THE FINAL COMMISSION OF THE CHURCH
PENTECOSTAL INTERMISSION PATTERNS
Eclipse Patterns Signaling the End of the Age of Grace

‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and see, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.’ – Matthew 28:19-20
The purpose of this study is to consider the prophetic pattern of the Church Age in how it appears that it is coming to a close in this last generation based on 2 particular astronomical cycles. The New Testament teaches that there will be a conclusion to this Commission and Jesus Christ promised to be with His Church until the end of the Age or dispensation. This study does make a delineation between the Church universal and the Bride that will be extracted from it. Once the Bride is Raptured, the suspension of Israel’s commission will resume by way of the 144,000 Witnesses and the 2 Witnesses in particular. It will involve the conclusion of Israel’s discipline as some interpret the prophecy of Daniel and the scenario based on the book of Revelation. This subsequent time for Israel’s discipline is referred to as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. This time is also attributed by some to be coinciding to be what is called the Tribulation period.
This study also holds to the interpretation that the Tribulation period is a compressive 7 year prophetic week of years. It is divided into 2 equal lengths of times that is referred to as the ‘Time, Times and Half a Time’. Moreover, this period correlates to the commencement of the breaking of the Seal judgments by the Lamb, Jesus Christ in Heaven. These Seal judgments are all-encompassing that includes within it the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation, the Wrath of the Lamb, GOD, Satan, etc. What is noteworthy is that the type of ‘First Fruits’ of the Rapture, that is the Apostle John is there in Heaven to witness the breaking of these Seals as a euphemism for the Bride. In the ‘reading of the will’, the sentencing is being proclaimed against Lucifer and his Fallen Ones, and the world that will be in tandem with the final discipline of Israel.
This study does not agree that the Church will overlap in any way with the Seal Judgments or Wrath of the Lamb or Satan for that matter. The Church Age must end before the Time of Jacob’s Trouble can commence. It will be a time remaining to complete Israel’s redemption and transformation, not of the Church because that is what the Pentecostal Intermission, the Church Age has been all about. Only then at the end of the Great Tribulation will Israel finally be able to see and say ‘Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the LORD’ to Jesus’ at His 2nd Coming based on Zachariah 12-14. This is proof that Israel is not the Church as the Church is not in a position to be refined to the point that it says the same about the true Messiahship of Jesus. The Church sees Jesus now as Paul taught and the Church is yielded to the headship of Messiah; Israel is not because it was Israel who ‘pierced Him’, not the Church.
Who is the Church?
One of the main points of this study is that the Church is a particular living organism that transcends a chosen racial bloodline and/or a covenant land, i.e., Israel. It is not a man-made religion or organization such as the Catholic Church. This study is in agreement in that the Church is the spiritual hybrid of the ‘New Man in Christ’ that includes both Jew and Gentile in Christ Jesus. It has been during this Pentecostal Intermission that the LORD has seen fit to build His peculiar Temple, a spiritual house, i.e., the ‘Bride’, a gentile mostly at that, as a type of Ruth and Boaz prophetic metaphor. The mere fact that this spiritual Temple is where the LORD’s glory resides is testimony that the Church is not Israel, as national Israel is without at physical Temple required to honor the LORD with. This speaks of the discipline Israel has had to endure in tandem during this Pentecostal Intermission as it has been set aside prophetically, for the time being until the Time of the Gentiles fully come in. This not to say or teach that the Law and the Prophets have been done away with in Christ but that they have been fulfilled in Jesus.
There are many Christian denominations that emphatically teach that the Church should obverse the ‘whole Law’. If this is the case, then stoning of rebellious children is warranted; then the need to sacrifice at the physical Temple in Jerusalem is demanded, etc. This is the quandary, such can’t because there is no physical Temple in Jerusalem. This is the dilemma currently for the observant Jews that can’t answer the question of why YHVH has not allowed a House to His Name be erected at this time in Jerusalem for 1,983 years so far. It is because the Messiah came and was rejected by national Israel. As a consequence and discipline, Jesus at the Olivet Discourse foretold that the Temple would be destroyed in His generation at His 1st coming but yet would exist in the Terminal Generation at His 2nd coming. It was Jesus who despite national Israel’s rejection initiated the New Covenant composed of the ‘New Man in Christ’.
The true Church since the 1st Pentecost has operated under this constitution and will until the Commission the Church is completed and the issue with Israel’s disciple resumes; for which a 3rd Temple will be provided for such a time to complete Israel’s discipline. There is much confusion in the Body of Christ as to who is the Church. Many Christians erroneously also believe that the Church will ‘spill over’ into to the Tribulation period because of certain aspects of the books of Daniel and Revelation that are either taken out of context or are misinterpreted. In certain references, there is language that speaks of the ‘Saints’ being worn out and overcome by the power of the AntiChrist.
