Nahum—A prophecy about capital city Modern Nineveh (United States of America) and Assyria (protestant nations), was deciphered by Victor Tasho Houteff, an interpretative prophet to the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church. To better understand this prophecy, read “War News Forecast” tract # 14.

"Yet 40 days and Nineveh will be overthrown." Jonah 3:4

That was the message to ancient Nineveh,

but Nineveh repented and was saved. "Now all these things happened unto them (Israel) for ensamples: and it is written for our admonition upon whom the end of the world are come." 1 Cor. 1:11.

Here this message to modern day Nineveh (America): the message of antitypical Jonah!

The only message to Nineveh (USA--capital city of the world) today is that contained in the truth given in “WAR NEWS FORCAST” Tract # 14. It is a warning to Assyria (English Speaking Protestant nations) that they are not to set up a Church/State Confederacy (New World Order--healing of the deadly wound. Rev.13:3), and it is a warning to Seventh day Adventist (SDA--modern Israel) that they are not to join it.

This is the Loud Cry of the third angel's message: a final warning because Yahushua (Jesus Christ) does not want us to fall into the devil's trap of Isaiah 8:12 "Say ye not a confederacy." It is a similar message to that contained in Revelation 14:9-11 "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name".

Seeing that this is so, be wise virgins and trim your lamps. Great Controversy pg. 393. Get into groups and study tract # 14 "War News Forecast" of Nahum's prophecy. Rev. 7:3 tells us of a special group; the 144,000 servants of God, who are to be sealed from the twelve tribes of Israel. Sister White also admonished us to strive to be in that group. Revelation 14:4 calls these servants virgins, and listen to what Sister White says about them. "The two classes of watchers represent the two classes who profess to be waiting for their Lord. They are called virgins because they profess a pure faith." Ellen G. White, Christ’s Object Lesson, page 407. Therefore, know for sure that the only group of people on earth today professing a pure faith by keeping the commandments of God, and having the Spirit of Prophecy, is the SDA church. We are therefore the ones referred to by the prophet John in the book of Revelation, and also in the parable of the ten virgins. Mathew 25:1-13.

Zechariah 6:1-8 further shows a clear picture, contained in the paradox of the 4th chariot, revealing to

all, that those 144,000 strong bay horses (servants of God with no guile in their mouth, Rev.14:5) from the Seventh Day Adventist church, take another group in the chariot, from the same SDA church with them into the restored theocratic kingdom of Acts 1:6-8.Thus it can be clearly seen that there are two groups saved alive from the Seventh Day Adventist church, not just one. These two groups called Zion and Jerusalem make up the ensign. Isaiah 31:9. Now you know for sure that many more people from the SDA church will make it, and that you have both the opportunity and the blessing to be either one of the 144,000 (Zion), or one with them (Jerusalem). In order to achieve this however, you much make one final decision to repent of your sins, and be covered with the blood sacrifice of Yahushua Ha Mashiach on the doorpost of your heart.

The key here is prayer, fasting and most important repentance, as we continue to prepare the way for Messiah to come, and to await the setting up of that stone kingdom. Daniel 2:45.

Virgins (SDA members)--the reason why Yahushua came into the world as a baby, is purely to save all sinners.

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law.” KJV Gal 4:4. He had a virgin birth so that we may have a spiritual virgin rebirth.

Revelation 14:4 mentioned the sealed ones from Israel (the SDA church) calling us virgins, but in the parable of the ten virgins of Mathew 25:1-13, it is revealed that only five of us were ready to go into the marriage feast. While waiting, even though all fell asleep, the wise ones had the oil of present truth in their lamps, and were able to keep them trimmed and burning. It is now high time for the entire Seventh Day Adventist church population to WAKE UP! There is such a thing known as CIRCADIAN RHYTHM. When it gets dark, you will naturally fall asleep. The world is now at its darkest hour of sin. This is no time to give up. Don’t allow yourself to fall asleep. Don’t allow your oil to run out, because if it does your lamp will go out. The time to get the leaven of sin out of our lives is now. REPENT; keep your lamps trimmed and burning. WATCH!

