The Angry Assyrian – The Fourth Reich Rising

The Angry Assyrian

The Fourth Reich Rising

Genesis 10:8-11, “Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before Yahweh.” 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel (Babylon), Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah,”

Cush was a son of Ham, a son of Noah, so Nimrod is Noah’s great-grandson. Nimrod built his kingdom up in Assyria, and Ninevah became his capital. You see, after the Flood of Noah in Scriptural year 1656, Noah’s family spread out and settled just north of Mesopotamia. From there they spread out even further. Any problem with Nimrod settling in Assyria, none, except that was the land of his cousin, Asshur, Shem’s son. It wasn’t until the 140th year of Peleg, in Scriptural year 1899, that the Tower of Babel (Babylon) incident occurred and the people of the earth were divided by language. Shem was only 339 years old in 1899. So the children of Nimrod and Asshur had about 243 years to intermarry, co-mingle, and assimilate into the people group known as the Assyrians. And as they say in the movies, the rest is history, which is true, but what a history in the making!

With Nimrod’s influence, the Assyrians developed into a warlike people and continually expanded their territory, until the Assyrian Empire dominated the known world from about 705 BCE to 612 BCE. The Assyrians were a mighty force the world had to reckon with for about 1,300 years. Once their empire was crushed by the combined armies of the Babylonians and Medes in 612 BCE, the Assyrian migrations began. After the kingdom was demolished, they first migrated north and west during the rest of the 600s BCE to the southern shores of the Black Sea, between the cities of Paphlagonia and Pontus. After the Persian Empire weakened in the 400s BCE, the Assyrians then migrated to the north shores of the Black Sea and became known as the Scythians. Notice that the nation known as Assyria remains a nation, but its location is moving. Under pressure in Scythia from other peoples moving into that area, the Assyrians (Scythians) began a third migration during the 100s BCE to 400s CE. They traveled north and west again and finally settled in the land known as . . . Germany!! There they became known as the Germani, or “war man” or “warrior” as the Roman generals who fought them called them. They were also recognized as the Teuton tribes in Europe, study your history.

Well folks, who would have guessed that the angry Assyrian would turn out to be from the Germanic peoples! When the Germanic tribes are united, they grow numerically, economically, politically, and militarily powerful and formidable, and have dominated the European scene, with few exceptions, for the last 1,500 years. It was the Germans who invaded the Holy Roman Empire and eventually brought down the Western half in 476 BCE, when the German mercenary Odoacer deposed Emperor Romulus Augustulus. The Holy Roman Empire is in its 7th revival (how biblical!), since the Treaty of Rome in 1957 CE. The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation is in its 4th revival (how apocalyptic!). The Third Reich pretty much wasted Europe and much of the world in World War II, not to mention the Germans started both World War I and II. The Fourth Reich is rising again to dominate the known world, before it is destroyed by the Stone cut out without hands, at Messiah’s second coming. If you doubt Germany is on the rise again, you are asleep. Pinch yourself awake again and then go to www.thetrumpet.com and order their October/November, 2010 issue of The Philadelphia Trumpet magazine. It will give you much more detail on the tribal migrations and it’s a must read if you want to know where the angry Assyrian, er, I mean, where the Anti-messiah, is coming from.

Germany’s economy is growing 4 times faster than America’s, that’s on a par with China. Now Germany is once again forming a professional army, capable of battle outside the borders of Germany. They just changed their constitution, dropping the conscription of soldiers, to guarantee the move toward a professional army. Conscripts have too short of a service term to develop a blitzkrieg professional military force. Yeah, they may end up with fewer troops, but they will know how to kill you quicker. It’s easier on the military budget that way. Germany dominates the EU politically and economically, and soon they will dominate Europe militarily, and eventually they will dominate the world. Watch the explosive interactions between Russia, China, and Germany, keep your good eye on the Vatican’s interactions with all three; I’m sure the Pope is busy doing his religious thing pushing for a one world religion. Oh yeah, don’t forget to keep one eye on the firstborn Ishmaelites, who’s going to take out the firstborn?

There’s a lot of prophecies yet to be fulfilled, but wow, are they unfolding fast! World War III is upon us, but who’s going to start it? A degenerate failing America, a radical nuclear Iran, or a revived blitzkriegin’ Assyria, I mean, Germany? The names may change over the centuries, but the players are the same biblical ones foretold by the ancient prophets. No matter which one starts the last World War, watch for it to spread rapidly to Israel and Jerusalem. Matthew 24:6-7, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Yeshua’s second coming is the only hope of survival for the human race. Micah 5:5-6, “. . . When the Assyrian comes into our land, and when he treads in our palaces, then we will raise against him seven shepherds and eight princely men. 6They shall waste with the sword the land of Assyria, and the land of Nimrod at its entrances; thus He shall deliver us from the Assyrian, when he comes into our land and when he treads within our borders.” Psalm 83:1-8,

“Do not keep silent, O Yahweh!

Do not hold Your peace,

And do not be still, O Mighty One!

2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;

And those who hate You have lifted up their head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,

And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.

4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,

That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent;

They form a confederacy (think UN, EU, G20, NWO, OWO) against You:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites (Muslims, “submitters to god”, Allah, a big fat demon);

Moab and the Hagrites;

7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;

Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria (Germany) also has joined with them;

They have helped the children of Lot.

