Dec 10, 2019 Part II of the Two Witnesses of Revelation Gary Stearman & Bill Salus

leave a comment »

The two witnesses make their appearance on the earth on the first day of the seven years of 360 days Tribulation.

It is a time of unparalleled evil and destruction and the judgment of God will be poured on the people of the earth that reject and rebel against the love and mercy God makes possible through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The possibility of accepting Jesus to does who live at this time will still be possible but the chances of escaping horrible pain, suffering and death will probably elude most even when their eternal salvation will be guaranteed.

Bill makes a call at the end of the video for unbelievers to come to Jesus Christ while the time is possible. Nobody can do it for you, it is personal and God knows your thoughts before you have them, so there is no fooling Him with a false acceptance.

Please do not be deceived by Satan into believing that God will not destroy His enemies and send them to eternal hell as you know not God.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is the rationality for this conclusion:

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

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

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

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

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

Aug 30, 2018 A prophesy interview by Gary Stearman of Bill Salus on his Next Prophecies book

In this in depth interview of Bill Salus the point that jumps out is the new way that the author treats the timing and meaning of prophecies that are hard set in peoples minds as having a certain chronology and interpretation.

Both men bring different perspective concerning the times and interpretation of the well read end times prophecies.

Their discussion opens up a box of questions that are difficult to pinpoint as to the meaning and timing of events coming in the future.

Great dialog by these two outstanding Bible prophecy scholars, thank you Gary and Bill.

Douglas Henney (1 July 2018)
Things might unfold a week sooner than what I was thinking


