Jan 28, 2015 Israel will seek refuge in Jordan to escape the Antichrist

leave a comment »

this article by Jack Kelly explains in an excellent way the destinies of Israel and Jordan in the coming short years.

As we approach the coming seven years Tribulation we find Israel at odds with many nations in the world and it is well to know what the prophetic Word of God has to say about it.

The Tribulation is a time of Judgment for “ALL” the Nations of the world who have rejected the God of Israel and Jesus Christ the Messiah. At the end He will return to earth and establish His Kingdom on earth and His throne in Jerusalem. Israel will be restored to its promised glory as head of the Nations.

The article by Kelly covers one of those nations role as the neighbor of Israel at the time the vortex of the storm is centered there.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon

By Jack Kelley

Here’s a brief summary of the history and prophecy concerning these three neighbors of Israel who always seem to wind upon the wrong side of things where the Lord is concerned.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon in History

The biblical people called by the names above once occupied the territory we know today as Jordan, the nation due east of Israel. Not many people realize that Edom, Moab, and Ammon were given their homelands by God himself (Deut. 2:5, 9, 19) just like Israel was. And just like Israel was told to clear the land west of the Jordan River of the people who lived there at the time, Edom, Moab, and Ammon were told to perform the same service for God on the Eastern side (Deut. 2:10-12, 20-22).

One of the people groups they eliminated was the Rephaites (Rephaim), an ancient group of loosely related tribes of giants who are often thought to be descendants of the Nephilim, mentioned in Genesis 6. In fact, when the 12 Israelite spies first went into the promised land they reported seeing Nephilim there (Numbers 13:33). The Rephaites were a mysterious people about whom the Bible says very little, except that Israel, Edom, Moab, and Ammon were all given the task of destroying them and taking their land.

Moab and Ammon were named after the children of the incestuous unions of Lot and his two daughters. Lot was an unknowing participant, having been made intoxicated by his daughters, who saw becoming pregnant by their father as their only way to produce any offspring. Every other man they knew had perished in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:30-38).

The Lord gave the Moabites and the Ammonites land east of Israel extending from the Jabbok River in the north to the Zered River in the south, with undefined eastern boundaries.

Edom was the name given to the descendants of Jacob’s twin brother Esau. Having patched things up after their split over the way Jacob had tricked Isaac into giving him Esau’s blessing (Genesis 27), they returned to the area near Kiriath Arba (Hebron) where Isaac and Rebekah lived. Upon Isaac’s death the two brothers buried him and divided up their inheritance.

Realizing they needed separate pasturelands because their herds would now be too large for them to remain together, Esau took his Canaanite wives and all he owned and moved some distance away into the hill country of Seir, east and south of the Dead Sea, just south of Moab and Israel. Later, the Lord told Moses He had given this land to Esau and his descendants. (Deut 2:5).

The relationship between Israel and its three neighbors to the East was never good, and they fought with each other frequently. Sometimes God used Israel to discipline them and at other times He used them to discipline Israel. Under King David, Israel conquered and subjugated all of them for a time (2 Samuel 8:1-14).

Four hundred years later, the Babylonians came as the Lord’s instrument of judgment against Israel. Edom, Moab, and Ammon all cheered for Babylon and made plans to carve up the Promised Land for themselves after the Babylonians carried Israel into captivity. This displeased the Lord and He had the Babylonians destroy them as well. Moab and Ammon ceased to exist as nations at that time (Ezekiel 25:10).

Edom was first welcomed as an ally in the Babylonian conquest of Judah, but Babylon soon turned on them and conquered them, too (Obadiah 1:7-9). God repaid Edom’s treachery against Israel (Obadiah 1:10-14) with Babylon’s treachery against Edom. The Edomites were destroyed and their lands were taken over by the Nabateans, a desert tribe from the south.

So Edom, Moab, and Ammon ceased to be nations at about the same time that Judah was carried off to Babylon. After 70 years of captivity, Israel was restored. In Jeremiah 48:47 the Lord promised one day to restore the fortunes of Moab as well, and in Jeremiah 49:6 He made the same promise to Ammon. But He made no such promise to Edom.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon in the End Times

Edom, Moab, and Ammon are listed in Psalm 83:6-7 among the participants in a scheme to destroy Israel and erase its name from people’s memories. By most accounts this battle has never taken place and will most likely be one of the next events on the prophetic horizon. The psalmist’s prayer is that the Lord will cause them to perish in disgrace.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon are also mentioned in a prophecy from Daniel 11:41. Speaking of the Antichrist and his end times conquest of the Middle East, Daniel said, “He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand.”

The Beautiful Land is Israel, and the timing of this prophecy is during the Great Tribulation. The fact that Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from the Antichrist’s hand indicates he will have intended to conquer them but will be unable to do so. Based on existing conditions in the world today we would interpret this prophecy as pertaining to Jordan. But this could all change with the Battle of Psalm 83 when Edom, Moab, and Ammon could come under Israel’s control again. Is that what will prevent the Antichrist from conquering them, or is there more to it?

Rev. 12:13-17 tells us that after Satan is confined to Earth he will go after “the woman”, symbolic of Israel. But the woman will be given the wings of a great eagle, enabling her to flee into the desert to a place prepared for her, where she will be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, which is 3 ½ years, the duration of the Great Tribulation. This agrees with Matt. 24:15-21 where the Lord warned the believing remnant of Israel to flee to the mountains to escape the Great Tribulation. The closest mountains to Jerusalem are in Moab and Edom.

And concerning the time of the 2nd Coming, Isaiah wrote;

Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength?

“It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.”

Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?

“I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing. It was for me the day of vengeance; the year for me to redeem had come.

I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm achieved salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me. I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground” (Isaiah 63:1-6).

Bozrah was the capitol of Edom. The name can mean either sheepfold or fortress. It’s often associated with the abandoned city of Petra, which is only twenty miles away.

Combining these prophecies we have the Antichrist, now indwelt by Satan, determined to rid the world of God’s people once and for all. Heeding the Lord’s 2,000 year old warning, the believing remnant will flee to the mountains of Edom where the city of Petra has been standing empty for centuries, as if in preparation.

The phrase “wings of a great eagle” in Rev. 12:14 is reminiscent of Exodus 19:4 where the Lord used the same phrase to describe the way he delivered Israel from the Egyptians. This implies the same kind of supernatural assistance, such as when Satan spews out a river of water to sweep the woman away. But the Lord will open the earth to swallow the river and save the woman. This will enrage Satan, but he will leave the woman and go after other followers of Jesus (Rev. 12:15-17).

This helps us understand how Edom, Moab, and Ammon could escape the clutches of the Anti-christ. The Lord has chosen Petra as the city of refuge where He will protect His people throughout the Great Tribulation. In doing so, He will make sure the whole area stays out of the hands of His enemy. It also explains why, when He returns, He will first go to Edom to clear the way for His people to return to Jerusalem (Isaiah 63:1-6).

Edom, Moab, and Ammon in the Millennium

On several of our visits to Israel we crossed into Jordan near Jericho. We used its capital city, Amman, as our headquarters, from which we visited other parts of the country. Amman is a modern city of 4 million inhabitants that we always found to be very hospitable.

Our various destinations always included the ruins of Jerash (Gerasa). It was a prominent city of the Decapolis in the Lord’s time (Matt. 4:25), and is located about 30 miles north of Amman. Traveling through the ancient land of the Ammonites, we found it to be quite beautiful in places, with green valleys and numerous villages.

We always spent a day in Petra, as well. We traveled south from Amman down the eastern side of the Dead Sea, through ancient Moab and into Edom. As we journeyed south we soon found ourselves in desert country, but it’s still far from being a wasteland. The highway was wide and well maintained, with light to moderate traffic in both directions, and we passed through several villages with pleasant rest stops before reaching Petra.

But all that will change in the day God brings His vengeance on the lands east of the Jordan river and south of Israel. When He’s finished with them, Moab and Ammon will resemble Sodom and Gomorrah.

“I have heard the insults of Moab and the taunts of the Ammonites, who insulted my people and made threats against their land. Therefore, as surely as I live,” declares the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel,“surely Moab will become like Sodom, the Ammonites like Gomorrah—a place of weeds and salt pits, a wasteland forever. The remnant of my people will plunder them; the survivors of my nation will inherit their land” (Zeph. 2:8-9).