Selah

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, Selah,

Our Daily Drink – 9-8-2010

Media is not Iraq

As I continue to study the visions in Daniel 8, Yahweh again makes a passage leap off the page and knock me in the head, just so I notice it. In Daniel 8:20, Gabriel is explaining to Daniel, “The ram which you saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Media and Persia.” Ok, that’s not a real deep theological passage, but it does define a present day Islamic nation. The year Daniel received this vision from Yeshua through Gabriel was 548 BCE based on the popularly accepted Ptolemy’s Canon, the third year of Belshazzar, King of Babylon, Daniel’s 58th year in captivity. One popular prophecy seminar speaker calls this Media, Iraq, and Persia, Iran. But it’s not possible for this Media to be Iraq, because ancient Babylon is modern day Iraq and the year Daniel received this vision, while he was a captive servant of Babylon, Media, Persia, and Babylon were all contemporary stand alone nations, though Cyrus II of Persia conquered Media right around the time of Daniel’s vision. Read up a little on ancient Media and you will see that it was in north west and north central Iran, at the south end of the Caspian Sea. That area is included in what is now modern day Iran, because Cyrus II, the ancient Persian king, conquered Media before he conquered Babylon. Daniel was baffled over this vision, but not about who Media and Persia were, for he is the one who interpreted the handwriting on the wall for Belshazzar, the night Belshazzar was killed by Darius the Mede and Cyrus II, the Persian, when they conquered Babylon without a fight on October 29, 539 BCE. The Medes and Persians combined their empires into one. So, a modern translation of Daniel 8:20 might read thus, “The ram which you saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Northwest Iran and Southeast Iran.” Ancient Medo-Persia was one those empires to begin with two leaders, or kings, merging together to become powerful enough to defeat their common enemies, including Babylon. Therefore, our destruction of Iraq in 1990-1991 and 2003-2010 may not have been a fulfillment of prophecy, since the focus of our attack must be against Iran, or Persia, not against Babylon, or Iraq.

Charles Wheeling, my beloved prophecy seminar friend, also calls this ram, Islam, which it does not represent, it only represents the kingdom of Medo-Persia, which part Daniel clearly understood, and which we now understand can only represent Iran today, in the time of the end, to which this prophecy applies, according to Daniel 8:17, “So he came near where I stood, and when he came I was afraid and fell on my face; but he said to me, “Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end.”” Many prophecies have dual fulfillments, if not more, so this prophecy could have applied to the end of ancient Babylon, which Daniel lived to see with his own eyes, as well as it could be referring to our day, the last generation, who will see its complete fulfillment in the end times. What scares me about this Iran scenario is that Ahmadinejad may be succeeded by a “higher horn” that comes up last, one who is even more wicked than he is, hatching sinister plans upon our spiritually dull world.

Shall we peek at Daniel 8:8-12, “Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven. 9And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land. 10And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them. 11He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down. 12Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily sacrifices; and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered.” Lot’s of end timers like to say this little horn comes out of a revived Holy Roman Empire. Let’s set that aside for a moment. This little horn may have had a natural fulfillment in the Greek ruler of Syria, Antiochus IV Epiphanes, in 167 BCE, but we may see an end time fulfillment by seeing this little horn as Islam. Notice it grew toward the south. Islam has conquered all the nations around the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea, and the Persian Gulf. Islam is actually growing, expanding right inside the Glorious Land, Israel. Islam is even prospering inside the Glorious Church of Yeshua, because people are so duped and believe all the hype pushed by Western religious and political leaders. Why do the Israeli police keep Yahweh’s people, including the religious Jews, from performing their daily oblations on an altar on the Temple Mount? Because they are afraid of offending the Muslims and stirring up violence in Jerusalem. Folks, you need to get this in your hearts and minds, there is only one kind of Muslim, the terrorist Muslim. There is no such thing as a conservative, moderate, or radical Muslim. A Muslim is a Muslim is a terrorist Muslim. Muslims worship the demon Allah. Who exults itself against the hosts of heaven and against the Prince of the host, more than Islam? Who casts down and desecrates the PLACE of Yahweh’s sanctuary, the Temple Mount, but Islam? Who has a terrorist army inside Israel that intimidates the Israeli police so much that they keep Jews from daily oblations on the Temple Mount, but Islam? Who casts the truth of Yahweh’s word to the ground more than demonic Islam? Who does all this and daily slaughters Christians around the world and still prospers in every corner of the globe but Islam? The sooner you swallow this bitter pill, the sooner you will understand your present and future trampling. Get used to it, because this is part of Yahweh’s end-time plan, until He takes out the firstborn of Abraham, the Ishmaelites, the Muslims, those who hate Yahweh with a passion and you, His child, with such hatred that you may find your calling is a beheading at the hands of a terrorist, a Muslim. Yahweh commands all you Muslims to repent of your evil religion and sin and turn to your Creator, Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, as your only Savior. If not, bye-bye paradise, there is hope for you only if you turn your trust to Yahweh and His only Son, Yeshua.

Do we dare look at Daniel 8:21-22, “And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece. The large horn that is between its eyes is the first king. 22As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power.” The Hebrew word here for Greece is the name Yavan or Javan, from the son of Japheth, son of Noah, the fair-skinned folks from the Mediterranean coasts and islands, especially Cyprus. It’s clear from history that Alexander the Great’s Greece conquered Persia and was divided into 4 kingdoms, so a natural fulfillment of Daniel 8 has occurred, but what about a spiritual and final complete fulfillment in the end times? I don’t know, but watch the bankrupt modern-day Greece get close to Israel for financial aid and trade. After America and her allies take out Iran, and America collapses financially, politically and morally, watch for Greece and the European Union to step in to become Israel’s allies, if Israel survives the war at all. But that’s another study for another time, which we have briefly looked at before, and apparently may look at again, Yahweh willing.

