The Stone, And Obscurity.
Darkness is the obscurity that Satan uses, and will continue to use especially in this final generation all the way to Jesus’s return at the Seventh Trump. Satan uses his children, the Kenites, to push the darkness in this world. Satan’s children being the Kenites, are the ones who use the vessels of control. These vessels are the Four Hidden Dynasties.
The Four Hidden Dynasties that Satan uses via his offspring (Kenites) are Education, Economy, Politics, and Religion.
These four vessels of deception are used as a build up of darkness, and obscurity in people’s minds. This obscurity that builds up in the peoples minds will lead to ultimate deception that Satan will pour out on the sea of people during in the middle of the Five Month Hour of Temptation at the Sixth Trump .
The Five Month Hour of Temptation is when the Four Winds will blow upon the earth, and it is in the middle of that Five Months the Sixth Trump will sound. (see Midst Of The Week Part One and Two of Deepwellbiblestudies.com. )
Lazarus, I believe, is an example of the 144,000 being awoken out of a sleep during the last half of this Hour of Temptation; in other words , the final two and a half months of the Five Month Period(666.)
The Church of Philadelphia(232 Very Elect) during the last half(2 and a half months) of the Five Month Period will be delivered up.
Mark 13:9-11 KJVS
“But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.  And the gospel must first be published among all nations.  But when they shall lead you , and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.”
At that time the Holy Spirit will speak through the final Remnant (Philadelphia,) and what the Holy Spirit speaks through them, will wake those of the Church of Smyrna(144,000) out of Babylon. (To learn more of the Final Remnant that will pass through this Earth Age See Two Ship Study Part One and Part Two.)
The 144,000 will have that darkness removed when they are helped out of obscurity by what the Holy Spirit will say at that time.
During this final generation that started in 1948 the 144,000 servant’s of God will have the seals of God placed in their foreheads, and that sealing ( I believe )started in 1969 at the sounding of the Fifth Trumpet. However they will have that light inside them covered up by a bushel. (Obscurity)
Matthew 5:14-15 KJVS
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
The word Bushel is interesting –
Translation from the Greek is:
Parts of Speech
Of Latin origin; a modius that is certain measure for things dry (the quantity or the utensil): – bushel.
A dry bush?
Satan being the false bush at 666, is opposite of that wonderful burning Bush that spoke to Moses.
The Holy Spirit will remove the dry bush, and the darkness it brings, when it helps the 144,000 .
Daniel 11:33-34 KJVS
“And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.  Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.”
Our true Heavenly Father will remove that obscurity and darkness. The 144,000(Smyrna) can only be holpen by the Holy Spirit, that will work through their brothers and sisters, who are from the Church of Philadelphia.
144,000 will no longer stumble (fall), because that false rock Satan and his flood of deception is moved out of the way of the 144,000; causing them to see clearly.
Continuing in John 11
John 11:34-37 KJVS
“And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.  Jesus wept.  Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!  And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?”
(Jesus Loves those 144,000, that they are predestined to receive all 7 seals.
Only by Jesus can eyes be opened and darkness can be taken away, and people can be brought back to spiritual life.
John 11:38-39 KJVS
“Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.  Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.”
That stone I believe represents Satan when he appears as antichrist in the middle of the 5 month period being removed out of the way. Four days that Lazarus was dead represents the four hidden dynasties that have darkened the 144,000. The four hidden dynasties, slowly takes truth away from the 144,000 all the way up to 666.
Inside the 144,000 is the light of Christ and cannot be squelched by that darkness when it shines after seals are activated during 666.
This is my understanding. Study to show thyself approved.
