The Deal of the Century Aftermath: What Comes Next?



I'm afraid that many are missing the massive significance of this peace deal reveal.  The fact that the Palestinian Authority has already rejected the deal was to be expected.  As a matter of fact, Abbas had "pre-rejected" the deal.  Ever since U.S. recognition of Israel's right to Jerusalem, Abbas has said any American peace plan would be dead on arrival.  That's a given—from the Palestinian side.  Here are some of the key reasons the reveal is a game-changer:


1. The international community has attempted to negotiate a settlement since 1949.  Since that time, the basis for every agreement has been the 1949 Armistice Lines, which are the borders largely coterminous with what is recognized as Israeli territory today.

The problem is, there are dozens of major Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria (the area the world calls "the West Bank").  Furthermore, since 1967 the Israelis have demanded control of the Jordan Valley in order to defend against a future attack.  Using the 1949 Armistice Lines as the basis for negotiations has always been a nonstarter, so every single plan ultimately failed.  Neither side would agree to a final status solution because the non-negotiables on each side were mutually exclusive.

Trump and Kushner have just changed everything.  Recognizing that the Palestinians will never agree, they released a new map, which only allows for "minor land swaps."  And in so doing, they green-lighted Israel's annexation of virtually all of the territory in a final status solution regardless of Palestinian agreement.

Compare the armistice lines, which are currently recognized around the world (first map) to what Israel may possess within weeks (second map):


1949 Armistice Lines (in red)

The Deal of the Century

Israel is about to annex the Jordan Valley, the settlements in Judea and Samaria, and, I imagine, the Golan Heights.

NOTE: While Israel has already extended Israeli laws to the Golan and the U.S. has recently recognized Israel's permanent control, Israel has yet to formally annex the region.  The Deal of the Century makes clear that the Golan will be a part of Israel.


2. To reinforce how quickly this is happening, Netanyahu had originally scheduled an Israeli cabinet vote this Sunday, February 2nd, to annex the territory (source), though this has been postponed for several weeks until the Attorney General of Israel weighs in.

Interestingly, this current peace plan effort began during the August 21, 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse, which occurred 33 days before the Revelation 12 Sign on 9/23.  By the end of this week we will have witnessed the peace plan reveal, USMCA ratification, Brexit, and the emergency Arab League summit.  The following day, Sunday, will occur on the 33rd day of 2020, and since this is a leap year, 333 days will remain in the year after the vote.  It comes 19,233 days after Israel recaptured Jerusalem on June 7, 1967.  Israel's current archenemy Iran was named "Iran" exactly 77 years, 77 months, 77 weeks, and 77 days before this upcoming Sunday's annexation vote (December 27, 1934).  7 years, 7 months, 7 weeks, and 7 days before the vote, Iran's chief ally Vladimir Putin was sworn in for his third term.

Now get this, this past weekend we got confirmation that the peace deal would be revealed, and Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz both left Israel for the United States.  From the Great American Solar Eclipse to Saturday, January 25, 2020, was 888 days exactly.  From the Jewish Nation-State Law to January 25th was 555 days exactly.  The date itself—1/25—is a pointer to Revelation 12:5 in which the corporate male child, the Church, is soon born into Heaven.  To top that off, the country presenting the deal, the United States, has an alternative national anthem that was written exactly 57,777 days before on November 18, 1861.  It's the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," called "Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory" outside of the U.S., which foretells of Christ's return.  Consider the lyrics:

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord [Jesus is coming back!]
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on

Glory, Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel [Believe the Gospel!]
"As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal"
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel [Jesus and His Church accomplish this feat]
Since God is marching on

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Since God is marching on

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; [Trump releases the plan; the trumpet of God will raise and rapture the saints]
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me. [the transfiguration of believers occurs at the rapture]
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Succour to the brave,
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave,
Our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.




But there was still more.  On Saturday, January 25th, the world's oldest woman, Fotima Mirzokulova, died just a few weeks short of her 127th birthday.  She may have been the last woman in the world born in the 1800s.  Sarah, the matriarch of Israel, died when she was 127 years old:

Sarah lived one hundred and twenty-seven years; these were the years of the life of Sarah.
- ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭23:1‬


Interestingly, exactly 127 weeks before yesterday's peace plan reveal was the Great American Solar Eclipse.

3. Israel has changed shape and grown over the course of its nearly 72 years of existence, but consider for a moment the significance of this peace plan and the upcoming annexation in relation to the Parable of the Fig Tree.  Spurred on by the United States, this is Israel's self-imposed division of the land.  Israel will not grow again until God's direct intervention.  The baby has grown as much as it will in this age.  The fig tree has put forth as many leaves as it can before Christ returns.  Israel, in conjunction with the United States and other supporters, is setting aside an area of land for a Palestinian state.




4. While the enforcement mechanism is unclear, the four-year land freeze places a limit on the creation of a Palestinian state after some 71 years of failed negotiations.  Israel will take no action to develop or absorb any of the land set aside for "Palestine" for four years and "Palestine" can have its country in four years if it agrees to the plan.  Since the Palestinians will seemingly never agree, this timetable, by its very nature, is the perfect basis for the man of lawlessness to subsequently strengthen (Hebrew gabar) into a period of seven years (Dan. 9:27), giving the Palestinians more time and restricting the Israelis from taking all of their God-given land for an additional three years.  In the aftermath of the restraining Church's removal into the heavenly realms, the rebuilding of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem will most certainly be included in the Antichrist's deal.  Rebuilding the Temple and restarting sacrifices will be a covenant with death, in light of the once-for-all atoning sacrifice of Christ (see Isa. 66:1–6, 28:15–18, and Heb. 10:1–18, respectively; see also Rom. 8:2 and Gal. 4:24–25).




