4 WHAT IS THE TIME OF THE END? The prophecies present a succession of events leading down to the opening of the judgment. This is especially true of the book of Daniel. But that part of his prophecy which related to the last days, Daniel was bidden to close up and seal "to the time of the end." … The "man of sin," which is also styled "the mystery of iniquity," "the son of perdition," and "that wicked," represents the papacy, which, as foretold in prophecy, was to maintain its supremacy for 1260 years. This period ended in {Great Controversy, p. 356}

5 WHO WAS THE KING OF THE SOUTH IN 1798? The period when the two witnesses were to prophesy clothed in sackcloth, ended in As they were approaching the termination of their work in obscurity, war was to be made upon them by the power represented as "the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit." In many of the nations of Europe the powers that ruled in church and state had for centuries been controlled by Satan through the medium of the papacy. … The period when the two witnesses were to prophesy clothed in sackcloth, ended in As they were approaching the termination of their work in obscurity, war was to be made upon them by the power represented as "the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit." In many of the nations of Europe the powers that ruled in church and state had for centuries been controlled by Satan through the medium of the papacy. But here is brought to view a new manifestation of satanic power…

6 WHO WAS THE KING OF THE SOUTH IN 1798? Of all nations presented in Bible history, Egypt most boldly denied the existence of the living God and resisted His commands. No monarch ever ventured upon more open and highhanded rebellion against the authority of Heaven than did the king of Egypt. When the message was brought him by Moses, in the name of the Lord, Pharaoh proudly answered: "Who is Jehovah, that I should hearken unto His voice to let Israel go? I know not Jehovah, and moreover I will not let Israel go." Exodus 5:2, A.R.V… "The great city" in whose streets the witnesses are slain, and where their dead bodies lie, is "spiritually" Egypt. Of all nations presented in Bible history, Egypt most boldly denied the existence of the living God and resisted His commands. No monarch ever ventured upon more open and highhanded rebellion against the authority of Heaven than did the king of Egypt. When the message was brought him by Moses, in the name of the Lord, Pharaoh proudly answered: "Who is Jehovah, that I should hearken unto His voice to let Israel go? I know not Jehovah, and moreover I will not let Israel go." Exodus 5:2, A.R.V…

7 WHO WAS THE KING OF THE SOUTH IN 1798? This is atheism, and the nation represented by Egypt would give voice to a similar denial of the claims of the living God and would manifest a like spirit of unbelief and defiance. "The great city" is also compared, "spiritually," to Sodom. The corruption of Sodom in breaking the law of God was especially manifested in licentiousness. And this sin was also to be a pre-eminent characteristic of the nation that should fulfill the specifications of this scripture… This prophecy has received a most exact and striking fulfillment in the history of France… During the Revolution, in 1793… {Great Controversy, pp. 269 and 270}

8 This compromise between paganism and Christianity resulted in the development of "the man of sin" foretold in prophecy as opposing and exalting himself above God. That gigantic system of false religion is a masterpiece of Satan's power--a monument of his efforts to seat himself upon the throne to rule the earth according to his will. {Great Controversy, p. 50} WHO WAS THE KING OF THE NORTH IN 1798?

10 1798 In 1798 French armies under General Louis Alexandre Berthier marched on Rome, which had been declared a republic by Roman revolutionaries in league with the French, and demanded that Pius renounce his temporal sovereignty. At his refusal the pope was taken prisoner and held first at Siena and ultimately at Valence, France, where he died. {Encarta Encyclopedia, 2002.}

14 Jacobins: In 1789 Breton members of the States- General met in a Dominican (French: Jacobin) monastery to form the Jacobin Club. By 1791, it had branches throughout France. By 1792, Robespierre had seized control of the Jacobins and the club adopted more radical policies. Political club of the French Revolution.

By 1792, Robespierre had seized control of the Jacobins and the club adopted more radical policies. In 1793, they engineered the expulsion of the Girondins and the club became an instrument of the Reign of Terror. It collapsed after Robespierre's downfall in {World Encyclopedia, 2005}

15 There are striking analogies in history. The Jacobin of 1793 has become the communist of our day. {Communism, Revolution, and a Free Poland – Karl Marxs Speech} Brussels, Belgium February 22, 1848 WHO WAS KARL MARX?

16 Marx, Karl Heinrich (1818–83) German social philosopher, political theorist, and founder (with Friedrich Engels) of international communism. He produced his own philosophical approach of dialectical materialism. He proclaimed that religion was the opium of the people and in (1845– 46), written with Engels, described the inevitable laws of history. In Brussels, he joined the Communist League and wrote with Engels the epoch-making Communist Manifesto (1848). {World Encyclopedia, 2005}

17 THE BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION The modern form of Communism began to develop with the split (1903) within the Russian Social Democratic Labor party into factions of Bolshevism and Menshevism. The more radical wing, the Bolsheviks, were led by Lenin and advocated immediate and violent revolution to bring about the downfall of capitalism and the establishment of an international socialist state. The triumph of the Bolsheviks in the Russian Revolution of 1917 gave them the leadership in socialist action. They constituted the Communist party in {The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6 th Ed., 2007} WHO WAS LENIN?

