The end of the USA as the sixth kingdom of Bible prophecy is illustrated in several biblical passages, but there is one specifically that should be marked before we move away from our discussion of Donald Trump. President Trump has been typified by President Washington in terms of his wealth derived from real estate in terms of the length of time to confirm his cabinet selections and in terms of honesty when considering his efforts to keep his campaign promises.
He was also typified by the two most prominent Democratic presidents that sought to implement and establish the globalist agenda of a one-world government with President Wilson and President Roosevelt. He also was typified by President Reagan in the history of the collapse of the USSR, thus typifying the collapse of Putin's Russia in his presidency.
He was further typified by President Lincoln showing that in the presidency of Trump there will be another civil war in this country, the beginnings of which can readily be seen by any that wish to see. As with Lincoln and even Roosevelt, the war Trump will be confronted with will force the implementation of martial law. Slavery, that was abolished by Lincoln, will return in this coming crisis, but a more significant consideration in terms of the USA was the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Though widely misrepresented and therefore misunderstood, the historical testimony is still available that demonstrates that the Jesuit order of the Catholic Church assassinated Abraham Lincoln. The Society of Jesus, as the Jesuit order is officially called, was the most wicked, deceitful, and cruel order of all the various orders within the Catholic system. In agreement with many historical sources, Ellen White said it this way:
"Throughout Christendom, Protestantism was menaced by formidable foes. The first triumphs of the Reformation past, Rome summoned new forces, hoping to accomplish its destruction. At this time the order of the Jesuits was created, the most cruel, unscrupulous, and powerful of all the champions of popery. Cut off from earthly ties and human interests, dead to the claims of natural affection, reason and conscience wholly silenced, they knew no rule, no tie, but that of their order, and no duty but to extend its power. The gospel of Christ had enabled its adherents to meet danger and endure suffering, undismayed by cold, hunger, toil, and poverty, to uphold the banner of truth in face of the rack, the dungeon, and the stake. To combat these forces, Jesuitism inspired its followers with a fanaticism that enabled them to endure like dangers, and to oppose to the power of truth all the weapons of deception. There was no crime too great for them to commit, no deception too base for them to practice, no disguise too difficult for them to assume. Vowed to perpetual poverty and humility, it was their studied aim to secure wealth and power, to be devoted to the overthrow of Protestantism, and the re-establishment of the papal supremacy.
"When appearing as members of their order, they wore a garb of sanctity, visiting prisons and hospitals, ministering to the sick and the poor, professing to have renounced the world, and bearing the sacred name of Jesus, who went about doing good. But under this blameless exterior the most criminal and deadly purposes were often concealed. It was a fundamental principle of the order that the end justifies the means. By this code, lying, theft, perjury, assassination, were not only pardonable but commendable, when they served the interests of the church. Under various disguises the Jesuits worked their way into offices of state, climbing up to be the counselors of kings, and shaping the policy of nations. They became servants to act as spies upon their masters. They established colleges for the sons of princes and nobles, and schools for the common people; and the children of Protestant parents were drawn into an observance of popish rites. All the outward pomp and display of the Romish worship was brought to bear to confuse the mind and dazzle and captivate the imagination, and thus the liberty for which the fathers had toiled and bled was betrayed by the sons. The Jesuits rapidly spread themselves over Europe, and wherever they went, there followed a revival of popery.
"To give them greater power, a bull was issued re-establishing the inquisition. Notwithstanding the general abhorrence with which it was regarded, even in Catholic countries, this terrible tribunal was again set up by popish rulers, and atrocities too terrible to bear the light of day were repeated in its secret dungeons. In many countries, thousands upon thousands of the very flower of the nation, the purest and noblest, the most intellectual and highly educated, pious and devoted pastors, industrious and patriotic citizens, brilliant scholars, talented artists, skillful artisans, were slain or forced to flee to other lands." The Great Controversy, 234, 235.
