"2012 and Beyond" sample chapters
“For as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37. This is an incomplete Scripture without what follows it. As a result, many have fallen victim to misinterpretation of just what Jesus actually said in these passages of Scripture. For this reason, many believe Jesus said it was impossible to know when He was coming back.
This however is not what Jesus said. Quite the contrary, Jesus was in fact saying just the opposite of what people believe He said in these passages. To understand just what Jesus was saying, one must finish Jesus’ words concerning why it will be as the days of Noah.
The completed quotation is as follows; Matthew 24:38-44 “For as in the days before the flood they (referring to those swept away in the flood; these were non believers) were eating and drinking (sacrifices to demons), marrying and giving in marriage (women marrying devils; “see Genesis 6:1-2), until the day that Noah (and his family) entered into the ark (these were believers who were ready and knew the date of when the flood would occur since God told Noah exactly when He would flood the earth; 120 years from the commission given to Noah to build the ark on the anniversary of the commission which was the anniversary of the Passover feast).
‘And knew not (it was non believers who knew not the time table) until the flood came and took them all (all non believers) away; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be. Then shall two be in the field (this refers to Jesus’ parable of the tares in the field Matthew13 ; Jesus explained the words “the field” to mean the earth Matthew 13:38. Therefore, Jesus is telling us that two shall be in the ground or buried having already died); the one shall be taken (raptured) and the other left to suffer the ravages of the next world wide flood which Jesus will cause (more on this later; God never promised not to flood the whole world again, He merely promised not to kill everyone in the next world wide flood). Genesis 9:15.
'Two women shall be grinding at the mill (studying the scriptures); one shall be taken (raptured), and the other left to suffer the ravages of the next world wide flood). Watch therefore: for you know not at what hour your Lord does come (still referring to those who are non believers; Jesus is mocking those who are non believers in this crowd encouraging them to try to figure out His words to their own destruction).
‘But know this (My children and only My children), that if the Goodman (Jesus is the Goodman) had known (and He does know the approximate hour ) what hour the thief (Jesus’ Father is the thief; “see 2nd Peter 3:10-13” these verses speak of heaven and earth’s destruction by Jesus’ Father to recreate them) was coming, He (Jesus) would have watched (on the Churches behalf) and not have suffered His house (the Church) to be broken up ( He has locked the doors of our salvation).
‘Therefore be ye also ready (like my children will be ready; once again mocking non believers, challenging them to figure out His words); for the Son of Man cometh in such an hour as ye think not (ye non-believers).
Why would I interpret this last part of this passage to be a mockery for non believers? First; because these passages start out by talking about those who were swept away in the flood of Noah. These were non believers. Jesus continues talking about them throughout these passages. He contrasts them with those who are true believers who will know when He is coming to the exact hour. This becomes evident because Jesus goes on to tell us exactly what hour He will come. He goes straight into the parable of the ten virgins.
This parable tells us there was a cry about ‘midnight’ saying, “Behold the bridegroom cometh.” This is one time we need to understand Jesus was being literal. Why? Because He will come as a thief in the night; directly after three days of darkness which Jesus calls the sign of the Son of Man in His Matthew 24 discourse on end times.

Yes, there will be another world wide flood just as in the days of Noah. This will indeed occur as Isaiah 24:1 prophesies. It is the world being turned upside down that will cause this next worldwide flood. God never promised He would not flood the world again. He promised never again to kill all flesh with a worldwide flood. He will keep His promise. He will leave 10% alive in this next world wide flood caused by His tipping the earth over just as Isaiah 24:1 explains.
But I have jumped ahead of myself. Let’s get back to 2012. What will happen in 2012? Jesus’ words above give us our first clue. Jesus told us it would be as the days of Noah just before His next coming. Let’s find out what happened in the days of Noah shall we?
Genesis 6:1-2 tell us that men began to multiply upon the earth and daughters were born unto them. The sons of God (Satan’s devil followers who had left their place of origin which was the earth; more on this later), looked upon the daughters of men and found them to be fair (beautiful).
They took (no mention of these women going willingly) for themselves wives as many as THEY (no mention of the women having a choice) chose. These women were abducted. This produced the Nephilim or giants mentioned in Scripture which were half human half devil.
