Michael Jackson Justice: Silence in Heaven to Half a Time

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

Silence in Heaven to Half a Time


Silence Under The Seventh Seal



"Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober."

This was the last Bible verse on the blog “Obamathe Devil…”

In a week’s time, I saw a message twice, referencing the Seventh Seal in Revelation.  So I went back and read that, even while my compiling and research for the other two blogs going up today was being done.

This information is timely because it fits.

As I said in the previous blog linked there above, “We are not going to know EVERYTHING.  But we are going to see the signs.  The reason Jesus tells us parables to “watch” and not “sleep” is because the signs will not be overt.  This was what disappointed me, as it did back in December of 2012 and January of 2013.  It’s not going to be cut and dry.  They do this in darkness but become bolder, believing that the masses are not paying attention and truthfully most of us are not.

If you believe the dreams God sends you, and you believe His Word, and you trust he connected you to another heart for a reason, then the markers of that timeline are still what they are, whether it is positioned with fanfare announcements or not; whether it is globally recognized as such.  Chances are, it will not be.  We see or we don’t.

Now let’s take a look at that Seventh Seal:

The opening of the seals begins in chapter six of Revelation.  We discussed this over a year ago, and the way I read this, I do not get the impression that this happens as a chronological event, but that some of the signs have been ongoing since the time of Christ, and possibly in cycles before then (The flood of Noah for example).  The opening of the seals reveals that these are the signs that have happened.

1st Seal – A white horse with he that rides him coming to conquer (mimic of the son of man on the white horse).

2nd Seal – Red horse who’s rider is given power to take peace from the earth and killing occurs.  (This has been happening).

3rd Seal – The black horse who’s rider holds balances in his hand, depicting the Babylonian money system.  That all should pay increasing prices for basic needs.

4th Seal – A pale horse who’s rider is called “Death” and Hades followed with him.  They kill with the sword, with hunger, with death (disease) and the beasts (already has been happening).

5th Seal – The souls under the alter of God cry out for justice.  God tells them to wait a little while, until the number of their brethren (martyrs, killed for the name of Christ) has been complete.

6th Seal – A great earthquake, the sun becomes black as sackcloth, moon as blood.  The stars of heaven fall to the earth and heaven departs as a scroll rolled together.  Every mountain and Island are moved out of their place.  The kings of the earth and great men/merchants of the earth hide themselves away in caves and rocks of the mountains (Denver Airport, underground cities etc…)

Verse 17, the last verse in chapter six, tells us that the great day of his wrath has come.  This is the end of the tribulation.  The elect are gathered before this time, according to Jesus in Matthew 24:21-23.

Who knows if this all happens simultaneously, spread out over a period of the Tribulation, or if this happens in conjunction with the seventh trumpet or seven bowls?

Interestingly, in Chapter sixteen of Revelation, the signs of the 6th seal describe almost exactly the plagues from the seventh vial or bowl, of a great earthquake, of mountains and Islands being moved out of their place and that great voice which says “It is done”, just as it is in the opening of the 6th seal in Revelation 6.

So let’s look at the seven trumpets and the seven vials.

Chapter 8 in Revelation begins with the silence in Heaven, then the seven angels standing before God, given seven trumpets.  This is they:

1st Trumpet – Hail and fire mingled with blood when the first angels sounds.  The third part of trees and all grass is burnt up.

2nd Trumpet – as like a great mountain burning, is cast into the sea.  A third part of the sea became blood.  A third part of the sea creatures die and a third of all ships are destroyed.

3rd Trumpet – a great star falls from heaven, burning like a lamp.  It falls upon the third part of rivers and fountains of waters.  The star’s name is “Wormwood”.  The third part of these waters become bitter and men die because the water is bitter.

4th Trumpet sounds – a third part of the sun, moon and stars are stricken.  The day shines not a third part, and the same for the night.  An angel cries woe to the inhabitants of the earth for the coming last three trumpet voices.

Chapter 9 continues the Trumpets

5th Trumpet sounds – A star falls from Heaven to the earth.  This angel has the key to the bottomless pit.  Out of the pit comes smoke, locusts like scorpions with fire coming from their mouths and tails.  Power was given to them, but they are told not to hurt any green thing except the men without the seal of God on their foreheads (chapt. 7, after the sixth seal is opened but before the 7th).  They are to torment men for five months (why five?  Get to that later) but not kill them.  They will wish they were dead but will not find death.

The king over these scorpions who have breastplates like horses and hair like a women’s hair is the angel of the bottomless pit (Satan, or Lucifer, the spirit of?  The false prophet).

6th Trumpet sounds The four angels bound at the river Euphrates are released to slay a third part of men.  Their horses number 200 thousand thousands.  These horses have heads like lions.  Fire and brimstone issues out of their mouths and they destroy the third part of men.  None repent.

Revelation Chapter ten discusses the seventh trumpet.

7th Trumpet Sounds – A mighty angel with a little book tells John to eat the book and not to write down the what the voices of the seven thunders uttered.  The angel gives John the little book to eat, that is sweet in his mouth but bitter in his belly.  Verse six, this angel swears by Him that liveth forever that there should be time no longer.

