The Holy of Holies – Geometric Location pinpointing the 3rd Temple

The Holy of Holies

Geometric Location pinpointing the Dome of the Tablets
Prophetic Comparisons and the Coming 3rd Temple

Thus saith YHWH, ‘The Heaven is my Throne, and the Earth is my footstool: where is the House that ye build unto me? and where is the place of My Rest?’ –Isaiah 66

If the Kerry Peace Initiative that is to formulate in April of 2014 will formalize the relationship between a newly created State of Palestine and the State of Israel, then the mutual recognition of the 2-State ‘solution’ to the Arab-Israeli Conflict might well stipulate that part of the agreement will be to allow for the rebuilding of the Temple of GOD. Based on sacred geometry and ley-lines, the Dome of the Rock does not need to be dismantled or altered in any form to accommodate the 3rd Temple. Based on the phi ratio proportions of the Temple Mount Platform presented in this illustration, it is strongly suggested that it would appear that the real location of the Holy of Holies is pinpointed at the place of the Dome of the Tablets or Spirits.

The accompanied chart illustrates 3 main points related to the 3rd Temple and the Ark of the Covenant. 1) Mathematically, the Temple Mount Platform is in an approximation to the phi ratio proportions from the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits), to the Dome of the Rock, to the Al Aqsa start of the building. 2) The Temple Mount Platform approximates the proportion to the measurement of the Ark of the Covenant itself. 3) The main structures of the Platform, the 3 ‘Domes’ mirror the 3 articles contained within the Ark of the Covenant Moses was instructed to build by the LORD GOD YHWH. The 3 articles contained in the Ark were the copy of the 10 Commandments or ‘tablets’, the Jar of Manna, and the almond Staff of Aaron that budded.

If a comparison to each is made, all the 3 items of the Ark correlate to the 3 structures on the Temple Mount as the illustration will show. If indeed the Holy of Holies corresponds to the Dome of the Tables (Spirits) there will be enough room to accommodate the 3rd Temple that might be part of the final and formal mutual recognition of the Palestinian and Israeli States. This will occur on the 66th year anniversary of Israel’s independence in 1948.

Dome of the Spirits (Tablets) Phi Ratio
If the phi ratio spiral is overlaid to both the Temple Mount Platform and the Ark of the Covenant from a top view perspective, there is almost an exact match. In terms of the Temple Mount Platform, the phi ratio spiral directly correlates to the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits). It is rather interesting that the Dome of the Tablets could very well correlate to the Holy of Holies as this specific place is where the Tablets rested within the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark contained the very Tablets of the Law of YHWH that Moses made.

These Tablets of the Law were a copy of the originals made by the LORD that Moses shattered upon the people during the Golden Calf incident at Mt. Sinai. What is most significant about this spot is that it was where the Shekhinah Glory appeared above the Mercy Seat. This Presence of YHWH transcended space and time at this place on Earth, piercing and bridging the dimensions of the Heavenly with the Earthy.

Ark of Covenant Type of Temple Mount Platform
The Ark of the Covenant depicted in the chart illustration is one that was conceptually arranged by Ron Wyatt upon his claim of being a first-hand eye-witness to its configuration during one of his archeological quests in the Old City. The dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant in inches are 52’’×31’’×31’’. Astonishingly, the width and length of the Temple Mount is a fractal of these numbers. The length of the Platform is 520 yards and the width is 310 yards. What these comparisons are also stipulating is that the whole Temple Mount Platform complex could be seen as one giant ‘Ark’ or throne or perhaps a footstool as is the case that often one puts up one’s feet on top of a chair sort of speak. This is where the verse in Isaiah 66 and others may have a new perspective.

A Metaphorical Comparison
To reiterate, the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant אָרוֹן הַבְּרִיתapproximates the dimensions of the Temple Mount Platform with an overlay of the phi ratio spiral. If this typology is consistent, then the 3 main articles contained within the Ark of the Covenant, could be seen as directly relating to the 3 main structures on the Platform. This is only a theological and metaphorical comparison.

1) DOME OF ‘Tablets’ (SPIRITS)
The Dome of the Tablets or also known as the Dome of the Spirits corresponds to the Tablets of Moses, the 10 Commandments. This is where the moral law of the GOD of the Universe was set down to govern the primary affairs between GOD and Mankind and amongst Mankind.


The Dome of the Rock corresponds to the Jar that contained Manna. GOD instructed Moses to take a sample of the ‘heavenly bread’ into the Ark as a witness of GOD’s miraculous provision during the Wilderness journey of the Israelites to the Promised Land. What is also miraculous is that the Manna endured and did not decompose as it did in the Wilderness. The Dome of the Rock is so named because of the Foundation Stone that protrudes out of Mt. Moriah. It is speculated that this is the place where Abraham attempted to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. Interestingly, the ‘rock’ is round like that of the Manna, presumably and the Dome itself is like that of a ‘jar’.



The almond Staff or Aaron can thus also allude to the ORION 3 star alignment. The 3 structures or ‘domes’ can also be corresponding to this heavenly alignment as other charts show entitled The Gates of Orion. The staff would have been part of the staff or a walking staff that could have been 27’’ in length, enough to use as a cane; assuming that the average height of men in that era was around 5 feet.

This length would also be able to fit inside the Ark. If the staff was that of a shepherd’s type for example, it most likely would have been longer and thus the staff in the Ark would have been a portion of it. It is also interesting that from the Al-Aqsa to the Dome is the longest span of distance between the 3 domes. It is also interesting that the nave, as the Al-Aqsa was actually a church first is only as long as it starts the ORION 3 star alignment configuration from that edge of the building, not the dome itself.


Golden Ratio

According to the conventional definition, it is a mathematical concept in one respect. Many call this mathematical and geometric relationship ‘the signature of GOD’. It is seen in all living things, plants, and hurricanes to galaxies or patterns of growth. The perfect human form or body is also in approximation to this ratio that is also called the Golden Mean, the Golden Section etc., used in architecture and art as well.


‘In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. The figure on the right illustrates the geometric relationship.’

Φ =1.61

Messiah – Jesus A type of the Ark
According to the Book of Hebrews, the author’s main emphases is that Jesus Christ is the real and true essence of the types GOD used to instruct and teach Israel about who and what GOD was and is. Such parallels of the types included the Passover Lamb, the High Priest, the Temple itself, Moses, etc. What many Bible scholars have also alluded to is that the Ark of the Covenant is such a ‘type and shadow’ of the work and ministry of Jesus Christ. In essence, the Ark of the Covenant is a personification of Christ in the following ways described in Scripture.

