The Hour of God’s Judgment

The Former Rain Is for Righteousness

Zechariah prophesied the renewal of New Jerusalem, saying, “The Lord will again comfort Zion, and I will again choose Jerusalem … My Word will be a wall of fire around her, and I will dwell in her midst.” The Word is the Spirit of Christ, the dwelling place of the Spirit of God.

Hosea prophesied the return of the Spirit of God, saying, “He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.”

The first outpouring of the Spirit of God was described in Chapter 2 of the Song of Songs. Solomon’s bride said, “Lo the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.” The spring rain was the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that began the engagement year of Christ and His Bride.

In Israel, there are two rains. The former rain appears at the end of the year and represents the end-time outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The prophet Joel said, “He has given you the former rain for righteousness.” The former rain is sent to remove lawlessness from the Kingdom of Heaven.

Jesus said that when the Spirit of Truth comes, “it will convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.”

Jesus described the Father as the vinedresser who takes away every branch that does not bear fruit. The Spirit of God is sent to sanctify His Church.

The outpouring of the Spirit of God brings the hour of God’s judgment to those who worship the image of the beast and receive his mark.

The Glory of the Lord Came from the East

In the beginning of the 20th century, many believers in the West were hoping for a Pentecostal revival, but the Bible prophesied that the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit would begin in the East.

In Jesus’ day, Zechariah 6:12 was translated as “Behold, a man whose name is the East! He shall build the temple of the Lord.”

Ezekiel said, “Behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the East. His voice was like the sound of many waters.” This is the sound of many waters we hear throughout the Book of Revelation, the sound of the end-time Sanctified Church.

In Chapter 47, Ezekiel described the water flowing on the right side, south of the altar, that became deeper and deeper as it moved east and south of Jerusalem. When we look at the world, it is easy to see where it is going. The first outpouring of the Holy Spirit was to the north and west of Jerusalem, and the final outpouring is to the east and south of Jerusalem.

The apostle Peter said the gift of the Holy Spirit would be given to “as many as are far off.” He was quoting from Isaiah 49:12, which reads, “Surely these shall come from afar, Look! Those from the north and the west and these from the land of Sinim.” The outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the apostolic time was to the north and the west, but the end-time outpouring of the Holy Spirit is in “the land of Sinim,” which is normally interpreted as China.

In the apostolic age, the Holy Spirit led the apostles to Europe and prevented them from preaching in Asia. This was described in Acts 16:6, “Now, when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia.” This was the plan of God. The first preaching of the Gospel was to the north and west of Jerusalem. The Church of the end days will be from the East.

Their Doorpost Was Beside My Doorpost

Ezekiel told us why God was unable to pour out His Holy Spirit on the churches of the West. God said, “Their doorpost was beside My doorpost, and there was a wall between them and Me.”

God’s house was not built according to His instructions.

The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Truth. The Bible gives us four conditions that must be met for the Church to receive the Spirit of God:

  • The Church must keep the commandments of God. We find this in Acts 5:32, 1 John 3:22 and 5:2, Revelation 12:17 and 14:12, Matthew 7:21, and 1 Corinthians 7:19.
  • The Church must obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ outlined in His 12 “if not” conditions of salvation. These include the washing of the feet and the imitation of the Father “in like manner.”
  • The Church must baptize in the Name of Jesus.
  • The Church must listen to the teachings of the apostles. The elementary teachings of salvation were listed by the writer of Hebrews as “instructions in baptisms [or washings] and the laying on of hands [for the gift of the Holy Spirit].” The instructions in baptisms were not listed by the writer, but in A.D. 150, Justin Martyr wrote, “We lead them to a place where there is water, and they are regenerated in the same manner in which we were regenerated.” Then he described the need to wash completely and “the command to remove the shoes” — the washing of the feet that followed baptism.

The requirement to follow the pattern exactly was dramatically illustrated in Exodus 39 and 40. God gave the Israelites precise instructions for the building of the tabernacle. After they built it according to God’s instructions, “the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tent.”