It is not until Chapter eleven that we find out the rest of this.  Revelation11:12-19 starts with the two witnesses, after being killed and laying dead for three and a half days in the city SPIRITUALLY called Sodom and Egypt “where also our Lord was crucified”.  These witnesses are brought back to life and called up by God.  All see and fear.

A mighty earthquake, a tenth part of the city fell and seven thousand men were killed in that city.  The REMNANT feared and gave glory to God.  Could this be the 144,000 in Revelation 7?

Then the 7th Trumpet Sounded (as above) -  Great voices in Heaven saying the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ.  The nations are angry and the time of the judgment of the dead have come.  The temple of God is opened and seen was the arc of his testament. 

There are thundering, lightnings, an earthquake and a great hail.

It is done.  We will get to all this another time.  Right now we are reconciling the three sevens.  As you can see, quite a few of them coincide with a number in the other set.  Below are the seven vials or bowls of the plagues.  These befall those who have the mark of the beast.

Chapter 16 of Revelation, the seven bowls/vials

1st bowl – there fell a noisome and grevious sore on those with the mark of the beast.

2nd bowl – the sea became as blood of a dead man and every living soul died in the sea.

3rd bowl – rivers and fountains of waters become blood.  Angels says this is “just” for those who spilled the blood of the saints, that they drink blood.

4th bowl – angel pours vial on the sun and men are scorched with great heat and they repent not.

5th bowl – 5th angel poured his vial on the seat of the beast (in the temple , the seat of the soul of men with the mark of the beast) and his kingdom was full of darkness.  They knaw their tongues for the pain.

6th bowl – Vial is poured out on the “great river, Euphrates”.  It dries up to make way for the Kings of the East.  Three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouths of the dragon, the beast and the false prophet.  Verse 15 tells us that he “comes as a thief in the night.  Blessed is he that watcheth and keep his garments”.  This seems to signify the closeness of the gathering up.  “he” gathers them in a place called Armaggedon, which means in Hebrew, according to Wikipedia, “gathering” or “a gathering place”.  Apocalypse and it’s meaning, we covered before.  This word is NOT in the Bible, or at least not in the King James Version.

"The Greek title of the book, apokalupsis, means “disclosure: appearing, coming, [en]lighten, manifestation, be revealed, revelation” and “a disclosure of truth, instruction, concerning divine things before unknown.” - Source, realtruth.org

The mystery of God should be finished.  In Hebrew, Armaggedon is said to mean "gathering" or "gathering place". 

Considering that the great day of judgement will consist of "the books were opened and another book was opened, which is the lamb's Book of Life . . ." Rev 20:12.  It is also told in Daniel 7:10 about the books being opened.

7th bowl – A great voice from Heaven says “It is done”.  Voices, thunders and lightnings.  A great earthquake such as was not since there were men on the earth.  The great city was divided into three parts.  The cities of the nations fell.  Great Babylon was remembered by God, to give to her the fierceness of his wrath.

Every island fled away and the mountains were not found.  A great hail fell out of heaven and men blasphemied God because of the plague of the hail, it was so great.

In Revelation 17, John is told by one of the great angels that had the seven vials, the judgment of the great whore, who she is, what she has done.  She is the mystery religion.  She is the mother of harlots (who played the harlot?  “Israel and her treacherous sister, Judah” – Jeremiah 3:6-8) and the abominations of the earth (mother of the corruption since the beginning, and the abominations overspread by the beast).

The angel explains to John the beast from the pit that was, is not yet is, the seven mountains and seven kings; five are fallen, one is, and one is not yet come which will continue a short pace.

The beast that was, is not yet is, is the eighth, and is yet of the seven.  The ten horns are ten kings that have not been given a kingdom but receive power with the beast for “one hour”.  We will go into this also, because now, we go back to the seventh seal.






There are several things that are rising to the surface in my mind, as if the scripture is running them through like a ticker-tape, and certain key words or phrases are being pulled out and set in boxes for me pull from other scripture later.

Of those small pieces of Biblical information is the numbers and time, reference to time and the ending of time.

Another is the silence in Heaven and the half an hour and another, is the new name of the son of man written on the hearts of the saved.

I did some researching on the half an hour in heaven.  Some of those that have written their thoughts on this, I agree with in part.  Others I do not at all.  But they still help trigger those keys and help me find verification yea or nay.  And of course there is prayer if it can be read either way in the scripture, and you want not to be swayed. 

God will answer if you truly want to understand.  But the answer may be delayed either because He knows the time, or because your mind is not clear, and I have experienced that feeling as well.  You know it.  If you get angry for a selfish reason, you feel the vacuum of His disapproval.

At times like that I strive to get my mind back to where I was when I prayed that prayer.  That cleansing of self and the offering to God of you, as a living sacrifice and I remember where I’m supposed to be heart and mind.  That Christ-like offering, as close as we are ever going to get is the desire to give that to God.

