Beware the Coming False Messiah

Beware the Coming False Messiah

 

John 11:5-56, “And the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went from the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 56Then they sought Yeshua, and spoke among themselves as they stood in the temple, “What do you think—that He will not come to the feast?”” The warning for today is that if you hear of any person claiming to be the Messiah, appearing anywhere in the world today, DO NOT GO AFTER THAT PERSON, he is NOT Yeshua the Messiah. There is a word going forth in the prophetic realm that the anti-messiah may appear around Passover, 2012 CE. If someone does appear around Passover 2012 CE, this is NOT Messiah Yeshua. DO NOT SEEK OUT THIS PERSON, he will be an anti-messiah.

 

The Holy Spirit has been telling my wife for a couple months that when He returns to earth, He will not be performing signs and wonders like He did when He came the first time. Revelation 22:12-13, “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Yeshua is returning for His bride, to reward His saints, destroy His enemies, and to establish His Kingdom on earth. So, if you see some guy claiming to be the messiah and performing any kind of miracles, signs, wonders, or other supernatural acts, DO NOT BELIEVE THAT PERSON, he is an anti-messiah. Yeshua is returning as conquering King; He did the signs and miracles on His first trip to earth, He won’t be doing that stuff on His return trip. GET THIS WARNING INTO YOUR SPIRIT, so you won’t be deceived by the coming Anti-Messiah.

 

Yeshua was rejected the last time when He presented Himself as the political Messiah of Israel, humbly riding into Jerusalem on the back of a little donkey. That wasn’t Yahweh’s time for Him to reign as King of the universe. When Yeshua returns this time, it WILL BE THE TIME FOR HIM TO REIGN AS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! The 2,000-year gap between Daniel’s 69th and 70th weeks is over! We are now in an end-time transition period of time waiting for Daniel’s 70th week to kick off.

 

Read again John chapters 12 and 13. People were confused as to what Yeshua was to accomplish at His first coming. Likewise, people today are confused as to what Yeshua will accomplish at His second coming. The signs and wonders thing is about over. Yeshua is coming to separate His sheep from the devil’s goats. The Anti-Messiah may come performing signs and wonders to gain attention and allegiance from deceived carnal people. Yeshua has spent the last 2,000 years building His global church. Today, you are either in or out. It’s about past time to repent of your sins and turn to Yeshua for salvation. The door of opportunity is closing. The people today who are trying to establish a worldwide ecumenical church, a one-world church, are lost deceived religious folks. They are being setup to follow the false prophet into the final one world religion, which will be part of the beast system and New World Order, leading directly to the One World Order. You want nothing to do with that ridiculous religious movement. That church group believes it is emerging, but believers know that it is really submerging people into deception and death. I believe you can find a new video on the internet called “The Submerging Church”. Sounds corny, but it exposes what this move to a one-world religion is about. You want no part of it.

 

Folks, Yeshua is returning to give you, his saints, his bride, the Kingdom of Yahweh. Wait for it. This is what is coming to earth for us. Many of us may be beheaded first, but Yahweh believes in resurrection!! Since He resurrected Yeshua, He will resurrect you!! Just trust Him people. Daniel 7:18, 21-22, “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever. . . 21I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, 22until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.” What is coming upon the earth for the saints is a kingdom, with our King at its helm!!! Revelation 12:10-11, “Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Mighty One, and the power of His Messiah have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our Mighty One day and night, has been cast down. 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

 

We may be raptured, but Daniel describes a war against the saints, with our enemy prevailing against us, for a time. That has been happening for 2,000 years saints, that war is about over. But if we have to endure through the coming tribulation, many of us may die as martyrs or casualties in the coming wars and judgments upon this wicked world. Death is nothing for saints to fear, it’s your ticket out of here. Yeshua stated in Revelation 1:17b-18, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” What did Yeshua say in His last days prophecy in Matthew 24:13, “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” We need tribulation and persecution to have something to endure through. You don’t overcome your enemy (sin, devil) in heaven, you overcome your enemy on earth. You don’t overcome your flesh in heaven, you overcome your flesh on earth. You don’t overcome the world in heaven, you overcome the world on earth. Overcoming is a major theme in Yeshua’s letters to the churches in Revelation.

Persian History Discrepancy

A DISCREPANCY BETWEEN PERSIAN HISTORY

AND THE HOLY SCRIPTURES OF DANIEL 9:24-27

Martin Anstey, a great scholar and Scripture chronologist, was the first man, as far as I know, to discover a discrepancy between late ancient Persian history and the Scriptures. He details his discovery in his magnificent work known as the Romance of Bible Chronology, published in 1913 CE, and available here: http://www.preteristarchive.com/Books/1913_anstey_romance.html

Unfortunately, Mr. Anstey placed the initial year of Daniel’s 70 weeks, the first 69 weeks that would lead up to Messiah the Prince, from Daniel 9:25, in the year 457 BCE, calling that year the 1st year of Cyrus, king of Persia. Unfortunately, Cyrus’ decree did not fulfill all the requirements of Daniel 9:25, “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks (69 prophetic weeks of years); the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times.” History and chronology researcher, Eugene Faulstich, made a strong argument in his books, History, Harmony, and Daniel, and in History, Harmony, the Exile and Return, for Cyrus’ first year in 551 BCE, way too early to fulfill Daniel 9:25. King Cyrus’ decree in 551 BCE did allow some Jews (including Nehemiah and Mordecai, as you’ll see later) to return about 550 BCE to Judah and Jerusalem and build an altar and begin sacrifices again to worship Yahweh.

 

Mr. Faulstich, coming scientifically, and astronomically, from creation forward shows that the Artaxerxes of Nehemiah 2, which declares the decree that fulfills Daniel 9:25, was Darius I Hystaspes of Persia, whose 20th year was in 502 BCE. That year was 96 years after Nehemiah was taken captive with Ezekiel, King Jehoiachin, Mordecai and Esther, in the spring of 598 BCE. 502 BCE fits Nehemiah’s age and life experiences. Nehemiah would have been at least 143 years old in 457 BCE. It is highly unlikely that Nehemiah would still have been working for the King of Persia at that age, in 457 BCE!!

