Dec 11, 2016 Castro’s death and Jonathan Cahn’s proclamation of the Jubilee in Cuba

I was in Cuba at the time that Fidel started his revolution and for my family and friends it was the beginning of a long exile that is still going on.

For the people of Cuba and the world the cancer of Fidel’s communist ideology has and is festering and multiplying throughout the whole world where it is still ingrained and destroying nations and people, as in Venezuela.

Thanks to Denis Hart for such a good article.

The Lord Jesus will reign in the whole world soon.

Will the Son of Man find FIDEL (FAITH) on the Earth?


Will the Son of Man find FIDEL (FAITH) on the Earth?

Luke 18:8  (Amplified)  I tell you that He will defend and avenge them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [this kind of persistent] FAITH on the Earth?

The passing of Fidel Castro may be far more important as a prophetic signal than we realise!!  During the week I came across a truly remarkable article by Jonathan Cahn on  Cuba on the World Net Daily website (www.wnd.com).  The article is titled The Day Jonathan Cahn Gave a Prophetic Sign to Fidel Castro – the direct link to the article is below:

http://www.wnd.com/2016/12/the-day-jonathan-cahn-gave-a-prophetic-sign-to-fidel-castro/?cat_orig=faith

This article is primarily about a one month opportunity for evangelism in Cuba in 1999, that has had to be hidden until now.  For those Doves who have not seen the article, I strongly recommend reading the full article.  It includes the shofar, the Magi, Jubilee timings for Fidel Castro and a meeting in the presidential palace between Johnathan Cahn and Fidel!  The ashes of Fidel Castro have been laid to rest in the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery, with a lone memorial a grey/white boulder and a black plaque engraved simply with FIDEL!    

The name FIDEL has the meaning of FAITH (derived from FAITHFUL).  What an amazing example of God’s sovereignty over nations that He causes just one word (FAITH!!) to be written on the grave of one who ruled as a dictator for so long over Cuba.  And the poignant question in Luke 18:8 – will He find Faith on the Earth!! 

FIDEL or Faith – one word on the grave of a dictator.

Maranatha!!  Denis

As the ashes of Fidel Castro are now laid to rest in Santiago, Cuba, I am at liberty to tell the story that’s waited years to be told.

In 1999, for the first time since he took power in 1959, Fidel Castro agreed to open up the island of Cuba for the Gospel, under much control and surveillance, and for only one month. By this he would show the world that there was ‘freedom’ in Cuba – an evangelical celebration that would span the island from the east, where Castro’s revolution began, to Revolutionary Square, Havana, where he began his rule.

Word was sent to me to open the celebration with the sounding of the shofar. I agreed.

THE MAGI PROPHECY

One week before leaving, a man from Cuba came to us. He was a pastor who had been imprisoned on the island for his faith. He gave us a strange word. He said we would walk the island of Cuba as the magi, bearing gifts, and we would enter the king’s palace.

We were told we would go to Cuba as the magi, bearing gifts, and enter the palace of the king

I prayed as to what word I should bring to the people of Cuba. What came to me was the message of Jubilee. The Jubilee concerns those who have lost their land, their family’s possession, their freedom. That was Cuba. So I came to Cuba proclaiming the God’s Jubilee, His power to set free those in bondage and to bring restoration.

Everything you’ve always wanted to know from “The Harbinger Man.” See WND’s complete collection of books and DVDs by biblical teacher Jonathan Cahn!

But I came also with something for Fidel Castro. I purposed that if God would open the door, I would give Castro a Bible, a letter, and a shofar, the Trumpet of Jubilee, the vessel used in biblical times to proclaim freedom throughout the land.

When we landed in Cuba we had to pass through an inspection with Cuban police going over everything in our luggage. The one thing that held us up was the Jubilee shofar. They didn’t know what it was and approached it as if it was a dangerous weapon. I decided to take the shofar, and show them how it worked. I sounded it. They looked stunned, but then let us go.

In the following weeks, I spoke in churches and gatherings throughout the island to give hope and encouragement to the believers of Cuba. In place after place, Cubans came up to me and those with me to tell us that they saw visions of us coming specifically as the magi.

It was then that I realized the full significance of the word given to us before we left. As the magi had come to an unlikely place to witness the newborn life of God, so had we now come to Cuba to witness God’s newborn presence there, a revival was about to break forth. Our gift to the believers of Cuba was to strengthen and encouragement them in the Lord.

At the same time, as in the account of the magi, there was opposition to that new life. There was a throne and an aging king on that throne who was fearful that the presence of Jesus in his land would be a threat to his regime. To the people of God, the magi’s visitation was a sign of hope and blessing. But to the king it was a sign of alarm, something to be closely watched, and ultimately a portent of the end of his reign.

THE JUBILEE

The month long celebration of the Gospel opened up at the island’s eastern end as I sounded the shofar in the first public evangelical gathering in the public squares of Cuba since the revolution. The communist officials watching all around me inquired why I was blowing the “Jewish horn.” Someone else was watching – Fidel Castro.

The events were being televised throughout the island. The word soon came back to us that Castro wanted to know “Who is this man with the beard causing such a ruckus? And “What is this Jewish man doing in the churches?”

It turned out we were retracing the footsteps of Castro’s revolution – but with a very different message and of a very different revolution. I was proclaiming the Gospel and the power of God for Jubilee, for freedom and restoration.

