October 22, 2017: Friends, a new update is in progress, but I feel the Lord is holding me up for additional content that will help clarify our place on the timeline. For now, I continue to wait for His guidance.

This may be a good time to step back and put our focus on Jesus rather than listening to every new Rapture date theory that comes along.  Now that we have moved past the Feast days, the topic of Hanukkah is circulating again, a topic I wrote about in my book last year.  See page 125 for my discussion about that.

I believe the four-group harvest is about to begin, but this will be tied to prophetic events found primarily in the book of Revelation, not to number-crunching out of the Old Testament. No amount of calendar study is going to provide a day or hour for those who believe this end time harvest is all about one date on the calendar. 

Stay tuned!

October 1, 2017: Friends, before gentile believers can be caught up, the 144,000 virgin males from the 12 tribes must be caught up first, as they are the first fruits according to Revelation 14:4 / 12:5. Since this has yet to occur, we know it cannot be time for the Rapture of the Church!

Read the vineyard parable in Matthew 20 to understand what this is all about, and why Jesus said those paid last will have a bitter complaint against those who are paid first!

The four groups of harvest prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 20 (and numerous other passages) are shown below:

1) The Man-child / 144,000 (Rapture Group 1 / Rev 12:5 / 14:4)
2) The gentile Church (Rapture Group 2 / Psl 45:10-14)
3) The dead in Christ (Group 3 / 1 Thes 4:16)
4) Those alive at the last trump (Final Rapture / Group 4 / 1 Thes 4:17)

Let's read a passage from Revelation that may help clarify the identity of the man-child:

"And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel."
(Rev. 7:4)

The word for "children" here is the Greek huios (G5207), meaning a firstborn male, but John amplifies that meaning further when he uses the term "man-child" in Revelation 12:5:

"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations..."

This is such an obvious gender-specific reference that we can't mistake it for anything else. The Church on the other hand is always depicted in scripture using the feminine gender, as when Paul refers to the Church as a "chaste virgin" (2 Cor 11:2) prepared as a bride for her husband.

If we mix these scriptural metaphors to mean whatever we want them to mean, we are adding to or subtracting from the words of Revelation, and that is not something we should be doing (Rev 22:18,19).

We have yet another proof that the 144,000 are males from the 12 tribes of Israel:

"These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins." (Rev 14:4)

I fail to see how a female believer's virginity has anything to do with her being defiled by women (plural) despite claims by some that this passage refers to all sorts of other things in an attempt to deny the plain meaning of the text.

As for the Hebrew nature of the man-child, John says the 144,000 are from the twelve tribes of Israel, so I disagree that we need to see the word "Jew" in this passage. In modern vernacular, the word "jew" simply means anyone descended from the house of Jabob, regardless of which tribe they are from.

Some appear to believe the 144,000 are gentile believers.  If that is true, why would they be separated from the rest of the Church? Is the Church made up of only 144,000 people?

I believe there are those who feel such a strong desire to be a part of the 144,000 that they embrace false doctrine on this topic and seek to change their individually appointed times.
  I believe we should seek Jesus in such matters and be mindful that our divine appointments are up to him.

Earlier we reviewed the events of the 7th Seal as a key indicator that we have reached the start of early Rapture and the removal of the man-child of Revelation, whom John refers to as the first fruits of harvest.

While the catching up of the 144,000 may not be over in one 24-hour day, I expect the first trumpet to signal their exodus and to begin the 4-part harvest prophesied by Jesus.

[Note: You can read about the divided harvest in my article on that topic linked from the main page of this website.]

Last week, I called your attention to the Katla Volcano in Iceland, which seems primed for an eruption that may fulfill the first trumpet this Fall. Today, however, I learned that the Manaro Voui volcano on the island of Vanuatu in the Pacific ocean is also preparing to erupt as 10,000 people begin a full scale evacuation before the end of the week!

Volcano images.png

It may be that several volcanos will erupt at once, and that other fire-related events may converge in such a way that the first trumpet is impossible to miss! Please see the last few updates to get caught up on everything pertaining to the start of the early harvest!

If you have not requested a hard copy of my book, please do so, or order from the order page by using the "Prophecy Alert" icon from the main page.  In the days ahead, this little book could provide the only real-world understanding of end time events that your Pastor, family, and friends have access to.

At the grocery store last week, I saw a full color display of the man identified on the Clock of the Four Night Watches as the future Antichrist.  He appears on the cover of People Magazine (image below), which points to his role as the future King of the United Kingdom. 

Notice the wording on the cover and remember that no other individual in the world, by reason of his time of birth, has this connection to Revelation 13:11 where it fell on the Clock on Rosh Hashanah in 2014!

Just ten weeks after his placement on the Clock using the divine structure of the Bible, he met with President Obama (unannounced) in the Oval office. On that day and no other day in almost 8 years of ministry, the number of views on my YouTube channel reached 666!

The role of Prince William Arthur as the Second Beast of Revelation, the man who promotes the fallen Obama and calls for the construction of his image in the days to come, is fully documented in Chapter 6 of my book!

People Mag PW cover.PNGBook Promo cropped.png

Some believe Prince William is not a credible candidate for the Antichrist.  My book explains why he is the only world figure whose biographical data satisfies every condition in scripture for the world's last King and tyrant. Remember that looks can be very deceiving.

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal


September 28, 2017: Friends, yesterday I received word from the Lord that we are in the birth process of the man-child, who is yet to be caught up.  The sign to me was repeated four times in just half an hour and the result was a placement at Revelation 12:2, exactly the verse that prophesies this event.

I would take this as a heads up that the 7th Seal may open before September ends, however our late January / early February Watch dates (see previous update) remain in effect. The great fire out of heaven and the meteor striking off the coast of Italy could take place at any time

The meteor destroying Europe will change life for everyone due to the collapse of the financial markets worldwide and the seizing up of global banking. I believe this is the event Jesus was referring to when he said, "For as a snare it shall come upon all them who dwell on the face of the earth." (Luke 12:35) 

Remember, this event might also end our access to the Internet, so remain in prayer and wait on the Lord!

Peter John Brandal

September 23, 2017:
today is the day that many gentile believers waiting for early Rapture will realize their favorite prophecy teachers do not understand the scriptures.  As I have tried to share with them, Revelation 12:5 is not about the Church, it is only about the catching up of 144,000 virgin male Jews (Rev 14:4), who are the first fruits, or group one, of this end time harvest!

Whether the removal of the man-child will be a one-day event or take place over a longer period of time we don't know, but what we do know is that the four-part harvest prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 20 will take up to 42 months as described by John in the book of Revelation.

We are now watching for the opening of the 7th Seal because that is the context in which God calls "his people out from among her" (Rev 18:4-8) during the destruction of modern Babylon, when the great burning mountain (Rev 8:7,8) strikes the sea near Italy and incinerates the figure-head city of global commerce, which is Rome, and by extension the EU and virtually all of Europe!

These events may well begin before the end of 2017, however I have issued a Watch period of January 20 through February 5, 2018 based on mathematical convergences that extend past the end date on the Clock as discussed in recent updates.

Let me repeat that no sign, however remarkable, represents fulfillment.  We can't know when something will happen based on the timing of a wonder in heaven.  Also, no prophecy of the Bible is confined to one 24-hour day, so even if the early harvest begins today, it won't be the final day of this end time harvest!  

Please note that I have further annotated the 4 groups of harvest chart, so if you have downloaded it, please download and print again for future reference.

I may add further commentary here a little later, so stay tuned!

Peter John Brandal

September 17, 2017: Friends, there was no culminating event of the 6th Seal this week as discussed in my brief video, so I have no way of knowing whether we have entered the half hour of silence or if this gap in time is still in front of us. Both January 20, 2018 and February 5, 2018 remain critical Watch dates, however we should be prepared for the opening of the 7th Seal and the start of early harvest as early as this Feast of Trumpets!

A stellar alignment pointing to Revelation 12:5 and the catching up of the 144,000 virgin male Jews referred to as the man-child in the book of Revelation will take place on September 23, 2017. Our proximity to this date means the start of the four-group harvest could begin later this month, or it may be tied to early February in 2018. As I have pointed out many times, no sign, however remarkable, represents fulfillment.

Please see the website for my article on the four-part harvest, which has now been updated with new information.

God bless as you continue to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches...

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal 

September 12, 2017:  Friends, this interim update is a quick heads up that Thursday of this week (09.14.17) could be the start of the "half hour of silence in heaven" (Rev 8:1) before the opening of the 7th Seal.  If that is the case, it means that tomorrow, September 13, could bring a key event of the 6th Seal before this period of 144 days begins. I hope to release a short video tomorrow discussing this and how the Clock measurement points to it.  Keep Watching and God bles

September 2, 2017:
  Friends, in late 2016, copies of my book were sent to every prominent pastor and evangelist in America, including Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries. Pastor Biltz was first to discover that four blood moons would fall on key Feast days of the Hebrew calendar in 2014 and 2015. This is also one of the most important monographs in my book, showing a divine link between Passover in 2014 where the blood moon converged with Revelation 12:1 and Psalm 78:13 at exactly the same hour on the Clock as it occurred in real time!

[Note:  See mathematical links validating the divine structure of the Bible in
my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, and a full discussion of end time events.]