Donald Trump represents not only the last president of the USA but the nation itself. In the Bible, kings are a symbol of the kingdoms. The end of the USA as the sixth kingdom of Bible prophecy takes place when it takes up the work of forcing the world to accept the mark of papal authority. When this takes place, the USA will be in submission to Catholicism as was Ahab in submission to Jezebel and Herod to Herodias. The death of the USA takes place when she is conquered by Catholicism and agrees to force the entire world to submit to Rome's mark of authority.
The current pope of Catholicism is a Jesuit and he is the first pope in history to be from the Jesuit order. Just as Lincoln was assassinated by the Jesuit order, Trump as the symbol of the USA is about to be overcome by the cruelest and most deceitful representative of Catholicism in the history of Catholicism. The beginnings of this assassination happen behind the scenes, for the alliance between Reagan and the Vatican was a secret alliance, and no doubt Donald Trump is already involved with some type of unholy secret alliance with the Roman church. That alliance will contribute to the collapse of Russia, as the USSR was brought down through the secret alliance in that history. But ultimately, that alliance will bring to an end the sovereignty of the USA too, and it will be the primary antagonist to insist that all nations surrender their national sovereignty and submit to a global government.
Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the first and last, the beginning and the end. He illustrates the end of a thing with the beginning of a thing. The last two verses of the Old Testament predict the coming of Elijah, and the Gospels of the New Testament begin by introducing John the Baptist, who Jesus identifies as the Elijah to come. The end and the beginning of the Old and the New identify the beginning and the end of the end of the world.
The warning of judgment to come began in the pioneer movement of Seventh-day Adventism. The covenant time secrets that were based on Daniel 8:13, 14 revealed that God's investigative judgment began on October 22, 1844. Thus, at the beginning of Adventism, a messenger and a movement announced that God's judgment was to begin. At the end of Adventism, there would once again be an announcement that God's executive judgments were about to begin. The investigative judgment and the executive judgment are both judgments, but they represent two types of judgments. The Bible teaches that when Jesus returns, the reward He intends to give is with Him. This identifies that Jesus has already determined who is for Him and who is not for Him before His return:
Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. Isaiah 3:10, 11.
Before Christ returns, He investigates the books to determine who is righteous and who is wicked. This work is a work of investigation and judgment.
Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken. Isaiah 62:11, 12.
There is a time when He finishes judging who will be saved and who will be lost, and then He returns:
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:11–13.
The beginning of Adventism announced that on October 22, 1844, Jesus would begin investigating the books of heaven to determine who would be lost and who would be saved. This was the Elijah announcement of the investigative judgment which typified the Elijah message at the end of Adventism that announces, in fulfillment of the prophecy of Malachi, that God is to begin executing His destructive judgments.
Those who are deceived by the false prophet (the USA) and worship the beast of the kingdom that came before the USA, will not have their names written in the book of life:
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. Revelation 13:8, 9.
If your name is not in the book of the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world you will be cast into the lake of fire:
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15.
The only actual biblical illustration of God the Father, who is called the "Ancient of days" is found in the book of Daniel. We know the Ancient of days is not a description of Christ, for Christ is the Son of man in the passage.
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. . ..
I saw in the night visions, and, 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. Daniel 7:9, 10, 13.
This investigation of the books of heaven which are three, the book of life, the book of sins, and the book of remembrance were opened on October 22, 1844. This was the judgment announced in the pioneer movement of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that typifies the judgment announcement of the executive judgments of the great and terrible day of the Lord on July 18, 2020.
The pioneer movement of Adventism reached its prophetic zenith from August 11, 1840, to October 22, 1844. Both of these dates include the day, month, and year and both represent a fulfillment of prophecy. The history of 1840 to 1844 is specifically commented upon by Ellen White:
"The angel who unites in the proclamation of the third angel's message is to lighten the whole earth with his glory. A work of world-wide extent and unwonted power is here foretold. The advent movement of 1840–44 was a glorious manifestation of the power of God; the first angel's message was carried to every missionary station in the world, and in some countries there was the greatest religious interest which has been witnessed in any land since the Reformation of the sixteenth century; but these are to be exceeded by the mighty movement under the last warning of the third angel." The Great Controversy, 611.
