in far greater danger, since they take away from the Book of Revelation, and condemn all who follow them to being caught by the Antichrist and then suffering for eternity. When the Antichrist proclaims himself to be god, the Preterists will welcome him.

I am horrified by the though of being tricked into following the Antichrist.

QUESTION THREE: Where does the Bible say the “Great Tribulation” begins and ends?

I’ve been wondering about this question for many years, so it really stuck out to me. And, I don’t think that I have ever been able to come to a conclusive answer. But, a few things have happened fairly recently that made me realize that we might be able to see a clearer picture of where the answer is.

My first epiphany was back before 2014. I had begun to see the connection between Ezekiel 38-39, Isaiah 30 and Zechariah 12-13. That realization led to a book, Ezekiel’s Fire.

My second inspiration came when I realized that people didn’t know when the salvation of Israel would occur. Nor did they understand the timing of Gog and Magog and Ezekiel’s Fire. They didn’t understand when any of that was going to happen, so I dove into another project that became When Jacob Returns. I have been doing an in-depth revision of that book for a few of months already, and I hope (Lord willing) to be finished before the end of 2020.

My third and most recent flash of understanding occurred when I started hearing about something called a Micronova, I now am beginning to realize that Ezekiel’s Fire is not a Solar Flare, but a Micronova. The second one that Earth might have experienced. (The first might have been during the Great Flood.) This means that Ezekiel’s Fire gets a revision, too. (Probably in 2021)

Then, as I answered the reader’s question, something clicked. And that ‘click’ might have answered another question that I had been puzzling over for decades:

How could the sky vanish in Revelation 6 but reappear in Revelation 8?

That sounds like the aftereffect of a micronova. All the material blasted away by from the sun, into the solar system, would eventually cool and obscure the stars. But, I’m getting ahead of myself.

Where The Great Tribulation Begins

The timing of the Book of Revelation has been a mystery for almost two thousand years. And, few Christians have wanted to talk about this book because so much of it is so mysterious. And, I believe that God obscured some of this vision until the time was right – which is actually a theme that runs through the whole Bible. Understanding comes at the right time and place, for those who are willing to submit to what God says. Those who are not willing… well …they are always the ones to suffer the consequences. (Just as when Jesus came the first time.)

Furthermore, there are obvious symbols involved in this vision, so we know that not everything is completely literal. The question is… how much is symbolic, and how much isn’t? And, with the question of symbolism, comes the question of chronology.

It is clear that the seals come one after another. (Although, they do not need to end when the next seal begins.) And, there is a pause between seal six and seven.

It is clear that the trumpets come one after another.

It is clear that the vials/bowls come one after another.

It is clear that the order of events 1) seals then 2) trumpets then 3) vials/bowls.

Woven around this is the story of the Antichrist, the Great Tribulation, The Beast, The Great Whore, and at the end… the Millennium. The problem is that Revelation doesn’t seem to say the ‘Great Tribulation’, except in Revelation 7, which doesn’t seem to fit.

How can The Great Tribulation happen before Revelation 7, but seems to also be described in Revelation 12?

Have you noticed that it’s hard to say where to place the Antichrist in context with the seals and trumpets?

Anyone who claims that they KNOW is probably wrong. And, I fully admit to probably being wrong myself. Unfortunately, human beings do not like to say that they do not understand. We either stay quiet on the subject, or engage in outrageous speculation.

Remember that God warned us about ‘speculating’ in Revelation 22:18-19. Those of us who have at least some understanding of God should know how dangerous speculation can be.

Having said that, there are a few observations that we can make, that hopefully will not block the understanding that the Holy Spirit will one day give us, when the time is right. So, let me offer what I believe to be the five basic time periods within the prophecy of Revelation:

The preparation.

The tribulation.

The wrath.

The millennial reign.

The end.

The question is…

where do we place the Antichrist in this?

Of course, WE don’t. God does that. But, it seems that many have been placing themselves in the place of God.

Remember one thing that’s important. Satan does not possess the Antichrist until AFTER he loses the war in heaven (Revelation 12). Assuming that I’m getting all this right, Satan is not cast down to earth, until AFTER he loses the heavenly war. And, I find it interesting that this war in heaven is won for this reason:

And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

– Revelation 12:11 (ESV)

Because we were willing to sacrifice our lives, Satan and his angels were defeated.

How many patriot christians understand that?

Satan is defeated by the sacrifice of Jesus and by our willingness to die for Him. It seems to me that a lot of ‘patriot christians’ are less than willing to die for Christ, and since they do not appear to be a part of the victory over Satan, they seem like they will one day be a part of the problem. And yes, most patriot christians seem to be Preterists.

Okay, back to the point.

So, is Satan cast down to earth during the seals?

Or, during the trumpets?

But Wait… There’s More

What happens in between the sixth seal and the seventh-and-last seal?

Ah yes, the marking of the 144,000 Israelis.

Yes. Israelis.