Several days ago, when listening to a July sermon by Pastor Biltz (see link below), I was amazed to find that he is teaching a central theme of my book concerning the divided harvest and why there is a delay for the foolish virgins who become separated from the rest.

While the modern church believes the virgin parable in Matthew 25 is a portrayal of the wheat and the tares, I show from scripture why this separation instead points to a four-part harvest and an order of redemption supported by the words of Jesus in Luke 12:36:

"Be ye as men who watch for their Lord when he shall return FROM the wedding!" (Luke 12:36)

Video Link (listen in particular to timestamp 13:00 - 13:50) 

I am not aware of Pastor Biltz sharing the divided harvest doctrine until after receiving a copy of my book, but to be clear he has not contacted me about this. I would like for him to have mentioned my book during his sermon, but I am delighted to know he is sharing this Biblical truth with others before we reach the start of the four-part harvest prophesied by Jesus!

You may recall that September 2, 2016 was the end date on the Clock of the Four Night Watches. We entered the black ring portion of the Clock one year ago today. I have continued to search for the end of a two-hour delay equal to 521 days, a period of 17 months and eleven days, or the length of one Watch on the Clock.

While I was never told what event this delay was meant to bring us to, I now believe it points to the opening of the 7th Seal and the start of early Rapture, which is tied to the stellar alignment we refer to as the Revelation 12 sign occuring this month.

A two-hour wait from the end date on the Clock exactly one year ago today may give us the final calculation of this end time message before the arrival of Critical Mass on the Clock, and with it the catching up of the first Rapture group in Revelation 12!

Here is the math:

September 2, 2016 + 521 days = February 5, 2018

Let me point out that this date in 2018 is just 16 days after the end of 42 months counting from Revelation 13:3 prophesying a near-fatal head wound to the First Beast, which fell on the Clock in August of 2014. I continue to believe this two-hour delay has been pointing equally to that event, since a deadly wound to Barack Obama is tied to Critical Mass on the Clock.

Both January 20, 2018 and February 5, 2018 are now key Watch dates for us on the Clock in the days ahead!

The first trumpet of the 7th Seal is the trigger event for our entry into Revelation 13, but what exactly is it? 

John describes it as follows:

"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." (Rev. 8:7)

Let's now add the second trumpet:

"And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood..." (Rev. 8:8)

I believe these two trumpets may be part of the same event. A meteor large enough to reach the planet's surface creates enormous pressure beneath it, which is why a blast zone forms before it can make physical contact. Trumpet one may simply be part of this effect as the meteor strikes the ocean. On the other hand, it may be a volcanic eruption producing "blood" in the form of lava, which John sees as fire and hail falling back to the Earth.

Now we have news of the Katla Volcano in Iceland reaching a point of critical mass based on a seldom violated 99 year period of containment that runs out in November!  [Click the image below for more information.]

Katla Volcano Iceland.png

A looming strike against North Korea may also bring fulfillment of the earlier trumpet as a rain of fire is an apt description of modern warfare involving missiles and other types of guided artillery. In either event, I expect Kim Jong Un's assassination and Obama's near-fatal head wound to take place at virtually the same time. 

The Clock end date at Revelation 19:15 one year ago today marked the Lord's judgment upon those who come against Israel at Armageddon, which I now believe to be the war of Psalm 83. The edict of a 70 nation consortium denying Israel its capital city just weeks after the Clock ended was a signal to the Arab world that Israel is largely without support in the global community. This will soon trigger Pakistan's Erdogan and his Arab neighbors to move against the Jewish state as the 7th Seal opens.

It may be that President Trump becomes compromised in some way that allows those aligned against Israel to make their move. Or, cover may be found during extreme levels of social unrest following a near-fatal attempt on Barack Obama as prophesied in Revelation 13:3. The effects of a meteor strike off the coast of Italy destroying Europe would by itself be sufficient distraction for the enemies of Israel to unleash their unholy war against her.

Since we may lose Internet access during any one of these events, I cannot be sure when I may have written my last update, so please check back and remain in prayer, as we are running out of time!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal

August 20, 2017: Friends, we reviewed the seven Feast Days of the Lord in the previous update and saw that, in order for all those awaiting redemption to be harvested, the four groups referred to by Jesus in Matthew 20 have to be taken in a very specific order. The great beauty of this is that it gives us an early warning before the Rapture of the Church even begins. I don't think we can possibly miss all of these events, especially in combination.

The catching up of the 144,000, the meteor strike that destroys Rome (and Europe), the head wound that disables Barack Obama and triggers the rise of the Antichrist out of Europe, and the Psalm 83 war. No wonder Jesus said that when we see all these things, we would know he is even at the door!

4-group chart.png
Click the above chart to download, store and print!

The chart above illustrates the four groups of harvest using key passages from the Bible in support of this teaching. You will find other Rapture related verses discussed in Chapter 5 of my book. It is quite amazing to see all four groups listed in Revelation 6:6.  In his parable of the vineyard (Matthew 20) Jesus also refers to exactly four groups of harvest.

While the one-day-Rapture-for-all is a popular teaching of the modern church, we can see that a four-part harvest is the true teaching of the Bible. I hope you will take time to research these passages for yourself. 

I was hoping to address the topic of Rapture date setting once all the dates now floating around had come and gone, but there is a new Rapture date coming out every other day. What is the test of those who believe they can calculate or figure out the date of the Rapture?  With a divided harvest, the answer is pretty simple. Since Rapture is not a one day event according to scripture, there is no date to figure out.

And isn't that the most obvious reason why Jesus said, "For at a time you think not, the Son of Man cometh?!"

We can bake this cake any way we want, adding a dash of Jubilee, a pinch of Weeks, a few sticks of Hebrew, 2 cups of Yom Teruah, but the result is always the same. It's the cake that disappears, not us! 

But fear not, little flock, it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the good things of his Kingdom.  And his harvest, which is about to begin, promises to be quite a ride for those prepared and watching!

I assure you that the key to our redemption falls into the category of why and not when. The when will take care of itself, but it is the why we are going to be searching out in the days ahead. While grace gets us into heaven, it doesn't determine which part of the harvest we fall into, nor will everyone fall into the harvest group they might have preferred.

This is what Jesus was talking about in Matthew 20, when the workers in the field brought their complaint to the master of the vineyard:

"And... they murmured against the goodman of the house, saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen." (Matthew 20:1-16)

This is a very ingenious allegory carefully constructed by our Lord Jesus. I discuss it in detail in Chapter 5 of my book on Rapture timing, and explore why Jesus said these particular words. Did he pull the number four out of a hat?  While no amount of study will give us the day or hour, understanding the four-part harvest will help us see why it is unfolding in a manner that few are expecting.

While a focus on dates may be entertaining, it is a distraction of the enemy to prevent us from asking far more important questions:

Why are the virgins separated? (Matt 25:10)

Why are "many called, but few chosen?" (Matt 20:16)

Why are we to be as men who wait for their lord when he shall return from the wedding? (Luke 12:36)

It is concerning that Steve Fletcher has now deleted his YouTube channel and his videos without any advance notice to his viewers, as far as I know. I encourage you to pray for Steve, who I believe to be a Christian, though misguided.

My issue with prediction theology is that it gives a false sense of security in those who believe they can know the date of the Rapture and assume this means they are properly watching. The truth is that prediction is not what the Father is looking for in a chaste virgin for his Son.

Obedience, not foreknowledge, is the oil in the lamps of the wise virgins,
which is why Jesus chastens those who fail to hear what the Spirit is saying to them. It is not enough to talk about Jesus, we have to elevate his words above our own. 

Obedience requires us to seek God's will in all we do, to remain free of false doctrine, sexual impurity, bring an end to worldly entanglements, to pray without ceasing, and avoid willful sin. This is what separates the wise from the foolish at the door into the Marriage when the trumpets of harvest begin to blow!

At the same time, those who don't measure up will be saved if they remain faithful in the hour of trial ahead and endure until the end, just as Jesus said.

I know that many are wondering if the solar eclipse this week has special prophetic significance. I believe that it does, however I don't expect anything to happen the day it occurs because signs are a harbinger and don't represent fulfillment. In the days and weeks to come, however, I expect us to reach Critical Mass on the Clock and to see the opening of the 7th Seal!

We will know the 7th Seal has opened when we see a great rain of fire and hail followed by a "great mountain burning" (Rev 8:8) that strikes off the coast of Italy and destroys Rome, including the Vatican and most of Europe. [See my earlier updates about this event.]

In a recent video, I explained how I was led to use SOTA meteor impact modeling software at Liverpool University in London to discover the size of the object required to create the destruction John sees in his vision. We can expect a meteor of between 5 and 7 miles wide and a blast zone of at least 1,500 miles in diameter. The map I presented in the earlier update depicted a blast zone radius ending with Paris, but I now believe it will go slightly further and reach the city of Brussels, the capital of the EU, in a lethal blow to the bureaucratic center of modern Babylon.  [Note: the earlier map has now been updated.]

This calamity will create several days of absolute darkness over much of the eastern hemisphere as debris ejected from the meteor impact site enters the atmosphere. We can also expect a massive power outage as a result of damage to the European power grid for thousands of miles in all directions. It is difficult to know how far these effects will spread, but without a doubt the remaining trumpets in Revelation describe the fallout of this catastrophic event and its impact on the rest of humanity.

