Bibi Is Back As The Blood Moon Rises

The dust is settling on Israel's historic fifth election in a span of just four years and it appears Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu has handily clinched the election. 5, of course, is the number of grace. 4 is the open door. Revelation 4–5 is the prophetic inflection point where we witness the rapture through an open door and the glorified Church seated in Heaven immediately prior to the beginning of the Tribulation. The day after the election the U.S. stock market was sent into a tailspin following a 75-basis-point interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve and talk inflation will be much more difficult to tamp down than anticipated. The Bank of England followed suit. The global economy is now in the worst dire straits since the Great Depression. The main U.S. index fell 505.44 points, closing down 1.55 percent.


God seems to be highlighting grace and the open door in a big way right now. The open door and pre-trib promise were delivered to the church in Philadelphia (Rev. 3:8–10). The true Church, saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, has little strength but a Mighty Savior; when the wicked dragon stands ready to devour (Rev. 12:3–4), the Church goes up, but the rebel dragon and his rebellious stars come crashing down (Rev. 12:7–9). No wonder then that we're in the middle of the World Series featuring none other than the Philadelphia Phillies and the Houston Astros ("astro" comes from Latin and Greek aster—"star"). It's all tied up with three games to go.


The world seems to be undergoing some final decorations—a few final pieces being arranged in anticipation of the big day. The right players need to be in place and ready to move when the time comes. For starters, the Twitter deal finally closed and the world's richest man—creepily dawning the "Satan's Champion" costume for Halloween, featuring Baphomet and an upside-down cross—now owns the world's most politically influential social media platform.





Then on Sunday the Brazilian election saw Bolsonaro lose by a thin margin to Lula da Silva. Despite the loss, media talking heads in Brazil are witnessing the resurgence and staying power of the political right for the first time in decades. The 50-49 results have brought the country to an utter standstill as hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets, blocking roads, burning tires, and surrounding the military headquarters as cries of election fraud continue to mount.


Then Israel's election came on Tuesday, and barring anything unforeseen as the last couple percent of ballots are counted, Netanyahu's coalition looks set to control a sizeable 64 or 65-seat majority in the 120-seat Knesset. Most significantly, his coalition will be perhaps the most religious in Israel's history. In fact, his coalition partners are exclusively religious—Shas, United Torah Judaism, and the Religious Zionist Party, the latter of which has called for complete Israeli control of the Temple Mount and suggested the Temple could come about "at any time."


To put this in perspective: if you were looking for the exact coalition that you would need to have in place in order to rebuild the Temple and reinstitute the Mosaic system at the onset of the Tribulation, this is it. Of equal importance is that Netanyahu will be back at the helm and he, along with Trump and crew, were the architects of both the Deal of the Century and the Abraham Accords—the very agreements that may form the basis of the future confirmed covenant for seven years.


Still to come is next week's midterm election here in the United States where polls are showing what some political scientists have termed "a bloodbath." Republicans look set to retake the House and possibly even the Senate, which will likely set the stage for Trump's rapid return to the political scene (last Trump, anyone?).


Tuesday's election will also ominously feature the last total lunar eclipse (a.k.a., "blood moon") anywhere in the world until March of 2025. Most of North America, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific will witness the total phase of the historic eclipse. And lest I forget to mention: the total duration of the eclipse will be 5 hours and 54 minutes—grace, grace, and the open door.

  1. Gary, this is amazing! Keep up the good work as time is short!

    Also, I remember from your other post that at Rapture, it was mentioned that the living will be transformed and remain on Earth for awhile before flying to the clouds. I assumed that it is only a matter of few minutes before its time to go up there? Or we have to stay for couple of hours or days?

    1. I don't think there's any specific time indicated in the Bible, but from the imagery in Revelation (the dragon wants to "devour the child as soon as it is born", but the child gets "cought up"), it appears to me the time should be rather short. I'm not dogmatic about it at all, though. More importantly, for me the resurrection is a sort of "event horizon", I wouldn't worry about our fate beyond that, because that is the point where we receive immortal, incorruptible bodies, so whatever purpose God has laid out for us, we will be able to fulfill with absolute certainity and no fear. If He wills us to remain here for a little while and minister, why not?

  2. Regarding the Philadelphia Phillies, they are the first ever 6th seed in the World Series and Philadelphia is the 6th Church in Revelation.

