The Seven Vials

       At the coming of the Sons of God the earth will be enveloped in perpetual evil. It will be the pinnacle of Adam’s captivity. The depravity of carnal men will have peaked as a dark and virulent wave.

       At that time, men will be enslaved to the false hope of human politics. They have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. They will thirst for the soured milk of organized religion. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. All will feed their addictions for lust and temporal gain. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people.

       That day will be as it was in the time of Noah, with the races of men tangled in intermarriage. As it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

       As in the days of Sodom, homosexuals will prowl the streets with diseased and militant demands. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

       Discerning the dreadful events about to unfold, the earth will mourn in its orbit. I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.

       There will be no repentance in man. Rather, lawlessness will be rampant. Error will be accepted as truth, and iniquity will be justified by a feigned spirituality. Few of the mortals will understand their times, for a contrite heart will be rare, and a personal friendship with God as a myth from a bygone age. The wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand.

       Sports and entertainment will appease the pent-up fury of a world gone mad. This will be a time of vanity, violence, and desecration, such as never was. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

       Entering this world of evil, as alighting near a funnel cloud, the Sons of God, as insurgents, will appear on the earth. It will be a time when few looked for them. It will be a day when they were not expected. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

       The people of earth will be busy with their usual frenzy, to bring about their errant aims. For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

       Abruptly and without warning the Sons of God will arrive, in the midst of the darkness, as furious lightning on a black and stormy night. The day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 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.

       Arriving on the earth, the Sons of God will spread among the governments of man. They will invade the global alliance of the New World Order, entering the various parliaments and councils as a mighty prophet might stride into an enemy camp. Cool as veteran commanders they will pour upon mortals the liquid judgment of God. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

       It will be like the days of Gideon, when the adversaries covered the land as a sea of grasshoppers. When all appears lost, when the foes seem insurmountable, the Sons of God will arrive. The LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand.

       They will come as the avengers of blood, the kinsman-redeemers of Adam. They come with a mission to liberate, and to claim the blood debt of their clan. For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. As an army from the rising sun they will redress the grievance of Eden. The LORD sends your brave army from Zion; charge up to the breast of your foes! Your Forces are ready to-day, your Army in beautiful pomp, More than dew-drops that come from the breast of the Dawn! Psalms 110:2,3 (Fenton).

       With their weapons at the ready the Sons will cry against the powers of evil, and demand the release of mankind. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me ... to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God. They will assemble in battle array, with tumult and power, speaking war to the enemies of God. The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

       The enemies of God are fear, doubt, disbelief, self-centeredness, rebellion, and idolatry. These are to be eradicated from the earth. Unfortunately, these qualities live in the unregenerate. They are propagated by the unbelieving, and even flourish in the chosen people of Israel, as a cancer feeds upon its host. Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? ... This is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth. ... For they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law. Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle.

       There are no more wicked people on earth, than those who have repudiated God in their courts, removed him from their schools, rejoiced in perversion, murdered their own children, and turned the worship of God into big business. These are the people of America, the British commonwealth, and western Europe. All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us. When the Sons of God come to cleanse the earth, they will begin with the nations of Anglo-Saxon Israel. I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through. Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.

       Many times throughout their history the Israelites have turned to perversion. And each time, God has moved against them with malice, sold them to their enemies, and destroyed them in battle.

       The nations of Israel were ordained for truth, but they have turned to folly. They should have remained humble before God, but they are ungrateful. They should have been altruistic, but they are narcissistic. They should have been God-centered, but they forgot. They should have been honest and moral, but they are obsessed with lies and lust. They should have become a nation of individuals, thriving in intimate communion with God. But instead they stripped for the heathen and accepted their values.

       Instead of being examples of righteousness, the Israelites are mostly selfish, ignorant of God, and immoral. They are mired in their five-fold captivity. They destroy their own families. They are as a mouse in the paws of evil, wards of happenstance, forgetful hearers, feathers in the wind, seekers of fortune, lovers of false religion, sympathetic to perverts, and despisers of the One True God.

       The cleansing of earth will begin, with the idolaters of Israel. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God. When the Body of Christ comes to power, they will slay their own kinsmen and friends. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? ... What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: and that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory?

       On a smaller scale this has happened before. While Moses was alone on the mount receiving the commandments of God, the people of Israel began to worship a golden calf. When Moses returned, God ordered him to kill all the idolaters. And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

       Another example was in the days of Phinehas. While Israel teetered with the delights of heathenism, Phinehas became zealous for God and rose up to save his people. To accomplish this, he slew the leaders of the opposition. When Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand; and he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly.

       So also, when the Body of Christ receives the commission of God, they will be ordered to destroy the irreverent from amongst the nations of Israel. This judgment will bring an end to the ruinous plague of evil that is now desecrating the earth. By deliverance through war, the Body of Christ will cleanse the planet and establish their everlasting priesthood. Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed. And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.

       In Ezekiel, chapters 8 & 9, the nations of modern Israel are described as purveyors of evil. The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.

