UNIVERSE LOCKED – SECOND TUMBLER

UNIVERSE LOCKED – SECOND TUMBLER

Luke 13:23-28, “Someone said to him (Yeshua), “Lord, are only a few people to be saved?” So he said to them, 24 “Struggle to enter through the narrow door, because I say to you, many will want to enter, but will not be able to enter. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and locks the door, then you will stand outside and knock at the door and say, ‘Lord, Lord, let us in.’ And he will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you or where you are from.’ 26 Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank in front of you and you taught in our streets.’ 27 But he will reply, ‘I say to you, I do not know where you are from. Get away from me, you evildoers!’ 28 There will be crying and the grinding of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in Yahweh’s kingdom, but you are thrown out.”

 

You all know what a lock tumbler is: Wordweb states it is: “A movable obstruction in a lock that must be adjusted to a given position (as by a key) before the bolt can be thrown.”; Dictionary.com states: “(in a lock) any locking or checking part that, when lifted or released by the action of a key or the like, allows the bolt to move.” Right now, even in these endtime days we live in, the universe is still moving around, like a tumbler in a lock, but soon, very soon, Yahweh will lock this Universe into a beautiful state of his glory. A state we look forward to with every fiber of our being. Will you be locked in or locked out? Make your choice today, choose life.

Well, folks, I thought I was finished with this Universe Locked theme, but my wife, Marner, read Isaiah 66:22-23 the other day and noticed right away that Yahweh and Isaiah separated the Sabbath from the lunar months. Let’s read it: “For just as the new heavens and the new earth that I will make will remain before me, declares Yahweh, so your descendants will remain, and your name will remain. 23 From one new moon to the next lunar month, and from one Sabbath to the next Sabbath, all people will come to bow down to me in worship, says Yahweh.” Yahweh is looking forward to our worship when He and Yeshua are tabernacling with us here on earth.

Isaiah understood the biblical lunar calendar and we can see that he understands the meaning of Strong’s word for moon, # 3391, yerach, that means LUNATION! Isaiah quotes Yahweh himself saying that the lunar calendar goes from one lunar conjunction to the next lunar conjunction! Yahweh through Isaiah virtually wrote the definition for the word lunation right there in verse 23. Look how Yahweh and Isaiah compare with Strong’s definition for yerach: “a lunation, that is, month” Lunation’s dictionary definitions from: Wordweb = “The period between successive new moons”; from Dictionary.com = “the period of time from one new moon to the next; a lunar month.” Yahweh, Isaiah and Dr. Strong agree that a lunation defines a lunar month. Verse 23 is a sure confirmation to our understanding of the biblical lunar calendar revealed in Exodus 2:2 and other places. Isaiah read and knew the Torah of Moses. Isaiah lived and prophesied about 750 years after Moses, per Isaiah 1:1. Isaiah possibly lived through the calendar change caused by the Mars flyby in 701 BC, along with King Hezekiah. Please read all of Isaiah, Chapter 66.

Either when Yeshua returns, or 1,000 years later, Yahweh is going to lock the universe into a glorious eternal state. A state we can only imagine today. But according to verse 23, there will still be a moon revolving around the earth, going through its lunations. At the same time, Yahweh’s followers will still be counting the days of the weekly Sabbath cycle. Notice how Yahweh through Isaiah separates the concept of the lunar month from that of the weekly Sabbath cycle. They are two distinct and different aspects of Yahweh’s biblical calendar. The moon determines the months, as we’ve learned before, and counting 24-hour days, 1 through 7, determines our week. Work six days and take the seventh-day Sabbath off and rest. Yahweh through Isaiah does not even hint at the heresy that the Sabbath is tied to the lunar month, or that the lunar month determines a Sabbath, which is a false teaching and doctrine. Yahweh’s biblical principles and biblical lunar calendar will stand for all eternity. And look right there in verse 23, the weekly seventh-day Sabbath will last for all eternity also! Are you ready for a real change? I hope so. Repent of your sin and give your life to Yeshua today. Don’t get locked out!!

UNIVERSE LOCKED – Evidence for a Biblical Lunar Calendar

UNIVERSE LOCKED

Evidence for a Biblical Lunar Calendar

Gene Benjamin II

June 18, 2018

All Scriptures taken from the SOMB, the Son Of Man Bible, original work at www.unfoldingword.org. I used their Unlocked Literal Bible to make the SOMB.bblx for e-Sword Bible program. Sola Scriptura, my friends, Sola Scriptura!

Let’s look at the Holy Scriptures only for our doctrine of a biblical calendar. I had never noticed the word “chadash” before. Chadash, as “new”, Strong’s number 2319 only means new, but it’s root word is also Chadash, number 2318, that also means to renew or make new, which is exactly what Chodesh is, Strong’s number 2320 (TWOT1 # 613b), and it comes from this same root Chadash. These are LUNAR or MOON renewal terms in and of themselves, in their most basic meaning and usage.

But even more exciting than these terms is the Aramaic word YERACH or YERAH, Strong’s number 3391 (TWOT1 # 913b), which in its basic, foundational, plain literal meaning is LUNATION!! Lunation means the period between successive new moons. It literally means one lunar month. Merriam-Webster Dictionary, today, defines lunation as the period of time averaging 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.8 seconds elapsing between two successive new moons. But we already know from Noah and his Great Flood that back in Genesis, the lunation was EXACTLY 30 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds, or a perfect 360-day lunar, and a perfect 360-day solar, year. I believe the sun and moon were perfectly synchronized at the 360-day year. The planet Mars flyby in 701 BC altered the perfect biblical calendar to what we have today, a 365 1/4 day solar year and a 354 day lunar year. (http://www.creationism.org/patten/PattenMarsEarthWars/PattenMEW11.htm; http://www.trustbible.com/planetx.htm) But don’t despair, from prophecy, we know another planetary flyby or earth strike will re-adjust the earth calendar back to the perfect 360-day biblical calendar for at least the final seven year Tribulation. You can research that for yourself in Genesis, Daniel, and Revelation.

Complete or full month, or month of days, is just one phase of YERACH’S meanings, no pun intended, but this Hebrew word basicly means the complete lunar cycle, the moon’s lunation! Now here’s a word, YERACH, Strong’s number 3391, that we need to take a serious look at! Since this word is found in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and Dictionary, that means it’s found in the Holy Scriptures. This is a word we need to investigate only in the Holy Scriptures. We need not look at outside sources at all, but only look right inside our Holy Bible! We build our teachings, beliefs, doctrines, and theology from the Holy Scriptures, not from other books or websites, no matter how intriguing they may be. Sola Scriptura!

Of course, you know one of my primary ways of studying words is to find its “first use” in the Scriptures. Using this Bible study principle can save you a lot of headaches down the road of your believing life. So, where is this word found first? How about right at Moses’ birth, 80 years (c. 1563 BC) BEFORE the Exodus (c. 1484 BC)! Exodus 2:2, “The woman (Moses’ Mom) became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a healthy boy, she hid him for three lunations.” Well, there it is, folks, three lunar months tracked and counted by the Hebrew slaves in Egypt. The ancient Hebrew Israelites were enslaved in a sun-god worshiping nation, and were following a LUNAR calendar, the biblical lunar calendar, eighty years BEFORE the Exodus from Egypt. Folks, that demonstrates that the Hebrew children of Israel were fiercely holding to their beliefs in Yahweh, his word, and his biblical lunar calendar! Folks, that’s about 3,580 years ago, long before the aprocryphal books were ever written.

Let’s look at another example of the use of Yerah in Deuteronomy 21:13, the law regarding marrying female captives: “Then she will take off the clothes she was wearing when she was taken captive and she will remain in your house and mourn for her father and her mother a full lunation. After that you may make love to her and be her husband, and she will be your wife.” This is that month of days meaning, a lunation of days, the full lunar cycle, one lunar month!! And notice that this is Moses teaching the Torah to the children of Israel. I believe Moses learned the biblical lunar calendar from Yahweh and his Mom.

Another example is in Deuteronomy 33:13-15, where Moses is blessing the children of Joseph, “About Joseph, Moses said: May his land be blessed by Yahweh with the precious things of heaven, with the dew, and with the deep that lies beneath. 14 May his land be blessed with the precious things of the harvest of the sun, with the precious things of the produce of the lunations, 15 with the finest things of the ancient mountains, and with the precious things of the everlasting hills.” Food plants need the sun, but it is also important for the farmer or vinedresser to know how many lunations, or months, a plant needs for its growth and life cycle. That helps to know when to plant and harvest. Moses understood the agricultural importance of the moon’s lunations in relation to the harvest of crops! We must live by an agriculturally adjusted, luni-solar calendar. I will not delve further into that topic in this video.