On May 27th, I posted a four part email here on Fivedoves in which I expressed the possibility of us going home on, or about, July 14/15.
Recently, I came across some things that have me thinking it may end up happening a week earlier, on July 7/8.
Here are the links to the prior posts to reference since what I am presenting here still includes a lot of my thinking in these prior emails:
A main premise in my prior thinking was that even though the Jewish Sanhedrin currently have a calendar that is not Biblically accurate, that God will still fulfill a significant type/shadow event, namely a correctly counted Pentecost, on that calendar while at the same time fulfill the rapture’s type/shadow event on His Biblically accurate calendar, namely the 18th day of the 3rd month of when God came down at Mount Sinai during a long shofar blast.  Both of these fall on July 14/15 this year.  In other words, God will fulfill both types/shadows at the same time.
I was almost in a bit of a shock when I discovered a few weeks later that there is yet another date that does the very same thing of having a Pentecost and a “18th day of the 3rd month Sinai event” dovetail together.  This happens a week prior, on July 7/8.
I am now thinking that this July 7/8 ends up being a better fitting puzzle piece, and I will try to explain this.
The Sanhedrin’s correctly counted Pentecost (7 weeks plus 50 days) on July 14/15 is a week after the correctly counted Pentecost on the popular Jewish calendar on July 7/8.  The reason for this is how one determines the beginning of a month.
July 7/8 is the 18th day of the 3rd month on the constellation calendar.  This month is commonly referred to as Gemini (shows a union of a couple).  A number of “watching for Jesus” folks have received understanding/revelation from God to pay attention to Gemini.  This Gemini focus is actually referencing the constellation calendar.
For folks not familiar with this calendar, when Jesus died and resurrected, it was when the sun was in “the Lamb of God” constellation, commonly referred to as Aries.  Jesus’ death and resurrection established that constellation month as the first month.
At this time, these constellation months start and end on about the 21st of each of the Gregorian calendar months.
I lean towards the idea that since we, as the body and bride of Christ, have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places per Eph 1:3, that our calendar would also be in the “heavenly places”, or using constellations as months verses referencing the moon. Keep in mind that the constellations (or stars) are part of what God determined as signs, though the evil one has hijacked the original meanings and purpose by fabricating horoscopes (which we are to stay clear from).
We were not given the calendar God gave to the children of Israel.  That one is theirs.  The chosen remnant within Israel-Judah, after the extreme refinement of the coming judgement years, will ultimately inherit God’s earth based kingdom.  The body of Christ, as new creations, will inherit God’s celestial places kingdom once we get new bodies. As the Righteousness of God in our union with Jesus, there is nothing in our core selves/natures that need any refining.  All we are waiting for is new bodies.  These two distinct kingdom realms each have their own unique calendars.
So, the timing of the prior posts is, I think, going to unfold a week earlier than I was thinking.  This also seems to fit better with other pieces coming up, and during the transition of God shifting to dealing with the 144,000 and the chosen remnant within Israel/Judah.
The Sept 23rd/24th Revelation 12 sign does point to a future birth(s).  However, like Pearl Kolibri (sp?) pointed out in one of her Youtube videos, births happen anywhere from 3 weeks prior to the due date, up to 2 weeks after the due date, with only about 4-5% happening on the due date itself.  In other words, the Rev 12 sign pointed to a future window of time wherein the birth will take place.  We are in that window.
So far, no birth happened yet!  Some watchers are already doing counts from June 23rd (9 months after the Rev 12 sign) in light of the purification timeframes described in Leviticus 12.  I think it is a little premature to do this calculation yet, though I believe they are on the right track as I will try to show in what follows.
Leviticus 12 points to periods of time when the birth mother (the focus is not on the baby) cannot come before God in the temple.  40 days if she had a boy.  80 days if she had a girl.
Again, the purification of the mother is the focus of Levitcus 12, not the newly born child.  This is key.  There is confusion in the watching community because folks are not making this distinction.
Now, firstly, a question is, “Who is the mother of the body of Christ, new creations brought into union with the very Godhead?”
Paul teaches in Galatians 4:26 that the Jerusalem above (heavenly places) is free and “she is our mother”.  As new creations, we are born out of a reality that transcends creation.  We are birthed out of or God Himself, yet into His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  God is our “mother”.   In other words, our “mother” who is “above”, does not need the 40 or 80 days of purification.  So, Leviticus 12 does not apply to the body of Christ.  Also, we are the ones about to be birthed out of the earth (so the Rev 12 sign still points to our timing window), yet we are not the mother that Leviticus 12 focuses upon.
However, there is another “mother” and another “baby” also about to be born.  The Chosen Remnant within the modern day children of Israel/Judah are about to give birth to the 144,000.  We are right on the cusp of this.  I am thinking this might happen on July 11-ish, at the midpoint of the rapture-gathering-week, after their three days of darkness similar to what Paul experienced on the road to Damacus.  This timing for the birth of the 144,000, I think, will happen just after we go home, three and a half days after, to be precise.
The Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah is the “mother” about to give birth to the 144,000.  I believe that the Revelation 12 sign points to this mother (Although it could also be alluding to the timing of when the earth “births” the dead in Christ out of her at our homegoing.  If this is valid, I anticipate “the water breaking” just before we go home which might be a tsunami generated from the slumping off of land into the ocean off Hawaii’s main island).
Now, the question is, “Is the group of 144,000 considered male or female?”, thinking in terms of Levitcus 12 and how long they will experienceba purification before, in some way, being brought before God.
If male, then the 40 days from July 11 ends August 19th.  However, August 19 is one week early of Israel’s true Bibiblically accurate Pentecost per the “full moon starts the month” calendar (as I referenced in my prior posts).  In my original posts to Fivedoves, I was anticipating everything starting (including the rapture) on July 15, and not on July 8 like I am considering now.  In that prior scenario, the midweek point for the “birthing” of these 144,000 was July 18.  In that scenario, the adding of 40 days would have fallen on the true Pentecost.  It seemed to fit so well.  Yet, if events unfold starting a week earlier (on July 7/8) than what I originally anticipated, the 40 day purification count for the mother doesn’t fit.
This is when I noticed that Leviticus 12 focuses only on the mother. I had been lumping the mother and baby together. The Leviticus 12 purification timeframes do not apply to the 144,000.  They are the “baby”.  The 144,000 will still be sealed on the true Pentecost of August 26th.  Yet, what about their “mother”, and how does Leviticus 12 relate to this Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah?
I had always assumed the 144,000 are considered a “male” child.  It was a premise I had to reconsider.
What if God sees them as a “female” child, even though the scriptures attach the idea of maleness to the group?  If this ends up being the case, then the remnant’s purification timeframe is 80 days after the birthing on July 11th.
I realized this is not a stretch as I consider maleness as compared to femaleness.  Think in terms that, in the natural realm (this does not apply to the members of the body of Christ wherein there is neither male nor female), the man is the head of the woman.  The description of the 144,000 in Revelation 14, after they raptured at the midpoint of the judgement years, is that they followed the lamb wherever He went (responding to Jesus’ headship) and that they are virgins, and that they are blameless.  This, to me, sounds female.
The group of 144,000 relate to Jesus as their Head, their source.  This is just like what the Bride of Christ does, even though we are made up of males and females.
I am beginning to understand that any chosen people or group of God, when they live before God in righteousness and holiness, do so only as they look to God as their Source, or Head.  In other words, these groups relate to God as “female”.
So, thinking in terms of the 144,000 being a female baby, then their “mother”, the chosen remnant of Israel/Judah, cannot “appear” before God for a total of 80 days.
I added 80 days to July 11th and it lands me smack dab in the middle of the Feast of Tanernacles on the popular Jewish calendar.
(As an aside, I believe God will continue to use their faulty calendar, while also using His true calendar, at least until the witnesses show up to set them straight.)
Now recall from Deut. 9:9, 9:18 and 10:10, that Moses went up and down three times at Mount Sinai for 40 days each time.  Which time did Moses come down “glowing”. It was after the third time!  Why didn’t he come down “glowing” the other two times?  I believe it is because God is showing us when Moses will come back down to Israel in the near future, when he will be arriving in a glowing, glorified body.  So, when might this happen?
On prior years, when I calculated when Moses would have come down that third time “glowing”,  I discovered that he would have arrived in the very middle of the Feast of Tabernacles, the same time Jesus, who was present yet in secret, started to teach Israel openly.  I anticipate that Moses will arrive to the Chosen Remnant in the middle of this coming Feast of Tabernacles.
So, after the 144,000’s “mother” has undergone her 80 days of purification this summer, this timeframe will end at the very same timing of when Moses will return back down to Israel in a glorified body, with a second set of tablets in his hands.  After her 80 days of purification, “the mother who just had a female baby” will be truly ready to hear from God.  Moses will be, to the Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah, a representative of God Himself.  This is on/about September 27/28.
All that I have presented here in this new post is consistent with the idea that the constellation calendar is for the body of Christ, which has the 18th day of the 3rd month on July 7/8, the very same day Pentecost should have been calculated on the popular jewish calendar by adding 50 days to the end of a count of 7 weeks after the Passover’s Feast of Firstfruits.
This means I have July 7/8 as a very high watch date for when we go home, a week earlier than my last set of posts.
Now, I am thinking that Moses, once he comes back down, will be on earth all the way to Jesus’ second coming.  (I am thinking that per Zechariah 1:18-21 that there are a total of four witness : Moses, John, Elijah, and Enoch, two of which will be killed and resurrected/raptured middle of the judgement years).
Moses, due to disobedience, had his original mission of leading Israel into the promised land cut off.  Basicallly, God is going to let Moses finish his assignment during the coming judgement years.  This will include a bit of a rerun for Moses.