       God is not happy about this. He is disheartened by their ever increasing iniquity. Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger. Fortunately, God loves them too much to allow this kind of behavior to continue. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

       God intends to endure the failure of the Adamic race for a period of just six thousand years. At the end of that time, at the start of the Millennium, he plans to eradicate evil from the earth.

       In Ezekiel 9:2, six men are dispatched from heaven to accomplish this. These six men represent the Body of Christ, born out from the six thousand years of Adam’s captivity on earth. Behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.

       The man clothed in linen represents Jesus Christ. At the end of this dispensation he will search all men and mark those that have a heart for God. Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. With this selection complete, the Sons of God will dispense their Father’s fury and destroy the minions of evil. Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary.

       According to God, the arrival of his Sons will be a day of judgment and trauma.As for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head. And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.

       The Body of Christ will appear as a ruinous terror to the evil inhabitants of earth. Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: that say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! This is the Day of the Lord it is an awesome cataclysm of destruction. Woe to you, wishing for the Day of the LORD! It will be darkness and not Light! As a man flying from the presence of a lion, and a bear meets him, or entering a house, and laying his hand on the wall, and a serpent bites, the Day of the LORD will be Darkness and not Light, and Blackness and without splendour! Amos 5:18-20 (Fenton).

       The coming of the Sons of God will not be Rapture or streets of gold. To the contrary they will come upon the earth as a day of devastation. Then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn. While the masses of Israel are prostrate in failure, the Sons of God will arrive to cleanse the world. Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

       When the seventh trumpet sounds in Revelation 11:15, the firstborn Sons of God will arise. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. They come with a mission of dire purpose. The nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

       In Revelation chapters 15 & 16, these Sons are symbolized by the “angels” with the seven vials. These celestial beings arise just after the seven trumpets, and come out from the temple of God. After that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: and the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues.

       In the style of the dedication of Solomon’s temple, these “angels” are infused with the glory of God. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power. These angels represent the Body of Christ. They are the living temple of God. Their arrival signals the completion of God’s firstborn Sons. After their glorification, the process of begetting additional Sons will cease for a thousand years. And no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

       In the Revelation, twice these “angels” proclaim themselves to be the Sons of God, the seed of Israel, the brothers of the apostle John (Rev. 19:10 & 22:9). And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book.

       Besides their own statement, these seven angels wear the golden belt, the unfailing emblem of the Sons of God. The seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

       This golden belt (girdle) is found elsewhere only in Daniel 10:5 and Revelation 1:13. In every occurrence of the golden belt, it symbolizes the corporate, many-membered Body of Christ. I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. Revelation 1:12,13.

       The golden belt is the badge of a glorified Son of God. It is the Biblical symbol of divine power. By the rod of His mouth He will conquer the world, and its Wickedness slay by the breath of His lips. For Righteousness will be the belt of His waist, and the Truth shall engirdle His robe! Isaiah 11:4,5 (Fenton).

       This golden belt represents a state of being. It is a spiritual possession that exceeds every form of wealth in the created realm. Ye may procure neither gold, nor silver, nor copper, for your belts. Matthew 10:9 (Emphasized). It is an infinite power derived from the life and character of divinity. It is the product of conception and birth. It is the medallion of victory that engirdles the firstborn Sons of God. I am the LIFE and none beside, except MYSELF there is no GOD; though you knew not, I fixed your belt! To teach them from the rising-sun, and from where evening fades away, that I am LIFE, and none beside! Isaiah 45:5,6 (Fenton)

       Symbolized by the seven angels, the Body of Christ will bring God’s judgments to earth. These final judgments are the seven vials of Revelation 15-16. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. Their seventh and last vial will accomplish the destruction of “Babylon,” at the battle of Armageddon. And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

       In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, related in Daniel 2:31, there was a small stone that attacked the final world power of man. This small stone was “made without hands” - it was begotten, not created. This stone initiated the attack against the kingdom of the “Ten Toes,” which are the “Ten Horns” of Revelation 17:12, the New World Order. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. This small stone is the corporate Body of Christ, and with the seven vials, they will initiate the attack to reverse the captivities of man.

       Arriving in fury, the Sons of God will pour judgment upon the errant character of man, the fallen carnal nature. The first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

       The “earth” represents the Adamic nature of man. For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. After the first vial, the deeds of carnal men will no longer be free of consequence. Iniquity will no longer be rewarded with pleasure. Instead, the works of evil will blossom into ulcerated sores, bringing pain, remorse, and anguish.

       Those who hold the values of the world, the self-indulgence of Adam, the lust for earthly treasure, the perversion of Sodom, will suffer immediate retribution. Their thoughts and deeds will bring upon themselves a misery of physical and spiritual affliction. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day! For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

       While the multitudes of earth are afflicted in their own wickedness, the Sons of God will unravel the economic structure of the world. The second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

       The sea represents commerce and trade, the vehicle of worldly wealth. Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea. The economics of the world, with its selfishness and usury, will crash as waves on the rocks. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

       While reeling in the remorseful ruin of global depression, the arrogant structure of Modern Christianity will be brought to her end. The third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

       Fountains and rivers represent religion, the flowing streams of spiritual energy. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. With the third vial, the doctrines of Modern Christianity will become even more perverse, embracing the ethics of the wicked. Those who imbibe these teachings at Sunday’s church will become as they who drink the blood of a dead man.

