Mapping the Christ Arrival by Prophecy Cross Reference
Precedes Christ Arrival Immediate
Using the Christ arrival benchmark and working first backwards, what are a couple things we can use the Bible’s own text to determine immediately precede the Christ arrival? What can we find in the Bible that happens just before Christ arrives?
Let us examine two prophecies which have globally seen features that expire into the Christ arrival, thus being active before he arrives in the “tribulation of those days” and in the cessation of the final warning “two witnesses” final ministry which have to be in parallel leading to the Christ arrival
1. Tribulation of Those Days Ends
(Matthew 24:29-31) “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 And then the sign of the Son of man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in lamentation, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send forth his angels with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather his chosen ones together from the four winds, from one extremity of the heavens to their other extremity.
Obviously, this is a great clue with no “end of the world” described as well. This is a portion of the “great tribulation” that Christ cannot “cut short” because he does not even arrive in the sequence until “immediately after” the “tribulation of those days” ends as explicitly described in the text.
A. And we note there is no “the end” in this sequence, the prophecy ends with the sheep gathering sequence occurring first.
B. This “tribulation” phase must be resolving by other means, such as the “sword stroke” of a world war resolving and “healing” on its own by 8th King design.
Now we just examined the event immediate to the Christ arrival, something resolves the “tribulation of those days” other than a divine “the end” “cut short the days” intervention. Keeping this in mind let’s examine the cessation of the final warning “two witnesses” ministry for its final symbolic period to expire into the Christ arrival in this parallel. This is the last prophetic timed symbolic period that expires right into the Christ arrival:
2. Three and a Half Days Death State of Two Witnesses Killed Expires
(Revelation 11:7-13) And when they have finished their witnessing, the wild beast that ascends out of the abyss will make war with them and conquer them and kill them. 8 And their corpses will be on the broad way of the great city which is in a spiritual sense called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also impaled. 9 And those of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their corpses for three and a half days, and they do not let their corpses be laid in a tomb. 10 And those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and enjoy themselves, and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those dwelling on the earth. 11 And after the three and a half days spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those beholding them. 12 And they heard a loud voice out of heaven say to them: “Come on up here.” And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them. 13 And in that hour a great earthquake occurred, and a tenth of the city fell; and seven thousand persons were killed by the earthquake, and the rest became frightened and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Well, putting aside all the distractions in this text to concentrate on the big symbols first we have the “wildbeast” “ascending” from the Revelation 17:8-12 sequence “abyss” which ascent is into world government gone global. We have an “abyss” state and global phase ending which can be a parallel of the ending of the “tribulation of those days” as a “sword stroke” defined “abyss” context for world government to arise from as the ultimate “8th King” “scarlet wild beast” symbol in completion emerging with the “sword stroke” “got healed” global recovery phase.
Knowing this “tribulation of those days” is then a context of the “sword stroke” final world war we know the “abyss” is also the context from which the “wildbeast” ascends. We know world government “wildbeast” is “ascending” into that final global “healing” phase of the “sword stroke” phase ending. That “sword stroke” of Revelation 13:3, in its peak global “tribulation of those days” is ending with that world war resolving as the “tribulation of those days” is also expiring. These are the obvious parallels to manifest in world government also to be seen globally before Christ arrives.
Working Backwards from Christ Arrival
1260 Days Ends
Now we can work backwards through the reversing of the first six trumpets and that final 1260 days that defined the final period of the final warning in the 6th trumpet period as Revelation 9 merged into Revelation 10-11:1-10 all before Christ arrives in Revelation 11:11-12 parallel.
Now we know this 1260 days parallel to Revelation 11:1-7 also ends with a conquering of the “holy ones” who would define the “two witnesses” “killed” cessation of the final warning:
(Revelation 13:5-8) And a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies was given it, and authority to act forty-two months was given it. 6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his residence, even those residing in heaven. 7 And there was granted it to wage war with the holy ones and conquer them, and authority was given it over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. 8 And all those who dwell on the earth will worship it; the name of not one of them stands written in the scroll of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered, from the founding of the world.
World Government Rises
Now we have the great clue in the ultimate purpose of this whole “sword stroke” world war cycle was to “heal” the global situation to promote the global worship “admiration” of world government “wild beast”.
(Revelation 13:3) And I saw one of its heads as though slaughtered to death, but its death-stroke got healed, and all the earth followed the wild beast with admiration.