5. The Deal of the Century, technically called "Vision for Peace," and eerily referred to in shorthand throughout the deal as "The Vision," has already been agreed to by one side—Israel, which is historic in and of itself.  The authors of the plan knew the Palestinians wouldn't agree.  This is beyond negotiations—it's actually being implemented.  And amazingly, despite it superficially conceding to most of Israel's demands, it seems to have some level of support in the Arab world:


While I agree with Amir on many things, I have to respectfully disagree with his open defense of the plan.  If the goal was merely Israeli annexation, they should have already done it.  With Trump in the White House they already had an opening.  Amir defends the plan because this somehow doesn't divide the land, but in fact, that's exactly what it does.  An "undivided" Jerusalem is semantics.  A future Palestine will get the eastern/northeastern neighborhoods, and most of Judea and Samaria will become separated from Israel in perpetuity (that is, until God intervenes).  I'll have to pose the question to those evangelicals supporting this: according to Numbers 34:1–12, is it true or not true that the areas of Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip belong to the Israelites?  What does God say on the matter?

This deal is Israel's own permanent rejection of God's covenant with them because her leaders fear man more than God.  I would encourage Netanyahu and Gantz, who both flew off to their political "lover," to read what the Prophet Hosea says on the matter (Hos. 2:7–17).  The Tribulation is a period of time designed to finally restore Israel's faith in God.  They need to look to Him alone.


6. The peace plan formalizes Israel's control of the Old City and hints that allowing open prayer on the Temple Mount itself will be allowed for Jews and Christians.  While this doesn't begin construction of a Third Temple, it does change the status quo and pave the way for what will inevitably come during the Time of Jacob's Trouble.




7. There may be a big surprise this weekend with the deal.  Abbas rejected the deal right away and has called for an emergency conference of the Arab League in Cairo.  This meeting is now scheduled for Saturday, the day before Israel's original annexation vote.  Now, while most of the world is anticipating near-unanimous rejection of the plan by the Arab nations attending this conference, what if, just what if, the big countries that pull the strings (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., etc) actually acquiesce and pressure Abbas to agree?  There would then be cries of "peace and security" all around the world...




8. A major earthquake shook the United States just one hour after the reveal.  You can't make this up.  A 7.7 magnitude quake hit the Caribbean, so powerful it shook southern Florida, including Palm Beach in which is Donald Trump's family estate of Mar-a-Lago.  And this happened at 1:10 PM Eastern Time, just one hour after Trump and Netanyahu finished their reveal at noon.  It was the most powerful earthquake so far in 2020.  In fact, it was the most powerful earthquake anywhere in the world since May of last year, and the second most powerful in the world since September 2018.  God is sovereign over everything, including "natural" phenomena.  In my view, this 7.7 was God's unequivocal response.  Why 7.7?  I think God is pointing us back to His word:

So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
- Genesis 7:7


Thus says the Lord God: It shall not stand, Nor shall it come to pass.
- Isaiah 7:7 (immediate context is nations messing with Judah; cf. Isa. 28:15-18)


Then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.
- Jeremiah 7:7


And Joshua said, "Alas, Lord God, why have You brought this people over the Jordan at all—to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us?  Oh, that we had been content, and dwelt on the other side of the Jordan!"
- Joshua 7:7


Doom has come to you, you who dwell in the land;
The time has come,
A day of trouble is near,
And not of rejoicing in the mountains.
- Ezekiel 7:7


After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast [Rome, but ultimately, the Antichrist kingdom], dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet.  It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
- Daniel 7:7 (cf. Rev. 13:1–2; 17:12)


They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: [there is] none among them that calleth unto me.
- Hosea 7:7


So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
- Psalm 7:7


Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
- Micah 7:7


[Should ye] not [hear] the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when [men] inhabited the south and the plain?
- Zechariah 7:7


"And the nation to whom they will be in bondage I will judge," said God, "and after that they shall come out and serve Me in this place."
- Acts 7:7


Dear friends, prophecy is promise.  That's all it is.  Divine promise.  It's our Heavenly Father telling His children to pay attention and telling the enemies of His children that the consequences for their actions are very, very real.  Though Bible prophecy is held in low regard today, make no mistake, though the world mocks, God will assuredly keep His promises.  Believe the good news and get on board the Ark while there are still a few fleeting moments left.

  1. I understand what you are saying, however, Is this a carrot offered which everyone knows the PA will never be able to accomplish. 3 years of peace in order to qualify for division. Once the 4 years has elapsed then the carrot disappears. On the surface and from man's standpoint it may appear to restore land to Israel and give them a buffer of protection, while in actuality denying the PA anything unconditionally. Their continued non-compliance is the agreement. Now, the real question is not - How do we see it? The real question is What does God see? Blessings

  2. I find it interesting that Israel's true government didn't start until the first couple months of 1949.

    In addition to this, the Blood Moon Tetrads of that time began in 1949, not 1948.

    If we start from then, say January or February of 1949, and go through all the full and completed year of 2019 and beginning of 2020, you get an exact, full, and complete 70 years inclusively.

    That "generation" thing makes more sense here in the timing of this and the convergence of everything else going on right now.

    Could it be we should be seeing the rebirth of Israel as God sees it?

    Starting with the 1949 Terads and the real duly elected government of Israel, instead of the starting date of the interim (temporary government?

    2. January 1949 to January 2019 is only 69 years unless you include the full compliment of 2019 as part of the counting. This requires you going through to January of 2020 to make it 70 years.