Here’s another hint that Moab and Ammon will yet fall back under the control of Israel.

And Edom will receive an extra portion of the Lord’s wrath.

“My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens; see, it descends in judgment on Edom, the people I have totally destroyed. The sword of the Lord is bathed in blood, it is covered with fat—the blood of lambs and goats, fat from the kidneys of rams. For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. And the wild oxen will fall with them, the bull calves and the great bulls. Their land will be drenched with blood, and the dust will be soaked with fat.

For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion’s cause. Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch, her dust into burning sulfur; her land will become blazing pitch! It will not be quenched night or day; its smoke will rise forever. From generation to generation it will lie desolate; no one will ever pass through it again. The desert owl and screech owl will possess it; the great owl and the raven will nest there. God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation” (Isaiah 34:5-11).

Isaiah’s descriptive language calls up images of hell itself and has led more than one commentator to suggest Edom as the location of the Lake of Fire, where the unbelievers of all ages will spend eternity in torment.

From the above we can see that it won’t be out of any consideration for Edom, Moab, and Ammon that God will protect them from the Antichrist, but out of a need to preserve the believing remnant of Israel. After the 2nd Coming the homelands of these three antagonists of Israel will become desolate wastelands forever.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon stand as witnesses to the terrible end that comes to countries who take their stand against God and His people. It truly is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God (Hebrews 10:31).

Jan 15, 2015 Timeline for the Rapture and the Tribulation at the end of the Shemitah year 2014-2015

This article by Sherry Vance takes us to the time of the Tribulation and the year of Jubilee in a well thought and scriptural supported manner.

This year seems to be the culmination of several prophetic signs and a Shemitah year to cap it all.

Thank you Sherry Vance

Reply to “blgloden”, “Greg W” and “Jan J”  (4 Jan 2015)


I’m addressing this to all three correspondents above because I believe my response will be relevant to all three of you, including anyone else who is interested in the timeline. 

First of all, thank you to blgloden for pointing out my error of omitting 1880-1881.  You are the ONLY ONE who caught this, or at least cared enough to point it out.  The reason I am indebted to you is because your keen observation caused me to go back and re-evaluate the timeline.  I made a blind error but God meant it for good, for He used it to CONFIRM the timeline once again.  Please allow me to explain.
To begin to create a timeline based on the Sabbath and Jubilee cycles I started with the History of Israel, with the conventional knowledge that in 1917 General Allenby captured Jerusalem from the Turks and fifty years later in 1967, Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six Day War.  What has been assumed (and which I had always assumed as well) was they were Jubilee Years.
After blgloden pointed out my omitted-year blunder, I went back to “fix” the problem…and couldn’t!
I had to re-evaluate the timeline because I knew that in accordance with what most people believed, counting every 50th year was a Jubliee…..and try as I might….when the missing year 1880-1881 was inserted, it, of course, threw off the chronological years for the Sabbaths & Jubilees.  NOW WHAT?… (she thought as she banged her head against the wall…).
Enter the book which RandyW introduced last week > The Equation.  I had read Malcolm Isted’s “The Equation” 2 years ago.  I had forgotten how he explained the how, what & why of the Jubilee cycles.
The FACT is: the Jubilee pattern adheres to a strict rigid timeframe tied to the Sabbatical cycles outlined in Leviticus 25; and that is the “pattern of 7×7=49 yrs. of Sabbaths + 1 yr = 50 years = the Jubilee year, “when Israel shall consecrate the 50th year and proclaim liberty throughout all the Land to all its inhabitants.  It shall be a Jubilee for you…..”.(vs. 1-10).  Therefore, the REQUIREMENT OF A JUBILEE IS ANCHORED TO THE SABBATHS, BUT IT IS TIED INEXPLICABLY TO ISRAEL BEING IN THE LAND  > “And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, “Speak to the children of ISrael, and say to them: “When you come into the land which I give to you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.” (Lev. 25:1-2)
My mistake was in starting the timeline going back to ‘1867 & 1917′ showing those years to be jubilee years’ when they were NOT because Israel was not officially and legally yet back in the Land!!!….and the Jubilee Cycle could NOT be observed….and indeed it was not, for the reason: how, or who, could the land revert back to while they were not officially or legally in it?   Realizing this, I went back and looked at history leading to the State of Israel, which Malcolm Isted summarizes so simply in The Equation.  The FACT is, the promise of a national homeland made to the Jews in 1917, only became legally effective in 1923 when the British Mandate for Palestine (including TransJordan) took effect from 1923-1948.  Of course between 1923-1948 there were numerous laws, resolutions, and treaty obligations to be taken into account, until finally in November 1947 the United Nations took a vote with a 2/3 majority to partition western Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state.  It was called UN Resolution 181 and though the final division greatly limited the size of what had been promised to them, the Jews accepted it out of sheer desperation for a homeland.  (Is it any wonder why God was/is not only angry at the nations who treated His people this way, but they DIVIDED HIS LAND....”THE LAND SHALL NOT BE SOLD PERMANENTLY, FOR THE LAND IS MINE; FOR YOU ARE STRANGERS AND SOJOURNERS WITH ME.”) Lev. 25:23
So to make a long story short(er), the Jubilee cycle is measured by cycles in the land of Israel and it must have terminated when the Jews were put OUT of the land in 70 AD…..and alternatively, the Jubilee cycle began again in 1923 when they were legally put back IN the land (although it still took 25 years to be officially fulfilled in May 1948 (even though ‘aliyas’ (immigration) had been going on via the Zionist activities since the mid-1800’s. 
So with all that in mind, let’s start the timeline of the Sabbatical & Jubilee cycles in modern day Israel when they were officially & legally granted the, albeit limited, land area that God had covenanted to them…..(which is also why God has a beef with the nations.)

                                   TIMELINE

1917-1918   
* Gen. Allenby captures Jerusalem from Turks on Hannukah, Dec. 9, 1917; however……….. 
* Israel was not yet officially, nor legally, back in the Land.  The Jubilee cycles had been suspended when they were put out of the land in 70 AD and the Jubilee cycle would not resume until they were officially & legally back in the land.  That fulfillment would become legally effective when the Treaty of Sevres was remodeled by the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland, on July 24, 1923, exactly a year after the Palestine Mandate came into being.
                                                
1918-1919
1919-1920
1920-1921
1921-1922
1922-1923
Tishrei 1, Sept. 11, 1923 BEGAN THE MODERN-DAY JUBILEE CYCLE  
* On July 24, 1923, the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland signifcantly remodeled the terms of the Treaty of Sevres (by which the Ottoman Empire was split up) and finally, after numerous disputed, conflicting, shifting boundaries, political ambitions & negotiations among the nations, all the legal processes had been completed, paving the way for the creation of the Jewish state and re-birth of the modern day Jubilee cycle, in which God states: “When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.”  Thus, the “decree went out” and on the Hebrew calendar, Tishrei 1, September 11, 1923, the Jubilee cycle was officially & legally re-established.   (The sabbaths could now be counted for the purpose of re-establishing the Jubilee cycle.)

Egypt, the Zionist leadership was to take them out of Europe.  So, Israel was “officially pregnant” from 1923, however, the BIRTH of the Jewish Nation (for the 2nd time) was now AT HAND!

* Oslo Accords (Land for Peace) signed on Sept. 13, 1993 and presented to the world ON  Rosh HaShanah Sept. 16, 1993.
* Oslo was a “Rehearsal” for the 70th Week because the 70th Week will also

begin with a Land Agreement - confirming the (Abrahamic) Covenant.
* Oslo was signed in a Sabbath year belonging to the previous Sabbatical cycle, therefore it was outside (before) the beginning of the new Sabbatical cycle which would begin the Three Weeks of Jacob’s Trouble.  It was also outside (before) the ending of the 6th Day/6,000 yrs in the year 2000/Hebrew year of 5760.   