The prophet Ezekiel described the exact measurements for the third temple, the Church of God. After it was built in accordance with all of God’s instructions, “the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the East.”

Silence for about Half an Hour

Before the Holy Spirit was poured out in the early 20th century, there was “silence in heaven for about half an hour,” as described in Revelation 8:1.

This silence in heaven for half an hour refers to the silence of the martyrs who cried out in heaven in the fifth seal of Revelation 6.

The first four seals were four horses given “authority over a fourth of the earth to kill with the sword and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.” Europe was a fourth of the earth and the extent of Christianity until the 16th century.

That brings us to the fifth seal, where the martyrs on thrones cried out “with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’”

The resurrection of the martyrs began when the saints escaped from the hand of the bishop of Rome, in 1471. They were “given a white robe and told to rest until the number of their brethren to be killed … was completed.” Their deaths ended with the Thirty Years War, in which a third of the population of Germany died. The Peace of Westphalia was signed in 1648. After this, the martyrs stopped ascending to heaven, and “there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”

“An hour” is understood to be about 500 years, and half an hour is about 250 years, which brings us from 1648 to 1917, when fire from the altar was thrown down to the Earth, as described in Revelation 8:5.

The fire poured out in 1917 was the same fire that Christ poured out on the day of Pentecost: the Holy Spirit sent to “convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.”

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit marked the beginning of the “hour of God’s judgment” and answered the cry of the martyrs.

The Prayers of the Saints

The second outpouring of the Holy Spirit came in the year 1917. As on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was poured out after the prayers of the saints ascended to God. This was described in Revelation 8: “Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer, and much incense was given to him so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints.”

The angel who intercedes for us is Christ, the Angel who continually appears throughout the Book of Revelation.

At the end of the 19th century, the saints were praying for the gift of the Holy Spirit, and many believed that they had attained it. In 1896, more than 100 Protestants prayed earnestly at the Shearer Schoolhouse Revival. After much prayer, it was said that “a number were speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

On the last day of 1900, Charles Parham asked the students at his Bible College to pray for the gift of the Holy Spirit. The next day, Agnes Ozman, who knew only English, began to speak in Chinese. Witnesses said that a halo surrounded her face and her head as she began to speak and write in Chinese. Other students also began to speak in tongues, and they believed they also received the gift of the Holy Spirit.

By 1906, the Pentecostal experience had reached the Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles, where 13,000 people spoke in tongues. In 1908, the Apostolic Faith Mission sailed to China, where Bernt Berntsen preached to Zhang Lingsheng and Paul Wei, and they also spoke in other tongues.

In 1917, Paul Wei received the instruction of Christ to be baptized with the baptism of Jesus, in the same manner as Jesus was baptized. Then he received the gift of the Holy Spirit, as evidenced by the tongue emitting sound. This was completely unlike the speaking in other tongues in the Western churches, which was characterized by the movement of the lips in a type of prayer language.

The Tabernacle of Testimony Was Opened

The apostle John described the event that preceded the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit, saying: “The temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened.” There was enlightenment from heaven for the pattern of God’s temple, His Church.

In the Old Testament, the tabernacle of testimony had to be built according to God’s instructions before the glory of God could enter. In Acts 7, Stephen rebuked the Jews because they did not follow God’s instructions: “Our fathers had the tabernacle of testimony in the wilderness just as He who spoke to Moses directed him to make it according to the pattern he had seen.” The writer of Hebrews recalled this instruction of God, saying, “See … that you make it according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain.”

After Moses built the tabernacle according to the pattern he was shown, the glory of God came in.

In 1915, Bernt Berntsen met Paul Wei in Beijing. Paul Wei agreed with all the teachings of Bernt Berntsen, including the washing of the feet, but he insisted on Saturday rest after reading tracts from the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Because of this disagreement, he separated from Bernt Bernsten.