Based on a time prophecy three hundred and ninety-one years and fifteen days that addressed Islam in Revelation nine, the pioneers of Adventism predicted that on August 11, 1840, the supremacy of the Ottoman Empire would end. Before that prophecy was fulfilled those pioneers were ridiculed for what was claimed to be such a foolish application of prophecy, but when it came true roughly two hundred thousand people joined their movement. Ellen White says it this way.
"In the year 1840 another remarkable fulfillment of prophecy excited widespread interest. two years before, Josiah Litch, one of the leading ministers preaching the second advent, published an exposition of Revelation 9, predicting the fall of the Ottoman Empire. According to his calculations, this power was to be overthrown . . . on the 11th of August, 1840, when the Ottoman power in Constantinople may be expected to be broken. And this, I believe, will be found to be the case.'
"At the very time specified, Turkey, through her ambassadors, accepted the protection of the allied powers of Europe, and thus placed herself under the control of Christian nations. The event exactly fulfilled the prediction. When it became known, multitudes were convinced of the correctness of the principles of prophetic interpretation adopted by Miller and his associates, and a wonderful impetus was given to the advent movement. Men of learning and position united with Miller, both in preaching and in publishing his views, and from 1840 to 1844 the work rapidly extended." The Great Controversy, 334, 335.
Therefore, at the beginning of the pioneer movement of Adventism, we have a period that bears the mark of the Alpha and Omega. We have a history that begins with the fulfillment of a time prophecy and also ends with the fulfillment of a time prophecy. In biblical history, there was another manifestation of the power of God that Ellen White places a similar comment upon:
"Never since man was created had there been witnessed such a manifestation of divine power as when the law was proclaimed from Sinai. ‘The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.' Psalm 68:8. Amid the most terrific convulsions of nature the voice of God, like a trumpet, was heard from the cloud. The mountain was shaken from base to summit, and the hosts of Israel, pale and trembling with terror, lay upon their faces upon the earth. He whose voice then shook the earth has declared, ‘Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.' Hebrews 12:26. Says the Scripture, ‘The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter His voice from His holy habitation;' ‘and the heavens and the earth shall shake.' Jeremiah 25:30; Joel 3:16. In that great coming day, the heaven itself shall depart ‘as a scroll when it is rolled together.' Revelation 6:14. And every mountain and island shall be moved out of its place. ‘The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.' Isaiah 24:20." Patriarchs and Prophets, 340.
Of course, Christians understand that the resurrection of Christ was also a glorious manifestation of the power of God. The book of John identifies a discussion that the Jews had with Christ concerning His death, burial, and resurrection, where they give evidence that they, as the covenant people who were being passed by, knew not how to rightly divide the prophetic words of Christ. Christ had just cleansed the temple the first time and the Jews raise a question:
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body. John 2:18–21.
The period of time from August 11, 1840, to October 22, 1844, the giving of the law at Sinai, and the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ provide three witnesses that allow us to see that 1840 to 1844 is a prophetic period, and as such must be evaluated with the prophetic rules established by Christ in His word. How are these three witnesses testifying to the same symbol?
If you count the number of days from August 11, 1840, to October 22, 1844, you will find that there are 1533 days. If you carefully study out the chronology of when the Jews crossed the Red Sea and arrived at Sinai you will see that it took place in 1533 BC. If you take the Jew's assertion that the temple took forty-six years to build and divide that number by the three days that Christ referenced, you will find that one day equates to 15.33 years. This is a revelation of the prophetic word that is only recognized when we understand that Jesus is Palmoni, the Wonderful Numberer of secrets. It is amazing how part of the story of the crucifixion is recorded in the book of Mark. Not simply the book of Mark, but Mark 15:33:
And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
The number "1533" represents a glorious manifestation of the power of God. It represents the giving of the law at Sinai, the three days of His death, burial, and resurrection, and also a period represented as the sixth until the ninth hour. The pioneer beginning of Adventism that announced judgment represents the ending of Adventism when God's executive judgment is announced in fulfillment of the promise of Elijah that would come before the great and dreadful day of the Lord. A symbolic period of "1533" days from 1840 to 1844 that begins with the fulfillment of a time prophecy associated with Islam and ending with a time prophecy associated with God's judgment is a symbol at the beginning that must represent a history at the end.