* Therefore, Oslo is the lead-in rehearsal to The THREE WEEKS of JACOB’S TROUBLE (three sets  of 7 years (777) totaling 21 years following the 3 chapters of Jacob’s Trouble in Genesis 29, 30, 31.) 
* Analogy >  * Jacob desired Rachel and contracted with Laban to labor for 7 years for her hand in marriage.  But Laban deceived Jacob and lied to him, for he had no intention of giving his younger daughter before the eldest.
* Israel desired Peace and contracted negotiations with Arafat & the PLO for the next 7 years; but Yassar Arafat had no intention of agreeing to peace with Israel and had, in fact, even refused to remove from the PLO Charter the written intention to annihilate Israel.  
1993-2000 would 7 years of a “lied-to-agreement.”

* 6th day ends, 7th day begins.  The 7th Day is the ‘Last Day’ / the Sabbath Day / the Lord’s Day.   It is also the same as Hosea’s 3rd Day…and “in the third day He will raise us up.”
* Israeli Rabbis announce: “We have entered The Time of Jacob’s Trouble (which Israel/”Jacob will be saved out of.”)                               
* The Intifada begins – On September 28, 2000, just after dawn, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon enters the Temple Mount.  He states “I came here with a message of peace.”
2001-2002 – 1st year in new cycle
* FIRST WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE
* The Intifada had begun on September 28, 2000, just after dawn, when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon entered the Temple Mount.  He stated “I came here with a message of peace.” 
* Analogy: Jacob had come to Laban in peace, and agreed to labor for 7 years for the desire of his heart (Rachel/Peace) but it had been a lied-to-agreement.  But so strong was his love for Rachel/Peace that even after being deceived, he agrees to labor ANOTHER 7 YEARS in order to acquire the desire of his heart, but is instead, subjected to much ‘trouble.’ 
* The Arab Intifada (uprising) continues amid false accusations of atrocities, massacres, and instigation upon Israel.  For the remainder of this Sabbatical cycle, Israel will experience terror, suicide bombers, bus bombings, etc. at the hands of Esau’s descendants, the Arab Palestinians. 
2002-2003 – 2 yr
2003-2004 – 3 yr
2004-2005 – 4 yr
2005-2006 – 5 yr
2006-2007 – 6 yr
2007-2008 - 7 yr - Sabbath yr   (5th week of yrs) 
* Sabbath year begins quieter than the previous 6 yrs have been primarily due to Israel’s completion of the “Fence” (and in some areas “Wall” separating Arab & Jewish settlements) which prevented suicide bombers and terrorists from crossing into Jewish settlements.)
* Analogy: Jacob had now completed 14 years of laboring in Laban’s household, working to marry
Laban’s daughters (Leah & Rachel).  He was now no longer “under contract” and during this “quiet” year, Rachel conceived and bare Joseph, after which Jacob considered going “home” to his own country.  But Laban asks him to “tarry” and he will pay whatever wages Jacob wants.  Jacob considers and accepts, turning his attention to his “economy“, building wealth and an inheritance from among Laban’s herds & flocks. 
2008-2009 – 1st year in new cycle
* SECOND WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE
At the very start of the new Sabbatical cycle & 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, global attention focuses on the economy (just as the analogy shows Jacob had turned his attention to his economy) because on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 29, 2008 the Stock Exchange crashes at 777.68 (Three sevens plus .68 for the Hebrew year 5768.)  Personally, I consider this a “heads-up” warning from God that on Rosh Hashanah 5768  we had entered the exact middle seven of the three sevens that herald the LAST DAYS….or > 7x7x7=21 years) = 1994 + 21 = 2015.  
* Barack Hussein Obama elected President, giving him a seat of power and possibly setting the stage for the coming antichrist.  Obama’s Muslim identification with Islam and his obvious actions designed to destroy the Constitution of the United States may become the cause of the decline and destruction of America, and possibly one of the reasons the U.S. is not seen as a world power in the last days.

Analogy:  Comparing the analogy in Genesis with this last Sabbatical year of the 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, we see that Jacob has finally left Laban and he is on his way home.  We know that God is watching over him because the angels of God met him as he left Laban behind and went on his way.  (The archangel Michael is the chief angel over Israel and his warrior angels are accompanying Jacob and his family on their way home.  Michael guards God’s chosen people.  This is necessary for Jacob is about to tremble and wrestle with God….and “he will prevail.” 
* Night begins to fall and Jacob makes the best preparations (the IDF) that he can to provide for his ‘family’s safety against Esau, but he is wary and afraid.  He goes to bed but gets back up and divides his family into 2 separate camps so as to preserve at least a remnant if they are attacked.  (This can be seen even in the recent Gaza War – Jacob’s strategy is to move his people back from the borders and create a buffer zone for their safety.)  Satisfied as much as he can be, Jacob was left alone.
* Alone indeed, even now, Jacob is experiencing an expotential rise in worldwide anti-semitism…..again.  Jacob is condemned for defending himself.  Jacob has no true allies anymore.  He is alone and the night is upon him.
* I believe by this coming Spring, Jacob will be faced with fulfilling the Battles of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17, where he will finally subdue Esau’s decendants (the Palestinians) and Damascus will become a heap of ruins. These enemies are never mentioned again in context with the coming Battle of Ezekiel 38/ Gog & Magog (the hooks in the jaws, bringing Russia & Iran down upon Israel to plunder and take a spoil.)   
* But until the Battle of Ezekiel 38, Jacob is still “secular”, meaning, as a Nation, they have never truly acknowledged and honored the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob.  But after the Battle of Ezekiel, Israel will just have witnessed & experienced God’s deliverance from their certain annilhilation.  And so Jacob wrestles (spiritually) with the Angel of the Lord – he doesn’t let go – he wrestles to understand  this supernatural intervention & deliverance when he had been left alone in the world, and Jacob finally recognizes the God of his fathers who delivered him and he asks the ‘man’ to bless him before he will release Him.  Jacob is renamed Israel because he has prevailedand Israel once again becomes God’s people and God says He will again be their God.

* NOW Israel is prepared to enter his last Week as per Daniel 9:24 – “Seventy Weeks are determined upon thy people and upon the holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to annoint the most Holy.”  And so the 70th Week begins 

    

2015-2016 - 1st year in new cycle – BEGINNING OF THE 70TH WEEK 
* I believe that on the eve of Rosh HaShanah, September 13, 2015, during the darkness of the new moon, the full number of Gentiles will have come in and the Church Age of Grace will end, and the Resurrection of the dead-in-Christ and the Rapture of the living believers will take place, fulfilling the first Fall Feast, the Feast of Trumpets….and it will happen at the very ‘Last Trump’ – the longest and loudest of the 100 that are sounded at that time.
* Regardless of what the proponents of the heretical “Replacement Theology” teach, God is not finished with Israel.  He will bring them to Redemption in their last/70th Week.  But He will first bring the Church Age of Grace to a close at the Resurrection & Rapture of all Believers and then turn His full attention to Israel, His Glory!  And He will cleanse the earth of the spilled blood of the innocent by requiring the blood of the guilty in the 7th Seal blood judgments of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Bowls.  THIS is what the 70th Week is for!….”to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Dan. 9:24)   
The Lord is now preparing to set the captives free! 
* THIRD WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE BEGINS
* THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL BEGINS
* ISRAEL AND THE WORLD NOW ENTER THE DAY OF THE LORD!  
It may be helpful to think of these next 7 years 2015-2022 as one complete “day”, or evening & morning: the night Jacob wrestles with the Lord, and in the morning he lifts up his eyes as he (ISRAEL) recognizes The Messiah and is redeemed. But much will take place during that “evening & morning” constituting “The DAY of the Lord before Israel’s reconciliation & redemption takes place. 
1st  year of the 70th Week

*  Israel has once again turned back to God in recognition of His deliverance and now
calls for their Temple to be built so they can return (nationally) to their Old Testament Covenant Worship of God: offering sacrifices once again.  They do not yet know their Messiah but when He returns “the second time” they will finally understand when they SEE Him.
* The as-yet-unrevealed-antichrist confirms the covenant with Israel and “the many” (nations) paving the way for the building of the temple.
*  BLOOD MOON TETRADS
    *  Solar eclipse on……………………March 20, 2015