    The Phillies franchise is "weak" in that it has more losses than any in history with over 11,000. But is steadfast and enduring in that they have been in the same city with the same name longer than any other team.

    1. Nice, Andy!

      Also, the Phillies' star player is named Harper (Harpazo!), and he wears number 3. In Game 3, he hit the 999th World Series home run!

      Delete
    2. Plus, the Philadelphia Phillies also have a pitcher on their team named Noah........."As in the days of Noah"

      Delete
    3. Also Harpers play Harps (as in Revelation) and Noah entered the season (with Angels) with 777 strikeouts (age of Noah's father who died 5 years before the flood). Many, many more prophetic patterns this year in baseball and in fact over the entire history of baseball which is a type of the Biblical story in many ways.

    4. Astros (relating to the stars) win 1st WS in 2017 shortly after Rev. 12 sign. Win 2nd WS five (grace) years later in 2022. 25 year old Jeremy (God will uplift) Pena whose 9/22 birthday correlates to Rev. 12 sign wins MVP.

  3. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL

    I have been waiting to spill the beans on my current study model until another article was posted and your notes Gary are just the right primer for what this model offers.

    Keep in mind that I am not dogmatic about this or any of my other models. They are study tools and part of my quiet time with the LORD. Dates are a byproduct of the model and not the purpose. The purpose of these models has always been to see if/how Scripture may line up with our temporal calendar(s). This model is especially interesting for reasons you may see as follows...

    Premise: That the 80 years given by Moses in (Psalm 90:10) is a literal 80 prophetic years that defines Israel as a nation (people). (As though the state of Israel were personified). All generations are made up of people and the generation that represents that longest lived generation is no exception. Given that generations are people; which people best represent Israel as a nation? If to think of a word the word (έθνος) "éthnos" or "nation" comes to mind. If Israel were embodied in human form who best speaks for Israel in the eyes of G-d?

    The two witnesses.

    This is the question and the premise of this latest series of models I have developed. This time the age of the generation is given as,

    360 prophetic days/year x 80 prophetic years = 28,800 prophetic days

    Thus counting 28,800 days from Friday, May 14, 1948 we come to Sunday, March 21, 2027. The next question is to which calendar should we look to for the appointed feasts? Using the civil calendar provided by Chabad.org and Hebcal.com I can share these findings,

    Fact: Sunday, March 21, 2027 is the eve of the Fast of Esther which itself is the eve of Purim. A significant holiday in Israel even among secular Jews. A time of celebration and gift-giving. The Spring Equinox 2027 in Northern Hemisphere will be at 4:24 PM (Eastern) on Saturday, March 20, 2027 so Sunday will be the first full day of Spring!

    Scripture: 10 "and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth." (Revelation 11:10 ESV)

    Note: As Gary noted above, it is through the church in Philadelphia that the "open-door pre-trib promise" is given but another promise is given too...

    Scripture: 10 "Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth." (Revelation 3:10 ESV)

    Emphasis, "those who dwell on the earth!"

    When does the hour of trial begin? We call that time of trouble the tribulation and it begins what we know as the 70th Week of Daniel. Is this the Rapture? No! This is the beginning of the last week to finish the transgression of Israel. The harpazo is yet to be discussed.

    Through the Revelation of Jesus Christ we know that the, "beast that rises from the bottomless pit will make war on them and conquer them and kill them". (Revelation 11:7 ESV) The revelation continues that their dead bodies will lie in the streets of Jerusalem for 3-1/2 days. (Revelation 11:9 ESV)

    If Sunday, March 21, 2027 is the 28,800th day of the generation then this may be the day of the death of the two witnesses. If so then add 3-1/2 days to 5/21/27 to arrive at Thursday, March 25, 2027. What days are these on the civil calendar? These are the days of Purim! It is suggested the two witnesses would rise (harpazo) on 17 Adar II or the day after Purim ends.

    Perhaps not a bad fit for what Scripture tells us?

    Hmmm...

    This is going to be a long post so I will break it into pieces. The next segment will take a look at the days of their witness and what that shows.

    Blessings,

    2. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Continued)

      Hello, Ardith and thank you!

      Some of the key features of the end times we all know about are the 1,260/1,290/1,335 days. These idioms tell us that if we take Scripture literally and at its word we will find these dates in a calendar model. This is where my studies started. How may these day counts be expressed in the end of days?