 

Dr. Gavin Finley, in his good chronology work on the website, www.endtimepilgrim.org makes a strong astronomical argument that “proves” that Yeshua made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Nisan 10, 32 CE. That Nisan 10 was a very late in the year Nisan, thus providing enough day-space in time to tie to the 20th year of an Artaxerxes in Nisan 1, 445 BCE. Mr. Finley believes the Artaxerxes of Nehemiah 2 was Artaxerxes I Longimanus, whose 20th year was supposedly in 445 BCE. Prophetically, the 69 weeks of Daniel equal exactly 69 X 7 = 483 prophetic years of exactly 360 days each, or 173,880 days. 173,880 / 365.2422 days = 476 solar years + about 25 days. An early Nisan 1, in 445 BCE, to the late Nisan 10, in 32 CE, is the ONLY year combination that fits the Daniel 9:25 criterion. Dr. Finley makes a rather long-winded, but good, argument for his case. Unfortunately, Nehemiah would have been at least 155 years old in 445 BCE! It is highly doubtful that he was still working for the King of Persia at that age!! And then to think that Nehemiah would make the long journey to Jerusalem at over 155 years of age to be governor of Judah, perform a great construction project for 12 years, then return to Persia at over the age of 166, then return to Judah again at over 167 or 168 years of age, to take a 2nd term as Judah’s governor, is just too much to believe for one old man.

 

Nehemiah 7:6-7 shows that both Nehemiah and Mordecai returned from Babylon/Persia to Judea in about 550 BCE with Zerubbabel, as a result of King Cyrus’ decree in 551 BCE, “These are the people of the province who came back from the captivity, of those who had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and who returned to Jerusalem and Judah, everyone to his city. 7Those who came with Zerubbabel were Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai,” 550 BCE was the 49th year of Nehemiah’s captivity, a reasonal age for a man to journey back to Judea, then return again later to Babylon/Persia, because of the Magi revolt, to become the king’s cupbearer in 522 BCE, in his 77th year of captivity, at the accession of Darius I Hystaspes to the throne of Persia. Do you see it? Nehemiah’s 1st year as cupbearer was in 522 BCE, as an aged man, thus his 20th year as cupbearer was in 503 BCE, per Nehemiah 1:1-3, “The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. It came to pass in the month of Chislev (9th month in Hebrew year), in the twentieth year (as cupbearer to the king of Persia), as I was in Shushan the citadel, 2that Hanani one of my brethren came with men from Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews who had escaped, who had survived the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3And they said to me, “The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.”” Nehemiah was in distress (Neh. 2:2) from the month of Chislev, in the winter of 503 BCE, until he approached King Artaxerxes on Nisan 1, 502 BCE, the king’s 20th year, Nehemiah 2:1, “And it came to pass in the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was before him, that I took the wine and gave it to the king. Now I had never been sad in his presence before.” 502 BCE was the 97th year of Nehemiah’s captivity. He was now an old man, but apparently still able-bodied enough to be the king’s cupbearer and go to Jerusalem to become Judea’s governor. Now think about this, AFTER 12 years as governor of Judea, and having completed an 11 year 52 day building project in Jerusalem, Nehemiah returned to the king of Persia, in his 109th year of captivity, 490 BCE!! Nehemiah 5:14, “Moreover, from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year until the thirty-second year of King Artaxerxes, twelve years, neither I nor my brothers ate the governor’s provisions.” and Nehemiah 13:6, “But during all this I was not in Jerusalem, for in the thirty-second year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon I had returned to the king. Then after certain days I obtained leave from the king,”

 

What the research of all these fine sacred chronology researchers shows us, is that there is a serious discrepancy between Holy Scripture and ancient Persian history. I firmly believe in the inerrancy of Holy Scripture. If there is a discrepancy in human history, we take the Scriptures at face value as historical fact and adjust secular human history to conform to the Scriptures. What I’m saying is that the events of 502 BCE, the Decree of the Persian King Darius I Hystaspes, Artaxerxes, to restore and build Jerusalem, including the streets and the Wall of Nehemiah 2, MUST BE REDATED TO 445 BCE, IN ORDER FOR DANIEL’S 70 WEEKS PROPHECY TO FLOW PROPERLY TO 32 BCE, AND YESHUA’S TRIUMPHAL ENTRY ON NISAN 10 THAT YEAR!!! To leave secular history as is, and push Nehemiah down in time another 57 years, to make him over 155 years old when he became governor of Judea, is simply ludicrous. The problem is with Persian history, not biblical history. For Nehemiah to receive the decree from Artaxerxes in his 97th year of captivity is reasonable, in his 155th year of captivity is not reasonable.

 

As I stated before, the problem is with Persian history, not biblical history, BUT, if we chop 57 years out of Persian history, who in this modern secular humanist world would believe our work? Which scholar would be willing to remove 57 years from Persian history or from Ptolemy’s canon? Where has myth become legend become historical fact? Daniel’s 70-week prophecy in 9:24-27 is the ONLY reliable historical record that ties ancient Hebrew and Persian history to the Roman history of Jesus’ day. It’s a fairly simple thing for me to eliminate 57 lines, or years, from my 6,000-line Scripture chronology spreadsheet. But who in all of Christendom would believe that the Temple of Solomon was destroyed in 531 BCE, when all of Christendom believes it was destroyed in 587/588 BCE? If I told Dr. Gavin Finley that Artaxerxes I Longimanus never existed in real life, he was just a myth, would he believe me, or just get a good laugh out of my statement? I would be laughed to scorn today, but probably vindicated when Yeshua returns. I may just make such a spreadsheet in the future, just to show Yeshua and ask Him how close I came to actual factual historical truth. I stand with these great Christian men, and many others, and their wonderous work on chronology, Martin Anstey, Eugene Faulstich, Rodger C. Young, and Dr. Gavin Finley. I can’t wait to meet you all in the Kingdom and discuss these matters to satisfaction. Yahweh bless you all.