I cling to that, rather faultily, but I cling to it, because it is in itself, that living offering is cleansing.  It is healing and it is redeeming because I understand the heart of Christ at that moment and that makes us one with Him.

With that in my heart, mind and soul, I embark on the silence in Heaven.

One article I found was rather interesting.  I am understanding that this person views the seven seals being opened is followed by the seven trumpets and THEN the seven bowls of the plagues being poured out.

“**** YET, STARTING IN REVELATION CHAPTER 8, JOHN SEES FIRST HAND FROM HEAVEN A SERIES OF DIVINE PLAGUES THAT ARE THE “ULTIMATE IN BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.”

(3) FOR AS BAD AS THE FIRST SIX SEAL JUDGMENTS WERE IN REVELATION CHAPTER 6, THEY PALE IN SCOPE, INTENSITY AND IMPACT TO THE SEVENTH TRUMPET JUDGMENT THAT FOLLOW AND THE SEVEN BOWL JUDGMENTS THAT FOLLOW THE SEVEN TRUMPET JUDGMENTS.”

For some strange reason, the link to this commentary is no longer here and that’s a shame, because they had some good points.  Blogger responsible for this, my apologies.  Please forgive me.

They said something interesting below (their type is in all caps so that is the way I will quote it):

“* BELOVED, WHEN THE LAMB, THE LORD JESUS OPENS THE 7TH AND LAST SEAL ON THE LITTLE SCROLL THAT WAS THE TITLE DEED TO THE EARTH IN REVELATION 5:1.”

** WHEN CHRIST DOES THAT, THE JUDGMENTS OF THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL INTENSIFY AND EXPAND – GROW DRAMATICALLY.”

I don’t know where they get the “title deed to the earth” from Revelation 5:1, but it is interesting.  Revelation 5:1 tells us the lamb who is sitting on the throne is holding the “book that is written”, and on the back side it is sealed with seven seals.  The blogger then says this:

“*** FOR THIS FINAL SEAL CONTAINS WITHIN IT THE FULL SWEEP OF THE REMAINING JUDGMENTS FROM GOD OF THE TIME OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, THE LAST 3 ½ YEARS OF GOD’S WRATH BEING POURED OUT.

**** FOR OUT OF THE SEVENTH SEALS COMES THE SEVEN TRUMPET JUDGMENTS AND OUT OF THE 7TH TRUMPET JUDGMENT COMES THE 7 BOWL JUDGMENTS, WHICH YOU CAN SEE ON A CHART TAKEN FROM THE BIBLE KNOWLEDGE COMMENTARY.”

Ah!  I found it.  So all that you see in all caps, italicized and quoted comes from this link here: Bible Knowledge Commentary

I’m not going to go over every point because I have above all the signs and plagues from Revelation 8-16 listed.  My interest is in their view of the silence in Heaven.

Below, their view of the seals, trumpets and bowls is this:

(4) IN OTHER WORDS, FROM THE SEVENTH SEAL, THE SEVEN TRUMPETS ROLL OUT AND FROM THE SEVENTH TRUMPET ROLL OUT THE SEVEN BOWL JUDGMENTS.
* AND THOUGH SOME BELIEVE THE JUDGMENTS OF THE TRUMPET AND BOWL JUDGMENTS HAPPEN SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH THOSE OF THE SIXTH SEAL.

** IT APPEARS MORE LIKELY TO THEM AS TELESCOPING OUT OF EACH OTHER, ONE AFTER ANOTHER, SEQUENTIALLY, THAT THEY ARE SUCCESSIVE.

*** NOW THE REASON FOR THIS VIEW IS THERE IS NO DESCRIPTION OF JUDGMENT IN THE 7TH SEAL, BUT AN ANTICIPATION OF TERRIBLE JUDGMENT FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY IN THE TEXT BY THE 7 TRUMPET JUDGMENTS.

**** THEN, THE 7TH TRUMPET JUDGMENT DOES NOT IN ESSENCE DESCRIBE A JUDGMENT IN CHAPTER 11 VERSES 15-17, BUT RATHER CONTAINS THE ANTICIPATION OF HEAVENLY REJOICING OVER THE NEXT JUDGMENTS TO COME, THE BOWL JUDGMENTS WHICH WILL LEAD TO THE FINAL DESTRUCTION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF THE RULE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS HE COMES BACK TO THE EARTH IN REVELATION 19.


I do not necessarily subscribe to this, because as you can see in scripture, some of these signs repeat themselves or mirror a judgment from the previous set, such as the seventh trumpet and the seventh bowl/vial share the earthquake that moves mountains and a great hail that falls from Heaven.

However I do agree with their observations on the silence in Heaven.

** NOW THE PROGRESSIVE JUDGMENTS WITHIN THE 7TH SEAL WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE LAST 3 ½ YEARS OF THE TRIBULATION.
**** SO THE SEVENTH SEAL OPENS UP ALL THE JUDGMENTS THAT FOLLOW UNTIL THE RETURN OF CHRIST.

They go on to assert that there is really no time table for the seven trumpets and bowls other than the mention of the “power to hurt men five months” in Revelation 9:10.  That but that’s not the case either.