Just like his first time (but this next time will be at mid-judgement) Moses will lead the chosen remnant out of a latter days “Egypt” (Rev 11:8 refers to Jerusalem with this term), likely also on the 15th day of the 1st month like Moses did in Exodus 12, and into the wilderness (to Petra for 40 months?)  This remnant will receive their daily bread of manna like Jesus instructed them in the “Lord’s prayer” in order to survive until their promised land is established at Jesus’ second coming.  Moses will finally lead the remnant “into” their promised land, fulfilling his original destiny.
Moses had Joshua with him the first time around.  I think John will fill this role the second time.  Recall what Jesus told Peter about John.  “If I want him to remain til I come . . ,”  Jesus did not mean that John would live for a couple thousand years but that John would not be killed during the judgement years but be present on earth (remain) and be present at Jesus’ second coming.  This means he shows up before Jesus’ second coming.
(As an aside, John’s epistles, in part, are directed to the remnant who will survive the judgement years.  Peter’s epistles are directed, in part, to those who will be be killed for Jesus (like he was) during the judgement years.  Also, Jesus’ teachings, like the sermon on the mount, before His death and resurrection took place, were also directed, in part, to this chosen remnant in the wilderness during the judgement years, who will, at that time, not yet “be saved in one day” until their crucified and resurrected Messiah is revealed at His second coming.
I speculate that Elijah and Enoch will show up in Israel before Moses and John  I am thinking these two will be involved in teaching the 144,000 this summer, and then sealing them, as described in Revelation, and this likely taking place this August 26-ish, or Pentecost on God’s accurate calendar for Israel.  This true Pentecost might be when Enoch returns, for this is the same timing of when he was raptured per Jewish tradition.
Again, I am thinking the Body of Christ was not given the calendar that God gave the children of Israel in the scriptures.  Israel was.  Paul tells us to let no man judge us in terms of feasts, new moons and sabbaths because the substance of those types/shadows is Jesus, in Whom we are made complete.  Our inheritance is not of the earth but is of celestial places.  At the war of Michael against the evil one mentioned in Revelation, where Satan is cast to earth out of celestial dimensions (I am thinking at mid-judgement years), one reason expressed for the “casting down” is that there is “no more room” for Satan and his minions.  Why?  I am thinking that a portion of the body of Christ are going to finally take up our positions in that realm.  This is not to say we will not in some ways be actively involved in doing things on earth during the 1000 year “day of rest”.
However, Paul also explains that the feasts, new moons, sabbaths, and ultimately Israel’s calendar tied to these, are a “shadow of things to come”.  This is the basis for this presentation of my current thinking and anticipations.
Out of all of the above, what do I personally anticipate in the coming days?
As expressed in my prior posts, I am thinking judgement will start on the “end of the church age Babylon” the night of July 4, the end of our 70th “anniversary year” since Israel became a nation.  I think that Jesus gave the nations, and this Babylon in particular, an extra 50 days of grace by referencing our “anniversary years” instead of starting Babylon’s last 70 years right when Israel became a nation.  There are 50 days between May 14, 1948 and July 4, 1948.
July 4/5 the moon is also in the constellation Aquarius and its associated constellations Pegasus and Cygnus.  Per 2 Timothy 4:6-8, Paul gave clues that pointed to this constellation group as he also knew his departure was nigh, or right on the cusp.  Being “poured out as a drink offering” points to Aquarius as the picture of a man pouring out a vessel’s contents onto the ground.  Pegasus, a winged horse, points to a depature like Elijah experienced.  Cygnus has stars whose meanings include “judge”, “he who returns”, and “bringing of rewards”.  All of these are alluded to by Paul in 2 Timothy 4:6-8.  So, from this, I have speculated that whenever we go home in some future month, that the moon would have just been in Aquarius.  July 4th/5th, when the moon is in Aquarius, is just prior to the high watch day of July 7/8 that I am considering for when we might go home.
The night of July 4th might also be the 15th day of the 3rd month in Israel, yet still being on the constellation calendar.  Recall that it was on the 15th day of the 3rd month in Exodus 19 that Israel was gathered at the foot of Sinai, also echoing what the Swedish boy saw in his dream.  I am now wondering if on the night of July 4, if judgement does start on Babylon, if some of us at that very time will have it miraculously revealed to us that we have three days to let others in the body know that they are to get ready before Jesus comes on Sunday.  This would be consistent with what God did with Moses in Exodus 19.
I, for one, really feel like I need to know from God, in no uncertain terms, when Jesus is truly coming before I can give other folks the heads-up.  Even though I believe I am now seeing how a number of pieces are fitting together, I am still not 100% certain.  Being incorrect so many times prior has a way of making a person a bit gun-shy of proclaiming anything.  Perhaps, in God’s plan, and because He is Love and Grace to us, He may just give us a truly miraculous heads-up, just like He did through Moses for Israel, essentially telling us to get ready for Jesus is coming down on the third day during a loud trumpet blast.  This is actually the very thing the Swedish boy saw in his dream.
Sincerely,
Douglas Henney

