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
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 Christs
birth was not mentioned in Scripture, but the
wise men figured it out!

and The Omega.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 Gods
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.