In 1917, after fasting for 39 days, Paul Wei heard a voice from heaven saying, “You must be baptized with the baptism of Jesus.” He thus walked about three kilometers to a river, waded into the water and knelt down. Then he heard the voice again, saying, “You must be baptized face down.”

When Paul Wei obeyed these instructions, “the temple was filled with the smoke from the glory of God and from His power.” Paul Wei entered what he called “the holiest place.” He was filled with the Holy Spirit, as evidenced by the tongue emitting sound.

Fire from the Altar

The apostle John prophesied the end-time outpouring of the Holy Spirit, saying, “The Angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar, and hurled it to the earth.”

The Angel was Christ and the fire that He poured out was the same Holy Spirit He poured out on the day of Pentecost with “tongues of fire.”

In 1917, after Paul Wei obeyed the instruction of God to be baptized face down, he received the comfort of the Holy Spirit, as evidenced by the tongue emitting sound, in Greek, laleo glossa. This expression appears only in the Bible. The meaning of it is much different from the “speaking in tongues” practiced by the Pentecostal denominations of the West. The Greek expression laleo glossa does not describe speaking in other languages. There are other Greek expressions for that. For Paul Wei and the church in China, the tongue emits sound. There was also a strong comforting movement of the Holy Spirit that could be seen by all. As on the day of Pentecost, the evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit was both seen and heard.

On his deathbed, Paul Wei pleaded with the Western missionary Bernt Berntsen, saying, “If you are able to believe that Jesus gave me a face-down baptism and that He personally appeared and gave me commands, then you will indeed enter that holiest place.”  Berntsen refused, however, saying that he would wait until the Holy Spirit revealed it to him.

As Ezekiel prophesied, the Church of the end days would come from the East.

The Church of the East rejected the image and mark of the beast, and obeyed the following five doctrines:

  • Sabbath day rest;
  • Baptism in the name of Jesus, in like manner;
  • Washing of the feet after baptism;
  • Holy Communion; and

The laying on of hands for bestowing the gift of the Holy Spirit.

This Gate Shall Be Shut

The Apostolic Church came to an end when the bishop of Rome stood in the holy place and the abomination of desolation was set up. God’s sanctuary was cast to the ground.

God will not allow anyone to stand in the holy place in the last days. Ezekiel said that when the glory of God came in, God commanded that the door must remain shut. The glory of God will never again depart from His temple: “This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it because the Lord God of Israel has entered by it; therefore, it shall be shut.”

The meaning of “This gate shall be shut” is simply that the doctrines of the Church cannot be changed by men. No man may enter the temple or have his way in the temple, for this is the temple of God. The Antichrist desolated the Church when a man “stood in the holy place.”

In Revelation 15:8, we read that “no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.” Since its inception in 1917, the Church of God in China has absolutely resisted any compromise of its doctrines. It has rejected all the man-made doctrines of the Western churches.

In Revelation 14:4, John said, “These are the men who have not been defiled by women … These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.” The saints of the East rejected the teachings of the great harlot because they knew they received the Holy Spirit because they obeyed the instructions of God. As Ezekiel said, “Write it down in their sight so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances and perform them.”

Peals of Thunder and an Earthquake

The apostle John told us that after the Holy Spirit was poured out, there were peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

“Peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning” was how the dramatic encounter with God on Mount Sinai is described in Exodus 19:16 and 20:18.

In Revelation 8:5, these “peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning” described the outpouring of the Spirit of God. John said they were followed by an earthquake.

The earthquakes in Revelation 6:12, 11:13, and 16:18 describe the Battle of Armageddon and the Reformation wars. They were called “great earthquakes.” In 1917, when the Holy Spirit was poured out in China, China joined World War I. The apostle John did not call World War I a “great earthquake,” but it was called “the Great War” because it was compared to the Battle of Armageddon.