Yet in such a time Israel is protected even from the horrors of the AntiChrist. The false Prince and Messiah will turn to hunt down the People of YHVH during the Tribulation, especially toward the 2nd half. The reason why the Church cannot be present during the Tribulation, much less the Great Tribulation is because Jesus promised that His Church would not be subject to such a commission and witness. The LORD Jesus promised that the Church would not be, could not be overcome nor worn out as the Gates of Hell. Such would attempt to destroy this Witness throughout the Pentecostal Intermission. For the Church Age, many types of AntiChrists have arisen for that very purpose. Such minions of Lucifer have not prevailed despite horrific atrocities done against the Saints, the Church comprising of both Jew and Gentile even to this present day.
The Pentecostal Intermission
Such Satanic assaults cannot prevail over the Church and its Royal Commission because like the encampment or ‘church’ in the wilderness, the false prophets of Balaam could not curse the assembly. Why? Because there was a ‘shout of the King’ amongst them. Jesus was in the midst and no power in Heaven or on Earth is greater than that of Jesus, as all authority in Heaven and Earth belongs to Jesus alone due to His atoning substitutionary work on the Cross. The authority of the resurrected LORD Jesus has been the power of the Church during the Pentecostal Intermission for nearly the 2000 years. Why so many AntiChrist types have attempted without success to destroy the Church throughout this Intermission with their Gates of Hell is because the shout of the King, of Jesus is in her midst. The only way Lucifer can prevail over a local ‘encampment’ is if Jesus is not their King and/or there is compromise.
This has been what has plagued the Churches throughout the Church Age as it was the case for Israel. It has primarily been the doctrines of the Nicolaitanes and the Jezebels that have been allowed in the Church that have compromised such a testimony. To reiterate the ‘Church’ are all those that call upon the Name of Jesus and is the Head and Sovereign over the Body. It is not the Protestant Church nor other ‘organized’ ecclesiastical denominations. Sadly the last facet of the Church Age is that of Laodicea that is generally characterized by gross apostasy. Ironically this last stewardship or ‘chapter’ of the Church will see the Bride of Christ be completed; her cloths made white by the Blood of the Lamb and washed in the Word ready for the Rapture presentation.
The divine purpose and plan for the Church has been that this divine authority of Jesus as King has been bestowed by the LORD Jesus to proclaim this witness to every generation within the Pentecostal Intermission. This invincible power of an indestructible life of a risen King is why the ‘Saints’ in this dispensation cannot be ‘worn out’ or overcome despite unrelenting persecutions by Lucifer in an attempt to if at least compromise the witness because he knows he cannot destroy nor curse it like Balaam. This divine power and authority was bestowed for the very purpose of fulfilling the Royal Commission to testify of the resurrection and new creation found only in the Son of GOD. These specifics protocols given by Jesus are prophetic only within the parameter of the Church Age or peculiar Intermission. It has been specifically for His followers in which the Rapture will signal the Bride’s Commission completed as a type of harvest.
Another reason why the Church is not Israel is that after the Rapture, national Israel will make a ‘New Covenant’ with the AntiChrist, or ‘Death’ as Isaiah calls it. During this subsequent time, the LORD will commission other witnesses. If there has been any spill over or overlap of the Commission of the Church with Israel, it has been in the context that that national Israel has been brought back in the land, although in unbelief. Also Jerusalem has been established as its capital. More prophetic is that the Temple Mount has been secured by Israel although no Temple has been erected. These are the 3 prophetic keys that will signal the countdown to the end of the Bride’s Commission. If the Church Age Believers with their Royal Commission ‘spill over’ into the ‘Tribulation’ in any form, it would violate the purpose for the Pentecostal Intermission. In a typology of the Divine Feasts, Pentecost cannot suddenly become a time of Rosh HaShana.
The prophetic types of the Feast of YHVH would follow that after the prophetic Pentecostal Intermission, what comes next is the Fall Feasts that deal with introspection, repentance and atonement. This is what the Tribulation will be all about, for Israel, not the Church. The Church, the Bride has had this process occur all throughout the Pentecostal Intermission as she has washed away all sin and wrinkle, spiritually speaking. For the Church, the Body of Christ, it has been a time of introspection, growing pains and repentance, a type of ’40 days’ in the wilderness for testing, not disciple. The point is that the Church has been going through tribulation since the very start of her Commission but it has not been judgment. The ‘Saints’ that will be found during the Tribulation period will be allowed to be overcome because they are not the Church and the Church will not be there at that time.