July 18, 2020, is a prediction of time associated with Islam that announces the beginning of God's executive judgment. The symbolic history of pioneer Adventism from August 11, 1840, to October 22, 1844, identifies that at the end of Adventism we will find the prophetic elements of time, Islam, and judgment.
God's people at the end of the world, represented by Elijah that do not suffer martyrdom as represented by John the Baptist, are identified in the book of Revelation as the one hundred and forty-four thousand and also as virgins. This is marked in Revelation 14:4, and if you are willing to see it, the chapter and verse numbers represent the one hundred and forty-four thousand:
These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. Revelation 14:4.
Jesus, who is the Word of God from the book of Genesis to Revelation, set forth a parable of the church living at the end of the world that was represented as ten virgins. The beginning of pioneer Adventism illustrates the end of Adventism, and therefore the virgins at the end identify that the pioneer movement was also a fulfillment of the parable of the ten virgins. Ellen White says it this way:
"The parable of the ten virgins of Matthew 25 also illustrates the experience of the Adventist people." The Great Controversy, 393.
Pioneer Adventism recognized that the history they were living in was fulfilling the parable of the ten virgins and they often identified their history and experience with terms from the parable itself. The parable reads as follows:
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Matthew 25:1–12.
The cry at "midnight" is first referenced in the history of Moses, for in the last of the ten Egyptian plagues, when all the firstborn were slain, there was a cry at midnight that went around Egypt:
And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. Exodus 12:29, 30.
From that cry at midnight to this very day, the Jews commemorate that date by celebrating the Passover. At the beginning of ancient Israel, there was a cry at midnight, and on the very day of the year that Passover was from that point onward observed, Jesus was sacrificed on the cross of Calvary. The cross was the conclusion of an entrance into Jerusalem that Christ made announcing that He was the King of Kings. It was understood that when Christ rode the ass into Jerusalem at His triumphal entry that riding of the ass was a symbol of his kingly authority.
At the beginning of ancient Israel and the end of ancient Israel there was a midnight cry that typified that at the beginning of modern Israel and then again at the end of modern Israel there would be a midnight cry. Speaking of the midnight cry of pioneer Adventism, Ellen White makes the following comparison:
"The midnight cry was not so much carried by argument, though the Scripture proof was clear and conclusive. There went with it an impelling power that moved the soul. There was no doubt, no questioning. Upon the occasion of Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the people who were assembled from all parts of the land to keep the feast, flocked to the Mount of Olives, and as they joined the throng that were escorting Jesus, they caught the inspiration of the hour, and helped to swell the shout, ‘Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord!' [Matthew 21:9.] In like manner did unbelievers who flocked to the Adventist meetings—some from curiosity, some merely to ridicule—feel the convincing power attending the message, ‘Behold, the Bridegroom cometh!'" The Spirit of Prophecy, volume 4, 250, 251.
We, therefore, can consider three witnesses of the midnight cry that, if brought together, will testify to the fact that the message of July 18, 2020, and Nashville is the message of the midnight cry that is proclaimed by the virgins of Revelation 14:4.
The first midnight cry in Egypt represented God's executive judgment upon the nation where Israel had been living in the fulfillment of Abraham's prophecy of four hundred years:
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. Genesis 15:13, 14.
The nation where ancient Israel sojourned was judged at midnight and thereafter at the Red Sea. The nation where modern Israel was raised up is the USA and it will be judged on July 18, 2020, and will come to its end on December 25, 2021, in agreement with the first mention of the midnight cry in the Bible.
At the end of ancient Israel, Christ's "triumphal entry" into Jerusalem was leading Him to judgment. It was a manifestation of the power of God, for all of Jerusalem was moved:
And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strowed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? Matthew 21:6–10.