It is easy to see how the chaos resulting from this devastation will bring about the rise of the Antichrist, the war of Psalm 83, and a near-fatal head wound to the First Beast, who is Barack Obama. These are the same events that will signal the start of early Rapture, beginning with the 144,000 who are the man-child caught up in Revelation 12:5.

As of this month, we moved past two key anniversaries on the Clock of the Four Night Watches. The first was the arrival of Revelation 6:1 and the opening of the first Seal on August 8, 2012, the same day as the world's largest recorded storm in weather history, documented on pages 19, 26, and 31 of my book. This physical manifestation of a spiritual event brought the mysterious deaths of numerous international banking figures the same year, and persecutions of Christians by both ISIS and the secular media on a scale never before seen.

The second milestone was the arrival of Revelation 13:3 on August 10, 2014, prophesying a near-fatal head wound to Barack Obama that has yet to occur. We will reach the end of 42 months relative to this passage on January 20, 2018, which may itself become the day that it happens, but as always, dates discussed in these messages are not dates of predicted fulfillment, they are dates to Watch!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

July 28, 2017:  Friends, it is time to look at the Feast days of the Lord and try to separate out the leaven of the modern church in our study of the end times. I believe the discussion that follows will help you understand why the divine sequence of events may not be as many are expecting.

Let's begin with a brief run down on each of the seven Feasts of the Lord observed by the early Hebrews and even modern orthodox Jews living today. These appointed times are referred to in the Hebrew as a Moedim (pronounced Mo-ah-deem).

1) Passover (Leviticus 23:5) – A moedim revealing Messiah as our Passover lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7) whose blood was shed for the sins of mankind. Jesus was crucified on the day of preparation for the Passover at the same hour as the unblemished lambs were sacrificed (John 19:14).

2) Feast of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6) – A moedim observing the Lord's sinless life, due to the fact that leaven represents sin in the Bible. Jesus' body was in the tomb during the first three days of this feast.

3) First Fruits (Leviticus 23:10) – A moedim pointing to the Lord's resurrection on the same day. Paul refers to Jesus in 1 Corinthians 15:20 as the "firstfruits of them that slept," meaning his resurrection would be the first of many.

4) Feast of Weeks (Pentecost / Leviticus 23:16) – A moedim fulfilled in part when the Church was born on the fifthieth day after the Lord was resurrected. This brings us to the mystery of the ingathering of barley, as well as wheat, grapes, and olives. When completed, both Jews and Gentiles will have been gathered into the combined branches of Judah and Israel.

5) Feast of Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24) – A moedim observing the first of the Fall feasts. It is marked by the blowing of 100 trumpets and points to the divided harvest Jesus prophesied in all of his Rapture parables.

[Note: The vineyard parable in particular describes 4 groups who receive their reward not in the order they expected and ends with a reminder that "many who are first shall be last, and many last shall be first." (Matt 20:16)]

6) Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27) – A moedim for the salvation of national Israel, when the Jewish remnant "look upon Him whom they have pierced" and receive Him as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10 / Romans 11:1-6, 25-36).

7) Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot / Leviticus 23:34) – A final moedim for the return of Messiah and his re-entry into Jerusalem on this day at the start of his 1,000 year reign on Earth. (Micah 4:1-7).

We have already seen the fulfillment of the first three Feast days and a major part of the fourth. I want to focus mainly on the fourth Feast because it is currently underway and will not come to an end until all the remaining Feasts have also been fulfilled!

The Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost, is familiar to most Christians.  It began on the fiftieth day after the Lord's resurrection, when those gathered in the upper room in Jerusalem experienced the Lord's baptism of fire and the Church was born. We know this because the Apostle Paul said the following in his letter to the Galatians:

"My little children, of whom I travail in birth AGAIN until Christ be formed in you..." (Gal 4:19) meaning Paul had himself already been born, yet he travailed as if in labor a second time for those not yet matured in Christ. Jesus taught that no one can enter the Kingdom of God without having first been born of his Spirit. As believers, we have fellowship with him from the Church temples that our bodies represent, so we know our rebirth through faith in Christ represents the birth of the Church!

Whenever someone comes to faith in Christ, they enter the Kingdom of God through a second birth and the Church grows larger.

John wrote, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world..." (1 John 5:4), and Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against his Church, so we can be sure that the Church is not awaiting a third birth event.  We can only be born twice!

I know that Scott Clarke is teaching a future birth for the Church based on his misread of Revelation Chapter 12.  Let's take a look at what the Bible really says is happening in this Revelation passage.

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars" (Rev 12:1).

Looking at the plain text as it is written, John says the woman wears a crown of twelve stars on her head, which we should easily recognize to be a reference to the twelve tribes of Israel.

In Revelation 14:4, John refers to a group of virgin males out of the twelve tribes of Israel, saying they are first to be harvested.  We find this same group of 144,000 ethnic Jews in Revelation Chapter 7, when they are sealed by God before John sees them in heaven.

If these virgin males from the twelve tribes of Israel are the first fruits of the harvest representing the barley, then the man-child caught up to heaven in Revelation 12 can be no one other than these same virgin males! Therefore, a catching up of gentile believers representing a harvest of wheat (regardless of gender) has to take place in a later Rapture!

144k slide.JPG

In scripture, we see a consistency in the use of terms so that prophesied events will never be in conflict. Ignoring how such terms are used can lead to incorrect doctrine.  To illustrate this, let's read another passage from the Apostle Paul:

"I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ" (2 Corinthians 11:2).  Here Paul cleary depicts the church as female. On the other hand, John refers to a first fruits harvest of all male Jewish virgins as being the "man-child," a clear and obvious distinction.

As you can see, Revelation 12 is not about the Rapture of the Church at all, but a catching up of the 144,000 who are the First Fruits (Rev 14:4) of the harvest!

This is important because it gives us a correct view of the timeline in terms of what has to happen before the Rapture of the gentile Church that most of us are waiting for.  What we should be watching for now is the opening of the 7th Seal and the convergence of that event with the removal of the 144,000 in fulfillment of this passage, since the Rapture of the "virgins who follow" the King's daughter into the Marriage (Psalms 45:14) takes place only after that time.

Now let's look at one scripture that briefly describes the Feast of Trumpets.

"Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation."
(Lev 23:24)


We can be sure that this convocation is the gathering Jesus refers to in Matthew 24:31 when the angels bring all the saints together from one end of heaven to the other. We should not assume, however, that this is all accomplished in one 24-hour period of time, or that these events will necessarily begin on the same day as a stellar alignment taking place in the Fall of 2017. 

[Note: A sign in heaven pointing to the events in Revelation 12 also cannot be ignored, as this could mark the beginning of our entry into Revelation Chapter 13, meaning Critical Mass on the Clock, as early as this Summer or Fall!]

What else do we know about the Feast of Weeks? 

Jewish tradition says this is a high court observance for the purpose of establishing the identities of the righteous and those whose names are found in the Book of Life. In his mercy, God will delay the court date of those not fully prepared, allowing them time to do so. This is no doubt why an angel will be preaching the Gospel message (Rev 14:6) during the events of the 7th Seal. And it may be why a Rapture warning is inserted into the text where the battle of Armageddon (Rev 16:15) first appears, which is part of a Critical Mass prophecy matrix discussed in earlier updates. 

Yom Kippur is the second court date when the final trumpet (for this particular Feast) is blown. This is all about the divided harvest Jesus taught in his carefully crafted allegory of four groups paid out of order in the parable of the vineyard!

The travail of the woman in Revelation 12 points to the spiritual birth of Israel and the removal of her blindness when Messiah is revealed to the Jews, as the Apostle Paul also prophesies in Romans 11. Again, this cannot be a reference to the gentile Church, which was born 2000 years ago, and is the reason why Israel remains in the womb spiritually until we reach the fulfillment of this Feast!

The harpazo in Revelation 12:5 will bring Revelation 14:4 to pass when the 144,000 (not the church) are caught up as the First Fruits of the harvest, exactly as stated in that passage. This early harvest is the first group in the parable of the vineyard in Matthew 20, and was prefigured by the catching up of Enoch in Genesis 5:21-24.

The wheat portion of the harvest is the Church of Philadelphia and was prefigured by the catching up of Elijah (2 Kings 2:11), and is the second group in the vineyard parable. This one is not a birth, but rather a separation. That is why Elisha remained behind, but it is also why his death triggered a resurrection -- a prefigure pointing to the third group in the vineyard parable.

While Enoch represents the first fruits harvest of modern ethnic Israel (Rev 12:5 / 14:4), and Elijah prefigures the catching up of the gentile Church in a second Rapture, Elisha represents the last two groups in the parable -- meaning those who become martyrs for Christ and those who are "alive and remain" to be caught up in a final Rapture at the end!

What about the remaining feasts and their fulfillment?

I believe the Day of Atonement will bring the completion of Israel's salvation (in whatever year it occurs), and that it will extend beyond the 144,000, who I believe to be the army of Christ sent to subdue the nations.

The Lord's physical return, as every self respecting Jew knows, must fulfill the final feast, which is Tabernacles, not the Feast of Trumpets. In whatever year Jesus returns, he must return during the week of Sukkot.

See Chapter 7 of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, for a discussion of why I believe the final Feast may occur as early as the Fall of 2018 or as late as the Fall of 2020.