 

There are still a few mysteries in this world to be solved, Persian history is certainly one of them.

Jubilee and Ezekiel the Priest

Ezekiel the Priest

Preserved the Jubilee Calendar

Ezekiel the prophet was first a priest of Yahweh Most High. Ezekiel 1:3, “the word of Yahweh came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans (Babylon) by the River Chebar; and the hand of Yahweh was upon him there.” Apparently, Ezekiel was a righteous, faithful priest, for Yahweh gave him marvelous visions of the Kingdom and its future. Amazingly, Yahweh did not call Ezekiel to the office of prophet, until five years AFTER he had been taken captive by the Babylonians, during the Second Deportation of Jews, after King Jehoiakim died in his 11th year. For Ezekiel to be captured, and count his captivity by the same year count as young King Jehoiachin, Ezekiel may have been working with his priestly division in Jerusalem on the very day that King Jehoiachin was taken captive. That day was Adar 2, 598 BCE, according to Babylonian records. Because young King Jehoiachin began his short 3 month, 10 day reign (2 Kings 24:8; 2 Chronicles 36:9) after King Jehoiakim died, in the fall of 599 BCE, Ezekiel reckoned his and King Jehoiachin’s captivity years from Tishri 1, 599 BCE, notated as 599t for Tishri reckoning. Thanks to Rodger C. Young for giving the Bible student and scholar a good notation system for reckoning Israel’s and Judah’s king reigns. n=Nisan, t=Tishri reckoning. 2 Kings 24:12, “Then Jehoiachin king of Judah, his mother, his servants, his princes, and his officers went out to the king of Babylon; and the king of Babylon, in the eighth year (per Hebrew reckoning, 599n) of his reign, took him prisoner.” 2 Chron. 36:10, “At the turn of the year (could easily mean exactly on Nisan 1 or 2, 598 BCE) King Nebuchadnezzar summoned him (Jehoiachin) and took him to Babylon, with the costly articles from the house (Temple) of Yahweh, and made Zedekiah, Jehoiakim’s brother, king over Judah and Jerusalem.” Babylonian records show Adar 2 as the date Nebuchadnezzar took Jehoiachin, but the Scriptures say “at the turn of the year”. The point is, King Jehoiachin, Ezekiel, Mordecai and orphaned very young Esther (See Esther 2:5-6), and probably Nehemiah also (See Nehemiah 7:6-7), were taken captive in this SECOND DEPORTATION of Jews in the winter/spring of 599/598 BCE. Scribes recorded this second deportation in Jeremiah 52:28, “These are the people whom Nebuchadnezzar carried away captive: in the seventh year (Babylonian reckoning, still 599n), three thousand and twenty-three Jews;” The division of priests working on Adar 2, 598 BCE, was the order of Abijah; it’s possible that Ezekiel was a member of this priestly division. The division of priests working on Nisan 1, 598 BCE was the order of Jakim; maybe Ezekiel was a member of this priestly division. We’ll have to wait and ask him.

Please try to get a picture in your mind of Ezekiel, working in the Temple as a priest in early 598 BCE. From many chronological scripture references in the Book of Ezekiel, it is known that Ezekiel was quite familiar with Yahweh’s calendar system. It’s even possible that Ezekiel was one of the priests that actually kept track of the calendar for his Hebrew nation. That is my personal belief, and I believe the word brought forth in this article will bear this out. It is very possible that Ezekiel was the priest ordered to report the new month/new year to King Jehoiachin, either on Adar 2, 598 BCE, or on Nisan 1, 598 BCE. It’s possible that they were actually sitting down together for a royal dinner, celebrating the new moon (Rosh Chodesh) festival, when King Nebuchadnezzar’s commander came in and arrested them. I believe this is exactly what the Babylonian and Scriptural records reveal. 2 Chronicles 36:10 above seems to indicate that King Jehoiachin and his attendants may have been held in chains in Jerusalem until after the turn of the regnal year for King Nebuchadnezzar. Why? Vanity perhaps, or pressing year-end kingdom matters, but we know it would take some weeks or months to collect all the prominent people in Jerusalem and valuable items from the Temple and prepare a caravan of captives for the trek to Babylon.

Apparently, a bunch of them made it to Babylon alive, for we see in Ezekiel 1:1-2, that 5 years later, Ezekiel is called as a prophet of Yahweh Most High. 1:1-2, “Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year (during the 30th year of the JUBILEE CYCLE!!), in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month (Tamuz 5, 594 BCE), as I was among the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of Yahweh. 2On the fifth day of the month, which was in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity.” See the embedded spreadsheet sample for a breakdown of these years, but we know that Ezekiel and King Jehoiachin were captured in year 599t. Therefore, we know that Jehoiachin’s 5th year is year 595t (get your brain to think inclusively). Notice that Ezekiel did not record his calling until the following summer, on Tamuz 5, 594 BCE, which was still Jehoiachin’s 5th year, 595t. King Jehoiachin’s 5th year was therefore from Tishri 1, 595 BCE, to Elul 29/30, 594 BCE, 12 months known as 595t. Notice that Ezekiel DID NOT write the word “Jubilee” when he wrote of the 30th year. Remember, Ezekiel was a captive in the pagan hostile nation of Babylon, which was in the process of destroying the Kingdom and nation of Judah and its religion, Judaism. Personally, I believe Ezekiel was purposefully writing a historical record, tracking the Jubilee cycle for his Hebrew nation and religion, but coded his message enough so the Chaldeans would not execute him for treason or sedition against Babylon.