Notice I did not use the word demon here. A demon is a disembodied devil, the spirit of a deceased devil. Satan was created a fleshly creature just as Adam and Eve were created fleshly beings. This is why Genesis tells us that Satan or the serpent was the craftiest creature of “THE FIELD” that the Lord God (Jesus) had created.
Jesus created Satan in “the field” which Jesus explains to mean “the earth” in the parable of the tares Matthew 13:38. Therefore Satan was created a fleshly being. Isaiah tells us his desire was to ascend above the stars and place his throne there. This means he needed space travel to do so. This is where the UFO phenomena began.
This is what happened in the days of Noah. These devils who had once inhabited the earth returned to it and found another species closely related to them inhabiting earth. They used their advanced technology to fool mankind into believing they were gods which is why Jesus mentions the feasts which are mentioned above. These sacrifices were unto these devils.
These devils came and abducted the women and had sexual relations with them to produce offspring. These became the Nephilim. The crossbreeding of these two species caused untold havoc upon the earth. Violence reached its peak. These Nephilim were cannibalistic giants.
At the time of the flood, there were no pure strain humans left except Noah and his family. This is why God chose Noah to repopulate the earth. This is also why God chose only certain animals to board the ark. There had also been genetic altering in the animal kingdom done by these devils to cause the animal kingdom to become much larger than they had previously been. This was their effort to feed these extremely large offspring of theirs.
This is where the saber tooth tiger, wooly mammoth and other giant species came from. They are not millions of years old as is being taught by today’s scientists in an effort to fool the general public into believing in evolution. These scientists know full well these creatures are not any older than mankind is; less than 6,000 years old.
The genetics of Satan’s race was slightly different than mankind’s which is why they mutated into giants with a lot of hair and six fingers and toes. But the genetics were close enough to cross breed.
Why am I mentioning all this? Because Jesus warned us it would be exactly as the days of Noah just before His return. What this tells me is that there will be a massive worldwide abduction perpetrated by Satan’s descendants who are the inhabitants of these UFOs.
This will counterfeit the rapture of the saints which will occur only after the sign of the Son of Man which occurs at the beginning of the seventh year of the tribulation. This is the danger of preaching two comings of Jesus, one for the Church and one for Israel. Matthew 24 mentions only one sign (for His followers to look for) Jesus calls it the sign of the Son of Man in His Matthew 24 discourse of His one coming. Let’s get our theology straight!
They (the devils) will impregnate women causing another situation where giants will once again roam the earth. This includes the dinosaur, wooly mammoth, saber tooth tiger era. When will all this occur? Get ready as 2012 will be the launching date of all this. This is why the Mayan calendar as well as other calendars including the Jewish calendar do not go beyond the year 2012.
There is knowledge in the world governments that 2012 will see the return of the devils who took over the earth just before the flood in the days of Noah. But the arrival of these beings only begins the corruption of the earth. It will take a few years for things to get into the full swing of corruption.
This then begins a downward spiral of events which will lead up to the anti-Christ’s arrival and subsequent dominion over the earth for a seven year period just prior to Jesus’ return to rapture His own and flood the world destroying those who received the mark of the beast.
Once again, it would do you good to read my book; “Three Days of Darkness and the Coming Flood” available in both printed version; http://www.barnesandnoble.com and digital format for downloading; http://www.smashwords.com which details what the sign of the Son of Man is, and why Jesus left it as the only sign signifying His one and only return.
Without this knowledge it is impossible to understand Jesus’ warning concerning those who would say, “Behold, He is in the desert,” “Behold, He is in the inner chambers.” These words are not spoken by human beings; they are spoken by devils pretending to have come to take you to Jesus. In the words of Jesus Himself, “Go not with them…Believe them not!”
Do not allow those who have led you to believe in two comings of Jesus to blind your eyes to Jesus’ words in Matthew 24. Jesus gave you all you need to know about end time events in Matthew 24. Do yourself a favor and trust Jesus not anyone else to tell you how many times He is coming back. There is only one sign and one coming mentioned in Matthew 24. If Jesus intended two comings, He would have said so in Matthew 24 which was His longest and most explicit explanation of end time events.
The apostles clearly did not know that Jesus had to die and resurrect. Since this is the case, they would never have asked Jesus about His return on their own. This would be the equivalent of children asking their parents when they were coming back from the opera when they had no knowledge that their parents were even going out.