Moreover, one could take this thought further in insinuating that ‘Jesus’ is not there. How can this be? Because prophetically, Jesus will be mainly preoccupied with the Bema Seat evaluation of this Bride, and will be setting court to break the Seals of the Scroll having the Bride as the primary Witness. It is likened to a reading of a will. In practice, the reading of a will is done upon the death of the agent for the cause of his or her beneficiaries. In this case, Jesus having died but risen nonetheless qualifies to read His own will in this unique case. This will is the judgment of Lucifer and world that will be in tandem with the tribulation that will be used for the disciple of Israel. This is not to say that ‘Jesus’ cannot be anywhere at any time. It is just a prophetic reference point in why the ‘Saints’, will be allowed to be overcome.
As some interpret, the final prophetic ‘week of years’ is pertaining to national Israel and those that will subsequently come to faith in Jesus due to the efforts of the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and the 2 Witnesses. The point is that the Pentecostal Intermission period has been an amazing time in which the King, GOD the SON has indwelled a Believer by the power of the Holy Spirit, sealed forever. During the Tribulation period the People of YHVH will only be ‘marked’. Consider the following contrasts. The LORD Jesus in the Olivet Discourse prescribed that the Remnant of that generation flee to the mountains when they would see a type of the AntiChrist desecrate the Temple. The context was Jesus giving direction to His Disciples pertaining to national Israel.
This was a 2 fold prophetic entendre in that the 2nd Temple existed before the Pentecostal Intermission commenced and a 3rd Temple would be built after. To the Disciples, it was one continuous unbroken prophetic line of thought, events and time, unawares of the Pentecostal Intermission. The Disciples as the Prophets of old did not really grasp the Pentecostal Intermission of the New Man in Christ as there was to be no Temple for a long time although it was foretold in Hosea 3:4. As it pertained to the Disciples in the 1st Century, it is documented that none of the LORD’s Church perished in the subsequent Roman campaigns against Jerusalem leading up to the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70 AD; they ‘escaped’ up to the hills. Perhaps this was even a type of the Rapture to come when Sudden Destruction will befall the world in these Last Days. The Disciples had taken Jesus’ words of warning and fled or escaped. It will be no different during the Tribulation for Israel, not the Church.
For Israel, the end will be no different as once again the prophet Daniel alludes that the same people of the Prince that shall come will be from where the AntiChrist is to arise. It will be in those days that Jesus’ Disciples, i.e., national Israel as a type of His Church thereafter, will be taken to Petra to escape as the AntiChrist is given full power for the last half of the Tribulation. The point is that if the LORD provided His ‘Earthly’ Disciples a warning and way of escape from the persecution to come to national Israel before the Pentecostal Intermission and after such a time during the Tribulation Period, the Time of Jacob’s Troubles…the question is thus, how can He not, would He not also do this for His spiritual people, the Church, His Bride?
It would be in keeping with the pattern and promise of providing the Church a similar way of escape at the end of her most Royal and privileged Commission. Thus this study strongly suggests that the Bride of Christ cannot overlap the Commission of the 144,000 and that of the 2 Witnesses. “For it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the Earth. “But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet. – Luke 21:36-37
To reiterate, the ‘escape’ for the Bride will be the Blessed Hope that is peculiar amongst all types of Raptures because it includes the promise of the resurrection of the dead in Christ Jesus. This cannot be said of national Israel as a whole. Again, if this is the case for national Israel during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble that will encompass the Tribulation period, how can there not be a similar escape made for His spiritual Israel? More so in that this ‘spiritual Israel’ is comprising His crown, His prized possession as Isaiah states, His Bride. Will the Bride that has been forged out of the tribulation and trials that has constituted the 7-fold dispensation of prophetic Pentecostal Intermission since the 1st Pentecost be still lacking in disciple to have her partake of Israel’s disciple? No.
‘Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. “They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. – Malachi 3:16-17
Of course there are those that hold to the interpretation that the Church will overlap in the Tribulation, either the first half or especially the 2nd half. Many Christians erroneously presume the Church is to go through and be ‘raptured’ at the end of the wrath or pre-wrath, perhaps. The point is that even in the Olivet Discourse, the LORD prescribed an ‘escape’ for His Followers to take note of.