After the breaking of the seventh seal, there is silence in Heaven for about a half an hour.  This blogger classifies this as the “calm before the storm” and I agree.  But the “half-hour” intrigued me.  What did that mean?

Considering such emphasis is placed on the seventh seal, I thought that half hour may be very important.  Especially since it was a specific question posed to me by someone in email.

Everything about the end times and the “times and season” we see these signs, focuses on the seven year tribulation and the “half time” or second half of the tribulation.

Verification of this interpretation of the “half hour” is found in Revelation 17, where we learn that the beast that was, is not yet is, is also the “eighth, but also of the seven”.

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.  12. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.  13. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast."

They do discuss the silence:

*** NOW AS CHRIST BREAKS OPEN THE SEVENTH SEAL THERE IS SILENCE IN HEAVEN FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR.

**** AND THIS SILENCE IS SIGNIFICANT.
1.   IT IS SIGNIFICANT FOR THIS IS PROBABLY ONLY THE 2’D TIME IN THE HISTORY OF CREATION, SINCE GOD CREATED EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE ANGELS, THE CHERUBIM, THE SERAPHIM, THAT THERE IS SILENCE IN HEAVEN.

2.   AND THE ONLY OTHER TIME THAT I CAN THINK OF THAT THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED WOULD BE WHEN CHRIST WAS ON THE CROSS AND GOD HAD TO PULL THE WINDOW SHADES OF HEAVEN AS JESUS BECAME THE SIN OFFERING, THE LAMB WHO WOULD DIE AN HORRIFIC DEATH.
* AND THAT IS ONLY SPECULATION. I DON’T HAVE SCRIPTURE TO BE AUTHORITATIVE ON THAT, BUT CERTAINLY THAT IS A REASONABLE CONJECTURE.” – Source, Bible Knowledge Commentary

Let me help them out.  Biblical authority on this:  Matthew 27:45-54, Luke 23:44, and Mark 15:33

When you think about this, this three hours between noon and three pm, before Christ dies, the land is in darkness.  Christ is also dead for three days when he is resurrected.  It is described by another web site as the three hours that God regards Christ as “sin”.  And as God turns his face from “sin”, even creation mourns.  This is why Jesus cries out “why hast thou forsaken me?”

This is the first time in Christ’s physical life that he has felt the absence of the presence of God.  There is no other loneliness, hopelessness like it.  It is the absence of hope.  The absence of light.  The absence of life.

Not only is this significant in the silence in heaven for the second time mentioned in the Bible.  It is significant because God is going to step back and no longer withhold evil for the space of “half an hour”.  This is half of the tribulation and I believe this is the first half of the tribulation because in 2 Thessalonians 2, we are told that “he that withholdeth will do so until he is taken out of the way.  Then evil will be revealed.

Evil cannot reveal itself in the presence of God.  So the spirit of God in “God’s servant” would have to be gone before Satan could take over the “temple of his body”.

Between the first half and the second half of the tribulation, we watch this emerge in the absence of He that has the power to withhold.

We previously had talked about Michael Jackson being that vessel in which the presence of God will leave, and the spirit of Satan would fill that vessel, creating that abomination in the temple.  This would also fit the first half of the tribulation.  A sign that some would recognize and some would not.

(Don’t shut your eyes yet, I’m not done).

At the end of this web page, the person calls everyone to pray.  Now I do not agree with all interpretations, because as we’ve studied before, the angels are described several places in the Bible as “sons of God”.  In the new Testament, Paul tells us that Jesus gave us the power to be “sons of God”.

The Archangel Michael and Jesus cross paths between Heaven and earth.  Jesus is only named in Heaven, namely in Revelation in reference to what he did while he was in the flesh.  But Michael and Jesus have the same powers to rebuke Satan and defeat him.  Michael is the angel with the army and so is Jesus in the book of Revelation. We’ve proved this with Scripture on “Voice of the Archangel Speaks

I will continue on that thought in a minute.  Something struck me on this web page, toward the bottom:

**** MAY WE BE MEN AND WOMEN OF PRAYER.
1. PRAY IN YOUR QUIET TIMES.
2. PRAY AT ALL TIMES
3. PRAY WITH OTHERS – FLOCKS AND 9:15 A.M.
4. BUT PRAY DEARLY BELOVED!

“Flocks and 9:15 A.M.”?  There is verses in reference to the calling up and not “sleeping” that have to do with the morning.

"For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

"O house of David, thus saith the Lord; Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings."

The parable of the master and the watchmen.

"Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:"

Jesus is resurrected in the morning

'And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun."

"Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them."

Jesus is resurrected in the very early morning.  We are told to watch and not sleep, for the master may come in the morning.  David is told that judgment should be executed in the morning and in Psalms David tells us that “joy comes in the morning”.

Something else that sparked my brain:

Michael Jackson’s Clocks

9:15 or 10:20 – however you want to turn it.