       Organized Christianity has slain the people of God, first with torture, and now with counterfeit doctrines. They have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. When the world monetary system fails, religious donations will cease. Since the institutions of Modern Christianity are supported by man and not by God, these proud charlatans will then collapse under their own weight. The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low.

       In the midst of this worldwide havoc, the desires of man will be made hateful and poisonous, their works twisted into a greater depravity. The fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God.

       Since the dawn of time, the heathen have worshipped the sun. To them, it is the visible source of vitality, growth, and prosperity. Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image ... and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them.

       The fourth vial will attack those things idolized by man, and these are the works of their hands. The source of their prosperity will become a source of pain. Their riches will become worthless. Their ideas will turn against them, bringing torment rather than gratification. Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from the house of our God?

       With this catastrophic melt down of the human race, Satan’s puppet government will begin to self-destruct. The fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

       This “beast” is the last world empire of man, the kingdom of the Ten Horns. This will be a global alliance of power, placing the resources of all, into the hands of a few. I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

       Today this young monster already prowls the earth as the United Nations. Soon it will grow up to become the infamous New World Order. The ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

       When this political monster tastes of the fifth vial, their wisdom will turn rancid, their plans will flounder, they will be consumed in frustration, and their Satanic kingdom will fall into chaos. The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

       While the New World Order struggles with calamities beyond their control, the Sons of God will dry up the spiritual powers that have enslaved mankind for six thousand years. Then the sixth [angel] emptied his vial upon the mighty river Euphrates: and its water was dried up, so that a road might be prepared for the kings from the rising sun. Revelation 16:12 (Fenton).

       The Euphrates river was home to both Assyria and Babylon, the powers that conquered Israel and Judah. It represents the spirit forces that have enslaved the people of God.

       At the same time, the Euphrates is also a part of the inheritance promised to Abraham. When the Sons of God dissolve the powers of spiritual darkness that have enslaved Israel, the true inheritance of Abraham will arrive. This blessing is the glorified Body of Christ, the kings from the rising sun, the rulers of the world to come. For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.

       When Satan and his New World Order begin to realize that all is lost, they will make a desperate attempt to regain their rule. In their depraved delusion they will come to believe that a global war might reverse their misfortunes. This gross error in judgment will drag them to their ultimate destruction, at the battle of Armageddon. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. ... And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

       At the battle of Armageddon the kingdoms of earth will be annexed by the Sons of God. The seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

       The air, and the creatures of earth who breathe it, have traditionally been the province of Satan. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.

       At the seventh vial, the Sons of God will seize the kingdoms of earth, redeeming men and angels from Satan’s grasp. This will complete the annihilation of political, spiritual, and economic Babylon. This seventh vial is Armageddon. It is the final conquest of heaven and earth. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.


       Armageddon is a cataclysmic confrontation between the Sons of God and the galactic forces of evil. It is the ultimate contest for dominion of the earth. This will be nothing like the paltry skirmishes of modern political activism, puny church programs, or videos for Jesus. Nor will it include the deluded Christians who think that spiritual maturity is watching the Easter pageant.

       This supernatural battle will not be won by human beings, nor will it be waged against the evil deeds of man. In this soon coming conflict, the wondrous Sons of God will bypass the diseased symptoms of human failure and attack Satan himself.

       In this global engagement, the Sons of God will close against all the powers of spiritual darkness, destroying some and imprisoning others. This frightening and awesome apocalypse will rend the fabric of creation. Unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

       By the time Armageddon arrives, the New World Order will be foaming as a rabid junkyard dog. Oppressed by a diseased spirit and thriving on delusion, they will be lured into gross miscalculation. In a blunder of stellar proportions, they will actually think they can destroy the Sons of God.

       Having been emaciated and provoked by the seven vials, the New World Order will devise a hasty plan of war. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. These deranged humans will gather a throng of exceeding strength: bureaucrats, policemen, and soldiers without number. Coughing and cackling, they will come to attack the Sons of God. I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

       All those who thrive on carnality will join the alliance of the beast. These are the idolatrous peoples of earth. Together they will become the Ten Horns of the New World Order. Be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones [the Body of Christ]. ... For they [the New World Order] have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. [Count them, ten!]

       As the armies of evil begin to assemble, the Sons of God will rise to the challenge. Thrilling to the battle, they will transform themselves into a terrifying array of supernal power. I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Clad in the traditional apparel of priests, they will take up the ancient ministry of slaughter. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

       Sweeping down upon the governments of man, gathering indignation about them as a storm, they will attack with the pent up fury of six thousand years. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

       This manifestation of the glorified Sons of God on earth is the second coming of Jesus Christ. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. In this day of extreme global turmoil, Jesus and his firstborn brothers will be unveiled. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob.

