The articles below both are excellent and worth reading and studying.
Last Saturday I and my wife had a lengthy discussion with our son about creation and the time that has passed since the beginning. His views were those given by the secular scientific programs shown on TV with the series Cosmos.
In watching the first episode we pointed out the errors that these programs show and the religion of evolution for explaining God’s creation.
In one of the articles below jfh writes about the subject of the earth being the center of the Universe on which point I agree. Moreover that center is located on a very small spot of the surface of the planet.
That spot is the Temple mount and most specific the place where the throne of God will reside. It is fitting for the King of Kings to sit at the place that is the center of His creation, as He sustains its existence with the power of His will. The physical dynamics of the movement of this vast universe is well beyond my understanding, but every year we see the constellations parading in the sky in an endless repetition year after year, Wheels within wheels.

“Re: Calendar of Moses”
James Brownlow (18 May 2014)
“The Amazing Hebrew Calender of Moses – Barack Obama in that calender ?”
James, have you ever studied Enoch’s calendar? It consisted of 364 days. He said it should never be changed. Of course, that was before the flood.
Do you know what happened during the Flood of Noah? God stretched out the heavens and added one full day to the year making it 365 days.
If you multiply 13 x 28 days [for the month] you get 364 days: Enoch’s calendar year.
The moon stretched to 29 days.
It was in the time of Hezekiah that God stretched out the heavens again by a quarter of a day when the shadow of the Dial of Ahaz went down backwards by 10 degrees making the year 365.25 as a sign that he would extend Hezekiah’s life by 15 years and heal him.
The moon became 29.5 days.
Genesis 8:13-16 “And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.  And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
 And God spoke unto Noah, saying,  Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.”
Jubilees 6:3 “On the new moon of the third month Noah came out of the ark.”
For Noah the second month would have been Nisan 27. Nisan 28 then Nisan 29 was the last day and Iyyar 1 was the new moon of the 3rd month. So on the third day Noah came out of the ark.
It was Moses that made Nisan/Abib the first month after the Exodus.
Now you can continue to believe that the Sun is the center of the Universe but actually the Earth is the center of the Universe and the Sun is only the center of the planets and they all circle the earth including the stars/constellations. The Earth was created on the first Day and the Sun, Moon and Stars on the fourth Day so what was the Earth circling for 3 [thousand years] Days? They are what Ezekiel calls the wheels within the wheel.
Job 26:7 “He stretches out the north over the empty place, and hangs the earth upon nothing.”
There are 13 constellations rather than 12. Ophiuchus was left out. The picture is of a man sitting on a throne in control of the serpent that is reaching for the crown. He has his foot on the heart of the scorpion: It is connected at the ecliptic or path of the Sun.
All that had to be done to the calendar was to add one day to the second month and then add a quarter of a day every 4 years after Hezekiah and the shadow of the dial of Ahaz going down backwards by 10 degrees. Then all the feasts would continue to be on the proper date. Enoch prophesied that it would not be so and they did change it all. Even Daniel prophesied that.
Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
And so we have approached the END. God bless. jfh
1 Cor. 15:52-53 “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
Rev. 21:1 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”
Psalm 19:1-4 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,”
The June issue of Zola Levitt letters brings a very good and timely article on page 6 and 7. It deals with the fulfillment of the Spring Feasts of the Lord and their proper date for celebration.
In the article it explains how those who want to deny the Messiah Jesus have altered the day of celebration to obscure the New Testament historical reference to a Sunday resurrection. The link below takes you to the news letter and the article starts on page 6.
below is a link to another article by Neil Lipkin a Messianic Jew on his thoughts on the Rapture occurring this year on the feast of Pentecost.
In his article he gives his thoughts on the events that will bring about the Tribulation and how it will play out. It is a well thought theory.
My opinion of his view differs in that I believe that the concept of peace and safety during the first half of the Tribulation is erroneous interpretation. There is no way that after the first four seals of the book of Revelation are opened and they kill one fourth of humanity (1,792,386,350 million people) that you can call that peace. This happens at the very beginning of the seven year period and the following events get worse and worse.
Because the tetrad of blood moons is a very important sign I agree that it is announcing the Rapture and the Tribulation, but it covers two years 2014 and 2015 so the events could be shifted to next year without problem. After next year it would be hard press to say that the tetrad was a sign for these events.