The 100 trumpet blasts during the Feast of Trumpets, I believe, will signal our entry into the Marriage, but the companion virgins must follow after the King's daughter (Psl 45:14) into the wedding, not before. There is a first fruits harvest of Jews (Rev 14:4) before the gentile church can be taken, meaning the door into the Marriage opens at different times depending on which group we are in. 

Some are already getting upset at the thought that they may have to depart in an order not to their liking, exactly as Jesus said in Matthew 20:11,12. 

Title Slide 2.png

Will everyone caught up in the first two groups be taken during the 10 days of awe between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur? Or, might the second Rapture group be taken over a much longer period of time, perhaps lasting until the Feast of Trumpets in the following year?  Either scenario is a possibility, we just have to wait and see.

I continue to believe the stellar alignment in September of 2017 is a sign to us that these events are imminent, however no sign, however remarkable, represents fulfillment. If the early Rapture should begin on a day in August or September of this year, it won't be the final day of this end time harvest! 

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal

July 20, 2017:  Friends, this is a brief note to let you know I am aware of the July 11, 12, 17, 23, 25, 26, 27, August 1, 2, and various other Rapture date guesses being made on YouTube.  Since no one can calculate the date of the Rapture, I saw no reason to issue an alert about this to my readers. Of course, no one can exclude a date on the calendar as being potentialy where the early Rapture could begin, either.  [See new underlined paragraph at end of this message]

As I explain in my book, a one-day Rapture for all believers is a false teaching of the modern church. If we were willing to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches, we would hear what Jesus had to say on this topic and know it will not be confined to one 24-hour day.

In the parable of the vineyard, there are four groups who receive their pay out of order, some first and some last. The same words are repeated in the wedding parable in Matthew 22. Why? Because Jesus is referring to the Rapture!  See Chapter 5 of my book for more information.

My current video on YouTube explains why we are waiting for three critical end time events before Rapture can begin, and I hope you will share this video message with others.

I will be writing an update about the remaining feasts and what events are tied to them.  In the same update, I hope to explain why the Revelation 12 sign is not about the Church but rather the spiritual birth of Israel. I will give scriptural proof that the 144,000 are first to be caught up, followed by a wheat harvest of gentile believers in the days ahead.  Please remain excited but don't pack your bags just yet!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!"
(Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal

June 20, 2017:
Friends, for the first time, I am presenting the impact site of the "great mountain burning with fire" described by John in Revelation Chapter 8, the object responsible for the great fire that sweeps through "that great City Babylon," also described in Revelation Chapter 18. I hope it becomes clear as you read this update that this refers to the center of global power both in first century Babylon and where it continues until this very day.

Meteor Strikes Tyrhenian Sea-2.png

Let's read what John wrote:

"And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. 9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come." (Rev 18:1-10)

This passage is usually thought to be a description of events at the end of a 7 year tribulation, but I assure you that it refers to events at the opening of the 7th Seal just before the arrival of the Antichrist. It is also believed by some that this passage refers to New York City, but again, reference here to Babylon points to the Dragon's seat of power at the heart of his command center, which was, and for now continues to be, the city of Rome.

In earlier updates, we discussed how John's depiction of this object points to an incoming meteor that he sees strike the ocean at the opening of the 7th Seal, but now I want to share with you which ocean will be the site of this horrendous impact. The following map shows where it must strike in order to reach the whore of Mystery Babylon, which is also the idolatrous throne of the False Prophet, where he resides in Vatican City.

Slide 1h.png

Impact simulation software at London's Purdue University was used to determine the size and effect of this meteor, with input data below. I am also providing a LINK to the software for those who are interested.

While no simulation is perfect, the large scale destruction John writes about in the book of Revelation is so specific that we are able to learn the meteor's approximate size and speed, as well as the parameters of the blast zone required to create the destruction seen in his vision.

In Revelation 16:18, John is shown the greatest of all earthquakes, an event many believe to be a result of the San Andreas fault line giving way in Southern California. But according to scientists, the tectonic features of San Andreas will produce no more than an 8.0 or at most a 9.0 magnitude earthquake.

The largest recorded earthquake based on modern measurements is known to have struck Chile in 1960 and was measured at 9.5 on the Richter scale. Thus, in order for the earthquake John describes in Chapter 16 of Revelation to be larger than the Earthquake that struck Chile in 1960, it must approach magnitude 10.0!

"And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great." (Rev 16:18-21)

The geophysical stresses responsible for such a massive quake would, according to the impact simulater, result from a meteor with a diameter of between 5 to 7 miles and an impact velocity of at least 65,000 miles per hour. I show the effects of this by projecting an impact site roughly 100 miles off the coast of Italy, where a shock wave moves 800 miles (or more) in all directions from the impact epicenter.

Italy Blow up.png

The submersion of islands and the leveling of mountains with consequent hail upon local populations is a clear depiction of the aftermath of an asteroid striking water and ejecting massive amounts of debris into the atmosphere. As we shall see, the fourth trumpet of the 7th Seal even prophesies the reduction of sunlight as a result of this debris when it remains airborne, probably for a period of at least several months.

Let's continue with John's description of events, this time from Chapter 8:

"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. 8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise." (Rev 8:7-12)

Setting aside for the moment that two objects are described in this passage, I want to address John's reference to a third of the trees and all the grass catching fire. In order for grass in the entire world to ignite as a result of a meteor impact, the object would have to be at least 275 miles wide, an impossibility since the blast would then destroy humanity and all other life on the planet.  Rather, John says fire will ignite only one third of the trees, thus we can be sure that what he sees represents a local blast radius sufficient to cause the world's greatest earthquake and still leave humanity at large intact. 

My meteor impact modeling shows that the size of the object necessary to create a 9.7 to 10.0 magnitidue earthquake (satisfying this key condition in Revelation 16:18) as well as igniting all grass inside the blast zone, and many of the trees, is a meteor between 5-7 miles in diameter.  Such an impact will produce a 1,600 mile wide blast zone and a shockwave traveling at least 800 miles in every direction from the epicenter of the impact.

In this scenario, London narrowly escapes the meteor shockwave and leaves the Antichrist's secondary power center intact, allowing him to engage in all the military exploits seen by Daniel during the final months of Great Tribulation before the return of Christ.

[Note: I expect both the US and Britain to be used by the Antichrist as a base of operations during his attempts at global conquest until Jesus returns as early as the Fall of 2018 or as late as Sukkot in 2020. If the Lord should tarry longer, we must watch for him and know that our appointed times are near!]

The greatest destruction will naturally occur within the first half of the blast zone area before tapering off as the shock wave gradually loses force at the outer edges.  It's heat and wind will destroy all of Italy, most of France, half of Germany, part of Spain, and large portions of the rest of Europe, with millions of lives lost in a only a matter of hours.

I expect the Vatican to be emptied out and the Pope to be relocated, possibly to southern Greece, which might escape the full brunt of the meteor shock wave. World markets will collapse, and social unrest will bring martial law to much of Europe.

In the same time frame as these events, we look for a near-fatal head wound to disable former President Obama and lead to use of advanced robotics in a medical application that allows him to address the public remotely through a facsimile of himself. This is what John in the book of Revelation described as the "image of the beast." (Rev 13:15,16)

In addition, the war of Psalm 83 leading to war with Israel is found in the same matrix of scripture!  I know it all sounds farfetched, but scripture is often more dramatic than films out of Hollywood, and the events in Revelation are nothing short of spectacular. I further expect Kim Jong Un to be assasinated for reasons that are beyond the scope of this message.

2017 montage.png

Keep in mind that John had no knowledge of modern technology, so when he saw drones, missiles, fighter jets, comets, and a statue that speaks, he could only describe those images using concepts familiar to him. In today's world, we know that statues do not speak, but as you saw in earlier updates, an artificial human can be tethered to its owner and given a semblance of life using synthetic speech and movement! [See image above showing a synthetic copy of its inventor]

In my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, I explain how the Clock identifies Barack Obama as the First Beast and why the Antichrist figurehead is in fact the Second Beast, derived by using Daniel's Master Prophecy Number and the exact time of the Antichrist's birth. This is how the identity of the Antichrist has been revealed in my book, and in these updates.

The new King of England will rise to power following the Obama event and it is he who will bring about the Mark of the beast, as recorded in Revelation 13:15,16. The False Prophet is a third individual, completing the 666 emulation of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

I have listened carefully to Mark Taylor's prophecies and I believe he is being shown the work of the 144,000 during the events of the 7th Seal.  I do not, however, believe that Trump is going to lead America to a time of new prosperity as Mr. Taylor says.

The message of the Clock Prophecy is that Trump was sent to force Satan's hand and bring us to the events of Revelation 13 and the rise of the Antichrist out of Europe.  We cannot avoid this key fulfillment of Bible prophecy required to bring about the return of Christ!

In closing, let me remind you of the passage quoted above calling for the saints to "come out of her... that you partake not of her sins," a reference I believe to early Rapture as the events of the second and third trumpets of the 7th Seal wreak destruction upon Rome, and perhaps PART of the USA if the third trumpet should reach America. 

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal

June 4, 2017: Friends, as you may recall, I teach an early Rapture as foreshadowed by the taking of Enoch in Genesis, which I believe represents the 144,000, or the "man child," of Revelation Chapter 12.  A sign in the heavens this Fall seems to match the words of John in that passage, also discussed in my video, "A Sign in the heavens - the Birth of the Manchild /144,000."

