To The Pure…

Friday, September 20th, 2013

Psalm 12:6  The words of the LORD  are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times. NKJV

I marvel at the impact one Scripture can have in our lives.  Encapsulated in a few words are the wisdom and understanding we all need to carry on with our lives.  I believe each of the aspiring overcomers, the remnant, the elect, want to walk in purity of intent.  Purity is determined by Divine Intent.  If Our Heavenly Father says it’s pure, it is certainly pure.

When Our Heavenly Father speaks to you, you can be sure HIS Divine Intent is behind those words.  The problem arises when we make assumptions outside the Word spoken to us.  Throughout Scripture, we read stories about men and women who are given a Word, add there own commentary to it, then fall into a ditch.  The ditch is part of the corrective process in learning to understand the importance to be led by THE SPIRIT, not just an occasional “consult”.  We must trust the fact that all things work together for them that Love Christ during our time in the ditch.  Failure is part of the training regimen.  It provides perspective when success or fruitfulness arrives.  Observing how not to operate provides perspective on proper execution of your calling.

We do not know what impact or implications the Second Census will have on the big picture.  Hopefully we will receive revelation and be able to observe the fruitfulness of the seeds planted.  I do expect to see fruit and in several varieties.  Those who gave extra coins displayed Love toward those who were in need.  Those in need did not let pride keep them from participating.  My assistant displayed exacting discipline in assuring all coins were properly accounted.  My job was to complete the task as given, to cross the finish line.

Our Heavenly Father selected a subset of the aspiring overcomers to participate, not unlike Gideon’s 300, the 12 Disciples, or the 153 fish.  Inclusion or exclusion from this Census did not change your gifts or your calling.  It did not establish a club, elite organization, or exalt any individual.  Those who participated simply responded to Our Heavenly Father’s Divine Intent.  As a witness or confirmation, in HIS great Grace and Mercy, Our Heavenly Father chose a number as a confirmation that HIS Hand was in this Census.  To be open about it, this was comforting to me.  I didn’t select my childhood address of 532, my parents did.  Our Heavenly Father encouraged me when this number ended up as the “official” tally at the lawful endpoint of the Census.

As we move toward purity of intent, the purification process is a requirement.  The dross must be removed.  In Psalm 12:6, we are given the formula.  Silver represents redemption.  To be acceptable as pure, it must go through the furnace (trials and testing) seven times. The number 76 is the factor bringing a person from Cursed Time (414) to Blessed Time (490): 414 + 76 = 490.  Thus the process of becoming pure is associated with 532 (7×76).

If we are to “carry” the Word of THE LORD as one of the Elect, we must do so in a pure fashion.  It must be above reproach and must be done with Love as the primary intent.  As we are purified, we will see the intent behind all of creation.  We will receive wisdom from Above and with wisdom, understanding.  We will be able to minister with pure hearts, without any idols.  One of most subtle idols is money.  The moment that money is included in an act, men’s hearts are revealed.  Conducting a Census without a coin would have been unlawful (See 2 Samuel 24).  It appears that this Second Census included a theme of purification of the heart:

Titus 1:15  To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.

How important is it to be purified?  Our Heavenly Father spoke the following Scripture to me while on an airplane headed to Chicago in 1987 on a business trip:

Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.

It is still on HIS Mind and it is still on my mind.  Think about it.

By The Numbers

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

An email from a Beloved Sister:

