The Ten Year Cycles of Change


The Ten Year Cycles of Change

By Pastor F. M. Riley
January 22, 2017

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,”  Isaiah 46:9-10.
Introduction
A brother in Christ reminded me that back in 2007, I wrote a Bible study on the meaings of the numbers seven and eight, pointing out in that study that seven is the Bible number signifying “completion or fulfillment,” and eight is the Bible number signifying “change or a new beginning.”  And sure enough in 2007 the American economy nearly collapsed due to the collapse of the housing market, and in 2008 many changes were made in the American economic system to guard against a complete collapse of the banking system and the economy.
The brother’s reminder caused me to begin looking into the changes that have occurred in these “last days,” especially in relation to the nation and people of Israel.  What I discovered was that there has been a cycle of changes every ten years since 1897, always occurring in the 7th and 8th years of every decade.  Amazing! This study is an examination of the changes which have occurred since 1897, and their relation to end-time Bible prophecy.  I leave it up to my readers to decide for themselves the Biblical value of what I am presenting in this study…….
A Home for the “Wandering Jew”
I will begin this study with the year, 1897, because that was the year the history of the Jewish people began to change for the better after nearly 2,000 years of turmoil, strife, persecution, and “wandering” over the face of the whole earth.
In 70 A.D. the armies of the Roman Empire invaded the nation of Judah, and burned Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple.  Thousands of the Jewish people fled from the Holy Land, and were scattered among the nations all over the world.  And for nearly 2,000 years they wandered from nation to nation, never finding a place of rest. Their situation through the centuries only grew worse and worse until finally in…….
1897…….It was in August of 1897 that Theodor Herzl convened the First Jewish Congress in Basle, Switzerland.  He invited prominent Jewish leaders from all over the world to come together for the stated purpose of “seeking out a national homeland for the Jewish people.”  When that First Jewish Congress ended, without any immediate results, Theodor Herzl uttered these prophetic words,  “The nation of Israel may not become a reality in my lifetime, but the ground work has been laid.  Israel will exist again as a nation among the nations of the world within fifty years.”   Theodor Herzel did not claim to be a prophet in any Biblical sense, yet in the month of August, 1947, fifty years to the day, the United Nations voted to end the British Mandate over the holy land, and separate the land, giving half of it to the Jews and half of it to the Arabs to establish their own states.  This action made it possible for Jewish leaders to re-establish the nation of Israel the following year in 1948.  What a change took place that year!  Was all of this just “coincidence,” or was the God of Israel working out His will for His covenanted people?
Ten years after 1897 would be the year of…….
1907…….For many centuries the nation of Japan was a closed nation in regards to the rest of the world, and the Japanese emperors wanted to keep it that way.  Foreigners were not welcome nor wanted in Japan.  But Japan was teeming with hordes of people, and the rest of the world wanted to “do business” with these people.  So…….
In 1907, the American government sent it’s naval vessels, what was then called The Great White Fleet, sailing into the harbor in Tokyo, Japan, to force the opening of the country of Japan to trade with the rest of the world.  The Japanese emperor at that time was faced with complying with America’s request or going to war, and he made the decision to open up the country of Japan to foreign trade.
So in 1908 the first trading vessels arrived in Japan with their merchandise, and the change  in Japan’s policy and economy began.  Japan’s modern history is well known by most of our readers.
1917…….For 400 years the Holy Land had been under the direct control of the Ottoman Turkish Empire.  But during the First World War in 1917 the Ottoman Turks were defeated and driven out of the Holy Land by the advancing Allied forces.  The city of Jerusalem was abandoned by the Turkish army to the extent that the commander of the Allied Forces, General Allenby, entered and took control of Jerusalem without a shot being fired.  Instead of giving their ancient homeland back to the Jewish people at that time, the whole land was placed under the British Mandate by what was then known as The League of Nations.
The next year, 1918, Jewish people. which for 400 years had been barred from even entering their ancient homeland by the Ottoman Turks, were allowed to begin immigrating back to the Holy Land.  Indeed a change had taken place!