It was exactly three years ago (around Nisan 1, 2009 CE) this week (Nisan 1, 2012 CE) that Yahweh first gave me the revelation of Ezekiel 1:1-3. Happy New Year by the way!! I’ve been digging into the book of Ezekiel for these last 3 years and into Yahweh’s calendar for the last 6 ½ years. My wife thinks I’m nuts and a bit introverted at times, but this is the most exciting study of my life!! Ezekiel divulges, defines, describes, declares, and demonstrates the JUBILEE CYCLE OF YAHWEH, all in language tied to his king’s captivity, so he won’t get killed, and yet Yahweh’s word and Jubilee calendar will be preserved for all humanity for eternity!!! Ezekiel was elegantly brilliant in his masterful recording of real history and the real Jubilee Cycle.

Now, we will jump forward 20 years in Ezekiel’s and King Jehoiachin’s captivity, to Ezekiel 40:1. Thanks again to Rodger C. Young for pointing me to the Hebrew of Ezekiel 40:1. What is revealed in this one tiny obscure verse of the Scriptures blew my mind away, again. 40:1, “In the twenty-fifth year of our captivity, at the beginning of the year (the Hebrew literally reads: at Rosh Hashanah, at the beginning of the JUBILEE Year!), on the tenth day of the month (Yom Kippur!), in the fourteenth year after the city was captured, on the very same day (Ezekiel specifically notes a special day, Yom Kippur, begin JUBILEE!) the hand of Yahweh was upon me; and He took me there.” From my personal research of hundreds of scripture references, including 2 Chronicles 36:10 above, Ezekiel 40:1 is the ONLY VERSE IN THE SCRIPTURES WHERE THE PHRASE “AT ROSH HASHANAH” IS USED!!! Every Jew and most Messianic believers know what Rosh Hashanah means; it’s the turn of the Jewish civil year in the seventh month of Tishri. A normal Rosh Hashanah occurs on Tishri 1, with the Feast of Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets, NOT on Tishri 10, which is Yom Kippur, as Ezekiel used here. When Rosh Hashanah is declared on Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, it is the announcement of the JUBILEE YEAR!!! Here’s Yahweh’s Law through Moses on the matter, Leviticus 25:8-13, “‘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 (Tishri); 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. 13In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.’’”

Look at the spreadsheet again, but by the time Ezekiel recorded 40:1 in his 25th year of captivity, it was Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, in the year 575 BCE, 575t. Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem had been destroyed 14 years before in the summer of 588 BCE. Ezekiel could not blow a trumpet; he may not have had a trumpet available anyway. The Jews could not celebrate the Jubilee; they could no longer offer the sacrifices for the Day of Atonement, the Temple was demolished, as was most of Jerusalem. They were in captivity in a hostile foreign nation. The Kingdom of Judah was no more, but the nation of Judah was alive and prospering in Babylon. The Jews of Ezekiel’s captivity days could not observe the Feasts of Yahweh, nor celebrate the Jubilee Year, nor could they return to their own possession, their real estate in the Holy Land, BUT EZEKIEL SUBTLY RECORDED THE FACT OF THE JUBILEE YEAR, again in coded language so the Babylonians would not recognize what he was doing, again preserving his life and the life of his people, as well as the Jubilee Calendar of Yahweh, and the Word of Yahweh! Wise, very wise, thank you, Ezekiel!! The Sacred Chronology synchronism found between Ezekiel 1:1-3 and Ezekiel 40:1 is one of the most profound, beautiful, mysterious, revelatory codes found in the Scriptures!! I’m still speechless and humbled.

Now, I want you to get a handle on HOW Ezekiel interpreted Leviticus 25, regarding the Jubilee Year. Was it a 49th year Jubilee year, or a 50th year Jubilee year? My spreadsheet shows clearly how Ezekiel understood Leviticus 25 to be interpreted. Ezekiel understood the Jubilee Cycle and Year to be a larger picture of the mini-cycle demonstrated in the Feast of Weeks, or Feast of Shavuot, Pentecost. During the 7-day Feast of Unleavened Bread, a Sabbath day occurs. The day after this Sabbath is the Feast of First Fruits and the beginning of the 50-day omer count to the Feast of Shavuot, Pentecost. You always begin the count on the Sunday after the Sabbath that occurs during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and then Shavuot, or Pentecost, is ALWAYS on a Sunday, 50 days later, after an interval of 7 Sabbaths have passed. Yahweh said seven Sabbaths of years, well seven Sabbaths of days or years equal 49 years, or days. Shavuot is always a separate day from the preceding Sabbath day, Jubilee Year is always a separate year from the preceding 7th Sabbatical year. The 49th year is a Sabbatical year, and the Jubilee is ALWAYS the NEXT YEAR, the 50th year, which is also the 1st year of the next Jubilee Cycle. That’s the way Ezekiel described it, that’s the way I believe it, you know . . . that settles it for me.

Beginning at Ezekiel’s and Jehoiachin’s 5th captivity year 5 in 595 BCE, we add 20 years and come to their 25th year of captivity in 575 BCE, 5 + 20 = 25. Well, their 5th year of captivity was equated to the 30th year of the Jubilee in Ezekiel 1:1-2, so 30 + 20 years = 50th year, NOT the 49th year. 575 BCE, the 50th year, was therefore the Jubilee year, not the previous year of 576 BCE, the 49th, or 7th Sabbatical year. Look at Leviticus 25 above again. In verse 8 Yahweh says 7 sabbaths of years will be 49 years. In verse 10, Yahweh says you will consecrate the 50th year as the Jubilee Year. Verse 9 tells us to blow the trumpet of the Jubilee on Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, BUT IN WHICH YEAR? the 49th or the 50th year? I believe Ezekiel’s and Jehoiachin’s life in captivity, which is ancient Judah’s real true history, and Scripture, reveal that he understood the trumpet was to be blown on Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, of the 50th year, AFTER counting seven Sabbaths of years, or 49 years. The Scriptures clearly reveal this, and my embedded spreadsheet upholds Ezekiel’s interpretation of Leviticus 25, the 50th year is the Year of Jubilee!! Yahweh is just so wise and cool, he embeds a 50th year Jubilee in a 49-year cycle, just by making the 50th year Jubilee the 1st year, or starting year, of the next Jubilee cycle!! He is awesome! You can refute my spreadsheet if you want to, it’s not Scripture, but you will have a hard time refuting Ezekiel and Yahweh.