      1,260 days is equivalent to "a time, times and half a time" (Daniel 12:7), 42 months or 3-1/2 years. Hmmm, there's that number again! 3-1/2. A span of time that should ring a bell as it was also the length of the earthly ministry of Jesus. Many teach that the time of trouble, the 70th Week of Daniel, is divided into 1,260 days + 1,260 days for a total 2,520 days. My model suggests otherwise.

      Again, let's look back to the two witnesses. John records that the two witnesses, "will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." (Revelation 11:3 ESV) Therefore all we need to do is subtract 1,260 days from the end of the two witnesses ministry to find the time of their arrival. This means we need to determine when is the end of their witness. I hold that their witness ends when they are taken (harpazo) by God after 3-1/2 days of laying dead in the streets of Jerusalem. After all, wouldn't they testify to the prophetic Scriptures even in death? I believe so.

      Thursday, March 25, 2027 - 1,260 days = Thursday, October 12, 2023

      This is the approximate date suggested by the model that the two witnesses arrive if counted from their harpazo. (It all depends on time of day of their death and resurrection). Does that mean that this is the day of the Rapture? All I am saying is this is when the model suggests the arrival of the two witnesses. IMHO the harpazo will be long before that day. Emphasis, IMHO!!

      Okay, but what about the 1,290 days? How does that fit in?

      That in the next installment...

    3. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Continued)

      I have to be honest, the 1,290 days were one of the hardest parts of this puzzle. My approach to trying to understand it (as with this whole endeavour) required patience, prayer and a lot of study. The 1,290 days is given in (Daniel 12) as Daniel asks the holy angel, "How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?" (Daniel 12:7 ESV) Okay, but the end of what things? Endings start sounding generational if you catch my meaning!

      Chapter 12 begins with the time of trouble. It then looks back to the, "time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book." (Daniel 12:1 ESV) The angel continues, "And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt." (Daniel 12:2 ESV) Finally the angel closes with, "And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever." (Daniel 12:3 ESV)

      Through Daniel we are seeing a picture of the resurrection of the righteous in their orders. (Second and third order as Christ is the first fruits and first order of the resurrection). One are the OT saints while the other is the body of Christ -- those who are wise. It is from this time, a time from which the two witnesses rise that we see the count for the 1,290 days. The first half of the 70th week not the second half. These things mark the beginning and thus the starting point for the 1,290 days.

      Next, how does this fit into place?

      Daniel asked when will be the end of these wonders? The end comes when the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set-up. When is that? That takes place at the mid-point of the 70th week. When does the clock start? The clock started when the two witnesses arrived,

      Thursday, October 12, 2023 + 1,290 days = Saturday, April 24, 2027


      Delete
    4. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Continued)

      The mid-point of the 70th week or what is better know as the beginning of the Time of Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation. What day is this on the Jewish civil calendar? It is during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pesach III, the third day of Passover. Emphasis THIRD DAY!!!!

      3 One of its heads seemed
      to have a mortal wound, but
      its mortal wound was healed,
      and the whole earth marveled
      as they followed the beast.

      (Revelation 13:3 ESV)

      One picture we have of the beast is as a seven headed serpent rising out of the sea of which one of the heads had received a mortal wound. A death blow. Meaning the beast died and was resurrected. A picture of what will be on display for the world to see.

      Jesus said,

      15 "So when you see the
      abomination of desolation
      spoken of by the prophet
      Daniel, standing in the holy
      place (let the reader under-
      stand)

      RED LETTERS (Matthew 24:15 ESV)

      Let the reader understand indeed! This is for all of us to understand. Especially those caught left behind and witnessing this spectacle, perhaps being live-streamed from the holy of holies of the Third Temple! A place where no man may enter. Only the High Priest may enter and on one day of the year. Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. All others are subject to death upon entering. It is a desecration of the Temple and it will be on display such that we would know when it happened.

      "...then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."

      This is the beginning of the Great Tribulation and the second count of 1,260 days,

      5 And the beast was given a
      mouth uttering haughty and
      blasphemous words, and it
      was allowed to exercise
      authority for forty-two months.

      (Revelation 15:3 ESV)


      Forty-two months. Remember, that's 1,260 days or 3-1/2 years. John teaches us through the Revelation that Israel, "the woman", will be given, "the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time." (Revelation 12:14 ESV) There's that idiom again. It's the 1,260 days, 42 months or 3-1/2 years. The exact amount of time given the beast to exercise authority.