This will not be a same-day Rapture for every believer as the modern church teaches, which is why Jesus describes four groups of men in the fields of harvest at the time of his return.  See Chapter 5 of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, for the only explanation of why Jesus said those alive when he returns will be paid out of order, and why there are four groups, rather than one, to be taken.

This warning from Jesus would be meaningless unless our departure was by individual appointment during the last 7 trumpets!

144k slide.JPG

I hope you understand that the 144,000, described by John as the first fruits of the harvest (Rev 14:4) are not the entire body of believers to be saved in these last days.  There will be many millions who are not part of the early harvest who will take part in a later harvest.

The danger of same-day Rapture theology is that Satan will use it  against Christians who are not part of the early harvest.  He will deceive them into believing they were rejected by God and tell them to take the MARK in order to protect their families. The truth is that the harvest will be divided and those who labor until their appointed times will be taken in the order of God's choosing.

Jesus sees his children as individuals, which is why Enoch was raptured, but Abraham was not.  It's the reason Elijah was caught up, but Elisha was not. These accounts were not given to entertain us, but rather to warn us that a divided harvest is coming to those in the churches. If you want to pass God's final test of faith and loyalty, you need to watch properly and Hear what the Spirit is saying to you.

It is because the divided harvest is not a one-day event that the "day and hour" are not known to us.  Why would Jesus tell us to watch if all we had to do was mark our calendars?  Those who profess they can know the date of the Rapture are being used by the enemy to keep you out of the Rapture.  Giving godspeed to them places you at risk of missing the Rapture yourself!

The link below provides a true story of a young boy who saw Jesus and was told of future events. Just when I had begun to think that the Nephilim were unlikely to appear in physical form, we have testimony that such a thing could be about to occur. 


I want to point out a news item concerning the recent terrorist attacks in London and where this seems to be heading. A very interesting headline reads, "Saturday Islamic terror attacks a tipping point in campaign to destroy the West."  [Article Link]

According to Frank Gaffney, president of the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, and an expert on terror:

“My view is that we are no longer facing random acts of terrorism. We have reached a tipping point. This is now an insurgency...the Muslim terrorist population in Britain and Europe...have built an infrastructure, they have put it in place, and now they are moving up to the next level.”

Anti-Terror British Police Squad.png

Gaffney referred to this threat as “Sharia Supremacism” and said the United States is on the same trajectory as Europe.

Remember our discussion in recent years that MARK technology will be used to assure "peace and safety" in the midst of all this terrorism? And why England is prime for its roll-out even before it comes to America? I believe you can see how all of this is now coming to pass. The MARK is getting closer with each passing day!

I may be commenting on the prophecies of Mark Taylor and how his understanding falls into the prophetic timeline in an upcoming update, so stay tuned!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

May 12, 2017:
  Friends, today is the 7 year anniversary of a visitation of the Lord Jesus Christ in my home on this day in the Spring of 2010. It started on March 18 and came to a close in the late afternoon of May 12 when he appeared to me, an experience I write about in the introduction of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches.

It is not possible to fully describe all the miracles that were part of this nearly 8 week divine visitation or its affect on my life. What began as an outpouring of His Spirit one morning in March came to a close 55 days later when he stood in front of me in my living room and I collapsed at his feet like a dead man. It did indeed feel as if I was going to die. 

It is not my purpose to persuade anyone that my story is real, nor do I claim I am the only person in modern times to see the Lord Jesus Christ.  There have been others, and some of them I have had the pleasure of speaking with.  Those who find this account implausible are trapped in modern church doctrine and believe that prophecy came to an end with the death of the last Apostle when he wrote the book of Revelation. Nothing could be further from the truth.

John Writes-3.JPG.png

What so many don't know is that John was prophesied to return to Earth at the end of time (Rev. 10:11 / Psl 71:20) and share this end time message with those in the churches who would be willing to hear.  While time is not completely up, we are nearing the end of this final generation when Jesus will re-enter Jerusalem and begin his divine rule over planet  Earth. 

Everything happening right now in the world of politics, the media, and global society is leading us to the events of the 7th Seal, which is why Obama's date with destiny is not yet fulfilled. He continues to operate on behalf of the forces of darkness from his center of power in DC, and once he comes out of hiding, I expect his near-fatal head wound will bring us to Critical Mass on the Clock.

Obama's role as the beast "image" will be used by the Antichrist to consolidate his own base of power out of Europe, meaning Brexit and the break up of the EU will be re-engineered somehow under the edicts of the new King of England. I identify him by name in Chapter 6 of my book.

While many hold to the belief that the First beast is the Antichrist, and the Second beast is his False Prophet, please rest assured that this is not the case. See Chapter 6 of my book for how the Clock identifies three key players from the book of Revelation and why Obama is a forerunner to the Antichrist, the 8th King and final world tyrant.

[Note: In Chapter 7 of my book, I share from scripture why I expect our final generation to end as early as the Fall of 2018 and as late as the Fall of 2020.]

The Dragon's struggle to maintain dominance over America is part of the war of the beast against the lamb in Revelation 17:14. We can already see this battle through the valor of President Trump as he wrestles with the forces of darkness and spiritual depravity that took hold and spread during Obama's presidency.

Obama vs Trump2.JPG.png

Despite my desire to see all of this come to an end by the end of the fourth Watch on the Clock in late 2016, those of you familiar with this ministry know I have said for many years that we would all be surprised by the timing of end time events.

What exactly did the end date on the Clock signal?  As with the opening of the First Seal in late 2012, where it converged on the Clock with the largest storm in recorded history (see pages 19 and 20 of my book for proof) the Clock end date marked the physical manifestation of a spiritual event.

Remember that the assault on international banking was just beginning in 2012 with the mysterious deaths of several high profile bankers whose careers were marked by all the corrupt practices of modern finance (Rev 9:21) -- exactly where Revelation 6:1 (and Psalm 40:7) arrived on the Clock! 

These banker slayings were part of Christ's vengeance upon modern Babylon as the Lamb began his conquest of the nations at the opening of the First Seal. While more than 100 bankers have now been terminated by the hand of God in the early days of his divine Judgment, his war against the Beast is far from over.

The Clock end date was marked by a meeting of 70 nations that convened to officially deny Israel its capital city, a declaration of war against Christ by the Dragon last Fall.  This is why the Clock end date converged with John's prophecy for a war in Israel we know as the battle of Armageddon. While this has not yet come to a full climax, it is this event in scripture that converged in real time on the Clock and promises to bring the sword of the Almighty against the nations!

"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God." (Rev 19:15)

I believe this verse refers to the birth of the 144,000, who become the sword of his mouth to bring about the conquest of the nations under the divine rule of the one true King!

Are you beginning to see why the Second Coming is not a one day event, and why the opening of the First Seal was like a "thief in the night" long before the sign of the woman in heaven later this Fall?

The birth of the man-child and the birth of the Kingdom age under Jesus Christ are the same event, and that is why the return of our Lord is now in progress!

Should we expect a Rapture event sometime this year?  I believe the 144,000 will be caught up as early as this Fall, however no man knows the day or hour.  That is why we Watch!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

April 24, 2017: Friends, I have added revised artwork to show the meaning of 666 in the current update, dated April 8, 2017 (see below.)  This is also the new thumbnail for the latest video. I hope this helps make clear why 666 is three men and not two as the modern church believes!

We have entered a special Watch based on the reverse 1,260 day count from Sukkot in 2020. This could bring us to a major event involving North Korea's Kim Jong-Un or the meteor strike prophesied in Revelation 8:7,8, as well as the start of the early Raptures. These issues are also discussed in the update posted below. I hope you will help me share this end time message with others. If you would like a free copy of my book, let me know, as I have a small quantity ready to ship. God bless and keep Watching!

April 8, 2017: Friends, a number of my readers continue to believe that Barack Obama is the Antichrist, however this has not been the message of the Clock Prophecy.  There is no biblical reason to believe that Obama can fulfill the figurehead role of 666. The identity of 666 is comprised of three individuals rather than two as the modern church believes, a topic discussed at length in Chapter 6 of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches.

The Clock has identified former President Obama as the First Beast of Revelation, thus he is the first "6" in 666, making him the 7th King and forerunner to the 8th King, who is the Second Beast, who himself will arise from Europe to become the Antichrist figurehead sometime (I expect) before 2020.

Where does the False Prophet fit in?  According to scripture, he is yet a third individual, completely separate from either of the two final Kings (and two beasts) of Revelation Chapters 11 and 17. The False Prophet (identified on the Clock as the current Pope) is a secondary figure in 666 but receives only one pre-Armageddon mention in the entire book of Revelation. Please note that the terms "beast" and "false prophet" are not used interchangeably a single time in John's book of prophecy.

666 Triangulation.png

So, what is Obama's role in 666? It is to become the IMAGE of the Beast, which the world's last tyrannical ruler will use as a kind of banner to deceive the masses before requiring them to take the MARK. The Pope will support both individuals. You can learn what all this means by reading Chapter 6 of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, which I hope you will share with others if you have not already done so.

Let's discuss the timeline.

I continue to Watch for the conclusion of a lunar eclipse pattern that began just days before the start date on the Clock and ends in January of 2019. Although a partial eclipse brings the pattern to a close early that year, we look for a total eclipse to take place six months earlier and some eight weeks before Sukkot (Tabernacles) in 2018. The reason for this is that Jesus said the moon would not give her light immediately before his bodily return.