In order for the apostles to have asked this question about the timing of Jesus’ return, they would have had to know about his death and resurrection. This however is not the case. The Scriptures are clear that they had no idea Jesus had to die and resurrect. They did not know He was going away. There was no reason to ask Him when He would return.
Therefore, it is only logical to conclude that it was the Holy Spirit asking the question through the mouths of the apostles concerning Jesus’ return and the sign that would accompany it. This because the apostles had no idea that Jesus was even going away.
Since this is the case, there is no intention to deceive on the part of the Holy Spirit. Which means that the question concerning Jesus’ return has an answer. The question was; “What will be the sign of Thy coming?”
Jesus’ answer to this question becomes His longest speech concerning His return and the need to beware of deceptions. Jesus knew all too well that the last years just before His coming would be filled with erroneous teachings concerning His one and only return.
There are NOT two comings of Jesus. Jesus only mentions one sign and one coming in Matthew 24. He tells us that immediately after the tribulation of those days that the sun, moon, and stars will no longer shine. He was quoting from the book of Isaiah chapter 13.
This is where the Church has made a major blunder. She has not kept Jesus’ words concerning His return pure. Jesus said that the world (this includes the Church) would see the sign of the Son of Man just before Jesus sent His angels to collect the elect from the four winds of heaven, from one end of the earth to the other. Matthew 24:29-31.
There is much to explain in order for you to fully comprehend what Jesus’ words in Matthew 24 actually meant. This involves the meat of the Word of God and how I am straightened until it is imparted to those who will receive it. But let’s get back to how things will unfold.
In today’s world, a great emphasis is being placed upon looking for life and water which supports life on other planets. Truth be known, this is actually nothing more than a smoke screen by science to cover up what they already know. They already know life exists on other planets.
What they will not tell you is that the other life forms on other planets are descendants of Satan. This I believe those at the top know full well. When Satan left the earth to set his plan of conquering God’s throne in heaven, he had to stop off at different planets along the way.
This would be due to the extreme pressures of space travel and the varying differences in gravitational pull along the way. It is comparable to a diver going down hundreds of feet in the ocean. He must stop along the way to allow his body to assimilate the different pressures along the way. Otherwise he would die from the increased pressure building up.
Once a stopping point occurred, the devils left settlers to colonize those planets which they found habitable. This is only a logical conclusion. This is why many UFO abductees are told about star constellations where these creatures (devils) came from. They are not lying about where they came from. However, they will not tell their abductees about their true origin; the earth. Neither will they expose the truth of what they are; Satan’s seed.
Does all this sound too ridiculous to believe? Why? Why is listening to God’s Word telling us that Satan’s desire was to ascend into heaven (if his desire was to ascend he was below before he could ascend) so difficult for you. Did Satan accomplish his goal of reaching heaven? Yes. He speaks to God concerning Job in heaven. How did he get there? Remember his dream was to ascend (go up) to heaven. Yes, he did this through space travel.
Now you may say, “How could something physical enter into heaven?” Well, Jesus is in a physical body and yet is seated at God’s right hand. Furthermore, so are the resurrected Old Testament saints who rose with Jesus. Can you not see that this answers how the sons of God were able to mate with humanity to produce the Nephilim? It also answers the origin of the UFO phenomena and why these vehicles were necessary for Satan to achieve his goal of ascending to heaven.
I find it quite interesting that mankind is following the exact same pattern as Satan to leave earth’s gravitational pull each time he ascends to the heavens. He plants his flags as if he owns the territory he has reached. Unfortunately, mankind was not given these domains. He was given the earth and nothing more by God Almighty. It is a bit presumptuous on his part to think that God is smiling upon his desire to follow in Satan’s footsteps as he ascends into the heavens.
Countless pieces of debris are being left floating in space as man turns God’s creation into a junk yard. I cringe at the concept of what sins man will take with him into the void of space in the future. Is it not enough that mankind has polluted this earth and corrupted its resources?
Nevertheless, this is what has been prophesied in the pages of Scripture. Mankind has followed in the footsteps of Satan’s evil desires and will continue to do so until the return of Jesus to set up His royal kingdom.
But this is only the beginning of what has been prophesied. There are things which have not really been discussed in today’s Churches which should have been. I wonder how long it will be before the leaders of today’s Church world will come around to teaching some of the things within the pages of this book. But let’s get on with our study.