And the verse in “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” lyrics (after “Heaven’s glad you came”) we see:

"Whispers At Morning
Our Love Is Dawning
Heaven's Glad You Came . . "

Another verse

"When Morning Awakes Me
Will You Come And Take Me
I'll Wait For You"

Another, very popular forum, someone also commented on the “Silence in Heaven” and it was this search result that prompted me to verify through scripture, and I agree with them.


"I'm going to be asking the question; what does John mean by the statement that "There was silence in heaven for half an hour"?
So, breaking it down...

What does he mean by "half an hour"?
There's a reference to "one hour" later in the book. It comes in ch 17 v12, which tells us that the ten kings "receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast".
If we see "one hour" in one part of Revelation, and "half an hour" in another part, it seems reasonable to suppose that the two are connected.

So I suggest that the phrase "half an hour" means "one portion of the reign of the Beast".

 What does he mean by "silence in heaven"?
There's an important clue in the way the silence gets broken, a few verses further down. There are "peals of thunder, voices, flashes of lightning" in v5, just as the seven trumpets are about to start work. We get the same thing at the time of the seventh trumpet(ch11 v19)- thunder and lightning and voices. God sends down trouble upon the earth, and this is accompanied by (and seems to be signalled by) what could be described as "noise in heaven".

If the presence of "noise in heaven" (i.e. thunder and lightning and voices) indicates a time when God is bringing trouble on the earth...
Then presumably "silence in heaven" (i.e. the absence of thunder and lightning and voices) is an oblique way of indicating a time when God is NOT bringing trouble on the earth.

Putting those two pieces of information together, I suggest that "There was silence in heaven for half an hour" can be interpreted as "The Beast rules for a certain period of time, and for the first half of that period God does not trouble it, does not try to destroy it."

Putting this into the context of the overall "storyline" of the book...
This period of relative tranquillity is sandwiched between two bouts of havoc and destruction.

The first part of the sandwich is the "4 Horseman" episode. That is brought to an end in ch7 vv1-3, when the angels are told to restrain the four destructive "winds of heaven", which have been blowing, metaphorically, all the way through ch6.
The description of the 7 trumpets and 7 bowls is the other side of the sandwich.

On this reading of the story, the Beast is prospering, and presumably rising to power, at a time when the world is taking a deep breath and trying to recover from the first bout of destruction.

If, then, there was a regime which was apparently pulling the world back together and reviving global society after the events of the 4 Horsemen, surely that regime would be welcomed at the time as "saviours of the world". They could get the enthusiastic support of most of the world without much need for compulsion.

During his commentary, he makes a good point above in mentioning the “saviors” and the false peace, which is brought in by the false prophet.

So we have the opening of the seven seals.  Some of these signs are things that have happened or have been happening in graduating severity, and some have not happened yet. 

At the opening of the seventh seal, there is silence in Heaven for a “half an hour”. That is half of the hour that the ten kings will rule with the beast, so we know this represents either the start of the Tribulation or the halfway mark.

Since God turns his face from the earth, this would understandably have to coincide with the “taking out of the way”, the one who withhold’s evil, and we know from Daniel that this is Michael, or Michael/Jesus.   This is knitted together in Daniel 12, Matthew 24, Mark 13, 2 Thessalonians 2, and Revelation 12 and 13.

We also know that some of the events in the Seven Seals are the same events that occur in the sounding of the Trumpets and the pouring out of the bowls of plagues.

The silence in Heaven preceeds the catastrophies to come and we know that at the sounding of the 7th Trumpet that the angels gather the elect in  1 Corinthians:

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

We are also told by Jesus that he comes at the end of the Tribulation (the sounding of the trumpet) and NOT to be deceived in Matthew 24:

"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

The days of the tribulation will be shortened for the elect according to Matthew 24:22.  But in Matthew 24:31, we are told that at the last trumpet, he (son of man) will send his angels to gather the elect.

However, the coming of the son of man also comes WITH the voice of an archangel and the trumpet in 1 Thessalonians 4:

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"

Biblically, we are nearing the end of the silence in Heaven.  Right before Michael left us, or was taken out of the way, he left us with this:


This is it, Here I stand
I’m the light of the world I feel grand . . .

This is it, I can say
I’m the light of the world run away . . .

This is it, I can feel
I’m the light of the world this is real
And your soul we can save
And I tell you please, let us pray

In the beginning, I prayed the prayer.  My answer?  A kiss on the cheek in the middle of the night, by something unseen.  A kiss that told me that God protected him.

And if I was moved to pray for the pain of that man, a man that most in my church believed was burning in hell – well, then who am I to argue God’s answer?

The quiet before the storm.  You have some time, but not a lot.  Remember the delusion.