The Conclusive Tetrad
The LORD deals in patterns of 7s as with the 7-fold faceted timeframe of the Church Age that can be seen as a Menorah pattern. This is visualized in the book of Revelation by the LORD Himself depicted as the High Priest in the Heavenly Temple ministering in the midst to the 7 Churches of Lights, even to the end of the Age as He promised. Moreover the prophetic pattern of the ‘Church’ in the wilderness’ can be extrapolated to the Church Age in the following. There were 40 years of wandering before the Assembly could enter the Promised Land. In a typology, the natural self, the flesh and the carnal mind as the Bible metaphorically describes the condition and process of sanctification have to die first before the ‘Church’ can cross over to the Promised Land. A ‘new creation’ is required as much as flesh and bones cannot inherit the Kingdom of YHVH.
To cross over into the ‘Kingdom’, it requires a renewed generation or to be born anew. The number 40 speaks of testing, not judgment. Thus if one applies the Jubilee principle of the 120 years based on the Flood judgment pronounced by the LORD, the following prophetic mathematical equation alludes to how long the Church Age or the Pentecostal Intermission is to last approximately. One interpretation of the 120 year factor is not that it was how long Humanity’s lifespan was to degenerate to but that these were the amount of Jubilees Humanity was to be allotted on the prophetic time clock. A Jubilee count is 50 that in fact corresponds to the Pentecostal count from the First Fruits resurrection of the LORD to the gathering of the 120 Disciples in the Upper Room. Here again 120 is seen as the ‘code’ of the prophetic numerical coefficient used. Also 120 is the coefficient of the time, 1 month 20 days and 1,200 minutes of time or weeks, a complete reflection of the 7-fold age of churches within the Pentecostal Intermission.
40 year Testing x 50 Jubilee count = 2000 years (Church Age)
APR 14, 32 AD – APR 14, 2014 = 1982 year difference
1982 years to 2000 = difference of 18 years (6-6-6)
2014-15 Tetrad – 1982 year coefficient = 32 years (crucifixion year and age of AntiChrist?)
Thus this study presents the case that the Church Age is about to conclude in this generation. This is based on 2 possible confirming sign validating this time-span that is based on an astronomical Blood Moon and solar eclipse correlation. The 1st correlation is from the midnight Blood Moon of 32 AD that this study suggests is in fact when the crucifixion day occurred, to the start of the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad, exactly 1983 years. The 2nd correlation is that no other Tetrad before or after has a total solar eclipse exactly on the Spring Equinox that is also a Jewish New Year. What the point is that the Tetrad of 2014-15 might very well be the one that is to precede the Day of the LORD as foretold by the prophet Joel as a partial solar eclipse occurs on the Rosh HaShana. This is in essence a ‘code’ for a beginning and end duration of time; perhaps that of the Pentecostal Intermission?
There are other Tetrads that occur after 2014-15 as the ones in 2032, 2043, 2061, etc., none but the 2061-62 Tetrad have the consecutive 4 Feast days of YHVH, yet it does not have a total solar eclipse occurring in between the Blood Moons on a New Year nor Equinox. Thus the point is that the subsequent Tetrads in the future are a mixed-bag of that do not ‘fit’ the Joel prophecy as does the one exclusively in 2014-15. Erroneously many also have come to believe based on drawing renditions of the 2014-15 Tetrad that only 1 total solar eclipse occurs in the ‘middle’ of the Tetrad. This is not the case.
The Solar Eclipse Signature of the Tetrads
Again, what is unique about the 2014-15 Tetrad is that it has a Jewish New Year to New Year correspondence. The unique total solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox and Jewish New Year on March 20, 2015 is marking off a prophetic conclusion of a matter or Age perhaps with the partial solar eclipse of September 13, 2015, on Rosh HaShana. Could this allude to the end of the Pentecostal Intermission? The following shows that based on the NASA calculations of the 8 Tetrads since Christ none but the 2014-15 Tetrad has both a total solar eclipse occurring on the Equinox and Jewish religious New Year.

Blood Moon Pattern
Thus could the 2014-15 Tetrad be the prophetic time-marker that is to converge the ending of the Commission of the Church to that of the commissioning of the 144k and the 2 Witnesses based on the Equinox solar eclipse New Year’s code? Perhaps the end of the Church Age is to be somehow related to the Tetrad that ends in the Fall of 2015 or soon thereafter. From this time forward, no such Tetrads will have the 4 corresponding Feasts synchronized in a row with a total solar eclipse in the midst. The following is a speculative timeline based on this assertion that the Commission of the Church is about to end based on the 2 particular Blood Moons and New Year’s solar eclipse pattern. This study is supposing that the bench mark for the Church Age timeline could very well be pegged to the crucifixion year and the subsequent Pentecost. Specifically the Blood Moon near midnight of April 14, 32 AD will be pegged to the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad that also started amazingly on April 14 of 2014.