Now that we know what precedes the Christ arrival to the beginning of the final “sword stroke” to define the parallel “tribulation of those days” and the “abyss” to resolve into an “abyss” “ascended” final world government “wild beast” entity we can examine this sequence of the rise of world government in this parallel:
(Revelation 17:8-14) The wild beast that you saw was, but is not, and yet is about to ascend out of the abyss, and it is to go off into destruction. And when they see how the wild beast was, but is not, and yet will be present, those who dwell on the earth will wonder admiringly, but their names have not been written upon the scroll of life from the founding of the world. 9 “Here is where the intelligence that has wisdom comes in: The seven heads mean seven mountains, where the woman sits on top. 10 And there are seven kings: five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet arrived, but when he does arrive he must remain a short while. 11 And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also itself an eighth [king], but springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction. 12 “And the ten horns that you saw mean ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings one hour with the wild beast. 13 These have one thought, and so they give their power and authority to the wild beast. 14 These will battle with the Lamb, but, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them. Also, those called and chosen and faithful with him [will do so].”
Babylon the Great Deposed
Thus, we know Revelation 17:14 is a hint of the parallel of the Christ arrival of Matthew 24:29 as it is a statement of certainty in that “will battle with the lamb” is not one describing an action undertaken at that time, but one that “will” occur most certainly. But by that placement of a Christ arrival parallel we now know one more feature that occurs after Christ arrives, Babylon the Great is then deposed by complete world government of the Revelation 17:8-13 sequence, after which, this occurs:
(Revelation 17:15-18) And he says to me: “The waters that you saw, where the harlot is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues. 16 And the ten horns that you saw, and the wild beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her devastated and naked, and will eat up her fleshy parts and will completely burn her with fire. 17 For God put [it] into their hearts to carry out his thought, even to carry out [their] one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished. 18 And the woman whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.”
7th Plague Christ “Air” Arrival Precedes Babylon Deposed
And this “air” event of the 7th Plague is also a Christ arrival event of 1 Thessalonians 4:17 and Babylon the Great is then deposed after the air arrival of Christ as implied in Revelation 17:14-18:
(Revelation 16:16-20) And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Har–Magedon. 17 And the seventh one poured out his bowl upon the air. At this a loud voice issued out of the sanctuary from the throne, saying: “It has come to pass!” 18 And lightnings and voices and thunders occurred, and a great earthquake occurred such as had not occurred since men came to be on the earth, so extensive an earthquake, so great. 19 And the great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell; and Babylon the Great was remembered in the sight of God, to give her the cup of the wine of the anger of his wrath. 20 Also, every island fled, and mountains were not found.
“Four Winds” Under World Government Proof
We know the Revelation 7 144000 completion is also the Revelation 14 144000 completion and the that the “four winds” period must occur after that 144000 is complete. So, the “four winds” cannot be the “tribulation of those days” which ended before the final sheep are gathered in Matthew 24:31 (Rev7:9-17 “great crowd” deliverance parallel; also Rev14:14-16; Matt25:31-40) of which the finality of the 144000 must be the first sheep group completed to define Revelation 14:1-5.
Two Areas of Common Confusion
1. Thus, what throws people off is when they try to equate the “four winds” with the “tribulation of those days”.
In reality the “four winds” is after the “tribulation of those days” has ended into world government completion parallel. The “four winds” has to take place under complete world government.
The other area that causes confusion are these parallel destruction modes that precede the total end, where these “kings” are synonymous with complete 8th King world government:
(Daniel 8:25) And according to his insight he will also certainly cause deception to succeed in his hand. And in his heart he will put on great airs, and during a freedom from care he will bring many to ruin. And against the Prince of princes he will stand up, but it will be without hand that he will be broken.
(Daniel 11:44-45) “But there will be reports that will disturb him, out of the sunrising and out of the north, and he will certainly go forth in a great rage in order to annihilate and to devote many to destruction. 45 And he will plant his palatial tents between [the] grand sea and the holy mountain of Decoration; and he will have to come all the way to his end, and there will be no helper for him.
2. Some people assume these are also part of the initial “tribulation of those days”, but they must define the following “four winds” phase under world government, the final phase of the overall “great tribulation”.