      What calendar day is found at the end of the 42 months when counted from a mid-point of Saturday, April 24, 2027?

      Yom Kippur, 2030. The Day of Atonement.

      This would mark the Glorious Second Coming of our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus,

      11 Then I saw heaven opened,
      and behold, a white horse! The
      one sitting on it is called Faithful
      and True, and in righteousness
      he judges and makes war.

      (Revelation 19:11 ESV)


      Jesus, our High Priest in the Order of Melchizedek, returns to free the elect of Israel, the woman, who has been hiding in the wilderness for 3-1/2 years. Jesus returns to destroy His enemies, Gog Magog,

      15 From his mouth comes a sharp
      sword with which to strike down
      the nations, and he will rule them
      with a rod of iron.

      (Revelation 19:15 ESV)


      Jesus, our High Priest returns to Jerusalem to fulfill His priestly duties on Yom Kippur.

      Just a snap-shot of what is to come on that Glorious Day!!!

      That leaves us with the 1,335 days next time...

      Blessings,

    6. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Continued)

      Looking over the model I am reminded of another feature of the arrival date of the two witnesses that I would be remiss not to share. Again, according to Chabad.org the modeled arrival date of the witnesses (Thursday, October 12, 2023) or 27 Tishrei, 5784 falls just days after the end of the fall feasts. That may be a disappointment to some but wait! The end of the fall feasts bring a VERY important date! Saturday, October 14, 2023 is a very important Shabbat,

      Quoting, Chabad.org,

      Shabbat Bereishit

      The Shabbat after Simchat Torah is Shabbat Bereishit -- "Shabbat of Beginning" -- the first Shabbat of the annual Torah reading cycle, on which the Torah section of Bereishit ("In the Beginning") is read.

      The weekly Torah reading is what defines the Jewish week, serving as the guide and point of reference for the week's events, deeds and decisions; Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi called this "living with the times." Hence the theme and tone of this week is one of beginning and renewal, as we launch into yet another cycle of Torah life. The Rebbes of Chabad would say: "As one establishes oneself on Shabbat Bereishit, so goes the rest of the year."

      The modeled arrival of the two witnesses, the two angels (messengers) ordained and sent by God to preach the good news to the nations from Jerusalem occurs just in time for the new year of Torah reading beginning with (Genesis 1:1-6:8).

      Knowing that they will come in the Name of the LORD what a better day to begin their testimony?!!

      Coming up next...the 1,335 days.

    7. 12 Blessed is he who waits

      This has always been a standout passage to me. What is the blessing that awaits? When is that blessing available? IF it were me and I was waiting for a blessing what would it be? IF I were one of the elect of Israel living in the wilderness I would be longing for the beginning of the kingdom! The coming of the King! What then do we see if counting from the beginning of the Time of Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation?

      Saturday, April 24, 2027 + 1,335 days = Friday, December 20, 2030

      Is this a significant date on the Jewish calendar?

      24 Kislev, 5791 (Hanukkah I)

      Quoting, Chabad.org,

      Jewish History

      Construction of the Second Temple Resumes (353 BCE)
      In the first year of rule of Cyrus, the King of Persia, Jews were given permission to return to Israel and rebuild the Holy Temple. A group of Jews led by Zerubavel set out for Jerusalem and began working on the second Temple. However, the Cutheans falsely accused the Jews of plotting a rebellion against King Cyrus and were successful in halting the construction of the Holy Temple for the remainder of his reign and throughout the reign of Ahasuerus, his successor. Construction resumed in the second year of the reign of Darius, Ahasuerus's son, on the 24th of Kislev.

      Friday, December 20, 2030 is the last day of Fall. A new season begins with the coming solstice. "On the 1st night of Chanukah, we recite three blessings before lighting."

      "Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days." (Daniel 12:12 ESV)


      There it is. The study model I am currently working with based upon the last generation of Israel being personified in the two witnesses. (Psalm 90:10)

      I pray this model and study has been a blessing to you and yours,

    8. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Conclusion)

      If you've followed me to this point you may be asking, "Okay, PR, that's really neat! But what about the Rapture?"

      Remember, I said up front that I'm not looking for the harpazo per-se but looking at how Scripture lines up with our modern calendar. "But why use the modern Hebrew calendar?" "Isn't if 'off' and the appointed days falling in the wrong places for various reasons?" I have asked that question myself and offer this response...