Happy Yom Teruah, Feast of Trumpets,

LAST CHANCE SHEMITAHS

Summer 6034 = 2009 CE = Jewish 5769

Leviticus 25, “And Yahweh spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, 2“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to Yahweh. 3Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit; 4but in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to Yahweh. You shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. 5What grows of its own accord of your harvest you shall not reap, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine, for it is a year of rest for the land. 6And the sabbath produce of the land shall be food for you: for you, your male and female servants, your hired man, and the stranger who dwells with you, 7for your livestock and the beasts that are in your land—all its produce shall be for food.

8‘And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. 9Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. 10And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. 11That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. 12For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field.

13‘In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession. 14And if you sell anything to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor’s hand, you shall not oppress one another. 15According to the number of years after the Jubilee you shall buy from your neighbor, and according to the number of years of crops he shall sell to you. 16According to the multitude of years you shall increase its price, and according to the fewer number of years you shall diminish its price; for he sells to you according to the number of the years of the crops. 17Therefore you shall not oppress one another, but you shall fear your Mighty One; for I am Yahweh your Mighty One.

18‘So you shall observe My statutes and keep My judgments, and perform them; and you will dwell in the land in safety. 19Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill, and dwell there in safety.

20‘And if you say, “What shall we eat in the seventh year, since we shall not sow nor gather in our produce?” 21Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years. 22And you shall sow in the eighth year, and eat old produce until the ninth year; until its produce comes in, you shall eat of the old harvest.

23‘The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with Me. 24And in all the land of your possession you shall grant redemption of the land.

25‘If one of your brethren becomes poor, and has sold some of his possession, and if his redeeming relative comes to redeem it, then he may redeem what his brother sold. 26Or if the man has no one to redeem it, but he himself becomes able to redeem it, 27then let him count the years since its sale, and restore the remainder to the man to whom he sold it, that he may return to his possession. 28But if he is not able to have it restored to himself, then what was sold shall remain in the hand of him who bought it until the Year of Jubilee; and in the Jubilee it shall be released, and he shall return to his possession.

29‘If a man sells a house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year he may redeem it. 30But if it is not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house in the walled city shall belong permanently to him who bought it, throughout his generations. It shall not be released in the Jubilee. 31However the houses of villages which have no wall around them shall be counted as the fields of the country. They may be redeemed, and they shall be released in the Jubilee. 32Nevertheless the cities of the Levites, and the houses in the cities of their possession, the Levites may redeem at any time. 33And if a man purchases a house from the Levites, then the house that was sold in the city of his possession shall be released in the Jubilee; for the houses in the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel. 34But the field of the common-land of their cities may not be sold, for it is their perpetual possession.

35‘If one of your brethren becomes poor, and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you. 36Take no usury or interest from him; but fear your Mighty One, that your brother may live with you. 37You shall not lend him your money for usury, nor lend him your food at a profit. 38I am Yahweh your Mighty One, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan and to be your Mighty One.

39‘And if one of your brethren who dwells by you becomes poor, and sells himself to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a slave. 40As a hired servant and a sojourner he shall be with you, and shall serve you until the Year of Jubilee. 41And then he shall depart from you—he and his children with him—and shall return to his own family. He shall return to the possession of his fathers. 42For they are My servants, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as slaves. 43You shall not rule over him with rigor, but you shall fear your Mighty One. 44And as for your male and female slaves whom you may have—from the nations that are around you, from them you may buy male and female slaves. 45Moreover you may buy the children of the strangers who dwell among you, and their families who are with you, which they beget in your land; and they shall become your property. 46And you may take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them as a possession; they shall be your permanent slaves. But regarding your brethren, the children of Israel, you shall not rule over one another with rigor.

47‘Now if a sojourner or stranger close to you becomes rich, and one of your brethren who dwells by him becomes poor, and sells himself to the stranger or sojourner close to you, or to a member of the stranger’s family, 48after he is sold he may be redeemed again. One of his brothers may redeem him; 49or his uncle or his uncle’s son may redeem him; or anyone who is near of kin to him in his family may redeem him; or if he is able he may redeem himself. 50Thus he shall reckon with him who bought him: The price of his release shall be according to the number of years, from the year that he was sold to him until the Year of Jubilee; it shall be according to the time of a hired servant for him. 51If there are still many years remaining, according to them he shall repay the price of his redemption from the money with which he was bought. 52And if there remain but a few years until the Year of Jubilee, then he shall reckon with him, and according to his years he shall repay him the price of his redemption. 53He shall be with him as a yearly hired servant, and he shall not rule with rigor over him in your sight. 54And if he is not redeemed in these years, then he shall be released in the Year of Jubilee—he and his children with him. 55For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants whom I brought out of the land of Egypt: I am Yahweh your Mighty One.”

Here’s more thoughts on the 70th Jubilee and the rest years in this cycle. In a 70 Jubilee cycle of 3,430 years (70 X 49 = 3,430), there are 490 rest years, not counting the Jubilee years. If you include the Jubilee years in your rest year count, you get 560 rest years to observe (490 + 70 = 560). These rest years are obligations owed to our Creator, Yahweh. How many rest years do you think the nation of Israel has observed? How many has the nation of America observed in its short 402 year history?