The word is used twice, by none other than the wisest man in all of human history, King Solomon, in 1 Kings 6:37-38, “The foundation of the temple of Yahweh was laid in the fourth year (c. 967), in the lunation (yerach) of Ziv. 38 In the eleventh year (c. 960 BC), in the lunation of Bul, which is the eighth lunar month (chodesh), the temple was finished in all its parts and conforming to all its specifications. Solomon took seven years to build the temple.” Friends, sit back and re-read this passage as many times as you need to and understand that the wisest king in all of human history FOLLOWED A LUNAR CALENDAR WHILE BUILDING THE TEMPLE OF ALMIGHTY YAHWEH!!! Notice, Solomon uses the word year and lunation in the same sentence. We know our year is defined as one complete revolution of the earth around the sun. It doesn’t really matter how many lunar months are placed inside of a solar year. You could have 12 or 13 lunar months inside of a solar year. It does not matter, because Yahweh’s Feasts are held in the First, Third, and Seventh lunar months of the year. We can easily adjust the lunar calendar by intercalating a 13th month at the end of the lunar year to keep in sync with the solar seasons of the year. Meditate on 1 Kings 6:37-38 for as long as you need to, but let it soak into your spirit and help you settle your biblical calendar theology!

Our next example is in 1 Kings 8:2, “All the men of Israel assembled before King Solomon at the feast, in the lunation (yerach) of Ethanim, which is the seventh lunar month (chodesh).” So, what does this verse reveal to us? It shows that the most-wise King Solomon celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles, one of Yahweh’s commanded feasts, ACCORDING TO THE LUNAR CALENDAR! This was the day King Solomon had the priests place the Ark of the Covenant into the new Holy of Holies, the most holy place in the inner Temple. Are you now getting a biblical lunar calendar understanding? Notice, this has nothing to do with bowing down and worshiping the moon, it’s about using the moon to mark time, as your personal and national calendar! It’s not about using the moon to prognosticate about the future, it’s about using the moon as the timepiece Yahweh created it to be, so we can CELEBRATE HIS FEASTS ON HIS BIBLICAL LUNAR CALENDAR.

Our next example is found in 2 Kings 15:13, “Shallum son of Jabesh began to reign in the thirty-ninth year (c. 752 BC) of Uzziah king of Judah, and he reigned only one lunation in Samaria.” This is another example of the lunar month of days meaning for the word yerach. Shallum only survived as king in the northern kingdom of Israel for one lunar month, 30 days. Verse 14 shows that Menahem killed him and became king of Israel in his place. Notice, this is still before the Mars flyby and several hundred years BEFORE any Pharisee or Sadducee drew his first breath. The official civil government of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel marked events of the kings of Israel according to the biblical lunar calendar. This is what the Holy Bible reveals to us, not what any outside source teaches us.

Our next example is found in Job 3:6, Job is lamenting his own birth, “As for that night, may thick darkness seize it. May it not rejoice among the days of the year; may it not come into the number of the lunations.” Job was a famous, powerful, successful and influential believer in his day. He understood that the solar year and the lunar month were timepiece measurements of the days of his life. I believe he was wishing that he had never been born. He was in a very rough time of his life. Job counted his months by the moon, plain and simple.

Our next example is found in Job 7:3 where Job continues to speak about his seemingly hopeless life, “so I have been made to endure lunations of misery; I have been given trouble-filled nights.” Job’s plight did not last just a few days, it was months and lunar months of affliction.

Our next example is found in Job 29:2-3, where he summarizes his defense, “Oh, that I were as I was in the past lunations when the Almighty cared for me, 3 when his lamp shined on my head, and when I walked through darkness by his light.” Do you see Job’s play on words? The moon gave Job light at night; just as Yahweh always had been Job’s spiritual light; he wants to believe Yahweh is still his light! Of course, Yahweh is our eternal spiritual light. Isaiah and Revelation reveal he will also be our “physical” light in the kingdom, though, on this side of eternity, we may not understand what that reality will be like.

Our next example is from Job 39:2, where Yahweh himself answers and grills Job, “Can you count the lunations that they (goats and deer) gestate? Do you know the time when they bear their young?” What a humbling experience for Job. May we all humble ourselves like Job, before our great and awesome Yahweh, our Creator and King. Do you see it? Here, YAHWEH HIMSELF speaks of his very own personal biblical lunar calendar!!! Yahweh knows Job must use the biblical lunar calendar to count the lunar months of a mammal’s gestation period. Yahweh’s biblical lunar calendar was not and is not a one-time fluke in Scripture!! It is the calendar of the Bible and of our natural world.

Now, I’m going to skip ahead to Zechariah 11:8, “In one lunation I destroyed the three shepherds, for I ran out of patience with them, and they hated me as well.” Read the whole Chapter 11, this is Yeshua speaking in the Old Covenant, which on that day, he was breaking the covenant between himself and Israel! This is not a month of days meaning, exactly. The word one is echad, so this may be saying He destroyed the three shepherds in one lunar month or in the first lunar month of the year, either translation would work.

Now, let’s go back and look at our final example in Isaiah 60:19-20, where we see the future glory of Israel, “The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon (yareach) shine on you; but Yahweh will be your everlasting light, and your Almighty your glory. 20 Your sun will no longer set, nor will your lunation wane to conjunction; for Yahweh will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be ended.”

I was so excited when I came to this verse, I couldn’t sleep! Read verse 20 carefully. Research it for yourself. I truly believe Yahweh revealed to me the final locked state of the physical universe, when He reveals Yeshua to the world. There is a day coming when the sun will no longer set and the moon will no longer go through its lunations! When Yahweh and the Lamb are the light of the world, literally fulfilled at the end of days. This appears to be after the Great White throne judgment of Revelation 20. Revelation 21:22-24, “I saw no temple in the city, for Lord Yahweh El Shaddai and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or the moon in order to shine on it, because the glory of Yahweh shone on it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 The ethno-linguistic nations will walk by the light of that city. The kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.”

That is the day we’re all looking for, when the universe will be locked in Yahweh’s glory forever! I chose the phrase in Isaiah 60:20, “wane to conjunction”, because the Hebrew word is “acaph” and can mean to take away, remove, withdraw, perish. When does the moon appear to do these things? When it goes into conjunction, once every lunation! One day soon, the moon’s lunations will cease. It will be locked into position for all eternity. There will be no more need for lunations, as we need now. We need the lunations now to know when to celebrate Yahweh’s feasts. Then, Yeshua himself will lead us to celebrate feasts when Yahweh desires! Until that glorious day, let’s use Yahweh’s biblical lunar calendar, so we can celebrate with him as biblically accurately as we can.

Now, for fun, let’s switch back to understanding how the Hebrews would have stated the “New Moon”. Contrary to what some teach, the Hebrews would not have said “Yareach Chadash” or “Chadash Yareach”, for New Moon. How do I know this? Well, thanks to my buddy priest and prophet Ezekiel, we know how the Hebrews stated the beginning of the New Year. Look at Ezekiel 40:1, “In the twenty-fifth year (c. 574 BC, Ezekiel’s Jubilee year) of our captivity at the beginning of the year (Rosh Hashanah) on the tenth of the lunar month, in the fourteenth year after the city was captured, on that same day, the hand of Yahweh was upon me and he took me there.” As far as I know, from my research, this is the ONLY place in the Tanach, the Old Covenant, where the phrase Rosh Hashanah is found. I found this phrase about nine years ago while doing my biblical chronology studies. This verse is locked in and synchronized with Ezekiel 1:1, the 30th year of the Jubilee Cycle! Ezekiel 40:1 reveals Ezekiel’s Jubilee year in 574 BC!

Anyway, notice Ezekiel did not write chadash hashanah, but rosh hashanah, the beginning of the year. Is it possible we could find the new moon expressed with similar language? Why YES! Yes we can! Most biblical calendar students begin their teachings with Exodus 12:2, so let’s go there first, “For you, this new moon will be the start of lunar months, the first new moon of the year to you.” That phrase, “start of lunar months” is in Hebrew, “Rosh Chodesh”!!! Whoa, is that beautiful or what!?! Moses, the great prophet like Ezekiel, uses Rosh instead of Chadash! So, is that the only example? No, we can find a couple more, at least.

Numbers 10:10, “Also, at the times of celebration, both your appointment calendar festivals and at the beginning of the lunar months, you must blow the trumpets in honor of your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices for your fellowship offerings. These will act as a reminder of you to me, your Almighty. I am Yahweh your Almighty.” Again, that is the phrase Rosh Chodesh!! The Hebrews said Rosh Chodesh, not Chadash Yareach!

Numbers 28:11, “At the beginning of each lunar month, you must offer a burnt offering to Yahweh. You must offer two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old without blemish.” Again, the phrase in Hebrew is “Rosh Chodesh”!!! You could just as easily translate these phrases as beginning of the new month(s), or beginning of the month(s), but I use lunar month(s) for emphasis. I do not see a solar calendar taught in the Scriptures as Yahweh’s biblical appointed Feasts calendar. It’s just not there in the Holy Scriptures, but a biblical lunar calendar is repeatedly taught and revealed.