  3. Well said, Gary, well said.

    The watermark dates and symbolic day counts of God are all over these days not to mention birth pains. Construction of the third temple is the next event I am looking to. This will be a key indicator of where we are prophetically as the two witnesses and the AC are closely tied to its completion.

    Lately I have noticed a shadow of the four horsemen. Not that the seals are being opened, not at all, but that what seems almost like a foreshadowing of them is on display. Further warnings to what I suspect many people today believe is yet to come.

    Watching and waiting. Teaching and preaching. Encouraging and gathering in a fellowship of the saints.

    Glory to God in the highest,

    1. He's not going to be removed, all it's a sham coup that is their desperate last attempt to regain control since they know they can't win the 2020 election through any fair means.

      Trump was destined for this role as is evident by the numerical miracles all over him and important dates.

      Israel's 70th anniversary will come exactly 700 days after Donald Trump's 70th birthday

      Elected on 7th of Cheshvan, modern Hebrew year of 5777

      He was sworn into office when he was 7 decades, 7 months & 7 days old (777)

      Exactly 7 months after first full day in office was Eclipse (Jan 21 – Aug 21)

      7th president from NY

      Won by 77 electoral votes (304 – 227), also [304 = 7]

      He was elected on Prime Minister Netanyahu's 7th year, 7th month and 7th full day in office

      Trump & Putin meet in person for first time on 7/7/17

      9/23/17 is 77 days after 7/7, when Trump met Putin for the first time

      Putin is exactly 777 months old on day of meeting

      7/7/17 this year was 5777 days after 9/11, and we're currently in the Jewish year 5777.

      777 days into his Presidency happens to land on a day that is expressed as “three seven”. (3/7)

      On Donald Trump's 700th day in office (December 20, 2018), his defense secretary Jim Mattis resigned on the day that Israel turned 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old

    2. Agreed, it is very unlikely he will be removed. In fact, he will probably be acquitted with some democrats in the majority.

    3. I think the Annexation vote has been cancelled for Sunday. Israel: No vote on applying sovereignty to West Bank areas on Sunday, minister says.

      Quoting, i24news.tv,

      "In his [Transport Minister Yariv Levin's] interview for Army Radio early on Wednesday, he explained that there was still some preparatory work to be done to set the stage for the move.

      He added that the attorney general was yet to rule on whether a caretaker government and a parliament that technically ended its current session in December, as no candidate managed to form a government, can go for this move."

    4. @Pastor Rich:

      When the annexation vote has been cancelled for Sunday, when will then the annexation vote be done?

      Delete
    5. When will the annexation vote take place?

      I believe that is for the Attorney General of Israel to establish. With the Knesset being dissolved and a caretaker Prime Minister in office they have some new legal territory to traverse.

      The third and next election falls on day 42 (six weeks) after announcement of "The Vision".

  10. More Kobe stuff...

    Kobe crashed on the day when JOHN Bolton's REVELATION (about Trump and the Ukraine) came out which is all the media can focus on right now. JOHN'S REVELATION. Kobe played for the Lakers in the city of Angels (lake of fire prepared for the devil and his angels), and his plane caught fire after he (the Mamba/snake/dragon) fell from the sky. What's more, Kobe partly grew up in Italy and was a Catholic and spoke Italian, and it looks like Rome and Pope Francis are the spiritual center of Mystery Babylon/the False Prophet.

  12. I have been looking at February 2 as an interesting date for weeks now. It's the 40th day after Christmas which is why some Christians celebrate that day as the Feast of the Presentation when the baby Jesus was taken to the temple. Two people, Simeon and Anna, greeted him. What Luke chapter 2 says about Simeon is especially interesting:

    25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

    26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

    If the Revelation 12 sign is symbolic of our rapture and has parallels with Christ's first advent, then his presentation at the temple could be parallel to our presentation at God's throne.

    February 2 is also 862 days after the Revelation 12 sign. Strong's Greek for 862 is "imperishable" and is found in 1 Corinthians 15:52 (interestingly, 40 days prior on Christmas Day it was 823 days after Rev 12 sign and Strong's Greek for 823 is "moment" another word found in 1 Corinthians 15:52)

    There are conflicting reports on whether the annexation vote will be on February 2 or later that week, but these are interesting times and I plan to be on high alert this weekend (and beyond if we are still here).

    4. Looking at yesterdays quake between Montego Bay and Cayman Islands/The Bluff I got wondering is there was any connection to Florida? The quake was felt there too.

      A random thought...Florida is the 27th state in the union and home to the Mar-a-Lago Club.

      Now official state of residence of President Donald Trump.

      One more set of sevens for the record book? A sign perhaps?

      [insert shrug of shoulders]

      Speaking of books, 27 is the number of books in the New Testament.

      The announcement of "The Vision" occurred on day 858 after R12S. That value reminded me of (John 8:58 ESV),

      58 Jesus said to them,

      "Truly, truly, I say to you,
      before Abraham was, I am."


      Just for *fun* let's see what (Psalm 85:8 ESV) has to say,

      8 Let me hear what God the
      LORD will speak, for he will
      speak peace to his people,
      to his saints; but let them
      not turn back to folly.


      I'll stop there and leave Strong's numbers and concordances up to anyone who wants to look.

    5. Pastor Rich, did you see the Chiefs outfits they wore for the Superbowl opening night. I think it was on Monday. They wore all white. It really was jarring. My mind went directly to the white robes given to the saints in heaven. Also the name "Chiefs" makes me think of us raining with Christ as kings and priests. I keep thinking something is going to happen on Sunday. Not sure what but just a nagging feeling. Might just be my imagination, but we will see.