2009 CE is the 5th Sabbath rest year of the 70th Jubilee Cycle; this year is rest year number 488 (or 557, if counting the Jubilee years also). That means we only have two more Sabbath rest years remaining before the 70th Jubilee in 2024 CE. The 6th rest year, number 489, is the year 6041, or 2016 CE, in the 42nd year of the 70th Jubilee Cycle. The 7th rest year, number 490, is the year 6048, or 2023 CE, in the 49th year of the 70th Jubilee Cycle, the year just before the 70th Jubilee in 6049, or 2024 CE. Yahweh gives us, the Israelites, 7 chances to observe mini jubilees in each Jubilee cycle. These rest years are moedim, or rehearsals, Yahweh’s appointed times. They are just as important as the annual 7 feasts of Yahweh. These feasts and appointed times came before the written Torah of Moses, if you care to study the Book, Moses just wrote them down. The rest years are especially important for Israelites in the land to observe. It may be too late for them to observe 2009 CE, but we must get the word to them to observe rest years 6 and 7. The consequences for not observing the rest years historically have been, well, disastrous for Israel. Again, check out the Book.

Only a believing Israel will obey Yahweh and observe His appointed times. I believe Yahweh brought His people back to their Land. There is hope for Israel if they will obey Yahweh and His word. We must have believing brothers and sisters in the Land, willing to look foolish, to observe the coming rest years in 2016 and 2023 and the Jubilee in 2024 CE. If Israel needs a tabernacle or a temple to observe these years, then I encourage them to get on with the construction as soon as possible. They must find Yahweh, grow some faith, dig up their Davidic courage, forget the Muslims and get to work. If the Muslims snivel or kvetch about building on the temple mount, well, the Scriptures are pretty clear about what to do with the pagan inhabitants in Canaan.

The showdown is inevitable. The Ishmaelites may not know why they hate their brethren, the Israelis, but it is because they believe that they have the birthright to the land as the firstborn of Abraham. Only one problem, Yahweh gave the Promised Land to Isaac, not Ishmael. This family feud is about to end in a great bloodbath. Israel surely owes Yahweh some rest years in the Land. Ishmael surely owes Yahweh some rest years in the Land. The bloodshed will need to be cleansed from the land. Whose blood will Yahweh require before cleansing His Land? Personally, I would prefer to see the infidel Muslims wiped off the face of the earth, but Yahweh doesn’t ask me for my preferences. What does Yahweh have to say in His Word?

Ezekiel 39, “And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; 2and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. 3Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand. 4You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken,” says Sovereign Yahweh. 6“And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am Yahweh. 7So I will make My holy name (Yahweh) known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name (Yahweh) anymore. Then the nations shall know that I am Yahweh, the Holy One in Israel. 8Surely it is coming, and it shall be done,” says Sovereign Yahweh. “This is the day of which I have spoken.

9“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years. 10They will not take wood from the field nor cut down any from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; and they will plunder those who plundered them, and pillage those who pillaged them,” says Sovereign Yahweh.

11“It will come to pass in that day that I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea; and it will obstruct travelers, because there they will bury Gog and all his multitude. Therefore they will call it the Valley of Hamon (the multitude of) Gog. 12For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land. 13Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain renown for it on the day that I am glorified,” says Sovereign Yahweh. 14“They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search. 15The search party will pass through the land; and when anyone sees a man’s bone, he shall set up a marker by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog. 16The name of the city will also be Hamonah. Thus they shall cleanse the land.”’

17“And as for you, son of man, thus says Sovereign Yahweh, ‘Speak to every sort of bird and to every beast of the field:

“Assemble yourselves and come;

Gather together from all sides to My sacrificial meal

Which I am sacrificing for you,

A great sacrificial meal on the mountains of Israel,

That you may eat flesh and drink blood.

18 You shall eat the flesh of the mighty,

Drink the blood of the princes of the earth,

Of rams (Muslims) and lambs (believers),

Of goats (westerners) and bulls (Europeans),

All of them fatlings of Bashan (unconquered peoples in the Land, well cared for by Israel).

19 You shall eat fat till you are full,

And drink blood till you are drunk,

At My sacrificial meal

Which I am sacrificing for you.

20 You shall be filled at My table

With horses and riders,

With mighty men

And with all the men of war,” says Sovereign Yahweh.

21“I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and My hand which I have laid on them. 22So the house of Israel shall know that I am Yahweh their Mighty One from that day forward. 23The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I have dealt with them, and hidden My face from them.”’

25“Therefore thus says Sovereign Yahweh: ‘Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name (Yahweh)—26after they have borne their shame, and all their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, when they dwelt safely in their own land and no one made them afraid. 27When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, 28then they shall know that I am Yahweh their Mighty One, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer. 29And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says Sovereign Yahweh.”

Yeah, it’s going to be a bloody mess, but it looks like Israel comes out on top of the graves. The Land of Israel owes rest years to Yahweh. Israel is pre-occupied with self-preservation. Yahweh will fight for Israel again. The Land will be cleansed. There is only enough room in the Land for one people, the 12 tribes of Israel. Do you think that once Israel sees Yahweh face-to-face and is filled with His Holy Spirit that they will honor Yahweh and observe His Shemitah and Jubilee years? Hmmm. That’s a real possibility. I hear the rattling of dry bones. There’s a cool resurrection about to happen on earth.

The Last Chance Jubilee

THE LAST CHANCE JUBILEE

Hello, dear readers. We are in the thirty-fifth year of the 70th Jubilee Cycle since the crossing of the Jordan River by Joshua and the children of Israel in 1406 BCE (the beginning of the 1st Jubilee Cycle). You may have noticed in the news that there are a lot of disturbing events occurring around the world. You and I know we have not seen anything yet. The reason that events are beginning to stack up on each other is that we are coming to the close of Daniel’s time of the end and are fast approaching the end of time, Daniel 8:16-17, “And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, who called, and said, “Gabriel, make this man understand the vision.” 17So he came near where I stood, and when he came I was afraid and fell on my face; but he said to me, “Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end.”” I believe that the 70th Jubilee ties directly to Daniel’s 70th week. I believe this is some of the understanding that Daniel was to seal up until the time of the end per Daniel 12:4, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge (of Daniel’s visions) shall increase.” Did you know about the 70th Jubilee before this time of the end? I didn’t. So which vision is it that we have understanding of now, that we didn’t have before the time of the end? Daniel 9:23-24, “At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:

24 “Seventy weeks (sevens, sevened) are determined

For your people and for your holy city,

To finish the transgression,

To make an end of sins,

To make reconciliation for iniquity,

To bring in everlasting righteousness,

To seal up vision and prophecy,

And to anoint the Most Holy (Place).”