                                         The Great Tribulation
                (time, times, & half a time – 3 1/2 years – 42 months – 1260 days)
                             “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive.”
                                                Matthew 24:22
Feb. 13, 2019 is 1335 days from ‘the last great day’ > the 8th day of Tabernacles, Oct. 18, 2022 when the Kingdom shall begin. Daniel 12:12 states: “Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.”  This is the promise to those who will have to “endure” the Great Tribulation which is about to begin.
* 70th Week began Sept. 14, 2015 + 1260 days = Feb. 25, 2019 ends 1st half of 70th  Week. 
* The Great Tribulation (2nd half of the 70th Week) begins  

* “there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour and then the 7th Seal (God’s Wrath) is opened
* Before the 7 Trumpet judgments sound, there is a ceremony at the Altar of Incense: Prayers of the saints mixed with incense is flung to earth.  This is symbolic of the ceremony on Yom Kippur. 
* March 25,2019 > (1290 day) - Daily Sacrifice Taken Away & Abomination is set up 
2019-2020 - 5th year of the 70th Week
* The Two Witnesses (having begun their 1260 ministry likely on Nisan 10 – the 1st day of the inspection of the lambs/April 18, 2016), their ministry ENDS on the eve of Feast of Trumpets,       Sept. 30, 2019. 
* Two Witnesses killed (Rev. 11:7-12) lie dead for 3 1/2 days and are resurrected on Oct. 4, 2019

                  The Day of Atonement / Yom Kippur
* The Feast of Tabernacles is from October 10-16, with the 8th great day on October 17, 2022.  
    The Third and Last Fall Feast will be fulfilled and the Millennial Kingdom will commence! 
*********************************************************************
To Jan:  You sent me a link to the Bible Codes and asked what I thought about them.  There are pros and cons to thinking about THE DAY OF THE LORD being ONE YEAR.  But I do not know how the PROCESS of accomplishing all that must be accomplished could possibly FIT into only one year….though it is plausible, and there are seemingly good reasons why it could.  However, until I can understand how in the next year the Battle of Ezekiel, the rebuilding of the temple, the two witnesses, the 7th Seal/7 Trumpets/7 Bowl judgments and all the rest could somehow be accomplished on one year, I’d have to sit down and plot it out.  Besides, as the timeline shows above, the next Jubilee Year will be in 2022.
To Greg:  As you can see on the timeline, I count the Jubilee year as the 1st year in the new sabbatical cycle.  It is the only way it will work.  I know there is a dispute among some scholars as to whether the Jubilee is counted either the same as the sabbath year, or the same as the 1st year in the new sabbath cycle, but I’ve plotted both and the only way it works is by counting the Jubilee/50th year as the 1st year of the new sabbatical cycle.
To blgloden:  Thank you again for seeing the omission-error.  It was my error, but thankfully, God meant it for good, for in searching for the remedy, I found confirmation of the timeline. The timeline is reset and remains intact….with the 70th Week/Third Week of Jacob’s Trouble (from which he will be saved out of) with the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ on Yom Kippur, 2022 – a JUBILEE YEAR!!!    
P.S.:  I used to think if I was wrong I would lose ‘credibility’ (which has sometimes happened.)  But I have found that NOBODY HAS IT ALL RIGHT, BUT EVERYBODY HAS SOME OF IT RIGHT.   So, much like Randy’s idea of the missing pieces of a puzzle, if we can glean “a little here and a little there, line upon line, precept upon precept” eventually we are able to fit those pieces in the right places and the puzzle begins to be put together.  When we make honest errors, with no intent to deceive, I believe that the Lord can still “make all things work toward the good to those who love Him.”  I apologize for the mistake in the first timeline, but I am confident that with all the signs coming together in these last days, we will be excited as we WATCH and anticipate like a kid on Christmas morning…..for our redemption draweth night!
Until…….

Dec 30, 2014 Shemitah years, the Jubilee and the coming Rapture and Apocalypse

It gives me great joy to post this detailed and excellent timeline of events past and those to come.

Thanks to the precise work done by Sherry Vance all the parameters that have been discussed before are placed on a chronological and Biblical supported sequence culminating in the Second Coming in Tabernacles of the year 2022 to start the Kingdom.

Sabbatical & Jubilee Timeline


                                                                TIMELINE
*Jubilee Timeline – Genesis 6:3 > “Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
120 X 50 Jubilee Years = 6000 years.
The 6,000 years / man’s 6 ‘days’, ended on Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, 2000 (The Jewish year 5760)
* God’s time line of history is revealed in Israel, and to know where we are on that time line, watch Israel.  Keep in mind, as you shall see…the Jewish years overlap our Gregorian years (which is where a lot of -people get confused, just as they do with not realizing Jewish “days” overlap our days because they begin at sunset (evening) to sunset (evening.) 
* In addition, there are TWO Hebrew calendars:  In the Torah, the beginning of the year was clearly set at Nisan 1, the context was the description of the first Passover.  “God said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: This month shall mark for you the beginning of the months; it shall be the first of the months for you.” (Ex. 12:1-2)  The spring biblical calendar basically relates to the agricultural cycles; but eventually the Fall Feast of Trumpets and the blowing of the shofar began to be assigned as the head of the civil (or governmental) year known as Rosh Hashanah; and it functions as the ‘new year’, for changing the date for Sabbatical cycles and the jubilee. 
No matter what anyone thinks is the “true calendar”, it is a FACT that the mathematical equations that exist as proof of God’s chosen dates & appointed times, plus the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles shown below, are historically CORRECT, and therefore reliable in the future….otherwise, no one could ever know where we are on God’s Timeline and Plan of Redemption. 
Thus, the years below are listed from Rosh HaShanah to Rosh Hashanah (occurring in the Hebrew month of Tishri, (head of the new year to head of the new year) which is in our ‘September’  and therefore the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars overlap.  We’ll begin at the start of a new Jubilee cycle to show the progression:

survivors was to be found in their ancient homeland.  Only in their own Sovereign
State would the Jews be safe.  Just as Moses had led the ancient Hebrews out of
Egypt, the Zionist leadership was to take them out of Europe.  The birth of the

* Lesson of “The Fig Tree” Israel….’born in a day’, grew leaves, matured at 19 years of age
and reunified Jerusalem….this is the generation which will NOT pass away, as did the generation (20 years of age and upward) of the Exodus  before they could enter the Promised Land.  THIS generation will enter the Kingdom on Earth!

* Notice: Jerusalem was captured in 1917 AND 1967BOTH Jubilee Years!  We are beginning to see a Jubilee “pattern” in the last days since “the dry bones” (Israel) resurrected and re-entered the Covenanted Land.

* Oslo Accords (Land for Peace) signed on Sept. 13, 1993 and presented to the world ON  Rosh HaShanah Sept. 16, 1993.
* Oslo was a “Rehearsal” for the 70th Week because the 70th Week will also

begin with a Land Agreement - confirming the (Abrahamic) Covenant.
* Oslo was signed in a Sabbath year belonging to the previous Sabbatical cycle, therefore it was outside (before) the beginning of the new Sabbatical cycle which would begin the Three Weeks of Jacob’s Trouble.  It was also outside (before) the ending of the 6th Day/6,000 yrs in the year 2000/Hebrew year of 5760.   

* Therefore, Oslo is the lead-in rehearsal to The THREE WEEKS of JACOB’S TROUBLE (three sets of 7 years (777) totaling 21 years following the 3 chapters of Jacob’s Trouble in Genesis 29, 30, 31.) 
* Analogy >  * Jacob desired Rachel and contracted with Laban to labor for 7 years for her hand in marriage.  But Laban deceived Jacob and lied to him, for he had no intention of giving his younger daughter before the eldest.
* Israel desired Peace and contracted negotiations with Arafat & the PLO for the next 7 years; but Yassar Arafat had no intention of agreeing to peace with Israel and had, in fact, even refused to remove from the PLO Charter the written intention to annihilate Israel.  
1993-2000 was 7 years of a “lied-to-agreement.”