Now, Psalm 104:19, makes more sense to me than it ever has: “He made the moon to mark the appointment calendar festivals; the sun knows its time for setting.” Now, this verse is a great confirmation verse to the biblical lunar calendar. Before today, to me at least, this verse stood out as a kind of oddity in the Scriptures. I had not found other Scriptures to help confirm and tie down a biblical lunar calendar. Well, I’m really convinced now, and I hope you are too. Yahweh did not have to create a moon and hang it out their in space just for us to use as a biblical calendar maker and marker, but he chose to do it, out of love for us. Is he the coolest Almighty Divine One or what? Yes, yes he is.

DANIEL PREDICTS ABOMINATION OF ANTIOCHUS IV EPIPHANES

DANIEL PREDICTS ABOMINATION

OF ANTIOCHUS IV EPIPHANES

400 YEARS BEFORE THE EVENT

All Scripture is taken from the Son Of Man Bible, SOMB.bblx, e-Sword computer Bible module, available from www.biblesupport.com, do a search for “Unlocked Literal Bible 9” and also from www.wordmodules.com, do a search for “Son Of Man Bible”. The Son Of Man Bible is available on PC, Apple, Android, and Linux.

Daniel dates his Chapter Eight prophecies for us in Daniel 8:1, “In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar (approximately 549 BC), I, Daniel, had a vision appear to me, after the one that appeared to me at first.”

The angel plainly tells Daniel that the vision of the ram and goat is for the time of the end, Daniel 8:17,19,So he came near where I stood. When he came, I was frightened and prostrated myself on the ground. He said to me, “Understand, son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end.” 19 He said, “See, I will show you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time for the end.”

The prophecy we are interested in is the 2,300 evening-morning prophecy, Daniel 8:9-14,Out of one of them grew another horn, little at first, but which became very large in the south, in the east, and in the land of beauty. 10 It became so large as to engage in war with the army of heaven. Some of that army and some of the stars were thrown down to the earth, and it trampled on them. 11 It made itself to be as great as the commander of the army. It took away from him the regular (twice-daily) burnt offering, and the place of his sanctuary was polluted. 12 Because of rebellion, the army will be given over to the goat’s horn, and the (twice-daily) burnt offering will be stopped. The horn will throw truth down to the ground, and it will succeed in what it does. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking and another holy one answering him, “How long will these things last, this vision about the burnt offering, the sin that brings destruction, the handing over of the sanctuary, and heaven’s army being trampled on?” 14 He said to me, “It will last for 2,300 evenings and mornings. After that the sanctuary will be put right.” (2,300 twice-daily sacrifices = 1,150 days, see Exodus 29:38-42)”

The fact that it’s exactly 1,150 days being spoken about is nailed firmly down by Fred P. Miller in his article at: http://www.moellerhaus.com/2300.html and by Rick Lanser, MDiv, of Associates for Biblical Research, in his article at: http://www.biblearchaeology.org/post/2018/04/30/Understanding-the-2300-e2809cEvenings-and-Morningse2809d-of-Daniel-814.aspx

1,150 days is the length of the prophetic event that was to happen in the future from Daniel, not a calculated duration of time from Daniel’s time to the beginning of some future prophetic event. As Mr. Miller and Mr. Lanser point out, the exact begin and end dates of Daniel’s abomination event is known from the Book of Maccabees. About 400 years after Daniel received this vision the abomination event of Antiochus IV Epiphanes began exactly on Kislev 15, 167 BC (Jewish year 3595), according to 1 Maccabees 1:54, “On the fifteenth day of Chislev in the (Seleucid) year 145 the king built the appalling abomination on top of the altar of burnt offering; and altars were built in the surrounding towns of Judah” Daniel proclaimed 400 years earlier that this event would last exactly 2,300 evening-morning, or 1,150 days and ended on Kislev 25, 164 BC (Jewish year 3598), according to 1 Maccabees 4:52-53, “On the twenty-fifth of the ninth month, Chislev, in the (Seleucid) year 148 they rose at dawn (53) and offered a lawful sacrifice on the new altar of burnt offering which they had made.”

I’ve written previously establishing that Seleucid year 145 is equal to 167 BC, so I won’t elaborate on that again.

We see that there are 3, 360-day years, from 167 to 164 BC, plus the 10 days from the 15th to the 25th of the same month, plus 2 intercalary 30-day months to keep the seasons in line with the sun, giving us exactly 1,150 days of Daniel’s prophecy, calculated as follows:

 

3 X 360-day years = 1,080 days

plus 10 days + 10 days

plus 2 30-day months + 60 days

TOTAL = 1,150 days

Never doubt that the Holy Scriptures and Yahweh’s holy angels and prophets prophesy exactly. There is no doubt, there is no error in Bible prophecy, only precise accuracy. You can trust Yahweh’s Word, so you know you can trust Yahweh.

No one, including Daniel, understood the vision in Daniel’s day. Most humans today still don’t understand Daniel Chapter 8 visions and prophecy. Mr. Miller and Mr. Lanser mention that Daniel predicted a Greek calendar hundreds of years ahead of time, but I want you to know Yahweh is Hebrew, the angel is Hebrew, Daniel is Hebrew, the Maccabees were Hebrew. The Maccabees hated the Greeks for trying to destroy Jews and Judaism. None of these people are interested in a Greek 360-day calendar. The prophecy and the days calculations also work in the Hebrew prophetic 360-day biblical calendar. All the prophecies in the Bible can be understood according to Yahweh’s biblical Hebrew calendar.

Daniel 8:26, “The vision about the evenings and mornings that has been told is true. But seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future.” Antiochus IV Epiphanes, as a type of anti-messiah may have fulfilled Daniel’s 2,300 evening-morning prophecy back in 167-164 BC, but we understand from the New Covenant that we will see a similar abomination of desolation again in the end times that we live in. Daniel chapter 8 is very clear that his prophesies concern the end of time, not just Antiochus’ time. Yeshua predicted it in Matthew 24:15, “Therefore, when you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy of holies” (let the reader understand),”

Paul understood Yeshua’s prophecy,

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4,”Now about the coming of our Lord Yeshua Messiah and our being gathered together to be with him: We ask you, brothers, 2 that you not be easily disturbed or troubled, either by a spirit, by a message, or by a letter that seems to be coming from us, to the effect that the day of Messiah has already come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not come until after the falling away comes, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction. 4 This is he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called Yahweh or that is worshiped. As a result, he as Yahweh sits in the temple of Yahweh and exhibits himself as Yahweh.”

I encourage you to read all of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians. The end rapidly approaches. Are you ready to meet your Maker, Yahweh? Repent of your sins, ask Yeshua to save you today.

 

At this very moment we are waiting for Daniel’s Chapter 8 war between the West and Iran/Iraq. We’ve already whipped Iraq, now we (America, Israel, and our allies) will whip Iran, just before America is destroyed. There is no time to waste, repent of your sin today, this second.

Passover 2018

Passover 2018

The Next Memorial Day

All Scripture is taken from my new Son Of Man Bible, available free at www.biblesupport.com. Do a search for “Unlocked Literal Bible 9” and the SOMB module will appear in the download list.

There are three Feasts of Yahweh coming up in possibly a few days, depending on whether or not our spotters find aviv barley in the land of Israel before the end of this 12th lunar month. If they do, we will celebrate Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, and Feast of First Fruits at the end of March and first week of April. If they don’t find aviv barley in Israel, we will celebrate these three commanded feasts at the end of April.

The first feast is Passover: Leviticus 23:4-5, “These are the appointment calendar festivals of Yahweh, the holy assemblies that you must announce at their appointed times: 5 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight, is Yahweh’s Passover.” The first month being the first lunar month of the Hebrew religious calendar. Passover is the memorial feast honoring Yeshua as our Lamb of Yahweh that takes away the sin of the world.

The second feast is Unleavened Bread: Leviticus 23:6-8, “On the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread for Yahweh. For seven days you must eat unleavened bread. 7 The first day you must set apart to gather together; you will not do any of your regular work. 8 You will present a food offering to Yahweh for seven days. The seventh day is an assembly set apart to Yahweh, and on that day you must not do any regular work.’” Unleavened Bread remembers the forced march of the Hebrew children of Israel when they escaped from Egypt and went to the Red Sea, headed to Mount Sinai. They had to leave in a hurry, so they could not take time to let their bread rise before baking it. That’s why we eat unleavened bread during this 8-day week.