18 Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich (1870–1924) Russian revolutionary. He evolved a revolutionary doctrine, based principally on Marxism, in which he emphasized the need for a vanguard party to lead the revolution. In 1900, Lenin went abroad and founded what became the Bolsheviks (1903). After the first part of the Russian Revolution of 1917, he returned to Russia. He denounced the liberal republican government of Kerensky and demanded armed revolt. After the Bolshevik revolution (November 1917), Lenin became leader of the first Soviet government. {World Encyclopedia, 2005} Strange as it may sound; if the TRUTH is Known, the Vatican Funded Lenin; in a plan to overcome Russian Orthodoxy!

19 Jacobinism Marxism Communism

20 Until recently, the battalions of Marxism seemed to have the upper hand over the soldiers of the Cross. In the wake of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, Lenin had pledged toleration but delivered terror. Russia turned crimson with the blood of martyrs, says Father Gleb Yakunin, Russian Orthodoxys bravest agitator for religious freedom. COMMUNISM vs. CATHOLICISM?

21 In the Bolsheviks first five years in power, 28 bishops and 1,200 priests were cut down by the red sickle. Stalin greatly accelerated the terror, and by the end of Khrushchevs rule, liquidation of the clergy reached an estimated 50,000. After World War II, fierce but generally less bloody persecution spread into the Ukraine and the new Soviet bloc, affecting millions of Roman Catholics and Protestants as well as Orthodox. {TIME - December 4, }

22 Of all the events that have shaken the Soviet bloc in 1989, none is more fraught with historyor more implausiblethan the polite encounter to take place this week in Vatican City. There, in the spacious ceremonial library of the 16th century Apostolic Palace, the czar of world atheism, Mikhail Gorbachev, will visit the Vicar of Christ, Pope John Paul II. … 1989

23 The moment will be electric, not only because John Paul helped inflame the fervor for freedom in his Polish homeland that swept like brush fire across Eastern Europe. Beyond that, the meeting of the two men symbolizes the end of the 20th centurys most dramatic spiritual war, a conflict in which the seemingly irresistible force of Communism battered against the immovable object of Christianity. {TIME - December 4, 1989.} The moment will be electric, not only because John Paul helped inflame the fervor for freedom in his Polish homeland that swept like brush fire across Eastern Europe.

27 While Communism is still a great force and will, no doubt, yet reveal great strength and occasion further bloodshed in fighting for its existence, yet recent revelations indicate that someday in the not-too- distant future, the forces of atheistic Communism will be temporarily subdued by the combined forces of Christendom. Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

28 This eventuality, which is even now discernible as emerging from the events precipitated by the Hungarian unrest, has been outlined in Bible prophecy to occur as one of the "great changes" bringing about "the final movements" which "will be rapid ones." (See Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 11). For when the way is open for the rise of the political power of the Papacy, it will not be long before God's people will experience persecution, which will greatly hasten the coming of the close of probation and the commencement of the day of God's wrath… Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

29 When Communism's prestige, power and influence have diminished sufficiently so that it is no longer able to prevent her from reaching her goal, "many of the prophecies" will "be fulfilled in quick succession." … Communism is the one great internationally organized enemy which stands in the way of Papal political ascendancy. When Communism's prestige, power and influence have diminished sufficiently so that it is no longer able to prevent her from reaching her goal, "many of the prophecies" will "be fulfilled in quick succession." … Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

30 those troubles among the nations leading to and during that time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. (See Daniel 12: 1)… We are thus directed to the concluding verses of the prophecy of Daniel eleven for an understanding of those world-shaking events, those troubles among the nations leading to and during that time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. (See Daniel 12: 1)… Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

31 Do world conditions indicate that the time for her to strike is near? The uprisings against Communistic domination in Roman Catholic countries Hungary, Poland, etc.- have revealed that the Papal forces are preparing to strike back, and are willing to join forces even with Protestants for this purpose. These incidents indicate not only a present struggle, but foreshadow future strife as these two forces become more and more locked in deadly conflict. Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

32 Thus we may grasp an idea of the intensity and the scope of the present, tense situation. Two giants are at grips groping for a stranglehold on each other. Their conflicting forces are the subjects of the closing verses of Daniel 11. These verses describe, not small, insignificant powers, but the contest between two formidable forces whose clashing interests jeopardize the peace of mankind. We need not wonder as to the outcome, for the Scriptures and the Spirit of Prophecy emphatically declare: (1) that the Papal forces are destined to exert a temporary, brief power over atheistic Communism, and Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

