The General Index of the Seven Trumpets

 

If you would like to examine the four rules of interpretation used in this commentary, please review “Notes and Comments on Chapter 1,” pp.21-30 in my book, Daniel Unlocked for the Final Generation, or you can freely download this chapter at http://www.wake-up.org/Daniel/DanChap1.htm.

 

I have found that one of the best ways to offer Bible commentary is to insert a few words or phrases into those portions of Scripture that is being discussed. This is not an attempt to neither translate nor change Scriptures. Rather, it is an attempt to be as direct as possible. This technique often accelerates understanding. Therefore, you will find my words, notes, and phrases throughout this study enclosed in brackets []. 

 

Bible prophecy does not always explicitly state important dates, but through Bible prophecy, we can determine these dates. For example, 457 B.C., A.D. 30, 1798, and 1844 are not explicitly mentioned in Scripture, but these dates are very important. In another case, the date of Christ’s birth was not mentioned in Scripture, but the wise men figured it out!

 

For further discussion on the Table of the Presence, see pages 185-189 in my book, Jesus, The Alpha and The Omega.

 

The word “sacrifice” in Daniel 12: 11,12 is not in the Hebrew text. Well-meaning translators supply it. However, the word “sacrifice” is misleading. A better choice would have been the word “service.”

 

To be proper, this angel serves as a priest to Jesus. Jesus alone, as our High Priest, authorizes the casting down of the censer. Given the nature of this special service, it does not seem likely that an angel would presume to throw down the censer of his own accord. The text in question is Revelation 8:3-5.

 

The seven heads represent Atheism, Heathenism, Judaism, Islam, Eastern Mysticism, Catholicism, and Protestantism. See the chapter, “The Four Beasts of Revelation,” for more details. Some people claim that Atheism is not a religion, but I maintain that it qualifies as one of the seven religious systems of the world. I state it this way because Atheism truly is a faith-based church system. Atheism believes there is no God. Some people have argued that Atheism insists on the separation of church and state. Historically, this premise is not sustainable. Wherever Atheism controls government, it does not permit the free exercise of any other religion. Atheism is the religion of the state. Atheistic governments behave like a church-state government because they are a church-state government.

 

This etching will be a non-removable, non-transferable tattoo on the right hand. A tattoo is a charagma. A story that runs parallel to the mark of the beast is told in Ezekiel 9. Although this story did not actually take place, the concept of separating people according to a mark (etching) was presented to Ezekiel in a vision.

Jeremiah 3:16 indicates that under the covenant with the nation of Israel (Plan A), a time would come when the Ark of the Covenant “would not be missed” and another Ark “would not be made.” This prediction pointed forward to the arrival of Messiah and the establishment of the kingdom of God on Earth that did not occur. Instead, a new covenant was established and “Plan B” was put into motion. If “Plan A” had been fulfilled, the Ten Commandments would have been written in the hearts and minds of God’s children. (Ezekiel 36:24-27) Since the Ark of the Covenant had no further purpose on Earth after “Plan A” was abandoned, since God shows the Ark of the Covenant from Heaven at the seventh trumpet, and since there is only one Ark containing the original Ten Commandments, I conclude that Jesus took it to Heaven for safekeeping after He returned to Heaven.