1927…….Another ten years later most of the nations of Europe were still struggling to recover from the economic impact of the First World War.  It was during 1927 that the whole world economic system began to show signs of being in trouble.  But the signs were generally ignored, and nothing was done.  Then in 1928, the change came as the economy of nation after nation began to collapse.  The world economy was changing, so much, so fast, that in 1929 the entire world economy collapsed and the Great Depression came upon the whole world.
1937…….The Great Depression lasted throughout the 1930’s, until the beginning of the Second World War.  It was in 1937 that Germany, under the leadership of Adolph Hitler, began making moves against some of the nations around it.  This resulted in a change in 1938 when full scale war broke out in Europe.  It has been said that “wars” are fought for monetary reasons.  Certainly, with the need for mass production of weapons of war, thousands of people were put to work producing those weapons, and the world economy quickly improved.  America entered the war on December 7, 1941, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. and a change certainly occurred, when on December 8, 1941 then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt publically announced that America had declared war on Japan.
1947……We move forward another ten years, and once again an event of world significance occurred.  As already noted, it was in August of 1947 that the United Nations voted to end the British Mandate over the Holy Land and allow two separate states to be established, one for the Jewish people, and the other for the Arabs.  The Jews took advantage of the situation.  The Arabs did not!
The Jewish leaders in the world conferred together and wasted no time in agreeing to establish the nation of Israel, which they did on May 14, 1948.  A change had come in the Holy Land which effects the entire Middle East, and much of the world right to this present day.
The new nation of Israel was immeditely plunged into it’s war of independence.  The Arabs [Muslims], rather than establishing their own nation at that time, were determined to wipe out the nation of Israel before it could be born.  However, they were not successful.  Little Israel defeated the Arabs and won their war of independence.
1957…….Then in 1956 war broke out again in the Middle East over the use of the Suez Canal by Israeli ships.  This war was concluded in 1957, and in 1958 Israel’s ships began using the Suez Canal like the ships of all other nations.  The change had taken place.
1967…….Every reader surely knows what occurred in Israel in 1967.  The Six Day War!  Remember?
What may not have occurred to some readers is that this war happened exactly 70 years after Theodor Herzl convened the First Jewish Congress in 1897 to seek out a homeland for the Jewish people. “70” is the Bible number signifying “the restoration of Israel.”
The Six Day War began when most of the Arab nations around Israel attacked Israel on all fronts simultaneously.  Obviously these Arab nations had conspired together to defeat Israel.  Well, guess who got defeated?  Little David Israel, not really even prepared for such an unexpected attack, went up against the combined forces of the Arab Goliath, and defeated all of them in just six days.  Glory to God!  The negotiations following the cease fire continued right on into the following year, 1968, when there was a change in the border of Israel, and in the attitude of some of those Arab nations.  Since that time, first the nation of Egypt, and years later, the nation of Jordan, actually signed a “peace agreement” with the nation and people of Israel,  Glory to God!
1977…….It was during this year that the nation of Israel received a totally unexpected visitor. In November of 1977 the Presidential plane of Egypt approached the airport at Jerusalem requesting landing permission.  The Israeli authorities were shocked, but granted permission for the plane to land.  President Anwar Sadat of Egypt stepped out of the plane to announce to the shocked Israeli authorities that he had come to “make peace” with the nation of Israel.  Glory to God!
Negotiations began immediately, and went on into and through 1978, both nations making changes on the map of the Sinai Peninsula
between Israel and Egypt.  Finally, on March 26, 1979, Israel and Egypt signed a peace agreement, ending hostilities between the two nations.  Certainly a great change had taken place.
1987…….It is a sad truth that, despite all the missionary efforts of the “Christian” churches throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, most of the unbelieving world had never heard of the rapture, which was taught only by a small minority of fundamental Christian churches who take God’s  Word literally for what it actually says.  But the Lord God was about to do something about that lack of knowledge on the part of the lost world.