As I spoke of these things, my translator, a man named Felix, would hesitate at times to repeat them, knowing that in virtually every place, there were secret police and informers planted in the gathering, ready to report any word considered suspicious. And just as potentially dangerous, all over the island, on church buildings, houses, walls, and taxi cabs there were now posters plastered proclaiming the words ‘El Jubileo Vienne!” “the Jubilee is Coming” or “Freedom and Release is Coming,’ above a photograph of me sounding the shofar.

THE BOY NAMED ‘FAITH’

Fidel Castro as a boy

Fidel Castro as a boy

On the way to Havana, I picked up a book about Fidel Castro and religion. Most people don’t’ realize that his name, ‘Fidel,’ means ‘faith.’ But as a young boy, Fidel had begun to lose faith. He told the story of how each year, at Christmas time, he would write a letter – to the magi. And every year he would get a cardboard trumpet. When he realized the magi didn’t exist, he began to lose his faith. So it all started with a boy named ‘Faith,’ who first began to lose his faith over the magi. From this would ultimately come atheism, a revolution, prison camps, firing squads, and years of suffering for an entire nation – even the banning of the celebration of Christmas. And now here we were, coming to Havana, as magi and I happened to be led to bring Fidel Castro the gift of a trumpet – of Jubilee.

‘AND EVERY MAN SHALL RETURN’

The last stop before Havana was the province of Camiguey. It was my translator’s last night of ministry. He had to return to America the next day. I had no idea when I first asked him to join me that he had been born in Cuba, and that his family lost everything in the revolution, their possessions and their ancestral land. They fled to America where he grew up. There he came to the Lord. His dream and prayer was that one day he would return to Cuba and to his family’s land and his lost inheritance, and there build a church in which he would preach the Gospel. It was ironic that as I was preaching the Jubilee to Cuba, the restoration of every man to his ancestral land, the one translating that message had himself lost his ancestral land in the Cuban revolution.

Everything you’ve always wanted to know from “The Harbinger Man.” See WND’s complete collection of books and DVDs by biblical teacher Jonathan Cahn!

That night, they took us to the place they had chosen for us to minister in, a farm in the middle of nowhere, so much in the middle of nowhere that they had to transport the people to us by cattle car. Before ministering, I looked for my translator. He was wandering around the farm in a daze. I asked him what had happened. He had just discovered that the land to which we had been brought to minister – was his ancestral land. It was his family’s farm, the inheritance he had lost in the revolution, the place he had for years prayed he would one day return to.

So here on his last night, God had brought him home. It was what I had been preaching all along throughout the land, and what he had been all along translating – the Jubilee, the restoration – “And every man shall return to his property.” And so his journey ended with the fulfillment of that Scripture, and that prayer. And as for the church he had dreamed of building there, it had already been built, and was waiting for him to enter it. That night he preached inside the church of his ancestral land. He didn’t realize it until that moment but he had been a sign to Cuba, all along, with every footstep, of restoration.

THE CASTLE AND THE STAR

We arrived in the capital city of Havana. Every day there, I would gaze out my hotel room to see a centuries-old Spanish castle by the sea.

The Castle by the Sea, El Morro, Havana, Cuba

I was strongly led that we had to go to the castle and see what was inside. So we did. We walked through its ancient chambers. As we turned a corner, we suddenly beheld a massive painting that stunned us. The painting depicted the magi. It turned out that the castle we were in was one of the central national symbols of Cuba. And it was called “The Castle of the Three Kings.” And in the painting, standing next to the magi was a boy holding in his hand an object that looked like a shofar – the very thing I was now bringing to Havana.

The magi followed a star. That was the one thing missing from our journey. We joked, wondering if we would somehow see a star in Havana. We decided to go to Revolutionary Square, to pray on the site on which the evangelical gathering would take place the following day. We entered the Jose Marti Memorial, the towering monument that marks the square. The government official inside began to reveal that the tower had been built so that from the sky it would form a star.

The tower was built as a star – and as the star of the magi, it would mark the final destination of our journey – actually the final two destinations: the square in which God’s people would gather together the following day, and the Presidential Palace from which Fidel Castro ruled the island. And as in the nativity account, the star would be linked to the presence of Jesus on one hand – and an aging king and a dying kingdom on the other. And it was then that we realized that we had been gazing at the star every night as we looked out the window of our hotel room in Havana, ablaze with light in the darkness, marking our final destination.

The following day we stood in the midst of the multitudes gathered for the first evangelical celebration in Revolutionary Square. Fidel Castro also stood there witnessing the gathering that filled the plaza that had once been filled with Cubans welcoming his revolution to Havana. Now it was filled for a different purpose. It was there that arrangements began that would open the doors for the fulfillment of our mission.

THE PROPHETIC SIGN AND COUNTDOWN

I received an invitation to enter the Presidential Palace. I walked past the guards and was greeted by one of Castro’s assistants, who informed me that the “Comandante” was very much aware of me and was watching my journey through Cuba. I was brought inside and presented the gifts, the Bible, a note with a message I had written him, and the shofar, the Trumpet of Jubilee. Castro would later send word thanking me for the gifts. He also wanted to know how I could be Jewish and believe in Jesus. The Central Communist Committee also sent word inquiring into the shofar.

Giving the Trumpet of Jubilee to Fidel Castro was a biblical reminder of the power of God for freedom, and a prophetic sign that His power was greater than the bondages of man. The Cuban revolution had caused millions of Cubans to lose their land, their homes, their ancestral possessions, their inheritances, and their freedom – the very thing the Jubilee touches and undoes. It had all begun as the Batista government collapsed and Castro and his guerillas swept into the city of Havana at opening of 1959.