The third feast occurs during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, it is called the Feast of Firstfruits: Leviticus 23:10-11, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, ’When you have come into the land that I will give you, and when you reap its (barley) harvest, then you must bring a sheaf of its firstfruits to the priest. 11 He will raise the sheaf before Yahweh and present it to him, for it to be accepted on your behalf. It is on the day after the Sabbath (that occurs during Unleavened Bread) that the priest will raise it and present it to me.” This Feast of Firstfruits is the proper celebration and memorial of the resurrection of Yeshua from the grave. Yeshua rose to the Father in heaven and presented Himself as the first of the firstfruits offerings, then he also presented to the Father, those that he resurrected when he rose. We do not celebrate a fertility goddess, astarte, or bunnies or eggs or any of that pagan stuff. Yeshua rose at sundown at the end of Sabbath, just in time to be our Firstfruits offering!!

 

There is no such thing as Yeshua’s last supper, apart from the Passover seder meal. Yeshua celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples. Matthew 26:17-19, “Now on the first day of (the Feast of) unleavened bread the disciples came to Yeshua and said, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover meal (seder)?” 18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover (seder meal) at your house with my disciples.”’” 19 The disciples did as Yeshua directed them, and they prepared the Passover meal.”

 

Mark 14:12-16, “On the first day of unleavened bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb, his disciples said to him, “Where do you want us to go to prepare, so you may eat the Passover meal?” 13 He sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the city, and a man bearing a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. 14 Where he enters a house, follow him in and say to the owner of that house, ‘The Teacher says, “Where is my guest room where I will eat the Passover with my disciples?”’ 15 He will show you a large furnished upper room that is ready. Make the preparations for us there. 16 The disciples left and went to the city. They found everything as he had said to them, and they prepared the Passover meal (seder).”

 

Luke 22:1, 7-13, “Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread was approaching, which is called the Passover. . . . 7 The day of unleavened bread came, on which the Passover lamb must be sacrificed. 8 Yeshua sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare for us the Passover meal, so that we may eat it.” 9 They asked him, “Where do you want us to make preparations?” 10 He answered them, “Listen, when you have entered the city, a man bearing a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that he goes into. 11 Then say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room, where I will eat the Passover with my disciples?”’ 12 He will show you a large furnished upper room. Make the preparations there. 13 So they went, and found everything as he had said to them. Then they prepared the Passover meal.”

 

John 13:1-2, “Now it was before the Festival of the Passover. Yeshua knew that his hour had come to go out of this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 And during the Passover seder meal, the devil had already by now put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Yeshua.”

 

We don’t sacrifice a lamb today, because Yeshua has once for all time been sacrificed for us. Yeshua has fulfilled the Feast of Passover and He is our Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits offering. Let’s see how the early congregation celebrated this feast as explained by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 11:17-34, “But in the following instructions, I do not praise you. For when you come together, it is not for the better but for the worse. 18 For in the first place, I hear that when you come together in the congregation, there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. 19 For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may be recognized among you. 20 For when you come together, it is not the Lord’s Passover seder meal that you eat. 21 When you eat, each one eats his own food before the others have their meal. One is hungry, and another becomes drunk. 22 Do you not have houses to eat and to drink in? Do you despise the congregation of Yahweh and humiliate those who have nothing? What should I say to you? Should I praise you? I will not praise you for this! 23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you, that Lord Yeshua, on the night when he was betrayed, took unleavened bread. 24 After he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this to remember me.” (Passover is an annual memorial feast) 25 In the same way he took the cup during the seder meal, and he said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it, to remember me.” 26 For once every year when you eat this unleavened bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 27 Whoever, therefore, eats the unleavened bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 Let a person examine himself first, and in this way let him eat of the unleavened bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment to himself. 30 That is why many among you are weak and ill, and some of you have died. 31 But if we examine ourselves, we will not be judged. 32 But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined, so that we may not be condemned along with the world. 33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that when you come together it will not be for judgment. . . .”

 

You may certainly roast a lamb or any other clean meat that you desire and can afford to have at your Passover seder meal. For believers, we know that ham, or pork of any kind and any seafood is out. Only fish with fins and scales can be considered. See Leviticus 11 for the rundown on kosher meats.

 

We celebrate with the right attitude, a humble, repentant and grateful heart. We will be celebrating this Feast for all eternity, so you might as well get used to it now. And remember, Yeshua is currently fasting from this feast and has been for almost 2,000 years. He’s waiting to celebrate with us in his first year back on earth! Matthew 26:26-30, “As they were eating the Passover seder meal, Yeshua took unleavened bread, blessed it, and broke it. He gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat. This is my body.” 27 He took a cup and gave thanks, and gave it to them and said, “Drink it, all of you. 28 For this is my blood of the covenant that is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 But I say to you, I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” 30 When they had sung the hallel (Ps. 113-118), they went out to the Mount of Olives.” They sang multiple hymns, the word for hymn here in verse 30 is plural in the Greek. They sang the Jewish traditional Hallel from Psalm 113-118. They worshiped after their meal, before retiring to the Mount of Olives.

 

Mark 14:25, “Truly I say to you, I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of Yahweh.

 

Luke 22:18, “For I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine again, until the kingdom of Yahweh comes.

 

Folks, the Kingdom of Yahweh is coming to earth quite soon, I believe in the mid 2020s, at least by 2030. You heard my Jubilee teaching. It won’t be long and we will celebrate Passover with our Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, during this next upcoming Jubilee Year! Passover is a memorial feast, but it is also very prophetic. Yeshua promises to return to celebrate with us! I can’t wait.

 

FYI, friends, you can search the internet for Messianic Haggadahs, or the telling, that lays out a full Messianic Passover seder, the order of service. Or, if you write to us, I can email some sample Haggadahs that I’ve collected over the years. Many people write their own, which you can do from these samples. The Jews actually use four cups of wine during the Passover meal. You can celebrate very traditionally, or you can modernize or simplify to your heart’s desire. But as Paul said, 1 Corinthians 5:7-8, “Cleanse yourselves of the old yeast so that you may be new dough, so that you may be unleavened bread. For Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 So let us then celebrate the festival (continuously, annually, forever!), not with the old yeast, the yeast of bad behavior and wickedness. Instead, let us celebrate with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

 

Amen, shalom!

JUBILEE PER EZEKIEL

JUBILEE PER EZEKIEL

I recently mentioned that I hoped to talk/write about the Jubilee again soon. Well, this post is the next installment on Jubilee. Here’s the initial teaching in Leviticus 25:8-22, “You must count off seven Sabbaths of years, that is, seven times seven years, so that there will be seven Sabbaths of years, totaling forty-nine years. 9 Then you must blow a loud trumpet everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you must blow a trumpet throughout all your land. 10 You must set apart the fiftieth year to Yahweh and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It will be a Jubilee for you, in which property and slaves must be returned to their families. 11 The fiftieth year will be a Jubilee for you. You must not plant or conduct an organized harvest. Eat whatever grows by itself, and gather the grapes that grow on the unpruned vines. 12 For it is a Jubilee, which will be holy for you. You must eat the produce that grows by itself out of the fields. 13 You must return everyone to his own property in this year of Jubilee. 14 If you sell any land to your neighbor or buy any land from your neighbor, you must not cheat or wrong each other. 15 If you buy land from your neighbor, consider the number of years and crops that can be harvested until the next Jubilee. Your neighbor selling the land must consider that also. 16 A larger number of years until the next Jubilee will increase the value of land, and a smaller number of years until the next Jubilee will decrease the value, because the number of harvests the land will produce for the new owner is related to the number of years before the next Jubilee. 17 You must not cheat or wrong one another; instead, you must honor your Almighty, for I am Yahweh your Almighty. 18 Therefore, you must obey my decrees, keep my laws, and carry them out. Then you will live in the land in safety. 19 The land will yield its produce, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety. 20 You might say, “What will we eat during the seventh year? Look, we cannot plant or gather our produce.” 21 I will command my blessing to come upon you in the sixth year, and it will produce harvest enough for three years. 22 You will plant in the eighth year and continue to eat from the previous years’ produce and the stored food. Until the harvest of the ninth year comes in, you will be able to eat from the provisions stored in the previous years.

There may be a few other Scriptures that have some teaching on the Jubilee, but Leviticus 25 gets you into the basic teaching. When searching the Scriptures, you don’t see that the Hebrew or Israelite or Jewish people ever really celebrated the Jubilee Year per Yahweh’s command.

Yahweh gave me a revelation about Jubilee back in the spring of 2009, right around the turn of the new year. I was beginning or continuing my studies in sacred chronology, biblical chronology, so I was reading in Ezekiel. Ezekiel 1:1-2,In the thirtieth year (of the 50-year Jubilee Cycle), the fourth month, and the fifth day of the month, it came about that I was living among the captives by the Chebar Canal. The heavens opened, and I saw visions of the Almighty. 2 On the fifth day of that month, it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin,” Notice, I added the phrase in parentheses “of the 50-year Jubilee Cycle”. That is the revelation that exploded in my head when I read “In the thirtieth year” in Ezekiel 1:1. I will try to insert my spreadsheet showing that I have this 5th year of King Jehoiachin tied to 594 BC. Don’t worry about the year at this point, it will be important later. When the Lord showed me that revelation about Ezekiel’s thirtieth year, I was off in the Spirit for several days, I was not useful to anyone for awhile. I was just meditating and contemplating that Scripture for several days. It was an awesome time with Yahweh and Yeshua. Many students and scholars have tried to explain what Ezekiel meant by the 30th year phrase. Some say it was his birth year, some say it was 30 years from finding the Torah scroll during Josiah’s reign, some thought it might be the 30th year of Jeremiah’s ministry. Nothing fits, except the 30th year of the Jubilee Cycle, as I will show you later in this post. It just resonates in your spirit once you get the revelation.