In 1987, a former NASA Engineer, Ed Whisenant, who was also a “born again” Christian believer, began to seriously study the prophecies of God’s Word.  As a result, he became convinced that mankind was living in “the last days,” and the vision of Habakkuk was being fulfilled, Habakkuk 2:1-3.  He became convinced that the return of Christ to resurrect and rapture His people to glory would occur at Rosh HaShanah, 1988, primarily because that year was Israel’s 40th year of existence as a modern nation.  He then wrote a small pamphlet entitled, “88 Reasons Why the Rapture will occur in 1988,” and had more than 50,000 copies of it printed up at his own expense.   His little paper pamphlet seemed very insignificant, but for some reason known only to the Lord, that little pamphlet went all over the world in just a matter of weeks.  And everywhere it went it created a sensation among those who read it.  Not only did unbelieving people all over the world become acquainted with what the Bible has to say about the rapture, but thousands of people turned from their unbelief and sin and sought the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Savior.
Folks, people all over the world who had never previously heard the Biblical truth about the rapture were talking about it in the streets of cities, towns, and villages, all over America, and also in other nations.  That little pamphlet, distributed all over the world in 1988, changed the knowledge of thousands of people about the Bible and our Christian beliefs.
Some people right to this day label Ed Whisenant as a “false teacher” and deceiver.  He was neither!  He was a dedicated Christian man with a genuine burden to see the lost saved before being left behind at the rapture.  And thousands were saved!  It was conservatively estimated that at least 150,000 people around the world came to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ during the Rapture 88 Movement in 1987-88.  I was not and am not aware that Satan is in the soul saving business!  It is the Holy Spirit of the Living God who saves souls.  I personally know of over 400 people who received Christ as their Savior during that movement.   It was the greatest spiritual movement of God I have personally ever seen, and I count it an honor to have been a part of it
Most certainly, Ed Whisenant was wrong on the “date” of Christ return, but is being wrong on a “date” the unforgiveable sin?  I hardly think so!  Is there any reader of this study who hasn’t been wrong on one thing or another you once believed about God’s Word?  I suggest all of the unforgiving critics give heed to the words of our Lord in John 8:7, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone….”
1997…….The next decade of change came in 1997-98.  It was during 1997 that Yasir Arafat campaigned for Israel to give up the west bank of the Holy Land in order that the Palestinians could establish a nation of their own.  Under pressure from Bill Clinton, then President of the United States, an agreement was reached between Israel and the PLO, and signed by Netanyahu and Yasir Arafat at the White House in Washington, D.C., on October 23, 1998.  So certainly a change occurred in 1998.
But what a waste of time!  To this day the Palestinians have not established a nation of their own.  Why?  Because their own leaders, like Arafat was,  are so proud and filled with their own self importance, and so jealous of one another, that they simply cannot agree on “who” will be the leader of their so-called “nation.”  Stupidity in action!
One other thing before leaving 1998.  Divide this year number by three and here is what you will find.   666 + 666 + 666 = 1998.  Does this mean or indicate something?  You decide!
2007…….Here is the next decade of years ending in 7 and 8.  I wrote out a Bible study, as previously mentioned, in 2007, about the significance of these two numbers, and plainly stated in that study that there would be great changes in 2008.  Was there ever!
In 2007 the entire housing market in America got into deep financial trouble, causing it to collapse in 2008.  The result  was that  hundreds of
foreclosures occurred, many banks went out of business, and many  people all over America lost their homes, creating a recession in America in 2009.   Remember?  It hasn’t been that long ago!  And some people are still hurting from the effects of it even today.
There is no question that the years of 2007-08 were years of great changes in America, even effecting some other nations in the world. But just hang on!  As some are fond of saying, “You haven’t seen anything yet!”
2017…….Wow!  This year has finally arrived, the year all true believers have been waiting for, whether some realize it or not.  I could write an entire Bible study just on this year alone, but I won’t!  Rather, with the Lord’s help, I will point out just a few things that should make our readers realize that this year is God’s appointed year to make the  change from this present Dispensation of Grace to the seven year judgment of the Tribulation period.   Are you ready?