      Was not Jesus crucified according to the timing of G-D? When did Jesus enter Jerusalem? When was He hung on the cross? When did He die on Calvary? When did He rise again? All at times that corresponded to the appointed times of the ruling religious elites -- the Pharisees.

      I get a "laugh" out of that! Jesus, the One whom they said had a demon. The One who they said they knew as they knew his mother and father. The One who ate with sinners. The One who healed on the Sabbath. The One who forgave sins. The One who performed miracles. The One whom the people wanted to make king. The One who said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am." (John 8:58 ESV) JESUS was crucified according to the day and timing of the Passover lamb. Even better, He rose on the third day which was the Feast of First Fruits according to THEIR CALENDAR!!! (Totally different day than the Essene calendar!)

      With these facts in mind, would it not also make sense that the end times occur according to the calendar of the ruling party of the day? The Jewish civil calendar?

      Hmmm...

      If so, that makes the meaning and message hard to ignore if not undeniable!

      But what of the Rapture?

      The world appears on the verge of limited global nuclear warfare. That as well as a host of other signs, the least of which being the coming blood moon, point to the harpazo being soon. Very soon. What better weapon of choice by the dragon to devour the church? Devour the man child of the woman? (Revelation 12:4) Destruction by fire is certainly a dragon thing!

      Warning signs are all over this blood moon. Warning signs and judgment are all over Armistice Day (Veteran's Day) this year and next. Both days (11/11/22 and 11/11/23) coincide with the beginning and end of the flood of Noah. The Azovmena Prophecy comes to mind as well. Even the Kaduri Prophecy is still in play. (At least until Benjamin Netanyahu forms a new government in Israel), war to end all wars...the list can go on and on, but sometime between now and the arrival of the two witnesses (per the model) would be the harpazo. That is about all that I can say about the Rapture by this model.

      That means we have now, this moment, to make disciples baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Help just one more person see Jesus. One more seat filled on the Ark. One more soul for the LORD. One more day to pray for the lost. One more day to pray for the saints. Even if you're bedridden you can pray! Pray the LORD bring you someone who has questions that needs your answers. So if that's you, be a prayer warrior on the front-lines. We need all the help we can get. After all, by faith are you not a message bearer? An angel (that means "messenger")...and therefore a minister of the faith?

      Indeed you are.

      Carry on and know that God's got this!

      Grace and peace to you,

    9. Doing a double-check and looking at official times of the equinox for Fall 2030 we see the Autumnal Equinox of occurring at 7:26 PM (Eastern) on Sunday, September 22, 2030. Isn't that interesting?! 7:26 PM (Eastern) on the 13th anniversary of the Great Sign of Revelation 12.

      The Fall Equinox of 2030 was not a feature of the 1,260/1,290/1,335 day counts but is an interesting fact. Checking further into Timeanddate.com I also see that sunrise in Jersualem on 9/22/30 will be at 6:27 AM (7-2-6 in reverse). The length of day is typically about 726 minutes at that time of the year in Jerusalem. On this day it is forecast to be 728 minutes long.

      Out of curiosity I checked out Strong's (G728) and (H728). You know I enjoy learning Strong's Concordance. Both words bring to mind the Lord on His soon return in what is modeled as the last day of Fall 2030 in three months time from the Equinox. (Hmmm, three months sure reminds me of three days). It's also notable that Nautical Twilight will end at 7:28 PM that evening and Astronomical Twilight at 8:00 PM.

      Such patterns are a common feature of Jewish prophecy and the reason why I bring light to them. Remember, this is looking forward to the modeled return and Second Coming of Christ not the Rapture. This is seven years in our future as of today.

      Blessings

    10. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Update)

      This morning I was given another piece of what *may* be the puzzle pointing to the Day of our Blessed Hope.

      2022 was a very special year for me on my birthday. This is the day when Venus and Jupiter met as a morning star event. The Bethlehem Star. Venus was the bright morning star, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn were all lined up across the early morning sky is a fabulous procession! Seeing it under clear skies nothing short of a perfect birthday gift from the LORD!

      (John 21) has been part of my focus in studying the Day of our Blessed Hope. I believe that this chapter is a picture of the harpazo to come with the 153 large fish emblematic of the child of the woman that is caught up to God and His throne (Revelation 12:5).