There are other reasons the moon might go dark or fail to reflect sunlight at the end of our final generation, but a full lunar eclipse is the only event that we know will occur in such close proximity to Sukkot between now and the end of an 80-year Hebrew generation in early 2021. This is why the Lord's coming may occur as early as late summer in 2018 or, if the events of the 7th Seal require a full count of 1,260 days based on a 42 month period of fulfillment as described in Revelation 13, the Fall of 2020.

Even if only 630 days are required for those events based on a measurement of the text itself, the end may come as late as 2020 due to the fact that the 7th Seal may not open until 630 days prior to Sukkot in 2020. I will continue to be partial to a 2018 end point unless we reach the Fall of 2017 without the 7th Seal having opened.

What if a biblical generation extends beyond an 80 year period of time as some believe? That would mean we move beyond the range of the black ring portion on the Clock itself. At this point, we are watching for an oceanic meteor strike as recorded in Revelation 8 and the horizon-limited fire wall resulting from that impact as proof that the 7th Seal has opened. We can be sure when this happens that the early Raptures will begin (not end) and that within another 630 to 1,260 days after that time, Jesus will physically re-take Jerusalem. 

Based on a 1,260 day count for the events of the 7th Seal, which is possible, here is where the 7th Seal has to open in 2017:

Oct 3, 2020 (Sukkot) - 1260 = April 22, 2017

We may be just days away from the opening of the 7th Seal and 630 to 1,260 days until the Lord's re-entry into Jerusalem!

Is it possible that Asteroid 2014-J025, which is now approaching the Earth, is the "burning mountain" John describes in Revelation Chapter 8?  Might this asteroid become the meteor that opens the 7th Seal? Based on measurements provided by the space agency, it is far too small and far too distant from the Earth to affect us in any way. However, a previously undetected asteroid might be approaching from another direction that manages to take us completely by surprise only a few days later! The early Raptures could well begin (but not end) later this month!

The message of the Clock Prophecy is that no prophetic fulfillment will be confined to a single point in time for every believer, and this is why we should avoid those who claim to know the "day or hour" of any future event.

Another core teaching of this ministry is that the key to early entry into the Marriage is obedience. What this means broadly speaking is that we maintain sexual purity, a clean temple, love for others, forgiveness, and daily prayer. Make it about your relationship with Jesus and doing the things that please Him!

I know that many of us appreciate the break we have had from Obama since the election of Donald Trump, but we need to be aware that things can change very quickly. I believe we are already seeing the restoration of all things as prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 17, for one because so many of the things done by evil officials are being brought out into the open. At the same time, we are seeing the rise of the Beast and the conditions necessary for the appearance of the Antichrist.

The enemy has been permitted to have a level of influence in political and social life that God is using to separate the wheat from the tares, and it is not over yet.

As you know, I have talked about the role of Kim Jong-Un in our progression to Critical Mass on the Clock.  Now we see events concerning North Korea coming to a boil, and I cannot stress too strongly how important this will be for us. While the head wound event in Revelation 13 is tied to Obama, there is a convergence of some kind between these two men that will move us into the 7th Seal.

I believe North Korea's leader will be fatally wounded and I expect Obama to survive his own near-fatal head wound in the same relative timeframe. Obama's date with destiny may wait until his return to public life even if that does not entail a future leadership role in the US or at the United Nations.


If conditions allow, I will expand on this developing story in a future update, hopefully before the start of the early Raptures!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal 

March 5, 2017:  Friends, you may know that in Chapter 4 of my book, I explain the fact that Daniel places the Lord's death inside the 70th and final Week, which is why the modern church teaching of a 7 year Tribulation cannot be true.  In my book, I show why this means we entered the "tribulation of those days" (Matt 24:29) with the fulfillment of Ezekiel 20:34 during Hitler's holocaust upon the Jewish people at the rebirth of modern Israel. There is no other context in which Jesus uses the word "tribulation," except to describe the birth pangs of a modern Jewish state and our personal state of affliction living in modern Babylon.

[Note: The words "great tribulation" have a somewhat separate and distinct meaning, a topic discussed elsewhere on this website.]

I further show how the remainder of Daniel's final week most likely began on Yom Kippur in 2014, for reasons explained in the final chapter of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches. Finally, I point to the Lord's return as early as Sukkot in 2018, or as late as 2020 based on the time allotted to us by King David in Psalms 90:10.

Now I want us to look at the exciting possibility that a stellar alignment in September of this year may be yet another prophetic marker in our progression to Critical Mass on the Clock. This means we are about to reach all the events of Revelation 13, the opening of the 7th Seal, and of course, the Rapture.

woman in heaven.png

I have listened to a wide range of commentary on this topic and found one presentation that stood out from all the rest.  Below you will find a link to a video by James Muecke, which you may want to watch before reading the rest of this update. While there are a number of aspects in his teaching that I disagree with, I find his approach to Bible prophecy broadly consistent with my own understanding of the end times.


Before I continue, let me repeat an important theme of prophetic fulfillment that we have talked about in past updates. It is the use of prophetic layers, or the repetition of a prophesied event in a later and separate timeframe.

As one example, a more historical approach to Bible prophecy marks fulfillment of John's 1,260 days as a period of years counting from the advent of Catholicism in 538AD until its near demise in 1798AD, a portrayal of the beast and its recovery from a deadly head wound over a period of 1,260 years. I see every reason to be in agreement with this interpretation.

However, note that John refers to a period of 42 months in the same passage, meaning we should also understand this to be a period of 1,260 actual days. Why? Because John uses the Greek word
menas, defined as a literal month wherever it appears.

This is important because it means we cannot assume certain key prophecies have been fulfilled in all their possible layers just because an earlier prophetic layer has already taken place.

I suggest that we take a "both / and" as opposed to an "either / or" approach to Bible prophecy in order to see these remarkable dual fulfillments as a kind of signature of God's divine authorship throughout scripture

I encourage you to look at the importance of prophetic signs without making the assumption they will give us the day and hour of key events that may be associated with them.  While such convergences can and do occur, most often they will not come to completion until a later point in time.

It is partly due to these prophetic layers that we cannot know the day or hour of the Rapture or any other future event, therefore such signs most likely point to imminence rather than to exact timing. 

Now I want to share why I am excited about a celestial alignment that will occur in September of this year, and why I now believe this to be a marker for the arrival of Critical Mass on the Clock. 


The woman who stands upon the moon while preparing to give birth, whose head is crowned with 12 stars, and whose child is threatened by a great dragon before being delivered and caught up to heaven, is described by John in Revelation 12:1,2. This rare configuration of stars and planets on September 23, 2017, appears to match the symbology of this passage using what is called Stellarium, a computer program with the ability to project the position of stars and planets many years in advance.

This cosmic pattern will be found within and around the constellation Virgo, represented by the figure of a woman, as well as the addition of three planets that, when added to the nine stars of Leo, bring the total number of luminous bodies in the arrangement to twelve. This does not include the lower 12 stars that make up Virgo.  I find it perfectly sensible that numerous stellar objects from various parts of our galaxy would be required to fulfill this very complex alignment. 

Note that a fourth planet, Jupiter, moves very slowly through the woman, specifically through the area analagous to her uterus, suggesting a birth event and thereby completing the symbolic narrative of the passage. Note that all of this culminates immediately after (rather than during) the Feast of Trumpets in 2017!

Some have asserted that this event is not rare at all due to the frequency with which Jupiter moves through Virgo every eleven years or so. Let me point out that this is only one feature of the overall pattern, therefore it is the combination of all features described in Revelation 12:1 that demonstrates the rarity of this event.

John's birth depiction in this passage is normally taught as a reference to the birth of Christ to the virgin Mary, who symbolically represents the nation of Israel and its twelve tribes. At the same time, we know the book of Revelation looks forward to a future layer of prophetic fulfillment in anticipation of the birth of the man-child, who is, of course, the Church.

I believe the delivery of the child in Revelation 12, in part at least, refers to the salvation of modern Israel in fulfillment of Paul's prophecy that Messiah is to be revealed to ethnic Jews, at which time, "all Israel shall be saved." (Romans 11:25,26)  It should be easy to understanad why this union of Jews and gentiles in Christ will bring about the completion of the man-child prophecy at the end of our Age.

I want to share something that I have not previously talked about, despite the fact it was shown to me many years ago. I would have avoided sharing it at all, however due to the topic of this message, I am being prompted to do so. Please keep in mind that the Clock Prophecy is about the imminence of the return of Jesus Christ and not the person called to deliver this end time message.

The Lord had instructed me to measure the passage of time between my date of birth and the start date of our final generation on May 11, 1942. The result was to be overlayed to the book of Revelation, and the resulting placement in scripture noted. I did this, and the result carried forward to the exact hour and minute of my birth on exactly my date of birth at the start of the third word in Revelation 12:2! As shown below, this mathematical convergence points to exactly that day in 2014. 

Dec 17, 2010 + ((2,520/404) x 195.14432) = APR 17, 2014 5:41AM

As already stated, the man-child refers to the Church in total, therefore we are all represented by the man-child, thus it refers to each of us and to all of us. I make absolutely no claim that it refers to me uniquely.