1) Tablets = Law (DEATH)
‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.’ – Matthew 5:17

2) Manna = Bread (LIFE)
‘I am the Bread of Life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.’ – John 6:35

3) Staff = Resurrection (LIFE)
‘I am the Resurrection, and the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live’ … – John 11:25

Will a 3rd Temple be built?
Although the exact and correct location of the prior Temples of Solomon and Zechariah (Herods) are in general dispute, those that seek the New World Order and those ‘Masons’ that seek to build a Temple to their coming ‘Prince’, the Luciferians know exactly where the 3rd Temple is to be built.
No amount of Muslim protest either will prevent ‘time’ and sacred geometry from fulfilling the prophetic time-clock of the Temple Mount. The 3rd Temple will be built according to how some interpret the books of Daniel and Revelation. With or without Islamic protest, there is a current dilemma over the Temple Mount. Israel has total sovereignty over the entire Temple Mount since the 1967 Six-Day War but Moshe Dayan relinquished ‘administration’ over the site back to the Jerusalem Waqf
وقفwhich only has deferred legitimacy given by the Prime Minister of Israel. Perhaps at this historic juncture of the 9-month April 2014 Kerry Peace Initiative the Prime Minister will exercise his sovereign right to permit the building of the 3rd Temple. Perhaps this issue of the 3rd Temple will come to the forefront of the treaty as part of the conditions for establishing a Palestinian State.

Astonishingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel clearly stated in his speech during the last American Israel Public Affairs Committee AIPAC meeting that he is prepared to recognize and accept a Palestinian State so long as the Palestinian State recognizes Israel. This mutual agreement that is a piece in Oslo Accord’s puzzle could thus pave the way for the 3rd Temple to be part of the bargaining chips and a condition for such a mutual political recognition. The cost will very well be the division of the Biblical land of Israel as the ancient ancestral lands of Judea and Samaria would be lost in compensation.

House of YHWH
If the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits) is the true location of the Holy of Holies, that will remain to be seen but it seems to be soon given the geo-political conditions that might well afford this time and place if the Kerry Peace Initiative is to be had. This theory of the Holy of Holies being at the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits) is just one of many ‘alternate’ theories of the Temple being somewhere else than where it will be. Some speculate and argue that it will be in Shiloh or over the Dome of the Rock, etc. Others speculate that it’s even south of the Al-Aqsa in the City of David.

In 1 Chronicles 22, it was David that bought the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite that is over the Dome of the Spirits/Tablets that was above the City of David on Mt. Moriah where the Temple Mount Platform is now. It was at that place and time that the Plaque was stayed for David having counted the fighting men of Israel, an explicit command by the LORD not to do. It was there at that threshing floor that the LORD instructed David to build an Altar. It is interesting that the Tabernacle of Moses is mentioned in that it was at Gibeon.

From that time, David instructed that the Tent of Moses be brought to Jerusalem and placed directly over this altar, this threshing floor of Araunah that later on he instructed Solomon to build the 1st Temple over it. David’s rationale was that it was a place of GOD demonstrating His mercy and sparing Jerusalem at the time and where GOD answered David’s prayer to stop the plague.

According to the Bible, the Temple was in keeping with this directive and purpose seen and recognized by King David. The Temple to YHWH was to be a ‘House of Prayer for All Nations’ – Isaiah 56:7 and where YHWH met with His nation, Israel and the world in general. It is also interesting that the threshing floor was used to separate the kernels for the wheat harvest. This could be alluding to a time or season of Pentecost. The Bible does say that spiritually speaking, now the Church is that Heavenly Temple, corporately made up of individual stones, or Believers that are being arranged by the LORD and building built up as a ‘spiritual house.

The Threshing of the Bride
The Bible declares that YHWH Himself has been building up the Body, the Bride into a ‘spiritual house’. With such a metaphor to consider, perhaps then if and when the 3rd Temple goes up at this same spot, it is also because the ‘spiritual house’ is complete and the Church will be taken as prepared sheaves into the real House of the LORD in Heaven as a result of the prophetic ‘threshing’ of the wheat over nearly 2000 years in the making.

According to the conventional definition of Threshing, it ‘is the process of loosening the edible part of cereal grain from the scaly, inedible chaff that surrounds it. It is the step in grain preparation after 1) harvesting and before 3) winnowing, which separates the loosened chaff from the grain. 2)Threshing does not remove the bran from the grain. Threshing may be done by beating the grain using a flail on a threshing floor.’

Many believe that the Rapture of the Church will be that ‘winnowing’ as the wheat is thrown up into the air and the chaff is blown away. The harvesting of souls has been currently under way since Pentecost. Due to persecution and trials over the centuries, the threshing of the Church has also accompanied the sorrowful history of the Church. Yet one day, the Church’s current state of ‘tribulation’ will end when the corporate winnowing will take place, i.e., the Rapture. It will be a time with the Saints  are ‘thrown’ into the air to rendezvous with the LORD and separate the old corruptible body of sin and be clothed in the new body of life and incorruptibility and be ushered into the ‘barn’ or House of the LORD in the Heavenly Jerusalem. The following is a very simplified notion of this prophetic process.

1. Harvesting/redemption – a ‘cutting’ away from the world, a separation
2. Threshing/sanctification – a ‘beating’ to loosen from world, the kernel from the chaff
3. Winnowing/glorification – the ultimate separation done in the air


Many believe that this coming ‘winnowing’ or Rapture will take place during a corresponding Jewish Feast; many attribute the Rapture to occur on Rosh HaShana because ‘no man knows the day or the hour’…but this is not a Rapture verse, it is in the context of the LORD’ 2nd coming. The only ‘Feast’ of the 7 that the Church is directly and only associated with is Pentecost… a start and finish bracketed interval between the 1st 3 and the last 3 and associated with the wheat harvest.

What is interesting to consider though is that the 2 Blood Moons of the Tetrad of 2014-15 on the Passover dates of April 15, 2014 and April 4, 2015 do occur near the star Spica which means Wheat and associated with a harvest. Regardless, these are exiting times as the world grows darker and evil. May the Church be found ready for the coming prophetic corporate winnowing.

March 14, 2014 Tribulation starts on Passover (4/14-15/14), Rapture on First Fruits(4/20/14)

There is so much information on the article below that it must be studied carefully and thoroughly. It is a very possible timeline of the Apocalypse, the Rapture and all the major events coming next month in conjunction with the start of the blood moon tetrad.

With all the things that are due to take place it will be hard to imagine that they are not signaling the start of the Apocalypse and the Rapture of the church.

Many Christians hold to the conclusion that the Rapture will happen before the start of the 70th week of Daniel 9 but I have always thought of the possibility that it will happen between the opening of the first and second seal. In the article below Miriam Howard proposes just that.

It is a very exiting and probable timeline the one she presents in her well researched article. thanks to David Blackman for this compilation of thoughts.