[1]  2017 is exactly 120 years from 1897, when Theodor Herzel convened the First Jewish Congress, which set in motion the ultimate restoration of the Jewish people to a right relationship with their God.  Just as a 120 year warning was given preceding the judgment of the flood in “the days of Noah,” so the Lord God also graciously gave mankind living today a 120 year warning of impending judgment to come.
[2]   2017 is exactly 100 years from 1917 when the Ottoman Turks were driven from the Holy Land.  “100” is the Bible number signifying “calling; choosing; election.”
[3]     2017 is exactly 70 years from 1947 when the United Nations ended the British Mandate over the Holy Land, making it possible for the Jewish people to re-establish their nation the following year.  “70” is the Bible number signifying “the restoration of Israel.”
[4]     2017 is exactly 50 years from 1967 when the Six Day War was fought, restoring the city of Jerusalem and the entire west bank to the nation and people of Israel.  “50” is the Bible number signifying “the Jubilee; freedom; liberty; restoration.”  See Leviticus 25, the entire chapter.
[5]     2017 is the year 5777 on the Jewish calendar.  “777” is the Bible number signifying “the exceeding fullness of the wrath of God.”  Are our readers aware that the father of Noah was 777 years of age?  See Genesis 5:31-32.  Are our readers also aware that America’s new President, Donald Trump, on the day he was inaugurated, his age was 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days?  [777].
The numbers which identify this paticular  year of the century are quite unique.  There have been no year numbers like them since 1917, one hundred years ago.  1 + 7 = 8.  1917 was a year of drastic CHANGE.  Likewise 2017 will be a year of amazing CHANGE.
The numbers this year are 1 and 7, making up the number 17.   The number, “1,” in God’s Word signifies “unity; to unite; to become united or in unity.”  The number, “7,” in God’s Word is the Bible number signifying “to fulfill; to finish; to complete; to bring to completion.”  The two numbers together as a unit make up the number 17. The number, “17,” is the Bible number signifying “Victory; to acheive a victory; to become victorious.”
Therefore, during this particular year, we can expect unity to be accomplished between two parties who have previously been at odds with one another, divided, and out of fellowship.  The second number indicates that this unity will come even as another event is being fulfilled, finished, or completed. Then the number, 17, indicates that some will finally acheive a victory. Now what could possibly be indicated by these particular numbers for this year of 2017?  I’m so glad you asked!
I have previously pointed out that eight is the Bible number signifying “to change; to begin anew; a new start or beginning.”  Ordinarily changes always occur in the eighth year, following the year number ending in seven.  But this year is different in that the year numbers, 1 and 7, add up to 8.  This year, just like the year of 1917, will be an entire year of CHANGE, drastic change, amazing change, and every reader of this study will see and experience these changes for themselves.  Just grab your Bible and hang on.  In view of the inspired prophecies of the Bible, this year is going to be a wild ride…….
Conclusion
2017 is the year that a “remnant” of Israel and the Jewish people will turn back to the Lord God of Israel, and be restored to a right relationship and fellowship with Him.   Even as I write Jewish people are turning to and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, and the Tribulation hasn’t even started yet.  Glory to God!
2017 is the year when this present Dispensation of Grace will end with the return of Christ to resurrect and rapture His Church and all true New Covenant believers to glory, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.  The love and  longing for Christ, in the hearts and minds of all true believers, will finally burst into glorious reality as we see and hear the Savior calling for us to “Come up hither,” Revelaton 4:1.  Just as Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:49-57, when the rapture occurs, we who are true believers, will finally have “victory” over the flesh, the world, the devil, and death. Glory to God!  Praise the Lord!  Hallelujah!  Thank you Jesus!
2017 is the year when the terrible judgment of the seven year Tribulation will begin.  Many today who “profess” Christ with their mouths, but deny Him in their hearts and lives, will find themselves left behind when the rapture occurs, to face and go through this terrible time of judgment upon a Christ rejecting world.  How terrible to be so close to the kingdom of God, and yet miss it.  I remind our readers that “profession” is not “possession” of salvation and eternal life.  Read 2 Peter 1:10-11 and Romans 10:8-10 and act upon these Scriptures while there is still time to be saved.  Hurry!  The rapture could occur at any time now!
The desire of my heart is that every reader of this study will meet me
in glory when the Trumpet of God sounds, 1 Thessalonians 4:16.  Please don’t disappoint me!
May our precious Lord God add His blessings to this message.