Now you have to get the context of Ezekiel’s life at the time he wrote this Scripture. He was in captivity, in exile, in Babylon, 500 miles from Jerusalem. He had to be discreet in his writings, prophecies, and teachings. If he had said or written something the Babylonians did not like, they would have killed him.

Ezekiel was a priest, the son of a priest, he knew the Jubilee Cycle! He was literally tracking the Jubilee Cycle on his personal calendar. Possibly, that was his job back at the Temple in Jerusalem. We’ll have to ask him when we meet him! This is pretty amazing, considering that no one else in the world seems to have known then when the Jubilee was, or knows today, when the next Jubilee year will occur. The priests were meticulous in their Temple and Feast calendar work. Ezekiel didn’t just mention the Jubilee here in chapter 1 verse 1 and 2, but he mentioned it in several places with Scriptures that we biblical chronologists call synchronizations. Ezekiel literally marked his book with time synchronizations tied to the captivity year of King Jehoiachin. Notice verse two begins in the 5th year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity. That means Ezekiel and King Jehoiachin were taken in what is known as the Second Deportation in 598 BC, or year 1 of King Jehoiachin’s captivity. Go read Esther 2:5-6 and you will see that Mordecai and possibly baby Esther were taken when Ezekiel and King Jehoiachin were taken to Babylon! We won’t pursue that study today, but it’s a fascinating one.

Let’s begin in 598 BC with 2 Chronicles 36:9-10,Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign; he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem. He did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh. 10 In the spring, after the beginning of the new year, King Nebuchadnezzar sent men and brought him to Babylon, with the valuable things from the temple of Yahweh, and made Zedekiah, his relative, king over Judah and Jerusalem.” and let’s continue with 2 Kings 24:12,and Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, his mother, his servants, his princes, and his officers. The king of Babylon captured him in the eighth year of his own reign.”

As we proceed through time, we come to the twelfth year of King Jehoiachin and Ezekiel’s captivity in Ezekiel 33:21,It happened in the twelfth year, on the fifth day of the tenth month of our captivity, that a fugitive came to me from Jerusalem and said, “The city has been captured!”” This verse identifies the first fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in the summer of 587 BC. This messenger, Ezekiel calls him a fugitive, ran or hiked the 500 miles from the summer of 587 BC and reached Ezekiel in the 10th month, on the 5th day with this sad news that Jerusalem had been captured by the Babylonians. This translates to the 37th year of the Jubilee Cycle.

Many students and scholars put the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in 586 BC. I use 587 BC because I read one of the best studies on chronology ever done by one Dr. Rodger C. Young. He proved 587 BC from several directions, so that’s good enough for me. It’s a solidly proven year, so I use it.

Let’s continue down our timeline and see the next Scripture, Ezekiel 40:1,In the twenty-fifth year of our captivity at the beginning of the year (Rosh Hashanah) on the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was captured, on that same day, the hand of Yahweh was upon me and he took me there.” Notice the two synchronizing passages in this one verse. We see the 25th year of their captivity is tied to the 14th year of Jerusalem’s capture and destruction! Counting down our timeline from 587 BC, that brings us to 574 BC, and the 50th year in the Jubilee Cycle, the JUBILEE YEAR!!

Notice that Ezekiel states he’s at the beginning of the year. In the Hebrew, it literally says Rosh Hashanah. When a Jew says Rosh Hashanah on the 10th day of the month (Yom Kippur), he’s identifying the Jubilee year!! A normal Rosh Hashanah is on the first day of the month, so we know Ezekiel is telling us this is the Jubilee Year, and it matches our timeline exactly! This verse, Ezekiel 40:1, is the only verse in the entire Tanach that states the phrase Rosh Hashanah. I cannot find it anywhere else in the Scriptures! That’s not a coincidence, it’s a point Ruach HaKodesh and Ezekiel were trying to make. Ezekiel literally was making the Jubilee announcement in chapter 40, verse 1. It only took about 2,601 years to get that message into my head. This was my 17th attempt at a Jubilee Timeline. 2601 divided by 17 = 153 fishes! (John 21:11) I finally had my net full to the breaking point!

If we follow this timeline down to the 20th century, we see that according to Ezekiel there was no Jubilee in 1947-48, or in 1967-68. No big deal, those were still significant times for Israel. Nobody has known the Jubilee Cycle since Ezekiel’s time.

If we follow this timeline down to the 21st century, we see that the next Jubilee Year will be in 2027 AD. That means Yeshua could possibly return in 2026 AD, a Shemitah year and 49th year in the Jubilee Cycle, to announce the Jubilee year in 2027, the 50th year. That is an exciting prediction. Recently, Tim McHyde of www.escapeallthesethings.com mentioned he’s leaning toward 2026 as a real possibility for Messiah’s return. I hope I live that long, but that is exciting news. It’s exciting because we are coming to the Deadline folks. We’re coming to the end of all these things. My wife keeps saying we’re in the end at the end. Well, she’s my wife, and she has to be right, right?

Time is running out. Get your life right with Yahweh today. Ask him to forgive you for all your sins and to wash you in the blood of Yeshua. Yeshua will be here in the blink of an eye. I pray we will all be ready to meet him!

Building, Developing, Programming the Beast

Building, Developing, Programming the Beast

Let’s begin with Scripture that speaks a little about the Beast: Revelation 13:1-18, “Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads. (Hmm, not human) On its horns were ten crowns, and on each of its heads was a blasphemous name. (Hmm, not human) 2 This beast I saw was like a leopard. Its feet were like a bear’s feet, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. (Hmm, not human) The dragon (Satan) gave his power to it, and his throne, and his great authority to rule. 3 One of the beast’s heads appeared to have been killed, but its fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. (multiple heads, not human. Possible video game creature?) 4 They also worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast. They worshiped the beast, too, and kept saying, “Who is like the beast?” and “Who can fight against it?” (neuter gender in the Greek, it’s an it, not human) 5 The beast was given a mouth that could speak proud words and blasphemies. It was permitted to exercise authority for forty-two months. (most humans are born with a mouth to speak, this is not a human) 6 So the beast opened its mouth to speak blasphemies against Yahweh: blaspheming his name, the place where he lives, and those who live in heaven. (IOT devices, smartphones, and computers can speak today, so who’s teaching them to blaspheme?) 7 The beast was permitted to wage war with the believers and to conquer them. Also, authority was given to it over every tribe, people, language, and ethno-linguistic nation. (Who gives a non-human machine authority to war against believers and non-believers?) 8 All who live on the earth will worship it (neuter gender in Greek, not human), everyone whose name was not written, since the creation of the world, in The Book of Life, which belongs to the Lamb, who had been slaughtered. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him listen. 10 If anyone is to be taken into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with a sword, with a sword he will be killed. Here is a call for patient endurance and faith for those who are holy. 11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, and it spoke like a dragon. (horns, not human) 12 It (probably not human either) exercised all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and it (probably not human either) made the earth and those who live on it worship the first beast, the one whose lethal wound had been healed. (self-healing machine?) 13 It (probably not human either) performed mighty miracles. It (probably not human either) even made fire come down on the earth from heaven in front of people. (given supernatural demonic powers?) 14 By the signs it was permitted to do, it deceived those who lived on the earth. (deceived by an AI machine?) It (probably not human) told them to make an image in honor of the beast that had the sword wound but lived. 15 It (probably not human) was permitted to give breath to the beast’s image so that the image would even speak and cause all who refused to worship the beast to be killed. (A third beast? Wow, hard to wrap my head around breathing machines.) 16 It (probably not human) also forced everyone, unimportant and mighty, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 It was impossible for anyone to buy or sell unless he had the mark of the beast, that is, the number representing its name. (it, not human) 18 This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast. For it is the number of a human being. Its number is 666.” (it, not human)

So, how is it possible for a non-human machine to have a number of a human? Or, better yet, why would a non-human machine have a number of a human? Maybe, the number identifies the programmer of the Algorithm? Or, maybe the machine is so life-like AI, that it has been given citizenship and required to get a human identification number? Saudia Arabia has already done that: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/10/29/saudi-arabia-which-denies-women-equal-rights-makes-a-robot-a-citizen/?utm_term=.d317583ecd08

Up until this week, for 45 years, I’ve believed the Anti-Messiah, the Beast, was a human. I don’t believe that any longer. I believe the Beast will be an AI robotic machine algorithm. It will be nothing more than a computer program, an app. Unfortunately, it will be malware forced onto every digital device in the world and outer space, all connected over the internet. How it beats us up and gets us killed, I’m not sure I want to know. It could be a radio burst or some other 5G type electronic wave emission that fries our brains.