All the city was moved by His entry and they cried out saying, "blessed is he that cometh," which is the message of the ten virgins that cry out, "behold the bridegroom cometh." This informs us that the midnight cry includes a judgment upon the nation where God's people arise as in the history of Moses, and a proclamation of a message under the power of God to the covenant people that are being passed by. It also identifies that the message is carried upon the message of Islam:
On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt. John 12:12–15.
This is the only time Jesus did not walk. In the triumphal entry in fulfillment of His very own prophetic word, He rode an ass. An ass is a symbol of Islam in the Bible, for remember the Hebrew word translated as "wild" in Genesis 16:12, which refers to Ishmael being a wild man, is the Hebrew word for the wild Arabian ass. Many other biblical witnesses for the ass representing Islam can be ascertained in the Bible, but it should be noted here that the message of the coming of the king of Israel, who is also the bridegroom was carried by the message of the ass.
In the pioneer history of Adventism, the midnight cry was empowered at a camp meeting in Exeter, New Hampshire on August 15, 1844. Ellen White describes it as follows:
"Like a tidal wave the movement swept over the land. From city to city, from village to village, and into remote country places it went, until the waiting people of God were fully aroused. Fanaticism disappeared before this proclamation like early frost before the rising sun. Believers saw their doubt and perplexity removed, and hope and courage animated their hearts. The work was free from those extremes which are ever manifested when there is human excitement without the controlling influence of the word and Spirit of God. It was similar in character to those seasons of humiliation and returning unto the Lord which among ancient Israel followed messages of reproof from His servants. It bore the characteristics that mark the work of God in every age. There was little ecstatic joy, but rather deep searching of heart, confession of sin, and forsaking of the world. A preparation to meet the Lord was the burden of agonizing spirits. There was persevering prayer and unreserved consecration to God." The Great Controversy, 400.
The message that was proclaimed at the camp meeting in Exeter on August 15, 1844, was a presentation of Samuel Snow who had fine-tuned the initial message of pioneer Adventism which identified that Palmoni's two secret time prophecies of 2300 years and 2520 years would end in the year 1843. Samuel Snow brought evidence to demonstrate that the conclusion of those two prophecies was not 1843, and not simply 1844, but more specifically October 22, 1844. When October 22, 1844, arrived, it had been 1533 days since a similar prediction had been fulfilled on August 11, 1840.
That prediction was first presented publicly by Josiah Litch in 1838, but on August 1, 1840, Josiah Litch fine-tuned his prediction and not only identified the year of 1840, but also the month and day. This was the same phenomenon that Snow had fulfilled. At the beginning of the 1533 days, there was a fine-tuning of a time prophecy that was fulfilled and in the end, the same phenomenon happened again, for Jesus demonstrates the end from the beginning. The ending differed in that it was the message of the midnight cry that found its fulfillment, and at the beginning, it was a message about Islam. Ellen White addresses the repetition of the parable of the ten virgins as follows:
"I am often referred to the parable of the ten virgins, five of whom were wise, and five foolish. This parable has been and will be fulfilled to the very letter, for it has a special application to this time, and, like the third angel's message, has been fulfilled and will continue to be present truth till the close of time." The Review and Herald, August 19, 1890.
The Passover of Moses, the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem, the tidal wave that swept over the eastern seaboard of the USA from the Exeter camp meeting on August 15, 1844, to October 22, 1844, all represent histories that will be repeated in the history of the virgins represented as the one hundred and forty-four thousand. One of the first observations that can be made about the midnight cry is that the date of the first midnight cry, the Passover in Egypt, was to be remembered and observed forever. The dates of August 15, 1844, October 22, 1844, and August 11, 1840, are all governed by that same principle.
August 11, 1840, at the beginning of that history, illustrated the end of that history. Therefore, all the dates associated with the beginning and the end are associated with the midnight cry, and God's people are to observe those dates. Those dates (and others) become points of reference for illustrating the connection of nuclear weapons and July 18, 2020.