2000-2001 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (5th week of yrs)
* Israel’s Rabbis declare the end of 6,000 yrs according to the Hebrew calendar. 
* 6th day ends, 7th day begins.  The 7th Day is the ‘Last Day’ / the Sabbath Day / the Lord’s Day.   It is also the same as Hosea’s 3rd Day…and “in the third day He will raise us up.”
* Israeli Rabbis announce: “We have entered The Time of Jacob’s Trouble (which Israel/”Jacob will be saved out of.”)                               
2001-2002 – 1st year in new cycle
* FIRST WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE
* Intifada begins – On September 28, 2000, just after dawn, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon enters the Temple Mount.  He states “I came here with a message of peace.” 
* Analogy: Jacob had come to Laban in peace, and agreed to labor for 7 years for the desire of his heart (Rachel/Peace) but it had been a lied-to-agreement.  But so strong was his love for Rachel/Peace that even after being deceived, he agrees to labor ANOTHER 7 YEARS in order to acquire the desire of his heart, but is instead, subjected to much ‘trouble.’ 
* The Arab Intifada (uprising) breaks out amid false atrocities and instigation upon Israel.  For the remainder of this Sabbatical cycle, Israel will experience terror, suicide bombers, bus bombings, etc. at the hands of Esau’s descendants, the Arab Palestinians. 
2002-2003 – 2nd year
2003-2004 – 3rd year
2004-2005 – 4th year
2005-2006 – 5th year
2006-2007 – 6th year
2007-2008 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (6th week of yrs) 
* Sabbath year begins quietly.
* The Sabbath year 2007-2008, before the start of the new Sabbatical cycle & 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, was indeed a QUIETer year than the previous 6 yrs primarily due to Israel’s completion of the “Fence” (and in some areas “Wall” separating Arab & Jewish settlements) which prevented suicide bombers and terrorists from crossing into Jewish villages.)
* Analogy: Jacob had now completed 14 years of laboring in Laban’s household, working to
marry Laban’s daughters. He was now no longer “under contract” and during this “quiet year” Rachel conceived & bare Joseph, after which Jacob considered going “home” to his own country.  But Laban asks him to “tarry and he will pay whatever wages he wants.  Jacob considers the offer and accepts, turning his attention to his “economy” – building wealth & an inheritance
from Laban’s flocks & herds. 
2008-2009 – 1st year in new cycle
* SECOND WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE
At the very start of the new Sabbatical cycle & 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, global attention focuses on the economy (just as the analogy shows Jacob had turned his attention to his economy) because on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 29, 2008 the Stock Exchange crashes at 777.68 (Three sevens plus .68 for the Hebrew year 5768.)  Personally, I consider this was a “heads-up” warning from God that on Rosh Hashanah 5768  we had entered the exact middle seven of the three sevens that herald the LAST DAYS….or > 7x7x7=21 years) = 1994 + 21 = 2015.  
Barack Hussein Obama elected President, giving him a seat of power and possibly setting the stage for the coming antichrist….perhaps through his campaign agenda of “Hope & Change/Yes We Can” which would (and is well on the way to) cause the demise of the United States of America (possibly one of the reasons the U.S. is not seen as a world power in the last days.)

Comparing the analogy in Genesis with this last Sabbatical year of the 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble,     we see that Jacob has finally left Laban and he is on his way home.  We know that God is watching over him because the angels of God met him as he left Laban behind and went on his way.  (The archangel Michael is the chief angel over Israel and his warrior angels are accompanying Jacob and his family on

their way home.  Michael guards God’s chosen people.  This is necessary for Jacob is about to tremble and wrestle with God….and “he will prevail.” 
* Night begins to fall and Jacob makes the best preparations (the IDF) that he can to provide for his ‘family’s safety against Esau, but he is wary and afraid.  He goes to bed but gets back up and divides his family into 2 separate camps so as to preserve at least a remnant if they are attacked.  (This can be seen even in the recent Gaza War – Jacob’s strategy is to move his people back from the borders and create a buffer zone for their safety.)  Satisfied as much as he can be, Jacob was left alone.
* Alone indeed, even now, Jacob is experiencing an expotential rise in worldwide anti-semitism…..again.  Jacob is condemned for defending himself.  Jacob has no true allies anymore.  He is alone and the night is upon him.
* I believe by this coming Spring, Jacob will be faced with fulfilling the Battles of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17, where he will finally subdue Esau’s decendants (the Palestinians) and Damascus will become a heap of ruins. These enemies are never mentioned again in context with the coming Battle of Ezekiel 38/ Gog & Magog (the hooks in the jaws, bringing Russia & Iran down upon Israel to plunder and take a spoil.)   
* But until the Battle of Ezekiel 38, Jacob is still “secular”, meaning, as a Nation, they have never truly acknowledged and honored the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob.  But after the Battle of Ezekiel, Israel will just have witnessed & experienced God’s deliverance from their certain annilhilation.  And so Jacob wrestles (spiritually) with the Angel of the Lord – he doesn’t let go – he wrestles to understand  this supernatural intervention & deliverance when he had been left alone in the world, and Jacob finally recognizes the God of his fathers who delivered him and he asks the ‘man’ to bless him before he will

release Him.  Jacob is renamed Israel because he has prevailedand Israel once again becomes God’s people and God says He will again be their God.
* NOW Israel is prepared to enter his last Week as per Daniel 9:24 – “Seventy Weeks are determined upon thy people and upon the holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to annoint the most Holy.”  And so the 70th Week begins.  

    

2015-2016 - 1st year in new cycle – Jubilee – 50th Year
* I believe that on the eve of Rosh HaShanah, September 13, 2015, during the darkness of the new moon, at the very start of a new Sabbatical cycle and a Jubilee Year, the full number of Gentiles will have come in and the Church Age of Grace will end, and the Resurrection of the dead-in-Christ and the Rapture/Translation of the living believers will take place, fulfilling the first Fall Feast, the Feast of Trumpets….and it will happen at the very ‘Last Trump’ – the longest and loudest of the 100 that are sounded at that time.
* Regardless of what the proponents of the heretical “Replacement Theology” teach, God is not finished with Israel.  He will bring them to Redemption in the last/70th Week.  But He will first bring the Church Age of Grace to a close at the Resurrection & Rapture of all Believers and then turn His full attention to Israel, His Glory!  And He will cleanse the earth of the spilled blood of the innocent by requiring the blood of the guilty in the 7th Seal blood judgments of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Bowls.  THIS is what the 70th Week is for!….”to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Dan. 9:24)   
The Lord is now preparing to set the captives free! 
* THIRD WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE BEGINS
* THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL BEGINS
* It is the JUBILEE YEAR that begins the countdown to the end of Jacob’s Trouble and the redemption of Israel by the Second Coming of the Messiah.
* ISRAEL AND THE WORLD NOW ENTER THE DAY OF THE LORD!  
It may be helpful to think of these next 7 years 2015-2022 as one complete “day”, or evening & morning = the night Jacob wrestles with the Lord, and in the morning Jacob lifts up his eyes to see the reconciliation with his brother Esau.  But much will take place during that “evening & morning” constituting “The DAY of the Lord before Israel’s reconciliation & redemption takes place. 
1st  year of the 70th Week

*  Israel has once again turned back to God in recognition of His deliverance and now
calls for their Temple to be built so they can return (nationally) to their Old Testament Covenant Worship of God: offering sacrifices once again.  They do not yet know their Messiah but when He returns “the second time” they will finally understand when they SEE Him.
* The as-yet-unrevealed-antichrist confirms the covenant with Israel and “the many” (nations) paving the way for the building of the temple.

                                                      Matthew 24:22
Feb. 13, 2019 is 1335 days from ‘the last great day’ – the 8th day of Tabernacles, Oct. 18, 2022 when the Kingdom shall begin. Daniel 12:12 states: “Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.”  This is the promise to those who will have to “endure” the Great Tribulation which is about to begin.

* Keep in mind as you read this timeline, that these things must begin in a Jubilee Year in order to accomplish the cleansing, atoning, and reclaiming of all of Creation, including the Redemption of God’s people, the Jews.  It will be a 7 year process…..and if this coming new Sabbatical cycle and Jubilee Year of 2015-2016 does not start that process, then we must wait another 50 years!  IMPOSSIBLE!, given the state of the planet now.  So let’s keep watching, preparing our hearts and spirits to receive our salvation which the Lord is about to perform!

