Daniel 12: The Triumph of Israel

The stage has been set since 2014-2015 for the last great controversy. The blood moons heralding the successful mission of the King of the North upon the Christian world. The churches have fallen and embraced an antitypical Jeroboam, who like Joseph of old, holds unparalleled influence amongst the antitypical apostasy of the ten tribes. Now the crowning acts of the final drama are underway. The mark of the beast shall be soon be pushed from America and a warfare such as never was known amongst the professed people of God shall take place. where no man might buy or sell, except they give homage to the Northern King’s apostate confederacy, adhering to his commission to make war against the commandments of God and those who keep them. One last call to repent; one last call to honor the kingdom of heaven; one last call to mercy shall be heard throughout the earth; arrayed against it are one apostate army, and one of the strongest demonic delusions to confront the churches.

***A note of importance: Daniel 12 is building on every previous chapter of the prophetic book of Daniel. To have a sound understanding of this chapter, and the subjects being spoken about, we highly recommend you examine the previous prophecies of Daniel’s book.

A greatly detailed prophecy was given to Daniel in the eleventh chapter by the angel Gabriel. In the tenth chapter, the angel appears after a great warfare with Satan and his angels, where it is shown that Michael, the Prince of the Angels, steps in to overrule Satan’s purposes to impede the divine purposes from taking place. You will recall from this chapter, that Satan desired to prevent the decree to restore and build Jerusalem, and thereby hinder the commencement of the 2300 year prophecy.
Satan knew if he could prevent the decree from going forth, it would prevent the coming of Messiah the Prince to “crush his head” (Gen. 3:15). So his angels worked to move the heart of the king against the the people of God. One specific mention of this was when Daniel when he was thrown into the lion’s den. Another time was when Smerdis, a usurper to the Medo-Persian throne ordered a cease-and-desist in the building of the temple at Jerusalem. Then still another time when Artexerxes was moved to “cease by force and power” (Ezra 4:23) the work of restoration, which was later overturned.
This warfare between Christ and his angels, and Satan and his angels would continue with God’s people being in the heart of the conflict. The reason for God’s people finding themselves subject to these terrors were because of their apostasy. The Lord said: “And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.” (Jeremiah 15:4)
Perhaps you recall when Manasseh, King of Judah, “made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.” (2 Chronicles 33:9) Manasseh’s sin led him to be taken away by the King of Assyria into it’s capital city, Babylon, to serve as a slave in 677 BC. From this time, the providential protections against the heathen nations were steadily withdrawn as Daniel’s people continued to sin. Jeremiah’s prophecy was fulfilled in 606BC with the leading away captive of the chief children of Judah, including Daniel.
Unfortunately for Daniel, after Babylon fell, immediate restoration of the city of Jerusalem did not take place. And when it did, the kingdom was not to be fully restored. They would continue to be subject to the dominance of heathenism. God’s people would have none to be seated on the throne of David, “until He comes whose right it is; and I will give it to Him.” (Ezekiel 21:26) Yet that time was afar off. In fact, Christ was not to begin the inaugural process of receiving the throne of David until “the judgment was set and the books were opened” in 1844. When this process began, we entered into a great prophetic period called the Day of Atonement, where every case who professed faith in the Messiah was examined before the multitudes of witnesses in heaven, to see if they were worthy of the benefits of the blood of the Lamb. Thus Christ was to receive the crown, and the number of His kingdom was to be made up. Now we are living in a solemn time where every decision among the living will be made to be among that number or shut out from it.

THE WARFARE WAS LONG

Daniel concluded that the matter revealed to him “was true, but the warfare was long.” (Daniel 10:1) Gabriel’s prophecy to “make {Daniel} understand what shall befall {his} people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.” The vision Gabriel was speaking about was the 2300 year Chazon vision of “many days”; this period, as mentioned previously, was until the end of the captivity, where God the Father would go through the final process of delivering the throne of David to His Son, “whose right it is”. At “the time of the end”, the end of the appointed sevenfold captivities of the northern tribe of Israel and southern tribe of Judah, the great final scenes of the warfare were given.
A great proclamation was to be made against the beast and his image, comprising of the apostate northern tribes of spiritual Israel (the fallen Protestant/Evangelical churches) with the Papacy at the helm. This was called the third angel’s “loud cry” message. This message is also likened to Elijah’s message to ancient Israel to repent of their worship of false gods. The message of Elijah troubled sin-loving Israel, and in like manner, the Pope, called the King of the north, is troubled by the loud cry of the third angel. The message, worldwide in it’s extent, is to go to every tongue, nation, tribe, and people.
The message further was a call to receive the benefits of the atonement “to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness…and to anoint the Most Holy” to prepare the people to stand in the great day of God Almighty. (Dan. 9:24) Thus was the Elijah message to go forward to those who turned away from their sins: “Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God…And all the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together…”
(Isaiah 40:2-3) The long warfare is to be finished; sin is to be taken away; the work of Christ is accomplished in the heavenly Sanctuary.

