              The Holy Bible Is The Immutable  Living Word Of The Eternal God. 
The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.

        Here’s the reason, shocking but enlightening truth:  The Bible Is Used To Deceive


We should all be sighing and crying about the sad state of our world.


                Leviticus 26:17 

       And I will set my face against you,          and ye shall be slain before your enemies:

       they that hate you shall reign over you;  and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

       Ezekiel 20:26 ……

       that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.


                                                     A Message From Peter James 


                                     UNDERSTANDING TIME

                           What is happening with your time? 


    Have you noticed that you can no longer work out what has happened to your time?

           Before you know what has happened it is once again the end of the week.

           This is a complete update of an original document which was written several years ago.

           The document is called Shortened Days.   


            Forget all the foolishness that the educated, but foolish evolutionists expound.

            The reality is that there is a great Creator God.

            See Our Video: There is A God In Heaven   


    As we are creatures of time and space, we believe that both of these things have always existed.

            The truth is that they did not.

            Time and space are creations of the Eternal God.


           Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.


           This verse means precisely what it says.

          There was a time when there was nothing, absolutely nothing of the physical universe existed.

           Then at a moment in time called the beginning, God created the entire physical universe.


The Creator God, inhabits eternity, not time and space.

            He inhabits an entirely different dimension.

            Of course we find it almost impossible to grasp such a concept.


            Isaiah 57:15  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity,

    whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place,

    with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble,

    and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.


Rhema: While I  God is in the “high and Holy place”, I at the same time ” with  him (the humble)

also to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones”.

This is what the Holy Spirit does for anyone who is humble enough to obey.


           From Genesis Chapter 1 verse 2 onwards, we are given the details of

           the recreation of the earth.

           We should not assume that at the time of Genesis 1:1, that time, as we know it existed.

           We should not assume that there was such a thing as night, because there was not.


           1 John 1:5  This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you,

       (a) that God is light,

       (b) and in him is no darkness at all.


      Rhema: This is why when you possess the Holy Spirit, you feel at peace and full of Light and understanding.

   You find it easy to understand “spiritual knowledge”.


      The next verse in Genesis tells us that everything was in chaos, and confusion.

      The earth was now covered with water, and everything was obscured by darkness.


           Genesis 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face

   of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.


      God is a God of perfection, and He commands us to be perfect.


           Matthew 5:48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.


            This is what our calling is all about.

            Moving towards perfection can only take place by repentance,

    and the involvement of the Eternal God.

    It is He, who perfects us.

            Humanly it is impossible, but we can, and have to keep changing until the day we die.

            Perfection is as a result of having the perfect God dwelling inside of us.


            Examine in detail any aspect of the creation, in the minutest detail,

    and you will see absolute perfection.


           One of my relatives has seen a smear on a slide of a drop of sea water,

       under a very high powered microscope.

            She saw all sorts of life as seen in bigger forms in the sea.

            There were shells and sea horses etc.  

            I thought I would try to get a photo of this, but the cost is prohibitive.


           Something happened to cause the perfect original creation of Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1,

           to be destroyed, because that is not how it was created.

   The following verse states that the earth was not created empty, waste and confusion

as it states it is in Genesis Chapter verse 1:2.

It is very clear from this, that the original creation, ‘In the beginning’, was perfect.


            Isaiah 45:18  For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens;

            God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it,

            he created it not in vain he formed it to be inhabited:

             I am the LORD; and there is none else.


           We are not told what brought about this destruction,

    but we can be sure that it was sin in one form or another.

    The result of sin is destruction and death, individually, nationally, internationally,

    and universally.

       There are various ideas about what happened, but we will not address this point at this time,

       as it is not relevant to our message.     


       It is worth noting that Order out of Chaos is a completely Satanic concept, and originates

       from disregarding Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1, and proposing that Genesis Chapter 1 verse 2

       is the starting point of creation, then continuing with the “re-creation”,

       which is mentioned in the following verses.

This is typical of most Bible scholars who take verses out of context, and make doctrines out of them.