But the Jubilee Trumpet was linked to a mathematical formula to the ending of bondage The Jubilee contains a very specific countdown: “You shall count off seven sevens of years – seven times seven years – so that the seven sevens of years amounts to a period of forty nine years. Then you shall sound the trumpet….” (Leviticus 25)

What happens if one takes the biblical countdown of Jubilee and applies it to Castro’s reign, starting with the year 1959, the moment Cuba lost its freedom? Count “seven sevens of years, seven times seven years – so that the seven sevens of years amounts to a period of forty nine years.” And to what does that bring us? It brings us to the year 2008. Did anything significant happen in 2008? 2008 was the year that ended the rule of Fidel Castro. His entire reign, from 1959 to 2008, comprised the seven sevens of years, the 49 years of the countdown, ordained by God of the Jubilee – to the release of bondage.

What if one gets even more specific – to days and dates? What if we begin the countdown from the specific day Castro came to power and count a Jubilee of years and a Jubilee of days, seven sevens of years and of days. Castro’s reign began specifically on New Year’s Day, January 1, 1959 in the wake of Batista’s fleeing the island. If one starts the countdown from that day, January 1, 1959, and counts a Jubilee of years and a Jubilee of days, seven times seven years and seven times seven days, the countdown culminates on February 19, 2008. Was there anything significant about that day? After nearly a half century, the rule of Fidel Castro came to its end on February 19, 2008, the exact day. On the day of release, Castro was released from power, and Cuba was released from his reign.

When I asked the Lord for what word I was to give to Cuba, when I proclaimed the Jubilee throughout the communist nation, when I gave to Castro the Trumpet of Jubilee, and when the posters were plastered throughout the island proclaiming “El Jubileo Viene!” “The Jubilee is Coming!” behind it all was a mystery and a precise prophetic countdown to the end. The Jubilee was indeed coming, and it would come for Castro’s rule at its biblically appointed time. His reign would be timed to the end of the 49th year and to the 49th day, and not a day longer – the mathematics of the release from bondage ordained three thousand years earlier. That day would bring the most enduring iron grip of power held by any man over any nation in modern history to a definitive end.

THE OTHER KING

I have sometimes wondered since then, when Fidel Castro looked at the Jubilee Trumpet I gave him, did he ever realized its significance. I pray that before he left this life he turned back to the One from the boy named “Faith” once turned away, and found forgiveness for his sins.

In the Biblical account, the aging king Herod dies, but the new born life of Bethlehem, the life of Messiah, goes on – to overcome kingdoms and change the world.

As I watched the thousands of Cubans paying their last respects to their aged leader, as they lined up to enter the Jose Marti Memorial, I wondered if they realized that they were heading to a star. Fidel Castro’s funeral took place at that same star monument which marked the destination of our journey and which, as the star of Bethlehem had marked for the magi, had marked for us both the ending of a dying kingdom, and the birth of God’s presence, the light of hope, a light shining in the darkness.

Castro has passed away, as did King Herod, and as do all the kings and rulers of this world, and as do all those who, as Castro once did, tried to stamp out the Gospel. But the revival that began under Castro’s rule has not been stamped out. For kings and kingdoms, rulers and tyrants, all pass away, but the name of Messiah remains.

Castro has died – but Jesus lives. And as the dictator’s ashes were laid to rest in the city of Santiago, the presence of Jesus was and is as alive throughout the island as much as it ever was. It is even at this moment transforming the lives of Cubans in a way that Castro’s revolution, with all its guns and powers of state, never could. The Jubilee that began on our visit to the island has not stopped, but continues.

The King lives … and the Revolution goes on.

Nov 13, 2016 The Lord answered Christians prayers but Trump is not our saviour

The Lord Jesus Christ answered the prayers of Christians who interceded in favor of Trump to win the election. As this wonderful article below clearly states God answered our prayers and prevented Mrs. Clinton from winning the presidency.

It is clear that plan of the evil one has been thwarted, but it would be naive to think that the prophetic word of God will not be fulfilled 100% as written.

The word tells us that these are the end times and that the Apocalypse is around the corner, so read the article below and continue praying for the intervention and protection of God for the believers and the Nation of Israel as things are going to get pretty rough in the days ahead.

Still Not Our Savior

By Donna Wasson


“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:15-16 (KJV)

“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” Psalm 118:8 (KJV)

“Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.” Jeremiah 17:5, 7 (KJV) (Emphasis mine)

Well, the fat lady sang and Jezebel was cast down from her high tower, spattering blood and guts all over the pavement for the dogs to lick up. Excuse me for mixing metaphors here, but you get the idea. Poor Hildabeast. The brass ring she’s worked 40+ years to grasp was at her fingertips, only to be snatched away by a neophyte with a spray-on tan and a bad comb over. Just think of all the animals sacrificed and infant blood consumed during those pot-luck, Spirit Cooking sessions she attended, in her quest for power; all wasted.

My son Ben gets the prize for the best description of the shocking upset of Donald Trump winning the presidency: “Well, now Hillary Clinton knows firsthand what it feels like to be aborted right before birth!” That’s my boy!

There are a few things about this election that the Lord wants me to point out to you, dear readers. First of all, there is no doubt the defeat of Hillary Clinton was a bona fide miracle resulting from Almighty God’s gracious answer to the pleas of His people all over the world. Do not forget that, and be sure to give glory to the One to whom glory is due.