“For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.” (Isaiah 66:15-16)
All flesh will see the glory of the Lord, and it will be with rebukes against apostasy, described as a fiery sword of God’s word proclaimed by the loud voice of the angel. It speaks that the warfare of God’s people being finished; sin has been put down and pardoned; Satan’s dominion, along with those standing under his banner, have come to their end; and Christ shall reign victoriously in the hearts of His redeemed over heaven and earth. Naturally, this message troubles the Papal King, and he exercises his power with one final struggle against the last-day Spirit and Power of Elijah. But “he shall come to his end” and none shall help him.

THE GREAT CORONATION COMPLETE

From 677BC-606BC, the throne of David was paralyzed under Manasseh and carried away into Babylon, and then wholly removed from power. This came to 1844AD when the throne of David was being given to Christ, and this process would wonderfully be complete with the full restoration of the throne amongst God’s people. Christ would lay aside His priestly robes in the Sanctuary; with the work of intercession for transgressors. All who would be saved have been saved. The number of the kingdom was wonderfully made up with those who would be redeemed from the earth. The Gabriel concludes the warfare with it’s glorious conclusion. This is where Chapter 12 begins, serving as a continuation to where Chapter 11 left off…

“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.”
(Daniel 12:1)

THE KING OF KINGS & LORD OF LORDS

Michael, “the Great Prince”, the Messiah and Conqueror, “shall stand up.” Our Victorious Representative over sin and death, who bears our names before God the Father takes the throne of David, which had for millenia been unoccupied. Yet when the Great Representative reigns, He shall cause His people to reign with Him. The Scripture says of the Messiah: “Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong” (Isaiah 53:12). Christ’s dominion which He restores shall He apportion to mankind according to their works. “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” (Revelation 3:21) “If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him” (2 Tim. 2:12)
This is further revealed in the Parable of the Talents told by Jesus in Matthew 25, “And his lord said to him, “Well done good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things; enter into your Master’s joy!” (Matt. 25:21) He will not only share His kingly dominion, but shares His own joy in serving others with those who love Him with all of their heart, mind, soul and strength. Thus we shall be kings and lords under our great heavenly King and Lord; thus is He called “The King of kings, and Lord of lords.”

JUDGMENT AND THE SAINTS

Of that time, the Scripture describes in greater detail that time and the work that shall follow. “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.” (Isaiah 32:1)
Christ will reign in righteousness, and those who are with Him “rule in judgment.” What does this mean? In greater detail, it is described as follows: “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4)

Judgment is given to those who are seated upon the thrones of dominion. What is the judgment we shall be given? The apostle tells us: “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3)
We shall judge the world; we shall judge angels. The Bible describes this fascinating event where we shall review the cases of all the inhabitants of the world to see the righteous judgment of the Most High. This event will prove without a shadow of a doubt that “true and righteous are His judgments.” (Rev. 19:2)
It is a wonderful thought that when Christ stands, we are represented by Him as standing. The living saints receive a part in His kingdom. The sealing message of the loud cry, which came from the east (addressed in our last article) seals twelve thousand out of each of the twelve tribes. “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” (Revelation 7:4)
It is these 144,000 which will reign with Christ when He stands up. “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. These are they which followed the Lamb whithersoever He goeth…” (Revelation 14:1)
Those among the tribes who were not sealed shall be judged by the 144,000 who were sealed. “And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28)
This is not speaking of an arbitrary judgment, but rather the examination of the case of all to see the justice and wisdom of the Most High before the final judgment measured out at the end of the thousand years.
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” (Revelation 20:11-12)
The Scripture declares at this judgment that “there was found no place for them.” Those who have not their names written in the book of the living are numbered among the dead as transgressors; the heavens and earth having “fled away”, not a single place in the entire universe remains where the wicked could reside. We will look in more detail at the Book of the Living.

