Scripturally Through the Seven Seals of Time!

The Puzzle

The Seven Seals of Time is a very complex scriptural puzzle that requires a lot of study and inspiration to unlock.  Well Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times in his attempt to reinvent the light bulb, or as the saying goes, "I have not failed.  I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."  ~Thomas Edison  
Well I am sure there about just as many ideas about how the Seven Seals work.  This could be just one of the 10,000 fails or it could be closer to the one, it is up to you to DESIDE.

I marvel sometimes that so many people don't care and have no desire to study or know about the mysteries within the Scriptures.  We have been commanded to do just that. 

Doctrine and Covenants 88:77-81

77 And I give unto you a commandment that you shall teach one another the doctrine of the kingdom.
 78 Teach ye diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that are expedient for you to understand;
 79 Of things both in heaven and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, things which must shortly come to pass; things which are at home, things which are abroad; the wars and the perplexities of the nations, and the judgments which are on the land; and a knowledge also of countries and of kingdoms—
 80That ye may be prepared in all things when I shall send you again to magnify the calling whereunto I have called you, and the mission with which I have commissioned you.
 81Behold, I sent you out to testify and warn the people, and it becometh every man who hath been warned to warn his neighbour.
These Verses can give everyone a leg up on what topics to study when it come to finding out more about the Last Days.  We as members of the Church should be studying the things that are happening at home and broad and the perplexities of the nations.  We also need to gain a knowledge of Countries and of Kingdoms throughout History.  Here is another scripture telling us the exact same thing.

Doctrine and Covenants 93:53
53And, verily I say unto you, that it is my will that you should hasten to translate my scriptures, and to obtain a knowledge of history, and of countries, and of kingdoms, of laws of God and man, and all this for the salvation of Zion. Amen.

Doctrine and Covenants 123:13
13 Therefore, that we should waste and awear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven—

The answers are in the scriptures!  Why else would we have so many scriptures on the seven seals and on time if we were never meant to understand them?!  I have heard many say that they can't wait for the new scriptures to come out in the last days and that they are excited about the mysteries that will be revealed in those sealed books.  Well I've got news for everyone all the mysteries are already in the scriptures we currently have!  It's all there we just don't study what we currently have enough.  When those new scriptures do come forth we will be surprised that they didn't tell us anything that we already couldn't have found out for ourselves from what we now have.

The Pieces

 Doctrine and Covenants 77:7
Q. What are we to understand by the seven aseals with which it was sealed?
A. We are to understand that the first seal contains the things of the first thousand years, and the second also of the second thousand years, and so on until the seventh.

Here we have a solid doctrinal foundation for the Size and Length of the Puzzle, it is 7000 years.  So all the scriptural pieces of time should fit perfectly somewhere within this timeline, and there are a lot of pieces!  

Matthew 24:22 Last days are shorted for the elects sake
Doctrine and Covenants 84:97 The work which shall be cut short in righteousness
Zech 6:1-8 The fifth seal will come out between two mountains of Brass
Leviticus 26:28 Seven Times
Daniel 4:16,23,25,32 Seven Times
Daniel 11:24 A Time
Daniel 7:25 Times Time and Dividing of Time
Daniel 12:5-7 Times Time and a Half
Ezekiel 4:6 Each Day for a Year
Daniel 9:24,26 70 weeks and 62 weeks
Ezekiel 39:9 7 Years
Revelation 8:1 Half Hour
Daniel 7:12 Season and a Time
Revelation 14:7 Hour of Judgement
Revelation 13:5 42 Months 
Revelation 9:4,5 5 Months
Revelation 6:9-11 Little Season
Revelation20:3,7 Satan's Little Season
Daniel 12:11-13 1290 days and 1335 Days

This is a VERY VERY small list how how many scriptures there actually are but I just wanted to show you there are MANY MANY pieces to the 7000 year puzzle.

There are many people who have looked at this puzzle before probably all much smarter than myself so why am I saying this could be correct?  Well many have said the the timeline goes from 4000BC to 3000 AD, and this is an ok assumption but Time would not have began until the Fall of Adam and Eve, and this is when the First Seal Should Start, not at the Creation!  Christ was born in the meridian of time and if that is within the 5th (1AD) seal that is not within the meridian of time.  There is also the little season which is not taken into account at the end of the Millennium where Satan is loosed for a Little Season. 
John in Revelation 8:12-13 hears the Fifth Angel coming to sound his trump. John was on this earth on PATMOS in 96 AD still in the Forth Seal because THREE ANGELS are YET TO SOUND So we know that Christ lived and Died in the 4th Seal.