July 2, 2016 The true Pentecost and the Rapture of the church in August 3/4?

Most of the Bible prophecy buffs, myself included were expecting the Rapture to occur at the feast of Pentecost this year. This feast was calculated in different dates by the Church and by the Jewish religious authorities.

The study of when the feast is supposed to be celebrated presented by Elaine B. originally and brought to our attention again by James Brownlow gives a new date this year at August 3/4.

Let us be in prayer and watchful to use our time to the utmost of efficiency for those dear to us that are blind to see what is coming our way.

James Brownlow (26 June 2016)
Eliane B. and When is Pentecost , “fully come ? “



Eliane  and readers :

That was a most interesting study and internet link you posted last week. The scriptures  do seem to point to August 3 / 4 as being “Pentecost fully come” this year. Could the starting date for the church will also be its ending date ?

In addition to being a high watch, feast date , this also is  exactly to the day, Obama’s SEVENTH birthday in office — August 4th — and because this year is a leap year , August 3 is  calendar day 216 — 6x6x6 — in year 2016 — another 6x6x6.

Also, Pentecost is closely connected to fire. From your links ,
1. Samson torches the Philistines wheat. Judges 15:1-5
2. When Saul was crowned King, Samuel calls down fire from heaven. 1Samuel 12:17-8
3. Cloven tongues of fire descend on those in the upper room. Acts 2:1-4

PS. As your links were not connecting , I was able to access the  websites listed by using google.

“Pentecost “fully come” is on the 28th of the 4th Hebrew month”

Hi, John

It’s been about 4 years since I last posted on Five Doves. I hope you are well and everyone in the community too.

Thank you,

————————————

When is the true Pentecost date? When is it “fully come”?

 

My references are the Creation Calendar website and the Lunar Sabbath website.

 

www.creationcalendar.com

 

http://lunarsabbath.info/index.html

 

In both websites, before touching the subject of the correct method of calculating when the Feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) is fully come, they first explain (with an abundance of scriptural evidence) that the 7th day of the ancient Hebrew week (the weekly Sabbath) is not equivalent to the Gregorian Calendar’s “Saturday”.

 

With that explained, they present the fact that nowhere in scriptures does it say that Pentecost is in spring neither that Pentecost takes place in the beginning of the 3rd Hebrew month (“Sivan”). Pentecost is a summer Feast that concludes the grain harvest. The main grain harvests in Israel were barley (which begins to ripen on the Feast of Firstfruits, on Nisan 16th) and wheat (which ripens in the end of the 4th Hebrew month (also called “Tammuz” after the Babylonian exile) if we’re referring to wheat planted in spring, not in fall or winter. Scripture always refer to new grain not old grain). Only wheat planted in the fall gets ripe in the beginning of the 3rd Hebrew month. Wheat planted in spring takes about 4 months to mature and this can be confirmed by the Department of Agriculture.

 

The Feast of Pentecost falls on the 28th day of the 4th Hebrew month (“Tammuz”). In 2016 this date will land on August 3rd or 4th. Troy Miller (Creator Calendar website’s author) says that it’s the 29th of 4th month, but I think the 28th is the correct counting, because the morrow after the 7th Sabbath (9th of Sivan) is already counted as the 1st day in the counting from 1 to 50. It also depends on one of the previous months having an extra day or not.