      The number "153" has been stuck in my head for some time given that it is much like the dates constructs given in (Leviticus 23) for the times of the appointed feasts given by DDMM in the TNK (Tanakh). The 15th day of the third month on the calendar of the Essenes is always Shavuot (Pentecost). This is totally different than the calendar of the Pharisees. This suggested and brought to mind the question, "is God pointing us to Pentecost on the Essene calendar? The calendar of the Zadok priests?"

      I think there is reason to believe He is.

      If 153 were a reference and pointer to Pentecost what more do we find?

      This year (2022) counting from the Spring Day of Remembrance (New Year's Day on the Essene calendar) to the advent of the Bethlehem Star was 37 days or 888 hours. Thirty-seven is a watermark number in Scripture and equivalent to 888 hours. Eight-hundred, eighty-eight is the number of the Name Jesus (Ιησούς) in Greek! (Remember, Greek letters are numbers just as it is in Hebrew). Pentecost was then 37-days (888 hours) after the Bethlehem Star in April of this year. A perfect and peculiar pattern!

      When I found this fact via my last model I was left asking, "is Pentecost of 2022 the Day of our Blessed Hope?" It had the features of being the Day. It was not only Pentecost on the Essene calendar but according to all of the calendars.

      As striking as this find was we are still here.

      Add this piece to the puzzle from this morning,

      10 The LORD said,

      "I will surely return to you about
      this time next year, and Sarah
      your wife shall have a son."

      (Genesis 18:10a ESV)


      The Genesis account of the announcement of the promised birth of Isaac comes ONE YEAR BEFORE HIS BIRTH!! Could the same be true of us? What was the promise God gave Abraham about the number of his children? Are we not also children of Abraham? Spiritual children? Indeed we are...and if so then Sarah is the woman who brings to birth the male child.

      Was the seed of the woman, the birth of the man-child of (Revelation 12) declared in the heavens ONE YEAR before the actual event?

      Counting from Pentecost (Shavuot) 2022 what do we find about a year later? Pentecost 2023. That's June 4, 2023 on the Essene calendar. (Keep in mind the Essenes had a different interpretation of the Feast of First Fruits).

      "I will surely return to you about this time next year and Sarah your wife [the woman] shall have a son."

      The male child of the father of us all was foretold one year before his birth. May the same be true of the man-child of the woman of (Revelation 12)?

      Glory to God in the Highest!!!

  4. If Trump were to follow the pattern of Netanyahu, we couldn't but think Resurrection!

    1. Trump. All politics aside, I can't help but feel like there's something apocalyptic about that man. Like all those numbers (so many sevens) that people found around his birth and presidency, and other things. I also have a strong hunch that he hasn't said his "last word", he has some part to play yet, for good or ill, before this is over. It honestly wouldn't surprise me if he was America's last president, for some reason I thought so way back when he won the first time. Would be fitting with his name, "the last Trump" indeed, just like the one sounding before the rapture.

      And seeing Netanyahu win now, and considering how closely tied he is with Trump (the involvement in the strange peace deal and the Abraham accords), there does seem to be something serious cooking in the realm of the spiritual. With a more stable government and with Netanyahu at the helm, I imagine they will want to finalize those deals, which is very prophetic in itself. On top of it all, consider the war in Ukraine (+the threat of Iran, Syria, etc.), if these more "hawkish" leaders get involved in warfare, things could move very quickly towards a world conflict. Either way, I'm going to watch now closer than ever, if that's even possible. :) Looks like things are on the move.

      I could be wrong about all this of course, just my thoughts.

    2. YES! The "apocalyptic man" should well be the final puzzle piece falling into place foretold by Daniel re the collapse of failed world governments/empires. The handwriting on the wall is screaming: "Money is the root of all evil, God hates pride, the meek shall inherit the earth." What more is needed for the fall of "exceptional" bankrupt America than the return of the Master of Deception whose love of money is only surpassed by his love of self. Such a fitting metaphor to "Pride goes before a fall."

      Delete
    3. In defense if Trump I do not believe that he's in love with himself or is greedy. That is a cliche of all wealthy people.
      Trump has a deep and abiding love for America. He had a great life with billions of dollars, a beautiful wife and a big healthy successful family. He could have retired and played golf at Maralago the rest of his life, but then he decided to jump into politics and in my opinion he saved America.
      I dont think most people realize the bullet our country dodged by not electing hillary clinton.
      Trump gave up a great life to run for the thankless job of President. Not for his own egotistical self promotion but for his love of country. A true patriot who continues to demonstrate it by his campaigning for others where he is still drawing crowds of up to 50,000 people and he's been out of office for nearly two years.
      Dont be surprised that if the Lord tarries that Trump will return to power and it might not take until 2024. The election was stolen from him two years ago and I believe that will be rectified.

