In my almost 40-year-long experience as a Christian and Seventh-day Adventist, I’ve never had tendencies to think about setting a time for Christ’s return. However, the recent unprecedented and shocking facts associated with the pandemic, the current united worldwide effort to impose the New World Order (“Global Reset”), and papal attempts to introduce Sunday law based on the false climate change hysteria, persuaded me that the Spirit of God must be now departing from this world and therefore the end is very close.
It is very interesting that the same estimated time of the end of the 6000 years can be established on the basis of not one but many sources including Daniel 12:11-12, the cosmic week theory, the final jubilee year, the final sabbatical year, as well as statements provided by the Spirit of Prophecy. I was very surprised and thrilled after discovering the fact that all these sources seem to agree and lead to the same year 2027.
If the presented here end-time estimation is correct, and the year 2027 is indeed going to be the last one in the 6000-year-long history of our world, then the final sabbatical period of seven years has already started in 2020 when the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the pandemic regarded as the first stage in the plan known as the New World Order and the Great Reset. It will be followed by the digitalization of the world, a cashless society, enforcement of the false day of worship, and persecution of God’s Commandments-keeping people.
Nevertheless, Prof. Walter Veith and Pastor David Gates, are right in suggesting that it shouldn’t be our intention to persuade anyone that we can set the year 2027 as a definite and unquestionable time for Christ’s return. We can’t do this because although the presented here arguments seem to be convincing, the advice from the Spirit of Prophecy prevents us from suggesting a distinct and definite date, or from being certain that the suggested end-time estimation is free from errors. However, on the basis of my in-depth study and prayerful analysis of the Bible, Spirit of Prophecy, and other sources dealing with the same subject, my conscience is prompting me to share a sensible conclusion that it is possible for the final events to take place between years 2024 and 2027. I feel compelled to join other voices supporting the same idea because, if it is true, then it is now the last time to start preparing. If we neglect this warning and the current short time given by God, then at the time of the Sunday law enforcement and outpouring of the Holy Spirit it might be too late!
According to the Spirit of Prophecy, the precise time (the day and hour) of Christ’s return, will be verbally announced by God the Father Himself during the darkest hour of the persecution and shortly before the second advent. This is the best proof that we will not know the exact time (“day and hour”) of Christ’s return until the time of persecution. Nevertheless, after careful and prayerful analysis of this subject, I strongly believe that we are now living so close to the second advent that it is God’s will for all believers to recognise the estimated time of the final events. Such knowledge and the right attitude should become for us a wake-up call, and since we don’t set a precise or definite time for the second advent, we should not be disappointed or lose faith even if the final events will be delayed by a couple of years.
Concerning the timing of the final events, what matters is not whether it is going to be the year 2027 or 2031 but rather the idea that this time the end is truly very close and that this awareness should lead us to the spiritual revival encouraging a total commitment to God and His truth. The closer we get to the above dates the more clearly we should see that this is the time we’ve been waiting for. If the conclusion leading to the year 2027 is right then we can expect that from now on things can only get worse, especially for the commandment-keeping people. The final events, such as the Sunday law enforcement and the latter rain, may take place earlier than we thought leaving us a very short time to prepare for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the time of trouble. If the final events don’t start in 2024 we won’t lose anything but if they do then those of us who are “sleeping” risk losing everything if we don’t wake up now and start redeeming the time every day as never before with constant fervent prayers, seeking the Lord in His Word, and leading other sinners to Christ and His truth!
“Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognise the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it” (TM 507).
“I saw that many were neglecting the preparation so needful, and were looking to the time of ‘refreshing’ and the ‘latter rain’ to fit them to stand in the day of the Lord, and to live in His sight. Oh, how many I saw in the time of trouble without a shelter! They had neglected the needful preparation; therefore they could not receive the refreshing that all must have to fit them to live in the sight of a holy God… I saw that none could share the ‘refreshing’ unless they obtain the victory over every besetment, over pride, selfishness, love of the world, and over every wrong word and action. We should, therefore, be drawing nearer and nearer to the Lord and be earnestly seeking that preparation necessary to enable us to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. Let all remember that God is holy and that none but holy beings can ever dwell in His presence… We should watch and work and pray as though this were the last day that would be granted us. How intensely earnest, then, would be our life. How closely would we follow Jesus in all our words and deeds” (Early Writings, 71).