Rhema: It is well known that “Order Out of Chaos” is on the American $1 Bill in Latin,

with the capstone of the “Evil Eye” above the pyramid, the symbol of the Illuminati,

Freemason Luciferians. Wherever the forces of Satan’s-generated  darkness goes, there is confusion, war and death.


The cycle is a perfect creation, followed by,

Order and Chaos caused by sin, followed by,

A perfect recreation, followed by,

Order and Chaos caused by sin.

This is precisely where we are today, with the addition that we are almost at the end of this cycle

of Order and Chaos, which will ultimately lead to the extinction of man, if the time is not cut short.


           Here are some details of the creation of time.


            From Genesis Chapter 1 verse 3, we then get the details of the recreation of the earth,

            and the organising of our ‘ local’ solar system.


            Genesis 3:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.


           The very first thing that we are told is that the Eternal God commanded light to appear.

           With us, as lost human beings, the very first thing that we need is light,

    to remove the spiritual darkness,

    which has us walking around as blind men, in the middle of the day.     


Isaiah 59:10  We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes:

we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.


           This light had nothing at all to do with the sun.

            Neither was light created at this point, but it is rather that light was shone into the darkness,

           in order to dispel it. 

           The Eternal God allowed His Light to shine on the shapeless,

           chaotic, ruined and water covered earth.


           1 John 1:5  This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you,

           that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.


           We are then introduced to the very first thing which we are told God created.

            It was day and night.


           Genesis 1: 4  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

      Genesis 1: 5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

           And the evening and the morning were the first day.   


            I believe that this verse hides the fact that some tremendous activity was taking place

            in order for day and night to be established.


           The earth  was not the beautiful sphere, which we have seen in pictures from space.


            Genesis 1:2 told us that it was without a shape, therefore like any comet, it would have been tumbling

            around in space, like a drunken man.

    At the same time we are told that it was entirely covered with water.

    As if that was not enough, it was also encased in an envelope of ‘blackness’.      

            I believe that in order for day and night to exist, the earth had to be stabilized,

            and, put the right way up.

            Although still covered with water, its general shape, into the world which we now know,

            would have had to be organized, and regulated.


           The tumbling of the shapeless mass would have had to be replaced by an orderly,

            and very precise rotation, with one revolution every 24 hours, which defines a day.


       We are told precisely what comprises a day, and what comprises a night.

       We are told the order of a day.

       The night precedes the day.


       Christ confirmed the length of day and night.


            John 11:9  Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day?

       If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.


   Rhema: “The light of this world” is the light produced by the sun, not spiritual Light which IS God,

   although God created the sun.


   1 John 1:5  This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light,

   and in him is no darkness at all.


       This means that we have completely changed how days are calculated.

       This is very important.

       It is not a small thing.


       I believe that the Eternal God was quite excited about His creation of Day and Night,

      so much so that He marked off each day, with the statement,


           And the evening and the morning were the first day.


      And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


      All of this was something new in the earth.


       Time was something new, and totally beyond our control.

       It is not subject to clocks, and calendars.

       However man plays games with clocks and calendars, time marches on relentlessly.

       Man, under Satan’s direction, can change the days to start in the middle of the night.

       He can play around with daylight saving time, as much as he likes.  

       He can say that the Sabbath, the very word means seventh, is not really the seventh, but the first.

       It does not affect the universe in the slightest.       

       Time continues marching on precisely as it was created to do,

       and there is absolutely nothing that man can do about it. 


      Rhema:The above is a very important understanding.

   For whatever Man has done in disobedience, by changing times and day,

   My eternal Plan goes on regardless. At some point so Man will understand this when

   he hits the “buffers”, and nearly annihilates himself.


      As we said the Eternal God is a God of order.

      Having made day and night, on the third day,

      He separated some water into clouds in what He called “Heaven”,

      and the rest remained covering the land.   

      He then commanded all the water to be in one place, and He called them ”Seas” and

      He then commanded the land to be in one mass, and He called the land “Earth”.

      This means that there were no continents as we see today,

      neither oceans, a very different world.

      With the soil still damp, He established all the plant life on the ‘Earth’.


     Now we come to another incredible day, the fourth day.


