After what seems like a great, long time, working at a snail’s pace, I am pleased to announce that my prophecy DVDs are up on the Internet. I hope you will watch them, and if you do you’re in for a delightful surprise. Here is what some viewers said about them:

 “The Seventh Era Series is Amazing! Using the Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy, and the conclusions of the Millerite and Adventist pioneers as a basis, Ms. Campbell has constructed a typical/antitypical timeline and a very plausible end-time scenario. Every Seventh Day Adventist should see this DVD series. It is an invaluable tool; a systematic and logical study of end time events, specifically designed for Seventh Day Adventists, that will aid them in preparing for the soon coming of Jesus.”      John, Wisconsin

“I’ve met with and listened to the author teach on Sabbaths for several years now, and it has always been such a treat to hear this expanded view of end-time events. I appreciate its agreement with the foundation laid in earlier days. This model of prophecy is the clearest and most reasonable I have ever seen.” Kathy, Idaho

“[There is] something new with each DVD. [It doesn’t] promise dollars and pay off in nickels. Any serious student of the Bible will find this material compelling. They may not agree but if they wish to rebut, they need to challenge a mountain of material… The result is a ‘mind blowing’ view of Earth’s final events.” Terry, Seattle

Thank you Marilyn. I have your DVD’s and they are great! Kelly, Somewhere

 Be sure to watch the videos in order. Otherwise, you will get confused and won’t receive the benefit from them that is there for you. So WATCH THEM IN ORDER! I have tried to make this easy for you by listing them in order. But if you watch them out of order, I take no responsibility for what you may THINK they say. The link is: http://www.AdventistApocalypse.com.

 [Perhaps I should say, that I am having some trouble with my webmaster. Ordinarily, he’s very reasonable, but perhaps because of the weight of business or for whatever reason, getting him to do anything on these DVDs has been like pulling teeth! There is still a lot wrong with them. For example, it’s not possible to go into YouTube and watch them in order. So I am still working with/on him to make the numbering correct so they can be watched in order on YouTube. With that in mind, you can still watch them in order by going into the above site and watching them that way, not being surprised by the occasional “glitch.”]

 Maranatha!

Awwwww—vacation time! I will be taking some time off my blog to take care of some other things that require my full attention. Look for me back in about a month or so.

Meantime, I have a surprise for you. I am putting my prophecy DVDs online—full and uncensored—over the next few weeks. They will appear on my www.AdventistApocalypse.com web site, on www.YouTube.com, and on  www.3AngelsTube.com (as soon as they allow uploading again). My webmaster has her instructions, so don’t hassle her about this. They’ll be uploaded as soon as possible.

 “Now, unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen” (Jude 24).

Have a wonderful summer!

For those who have read The Seventh Era: Advanced Prophecy for SDAs let me ask you this question: Is it right or wrong? Since no one has all the truth, are my prophetic understandings more right than wrong?

I dislike boasting, but I have to say, If my view of prophecy is correct, shouldn’t it be mentioned? A few days ago I got into a discussion of the slaughter of Ezekiel 9 and put it in the setting of my understanding of prophecy. The person with whom I was speaking implied I was fanatical for so doing. He spoke as though my interpretation of prophecy was flawed, as if it was one interpretation among many, and here I was giving it the status of truth.

For the benefit of all, yes, it is truth. I could say, I believe it to be truth, but that would not be strong enough to convey my belief in it. I went to a lot of trouble, spent a lot of money, even had a stroke, to make it readily available on the Internet. No one has yet shown me my error. Until they do, I will continue to believe and speak about events of prophecy within this setting.

Has any other Adventist told you what the warning is in Daniel 12? Have they informed you how the Seals, Angels, Trumpets, and Plagues go together? Has anyone else shown you what the Daniel 12 timelines mean and how they fit in with last-day events?

I remember once hearing a man remark, “Truth is always truth, even if no one believes it.” And in the case of this truth, it must be emphasized, it could save your life one day.

Assuming that all truth comes from Jesus, it might be said that these prophetic interpretations are that elusive truth which the “builders” rejected, but is destined to become the chief cornerstone. It’s always that way on planet earth.

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show you the things which must be hereafter” (Revelation 4:1).

Adventist have long understood this text; they believe they know what it means. They take their cues from Uriah Smith, who says about it, “The expression ‘after this’ does not denote that what is recorded in chapter 4 and onward was to take place after the fulfillment of everything recorded in the three preceding chapters. It means only that after the prophet had seen and heard what is there recorded, he had the new view which he now introduces” (Daniel and the Revelation, p. 407. Emphasis supplied.). The fact that he comments on it at all suggests it is ambiguous.

It’s one of those texts that we have always felt was transitional; its primary purpose was to move the narrative along. We never used it for anything of much importance.

Therefore, I must ask, Why is the phrase “after this” used twice in the same text? It appears as the first two words, obviously, but it appears also in the last word, “hereafter.” These are from the same Greek root words—meta (3326) tauta (5023)—and are translated exactly alike in both the New American Standard and the New International versions of the Bible. Even the Amplified Bible translates the second and final instance of meta tauta as “in the future.” “After this” the prophet heard a voice, telling him what would be “in the future.”

Why is this significant?

Because if Uriah Smith’s interpretation is correct, there is no problem. We can go on believing that Laodicea will exist to see Christ return in glory.

But if he is wrong, and “these things” occur after Laodicea . . . it is very, very significant.

“I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer” (Revelation 6:2).