Dec 20, 2014 Shemitah 2014-2015 Rapture, Yom Kippur Apocalypse and second coming 7 years after

It is no coincidence that in the last few years so much information have been discovered about the timeline that God is on. The discovery of the blood red moons by Mark Biltz and the discovery of the effects of the Shemitah and the Jubilee years done by Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn have put into perspective the nearness of the hour we live in to the Rapture of the Church, the start of the seven year tribulation and the second coming of Jesus.

Randy in his post of Dec 14, 2014 about the post of Sherry Vance has pointed us to a superbly written dissertation of end times events.

After reading Sherry Vance article I find myself in concurrence 100 % with her well orchestrated end time scenario and the scriptures that back up her conclusions.

The picture has been coming into focus as more discoveries and internet communication join us to bring quickly all these analysis and thoughts, based on prophetic scripture, together.

Thanks Randy for an article that I had missed and that is of the utmost importance.

“Great Post by Sherry Vance…….if you didn’t see it, it’s a MUST READ !”


Another very good post on Five Doves today. I have followed Sherry Vance’s posts on Five Doves for over 8 years. When she writes something it is in depth and very thoughtful ! This is a follow up to Jim Bramlett’s post on Sir Isaac Newton. She references one of my favorite “signs” …..the day the DOW dropped 777.68 points on Rosh Hashanah 2008 AND…….she (like me) believes the “most likely” Jewish Feast for the Rapture is Rosh Hashanah and she too believes September 2015 could be…….should be…… a very important time to be watching !1 Tic Toc !1 
Post yourself……LIKE….SHARE……COMMENT…………..

Sherry Vance (30 Nov 2014)
Reply to Jim Bramlett’s: Newton’s prediction of the timing of Christ’s return


Colonel Bramlett,
    
I have thought for some time that the Resurrection will occur on the eve of the Feast of Trumpets, September 13, 2015 and after that, “we who are alive and remain” will be caught up together with them in the Rapture.   So if I may, I’d like to comment on a couple things in your email:
        “Based on “Newton’s riddle” the book says, “Messiah’s possible return to earth will be on or before the year 2016.”
I believe that is CORRECT because when Rosh Hashanah 2015 begins the new Sabbatical cycle on Sept. 14, 2015, it will actually be the Jewish New Year of 5776 which is Tishri 1, 2016 on the Hebrew calendar!  ….except it won’t be Newton’s “Second Coming” on Yom Kippur, instead, it will be the Resurrection/Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets!
Not only that, but the new Sabbatical cycle of Rosh Hashanah 2015-2022 (which I equate as being the 70th Week), will begin with a JUBILEE YEAR!….and something significant occurs in the Jubilee Year >>> the Land reverts back to its original owner (indeed its CREATOR!), as the year of Jubilee demands and which also had occurred in the Jubilee years of 1917-18 and 1966-67.Hmmm… Is there any land in Israel not in the hands of the original owner?  Yes, there is!  Can someone say The Temple Mount?!  There is a reason Jerusalem is now front page news…..Jerusalem has become a cup of trembling to the world!  Israel is being prepared for 70th Week, which will be the process of returning ALL Land to the Rightful Owner/Creator via the judgments of the 70th Week of Daniel!  It will take those 7 years of the 70th Week to bring to fulfillment Daniel 9:24 > :…to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness…What else is there about a Jubilee?  In addition to it having to do with property reverting to its original owners, we can also expect that it has to do with finances (and the stock market, which the financial heads are predicting another major global crash far worse than the one in 2008 when the stock market finished at 777.68, which not only did the 3 sevens indicate the Three Weeks of Jacob’s Trouble, from 2000-2007/2007-2015/2015-2022) but also occurred in the Hebrew Year of 5768!

I disagree with Newton’s idea that there is no linguistic basis for adding (7 weeks & 62 weeks) those two numbers (49 and 434), because there is indeed a basis for adding the two together when one considers it gives us the mathematical equation that predicted when Jesus would announce Himself as Messiah! 

            If you look at the time predicted of Christ’s birth, the Magi (who revered Daniel and his God-given insights) had studied copies of the Book of Daniel and they  knew of the prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27. At the time of the appearance of the Star, they knew they were within a lifetime of this prophecy coming to pass. When they saw the Star of Bethlehem, their knowledge of this remarkably precise (and mathematical) prophecy, plus the promptings of the Holy Spirit, caused them to embark on the journey to Israel to pay their homage to the Jewish Messiah/King who was foretold to come at a precise appointed time. 

The prophecy concerning the timing of the coming of Jesus Christ, was given in unbelievable detail 600 years before Jesus was born. You will see that God foretold to the exact day when the Jews would be officially presented their long-awaited Messiah on Palm Sunday, April 6, 32 A.D.!  (Fulfilled to the letter, Matthew 21:1-11)

It was because of GOD’S UNPARALLELED MATHEMATICAL PROPHECY found in Daniel 9:24-26: “Seventy weeks of years, or 490 years (70 weeks of years) are decreed upon your people and upon your holy city Jerusalem, to finish and put an end to transgression, to seal up and make full the measure of sin, to purge away and make expiation and reconciliation for sin, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint a holy of holies. Know, therefore, and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem until the coming of the anointed one, a prince, shall be seven weeks of years, and sixty-two weeks of years; it shall be built again with city square and moat, but in troublous times. And after the 62 weeks of years, shall the anointed one be cut off (killed) and shall have nothing and no one belonging to and defending Him…” 

At the precise point in history when the 7 + 62 Weeks of Years occurred, Israel could expect Messiah to announce Himself as Messiah. What great news! This meant that Israel could not miss Messiah, right? All they had to do was to be aware of this prophecy, to count the weeks of years and be cognizant of current events in Israel as they unfolded.

Anyway, the Jewish people missed the fact that the “weeks of years” had come to completion at the time of Jesus’ birth and ministry. They did not notice there were exactly 69 Weeks of Years (173,880 days) between the decree of King Artaxerxes in 445 B.C to rebuild Jerusalem until Palm Sunday, April 6, 32 A.D.!!  But God had wonderfully foretold to Daniel the exact day on which Messiah was to announce Himself as King.

On this day after Palm Sunday, when Jesus delivered the preview of “Jacob’s Trouble” (Matthew 24), He didn’t address the time gap (of the Church Age which was about to commence) and it wasn’t shown on Daniel’s timeline either.  No matter how long this time gap was going to be, Jesus acted as though it was non-existent and so immediately after the 69th week closed, He introduced Israel to the events that begin to unfold in the final “one (last) week.”

Jesus didn’t say why He didn’t address the time gap, but what it does is place the beginning of the 70th Week hard against the last day of the 69th week, and if this latter day is dated, so is the former.   THIS MEANS, IN ESSENCE, THAT THE DAY AFTER PALM SUNDAY, APRIL 6, 32 AD, WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN THE PREVIEW OF THIS FINAL WEEK ON MONDAY APRIL 7, 32 AD WHEN HE RE-ENTERED THE CITY:
Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.  And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.” (Matthew 21:18-19)
It was a deliberate, chosen moment – and it is meant to convey to us that there has been a divinely decreed delay (the Church Age of Grace), and that the nation that rejected its Messiah on Palm Sunday would welcome the anti-Messiah on Fig Tree Monday, NOT THAT MONDAY, BUT A FAR OFF DAY THAT WOULD BEGIN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CHURCH AGE ENDED.
The true dates of the seven days that began on Palm Sunday and ended with the resurrection “three days and three nights” after the crucifixion is crucial to the timeline of the seventy weeks for it is built upon these dates and whatever chronology is constructed, it must be founded on the seven days that began on the dated day in the Bible, April 6, 32 AD, Palm Sunday, and it’s close companion, Fig Tree Monday, April 7, 32 AD – that is, the end of week 69 and the PREVIEW of week 70.

So why did Israel’s spiritual leaders miss this prophecy, when the pagan Magi did not? The answer is simple: They didn’t just ‘forget’ to count the days & years. 

Several hundred years before Christ was born, Jewish leaders began to believe and propagate two grievous teachings in error.

    1) They taught that the sacred Scriptures could not be taken literally because they were not totally inspired by God, and thus contained errors.