The April 14, 32 AD is a theory among many. Interesting, Isaac Newton rejected this date because he was highly influenced by the prevailing Roman Catholic dogma that Good Friday had to be the day of the crucifixion. Even great minds overlook the obvious. This study nonetheless holds to the belief that the year of the crucifixion was on 32 AD as some calculate it. The point is that the Pentecostal Intermission has been a special time interval between the 2nd and 3rd Temples, between the 1st Pentecost and perhaps a last one that remains to be determined. The calculations are not emphatically stating that the Rapture will occur on a Pentecost or that it has to be a specific year or fall on a Feast of YHVH. Based on these celestial parameters, several mathematical year calculations will nonetheless be presented for observation purposes only.
To reiterate, one day, the Church Age will end. This is predicated on the having the full measure of the Gentiles grafted in to the Plan of Salvation found in the Messiah of Israel, Jesus Christ. The Church Age or Intermission has been about the Royal Commission of taking the Good News of the King of the Universe, Jesus to the nations. It is about His redemptive work that is available to all the nations. This privilege was forfeited by national Israel as they rejected Jesus as their Messiah. Since that time, there has been a prophetic ‘Intermission’ of the Church that has primarily been made up of the nations to have taken the Gospel message to the Nations as national Israel has been side aside and has come under discipline and blindness. It will not be until Israel passes through the Time of Jacob’s Troubles that the disciple will be completed.
This final redemption or purification of national Israel will commence once the Church’s Commission is completed and is removed by the Rapture event. The end of the Pentecostal Intermission will allow the subsequent commissioning of the 144,000 to be particularly anointed to carry on the Gospel as well as the 2 Witnesses during the time of Jacob’s Trouble because the LORD will not leave Himself without a Witness. The Church was a mystery, a secret not revealed to the Prophets in full, although glimpses were alluded to as the multitudes in the wilderness during the Exodus as it was referred to as the ‘church’. In actuality, the word is just referencing a called out gathering.
The Commissioning of the Church
Amazingly, in Ephesians it declares that during the Church Age, the LORD has been teaching in the Heavenlies the Manifold Wisdom of GOD through the pattern of the true Church order on Earth. What is this Wisdom? In part it is that during this Pentecostal Intermission, a ‘picture’ of the divine character of order, humility and majesty is seen of who and what the GOD-Head is. The Head of the Church is Jesus as Jesus’s Head is the Father. GOD the Holy Spirit has submitted to the Headship of Christ Jesus as it has sealed and infused itself with the Church amazingly during the Pentecostal Intermission. The Church of Christ Jesus that is a euphemism also for ‘His Body’ has been given the Great Commission. This Commission is a Royal Commission based on the authority of the resurrected Jesus Christ, the New Covenant.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit has been given for such a task as the Gospel of repentance and the Kingdom to come to the whole world has been handled in each of the 7-fold prophetic generations by the true and faithful Church, i.e., His Bride. This is the divine pattern of godly humility that should also be reflective in the local true Churches, in godly marriages and the family unit. This is one facet of what the Church teaches or should. The point is that the true Church has not only become a school room for the Believers during this Pentecostal Intermission but for the Angels and Principalities on High and even the Fallen Ones who seek to destroy her are instructed and taught by her. As far as the Fallen Angels, their opposition comes from the fact that their heavenly thrones or seats of power shall be vacated and the Bride is to take their thrones of power after the Rapture.
What does the ‘Church’ also teach? It teaches that the Dispensation of Grace has allowed for the Gospel message of ‘whosoever calls on the Name of LORD Jesus will be saved’ based on unmerited favor to graft in non-Jews into the Plan of Redemption. In another part, the ‘manifold wisdom of GOD’ is that Christ has procured a Bride from redeemed sinners to co-rule what all is to come. This privilege is not based on works or the righteousness that the Law could impart but on the work of believing and implementing faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary work. According to the Bible’s teaching a substitutionary atonement was allowed for the fallen human race of Adam to pay the requirement and fulfil the work the Law; perfection as in complete holiness before the LORD. Jesus became this on behalf of Adam’s race, the 2nd Adam.
This New Creation commenced on Pentecost with the representative of the Bride, the prophetic 120 Disciples in the Upper Room and perhaps it will be consummated at such a similar time. The point being is that the Church during this Pentecostal Intermission has coincided with national Israel’s suspension as a prophetic witness. The witness of the Church is fast coming to a close. This study suggests that the Commission of the Church which is foretold to end cannot overlap once the LORD commissions the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and the 2 Witnesses. Now will the Tribulation period commence immediately following the Blessed Hope? That remains to be seen. One probability is certain that the 2 witnesses will center their testimony around the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. There is currently a new theory that asserts that perhaps the 3rd Temple will be actually located in the City of David.