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.

Denis Hart (11 Dec 2016)
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

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.

Sept 29, 2016 Is the Rare Black Moon for tomorrow an omen for the Apocalypse?

Tomorrow there will be a rare black moon in the sky and many are relating it to the Apocalypse.

It is noteworthy to point out that Sunday is Elul 29 the end of the Jubilee year 2015-2016 and that God sent warnings through the Dow dropping 7% in the years 2001 and 2008 followed by depressions.

Will Monday see a drop of 49% and 7,777 points?

Sept 17, 2016 The true face behind the mask worn by Hillary Clinton.

In the coming November election the true choice is starkly seen as remain an integral and independent nation by electing Trump or succumb independence and integrate into a one world government by voting for H Clinton.

The economy problem is moot as it will collapse before the election. Obama is the Antichrist and the new world government will be a reality as the Bible states in the book of Revelation. The only question is what role will the USA play in this new world order and how crippled and totalitarian will the country be?

Hillary Is Secretive, Abusive Because of Psychic Scarring

TDB's picture

She wasn’t always like this … No, Hillary Rodham Clinton was once willing to share her deepest thoughts and feelings, as she did in a 1993 speech on “the politics of meaning,” delivered as her father lay dying, in which she said the country was suffering “a sleeping sickness of the soul,” and urged her fellow citizens “to remold society by redefining what it means to be a human being in the 20th century.”   – Politico

This article attempts to convince us that Hillary is secretive and abusive because she has been psychically injured during her long career of public service.

But there are so many instances in Hillary’s past of ways she has deliberately injured others that it is difficult to believe such acts are mostly the result of ongoing injured feelings.

On its surface, therefore, this Politico article is jaw-dropping in terms of its thesis and argumentation. But there is probably another reason for its dissemination as well: More on that below.

From a surface standpoint, we are aware that she has been more than ordinarily abusive to others working with her or reporting to her. It has even been suggested that Vince Foster killed himself because of her relentless denigration when he worked at the White House as Special Council.

But another reason has recently circulated once more for Foster’s supposed suicide: He was devastated by the Waco massacre, which Hillary supposedly had a hand in triggering.  See here.

It is hard to believe that Hillary pushed for the cold-blooded murder of 80 individuals including women and children because of personal psychic scarring. Supposedly, Waco was impeding the momentum of the health-care overhaul she wanted to pursue.

Perhaps Hillary was so mean in the White House because her husband was having numerous outside affairs. But the way she chose to handle these affairs was not necessarily to confront Bill but to intimidate the women by means fair and foul to ensure they did not talk.

Right from the beginning of her White House tenure, Hillary was malicious and manipulative. She fired the personnel of the White House Travel office and tried to jail individuals with phony charges of corruption. She did this because she wanted her own people in charge of the office, which generated lucrative fees.

When Hillary and Bill left the White House they stole a lot of furniture and silverware, and eventually had to give some of it back.

These are just some of the issues surrounding Hillary that seem to indicate that her behavior is not the result of psychic scarring but something more profound and even wicked.