There are a great many people who understand chapter 8 and 9 of the Book of Revelation to be the events that will happen after the opening of the Seventh Seal.  I agree that those Chapters will take place after the seventh seal.  However I disagree with the interpretation thereof.  In the Kingdom of God there is a very organized system of doing things, first you are given a task or calling.  Then you go and accomplish the thing to which you were commanded.  Then you return and report on what you have done.  So this is what I believe chapters 8 and 9 of the Book of Revelation to be.  These are the angels of the Seven Seals of time (Doctrine and Covenants 77:7) and they are all giving a report of what destruction happened during their seals, at Adam Ondi Ahman, in the Seventh Seal.  Complicated, yes, but please read those chapters and go over some of the historical events in the Palmoni Scrolls and watch them line up perfectly and then make you decision.

Pieces onto the 7000 Year Puzzle Board
With so many pieces and such a big puzzle where should we begin?  Well hopefully somewhere with a good historical and scriptural Starting Point.  Hmmm lets begin at Daniel 12:11-13 and Ezekiel 4:6.  Essentially what one should be looking for is the beginning or ends dates for one of the seals because if you have the date of one you have the date of nearly all of them.  

Ezekiel 4:6
6And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year

This is a Key given to us within the scriptures, that when the Lord tells us 40 days in the scriptures he could be telling us 40 years. and this works in a lot of cases and we are going to use this key Right now to prove the Restoration from the OLD TESTAMENT.

Daniel 12:11-13
11 And from the time that the daily asacrifice shall be taken away, and the babomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
 13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt arest, andbstand in thy lot at the end of the days.

So this gives us an exact starting point and that is when the Daily Sacrifice was taken away!  The Daily Sacrifice refers to the sacrifice for sin that used to be offered in the temples.  Then Christ came to fulfill this law of animal sacrifice, so instead of killing a lamb we partake of emblems during the Sacrament. So the Daily Sacrifice in the form of the sacrament continued even long after Christ and the Apostles were killed.  In fact there is an exact date during the apostasy where the sacrament was done away with and the doctrines of the will of man and grace were confirmed.  This was during the time of Justinian in 530 AD.  The Second Council of Orange is where you can personally look all of this up.  I will also post the drawings with all the historical information on them.  Justinian was able to gain both power over the State and over the Church, Temporal and Spiritual Power also called the Band of Iron and the Band of Brass.
530AD being the date of the Daily Sacrifice taken away and then we add 1290 Days... Now we discussed that in Ezk 4:6 it gave us a key of a Day for a Year, so 1290 days would be 1290 Years

530AD + 1290 Years = 1820 AD Year of the First Vision.

From there we keep going
1820AD + 1335 Years = 3155 AD which as the scriptures say is the time where you will rest and stand in your lot at the end of the days.  This is the end of the Millennium and the end of the little season when satan is loosed for his little season.  This time is when everyone has been judged and is standing in their lot be it CEL TER TEL whichever.  3155AD is the End Date for the Seven Seals!

Typical Seven Seals -  We now know that this idea is flawed however the assumed coming of Christ would have been the year 2000AD

Seal 1       Seal 2     Seal 3    Seal 4          Seal 5        Seal 6      Seal 7                      
4000BC 3000BC 2000Bc 1000Bc Christ 1000AD 2000AD 3000AD End

Palmoni Scrolls Seven Seals
Seal1       Seal2      Seal3               Seal 4             Seal5  Seal 6  Seal 7
3846BC 2845BC 1846BC 846BC Christ 155AD 1155AD (?????) 3155AD

These new seal dates accommodate for both Christ and John being within the Meridian of time as within the Forth Seal.  The reason I didn't put 2155 and the seventh seal date is because we are still missing a few pieces.  

Matthew 24:22 Last days are shorted for the elects sake
Doctrine and Covenants 84:97 The work which shall be cut short in righteousness

These two scriptures as well as the current state of society and the world basically tell us if we had to wait until 2155AD for the Seventh Seal that the current secret combinations that run our Governments and Banking Systems would probably have so much control that there wouldn't even be many elect left to be saved.  So for the elects sake God is going to bring the 7th Seal Forward a Little Season.  This is why Satan gets Loosed again at the end of the Millennium because Satan has been allotted 6000 Years on this earth and time is being taken away from him.  There is an opposition in all things, light and Darkness, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, sacrifice for blessings.  
Now we need a date closer to the millennium that we can work with. Now no man knoweth the day nor the hour of the second coming hahaha but there is nothing that doesn't say we can't know the day or the hour of the Establishment of Zion the New Jerusalem.  