      Delete
    6. Hi Micah,

      As a matter of fact I had NOT seen the Chief's jersey. I was wondering what they would do given both teams wear red?

      A quick check found this,

      Super Bowl jerseys 2020: What uniforms will 49ers, Chiefs wear during Super Bowl 54?

      Quoting, MSN,

      "The Chiefs will wear red jerseys and white pants in the Super Bowl. Sunday's game marks the first time in the history of the Super Bowl that the game will feature two teams with red as their primary color."

      "San Francisco announced it will be rolling out its white uniforms in the Super Bowl. These jerseys include a white top and gold pants."

      So looks like both teams will have a component of white in their kit.

      Will something happen on Sunday? We're holding a tailgate fellowship after church this weekend. Beyond that I have come to expect birth pains and another step closer to the Day.

    What is going to happen when the Israeli military actually move into these areas after the official annexation. A conflict could easily escalate from that, we will probably find out soon.

  14. I have tried to warn them. I have emailed Knesset members, rabbis, synagogues and journalists in Israel to tell them that they can't divide the land unless they want disasters to happen. But they haven't listened. To listen would mean they'd have to accept that Jesus was their messiah.

  15. Hello Bruce, Feb 2, so-called Feast of Presentation is not officially recognized by Christians, and it's not one of the 7 Feasts the Lord gave to Israel. Besides, this, Dec 25th is a pagan holiday, - for the Sun God, which the Catholic church tried to take and make it Christian. Sorry, brother, but you can be sure that Christ is not coming back on a pagan holiday.
    What's more, the Spring feasts are all inseparably linked to Christ's first Advent, and then there was a huge gap. Those feasts were fulfilled already by Christ in perfect order and perfect precision.
    The Fall Feasts are inseparably linked with Christ's second advent. The next one in the sequence that has not been fulfilled is Feast of Trumpets. ;-)

    1. RedRanger7,

      December 25th is the day that Biblical researchers like Barry Setterfield and Rick Larson and myself feel that the Magoi (Great Ones) from the east arrived in Bethlehem and effectively marked the first Christmas.

      Here is part II on the topic from Barry Setterfield which I found very interesting,

      The Christmas Star PART 2: The Star and Astronomy - Barry Setterfield


      I have to agree with you on looking toward the fall feasts. Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets/Days of Shouting) this year is well aligned to meet scriptural day counts across three calendar systems for 1,290/1,260, 2,550 and the 1,335-days.

      One item to note about the morning of 12/25/2 BC -- not only did the star (Jupiter) come to a stop over Bethlehem in the constellation Virgo, the Southern Cross (Crux) was fully visible above the horizon in the pre-dawn morning sky. Added to that Venus had risen before the sun in the constellation Ophiuchus in opposition with Mars (named for the Roman god of war -- Greek name Ares) which was in conjunction with Antares (means, "Like Mars") in the constellation Scorpius.

      IF this was the day that the Magoi came bearing gifts to the Lord then it would be that night that Joseph took the family and fled to Egypt and the night that Herod (the dragon) devoured (murdered) the male children of Bethlehem.

      If anything, this is a potential parallel to Christ's coming to this place. He came on the Feast of Trumpets, what we call today Rosh Hashannah, and escaped into Egypt over what would become the Gentile New Year.

      Interesting possibilities.

    2. RedRanger, there's much that I could say in response that could easily lead us off into tangents, but I think it might be worthwhile to note a few points. December 25 became a pagan holiday a century or two after Jesus was born, and the evidence is mixed as to whether that pagan festival predated the church's choosing that date to celebrate Christ's birth. December 25 has been unfairly characterized as pagan by too many Christians for too long and there's a good case to be made that the date was chosen as a good faith effort by the church to determine Jesus actual birthday. Records found in 70AD at the fall of the temple show Zechariah's temple group likely would have been performing duties around the fall Jewish holidays. Elizabeth's pregnancy with John therefore would have started around that time. Six months later, around March/April is when Mary would then have learned that she would conceive Jesus. Add nine months and you get to December/January. It's possible the records were corrupted and Zechariah's temple service wasn't in September/October, but that supports a December/January birthday for Jesus. It doesn't really matter anyway. The church has celebrated that date for centuries along with the Feast of the Presentation 40 days later on February 2. The observance of these events is more important than whether or not the dates are exactly correct. (As an interesting aside, the Orthodox church celebrates the conception of John the Baptist on September 23. Where have we seen that date before?)

      I also don't think we should say that Jesus definitely won't come for his church on a certain day. We can no more say that than that we can say he definitely will come on a certain day.

      As for the rapture happening on a Jewish feast day, it's certainly possible, but the Church is not Israel and Israel is not the Church. There's some logic to Jesus taking the Church on one of the Church's feast days. Just my two cents.

    3. The rapture is linked to spring/early summer, wheat harvest/budding grapes in Song ch 2 (KJV), not fall. Great teachers like Missler & Ruckman favored Pentecost, Paul Dawson makes a strong case for Passover. The last 3 feasts are clearly linked to 2nd Advent, but not necessarily the rapture.

      Delete
    4. ...and I used to be in the camp that felt Pentecost as the time of the coming RR because of some of these teachers. Right up to the Feast of Weeks after the R12S as a matter of fact. My shift has come as a product of personal prayer and study. (Not saying that they are wrong and I am right -- just that this where I once was and where I am today by my studies).

      Delete
    5. I don't remember where I read it, but I saw somewhere that the three fall feasts are often associated with the beginning of the year. They might have been fulfilled in Jesus' conception, birth, circumcision and flight to Egypt... each has parallels to the feasts?