       At once they will be transfigured in glory, radiating supernatural splendor before the eyes of every man. All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains. This group of glorified beings will astound the corrupt mortals of earth, striking them with terror and sealing their imminent destruction. He comes with the clouds, and every eye shall observe Him with recognition and understanding, also those who were such that they pierced Him. And all the people of the earth shall beat their breasts in anguish because of Him. Revelation 1:7 (Wuest).

       With the tortuous blast of a horn the battle will flash upon the hills. This confrontation is described in Joel chapter 2. Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand. The Sons of God will converge to the clash and all the earth will quake. They are the celestial perfection of war. A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

       Suddenly they will appear, the Sons of God, as a tempest flying upon the forces of evil. As horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, ... as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. With eyes of piercing light they will examine the hearts of men and slay the minions of evil. Amidst clamor and tumult and the cries of the dying, they will destroy the villainy of earth. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

       Swift to the foes they attack, bringing judgment to every man. Nothing can stop them. Nothing can upset them, nor dissuade them from their dread purpose. These are invincible warriors, lords of spirit and flesh. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks. ... When they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. ... They shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

       At Armageddon, the Body of Christ will rise-up in triumph. This is their appointed time, and seizing it, they will step from the earth and stride amongst the stars of creation, to dispense the vengeance of God. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: and the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

       The battle of Armageddon will be the handiwork of the Sons of God. But the supernatural works of God are normally accomplished by seemingly natural means. His divine will is usually brought about by physical circumstances that give the illusion of being a natural occurrence. All the actions on earth are caused by the spiritual forces of God, but to the unregenerate, they seem to have rational explanations. So also, Armageddon will be a supernatural devastation, which will be accomplished in a natural way. The decision is wholly of the Lord - even the events that seem accidental are really ordered by Him. Proverbs 16:33 (Amplified).

       At the battle of Armageddon the Sons of God will have many weapons from which to choose. One option available to them is Earth Crust Displacement. Employing this scenario, the Sons of God would cause the earth’s thin crust to rip loose from its molten inner core. Since the earth is spinning at approximately 1,000 miles per hour, the crust would then slip around the earth, in a single sudden motion. Rotating in one piece, the crust would ride upon the planet’s huge inner center of liquid magma, finally coming to rest in a new location with respect to the present poles. This abrupt movement would cause cataclysmic destruction, with each continent coming to rest several thousand miles from where it began.

       The phenomenon of Earth Crust Displacement is a theory first suggested by Professor Charles Hapgood in 1953. The force that triggers this displacement is the massive and unequally distributed deposits of ice at the north and south poles. This theory was validated by Albert Einstein, who wrote, “The earth’s rotation acts on these unsymmetrically deposited masses, and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced this way will, when it reaches a certain point, produce a movement of the earth’s crust over the earth’s body, and this will displace the polar regions towards the equator.” This phenomenon has occurred many times in the last several million years. It is the mechanism responsible for the repeated “ice ages” of earth.

       By the catastrophic process of earth crust displacement, the entire crust of the earth will slide around the planet’s core, rotating approximately thirty degrees of longitude and latitude. The huge ice caps at the north and south poles will move toward the equator, coming to rest in warmer, temperate climates. These ice caps will then begin to melt very quickly, flooding the long-frozen land. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

       At the same time, some of the continents that now lie in temperate climates will be rotated into the freezing latitudes of the polar regions. These previously warm continents will then become instantly cold. Snow will begin to fall and accumulate. Glaciers will begin to grow. For these newly situated polar land masses, a new ice age will begin. Out of whose womb came the ice? And the hoary frost of heaven, who has given it birth? The waters are congealed like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Job 38:29,30 (Amplified).

       Portions of earth which today are fertile cradles of modern civilization, will quickly become howling arctic wastes. Snow will remorselessly cover these areas and eventually bury them beneath a layer of ice two miles thick. Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

       The immediate effect of earth crust displacement will be decisive global devastation. Hurricane winds will tear at the cities. Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth [the Body of Christ]: thou shalt thresh the mountains and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them.

       In the jarring jolt of the sudden shift, the earth’s crust will fracture. Streams of lava will surge to the surface and myriads of volcanoes will darken the sky with smoke and ash. I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD. I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known.

       As the continents realign their positions, the constellations of stars will appear to move in relative motion. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. Tidal waves will wash the coasts, and massive earthquakes will shake the surface of the globe. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

       Ice, snow, frost, cold, wind, water, and ash- what do all these have in common? He sends forth His commandment to the earth; His word runs very swiftly. He gives to the earth snow like a blanket of wool; He scatters the hoarfrost like ashes. He casts forth His ice like crumbs; who can stand before His cold? He sends out His word, and melts ice and snow; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow. Psalms 147:15-18. (Amplified).

       At Armageddon, the Sons of God will commandeer the forces of nature and use them to eradicate their enemies. Through cataclysmic upheaval they will destroy evil men, demolish human government, and obliterate the structures of organized religion. According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies. Then they will restrain the cosmic spiritual powers that have energized these cancers. Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

       At the battle of Armageddon, wickedness will die, and where it dwells in the hearts of men, they will be killed. The Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? Countless millions will fall and bodies will litter the continents of earth. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many. Iniquity, and the people who carry it, will be eradicated as a noxious plague. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity.