  2. Hi Bonnie...

    Living computers? Now that's just downright scarey. It already runs ahead of me and seems to think it knows what I am thinking before I think it, and that's scarey enough without it coming to life.There are good things about it, and I really enjoy getting deeper into God's Word and discovering that when I seek Him with a diligent heart, He will be found...I LOVE that! No matter how old we get...we never stop learning, and I don't want to be afraid to learn or have the fear of the unknown, taint the joy of learning.I have found websites that I can trust with that desire to learn, like "Biblegateway". That is really a useful tool. And I DID find your website where I learned who Michael really was, and of his relationship with God...for that I am so grateful.To know how much He loved the Lord thrills my heart.Without the internet, I never would have discovered the real Michael.That is a very GOOD thing. But on the negative side,there are things about the internet that really frighten me, and things I do not trust, so I won't put my personal information out there. That's just me. My kids have no fear, and they enjoy facebook, but my husband and I are not comfortable with it. There are positive and negative things to watch for and it takes discretion on our part when we use it. It is also a wonderful avenue to proclaim the love of God to many who would otherwise never hear His message...just like you are doing:) It is also good to be able to communicate with you. For so long...since Michael passed, I felt alone on this Journey. I can't share Michael with my family. They just don't see what I see in him, and after awhile, that gets to be a lonely road to walk, and I know you understand that. However, A dear friend is very receptive to him now, and little by little she is seeing the Michael that I see. She told me the other day that her husband was watching one of Michael's performances on the Internet, and he called her over to sit with him and watch it. She couldn't believe it! When Michael was finished performing, her husband said that he was an amazing entertainer:) He is so right, and if her husband can see that, maybe mine will some day...maybe he will be able to see past the media hype and find the real man. Sometimes I wonder if he isn't intimidated by my appreciation for Michael.He has no need to be, because I would love nothing more than to be able to share my Love and appreciation for Michael with him. Who knows...it COULD happen...couldn't it?

    Have a blessed Easter Bonnie, as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!

    Love to you...

    1. Hi MLY,

      I too love learning. As young as I can remember, I always wanted to know not just what something was, but how it worked and where and how it fit into the process of everything around it. What happens when the unexpected happens and how do you get it back. I didn't talk much when I was a kid. I was too busy watching and listening, LOL! Now, I can't stop what I learned from coming out. That is another issue altogether . . . discipline. Something I used to have when I was a kid. Or maybe I mistook it for desire for input over output. (???)

      Anyhow, there are times when I need to keep my lips closed and wait/listen. I know it but when I see something that is wrong or doesn't fit, it's hard to leave it alone. I don't know better than God and he lets me know it too!

      Tonight my husband and I are going to have as light, quiet dinner (we've been running all week). I was doing my shopping today (when I shouldn't have. I should have been RESTING and keeping this day HOLY), and while I was waiting for my order of cold cuts, I just began singing (lightly to myself, humming) "You Loved me First" and I started to tear up, remembering the season of Christ's suffering. You forget where you are sometimes when these thoughts settle in your head, and one of the ladies whom I joke around with all the time when I'm in there, came around the counter to talk to me. I don't know her other than she works at the store, but after trying my best to make them smile back there when I come in and counter any hard time any customer gave them during their day, she just began making an extra effort to come around the counter and ask me how I'm doing.

      Well today was no different. She came around the counter again today and I had to quickly wipe the tears (pretending I was rubbing my eyes because of an itch, hahaha). I don't know how faithful a person she is, because we've never talked about that in depth, but she knows that I am just in conversation over the months. I will tell you that making someone forget the drudgery of their job or better yet, giving them a reason to LIKE their job, at least while you're there is very rewarding. What a blessing it is to have someone at a store know you care about them. She is such a sweet lady! That made my remembrance this weekend with Christ's gift to us that much more rewarding. . . . . cont.....

    2. Cont . . . .

      I have had so many people who know me in person tell me "You know, you would probably have people take your blog more seriously if you didn't 'obsess' about Michael . . ." or "If you would take Michael off of it". And this is family too . . . AND husband.

      I've been made to feel increasingly guilty for not putting the household first, or finances first or priority on OUR needs and at times I get to resent it.

      "You cannot serve God and mammon" runs through my head all the time. And the dreams I've had, like the one several months ago where my husband point blank told me "You drop the the blog or we're getting a divorce". This was a DREAM, not real life. But I have never dreamed about my husband giving me such an ultimatum. And in the dream, God came first and the blog was what He wanted me to do. I woke up feeling sick and wondering, "Am I really going to face this?".

      Even Peter denied Christ three times, AS his mentor was being beaten, to save his own skin. We are told that Christ will divide households and we are told that if we love our fathers or mothers, sons or daughters more than Christ, we are not worthy of him . . . because he DIED for us. We should be willing to do the same.

      I AM willing to do the same. But you SAY that believing that you will not be alone in your suffering for his name. What happens when FAMILY won't even stand by you in favor of worldly comfort? That is what I harbor in my heart sometimes. If it came down to it, God comes first. Both my husband and I made that promise AS part of our marriage vows. Why in the world would he believe that God would not test that promise?

      Splitting spiritual hairs on Michael and whether he is God or he had the spirit of God in him is not something most people can even entertain discussing. I did not get there because I was a fan. I got there because I read the Bible and THAT is where the scripture led me. I can'[t let people make me feel bad, weird, insignificant, delusional or WRONG about what God laid on my heart. Because God will TEST that also. I get so frustrated with myself on how easy it is for doubt to creep in.