“Remember, too, that you are candidates for the first fruits, to be either one with (Jerusalem), or one of the 144,000 (Zion), that you are to be without guile in your mouths (Rev. 14:5).” 1 Timely Greetings, No. 4, pg. 27:1.

“And many people shall go and say; Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord; to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways; and we will walk in his paths; for out of Zion (the 144,000) shall go forth the law; and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (those with the 144,000).” Isaiah 2:3 KJV

Here we see that a provision has already been made; one that involves all SDA church members to be either one of or one with the 144,000. Even the little babies can make it along with the 144,000, because since Yahushua came as a baby, it can be clearly seen that He made a provision for everybody. He will save at every stage of physical development from childhood to adulthood.

The wise men brought the most precious things they had to the new born Saviour: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. By doing so, they defined the purpose of His mission. The gold showed that He was a King. The frankincense showed that He was worthy of our worship and praise. And the myrrh for embalming showed that He came to die. In this they set an example for us, that at any age, whether in childhood or adulthood, when we bring a gift to the Saviour, it should be the most precious thing we own. That is, a repentant heart. For those of us who have reached the age of accounting for our own spirituality: age eight, the age at which our parents are no longer responsible for our spiritual decisions. “Your knowledge of these things though, will not benefit you if you do not make a desperate effort to be one of {the 144,000}, or one {of the living saints saved} with the 144,000.”---2 Timely Greetings, No. 4, pg. 15:2.

“Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword; not of a mighty man; and the sword; not of a mean man; shall devour him, but he shall flee from the sword; and his young men shall be discomfited. And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear; and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the Lord; whose fire is in Zion (the 144,000), and his furnace in Jerusalem (those with the 144,000).” Isaiah 31:8-9 JKV

Laodicea, no one in our ranks can boast that they are not guilty of sin. In 1st Timothy 1:15 the Apostle Paul said, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to SAVE SINNERS; of whom I am chief.” This was the reason why He gave His life.

“For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin.” Hebrew 4:15 KJV

“Therefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded.” 1 Peter 2:6 KJV

We see here that our Savior understands our nature and our short comings. He was touched by the feelings of our weaknesses, tempted in all points like we are, yet without sin. The way for our victory over sin has already been made. It is by His death on the cross, and all we have to do is accept the sacrifice.

He is only going to be bruised once, and this is it. So don’t miss the boat. The time to get ready for deliverance, to go into the wedding feast is now. The sacrifice has been made. Accept it, be covered in the blood and be saved.

All those who will be sealed with the Sabbath seal, who will not give up the true day of worship to keep the Pagan day—Sunday, must be sealed in probationary time. “Sunday worship is the abomination that maketh desolate.—a desecration that grieved away God’s presence from the church” Shepherd’s Rod (SR) Tract 3:31:1. It is necessary to remind the brethren that the issue of the enemy is always worship. Therefore, this is the time to know for sure who has your loyalty.

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 KJV

When Yahushua stretched out His hand on the cross, He did so not just for a select group, but for everyone. He did His part to save us, now we must do our part to be saved by Him. YOU CHOOSE.

"Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled; yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling; will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity. Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. (To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.)" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.

All that are found members of the church up to the fulfillment of Ezekiel Nine will either receive the seal and be a part of or with the 144,000, or be left without the seal and fall {die} under the slaughter weapons’ of the ‘five angels’.”---2 Symbolic Code, No.5, pg. 8:1.

“Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Zion (the 144,000); put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem (those with the 144,000), the holy city: for henceforth, there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.” Isaiah 52:1 KJV

When it is over, it’s over; but no one dear say that Yahweh, Jehovah Creator had not done all that He could do to save us. “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” 1John 4:9 KJV

“And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.” 1John 4:14 KJV

Let it not be said too late, too late, but rather, strive to be part of the remnant, given the invitation in Rev 11:12 to “COME UP HITHER” to the long awaited marriage supper of the Lamb. AMEN.