Reply to Taylor “2014 to 2017″

Hi Taylor and all doves,
I have read your article several times and you brought up a couple things that I was not aware of.  First was the use of astronomy software for finding all four conditions of Rev 12.  I have been more interested in the stars and astronomy since I read “The Gospel in the stars – The Mazzaroth by JR Church”.  Thanks for pointing this out.  The second was that according to that Passover 2014 is the first month of the Jewish spiritual year 6000.  I like your “theory”!
I would just like to add also that the end of the nine months that Kerry proclaimed for a peace agreement also ends in April 2014; and I had read a link from another Dove that posted about Israel has signed a peace deal with the palestinians recently.
The next item I like, points to April 2014 is an article that was written by Miriam Howard and posted to Fivedoves by Jim Bramlett  which I have included at the bottom of this post.
I am sure there are more that could be added but these were on my heart to add to your article!
Something that has happened to me that is kinda weird is that in Oct 2010 I lost a very good job that I had for 24 years and thought that the rapture would be very soon because of the “Judah Ben Samuel” and the 2017 time frame.  Here 3 and a half years later I find myself with weird things happening at work and they seem to be trying to make a case against me to remove me.  I was unemployed for one year and worked in this position (which is two half time jobs) for near two and a half years.  The timing of this happening is strange.  I have been applying and looking for a single job to finish my career here.  I wrote a couple weeks back and asked for prayer and things have settled down a little but I am still very apprehensive about what is going on and would like to have a new job.  Please pray for me to get the right job, I have applied for one that is a perfect fit and would like to have.  The timing of this just seems to weird.
Thanks Taylor,
David Blackman,

Tribulation: 2014-2021, Rapture This Year (THEORY)


Honestly, of everything I’ve seen and heard, this is the most persuasive timeline I’ve seen yet. It doesn’t rely on minute details, but big things we’ve been seeing come to pass (THIS IS A THEORY):1. This is the big one for me. Rosh Hashanah, September 23rd, 2017 and Revelation 12. I and others have scoured over hundreds of different dates using astronomy software and this is the first and only date for any year that fits ALL FOUR CONDITIONS of the sign in Revelation 12: Woman clothed with the sun. CHECK. Moon at her feet. CHECK. Giving birth to a single male child (the king planet Jupiter) right between the constellation’s legs. CHECK. Crown of 12 stars. CHECK. I have seen several close dates, such as Rosh Hashanah 2011, where 2 or 3 of the four conditions were met, but 2017 is the only date that meets all four conditions. THIS IS HUGE. Revelation 12 is a mid-trib sign, indicating the beginning of the last 3.5 years. Please also note: Jupiter, the king planet, was identified as THE Star of Bethlehem in the now famous Bethlehem Star documentary. It is the only object in the sky that meets ALL NINE of the conditions the Gospels mentioned of the Star of Bethlehem.

2. A LOT of external support for 2017 as a significant year: A. exactly 1 Jubliee after the 1967 re-capture of Jerusalem, which was exactly 1 Jubilee after the Balfour declaration. B. Judah Ben Samuel. C. Judah Ben Samuel rejected Christ, thus his “messiah” coming in 2017 is the antichrist, not THE Christ, which further points to the mid-trib. D. The Pyramid of Giza points to 2017. E. EXACTLY 1260 days before Rosh Hashanah 2017 is Passover 2014. F. EXACTLY 1290 days after each of the days of Rosh Hashanah 2017 is Passover, Unleavened Bread, AND First Fruits/Easter. G. Exactly 1335 days after Rosh Hashanah 2017 is Hayom-Yom 2021, the day the world needs purification. It also happens to be 2-3 days before Pentecost 2021.

3. As mentioned in point #2, Passover 2014 happens to be 1260 days before the sign/Rosh Hashanah in 2017. Passover 2014 also happens to be THE FIRST BLOOD MOON in the 2014-2015 tetrad! Of the four, it is the VERY FIRST. The timing is beyond incredible. Just think about it.

4. Here is where it starts to get even more chilling (in a good way): according to, Passover 2014, which is 1260 days before Rosh Hashanah 2017, happens to be MONTH 1 of JEWISH SPIRITUAL YEAR 6000. It is the first month of the 6,000th year!!!

So, When Is The Rapture?”

by Miriam Howard

Recently, I was asked when I thought the Rapture would occur.  My answer follows below:

I truly believe the Lord is finally going to come for us this coming Spring on the Feast of Firstfruits, on April 20 /Nisan 20 , 2014.

Beginning on April 1/Nisan 1 thru May 29/Iyar 29, 2014, the Gregorian calendar days and the Jewish calendar days will fall on the same number and the same day of the week.

The whole prophetic plan of God is overlaid upon Israel’s agricultural year from start to finish, beginning in the Spring, “at the appointed time,” “at the time of life”(Gen 18) for the season of resurrection when “the new shoots” burst out of the ground, at the opening of God’s Sacred Year, which opens on Nisan 1, near the beginning of the first harvest – the Barley – as the first grain and the first crop to be harvested in Israel. Christ is called… “But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.” 1 Corinthians 15:23.

The Bride of Christ is called “His Body” and believers are referred to as “a type of firstfruits” in James 1:18. The Body of Christ must represent the same agricultural product and harvest as Christ-Himself, which is Barley.  It would be totally out of agricultural order to assign the firstfruits of the Body of Christ to a different agricultural product than that of Christ Himself!

Revelation 14, which is a parenthetical chapter, in verses 14-16, portrays the Jewish ’Son of Man’ sitting on a cloud with a sickle in His Hand. An angel tells Him that the “the harvest of the earth is now ripe.” The Greek word “ripe” there is the Greek word for dry and is a clue for the beginning of the grain harvest – as that is the only crop in Israel that is harvested when dry! The Lord is the Husbandman – a farmer – and like any farmer any where in the world, He always begins His harvest season IN ORDER, with the FIRST crop that is ripe for harvest!

Two verses later, an angel comes out with a sharp sickle to harvest “the vine of the earth”which is ripe.”   But this time, the Greek word there for ripe is an antonym – an opposite - to the  first ripe above it and means wet,” which reveals the grapes are “full of the blood of the grapes,” which describes them fit and ready to be thrown into the “winepress of God’s wrath.”

That is the reason that Springtime, during the Barley harvest, on the day of presentation of the Feast of Firstfruits – which is always Resurrection Day – is the ONLY day in the whole year for the BODY of Christ to also “rise from the grave” and be presented to the Father, by the Son, as the Law commands in Deuteronomy 26:10 forever !

The Wheat harvest follows some 50 days later, which begins with “the firstfruits of God and the Lamb”during the Tribulation which the Bible clearly represents as the conversion and sealing of the Jewish 144,000, in Revelation 14:4 . I believe their sealing will take place on the first Pentecost of the Tribulation.

The wheat harvest continues throughout to the end of summer which represents the Jews and the Gentiles in the first 3 1Ž2 years, as well as the harvest of “the summer fruits”(Amos 8:1-2, about which the Bible says this: The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.)  Jeremiah 24:2-5  describes “good figs and bad figs  i.e. good (saved) Jews and Gentiles and bad (unsaved) Jews and Gentiles. In Israel, the first ripe fig appears very near the Feast of Harvest, which is Pentecost. (In Scripture, all mention of ‘wheat’ is a symbol for the nation of Israel and the Gentiles).

The Grape harvest follows at the end of summer/beginning of Fall which symbolizes the utterly wicked- both Jews and Gentiles- throughout the entire last half of the Tribulation, beginning in the middle of it.
The Earth’s seasons reflect God’s Plan- as
the Spring in the “time of Light” at “the end of the latter rain,” at the beginning of God’s Sacred Year- starting on Nisan 1.

The Fall is “the dark time” of the year with the death of Earth’s vegetation
evidenced by the browning of the vegetation and the ultimate drop-off of leaves.  This is symbolized by the Grape Harvest which is a type of the beginning of the death of the utterly wicked, beginning in the middle of the Tribulation and continuing on throughout the whole last half of the Tribulation, culminating with the battle of Armageddon in the Spring upon the return of Yeshua, the Messiah, Who brings the final death to all the remaining wicked.