       Those who crave evil will perish. Their hearts will stop and their breath will cease. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground. Stilled in their own blood they will lie, and there they will sleep for a thousand years. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, ... and the flesh of all men, both free and bond.

       When the battle concludes, those who delight in carnality will be no more. The destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. And so few mortals will be left alive, they will be precious indeed. I will make a man more rare than fine gold, and mankind scarcer than the pure gold of Ophir. Isaiah 13:12 (Amplified).

       Armageddon means “hill, or city, of Megiddo.” Megiddo means “place of crowds.” The battle of Armageddon is a destruction, falling upon the “cities of crowds.” It is the apocalyptic end of this age, where the crowds of the captive and carnal are gathered together to die. The multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

       This is a great devastation, the eradication of evil, the cleansing of the earth. Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. ... In the latter days ye shall consider it. Entire nations will crash and multitudes will crumble into heaps. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about. ... Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat [Jehovah’s judgment]: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

       At the battle of Armageddon, human government will meet its demise. Though it has enslaved mankind for six thousand years, soon it will come to its end. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. When it attacks the Body of Christ, the New World Order will be exterminated as a psychotic beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

       Politicians, kings, and despots will be gathered to the fray, and there all the political systems of man will be destroyed by the Sons of God. For the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests. And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD'S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel. In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit. The global rule of mortals will cease, and never rise again. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.

       At the battle of Armageddon, the organized religions of man will be terminated. Islam, Hinduism, Jewry, and Modern Christianity, will be dissolved as a summer mist. It shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.

       The doctrines of Modern Christianity are social and carnal, the creations of human frailty. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats. When the Sons of God trample the earth in fury, these doctrines will shatter as diamonds of fraudulent paste. I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers: thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands. And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities. And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.

       When the tumult subsides, the officers of Modern Christianity will all be dead. Howl, ye shepherds, and make outcry, and roll in the dust, ye illustrious of the flock, because your days for being slaughtered are fulfilled, therefore will I break you in pieces, and ye shall fall, like a precious vessel! Then shall place of refuge vanish from the shepherds, and escape, from the illustrious of the flock. The voice of the outcry of the shepherds! Yea the howling of the illustrious of the flock! Because Yahweh is laying waste the grounds where they fed. Then shall be silenced the prosperous pastures, because of the fierceness of the anger of Yahweh. He hath left, as a lion, his covert, for their land hath become a horror. Jeremiah 25:34-38 (Emphasized).

       Those who empathize with heathen values and who peddle their false dogma for gain, will not survive. After Armageddon, the propagators of Modern Christianity will be gone and the land will be clean. O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them.

       Armageddon is the long awaited recompense of iniquity. It is the hour of retribution against the cosmic forces of evil. It is the collection of the blood debt owed for six thousand years of Adamic captivity. At Armageddon, human politics and religion will be eviscerated from the earth. And the beast was taken [politics], and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him [religion], with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

       Satan, the spiritual energy behind the evils of earth, will be chained as a troublesome pest. I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled.

       Then those left alive on the earth will emerge from their primordial prison, as one who awakes from a frightening dream. The captivity of man will cease, and for the first time since the fall of Adam in Eden, those on the earth will be free from the incessant cravings of Satanic desire. The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

       Though the mortals of earth will remain flesh and blood, their minds will no longer be energized by spiritual evil. Rebellion, wickedness, and immorality, will be gone. Carnality will be rendered inoperative.

       These fortunate few will stand in the dawn of a new age of spectacular grandeur. As awestruck children they will joyously move into the brilliant light of the Millennium. Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

The Millennium

       A destructive blaze swept through the forest, a crackling inferno of fire and smoke. Trees exploded in searing heat, the land was consumed and all was transformed into smoldering ash.

       But after the flames died away, the shady pall cast by the older trees was gone, and the undergrowth, with its tangle of competing weeds, was removed. As a result of the devastation the growing conditions were altered. For the first time in ages, sunlight reached the forest floor. The soil was enriched as never before and the seeds so long dormant in the sod, that never had a chance to grow, sprang suddenly to life.

       A torrential storm embroiled the land in angry, boiling clouds. With explosions of thunder the wet wind thrashed the dark day, which was cracked by blazing bolts of electrical power. In ferocious rage the tempest battered earth and sky, drenching all in a gale of streaming rain.

       But then the commotion moved on, and emerging from behind the last cloud, the sun gripped the land in intense renewal. As a result of the crashing squall the air was fresh and clean, the sky was awash in brilliant blue, and the soaked and steamy ground was born anew.

       When the tumult of Armageddon finally subsides and the last echoes of war roll over the distant hills, a restoration will begin which will reach beyond the heights of heaven. This regeneration is called the Millennium, and it will blossom in exhilarating splendor, uninterrupted for a thousand years. It will be a period of intoxicating grandeur that will wash the creation of God. And from this new environment, enriched by ash and rain, will spring forth the abundance of resplendent life.