The next chapter will take us into December 21st 2012, and what the world is unprepared to receive as truth concerning this date. This chapter will take us forward into some hitherto unexplored regions.
What can we expect from 2012? I’m glad you asked that question. This will enable me to begin my exhortation. Come with me on a journey if you dare to explore the possibilities behind those Scriptures which hint at a time of chaos and trouble, foretold long ago by the prophets of God.
What I am about to reveal is a very real possibility of how things will actually play out from now till Jesus returns. This hypothesis is taken from Jesus’ words of how things will actually play out according to prophecy. Look to see these things in the near future if my conclusions are correct.
Although I do not believe in looking elsewhere for prophecies, I could not help but notice the Mayan prophecy about 2012. This prophecy tells of a harvesting of souls which will occur on or about December 21st 2012. To Christians, this equates to the promised rapture spoken of in God’s Word.
However, we must look at the source of this prophecy. This prophecy is given by worshipers of false gods who demanded human sacrifice unlike the Christian God who provided for Himself the perfect sacrifice in Jesus Christ. Here we see the difference between what the Mayans were worshipping and what Christians worship.
Jesus’ words of it being as the days of Noah just before He returns take on a whole new meaning if we look at the Mayan prophecy from Jesus’ words prospective. We see the distinct possibility that Satan will pull off the same hoax he pulled off in the days of Genesis 6.
Genesis 6 tells us that the benoi Elohim (sons of God; Satan and his followers) looked upon the daughters of men and found them to be fair. They took (abducted using UFOs) for themselves wives as many as they chose, crossbreeding with these women to produce the Nephilim or giants of the days of Noah and also afterwards. This was the last straw which caused God to destroy all flesh as all flesh had been corrupted from being pure strain human genetically speaking.
God in his mercy spared the few pure strain humans and animals left. This would be Noah and those animals who boarded the ark. This shows that the genetics of man and beast had been greatly corrupted by these devils who were being worshipped as gods at this time in history.
"THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS AND THE COMING FLOOD"
The earth lies in deep darkness; no light shines from the heavens. Panic grips the hearts of men as they dreadfully await the outcome of this phenomena.
No one dares venture outside, they stay indoors in a vain attempt to ward off the evil they know is outside. They hear the gnashing of teeth, the sound of mournful cries. Nerves are shattered and bravery abandoned as they ride out the worst time in earth’s history as they have known it.
Off in the distance another scream; “Oh my God, no, no, no!” Then just as suddenly, silence. Somehow as if instinctively, they summarize their fate. Whatever is out there is hungry for human flesh!
Maybe we should have listened more closely to that raving old lunatic, each one thinks to his or her self. But that old man sounded crazy, ranting and raving at the top of his lungs; “Three days of darkness and God’s Devine judgment!”
He shouted again, “You have asked for a sign, a sign you shall receive!” “The sign of the Son of Man awaits you,” he said. Surely his words and the present situation had nothing in common. Surely this was mere coincidence.
That old gizzard had claimed to be the prophet who was to announce the return of Jesus of Nazareth to claim His rightful place as king of the world. But that was insanity. Still, what if he had been telling the truth all along?
Another scream broke through; “Oh my God, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.“ the words stopped. What if that lunatic was saner than the rest of us? Nah, it couldn’t be.
In between the terror could be heard the songs of praise being sung to God for His great sacrifice of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. How could they be singing at a time like this?
Those insensitive morons. Couldn’t they hear the screams of desperation by their fellow human beings? Surely a God of love could not have sanctioned such a terrible thing as this. Surely He would curse any human who could sing at such a traumatic time in the history of the world.
Anyway, where was God in all this? Why if He exists doesn’t He help? The old fart had quoted from that outdated collection of books he called the Word of God. He had warned mankind to repent and believe on the Son of God whom he believed to be Jesus of Nazareth. Indeed! How could he expect anyone to believe Jesus could still be alive after nearly two thousand years?
Still, he had found somewhat of a following. They were as mad as he was. He had said the Word of God declared a time of judgment just before Jesus’ return. He claimed to know when Jesus was returning. Two thousand years after His ascension into heaven.
When asked why the calendar had passed the year 2000, he sputtered something to the effect that mankind had started the New Testament calendar 33 and a half years too early. He said, they should have started it after the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, not at His birth.
