51 Corporate & Individual Forgiveness
The understanding of corporate and individual forgiveness is one of the major keys to the understanding of the story of prophecy, and human ignorance is one of God's methods used to seal the words of the prophecy. When Jesus terminates His intercession at the golden altar in Revelation 8:2-6 'corporate intercession' ends for the entire world, but individual intercession continues. Daniel never uses the word he uses the words 'the daily,' which refers to intercession. In this great story when Daniel uses the word 'daily' you know that Jesus is interceding or terminating intercession, and know whether it is corporate or individual intercession by time.

52 Antitypical Day of Judgment
The word ‘antitypical’ means ‘in place of.’ The Day of Atonement in the earthy sanctuary was an acting out, like ‘a puppet show’ using live people to explain how God will judge the world at the set time by cleansing the sanctuary. The cleansing of the sanctuary is how God removes sin from our lives and is able to treat us as though we never sinned.

The First Two Steps: Choose Two Goats and Slay the Lord’s

The priest choose one goat for Satan (Azazel) and the other goat for the Lord to die for all Israel.

53 Sprinkling the Blood on the Atonement Cover
Third Step: Sprinkling the Blood on the Atonement Cover
The priest takes the blood and sprinkles it on the atonement cover. The act of sprinkling the blood on the atonement cover was saying, ‘Here is the blood – the debt is paid; sinners are dead.’ The Law of God is satisfied
‘for the wages of sin is death’ (Romans 6:23).

54 Put Blood on the Horns of the Golden Altar Cleansing It
Four Step: Put Blood on the Horns of the Golden Altar Cleansing It.
Then the priest would go into the Holy Place and put blood on the horns of
golden altar, cleansing Israel corporately for the entire year. The people would be outside praying to God, thanking Him for His goodness and forgiveness, and praying that the priest did everything correctly so that the Atonement for Israel was accepted. The Day of Atonement was very serious business. Israel did not understand that this service was only ‘a type’ of judgment, or a puppet show using real people to explain what God would do for REAL. The book of Daniel was sealed; therefore this show that took place every year was very serious to them, that is, a matter of life and death eternally.

55 Putting Blood on the Horns of the Altar of Burnt Offering and Cleansing It
Fifth Step: Putting Blood on the Horns Altar of Burnt Offering Cleansing It.

Then the priest would go out of the Tent of Meeting and put blood on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, cleansing the sins of every individual that came in asking for forgiveness {individual forgiveness}. Note: the three things that Aaron made atonement for {1} the Most Holy or the atonement cover, {2} the Tent of Meeting or the golden altar, and {3} the altar of burnt offering

56 The Priest Grabs the Horns of Azazel Confessing All Israel's Sins
Leviticus 16:20,21 ‘When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place [atonement cover], the Tent of meeting or the [golden altar] and the altar [altar of burnt offering], he shall bring forward the live goat. He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites – all their sins – and put them on the goat’s head.

57 A Man of Good Report Leads the Goat into the Desert to Die
When we confess and repent of our sins God forgives us because Satan is the originator and perpetuator of sin. He has led millions to rebel against God over the history of the world. Satan loves sin, so God lays all the sin of the world upon him, with all its consequences, which is eternal death. All those who die in Christ, having lived a life of daily prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to living within their hearts, are cleansed of all their sins, including the carnal nature, and are sealed with the nature of Jesus. When each of us wakes up on the resurrection of life we will have no desire for sin. Sin will be absolutely horrible to us. Jesus will have recreated us with all together lovely character that was given so freely to Adam. Everyone will have the freedom of choice and we will have perfect hatred for sin.

58 The Judgment of the World, the Cleansing of the Sanctuary
We have learned that our sins are forgiven because Jesus died as our substitute. You should have also learned that nothing you have done in your life has any merit in saving you. Each person is saved by faith in Jesus alone. We also learned that as we confess our sins they are transferred to the sanctuary to be cleansed. If you live carelessly thinking you are just as good as the next guy and neglect or reject the pleading of the Holy Spirit that leads everyone to repentance, you will be lost. The date that God chose to judge each person and cleanse the sanctuary of each person’s sins was set before the world began as 1844 AD or two thousand three hundred years from the date the Medo-Persian King, Artaxerxes, signed the decree to release Israel to go home and finish rebuilding Jerusalem. Beginning in 1844 Jesus reviewed the life of Abel, the first person to die, and Abel’s sins were cleansed from the sanctuary because of his faith in the Saviour; thus Abel was sealed with eternal life. Then Jesus opened the books of the next person’s life and so forth down through the centuries of time sealing some with eternal life and condemning others with eternal death.

