In a Few Words—
      The seven thunders (last-day events) are based on Daniel’s fulfilled prophetic events of the past. In the order of Daniel’s literal time prophecies, the fourth thunder would be:
          The Fourth Thunder  —This is a universal Sunday law, a One World Government Law, with two stages;  1) The fourth thunder is an enactment phase; and  2) the fifth thunder is an enforcement phase. This thirty day, two-phase law, will be used as a time for the nations of the world to decide if they want to join the New World Order. Daniel wrote the prophecy of the abomination of desolation and Jesus placed it as the main crisis (Matt 24:15) during the last-day events of the last generation (Matt 23:36; 24:30, 33, 34.). This law is called the abomination of desolation for good reason, and in reality; there will NOT be a free choice given, —to any nation or individual! Force will be the end result used by the right arm (the U.S.) of the Papacy. Preparation for setting up the Papacy and its image (Universal Sunday Law) will require the liquidation of three nations (and the absorption and reorganization of others).
      For more commentary on the abomination of desolation see the next event, the Fifth Thunder.
What is the Desolation?—
      The world will be so deceived by the events of the anti-Christ that they won’t even see the end coming. The definition of the Strong’s Hebrew word [
H8074] carries with it the meaning: To stun; grow numb; devastate; stupefy. Jesus, still teaching the disciples, taught that “as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matt 24:37-39.  (FS egw)
And the great city was divided into three parts,
and the cities of the nations fell:
and great Babylon came in remembrance before God,
to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Revelation 16:19, 20
And [the merchants of the world] cast dust on their heads,
and cried, weeping and wailing, saying,
Alas, alas, that great city,
wherein were made rich all that had ships
in the sea by reason of her costliness!
for in one hour is she made desolate!

Revelation 18:19

      Knowledge is not wisdom, and in and of itself, —knowledge does not save! Some seek to know these prophecies that they might save themselves, and fail to understand the wisdom of the saving power of Christ who gave the prophecies. Knowing these prophecies alone, without having a personal relationship with their Author, will not save one’s soul. Belief in Jesus as the slain Lamb of God, —saves!
Rev 5:6, 9. Yet, on the other hand, prophecy is given to reveal Jesus and His saving plan of redemption. Rev 1:3. Wisdom is the proper use of knowledge when guided by the Holy Spirit! Prov 9:10; James 3:17.
      Yes! The book of Daniel foretells in detail the formation of image worship in the United States of America (the transgression; Dan 8:13; Rev 13:14), and how it progressively develops into a world-wide universal Sunday law (the abomination; Dan 11:31; 12:11). Daniel shows that it is a destructive sequence of events, which is directed against God’s people (the host) and the Truth they teach from the Plan of redemption in the Heavenly Sanctuary. THIS IS THE LAST GREAT TEST! This test is designed to make the last generation, saint or sinner, choose Who he will worship! Seven warning trumpet judgments will get everyone’s attention! Rev 8:7–11:17.
All must make the decision, Who will they worship?
      The choice is simple.  Will we pay homage to the god who set up the Sun–day as his worship day (the image and mark of the beast; Rev 13)?   OR   Will we worship the Creator who made the seventh-day Sabbath for us (Rev 4:11; 10:6; 14:7; 7:14)? God foresaw that after sin, we would need to receive His Sabbath’s sanctifying blessing (Gen 2:1-3; Ex 20:8-11; Lev 23), and thus receive the seal of His salvation. (Eze 20:12, 20; Rev 7:1-3; 9:4, 5.)

“And the dragon was wroth with the woman,
and went to make war with the remnant of her seed,
which keep the commandments of God,
and have the testimony of Jesus Christ

Revelation 12:17
“Here is the patience of the saints:
here are they that keep the commandments of God,
and the faith of Jesus

Revelation 14:12
“And I fell at his feet to worship him.
And he said unto me, See thou do it not:
I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren
that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God:
for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy

Revelation 19:10