EVERLASTING DELIVERANCE

“Thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” What book is this? It’s the Book of the Living. In the Day of Atonement, “the judgment was set, the books were opened.” (Daniel 7:10) The book is also called the Book of Life. The psalmist speaks of this when he says “Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.” (Psalm 69:28) On the Day of Atonement, sins were to be blotted out of the life record of the righteous by the blood of Christ. However, if their sins were retained and the Lamb of God had not taken away their sins, “their name” would be “blotted out” (Psalm 109:13) of the book of the living at the end of the judgment; and “shall be cut off from among his people.” (Lev. 23:29) Then shall be heard the glad tidings to all whose names are enscribed in the book of life: “Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.” (Nahum 1:15)

Many kings had stood up in the south and in the north reigning oppressively. God’s people were without ceasing found subject to the oppressive hand of sin. Now, the throne of the southern kingdom of Judah, removed because of wickedness, is given to Christ; the present Jerusalem, “where our Lord was crucified” (Rev. 11:8), was rejected as the holy city; spiritual Judah was given a better city; “Jerusalem above” (Gal. 4:26), “Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem…which are written in heaven” (Heb. 12:22-23) who Christ as King shall be betrothed to wonderfully (Rev. 21:2). The throne of David, once lost, was restored and given to Him “whose right it is”.

THE TIME OF TROUBLE

The Papal king of the north’s policy arrayed the apostate tribes and the world against the remnant people of God; now Christ would arise and take up the throne. Gabriel makes Daniel to know that it is for the sake of his people that Christ arises, “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22) This “shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time”. It is also called “the time of Jacob’s trouble” in the book of Jeremiah.
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.” (Jeremiah 30:7-9)

The throne of David was lost, and the yoke of Babylon had come over God’s people for their rebellion. Now the promise is that Babylon, whose yoke has dominated His people, should be broken, and that “David their King”, symbolic of Christ when He takes His throne, shall rise up against the last day Babylon, who he shall overthrow. Yet for this is spoken of Jacob and his great time of trouble when the armies of Esau were seemingly arrayed against him.
What striking imagery is this! The armies of the Satanic and Papal power are compared to Esau who sold off his birthright. It is further compared to Babylon’s yoke. Babylon was also called the King of the north by the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. 1:14-15, 6:22).
Just before the fall of Babylon, the great river Euphrates was dried up to prepare for it’s fall, which is synonymous in the last days with the Spirit of God being withdrawn from the apostate churches because of the sealing message of the last day Elijahs from the East and the North. This sealing message is to prepare people for Christ when He stands up, that they might be sealed and reign with Him. In like manner, the book of Revelation gives us more details of this event:

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:12-16)

The Northern King is prepared to fall; the loud cry of the third angel’s message does it’s appointed work of sealing the servants of God in their foreheads. Thus the sealing angel of the east prepares the kings of the east to reign with Christ. The lines are drawn when Christ takes the Kingdom. Christ with His faithful, and Satan with his apostates are in distinct opposition one to the other. Satan’s last conflict to maintain the kingdom before the great Millenial reign is the decree of war to destroy the people of God on the earth. Satan, arraying his entire apostate army, issues a genocidal death sentence against them from the highest earthly authority: the United Nations. “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

This small remnant standing with Christ, unable to defend themselves in the deadly conflict with the powers of earth that are marshaled by the satanic host, make God their defense. The decree has been passed by the highest earthly authority that they shall worship the beast and receive his mark under pain of persecution and death. This is the time of Jacob’s trouble, and His people are saved out of it by Michael the Great Prince which standeth for us in the hour of peril.

The churches have fallen and embraced an antitypical Jeroboam, who like Joseph of old, holds unparalleled influence amongst the antitypical apostasy of the ten tribes.

This warfare between Christ and his angels, and Satan and his angels would continue with God’s people being in the heart of the conflict. The reason for God’s people finding themselves subject to these terrors were because of their apostasy. The Lord said: “And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.” (Jeremiah 15:4)
Perhaps you recall when Manasseh, King of Judah, “made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.” (2 Chronicles 33:9) Manasseh’s sin led him to be taken away by the King of Assyria into it’s capital city, Babylon, to serve as a slave in 677 BC. From this time, the providential protections against the heathen nations were steadily withdrawn as Daniel’s people continued to sin. Jeremiah’s prophecy was fulfilled in 606BC with the leading away captive of the chief children of Judah, including Daniel.
Unfortunately for Daniel, after Babylon fell, immediate restoration of the city of Jerusalem did not take place. And when it did, the kingdom was not to be fully restored. They would continue to be subject to the dominance of heathenism. God’s people would have none to be seated on the throne of David, “until He comes whose right it is; and I will give it to Him.” (Ezekiel 21:26) Yet that time was afar off. In fact, Christ was not to begin the inaugural process of receiving the throne of David until “the judgment was set and the books were opened” in 1844. When this process began, we entered into a great prophetic period called the Day of Atonement, where every case who professed faith in the Messiah was examined before the multitudes of witnesses in heaven, to see if they were worthy of the benefits of the blood of the Lamb. Thus Christ was to receive the crown, and the number of His kingdom was to be made up. Now we are living in a solemn time where every decision among the living will be made to be among that number or shut out from it.