Israel, the end of the levitical year (Exodus 34:22) culminates with “the Feast of Ingathering” (Tabernacles) which symbolizes the previously harvested crops that are gathered into “my barn” (Matthew 13:30, which is a symbol for the righteous Jews and Gentiles, at the beginning of the Messianic Kingdom on Earth during the Feast of Tabernacles.”

Following this is the preparation of the fields by plowing up the old residue in order to make the ground ready for the sowing the new seed  (a type of the redeemed remnant of both Israel and the Gentiles), and the arrival of the former, early rain, the gentle rain, in order for new growth to begin which continues throughout the winter months with the fall of the heavy, winter rains, through to the Spring, which ends with the last rain, the latter rain of the year- usually falling no later than in “the first month” (Joel 2:23), in preparation for the first harvests of barley and flax. (Flax was the most important fiber in the Bible because it was used to make fine linen. We see Jesus clothed in linen, fine and white, throughout Scripture. Also, Revelation 19:8 describes the Body of Christ, the Bride, who has been made ready for “the Marriage Supper of the Lamb”…this way:  “And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”  This scene willtake placein perfectseasonal order, after the close of “the latter rain,” as flax becomes ‘ripe’ for harvest along with the barley, for the return of Christ with His Bride.

Like last year of 2013- the same pattern presents again- when the last day of Unleavened Bread opens upon the close of Firstfruits- on April 20/21- Nisan 20/21.  I wrote about last year how I believed Revelation 5 depicts a holy convocation” with us- the Bride – casting our golden crowns before the Lord on His Throne.  I wrote how the Greek word “general assembly” in Hebrews 12:23 is definitely “ a convoking” i.e. “holy convocation” to which we are brought!  I wrote how John entered into “the spirit on the Lord’s day” in Revelation chapter 1, which I believe was the Feast of Firstfruits which always on ‘the Lord’s Day,’ and I believe that is our rapture right there, though not said by John. I wrote that John is called to Heaven in chapter 4:1, however, the first thing he saw is the 24 elders who represent the Body of Christ, ALREADY with crowns on their heads, indicating that the Bema judgment has already taken place!  So, somewhere between chapter 1 and  4:1, the Bema has already occurred, whether John saw it and just did not write of it or did not view it, we do not know.  But, the saints already have their crowns in chapter 4, which I believe is now the close of Nisan 20/the opening of Nisan 21, the last day of Unleavened Bread. I wrote that again, I believe chapter 5 is showing our holy convocation (Nisan 21), before the Lord.

Leviticus 23
tells us that both the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15) and the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 21) are both holy convocations before the Lord. As such, they are deemed “a sabbath of rest in which no servile work may be done” in Leviticus 23:7-8.

Something of great interest in the spring of 2014 is this:  A complete lunar eclipse will occur on April 15/Nisan 15 on the holy convocation at the opening of the Feast of Unleavened Bread!
  “The first eclipse of the year is well placed for observers throughout the Western Hemisphere. The eclipse occurs at the lunar orbit’s ascending node in Virgo (Virgo is the symbol of the woman of Israel).  None of the eclipse is visible from north/east Europe, eastern Africa, in the Middle East or Central Asia.”

I personally believe this particular lunar eclipse, with the Moon representing both the nation of Israel and the Body of Christ, will be a signal and a portent which will herald the coming in 6 days thereafter of the “disappearance of folks all over the world” and the immediate opening of the Day of the Lord and
the beginning of the Tribulation with the shock and awe of “the sudden destruction” from Heaven, beginning in the spring.

Immediately AFTER the Bema when Jesus takes His seat on the Throne and opens “the scroll”  which is written on both sides, and is the same scroll that Ezekiel saw which contained the words
“lamentations, mourning and woe”in Ezekiel 2:10, the Day of the Lord will begin.

Another truly big reason I believe this Spring will BEGIN HIS DAY – besides everything we are seeing happening at this very moment-in all the world, but especially in Israel and the Middle East, with way more to come to past before next Spring, is that Israel’s next sabbatical cycle of 7 years will open on Tishri 1 of 2014, Jewish year 5775.  THAT will allow the Lord to end the Tribulation in the Spring of 2021, return to Israel in time to “build and cleanse the altar” and the whole levitical system, called “the law of the house” in Ezekiel 43:11-12. This will all begin on Nisan 1,of 2021, with the fulfilling of the ordinances that the Law commands to be carried out throughout Eternity, beginning with the first Mosaic feast cycle with “all” the redeemed of Israel (Romans 11:26). “The Branch” (Zech 6) will lay the foundation and begin to build the Third Temple “in the second month” of Iyar/Zif (1 Kings 6:1) and (Ezra 3:8) when the foundations of the two prior Temples were laid, but this time- it will be laid on top of Mt. Zion which will be “high and lifted up higher than any other mountain on Earth” (Psalm 2:2; Isaiah 8:18; Isaiah 10:12; Micah 4:7), then “the Branch” will continue building the Temple through the summer months with people all around coming to help Him, which will then be completed by that Fall, when Tishri 1, 5782, 2021, will again open another Sabbatical cycle, and then on Tishri 10, Yeshua will declare that day to open the first Jubilee year of Eternity- as Lev 25 commands, when He will award the 12 Tribes their eternal inheritances, along with those of the priests of Zadok, the Levites, the city, the Temple and to the Prince Himself, as Ezekiel 48 says, and then at the ‘feast of Ingathering at the end of the year” (Tabernacles), the Messianic Kingdom of David will have officially opened on Earth.

Also, it is important to know that Daniel’s “Seventy Weeks” prophecy began on Nisan 1, as Ezra 7:6-9 says.  It can be proved that Tishri 1, Julian year 458 B.C. opened Israel’s Sabbatical year of 3304.  458 B.C. can be proved to be “the seventh year of Artaxerxes.”  The “seventy weeks began in the Spring of 457 B.C., Jewish year 3304, when Ezra left Babylon for Jerusalem.  [From the opening of Jewish year 3304, on Tishri 1, 458 B.C., to the opening of Jewish year 3787, on Tishri 1, 26 A.D.  equals 483 years, or “sixty nine weeks” of years, fromsabbatical year to sabbatical year!”  (All Jewish sabbatical years divide equally by 7). Yeshua, the Messiah, “the anointed one” came to Israel …after“seven weeks” and “threescore and two weeks” (Daniel 9:25-26).

Not only did Jewish year 3304, 458 B.C. open a Sabbatical year on Tishri 1, but it can be proved by Scripture to have also been a Jubilee year.  By an archaeological finding, “the Assyrian” king Sennacherib, dated 2 Kings 18/19 when came down against Judah and King Hezekiah, etching the date into a granite stele.  This took place in the spring of the Julian year 702 B.C., which was Jewish year 3059. Hezekiah prayed to the Lord about what he should do about this invasion and Isaiah came back to him with this answer from the Lord, in 2 Kings 19:29-31:

And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof. And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward. For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.”

This year was the 7th year; in the second yearwas the 8th year; in the third year was the 9th year.

