We can learn the event-pattern of a Light-line most completely by studying in detail the sequence and nature of events in the Final Redemption Reform-line, the final Light-line in the history of redemption.

This is because a Reform-line is a historical picture of the gospel (see “In the Image”) and the gospel is the name of God (see “The Definition”). The name of God is the Word (Revelation 19:13), the Word of God is His Voice (Psalms 103:20 & Hebrews 12:19) or the sound-image of His thought. “The voice of God echoes down the ages, telling man what is to take place” (The Upward Look, 96.2). Thus, the Reform-line echoes down the ages, telling man what will take place. As for every echo Reform-line of the past, “all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come” (1 Corinthians 10:11). That is, every echo Reform-line is an echo of the Final Redemption Reform-line, a foreshadowing of the Final Redemption Light-line.

In studying the Final Redemption Reform-line, we listen to a “voice” the nuances of which are highlighted in the echo Reform-lines of the past. In viewing the Final Redemption Light-line, we obtain a view the foreshadowings of which can be noted in Light-lines throughout sacred history.

The Final Redemption Light-line 

1. “Light” (compare with P1).

Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people. My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust. Isaiah 51:4-5.

During this period of the Final Redemption Light-line, Daniel 11:40-45 was unsealed to Jeff Pippenger just as most of the prophecies of Daniel had been unsealed to William Miller in the early 19th century. A special increase of Biblical knowledge was experienced from 1989 to 2001 due to the light shed upon the final sequence of events in redemption history as described in the last five verses of Daniel 11. Just as Miller’s increase of knowledge brought to light the First Angel’s Message, so Pippenger’s increase of knowledge presented the Third Angel’s Message with greater force than ever. It is significant that Pippenger came to understand the Reform-line pattern at the beginning of this period (in 1989).

2. “Cornea” (compare with E1)

“The cornea acts as the eye’s outermost lens. It functions like a window that controls and focuses the entry of light into the eye. The cornea contributes between 65-75 percent of the eye’s total focusing power.” (www.nei.nih.gov/health/cornealdisease)

The “Cornea” event of the Final Redemption Light-line was the fall of the Trade Towers on 9/11/2001. The event corresponded with the symbolic coming down of the Revelation 18 Angel. Thus it empowered men’s knowledge of the complete parallel between the Millerite and Final Redemption histories. These two histories were already known to conform to the event-pattern called a Reform-line, a pattern which sheds completely reasonable, inspired light on the final sequence of events in redemption history. Because of the events surrounding 9/11/2001, Reform-line light, especially brilliant in the parallel between Millerite and current history, was focused. 

It should be noted that on 9/11/2001, the end-time Former Rain of the Holy Spirit was poured out. Also, as an immediate result of the events of 9/11, Islam was restrained and light was shed upon what constitutes the Third Woe.

3. “Lens” (takes place within P2)

An eye’s lens provides refinement of focus on objects at various distances from the observer. It adjusts to focus on objects both near and far. The lens is the last element to focus light before it strikes the retina.

A very special Reform-line revelation, which the Lord gave over the weekend of 9/9/11, 9/10/11, and 9/11/11, marked the point in the Final Redemption Light-line at which the light of the Third Angel entered the “lens” of the history. The first public (partial) description of the revelation given on 9/9/11, 9/10/11, and 9/11/11 can be found at the very end of the vlog-series heisemmanuel.gospelpattern.org.

4. “Retina” (marks the end of P2) 

At the retina, light reaches the end of its journey through the eye. There it is translated into chemical and electrical activity which shoots through the optic nerve to the brain.

In the not-so-distant future, the Third Angel’s Message will be proclaimed in the power of the final Midnight Cry (called the “Escape Babylon Movement” in the book Lines of Truth). This movement, warning against worshiping the beast (the Papacy) and his image (the mingling of church and state authority), warning against receiving the beast’s mark in the forehead or in the hand (submitting either ideologically or just practically to the Sunday Law)…this movement will intensify until there is enacted in the U.S. a national Sunday Law. The subsequent persecution will scatter the movement. When the national Sunday Law is enacted in the U.S., the Third Angel’s Message will be translated from light/knowledge into the actual choices being made by Seventh-day Adventists. The flow of their choices will course through a critical period and bring them to the full outpouring of the Latter Rain.

5. “Image” (marks the beginning of P3)

The visual cortex of the brain processes the electrical signals coming from the optic nerve. This part of the brain produces the mental image – that which is called “vision.”

In the full outpouring of the Latter Rain, which will occur at the end of a short period following the enactment of a national Sunday Law in the U.S., the 144,000 will experience a vision which is described most vividly in Revelation 14:2-3. Mrs. White foresaw those experiencing this ultimate vision —

Said the angel, “List ye!” Soon I heard a voice like many musical instruments all sounding in perfect strains, sweet and harmonious. It surpassed any music I had ever heard, seeming to be full of mercy, compassion, and elevating, holy joy. It thrilled through my whole being. Said the angel, “Look ye!” My attention was then turned to the company I had seen, who were mightily shaken. I was shown those whom I had before seen weeping and praying in agony of spirit. The company of guardian angels around them had been doubled, and they were clothed with an armor from their head to their feet. They moved in exact order, like a company of soldiers. Their countenances expressed the severe conflict which they had endured, the agonizing struggle they had passed through. Yet their features, marked with severe internal anguish, now shone with the light and glory of heaven. They had obtained the victory, and it called forth from them the deepest gratitude and holy, sacred joy. Early Writings, 270.4.

Every power of the renewed soul must be put to the stretch that the character may be fashioned after the divine Pattern. When the image of Christ is reflected in the life and character of his followers, the church will be vocal with praise to Him who is glorious in holiness. Signs of the Times, 5/18/1891, par. 7.

6. “Action” (compare with P3)

Once an image is realized in the brain, it is left with the observer to act with respect to his sight. Were I to see that a blind man had walked out into traffic, I would urgently warn him and guide him to safety.

I heard those clothed with the armor speak forth the truth with great power. It had effect. Early Writings, 271.2.

The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close. Here are “the times of refreshing” to which the apostle Peter looked forward when he said: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and He shall send Jesus.” Acts 3:19, 20.

Servants of God, with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration, will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven. By thousands of voices, all over the earth, the warning will be given. Miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed, and signs and wonders will follow the believers. Satan also works, with lying wonders, even bringing down fire from heaven in the sight of men. Revelation 13:13. Thus the inhabitants of the earth will be brought to take their stand.  The Great Controversy, 611-612.

7. “Deadline” (compare with E3)

There always comes a point where it is too late to act with respect to any given view.

The history of redemption will end as Michael stands to close probation (Daniel 12:1). Those who are still spiritually dead, will remain so forever. It will be forever too late to respond to the call given by those who presented the Latter Rain message.

8. “Results” (compare with P4)

Negative consequences are always the eventual result of any failure to act with respect to reality, but rewards follow those who “walk in the light.”

It is written:

And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Daniel 12:1.

And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. Revelation 16:1.

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10.
