June 2, 2019 Pentecost and the meaning for Israel and the Christian Church


On June 9, Pentecost, the church celebrates the birthday of the Christian Church when the Holy Spirit came as tongues of fire to the assembled believers after the Ascension of Christ. The excellent enclosed article by Chance covers many of the details that are important for this date and I will cover some additional ones here.

The number 70 plays a very significant part in these additional observations as well as the feast of Pentecost which is tied to this number also.

The law was given to Moses on the day of Pentecost at Mount Sinai. The observance of a Sabbath year (Shemitah) every 7 years was part of the law as well as the observance of a Jubilee year every 50 years.

At the time of the Prophet Jeremiah the people of Israel had disobeyed God and ignored the Shemitah years 70 times for a total of 70 x 7 = 490 years. As punishment for this sin the nation of Israel was driven into exile by the Babylonians for 70 years ( https://biblehub.com/niv/jeremiah/25.htm ).

At the end of the 70 years of exile the prophet Daniel was asking God when the end of the exile was as he thought the seventy years were over and the Lord gave him a reply ( https://biblehub.com/niv/daniel/9.htm )  of a prophecy of seventy weeks of years for the complete restoration of Israel that would be the same amount of time (70×7 =490 years) to :

25“Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, f the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. g The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolation’s have been decreed. 27He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ h In the middle of the ‘seven’ i he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple j he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. kl.

This prophecy which gives a timeline for the complete restoration of Israel is the most profound and detail prophecy given to the Nation of Israel. The start and the end of the count are specifically given to the day, but it is also one of the most difficult to interpret.

The start was with the order of King Cirus of Medo-Persia issued the order to restore and rebuild Jerusalem exactly (7+62)x7=69×7= 483 years till the Anointed (Jesus) will be put to death at 3PM on Passover 30 AD, thus fulfilling to the second the first 69 weeks of years and leaving one week of years for the future fulfillment.

Forty years after the first part of this prophecy was fulfilled ( 40 years found extensively in the past history of Israel as judgements) and on the year 70 AD a second destruction of Jerusalem and a hundreds of years exile was ordained for this rebellious nation that had crucified their Messiah as the perfect sacrificial lamb on Passover 40 years earlier. This time the sin was exceedingly greater and the punishment suitable to the crime.

The final fulfillment of the prophecy a one week of years of 360 days or 2,520 days could start this feast of Pentecost (June 8-10) as well as the Rapture and Resurrection of the Christian Church.

This is the rationality for this conclusion:

After a long exile that started in 70 AD the Jewish nation was born again on May 14, 1948 (Isaiah 66:8) ( https://biblehub.com/niv/isaiah/66.htm) which fell that year on the feast of Shavuot or Pentecost.

Since that date there will have been exactly 70 Shavuot or Pentecost till next June 9 2019. To commemorate this fact the State of Israel has issued a coin a shekel with the face of King Cirus and President Trump on one side to compare the recognition of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel by the US the equivalent ruler to the Medo-persians of old.

The end part of this prophecy has a very important start that is not the preceding interpretation and it is given as a ruler who will confirm a covenant of seven years (one week of years or the last week of the Daniel prophecy) which at the middle of the time he will break and stop the sacrifices offered at the Temple and defile it with an abomination which causes desolation. This man is what Christians refer as the Beast or the 666 or the Antichrist or the rider of the first white horse of the book of Revelation.

The totality of the church taken away God then reverts back to dealing with Israel as He did in the times before Jesus.

Can this ruler be Trump, can it be Obama, can it be someone else, can this be the time? I leave you with this thought to ponder. Included below is the link to the article by Chase.