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit in China was accompanied by signs and miracles. By 1923, more than 100 churches had been established in southern China. All received the same Spirit, with the same evidence of the tongue emitting sound first experienced by Paul Wei in 1917.

On Mount Sinai, after the “peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning,” the Israelites heard the sound of a trumpet blast. Here, in Revelation 8:5, the “peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning” introduced the sounding of seven trumpets that removed the lawless from the Kingdom of Heaven.

The Lawless Are Removed from the Kingdom of Heaven

In A.D. 600, the prophet Muhammed rebuked the Arab Christians, saying, “People of the Book, go not beyond the bounds in your religion, and say not as to God but the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only the Messenger of God, and His Word that He committed to Mary, and a Spirit from Him. So believe in God and His Messengers, and say not ‘Three.’”

At this time, the Catholic Church corrupted the image of God and enforced Sunday rest, despising the commandment that God had given to Moses.

Jesus said that at the end of the age, He “will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness.” 

The Trinity doctrine — the image of the beast — and the changing the day of rest to Sunday — the mark of the beast — are significant obstacles to man’s salvation. They are significant obstacles to all God-fearing Christians and to all Muslims and Jews, who represent three billion people who believe in the one God who created heaven and earth.

In Revelation 8, 14, 16, and 19, we find the angels that Jesus sent out to gather out of His kingdom “all stumbling blocks and those who commit lawlessness.”

  • In Revelation 8, four angels sound four trumpets that remove the lawless from the Kingdom of Heaven and protect the righteous.
  • In Revelation 14, four angels announce the cleansing of Babylon. The third angel says, “If anyone worships the beast and his image … he will also drink of the wine of the wrath of God.”
  • In Revelation 16, five angels announce five bowls of wrath on the kingdom of the beast, the first of which is sores on those who receive the mark of the beast and worship his image.
  • In Revelation 19, a rider on a white horse, followed by the armies of heaven, strikes down the Gentiles using the Word of God.

The Angels in Revelation 14

In Revelation 14, we find the angels whom Jesus will send at the end of the age to remove “all stumbling blocks and those who commit lawlessness.”

Jesus said that the day of the Lord would come as a snare for “all those who sit (καθημένους) on the face of the earth.” In Revelation 14:6, John sees an “angel flying in midheaven having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who sit on earth, and to every tribe and tongue and nation and people.” The expression “every tribe and tongue and nation and people” comes from the Book of Daniel. King Nebuchadnezzar set up an image for everyone to worship, representing the image of the beast. After he repented, he told every tribe and tongue and nation and people to give God glory, and King Darius told all people to “fear God” after he was fooled by “the law that could not be changed,” the mark of the beast.

The angel said, “Fear God and give Him glory, worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and springs of water.” The expression “who made the heaven and the earth and the sea” was first used to introduce the commandment of the Sabbath day. Here, the angel adds “springs of water” to signify the Holy Spirit received by those who keep the commandments of God, as described in verse 12.

A second angel says, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the Great, she who made all the nations drink of the wine of her immorality.”

Then a third angel called out, “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God…. They have no rest day or night.” The words “no rest day or night” tell us which commandment was broken in the kingdom of the beast.

In the end of the Chapter, an angel with a sickle gathered the vines of the earth, and the Rider on the White Horse treads the winepress outside the city, “and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles.”

The Flying Scroll, Basket, and Chariots

The saints who fly in “mid-heaven” in Revelation 8:13, 14:6, and 19:17 are of course the “eagles,” the last living creature, that Jesus will gather up when He returns. These were first described by Zechariah, who saw visions of a flying scroll, a flying basket, and flying chariots.

First, he saw a flying scroll that was “the curse that goes over the face of the whole earth,” by which every thief and perjurer is expelled. “It shall remain in the house and consume it.” It was twenty by ten cubits — the size of Solomon’s porch — measured “according to the width of the house.” How does this scroll the size of a house fly all over the earth and enter each house but through Wi-Fi? Zechariah gave us an amazing description of the Internet 2,500 years before it was invented. The thieves who are expelled by the curse are those who steal the true Gospel. Jesus called those who enter the fold of His sheep by another door robbers and thieves. This flying scroll brings the hour of God’s judgment, as announced by the first angel in Revelation 14:6.