    2) They taught that prophecies were not to be taken literally, but spiritually. Prophetic books such as Daniel were not even taught anymore because they contained so much prophecy. After several generations of not believing, therefore not teaching “this nonsense”, spiritual leaders of Jesus’ day were completely unaware of this prophecy. Thus, they were unaware of the “time of their visitation.

The same wrong teaching concerning inspiration of the Bible and its inerrancy is occurring today. Most people today are unaware that all 300+ prophecies concerning Jesus’ Second Coming are coming to pass or have already occurred. These people are unaware – simply & ignorantly unaware.  Ignorance is bliss, as they say?  Well, many unaware people will miss Jesus’ Second Visitation, to their eternal peril.

I believe that Jesus will fulfill the 1st Fall Feast, the Feast of Trumpets, on Sept. 14, 2015 and His Second Coming will fulfill the 2nd Fall Feast of Yom Kippur 7 years later on October 5, 2022,  which is the Day of Atonement — JUDGMENT DAY!…….and  here is why:

There was a Yom Kippur for the Lord’s First Coming and there is a second Yom Kippur for His Second Coming. 

The Lord started His ministry on Yom Kippur.  Read Isaiah 61:2 and then Luke 4:16-21 >>> “To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord….and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn…” etc.  All over the world Jewish people read the same Torah portion for a given Sabbath….they are all on the same page……and the “acceptable year” is a term for a Jubilee Year. 
In the synagogue, on the Sabbath, Jesus read the Isaiah passage when He began His ministry…..but after reading To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, Luke 4 tells us He suddenly stopped…and “closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down.  and the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. And He began to say unto them, THIS DAY IS THIS SCRIPTURE FULFILLED IN YOUR EARS.”  THIS WAS ON YOM KIPPUR. Isaiah 61 is the prescribed Jewish scripture reading for Yom Kippur.  Where Jesus stopped reading applies only to His first coming!   The second part applies to His second coming which is yet to be fulfilled prophetically >> “And the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn..”>>>> This is the Day of the Lord! 
Knowing that Jesus’ ministry STARTED on Yom Kippur is a major foretelling of when Jesus is also going to return to earth by His very own words.  This will also be on Yom Kippur.  It’s almost like a great PAUSE in the Isaiah reading between the two Yom Kippur’s, with 2,000 years of history intervening in that ‘pause.’
Ezekiel also saw the Lord’s return on Yom Kippur.  Ezek.40:1-3 says “In the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month(the beginning of the year means “the head of the year and is where we get the name for Rosh HaShanah….the 10th month is Tishrei and the 10th day is YOM KIPPUR).  Verses 2 & 3 state: “In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south. And he brought me thither, and behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.”
Then we also see in Daniel 9:25 that Jesus second coming will occur on the specific date of Yom Kippur.  Remember this is a dual prophecy of 7 weeks and 62 weeks.  After the 62 weeks Messiah is to be killed and this was for His First Coming as the Messiah.   Daniel 9:26 says “After threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off (“karath” – killed)
Apply that 7 weeks of years, to ‘when Jerusalem is restored for the second time’, ‘for a second coming prophecy of the Messiah’.   WHEN did Jerusalem get restored for a second time?  When the Jews took back Jerusalem on June 7, 1967 during the Six Day War!  This started the clock for the Lord’s Second Coming, again, on Yom Kippur.
Isaiah 11:11-12 – “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left: He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
Passover Death of Jesus Christ
Unleavened Bread Burial of Jesus Christ
First Fruits Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) The outpouring of the Holy Spirit
Trumpets The resurrection of the righteous dead and rapture of the church
Atonement The Second Coming
Tabernacles The Messianic Era
Now here is where (and why) I digress from the calculation of exactly 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015) being when Newton saw as the Second Coming and Colonel Bramlett suggestions it may instead possibly be the Rapture:
    The Resurrection/Rapture will be fulfilled at His Coming in the air at the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015 (Hebrew date: Tishri 1, 2016, New Year/New Sabbatical cycle/Jubilee Year); while the Second Coming will be fulfilled 7 years later, on Yom Kippur, Oct. 5, 2022 (as the explanation above demonstrates).  From the new Sabbatical cycle beginning on Sept. 14, 2015 in a year of Jubilee, the process of returning the Land (and all of Creation) will begin as it reverts to the ORIGINAL OWNER/CREATOR via the Judgments that will fulfill Daniel 9:24 – to bring an end to all iniquity,  THEN….the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles will begin the Millennial Kingdom of God on Earth, when God will dwell, or ‘tabernacle’, with men.
We are so very close!  But wait!  Is there still doubt?  Well, look at it this way > All of the appointed times rely upon the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles.  If the 70th Week of Daniel does not follow the Resurrection/Rapture at the head of this coming new Sabbatical cycle of 2015-2022 and the Jubilee Year of 2015-2016, then we must all wait another 50 years!  Does anyone believe the world can last that long?….or is it ripe now with iniquity that will continue to increase and escalate until such a time as has never been on earth?      
Sir Isaac Newton said, “About the time of the end, in all probability, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation in the midst of much clamour and oppositions.”  I like to think we are part of that body. 
I know this is long, and yet there is so much more, but there is simply no other way to get  understanding than by taking the time to read and analyze it.  So for those who really truly want to understand where we are on God’s Timeline, there is no other way but to study it. 
Until…..

Dec 2, 2014 Will the end of this shemitah 2014-2015 usher in the seven year Apocalypse?

I have posted a lot of information already about the Harbinger and the Mistery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn, but there is always new interviews made and new information gleaned. This is the case for these three parts videos done by Jonathan and Kevin Clarkson of Prophecy in the News.

One of the biggest judgments that came unto the USA and the world on the last Shemitah year of 2018 was the election that November of president Barack Hussein Obama. As shemitah goes in cycles of 7 years I believe that the present shemitah 2014-2015 will see the rise of the Antichrist, BHO, as the rider of the white horse on the first seal of the book of Revelation.

These seven years were given by God as warning to come back to Him, which if ignored will usher the world into the seven year Apocalypse that will end on the next shemitah year of 2021-2022.

This part has been added to the original post. I finish watching Part 3 after posting and it led me to add this part.

Twenty two minutes into the video Jonathan states that he was in Washington on 9/10 when Obama made the declaration of the war with ISIL and he compared these terrorists with the Assyrians that destroyed Israel a long time ago as being of the same area and ethnicity. Two weeks after that God send me a message that I posted on 9/24 that is linked below that ties it to what Jonathan saw from God also.

I will say that he and I are two witnesses of the same message from the Lord.

Oct 3, 2014 The date of the start of the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy

There are very well thought trains of thought in this article about the Shemitah and Jonathan Cahn. The observation about the Messiah will be cut off in Daniels prophecy at the end of the 69 weeks of years is the reason I always thought that the last week of years would start where it left off in Passover crucifixion day.

It could be that the punishment was for the not keeping the Shemitah law and the punishment of the 70 weeks of years follows a Passover chronology. There can be no doubt that the first 69 concurrent weeks of years had to follow a Passover chronology due to the indisputable timing of the date where the 69th week of years ended (Passover). So in conclusion the seventieth year of weeks should start in Passover but due to the many hundreds of years in between it could be chosen by God at another date.

My Shemitah Problem

By Daymond Duck

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has written a new book called The Mystery of the Shemitah. Many don’t understand it and some are asking questions so the purpose of this article is to try to explain some things. But before I do, I want to say that I haven’t read the book. I have only read articles about the book so what I have read could be wrong or I could misunderstand it.

God made a covenant to give all of the Promised Land to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants forever (Gen. 17:7-8, 18-21; Gen. 28:13; 35:10-12). But before they entered the Promised Land, God told Moses to:

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, ‘When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard’” (Lev.25:2-4).

Before the Jews entered the Promised Land, God asked them to let the land go through a seven-year cycle (called a Shemitah cycle). He wanted them to plant and harvest crops for six years and to let the land rest during the seventh year (called a Sabbath year or a Shemitah year). Notice, two things: 1) a Shemitah cycle (a seven-year cycle) and 2) a Shemitah year (the seventh year of a Shemitah cycle).

