The Time of The END


"*But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even
to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, knowledge
shall be increased."
* Daniel 12:4

Pastor/Evangelist Steven E. Masone

Matthew chapter 20:1-16 Jesus tells the parable of the
householder hiring laborers for his vineyard. He agreed to pay
each a penny a day even though the ones he hired at the 11th hour
would work but a short time for the 11th hour was at sundown,
6pm to us. The first hour (our 6 am)...thus was 'first light' for the
Hebrews and called the"day"... the 12 hours of light, the sun going down into darkness in the 11th hour.

Jesus said, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is
day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in
the world, I am the light of the world." (John 9:4-5) Jesus tells us
here that when the time comes at the eleventh hour, the night will
come after and..."no man can work."

As long as the Church is working, Jesus is still in the world! But the night cometh! Even among those who claim Christ but are without the baptism of the Holy Ghost and Jesus Name baptism, see the plain and clear prophetic word being fulfilled that this is the generation that shall see the end.

The parable of the laborers is prophetic to this hour! The 16th
verse of Matthew 20 says, "So the last shall be first and the first
last: for many be called but few chosen." The Church in the 11th hour has been foretold of throughout scripture in prophetic type and shadow as to the nature and purpose of her calling, fulfilling the most important ministry not only for a great end-time revival, but for the reconciliation of Israel also.

Israel being the first people called for his namesake were blinded
in part until the fullness of the Gentiles come in. {Rom 11:25} The
11th hour ministry is the laborers in the parable, chosen to
complete the work in the most crucial hour. The 11th hour ministry
works as the sun goes down in the darkest hour.The light shall shine
the brightest since the day of Pentecost...which began in the "third
hour" of the day!

Using "Type and Shadow" of Israel's deliverance from Egypt as the
"Patterned Type" for the Church, we see that before famine befell the house of Jacob, ten of Joseph's brethren tried to kill him, but instead sold him into slavery...thus making God's ordained "Nation" of  twelve tribes...incomplete.

We know Joseph, who was "the eleventh son" was chosen to fulfill a
divine destiny in God's plan of salvation for the house of Jacob/Israel... from whence the promised "seed of the woman" would come: the "Savior" of the world.

*Five examples of Joseph as "Type"* *of 11th hour Church at "The Time Of The End."*

1.The Church was birthed and gifted with "gifts of the Spirit" as
was Joseph, and as prophesied, "the elder must serve the younger" the last shall be first, the first shall be last, and again the 'Ten' was provoked to jealousy and the eleventh Son, went out from among fulfill the divine plan of God for the reconciliation of the :"Natural branches" to the Olive Tree.

2. Joseph, because of his God given anointing found favor with first
Potipher...then Pharaoh. After being falsely accused by Potipher's wife (a Jezebel/Whore Babylon Type) he was again persecuted, but elevated because of his anointing to the 'second in command' of  "Pharaoh."

3. Joseph recognized his brethren when they came to find relief from the "famine" and brought them out of their homeland and they prospered in Egypt until a new Pharaoh " who knew not Joseph" (Type of Anti-Christ) enslaved them until Moses delivered them and led them back to their promised land.

4. Once in that homeland their enemies still surrounded them, desiring to destroy them which eventually they did, but only because of the sin & division of the "House of Israel" when the backsliding Kings of Israel went "a whoring after other gods" and the "Ten" again rebelled against the anointed of God. In this case...the throne of David which is to to be "forever." As the eleventh son of Israel prepared the way for the retaking of the "promised land" with the "Throne of David" established in Jerusalem...we see the "Eleventh Hour Ministry" of the Church re-establishing the Tabernacle of David in this hour.

5. Like Joseph was elevated in Potipher's house, so was the Church after Pentecost until the "Whore" caused persecution and enslavement through Rome. Since that time, the Apostolic doctrine and teachings have been imprisoned and suppressed in "type"... as was Joseph cast in prison until called unto Pharaoh's court where he was used by God to save both Egypt and the house of Israel from destruction. 

While it was "Allied forces" in general that stopped Hitler from annihilating the Jews and destroying the Church, America (The Eagle) who had come from Britain was used by God  to create in her a refuge for religious liberty to be "nourished" and brought a world wide outpouring in 1906 re-birthing Apostolic truth and evangelism. This fulfilled the patterned "type"... and if so, then is also in jeopardy of the Pharaoh "who knows not this Joseph."

* Hypothesis: God is still using anthropomorphic history and events to reveal what has **been sealed until "the time of the end."