Just for icing on the revelation, turn to Isaiah 37:30 and his words of promise to Judah’s King Hezekiah, during Israel’s (the northern 10 tribes) last days as a nation, “This shall be a sign to you:  You shall eat this year (the 7th, or Sabbatical year, the 49th year) such as grows of itself (can’t harvest because of the Sabbatical year), and the second year (the 8th, or Jubilee Year, the 50th year) what springs from the same (glean what grows of itself again); also in the third year (the 9th, or 2nd year of the new Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycle, the year AFTER the 50th year) sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them.” This Scripture makes no sense on a 49th-year Jubilee calendar, but ONLY makes sense on a 50th-year Jubilee calendar. Notice how Isaiah 37:30 meshes with Leviticus 25:20-22, “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 (either years 6, 7, & 8, the 48th, 49th, and 50th years, or years 7, 8, & 9, the 49th, 50th and 51st years!!). 22And you shall sow in the eighth year (AFTER the Jubilee ends in the fall), and eat old produce until the ninth year (year 9, the 2nd year of the next Jubilee Cycle, the 51st year); until its produce comes in, you shall eat of the old harvest (from the 6th year).” Any way you look at Lev. 25:20-22, Yahweh was going to provide enough produce to last 3 years, which would always include 1 Sabbatical and 1 Jubilee year!!! Isn’t that beautiful? Yahweh, Moses, Isaiah, and Ezekiel are all in agreement. This revelation of Ezekiel’s Jubilee in 575 BCE has interesting ramifications for the chronology of WHEN, in WHAT YEAR, did Isaiah give his prophecy to King Hezekiah? I have not seen a solid answer from any scholar to date, none based on Ezekiel’s Jubilee anyway. Ezekiel’s Sacred Chronology of his Jubilee Year settles the issue for all eternity, but Isaiah will have to wait for another post.

There is no Scriptural evidence that any Jubilee has ever been observed or celebrated by the nation of Israel, northern or southern kingdom. Some say we can’t celebrate it, because we have no Temple in Jerusalem. Some say we don’t celebrate it, because we’re in the gap period AFTER Daniel’s 69th week (which ended at Yeshua’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Nisan 10), but BEFORE Daniel’s 70th week, which will be the tribulation seven years. Any way you look at it, WE WILL OBSERVE AND CELEBRATE THE NEXT JUBILEE YEAR ON EARTH! And remember, the 7th year, or Sabbatical year of Daniel’s 70th week is a 49th year (490th actually) of a long, though interrupted, 490-year, 10-Jubilee Cycle. THE NEXT JUBILEE WILL BE THE YEAR AFTER DANIEL’S 70TH WEEK, BEGINNING ON TISHRI 10, YOM KIPPUR, IN THE 50TH YEAR, THE BEGINNING OF A NEW JUBILEE CYCLE (THE 8TH YEAR), UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT OF OUR LORD, MASTER, HIGH PRIEST AND KING, YESHUA!!! Don’t miss it; it will be a Jubilee Year to remember.

Oh yeah, the next Jubilee Year, based on Ezekiel’s Jubilee in 575 BCE, IF Daniel’s GAP ends soon, will begin on Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, in 2023 CE!! This of course, means that the 7-year tribulation must kick off in the fall of 2016 CE!! Oh my, time is short!!

The Final 7

The Final 7

 

Revelation 12:6, “Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.”

 

Daniel 12:11, “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.”

 

Daniel 12:12, “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.”

 

As we continue to study the prophetic biblical calendar used by Yahweh to define prophetic end-time events, let’s look at the final 7 years of human history as we know it. Yahweh’s perfect prophetic biblical calendar is divided into 12 equal months of 30 days each, making one year equal to a total of 360 days. In the above two passages speaking to the end-times, we see one passage stating 1260 days and another stating 1290 days. The seven-year tribulation period will be about 2,520 days long, 360 X 7 = 2,520 biblical days. But notice Daniel tacks on one more prophetic month in 12:11! So, 2,520 + 30 = 2,550 prophetic days related to the tribulation. In 12:12, Daniel adds another 45 days to the prophetic timeline!! 2,550 + 45 = 2,595 days. As Charles Wheeling says, 1260, 1290, and 1335 days are three and a part years, relating to the last half of the Tribulation.

 

We have found something interesting to look at in regards to the final 7. Dr. Gavin Finley on www.endtimepilgrim.org states that by adding 1260 and 1290, getting to 2,550 days, equal 86 natural world moons plus 10 days. So what’s interesting about that? Well, think about it. Say the Tribulation begins on Tishri 1 of an upcoming year, then when would the Great Tribulation end? Think about it. After 7 Tishri 1’s, what day is 10 days later? Yom Kippur, Judgment Day! Let’s take an example from our calendar conversion program. What is the Julian day # of Tishri 10, 2023, for example? It is 2460212. What is the Julian day # of Tishri 1, 7 years earlier, in 2016? It is 2457663. 2460212 – 2457663 = 2549 days + 1 day to get our inclusive days = 2,550 days!! Isn’t that interesting? Why? Well, Tishri 1, 2016, begins the first year of a Sabbatical cycle, according to the ancient Sabbatical years, discovered by Dr. Ernest Martin. But, if the tribulation is 7 years long, the last year, from 2022 to 2023, is the NEXT JUBILEE YEAR, according to the ancients. So, would Yahweh have Yeshua show up AFTER the Jubilee Year expires? I don’t think He would, but He can do it if He wants to. What I’m saying is that in order for Yeshua to show up on a Yom Kippur to ANNOUNCE a Jubilee Year to His people, the Tribulation will have to begin in a year 7 of a Sabbatical cycle!

