If these numbers mean nothing to you, you’re in the wrong church! God identified His last day church, His “Remnant” (a part of the whole, or remaining) Church in Rev. 12:17 as “keeping the Commandments of God” AND “having the ‘testimony’ of Jesus Christ. We know full well what His Commandments are (Exo. 20: 3-17) but what is the “testimony of Jesus”? Rev. 19:11 answers it for it states: “the testimony of Jesus is the ‘Spirit of Prophecy’. What is the “spirit of prophecy”? The gift given to the last-day church, not church(es), but “CHURCH”, only one, to be able to understand, THEN teach those who DO NOT UNDERSTAND events which will occur in the last days. So, again, my question to you is, IF you do not know what these numbers mean, and they’re not being discussed in your church, you cannot possibly be in the “Remnant” church, therefore, as quoted in Rev. 14, “you need to come out of her” her being the fallen or “apostate” church.
The times are serious, Friends. It’s a time of sobering consideration what is happening right in front of our eyes. Are you seeing? Rev. 13 is happening right now. Not tomorrow, not in the next decade or millennium, but RIGHT NOW! Do you understand this? If you KNEW something would happen to me, as your friend, wouldn’t you advise me? I would hope so. Then how can you not think I would do the same for you? I’m held and obligated, by God, to do exactly this, so I watch. I listen. I discern the times, and then I warn. It saddens me when I consider religious history and what has happened to those God chose to warn the others. The fate they met; but, I cannot concern myself with what you think of me. I love you and if I didn’t love God, then I , and others like me, would just keep these things to ourselves, but we can’t.
We want to let you know what is happening before it is too late. Zec. 8:23, Zechariah was given a last day prophecy which is for our time. Did you know this? He said, through the spirit of prophecy: “Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.”
I don’t wear a skirt, but you know what he meant. I’m not a physical Jew either, but a “spiritual” Jew. Now, don’t get it twisted. Jew doesn’t mean what you think it might mean. Jew is also translated, “chosen of God”. I believe I’m chosen. How about you? Then you’re a Jew and if you are, you should know these things so others will come to you for understanding.
But, I don’t know everything so I will put the question to those other Bible Prophecy Scholars: what does Dan. 12:11, 12 mean regarding 1,290 and 1,335? I need to know, too.