Good morning to everyone at Servias Ministries,
I thought you might enjoy the following in light of the post at the blog detailing how you watched and counted as the coins arrived.  I will apologize in advance for not writing down a date and time.
I, too, had been wondering about the total number of coins. I try to use the time set aside for routine chores for extra prayer and meditating on the word.  One day, as I was thinking about the census and coins, and wiping down a shower door I felt an urge to write "500" with my finger.  I did so, finished, and promptly forgot about it.  It was sometime toward the conclusion of the "End the Famine" prayer campaign but cannot be sure of any more details about timing.  However, I was not at all surprised when the final count came in at 532!
Of course, now I am annoyed with myself for not making a notation of the date and time. I fully understand why Stephen went back to retrieve his receipt with the "216" printed on it. 🙂 Let’s just say that I’m a slow learner who often requires lessons given from the "left hand" and who also has to "chew the cud" for a very long time before coming to a decision.
I do not know if this will be "the" year of fulfillment of the fall feast days, but I understand that Stephen’s collected studies on the Book of Deuteronomy, Dr. Speckhart’s sharing of the revelation of what rest is and how it is entered, the intercessors in Minnesota and your census have all converged in an important way. I know those things have significance for me personally, but I believe there are more good things in store for those who are watching.
I started singing the old song I remember from VBS  "Give me Oil in my Lamp" as the end of the prayer campaign approached.  When I looked online for the lyrics I found a couple of verses that I don’t remember learning but which seem appropriate:

The Non-Quantum State of Love

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

If you have been reading Dr. Speckhart’s Book (Quantum and Non-Quantum States of The Lord Jesus Christ available at or watching our broadcasts on Ustream discussing the book with him, you have been exposed to the quantum and non-quantum states.  Yes, this can get complex… but let me provide some simple truths that are contained in the book:

Non-Quantum state precedes the Quantum state.  Divine Intent precedes the manifestation and work associated with that manifestation.  Our Heavenly Father intended to create, then HE created.  HE established a plan then set it into motion (work, energy, etc.).

Divine Intent is Love.  There are no opposites to Love.  There is no resistance in the Non-Quantum.  However, there is resistance found in the Quantum state:  good/bad, attract/repel, up/down, etc.  We think of these relationships as “opposites”.  Our mind wants to polarize everything and cannot grasp a situation where there is no polarity.  That is a core issue with understanding “non-quantum”.  That also relates to the reality that Love has no opposites.  A lower level of love (conditional love) has opposites, but Agape Love (unconditional) has no opposite.  The Creator has no true opposition to HIS creation.  Any opposition we experience was also created by HIM and can be removed by HIM.  The created is not greater than the Creator.

We were originated in the Non-Quantum state as part of HIS Divine Intent.  Where can we find this in Scripture?  Ponder:

Jeremiah 1:5 ​​“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;

​​Before you were born I sanctified you;

​​I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Our Heavenly Father confirmed the existence of Jeremiah before he was formed in the womb.  He was part of THE PLAN just as you and I are part of THE PLAN.  As we seek HIM, HE will reveal HIS Divine Intent to us:

Proverbs 1:23 Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

“Turn at my rebuke” is wisdom.  We must be correctable and teachable to receive HIS Spirit.  HE will then make HIS words known to us, which is HIS Divine Intent.  I believe this book was written by Intent for this particular time in history.  Now is the time that we should understand the deeper aspects of HIM.  For us to tap into HIS Divine Intent, we must “turn at HIS rebuke”.  We must lay aside our previous assumptions and conclusions (doctrines) to allow this deeper understanding to come forth.  Will HE allow any of us to operate in a power and authority without first lawfully exposing us to source of that power?  We are not to be ignorant of HIS ways.  HE discloses revelation before HE expects us to walk in the result.  That is why understanding and knowledge follow wisdom.  Finally, skill comes in order that we can walk in the power and authority in a proper and acceptable fashion, not consuming it on our selfish interests.

As always, if you cannot afford a copy of the book as with the other books we offer, we will give it to you.  Write us at:

Quantitative Easing Continues

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

In my blog yesterday, I summarized all the challenges at hand.  The U.S. economy is not in good shape.  Is it surprising to anyone that the Federal Reserve has decided to continue Quantitative Easing (aka money printing)?

Is Housing in recovery as they would have you believe?

How is Household Income looking?

What about families receiving food stamps?

23,116,928 to 20,618,000: Households on Food Stamps Now Outnumber All Households in Northeast U.S.


I present this information to provide you with perspective about the lack of truth being disseminated in the Media.  There is so much deception out there, it can be a challenge to see what is actually the state of the U.S. economy which also affects the rest of the global economy.  You can appreciate why the Kings of the East are working rapidly to disconnect from the U.S. Dollar.  Their dollar holding are declining in purchasing power rapidly and they don’t want to be left holding the bag.