MOTIVATION & EMPOWERMENT
Assuming that, like me in the past, you also may be addicted to different bad habits, enjoy your long-cultivated unhealthy lifestyle, and that at the same time you may not possess strong will power, I realise that it would be very difficult and in some cases even impossible for you to implement the principles I included in the Health Recovery Plan. For this reason I decided to share with you the following principles that will greatly increase your moral strength and abilities to do what is right:
– Read the most beautiful message about God’s amazing love and gift of salvation: Gospel of freedom >
– Talk with God every day surrendering your life to Him and asking for His Spirit to control your mind, natural tendencies, feelings and emotions. Ask Him to fill you with peace and power to overcome addictions, bad habits and fears. When you ask be positive, believe and thank God for giving you His strength even though you can’t see any results yet. You can thank God in advance because He loves you and because He gave you His word in the Bible and always keeps His promises. In addition, if you ask for God’s blessing He will increase the effectiveness of your improved diet and lifestyle and the use of other approved by Him remedies.
The same principle is given us by Apostle Paul in the Bible: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Thessalonians 5:16-18, NIV); “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7, NIV)
– Read the Bible every day starting from the Gospel of John and other gospels. Before you open the Word of God ask Him for His Spirit to give you understanding and power to implement the truths found there. Remember that the Bible unlike other books does not only talk about power but it is the Word of God and the Power of God’s Spirit who inspired those who wrote it will also influence and empower you if you believe and study it with humble attitude and with all your heart. If you talk with God and read His Word every day the Spirit of God will be gradually changing and empowering you. Just be patient and never give up even if during this process you lose a battle from time to time.
– If you haven’t yet experienced the “new birth” read or listen to the beautiful and powerful small book Steps to Christ by Ellen G. White. You can download it from the internet in written and audio format. Carefully go through every chapter with understanding and faith allowing the truth to lead you through the process of conversion. If you implement that knowledge with true faith, humble attitude and fervent prayers you will be “born from the Spirit”. It means that from that time on God’s Spirit will be dwelling in you giving you more and more strength, peace, joy, wisdom and unselfish love and will help you to cope with your old bad habits. You will still have the old nature and tendencies but from the moment of your conversion you will have access to the power that greatly exceeds your own moral strength and the power of evil tendencies and bad habits. But the final success depends on your willingness to spend time with God every day and on your faith.
Because from my own experience I know and remember how difficult it was, in my case, to change my eating habits and give up on junk food and stimulants using my own pathetic at that time will power, I again recommend to you reading or listening to the book “Steps to Christ“, “Ministry of Healing”, “Great Controversy”, “Desire of Ages“, as well as other excellent books by Ellen G White which will also very effectively encourage you to study the Bible. If you carefully study all the information presented there and follow the steps, you will not only become victorious but will actually experience an inward transformation which will enable you to enjoy your new lifestyle (including healthy unrefined plant-based diet or regular physical activity).
In addition, you can also listen or watch many powerful and inspiring sermons, Bible studies, and personal testimonies available online. Below I included links to my favourite ones:
Paul Volk (video): Many amazing touching experiences. Hope you don’t mind he is translated into German. In the beginning for a few minutes you won’t hear his voice.
Prof Walter Veith (video): Dr. Walter Veith’s incredible conversion story from an atheistic evolutionist to a creationist. Professor Veith is an internationally renowned speaker and author who received training as a Zoologist and Comparative Physiologist at the mainstream University of Cape Town in South Africa. As former evolutionist, and having taught evolution for many years, Professor Veith’s life changing testimony is an amazing witness that touches hearts and minds as he candidly shares his story of God’s leading.