33 (2) that Papal power, however, will be dissipated suddenly when God intervenes to save His people from death at the hands of the beast and the false prophet. Then, the enemies of the Papacy will wreak belated vengeance upon this religious tyrannical power that is now "employing every device to extend her influence and increase her power in preparation for a fierce and determined conflict to regain control of the world, to re-establish persecution, and to undo all that Protestantism has done." (See The Great Controversy, 565) … Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

34 Should there be further uprisings in previously Papal-dominated countries against Communistic rule, it would then appear that the Papacy feels that the time has come to strike out against her worldwide foe, to weaken and later to overthrow. By her uprisings in this way she could influence the Protestant world to believe that she is indeed the bulwark against the dreaded Communistic regime. In this way Protestants are led to sympathize with Roman Catholics, leading to a bond of fellowship between them in the political sphere… Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

35 From this remarkable prophecy we are able to understand the present uprisings in Roman Catholic countries against the Communists. We are also able to know that "many countries" (Daniel 11:40-41) will be dominated by Papal influence, and that "the land of Egypt shall not escape." Verse 42. That is, "all the world will wonder after the beast"… Excerpts from Preparing for the Close of Probation by Louis F. Were, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

36 The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, 1949 Within the last few decades, amid the rumblings and the ruins of two World Wars, the United States of America has emerged paramount and dynamic on the stage of global politics AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

37 The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, 1949 From across the great land mass of Eurasia, Russia---the bastion of Communism, equally dynamic in its struggle to build up new political structure---is challengingly waiting for the tumbling of the old pattern of society, confident that time is on her side. At the same time, the Catholic Church, seemingly preoccupied only with its religious tasks, is feverishly engaged in a race for the ultimate spiritual conquest of the world… 1989 AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

38 The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, 1949 But whereas the exertions of the U.S.A. and of the U.S.S.R., are followed with growing apprehension, those of the Vatican are seldom scrutinized. Yet not a single event of importance that has contributed to the present chaotic state of affairs has occurred without the Vatican taking an active part in it… 1989 AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

39 The Catholic population of the world millions----is more numerous than that of the United States and Soviet Russia put together. When it is remembered that the concerted activities of this gigantic spiritual mass depend on the lips of a single man, the apathy of non- Catholic American should swiftly turn to keenest attention. His interest, furthermore, should increase when he is made aware that the United States is intimately involved in the attainment of both the immediate and the ultimate goals of the Vatican. The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

40 These goals are: 1. The annihilation of Communism and of Soviet Russia. 2. The spiritual conquest of the U.S.A. 3. The ultimate Catholicization of the world. Do these goals seem fantastic? The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

41 Unfortunately they are neither speculation nor wild and idle dreams. They are as indisputable and as inextricably a part of contemporary history as the rise of Hitler, the defeat of Japan, the splitting of the atom, the existence of Communism. Indeed the inescapable alternative by which mankind today is confronted is not whether this will be the American or the Russian Century, but whether this might not after all become the Catholic Century. The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

42 Surely, then, the nature, aims and workings of the Catholic Church deserve some scrutiny. The American citizen, perturbed by the past, bewildered by the present and made increasingly anxious about the future, would do well to ponder the exertions of the Vatican in contemporary American and world politics. His destiny as well as the destiny of the United States, and indeed of mankind, has been and will continue to be profoundly affected by the activities of an institution which, although a church, is nonetheless as mighty a political power as the mightiest nation on the planet. The Vatican in World Politics (Preface to the American Edition) by Avro Manhattan, AND THE WHIRLWIND OF RETALIATION!

43 HISTORY AND PROPHECY MUST AGREE

44 To know whether we have the true historical event for the fulfilment of a prophecy. If you find every word of the prophecy (after the figures are understood) is literally fulfilled, then you may know that your history is the true event. But if one word lacks a fulfillment, then you must look for another event, or wait its future development. For God takes care that history and prophecy doth agree, so that the true believing children of God may never be ashamed. {William Millers 13 th Rule of Prophetic Interpretation}

49 We are living in the time of the end. The fast- fulfilling signs of the times declare that the coming of Christ is near at hand. The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth. Plagues and judgments are already falling upon the despisers of the grace of God. The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude… 911

50 On one occasion, when in New York City, I was in the night season called upon to behold buildings rising story after story toward heaven. These buildings were warranted to be fireproof, and they were erected to glorify the owners and builders. Higher and still higher these buildings rose, and in them the most costly material was used. Those to whom these buildings belonged were not asking themselves: "How can we best glorify God?" The Lord was not in their thoughts… VOLUME 9, PAGE