 

Because of The Harbinger revelation given to Jonathan Cahn, we now know that Yahweh is judging America per the modern Jewish Sabbatical cycles, which, by the way, DO NOT MATCH any of the ancient Sabbatical years discovered by Bible scholars. I believe Yahweh is doing this simply because modern Jews and Messianic Christians have an understanding of the modern Jewish calendar. Amazing when you think about it. According to the modern Jewish calendar, the NEXT Sabbatical cycle begins on Tishri 1, 2015 CE. So, let’s try that year against our knowledge of the final 7. The Julian Day # of Tishri 10, 2022, is 2459857. The Julian Day # of Tishri 1, 2015, is 2457279. 2459857 – 2457279 = 2,578 days! Oops, no match to 2,550 biblical days!! Do your own research, but I will tell you that the years from 2014 CE to 2021 CE DO MATCH and the years 2017 CE to 2024 CE ALSO MATCH! What is cool about 2014 is that Tishri 1, 2014, begins a year 7 on the modern Jewish calendar!! And what about 2021? What’s significant about that year? Well, in 2021 CE, America will be 414 years old, from the founding of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607 CE. So what? Well, according to Dr. Stephen E. Jones, 414 years is the life cycle of a nation UNDER JUDGMENT!! What am I saying? I believe we will see the unfolding of the final 7 years, the Tribulation of Daniel and Revelation, in our lifetime, actually, in our near future lifetime.

 

The way things are going in the Middle East, I hear we just sent more ships to the Mid East to a faceoff with Iran, we will see war at some point in the next 12 months. Will the war happen on a biblical feast day? Possibly! Will it be the Psalm 83 war, the Isaiah 17 wipe out of Damascus, or the Daniel 8 war between the West and Islam? Will Egypt be left desolate for 40 years from a nuclear holocaust, per Ezekiel 29:8ff? I don’t know, but this next war will be swift, devastating, and significant. If it is the Daniel 8 war, America will win the battle, but lose the war and be finished on the world scene. All we can do is watch, pray, and repent heartbeat by heartbeat!

 

As we saw in our last post, Hosea 6:2’s two days of grace ended on September 10, 2001 CE. On September 11, 2001, we entered a transition time of warning sign judgments upon America and the world. We are now in the 11th year of those warning sign judgments. If Yeshua is going to return on a Yom Kippur to declare a Jubilee to His people, I would begin to really watch as each upcoming Tishri 1, Rosh Hashana, Jewish civil New Year’s Day, passes by. Something big, and final is finally going to happen!! How long before the final 7 kicks off? I don’t know, but it will be soon, I guarantee it, by the authority of the truth of Yahweh’s word. The Fall Feasts of Yahweh yet remain to be fulfilled. Yeshua will fulfill them to the letter of the Torah, just like He fulfilled the Spring Feasts of the Lord when He came the first time. Tishri 1 is the Fall Feast of Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets. We should here the trumpets of the Lord blasting any year now, announcing the King’s return to earth. Keep repenting and keep looking up, because the King is coming!!

A PROFOUND REVELATION

A PROFOUND REVELATION

 

As human history comes to a close in the 21st century, Yahweh sharply focuses the lens through which we look at our history in the context of biblical end time prophecy, as He continues to unveil His prophetic secrets. The theme for humans at the close of history is repentance. Hosea gives us a brief but profound prophecy in 6:1-2, “Come, and let us return to Yahweh; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. 2After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight.” I’ve written on this scripture many times before, but this time we will look at it from the angle of sacred chronology as it relates to the end times we live in. The end of human history is bad news for Satan and his cohorts, but it is good news for the saints of Yahweh. Satan and his followers are headed for the lake of fire and torment for eternity. The saints of Yahweh are headed for the bliss of living forevermore in His blessed presence!!

 

We will be talking a lot about Yahweh’s biblical perfect prophetic calendar, without a lot of explanation of it. To learn more about Yahweh’s calendar, check out the books of Daniel, Revelation, and the story of Noah’s flood in Genesis. There are plenty of resources on the internet for you to learn as much as you want to know about the Hebrew biblical calendar. It is your responsibility and privilege to search out the matter. Yahweh’s perfect biblical prophetic calendar is based on a year of 360 days, comprised of 12 months of 30 days each, exactly. Yahweh’s calendar is the one in use in the most beautiful end time prophecy in the Scriptures, Daniel 9:24-27. Daniel 9 takes place in the context of the 70-year captivity of Judah after King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had destroyed Jerusalem and Solomon’s Temple in the early 6th century BCE. Daniel 9:1-2, “In the first year of Darius (the Mede, Astyages, Ahasuerus) the son of Ahasuerus (Cyaxares I, Ahasuerus), of the lineage of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans—2in the first year of his (Darius’) reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of Yahweh through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.” The year was 573 BCE.

 

Daniel was praying and confessing and pouring his heart out to Yahweh, when the angel Gabriel showed up and gave him the prophecy of the 70 weeks. Let’s pick it up from verse 20, “Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before Yahweh my Mighty One for the holy mountain of my Mighty One, 21yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering (about 3 pm). 22And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. 23At 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 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.

25 “Know therefore and understand,

That from the going forth of the command

    To restore and build Jerusalem

Until Messiah the Prince,

There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks (total of 69 weeks of biblical, not solar, years);

The street shall be built again, and the wall,

Even in troublesome times.

26 “And after the sixty-two weeks (at the end of 69 total weeks of biblical, not solar, years)

    Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;

And the people of the prince who is to come

Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.

The end of it shall be with a flood,

And till the end of the war desolations are determined.

27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (the final 70th week of Bible prophecy);

But in the middle of the (70th) week

He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.

And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,

Even until the consummation, which is determined,

Is poured out on the desolate.””