According to WND, believers all across the world were corporately praying throughout election night, interceding, repenting, and begging for the mercy of God on this nation. The timing of when the election results began to turn around is astounding! Simply astounding. Our God reigns and DOES hear the prayers of His people. Please take a couple of minutes to read the following article.

http://mobile.wnd.com/2016/11/signs-of-divine-intervention-in-trump-victory/

However, despite this unfamiliar, delightful tinge of hope in the air, Trump is STILL not our savior. He is only one man, up against a House of Representatives and Senate filled with corrupt, globalist elite who live to engineer methods of lining their pockets through backroom deals, and who schemed to ensure he wasn’t elected. You’re deluding yourself if you think Mr. Trump will be able to keep 1/10th of his promises, even with a Republican congress. He plans to upset their applecart, “drain the swamp” so to speak, and they aren’t about to allow that!

He’s also going to have to continue to deal with a very angry liberal mainstream media who hates his guts, and will go to any length to derail his presidency before it even gets started.

Add to all that the thousands of liberals currently rioting and sniveling in their tai-soy, sugar-free lattes, while damaging the vehicles and businesses of hardworking Americans, all because things didn’t go their way for once. These people have nothing better to do than post vitriolic hatred on their Facebook pages and tweet whining appeals for someone to assassinate a man who was fairly elected, which is highly illegal. I hope the FBI identifies these panicking snowflakes and arrests them for making terroristic threats, just like they did when Obama was first elected!

I must admit, I remember the weeks-long demonstrations, riots and pillaging conservatives committed after both of Obama’s elections. Oh, wait…that’s right. There were no demonstrations or acting out! Conservatives tend to respect the rule of law and property rights. You know, the characteristics of grown-ups?

I’ve stated before that I greatly fear for this man’s life and that of his family. IF he lives to be sworn into office on January 20, 2017, the uphill battle he’ll be forced to wage during his tenure will make his election campaign look like a carefree vacation. I don’t know how anyone can possibly cope with that much resistance and subterfuge. Pray for him and for Vice President Pence. The enemy and minions of hell are gnashing their teeth in rage right now.

As you probably already know, these demonstrations against Trump’s election are being organized and funded by everyone’s favorite Nazi collaborator, George Soros. His anarchic organizations, MoveOn.org and BlackLivesMatter.org are behind bussing in and paying thousands of rioters to blend in with peaceful demonstrators to cause chaos. That’s pretty much all Soros knows how to do. Foment chaos and destruction. Dude really needs to get an honest job! So, what you’re seeing on your TV news is in large part, fake rage.

There are several scenarios that can result from this.

The parents of the millennials who are wasting time marching, could threaten to lock them out of the house if they don’t knock it off. That would be nice, but I don’t see that happening. The vast majority of the parents of these self-absorbed morons are left over, drug-addled hippies of the late 60’s and early 70’s, and are just as upset Hillary didn’t win. After all, they were really counting on that free college tuition for their little darlings!

I find it telling that Obama and Hillary aren’t speaking out against these rioters. Hmm, kinda makes me wonder if they’re colluding with Soros to allow destruction by their obvious silence. If either one of them were a true leader of any worth, they would make a joint appearance and tell the sensitive little crybaby brats to go home, and prepare to get one of the jobs that will hopefully come back to this country. No more sleeping in till noon.

If Obama and/or Hillary refuse to enter the fray and call for calm, you can lay the destruction at their feet. Will Obama allow and even tacitly encourage the riots to continue and spread, leading to a declaration of martial law? I put nothing past the man. He has but little time left to finish off America.

Then, there’s NATO, who continues to provoke and aggravate Russia by their build-up of military assets and hardware at Russia’s border. Contrary to mainstream media reports, WE are the aggressors in this frosty relationship. Putin is no angel, but he has demonstrated incredible restraint in the face of being bullied, threatened, maligned and nonsensically blamed for interference in America’s business.

We have NO right trying to depose Assad. NONE. Just like we had no business going into the Middle East to bomb and foment regime change in Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. What the Bush and Obama administrations have done over there is ALL about the oil, folks. It’s all about a pipeline the globalists want to run through Turkey to supply Europe and cut Russia out of its main source of income. It’s not about trying to spread democracy. What a load! No, it’s all about greed, pure and simple. Innocent civilian deaths are just a part of doing business to these wicked leaders.

Will Obama and NATO continue to flick the ear of Putin, daring him to launch an attack in defense of his country, or that of his ally, Syria? The industrial military complex President Eisenhower warned us about in his final address to the American people, love nothing more than war and carnage. There’s lots of money to be made in the death and destruction of others, and they are salivating at the prospect of WWIII.

That’s one reason the Powers That Be hate Trump so much. He is a reasonable man who’s not interested in ruling the world. He’s genuinely interested in making deals with other countries that are in America’s favor, but which also benefit the other party. Oh, that this were a different era…I honestly believe he’s got the potential to be one of the greatest presidents this country has ever seen.

But, this time in history is NOT normal by any stretch. These are still the last days, people. God may have been merciful to block Hillary from office, but that doesn’t mean America will be turned around. Happy days are NOT here again. Sorry. Like I said, Donald Trump is only one man. Just a flawed human being up against impossible odds and increasing powers of darkness over this land.

You want to know why America will not be restored? Because we don’t deserve to be restored! That’s why! There is little to no repentance for our national sins and abominations against the God of our fathers. As clearly demonstrated from the election results, nearly half of the citizens of this country have been infected with Marxist/Communist ideology from our schools and universities over the last 50 years. The rest still cling to the Constitution, and at least have some respect for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, even if they don’t consider Jesus to be their Lord and Savior.