Who did this guy think he was, Changing the calendar? It wasn’t bad enough when the new world leader did it. It took some getting used to. Now he wanted us to go back to the old version, but accept his version that it was off by 33 and one half years, which meant that this present darkness was the actual year 2000. Who could believe such nonsense!
Voices could be heard thanking God for revealing these things to the simple and confounding the wise in their own eyes. Just who did these people think they were! Making merry at a time like this. They were no better than the rest of us. How had they found a way to keep their lights on when the rest of the world lay in total darkness? Though their lights could not be seen by the rest of the world, they did have light or they could not be singing and rejoicing. Who were they to judge the rest of the world?
The animal noises outside were much more ferocious sounding than any animal ever heard of. They sounded like something out of a horror classic only all too realistic. The screams were not fake on the other side of the walls. What, or who, was out there killing and eating human flesh?
The earth had left it’s orbit and been flung into darkness due to the nuclear war which destroyed Iraq. The old buzzard had at least been right about the end results of this nuclear war. He had said Iraq which he called Babylon would be destroyed by nuclear war which would send the earth hurtling through space to a place of darkness. How he knew this was beyond me.
Maybe he held a degree in physics or some such thing. Though that would not explain how he knew it would be the Kurds, whom he called the Medes, who would destroy Iraq. I could not figure this guy out. He had to be crazy, but still I had to admit he had some things right on the money.
The war between the Kurds (Medes) and Iraq (Babylon), had escalated rapidly and unexpectedly. The Kurds said they had a Devine decree to destroy Iraq. Ha, they were as loony as the old man! What was this world coming to? A new beginning with Jesus as it’s king if the old man was to be believed.
According to the old guy, after the world saw three days of darkness, Jesus would return to reclaim what Satan had stolen, the Earth. Jesus would return and gather His children up into the clouds of glory, he said.
This, just before He in a rage, tipped the world upside down, causing another world wide flood like the days of Noah. This was in the Word of God as he called it. This time however, God would not kill everyone due to a promise He made to Noah.
God would however, kill all but 10% based upon another promise made to a man named Abraham who asked God if there were ten righteous to spare two cities named Sodom and Gomorrah. The old man had turned this to mean a percentage prophecy for the next world wide flood God would bring upon the earth. Go figure.
Another worldwide flood? There was no proof of any previous World wide flood. Apparently, this next flood was in one of those books the old guy quoted from. I believe he had said it was in the book of Isaiah chapter 13 if I remembered correctly.
Preposterous! Why was I even thinking about these things? Wait! What’s that light? Could it be the earth has returned to it’s original orbit around the sun? Oh, no! It can’t be! Jesus!!!
The previous scenario was one of countless millions which will be played out by those foolish enough to ignore the prophetic warnings given by the Word of God. I have purposed in my heart not to allow this to happen to any more than is necessary. The truths of God’s Word must be revealed to those who will listen.
I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness; “Make straight the way of the Lord ( preach truth not error ).” “The Lord comes suddenly to His temple.” “His winnowing fork is in His hand, the wheat He will gather into His barn, but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire!”
These are the days of vengeance. The books shall be opened and the dead shall be judged according to their works. Those who had done the good shall reap everlasting life. Those who had done the bad go to everlasting shame and punishment.
Behold, I come quickly as a thief in the night (darkness); and my reward is with me. Be ready therefore with your lamps burning and your wicks trimmed lest coming I should find you sleeping. I am the everlasting light of light, those who find me shall never know darkness. Revelation 3:3, Revelation 22:11-13.
END TIME PROPHECIES CLARIFIED THROUGH
QUESTION AND ANSWERS
Did the apostles understand that I must die and resurrect?” This was the question I heard the Lord ask me as I lay upon my bed in the darkness during the Passover season of 2008 in April.
Stunned, but not surprised that God would use my quiet time to speak to me, I answered Him aloud as is my custom. I told the Lord that the Apostles did not know that He would die and resurrect.
The Lord’s response caused me to freeze up. He asked me if the Apostles did not know He had to resurrect, why then would they even bother to ask Him in Matthew 24 about the sign of His return? They did not know He was going away!
I struggled to find the most logical answer to this enigma. Then it came to me. The Holy Spirit had put the question into their mouths. The Lord told me that I had answered correctly.
The Scriptures were quite clear that the Apostles were told that Jesus would die and resurrect. The Scriptures are also clear that the Apostles understood not what Jesus was talking about.