       The Millennium is the seventh day of God’s Great Week. It is the seventh period of one-thousand years, during which God will deal with the fallen Adamic race upon planet earth. This seventh day will be like no other. It is the Sabbath of rest. It will be filled with the dew of righteousness, the warmth of peace, and the light of expanding truth. The agents of evil will be gone. Human government will be destroyed. Carnal religion will be eradicated. Satan will be chained. The minds of men will be loosed from devilish captivity, and their hearts will gratefully receive the abundant blessings of God.

       Throughout this new and wondrous world, the Sons of God will rule in dazzling brilliance. Standing open and visible before all the earth, they will nurture all flesh, coaxing forth healing, abundance, and virtue. Behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

       The firstborn Sons of God are the Sabbath Day people-- in them God will “rest” from his labors. And like the seventh day of Genesis, they will have no end. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day [the Body of Christ], and sanctified it.

       The gestation of the firstborn Sons will consume the first six thousand years of Adam’s time on earth. At the start of the seventh day, these Sons will enter their glory. Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened. And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate. The firstborn Sons of God are “The Day of the Lord.” They are the rulers of eternity. All the creation will be placed in their care. In that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

       When the Millennium begins, the Sons of God will assume command of creation, taking possession of the heavens and the earth as their rightful inheritance. I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. Having been born from the genetics of God, they will receive the created realm from their Father’s hand. The saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

       Every creature, every spirit, every star, will be given to the Body of Christ. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. The people, cities, continents, and seas of the earth, every kingdom, indeed, every place and every time will become the personal property of the Sons of God. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

       As the Sons of God commence their rule, they will carry a mandate from their Father to accomplish a redemption of all things. They shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. This work will be a restoration of exceeding proportions, reaching from the atoms in rocks to the angels in heaven. I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; that thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves.

       This renewal will begin small and intense, then like fire gone wild, it will spread to cover the globe. Unstoppable as divine flame, it will ultimately transform all things into right standing with God. All things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.

       The ascendancy of the many-membered Christ will open with a new, global government, that is founded upon righteousness. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder. This awesome administration will be a sweeping, world dominion. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.

       Parliaments and presidents will be guided by the omnipotent Sons. For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. ... The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet. All the earth will acquiesce to their rule. The whole land bows to you, with all the Pagan Tribes; because the LORD is King, He o’er the Heathen rules. They all shall eat, and bow all great on earth to Him, and all kneel in the dust, or their life will not live. Psalms 22:28-30 (Fenton).

       Every nation and every creature will come under the sway of the Sons of God; nothing shall escape their grasp. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

       As the government of Christ is established, a new world will begin to unfold. Their presence will create a new environment of prosperity and peace. From their rule will come revelation and righteousness. There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

       Omnipotent wisdom will restructure the world, bringing laws of life, rules of mutual benefit, directives of virtue, and judgments that elicit joy. Many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

       For the first time ever, the people of earth will be administered by incorruptible rulers, who will have the means and desire to bless those in their care. Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

       The priorities and energies of man will be altered. The very matrix of human interaction will switch from narcissism to altruism- giving will be greater than greed. Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion. Freed from the destructive influence of spiritual evil, all nations and people will strive for equity and fairness. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

       Every phase of earthly life will come to be governed by Godliness. At that time they will put on the bells of the horses, “Sacred to the LORD;” and the cauldrons in the LORD’S House will be like the bowls before the Altar; for every pot in Jerusalem will be consecrated to the LORD OF HOSTS. Zakariah 14:20,21 (Fenton). In this new world of caring and trust, disputes will be few and war unthinkable. He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

       The blessings of Christ’s rule will create an economic system of joyous opportunity. Innovation and production will excel. Shortages will not exist. Thriving in this prosperity, the people of earth will flourish in the fruits of their labor. They shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid. The slavery of debt will be gone, and the new system of trade will unfailingly yield abundance for buyers and sellers alike. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God. ... The floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God.

       Then a spiritual revival of stellar proportions will roll over the earth as a luminous wave. The Sons of God will dwell with the people, open and available to all, showing truth as the light of a summer day. All men will see them and behold their glory. Fear, doubt, and faith will cease to have meaning, for men will be convinced by the sight of their eyes. Yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it.

       Streaming from the Body of Christ will come waters of spiritual instruction, bathing and infusing every phase of daily life. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

       In the wonderful absence of adversarial energy, the light of God’s plan will ignite in the spirits of men, setting them blazing with new revelation. I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. Understanding will flow unhindered. The clear knowledge of God will become the common food. Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

       The teachings of Sonship will encircle the earth, energizing the hopes of man. All will tremble with goodness, exulting with tears, and shouting for joy at the benevolence of God. For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

       Then the nations of Israel, the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples, will learn who they are. Those Israelites who survive Armageddon will be gathered from the continents of earth and collected to the purpose of God. He shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

       Astonished, they will discover that they are principal players in the awesome plan of God. In bewildered amazement they will learn that the rulers of earth, the firstborn Sons of God, are their elder kinsmen. In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; and I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.