Then, there are the Christians-in-name-only, who warm the cushy pews of the mega-churches and cathedrals, listening to a different gospel every week consisting of prosperity doctrine, or “loving” acceptance of all sorts of sinful lifestyles. You really believe God will hear to their prayers, when even THEY don’t see their need to repent and return to the basic tenets of the Bible?!

Do you realize how very small the remnant of true, God-fearing, Christ loving, cross-dragging Christians there are in America? Think about it. Seriously. It’s a pretty small club. That’s because membership is so expensive. It costs us everything to join and remain in good standing. To be considered, all hopes, dreams, desires, plans, flagrant sins, and ambitions have to be surrendered at the foot of the cross. Not only that, this commitment must be continually pondered and updated. We no longer live for ourselves or earthly things; our goal is to further the Kingdom of our Jesus.

It’s a mighty tough row to hoe, and most people just don’t want to live their lives like that. It ain’t fun sometimes! But, it is and will be well worth it in the end.

Were America filled with true Christians as described above, I do believe there would be great hope to restore this nation to its former glory and standing in the world as a shining beacon on a hill. But it’s not filled with believers like that. Not even close. Read the book of Jonah and see for yourself what it took to avert the judgment and destruction of Nineveh. Every single being with a heartbeat from royalty to the beasts of burden, was commanded by the King to fast and repent in sackcloth and ashes, for the sins of the city, and to beg God for mercy.

Can you see that happening in America? Did it happen after 9/11? Nope. That was a stern warning shot across the bow, but the churches were only filled for about 3 weeks until everyone returned to business as usual. Since 9/11, we’ve overthrown the historical basic unit of human families, traditional marriage between one man and one woman, in favor of sodomite unions.

Hillary Clinton and her crowd have no problem openly admitting their belief that murdering a full-term, viable baby, partially hanging out of the birth canal, is perfectly acceptable in their eyes. What’s the big deal? After all, in her words, the unborn have no rights. Tell that to the Creator, Hildabeast!

Nope, people, I’m sorry. America will not be turned around, nor restored. Nor, should it be. Why would anyone believe we garner God’s favor or deserve His blessing? Read your Bibles and pay attention to how He dealt with rebellious, wicked nations. He warned and warned the people through prophets; He allowed their crops/livestock to be destroyed; He sent destructive storms and disease to get their attention; when all else failed, He delivered them into the hands of their enemies. EVEN ISRAEL, His chosen people, were taken captive by the Assyrians and the Babylonians.

What in the world makes us think He won’t deal the same way with us?  In my ever so humble opinion, the Lord mercifully answered the plea of His people to keep Hillary Clinton out of office. This might possibly make life in the United States a little easier until judgment comes. Perhaps it will be worse. Perhaps Trump will end up being our worst nightmare, although I’ll admit it’s unlikely anyone could top the Hildabeast in that category.

All I know is America remains unrepentant and rebellious against a very Holy God. He’s watching right now to see who will put their faith and trust in the man, Donald Trump, to provide for and protect their future, and who will continue to look to Him for the same. I am delighted and relieved that Hillary didn’t win, but one fact remains:

Donald Trump is STILL not our Savior.

June 17, 2016 The Orlando and Tel Aviv attacks and their prophetic significance by JD Faraq

As usual pastor JD Faraq comments on the Muslim terrorists attack of this past week show us in stark contrast the position taken by Obama’s administration as well as the UN and the many news organizations with their bias against Israel and the true Bible believing Christians.

He exposes the lie that Islam is a peaceful religion and states truthfully that Islam’s more than 120 verses extol their followers to strike terror and kill or enslave non-believers and especially Jews and Christians.

It is out of ignorance or with full evil intent that the true nature of Islam and their false prophet and god are not exposed for the Satanic evil that they are.

Faraq gives a message of salvation at the end of the video and explains the simple message of the Gospel to free men of their bonds of death caused by sin.

The Perfect Numbers

By Randy Nettles

This article is a continuation and expansion of a previous article I wrote titled, “Multiples of Seven.” [1] If you are not familiar with the Feasts of the Lord and some of the prophecies of Daniel, you might want to read this article for a better understanding of this article’s theme. Some of the information regarding the perfect numbers is taken from E.W. Bullinger’s book titled, Number in Scripture.

The number 7 is one of the four so-called perfect numbers of the Bible. The numbers 3, 10, and 12 are the three other perfect numbers. The number 3 is the number for divine perfection, 7 is the number for spiritual perfection, 10 is the number for ordinal perfection, and 12 is the number for governmental perfection.

Although the number 5 is not considered one of the perfect numbers, it is significant; as it signifies grace. Briefly, without going into too much detail, here are a few illustrations of these “perfect” numbers.

The number 3 is associated with the Godhead, for there are “three persons in God.” The first occurrence of the number 3 is in Genesis 1 and describes the third day of creation.

“And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so” (Genesis 1:9).

On the third day the earth was caused to rise up out of the water, symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Three is the number of resurrection, for it was on the third day that Jesus rose again from the dead. It was at the third hour that He was crucified; and it was for 3 hours (from the 6th to the 9th) that darkness enveloped the land.

The number 10 represents the completeness of entire cycle is complete. Noah completed the antediluvian age in the tenth generation. The Ten Commandments contain all that is necessary for the law to be complete. The Lord’s Prayer is completed in 10 clauses. The 10 plagues were representative of the complete circle of God’s judgments on Egypt.

The Antichrist’s world power is comprised of 10 kings/kingdoms, symbolized by the 10 toes on the feet of the image of Neuchadnezzar’s dream; and by the 10 horns of the fourth beast of Daniel’s vision.