Matthew 17:22-23 (Jesus reveals death), Apostles grieve but don’t understand. This is the same timeframe as Mark 9:29-32, (Jesus reveals death ), they (the Apostles), understood not and it was hid from them (by God). John 20:6-9 (John believes Jesus has risen), “as yet they understood not the Scripture that He (Jesus) must rise from the dead.”
Since the Apostles did not understand Jesus was going away, they would not have asked this question at all unless the Holy Spirit had put the question in their mouths to ask. If then, the question was asked by the Holy Spirit, it stands to reason that the question is perfectly asked with no errors.
If this is the case, then why is the question singular and not plural if there are indeed two comings of Jesus? One for the Church and one for Israel? The question is; “What will be THE SIGN (singular) of Thy COMING (singular)? Remember, this is the Holy Spirit asking the question not the Apostles. There is no Mistaking the fact that there is only ONE coming mentioned!
Since the Holy Spirit asked the question, there is no deception in the question. Therefore, there is indeed only ONE SIGN the Church should be looking for which will reveal Jesus’ coming.
Jesus repeats this fact when He answers the question. Jesus says that immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days, the sun would be darkened and the moon would not give it’s light and the stars of heaven would fall to the earth.
He completes His answer by saying, that then they (the inhabitants of the earth who rejected Him), would see THE SIGN (singular) of the Son of Man. This does not mean the Church will not experience THE SIGN;
He is singling out the non believers, because it is them that will be the ones to actually experience the judgment of God known as THE SIGN of the Son of Man.
The Church will be spared the judgment, but will know full well what is happening to the non believers at this terrible time of God’s judgment! Matthew 24:29-30.
For you to understand what I am saying, I need to tell you just what THE SIGN of the Son of Man is. I lay there in the dark conversing with the Lord, when the Lord asked me the final series of questions, which shook me to my core as I understood their implications.
Jesus’ warnings about being deceived about His return, began to take on a whole new importance. The Spirit of God was wise to put this question into the mouths of the Apostles as it would be the key to understanding just when Jesus would return, and what would be the key to avoiding deceptions concerning Jesus’ return.
The Lord told me that the Pharisees had asked Him for a sign, that He was the promised Messiah, since He was driving out those who bought and sold in the temple. He replied, “An evil and adulteress generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given it but the sign of Jonah; for as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, so shall the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:39-40.
The Lord next asked me, “Did I not say, ‘I am the light of the world?” I replied “Yes.” “If then, the light of the world went into the center of the earth, what happened to the earth?” I replied, “It went into darkness.” “Yes,” He said, “But for how long?” “For three days and nights.”
“That is correct,” The Lord said. “I gave the Scribes and Pharisees only ONE SIGN that I was the Messiah. Do you think I am going to give the Church a different SIGN?”
His words cut through me like a hot knife as I understood what He was telling me. He was telling me, just what THE SIGN of the SON of MAN was! Three days and nights without light, THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS!
Like lightning, the peace I had been experiencing during our conversation turned to concern. I begged The Lord to verify that it was indeed Him who was talking to me. Just as quickly, to calm me down, the Lord began to give me Scriptures to verify, what He had just revealed to me.
He began by asking me how many hours darkness was over the land of Israel, while He hung on the cross. I answered three.
He asked me if I thought the two might somehow be related, the three days of darkness, and the three hours of darkness over the land of Israel as He hung on the cross. I told him I supposed it could be a smaller version of the same sign. He told me I was correct.
He used a smaller version of a greater truth. The three hours of darkness, were intended to represent the three days the light of the world, would be missing as He lay in the tomb.
I told the Lord He needed to show me more proof that The Sign of the Son of Man was indeed three days of darkness, three days without light. He took me to the Exodus. The final plague upon Egypt, which was the death of the firstborn.
He asked me to tell Him what accompanied the death of the firstborn in the Scriptures. I answered that I was not sure. He told me to grab my Bible and look it up. I did. I almost fell off my bed!
Three days of darkness accompanied the death of the firstborn in Egypt! Exodus 10:21-22. He asked me if I was beginning to see a pattern. I said “Yes.”