Then Zechariah saw a woman of sin who was thrust into a basket and carried into Babylon by two women with the wings of storks. The Hebrew word for “stork” (חֲסִידָה) is the feminine of the Hebrew word for “saint” (חָסִיד). The saints carry her into “Mystery Babylon.” This is described by the second angel in Revelation 14:8: “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the Great.”

Finally, Zechariah sees four flying chariots carried by red, black, white, and dappled horses. They are called four spirits that go out through the earth. The white horses go after the black horses in the north country, the place of the Antichrist. God said, “Those … have quieted My spirit in the north country.” These are the white horses that follow the Rider on the White Horse in the Book of Revelation. He treads the great winepress of God’s wrath described by the third and final angels in Revelation 14.

The Seven Trumpets and Bowls of Wrath

In Revelation 8 and 16, John saw visions of seven trumpets and seven bowls of wrath.

When we put these side by side, we can easily see that they are related.

The seven trumpets describe the purification of the Kingdom of Heaven. The bowls of wrath describe the attack on the kingdom of the beast, which represents the lawless in the Kingdom of Heaven.

In each of the first four trumpets, one third of the lawless are removed from those who remain, just as one third of the angels were cast out of heaven in Chapter 12.

The first three trumpets and bowls of wrath all result in blood — the spiritual death of the lawless. The first three trumpets and bowls of wrath are plagues on the earth, sea, and springs of water, as listed in Revelation 14:7: “Fear God and give Him glory, worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and springs of water.”

The first trumpet is hail and fire mixed with blood, thrown to the Earth. This causes sores on those who worship the image of the beast and receive his mark in the first bowl of wrath.

The second trumpet and bowl of wrath are plagues on the sea. The sea represents baptism and salvation.

The third trumpet and bowl of wrath are plagues on the rivers and springs. The rivers and springs represent the spirit received by those in the kingdom of the beast.

The fourth trumpet is the final darkening of the lawless in the Kingdom of Heaven. In the fourth bowl of wrath, “the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father.” Those in the kingdom of the beast are scorched by the great heat of the sun. In the fifth bowl of wrath, the kingdom of the beast is completely darkened.

The fifth trumpet describes the release of Satan after he was bound for 1,000 years.

The last two trumpets and bowls of wrath describe the Battle of Armageddon and the day of God’s judgment.

The First Trumpet

Before the first bowl of wrath was poured out, a loud voice was heard from the temple. This loud voice was the Spirit of Christ, who called out from the temple of the Sanctified Church.

The angel with the first bowl of wrath poured out “sores on those who receive the mark of the beast and worship his image.” Where do these sores come from? From the “hail and fire mixed with blood” in the first trumpet.

Hail was mixed with fire in the seventh plague in Egypt. It struck the Egyptians and their livestock, but it did not affect the people of God.

Like the plagues in Egypt, these plagues of the seven trumpets do not affect the righteous.

Now, hail and fire are mixed with blood. This blood represents the spiritual death of the lawless.

John said, “A third of the trees were burned up.” Jesus compared those in the Kingdom of God to trees, saying, “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit.” The third of the trees that are burned up represent those who tolerate the image and mark of the beast.

John also said, “All the green grass was burned up.” For Isaiah said, “All flesh is as grass.” All the grass is burned up because all men were harmed by the truth of the mark of beast. John told us that the false prophet caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead.”

The meaning of the trees and grass as “men” is clear in Revelation 9:4, where the locusts are told not to harm the grass or any tree but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

The Second Trumpet

Isaiah said that in the last days, the mountain of the Lord’s house would be established above all the mountains, and “all the nations shall flow to it.”