 

The consummation of the human age ends after the end of 70 weeks of years of Daniel’s prophecy, but Messiah was cut off after the end of 69 weeks of prophetic years. One week of years equal seven years. 69 weeks of prophetic years equal 483 biblical years of 360 days each. Daniel’s 70-week prophecy kicks off with a royal command to restore and build Jerusalem, when Jerusalem would regain its political sovereignty after the 70 years of captivity in Babylon. This royal decree was not pronounced until AFTER many Jews had returned to Judah. This decree was not pronounced until AFTER the second Temple was rebuilt. This decree to restore and rebuild a political Jerusalem city-state was the FOURTH decree by a Persian king made on behalf of Judah. It was proclaimed by one king known as Artaxerxes (a throne title, not a personal name), in the 20th year of his reign. The FOURTH decree is recorded in Nehemiah 2. Nehemiah was an old man when he received the letters from King Artaxerxes; he had been taken captive to Babylon during one of the Deportations of Nebuchadnezzar, almost 100 years earlier!!

 

The decree of Artaxerxes kicks off a prophetic timeline that ended when Yeshua entered Jerusalem on a donkey on Palm Sunday, March 31, 30 CE, in fulfillment of Zechariah 9:9, “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.” That day, Nisan 10, Sunday, March 31, 30 CE, was the ONLY day that Yeshua revealed Himself to His people as the political Messiah they were expecting and knew was to come. In Matthew 21, the people were looking for the conquering king, and heralded Him as King, but He came then as the Suffering Servant, Who died 4 days later by crucifixion. 69 prophetic weeks of years equal 483 biblical years, equal 173,880 days, exactly. March 31, Nisan 10, 30 CE, was the 173,880th day, exactly. Yeshua fulfilled Daniel 9:26, exactly, to the day. From Nisan 10, the day Yeshua presented Himself as the political Messiah of Israel, to the day He ascended to Heaven, 40 days AFTER His resurrection, to the Feast of Pentecost 10 days later, when the Holy Spirit birthed the church age, or age of grace, on May 26, 30 CE, in Acts chapter 2, was a TRANSITION PERIOD BETWEEN PROPHETIC TIMELINES when Yahweh accomplished His greatest redemptive works on earth.

 

I want to give you intellectual, astronomical types the Julian day numbers to help you verify Yeshua’s fulfillment of prophecy, if you so desire. Nisan 10, 30 CE, Messiah presentation day, was Julian day # 1732106. Passover, Nisan 14, 30 CE, crucifixion day, was Julian day # 1732110. Resurrection day, Nisan 17, (resurrection occurring just after sundown, Saturday night), was Julian day 1732113. Ascension day was Julian day # 1732152. Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit birthed the church age, or age of grace was Julian day # 1732162. The Hosea 6:2 prophetic timeline kicks in on Pentecost, 30 CE, Sivan 7, Sunday, May 26th, Julian day # 1732162. The Scriptures tell us that a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as a day to Yahweh, so when you look at Hosea 6:2, you see 2,000 prophetic biblical years being talked about. Go back and reread Hosea 6:2. Hosea stated that AFTER exactly 2,000 biblical prophetic years, Yahweh would begin to revive His people and lift us up on the THIRD day, which is of course, the Millennial Reign of Messiah on earth.

 

Ok, so here’s the PROFOUND REVELATION. 2,000 biblical years is EXACTLY 2,000 X 360 = 720,000 days. So what you say? Well, let’s add the 720,000 days of Hosea’s two prophetic 1,000-year days to the Julian day # of Pentecost 30 CE and see where we land on Yahweh’s prophetic timeline of end-time biblical history. Sunday, May 26, 30 CE, was Julian day # 1732162, plus 720,000 biblical prophetic days of Hosea 6:2, equal Julian day # 2452162. So what you say? Well, Julian day # 2452162 just HAPPENS TO BE Monday, September 10, 2001 CE!!! HOSEA’S TWO PROPHETIC DAYS ENDED EXACTLY ON September 10, 2001 CE, and his THIRD DAY BEGAN ON THE NEXT JULIAN DAY # 2452163, SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 CE, THE DAY THE WORLD CHANGED FOREVER, ESPECIALLY FOR AMERICA, WHO IS MANASSEH, AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE LOST 10 TRIBES OF ISRAEL!!!! The western world would never be the same. Yahweh had begun to wake up spiritual Israel, America, Great Britain (Ephraim), and the modern State of Israel, representing our brother Judah. (Technically, per the biblical 360-day calendar, the THIRD DAY began on September 18, 2001, Tishri 1, 5762 Jewish, the day AFTER the stock market crash of Sept. 17, but we did enter a transition period on Sept. 11, 2001.)

 

September 11, 2001 CE, the day Yahweh lifted his hand of protection off of America and let our walls be breached. The harbingers of the end began on that day, America’s years of warning sign judgments had begun!! The prophecy of Isaiah 9:10 was unleashed upon the world in hopes of bringing proud, arrogant humans to Yeshua, before the end, but we continue to defy the calamity of 9/11, as well as every calamity since. Isaiah 9:10, “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with hewn stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will replace them with cedars.” I cannot emphasize enough how much you want to get your hands on Pastor Jonathan Cahn’s teaching on The Harbinger, available here: http://www.theharbinger-jonathancahn.com/ and preview his DVD teaching here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-1Next79yY You can search the internet and find more of Jonathan Cahn’s teachings on the Harbingers, his teachings appear to be going viral on YouTube.com.

 

Folks, this is THE WORD for today, especially for America, since it is now apparent that Yahweh is warning and judging America according to the Sabbatical cycles of the modern Jewish calendar. Elul 29, September 17, 2001, the day the New York Stock Exchange reopened after 9/11, it experienced its greatest point drop in history up to that day. Then, EXACTLY 7 years later on Elul 29, September 29, 2008 CE, the Stock Market crashed again, experiencing its largest point drop in history up to that day. Elul 29 in 2001 and 2008 were the last day of the Jewish Sabbatical year on which all debts were to be cancelled. Yahweh is trying to get our attention. Are you waking up before it’s too late? Turn from your sinful self today and run to Yeshua for the salvation of your soul, before the next warning sign judgment falls on us. It will only be by the grace and mercy of Yahweh that we will make it to Elul 29, Sunday, September 13th, 2015 CE. Mark your calendar, it will be a day to remember.