           Genesis 1:14  And God said,

Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;

1) and let them be for signs,

2) and for seasons,

3) and for days,

4) and years:


The Sun, Moon, and Stars were all already in existence,

as we were told in Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1.

What we are told in this verse is that in this re-creation, they were given a specific purpose.

I can tell you that it is possible for stars to shine in the middle of the day, right when the sun

is at its strongest. I have seen the planet Venus brightly shining in the tropics,

with the full sun at 2.00pm.

The stars will still be there in the kingdom of God, but the canvas against which they will be seen

will not be a black one.


All the lights in the heavens were there to be signs to us, not as astrologers promote, but rather

as the Eternal God declares. Unfortunately we have lost the meanings of these signs, but I am sure

that they would have had to do with His Eternal plan for mankind.


1)  Signs


We are in a time when there are, and will increasingly be, signs in the heavens.


Luke 21:11  And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences;

and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Luke 21:25  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;

and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;


For the past few years, and right now there is activity on the sun that is a cause for concern.

In our heavens we see ‘Chemtrails,’ which are poisoning us.

We have satellites and space stations that are not up there for our benefit,

regardless of what you might think.

We have all sorts of missiles raining death from the heavens on innocent people.

We see ourselves running to and fro in massive jet aircraft,

as well as on the land and sea of course.


 Daniel 12:4  But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,

 even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.


We have horrific hurricanes and tornados rampaging from the skies through the entire earth.


Jeremiah 23:19  Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind:

it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.


I am sure that there will be other horrific events taking place in the skies.


2)  Seasons


This is of great importance to us.

There are two aspects to the seasons.

The first aspect is that there are the climatic seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.


This is an overview of what I believe took place on the fourth day, not necessarily in the order

in which it is written.

This would have required that the earth now would be tilted at precisely the correct angle

necessary for it to carry out its ordained function.

This figure, from the vertical is around 23 ½ degrees.

Humanly this might well not be accurate but God did it precisely.

The earth would have to be put at exactly the number of miles from the sun to make life

not only possible, but sustainable. Humanly we say approximately 93 million miles.

The earth would be sent on its circuit around the sun taking approximately 364 ¼ days, making a year.

The sun would govern the length of each day

The moon would govern the length of each month.

All these things would decide the seasons, and other climatic necessities.

The fourth day was a very busy day indeed.


The second aspect which is overlooked is that there are three Feast seasons.

Satan has cleverly hidden these by all sorts of pagan festivities world wide.

It is for this reason that we speak strongly against Christmas, Easter, Halloween and any other

pagan festival that you might care to name.

Note: the word festival does not appear in the entire King James bible, but Feast does.

See our document: Easter,

which explains that the resurrection was not on a Sunday morning.


The following verse gives the sequence of the feast seasons of the Eternal.


Deuteronomy 16:16  Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God

in the place which he shall choose; in

1) the feast of unleavened bread, and in    (Spring Feast season)

2) the feast of weeks, and in                    (Between Spring and Autumn Feast seasons) 

3) the feast of tabernacles:                     (Autumn Feast season)    

and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:


Is it not incredible that even if you are not a Christian you know about Satan’s Easter,

Christmas, and Halloween?

The vast majority of people on planet earth, including ‘Christians’,

have absolutely no clue about these feast seasons of the Eternal God.

Let us be very clear about this.




It is also true that on the Seventh day, the Eternal God Blessed the seventh day and sanctified it,

but the fourth day defined all the days.


The Eternal God is so meticulous in what He does.

The fourth day was used to define time as stated above.

The fourth commandment was used to tell us about a period of time established on the fourth day.


It should also be noted that the weekly Sabbath is referred to as a feast.


It is therefore utter nonsense to say that these are ‘Jewish’ days.

There was not even a man in sight, much less a Jew.


It should also be noted that all these days are referred to by the Eternal God as

the feasts of the LORD, and ‘My Feasts’.

As they do not belong to us in the first place, we hardly have authority to change them,

but not that we can change them anyway. We have no access to them.

We can rebel against them, but how can we stop the seasons taking place?