A Spiritual Temple
As to the 3rd Temple being in the City of David, perhaps it is being mistaken for one of the fortresses of David or Solomon as in the Hall of Justice. Realize that Mt. Moriah was a threshing floor and became an altar that the LORD instructed King David to build as that was the place the LORD stayed the plague due to David’s sin of counting his army. An atonement thereafter was made on the very altar made at the place that would later become the Holy of Holies. The Ark would rest upon this precise spot where the blood of lambs and ultimately the Blood of The Lamb, Jesus would stay off the plague of sin for all Humanity.
Of course a Temple in the City of David could be a possibility but in the Middle East as in all ancient cultures the temples of the ‘gods’ were always at the highest point of the city or area. In Old Jerusalem, the Temple Mount is the highest point. Interestingly, it was the Psalms 113-118 that would be sung as worshipers of YHVH ascended up ‘to the mountain of the Lord, to the House of Jacob’….that cannot be said of the City of David as it is at a lower elevation. Another observation that lends credence to the Temple being on the Temple platform is based on the study of the Gates of Orion. Based on this theory, Jerusalem is configured astronomically upon the dimensions of the constellation Orion.
Many believe that is the actual location of the Heavenly Zion and House of YHVH. Amazingly the gates of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount exactly correlate to the star layout. What is prominent is that Orion’s 3 star belt corresponds to the al-Aqsa mosque, the Dome of the Rock and the Temple. The al-Aqsa is silver, corresponding to the Moon, the Dome is gold, corresponding to the Sun and the Holy of Holies corresponds to the ‘stars’ as the Shekinah Glory was as brilliant as the stars. Thus the Temple Mount is a picture of the witness of the majesty of YHVH in how the ‘Sun, Moon and Stars’ testify of the dimensions of YHVH’s Throne in the Heavenlies as they do on Earth.
Synchronization of Prophetic Time
To reiterate, one theory of the actual day of the crucifixion and subsequently the Church being birthed in 32 AD lends to some unique mathematical calculations. From April 14, 32 AD to Pentecost of that year is June 7th. This is reminiscent of the exact month and day that the Temple Mount would be liberated by the Jews in the 6-Day War of 1967, a Jubilee year as calculated by some. It would be exactly 1935 years since 32 AD. This 1935 numerical coefficient if correlated to the year 1935 would be 13 years from 1948 when Israel was birthed as a nation since 70 AD.
Another amazing mathematical relationship related to time is that the Blood Moons of both April 14, 32 AD and April 14, 2015 are mathematically in approximate relationship to the phi ratio to the Day of the LORD’s ascension and to the Feast of Pentecost 10 days later. It is a picture of precision and divine mathematics during this prophetic Intermission called the Church Age also that is about to end mathematically based on astronomical correlations then.
APR 14, 32 AD to APR 14, 2014 the last of the 7th Biblical Tetrad = 1982 years exactly
APR 14, 32 AD crucifixion to end of Tetrad SEP 28, 2015 = 1983 years 6 months 14 days
Start of Church Age
APR 18, 32 AD Resurrection + 50th Day Pentecost = June 7, 32 AD
JUN 07, 32 AD Pentecost to May 24, 2015 Pentecost = ~1983 years
MCMLXXXII = 1982 and 82rd year of the 20th Century
70 AD – 32 AD when the crucifixion took place and the Church began = 38 years
38 years is the time after the crucifixion and resurrection and Church at Pentecost that the 2nd Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av.
As it pertains to Pentecost in 2015, it will amazingly be aligned with the 3rd Blood Moon of the Tetrad, April 4, 2015 in a phi ratio of time. This Blood Moon in turn is synchronized to the 50th day which is Pentecost on May 24th. Most noticeably, it converges on the same day as observed by the Jewish calendar and the Western calendar. It will also be 10 days prior is a convergence of both Ascension Day that is the day of the Rapture of Jesus Christ to Heaven which coincides with Israel’s Independence Day on May 14. And again, the Spring Equinox total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 is extremely unique in that it spans the time from the Jewish religious New Year to the Jewish civil New Year. The following are some time factor for observation purposes only.