This “sign” that the Lord gave was not only  telescoping prophecy down to the beginning of the Kingdom, as an eternal, ongoing command,  but it also proves that that year of Sennacherib’s  invasion, Jewish year 3059 , was a not only a Sabbatical year, but also a Jubilee year, just as the first year of the Kingdom will be, 5782 .  The Lord gave king Hezekiah instructions straight out of Leviticus 25:21-22, which states the Lord’s original command from the Year of Jubilee. (Don’t forget ALL Jewish 7th years can be equally divided by 7.)

Jewish year 3059 (702 B.C.) to 3304 (457 B.C.) =  245 years.  245/49 = 5 Jubilee cycles.

The 70th week of Daniel began in Jewish year 3787 , which opened on Tishri 1, 26 A.D.

[* It bears remembering that when the Children of Israel crossed over into the Promised Land the first time, the manna immediately stopped on Nisan 16, and the Children began eating “of the fruit of the land” that was already available and waiting for them (Joshua 5:26). The same great blessing will be available to the remnant their first and second years in the Land, which will give them time to plant in the 8th year and reap and partake in the 9th year!  Praise God for His wonderful Law of the Jubilee Year!]

Yeshua fulfilled the first half of Daniel’s 70th week.  From Tishri 1, 26 A.D. to Nisan 1, 30 A.D. is 3 1Ž2 years, the first half of Daniel’s 70th Week!

Yeshua was anointed at His Baptism, at the beginning of His ministry, NOT at the Cross, at the end of His ministry.

Yeshua was cut off 3 1Ž2 years after His anointing, as Daniel 9:26 clearly states.

3 1Ž2 years after the Cross in Nisan of 3790, 30 A.D. was Tishri 1, 3794, 33 A.D.

Tishri 1, 26 A.D. to Tishri 1, 33 A.D. = 7 years.

If the nation of Israel had accepted Jesus as their Yeshua Messiah and turned from their sin, they would have entered the Kingdom of David in the fall of 33 A.D. the opening of the new Sabbatical year, which would have been the final 490th year of Daniel’s prophecy. (490 years  = 10 Jubilee cycles). Tishri 10, of Jewish year, 33 A.D, Jewish year 3394 , would have opened that first holy Jubilee year at the beginning of the Kingdom.

>From the Fall of702 B.C. to the Fall of 33 A.D. = 735 years / 49 = 15 Jubilee cycles.

[It is only the wicked Jews and the wicked Gentiles who will be subject to the last half of Daniel’s 70th weekThe first half of the Tribulation is called “the travail of the woman” in the Bible.]

[Daniel’s “Seventy Weeks” began in the spring on Nisan 1, 3304, and it will end in the spring on Nisan 1, 5782.  5782-3304 = 2478 years/7 = 354 overall Sabbatical cycles from start to finish.]

If the Lord chooses this next coming 7 year cycle- beginning in Nisan of 2014,  with the Sabbatical opening in the ensuing Fall on Tishri 1, 5775, 7 years later at the opening of another Sabbatical cycle, which will open on Tishri 1, 2021, Jewish year 5782, He will proclaim Tishri 10, the Day of Atonement as the beginning of a whole, new, holy Jubilee cycle, the first one of Eternity.

[If one begins counting by 49 years, from 33 A.D., the last Jubilee would have fallen in the fall of 1993, which of course was not a Jubilee to the Lord, and the next one would be in the fall of 2042.  Of course that is too ‘far out’ and is completely out of the question! That is why He has chosen a whole new, holy Jubilee year cycle of years to begin. The Lord cut off Israel’s Jubilee cycle at the Cross because of the unbelief of national Israel.]
For all the above reasons, I fully expect that the Lord WILL NOT bypass this coming Sabbatical cycle for the redeemed, nation of Israel!

Also, here is something also interesting to consider:

Psalm 102:24
“I said, O my God,
take me not away in the midst of my days : thy years are throughout all generations.”

In Hab 3:2, the prophet entreated the Lord:

“O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.”

The Psalmist is pleading with the Lord NOT to take him away IN THE MIDST OF HIS DAYS, and Habakkuk is praying that THE LORD REVIVE HIS WORK IN THE MIDST OF MY
DAYS…” IN THE MIDST OF YEARS MAKE KNOWN”….”in wrath remember mercy!”

The word “midst” in the KJV means MIDDLE most of the time
Mid Trib will fall in the MIDDLE of the Sabbatical cycle - with the opening of Jewish year 5778 beginning in the fall of 2017The Lord WILL REVIVE HIS WORK whenAll the remnant will be brought “to safety” in THE MIDST OF YEARS WHEN THE LORD MAKES KNOWN HIS WORK of MIGHTY GRACE AND MERCY for the remnant – protecting them from the ‘Great and Terrible Day of the Lord in the last 3.5 years filled with God’s full, unrestrained wrath upon the utterly wicked, which is the last half of Daniel’s 70th week!  The Lord will NOT “take away” or “cut off” the righteous of Israel in the mist of their days/years” at Midtrib, but instead will preserve them in order for them to be able to go alive into the Kingdom! Yeshua promised Daniel that “all thy people”- referring to the righteous remnant (of all Israel)will come to rest” by the 1,335th day of the Tribulation (45 days after the 1290th day when the abomination that makes desolate”) in Daniel 12:12.  In His wrath, God will surely remember mercy for the sake of the future remnant, as God’s wrath and fury BEGINS at the BEGINNING of the Tribulation, starting with the Seal Judgments!

Psalm 90 promises the nation of Israel ’70 years.’  (Jesus was “cut off” in the MIDDLE of His years at the Cross.)  1947/48 (5708) to 2017/18 (5778)  = 70 years!   Remember God’s prophecy in Jeremiah 29:10-14, which is a Kingdom prophecy and can ONLY be completely fulfilled AFTER Israel repents and turns from her sin, becomes reconciled to the Lord and is restored… The “70 years” BEGINS in the middle of the Tribulation, but AFTER 70 years” willfulfill the prophecy when“All” Israel (the remnant only- Romans 9:6/11:26), will be appointed for salvation in the first 3 1Ž2 years of the Tribulation, as no one comes come to faith in Christ in the last 3 1Ž2 years, and will receive a new heart and the water of the Holy Spirit is poured out upon them, as Ezekiel 37 says, at the end of the Tribulation.

ALL the pieces fit this time, THIS TIME HE WILL FULFILL HIS PLAN!  I believe as we approach the DAY- events, signs and signals will be such THAT WE WILL DEFINITELY KNOW FOR SURE THIS TIME…THAT THIS WILL INDEED BE THE RIGHT TIME….

“And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.”Job 29:23

“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.”James 5:7

[The ‘latter’ rain is the last rain!  It is another clue for the proper season for our gathering unto Him!]

Jan 31, 2014 What is the message of the coming Blood Moons Tetrad?

There is a lot of discussion going on at this time about the tetrad of blood moon eclipses that are coming up this year 2014 and the next 2015. Many believe that it is announcing the Rapture, the Apocalypse and many other prophetic events. Time will tell how many prophecies were linked to the event by God.

This tetrad is related historically to Israel by the rarity of its occurrence and the events in Israel when they happened in the past.

The article by Gene Lawley is good in that it brings different points of view to these celestial events and their relationship to the prophecies that are due for fulfillment. Please see the other articles posted here on this subject.