      Conception/Birth : Trumpets, announcing the arrival of the King
      Atonement : Circumcision, where He became one with His people, the Jews (Aka, the Circumcision, since this was one of the signs of their covenant with God)
      Tabernacles : Where Jesus will be with us for a period of '8'? Could this refer to the 8th 1000 after the millenium when it's assumed things will start over again?

      A HUGE AMEN to that.

      I've never bought into the argument that Christians shouldn't celebrate Christmas or Halloween. Those are CHRISTIAN holidays, not pagan, and how dare we cede any day of the year to the devil. God owns December 25th, just as He owns every day. Those that say that Halloween or Christmas are "pagan" days or days that belong to the devil are simply mistaken. The devil doesn't get a day. As believers, we are not to hold up in a cave, but confront the enemy anytime he appears. We storm the gates of hell in the Name of Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit. We walk as Jesus walked, and Jesus wasn't a monk. He was on MISSION.

  16. Gary, the article was a very good overview. What takes a way from this greatly, is the manipulation of the numbers of years to make them into some rare impossible case. 77 years, 77 months( which is 6 years and 5 months) 77 weeks (-which is 1 year and 6 month). So really it's 85 years and two months.

    This not only undermines your credibility, but also makes Christians - look like superstitious fools.

    I've noticed you don't seem to use the phrase "Occupied Territories" used by the left and Arab groups as propaganda, to refer to Israel's land given to the Jewish people by God.
    So why do you keep on using the anti-Semitic and propaganda term 'palestinian' which was created by Yasar Arafat to create a false victim group.

    Every time you use this, you are reinforcing the lies of the Jordanian Arabs, who hate Israel and her people, and you also strengthen the idea in the minds of uninformed Christians. You should know better, sir.

    There is no Leprechaun/palestinian language, no Leprechaun/palestinian culture, no Leprechaun /palestinian currency, no Leprechaun/palestinian passport, no Leprechaun historical artifacts, no Leprechaun/palestinian national race, art forms, national food, and no Leprechaun/palestinian geographical or historical country with borders.
    They are 95% Jordanian Arabs, who speak Jordanian, and have Jordanian passports, and are ethnically Jordanian.

    I get that you like to pull in numbers that have Biblical significance, but it really undermines the impact and credibility of the articles when you do this- Particularly like in this article. Just put 85 years and two months without embellishing.

      Was Gabriel manipulating when he told Daniel that 70 '7s' remain to atone for sin and seal up prophecy? Why didn't he just say 490? I agree with Gabriel: 70 '7s' sounds way more "divine" (:

      Creation is filled with patterns and numbers that reflect the orderly nature of God.

  22. ARE WE SUPERSTITIOUS FOOLS?

    A bit of a reach. What is a bit of a reach?

    Let's see, we believe, teach and preach that...

    A talking snake enticed a woman surgically created from a man made from dirt by an invisible God to eat from a tree that will cause the curse of all creation and the subsequent downfall and spiritual death of all mankind! Not to mention her increase in birth pains or man's toil to work the ground for food! Then to fix all of this mess God comes in human form via a virgin birth to a girl who is descended from the royal line of a shepherd boy who killed a giant with a stone from his sling! That this saviour is both man and God in the flesh and is willingly put to death and rises to life three days later to pay the price for mankind's sin against the invisible God! Then to top that off he goes home to heaven in the sight of witnesses and promises to come back but not before taking all of his people both living and dead back to heaven before all hell breaks loose on earth?

    WHAT?!!

    There was a day when I considered that total nonsense and nothing more than mythology!

    A bit of a reach?

    How many times do we see "a bit of a reach" in Scripture?

    How about (Matthew 17:27 ESV) as but one example? How many times do we see a bit of a reach in the Bible?

    Plenty.

    Yet we declare it from the depths of our heart and soul as truth. Literal truth.

    May we back up that truth with the Word of our testimony and evidence(s) that glorify God by pointing others to Christ in love and humility asking for and receiving forgiveness from God and one another as we go because we all sin and fall short of the glory of God.

    Are we required to understand everything God does? Has done or will do? Absolutely not. Is it likely that 99.999% and more of His moving in this world will blow by us without notice?

    I'd say so.

    The truth is that GOD CAN and GOD WILL when it comes to the glory of His Name.

    No reach there. Just common sense.

    2. PR,
      Touch typing on an ipad I cant expound this much but it is very interesting. Looking to the witness of the stars and the signs in them, while we have Betelgeuse dimming and possibly going supernova (read Beetlejuice, which is a sign unto us as well, as the movie Satanic as it was,, I never saw it- was released the day after 03/29/88, symbolizing the day after the rapture or missing the rapture, just look at its cover and the symbolism there. I see a symbol of the antichrist in the middle, with a bride on one side and a beheaded man on the other- couldnt be more poignant or prophetic concerning that Great Day or Jacobs Trouble. Betelgeuse would be dimming and going possibly supernova at this very time! Fascinating. Also it was released 1 17 17 days prior to tomorrows Bride Exit, or 32years 29 days.. , AND 29 years 8 months and 3 weeks to the Rev 12 sign 17, which is 8 rescued in the middle of 293. Check that out!).

      But what I wanted to say was the discovery this month of a new supernovae on the 12th. It is in Virgo, at Gamma Virginis in the galaxy NGC 4636. Strongs search is "tent, or bodily tabernacle" in 2 Cor, in context with our putting it off and putting on the immortal! That is the Greek search, the Hebrew is "Naked ones". Wow, putting off the earthly tent as clothes... and Hmmm, virgins, those in Christ putting on immortality, transformed, those other five under the law being found naked and without transformation. Just a thought.

