1798 A.D.


In order to understand why 1798 A.D. you have to understand the meaning of 
1) "Time and times and the dividing of time" and the
2) "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."  
 
Until the 16 century A.D., men believed that the Earth stood still and the sun revolved round the earth. For purpose of computing time, the ancient Hebrews used 360 degree of arc to represent a complete circle of the sun. God gave Israel (I) a solar/lunar calendar to measure the passage of years that is 354 or 384 days is the equivalent of one year. At the end of the nineteenth year the Lunar/Solar that God gave to Israel and man's Solar calendar or the Gregorian will become synchronized. Therefore man choose 360 days to represent the year or a time. This represents a practical method for measuring a time.
 
1) "Time and times and the dividing of time" refers to one time + two times + half time where a time is 360 turns or days. Therefore a total of 360 + (360 x 2) + (360/2) days = 1260 days. But during this time period of 1260 days, the Jubilee Calendar is running therefore each day is translated to be the equivalent of one year. Hence 1260 years. This is the first duration of power that the little horn rules over Europe and persecutes the saints.
 
This information is repeated in prophecy 10 and prophecy 11 of Revelation which are the two prophecies concerning Lucifer and Jesus, and Lucifer and God's people.
 
Prophecy 10 of Revelation which states that "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days." Revelation 12:6; and this repeated in prophecy 11 of Revelation which states that "And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent." Revelation 12:14;
 
2) "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." This appears on the world stage after the ten horns rise to power, because the little horn power uproots three of the ten horn when it appears. The little horn power would start small, but would grow and become stronger than any of the kingdoms represented by the remaining horns. After the Roman empire was broken up by the ten horns, the Church of Rome rose to power and, in so doing, it had to uproot the three nations to consolidate its dominion over a Holy Roman Empire. It destroyed the Vandals, the Ostrogoth and the Heruli, the three horns of Daniel 7:24, for religious and political reasons. This political dispute is call the "Arian Controversy." The Church of Alexandria promoted the fact that ,"Jesus was not co-eternal and not equal with the Father." The Church of Rome countered by saying that this was heresy and blasphemy and started a 200 year controversy. The issue here was theological control; that is who would define Christian doctrine - the Church in Rome or the Church in Alexandria.
 
Constantine called a general council at Nicaea in A.D. 325 to settle the conflict but he could not resolved it. But by A.D. 508, the Church of Rome had enough political support to silence the opposition in Alexandria.

Going back to the late 5th century, the rise of the bishop of Rome to supremacy in Western Europe hinged upon the elimination of the Arian kingdoms which controlled Rome. In A.D. 476 the last of the western Roman emperors had been deposed. This marks the end of the Roman Empire. But the rule of Italy had at that time passed into the hands of an Arian king, Odoacer, a Heculi to whom the activities of the Catholic bishop were subjected. In 493 A.D. Odoacer was overthrown by his conqueror, Theodoric the Ostrogoth, who was also an Arian. Therefore, Catholic supremacy could never be realized while the kingdom of Ostrogoth dominated Rome.

In the year 533 A.D., Justinian, the emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire, later called the Byzantine Empire, for the purpose of settling the religious question, issued a document recognizing the Catholic bishop in Rome as "head of all the Holy Churches." In the following year, he sent an army under the command of Belisarius, which quickly destroyed the Vandal kingdom. Belisarius then turned toward Rome and began the process of driving out the Ostrogoths. Driven from their place, the Ostrogoths, under Witiges, set a siege upon the city in 537, which they maintained an entire year. When a second armed force arrived against them in 538 A.D. they could hold out no longer, and in March of that year they retreated. Although two years later they attempted to regain control of Rome, they were unsuccessful. With their withdrawal from the city in 538 A.D. their power in Rome had ended. When the Arian influence was eliminated, the Church in Rome established herself as the guardian and defender of the Catholic or Universal Christian faith. This resulted in ensuring the pope rules over the whole Christian church and Christian states with absolute power. 

The Church of Rome is the little horn power. Furthermore, ".......and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings." Daniel 7:24: meaning he shall be different from the ten horns of Daniel 7. He shall be a religious power as opposed to a temporal power and he will conquer and destroy three kings or temporal powers - the Vandals the Ostrogoth, and the Heruli.

 

A)The Roman Catholic Church first reigned of power ended in 1798 A.D. when Napoleon's general Berthier captures the pope and keep him as a prisoner until he dies. Thetiming of this event, "judgement was given to the saints of the most High" and "And I saw one of his heads as if had been mortally wounded" is the same timing as when Jesus was given"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." Daniel 7:14; This is also alluded to in the beast which arise from the sea with the wounded head which had been healed, describe in Revelation 13:1-3; And this refers to a future time when sixth head of the composite beast, Babylon will rule the world.
 
Therefore "Christ's pre-advent judgment" are inseparably linked together. This linkage enables students of Bible prophecy to determine the timing of the heavenly event. This is the "the Heaven-Earth-Linkage-Law."
 
Counting backwards from 1798 A.D. 1260 years we come to 538 A.D. This was the year when Belisarius was victorious over the Ostrogoths and the Church of Rome first came into power. This is in years because the Jubilee calendar is running; The Jubilee calendar start at the Exodus in 1437 B.C. and the Jubilee calendar will come to its end in 1994 A.D. after completing 49 x 70 cycles or 3430 years.
 
But this wounding of the little horn is not fatal as this little horn will reign again as the head that was mortally wounded which had been healed of Revelation 13:3; on the beast with seven heads and ten horns. "And I saw one of his heads as if had been mortally wounded and his deadly wound was healed, And all the world marveled and followed the beast," Revelation 13:3; which is in prophecy 11 in book of Revelation of Jesus Christ. Therefore the Bible say that the "little horn" is not dead and that it will reign again as "one of the heads" on the scarlet colored beast with ten horns and seven heads. "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."Daniel 7:11; 
 
And "I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 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." Daniel 7:21-22; This states that in the future, the saints will ultimately inherit the kingdom of God after the 2nd reign of power of the little horn. 
 
The Roman Catholic Church has almost been completely healed during the reign of John Paul II and when it has been fully healed on the 64th day of the Great Tribulation, the 42 months of persecution will begin. 
 
This is during the B) Second reign of the Church of Rome, not as sole power, but as the spokesman of Babylon. This will be the leopard-like composite beast with seven heads and ten horns and who appears to be the scarlet colored beast of Revelation 12:3;  "... and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months." Revelation 13:4; or 1241 days. The seven religious systems which will rule over the whole world through the civil governments. This will be Babylon - Phase I. Then later when Lucifer appears at presumably 891st day and after 148 days or five month, Lucifer will set up the "image to the beast" or Babylon - Phase II. Lucifer will also appoint 10 kings to rule the Earth. These are the ten horns on the heads of the leopard-like composite beast. "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations." Revelation 13:7; Babylon - Phase II is also known as  "the great whore that sitteth upon many waters," or the "great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth." Babylon - Phase II will probably end on the 1305th day and then the composite beast, Babylon - Phase III will reign for the approximate remaining 15 days and wages war on Jesus at His Second Coming up until the 1334th day when the composite beast will be destroyed in the lake of fire. Revelation 19:19-20; After the 42 months, the composite beast will not be interested in waging war on the saints, but will be preparing for war with Jesus and the Father.
 
Finally, this second reign of the church of Rome is in days and not years as the Jubilee calender has already ended in 1994 A.D..