We are in no better shape than the time just prior to the 2008 Financial Meltdown event, probably worse.  What does that mean to the average person?  It means that you could end up somehow losing what little wealth you have when the next crisis demands payment by “somebody”.  It could be a “bail-in” of banks that takes a portion of your money and converts it to worthless bank stock.  It could be the government forcing you to hold government bonds in your retirement account.  The list goes on.  When things start getting bad, politicians like to start a war.  This time, it did not work in Syria.  I hope that nobody comes up with an event that would draw us into war again.

What are we to do?  We must seek Wisdom from Above.  We must gain understanding.  We must be rooted and grounded in Love so that we don’t respond in fear.  In tough times, people look to those who are connected with Our Heavenly Father.  Other times, they hardly give you the time of day.  That’s okay.  Love does not demand attention.  Be sensitive to what your hear from Our Heavenly Father.  It is HE who will deliver you from famine and chaos, not your elected official.

A Truth We Are Counting On

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

1Jo 4:8  He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

If there is ever a time we need to dwell and meditate on this Scripture, it is now.  I have written many economic blogs and the future of the current system looks bleak.  However, Our Heavenly Father’s Divine Intent supersedes anything man can build and destroy.  The Creator of the universe is not moved by man’s attempt to replace HIM.  Mankind has been allowed to pursue the current path for an undisclosed period of time.  At some point there will be a day of reconciling the “books”.  Men will be separated into two groups:

Dan 12:10  "Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

Notice that those with wisdom shall be purified, made white, and refined.  Love has a plan.  We are the plan.  We must trust Our Heavenly Father.  We are counting on the fact that “God is love”.  Otherwise, we’re all “toast”.  We must have that as a core belief in order to withstand the chaos ahead.  We put our trust in the fact that Our Heavenly Father loves us and will sustain us through all that lies ahead.  The degree of our revelation will determine the peace we have as coming events unfold.  Love has no fear:

1Jo 4:18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

The level of your revelation of Love will determine how much fear grips your heart and causes torment in your life.  Fear provides you a perspective of your lack of the revelation of Love.  My desire is to see you perfected in Love.  It is my own desire to walk in perfect Love.  How can you walk in Love without pursuing it?  Love is a great treasure above all else.  You can take Love to Heaven for it is inseparable from your life, it is your only enduring treasure.  All other things will pass away.  Thankfully, Love never fails.

Wisdom is the ability to receive instruction and correction.  Hence wisdom will promote the revelation of the one characteristic we are counting on from Our Heavenly Father- Love!  Perfect Love is the endgame.

Perilous Times

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

There are so many economic issues out there, one must summarize them to keep perspective:

Massive accumulation of debt at the Federal level

An ever- expanding Fed balance sheet with no realistic exit plan- Tapering Bond purchases could send the economy into a deeper contraction

The Real Estate sector has not recovered

No resolution to unfunded liabilities/entitlement programs- they are thought to be untouchable and they are growing

Record disability & food stamp recipients- the numbers are huge and growing

Record low labor force participation rate-  the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has caused employers to cease hiring full-time employees and discouraged workers are removed from the unemployment numbers to paint a better picture

Stressed states/municipalities- expect more bankruptcies and curtailment of services, increase in fees

Five-fold increase in federal student loan debt- if you can’t get a job, go back to school.  The costs have skyrocketed

A surge in margin debt- Investors are leveraging up in an attempt to generate income, the risky way.

Foreigners selling our debt at a steady pace-  Foreigners have become net sellers of U.S. debt.  They don’t trust us

Backwardation in the gold market- People don’t want to wait for their physical gold, they don’t trust the future ability to deliver gold

Increasing homeless population- Los Angeles has over 50,000 homeless.  Other cities are seeing increases as well

Inflation is running higher than reported.  Simply go out to eat and see what you are paying for the privilege.  Do you remember when $3.50 gasoline was on the news?