Leviticus 23:1  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 Leviticus 23:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations,

even these are my feasts.

           Leviticus 23:3  Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest,

           an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.


The details of these days are found in Leviticus 23, but that is a separate subject.


The following verses then give further details of how the heavenly bodies were set up

to rule over the night and day and to give us light.


Genesis 1:15  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth:

and it was so.

Genesis 1:16  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,

and the lesser light to rule the night:

he made the stars also.

Genesis 1:17  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

Genesis 1:18  And to rule over the day and over the night,

and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:19  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.


       Time is a temporary thing.

       It will not last forever.


       In the ultimate Kingdom of God, there will be no time.

       Man will move from time to eternity.

       There will be no night.

       There will be no sun.


            Revelation 21:25  And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day:

            or there shall be no night there.


    Revelation 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it:

    for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.


            This understanding of time is important, because

            time was the proof that Christ was who He was.

           There was no other proof.


            Matthew 12:39  But he answered and said unto them,

           An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it,

           but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

    Matthew 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly;

    so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.


    If this did not happen we do not have a saviour.


      Rhema: This proves the false assumptions that to-day is Easter.

      How can you calculated three 12 hour days and three 12 hours nights,

      which is how God has timed Day and night, between Friday Sunset and Sunday early morning,

      by which time Jesus had already left the tomb? It is mathematically impossible!


       We have shown that time was a specific creation.


       Where are we today?


Anyone who has even two working brain cells is fully aware that something is terribly wrong.

Even the controlled media is saying this, and saying that even in ‘nature’ something is wrong.

They are absolutely right.

Something is very wrong.


We are in what the bible calls the last days.

This period of time is referred to as the tribulation, which is escalating every day.

The climax of the Tribulation will last three and one half years.

This will be a period of time like nothing else that has ever happened to the earth

since the flood in the days of Noah.


We need to understand that what will happen in these days, is a direct result of man’s rebellion,

against the most High God.  This time immediately precedes the return of Christ to replace

the kingdoms of this earth with His Kingdom.


 Revelation 11:15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,

The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ;

and he shall reign for ever and ever.


We are told that the time will be so catastrophic that unless these days were literally shortened

that no flesh would be saved alive. This means that absolutely all life would cease to exist.

Even the controlled news media, and certainly on the Internet we are being told

how very precarious our lives are on several fronts, and all at the same time.

It no longer is just a matter of nuclear war.


We are constantly being bombarded with life destroying activities around the clock via,

electronic bombardment from HAARP, Satellites, Mobile phone towers, Power pylons,

lead and other toxic substances, petrol, household cleaners, toxic food, toxic water,

toxic drugs, Chemtrails, and an enormous list of substances and situations designed to kill us.

This will all allow our adversary to carry out his desire to kill us.


 John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

 He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.

 When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


 1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,

 as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:


As the tribulation nears its climax, the Eternal God has to intervene, before all life is destroyed.

But things are so desperate that even before Christ intervenes,

the days have to be literally shortened.


Matthew 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation,

such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Matthew 24:22  And except those days should be shortened,

there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.


The climax of the tribulation is 3.1/2 years.

This is the period of time that the ‘two witnesses’ are giving their witness, in Jerusalem,

    against Anti-Christ and the false prophet.

    This three and a half years refers to the catastrophic climax of the ongoing tribulation

    which we are all already experiencing now.  


Here are the details of the many plagues.

You will see why these tribulation days have to be shortened for any life to survive.

We need to be very clear that the reason for the tribulation is because of our complete

rebellion against the Most High God.


(A) Revelation 8:7

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.


(B) Revelation 8:8  And the second angel sounded,

and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into

the sea: (An object like, for example, a comet from space impacting the earth)

and the third part of the sea became blood;

   Revelation 8:9  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.


(C) Revelation 8:10  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;

(A second object like, for example, a comet from space impacting the earth)


Revelation 8:11  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.


(D) Revelation 8:12  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.


    (E) Revelation 9:1 ¶ And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star

   fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

    Revelation 9:2  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out

of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and

the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

Revelation 9:3  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth:

and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.


