    say that 8esus6 murderers will see 8esus at the 0nd coming$ Thismay 'e re&erring to the 2rd coming$ A 7uestion + 8esus prayed &orhis murderers to 'e &orgiven, so why will they go to hell:

    Chapter 11 The !scension of Christ

    This sa"e 'esus$ which is taken up fro" you into hea&en$ shall so co"e in like"anner as ye ha&e seen hi" !o into hea&en.

    Chapter 18 (ystery of )ni uity

    ut althou!h this hea&en6darin! deception was to be suffered to be carried ondown throu!h ti"e until the second appearin! of 'esus$ yet throu!h all this ti"e oferror and deception$ od has not been left without a witness.

    This deception is the doctrine that the Holy rest day has 'eenchanged &rom the @th day o& the wee( to the !st day$ This is onedeception that isn6t going away until 8esus comes$

    3 was shown that the law of od would stand fast fore&er$ and e4ist in the newearth to all eternity.

    This was Satan+s first lesson upon the i""ortality of the soul/ and he has carriedon this deception fro" that ti"e to the present$ and will carry it on until thecapti&ity of od+s children shall be turned.

    Another &alse doctrine lasting until 8esus comes$

    The soul that sinneth it shall die an e&erlastin! death/ a death that will last fore&er$where there will be no hope of a resurrection/ and then the wrath of od will beappeased.

    ein!s who" od created ha&e chosen to rebel a!ainst his !o&ern"ent/ but 3 sawthat od did not shut the" up in hell to endure endless "isery. #e could not takethe" to hea&en/ for to brin! the" into the co"pany of the pure and holy would

    "ake the" perfectly "iserable. od will not take the" to hea&en$ neither will hecause the" to suffer eternally. #e will destroy the" utterly$ and cause the" to beas thou!h they had not been$ and then his ustice will be satisfied. #e for"ed "anout of the dust of the earth$ and the disobedient and unholy will be consu"ed byfire$ and return to dust a!ain. 3 saw that the bene&olence and co"passion of od inthis$ should lead all to ad"ire his character$ and to adore hi"/ and after the wickedshall be destroyed fro" off the earth$ all the hea&enly host will say$ A"en7

    Hell is not a'out writhing in ames &or all eternity, it will 'e aneternal death$

    Chapter /" !nother )llustration

    And those who ha&e scoffed and "ocked at the idea of the saints+ !oin! up$ will be&isited with the pla!ues of od$ and will reali8e that it is not a s"all thin! to triflewith hi".

    As no plagues have &allen yet here in /arch, 0112, this evidentlyre&ers to the !)),111 who will 'e moc(ed and sco=ed at &or'elieving they will go up to heaven$

    Chapter /$ The 0anctuary

    3 saw that while 'esus was in the (ost #oly place he would be "arried to the 9ew'erusale"$ and after his work should be acco"plished in the #oliest$ he would

    3 saw the rappin! delusion. Satan has power to brin! the appearance of for"s before us purportin! to be our relati&es and friends that now sleep in 'esus. 3t will be "ade to appear as if they were present$ the words they uttered while here$ whichwe were fa"iliar with$ will be spoken$ and the sa"e tone of &oice which they hadwhile li&in! will fall upon the ear.

    an!el who it was. Said he$ 3t is Satan. #e is the conductor in the for" of an an!elof li!ht. #e has taken the world capti&e. They are !i&en o&er to stron! delusions$ to

    belie&e a lie that they "ay be da"ned. #is a!ent$ the ne4t hi!hest in order to hi"$is the en!ineer$ and others of his a!ents are e"ployed in different offices as he "ayneed the"$ and they are all !oin! with li!htnin! speed to perdition. 3 asked thean!el if there were none left. #e bade "e look in an opposite direction$ and 3 saw alittle co"pany tra&elin! a narrow pathway. All see"ed to be fir"ly united$ and

    bound to!ether by the truth.

    What a picture; All the world except a little company a'oard atrain to hell;;

    This little co"pany looked care6worn$ as thou!h they had passed throu!h se&ere

    trials and conflicts. And it see"ed as if the sun had ust appeared fro" behind thecloud$ and shone upon their countenances$ and caused the" to look triu"phant$ asthou!h their &ictories were nearly won.