(And are the Seven Seals of Revelation representative of the Seal that 'shuts up the words of the book by Daniel?')

Question: Does scripture support the use of types and patterns for doctrine and prophesy?

Answer: Hebrews 8:5* "Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shown to thee in the mount."

So we see that Daniel as a prophetic book has the pattern that shows us "the things to come." And that type and shadow can be found in the events of The Time of the End.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."

Isaiah 28: 10, Ezekiel 43:10, Hebrews 13:8 to name a few of many supportive scriptures.

We see therefore that God has used man's history which is recorded in the bible, to not only 'play out' type and shadows in repeated patterns, but has continued.. and we can see it, if we will re-evaluate our "eschatology" which is tainted with the same error of  "The harlot Babylon" doctrines that Apostolic truth led us out of concerning Godhead Theology, Soteriology, Christology, Pnuematology etc...

* The parable of the 11th hour laborer*

As Jacob birthed the twelve sons as the heads of the twelve tribes
of Israel, we can see a prophetic type in Joseph as the 11th son was
to Jacob, the 11th hour ministry of the Church is to Jesus, our

For Jacob, Joseph was supposed to be"the first". He was the son of
Rachael whom Jacob thought he worked for in the beginning. But Laban deceived him and he got Leah. "Rachael means "Ewe" mother of many sheep. Leah means "doe eyed and haggardly."

Satan has deceived the world with a "Leah" in the Post Apostolic
Age. Just as Joseph's brethren sold him into slavery for his God
anointed calling, we see the 11th hour ministry of the post 1906
outpouring were ridiculed and persecuted emerging as the Joseph who will save the house of his Father.

The mainline religious denominations who had subscribed to
cessationism, rejected the 1906 visitation as of the devil and mocked
it because of it's interracial complexion as well as it's supernatural
gifting(s) like Joseph's.

And again, because of racial hatred and men who were called but not "chosen" to lead the Eleventh Hour/Joseph ministry of the Church...the "brethren" were again divided." So we again see this "microcosm" in repetitive type of the Church not able to cross Jordan into the promised land.( metaphorically)

But now that we find prophetic fulfillment in Israel, as she is poised to be grafted back in ( whether nationalistically or "branches that whosoever will") we see that the Joseph/11th Hour ministry is the final type of the'brother' exiled  because of jealousy and hatred.

As satanic rebellion caused "fratricide" and hatred between Cain and Able, and the children of Abraham, The ten tribes against Judah, and "his own" against The Lord Jesus, we see Ecclesiastes 1:9 perpetuated in "type and shadow" in history over and over and over!

This happened again among us after 1906 when the division of the
brethren occurred over race because of racial hatred and discrimination. Again, we see the type repeated! Now it's over straining at gnats and swallowing camels!

The Church in post-1906 that has been led to all truth and understanding, ( Soteriologically etc..)... like Joseph... if we are that chosen generation, will save the brethren (Jew and Gentile) along with many in Egypt from famine ." Not a famine of bread nor thirst for water but of the hearing of the words of the Lord." Amos 8:11....with another and last great outpouring upon his people who will "will humble themselves and pray, and turn from their wicked ways, and seek my face, then will I hear from heaven and will
heal their land." 2 Chron 7:14

In Joseph, we also see him as a type who is a forerunner to a delivering Moses... a type of Christ as to his second coming. When Joseph and all his brothers were reunited as the house of Jacob, all 12 were together and 12 is God's number of perfect divine government. As the church will be when Israel is grafted back in for Benjamin, (son of the right hand) is a type for Israel and fulfills 12 in the Church's divine destiny as prophesied over and over in scripture and type-shadow.

We finally can see a "Joseph/Gentile Church who loves his estranged brethren, ( Israel) and is and has been in the position ( free world Church) to protect and deliver Israel from it's enemies and preach the Gospel of Jesus to bring them out of spiritual "famine."

Again we will see in the story of the deliverance of Israel from
slavery under the new Pharaoh who is type of Antichrist, and the
supernatural plagues against Egypt are mirrored with Revelation and
Daniel's prophesies. But getting back to Joseph as a 'ministry type',
we can see that the apostasy of the Church was involved with the
political "beast" of that day overcoming the saints through persecution and tribulation of Holy Ghost filled, Jesus named believers who were driven out into exile and into hiding until God provided a place in the wilderness that protected "religious freedom."

Of course a remnant remained for "the gates of hell shall not
prevail against my church." The outpouring in America in 1906 marked the birth of the 11th hour Joseph ministry of the Church and God has stamped his divine mathematical irrefutable hand on these events.