The “morality” index is pushing to an all time low.  The family structure is being redefined by Hollywood.  The theme is total dysfunction.  Sex, crime, lies, and deception are all themes that are now promoted to the populace.  One of Denver’s biggest economic boosts is the marijuana industry.  Drug stores are now on every corner.  If they didn’t see the pharmaceutical business increasing, they would not spend the money in expansion.  Fast food and many grocery items contain so many chemicals that our bodies are now overloaded with toxins.  People living in farming communities are being exposed to pesticides that are now promoting cancer and other diseases at an alarming rate.  It’s like the use of chemical weapons at a slow rate of exposure.

Our Heavenly Father designed a process for living life in a blessed manner: First get wisdom, then understanding, then knowledge, then skill.  The above list is long and undistinguished because people skipped wisdom and understanding.  They simply viewed knowledge and skill as the key to success.  Without wisdom and understanding, you will create an environment destined to fail.  Wisdom comes from Above.  Understanding follows.  There will be a great “reset” because these current systems in place will crumble soon.  Our redemption draweth nigh!

532: Promoting Unity

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

When Our Heavenly Father led us to call forth the Second Census, we did so with very few details.  Over the last 42 years, HE has called me to respond to HIS Word many times.  When I did, the result was successful.  When I didn’t, the result was often ugly.  I had to learn to become an “Amen” person.  So be it.  Yes, LORD.  When I was a young man, I thought I was indestructible and knew what was best.  Our Heavenly Father patiently guided me through the tests and trials, allowing me to see who knows best.  Obviously, it was not me.

Acknowledging HIS ways are higher than my ways was a step in the right direction.  Becoming teachable and correctible were critical to my maturity as a son.  Concerning new activities: Instead of doing something until HE prevented me from proceeding, I have learned and continue to learn to do nothing until I hear HIM.  Our goal should be to respond to HIS Word when called upon and not commit to fruitless activities that prevent our availability to HIS specific direction.  I am “wired” to be a doer, ask my wife.  “Doing nothing” takes discipline.  However, Our Heavenly Father placed that attribute in me for my calling of “service” to mankind.  When another Board Member of Servias called me and Our Heavenly Father had told him that I should conduct this Census, my wife and I inquired of HIM.  I wasn’t looking take on an activity of this nature but Our Heavenly Father wanted to establish this Census by two or three witnesses.  Had HE told just me, then there might be a question of intent, especially when we are dealing with money.  Anytime there is a monetary aspect to an activity, the level of scrutiny dramatically increases.  This is why Servias Ministries was willing to provide as many of the ransom coins as needed… even all of them.  I no longer have a reluctance to open the checkbook when Our Heavenly Father assigns me a task.

Once HE confirmed to us that a Second Census was at hand, we asked the question, “How long?”.  HE told us the end date was the Day of Atonement.  I had to look up the date.  I did not realize until yesterday that this is the earliest day of our calendar that this feast day could occur, a “coincidence” indeed.

Why a silver coin?  We needed to be lawful according to Scripture.

What did we do with each coin?  No, we didn’t throw them into a coin bag.  We purchased coin sleeves to fit in 3 ring binders.  Each coin and a piece of paper with the name of the person was placed in a coin sleeve.  Each person was registered on our server.  Additionally, each person was registered in an internal file we keep for financial accounting.  My assistant had her hands full.


Each sleeve contained 20 slots, the number of redemption, how appropriate.

What was our Census target?  We had no clue.  Our Heavenly Father is the only One Who knew.  I knew we would have at least four respond: Both Board Members and our wives, but that was it.  When we registered 49 and 50, I was excited.  144,153, 300 were all hopeful numbers.  At 414 (cursed time), I was hoping for at least one more registration, as you can imagine.  I had discovered that Stephen Jones’ First Census concluded with 490.  That would be a good number.  We were at 487 and then “nothing”, and found out that there had been a challenge filed in the Divine Court concerning the Census.  We inquired of Our Heavenly Father and successfully responded to the challenge.  Suddenly, 3 more registered and we were at 490 with seven days left.  I would have called it “good” then.  Nonetheless, we had time left and I pondered what the number would be.  510 looked good with “51” being Divine Revelation.  At sundown on the Day of Atonement, four of us checked the registration and witnessed the total:

Census Final Totals

I have already covered some of the meanings of 532.