59 Judgment of the dead
Acts 17:31 “Because He has appointed a day which he will judge the world in righteousness by the man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him [Jesus] from the dead.” A person is judged after he dies because death ends each person’s ability to do any more good or evil.
[view]
60 Judgment of the Living
Jesus causes the Great Tribulation to judge the living. The crisis of the tribulation reveals the character of each person, like developing film. During the tribulation good people will be kind to their fellowmen, sharing what they have; trusting in God to save them, but evil people will lie, steal, and kill to survive. Every person that worships God falls short in his daily life of being perfect. The life and death of Jesus is each believer’s substitute. This means Jesus gives those that trust in Him the record of His life to their account and His altogether lovely nature; thus cleansing each person of the carnal nature. When Jesus wakes up the billions of sleeping saints that have died since the time of righteous Abel, they come forth from their graves in the image of God that was freely given to Adam. Each person wakes up with the altogether lovely nature of Christ, but still has their individual personality. Just as each rose is unique to itself, each person has his own unique personality, except there are no thorns.

61 Human Righteousness

Many people believe that when you die, they go to heaven if they are a good person.  Every average citizen that lives a good life believes he is just as good as his neighbor. When the average good person looks at the life of Sister Teresa, they think everyone has to be as good as her or there’s going to be a lot of people in hell. These people think God weighs the good against the bad, and then, out of mercy, winks at the bad and lets you into heaven – after all no one’s perfect – well except for One. God does not think like we do, and He does not judge anyone based upon good deeds of humans. The Bible teaches that God looks upon our best goodness as filthy rags.  The good things we do have no merit in God’s decision to grant us eternal life – everybody is saved through faith in Jesus. God gives righteousness as a gift. There is nothing we do to earn salvation. Furthermore it is an insult to God to offer an ‘improvement’ over the life and death of His Son.  The payment Jesus has made for each of us far exceeds the bill. The life of Jesus is infinitely more valuable than millions of worlds.

62 Eternal Life
Ephesians 2:8-10 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift of Godnot by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do a good works, which prepared in advance for us to do. Abraham chose to follow and worship God many years before his test of sacrificing his son Isaac. If Abraham had refused to obey God, he would have lost his blessing of seeing the Messiah and growing spiritually. Abraham obeyed God because he trusted Him, way beyond his own emotions and human reasoning. Abraham did not understand why God asked him to slay his only son, but he believed in God. Abraham was not saved by works, but his works were proof that he trusted God more than his own thoughts, and way beyond the limits of most people. God did not ask Abraham to kill his son. Life of Isaac came from God, and God was asking Abraham to return the life back to God. Abraham trusted God so completely that he was willing to slay Isaac believing God would raise him from the dead.

63 Sealing the 144,000 Servants of God
Revelation 7:3-4 ‘Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. The subject of the 144,000 has been discussed as long as I can remember, always ending about the same as it started with many questions. Is the 144,000 literal? John said, ‘I heard the number.’ So what is the problem? Many think because there are only 144,000 that are sealed that this is the total number of the living people saved when Jesus comes, but this is so few compared to the seven billion people living on earth that it is rejected by most.  Then the great multitude that no man can number seems like too many people to be saved when Jesus comes; so most people believe this is the total of the people saved goes back to the time of Adam. The 144,000 are sealed before the Great Tribulation begins as God’s evangelists. They are the servant – prophets that give the four angel’s messages to this dying world. Their messages are put into their mouths by God Himself and they will be hated and killed by this wicked world because of their testimony to the Word of God. The great multitude that no man can number is the harvest of their labor. The great multitude goes through the entire tribulation and sees Jesus come in the clouds of heaven. There are over one billion people that live to see Jesus come without seeing death.  In a nutshell literal Israel and the Gentiles failed to take the gospel to the world. Only about one-third of the seven billion or a little more than two billion know anything about our wonderful God and His Son Jesus, and the other five billion don’t know and many of them don’t really want to know! Jesus is personally picking His 144,000 servants from every nation in the world to finish the work of evangelism during the Great Tribulation that will begin very soon. The 144,000 servants are firstfruits of the main harvest; thus the main harvest is a mirror of the 144,000.