 

In the book of Ruth, the story begins in the beginning of the Barley harvest (Ruth 1:22) and ends at the end of the barley AND the wheat harvest (Ruth 2:23). The end of the redemption process [which is the main subject of the Book of Ruth: a Redeemer (type of Christ) taking a gentile bride (type of the Church)] takes place on the Feast of Pentecost. This is a significant hint in Scriptures.

 

There were two silver trumps for the calling of the assembly: one on Pentecost and the other on the Feast of Trumpets. Most people think that the Feast of Pentecost has already been completely fulfilled but then I ask: what’s the meaning of the two loaves of leavened bread being lifter UP by the Priest? Nothing has gone UP to the Father on that Feast yet. In the previous partial fulfillments of that Feasts, things came DOWN from Heaven, not up. I believe that the Rapture of the Churth (Boaz getting married to Ruth) will take place on that Feast. I’m not saying that anything will happen in any specific year. I’m just presenting information about the scriptural Pentecost date, in any year.

 

In the book of Revelation, Christ appears in the middle of the seven candlesticks. The Feast of Pentecost is represented by the central lamp in the Menorah (as the 4th Feast, in the middle of the seven). The rapture or the Bride of the Son of God is a central event in the prophetic calendar.

 

Below I present the articles that refer to the Feast of Pentecost, but first, the reader must understand the Lunar Sabbath explanation in the other articles. The day we know today as “Saturday” (in the Gregorian Calendar) is not the Sabbath of the ancient Hebrew calendar. Secondly, the counting of 50 days comes AFTER seven lunar Sabbaths are counted. The seventh (lunar) Sabbath after Passover is the 8th of Sivan. The morrow after that date is the 9th of Sivan, the 1st day of the omer (counting to 50). The 50th day of the omer is the 28th of 4th Hebrew month.

 

I know that if this is the first time you come across this concept you will find it really strange. But all the scriptural references with regard calendar on the Creation Calendar website are abundant and should be carefully analyzed. Note: I’m referring to the Sabbath and Pentecost studies only. I don’t necessarily agree with other views and doctrines held by the author.

I’ve shared these lines because I noticed that many doves expressed interest in identifying the correct Pentecost date. If anyone doesn’t agree with this line of thought (lunar Sabbaths, Pentecost in summer etc) it’s perfectly OK. It’s not my intention to start an endless thread about this subject.

 

Let me just conclude by saying that, much more important than calendar issues is using all resources we have (time, money, talents) in a wise manner (suggested reading: Luke 16). Our acts here have eternal impact for ourselves and for others, specially unsaved ones. I’ve sincerely been much more concerned about that than about any discussion about dates.

 

Have a blessed day,

March 24, 2016 Why today is the true Passover this year and not on April 23!

The fallowing article explains very well the reason why the year started in March 9 at night so Nissan 1 fell on March 9-10 and Passover on March 23-24 today.

Last night there was a blood moon eclipse making it another consecutive year where the eclipses have fallen on Passover and Sukkot which makes a sextet of blood moons falling in sacred Holidays of our Lord.

This makes this year also a year of Perfect Order which means that the feasts of the Lord fall on the exact days that they were instructed to Moses and the same dates occurring at Jesus crucifixion.

I see also the possibility of the Rapture to be on Pentecost as well as next Sunday on Easter. Thanks Greg for your wise words.

Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?


Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?

The 2016 Jewish Calendar is Wrong

How does God reckon the seasons ?

Genesis 1:14 says “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:”   Therefore, the sun and the moon are used to measure time for seasons, days and years.

When God prepared Israel to move out of Egypt,  he began His teaching in preparation of the first Passover.  This was to be Israel’s first month for calendar reckoning. (Exodus 12:2)    In the tenth day of this month each family was to choose a lamb.  On the fourteenth day, the Lamb would be killed and the blood applied to the door lintels of each family’s home.  This was the preparation for the Lord’s Passover, the night the first born of Egypt would be killed as a judgment against all gods of Egypt.  All those covered by the blood of the Lamb would be “passed over” and saved from the angel of death.