What was the purpose of this placement in time giving the exact hour and minute of my birth in 2014 on exactly the date of my birth? It was given to confirm my connection in time to Revelation 10:10,11 and to the equivalent linked prophecy in Psalms 71:19, a key validation of this end time message.  You will find the mathematical proof of this in my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, on page 37. 

I hope this explains why 2014 has been so prominently discussed in so many of my past updates, and why I had hoped we would reach Critical Mass on the Clock during that year, where the Antichrist himself first appears in Revelation Chapter 13. In fact, he did make an appearance at the White House when he met with President Obama in a previously undisclosed meeting just several weeks later, as documented in Chapter 6 of my book.


If the stellar alignment in 2017 truly has prophetic significance, then we should find some connection to it on the Clock.  In fact, I have documented such a connection by pointing to the mathematical link between Revelation 12:1 and Psalms 78:13 on pages 38 and 39 of the book.

The importance of this matrix (see monograph 6 in Chapter 3) is that it refers to the moon at the woman's feet in Revelation 12 and to the first Passover (a new moon) in Psalms 78 exactly where BOTH passages arrive on the Clock during the Blood Moon on Passover in 2014!

[Note that this occured at exactly the hour of the eclipse, a divine witness to the veracity of the Clock Prophecy.]

While my personal convergence in the subsequent verse referring to the man-child took place just two days later on my birthday, another convergence took place when my mother passed just three weeks later on May 7, 2014 with our passage through Revelation 12:5 on the Clock.

Note that this is the only verse in Revelation that uses the Greek word, "harpazo," meaning to be "caught up."

Many are just noticing the word "harpazo" in this passage, but it was on my list of Watch dates in 2014 due to the fact that it arrived on the Clock that Spring. It was this placement on the Clock that gave me hope my mother would live to experience the Rapture before her death.  It was a matter of great comfort to me, however, that the Lord chose to take my mother during this passage where it fell on the Clock at that time.

It appears the upcoming star pattern in September is a reprisal of the Revelation 12 depiction, but why should this happen more than three years after the arrival of this verse on the Clock? Again, we are observing prophetic layers as a demonstration of God's divine signature in scripture, not because we can use them to give us the "day or hour," but to heighten our vigil during this critical period of our Watch.

In light of the foregoing, let us consider the 42 months of John's vision and see if there is any numeric link between Revelation 12:1 where it fell on the Clock in 2014 and the constellation alignment taking place in September of this year.

Here is what happens when we add 1,260 days to the date of the Blood Moon passover in 2014 where it fell at exactly Revelation 12:1 on the Clock:

April 15, 2014 + 1,260 = SEPT 26, 2017

This is an exciting result because it falls on September 26, just three days after the celestial alignment, and immediately after the Feast of Trumpets four days earlier!  Please remember, however, that we are not confined to a 24-hour period of fulfillment for any prophesied event and thus our Watch in September will not be limited to either one of these dates.

Could it be that this heavenly sign in September points to the Rapture? It may well be pointing to the removal of the 144,000, which is most likely the barley portion of the harvest representing the first group to be taken, as Jesus prophesied in the vineyard parable (Matthew 20:1-16.) I cover this fully in Chapter 5 of my book, which explains what Jesus said about Rapture timing, and the fact it will not be a one day event. I personally expect our exodus to take place over a period of one complete Watch on the Clock, or about 521 days.

I want to remind you that my understanding of our place on the timeline points to the imminence of the Psalm 83 war, two large meteor impacts described by John in Revelation Chapter 8, and a near fatal head wound (Rev 13:3) that Barack Obama appears to narrowly survive. 

There can be no doubt that these events in combination will bring a level of social upheaval unlike anything we have seen during our lifetimes, certainly not on a global scale. Once the 7th Seal has opened, we know the eary Raptures will begin and the Antichrist will take power. 

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal

February 5, 2017:  Friends, this update is about a serious matter I have not addressed before in great detail, but the time has come for me to do so. The Renee M channel, which many know as the channel of Renee Moses, now teaches that those to be taken in the Rapture have to know the actual date the Rapture will occur in order not to be left behind.

This dangerous deception is based on her claim that the words, "...but if the good man of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would not have suffered his house to be broken into..." (Matt 24:44) means we are to know the literal date of the Rapture.

That is certainly not what Jesus meant by these words!

Watch therefore.JPG

She claims this date will be revealed
by her in some final revelation following 30 missed Rapture date guesses since 2011! The new date just released by Renee M falls curiously on my birthday, April 17, 2017, which brings me to the reason for this message.

Several years ago, I contacted Renee Moses (who later adopted the name Renee M) and had several private exchanges with her. Or rather, I exchanged comments with someone representing the Renee M channel that may or may not have been the same individual. I will explain that comment in a moment.

We discussed prophecy, and of course the Rapture, as well as a technical issue affecting the Renee M YouTube channel at the time. I provided some technical advice and shortly afterward the graphic display problem was corrected. There was more communication between us in 2012, but I felt something was not right and it was not immediately clear to me what that was.

Very soon after this a conflict arose between Renee Moses and another YouTube ministry, called A-Mighty Wind, owned by Elizabeth Nikomia and her husband Niko, when they were contacted by Renee and asked if they would be willing to mirror her videos. But when it was learned that she believed (or claimed to believe) that the date of the Rapture was to be revealed by her, she was rebuked by Niko and a video was put out by his organization warning the YouTube Christian community to reject her teachings. Many other videos with a similar warning soon followed.

I was unaware until all of this happened that Renee (or whoever owns the Renee M channel) believed she could know the date of the Rapture, a teaching obviously contrary to the words of Jesus in several Bible passages. It was then that I made an attempt to steer her away from this teaching, but she chose to ignore my warning and would no longer respond to my messages. I later offered her my phone number through a private channel, but again she chose not to respond.

I began to realize after the start of 2013 that Rapture dates issued by the Renee M channel were the same dates (or very close to the same dates) I had been discussing in my own presentation of the Clock Prophecy on my website and in my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, republished under its new title in 2016. The difference, of course, is that I have always stated we cannot know, predict, or figure out the date of the Rapture, and that a "day and hour we think not" means just that.  As I have said many times, I do not know the day or hour of any future event. 

I later advised the owner of the Renee M channel to stop violating my copyright and appropriating my materials to suggest that the date of the Rapture can be foreknown. Her channel had already violated the copyright of several other individuals, some of which I name later in this message. Immediately afterward, my image was used in a video pointing back to the Renee M channel through a sock puppet account, at which point I threatened legal action against the Renee M channel. The video immediately disappeared.

I am convinced this was done for two reasons: First, to see if I would find the violation, and second, to see if I would do something about it.

Having worked in the PR world a number of years ago, I have come to the conclusion that Renee M (or Renee Moses) probably does not exist. The person behind the voice is real, of course, but the Renee M persona is very likely to be a fabrication. I have also seen evidence of subscriber "padding" to the account, meaning the majority of its subs are probably sock puppet accounts purchased for a few hundred dollars. I doubt the Renee M channel has more than about 7,000 actual subscribers. All of this appears to be a PR dis-info campaign created by the enemies of Christ to do harm to legitimate Christian prophetic ministry.

I mentioned before that the upcoming Rapture date prediction of Renee M is my birthday, April 17, 2017. I also mentioned that my image was used for a video pointing back to the Renee M channel. While these violations of my privacy are concerning, the real purpose of my message here is to fully expose this false teaching and reaffirm that Jesus in no way said we must know the date of the Rapture to be caught up at his coming!

secret rapture..JPG

My past experience with the Renee M channel convinces me that a records search was probably done to learn my date of birth as part of a cynical attack on this end time ministry and to promote a never-ending set of false Rapture dates.

I said last year that the Renee M channel was planning another round of Rapture date predictions for 2017, and as we can see, that is exactly what happened. Only now it is also promoting an extension of the timeline for the Second Coming to late 2020, yet another match to my discussion of that very year as the concluding year of our final generation in Chapter 7 of my book!

In my book, I state emphatically that we cannot know if the Lord Jesus Christ will or will not return in any particuar year, despite evidence our final generation may indeed come to a close as early as late 2020. In fact, it could happen sooner!

The Renee M channel says there will be yet another revised "Rapture Puzzle" book citing its 31st Rapture date guess and its third Second Coming prediction during its six years of operation. [Note: the 5th revised "Rapture Puzzle" was released just two days following this update.]

While Renee Moses has deleted over 500 videos and replaced her website content more times than anyone can count, my YouTube channel retains all but three of its original videos and, rather than removal of website content,
after 7 years of operation, my Bible prophecy website is now the largest in the world!

Here are some additional facts you may not know about the Renee M / Renee Moses channel:

1) The Renee M channel plagiarized the book title and cover of author Odell Griffin, who published his identically titled book in 2008
2) The Renee M website used the image of 2 well known Filipino TV personalities without their knowledge or permission
3) The Renee M channel used content belonging to the GodsHealer7 YouTube channel without permission
4) The Renee M channel used content belonging to the 9Nania channel without permission (later removed)
5) The Renee M channel used content previously published by me without permission (some of it later removed)

The Renee M channel claims that knowing the date of the Rapture would somehow convince millions of people that the Bible is true.  What does 30 past failed Rapture date guesses tell them? 