THE WARFARE WAS LONG

Daniel concluded that the matter revealed to him “was true, but the warfare was long.” (Daniel 10:1) Gabriel’s prophecy to “make {Daniel} understand what shall befall {his} people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.” The vision Gabriel was speaking about was the 2300 year Chazon vision of “many days”; this period, as mentioned previously, was until the end of the captivity, where God the Father would go through the final process of delivering the throne of David to His Son, “whose right it is”. At “the time of the end”, the end of the appointed sevenfold captivities of the northern tribe of Israel and southern tribe of Judah, the great final scenes of the warfare were given.
A great proclamation was to be made against the beast and his image, comprising of the apostate northern tribes of spiritual Israel (the fallen Protestant/Evangelical churches) with the Papacy at the helm. This was called the third angel’s “loud cry” message. This message is also likened to Elijah’s message to ancient Israel to repent of their worship of false gods. The message of Elijah troubled sin-loving Israel, and in like manner, the Pope, called the King of the north, is troubled by the loud cry of the third angel. The message, worldwide in it’s extent, is to go to every tongue, nation, tribe, and people.
The message further was a call to receive the benefits of the atonement “to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness…and to anoint the Most Holy” to prepare the people to stand in the great day of God Almighty. (Dan. 9:24) Thus was the Elijah message to go forward to those who turned away from their sins: “Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God…And all the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together…”
(Isaiah 40:2-3) The long warfare is to be finished; sin is to be taken away; the work of Christ is accomplished in the heavenly Sanctuary.

“For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.” (Isaiah 66:15-16)
All flesh will see the glory of the Lord, and it will be with rebukes against apostasy, described as a fiery sword of God’s word proclaimed by the loud voice of the angel. It speaks that the warfare of God’s people being finished; sin has been put down and pardoned; Satan’s dominion, along with those standing under his banner, have come to their end; and Christ shall reign victoriously in the hearts of His redeemed over heaven and earth. Naturally, this message troubles the Papal King, and he exercises his power with one final struggle against the last-day Spirit and Power of Elijah. But “he shall come to his end” and none shall help him.

THE GREAT CORONATION COMPLETE

From 677BC-606BC, the throne of David was paralyzed under Manasseh and carried away into Babylon, and then wholly removed from power. This came to 1844AD when the throne of David was being given to Christ, and this process would wonderfully be complete with the full restoration of the throne amongst God’s people. Christ would lay aside His priestly robes in the Sanctuary; with the work of intercession for transgressors. All who would be saved have been saved. The number of the kingdom was wonderfully made up with those who would be redeemed from the earth. The Gabriel concludes the warfare with it’s glorious conclusion. This is where Chapter 12 begins, serving as a continuation to where Chapter 11 left off…

“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.”
(Daniel 12:1)

THE KING OF KINGS & LORD OF LORDS

Michael, “the Great Prince”, the Messiah and Conqueror, “shall stand up.” Our Victorious Representative over sin and death, who bears our names before God the Father takes the throne of David, which had for millenia been unoccupied. Yet when the Great Representative reigns, He shall cause His people to reign with Him. The Scripture says of the Messiah: “Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong” (Isaiah 53:12). Christ’s dominion which He restores shall He apportion to mankind according to their works. “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” (Revelation 3:21) “If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him” (2 Tim. 2:12)
This is further revealed in the Parable of the Talents told by Jesus in Matthew 25, “And his lord said to him, “Well done good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things; enter into your Master’s joy!” (Matt. 25:21) He will not only share His kingly dominion, but shares His own joy in serving others with those who love Him with all of their heart, mind, soul and strength. Thus we shall be kings and lords under our great heavenly King and Lord; thus is He called “The King of kings, and Lord of lords.”