      Blessed in Christ Jesus brother- keep watching up!

      The first Brexit warning was 03/29 depicting the bride rapture, the next was Halloween, depicting the judgement to fall, this one may be the real brexit, on 1/31.

      Strongs 131H is Jericho. As Daniel V has written about in Revelations Spiral of Time, the repeating pattern we expect could form a set of 7 sevens in the trib, or 49 years, a full jubilee, to "wear out the saints" who expect only seven. When time repeats. It would seem to coincide with the 49ers etc and the 50 year Chiefs. It would also just so happen to be Groundhog Day, which may be a picture of the reality of the tribulation, and death escaping men. Reliving the same day over and over again. Our Commander in Chief has also recently retweeted a clip of Groundhog Day. .. and Bill Murray has a Groundhog Day SB commercial in the works and is expected to make a return.

      Very exciting and very clear signs.

      Let us look up and be ready! Did not all of Christs miracles have a human response component to them? Stretch forth your hand... rise up and walk... fill the water pots (whatever He says to you, do it!)? Shouldn't we then therefore expect His last and possibly greatest miracle after His death and resurrection to have a simple faith request that its fulfillment, its miracle, would hinge upon? His first miracle did. "Jesus said unto them, Fill the waterpots with water". .....and they did. And then a miracle happened. "What I say unto you I say unto you all, Watch!" And we shall see a miracle happen.

      No stretch forth hand- no healing, no rise up- no walk, no fill the waterpots- no wine. No Watch-

      ... no go.

      Let us all just do what our Saviour has strongly commanded then, and watch, expecting a miracle that will stretch across time, from when He uttered those words 2000 years ago, to its fulfilment now, that obeying them now literally and stretching forth our faith hand in response to His command long ago would save us in this time and place from certain death and horror and the coming apocalypse. Hallelujah! Amen?

      Soon oh saints... soon. Eyes on the skies brethren?

      Eyes on Jesus.

    3. Skywatcher Matthew,

      Pleased to meet you! I'm right there with you regarding touch typing on iPad. Not for me. I reserve my writing to a good old fashioned desktop computer running the latest LTS release of Ubuntu. (I don't do Windows).

      Yes, I am aware of the *soon* demise of Betelgeuse and yes I remember the film circa 1980-something. It was weird then as it is weird now. I haven't seen it in a lifetime and thinking back to the last time I did see it? There is no desire to see it again.

      CNN ran a story recently that got my attention,

      There will be a new brightest star in the sky, when it explodes in about 60 years

      The reason being that if we are as close to the RR as we believe, and I believe we are -- then this binary system super nova event may usher in and mark the end of the first Jubilee of the Millennial Kingdom.

      It strikes me as being possible.

      Quoting, CNN,

      "V Sagittae, also known as V Sge, is a star system that includes a regular star in orbit with a white dwarf star. That's known as a Cataclysmic Variable, or CV. The normal star is losing its mass to the white dwarf, and it's 3.9 times more massive than the white dwarf."

    6. True. Not everything is Biblical or prophetic. Then again it could be.

      What if we approach the question with an open mind. A heart hungry for the Lord and His Word. What if asking questions and exploring where they take us is an avenue for facilitating greater learning? What if the questions we ask take us places we would not otherwise go? I say virtually anything that gets you into your Bible and reading it prayerfully and/or in meditation is a good thing.

      If asking questions lead us places that expand our love for and knowledge of God's Word, then I wholly recommend it. Learning to use your Bible and a concordance are good and proper skills on the path to Christ-like maturity.

      Not being afraid to ask questions, AND TO BE WRONG, aren't bad things.

      Besides, what's more nonsensical? Looking for God's watermarks in our daily lives or believing things like (Matthew 17:27 ESV)?

      Neither.

      It's all about faith, hope and love.

    7. Anonymous --

      God often uses prosaic events to evidence, or to point the way to, spiritual understandings or clues. There are no coincidences, only lazy people.

      He also often will use the 'low', base, or common things of the world to communicate with us. Those who are open to His communications, that is. Those who don't already know it all.

      Speaking of current events --

      "For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth." (Zechariah 4)

      Yesterday a tiny happening in a small Utah town made big news- to draw our attention. I always think that, why a small news bit makes it as front page stuff. Theres often a reason that our Lord wants to draw attention to something. (Whats it therefore?) Should cause us to ask that. Well it seems that a driver in WEST JORDAN, Utah hit a street SIGN sending it crashing into a WINDOW of a police car going the opposite direction. Small news like this should catch our attention as to why our Heavenly Father brings it up to us at all. Hmmm, local sources tell us it happened the 28th, it happened literally hours after Trump officially recognises the borders of Israel to extend over all the land west of the Jordan river, granting sovereignty to Israel over the areas soon to be annexed (hopefully) and the full support of the US to do so. Wow! WEST JORDAN, a. SIGN? and a WINDOW nearly crashed open! But I digress...

    Just two things Mr. Rich that I cant abide.

    1. As ive said before, God didnot come to earth and die on the cross and then raise himself from the dead. That is nonsensical and absolutely a reach in my opinion.
    God sent his Son to die for us, two totally separate identities. If Adam had not sinned, Jesus would not have had to come. Jesus was Gods plan B.
    Jesus is called 'the second Adam' in 1 Cor. 15.

    2. Mary didnot come from the bloodline of the Patriarch David it was Joseph. The lineage is laid out in the opening chapters of Matthew.

    1. Hey there 207,

      David's line was cursed to never rise to the throne of David again. Mary was of the line of David too. You have to compare the lines given by Matthew and Luke to see it. Great finds there to be had too! (More counts)

      Jesus asks, "Who do you say I am?" I, meaning me being myself, I say Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. I get it if you don't get that 207 but that's between you and God. I'm sticking to it and taking it to the throne.