One other observation of mine is that the place where the eclipses occur do not necessarily have to be seen from Israel as modern day satellite transmissions make it possible to see them as they occur from all corners of the world and the news outlets announce their appearance well ahead of time. Several years ago before the advent of computers and satellites only those with astronomical training were aware of their occurrence and location.


Sorting Out the Message of the Moons

By Gene Lawley

Anytime there is an eclipse of the moon or the sun it seems to stir up a lot of interest, sometimes almost as the time Hailey’s comet came in view from earth a few years ago. To me it looked like a smoky dust ball in our southeastern sky, hardly visible, even with binoculars. Then, it was gone in a few days, never to return in our lifetime.

But four total lunar eclipses in two years, projected by NASA are getting considerable attention among Bible prophecy adherents. There is much more to it in that regard, however, than just four lunar eclipses in two years. It’s their timing, visibility and repetitive appearances on certain days of the years. Here is a list of their salient characteristics:

  • They will appear on specific annual feast days of Israel.  In 2014, on April 15, the Feast of Passover and October 8, 2014, the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • They will appear in 2015 on the Feast of Passover, April 4, and on the Feast of Tabernacles, September 28.
  • The moon and its signs are distinctly related to Israel. The Jewish calendar is based on a lunar month of thirty days and a 360-day year. Different phases of the monthly moon cycle become reference points for much of Israel’s society.
  • The visibility of the eclipses around the world add to the mystery of these so-called “blood moons.”  The first one in 2014 will only be visible in Australia, Pacific and the Americas.  In October, it will be visible in Asia, Australia, Pacific and the Americas. In 2015, the first one will be seen in Asia, Australia, Pacific, and the Americas.  And, the last one will be visible in the East Pacific, Americas, Europe, Africa, and West Asia. In the latter region it will be visible in Jerusalem as the moon sets.

Some Observations about These Characteristics

The full eclipses fall on the first and last feast days of the annual seven-feast cycle, seemingly and perhaps purposely bracketing the annual seven feast schedule for each year. Is it to call attention to this annually repeated pattern since God gave Moses the instructions for their observance so many centuries ago on Mount Sinai?

Is it not strange that while the signs of the moon are directed to Israel’s attention, rather than the nations (Gentiles), these total eclipses are not visible in Israel, except for the final one, and that, hardly at all? It begs the question, why?

Let’s look at the feasts and their purposes in God’s plan. They were given to Moses as part of the declaration of the laws of God for the Hebrew nation. They are listed in Leviticus 23 in brief form. Hebrews 10:1 declares the law is but a shadow of the reality that was to come. That is, the law and its sacrifices were not the real thing, but were a foreshadowing of that reality then yet to come. Colossians 2:16-17 reveals that reality is Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,” as John the Baptist declared in John 1:29.

These feast days, or festivals, had future fulfillments, and we can see that the first four were fulfilled in short order at the time of the crucifixion and shortly thereafter. Jesus was the Passover Lamb. It is unique how exact the timing was for His death. While the priests at the temple were preparing the lambs for that scheduled sacrifice, Jesus was being interrogated by the religious leaders and their Roman counterparts, and they were preparing Him for His sacrifice.  Yet, Jesus was not sacrificed there; He was not part of that sacrifice, and he was sacrificed outside the city.  He was not of the tribe of Levi, which had charge of that other sacrifice; He was of the tribe of Judah and of the order ofMelchizedek, that priest of a much higher order (Hebrews 7).

Jesus was buried and in the tomb during the next feast, the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Unleavened bread is flat bread; it does not rise in its baking. It is essentially dead, thus Jesus fulfilled that shadowed reality in His burial.

But on Sunday morning He rose from the grave and became the first fruit of the resurrection, corresponding to the first harvest time of the year, celebrated as the Feast of “First Fruits.”

Then, seven Sabbaths plus one day later the Feast of Pentecost was scheduled.  It was the time of the second harvest, and the fulfillment was the coming of the Holy Spirit to indwell the very lives of the believers, as He was promised.  Jesus had told the disciples, when revealing to them that a Comforter would be coming after He departed, saying in John 14:17, “Bow He is with you, but then he will be in you.” Note that this day was a Sunday, the day the church, the body of Christ, was born.

No other feasts have been fulfilled since then, when in less than sixty days four of the foreshadowing feasts were turned into reality. Once in Jesus’ ministry, probably about this time of the year, he said to His disciples:

“Do you not say, It is yet four months, and the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white to harvest already” (John 4:35).

It is apparent in the context that He is not talking about the fields of grain before them. Sometime later, as Jesus was about to ascend to His Father in heaven following His resurrection, the disciples had one last question to ask Him: 

“Lord, do You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And Jesus responded, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you. And you shall be witnesses to Me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:6-8).

About ten days later, the church was born and here, we see its mission. A few years later, at the conference in Jerusalem, that mission was clearly defined: “God at the first visited the nations (Gentiles) to take out of them a people for His name” (Acts 15:14).  This period of time since Pentecost has been given to that mission, as spelled out in Acts 1:8.  That four months until the harvest in the Jewish annual calendar has become a gap of many centuries.  We have seen the “times and seasons” that Jesus spoke of, in reference to the question asked about the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, now come to pass. The kingdom has been restored to Israel as an independent nation. 

There have been no feast fulfillments since Pentecost, yet there is one more time of harvest on the Jewish calendar each year—the fall harvest. The next feast, the Feast of Trumpets, is unique in its manner of practice as an annual festival. It falls on the first day of the Jewish civil New Year, timed with the appearance of the new moon that starts the month’s new cycle. The requirement of exact correlation with the timing of the new moon at sundown meant that a two-day option had to be created in case cloudy weather prohibited a vision of the timing of the new moon. (As you may recall, Jewish days begin at sundown and end at the next sundown.)

At the opening trumpet blast from the temple in local practice, the field workers would immediately stop their harvesting and go to the place of meeting for worship.  There, they would meet with the Lord.  It is not that difficult to see the parallel with Paul’s description of the Rapture of the believers in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17:  “For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lord.”

It is not clear exactly when during the festival would the Rapture occur, for Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:52 of a “last trumpet” when the transformations happen.  In the Thessalonians passage, Jesus “descends from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God.” He also calls it a mystery, and certainly it is, for Jesus

has said, “Therefore watch, for you do not know either the day or the hour in which the Son of Man comes” (Matthew 25:13).

The next feast, the Feast of Atonement, was scheduled on the tenth day of that seventh month (of the religious year). Only believers are qualified for atonement, and this festival foreshadowed that provision in the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.  For the unsaved Jew that provision is not effective until they have recognized that Jesus is their promised Messiah and believe on Him. According to the prophecy of Zechariah, there is a time coming when Israel will look upon Jesus in a much different light, like the light of understanding and reality, and of bitterness and repentance:

 “And I will pour on the house of David, and on the people of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of prayers.  And they shall look on Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be bitter over Him, as the bitterness over the first-born” (Zechariah 12:10). It will be the time of the true atonement for Israel, as foreshadowed in the Feast of Atonement.

Zechariah goes on to say, in the next chapter, “And it shall be in all the land, says Jehovah, two parts in it shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left in it. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, It is My people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God” (Zechariah 13:8-9). You can read the rest of the story in Revelation 12, where that great red dragon, the devil, chases them into the wilderness.