Revelation 9:4  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt

the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree;

but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Revelation 9:5  And to them it was given that they should not kill them,

but that they should be tormented five months:

and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he strikes a man.

Revelation 9:6  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it;

and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.


(F) Revelation 9:13 ¶ And the sixth angel sounded,

and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

Revelation 9:14  Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet,

Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

Revelation 9:15  And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for

an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.


Revelation 9:18  By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire,

and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.


Revelation 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses,

and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.


Revelation 11:6  These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days

of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them

to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.


Revelation 16:1  And I heard a great voice out of the temple

saying to the seven angels, Go your ways,

and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.


(G) Revelation 16:2  And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial upon the earth;

and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast,

and upon them which worshipped his image.


(H) Revelation 16:3  And the second angel poured out his vial upon

the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.


(I) Revelation 16:4  And the third angel poured out his vial upon

the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.


(J) Revelation 16:8 ¶ And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon

the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

Revelation 16:9  And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed

the name of God, which hath power over these plagues:

and they repented not to give him glory.


(K) Revelation 16:10  And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast;

and his kingdom was full of darkness;

and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

Revelation 16:11  And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains

and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.


Revelation 16:18  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.

Revelation 16:19  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.


Revelation 16:20  And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Revelation 16:21  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.


1a) a talent of silver weighed about 100 pounds (45 kg)

1b) a talent of gold, 200 pounds (91 kg)

Some of us have seen that hail the size of a golf ball causes havoc.

Hail of either 100 or 200lb would pulverise buildings and anything else in its way.

It is hard to imagine such huge chunks of ice falling as rain.


These events have shown us a period unlike anything else

in the experience of the earth, a total catastrophic nightmare.


It is in order to save life that the days are going to be shortened.


Many find it hard to understand the many symbols in Revelation,

however, this subject is very clear and easy to understand.

Instead of it being a mind exercise, take a moment to imagine that

you are going through these events.

There is the stench of death everywhere.

Because of fornication the people will have their nakedness exposed.

Because of the severity of the famine people will greedily eat their own children.

It is all there in the scriptures if you care to look.


We will all truly want the earth to stop so that we could get off.

That will not be possible.

As we saw the pain will be so great that people will want to die,

but they will be unable to do so.


These dreadful upcoming events are one reason for this Website.

The main purpose is to turn people to God, and to wake them up.

It is our intention to blow the trumpet, and sound the alarm,

and to show us our present true state, and not the one portrayed

by the controlled media, and the churches, whose ministers

have abandoned their flocks to the wolves, whilst they greedily gorge themselves.  


If the world was to turn to God wholesale these events would

not happen, but that will never happen.

As we saw the more that the people are punished the more that they blaspheme. 

Revelation 16:11 quoted above.


If we return to Matthew 24:22, we can see that the days need

to be shortened because of the many other calamities including

the activity of the beast and the false prophet and the two witnesses.


Matthew 24:22  And except those days should be shortened,

there should no flesh be saved:

but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.


It is easy to think that shortened days mean that the number of days will be decreased.

However, Scripture is exceedingly precise about the length of time

that the witnesses will be prophesying give their witness during the tribulation,

right down to the very day.


Revelation 11:3  And I will give power unto my two witnesses,

and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.


This period is referred to as 3.1/2 years,

42 months, and 1260 days, yet we are clearly told that these days

have to be shortened otherwise humanity will not survive.


These two points seem to be contradictory, but we know that the bible does not contradict

itself, so let us look at these verses carefully, and discover how this will happen.


Revelation 8:12  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.


Reading carefully we see two separate, and quite distinct issues.


The first point is that the sun,

moon and stars were darkened by one third.

This is the very opposite of global warming, which is being loudly trumpeted.

It is rather very serious global cooling.


Revelation 8:12 

the third part of the sun was smitten,

the third part of the moon

the third part of the stars with the result that

the third part of them was darkened,


It must be clear that unless this is going to matter it would not be mentioned.

We can appreciate to some small degree what losing one third of the light,

and heat of the sun would be like,

when on a midsummer day in Britain in year 2,000,

we were walking around in sweaters, and still turning on our heating,

as the temperature in some parts was in the 60s.