These are the descendants of Jacob, and cannot be sealed until AFTER the children of Jacob have returned to God. And yes, the word is A-F-T-E-R. Furthermore, these special children of Jacob are a subset of the larger group of Israelis who become followers of God. These 144 thousand Israelis MUST be a fraction of the larger body of believers who are also the children of Jacob.

It gets even MORE interesting when you look at the 144,000 in Revelation 14:

It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb,

 – Revelation 14:4 (ESV)

Unless you are going to claim that these are a DIFFERENT 144,000, these Israelis are young men and virgins. Think about how small a percentage this group would represent.

To get that many male, Israeli virgins, you would have to have something like two million Israelis become followers of Christ. That’s a lot of Israelis. More importantly, two million Israelis sounds a lot like the fulfillment of the prophesied return of Jacob to God.

This Great Return of Jacob is a vital marker in the discussion of the Last Days. The Return of Jacob is a sign, and people are NOT paying attention to this sign because they believe that Jacob will not return until AFTER the Antichrist is defeated – which is deeply incorrect.

Jacob MUST Return BEFORE Satan is cast down to earth.

Not after!

This is the point of my book, that I am in the process of revising. When Jacob Returns is important, and we are not paying attention. This needs to stop.

The Micronova

Fortunately, I had reached this point in answering the comment when the Taiwan Trash Truck was scheduled to come by, and there was a bag of stuff to get rid of. So, I went down to wait. That wait gave me a chance to think a bit more as I looked at the night sky. And, something occurred to me during that wait. Notice this verse:

12 When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. 14 The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

– Revelation 6:12-14

Do the stars disappear?

No, because we see them again, later in Revelation 8.

So, what is happening?

A micronova.

The Bible doesn’t say that exactly, but we know a few things about micronovae. In a micronova, the outer layer of a star explodes outward. And, that outer layer is full of all kinds of material that – when it cools down – will obscure our ability to see past it. Eventually, it will sweep past the earth, dissipate and allow the light of the stars to appear again. The main thing is that this micronova will happen at the same time as Isaiah 30, Ezekiel 38-39 and Zechariah 12. I call it Ezekiel’s Fire, and it will be terrifying to the elites. It will also be an incredible moment in time for those of us who survive.

But… um …survival will be a challenge. But less of a challenge, if we are prepared.

By the way, after I told Mrs. Little about my eureka moment concerning Revelation 6:14, her response was: “You should take the trash out more often.” That, my friends, is the kind of woman that I love being married to.

When The Great Tribulation Begins – A Conundrum

So, I believe that the salvation of Israel begins in Revelation 6:12. However, that does not tell us when the Great Tribulation begins. When we get to Revelation 7, we see the command to not harm the earth (the trumpets?) until the 144,000 Israelis are sealed, and we also see a great multitude that is without number. That multitude is described like this:

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

 – Revelation 7:9 (ESV)

…“These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 – Revelation 7:14(b) (ESV)

That verse says the words ‘The Great Tribulation’. The verse refers to people who experienced The Great Tribulation. They have palm branches in their hands. Yet, in Revelation 15, we see this:

And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.

 – Revelation 15:2 (ESV)

Um… that looks like a different group than the one described in Revelation 7. Both groups were victorious. But, the group in Revelation 7 seems to be more general than the group in Revelation 15.

What’s the difference?

I’m not completely certain. But, The Great Tribulation in Revelation 7 seems to be different than what was experienced in Revelation 15.

Wait, I just remembered this passage from chapter six:

9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. 10 They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.

 – Revelation 6:9-11 (ESV)

That group is BEFORE the other two that we talked about, and were not killed by the Antichrist. The group in chapter seven does not say that they were murdered. It just says that they had their robes washed white. The group in chapter 15 indicates that they were killed by the Antichrist.

So, when does the Great Tribulation by the Antichrist begin?

The Difficult Chronology Of Revelation

Well, the description of that event seems to happen in Revelation 12. That seems to indicate that the Great Tribulation begins there and NOT in Revelation 6.

This brings us back to the issue of chronology. Because Revelation clearly seems to have elements that are not in chronological order

…can we honestly say that Revelation 12 happens AFTER the Seventh Trumpet in Revelation 11?

I honestly don’t think so. Especially since it seems that the 144,000 sealed in Revelation 7, also appear in Revelation 14. And, we have other mismatches. However, I find that I’m left with more questions than answers.

How much time elapses between seal six and seal seven?

Does the Antichrist rise during the seventh seal?

Does he rise during the first trumpet?

When do the ten kings-without-a-kingdom rise?

Is the first seal about the rise of the system of these ten kings?

Has the first seal already been opened?

Or, will the first seal be opened soon?

How would we know?

Okay, this turned out to be a lot longer than expected. Hopefully, you will find material here that is thought provoking. Please share your own thoughts and questions in the comment section below.

The Second Reason For This Post – Greg Hunter’s Weekly News Wrapup

When I said, “One part of the reason why I wrote about The Last Gasp of Satan’s Revolution is due to a comment, from a reader,” that implied that there was at least a second reason. Here’s that second reason.