      You have a blessed memorial too. I don't want to call it Easter anymore. The word Easter comes from the word Ishtar, which is the Goddess Madonna believes she is (at least during the Superbowl) that they turned into a holiday for Christ's sacrifice and I don't think it should be a holiday. It should be a solemn, but THANKFUL occasion. Joy in his ressurection, yes! But never forget or take lightly what he did for us. (I love you, ((((Jesus)))) ♥

      I Love you too, MLY! ♥

    3. You don't know how much I needed to hear that. Thank you for listening to the voice of God, and following His prompting.

      As far as leaving Michael off of your blog...My sweet friend... I need someone to share my heart with, concerning him. I know God will lead you to do what His Will is, but I hope I can still share with you what is in my heart:) Sometimes I feel like I will bust inside, because no one else understands, and I KNOW that you do:)

      Yes...I agree with you. Easter is more than chocolate bunnies and egg hunts...it is realizing the sacrifice Jesus gave for us...his precious body...broken for us, and his blood shed for the remission of our sin, and to realize that He died once and for all...to save all mankind. God raised him from the dead, and because He lives, we can face tomorrow, and THAT is reason to celebrate:)

      I love HIM with all my heart...and I love you, too:) I only wish I could be comfortable enough to contact you through email. I have had an experience with that, and so I am not at ease with it. If it is God's Will that we meet some day, I know it will happen:) Until then....

      God bless and keep you in His tender love and care,

      MLY...LYM

  3. Hi Bonnie!

    I just wanted to share this website with you that I seem to have stumbled upon just a couple of hours ago. I don't know if you've already come across this site, or if it's aided in your research, because it has a lot of similarities to what you have talked about in your blog through your study of scripture - the 7 years starting in 2009, post tribulation vs. pre-tribulation views, a little focus on the abomination of desolation, and the whole fallen angels posing as aliens deception...just to name a few.I also listened to a radio broadcast and this man has knowledge of the book of Enoch. I also found his thoughts about the two witnesses to be interesting, and there's a Youtube video linked in the text that describes what he's talking about regarding this topic. You'll find it a little less than halfway down the page.

    Anyway, I thought maybe if you haven't come across this website before it might help you in your research. Either way I'd love to hear what you think if you have time. I will say that I haven't had the opportunity to check out anything else on this blog other than the page I am sending you and the radio broadcast (I'm in the final stretch of my last semester of college and I probably should have been working on one of the many assignments I have pending, but I guess God had other plans for me!), so don't feel like you have to post this until your comfortable with the source and it's information. I just wanted to somehow share this with you. Thanks for reading and God bless!

    1. Hi E,

      I'm halfway through this blog and I can tell you in the first two paragraphs I already ABSOLUTELY do not agree with this guy.

      Pre-Trib rapture has already been disproven using scripture. He is also misappropriating Bible verses and misinterpreting them.

      Planet X, Nibiru and death stars are the staple script of the New Agers. I can tell you that in the very first paragraph, where he gives his email address ending in "777" pretty much did it for me. That is not a biblical number. It is a cover for the Hebrew "vav" letter in the alphabet representing the number "666".

      The "shortened days" for the elect mean that we will not SEE all of the plagues, because the last of them will happen after we are called up (sounding of the seventh trump, and the 6th bowl of plagues gives us a clue as to when during THAT period that the elect are gathered in Rev. 16:15 - "Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame."

      And we know that the saved are still on the earth at that time because the angel tells John exactly what Jesus told his disciples in Matthew 24 and Mark 13: (Behold I come as a thief in the night....."

      During this 6th bowl of plagues, in Rev. 16:2 that a "grievous sore" fell upon those men WITH THE MARK OF THE BEAST" during the pouring out of the first vial. So if only men with the mark of the beast suffer this plague, what OTHER men are still on there to differentiate?

      If this man is selling a "pre-trib", non-scriptural Rapture and uses the Kabbalah "777". I would close this link and disregard it.

      Thank you, E

    2. Ooooh! E, sorry I made an error. In Revelation 6:2 that is the FIRST bowl of plagues that is poured out, not the 6th. So we know by the wording of that, that the elect will still be here (those who have not already died in Christ).

      According to the wording in scripture, it is the seventh trump (verified in 1 Thessalonians and 1 Cor. 15:52) where we will all be gathered, and it is the 6th bowl in Rev. 16 that Jesus will "come as a thief in the night".

    3. E,

      I agree with him on the alien deception and the temple of the body.

      Delete
  4. Yes, the temple being the body! That was the other one! From what I read (starting at I. Great Tribulation Reference Points) he was advocating against the pre-trib rapture, and that’s where he brings up everything starting in 2009 (when Michael "passed away"). I understand that Planet X and Nibiru are a staple script of the new agers, but I was under the impression he didn’t actually believe that they were real aliens though that's what other people were claiming them to be, but that they were fallen angels/nephilim coming to deceive people as aliens. Not trying to defend him, just trying to explain why I even bothered to send this link to you. I also am aware of the Hebrew “vav” thanks to your blog, but I completely overlooked his email address. I was trying to find a link to a page that would talk a bit about who this man is, but couldn't find one. It was also really late and I was not in my sharpest state of mind. I’m sorry for sending you something that turned out to be a waste of your time, but thank you for helping me discern. I really appreciate it and could not have done it alone. It’s been hard to keep up lately, and at times I tend to turn to the internet for answers when I know I should just be reading scripture myself. I have to stop doing that! Thanks for clearing things up regarding those verses in Revelation as well. Safe to say I’ll be more careful!