I asked the Lord if there were any more proofs in the Scriptures. He replied that I should go to the covenant (contract), He had made with Abraham. I understood, before I even turned my Bible to the page. I remembered asking God as a child, why a terrible darkness would come upon Abraham during a contract uniting him to a holy God. I was about to get my answer, 40 years later!
Abraham had seen THE SIGN of the Son of Man! Genesis 15:8-13. But why?
The Lord explained to me that He showed Pharaoh THE SIGN, because he had asked Moses, for a sign that the Lord was indeed the true God of the universe. Pharaoh had asked Moses, “Who is the Lord that I should obey Him?” Translation, give me a sign that your God is God indeed!” This is the same attitude of the Scribes and Pharisees. Exodus 5:2.
But what about Abraham? Abraham had asked the same question, but with an honest heart before God. Abraham asked God how he could be sure that God was going to give him the land of Canaan. But, he was only being cautious that it was indeed the God of the universe he was talking too. Therefore, God showed him THE SIGN with a heart of Love, rather than a heart full of vengeance. Genesis 15:2-7.
I asked for one more Scripture to confirm that this was indeed THE SIGN of the Son of Man. The Lord told me to Go to Genesis. He asked me, when He had placed the sun and the moon in the heavens to shed light upon the earth? I replied, that it was on the fourth day. He asked me, “Then how long was the earth in darkness?” “Three days,” I said. “Right again,” the Lord said.
“But you said, ‘Let there be light,” and there was light, I said. “Yes, but I also explain, that I separated the light from the darkness. I did not permit the light to enter the darkness for three days, in order that honor might be shown for the death and resurrection which was to come to pay for mankind’s sin. I put a barrier between the light and the darkness. So, now do you understand that THE SIGN of the Son of Man is three days without light, three days of darkness?”
“Yes,” I said.
Then it came to me, and I shuddered as I lay upon my bed. I realized that there was only going to be ONE coming of Jesus. It needed to be preceded by the ONE AND ONLY SIGN spoken of by Jesus himself. The sun would grow dark and the moon would not give it’s light, and the stars of heaven would fall to the earth.
The stars falling to the earth, would be what appeared to be happening as the earth was hurled through space leaving the orbit around the sun, being flung into a place of darkness just as had happened in the beginning of Genesis 1:2.
This, would start the countdown to Jesus’ return, which would occur THREE DAYS LATER!

I have hidden the truth like a well hidden treasure. I have spoken in riddles too hard to explain. I have shown you a mystery you won’t understand, till the appointed time comes when I give you a hand. It’s always been there in front of your eyes, but those who have led you have filled you with lies. It’s time for the truth oh don’t you agree, Put on your ears and listen to Me. Stop listening to men who are not Spirit led, and open your hearts to Him whom you’ve wed. The Savior of all whom the Father has loved, whom this world has hated, has pushed and has shoved. I think you’ll agree with God and with me, it’s only the truth which makes the blind see. So gather ye ‘round and see what I’ve found, my doctrine is pure and holy and sound. You may not have heard, you may not have seen, but trust what I say, it’s on God that I lean. Why settle for lies half truths with no couth, the time for lies has ended: it’s time for the truth.
Then God said, “ Let Us make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”
"So God created mankind in His image, in the image of God created He him; MALE AND FEMALE created He them.”
These Scriptures give us three things we are intended to find with God’s help. The first, is the origin of man. The second is the position or authority of man. The third, not so easily found, is the reason for man’s creation as well as all creation. It is this third thing which shall be addressed in this book.
Whether or not you agree with the conclusions drawn in this book, will depend on two major factors; the first, is your ability to understand spiritual matters, the second, is your willingness to allow previous childish thinking to give way to mature understanding in the things of God. By the time you finish reading this book, your understanding will have been increased to a new level of maturity if you allow yourself to be taught. Let’s take a fresh look at some very old Scriptures okay?
The Word of God is both intricate and simple, straight forward and mysterious. God uses puns, play on word techniques, hidden codes based on numbers which are meant to be understood as types and shadows of things to come. These things are rolled up tightly and neatly within the Scroll of Truth. If we accept that God did not make all mystery easy to understand, we stand a better chance at unraveling certain mysteries meant for the tenacious to understand. Of these Scriptures Peter the Apostle wrote in 2nd Peter 3:15-16 speaking of the mysteries which Paul the Apostle had written down in his letters to the Church. These Scriptures were said to be hard to understand and many men would wrestle with these Scriptures to their own destruction.