That final feast of the seven, the Feast of Tabernacles, points to the coming of Jesus Christ back to earth as the conquering Sovereign, who will close the seven years of tribulation with destruction of evil forces aligned against God, including the man of sin and the false prophet. Those two will be “thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone” (Revelation 19:20). In the following chapter we are told what happens to the devil—he is cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand  years and Jesus reigns on earth, on the throne of David in Jerusalem. 

The Bible says, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt [tabernacled] among us” (John 1:14), and again, He will come to dwell among us, as foreshadowed by the Feast of Tabernacles, thus climaxing that historical calendar of God’s plan for Israel, His chosen nation, and His church of Jewish and Gentile believers.

The questions we should be asking now are:

  • What is in these feasts that would cause the bracketing of the seven for each of two years?
  • For whom are the signs meant, since they are not visible in the land of Israel, except in their fading moments on the second day?

One of my readers alerted me to the following possibility. Noting the worldwide visibility of the eclipses, except in Israel and the Middle East, remembering also that God has scattered the Jews among all the nations, we cannot forget that God is still calling all Jews

back to their homeland in Israel. With our focus on the nation and land of Israel, we forget that a great number of Jews are still scattered among the nations, and those nations are the very ones in the visible path of the blood red moons.  For example, there are about 5.5 million Jews still in the United States and over a third of a million in Canada. How many more are in the sweep of the moon signs over other countries?

The one feast of the remaining three to be fulfilled, the Feast of Atonement, is the one that directly confronts unrepentant Israel with its foreshadowing of their Messiah’s unveiling before them. Their recognition and acceptance of Him is set forth in prophecy, as noted above.  Possibly these two factors—the full return of Jews to Israel and the fulfillment of the Feast of Atonement—are the core elements of the message of the moons.  

Are these factors, then, clues to the purpose of the moon eclipses, their appearances on the first and last feasts of the annual series, and why Israel, itself, the historical lunar signs recipient, is not the focus of these signs?

Is God making a final call to the yet scattered Jews back to their homeland? Are the Rapture and the Atonement fulfillments a part of this unique, two-year alert and warning of things to come?  Is God’s appointed time now upon us?

JAN 16, 2014 A Prophetic look at Pentecost 2014 by Luis Vega

Luis Vega has shown a correlation of dates and phi ratios from the major blood moon tetrads that have occurred in the 1949 and 1967 and will occur in 2014-15.

This year is the 66 year anniversary from the birth of Israel in May 14, 1948. The 66th book of the Bible is the book of Revelation. Could Israel be pointing to the start of the Tribulations with the anniversary?

The prophecy of the seventy weeks of years of  Daniel 9:24 counted the time to Messiah’s cut off as 69 weeks of years = 483 years. The day it was fulfilled was Passover 32 AD when Christ was crucified. Will the last week start at a Passover to keep the same pattern?

Will the church be Raptured on Pentecost to fulfill a whole number of years? If the answer to these questions is in the affirmative the church will be present for the start of the Apocalypse and in the 49 days we will see the two witnesses that will confirm that Christ is coming and it will be what awakens the whole church from its long hundreds of years slumber as shown on the parable of the 10 virgins found in the book of Mathew.

Thanks Luis Vega for your very good articles and charts.

PROPHETIC PENTECOSTS – Echoes of the Liberation of the Temple Mount

Echoes of the Liberation of the Temple Mount
by Luis B. Vega
Online PDF chart at:
‘As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house[a] to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.’ -1 Peter 2:4
The start of the Tetrad on April 15, 2014 has some possible present day prophetic overtones to the Tetrad of April 24, 1967. The 7 week count of 49 days from First Fruits on April 18 lands on June 7, 2014 as denoted on a timeline from the Spring Feasts of the LORD/Jewish. This date of June 7 is exactly 47 years exactly from when the IDF recaptured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967. By some estimates, Pentecost occurred on June 5, 1957*. This is precisely when the assault to the Temple Mount & the battle for the Old City commenced.

This numerical count thus also has echoes of the year 19-47. The year ’47 was when the UN Partition Plan made Israel a de-facto state. What is remarkable is that on both prior Biblical fulfillments, the prophetic climax occurred on Pentecost based on certain Jewish calendars. Israel’s declaration of independence was on the eve of the Sabbath and Pentecost. The timeline will show that the Feasts are in perfect phi ratio from Passover to Pentecost and likewise the Tetrad Blood Moons are in perfect harmony of time and space to Pentecost of June 8, 2014.

Another reason why makes Pentecost of 2014 is unique is that it follows 3 consecutive Pentecosts to have occurred in-between eclipses within a lunar cycle period that has not occurred nor will for hundreds of years according to NASA’s eclipse table calculations.

Astonishing, there are 120 days from the May 19, 2013 to June 8, 2014 Pentecost dates. This is the number of the Disciples of Christ in the Upper Room that gathers to receive the promise of the Holy Spirit. It was also the start of the Church Age. The Body of Christ, the Church was birthed as a result of the death of Messiah during Passover, His burial at Unleavened Bread & His resurrection at First Fruits 3 days later as the promised Sign of Jonah was fulfilled. Could thus this Pentecost not only be tied to the 3rd Temple but to the Christians around the world, if not at that time, thereafter? As the Church’s Commission & ‘Spiritual Temple’ is completed, will this mark the time for the Earthly Temple to commence?

Israel became a nation on Sivan 5 on the 360 calendar, which was May 14 evening to May 15 evening in 1948. Israel became a nation at midnight May 14th ending, in 1948, upon the termination of the British mandate.
  The following is time from Pentecost 1948 to Pentecost 2014.

May 14, 1948 to June 8, 2014 = 66 years, 25 days or 3447 weeks

PENTECOST: Jerusalem
June 5th, 1967 was when the IDF began to ascend to the Temple Mount on the 50th year count of 1967. Israel regained the Old City since AD 70.

The year 1966 by some calculations was the Year of Jubilee. The following is the time from when Israel recaptured the Temple Mount on Pentecost 1967 to the Pentecost of 2014.

June 7, 1967 to June 8, 2014 = 47 years, excluding end dates

Will this Pentecost Pattern hold and see a Biblical fulfillment of some sort on or around June 8? Something related to the Temple & the Church of Jesus Christ. It may very well occur as start of the Tetrad echoes the day counts are very similar to the June 7, 1967 recapture of the Temple Mount. The following is the time from last of 3 Pentecosts in-between eclipse of 2013 to Pentecost of 2014 that has echoes of the number in the Upper Room on the 1
st Pentecost.
May 19, 2013 to June 8, 2014 = 120 days

Could this count from the Blood Moon Passover to Passover, a 49 day count plus 1 day be a prophetic count or code that the Pentecost that will be a major and significant event that will lead to the building of the 3rd Temple within the 2014-15 series? Will an event dealing with the issue of the Jewish Temple occur during this time?

Perhaps these prophetic times involving the start of the Tetrad and the Temple are tied to the completion of the Church Age that has been characterized by Christ completing His ‘Spiritual Temple’ to then allow for the start of the building of the Earthly Temple for the Nation of Israel. Could this in turn start the final countdown to the Tribulation and subsequent Return of Messiah? Well shall see and shortly find out.