Eclipse on New Year MAR 20, 2015 to Rosh HaShana New Year SEP 13, 2015 = 177 days
APR 4 Blood Moon
Blood Moon + 50th Day = May 24, 2015 Pentecost (both Jewish and Western)
May 24 Pentecost – 10 days = May 14 Ascension and Israel’s Independence Day
JUN 07, 32 AD Pentecost + 1949 years = 1917 Liberation of Jerusalem
1917 – 1948 = 30th year (duration of astronomical/geometric season)
1917 + 49th Year = 1967 Liberation of Jerusalem Temple Mount
JUN 07, 32 AD + 1967 Temple Mount = June 7, 1999
Tetrad Blood Moons
2014 on Apr 14 – Nissan 5774 on Passover
2014 on Oct 08 – Tishri 5775 on Sukkot
2015 on Apr 04 – Nissan 5775 on Passover
2015 on Sep 28 – Tishri 5776 on Sukkot
Cycles of Time
If the Church Age is divided in equal times of prophetic 30 years = 30° of a circle.
30 x 12 = 360°
Then 360 prophetic cycles of time / by the 7 Church dispositions = 51 prophetic years.
Of note, 51.4° = Great Pyramid angle. In numerology, the number 51 is associated with baptism and a ladder. This is what the Pentecostal Intermission has been all about.
Israel’s Independence 1948 + 51 year cycle = 1999
Same year as JUN 07, 32 AD + 1967 Temple Mount = June 7, 1999.
Temple Mount acquired 1967 + 51 year cycle = 2018
Central Blood Moon in Triad over Jerusalem pegged to 2011, a 7 year cycle.
This year of 2018 will also correlate to Israel’s 70th year.
This study has only speculated the possible timing of the Rapture sequence based off the parody of what has constituted the Church Age. It has been pegged to the Passover Blood Moons that both occurred on April 14 and the New Year’s solar eclipses within the last Biblical Tetrad of 2014-15. Such Blood Moons on Passover occur but are somewhat rare when they are possibly narrowed down to a sequence of when the Rapture is to take place based on these astronomical patterns. As many correctly say, the Rapture does not need to take place on a Feast of YHVH but the Church was ‘born and commissioned on Pentecost. It is proper then to possibly contemplate if whether the end of the Commission of the Church could likewise take place on a Pentecost feast day. Nonetheless, the Pentecostal Intermission is all about a harvest, of souls and the Barley harvest does not occur at Pentecost but at Rosh HaShana.
Thus the Rapture could be an interface of both the conclusion of the Pentecostal Barley harvest that coincides with the beginning of the Wheat harvest in Rosh HaShana, which is an ‘in-gathering’ of the Barley. This could be a prophetic type as wheat is harder to separate from the chaff; it requires a tribulum, or a ‘tribulation’ to separate the unbelief and blindness of Israel. It is the Barley harvest that is brought in on Rosh HaShana that is also the start of the new economic year cycle where all debts are cleared. Prophetically it might well correspond to the Church in that at that point the Bride will have no ‘debt’ owed to the world nor Lucifer that is outstanding; tetelestai it has been all paid forward in full by the Blood of Jesus at the Cross. Thus prophetically, it is after the Pentecostal Intermission that the wheat harvest commences with national Israel in which a different protocol or procedure is required to harvest. Harvest is just really another term for separation, or sanctification where Israel will finally complete its ‘holiness unto the LORD’ as its name infers, a Prince before Elohim.
There are some presumed facts that are valid regarding Pentecost, Jesus ascended or was Raptured 10 days prior to Pentecost. Jesus did commission the Church and promised that He would be in her midst and that there would be an end date to His Royal Commission. The Church that was gathered in the Upper Room represented the ‘First Fruits of the Bride being 120 in number. This was the exact number of the Priests at the Temple required for full service and that were commissioned for the House sacrificial ordinances. Here is a splendid picture of how the LORD Jesus took the 120 lowly fisherman and commoners and made them a Royal Priesthood of Believers to be commissioned it the building of the LORD Spiritual House i.e., His bride. This study calls this mystery time the Pentecostal Intermission of the Church Age. Based on the 2 astronomical eclipse patterns, this Age could possibly be seeing the prophetic timelines converge at the ending of the last Biblical Tetrad since Christ that is marked exclusively by an Equinox and New Year’s prophetic ‘beginning and end’ time marker.
Any significant time beyond the 2014-15 Tetrad does away with the 49 year Jubilee pattern, the 50 and 70 year pattern since Israel became a nation in 1948 and when the Temple Mount was back in Jewish control in 1967. One thing is for sure, the Church Age is at its closing stages. As most can attest to, the prevailing morality of the mainline churches is that of Laodicea, the Apostate Church. In general, the Church is full of Nicholas’ and Jezebels, wolves in sheep’s clothing. Yet the LORD of the Church, the Head has preserved His Elect as in the time of Israel’s apostasy when 7,000 did not bow the knee to Ba’al. This doesn’t mean that every local church is in such a state. The prior 6 facets of the Church Age interface or overlap onto the subsequent ones, so there can be and there is a mixture of types because not all are at the same spiritual level of maturity as a Barley field does not all ripen at the same time. It is a mystery and a dichotomy in that the last phase of the Church that would be apostate would coincide to when the Bride would be made ready for the presentation to the King at the point of the Rapture.