 

Father, I ask you to pour out your Spirit of repentance upon your people and rip that spirit of defiance out of our hearts and out of the hearts of our leaders, before it’s too late. Save us oh Lord!!

 

Sometime very soon, Daniel’s 70th week of the final 7 years tribulation will unfold before our very eyes. Watch and pray for it, because our redemption draweth nigh! But remember, it will be 7 biblical prophetic years of 360 days each, or 2,520 days, or 1,260 + 1,260 days, or 42 months + 42 months, or a time, times, and a half time + 1,290 days or + 1,335 days! Stay tuned, we’ll discuss the final 7 years in another post!!

Everyday Price Index

Everyday Price Index

 

You know, we used to say don’t believe everything you hear, or read. Now, we can emphatically say don’t believe anything you hear or read from your corrupt, bankrupt, communist civil government. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for 2011, which shows inflation to only be 3.1 percent. Well, you might want to check out the website of the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER). http://www.aier.org/article/7557-epi-reflects-basic-economic-change They show that the real inflation rate, the Everyday Price Index (EPI), for the ordinary Joe Plumber in America was actually closer to 8 percent for 2011. The CPI tracks things like new home purchases, new cars, new computers, etc. But really, how many Americans buy a new home or new car or new computer every year? The EPI tracks stuff real people like Joe Plumber purchase, fuel, groceries, communications services, etc. Fuel alone went up 21.06 % in 2011!! Inflation is just another way of saying your dollar is losing purchasing power, or your dollar is being devalued. There’s nothing pretty or economically stimulating about inflation, it’s just another tax on your life.

 

So, aren’t you glad you don’t have to depend on the world for your happiness? You can have peace and joy in Yeshua, no matter what the actual inflation rate is. The world, its financial system, Satan’s system, is corrupt and bankrupt and impossibly in debt. Once Yeshua gets back here and reinstitutes His Sabbatical and Jubilee Year cycles, debts will be forgiven and cancelled each 7 years and you can get your real estate, your family’s inheritance, back each 49 years. You folks with college student loan debt, do you realize there is no way to be rid of that debt, except pay it off or die? Declaring bankruptcy does not eliminate student loan debt. Yippie.

 

No worries. Recently, we’ve mentioned Jonathan Cahn’s book, The Harbinger. I still strongly encourage all of you to get the book, and his DVD, if you can. It will help you understand what is happening in America. Read Isaiah 9:8-10, “Yahweh sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. 9And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, 10The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” This ancient prophecy is determining the final days and years of America. The spirit of defiance as seen in these verses is the spirit of America today. Don’t believe me? Have you been watching the weather news lately? We are experiencing lots of tornados again this year. Well, did you hear the comments made by the Harrisburg, Illinois mayor, Eric Gregg? Just like national leaders after 9/11, Mayor Gregg stated the Isaiah 9:10 vow of defiance, with the words, “we will rebuild”. He also said something about the people and city of Harrisburg will emerge from this calamity stronger than before. I would not have believed it, if I had not seen and heard it with my own eyes and ears. My jaw is still bouncing off the floor. This spirit of defiance is pervasive in this once great nation. Now, this spirit has been demonstrated down at the local city level.

 

Folks, unless Americans repent, TODAY, from this evil spirit and all our sins, from the lowliest citizen to the highest official in the land, we are doomed. Yahweh has gently, and mercifully, given us warning sign judgments from 9/11 forward. If America continues to walk stiff-necked, in pride and arrogance of heart, like our ancient Israeli brothers, our nation will cease to exist. We may be destroyed, or just sold into slavery. Isaiah 9:11-12, “Therefore Yahweh shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; 12The Syrians before, and the Philistines (Palestinians) behind; and they shall devour Israel (to include America and Great Britain today) with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.” Yahweh may not use natural disasters to totally destroy us, we have plenty of human enemies that would love to see America destroyed, along with Israel. We have thrown Yahweh out of our schools, He will blow our schools apart, with tornados, hurricanes, terrorists, school shooters. Yahweh has more, and more powerful, weapons at His disposal than we do. It’s foolish to fight against Him. It’s best to love Him and obey Him.

 

Ezekiel chapter 5 is the word for today, “And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber’s razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then take thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair. 2Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them. 3Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts. 4Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel (to include America and Great Britain today).

5Thus saith Sovereign Yahweh; This is Jerusalem (Washington D.C., London today): I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her. 6And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them. 7Therefore thus saith Sovereign Yahweh; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you; 8Therefore thus saith Sovereign Yahweh; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations. 9And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations. 10Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds. 11Wherefore, as I live, saith Sovereign Yahweh; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity. 12A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them. 13Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I Yahweh have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them. 14Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by. 15So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment unto the nations that are round about thee, when I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I Yahweh have spoken it. 16When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread: 17So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I Yahweh have spoken it.”

 

Does that “a third part” sound familiar? That sounds like the language used in the Book of Revelation. Friends, if Yahweh wills it, 100 million Americans will soon die from pestilence and famine, 100 million Americans will soon die from war (includes riots and terrorist attacks), and 100 million Americans will be scattered as refugees and slaves across the globe. I don’t know if you’re getting this understanding, we are out of time. It’s way past time to obtain and maintain a spirit of repentance, not defiance. Defying the calamities that Yahweh brings on us, instead of realizing it is Yahweh calling to us in love to repent, shows we are still in spiritual, as well as physical, danger. Yahweh, because He is the ultimate good, will ultimately crush all evil. That is what Yeshua’s second coming is about, partially. We are all evil and in need of repentance and washing in the blood of Yeshua. Yahweh is looking for His people to repent first. He promises to heal our land, if we, as Yahweh’s people, will repent and pray and seek Him. We have to turn from our wicked ways and back to Him, or we fry like the rest.