According to Daniel 9:24, seventy of these sevens, or sevened, cycles were decreed in the Heavenly Court. The common understanding of the 70 weeks for the last several millennium has been that the weeks relate to a 7-year Shemitah or Sabbath cycle, of which only one 7-year week remains to be fulfilled. Well prophetically, we can expand our understanding of the sevens to a 49-year Jubilee Cycle, seven sevens is 49, it’s just a larger cycle of sevens. That’s not complicated to grasp is it? So, 70 cycles, or weeks, X 49 years each = 3,430 years. Folks, this super duper grand grace cycle of 3,430 years for the nation is rapidly coming to an end. When? In 2025 CE, when the 70th Jubilee begins (begins in fall of 2024 on 10th day of the 7th month in 2024 CE). People, that’s less than 15 years from now. What you need to let sink down in your soul today is that once the fuse is lit to Daniel’s 70th week, nothing stops the events from progressing until all is fulfilled.

We understand from verse 24 that “your people” and “your holy city” refers to all 12 tribes of the nation of Israel and Jerusalem. Yahweh has given the spiritual nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem 3,430 years of grace to fill up their cup of sin. The phrase “to finish the transgression” means the revolution is being restrained. Who is the Great Restrainer? Ruach ha Kodesh, the Holy Spirit. At the end of the 70 “weeks” the Holy Spirit removes His hand of restraint and allows Daniel’s people and their holy city to rebel against Yahweh one last time, to the uttermost. Make no mistake, the stuff is going to hit the fan. The phrase “to make an end of sins” means that habitual sin and the habitual sinner will be sealed. The word end here is the same word as seal up just a little further down in verse 24. This is just the opposite of the thought in Rev. 7:2-3, “Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Mighty One. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our Mighty One on their foreheads.” Instead, it is the fulfillment of the vision seen in Rev. 13:16-17, “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” This vision continues in Rev. 14:9-11, “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of Yahweh, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.””

The phrase “to make reconciliation for iniquity” means that Yahweh will finalize the expiation for our perverse, evil sinfulness in Yeshua’s blood. In other words, judgment day begins and continues until reconciliation of Yahweh’s people with Yahweh is completed.

The phrase “to bring in everlasting righteousness” means the beginning of the Olam, the eternal Kingdom begins, the Millennial reign of Messiah on earth. The age of sin is over, the age of peace, joy and righteousness begins. Everlasting means the vanishing point, time out of mind. We won’t be watching the clock during the 1,000 years with our Master. Those years will be life beyond our wildest imaginations.

The phrase “to seal up vision and prophecy” means that the oracles of the prophets of old will be fulfilled, finalized, completed. Yahweh is about to wrap up the 6,000 years allotted for man’s rule on this planet. Yeshua has been in the Sanctuary interceding for us for a couple thousand years now, but make no mistake, the King is coming, and He is pissed. Our Melchizedek High Priest is about to lay aside His priestly garments, exit the heavenly Sanctuary, strap His sword to His side, mount His great white steed, and blast His way to Jerusalem, to claim His Kingdom as King of kings and Master of Masters. I would not want to get in His way, would you?

The phrase “and to anoint the Most Holy (Place)” refers to Daniel 8:13-14, during the last “week” of Daniel’s 70 weeks, “Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who was speaking, “How long will the vision be, concerning the daily sacrifices and the transgression of desolation, the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot?” 14And he said to me, “For two thousand three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed.” The cleansing and anointing of the Most Holy Place take place towards the end of the last 7 years of man’s rule, so Yeshua can take up residence in Jerusalem for His 1,000 year reign. Make no mistake, He’s coming to clean house.

Here’s another way to look at the 3,430 years. 490 years is 10 Jubilee cycles. 490 is blessed time for obedient nations. 7 X 490 = 3,430 years. Yahweh has given His nation 7 complete cycles of grace of 490 blessed years each. Were the people of Yahweh always obedient to Him? Uh, no. Did we deserve such grace? Of course not. Did we need such grace? Of course we did and do. Did He have to allow it? No, but He did it. No one will be able to accuse our Father of not being merciful. The cup of sin has to fill to the full, it must become utterly sinful, as Paul speaks of in Romans 7. Is the cup about full? Yeah. Is time about to reach the vanishing point? Yep. Are you ready to meet Him face to face? I certainly hope so.

How do I know all this is about to happen? Ask Ezekiel. He wrote down in Ezekiel 1:1-3, “Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of the Mighty One. 2On the fifth day of the month, which was in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, 3the word of Yahweh came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the River Chebar; and the hand of Yahweh was upon him there.” Does it sound like Ezekiel was inspired by the Holy Spirit when he wrote these few words? Yes, I believe he was. Folks, the “thirtieth year” was the 30th year of the 17th Jubilee Cycle. It didn’t take a genius to figure out the Jubilee cycles, it just took a keeper of the Books with the proper tools. Read my attached expanding article on Ezekiel 1:1-3, to get a little better understanding of what I am writing about.