To determine whether or not the Renee M channel is truly a Christian outreach, here are some additional facts to consider:

1) No where does the Renee M channel/website offer an invitation to accept Christ.
2) No where does the Renee M channel/website explain the salvation message.
3) No where does the Renee M channel/website teach New Testament doctrine of any kind.
4) No one has ever seen, met, or spoken to Renee Moses.
5) No one has ever come forward to corroborate the many claims Renee M has made about herself.
6) My attempts to have the Renee M channel owner contact me privately by telephone have gone unanswered.

Anyone who claims they will know the date of the Rapture before it happens is deceiving you.

The real purpose of the Clock Prophecy is to help us keep Watch, not to know the day or hour of any future event. If you read my book, you will see that I quote the Lord Jesus heavily and frame my discussion of the end times using ALL of His words, not just a single verse that I use selectively to support a private doctrine in violation of 2 Peter 1:20. 

God bless as you continue to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

January 21, 2017:  Friends, the successful inauguration of Donald Trump as President is a scenario I discuss on page 101 of my book (and in earlier updates), in which we consider Barack Obama's future (possible) role at the United Nations and his date with destiny as early as this Fall. I continue to believe Obama to be the First Beast of Revelation, and that his near-fatal head wound will trigger the rise of the Antichrist out of Europe and bring about the MARK, as described in Revelation Chapter 13.

Trump Inauguration.png

We must also consider the possibility that Trump will be deposed as a surrogate of the Russian government and his Presidency terminated using evidence fabricated against him. At this point, those who wish to re-instate Obama to power in America are capable of almost anything! 

You can probably imagine why current events are bitter-sweet for me, if for no other reason than because it suggests we have longer to wait before the Lord's return.  At the same time, I am not saddened to see Trump take office and Obama lose power, even though I know it cannot end here.

The Paris meeting in January extends the assault of the nations on the state of Israel, and should Obama get an appointment at the UN later this year as some suggest, his role in Revelation 13 could become apparent at that time. We continue to be at the brink of Critical Mass on the Clock with fulfillment of Luke 21:35 in front of us.

"For as a snare shall it come upon all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth." (Lk 21:35)

A friend of this ministry, and a sister in Christ, sent me a long comment the other day, sharing the testimony of a mother whose 5 year old son said that Jesus spoke to him, saying a climactic event would take place in another 600 days. She noted that from the date of this child's tesimony, a period of 600 days carries us into late Summer of 2018. Of course, that is the same point in time I discuss in chapter 7 of my book as the year I believe the Lord will physically return in September, for reasons explained in that chapter. I discuss other possibilities, as well, due to my understanding that our generation may not conclude until 2020.  As always, I do not know the day or hour of any future event.

I want to wish President Trump the best, and I am hopeful for additional time to minister to the lost, but we must be prepared for the possibility that Obama will fulfill his role in Bible prophecy at any time.

I want to remind you that tomorrow, January 23, 2017, is the end of the "one half hour of silence in heaven" as measured by the Clock, assuming this period of 144 days began at the Clock end date on September 2, 2016.  Since I do not know the answer to that question, I am not certain if the 7th Seal is to open now or not. Keep Watching!

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

January 16, 2017: Friends, the consortium in which 70 nations were gathered in Paris to express their ire for the Jewish state on January 15 was an expected progression in our move to Critical Mass on the Clock. This meeting was ignored by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the incoming Trump team chose appropriately not to engage with it.  This hatred of Israel among the nations, and Obama's similar nod to a UN resolution condemning Israel last month, means that Judgment upon them will not be held back much longer.

We have also learned that Turkey's President Erdogan has received expanded powers through adoption of a new constitution that will give him totalitarian control over his country. This will bring Turkey to the nexus of Islamic power in a confederacy of several Arab states prophesied to attack Israel in Psalm 83.  This is the third domino to fall in that direction in just the last four weeks.

Erdogan 2017b.JPG.png

If you have been reading my updates, you know that I have marked January 23 as a possible conclusion for the "half hour of silence" in heaven, a period of about 144 days, between the 6th and 7th Seals. Please read Chapter 2 of my book for the evidence that we have moved further into the Seals of Revelation than most believe, and why this points to the first of several Rapture events if we should see the head wound event this week. 

If the head wound to President Obama does not happen here as expected, a scenario that I discuss at length in my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches, it means Obama could be headed for the United Nations in the Fall, in which case we may not see the events of the 7th Seal before late this year.  I feel that to be most unlikely, but as always, I do not know the day or hour of any future event, so we just have to Watch!

I continue to expect the Lord's bodily return at the end of the Age in 2018, but as explained in Chapter 7 of my book on the biblical timeline, we may have until 2019 or as late as 2020 based on the words of King David in Psalm 90:10. I also look for the start of early Rapture at the sounding of the third trumpet, which is the second meteor prophesied to strike the Earth in the book of Revelation. 

If you have not read my discussion of Rapture timing in Chapter 5 of my book, I encourage you to do so.  Those who claim they will be given a final clue to the date of the Rapture before it happens are of a Jezebel spirit, as described in Chapter 2 of Revelation.  We cannot deny the words of Jesus and expect to enter the Marriage at our appointed times.  If you are giving ear to such individuals, you are party to their fornication and failing to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches. In order to satisfy Luke 21:36 and escape the many trials of Great Tribulation, you must be obedient in all things. 

This update may be expanded over the coming few days so please check back for more commentary.

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)

Peter John Brandal

January 1, 2017:  Friends, as you know, the Clock end date converges with John's description of the battle of Armageddon in Rev 19:15.  But just as the 7 Seals are not a one-day event, neither is the fall of the nations. We have seen through the Clock that the War of Psalm 83 and the battle of Armageddon are part of the same event, and we can expect this great battle to occur over the same period of time as the 7 trumpets of the 7th Seal. Obama's move at the UN last week to divide Israel and make her a spoil for her enemies brings us to the Dragon's persecution of the woman in Revelation 12, which will lead to all the events of Chapter 13 in the weeks to come. We may reach the end of the Age as early as 2018, or as late as the Fall of 2020, as discussed in Chapter 7 of my book, The Clock of the Four Night Watches.  

I want to share with you a number relationship on the Clock that appears to describe where we are at the moment. In my book, I present evidence that recent astronomical and geological events have brought us into John's description of the 6th Seal, as more than 40 active volcanoes have blocked sunlight over much of the world, as thousands of meteorites ("stars from heaven") have fallen to the earth, and as earthquake activity has tripled since the Clock Prophecy began in late 2010. 

We know that Revelation places a "half hour of silence" between the 6th and 7th Seals (Rev 8:1), and my book documents how the text itself gives the mathematical solution to this age-old puzzle. (See pages 47-49).  We have seen how the "half hour" is equal to almost 144 days based on the measurement of Revelation Jesus told me to carry out when he appeared to me in 2010.

I now believe the Clock end date this past September may mark the start of this 143.56 day period that will come to an end on January 23, 2017. This may be the point in time at which the 7th Seal will open, and it may mark the arrival of the first of two meteor strikes John describes in Revelation 8:7,8. I expect the early Raptures to begin with the second meteor impact, which is the third trumpet.

If we are now completing the "half hour" of silence in heaven, that would indicate the Obama head wound event must occur prior to the date of the US Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2017. This has been a key date of concern in the Clock Prophecy for some time, as it points to the fulfillment of Revelation 13:3-5. Many of my videos in 2014 and 2015 have dealt with this issue, namely that Obama is expected to remain President during a state of national emergency that will trigger the rise of the Antichrist out of Europe. As you can well imagine, these events will lead to a level of persecution against Christians in America that few are prepared for.

What about the Rapture? You may have heard many on YouTube who have been promoting a Christmas Rapture (oops), a Hanukkah Rapture, or a January 1, 2017 Rapture (today), where Hanukkah ends. You already know that I am not on board with those who believe they can know, figure out, or otherwise predict a date for the Rapture. See Chapter 5 of my book for why the Lord has not called anyone to engage in such guesswork under the guise of end time ministry. These individuals are operating from the imagination of their own hearts and a desire for vain glory that may cause them to forfeit any chance they might have had to be in the Rapture themselves. (Luke 21:36)

Only 10 hours after I posted this note referring to January 23, 2017, a particular YouTube channel known for predicting at least two dozen Rapture dates -- and which has previously made use of the Clock Prophecy in an attempt to do just that -- did it again!  Her missed Rapture prediction for the week of Christmas including January 1, 2017 was suddenly moved forward to January 21-24, 2017 in order to accomodate the latest from this end time prophecy. She used several sock puppet accounts to "suggest" the new date and almost immediately a video went up promoting this as the point of Rapture.  

Of course, I never said that January 23, 2017, would be the date of the Rapture. This is just Satan's attempt to do damage to the true prophetic message of the Clock Prophecy, which is that you must correct all areas of disobedience in your life in order to pass through the door into the Marriage at your appointed time.  As I explain in Chapter 5 of my book, the Rapture according to Jesus is not a one-day event and departure times are not the same for every believer!

This type of copycat activity is actually prophesied in the book of Daniel:  "
And when they shall have fallen they shall be relieved with a small help: and many shall be joined to them deceitfully." (Dan 11:34 / DRA) 

If the Holy Spirit leads me to share more in this update, I will post it here later on.  

God bless as you continue to Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches:

"Behold, I come quickly!" (Rev 3:11)
