The Emergence Of Michael
fter describing the serial wars between the King of
the North (US/NATO/EC) and the King of the South
(Islamic/Arab/Africa) that bring the world to the edge of extinction, the
prophet Daniel tells us "At that time shall Michael stand up" to
intervene in world events (Daniel 12:1).
The great Archangel's appearance is said to occur when
"there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a
nation even to that same time," (Daniel 12:1), and he is brought back into
the conflict after a period of inactivity. Since we have previously
demonstrated that Michael is the "restrainer" spoken of in
II Thessalonians 2 who is to "be taken out of the way" (II
Thessalonians 2:7), we now have a timeline with which to project his
Michael is at war with the dragon in the book of
Revelation, and this occurs when Lucifer is at the peak of
his/her power. At the fourth trumpet, we see an angel "saying with a loud
voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth...."
(Revelation 8:13). Synchronize this event with the war in heaven in
Revelation 12, where we see "there was war in heaven: Michael and his
angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not...and the great dragon was cast out.....And I heard a
loud voice saying in heaven...Woe to the inhabiters of the earth
and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath,
for he knoweth that he hath but a short time." (Revelation 12:12).
This would indicate that Michael will "stand up" at the
end of the 4th trumpet, and the opening of the bottomless pit when,
after Lucifer is cast out of heaven, "I saw a star fall from
heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit"
(Revelation 9:1). As the Nephilim angels that have been bound since the
time of the flood are released, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds will
have total power on the earth -- "and they worshiped the dragon which gave
power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying Who is like
unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" (Revelation 13:4).
The worship of the dragon is related to the healing of
the deadly wound -- the first trumpet wherein fire falls from
heaven. But that sequence will have to be addressed in another communique.
