12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. Rev. 17:12


In the deep night hours of March 26, 2013, I was praying and supplicating the Lord that He would show me the meaning of the one hour period spoken of in Revelation 17:12. Not long after my praying, I was taken in vision and shown the following facts which are self-evident and irrefutably proven once I relate the vision, which begins with a review of Daniel Chapter 7.

Daniel Chapter 7

1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters.

2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;

20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another [LITTLE HORN—PAPACY] shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

 

It is most important to note that after the little horn beast is slain and given to burning (Daniel 7:11 and Revelation 17:16), the rest of the beasts (the 10 horned scarlet beast the whore rides upon in Rev. 17), have their dominion KINGDOM taken away yet their lives are prolonged for a season and time.

 

In verses 11, 12, the beast that is slain and burned is the sea beast which is slain and burned by the scarlet beast of Revelation 17:16:

 

Dan. 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

 

Dan. 7:12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

 

Revelation 17:16—And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.


How long does the little horn [the papacy] verse 25 (Dan. 7) last? It lasts until:

 

1.    The Judgment is set and the Judgment is not set until the people have the Sunday Law test.

2.    The beast speaks great words against the most high and changes times and laws—THE TEST OF THE SUNDAY LAW ENFORCED.

3.    The saints are worn out by being under the treading down of the beast power.

4.    42 months has passed. (Daniel 7:25 and Revelation 13:1-5).

5.    Until the Judgment sits and the Judgment won’t sit until the people are tested by all of the above.

6.    Until the dominion [KINGDOM] of the sea beast of Revelation 13, is consumed and destroyed AT THE END TIME.

7.    Until the whore that is hated by the scarlet beast of Rev. 17, is burned, Rev. 17:16.

 

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

·       The judgment does not sit (occur) until the saints are given into the hand of the fourth beast, and he begins to rule for a time, times, and the dividing of time, which is 3½ LITERAL years or 42 months AFTER THE WOUND IS HEALED PER REVELATION 13:1-5. This is literal time, not prophetic, day for a year time in the end-time application.


How long does this time period last? Answer: But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. This END OF THE LITTLE HORN (PAPAL ROME) occurs at the very end of time, when the whore that is hated is burned by the scarlet beast of Revelation 17, that hates the whore, Rev. 17:16.

 

So this time period of 42 months relative to the END of the sea beast of Revelation 13, PAPAL ROME, is the same as the 42 month period of Revelation 13:1-5, which occurs AFTER THE WOUND IS HEALED (IN CONTEXT), Rev. 13:1-5. The wound is not fully healed until the Sunday Law is ENFORCED and not until it is ENFORCED:

 

The beast with two horns (THE U.S.A.) is also to say "to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast;" and, furthermore, it is to command all, "both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond," to receive "the mark of the beast." [REV. 13:11-16.] It has been shown that the United States is the power represented by the beast with lamb-like horns, and that this prophecy will be fulfilled when the United States shall ENFORCE Sunday observance, which Rome claims as the special acknowledgment of her supremacy. But in this homage to papacy the United States will not be alone.”  {GC 578.3}

 

Did the sea beast of Revelation 13 ever come to its FINAL end in the historical 1260 year application? No! That final END is at the very end of time when the sea beast (Papal Rome) is burned. Rev. 17:16.

 

The Mystery Time Period Designated by the “ONE HOUR” in Revelation 17:12

 

Now we come to the mystery time period of “one hour,” Revelation 17:12. Until the time this very document you are reading is published, no man upon this earth has given a truthful explanation of this mystery. Why? Because God has waited until an appointed time through which He would give the answer through His appointed messenger for the last days. This should cause all to believe His messenger, but that will not be the case. Only His chosen will believe His prophets and be blessed by their message.

 

The very fact that no man has ever given the valid explanation of the ONE HOUR mystery of Revelation 17:12, proves that a truthful answer to this mystery must come from God, and that the messenger who solves that mystery by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is truly inspired. This should be proof, for what man could come up with anything new under the Sun? The answer is NO MAN! God showed me this evidence as to the verity of His messenger is for the faithful. All others will respond exactly as did the Jews to the miracles of Christ, saying that He did such by a demon. That is expected by this writer. Nevertheless, here is the answer to the mystery of the ages since the Bible was first penned. I received this answer while in vision, and was clearly shown that no men could have ever known it but by divine revelation.