TThe number 12 is the perfect number signifying perfection of government. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule. The sun which “rules” the day, and the moon and stars which “govern” the night, do so by their passage through the 12 signs of the Zodiac which completes the great circle of the heavens of 360 (12 x 30) degrees or divisions, and thus govern the year.

There were 12 patriarchs from Seth to Noah and his family, and 12 from Shem to Jacob. The Temple of Solomon has the number 12 as the predominating factor. In Revelation, concerning the New Jerusalem, here is part of the description: o:p>

“And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written theron, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb” (Revelation 21:12,14).

In the Hebrew, the word seven is translated as “sheva.” It is from the root, savah which means                 to                 be full or satisfied, have enough of. For on the seventh day God rested from the work of Creation. It was full and complete, and good and perfect. Nothing could be added to it or taken from it without marring it. Hence the word “shavath” meaning to cease, desist, rest; and “shabbath” or “sabbath’—day of rest.

The Sabbath is universal and immemorial in its observance among all nations and in all times. There are 7 colors of the spectrum and in the rainbow; and in music, there are 7 notes of the scale. In Revelation, John talks of the 7 Spirits of God. There are 7 Feasts of the Lord. The last three Feasts are in the seventh month of Tishri in the Hebrew calendar.

Some Bible scholars believe there will be 6000 years of mankind before the Millennium Kingdom of Jesus comes, whereas He will rule and reign for 1000 years. Thus mankind will have been on the earth for a total of 7000 years, before God creates a new heaven and earth.

There are some multiples of 7 that ought to be mentioned; namely 42 (6 x 7), 70 (7 x 10), 77 (7 x 11), 50 (5 x 10), 490 (7 x 7 x 10), 7000 (7 x 10 x 10 x 10). The product number exhibits the significance of each in an intensified form. For example, 42 is the sum of 6 x 7. Six is Man’s number, and signifies rebellion; while 7 is God’s number. So 42 is the number associated with mankind’s rebellion against God.

70 (7 x 10) signifies perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and meaning.                 Both spirit and order are greatly emphasized; 70 descendants of Jacob built up the nation of Israel; 70 elders was the total for Israel’s great Tribunal, afterwards called the Sanhedrim; 70 disciples were sent out by Jesus to preach the gospel; 70 is especially the number associated                 with Jerusalem                 as the city kept its Sabbaths 70 years, while Judah was in Babylon.

Seventy “weeks” or ‘sevens’ (490 years) were determined upon the Jews and upon Jerusalem to complete its transgression, and bring in everlasting righteousness; according to Daniel 9:24-27. Daniel’s 70th week will finish the 70 “weeks” prophecy. It will be the last 7 years of the 490 (7 x 7 x10) years mentioned before Jesus returns at His Second Coming to the earth.

Let’ examine this prophecy a little closer, especially verse 27:

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): and in the midst of                 the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined                 shall be poured upon the desolate.”

This verse is referring to the last 7 years of mankind before the millennium kingdom begins. These 7 years will commence when the Antichrist confirms a covenant (peace treaty) with                 Israel                 This starts the time known as the Tribulation or otherwise known as Jacob’s trouble, or Daniel’s 70th week. In the middle of the 7 years (1260 days later), the Antichrist will stop the sacrifices in the newly built temple (the third one) of Israel ; and will have a statue or image of himself erected for all the people of earth to worship him as God.

This event is known as the Abomination of Desolation. From the middle of the Tribulation to the end of the Great Tribulation is also 1260 days in duration. The horrors of Daniel’s 70th week are described in Revelation 6-19.

The Tribulation will last for seven years. If the Rapture and the start of the Tribulation begin in 2016, then the end of the Great Tribulation will occur in 2023. This seems highly unlikely to me, as there doesn’t appear to be enough time for all of these events to occur.

On June 7, 2017, Israel will celebrate her 50 year (5 x 10) anniversary celebrating the re-taking of the Old City of Jerusalem during the famous 6 day war. On June 7, 1967, IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City toward the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, bringing Jerusalem’s holiest site under Jewish control for the first time in some 2000 years.

Here is a more realistic (although speculative) dateline for Daniel’s 70th week. The years 2018 – 2025 are very interesting in regard to Israel , Jerusalem , and multiples of seven. On May 14, 2018, Israel will celebrate her 70th (7 X 10) anniversary as a re-formed nation. Israel was resurrected from the ash heaps of history and was recognized as a nation on May 14, 1948. It’s ironic (or not) that the 70th week of Daniel could begin on Israel ’s 70th anniversary year. If the Tribulation starts in the fall of 2018, then the Great Tribulation would end 7 years later in the fall of 2025

Jesus was once asked by his disciples when would be the end of the age. He replied:

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: so likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:32-35).

When Jesus told his disciples “this generation shall not pass away,” he was saying that all the end times signs would be fulfilled within the lifetime of the people being born when the end time signs began. The beginning sign was when Israel became a nation again on May 14, 1948.

According to Psalm 90:10, a generation is 70 to 80 years in duration. Modern Israel will be 77                 (7 x 11) years old in 2025. Eleven is the number for disorder and disintegration, which aptly describes the chaos of the end times; yet multiplying it by 7 means God will have the final                 word and His will shall be accomplished.

Whatever the timing of Daniel’s 70th week and the Second Coming of Jesus, we know the end is drawing near. You can compare God’s Word to the daily headlines and realize the “birth pangs” are getting more frequent and severe. As believers in Jesus Christ, we await the Rapture of the Church; not the pre-tribulation wars or the Tribulation. However, as we see these signs getting close, it means the Rapture is even closer. For Paul said:

“Andtowait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from thewrathtocome” (1 Thessalonians 1:10).