      I would give you scriptural references and details but have to go on a grocery run.

    2. It makes no sense for God to have a plan B. He had one plan. He knew/knows everything. When Adam and Eve sinned he was not like "oh crap what do I do now!?". He knew they were going to sin before He created anything. This was His plan the entire time. Why He chose to do everything the way he did is outside our understanding.

      It is clearly stated in scripture that Jesus is God as others have given you reference too. As well as Jesus lineage to David coming from Mary's side as well.

      Delete
    3. No plan B. God knew what would happen. And Jesus' claims to be God are manifold. Despite what The Watchtower says, no serious scholarship refutes NT clearly claiming that Jesus is God.

      You can certainly believe that the claims in the NT are false, but to claim the NT's authors didn't preach a divine Jesus will not pass any muster.

  25. 207 - How about this one:
    From Grace thru Faith
    "Sometime in the past Jesus was given a separate identity as God’s son. In Psalm 2:7 God said “You are my son. Today I have become your Father.” In His role as the Son, He has always remained subordinate to the Father (John 5:19).

    He has been given the task of redeeming the Creation and restoring it to the condition it was in before Adam lost it (Romans 8:19-21). This includes all of Adam’s descendants who choose to be redeemed. When He’s finished, He will present everything to the Father, His task accomplished. Though the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one, they are also three, and as such often perform their work independently. When they do, the Father is always shown to be in the superior position."

    God took on human form to come to earth as HIS son, Jesus.

    Here's MORE:
    God presents Himself to us in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These are titles more than physical realities. When God wanted to appear to us in human form He did so in the person of His Son. When a perfect man was needed to serve as the sacrifice for the sin of mankind, none could be found. And so the Son agreed to put aside His godly powers, come to earth to be born as a man, and serve as our sacrifice. During the time Jesus was on earth He related to His Father as a separate entity, showing us how we should relate to the Father. This is why He prayed to Him.

    Jesus is not “as God” but is God in human form as these verses from a previous Q&A clearly confirm:

    First of all, John 1:1, Paul (Col 1:15), and the writer of Hebrews (Hebr. 1:3) all say that Jesus is God. Jesus claimed to be God, (John 10:30) telling the disciples that having seen Him, they had seen the Father (John 14:9). Even God called Jesus God in Psalm 45:6 which is repeated in Hebr. 1:8. (from Denying Jesus is God)

    1. It also follows the idea of an 'Avatar' as we have in many computer games. You, as an outside entity act within the game's rules through a token, pawn, or character. When people play games, they often refer to their avatar as themselves. 'I just died. I jumped over the obstacle. I saved the princess.' It doesn't even need to be taught, as even young children understand the concept. What is far more difficult is to disassociate from the avatar you are controlling.

      Jesus is God 'logging in' to the world He made to set things right. He followed all the rules He had made, He has the 'admin access' to do many things we normally can't. (But can happen if we ask the 'Admin' and He decides to do it.) Create things from nothing? Almost 10k people from the time testified He made them food from the example of a few fish and loaves of bread. Change one thing into another? Water into wine. Cure disease and death? Lazarus, the young man being taken to burial, and the young girl. Countless blind, deaf, lepers... and His immediate followers could do some of the same. Today, we've figured out how to do some of the same things via technology.

      As Jesus said, If you don't believe Me, at least believe My works... that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father. If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father!

      This is one of several modern metaphors that can be used to understand what is probably completely impossible to understand... How the Great Original Designer (GOD) was manifest in the flesh. Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. Someday, and hopefully soon, He will return, and we will find out what this reality truly is.... and what will come next...

  28. Religion says look at yourself. Grace says look at the Lord Jesus Christ. Religion says look at your works. Grace says look at the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins. Religion says you must give God your life. Grace says God gave you his life, just receive. Religion says you must love God. Grace says God loves you. Religion says God comes and goes based upon your behavior. Grace says once saved I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Religion says sin can remove you from salvation. Grace says once saved you are a purchased possession sealed by the Holy Spirit of God. Religion is dead and can not give life. Grace is the Lord Jesus Christ and all he gives is life! <3 Salvation is not an earned reward but a free gift from God <3 we do not deserve Ephesians 2:8-9 1 Corinthians 15:1-4;1:18, KJV <3 ✝<3 It's not what we do, but what Christ has done for us that saves us. If you’re trusting in anything other than the finished work of Christ then you’re trusting in yourself instead of trusting in Christ alone. Salvation is not based on what we're doing for God, but what God has done for us. Our performance doesn't merit salvation. No amount of works can contribute to salvation. Satan tricks people into thinking that they're saved based on their behavior, the problem then becomes is that people trust in their ability to save themselves or keep themselves saved. No one can keep themselves saved, only Jesus does. Many people want to play a part in their salvation by trying to do their best, when in reality, our best could never be good enough. It comes down to this, either you trust in Christ's finished work, that He died to pay for your sins by shedding His blood was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures for your justification or you trust what you’re doing. What Christ did was enough. IT IS FINISHED the question is. Will you receive it? Believe the gospel ALONE. Romans 4:5King James Version (KJV) "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Titus 3:5King James Version (KJV) "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" Ephesians 2:8-9King James Version (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Galatians 2:16King James Version (KJV) "Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified." 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 King James Version (KJV) 3 "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" 1 Corinthians 1:18 King James Version (KJV) "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

  30. It appears possible from the reaction of Iran & others that, if anything, the "deal of the century" may be the catalyst leading to a mideast war whereby eventually the antichrist comes "in peace" to assert his evil plan with covenant in hand. The translation below re "confirm" begs questions weather there is indeed a pre-existing covenant contemplated by Daniel 9:27 as so many believe. Some even discuss the "deal of the century" as significant in context with Daniel 9:27 which strikes me as improbable for these reasons:

    And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (make a firm covenant, ASV). The language higbir from gabar, "be strong") does not signify confirmation of a covenant but causation of a firm covenant. "He shall enter into a strong & firm covenant" is the wording of the Amplified Bible translation.