Neil Lipken (25 May 2014)
“MY BEST THEORY ON HOW THE TIME PERIOD OF THE 2014 AND 2015 LUNAR ECLIPSES ON PASSOVER AND TABERNACLES WILL PLAY OUT.“
Genesis 1:14 “Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days and years…..’ “
Luke 21:25 “And there will be signs in sun and MOON and stars……” This scripture is about these End Times in which we are living (since Israel returned as a nation in 1948).
In 1492 Columbus sailed for the New World, and in the centuries to come Jews would flee European persecution for freedom in the New World. In 1493 and 1494 lunar eclipses happened on Passover and Tabernacles both years. In 1948 Israel returned as a free, independent nation for the first time in 2669 years since 721 BC. In 1949 and 1950 lunar eclipses happened on Passover and Tabernacles both years. At Passover of 1967 a lunar eclipse occurred, and on June 7, 1967 Israel captured the true “City of David”, East Jerusalem, in the Six Day War. Later that year at Tabernacles a lunar eclipse occurred, and lunar eclipses happened at Passover and Tabernacles of 1968. Please note that each of these events were GOOD events for the Jewish people and Israel———Freedom from persecution, Israel becomes a state, Israel captures its true, eternal capitol, East Jerusalem.
Just once in the 21st century will these Passover / Tabernacles / Passover / Tabernacles lunar eclipses occur—— 2014 and 2015 ——and these eclipses on Jewish feast dates like this will not occur again for 500 years!
The 2014 and 2015 lunar eclipses will again mark a GOOD event for the Jewish people and Israel, but what will that GOOD event be? There are only two GOOD events remaining for the Jewish people and Israel in these End Times——-the building of the Third Temple and the Second Coming of Israel’s long-rejected Messiah, Who is Christ. The 2014 and 2015 lunar eclipses cannot mark the Second Coming as that is a minimum of 7 years from now as the 7 year Tribulation Period has not yet begun. So that leaves just one GOOD event that these eclipses could be associated with, the building of the Third Temple! And when you think about it, is that not the proper order of things? Freedom from persecution, Israel becomes a state, Israel captures East Jerusalem, and NOW in proper order Israel builds the Third Temple! All very GOOD events!
The first lunar eclipse has already occurred back in April of 2014 at Passover. Three eclipses now remain, later this year at Tabernacles, and then at Passover and Tabernacles of 2015. So, how will Third Temple construction begin within this time frame?
I have a theory, but what I believe is a very good theory. I will lay it out here, but remember that it for the moment is just a theory! Time will tell whether it bears out to be true.
But first a little more introductory material. Jesus died on Passover in the first century, rose on the Feast of First Fruits (Easter), and the Holy Spirit descended on Pentecost. His blood sacrifice fulfilled Passover, and his body sacrifice fulfilled the Feast of Unleavened Bread (the seven days after the one day Passover feast). In just 53 days from Jesus going to the cross till Pentecost, four Old Testament Jewish spring time feasts were fulfilled by New Testament events. There are two Old Testament Jewish fall feasts that will be fulfilled by end time New Testament events. Many believe that the Rapture will fulfill the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah), and the Second Coming will fulfill the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), with each of these end time events happening at the fall Jewish feasts just like the First Coming events happened at the spring Jewish feasts.
But for the Rapture there are actually two possibilities. The Rapture may fulfill the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah), but there is another possibility. In Matthew 24:31 Jesus sends forth his angels with a GREAT TRUMPET, and they gather together his elect from one end of heaven to the other to return with Him at the Second Coming. This may happen at Rosh Hashanah (the Feast of Trumpets) and fulfill this Jewish Feast, and then ten days later the Second Coming fulfills the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). This would be most interesting in that the four spring Jewish feasts were all fulfilled in a 53 day time period, and the two fall Jewish feasts would be fulfilled in a 10 day time period. This would “free up” the Rapture to occur virtually anytime during the year it occurs, and follow the “sudden destruction” event, which throughout scripture in the Old and New Testaments the Rapture must be associated with. Remember that the coming of the Son of Man is JUST LIKE the days of Noah, and in Noah’s day there were no Jewish people yet and and the Jewish feasts were yet to be given by God. So the Rapture could indeed be “free” of the Jewish feasts.
SO, HERE IS MY THEORY, BUT REMEMBER THAT RIGHT NOW IT IS JUST A THEORY, BUT I MUST SAY A MOST INTERESTING THEORY!