June 11, 2016 Is the Christian church Raptured tomorrow June 12, Pentecost (Sivan 6, Shavuot)?

Will this be one of the last posts for this blog as the Rapture of the church may be tomorrow June 12, or Sivan 6, 5776 the year of Jubilee?

Well as Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich so beautifully explain in their video the feast of Pentecost is full of blessings and important things for God.

If it does happen that tomorrow the church of Christ will join the Lord Jesus Christ in heaven and you find yourself not taken and wondering what happened, I hope you can find the answer in the video and in this blog as well as on the links that are provided.

Something very important will follow the Rapture and it is the clearing the way for the forces of evil to succeed and bring the world to the reign of Satan’s son the Antichrist for a period of seven years.

People will still be able to save their souls by accepting Jesus Christ as their savior at this time as the world will be forced to choose between Satan and Jesus with no position in between to remain neutral.

March 29, 2016 A serious timeline study to the Rapture (April 9/10 of 2016) and the Tribulation (April 14/15 of 2016) Thanks, excellent work Judith

LETTER 194 March 29, 2016 A serious timeline study to the Rapture (April 9/10 of 2016) and the Tribulation (April 14/15 of 2016)

 

This post is about the timing of the start of the Tribulation and the date of the Rapture. The author Judith has done as excellent a job as can be humanly possible and even if not accurately exact by 100 % she has presented enough Biblical data that can be corroborated to be believable considering it involves a span of thousands of years and the correlation of several prophetic books in the Bible.

Judith’s study is based on the fact that the Bible is 100 % correct in the writings of the prophets as they are revealed by God, Jesus Christ, the King and Lord of Time and Creation.

The seven Feasts of the Lord are related to the crops that grew in Israel and therefore to the stations of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and therefore on our present solar calendar adjusted by leap years they fall more or less in line year after year. The axial tilt of the earth provides the seasons and the average year has 365.2425 days. The present orbital length and speed of the earth takes that amount of time to complete one revolution around the sun. At some point in the History of mankind the Lord changed the orbital dynamics of the earth and maybe of our solar system to change from 360 days per year and no axial tilt (speculation) to 365.3435 days at present.

In the book of Revelation we see again a 360 days per year count and I see it troublesome to equate the Feasts of the Lord to that time period and relate them to our calendar months and days. Will the change be abrupt on April 14/15 or gradual leading to that date in a few days duration? It will only be important to the Left Behind people as the Antichrist will try to change the dates and times.

Again thank you for sharing this in depth study into such an important issue.

Another coinciding timeline by Jan Herscu posted on comments:

There’s not much to go on at this point; but the following are a few thoughts concerning a possible RAPTURE on SATURDAY, NISAN 1, Apr 9…………1st day of the JEWISH YR (& MILLEN NEW YEAR’S DAY).

Note that on the Millen calendar below, NISAN 17 will be MARCH 17 & ARIES 17 and if you minus the future tilt loss 23 days back from Apr 9, 2016 (Nisan 1) you arrive back to MARCH 17. So the RAPTURE is on the future FIRSTFRUITS after all!….?

BIG QUESTION: HOW can NISAN 17 (commanded “beginning of days”/flood end) and NISAN 1 (Millen 1st Day of the Jewish year) be the SAME DAY????……because this APRIL 9 (NISAN 1) is ARIES 17, the Millennial NISAN 17 (see Millen calendar below). Also the SABBATH will be RE-instituted and NISAN 1 this year is SATURDAY…………very thought-provoking, indeed.

In addition, on Nisan 1, the “Temple is to be CLEANSED” (Ezek 45:18) and WE are the TEMPLE of the Holy Spirit & at the Rapture our sinful bodies will be fully redeemed/’cleansed’ (changed into eternal bodies). It’s a ‘stretch,’ but it may be applicable.

NISAN 1, 2016 (Sat, Apr 9) is 376 days past NISAN 10, the day the Messianic Kingdom was ‘supposed’ to begin (Palm Sunday) and we as believers have (& ‘would have’) responded positively to that great Palm Sunday HOSANNA day of decision & division; so the 280-day Church spiritual ‘gestation’ could start at NISAN 10, 2015……….still the decision day during the Age of Grace of which we are a part.

376 is 1 Jewish year (355 days….shana) plus the 21-day tilt that will minus and of course 355 is 280 days gestation +75 days (that will cancel out/balance the post-Return 75 days).

Very interesting as well is that APRIL 9, 2016 is ARIES 17 which will be NISAN 17 (& Mar 17) in the Millennium (see the Millen calendar below). The Isaiah 63 Temple Entrance 30 days past the Return (+the 2-3 days for earth to straighten) is also ARIES 17 (& the ACTUAL NISAN 17….Apr 8, 2023), the “beginning of days.”

Below is the probable Millennial calendar of 360 days/straight earth & 4 seasons (“seedtime & harvest” continue):

Nisan 1…….March 1…….Aries 1
Iyyar 1,,,,,,,,,April 1………Taurus 1
Sivan 1……..May 1……….Gemini 1

Tammuz 1…June 1……….Cancer 1
Av 1………….July 1………..Leo 1
Elul 1…………Aug 1………..Virgo 1

Tishrei 1…….Sept 1………..Libra 1
Chesvan 1….Oct 1…………Scorpio 1
Kislev 1………Nov 1………..Sagittarius 1

Tevet 1……….Dec 1………..Capricorn 1
Shevat 1……..Jan 1………..Aquarius 1
Adar 1…………Feb 1……….Pisces 1

Note that NISAN 1 is ARIES 1 (LAMB/8th sign)…so 1 an 8 (Jesus’ #’s). Also note that NISAN 17 will be MARCH 17 and ARIES 17.