"No man knoweth the day or the hour", is a great scriptural quote that I have heard a lot I'm sure you can imagine why.  However I have a quote that will at least allow us all to have an open mind on the subject.
The Prophet Joseph Smith's own words, from the Saturday afternoon conference address in April 1843, concerning the matter -
"Christ says no man knoweth the day or the hour when the Son of Man cometh. This is a sweeping argument for sectarianism against Latter day ism. Did Christ speak this as a general principle throughout all generations Oh no he spoke in the present tense no man that was then liveing upon the footstool of God knew the day or the hour But he did not say that there was no man throughout all generations that should not know the day or the hour. No for this would be in flat contradiction with other scripture for the prophet says that God will do nothing but what he will reveal unto his Servants the prophets consequently if it is not made known to the Prophets it will not come to pass;

again we find Paul 1st Thesslonians 5th Chapter expressly points out the characters who shall not know the day nor the hour when the Son of Man cometh for says he it will come upon them as theif or unawares. Who are they they are the children of darkness or night. But to the Saints he says yea are not of the night nor of darkness of that that day should come upon you unawares. John the revelator says 14 chap 7th verse that the hour of his judgements is come they are precursers or forerunners of the comeing of Christ. read Matthew 24 Chap and all the Prophets.

He says then shall they see the Sign of the coming of the Son of Man in the clouds of Heaven. How are we to see it? Answer: As the lighting up of the morning or the dawning of the morning cometh from the east and shineth unto the west--So also is the comeing of the Son of Man. The dawning of the Morning makes its appearance in the east and moves along gradualy so also will the comeing of the Son of Man be. it will be small at its first appearance and gradually becomes larger untill every eye shall see it. Shall the Saints understand it Oh yes. Paul says so. Shall the wicked understand Oh no they attribute it to a naturn cause. They will probably suppose it is two great comets comeing in contact with each other

¶ It will be small at first and will grow larger and larger untill it will be all in a blaze so that every eye shall see it. Joseph Smith the Prophet."

I also want to take a quick moment to go over the 5th Seal Date in Zechariah 6:1-8.  Mainly we will focus on verse 1, " And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes and looked, and, behold, there came Four Chariots out from Between Two Mountains, and the Mountains were Mountains of Brass."  The Mountains of Brass are the 2 Greek Empires the same as in Daniels dream of the statue made of many different materials.  The thighs were made of brass and represent the Greece empires.  In Revelation 6 the four horseman White, Red, Black, and Pale are over the first four Seals.  These Horseman then all come out from the past Four seals between the Mountains of Brass ushering in the Fifth Seals.

                                 Fall 22 June 168, BC                Fall of Roman Empire
                                 at the battle of Pydna                28 Aug 1974 Saxon King Odovacar
--------Brass Mountain 1-------------------------------------Brass Mountain 2-------------------

So the First Greek Empire ended with a War and the next Greek Empire Began with the fall of the Roman Empire by Saxon King Odovacar. 

June 22 168BC = 167.529 (june 22 day 193/ 1 year 365)
Aug 28 476AD = 476.658 (aug 28 day 240/ 1 year 365)

167.529 + 476.658 - 1 (there is no year 0) = 643.187 years exactly between the two empires. We want to find out the Between Year.  

643.187/2 = 321.594 years  Let us use the Aug 28 476 date.  476.658 - 321.594 = 155.063
Or around January 23 155AD.  Does 155AD match up with our previous confirmed date for the end of the seventh seal 3155AD?  Perfectly!

Back to the the date of the Establishment of Zion the New Jerusalem.  Lets go to Daniel 4:20-26.  This is the last time that the Church had the Band of Iron and the Band of Brass which is both the temporal and spiritual power and the keys of the first presidency.  When both the Prophet and the King are working together as one in purpose this is also called ZION.  This ended at the battle of Thymbra in 546 BC also noted in Daniel 5:30-31.   
Some of the Keys of Daniel are The Field is the Church of God, The Dew of Heaven is the Word of God, Birds of Heaven are Celestial Men with the Spirit of Christ, Beasts of the Field Terrestrial Man with the Spirit of Christ, Children of Men Telestial Man with the Light of Christ.  The fence of a Field represents the Commandments of God.  Birds make their Abodes in Trees while Fowls make their Nests on the Earth.
Kingdom of God ended in 546 BC and from there we have 7 Times until the next period when the Church has the Band of Iron and Band of Brass as mentioned in Leviticus 26:19 heaven as iron (spiritual power) and your earth as brass (temporal power). 

A Time in the footnotes of Daniel 4:16 suggests it could be a year.  A season is a totally different measurement of time.  Well a Time is a year actually 365.24 days, and with Ezekiel 4:6 with each day as a year a Time is 365.24 Years.  Seven Times then would be 365.242 x 7 = 2556.695 years.  If we add this to April 13th 546BC we come to December 23, 2011.  This is the latest date that the call to Establish the New Jerusalem will go out from the Church.