 

The beauty of the divine revelation I received while in vision, is that when it is explained to you, it will be self-evident that it can be no other way than I was shown. The beauty of the mystery is that it is so simple when known that one will know it is God that has kept the mystery a secret until now. How could the great minds of men since the time the Bible was written, fail to understand this simple answer to the mystery UNTIL NOW? This truly was the work and intention of God, for the purposes I have stated.

 

In addition to all of the above material from Daniel 7, we must go to Revelation 17 for the answer to the mystery of the “one hour” time designation.

 

7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

 

·       There is a DUAL KINGDOM SHARED by the scarlet beast (Rome), and the 10 horns (TEN KINGS) that carrieth her, the whore.  These two beast powers, BOTH WITH TEN HORNS, receive A SHARED KINGDOM FOR ONE HOUR, ONE SEASON OF TIME.

·       The scarlet adorned sea beast, the pope, receives a KINGDOM, the final kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar’s image in Daniel 2—thy feet and toes KINGDOM, the toes being symbolic of the TEN HORN KINGDOM.

·       The pope beast receives its KINGDOM with the 10 horned beast she sits upon, the beast that carries her, verse 7.

·       The sea beast and the scarlet beast have one mind for a time—FOR ONE HOUR, ONE SEASON.

·       The meaning of ONE HOUR in the context of Rev. 17:12, is A SEASON OF TIME.

·       For the time of the ONE HOUR SEASON, the scarlet beast gives all its POWER, STRENGTH AND SUPPORT—EVEN FINANCIAL SUPPORT unto the sea beast (the Roman Pontiff).

·       And here is the SIMPLE MYSTERY ANSWER: The time period the Roman pontiff operates from the time the wound is healed—THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE SUNDAY LAW—THE SITTING OF THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, is 42 months. THAT IS THE ONE HOUR SEASON THAT THE SEA BEAST AND THE SCARLET BEAST ARE OF ONE MIND.

·       Both beasts, the sea beast of Revelation 13 and the scarlet beast of Revelation 17, have 10 horns. Those ten horns connote A UNIFIED KINGDOM HELD BY BOTH BEASTS FOR 42 MONTHS, the ONE HOUR SEASON.

·       Many Adventists have confused the sea beast with the scarlet beast she rides upon. That has been a great mistake. The scarlet beast hates the whore, Rev. 17:16, and burns her. Rome does not hate nor burn herself! But that would be the foolish logic to the thinking of some Adventists on the scarlet robed whore of Revelation 17, which is also the sea beast of Revelation 13, and the little horn beast of Daniel 7 and 11.

·       Immediately after that ONE HOUR (42 MONTH SEASON OF TIME), the scarlet beast that has supported the sea beast for its own selfish reasons—for world control of the New World Order, destroys the whore and burns her, Revelation 17:16.

·       The sea beast thus comes to her end, and this end is also specified in Daniel 7 and Daniel chapter 11.

·       Then for a very short time, the 8th king, which is of the seven, Satan, will personate the second coming of Christ. That personation will include his appearing to the believers of the various major seven religions of the world as their revered prophet—eg. Satan will appear to Christians as Jesus; he will appear to the atheists as Lord Maitreya, he will appear to Islamics as Mohammed etc., etc.

 

There have been many great minds from the time Revelation 17:12 was written who have not been able to solve the riddle of the ONE HOUR. I was not able to solve the riddle of the ONE HOUR. God showed me what becomes a self-evident, empirical answer to the riddle once the answer is revealed.

 

Please don’t make the great mistake many Adventists make by thinking that Ellen White’s words “time no longer” means all time at the end-time. She was speaking expressly of prophetic (day for a year) time. The Bible mentions 42 months AFTER the wound is healed, Rev. 13:1-5 in contest. The Bible mentions five months. It mentions 10 days. And it mentions ONE HOUR. All these references to time in the New Testament cannot be discounted by concluding they mean NOTHING because there is “time no longer,” for that was not Ellen White’s intent.

 

By the way, Doug Batchelor violates Ellen White’s statement that prophetic (day for a year) time ended in 1844. He explains the “one hour” of Revelation 17:12 as being 15 days as reckoned by day for a year prophetic time. That is a NO NO! What that is tantamount to saying is that the Sunday Law tramping down of the host (the saints) will last only 15 days! That would be nice, but that is one of the biggest peace and safety lies every uttered by a professing SDA leader!