Yahweh is impressing me to make mention of the fact that His Jubilee cycle calendar is independent of any of man’s calendars. Yahweh instituted this calendar at a point in time when the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River into Canaan, the Promised Land. Yahweh’s calendar is not tied down to any manmade calendar system. We call the year that it began 1407 BCE, but Yahweh just calls it the first Jubilee cycle. Once His Jubilee cycles began, they will continue until He says stop, irregardless of what year we call it. His calendar system is not tied to our understanding of BCE/CE, BC/AD, or any Julian system, or any Egyptian system, or any Babylonian or Assyrian system, and certainly not the Islamic system. But each Jubilee Cycle is tied to the last one and to the next one, very similar to the way the weekly Sabbath cycle is an endless cycle of Saturday Sabbaths, so also the divine Jubilee Cycle could be an endless cycle of Jubilees that just happened to begin in 1407 BCE. The Jubilee Cycle is one of those scarlet threads woven throughout the Scriptures and human history that we are invited to partake of. If we don’t observe the Jubilees, it may hurt Yahweh’s feelings, but it hurts our spiritual life. The whole of the story of redemption is wrapped up in the Jubilee Cycle. It’s all about forgiveness of debts, release, restoration, redemption, liberty, spiritual truths that will outlast human history. Again, we only break ourselves when we ignore Yahweh’s Word in our lives. We may only have one more opportunity to observe this divine appointment before the end of the end of human history. I encourage all of you to focus in on Yahweh’s appointment book a little more than your own.

We have less than 15 years to prepare as Yahweh’s people and holy city to Scripturally observe the last Jubilee before Judgment Day. Will we revolt or submit to our Master and obey one simple command? Think of the 70th Jubilee as the final exam. Will we pass or fail? The 3,430 year countdown is about over. Ding. King Justice is coming. Hebrews 10:26-31, “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28Anyone who has rejected Moses’ Torah dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of Yahweh underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says Yahweh. And again, “Yahweh will judge His people.” 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living Mighty One.”

Fourteen years should be enough time for anyone and any nation to repent of any and all sin. Break our hearts dear Father.

Looking forward to the glory after the mess,

A TRIGGERING EVENT

In my last post, we investigated what we are learning about the significance of 40 days, 40 years, and 40 Jubilees. We will continue with that theme and talk about what was revealed to me within this last week. I read through the book by Franklin Paine, Miracle of Time, from his daughter’s website at www.shiloah.co.uk. A fascinating work, basing his biblical chronology on lunations of the moon, or 354 day Hebrew or biblical years. I read his book in one night and the next day built another 6,000-line spreadsheet of his chronology. Don’t ask me how I do that, but when the anointing is on me, it just flows. What I learned, or re-learned, I should say, is that 40 Jubilee Cycles make up 1,960 years, but tucked inside of those 40 49-year cycles is the actual Jubilee years themselves. So in Yahweh’s reckoning, you must add 1,960 years plus 40 Jubilee years, which equal 2,000 years, or two days, in what I call Kingdom Time. Charles Wheeling and 7th Day Adventists call this Sanctuary time. Dr. Stephen E. Jones calls it legal time. It’s Yahweh’s time scale, or calendar.

That’s great to know, but what is it we’re discovering about our focus on forty? Well, I just watched one of Mr. Wheeling’s old prophecy seminar DVDs again. In it he mentioned he thought that the Persian Gulf War may have been the start of the final seven year countdown, or the fulfillment of Daniel 8:1-8, received by Daniel in 548 BCE. Since we didn’t topple Saddam Hussein or his government in that war, Charles may have changed his mind about that being the triggering event in Daniel’s vision. After what I’ve been learning, we may want to rethink that war again.

Iraq invaded Kuwait on August 2, 1990 CE, which led to the Persian Gulf War in January and February, 1991. America called this little war Operation Desert Storm. I believe it was a triggering event, triggering the final 40 years of extended grace in the wilderness with the apostate church. All you have to do is look at the Church today and see the corpses of churches scattered all over the desert of Christianity. Let me explain as best I can. Yeshua was crucified, buried, resurrected, and ascended to heaven in 30 CE. Forty Jubilee Cycles later, or 1,960 solar years later, brings us to 1990 CE. On my spreadsheets, I state that the church age is over in 1990 CE. Inside those 40 Jubilee Cycles are 40 Jubilee years, so we add 1,960 + 40 Jubilees = 2,000 years in Kingdom Time. Folks, the two days since Messiah’s resurrection are OVER! Yahweh sees and reckons that 2,000 years have elapsed on His calendar system, back in 1990 CE! We should have been raptured by now, right? Yeshua should have returned by now, don’t you think? Isn’t Hosea’s prophecy ever going to come to pass? Hosea 6:2, “After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight.” Wow, Yahweh has promised to complete all His promises, and they must be fulfilled in the third day, the 7th millennium of human history. Notice that Hosea makes it very clear that it will be “AFTER” two days (2,000 years of Kingdom Time). Those 2,000 years have come and gone folks, we are now twenty years into the 40 years of extended grace transition phase of end-time prophecy.