As the apostate theologians from their Greek/Hellenistic
philosophy, and "wise and prudent" humanistic and spirit of
anti-Christ influenced mindset brought us the resurrected false
Babylonian religion disguised as christian dogma, we have muddled our way through tossing out their Soteriology, Christology, Pnuematology, Ecclesiology... but, we like so many good daughters of Rome still cling to their Hermeneutics, Eschatology and so on.

God has spoken to us in his Book of Books using type-shadow
allegory as a way to hide truth as his parables did 
At this hour, when the light of the prophetic sun is setting in
the west, ( where it is light longer!) we can see "the true anti-type" for there is no more shadow cast from the "east" for twilight and night is falling.

With the light of prophesy on top of us as the shadows disappear, we have to ask ourselves if America was the focal point for a second Pentecost in 1906, and America and Britain politically pivotal for Israels re-birth as a nation in 1948, and we are crucial to her safety ( Israel's and NATO) in 2009, where are we in biblical prophesy/historic pattern? Are we both the fulfillment of prophesy for the true and false Church concerning "seat" of power?

Revelation 12: 1-2 "And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; 2: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."

While many interpret this woman as Israel, according to this "type and pattern" ( "The thing that hath been shall be... etc..") appeared
with another wonder in heaven, "a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads." vs 9...
names the dragon as Satan, but the Woman is not specifically named. But her anti-type is! And in progressive "typing" she can be seen throughout scripture and historical 'type'

Rev 17:5 she has a name written "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. The Woman is the Spirit of all False Religions which began in Heaven as the deception Satan used to deceive Heaven's Angels. As the serpent, ("nacash") whisperer of incantations, Satan again using Eve, succeeds in temporarily stealing Adams dominion and authority. While the promised seed
of Christ would come from Eve, the satanic spirit of luciferian lies and' false religion' does also.

Now pre-supposing The Woman of Rev 12 is the Church in Old and New testament, can we see America portrayed as the great eagle with two wings to her place prepared in the wilderness as the Church which also holds in her... Israel's future?... grafting back in according to Rev 12 14-17? This portrays her after the man-child is birthed and gone up to the throne.

In 1906 we see the serpent would be more wroth at this great
revival of spirit filled gentiles that could "be led to all truth and
understanding," and preach the true Gospel to the remnant (Israel) of her seed.( Jewish scholars will never accept "three persons") This
would be the last nail in his' lake of fire' coffin, for he knows his
time is short and if he can destroy the remnant, he can delay his
demise further. ( has he done so in the past?)

Satan also hates the Woman's seed as to the Gentile church and
when the Azusa street revival broke out, the dragon sent a flood after this seed also. The newspapers of the nation began to be the dragon's mouthpiece... "speaking blasphemy" that this outpouring of the Holy Ghost was "devilish gibberish, race mixing, howling and bizarre behaviors.."

This flood of negative press and center stage news was swallowed up 4 days later when the earth opened up her tectonic plates of the San Andreas fault, and the 1906 Great San Franciscan Earthquake which was prophesied of, stole the limelight. The revival continued for many years and sparked the Apostolic movement and the Holy Ghost shed abroad in the hearts of born again believers.


The Forerunner Tandem Pattern

Isaiah 28:9 " For precept must be upon precept, precept upon
precept; line upon line, line upon line here a little and there a

So looking at Joseph as a type of the 11th hour ministry of the
Church, can we see pattern in precept upon precept? Joseph was hated of his brethren for his spiritual 'giftings' and his father's favor
towards him over his brethren.

His name meant {Jehovah is adding} so his Name , which was the only name of all the sons of Jacob to have the name of Jehovah attached to it, gives us a type of Joseph being
persecuted for "His Name's sake."

Because the Holy Ghost revealed Jesus Name baptism to those of
the second Pentecost of 1906, and the Oneness of God, they were called heretics and a cult.

Like Joseph, while a servant in the house of Potipher, he was tempted by the "Jezebel" wife of the householder, and as he fled from her lustful sins, as does the church seek separation from the tide of immorality sweeping America and the world.

Also, Joseph's enslavement became worse because he refused Potifer's wife's sexual advances and as the American and western 'influenced' culture devolves further and further, the Apostolic Church looks more and more 'foolish" to the world, which includes denominational Christendom.