    3 saw that the 5ord had !i&en the world opportunity to disco&er the snare. This onethin! was e&idence enou!h for the *hristian if there were no other. There is nodifference "ade between the precious and the &ile.

    The deciding &actor to not get a'oard the train is not well (nownamong us 5As$ We must ma(e a clear distinction 'etween rightand wrong, good and 'ad$

    Tho"as Paine$ whose body has "ouldered to dust$ and who is to be called forth atthe end of the 1000 years$ at the second resurrection$ to recei&e his reward$ andsuffer the second death$ is purported by Satan to be in hea&en$ and hi!hly e4altedthere. Satan used hi" on earth as lon! as he could$ and now he is carryin! on thesa"e work throu!h pretensions of ha&in! Tho"as Paine so "uch e4alted and

    honored/ and as he tau!ht on earth$ Satan is "akin! it appear that he is teachin! inhea&en. And so"e on earth who ha&e looked with horror at his life and death$ andhis corrupt teachin!s while li&in!$ now sub"it to be tau!ht by hi" who was one ofthe &ilest and "ost corrupt of "en/ one who despised od and his law.

    4 don6t (now how to classi&y this one$ By the &ollowing, it appearsthat Thomas Daine will physically appear in the last days$

    that it co"es throu!h Tho"as Paine$ who was his de&oted ser&ant while he li&ed.ut this is the "asterpiece of Satan. All this teachin! purportin! to be fro"

    apostles$ and saints$ and wicked "en who ha&e died$ co"es directly fro" hisSatanic "a esty.

    /any little (nown prophecies in this chapter ++ Here we see thatsome o& atan6s angels will act the part o& apostles who havedied, while others will act the part o& wic(ed persons who havedied$ This is very clear that at the time o& this prophecy, there will'e literal, physical mani&estations o& supernatural power$ How willit &eel to turn on the T or clic( the mouse and see Deter, 8ohn,Daul etc$, 9ust as you would expect them to loo(, saying manywonder&ul things$ nly those who (now their God will 'e a'le to(now that these are atan6s agents$ And can you imagine the

    hatred you will stir up when you go to wor( that day and tell yourwor(+mates "That guy you see there on T who says he6s Deter +that6s really one o& the 5evil6s angels$" Derhaps /ohammed andBuddha will 'e re+enacted too$ This masterpiece o& atan willsurely 'ring all the world together, and those who oppose will 'eseen as 6terrorists6$

    This should be enou!h to re"o&e the &ail fro" e&ery "ind and disco&er unto allthe dark$ "ysterious works of Satan/ 66 that he has !ot one who" he lo&ed so well$and who hated od so perfectly$ with the holy apostles and an!els in !lory:&irtually sayin! to the world and infidels$ 9o "atter how wicked you are/ no"atter whether you belie&e in od or the ible$ or disbelie&e/ li&e as you please$hea&en is your ho"e/ 66 for e&eryone knows that if Tho"as Paine is in hea&en$ andso e4alted$ they will surely !et there. This is so !larin! that all "ay see if they will.Satan is doin! now what he has been tryin! to do since his fall$ throu!h indi&idualslike Tho"as Paine. #e is$ throu!h his power and lyin! wonders$ tearin! away thefoundation of the *hristians+ hope$ and puttin! out their sun that is to li!hten the"in the narrow way to hea&en. #e is "akin! the world belie&e that the ible is no

    #ere is a channel wholly de&oted to hi"self$ under his control$ and he can "akethe world belie&e what he will. The ook that is to ud!e hi" and his followers$ he

    puts back into the shade$ ust where he wants it. The Sa&iour of the world he "akesto be no "ore than a co""on "an/ and as the Ro"an !uard that watched the to"bof 'esus$ spread the false and lyin! report that the chief priests and elders put intheir "outh$ so will the poor$ deluded followers of these pretended spiritual"anifestations$ repeat$ and try to "ake it appear$ that there is nothin! "iraculousabout our Sa&iour+s birth$ death and resurrection/ and they put 'esus with the ible$

    back into the shade$ where they want hi"$ and then !et the world to look to the"and their lyin! wonders and "iracles$ which they declare far e4ceed the works of*hrist. Thus the world is taken in the snare$ and lulled to security/ not to find outtheir awful deception$ until the se&en last pla!ues are poured out. Satan lau!hs ashe sees his plan succeed so well$ and the whole world in the snare.