Want to watch a creepy video? Go onto Facebook.com. Search for “Jillian Blackwell PageOne”. Look at the video where she asks the Google Home device to tell her who is Allah, Buddha, Brahman, New Age, Jesus Christ, Jesus. It explains most terms, but doesn’t even understand the terms Jesus Christ or Jesus!! That sounds like blasphemy to me.

You may want to go onto www.trunews.com also and sign up for a free account. They’re over at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Yesterday, on the DirectTV Trunews segment we watched a video clip of a humanistic Israeli guy, Dr. Yuval Harari, telling of the ultimate Algorithm that is being developed that will rule us all. It will have implants into humans to monitor our feelings, thoughts, physical vitals, etc. and tell us more about our selves than we could ever want to know. A real scary fellow. I couldn’t find the clip on their website, so I can’t put a link here. Sorry. Dr. Harari’s talk may eventually show up on his website: http://www.ynharari.com. It may show up on the World Economic Forum’s website eventually also, www.weforum.org.

Folks, they’re building the Beast today, right now, as we breathe. Brainy computer programmers are creating an algorithm that will easily fulfill the requirements of the Revelation 13 Beast. Anyone know a geek with an online identity, or avatar, or call sign, or screen name of 666? You may want to unfriend, or distance yourself from that person, or thing. You may be able to solve the riddle of verse 18, if you can find the name of the lead programmer on this AI ALGORITHM project. There could be hundreds, if not thousands, of programmers writing many algorithms that will be included in the Beast Algorithm. Enjoy the challenge.

 

The Deadline – Part 1

The Deadline – Part 1

All Scripture taken from the Son Of Man Bible, SOMB.bblx e-Sword computer Bible module, available at http://www.biblesupport.com.

All prophecy teachers have a timeline that they teach from and are trying to perfect and workout as the end of time draws ever closer. I can’t see into the future, so I’m not real good at timelines, but I have looked at dozens of men’s timelines over my last 45 years of walking with Yeshua. I must admit that I too have a timeline, but not just one, I have 16 timelines, and not one of them is perfect or very predictive at this time. I haven’t spent time with my chronology timelines lately as I’ve been a little busy publishing three electronic Bibles. Since Yahweh’s year is drawing to a close in a couple months, I’m going to dip my toe in the prophetic waters and look at some scriptures to see if we can discern where we are on His timeline. But did you know Yahweh has a Deadline? Yahweh’s deadline is the Yeshua Advent 2.0. He has to send Yeshua back to earth soon, that’s Yahweh’s Deadline. Yahweh is running out of time. The people on earth are running out of time.

 

If you want to read some solid and well-balanced end-time prophecy studies, may I suggest you read Tim McHyde’s website: www.escapeallthesethings.com. Sign up for his email newsletters. He has a timeline. Another guy that has a good timeline is Stephen Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. You can find Pastor Anderson on youtube.

 

Matthew 24:1-5, “Yeshua went out from the temple and was going on his way. His disciples came to him to point out to him the buildings of the temple. 2 But he answered and said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone will be left on another that will not be torn down.” [prophecy fulfilled in 70 AD] 3 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? What will be the sign of your coming [Yeshua Advent 2.0] and of the end of the age?” 4 Yeshua answered and said to them, “Be careful that no one leads you astray. 5 For many will come in my name. They will say, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will lead many astray.”

1 – We see that the first end-time clue that Yeshua gives is massive worldwide deception. I believe that this has been happening over the past 25-30 years already. The mainstream media has turned from telling news to promoting political propaganda. Everything you hear on mainstream media today is carefully scripted propaganda from the globalist elite. If you don’t believe that, you already prove Yeshua’s first point about the end-times, you are deceived. That word deceive in the Greek is a fascinating word, it has three meanings. It means to cause to roam from safety, truth, and virtue. Over this last generation, the world has clearly roamed from safety in Yahweh, the truth of Yahweh, and the morality of Yahweh. If you don’t believe that, then you are deceived, proving again Yeshua’s first point. All lost pagans are deceived and most of Yahweh’s professing children are deceived. I believe Yeshua’s first point is firmly established in our world today. Deception is the bedrock condition of our society.

2 – So, let’s look at Yeshua’s second point in Matthew 24:6, “You will hear of wars and reports of wars. See that you are not troubled, for these things must happen; but the end is not yet.” Since World War II, the United Nations has caused or been involved in well over 250 wars, in one generation. America has not been involved in or won a war since WWII. Our military is now just a global police force working for the global elite. The world-wide deception runs deep. Our military does not and has not fought for American freedom since World War II. The deception is quite complete. But notice Yeshua said the end is not yet.

So, is there a war or wars that we can look at that will begin the end-times? Several are listed in Scripture. Tim McHyde points to the Psalm 83 war. That is a Middle East war of Muslim nations plotting and attacking Israel. Israel has been in this war for about 70 years already, and it will only get worse. The next round could devastate Israel.

One battle that stands out in this end-time is the Isaiah 17:1 nuking of Damascus. That hasn’t happened yet either, though Damascus today is pretty close to a heap of ruins, due to the Syrian civil war. This could be part of the Psalm 83 war.

Another battle that comes to mind concerns Egypt. See Ezekiel 29:1-16. As far as any historians know, Egypt has never been uninhabited for forty years in all human history, yet. That sounds like nuclear or chemical or biological warfare. That could be part of the Psalm 83 war also.

The Gog Magog wars are coming also, see Ezekiel 38-39. Tim McHyde has a great study on these wars. I tend to agree with Tim in that the Ezekiel 39 war is the soon-coming Gog Magog war. Ezekiel 38 is the Gog Magog war coming 1,000 years from now.

I like the war talked about in Daniel 8. Let’s read through it: . . . Dan 8:1-27, “In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar, I, Daniel, had a vision appear to me, after the one that appeared to me at first. 2 I saw in the vision, as I was looking, that I was in the fortified city of Susa in the province of Elam. I saw in the vision that I was beside the Ulai Canal. 3 I looked up and saw before me a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal. One horn was longer than the other, but the longer one grew more slowly than the shorter and was passed up in length by it. 4 I saw the ram charging west, then north, and then south; no other animal could stand before him. None of them was able to rescue anyone out of his hand. He did whatever he wanted, and he became great. 5 As I was thinking about this, I saw a male goat come from the west, who went across the surface of the whole earth, running fast, not seeming to touch the ground. The goat had a large horn between his eyes. 6 He came to the ram who had two horns, I had seen the ram standing on the bank of the canal, and the goat ran toward the ram in a powerful rage. 7 I saw the goat come close to the ram. He was very angry at the ram, and he hit the ram and broke off its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand before him. The goat knocked him down to the ground and trampled on him. There was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. 8 Then the goat became very large. But when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in its place four other large horns grew up that pointed toward the four winds of the heavens. 9 Out of one of them grew another horn, little at first, but which became very large in the south, in the east, and in the land of beauty. 10 It became so large as to engage in war with the army of heaven. Some of that army and some of the stars were thrown down to the earth, and it trampled on them. 11 Until the commander of the army made himself greater than he (the little horn), and the commander will offer the continual burnt offering, and the commander will perfectly purify the place of his (Messiah’s) sanctuary. 12 Because of rebellion, the army will be given over to the goat’s horn, on account of the continual burnt offering. The horn will throw truth down to the ground, and it will succeed in what it does. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking and another holy one answering him, “How long will these things last, this vision about the burnt offering, the sin that brings destruction, the handing over of the sanctuary, and heaven’s army being trampled on?” 14 He said to me, “It will last for 2,300 evenings and mornings (that’s a little over 6 years and 4 months on a 360 day year/30 day month prophetic calendar). After that the sanctuary will be put right.” 15 When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I tried to understand it. Then there stood before me one who looked like a man. 16 I heard a man’s voice calling between the banks of the Ulai Canal. He said, “Gabriel, help this man understand the vision.” 17 So he came near where I stood. When he came, I was frightened and prostrated myself on the ground. He said to me, Understand, son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end.” 18 When he spoke to me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face to the ground. Then he touched me and made me stand up. 19 He said, See, I will show you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time for the end. 20 As for the ram you saw, the one that had two horns, they are the kings of Media (Iraq) and Persia (Iran). 21 The male goat is the king of Greece (the West). The large horn between his eyes is the first (or #1) king. 22 As for the horn that was broken, in the place of which four others arose, four kingdoms will arise from his ethno-linguistic nation, but not with his great power. 23 At the latter time of those kingdoms, when the transgressors shall have reached their limit, a grim-faced king, one who is very intelligent, will arise. 24 His power will be great, but not by his own power. He will be amazing in what he destroys; he will act and succeed. He will destroy powerful people, people among the holy ones. 25 By his craftiness he will make deceit prosper under his hand. He will become great in his own mind. He will unexpectedly destroy many people. He will even rise up against the King of kings, and he will be broken, but not by any human hand. 26 The vision about the evenings and mornings that has been told is true. But seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future. 27 Then I, Daniel, was overcome and lay weak for several days. Then I got up, and went about the king’s business. But I was appalled by the vision, and there was no one who understood it.”