What impact this would have on agriculture with photosynthesis

I can only guess at. 

I have no idea what impact the darkening of the moon and stars

will have, but it must have some importance otherwise it would not be mentioned.

There are no superfluous words in scripture.


The second point concerns the last part of the verse.


Revelation 8:12  . . . . . . and the day shone not for a third part of it,

and the night likewise.


We are told that:

‘the day did not shine for a third part of it’.

We would therefore expect one third of the day, which is 4 hours to be moved to the night.

Therefore the day would be 8 hours instead of 12 hours

and the night would be 16 hours instead of 12 hours.


There is the conjunction ‘and’ joining another fact to the first one mentioned.


This is not the case at all, because the sentence continues, and the night likewise.

It cannot be added to the day because we just saw that

the day itself was already shortened.

This means that one third of the night also ceases to exist.


There is nowhere for it to go.

One third of the day ceases to exist and

One third of the night ceases to exist.


The end result is that the night is shortened by one third,

and the day is also shortened by one third.


This means that there will be an 8 hour day, and 8 hour night,

instead of a 12 hour day and a 12 hour night.


This will allow the tribulation to last precisely 1260 days, as we are told that it would,

and simultaneously the days would also have been shortened so that all life

would not perish, nothing would have been compromised.

God's word will always prevail.

Our understanding might well under go some changes,

but not one jot or dot will change of what the Eternal God says will happen.

What the Eternal has decreed will stand.


It really has to be our prayer that we have a sense of urgency

and that we are motivated to assist as many as we can,

to understand that we, and they, have to repent and surrender

our lives to God now, rather than go through the nightmare

of the great tribulation even if the days are indeed shortened.


   A Final Aspect

   Now it seems that there is another aspect to the days being shortened.

   As I said at the start many people are saying that they have no idea where the time has gone.

   Neither have I.

   I cannot believe that we are already in March 2008.

   I have no idea what happened to January and February, but it is exactly the same with the weeks.

   It is the Sabbath (Saturday), I have hardly blinked, and it is the Sabbath again.


    It does appear that the Eternal God has also literally speeded up time,

    so that time is literally flying.

    The days have already been shortened, but in a different way.

    I do not understand the mechanics of this, but I think that all of us can relate to this.

    The nearest I can think of it is that we have to remember that we are speaking about

    the Eternal God, who can hold the world in His hand as easily as we can hold a clock.

    You might have seen sometimes for one reason or another a clock speeds up,

    the hands are passing the hours and minutes just as before but much quicker.

   This seems to be the position in which we find ourselves, except that it is reality.


   Our Rhema (Guidance) from the  Eternal God is that we should pray that that time is slowed down

   for us so that we can accomplish all the things that we genuinely need to accomplish,

   This is quite a revelation to us, so we are passing it on for your consideration.   


   Let us be sensible and realistic about this.

   This does not include wasting time by pointless activities, such as watching hours of Tel-Lie-Vision,

           and such things, which you have included to be part of your daily activity.


If you are going to make it you MUST,  Seek first the kingdom of God’.

If you don’t, you won’t make it.

It is as simple as that.


Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;

           and all these things shall be added unto you.


   If you do not do this you will be constantly plagued with emptiness, loneliness, frustration,

          and feelings of uselessness, apathy, and even despair.

          Furthermore you can work yourself into the ground, and still achieve very little.

          One of Satan’s top priorities is to steal your time.

           When it is gone it is gone.

           It is totally irreplaceable.

           When your time is stolen, your life is stolen.

           You life is your time.

           See our document: Thief of Time.   


          The Eternal God must come first in reality.

          You must do what you have been blessed to have been shown.

          There is no other way.

           This way you can be assured that there will come a time

           when you will move out of time and space and into Eternity.


.           The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.

                                   He is the only way of escape.

              We have to be under His Care and Protection.          

                          Salvation by any other name or means,

                                  Simply does not exist.

                             Complete Obedience is required

                                     Praise the Lord.

                                 Come soon Lord Jesus.