    In the alternative a pre-existing covenant may be that which has nothing to do with any covenant by men with Israel. After all is not he antichrist the great deceiver of Israel, the pretender who knows all too well Israel's understanding of the only covenant given to Israel of monumental import:

    What is the covenant?
    Genesis 15:18 – “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:”
    The covenant is the Abrahamic Covenant
    The covenant describes the promise of the Promised Land by God to Abraham
    What is the “confirmation” of the covenant?
    The peace agreement will confirm the Israel’s right to exist in the holy land by signing the peace agreement
    The Antichrist will confirm the Abrahamic covenant with many for a seven-year period
    The Temple Mount should be placed under a sharing arrangement
    When this happens, the final seven years to Armageddon will begin

    Finally, considering the breathtaking unraveling of this country's sane functioning (televised senate all week) taking place simultaneously in an apostate world hostile to Israel & the Messiah, it seems to me NO covenant made by blundering men could ever be the subject of the Word as given to Daniel regarding a Covenant!

  31. This Deal of the Century will be negotiated during the next months. Will these negotiations fail, after which a big war erupts in the Middle-East? Or that these negotiations will be successful indeed and that the antichrist, as a diplomat from Europe, will confirm this plan with the rebuilding of the Temple as an extra? You will never know which European diplomats are involved within these negotiations

  32. Very good information here. The Gematria of the numbers is very telling. The Rapture, through my studies... Passover 2020 or before. Purim 2020 is an observance that encompasses 3 Days...worth considering. No man knows the hour or day, but we are Very, Very Close. Thank you for the Great Study you've SHARED. SHALOM

      Your right there isn't it's politics....that's a daily global occurrence. But it certainly seems like there is according to this site...eh who knows only God and that's who I trust and his word. not global and national happenings it doesn't do anything to edify my spirit so why get tangled up in trying to guesstimate the rapture. ? In the end when the time comes we're all on the same team and we'll know all the answers from God himself.

  34. other dates to keep an eye on;
    - this year marks the 153rd year from 1867 which was hugely prophetic (being a jubilee year);
    - Mark Twain in 1867 arrived in Jerusalem 23 September (I kid you not) and people are generally aware of his prophetic declaration of Deuteronomy 29 (Jonathan Khan notes this in detail)
    - Charles Warren arrived in Jerusalem February 1867 (I can't find any reference to the exact day of arrival) to begin surveying the old city of David. We know that the returning back of land to Israel during Jubilee required surveying to ensure accuracy of land perimeters which was to be returned (again - read up on his amazing findings of the old Jerusalem later in 1867 including the possible location of the temple).
    - The Ottoman land code of 1867 was issued 10 June 1867 which allowed foreigners (barr Jews) to purchase 'Palestine' land for the first time in goodness how long. 100 years (minus 3 days) later, Israel regained Jerusalem.

    153 we know can mean 'fullness', so something to keep an eye out for!

  35. UPDATE ON "THE VISION"

    Kushner: We hope Israel will wait until after election to annex settlements

    Quoting, i24news.tv,

    "When Kushner was asked whether the Trump administration would support an immediate annexation measure, Kushner replied 'no, we've agreed with them on forming a technical team to start studying the maps.'"

  36. Thank you Gary.

    Looks like a gambit to force the 'Palestinians' to the table. It also kicks the Palestinian can down the road. Makes sense from secular p.o.v. due to the assumption that safety and peace can be arranged by men. Such a Deal!

    Israel is rich in resources, divided politically, small geographically, surrounded by enemies, and lost spiritually. They're already tired of permanent bunker-mentality.

    The prince of Persia has always been Israel's enemy. Not new. The sevens connected to Iran make sense, because seven is an important number in the esoteric/occult schemas that undergird the policies and politics of the nations, which are directed ultimately by territorial angels.

    The 7.7 quake, as you note, was a clear response to the, ah, Vision. Tee hee. Jared must be watching Oprah. Ever been in a fight, Jared? That's when you get hit, too.

    It appears that the State of Israel seeks to divide the land because they don't trust God to defend them. Because they don't really know Him. If someone wants to show me how the intent of Israel's heart is not to divide the land, please do. I am open to correction with evidence.

  38. His Majesty King Abdulla reaffirmed Jordan's steadfast position on the Palestinian cause, and the importance of ending the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state solution, guaranteeing the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital; noting the key role of the EU in this regard.

  39. The timing for peace has to be close enough so it can happen by Pentecost, because the new offering of the Messiah, the completion of Gods work, to the Jews (which went to the Church) happens on Pentecost. Thus, the resumption of the Abraham covenant, which has been held in limbo these many years, cannot begin again until the Messiah completes His covenant with the Church on Ascension Day, opening the way for His return, with them, to end the time of trouble and usher in the Reign of Christ on Earth.

  40. In the study of Daniel we learn that the Mideast was the location of the final action and the events leading up to peace with temple mount rights was the key.

  41. And, when Jesus returns to earth to take command of His Kingdom, we will be with Him as part of the cadre, as He fulfills the feast of Tabernacles, not for us, but for the Jews!