Daniel 8:2-8 will be fulfilled to the letter, we just thought it would happen all at once, but it is apparently being stretched out over much of this 40-years of extended grace transition phase at the time of the end. The Iraq war is now officially over on August 31, 2010 CE, and we did topple Saddam Hussein in the war this time, thus fulfilling another portion of Daniel’s vision, verse 7, “And I saw him confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns (only one, Sadam Hussein, has been broken as of this writing). There was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his hand.” Notice that this war, which we called Operation Iraqi Freedom, lasted almost exactly seven years. That’s about as prophetic as it gets people. So we have taken down one of the ram’s horns, but now we need to go after the higher horn which came up last, Ahmadinejad, Iran, Persia (verse 3). We are poised to do it. So what are we waiting for? The King’s timing, of course. Daniel’s vision will be completely fulfilled. Islam is still in their fasting month of Ramadan. The party may be over on September 9, when Islam begins its next lunar month. Watch world events between sundown September 8, when the Jews celebrate Yom Teruah, Feast of Trumpets, Rosh Hashana, and September 11, when the Muslims will celebrate 9/11. Just like Iraq in 1990, Iran will do something to tick off the Western allies again, so we will attack and smash Iran to the ground. Daniel saw it happen in real spiritual vision 2,557 years ago, hopefully we will live to see it happen in real (super)natural time, live via satellite. And think of it this way, a three-phase stamping of the Ram of Islam. Phase I in 1990 – 1991. Phase II from 2003 – 2010. Phase III from .. – .. Does Yahweh do prophetic things in threes? Hmm. A three-phase siege against the Ram of Islam is a very biblical pattern. Check it out for yourself.

We’ve made it through 20 years of the last 40 years of extended grace in fulfilling the wilderness typology. We will see Judgment Day in 20 years or less. Yahweh has virtually guaranteed it. We are in the middle of a Scriptural pattern that is playing itself out in real life fulfillment in these last days. We are already deep into the seventh millennium: the common era year 2010 CE is the year 6034 on my Ezekiel spreadsheet timeline, the year 6056 on Philip Mauro’s timeline, the year 6084 on Franklin Paine’s timeline. This year should be about 6010 on Michael Rood’s timeline. Make no mistake, any way we look at it, we are overdue for Judgment Day. 2 Peter 3:9, “Yahweh is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” Ask our loving heavenly Father to help us be longsuffering too, but please wrap this human mystery up and let’s get on with everlasting life, the olam, the vanishing point. We must get to the resurrection, our born again experience, to an immortal life. That’s when the Kingdom marriage supper of the King really begins. Who’s ready to offer the toast of wine and unleavened bread at that meal? Who will get the glory for fulfilling all of His promises up to that vanishing point in time? All praise, glory, power, and authority to Yeshua, our King of kings and Master of lords! Even so, come Lord Yeshua.

Please visit our blog site https://ourdailydrink.wordpress.com

A few other points of interest, I continue to update my spreadsheets and am now trying to keep up two (or three) complete versions, not easy. The other day, while studying through Franklin Paine’s work, he was writing about biblical numbers, a fascinating study unto itself. Anyway, he noted a total, 2,601. That number looked really familiar, so I went back to my Ezekiel based spreadsheet, now version 3.5, and sure enough, there is exactly 2,601 years from the thirtieth year of Ezekiel 1:1, to 2009 CE when I discovered that it was the thirtieth year of a Jubilee cycle! Well, 17 X 153 = 2,601. 17 is the number of the resurrection of Messiah, He was raised at the end of Sabbath, just before sundown Saturday, the 17th day of the first month in 30 CE, and of course 153 is the number of the fish caught in “the net”, after His resurrection! Ezekiel’s thirtieth year was also the 30th year of the 17th Jubilee Cycle from the crossing of the Jordan River by Joshua and the children of Israel! Needless to say, I got excited all over again! Thank you Yeshua, that I am on the right path to understanding. It’s a good thing to get reassurance from your Master once in awhile.

Charles Wheeling (www.inbookseast.org) sent out a news brief the other day. I went to the linked article and read about the International Monetary Fund’s proposal for a new world currency, dubbed the bancor, in memory of the economist John Maynard Keynes. The IMF article, titled Reserve Accumulation and International Monetary Stability, is available as a .PDF file from their website www.imf.org. Move over dollar, the bancor is coming with the New World Order. Once we take out Iran and that then totally collapses our economy, look for the bancor soon after in a world bank near you.

Another point to ponder, though I forget where I read it. You’ve heard about the Euphrates River drying up. Well, this comes from the other end. The Persian Gulf salt water is washing upriver in the Hiddekel River (into which runs the Euphrates, Tigris, and Ulai [Karun] Rivers) and killing all river life along the banks. I do not know how far up the river the salt water damage has traveled so far, but I do know that it is an end-time sign. Keep an eye on this area, for this is the area of Basra, Iraq, near where Daniel had his Chapter 8 vision. Anyone feeling birth pangs yet? Tick-tock. It is way past time (I mean it is past midnight prophetically!) to fill your lamp with His anointing oil. Ding! Time to wake up sleepy heads. The Bridegroom is coming!

Blessings over the holidays,

HURRICANE EARL HURLS

For a moment, take your eye off the storms in your life and keep an eye on Hurricane Earl, your good eye. Yeshua told us in Luke 21:11 to take note of the signs of the times, “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” Ok, I can’t see the east coast from here, but you folks that are there, look up and see the hurricane bearing down on you. I’m watching it on the internet hurricane tracker. Did you know that Earl is American slang for vomit? Does that not bring a Scripture to mind? Sure it does, Revelation 3:14-22, “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans (Many believe the end-time church resembles the Laodicean church.) write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Yahweh: 15“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—18I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’”

If you don’t know we are in the end times, please pinch yourself and wake up now. Yahweh needs you. In regards to Hurricane Earl, watch to see who gets hurled on. Yeshua is knocking on your door, and for some of you out east, that may be real loud real soon. Notice our Master’s command, be zealous and repent. Same old message you say. Yeah, right. When Yeshua walked the earth, He gave only one sign to His people Israel, the sign of Jonah, three days and three nights in the tomb, then He rose from the dead to live forever more, bless His holy name, Yahweh! Well, folks, that was the physical fulfillment of the sign of Jonah. So what’s the spiritual sign of Jonah? REPENT!! Same message as Yeshua and John the Baptist. No time like the present to obey Yahweh. Here’s what Jonah said in 3:4b, “Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”” Well, you can replace the city of Nineveh with the name of your favorite city. Fortunately, Nineveh repented, as seen in 3:10, “Then Yahweh saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and Yahweh relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.” We repent, Yahweh relents from bringing disaster on us. Simple process, but difficult for arrogant, hard-hearted folk.