This is speaking not of the Church which cannot be forsaken by God, but of those who would preach things not said by God but rather would become confused and thereby preach falsehood in God’s name. While most attribute this to what is called cults today, there is a large number of professing Christians who have fallen into this category of misinterpreting or rather misrepresenting the Word of God.
They preach many things contrary to the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, even though they recognize Him as the Son of God. I’ll deal with this issue a little later in this book.
It is for this cause that I will attempt to give the outline for my conclusions in an orderly and easy to understand fashion. At the very least, you will understand how I have come to my conclusions even if you disagree with them. Let’s start at the beginning shall we? It’s as good a place as any and probably the best place to start.
My goal is to bring the reader to full maturity in understanding many difficult passages within the Scriptures. I will attempt to give you the reader the benefit of many hours of study inside of a few hours of reading. This is my goal, this is my wish. God bless you the reader, may He give you His Wisdom.
Elohim is the first word used for God in the Scriptures. It is a plural word. It would not be wrong to interpret this word as meaning “ the God’s. ’’ Many cringe at this interpretation fearing that it implies more than one God. This is not the case. This is merely the first mention of the one true God. This is the first hint at the trinity.
“In the beginning, the God’s created the heavens and the earth.’’ Genesis 1:1.
This then begins our journey as we seek to unravel the picture which God has laid out before us to understand. Your understanding of who God is will be greatly enhanced if we can get you over this first hurdle in the race to find a relatively simple truth hidden in a rather complex matrix.
Let God explain God and you will be quite surprised at what you will find.
God gives us another clue to Himself in Genesis 1:26; “ Let Us make mankind in Our image. ’’ Once again we see plurality associated with our God. This concurs with the opening Scripture and the use of the word Elohim. But just what is God saying to us?
God the Father is speaking to someone else other than Himself when He makes this statement concerning creating mankind in their image. The real question is, to whom is God the Father talking? If you ask this question to the average leader of today’s Church world, they tell you that God was speaking to His Son Jesus. This however cannot be the case for one very important reason. This statement about creating mankind in God’s image is not the end of God’s statement.
God goes on to say that He intends to give mankind rule over all the earth bound creatures. This statement made by God is not a conditional statement. Therefore, it cannot be speaking of natural man who is sinful. For God would never give unconditional rule to a sinful creature. Therefore, this unconditional rule which God the Father intended to give was not to natural man, but rather was a prophecy concerning Christ and the Church.
If therefore, this statement concerning giving rule over the earth to mankind was the Father speaking to Jesus, it really does not make sense. Since God is telling this other person that they together give their image dominion. This would mean Jesus was going to create His own image and then give it dominion. This is absurd. The most logical answer to the mystery of who God was talking to, is that God the Father was talking to the Holy Spirit concerning making Christ Jesus and His bride the Church in the image of God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.
We can see this to be true by many Scriptures which tell us that the dominion of the earth is to be handed over to Christ and the saints. Daniel 7:22 “ …and the saints possessed the kingdom ( earth ). Matthew 25:34 “ …inherit the kingdom prepared for you by My Father from the foundation of the earth.”
The Scriptures declare Jesus to be the image of the invisible God ( the Father ). Hebrews 1:2. We also see that the Church is called the bride of Christ. This is the other half of mankind which God said would be made in His image. Therefore, it would behoove us to try to understand the Church makes up the second half of the image of God.
God gives us the answer in Genesis 1:27; “ So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God created He him; MALE AND FEMALE created He them.” This is not as many believe a simple statement telling us that God created both genders. This is an amazing declaration by God Himself telling us that His image is both Male and Female. Any other interpretation would be a blatant misrepresentation of what God Himself has declared in His Devine Word.
God is telling us that Jesus is the image of the Father while the Church is the other half of the image of God which is the female gender. The Church is the image of the Holy Spirit! Why would I say such a thing. Because it needs to be said. The Scriptures prove this statement to be true.
Revelation 1:12 pictures the church as seven golden candlesticks. Revelation 1:20 confirms this to be true. But the question is why? Why is the Church sevenfold? The answer is given to us in Revelation 4:5. …” and I saw seven lamps of fire burning before the throne (of God the Father ) which are the SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD ( the Holy Spirit ).
Do you see it? The Holy Spirit is sevenfold just like the Church. This is the other half of God