Before starting the final bit of writing for Friday, I decided to watch this video:

Greg Hunter – Weekly News Wrap-Up 9.25.2020

That pounded home the message of the utter rebellion that we are seeing right now. These people not only do not care about what the truth is, they are in full attack against the truth.

That brought the rebellion of Satan and his followers front and center. In sharp contrast. And, with what I had already written in response to that reader’s question, talking about the end of Satan’s rebellion against God was natural.

The shamelessness of these rebels is truly amazing. It’s shocking. I can hardly believe what I’m seeing, and it’s clear that Greg Hunter feels the same way.

And, the genocide that they will eventually inflict upon us… well …it will be our last battle. And we will win through the sacrifice of our lives.

This good thing is that we have some time before this happens.

The Catastrophe Cycle

Unfortunately, something will happen between now and the coming of the Antichrist. I call it Ezekiel’s Fire. Ben Davidson of Suspicious0bservers calls it the Cosmic Disaster. And, the following is a YouTube playlist of the 17 videos that describe the disaster that is coming:

 

Earth Catastrophe Cycle | 2020 & Beyond

It is clear that this isn’t the first time that it’s happened. There is way too much glass on the moon not to see that it has happened before. The question is…

When?

I believe that the previous Cosmic Disaster happened at the Great Flood. The description of water bursting out of the earth and falling out of the sky, is a sign of a micronova. And the tectonic instability that created the mountains afterwards, is completely in line with such a massive cataclysm.

And, the guy who created those videos?

Not a Christian

And, that adds something extra to this discussion. Ben Davidson is clearly not trying to impose a Bible-centric message. And since he doesn’t have a religious agenda that he’s trying to force on his listeners, this adds authenticity to what he’s saying.

We are due for a micronova, and it will be really, really bad.

The fact that his description fits Ezekiel’s Fire should make you sit up and pay attention. Lord willing, I will finish the update of that book, before it happens.

You really need to prepare for what’s coming.

  1. John I am looking for a new Bible, which version do you would you say is best? When sending you a gift each month, what would be a good amount? I asks both in true seniority. I love your program, and learn much from you. Robert Green

    • Hi Robert,

      After years of reading through the Bible, every year, using the KJV, I’m switching to the ESV. I hate doing that. I enjoy the wording of the KJV, but the idea that the Roman Catholic church had a hand in that translation has now made me question too many verses. And, I’m finding too many errors.

      The problem is that I have not been able to check the English Standard Version as well as I would like. But, it has often been right, when the KJV was wrong. So, I’m making the switch. Having said that, the NET also seems to be good, but the footnotes for that Bible are terrible. Bible publishers have made a lot of money printing Bibles, and corrupted Bibles sell better than uncorrupted Bibles.

      By the way, Jay Green also made a translation called the LITV (aka, KJ3 and KJV3) in the ’80s. I cannot remember if I have ever identified any mistakes that he made, but I have great respect for his effort. And, what Bible publishers tried to do to him was evil.

      I’m not sure how you are reading your Bible, but I like the One Year Bible a lot. The way that they take you through the Bible is excellent and will give you a great overview of what the words of God actually say.

      As for donations, I don’t know what to say. This is the first time that I’ve done this, and I have yet to figure out what a good number is. If every Shock Letter subscriber gave 50 cents a month, I would not need the donation button. But, as with anything important, it will always be the tiny minority who bear the greatest burden.

      May God bless you for your desire to understand His words, and to contribute to this ministry, Robert. May what I write and say be always in accordance with the truth.

      Yours in Christ,

  2. Hi John,
    just out of the blue, it seems we have a new war – Azerbaijan vs. Armenia. The ominous thing is that there are also Turkey, Iran, Russia positioned behind both sides of this conflict.
    And… the media, at least in my country, behave like nothing is happening.
    Well, we’ll see.
    Yours in Christ

  3. Hi John,
    Just found your site last week and have been reading for hours. Thank you for all your time and effort.
    Have you ever explored the idea of Revelation being written in a chiastic structure? I think this may help explain why it can be so hard to explain as our modern Western minds don’t naturally think in such a structure. I’m not sure how this helps to pinpoint the timing of events but I think it may explain why some events seem “out of order” to us.
    As for the rebellion finally coming to an end: “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” Romans 16:20
    Shalom!

    • Hi Karen,

      Welcome to Omega Shock. The goal is to provide truth, whatever the cost. So, you will find information and analysis that you will not like. I can almost guarantee it. But, everything that I say is based upon fundamentals. So, feel free to ask me tough questions. I don’t always communicate my points well, and helping you understand what is happening is important.

      And no, I do not consider myself to be right, and I’m always looking to be proven wrong. In fact, I’m hoping that someone will. What’s coming is going to be very, very bad.

      Okay, you used a literary term, ‘chiastic structure’, for how Revelation is organized. Some parts might be. But, I shrink from applying human ideas to what God is doing with the Book of Revelation. Theologians have been corrupting the Bible with humanistic ideas for millennia, and it is destroying our churches – along with our ability to understand the Last Days.

      I look forward to the day of Satan’s defeat, but I shudder at what happens between now and then.

      Thanks, Karen!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