Joseph was the forerunner to Moses who would deliver Israel out of
the hands of the new Pharaoh... who knew not Joseph.( Anti-Christ) Moses shows us that ministry in type heralding the second coming of Jesus Christ. Israel returns to the promised land through the deliverance of Moses/Jesus. 

We can see Joseph as a forerunner to Moses, also in type of John the baptist to Jesus, as Joseph paved the way for Moses who, like Jesus, was in peril of being killed by the King (spirit of anti-Christ) Moses became the son of Pharaoh's daughter and was of humble birth, but robed in royalty like Christ.

Moses could also have shared in earthly rule but fled to the
wilderness for 40 years... this typed against the back drop of Jesus
tempted of Satan after fasting 40 days in his wilderness.

Then we see Moses leading his people through experience after
experience that are pictures in pattern and type and shadow, of Christ and his plan of salvation.

So if we are in the 11th hour of the Church Age, then our message
concerning new birth and victory in the Holy Ghost must also concern reconciliation and "restitution of all things, especially that which is prophesied regarding Israel as the "fullness of the gentiles" comes in at the preaching of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The prophets Elijah and Elisha are another tandem type of a
Joseph/Moses and John/Jesus ministry. Elijah is an 11th Hour type and shadow because we can see he faced the same obstacles as did Joseph without the picture of the 12 tribes as such, but more so in a
prophet/preacher picture. Like Joseph, Elijah faced Jezebel herself,
who we face as the MYSTERY BABYLON ( same spirit) Joseph ran from Potiphers wife as Elijah ran from Jezebel and hid under the Juniper tree in his "prison" until God strengthened and delivered him.

Elijah's most prominent likeness to the 11th hour Church of course
is that before the Elisha/Jesus ministry could appear, ( Elisha thru Jehu destroyed Jezebel) up to Heaven! Again the Elisha/Jesus points to THE SECOND COMING!

Right after Elijah is caught up and leaves his mantle for Elisha, in
2 Kings 1, we see Gods stamp in his divine numbers showing us the 11th hour in both our time and the first Pentecost. 50 sons of the prophets were present to witness Elijah's' rapture and Elisha s' finishing with double portion the prophesy of Elijah, as to Jezebel's destruction.

Which we also see the stamp of '42' of the anti-Christ when the 42
children were torn of the two bears ( two beasts with feet of a bear)
right after the Prophet Elijah (11th Hour ministry church) is caught
up, 2 Kings 2:24. This is beyond coincidence and it has been before us all the time but revelation light shines from above when it is being
fulfilled, and that is why we can see it in this Hour! So is the 42
years from 1906 to 1948... the time of power the beast had?

The two beasts of Revelation, who tare the 42 children represents
Rev 17:16 where God causes the 'ten horns' of the beast, to hate the
Whore, and those people which she 'sitteth upon' who were not 'lovers of the truth and believed a lie'.

So we have seen; Joseph vs Potiphers wife ( Potipher means; contempt) Elijah vs Jezebel, John vs Herodius and the 11th Hour Church vs MYSTERY BABYLON GREAT WHORE.

Precept upon precept upon precept! We see also in 1906 the Zionist
movement 'officially' began to create a Jewish State in Palestine and
WW1 and WW2 were all about the dragon trying to destroy the Olive tree, Israel/Church and not the Geo-political issues history records.

In 1906, beginning in a small Church with an African-American pastor, in a former stable in Los Angeles California, believers were filled with the Baptism of The Holy Ghost, and repentance unto life was granted to them and heaven was rejoicing!

WW1 began in 1914 and ended in 1918 12 years from 1906. Adolf Hitler took official power in 1933, and in the spirit of anti-Christ, attempted to destroy the Jewish race with the "Final Solution," and would then turn on the church had he become victorious, as history now confirms... he practiced satanic worship and had
deep involvement in the occult of MYSTERY BABYLON.

The 11th hour ministry will not be defined as an "organization" that dictates who is in or who is out. Just like the parable of the laborers, the owner of the vineyard will reward as he sees fit. He will also take the talents from those who are not faithful with what he has given them, and he will give it to another. 

Scripture indicates that "No one knows the day nor the hour" The reason is that it is not a date set by God for the second coming, but the "Number "of the Fullness of the Gentiles be fulfilled." And as we are seeing Apostasy happen, there are more souls being lost out of the back door than are coming in the front door!

The good news is that means there will be an end-time revival! The bad news is it will be given to another generation is we don't fulfill 2 Chronicles 7:14 ....and we will just see more of the "repetitive progressive revelation" in further forerunners, types and shadows until it is accomplished!