Let’s say that the lunar eclipse pattern of 1967 and 1968 holds true this time around. Remember that in April of 1967 the first eclipse happened at Passover, and then on June 7th of 1967 Israel captured East Jerusalem. In April of 2014 at Passover the first lunar eclipse occurred. And this year too in early June a BIG event happens. It just so happens that June 4th of this year (2014) is Pentecost. Remember that the Church Age began at Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended (Acts 2). So, let’s say in theory that the Ukrainian situation explodes in early June of this year, or perhaps that Israel finally must move against the Iranian nuclear facilities in early June (or it will be too late to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons). Or perhaps both occur and the “sudden destruction” event is underway. THE RAPTURE HAPPENS around Pentecost, and the Church Age ends around Pentecost just as it began at Pentecost! In the future this “sudden destruction” event associated with the Rapture will likely come to be known as WW III. Immediately after the Rapture the antichrist arrives on the global scene, and he spends the summer of 2014 pulling together the “sudden destruction” mess that is upon the world. When Israel attacks Iran, Iran will likely release its proxies (Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in the Gaza Strip, and even the Palestinians) to fight Israel. Saudi Arabia and Jordan will likely come in on Israel’s side to fight Iran. If Ukraine explodes, Russia will be engaged with the European Union and the U.S. Iran and Russia might very well lob some missiles into the U.S. Many Rapture dreams have detailed missiles coming into the U.S. at almost virtually the same time that the Rapture is occurring, with believers in Christ rising in the air to meet the Lord, and looking down to see explosions in numerous American cities. In Revelation 6:2 the antichrist on a white horse goes out “conquering, and to conquer”. The antichrist in the summer of 2014 using satanic power pulls the “sudden destruction” mess together, demands finally “world peace”, and gains the trust of the nations including Israel and the Palestinians.
Then, at Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) in the fall of 2014 the antichrist makes the Daniel 9:27 covenant with Israel, the Palestinians, and many other nations. The Palestinians get their state, and Israel gets the right to build the Third Temple. The 7 year Tribulation Period officially begins, yet the only people who will know this will be those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior AFTER the Rapture, which occurred back in June of 2014. The remainder of the world will be deceived by the antichrist, as he makes promises to finally bring peace to the world, and better times ahead. America will have been devastated by the “sudden destruction” event, as will many other places in the world. At first it will be voluntary to follow the guidance of the antichrist, but in a short time all will have to tow the line to follow the New World Order under his leadership. Those who resist will be placed in FEMA camps around the U.S, and as time goes by many of those will be tortured and killed (many by beheading—-Rev. 20:4).
The power base of the antichrist will be the European Union, and he will take his place at the head of its government. But in the months to come (the late fall of 2014 and the winter of 2014-15), Iran is feeling the sting of its defeat to Israel, and Iran plots with Russia to attack Israel. Then in the spring of 2015 at Passover, Iran with Russia and the other nations outlined in Ezekiel 38 and 39 attack Israel and the “Russian invasion of Israel” is underway. Take a very close look at Jeremiah 16:14 & 15. These two verses tell us that in the future the celebration of Passover will change from “coming out of the land of Egypt” to “coming out of the land of the north”. This is why I have always believed that the Russian invasion of Israel will occur at Passover time, and when God intervenes and Russia and her allies are defeated, Jews will pour out of Russia (the land of the north) and come home to Israel. The Russian invasion of Israel MUST occur when Israel is dwelling securely (see Ezekiel 38:8, 11, & 14), and the only time from 1948 till the Second Coming that Israel is dwelling “securely” is during the false peace granted by the antichrist during the first half of the 7 year Tribulation Period. So, Russia and her allies attack Israel at Passover of 2015 (and there is a lunar eclipse at that time!), and God Himself intervenes and the attacking force is defeated.
With Israel jubilant in her victory, and the antichrist providing a false peace (Israel thinks it is the real peace as she is deceived and looks to the antichrist as her political deliverer), Third Temple construction gets underway in earnest in the late spring and summer of 2015. And so Temple construction is underway, and in the fall of 2015 at the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles the last lunar eclipse occurs!
NOW THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS MY BEST THEORY ON HOW THE TIME INTERVAL OF THE FOUR LUNAR ECLIPSES OF 2014 AND 2015 WILL PLAY OUT! I BELIEVE STRONGLY THAT THESE FOUR LUNAR ECLIPSES WILL MARK THE ONLY REMAINING GOOD EVENT FOR ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE BEFORE THE SECOND COMING, THAT IS THE BUILDING OF THE THIRD TEMPLE!
Thanks to Jim Bramlett for providing us the link to this very good video.
The speaker in the video Mr. Benjamin Burton is a Messianic Jew and makes a convincing study of the Torah and how it proofs the new testament. Seldom do Christians get such a clear understanding of the Hebrew and how it prophecies the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.