64 Living in the Present 'Delay'
Revelation 7:2-3 Then I saw another angel [Jesus] coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until [the delay] we put a seal on the foreheads of servants of our God.” The ‘Delay’ Jesus created by halting the four angels from hurting the earth occurred in 1994. We are presently living in the time of extra grace called the ‘delay.’ In 1994 A.D. seven angels in Revelation 8:2 were given seven trumpets in preparation to hurt the earth, sea, and trees, but Jesus halted the four angels from releasing the four winds that were about to blow the first four trumpets. The ‘delay’ in 1994 A.D. was planned before the foundation of the earth to intentionally let the last generation know they are very close to the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

65 And another angel [Jesus] came and stood at the altar
Jesus was at the altar of Incense, He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar [that stands] before the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints [their petitions], went up before God [a very sweet aroma filled the court] from the angel’s hand. The Bible says that “all” of the saints (God’s children everywhere) are petitioning God when Revelation 8:3-5 occurs. The only thing that could move all of God’s children at the same time, as religiously diverse as we are, is a global crisis.
[view]
66 In 1994 Four Angels were Sent to Earth to Sound Their Trumpets
So, the four angels in Revelation 7:1-3 have been waiting to hurt Earth for several years. We know they are waiting because (a) the five phenomena described in Revelation 8:3-7 have not occurred at any time in history, and (b) the first four trumpets judgments have not yet fallen. Therefore, the four angels in Revelation 7 are patiently waiting for the service described in Revelation 8:3-5 to occur.
[view]
67 Stop, first we need to seal God's servants
In 1994 A.D the first four of the seven angels that had been given the seven trumpets were about to release the four winds to blow the first four trumpets when Jesus ‘called out in a loud voice to the angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” The destruction by the first four trumpets were delayed to seal the 144,000 servants that will finish the job that both Israel and the Gentiles failed to do; thus we are living in an extra time of grace that can end at any time.
[view]
68 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds
If Jesus had started the Great Tribulation in 1994 A.D. the tribulation would have already been over, but the number of people saved would have been far less. Sorrow, disease, suffering, and death would be no more and we would be enjoying eternal life like the twenty-four elders, Moses, Elijah, and Enoch in heaven. So now we are waiting for Jesus to finish sealing the 144,000 servants of God that will evangelize the entire world in three and a half years. As soon as Jesus finishes sealing the 144,000 servant-prophets the first four trumpets will destroy one-third of our earth warning the inhabitants that God is shutting this world down in 1,335 days {Daniel 12:11-12}.

69 The Sounding of the First Four Trumpets, the Opening of the Fourth Seal
The first 890 days of God’s early wrath begins with the opening of the fourth seal – this is the sounding off the first four trumpets. It will begin in the near future with the termination of ‘the daily’ intercession of Jesus at the golden altar that began six thousand years ago in the Garden of Eden after Adam and Even sinned. When Jesus terminates ‘the daily’ the fourth seal is opened, which causes death to twenty-five percent of the world’s population in less than thirty days {Revelation 8:7-12}. This will not be seen on television – you will witness these events with your own eyes.

70 In 1994 Seven Angels were given Seven Trumpets
God begins His new year at the first full moon after the vernal equinox in the Spring that is sometime during our March/April. In 1994 the seven angels of Revelation 8:2 were given seven trumpets sometime during that year. 1994 is established by the understanding of ‘the great day’ of seventy ‘weeks’ in Daniel 9:24. The seventy ‘sevens’ of Daniel 9:24 is ‘a part’ of the great week representing ‘the whole week.’ There are exactly two great days counting backwards from Artaxerxes decree in 457 B.C. to the Exodus of Israel in 1437 B.C. or nine hundred eighty years. The 2,300 years of Daniel 8:14 continues the counting of time from Artaxerxes decree in 457 B.C. to 1844 A.D. that began the cleansing of the sanctuary or the judgment of the world. The date of 1844 forces the Jubilee Calendar to continue down through the centuries to the seventh great day ending in 1994 A.D.

71 Jesus Intercedes at The Golden Altar
Revelation 8:3-6 Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of the saints, on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, flashes of lightening and an earthquake. Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them. There is one possibility that could cause all of God’s saints to pray the same thing at the same time, namely, nuclear war. Here is a possible scenario. One day, simmering hostilities could erupt and quickly escalate into a nuclear exchange. Tens of millions could die in this war. This war could affect our struggling economy and immediately affect the distribution of oil, food, clothing, building materials, and commerce of all kinds. If nations joined in, this war could quickly become a fearful event for most people on Earth. If such a war occurred – and the global consequences would be far reaching – the whole world would cry out (demand) “peace and safety.” In other worlds, a nuclear exchange could bring all of God’s people to the point of praying for God’s intervention.

73 The First Four Angels Sound Four Trumpets
The first four trumpets will come in a group of four rapid-fire judgments. I understand that these four judgments could fall over a period of about sixty days. These four judgments will occur in their started order. Four distinctive blows will produce unimaginable death and destruction. They will change the thinking and priorities of mankind overnight. The death and destruction left in their wake will be incalculable, and amazingly, all of this global upheaval will be cause by a team of only four angels! It is a gross understatement to say the whole world will be in shambles by the time the fourth trumpet judgment has been executed. If actions speak louder than words, the first four trumpets will speak volumes. Jesus has much to say to this diverse world. To get everyone’s attention, He will send a display of power and destruction that will silence the din of war and the defiance of skeptics. Keep in mind that Jesus display of power and destruction will not be a temper tantrum. Jesus will not smash and trash the world in a random way. His display of wrath is carefully designed to accomplish many objectives and one of them is to prompt a unified response from mankind.