       Then they will all be taught of their Father’s plan and rejoice in his wisdom. Abandoning their failings, they will rush to turn their lives to the celestial calling of God. I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. ... Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols?

       The Millennium will be a much needed rest, an intermission of a thousand years. During this relative bliss the mortals of earth will live in peace and abundance, being flawlessly schooled in the teachings of God. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places. They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.

       The Millennium will be a time of pervasive serenity, but unfortunately, only a tiny contingent of people will be alive on the earth to enjoy it. During the Millennium nearly all of mankind will still lie cold in their graves. At Armageddon most of earth’s mortals will perish, and the general resurrection of all men is not until the end of the Millennium. For the vast multitude of those who have trod the surface of the earth, restoration will have to wait for another thousand years. The rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

       Another noteworthy fact of the Millennium is that during those centuries of repose, the process that produces spiritual maturity will not be able to function. Satan will be chained, and in the absence of evil, overcoming is impossible.

       Spiritual gestation requires a womb of testings and trials. Spiritual muscle simply cannot be developed without resistance. During the Millennial Sabbath of peaceful plenty the spirits of men will be blessed, but not matured, and no new Sons will be born. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work.

       The mortals of the Millennium will be like the Israelites in the Wilderness of Sinai. They will have provision and protection, but no possession. They will enjoy external blessing, but they will remain stalled in internal infancy. Though they will bask in the abundance of God, inside these people, there will be no lasting change.

       They will live as little children, never appropriating the deep realities of God’s plan. They will be without autonomous strength. As the angels, they will be unaware of evil, and thus ignorant of good. They will continue as lamps, needing constantly to be replenished with oil.

       The people of the Millennium will remain so spiritually weak, that even after a thousand years of living side by side with the Sons of God, these people will still be able to be deceived by Satan. At the end of the Millennium, most will turn against the Body of Christ, at the battle of Gog & Magog.

       For the mortals of the Millennium, the process that leads to spiritual maturity will be held in abeyance, until the Sabbath of rest is over, and evil is once again loosed upon the earth. Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none. And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

The Eighth Day

       At the end of the Millennium the conditions necessary to produce spiritual maturity in man will once again explode onto the earth, as a bull bursting from the gate. Satan will be released from his cage. Deception will flourish anew. Many of the mortals will be swayed, and the battle of Gog and Magog will devastate the planet. When the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

       Then will come the general resurrection of all mankind. This spectacular event will reach back through the fields of time and grasp hold of every person who has ever lived. All of the dead will be raised from their graves and restored to physical life. These are the multitudes of earth, billions of people, all those who did not attain to the firstborn Sons of God. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God. ... And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them.

       These resurrected mortals will be brought to the judgment of the Great White Throne. There each person will be examined for the presence of spiritual life. Some will be found to possess an embryo of Sonship; others will be empty. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it. ... And the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

       With this analysis made, each person will be restored to the level of spiritual maturity that he had attained prior to his death. Every person will begin again exactly where he left off.

       These multitudes of mankind will enter the crucible of the “Second Death.” The Second Death is a reenactment of this present world. In the Revelation it is called “the lake of fire,” for after the peaceful Millennium, it will reassemble the agonies of Satan, human government, false religion, disease, sinners, suffering, and death. The devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast [politics] and the false prophet [religion] are. ... And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

       The Second Death will simply reconstruct all the troublesome conditions that you now see around you. This is the special environment, the hothouse climate, that is necessary to produce spiritual maturity in man.

       The world around you today is the “First Death.” The Second Death will be just like it. The Second Death will become the womb and training ground for all the still carnal minded mortals who have ever lived. In that lake of fire all men will be changed, coming finally into that full maturity that God has planned for them. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. ... The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.



       Included in the general resurrection, hidden as a diamond in a field, will be the multitudes of Israel. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.

       In 496 BC, God sacrificed Israel. In addition to the vanity of their carnality, they were turned to the pain of idolatry and Babylonish servitude. Their identity was lost and they became ignorant of their celestial calling. This captivity was to last for 3,500 years, and will come to its end after the battle of Gog & Magog. Rush and writhe, Zion’s daughter, in child-bearing woes, you must now leave the City and dwell in the field, and go onward to Babel until I release, where the LORD will redeem from the hand of your foe! Mikah 4:10 (Fenton).

       Strange as it may seem, the sacrifice of Israel was the greatest gift that God could give to them. For by their death, their covenant to life was made unconditional and irrevocable. Just as the covenant to Isaac was made unconditional by his sacrifice, so also the sacrifice of Israel is their assurance of immortal glory. Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant.

       The pain of Israel’s experience was a prescription for spiritual growth. It was a prerequisite for spiritual maturity. It was an immersion in the environment that produces Overcomers. The sacrifice of Israel was the guarantee of their ultimate success. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.

       After the Millennium, at the start of the “Eighth Day,” God will summon all Israel into Sonship. Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 3,500 years after their sacrifice, Israel will be raised from the dead and ushered into the glories of autonomous spiritual life. I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth. And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. ... And they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.