“Hebraic Roots / Virgin Birth Exposed“
Very deep linguistic insights. Excellent teaching.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzasQe6m0VA
Mr Gary Stearman analyses the news from the middle East that he states are not covered by the Western press.
These news reports are of concern for Israel and they are for us to. The reason is they point to the time of the start of the Tribulation period which will be preceded by the Rapture of the church. He very knowledgeably ties the prophecies with the news. Ancient names are identified with modern nations and cities.
The enemies of Israel and God plot behind the scenes as if their actions could remain hidden from the omnipresent Creator of the Universe. Oh how futile are the plans of those who conspire against God’s chosen people.
The nations that are involved in these two video presentations lack the knowledge of scripture where their demise is so eloquently laid out with minute detail. It is ironic that even if they knew they would go on as they are planning with complete disregard to the warning and so like lemmings they march on to the sound of the flute to the precipice of their destruction.
The message that Mr. Stearman so skillfully delivers is to the church of Jesus Christ and not to those in those nations and territories covered by the prophecies. He tries to be a watchman on the wall to alert the church to the lateness of the hour at hand. Most of the church is ignoring the signs and the warnings and the event will catch them by surprise.
If you are reading this and you live in the middle east know that your only hope of protecting your soul is found in believing that Jesus came to offer His live in lieu of yours and that as God which he is, he resurrected proving His dominion over death and nature. He seeks a father to son-daughter relationship of love and obedience with us. If you enter into this relationship with Him your salvation for eternity is guaranteed.
If you are not familiar with the prophecies in the Bible I suggest that you take a paper and write the prophecies that are mentioned in the videos. My blog has a link to the right to a translator and to Bibles in many languages of the world. Click the link and find the heading Multi, click there and scroll til you find the one language that you want.
A lot of things are dependent on the Sabbath years or Shemittah and its importance has been made more obvious by pastor Jonathan Cahn the author of the Harbinger. His presentations on the Shemittah and how important they are today are extraordinary. In his lectures he identifies the year 2001, 2008 and 2015 as being Sabbath years. This very important fact is corroborated by J.R. Church in his book: Daniel Reveals the Blood Line of the Antichrist. At the end of the book starting on page 267 to page 330 he has a Chart of Six Millennia.
This chart is worth by itself the buying of the book. It lists many important historical facts but it starts with Adam listing the Sabbatical and Jubilee years listing in red those that are questionable and derived from the book of Jubilee. It covers the present and projects to the future year 2241. On page 328 of the book he starts the second column of dates with the year 1994/95J, indicating it as a Jubilee. He shows 1993/94S and lists the following as Sabbatical years 2000/2001S , 2007/2008S , 2014/2015S and 2021/22S. The book lists the next Jubilee year as 2043/44J. If you take your calculator or by hand you will see that the Jubilee cycles are 49 years not 50 years. Each Jubilee year is the first year also of the next Sabbatical year as well as the first year of the next Jubilee year.
This count agrees with the dates given by Jonathan Cahn in his Shemittah series presentations. He also comes to the conclusion that in Rosh Hashanah of 2015 it could be, not 100% sure, the collapse of the world economy. There is also a partial solar eclipse on that date.
The Shemittah year 2014/15 falls in the mist of the tetrad of lunar eclipses discovered by pastor Mark Biltz.
The following graph is from the Torah calendar site and it lists this year also as a Shemittah year and the 120th Jubilee year since creation and the year 6,000. Here they count the cycles as 50 years.
This is my personal opinion to all of the above.
The Millennium is definitively starting on a Jubilee year and if the Tribulation starts after a Sabbatical year then on Rosh Hashanah 2015 the Tribulation should start. The Millenium on 2022/23.
For the Rapture it could be any time from here til 2015 before the Tribulation. June 8, 2014 Pentecost sounds good to me and it is my next watch.
This article is about the role of Russia and the USA in the eastern European countries. It is a sad reality that these countries do not have the military strength to prevent a Russian invasion of their territories. Threads and economic sanctions are incapable of stopping Russia at this time.
This article posted in http://www.raptureready.com has an alarming title. The contents seem to be accurate and detailed. The implications of what is going on between Russia and the United States is very serious.
At present these two super powers are in opposite sides of many areas, countries and ideologies. Russia seems to be supporting Shia Islamin Syria and Iran as well as making overtures to Egypt thanks to president Obama’s bungling diplomacy in that country.
As Bible prophecy students we know that the whole region surrounding Israel will lit up at the time of the Tribulation, so the question is how far are we from the beginning.
