The Trumpets and Daniel 11

The Trumpets and Daniel 11


​Revelation 8:1

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
As we know the ½ an hour is 7 days and I wish to tie this to the confirmation of the covenant of Daniel 9.
Daniel 9:27
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
This text begins with the history of Christ’s earthly ministry from 27-34 AD and in our day points to the time period of 9/11-MC


Revelation 8:2
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
The only other place in the Bible where a scene like this is found is in the narrative of Joshua chapters 5&6. Prior to the fall of Jericho, in chapter 5, Joshua is documented to have kept the Passover feast with the children of Israel. The Israelites at this time were those born during the wilderness sojourn and hadn’t been circumcised. This Passover, as expressed in the above summary, is, I contend, the PBM (Prediction before MN); which in the history of the Millerites was given on May 2, 1844. This date of Millerite history happened to fall on the 14th day of the first month when the Karaite reckoning is used.
This Passover Feast was held just before the conquest of Jericho one of the vilest cites in the practice of idolatry. There also Joshua saw the Angel of the covenant (Christ) who gave him instruction for the conquest of this city. Thirteen times were they to march around the city: men of war in front, Priests with the trumpets following, and the Ark of the Lord behind these.
“And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.” Joshua 6:4-5.
The word for trumpet here is H7782 Shopar which is the trumpet used for war.
Also Revelation 1:20 says
“The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.”
Here we again see seven angels or messengers. Also in the sanctuary services each morning and evening at the time of the morning and evening sacrifice the trumpeters would sound and theirs’ were the only sound heard in the services.

Revelation 8:3-4
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
What altar is here mentioned?
“And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail: And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:” Leviticus 16:12, 13.
Here, the Brazen Altar is what’s being referenced. This altar was where the coals were taken from to light the Altar of Incense which had to be burning simultaneously with consuming sacrifice. The incense can be shown to represent the atoning blood of Christ.
“Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, who ministered in the holy office of priesthood, partook freely of wine and, as was their usual custom, went in to minister before the Lord. The priests who burned incense before the Lord were required to use the fire of God’s kindling, which burned day and night and was never extinguished. God gave explicit directions how every part of His service should be conducted, that all connected with His sacred worship might be in accordance with His holy character. And any deviation from the express directions of God in connection with His holy service was punishable with death.
“No sacrifice would be acceptable to God which was not salted or seasoned with divine fire, which represented the communication between God and man that was opened through Jesus Christ alone. The holy fire which was to be put upon the censer was kept burning perpetually. And while the people of God were without, earnestly praying, the incense kindled by the holy fire was to arise before God mingled with their prayers. This incense was an emblem of the mediation of Christ”. Confrontation, page 80.2.

Revelation 8:5
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Why was this coal cast into the earth?
After the Altar of Incense was lit the next service to be performed was the lighting of the lamps. The lamps were also lit using the coal that was taken into the censer and as Revelation 1:20 says the lamps represent the seven churches.
“Christ is spoken of as walking in the midst of the golden candlesticks. Thus is symbolized His relation to the churches. He is in constant communication with His people. He knows their true state. He observes their order, their piety, their devotion. Although He is high priest and mediator in the sanctuary above, yet He is represented as walking up and down in the midst of His churches on the earth. With untiring wakefulness and unremitting vigilance, He watches to see whether the light of any of His sentinels is burning dim or going out. If the candlesticks were left to mere human care, the flickering flame would languish and die; but He is the true watchman in the Lord’s house, the true warden of the temple courts. His continued care and sustaining grace are the source of life and light.” Acts of the Apostles, page 586.1}
The lighting of the lamps was done twice daily, morning and evening, and was done at the same time as the lighting of the Altar of Incense and the whole burnt offering. In 1989 Ronald Reagan’s campaign slogan was “morning in America” while Hilary Clinton said: “Trump will take us from morning to Midnight.” At the TOE there came an increase of knowledge which I submit to be the lighting of the lamps in the morning and again in the evening which I’m saying represents the increase of knowledge on the PBM which is to prepare God’s people for MN and onwards.

Revelation 8:6-7
“And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”
I know that these trumpets are placed on the line from 1989 onward but my thoughts are that the first four trumpets fit also between MN-MC based on the following quote: “We have no time to lose. Troublous times are before us. The world is stirred with the spirit of war. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place. The prophecy in the eleventh of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Much of the history that has taken place in fulfillment of this prophecy will be repeated. In the thirtieth verse a power is spoken of that “shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.” [Verses 31-36, quoted.] – {13MR 394.1}
Scenes similar to those described in these words will take place. We see evidence that Satan is fast obtaining the control of human minds who have not the fear of God before them. Let all read and understand the prophecies of this book, for we are now entering upon the time of trouble spoken of: [Daniel 12:1-4, quoted.]” – {13MR 394.2}.
She here says a power is to be grieved and then returns and have indignation against the holy covenant and these are the four trumpets which brought Rome to its division of ten and the battle of Raphia is what pushes America to becoming the premier King of the ten kings at MC. These are judgments on America which will break them; the first trumpet worked on land, the second by sea.

Is it redundancy to place them between these two points, and could placing them there add more depth to our understanding of these things? We at the Last Waymark Ministry think the latter, and not the former, is so.