    atan has carried out his plan well o& getting us to destroy love&or each other3

    3 saw that Satan carried out his plans well. And as the ser&ants of od appointed"eetin!s$ Satan and his an!els understood their business$ and were on the !roundto hinder the work of od$ and he was constantly puttin! su!!estions into the"inds of od+s people. So"e he leads in one way$ and so"e in another$ alwaystakin! ad&anta!e of e&il traits in the brethren and sisters$ e4citin! and stirrin! uptheir natural beset"ents. 3f they are disposed to be selfish and co&etous$ Satan iswell pleased to take his stand by their side$ and then with all his power he seeks tolead the" to "anifest their besettin! sins. 3f the !race of od and the li!ht of truth"elt away these co&etous$ selfish feelin!s for a little$ and they do not obtain entire&ictory o&er the"$ when they are not under a sa&in! influence$ Satan co"es in andwithers up e&ery noble$ !enerous principle$ and they think that they ha&e to do too"uch. They beco"e weary of well6doin! and for!et all about the !reat sacrifice'esus "ade for the"$ to redee" the" fro" the power of Satan$ and hopeless"isery.

    The interesting thing here that is not well+(nown, is there aretimes when we "are not under a saving in uence"$ This snu=s outthe idea o& 6once saved always saved6$

    Satan took ad&anta!e of 'udas+ co&etous$ selfish disposition$ and led hi" to"ur"ur a!ainst the oint"ent (ary dedicated to 'esus. 'udas looked upon it as a!reat waste/ it "i!ht ha&e been sold and !i&en to the poor. #e cared not for the

    poor$ but considered the liberal offerin! to 'esus e4tra&a!ant. 'udas pri8ed his 5ord ust enou!h to sell hi" for a few pieces of sil&er. And 3 saw that there were so"elike 'udas a"on! those who profess to be waitin! for their 5ord. Satan has thecontrol o&er the"$ but they know it not. 9ot a particle of co&etousness orselfishness can od approbate. #e hates it$ and he despises the prayers ande4hortations of those who possess it. As Satan sees his ti"e is short$ he leads the"on to be "ore and "ore selfish$ "ore and "ore co&etous$ and then e4ults as hesees the" wrapt up in the"sel&es$ close$ penurious and selfish. 3f the eyes of suchcould be opened$ they would see Satan in hellish triu"ph$ e4ultin! o&er the"$ andlau!hin! at the folly of those who accept his su!!estions$ and enter his snares.Then he and his an!els take the "ean and co&etous acts of these indi&iduals$ and

    present the" to 'esus and the holy an!els$ and reproachfully say$ These are *hrist+sfollowers7 They are !ettin! ready to be translated7 Satan "arks their de&iatin!course$ and then co"pares it with the ible$ with passa!es which plainly rebuke

    such thin!s$ and then presents it to annoy the hea&enly an!els$ sayin!$ These arefollowin! *hrist and his word7 These are the fruits of *hrist+s sacrifice andrede"ption7 An!els turn in dis!ust fro" the scene. od re2uires a constant doin!on the part of his people$ and when they beco"e weary of well and !enerousdoin!$ he beco"es weary of the". 3 saw that od was !reatly displeased with theleast "anifestation of selfishness on the part of his professed people$ for who"'esus has not spared his own precious life. )&ery selfish$ co&etous indi&idual willfall out by the way. 5ike 'udas$ who sold his 5ord$ they will sell !ood principles$and a noble$ !enerous disposition for a little of earth+s !ain. All such will be siftedout fro" od+s people. Those who want hea&en$ "ust$ with e&ery ener!y they

    This is little (nown, 'ut not so important + 9ust that the cloud 8esusta(es us to heaven on has wheels that are alive, and the wholething is called a chariot$ 4s there some signi.cance that we willma(e a s7uare around 8esus and not a circle, which is what is

    normally done when surrounding someone:

    Then 3 saw a &ery !reat nu"ber of an!els brin! fro" the city !lorious crowns/ acrown for e&ery saint with his na"e written thereon/ and as 'esus called for thecrowns$ an!els presented the" to hi"$ and the lo&ely 'esus$ with his own ri!hthand$ placed the crowns on the heads of the saints. 3n the sa"e "anner$ the an!els

    brou!ht the harps$ and 'esus presented the" also to the saints. The co""andin!