The foundation of Solomon’s temple was laid 440 years after the Jordan crossing.

44 is tied to Isaiah 22:22  The Key of David, which I believe is Love.  This is consistent in that the “Assistance Offered” are people who out of Love for the brethren gave additional coins to cover the ransom for others.

94 is associated with “the proud humbled”.  It was important that those without means not let pride keep them from registering.  We all have been humbled at one time or another.

657 is the total of all people who have thus far registered at since inception.  This number refers to 1 Chronicles 12:16, the growth of David’s army.

Why did Our Heavenly Father assign me to head up this Census?  HE had tested me previously with a gold coin I was to carry with me for an undisclosed amount of time and found out later it was to be used in establishing a covenant with the wealth of China.  See:  I was faithful with the one gold coin so HE could assign me to a greater task.  My willingness to respond to HIS Word qualified me.  If I had not responded, HE would have used someone else.

This Census has many facets of revelation connected with it.  First and foremost it is about Love.  Cheerful givers have no issue with paying a ransom.  Secondly, it is about unity.  The one thing that prevented the children of Israel from entering into the Promised Land was lack of unity with Our Heavenly Father.  They were divided.  That lack of unity brought forth 38 1/2 hears of wandering in the wilderness.  Their unbelief and lack of trust in Our Heavenly Father prevented them from the blessings of obedience.  Our Heavenly Father requires us to act in faith.  Registering was an act of faith.

What will we do with the Census coins?  I have received no instruction at this time.  We will oversee this “treasury” until Our Heavenly Father reveals the next step.  This is no different than me carrying a gold coin everywhere I went until finally instructed to give to the man in Toronto.  When I received the coin, Toronto was not even on my “radar”.  As this all unfolds, I am hopeful we will all see HIS Plan come together in HIS timing, of course.

What’s Next?

Monday, September 16th, 2013

The purpose of the Second Census was to count the people in relation to inheritance.  This was just previous to entering the Promised Land.  In the Book of Joshua, the people arrived on the 10th day of the first month, a Passover event.  Originally, they were suppose to arrive on the 10th day of the seventh month, a Tabernacles event, thus they spent 38 1/2 years in the wilderness because of their unbelief, being tried and tested.

The Remnant is called to pave the way for all of creation to enter into HIS rest.  It is appropriate for this Census to end on this particular Day of Atonement.  In terms of the Gregorian calendar, the earliest date on which Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) can fall is September 14, as happened in 1899 and happened again in this year, 2013.  The Jewish community views this as the Holiest day of the year.  It is also tied to the deliverance in the Book of Esther (Yom Ke-Purim).  At my first Tabernacles conference in 1996, I was unexpectedly asked to speak and I had just completed an exhaustive study of the Book of Esther thus I covered the story of Purim.  At the time, I knew of no connection to Tabernacles.

If there is anything about the aspiring overcomers, they desire to enter the fullness as early as possible.  As indicated above, this is the earliest date we could enter the Promised Land.  Before conquering the land, all of the males had to be circumcised and wait three days.  What happened then in the physical is now to occur in the spirit.  This is why I wrote “The Circumcised Heart of Love”.  To conquer the inhabitants in the land (the world), it must be accomplished by Love, the unconditional kind.

Today’s Online Bible Study

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

At 3 PM Central Daylight Time we will have our next Bible Study live on the Internet. Servias Ministries offers this to allow our brothers and sisters around the world to pursue the most important characteristic of Our Heavenly Father with us. HIS Love is the primary motivation in which all of creation is framed. All aspects of understanding the depth of Scripture require us to view revelation from a standpoint of Love.

Notify your friends of our Bible Study and give them an opportunity to join us. As the Revelation of Love expands our the globe, people’s lives will be transformed.

This week we will continue our study that follows Dr. Speckhart’s new book: "Quantum and Non-Quantum States of the Lord Jesus Christ" and he will be with us for this broadcast and we plan to begin the discussion in Chapter 12 .