When one subtracts 21 and 75 days back from the Rapture, the date of JAN 4, 2016 is evident……which is actually 11 days earlier, DEC 24, 2015, the original date of KISLEV 24…..relating to the KISLEV 24 promise of Haggai 2:7, “Desire of Nations shall come.” So when the 75 and the 21 days are canceled (which they WILL be), the Rapture will be ‘as having occurred’ on DEC 24, the original KISLEV 24…….Hag 2:7. In other words, NISAN 10, 2015 plus 280 days Church ‘gestation’ is JAN 4, 2016 which is really DEC 24, eleven days earlier due to the calendar change of the 1500’s.

The RETURN is PURIM……TUESDAY, ADAR 14, 2023….Mar 7….. (Pisces 17….then +30 days is ARIES 17), the same great historical rescue day of the past (Esther).

The RETURN minus the tilt loss is SHEVAT 24 (11,888….’judgment via Jesus’) and 30 days later when the 45-day judgment of the nations/Jesus + Remnant enter Temple begins is ADAR 24 (12,12,12….triple perfect gov’t). When Jesus and the Remnant ENTER Jerusalem on ADAR 24 (12,12,12), that Jewish calendar date certainly pertains to the start of the world’s PERFECT GOV’T since MESSIAH Himself enters the Capital of the World initiating the new/perfect Millennial gov’t.

The RETURN at Purim, March 7, 2023 is PISCES 17, thirty days later is ARIES 17 and trib end 45 days later is GEMINI 1…..the 10th sign (‘completion’) possibly signifying Israel & God (twins) walking together hand in hand in harmony. Gemini could also signify the human race ‘walking’ with God….spec…..Dan 12:12 Blessed is He who waits to the end of the 1335 days (from mid trib); so HAPPINESS & RELIEF define the END of the trib.

There are 2 possibilities for the 2300 days Temple Desecration (Dan 8:13-14):

a. TEVET 1, 2017 (Jan 1, 8th day Hanukkah/Temple Dedication) plus exactly 2300 days is trib end,
May 1, 2023 (trib end w/ the tilt loss). The 7 mths burying preceding TEVET 1, 2017 3rd Temple Worship is 7 perfect/Millen mths of 30 days each…….210 days….. beginning at JUNE 5, 2016, the 6-Day War anniv (Ezek 38 Victory?)……..approx 1.5 mths of world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel past the Rapture.

b. Oct 24, 2016 (Tishrei 22/Shemini Atzeret/Simha Torah) plus 2300 days (+3 mid-trib uncounted) is May 1, 2023, trib end (w/ the tilt minus). 7 mths burying preceding Oct 24, 2016 could be APRIL 11, 2016, the Ezek 38 Divine Victory in Israel (?), just 2 days world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel past the Rapture.

If a Passover lands on a Wednesday, then the SUNDAY (when the COUNT can begin) would be NISAN 18. Well, that is possibly the case at the ISA 63 Temple Entrance on SUNDAY, Apr 9, 2023, even though SATURDAY, Apr 8 is the actual NISAN 17…..the “beginning of days” according to flood end/Gen 8:4.

That would be the Temple Entrance date IF earth’s straightening takes 3 days instead of 2 days. The same goes for the date of Sat, APR 9, 2016 (possible Rapture) which is closer to Aries 18 (which will be the Millen Nisan 18….SUNDAY, when the count begins; but for intents & purposes, the Rapture is ARIES 17 because the earth’s 23.5-degree will be a ‘loss’ of 23.5 days back from Apr 9, 2016 (i.e. March 17, the future, Millen NISAN 17).

The RETURN in ADAR 2023 is BEFORE NISAN 2023; so the COUNT STAYS at NISAN 2022 which is 6 mths past ROSH/YOM/SUCCOTH 2021, still the LEGAL END of the 6,000 full yrs (120 Jub’s….Gen 6:3) when the 20 yrs are not counted. 2021 is the Hebrew yr 5782……5782″ orig Pyram ht w/ cap, 5782 degrees Kelvin (avg) of the SUN. Also 34 A.D. (Jesus on the cross, age 33.5) plus 1967 yrs is 2001 and 519 B.C. (Haggai) plus 2520 yrs is also 2001. 2001 is actually 6001………..start of 121st Jub/7th Millen.

W/ all considered, the 7-yr COUNT begins at YOM KIP 2014 (6 mths prior to NISAN 10, 2015) and ENDS at YOM KIP 2021….Lev 25:9….(which is 6 mths prior to NISAN 2022 where the count will STAY since the RETURN doesn’t reach NISAN 2023).

Also, the mid trib in Sept 2019 (Rosh is Oct 3) is STILL in the ROSH 2018 yr….the end of all the great FIG TREE PATTERNS beginning in 1898: 120, 100, 80, 70, 50……..from 1898, 1918, 1938, 1948, 1968 respectively.

SATURDAYS (Sabbath): Rapture & Abom of Desol at mid trib………..TUESDAYS (3rd Day): a.c. satanically ‘rises’ and the RETURN (3rd Day, Hos 6:2-3).

Even though the above is seemingly more ‘folly/spec/brainstorming,’ it just might happen as reviewed!