The Politico article is firm in its thesis and analysis however:

[As a result of her speech] she was roundly, relentlessly ridiculed, most infamously in a New York Times cover story, titled “Saint Hillary,” by the late Michael Kelly, in which she expounded at even greater length on her personal passions, unaware that Kelly would use them to mock her for high-minded earnestness.

In those interviews, the public Hillary Clinton was altogether different than the one the public sees today: less guarded, more candid, far more eager to embrace the “larger message” she’s so often criticized for lacking now.

When Kelly suggested to her that she was “trying to come up with a sort of unified-field theory of life,” she responded in what he described as “excited” tones: “That’s right, that’s exactly right!”

“She is, it develops in the course of two long conversations,” Kelly wrote then, “looking for a way of looking at the world that would marry conservatism and liberalism, and capitalism and statism, that would tie together practically everything: the way we are, the way we were …

This is a good explanation of Hillary’s fundamental approach to politics and life: She wants to marry “capitalism and statism” together.

In other words, the animating drive of her adult life was to create lasting fascism and impose it on America.

She is not so far from doing so.

Presumably, in the process of realizing her dreams for the larger society, Hillary was able to justify actions most would find reprehensible.

That’s one way to look at it. Another is simply that she is a venal and manipulative person who has a sociopath’s gift for doing as she chooses without concern for the results.

In any event, it is very difficult to marry her many malicious actions with psychic scarring based on people’s unkindness.

There are many in this world exposed to worse who do not act the way Hillary behaves, and thus it is very hard to take this Politico story seriously.

But as we suggested at the beginning of this article, there may be other reasons to publish this Politico perspective.

First, we have to realize that as ridiculous as this Politico article seems it is by no means alone. There are pro-Hillary articles published on a regular basis that are nearly as illogical and naïve-seeming as this one.

It is fairly clear to anyone who pays attention that the Clintons are part of a larger corrupt system that is dedicated to removing or diminishing nation-states in order to create stronger global governance.

Part of this system involves putting into place destructive mechanisms that undermine the military, politics and even the media.

It is this last point that is important to note here. Hillary’s political campaign has forced the worst kind of biased and inaccurate reporting out into the open.

The most “prestigious” publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times as well as the country pre-eminent thought magazines such as The New Yorker and The Atlantic regularly issue article that almost anyone capable of reading can debunk.

We would argue this is not by accident. The other day (here) we made the point that it seemed Hillary’s elite backers were desperate to ensure her election. We hypothesized that her ability to lead the US into war was seen as most valuable.

It is fairly clear that the world’s economic system is worsening and that central banking actions are undermining whatever shards of solvency are still apparent. Consider this thesis as viable and then accept that it is being buttressed by reports such as the one just issued by Gallup (here) showing that Americans hold mass media in lower respect than ever.

We would argue that these two results are not unrelated. American mainstream media is being torn down on purpose along with the political process to further raze democracy and weaken the West’s functionality generally.

Conclusion: The world and specifically the West are being prepared for a major change that will feature a diminution of local authority in favor of global governance. Within this context, articles even as terrible as this one in Politico are no accident. They are designed to polarize the population and increase mistrust of mass media reporting. It is fortunate, therefore, that we have the opposition of ‘Net news.

Aug 7, 2016 Will the DOW drop 49% and 7,777 points on October 3, 2016 (Rosh Hashanah)?

On 2015, Elul 29 fell on Sept 13 Sunday closing the Shemitah year.

This year Elul 29 falls also on Sunday October 2 closing the Jubilee year.

Will the DOW drop from here to Friday Sept 30 to close the day with 15,871.44 that is the required number to permit the Dow to drop 49% and 7,777 points on October 3, Monday the day of Rosh Hashanah. The jubilee year closed on Sunday October 2.

This drop would have the numerical authentication of God orchestrating the collapse just as He did on Elul 29  of 2001 and 2008.

Please refer to the link for the article I wrote last year.