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

The Second Census has concluded.  The total registration for this Census was 532.  In reviewing earlier writings proclaiming and explaining the Census, I discovered that on May 3rd I wrote a blog about two dreams my wife had.  The blog was titled “411:Further Information about the Census”. (The original blog: The dreams:

1st Dream

On the morning of May 1st, the first day of the Census, my wife had a prophetic dream.  In the dream we were at a large gathering and there were many booths set up.  She could see many people but could not see their faces clearly.  She saw me talking to this very tall, large, muscular man who towered above me.  It was clearly an angel.  I came over to her with this pill I received from the man.  It was a large, clear pill containing an iridescent gel.  She immediately commented “another pill to add to our regimen of supplements!”  I sternly replied “Just take the pill!” (End of Dream)  I was reminded of Martin Paulat’s comments back in the 1990’s about his blood in his veins becoming “congealed light”.  His blood had transformed into light and was flowing and glowing throughout his body.


2nd Dream

Yesterday, May 2nd, my wife had a second dream.  She had been awaken at 5:32, went back to sleep, and had the dream.  Once again there were indescribable people and she was given the Word “Acts” and the numbers “one to ten”.  Then she was strongly and emphatically given the word “thoroughly” .  She woke up.  We inquired of Our Heavenly Father about the dream and were given the reference: Luke 13:20  And again He said, “To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”  Acts Chapters 1 through 10 provide a detailed account: from the preparation of disciples to the preaching to the Gentiles.  This was the essence of the mandate to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel”.  The remnant is the lump that spread the Gospel to the whole world until it is all “leavened”.


My wife is not a “numbers” person so when she specifically mentions a number in a prophetic sense, I pay close attention.  Previous to the second dream, Our Heavenly Father had her focus on the time, it was 5:32.  This number had special meaning to me since it was the house number where I spent my childhood on Fairchild Drive.  532 is the Paschal Lamb cycle: 7 x 76 = 532 (Spiritual Perfection x cleansing).  From the Edict of Cyrus (Isaiah 45:03) to the birth of Jesus was 532 years.  See:  The purpose of cleansing is putting away sin and corruption.  Much suffering takes place during the cleansing process as the heart is circumcised.

Little did I realize the impact of this number on the Census.  This is a another confirmation and witness of the Divine Intent for this Second Census.  Now that the Second Census is complete, the stage is set for the next manifestation on earth.  Our Heavenly Father has yet to disclose the impact and fullness of this Census.  We will see how all of this unfolds.  I conferred with Stephen Jones last night since he was led to do the First Census twenty years ago.  The registration of the First Census was 490.  The current registration was increased by 42.  The number “42” denotes “Arrival” in Scripture.  As I have written in past blogs about this Census, “Inheritance” is the theme of the Second Census, entering into the Promised Land.  The Children of Israel moved 41 times in the wilderness.  Their 42nd move was into the Promised Land.  Additionally, In Matthew Chapter 1:

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David [are] fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon [are] fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ [are] fourteen generations.

“Until the Christ” are 42 generations.  “Christ” means “the anointed”.  Is the “arrival” of the Tabernacles anointing (the pill) now at hand?

By necessity, we had to file all of the Census coins into two books.  The books weigh as much as stone tablets I assure you.  We will retain the Census coins until Our Heavenly Father discloses to us what action to take with these coins.

I woke up this morning at 4:11 to write this report.  As is my custom, I ask Our Heavenly Father to guide me to any relevant Scripture to include.  If you consider the dreams and the facts above, you can appreciate where HE sent me this morning:

Daniel 12:1 "At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands [watch] over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, [Even] to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.

2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.

3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

4 "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."

5 Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank.

6 And [one] said to the man clothed in linen, who [was] above the waters of the river, "How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders [be]?"

7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who [was] above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that [it shall be] for a time, times, and half [a time]; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these [things] shall be finished.

8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, "My lord, what [shall be] the end of these [things]?"

9 And he said, "Go [your way], Daniel, for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

10 "Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

11 "And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, [there shall be] one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

12 "Blessed [is] he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

13 "But you, go [your way] till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days."

“Now is the time.”