I certainly don’t understand all of it, either, but we do see that this vision is for the end of time, close to the deadline, at the time of wrath, which occurs at the end of the Great Tribulation. Some nation, like America, is going to fly across the ocean and attack Iraq and Iran. We attacked Iraq in 1990 and again in 2003. Any moment now, we will see a war between America and Iran. Our Western Allies may be involved also. We have seen a partial fulfillment of this vision in our attacks on Iraq. We are waiting for the other combat boot to drop on Iran. Iran is going to do something soon to enrage America. Watch and pray for this war to happen soon.

 

NO COLLAPSE OF THE AMERICAN ECONOMY, UNTIL . . .

NO COLLAPSE OF THE AMERICAN ECONOMY, UNTIL . . .

This is not my revelation. This comes from Tim McHyde over at https://escapeallthesethings.com Tim is the most balanced end times teacher that I’ve found. All Scriptures in this study are taken from my new Son Of Man Bible, e-Sword module.

 

You all are at least a little familiar with Revelation 18, Mystery Babylon’s destruction. We already know that America, the United States of America, is the mystery Babylon spoken of in Revelation 18. Tim has a keen eye in the Scriptures. How many economic collapse stories have you read, seen, or heard over the last 10-20 years? A dozen? A hundred? Well, relax, our economy is not going to completely collapse until the very day of America’s destruction. Where did Tim get his information?

 

Let’s read . . . Revelation 18:11-12, “The merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her (Mystery Babylon, USA), since no one buys her merchandise anymore12merchandise of gold, silver, precious stone, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet, all kinds of scented wood, every vessel of ivory, every vessel made of most precious wood, bronze, iron, marble, 13cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves and human souls.”

 

See that one little timing word, anymore? The merchants of the world will be buying our junk right up until the day of our destruction, and we’ll be buying their junk, right up until that day. The Greek word for anymore is ouketi, which means no longer, no more, no further. So it looks like there is a cutoff day and hour for our economy, but it’s right at the end of America, the day we burn in one hour. So relax. You should have confidence in the economy until the day America burns.

 

The only way you won’t die the same day the Dollar dies, is to come out of America as Yeshua stated up in verses 4-5, “4Then I heard another voice from heaven say, “Come out from her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, and so that you will not receive any of her plagues. 5Her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her evil actions.” One of those two witnesses, or prophets from chapter 11, will show up and tell us where to go and how to get out of America. So relax, and wait for Yahweh to tell you when and how to get out.

 

Did you notice all those items listed that are being bought and sold in our economy until the end? Look at that last phrase, “slaves and human souls”. Well, we know there is a human trafficking problem in every nation of the world today. America has this slave trade going on, but what about human souls? Why is that separated from the word slaves? Who traffics in human souls? Well, if you don’t know, let me tell you plainly, the CHURCHES of America merchandise human souls, making money off of peoples’ religious wants and perceived needs. It always amazes me how specific Yahweh’s word is. Does Yahweh hit the nail on the head or what? I encourage all of you churches to stop making merchandise of Yahweh’s people, it’s going to cost you more than you will want to pay.

 

So, don’t worry about a total economic collapse in America. But instead, meditate, ponder, and pray about your own soul. Will you have the faith and trust in Yeshua to leave America when he tells you when, where, and how to run for cover? Trust Yeshua, don’t sweat it. Trust him to your very end, endure to your very end. That’s all he asks of you. Do not leave America until Yeshua tells you when to, where to, and how to do it.

Hosea’s Third Day Prophecy

Hosea’s Third Day Prophecy

Gene Benjamin II

January 21, 2015 AD

(Updated July 19, 2017)

All Scripture is taken from my new Unlocked Literal Bible – Sacred Name Version, original work available at www.unfoldingword.org.

I’m sure you’ve heard some prophecy preacher or teacher talk about 2 Peter 3:1-4, but let’s review, because I want to show you that things have not stayed the same from the beginning of time: 2 Peter 3:1-4, “Now, I am writing to you, beloved, this second letter as a reminder to stir up your sincere mind, 2 so that you will recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command of our Lord and Savior given through your apostles. 3 Know this first, that mockers will come in the last days. They will mock and proceed according to their own desires. 4 They will say, “Where is the promise of his return? From when our fathers fell asleep, all things have stayed the same, since the beginning of creation.””

Let’s lay just a little groundwork first. Peter teaches us that 1,000 years is as a day to Yahweh and a day is as a thousand years. 2 Peter 3:8, “It should not escape your notice, beloved, that one day with Yahweh is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.” Peter got that concept from a prayer of Moses in Psalm 90:4, “For a thousand years in your sight are as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.” So, let’s get that in our thinking first. One thousand human years is one day in the Heavenly Kingdom of Yahweh.

Another concept we need to understand from Scripture is that Yahweh’s calendar is based on a 30 day month, 360 day year. Read the story of Noah to confirm that, and the Book of Daniel and Revelation. The 42 months, 3 ½ years, and 1,260 days of the Great Tribulation all prove a 30 day month and 360 day year. Yahweh does not live by the Catholic Gregorian solar calendar, He lives by His own biblical calendar. So, at any time we expect an endtime astronomical event to adjust our calendar back to a 30 day month and 360 day year.

Another concept that many of us prophecy students adher to is that of the week of 7,000 years of human history. Each 1,000 years is a kingdom day in the human week of biblical existence. I believe we’ve come to the end of the 6th day and are entering the 7th day of the Millennial Kingdom and soon the reign of Yeshua on earth. The last 6,000 years of human government is coming to an end, and Yahweh’s 7th day of rest for 1,000 years with Yeshua on the throne in Jerusalem is soon to occur. Believers, it’s time to enter into His rest!!

In regards to Hosea’s third day prophecy: Hosea 6:1-2, “Come, let us return to Yahweh. For he has torn us to pieces, but he will heal us; he has injured us, but he will bandage our wounds. 2 After two days he will revive us; he will raise us up on the third day, and we will live before him. I want to share with you what Yahweh showed me a few years ago, but first a comment on the calculations. 2017 – 30 = 1,987 years have passed since Yeshua’s resurrection and ascension. So if Yahweh gives Israel 13 more years, that’ll bring us to 2029/2030. The calculations are correct, but Yahweh doesn’t use a Gentile calendar. Think this through, according to Hosea 6:1-2, we’ll be resurrected on day 3, not on day 2, so we cannot be raptured/resurrected before 2029/2030. A day 2 resurrection/rapture would break Scripture and prophecy.

But, Genesis, Daniel and Revelation teach us that Yahweh uses a perfect biblical prophetic calendar of 360-day years. 2,000 years of 360 days = 720,000 days. So, how does this work out on our Gregorian calendar? Modern computers and calendar programs sure have helped in tying down Scriptural events. You have probably heard of astronomers using Julian days to count all days back into the distant past. Well, I use a website www.abdicate.net that uses what they call Serial Day Numbers, or SDNs, to number all days back into the distant past.

Yeshua was crucified on Passover, Nisan 14, 30 AD, which was a Wednesday, April 3, 30 AD Gregorian (April 5, 30, Julian), serial day number 1,732,110. Exactly 3 days after being placed in the tomb, Yeshua was raised from the dead, at the end of Sabbath, right at sundown on April 6, 30 AD Gregorian, (or April 8, Julian), SDN 1,732,113. That evening at Yeshua’s resurrection began the day of Feast of First Fruits, Sunday, April 7, 30 AD Gregorian, or (April 9, Julian). Yeshua was resurrected on First Fruits, to fulfill prophecy (1 Corinthians 15:20, 23). So what? Well, on the First Fruits Sunday during Passover week (week of Unleavened Bread), the Hebrews begin their Omer count of 50 days unto the Feast of Shavuot, or Pentecost. The Jews celebrate Shavuot commemorating the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai. We Hebraic roots believers in Messiah Yeshua, celebrate Pentecost as the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2, the BIRTH DAY of the Renewed Covenant Assembly of Yeshua HaMashiach!! Well, 50 days from Yeshua’s resurrection on Sabbath, April 6, 30 AD Gregorian, brings us to Sunday, May 26, 30 AD Gregorian, or (May 28, Julian), SDN 1,732,163. The Feast of Weeks, or Shavuot, is 7 Shabuas, or complete Sabbath weeks of 7 days each, then the next day, the 50th day, is ALWAYS on Sunday, the next day (a mini picture of the Jubilee cycle)!