It is a true testimony of how the LORD allowed the tares and the wheat to grow side by side until the very end of the Age, that of the conclusion to the Pentecostal Intermission. What is the remedy for apostasy? The Water and the Blood. Technically, the Bride of Christ was ’birthed’ at the side of Jesus as the spear wound pierced His heart and opened His side as the King was hanging on the Cross. It was the Water and Blood that came out form His side like Adam was opened up on his side. It was from there that Eve was ‘built’. This would prophetically signal the type of elements that where to be used as cleansing agents throughout the Pentecostal Intermission to construct His ‘Eve’ with and keep her from apostasy. These holy elements from the King were divinely prescribed to one day present the Bride washed by the Blood of the Lamb and cleansed of mind by the renewing of the Word as washing with water done by the power of the Holy Spirit.
To reiterate, this study of the Pentecostal Intermission has only suggested a prophetic pattern that could be a possibility of when the Church Age is to conclude. If the April 14, 32 AD date is the actual date of the crucifixion, and subsequent Pentecost year, then perhaps the April 14 is a direct ‘code’ or correlation that is marked or pegged to the 2014-15 Tetrad that started also on April 14. This peculiar Tetrad of 2014-15 specifically has a total solar eclipse not only occurring in the midst of the pair of Blood Moons but on the beginning of the Jewish religious New Year that in turn is pegged to the subsequent civil New Year.
The point of this study has been that if the 2014-15 Tetrad that started in April 14 is pegged to the Blood Moon of April 14, 32 AD, then it would possibly be connected in some mysterious way to the ending of the Church’s Commissioning soon thereafter. This study does acknowledge though that the Church Age did overlap with about 38 years of Temple sacrifices still in practice. Could there also be such a similar overlap as the 3d Temple is constructed and perhaps the Church Age is to likewise overlap even the same amount to years? It remains to be seen. Why was this allowed by the LORD? The key is the 40 year pattern of ‘testing’.
This countdown to the destruction of the Temple and the ceasing of the sacrificial ordinances commenced with the public ministry of Jesus. Jesus as the Messiah and King of Israel rightful put Israel to the test as they were with Moses in the wilderness. It was a test to see what was in their hearts. Sadly as in the wilderness test of 40 years, the hearts were not right and the birthright and privilege of the Kingdom, the Promised Land was given to a new generation, i.e., a new birth as in the Church.
~30 AD around start of Jesus’ ministry + 40 year ‘testing’ period for Israel = 70 AD
Again if 32 AD is the year of the crucifixion and start of Church Age, 38 years from that date, the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD. This is well within the 40 year time prophetic Trial period for Israel as it was in the wilderness that this study suggests was pegged to Jesus’ start of ministry as the One greater than Moses had arrived. This study thus suggests that perhaps the 40 year countdown to the testing of Israel started with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. It was not Israel that was ‘testing’ Jesus although the Pharisees did but it was the King, the Lord of the Vineyard that tested the ‘fruit’ of Israel, it failed to produce any fruit and subsequently the land was given to another and this allowed the Gentiles to be grafted in. As the false religious leaders of Israel cursed Jesus and to this day, it was Jesus who ‘cursed’ Israel in the event of the fig tree that withered for baring no fruits as Jesus passed and sought some.
What this study has sought to bring out is that in no other year in the decade except 2015 is there such a synchronization of the timelines that incorporates the coefficient of the 40 years of testing. In this year, Shavuot is synchronized with the western observance of Pentecost, Ascension Day with Israel’s birthday. Also consider that if as many are purporting that the 2015-2022 timeline might start with the Fall Feasts of YHVH to correspond with Daniel’s last prophetic week, then 2022 minus the 40 year pattern of ‘testing’ would be a difference of 1982 years. This is the exact number of years from when Pentecost occurred in 32 AD to the start of the final Biblical Tetrad of 2014-25.
2022 – 40 year ‘test’ pattern = 1982 compared to 32 AD to 2014 Tetrad = 1982 years
This assertion of when the Church Age is to conclude is subject to debate but the eclipse Pentecostal Intermission patterns presented in this study are nonetheless amazing to consider and contemplate.