74 Burning Hail on Wicked Cities
Trumpet #1.  Shortly (perhaps 30 days) after the first global earthquake, showers of white-hot hailstones will rain down from the sky. Meteoric firestorms will ignite unquenchable fires all over the world and the accompanying windstorms will destroy billions of acres of trees, food crops and vegetation within a few days. Of course millions of people will be left homeless and many others will suffer and die during this “rain of terror.” (Revelation 8:7)
[view]
75 Burning Asteroid Causes Tsunamis
Trumpet #2.  A few days after the meteoric showers of burning hail, Earth will experience two horrific asteroid impacts. The first asteroid will impact an ocean; the second will impact a continent. (Revelation 8:8-11) The first impact will create a series of tidal waves that will inundate coastal cities around the perimeter of the ocean. Seaports and coastal cities, well known for their immoral behavior, will completely disappear with overwhelming loss of life. Survivors will be frightened and distressed by the angry tossing of the sea. (Luke 21:25) Ships will not be able to cross the ocean and men will be powerless to do anything about the churning of the deep

76 One-Third of the Ocenas Destroyed
Trumpet #2.  A few days after the meteoric showers of burning hail, Earth will experience two horrific asteroid impacts. The first asteroid will impact an ocean; the second will impact a continent. (Revelation 8:8-11) The first impact will create a series of tidal waves that will inundate coastal cities around the perimeter of the ocean. Seaports and coastal cities, well known for their immoral behavior, will completely disappear with overwhelming loss of life. Survivors will be frightened and distressed by the angry tossing of the sea. (Luke 21:25) Ships will not be able to cross the ocean and men will be powerless to do anything about the churning of the deep

77 Asteroid Poisons One-Third of the Water
Trumpet #3.  The second asteroid will impact one of Earth’s continents with devastating results. The impact will contaminate water supplies and cause extensive death. Ground waves from the impact will fracture geologic strata for thousands of square miles. Sewage, deadly bacteria, toxic chemicals and other garage buried in the Earth will seep into underground aquifers. Underground rivers will become contaminated and they will carry their deadly mixture for thousands of miles. Revelation predicts that many people will die of drinking poisonous water.
[view]
78 One Third of the Sky Darkened
Trumpet #4.  Shortly after the second asteroid impact, the world will hear a terrible roar. Hundreds of powerful violent volcanic eruptions will occur. These will be numerous and powerful and cause great damage. Millions of people will perish. Revelation predicts there will be great darkness. (Revelation 8:12) The jet stream will carry megatons of volcanic ejecta and soot around the world in dense clouds that cause complete darkness. Scientists have observed this phenomenon in recent times. The extended absence of sunlight over the middle third of Earth (the breadbasket of the world) will prevent surviving crops from reaching maturity. Worldwide famines will begin. In short, the first four judgments will create a horrible domino effect radiating into every aspect of life. Illness of all kinds will appear. Clean water and food will become scarce over-night and the misery index will be “off the scale.” According to Revelation, 25% of Earth’s population will perish from these four judgments. (Revelation 6:8) Think about this. The population of Earth currently is approaching 7 billion people. Twenty-five percent of seven billion is one billion seven hundred fifty million people!

79 Global Crisis Caused by the First Four Trumpets
The first four trumpets of destruction are targeted at wicked cities all over the world. This occurs because Jesus has ended pleading His blood for the world corporately. The people killed were given many opportunities to repent, but like the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah they refused to repent because they loved sin.  Jesus also put some of His children to sleep because they are too weak to go through the Great Tribulation. Jesus continues His intercession before the Father for individuals at altar of burnt offering; this is the second level of atonement. There is no further atonement for the world corporately at the golden altar.

80 The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
John 16:8 When he [Holy Spirit] comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of Truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you. The Holy Spirit brings strong conviction to people in every tongue, nation, and country in the world to repent of their sins from the very beginning of the Great Tribulation. The two witnesses have always been the Law of God and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.  The awesome supernatural convicting power of the Holy Spirit begins at the opening of the fourth seal and continues until the end of the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation. The Holy Spirit brings conviction to the hearts of every unrepentant sinner to the point of ‘mental torment’ and then on the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation the conviction ends. Everyone who refused to repent has blasphemed the Holy Spirit – and committed the unpardonable sin. The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is unpardonable because there is nothing left that God can do to save the wicked without violating their free will {Mark 3:29}. God gives the final generation more light and conviction to the truth than any other generation, but the wicked love sin and hate the truth.
