The Feast is over and we are now all safely returned and preparing for the Year ahead and the continuing of the Omer Count to Pentecost (No. 173).
This Sabbath Year of the Fifth Cycle is the Last Year of that cycle referred to as the Week of the Wars of Amalek by the Samaritans in their Passover festival. They follow the week of the Omer Count and the major activities. This can be applied prophetically to the Last Jubilee (cf. Weeks of the Omer Count Applied to the last Jubilee (No. 173A)). Under this sequence we may assume that the wars we have seen go on from the Arab Spring and the Muslim uprising that resulted in the destruction of the Middle East and the Muslim invasion of Europe and the US and the British Commonwealth will continue and reach culmination over this Sabbath Year and then escalate into the Wars of the Fifth and the Sixth Trumpets as explained in the papers on the Wars of the End Part I: Wars of Amalek (No. 141C). The Samaritans referred to the last week as the Week of Standing at Sinai waiting on God to deliver the laws to Israel.
Over the next few years we will see the greatest catastrophe the world has lived through and over one third will be destroyed and then more will die in the pestilence so that over one half the world will die.
The Sardis and Laodicean eras will not escape these events. Nor indeed will the Philadelphian era escape the Wars of Amalek and the Wars of the Fifth and the Sixth Trumpets as detailed in 141C above. There is no Place of Safety (No. 194) as invented by Herbert Armstrong to pacify a spineless crew for financial purposes. We will not have finished fleeing through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes (Mat. 10:23). Our place of safety is in the hand of God. It is only the Philadelphia system as the Pillars of Philadelphia (No. 283) that will enter the First Resurrection (No. 143A) that will be spared from the great crisis of Armageddon and the Vials of the Wrath of God.(No. 141E). (cf. Revelation 3:10).
The process is simple. The Church of the Philadelphians will be taken into the First Resurrection and in that way they will be kept from the “Time of Trouble” that will come upon the whole world under the two phases of the Wars of the End Part II: 1260 Days of the Witnesses (No. 141D) and if they do not repent they will also face the Battles of Armageddon and the Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 141E) as above and then they may well fall into the Wars of the End Part IIIB: War Against Christ (No. 141E_2).
It is at the last phase after the subjugation of the planet that all false religion including the former Churches of God false teachings under the Churches of God (Seventh Day) and the WCG and Offshoots systems and the SDAs and the JWs that will be stamped out, along with every other false system on the planet
(cf. Wars of the End Part IV: End of False Religion (No. 141 F)). Only those left alive of all these systems that are determined by God as fit to go into the millennial system will be left alive to clean up the planet and allowed to live through the jubilee into the millennial system (cf. Wars of the End Part V: Restoration for the Jubilee (No. 141G)) and then take part in the millennial system and the final preparation for the destiny of mankind (cf. Wars of the End Part VB: Preparing the Elohim (No. 141H)). The Jehovah’s Witnesses and SDAs will get to take the Second prize in going into the millennial system as humans. They should have repented and kept God’s laws instead of becoming antinomians and then eaten the bread and the wine at Passover and kept God’s Calendar (No. 156), They wouldhave made it into the First Resurrection as spirit beings and then taken part in the Judgment and teaching of the Second Resurrection and Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B). It is a sad thing to settle for Second prize, through the lies of other people when you could have had First prize in the First Resurrection and not needed to be a student for 100 years.