51 The scene that next passed before me was an alarm of fire. Men looked at the lofty and supposedly fire-proof buildings and said: "They are perfectly safe." But these buildings were consumed as if made of pitch. The fire engines could do nothing to stay the destruction. The firemen were unable to operate the engines… VOLUME 9, PAGE

52 The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place. {Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, pp } VOLUME 9, PAGE

54 "How comes the word that I have declared that New York is to be swept away by a tidal wave? This I have never said. I have said, as I looked at the great buildings going up there, story after story, 'What terrible scenes will take place when the Lord shall arise to shake terribly the earth! The whole of the eighteenth chapter of Revelation is a warning of what is coming on the earth. But I have no light in particular in regard to what is coming on New York, From the light given me, I know that destruction is in the world. Scenes will take place the fearfulness of which we can not imagine. {Review & Herald, July 5, 1906 par. 14} "How comes the word that I have declared that New York is to be swept away by a tidal wave? This I have never said. I have said, as I looked at the great buildings going up there, story after story, 'What terrible scenes will take place when the Lord shall arise to shake terribly the earth! Then the words of Rev. 18:1-3 will be fulfilled.' The whole of the eighteenth chapter of Revelation is a warning of what is coming on the earth. But I have no light in particular in regard to what is coming on New York, only that I know that one day the great buildings there will be thrown down by the turning and overturning of God's power. From the light given me, I know that destruction is in the world. One word from the Lord, one touch of his mighty power, and these massive structures will fall. Scenes will take place the fearfulness of which we can not imagine. {Review & Herald, July 5, 1906 par. 14}

56 Our Current Crisis!

57 The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones…

58 The enemy has succeeded in perverting justice and in filling men's hearts with the desire for selfish gain. "Justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." Isaiah 59:14… The cries of starving humanity are coming up before God, while by every species of oppression and extortion men are piling up colossal fortunes… of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. {Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, pp } The enemy has succeeded in perverting justice and in filling men's hearts with the desire for selfish gain.

They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. {Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, pp }

59 The land boom has cursed this country, extravagant prices have been paid for lands bought on credit; then the land must be cleared, and more money is hired; a house to be built calls for more money, and then interest with open mouth swallows up all the profits. {Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 317} The land boom has cursed this country, extravagant prices have been paid for lands bought on credit; then the land must be cleared, and more money is hired; a house to be built calls for more money, and then interest with open mouth swallows up all the profits. Debts accumulate, and then come the closing and failure of banks, and then the foreclosure of mortgages. {Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 317}

60 Satan says, "I will work at cross purposes with God. I will empower my followers to set aside God's memorial, the seventh-day Sabbath. Thus I will show the world that the day sanctified and blessed by God has been changed. That day shall not live in the minds of the people. I will obliterate the memory of it. I will place in its stead a day that does not bear the credentials of God, a day that cannot be a sign between God and His people…

61 I will lead those who accept this day to place upon it the sanctity that God placed upon the seventh day… Through my vicegerent, I will exalt myself. Through the nonobservance of the Sabbath that God instituted, I will bring His law into contempt. The words, 'A sign between Me and you throughout your generations,' I will make to serve on the side of my sabbath… I will lead those who accept this day to place upon it the sanctity that God placed upon the seventh day… Through my vicegerent, I will exalt myself. The first day will be extolled, and the Protestant world will receive this spurious sabbath as genuine. Through the nonobservance of the Sabbath that God instituted, I will bring His law into contempt. The words, 'A sign between Me and you throughout your generations,' I will make to serve on the side of my sabbath…

62 "Thus the world will become mine. I will be the ruler of the earth, the prince of the world. I will so control the minds under my power that God's Sabbath shall be a special object of contempt. A sign? I will make the observance of the seventh day a sign of disloyalty to the authorities of earth. Human laws will be made so stringent that men and women will not dare to observe the seventh-day Sabbath. For fear of wanting food and clothing, they will join with the world in transgressing God's law. The earth will be wholly under my dominion." {Prophets and Kings, pp. 183, 184}

63 In India, China, Russia, and the cities of America, thousands of men and women are dying of starvation. They purchase at low rates all they can obtain, and then sell at greatly increased prices. There will be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. [Daniel 12:1, 2 quoted] (General manuscript, untitled, typed August 13, 1899.) In India, China, Russia, and the cities of America, thousands of men and women are dying of starvation. The monied men, because they have the power, control the market. They purchase at low rates all they can obtain, and then sell at greatly increased prices. This means starvation to the poorer classes, and will result in a civil war. There will be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. [Daniel 12:1, 2 quoted] (General manuscript, untitled, typed August 13, 1899.) {Manuscript Releases, vol. 5, p. 305}

64 While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power.