This is the end-time Sanctified Church that appeared in the second trumpet. A great mountain burning with fire — the fire of the Holy Spirit — was thrown into the sea, and a third of the creatures in the sea died, representing the lawless in the Kingdom of Heaven. When the second bowl of wrath was poured out on the kingdom of the beast, “every living thing in the sea died.” The second trumpet and the second bowl of wrath describe the spiritual death of the lawless when the end-time Church appears.

The great mountain burning with fire that entered the sea was first described by the prophet Ezekiel. He described the end-time Church from the East as water that enters the sea: “These waters are going forth unto the east circuit, and have gone down unto the desert, and have entered the sea; unto the sea they are brought forth, and the waters have been healed.”

When the water of the Holy Spirit completes its course in the East, it will enter the Dead Sea, the previous ground of Christianity. Ezekiel said the waters of the Dead Sea “will be healed” and “made fresh,” but “the swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt.” Not everyone will be revived. The swamps in Ezekiel are represented by the third of the creatures in the sea who die in the second trumpet.

John also said that “a third of the ships sank.” Ships are the “arks” of salvation — different denominations. In Revelation 18, we are told about those who make their living by the sea, selling salvation, but the preaching of the end-time Sanctified Church causes all these lawless ships to sink.

After Two Days He Will Revive Us

The most famous prophecy of end-time revival came from Hosea, who said, “After two days, He will revive us. On the third day, He will raise us up…. He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.”

The former is the rain that falls at the end of the year. After two days, 2,000 years, the Holy Spirit will be poured out again. In the third day, the third thousand years, we will all be resurrected.

The Holy Spirit was first poured out in A.D. 31. After two days, after 2031, the Holy Spirit will bring revival to the previous ground of Christianity, the Dead Sea. Ezekiel said, “When this water completes the Eastern circuit it will enter the sea.” This is the meaning of the great mountain burning with fire that enters the sea in the second trumpet.

We can also forecast the end-time revival of the West from the seven trumpets. We know that the first four trumpets span about 600 years, from 1917 to 2497, when the Sanctuary is cleansed. That gives us about 150 years for each trumpet. The fifth trumpet is said to be five months, 150 days, or years. The revival of the second trumpet may not begin until 2067 — 150 years after the year 1917.

This revival was described by Ezekiel in his prophecy to the dead bones: “Prophecy to the breath, prophesy, Son of Man, and say to the breath ‘Come from the four winds.’ So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet and became an exceedingly great army.”

The Third Trumpet

In the second trumpet, a great mountain burning with fire is thrown into the sea. This is the mountain of the Lord’s house that Isaiah said would appear in the last days. The fire represents the Holy Spirit.

As the Sanctified Church becomes firmly established, other churches will envy the gift of the Holy Spirit but they will not receive the Holy Spirit when they pray; they will receive the spirit of a demon. This is the message of the third trumpet. A star from heaven called Wormwood falls on the river and springs. Stars in the Bible represent spirits or angels. Wormwood is the spirit of a demon that falls on the rivers and springs of false churches.

Rivers and springs signify the Holy Spirit throughout the Bible. In John 7:38–39, we read, “’He who believes in Me, as the scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ By this He spoke of the Spirit.’’ The Holy Spirit as a river is also found in Revelation 16:4 and 22:1–2. In John 4:14, Jesus described the Spirit as a spring when He said, “The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water springing up to eternal life.” The Holy Spirit as a spring is also found in Revelation 14:7, 16:4, and 21:6.

The third bowl of wrath tells us that the rivers and springs became blood. Those who drink the rivers and springs of the kingdom of the beast do not receive life but spiritual death. They drink the spirit of a demon. The cleansing of the Kingdom of Heaven intensifies as we approach the 2,300 days prophesied by Daniel.

The fourth trumpet will complete the cleansing of the Kingdom of Heaven, when the grapes of the Earth are ripe and ready for the harvest.