So what? Well, add the 720,000 perfect prophetic TWO days (2,000 biblical years) to serial day 1,732,163 and you come to SDN 2,452,163. So what? Well, that day just happened to be Monday, September 10, 2001 AD!! The next day was September 11, 2001, the day that literally changed the history of the world, the Assembly, and biblical prophecy. September 11, 2001, was the first day of the 7th Millennium, and the beginning of judgment on America. It was the beginning of birth pains that Yeshua mentioned in Mt. 24:8. WE ARE NOW IN THE 3RD DAY of Hosea, so the Great Tribulation, Yeshua Advent 2.0 ©, and the rapture/resurrection of the saints can happen according to Yahweh’s perfect plan and on His calendar!!

When Yahweh showed me this, I was speechless. I could only cry and bless Him in my heart!

Hosea’s third day prophecy is also confirmed in the story of King Hezekiah’s sickness. 2 Kings 20:5, “Turn back, and say to Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ’This is what Yahweh, the Almighty of David your ancestor, says: “I have heard your prayer, and I have seen your tears. I am about to heal you on the third day, and you will go up to the temple of Yahweh.””

Amen!! Come Master Yeshua! Bless you Father!

To double check the accuracy of this calendar calculator, let’s check the Sabbaths from last Shabbat, Saturday, July 15, 2017, SDN 2,457,950 minus Yeshua’s resurrection Sabbath, SDN 1,732,113 = 725,837 days difference divided by 7 days = exactly 103,691 Sabbaths since Yeshua’s resurrection!!

So, be awake, worship Yahweh our King, expect the Great Tribulation to break out anytime, look for Yeshua’s return!!

MILLENNIAL REIGN OF YESHUA – Viewer Questions Answered

MILLENNIAL REIGN OF YESHUA

More Viewer Questions Answered

Welcome folks to my 2nd youtube broadcast. I see that our viewers have many questions about the end times. The endtimes are one of Yahweh’s mysteries, and I don’t begin to claim to understand very much of it. I should have clarified further that when I use years such as 6001 or 7001, those numbers are purely for illustration purposes. For example, 7001 – 6001 = 1,000 years millennial reign. We are not to get hung up on dates, times, days, or years, but we are looking to understand the seasons. We are in the end time season. Yeshua should actually return in the creation year 6000, since it will be the 120th Jubilee from Creation. But the exact date or year of His return is the Father’s choice.

Now, let’s try to answer a few more viewer questions.

1 – “So, I’m a little confused when your husband (Gene) says, “so “we” are going to see that.” If we are now in the year 5777 and Yeshua returns in 6000, isn’t that about 300 years? Our physical bodies would be dead by then, although our spiritual bodies would live on… So is he (your husband Gene) saying that “we”… meaning our childrens’ childrens’ children as in our great great grandchildren?” END OF QUESTION

Again, in my most humble opinion, since we have already entered into everlasting life, whether or not we experience the end times in a physical state, or only in a spiritual state, or physically, then die in the Great Tribulation, we will see all events from now on into eternity future. We will either see the end times unfold with physical eyes, or with spiritual eyes, or physical then spiritual, but we will see all the exciting prophecies fulfilled. Another way to express this would be to say that all the Kingdom witnesses will see all Yahweh’s Bible prophecies fulfilled.

The year 5777 is the Jewish calendar year, which is a calculated year, and has nothing to do with Yahweh’s creation calendar. Many men have tried to pinpoint what year B.C. was the creation year. I don’t believe anyone really knows, even though men can come up with some pretty impressive calculations. If this year is 5777 Jewish calendar, then they must believe that the creation year was 3761 B.C. (year 1 on the Jewish calendar). But these kinds of assumptions are just that, men’s best guess assumptions. Most Bible scholars believe the creation year was 200-400 years before 3761 B.C., something like 4000 B.C. or earlier.

As a side note, since 2009 AD, I’ve invested hundreds of hours building biblical chronology spreadsheets. What an incredible learning experience. I am not a Bible scholar, and I don’t believe any one of my spreadsheets is suitable for prime time, but I use them for personal study, and to check the claims of men. As I learned back in my accounting career, figures never lie, but liars figure, so I use my sheets to check the calculations of men. My sheets are built on the shoulders of some of the greatest chronology scholars in Christendom.

May I indulge for a moment? May I tell you how and when Yahweh hooked me on biblical chronology? I was plugging along in my Christian walk when one day in the spring of 2009, I began reading Ezekiel 1:1, “And it happened in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth of the month, as I was among the captives by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Yahweh.” As I read that phrase, “in the thirtieth year” the Holy Spirit just exploded the truth to my spirit that Ezekiel was telling us that he was in the 30th year of the Jubilee Cycle! In that instant, I was hooked on sacred Bible chronology and began building chronology spreadsheets. I currently have 19 of these spreadsheets, with about 6,000 lines each, and up to 40 columns wide. Friends, that’s at least 5 feet wide by at least 60 feet long, if you were to print one out, and that’s a short estimate. I haven’t put much time into the sheets lately, because my brain doesn’t want to focus like it used to. But that’s another story. Ok, back to our viewers questions. . .

2 – “Does he (me, Gene) believe in a 7 or 3 1/2 yr. Tribulation period?” The Bible only reveals a 3 ½ year Great Tribulation period. We find that in the texts describing 42 months (Rev 11:2, 13:5), 1260 days (Rev. 12:6), 1290 days (Dan. 12:11), and 1335 days (Dan. 12:12), and in the time, times, and half a time passages (Dan. 12:7; Rev 12:14). Daniel’s 2300 days (Dan. 8:14) may reveal a 7 year general tribulation period, but notice Daniel mentions 2300 evening mornings (2 words in the Hebrew), which could be translated as 1150 days, again closer to a 3 ½ year time period. I’ve discussed these periods of time in several of my blogs at https://ourdailydrink.wordpress.com/ . Speaking of which, my notes to these video teachings will be available on my blog also.

3 – “Where does he (Gene) think we are on Yahweh’s timeline?” I believe we are very close to the end of human history as we know it. Yeshua should return on or before 2030 AD. It’s not so much knowing a date, or day and time, or a point on a timeline, but we’re looking for events to happen. We are expecting a war with Iran, the Daniel 8 war, to break out at any moment. Also, the Psalm 83 war, or the Ezekiel 39 war. I am amazed at the world’s and Yahweh’s restraint. Don’t watch the clock, look for prophetic events to occur. If America, and Americans, do not repent, expect to see America wiped off the map, not Israel. Israel’s land may get divided according to prophecy (Joel 3:2), but Israel is not going away, ever. World War III is already upon us, as it is being fought in cyberspace right now, but will become a shooting war soon. The Wormwood disaster should occur soon, see Revelation 8:10-11. And please do not pray against any of these things, because we want Yeshua to return to earth, so bring all this stuff on Yahweh!!

4 – “Does he (Gene) believe most saints will be martyred in the Great Tribulation?” Yes. Dead or alive, we are with Yeshua, and will see all the Great Tribulation events occur, including the return of our King, Yeshua HaMashiach, by rapture or resurrection!!

If you would like to learn more about what events to look for in the near future, may I recommend Tim McHyde’s website: https://escapeallthesethings.com/ He has a great book for sale.

If you would like to watch an excellent video series on the Book of Revelation, search youtube for Steven Anderson’s 22 videos on Revelation. Both Mr. McHyde and Mr. Anderson have great charts about the end time. Also, Irvin Baxter at Endtime Ministries has a lot of knowledge on the endtimes.

If you are interested in sacred biblical chronology and would like one of my spreadsheets to look at or study with, just ask, and I’ll email one to you. Marner and I are not professional e-book publishers, but Marner has a couple e-books, which you are welcome to request. My first e-book is titled, “Sacred Chronology” that goes with one of my spreadsheets. My second e-book is titled, “Yeshua Advent 2.0”, which you are welcome to request. It is basically a biblical response to the pre-trib rapture theory. This e-book is in .epub , .mobi , .pdf ,or .doc format at the moment. Soon, I may try converting it into an e-Sword .topx module, so you can just plug it into your e-Sword Bible program. I highly recommend you get your hands on e-Sword for PC, Mac, or iPad. I have dozens of e-Sword modules that I could recommend to you. Download e-Sword at http://www.e-sword.net/ You can download additional Bibles and other resources from right inside of the e-Sword program, or you can purchase modules at: http://estudysource.com/platform/site/homepage/index.aspx

You can download FREE e-Sword modules at: http://www.biblesupport.com/

e-Sword is the simplest to use Bible program, in my humble opinion, as well as the least expensive to get started with.

Shalom, and I hope to see you in the rapture/resurrection soon and very soon!!