E. J. Waggoner tells us in The Everlasting Covenant (Glad Tidings Publishers, 8784 Valley View Drive, Berrien Springs, MI 49103) that many times God meant to bring His children home to heavenly Zion, and as many times that effort failed, with continued existence of His children on this sin-cursed earth. Let us see if we can support that thesis from inspired sources.

Eden “Had that long-lived people . . . devoted themselves to the service of God, they would have made their Creator’s name a praise in the earth and would have answered the purpose for which He gave them life. But they failed to do this” (PP 90).

Exodus. “Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of Thine inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which Thou hast made for Thee to dwell in, The sanctuary, O Lord, which Thy hands have established (Exodus 15:17. There is much more that supports this in The Everlasting Covenant.).

Repatriation from Babylon/Persia.  “The promise of blessing should have met fulfillment in large measure during the centuries following the return of the Israelites from the lands of their captivity. . . . ‘I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of Hosts the holy mountain.’ And of His people He said, ‘Behold . . . I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.” Zechariah 8:3, 7, 8. These promises were conditional on obedience” (PK 703-4. Here reference is to heavenly Zion and Jerusalem; notice references to truth and righteousness. You will find more on this theme in The Everlasting Covenant.).

Messiah.          “Jesus raised His hand,—that had so often blessed the sick and suffering,—and waving it toward the doomed city, in broken utterances of grief exclaimed: ‘If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace!—Here the Saviour paused, and left unsaid what might have been the condition of Jerusalem had she accepted the help that God desired to give her,—the gift of His beloved Son. If Jerusalem had known what it was her privilege to know, and had heeded the light which Heaven had sent her, she might have stood forth in the pride of prosperity, the queen of kingdoms, free in the strength of her God-given power. There would have been no armed soldiers standing at her gates, no Roman banners waving from her walls. The glorious destiny that might have blessed Jerusalem had she accepted her Redeemer rose up before the Son of God. He saw that she might through Him have been healed of her grievous malady, liberated from bondage, and established as the mighty metropolis of the earth. From her walls the dove of peace would have gone forth to all nations. She would have been the world’s diadem of glory” (DA 576-7).

Protestant Reformation “I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. . . . [I]f you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you” ( Revelation 3:1, 2).

Millerites/Adventists.             “If those who claimed to have a living experience in the things of God had done their appointed work as the Lord ordained, the whole world would have been warned ere this, and the Lord Jesus would have come in power and great glory” (RH 10/6/1896).

Seventh Era Out of the full body of believers emerges the remnant, who know how to live by faith.

Don’t mistake foreknowledge for God’s perfect will. He predicted a long 2300 days/years from Daniel’s time to cleansing of the sanctuary. “We are apt to look at what was, as though it was what ought to have been, forgetting that from first to last Israel refused, to a greater or less extent to walk in the counsel of God” (Waggoner, The Everlasting Covenant, 277).

Life was good, right up until October 22, 1844. The history of this country during those years was characterized by expansion. Riches lay practically on top of the ground. They found gold at Sutter’s Mill. Anyone could have a hundred and sixty acres for free. All they had to do was plant crops and live on the land. Opportunity lay everywhere the eye could see.

But October 22, 1844 came—and went. God moved on the hearts and minds of the people as never before. Would they respond appropriately? Would they let Him fill them with the practice of righteousness? Would they prepare for heaven?

Ellen White repeatedly admonished the people. Christ could have come ere this, she told them, in 1859, 1875, 1888. Thus the gospel went forward in the Sixth Era of the Lord’s favor. But the people didn’t understand.

Either the going forward of the gospel ends in heaven, or sword, famine and pestilence take over. Gradually a series of dramatic tragedies occurred. First a terrible civil war took place in this country in the early 1860s, followed by a run on the banks in 1893. When we turned the corner into the twentieth century the world was embroiled in two great world wars, and wars haven’t stopped since. The assault on our monetary system is manifested, among other things, in great famines that never go away. The twentieth century has seen the development of nuclear weapons. Pestilence? How about the earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes that never cease, nuclear weapons, and “men’s hearts failing them for fear” ((Luke 21:26). The storm clouds are gathering; the threatenings ‘quickening.’ Yet it is as if a Hand was held up against the storm, saying “Thus far and no farther” (Job 38:11).

Looking back after 1844 reveals a world overrun with crime and corruption, a world ripe for destruction.

Or ripe for one last call—the Seventh Era of the Lord’s favor?

Daniel 12

Daniel 12 breaks down into two major parts which divide at verse 5. Therefore, verses 1-4 concerns one subject–the Deliverance–and is about:

  • Michael’s standing up — Human probation closes.
  • An unprecedented time of trouble–From the time human probation closes to Deliverance.
  • At that time your people will be delivered–Deliverance.
  • Resurrection of both the wicked and the righteous–Special resurrection to occur at Deliverance.
  • Loud cry–When the teachers of righteousness will shine forth like Moses coming down from Mt. Sinai.

Daniel is told to seal the book. This information is for later, the very end of time.

However, Daniel isn’t satisfied. This doesn’t answer his main question, “How long?” which question his heavenly visitors now take up (verses 5 and 6). And the answer is in code. But it is the answer to Daniel’s main question: How long will it be until Jesus comes back for us? How long until the Second Coming of Christ?

Therefore, Daniel 12 contains all the pieces that play out at the very end of time. Only in the type does this return to play out in the Dark Ages. It defies logic to think that–in its primary application–this scripture veers off to take us back to a time that doesn’t end anywhere we want to go nor does it answer the question uppermost in the prophet’s mind. How long must we endure this order of things?

Therefore, Daniel 12 is about Deliverance followed by Second Coming.