JUDGMENT AND THE SAINTS

Of that time, the Scripture describes in greater detail that time and the work that shall follow. “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.” (Isaiah 32:1)
Christ will reign in righteousness, and those who are with Him “rule in judgment.” What does this mean? In greater detail, it is described as follows: “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4)

Judgment is given to those who are seated upon the thrones of dominion. What is the judgment we shall be given? The apostle tells us: “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3)
We shall judge the world; we shall judge angels. The Bible describes this fascinating event where we shall review the cases of all the inhabitants of the world to see the righteous judgment of the Most High. This event will prove without a shadow of a doubt that “true and righteous are His judgments.” (Rev. 19:2)
It is a wonderful thought that when Christ stands, we are represented by Him as standing. The living saints receive a part in His kingdom. The sealing message of the loud cry, which came from the east (addressed in our last article) seals twelve thousand out of each of the twelve tribes. “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” (Revelation 7:4)
It is these 144,000 which will reign with Christ when He stands up. “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. These are they which followed the Lamb whithersoever He goeth…” (Revelation 14:1)
Those among the tribes who were not sealed shall be judged by the 144,000 who were sealed. “And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28)
This is not speaking of an arbitrary judgment, but rather the examination of the case of all to see the justice and wisdom of the Most High before the final judgment measured out at the end of the thousand years.
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” (Revelation 20:11-12)
The Scripture declares at this judgment that “there was found no place for them.” Those who have not their names written in the book of the living are numbered among the dead as transgressors; the heavens and earth having “fled away”, not a single place in the entire universe remains where the wicked could reside. We will look in more detail at the Book of the Living.

EVERLASTING DELIVERANCE

“Thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” What book is this? It’s the Book of the Living. In the Day of Atonement, “the judgment was set, the books were opened.” (Daniel 7:10) The book is also called the Book of Life. The psalmist speaks of this when he says “Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.” (Psalm 69:28) On the Day of Atonement, sins were to be blotted out of the life record of the righteous by the blood of Christ. However, if their sins were retained and the Lamb of God had not taken away their sins, “their name” would be “blotted out” (Psalm 109:13) of the book of the living at the end of the judgment; and “shall be cut off from among his people.” (Lev. 23:29) Then shall be heard the glad tidings to all whose names are enscribed in the book of life: “Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.” (Nahum 1:15)

Many kings had stood up in the south and in the north reigning oppressively. God’s people were without ceasing found subject to the oppressive hand of sin. Now, the throne of the southern kingdom of Judah, removed because of wickedness, is given to Christ; the present Jerusalem, “where our Lord was crucified” (Rev. 11:8), was rejected as the holy city; spiritual Judah was given a better city; “Jerusalem above” (Gal. 4:26), “Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem…which are written in heaven” (Heb. 12:22-23) who Christ as King shall be betrothed to wonderfully (Rev. 21:2). The throne of David, once lost, was restored and given to Him “whose right it is”.

THE TIME OF TROUBLE

The Papal king of the north’s policy arrayed the apostate tribes and the world against the remnant people of God; now Christ would arise and take up the throne. Gabriel makes Daniel to know that it is for the sake of his people that Christ arises, “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22) This “shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time”. It is also called “the time of Jacob’s trouble” in the book of Jeremiah.
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.” (Jeremiah 30:7-9)

The throne of David was lost, and the yoke of Babylon had come over God’s people for their rebellion. Now the promise is that Babylon, whose yoke has dominated His people, should be broken, and that “David their King”, symbolic of Christ when He takes His throne, shall rise up against the last day Babylon, who he shall overthrow. Yet for this is spoken of Jacob and his great time of trouble when the armies of Esau were seemingly arrayed against him.
What striking imagery is this! The armies of the Satanic and Papal power are compared to Esau who sold off his birthright. It is further compared to Babylon’s yoke. Babylon was also called the King of the north by the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. 1:14-15, 6:22).
Just before the fall of Babylon, the great river Euphrates was dried up to prepare for it’s fall, which is synonymous in the last days with the Spirit of God being withdrawn from the apostate churches because of the sealing message of the last day Elijahs from the East and the North. This sealing message is to prepare people for Christ when He stands up, that they might be sealed and reign with Him. In like manner, the book of Revelation gives us more details of this event:

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:12-16)

The Northern King is prepared to fall; the loud cry of the third angel’s message does it’s appointed work of sealing the servants of God in their foreheads. Thus the sealing angel of the east prepares the kings of the east to reign with Christ. The lines are drawn when Christ takes the Kingdom. Christ with His faithful, and Satan with his apostates are in distinct opposition one to the other. Satan’s last conflict to maintain the kingdom before the great Millenial reign is the decree of war to destroy the people of God on the earth. Satan, arraying his entire apostate army, issues a genocidal death sentence against them from the highest earthly authority: the United Nations. “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

This small remnant standing with Christ, unable to defend themselves in the deadly conflict with the powers of earth that are marshaled by the satanic host, make God their defense. The decree has been passed by the highest earthly authority that they shall worship the beast and receive his mark under pain of persecution and death. This is the time of Jacob’s trouble, and His people are saved out of it by Michael the Great Prince which standeth for us in the hour of peril.