*”It can be shown that even the Jewish calendar of Iyar 6 could have been Sivan 6th {i.e.,
Pentecost} that year since the month began very late that year. Sivan 5th is Pentecost on the 360 calendar while Sivan 6th is Pentecost on the regular Jewish calendar. This is because the month of Iyar only has 29 days in it on the regular Jewish calendar, whereas the 360 calendar always have 30 days.”

Prophetic Mars Alignments regarding the Israel, Jerusalem & the 3rd Temple

There are several converging factors around the Spring Tetrad of 2014. The much talked about Tetrad occurs right in the middle of the Retrograde of Mars in Virgo. Virgo is often spoken of representing Israel as is Leo also. These are the 2 signs of the Mazzaroth that Israel is alluded to in Scripture. Interestingly, the Mazzaroth or Zodiac starts with Virgo and ends with Leo. Prophetically speaking, it could be the case that as far as Israel is concerned, the order is being reversed in the End Times. The Biblical fulfillment of the convergence of all prophecy started with Israel becoming a nation in the constellation Leo and could possibly be ending with Virgo. In this case of the Retrograde of Mars in Leo, there was war in Israel as a result, the War of Independence.

These 2 signs of Leo and Virgo correspond to the key prophetic times of Israel in modern history. Incredibly, the UN’s Partition Plan and Israel’s independence declaration in 1948 occurred in Leo at the precise time when Mars conjoined with Regulus on both accounts. The recapturing of Jerusalem occurred when the Retrograde of Mars occurred within days of the Tetrad of April 24, 1967 as it conjoined with Spica. In that case also, the Retrograde of Mars was in Virgo and there was war in Israel as a result, the 6-Day War.

What this study and illustration shows is that the Retrograde of Mars is also occurring and will reach mid-point during the 3rd Tetrad staring on April 14, 2014. This last Tetrad sequence of 2014-15 is part of the cluster of 3 that started in 1949. The Retrograde of Mars pattern is as follows. The Retrograde of Mars occurred in Leo during the Declaration of Independence in May of 1948. The same event occurred in Virgo during the capture of Jerusalem in 1967. Now the Retrograde of Mars will be at mid-point as the 3rd Tetrad series in the 66th year will occur also in Virgo.

What could be also prophetic is that this Retrograde of Mars in association to the Tetrad leads up to the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of World War I by about 2 weeks. Is this possibly significant or coincidental? Although the Retrograde of Mars is cyclical, this rare convergence with the Tetrad could be the pattern that could be prophetic as it relates to some in Israel’s orthodox community quest to build the Jewish 3rd Temple. Thus the Retrograde of Mars in Virgo could likewise be signaling that there will be war in Israel as a result. This is only stipulated as a result of the prior the Mars conjunctions of 1948 and 1967.

Many believe that the conditions that led up to World War I are currently present in the geo-politics of the Middle East. Currently the main efforts to arrive at a final peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians are undertaken by the USA. Specifically, Secretary of State, John Kerry is spearheading the debates with much opposition and criticism. Despite a dragging-on of the peace talks, it is speculated that a settlement of some type or to a certain degree will be reached by April 2014. This timing will coincide precisely with the Tetrad and the Retrograde of Mars.

Although the US has been much involved in foreign entanglements in the Middle East, as with Iraq and Afghanistan, its populace back at home, in general is much asleep as it was prior to World War I.  What this study strongly suggests is that if the Mars Retrograde and the Tetrad patterns have some validity to them, then there will be war in Israel as it was for their war for their independence, war for Jerusalem and perhaps now a coming ‘god of war’ for their Temple.

The peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority that would divide Israel and establish the State of Palestine would in effect take Israel’s borders to the pre 6-Day War. This means that the Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount would have to be given up as it would constitute the new capital of Palestine. Yet these issues of contention still remain to be worked out but a resolution, be it an intermediate or final treaty is said to be achieved by April of 2014, around the time of the start of the Tetrad’s 1st Blood Moon and the coinciding with mid-point of the Retrograde of Mars.

In all actuality, as the politicians are claiming ‘Peace and Safety’ for Israel and Palestine’s recognition of Israel, the Bible speaks of there being a ‘sudden destruction’ instead. Could all this talks of peace and safety for Israel instead be the spring in the trap that will instead unleash an orchestrated Arab assault on Israel as in the Psalm 83 depicts?
The dates surrounding the statehood of Israel in 1948, the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967 and the start of the Tetrad in 2014 all have a Retrograde of Mars associated to these Biblical prophetic fulfillments. The first 2 prophetic events occurred on Pentecost, as some have calculated time. Will the 3rd event that may occur during the Tetrad up to the eve of Pentecost June 7, 2014 also be prophetic?

A Retrograde
In astronomy, a retrograde is the appearance of a celestial object, in this case, planets moving backwards against the sky. This is an effect based on the relative difference is speed of the planets as they revolve around the Sun.  As the orbits are circular around the Sun, inevitably, some planets will pass others and in the process ‘appear’ as though the planets are moving ‘backwards’ for a time before moving forward once again. For example, Mercury will have a very prominent Retrograde in-between the time of the Tetrad of 2015.

The following illustration depicts the exact position of Mars when the 1st Blood Moon of the Tetrad Apr 15, 2014 occurs.

Nov 22: Mars enters Virgo

Feb 01: In line with Spica
Mar 01: Start of Retrograde (approximate)
Mar 27: In line with Spica (’impregnates Virgo’ )
Apr 15: Exactly mid-way of Retrograde (Tetrad starts)
May 20: End of Retrograde (approximate)
Jun 13: Conjunction with Spica

>From start of Mars Retrograde to end
Mat 1, 2014 to May 20, 2014
=  81 days or 2 months 20 days or 11 weeks

This is the same amount of time that the Retrograde occurred in Virgo on 1967 by 1 day.

>From Spica alignments Mar 27, 2014 to end of Jul 13, 2014

= 108 day or 3 months 16 days or 15 weeks
(14 days from WWI 100 Year Anniversary

>From start of Tetrad April 15, 2014 to end of Mars RETROGRADE May 20, 2014
= 88 day or 2 months 28 days (excluding end date)

The God of War
here was a war that determined a favorable outcome for the Nation of Israel during Israel’s Independence in 1948-1949 and in the recapture of Jerusalem, in 1967. This study strongly suggests that the Retrograde of Mars was a ‘Sign’ in the Heavenlies that coincided precisely with the prophetic dates in Israel’s modern history.

1. The War of Independence
2. The 6-Day War

Since Israel’s independence, there have been numerous wars with its Muslim neighbors and on-going skirmishes but if the Retrograde of Mars parallels these 2 prior dates in Israel’s history, then perhaps the beginning of the Tetrad 2014 could see a similar war with Israel that will see the following.

1. A favorable result for Israel
2. Possible expansion of Lands and
3. The inevitable rebuilding of Temple

Interestingly the Spring 2014 Mars Retrograde at the time of the conjunction with Spica will be 15 days from the 100th Year Anniversary of World War I. Could this Retrograde in conjunction to the Tetrad signal thus the coming of 3rd World War?