Please note how long Yahweh told Jonah to give the city of Nineveh, forty days. Forty days, forty years, forty Jubilees are very prophetic in the Scriptures. Yahweh has been pressing that fact into my spirit for a couple weeks now. Let me give you a clue. Yeshua was executed in 30 CE. Forty 49-year Jubilee Cycles is 40 X 49 = 1,960 years. Ok, cool, so what? 30 + 1960 = 1990 CE, the end of the Gentile church age. Ok, cool, so what? Well, obviously, Yeshua has not returned yet. Yeah, so what? Well, in Kingdom time, inside of the 1960 physical solar years, Yahweh has woven 40 Jubilee years, so He reckons 1,960 physical human solar years as 1,960 + 40 Jubilees = 2,000 years! Yahweh sees and reckons that 2,000 Kingdom years (2 days per Hosea 6:2 and 2 Peter 3:8) have passed. Cool, so what? Well, obviously, since Yeshua’s ascension in 30 CE, we’ve already passed the 40 days of Jonah’s merciful prophecy. And, obviously, we’ve already passed 40 Jubilees of release since Yeshua’s ascension in 30 CE. So, what’s left? Forty years in the wilderness, our transition to the Kingdom of Yahweh.

Remember, that after forty years tending sheep on the backside of the Midian desert, Moses brought Yahweh’s judgment on Egypt. Forty years out of Egypt and Yahweh brought judgment on Canaan through Joshua and the Israelites. Forty years after Yeshua ascended to heaven, Yahweh destroyed Jerusalem, Judah, and the second Temple with the Assyrian-manned Roman legions in 70 CE. Look further back in biblical history, say 120 years before the great Flood in creation year 1657, Yahweh warned the world to repent in Genesis 6:3, “. . . “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”” (3 X 40 years = 120 years) Please understand, the whole redemption plan is wrapped up in the 1,960-year Jubilee cycles (40 49-year Jubilee cycles, or 4 490-year great Jubilee cycles). We are now wrapping up the 3rd Super Jubilee Cycle of 1,960 years + 40 Jubilees = 2,000 years. 3 Super Jubilee Cycles X 2,000 years each = 6,000 years of Kingdom Time. In the first 1/3 or 2,000 years, Yahweh dealt with a fallen world after Adam and Eve, during the second 1/3 2,000 years, Yahweh dealt with His people Israel, from Abraham to Yeshua. In the third 1/3 2,000 years, Yahweh has dealt with His gentile Church. It’s time for Yahweh to wrap up His unfinished Sanctuary business in heaven and on earth, even under the earth, which means it’s time for all God’s children to repent. Ding! Time’s up!

I pray we are not in a 40 day cycle right now, but do take note that the Fall Feasts of all Israelites begins with the 7th Hebrew month next week. Anything could happen after Muslim Ramadan is over. Blown up peace talks, blown up Jerusalem or Tehran, anything is possible in the Middle East. There are other examples of judgment coming after 40 days, not just in Jonah’s day. Look back to Pentecost in 26 CE after Yeshua was baptized at the age of 29 by John the Baptist. He was then led into the desert for 40 days of fasting and prayer and to be tempted by the Devil. After 40 days of getting real hungry, Yeshua beat the Devil up with the Word and told him to take a hike! Look at 1 Samuel 17:16, not knowing that Yahweh was setting up the Philistines, Goliath taunted Israel’s army for 40 days, until David stoned him and led Israel to a great victory over their dreaded enemy. Yahweh is very longsuffering, but He doesn’t have to wait 40 days, 40 years, or 40 Jubilees to judge His people, but in His mercy, He waits for His people to repent. As far as I know, no prophet has pronounced a 40-day judgment on America or anyone else in the world, but we sense in the Spirit that Yahweh is rapidly drawing human history to a close.

My indicators are pointing to 2030 CE as the end of the end year, because 30 CE + 1,960 years (40 Jubilee Cycles) = 1990 CE + 40 years in the wilderness of transition with the apostate church = 2030 CE. 1990 CE represents the end of 2,000 years in Kingdom Time (remember, 40 49-year Jubilee Cycles + 40 Jubilee years), Yeshua may have left the Heavenly Sanctuary then, but I hope not. I don’t believe we would still be here if our High Priest, Yeshua, had left the Sanctuary in 1990 CE. In true solar years, 2,000 years from Yeshua’s death, burial, resurrection, and ascension in 30 CE is 2030 CE. Either way, the 2,000 years is two days in Yahweh’s reckoning, so by 2030 CE, Sanctuary business should be wrapped up. Once Yeshua our once suffering Lamb, become our interceding High Priest, leaves the Sanctuary, He changes from priestly robes to His Kingly robes. At that point in Kingdom Time, mercy is over, and judgment really begins. Then the saints receive the eternal Kingdom of Yahweh we’ve all been waiting for. 20 years is nothing folks, the older you get, the more you realize that, but that does not mean we should not repent today. It’s just a fair warning, that’s all. Yahweh is faithful to give us warning. WARNING! WARNING! After all, who is going to keep the Muslims, or the Vatican, or the European Union, or the United Nations, or the One World Order in check for 20 more years? Repent, again I say, repent! Then rejoice and watch Earl hurl.