    an!els first struck the note$ and then e&ery &oice was raised in !rateful$ happy praise$ and e&ery hand skillfully swept o&er the strin!s of the harp$ sendin! forth"elodious "usic in rich and perfect strains. Then 3 saw 'esus lead the redee"edco"pany to the !ate of the city. #e laid hold of the !ate and swun! it back on its!litterin! hin!es$ and bade the nations who had kept the truth to enter in. There wase&erythin! in the city to feast the eye. Rich !lory they beheld e&erywhere. Then'esus looked upon his redee"ed saints/ their countenances were radiant with !lory/and as he fi4ed his lo&in! eyes upon the"$ he said$ with his rich$ "usical &oice$ 3

    behold the tra&ail of "y soul$ and a" satisfied. This rich !lory is yours to en oyeternally. ;our sorrows are ended. There shall be no "ore death$ neither sorrow$nor cryin!$ neither shall there be any "ore pain. 3 saw the redee"ed host bow andcast their !litterin! crowns at the feet of 'esus$ and then$ as his lo&ely hand raisedthe" up$ they touched their !olden harps$ and filled all hea&en with their "usic$and son!s to the 5a"b.

    ne thing that might not 'e so well (nown, is that our crowns willeach have their owner6s name on them thus showing that heavenis not communist-, and that 8esus will place each crown on ourheads$ As i can6t do much with musical instruments here, it will 'e

    a miracle to 'e a'le to play my harp s(ill&ully3-

    3 then saw 'esus leadin! the redee"ed host to the tree of life$ and a!ain we heardhis lo&ely &oice$ richer than any "usic that e&er fell on "ortal ear$ sayin!$ Thelea&es of this tree are for the healin! of the nations. )at ye all of it. pon the treeof life was "ost beautiful fruit$ which the saints could partake of freely. There wasa "ost !lorious throne in the *ity$ and fro" under the throne proceeded a pure

Satan suffers in this ti"e e4tre"ely. Since his fallhis e&il traits ha&e been in constant e4ercise. #e is then depri&ed of his power$ andleft to reflect upon the part he has acted since his fall$ and to look forward withtre"blin! and terror to the dreadful future$ when he "ust suffer for all the e&il hehas done$ and be punished for all the sins he has caused to be co""itted.

    atan has 'een very 'usy &or a long time, 'ut then he can6t evengo to other planets to tempt others$ He6ll have !111 years to thin(things over$

    Then 3 heard shouts of triu"ph fro" the an!els$ and fro" the redee"ed saints$which sounded like ten thousand "usical instru"ents$ because they were to be no"ore annoyed and te"pted by the De&il$ and the inhabitants of other worlds weredeli&ered fro" his presence and his te"ptations.

    ery &ew people are aware that atan still annoys the un&allenangels today$ atan is present on other worlds too now, trying tocontinue his re'ellion$ But then it will 'e all over + praise God;;

    Then 3 saw thrones$ and 'esus and the redee"ed saints sat upon the"/ and thesaints rei!ned as kin!s and priests unto od$ and the wicked dead were ud!ed$ andtheir acts were co"pared with the statute book$ the word of od$ and they were

    ud!ed accordin! to the deeds done in the body. 'esus$ in union with the saints$"eted out to the wicked the portion they "ust suffer$ accordin! to their works/ andit was written in the book of death$ and set off a!ainst their na"es. Satan and hisan!els were also ud!ed by 'esus and the saints. Satan+s punish"ent was to be far!reater than that of those who" he had decei&ed. 3t so far e4ceeded their

    punish"ent that it could not be co"pared with theirs. After all those who" he haddecei&ed had perished$ Satan was to still li&e and suffer on "uch lon!er.

    After the ud!"ent of the wicked dead was finished$ at the end of the one thousandyears$ 'esus left the *ity$ and a train of the an!elic host followed hi". The saintsalso went with hi". 'esus descended upon a !reat and "i!hty "ountain$ which$ assoon as his feet touched it$ parted asunder$ and beca"e a "i!hty plain.