If the Jews would obey God by keeping the Shemitah cycle including the Shemitah year, He would bless them in many ways (Lev. 25:4-13). But if the Jews didn’t obey Him by keeping the Shemitah cycle, including the Shemitah year, He would walk contrary to them in fury and they would suffer in many ways (Lev. 26:27-35).

If they ignored the Shemitah year by planting and harvesting crops, He would remove them from the land one year for every year they did that (Lev. 26:35). And He would punish them seven times more than that for the other sins they committed during the Shemitah cycle over and above not letting the land rest (Lev. 26:28).

To make a long story short, the Jews eventually stopped observing the Shemitah cycle and the Shemitah year by planting and harvesting crops in the seventh year. And God let them get away with that for 70 Shemitah cycles (70 cycles X 7 years/cycle = 490 years).

During these 70 Shemitah cycles, they planted and   harvested a   forbidden crop every seventh year until they had planted and harvested 70 forbidden crops (1 forbidden crop in 7 years, 2 in 14 years, 3in 21 years, etc. until they had planted and harvested 70 forbidden crops in 490 years).

After the Jews planted and harvested their seventieth forbidden crop, God used Babylon to remove them from the land for 70 years. He punished them 70 years for planting and harvesting 70 forbidden crops (Jer. 25:8-13; 29:10). But He still needed to punish them seven times more (7 X70 = 490 years or 70 Shemitah cycles) for the other sins they committed during the 70 Shemitah cycles (Lev. 26:28).

Daniel was fasting and praying about this when the angel Gabriel appeared and told him the Jews still had to be punished for seventy weeks of years (70 Shemitah cycles for their other sins; Dan. 9:24). Gabriel said starting with a command to restore and to build Jerusalem seven weeks of years (7 Shemitah cycles) and 62 weeks of years (62 Shemitah cycles) will pass and Messiah the Prince would appear (Dan. 9:25). Then, Gabriel mentioned one final week of years (one final Shemitah cycle that some call the Tribulation period).

Now, as I understand it every new Shemitah cycle begins on the first day after a Shemitah year (the first day after the seventh year of a cycle) and every Shemitah cycle ends on the last day of a Shemitah year (the last day of the seventh year). Thus, we are being told that the seventieth Shemitah cycle will begin on the first day after a Sabbath year. And we are being told that because the seventieth Shemitah cycle is the Tribulation period (which appears to be wrong), we are being told the Tribulation period will begin on the first day after a Sabbath year.

The Jewish civil year always begins on Rosh Hashanah which means “the beginning of the year” (New Year’s Day). The seventh year (Shemitah year) of the present Shemitah cycle began on Sept. 25, 2014 and it will end on Sept. 13, 2015. The next Shemitah cycle will begin the next day on Sept. 14, 2015 (Rosh Hashanah of next year) and we are being told that could be the beginning of the Tribulation period. So we are being told if the Tribulation period doesn’t begin on Sept. 14, 2015, it won’t begin until Rosh Hashanah 2022 (the next Shemitah cycle), or Rosh Hashanah 2027 (the next Shemitah cycle), etc.

Now here is the problem I am having with this: The 70 weeks of Daniel are 70 seven-year cycles, but they don’t appear to line-up with the Shemitah cycle. The first 69 weeks of Daniel didn’t end in the fall on the last day of a Shemitah year (on the day before Rosh Hashanah). They ended in the spring on Nisan 10 (Palm Sunday; Ex. 12:1-6; Jn. 12:1, 12) and Jesus was cut off or crucified a few days later in the spring on Passover Day (Matt. 26:2).

So if the seventieth week of Daniel (the Tribulation period) is a continuation of the first 69 weeks the Tribulation period will begin in the spring, it won’t line up with the Shemitah year and won’t begin on Rosh Hashanah. If the Tribulation period does begin on Rosh Hashanah it won’t be a continuation of the first 69 weeks of Daniel (first 69 cycles). Either I am missing something or else something doesn’t fit.

Having said this, thanks to my good friend, Mike Hile, I am finding some very interesting things about economic issues. This article will be too long if I go into all of them, but I want to mention just one.

On 9/11 [Sept. 11. 2001] planes were flown into the WTC towers. President Bush shut down the banks for 6 days. They were closed on the day before Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 16, 2001). But they reopened the next day on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 17, 2001, and the stock market dropped more than 700 points. So that large decline in the Stock Market happened on Rosh Hashanah in 2001 which was the beginning of the next seven-year cycle.

Seven years later on Sept 29, 2008, the day before Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 30, 2008) the Stock Market dropped 777 points. That was the largest one-day decline in the history of the Market and it triggered the current Great Recession. So this happened on the day before Rosh Hashanah 2008.

The current seven-year cycle will end on Sept. 13, 2015 the day before Rosh Hashanah. Jonathan Cahn is not predicting an economic collapse on Sept. 13, 2015, but he is alerting people to this trend. He claims to be getting calls from financial analysts that are watching this. He says the state of Israel is funding a study of it. He believes it is time for people to put their spiritual house in order.

The Bible does predict a Global economic collapse and Jonathan’s information on these economic issues bear watching.

July 26, 2014 The nuclear weapons countries of the world and their role in the end times

In the study of Bible prophecy it is imperative to look at the nations of the world military capabilities to assess the possible role these nations will have in the end times. For example in determining who the Antichrist will be you would be very wrong if you said Fidel Castro of Cuba, no matter how much you despise this man. He would not have a nations military capability to support his role.

In looking at the first two seals of the book of Revelation we can see two men, one riding a white horse and the other riding a red horse. The first is a skilled archer and he holds a bow in his hand the second is good in personal close encounter combat and it is given a sword.

The first rider is given the command to go out and conquer militarily as the bow implies and the second is given the order to take away the peace of the world. I identify these men as the leader of the USA (white horse) and the leader of Russia.

From the text it is implied that these two are responsible for the deaths of 1/4 of the population of the world or approximately 1,782,000,000 people. This number is gigantic and hard to understand. In the war raging beteen Hamas and Israel at this time the number of casualties do not reach the 1,000 killed.

It is quite evident that to kill 1/4 of the world, weapons of mass destruction must be utilized and nuclear weapons would be the first choice. I have a hard time placing the prophecies of the bible listed in other books like Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38-39, Jeremiah 49, Ezekiel 29 and all the others falling before the time of the book of Revelation. and within the context of the first two seals. Who is the red horse rider doing war against? Where is Islam in the book of Revelation? If Islam is gone who is left.

These questions must be answered as all end times prophecies must follow a logical outcome and all must be considered in the relationship of one to the other.

I am including here a link to the nuclear power nations of the world. You can also find info on their armies and economies that form an essential part of modern day war making abilities, again think of Fidel Castro’s example.

Nuclear forces

At the start of 2014 nine states—the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea—possessed approximately 4000 operational nuclear weapons. If all nuclear warheads are counted, these states together possessed a total of approximately 16 300 nuclear weapons (see table below) compared to 17270 in early 2013.Read the full press release.

Overall inventories are declining, primarily due to the United States and Russia continuing the drawdown of their nuclear arsenals as a result of the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START) and unilateral reductions. But the pace of reductions appears to be slowing compared with a decade ago. At the same time, all the nuclear-armed states are modernizing their remaining nuclear forces and appear determined to retain sizeable nuclear arsenals for the foreseeable future.

The USA and Russia continue to reduce their arsenals but at a slower pace than a decade ago and have extensive modernization programs underway for their remaining nuclear delivery systems, warheads, and production facilities. The nuclear arsenals of the other smaller nuclear-armed states are considerably smaller, but all are either developing or deploying new weapons or have announced their intention to do so.

Reliable information on the status of the nuclear arsenals and capabilities of the nuclear-armed states varies considerably. The USA has disclosed substantial information about its stockpile and forces, and the UK and France have also declared some information. Russia refuses to disclose the detailed breakdown of its forces counted under the New START treaty (even though it shares the information with the USA), and the US Government has stopped releasing detailed information about Russian and Chinese nuclear forces.

China, India and Pakistan are the only nuclear weapon states that are expanding their nuclear arsenals, while Israel appears to be waiting to see how the situation in Iran develops. There is an emerging consensus in the expert community that North Korea has produced a small number of nuclear weapons, as distinct from rudimentary nuclear explosive devices.