In reality, those are destructions all orchestrated by complete world government and define the “four winds” defining attempted global selective destruction agenda while they are also claiming “world peace”. Both the “four winds” and those destructive modes are under world government complete, some time in its final Revelation 17:12 “one hour” of global authority.
World Government World Peace Signal
The “four winds” has to unfold after the “tribulation of those days” that helped present world government and its “world peace” of 1Thessalonians 5:1-3. Thus, the “during a freedom from care he will bring many to ruin” is in the “four winds” during that final “world peace” and security and the “freedom from care” parallel as they have a destructive agenda which must take place during the time of the “world peace” cover story and global mantra of 8th King world government.
(1 Thessalonians 5:1-3) Now as for the times and the seasons, brothers, you need nothing to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know quite well that Jehovah’s day is coming exactly as a thief in the night. 3 Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape.
The question here is who are the “they”. Well, if world government officials are globally speaking “world peace” so will those fooled by this also be believing this final world government signal mantra. Thus, the “they” is a globally seen and heard and present “world peace” of world government finality many will speak from top to bottom. This ultimate “world peace” credibility is obviously added to when Babylon the Great is also fully deposed to add to that proclamation or to signal its emergence in full form.
But from the “four winds” context we know “they” can be undergoing an “sudden destruction” from the world government “bring many to ruin” agenda which is then “cut short” by God and Christ to eventually come on all of the “they” in that world peace proclaiming global population including its world government:
(Matthew 24:21-22) there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. 22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.
And now we see that “four winds” of engineered world government “depopulation” will get so severe Christ must arrive at that time to cut them short and “repay tribulation” on them:
(2 Thessalonians 1:6-10) This takes into account that it is righteous on God’s part to repay tribulation to those who make tribulation for you, 7 but, to you who suffer tribulation, relief along with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his powerful angels 8 in a flaming fire, as he brings vengeance upon those who do not know God and those who do not obey the good news about our Lord Jesus. 9 These very ones will undergo the judicial punishment of everlasting destruction from before the Lord and from the glory of his strength, 10 at the time he comes to be glorified in connection with his holy ones and to be regarded in that day with wonder in connection with all those who exercised faith, because the witness we gave met with faith among you.
We see the 8th King world government are the lead engineers in that “make tribulation for you” and everyone in the world to present their world government. But by this time this is the “four winds” under world government being cut short as one whole “end of the system of things”.
Trumpet 1 Temple Judgment First Affirmation
Now, if we continue to step backward through the trumpets the final warning producing recovery is the 5th and 6th trumpets which exposed the 2nd, 3rd and 4th trumpets of apostasy details now present in the JW GB led downward spiral since 1976 to the 1990 3rd UN event cover up and UN NGO definite Daniel 11:31b marker. (Dan11:32a)
Thus, the first trumpet is the Temple judgment symbol which has to occur first and next. The Temple Judgment is Revelation 8:8 which is the symbol of the Revelation 8:3-5 temple judgment modern future events of Daniel 8:13-14 and Zechariah 3:1-5, Malachi 3:1-5 as 1Peter 4:17. Daniel 8:13-14 is also timed for first trumpet event and period affirmation and that will start the whole progression of all seven trumpets wherein the apostasy of Jehovah’s witnesses is exposed first as the final warning ministry is recovered.
Daniel 8:13-14 Timed Temple Judgment Proof of the Future
Daniel 8:13-14 events of JW organization global “trampling” desolations in the Daniel 11:41-43 global context is a 2300 “evenings and mornings” timed prophecy where the total can be 2300 days, 6.38 years, as an “evening and morning” per day. Or the timing may be 1150 days, 3.19 years, as an “evening and morning” each counts per day, 2 per day. So it will be 3.19 years minimum temple judgment, and 3.19 years may be the desolation “evening” phase which may be followed by 3.19 years of the recovery “morning”.
Since the prophecy is rather cryptic we need to pay attention to the timing to transpire after the first notable anti JW Org or anti JW ministry event because the 3.19 year period is to be an affirmable first signal of the active prophecy. In any event the timing will become affirmable because it is the temple judgment verification to aid the inception of the final warning preparing to lead to the final 1260 days and that while the “tribulation of those days” is also activating globally and recognizable.
And that “tribulation of those days” brings us to where this article began as the final warning must be taking part to the point of its cessation into Matt24:29-31 Christ arrival as the event it has all been warning of to be triggered by 8th King world government completion.