Following Passover, God established the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven day feast, where all leaven would be purged from each home.  Leaven represented sin.  The first day and last day of this feast was to be an holy convocation.  This is an everlasting ordinance for Israel.  The month Israel came out of Egypt was Abib, or Nisan. (Exodus 13:4)

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was for a sign upon Israel’s hand and a memorial between their eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in their mouths because it was with God’s mighty hand that He brought Israel out of Egypt. (Exodus 13:9)

Israel was commanded to keep this ordinance (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) in his season from year to year.  This ordinance was emphasized again in Numbers 9:2 where the “children of Israel were commanded to keep the Passover at the appointed season.

The Scriptures do not provide for a “leap year” alteration of the seasons.  When Israel came into the land which God gave them, these feasts to the Lord were aligned with the agricultural seasons.  We see this in the Feast of First Fruits.  This feast celebrated the barley harvest which generally occurred after the Spring Equinox in the first month.  This is our month of March.

Following the feast of First Fruits was the Feast of Weeks or Shauvot  which was celebrated 50 days later.  This was in accordance with the wheat harvest.  Any change in the seasons, particularly by a month, would necessarily interfere with the stages of growth of the barley and wheat harvests.   Both of these are highly significant for the First Fruits “wave sheaf offering” (Leviticus 23:10-11) and the Shauvot “two loaf wave offering” (Leviticus 23:16-17).  The grains which were used ceremonially in Temple practices would be past harvest if delayed an additional month.

The Jewish tradition of adding a thirteenth month of Adar II to account for a leap year, as they have done in 2016,  is without biblical support.  Adding a leap year to the Jewish lunar calendar is an attempt to align their lunar calendar with the solar calendar.   The application of the traditions of men over the literal teaching of Scripture produces error.

Therefore, the Scriptures teach that the first month is associated with the Spring Equinox in spite of the Jewish leap year tradition.  In Year 2016, the new moon signaling the first month of Abib or Nisan appeared on March 9.

The Spring Equinox falls on March 20 or Nisan 10.  Passover falls on Nisan 14 which is March 23/24, 2016.

Jewish reckoning of the Leviticus 23 feasts in 2016 will result in each holy day being celebrated one month late.  Relying on Israel for any prophetic insight is unwarranted.  God says they have a spirit of slumber such that they should not see and should not hear. (Romans 11:8)

Why is this important ?   It is important because the seven feasts are prophetic.  God’s plan follows the prophetic pattern and teaching of these seven feasts.  If we know the correct feast day, we can be wise watchers.

Did God intend a sextet of Blood Moons rather than the tetrad of 2014/15 ?   Are we missing some materially important prophetic message ?   Torah Calendar has Nisan in March, unlike the Jews who place it in April this year.

There are two lunar eclipses in 2016 occurring again on Passover and Tabernacles when we follow the Scriptures command to keep the feasts in their respective seasons.   These 2016 blood moons, together with the tetrad of blood moons for 2014 and 2015  are unique.  Now the six feast day blood moons of 2014, 2015 and 2016 become a Sextet of Blood Moons.   This may have profoundly significant prophetic implications.

Additionally, the 2016 Feast of Pentecost commences on the evening celebration of Israel’s day of national independence, May 14, 2016.

As for me, I am watching Pentecost 2016 as a potential “rapture” window for the Church.  The weekend of May 14/15, 2016 is a watch date.

As I have written in the past, a Jewish Independence Day/Jewish Holy Day removal of “Christ’s Own” (1 Corinthians 15:20-28) could be the event which, in part, fulfills Romans 11:11.  Could it be the Day of Provocation to Jewish jealousy ?

Dec 4, 2015 The Satanic band and music at the Paris massacre of ISIS terrorists by pastor JD Faraq

This excellent video goes into several very important subjects that should concern many people at this time when an Islamic terrorist couple killed 14 and injured 21 at San Bernadino  California.

As pastor Faraq points out very sharply is the fact that what we are seeing is non other than a religious war that Satan has been wagging using Islam to destroy the West.

He explains the closeness of the Rapture and the security of the Christian.