    1. E,

      You did not waste my time. Actually this helped me as you will see on the next blog.

      This guy DOES seem to preach AGAINST the pre-trib, but when you read further down, you see that he tells us that his thinking had changed because of "this, this and this". Some of the Bible verses he posts in reference have nothing to do with the point he is trying to make for that verse.

      This paragraph, right under the heading "Foundational Scriptures to Consider", he explains what he believes Christ is telling us about "escaping" these things. We will not "escape" the Tribulation. We will "escape" the fate of those with the Mark of the Beast. This is what this guy says:

      "It was Jesus Himself that commanded us to pray to “escape these things”, yet so many ridicule this concept. The things that will unfold during the Great Tribulation are so utterly horrible, that anyone who thinks they are going to “hang out” in the mountains until Jesus returns is … well … as Jesus Himself puts it in Matthew 25, a “Foolish Virgin”. Let the Lord bear witness to you, and may you be led to spiritually prepare yourself for the wonder that awaits you in the Heavens by being found worthy. This is a far better plan than digging in a hoping to survive an onslaught of horror that will almost certain lead to a very bad situation for those that are “remaining on the earth”. -

      He also makes the assumption that the "things that are to take place" spoken of in Revelation will take place "in rapid fire succession". Some of these "signs" have been going on since the time of Christ as his victory over Satan beings the ending.

      Anytime someone has to go to a book of the Apocrypha to make a point that isn't backed up in Scripture, there's a problem. He references 2 Esdras 15 on the "horrible star" but it's not in there. That's the kind of stuff that concerns me.

      They twist things to advocate for a pre-tribulation Rapture and the reason they do this (aside from the fact that in some faiths they were falsely taught this), is because it sets the stage for Christ appearing BEFORE the tribulation starts and it is very clear in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that this will not happen, as per Jesus' own words.

      Jesus tells us that the man of SIN will be revealed first. So guess who becomes Christ to the Pre-trib crowd?

      That's right . . . Mr. Serpent.

      This is just one of the ways they are going to deceive people. A whole chunk of the Christian population will believe this . . . because they don't read their Bibles and let someone else interpret for them.

  5. Yes, I see what you mean after looking it over again. I re-read the full quote you mentioned in your response to me above in a different way and originally thought he was simply referring to how great it will be if we pray and are a part of those that are saved upon Jesus' return, but now I see he does seem to be advocating for a way to escape all of the tribulation. It is very dangerous to believe in this. Jesus is coming to save once and for all, so to think He also might come before the tribulation to help people escape only leaves more room for people to be deceived, and our God is not a God of confusion.

    So glad to hear this ended up actually helping you! Hopefully anyone who may read this will learn from my naivety and be more wary of the info that's out there on the internet, as well as rely on their own study of scripture. I know I'm technically still turning to the internet for your opinion/interpretation, but I knew you'd be someone who would be able to pick out things I would overlook on that site I found. In the past I haven't always agreed with how harsh you can be toward people you mention on the blog and on those who comment, and at times have been hesitant to post a comment myself when I had a question or concern, but I know, as you've stated, it must be difficult when people are constantly trying to distract and change the course of where you are taking the blog. You clearly aren't doing all of this just for fun or for your health lol! I sincerely feel that you are doing this out of love for God, a concern for others not to be deceived, and you're learning as well along the way.So thanks for taking the time to help me when I turned to you! It should always end with love.

    1. Hi E,

      You said "God is not a God of confusion" - AMEN to that! (But we sure are! LOL). Even though the gentleman writing that blog DOES have the whole "aliens/demon" deception right, and ALSO (as you pointed out) pegs these "signs" as starting in 2009 We are told that we will see tribulation. This tribulation is necessary. This is not only the process of separating the wheat from the tares, it is also (toward the end of it) the judgements (the bowls of plagues poured out). John's angel differentiates between those with the mark of the beast and those who have the seal of God. I believe what is written in our DNA has a large part to do with this, and also in Christ's DNA - because those who's names are written in the book of life will escape Judgment. This is all incredibly amazing when you think about this.

      You cannot lie to God. Cannot. Everything is written in your DNA.

      Yes, I have become harsh lately, and you are correct in the reasoning. It is hard not to let anger get in the way when packs of people come at you trying to confuse the focus of the comments on the blog. I have a hard time with people who don't care about other people (only their agendas) - but I shouldn't even have to worry about that.

      After all . . . we have scripture. God has already covered all of their angles :o)

      You are welcome. That is very sweet of you to say that. I'm sorry there has been such hostility here. Thank God he's already given us responses for all of it, in his Word. God bless you, E