       According to the election of God, every natural born Israelite will one day become a spiritually begotten Son of the Living God. Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn. All the multitudes of Israel will become the Sons of God. And so all Israel shall be saved. They are the huge harvest of Sonship that follows the Firstfruits. For I will collect the children of Judah, and the children of Israel together, and they will appoint a Single Head for themselves and rise up from the earth for the Great Day of God’s Harvest. Hosea 2:2 (Fenton).

       At their resurrection the unregenerate Israelites will become the “bride” of the corporate Body of Christ. Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. And he ... shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having ... twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.

       These people are called the “bride” because they are still spiritually “feminine.” This means that they have the ability to reproduce spiritual life, if they first get the seed of life from their husband. Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

       After their resurrection all Israel will go to their elder kinsmen, the Firstborn Sons of God, and receive from them the spirit seed of eternal life. This transfer of genetic power will initiate the process of Sonship in them. For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee.

       Then all Israel will thrive as Sons in the making. Dwelling alongside their elder brothers, they will blossom into spiritual splendor. With the personal instruction of the Firstborn Sons, they will understand the calling of Sonship and race after its grandeur.

       This time the Israelites will be successful in their bid for Sonship, for they will have all the ingredients of victory, and the personal encouragement of those who have been through the process. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. ... Then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb.

       Through the overcoming process of spirit birth, all Israel will eventually become the “Second Born” Sons of God. In the Second Death, each will complete the same steps of spiritual gestation that brought forth Jesus and his firstborn brothers. For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name. Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

       This transformation of Israel will signal the sweeping restoration of all mankind. All men have been sacrificed to carnality by the sublime wisdom of God. And from their sacrifice, they too shall reap their reward. In the heat of the Second Death all men will be made “thirsty” for the water of life. And desiring it, they shall surely have it. Behold, I make all things new. ... I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. After Israel is brought into Sonship, all the Adamic race will enter into the opulence of immortality. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

       Every person who has ever tasted the sacrifice of God’s Great Week will eventually share in the result, as warriors feasting on the spoils of war. They will all be changed from the inside. They shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Every person who has ever lived will be restored, cleansed, reconciled, and brought into right standing with God. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.



       When the boundless goodness of God completes the regeneration of earth, and the rollicking billows soothe to an airy summer breeze, all things will be made new. The earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. ... And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

       In the glory of the new heavens and the new earth, all flesh will dwell in vibrant, personal relationship with God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

       The devastating effects of Eden will be no more. The curses of Eden will cease to exist, and the fall of Adam will be called the greatest blessing ever to enter the mind of God. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

       Then a fresh new power will roll off the earth, traveling through space as an effortless wave. As a ring of expanding light it will race out past the planets and stars, penetrating all things, and spreading to the farthest bounds of creation.

       The Sons of God will enter the remote galaxies of the universe, appearing in every place and every time. Every creature in the distant lands will see the wonder of God. Every kingdom will be changed, instructed, and birthed into new grandeur. In the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him.

       For the endless eons to come, the Sons of God will govern the creation in righteousness, and dwell in the joyous personal fellowship of their Father. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

       When God plants a crop, he harvests every grain. Nothing of his plan will fail. But there is a big difference between the Firstborn Sons and the Second Born Sons. As the firstfruits unto God, the Firstborn Sons will receive the double portion inheritance that is reserved for a firstborn in Israel. Giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.

       The Firstborn Sons will be birthed from a hotter fire. They will be developed by faith and not by sight. During their spiritual gestation they will lack the personal, tangible comfort, that will be common for the second born Sons. The Firstborn Sons will lift heavier spiritual weights, and thus develop greater spiritual muscle. Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. Like Jesus, they will attain the ultimate expression of their Father. For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

       The Firstborn Sons will become the progenitors of all future generations. Accordingly, they will inherit all things, including their younger siblings. Fear not, little flock [the Firstborn Sons]; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

       Being part of the kingdom is a glorious proposition, but being part of the King is better. It is only the Firstborn Sons that will receive the double portion inheritance of God. My Prince will add twice to His power, to collect the remains of His race who are left. Isaiah 11:11 (Fenton).

       The Firstborn Sons of God will be supernatural beings, divine in character and ability, the magnificent issue of God himself. They will not be human, nor will they be a gaggle of saved sinners, as the petty concept of the modern church.

       The glorious Firstborn of Israel will be a group of individuals who have conceived to the life of Christ, crucified their carnal natures, brought forth mature spirits, and come to spirit birth. Together they will form the Body of Christ. These Sons are the hope of the universe. They will become the saviors of mankind, the judges of all the worlds to come, and the masters of eternity.

       Until the start of the Millennium, you have the opportunity to become part of this firstborn group. This quest is a journey through storms. It is the training of a warrior. It is immersion in the greatest battles in existence. It is the pursuit of heaven’s height. If you are able to perceive this magnificent goal, let nothing stand in your way. The mystery which has been kept hidden from the ages and from the generations, but now was made known to His saints, to whom God desired to make known in an experiential way what is the wealth of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of the glory. Colossians 1:26,27 (Wuest).