  7. Gary – I have a suggestion for a future article, based on the Climate Change Conference being held on Mt Sinai in 10 days. Here’s a link: https://interfaithsustain.com/returning-to-mt-sinai/ where you’ll see a discussion topic on Nov 14th called: Faith Leaders Share Ten Universal Principles for Climate Justice
    Yuval Noah Harari refers to this as "A World with Completely Different Laws" & "We Will Rebuild the Temple"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is so incredibly interesting. Reminds me of: "He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High; and he shall think to change the times and the law"
      -Daniel 7:25

      And holding that at Mt Sinai? Really? Rebuild the temple? Feels like the secular mask is finally slipping and the spirit underneath is being revealed. A lot of us sensed there's something "iffy" with the climate movement, but it was hard to put a finger on it with secular logic. Now that the climax is approaching, we might finally get some vindication (for ourselves, I don't expect the world at large to turn until the tribulation). It's also very exciting to see, as it's yet another indicator of how close we must be getting.

    2. Yuval NOAH Harari--yet another "days of Noah" flag!

      An article at But That's Just Me Blog shares a couple of good related videos. She also writes re. this Sinai Conference:

      "They will say Jesus was “just a good man” who walked the earth and to we are not to worship him. They will use Noahide laws to do this and, as we know per previous blog posts about those laws, worshiping Jesus will be considered idol worship punishable by death."

  8. In all seriousness, is it possible Donald Trump will become the biblical Antichrist?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I thought about that possibility too. There are very strong feelings about who the Antichrist "must" or "can't" be, some say definitely no, some say he surely is, I personally try to stick with the attitude that we're not waiting for the Antichrist, we're waiting for Jesus Christ, so whoever it turns out to be, should be revealed after our rapture (in the traditional pre-trib view, which I personally hold to).

      Like I said in my previous comment, I do see Trump as an apocalyptic figure of sorts, whether he is or isn't the actual AC. It's also very possible that he's not the AC, but could be one of the final world leaders before the AC takes over. Only God knows.

      As for the man DJT himself, I don't trust him, don't have much of a personal liking for him due to the pride and other things, but also sympathise with his supporters and get where they're coming from, as the alternative is terrible. But that's enough of that, I already sense a political debate coming, which is not my intention. There is no political solution to a spiritual problem, as Tim Henderson says. I will say this, he does seem to radiate a certain strange power and charm, but I give him the benefit of the doubt, I wish and pray he was saved, or would get saved in the future. He surely wouldn't be the first and probably not the last person who many Christians thought was the AC.

      Delete
    2. The "terrible alternative" is the very thing that precedes the coming of the Lord. Fending off globalism is not the role of Christians! Christ comes only AFTER the rise of globalism & Antichrist to DEFEAT it & set up His Kingdom. Anyone praying ":Thy Kingdom come" in earnest must be ready to accept the rise of that "terrible alternative" and embrace the Word of God in its entirety. Those who cannot let go of their apostate country are wading in the waters of Lot's Wife.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I agree in principle, but I still get that people want to slow it down. You could argue that Christians doing Satanic rituals would probably also "hasten the rise of the terrible alternative, which would hasten the coming of the Lord", but I hope you wouldn't say we should actually do that. I would reference this passage: "Jesus said to his disciples: 'Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come.'" (Luke 17:1). I think while we do see the inevitability, we should also try to keep "our hands clean" as much as we can... "What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?"
      But I agree that evil has infiltrated almost everything now, so I don't see it being slowed down much.

      Delete
    4. No one can either slow down or speed up God's perfect timing in His perfect will. To think otherwise is pride. Hence "THY Kingdom come, THY WILL be done." The futility of agonizing over elections has become a full time exercise for all of those to whom Jesus advised in the end times: "DO NOT BE DECEIVED"

      Delete
    5. Of course in the grand scheme of things everything is determined by the Lord, but we are judged for our actions nonetheless. It reminds me of the determinism vs free will debate, perhaps both can be true. My point wasn't about being able to change God's will, but rather a matter of personal conscience, having done what you reasonably could have to avoid supporting evil. That's all. And I'm not even American, so I don't vote in those elections, I just expressed sympathy with those who do.

      Of course one shouldn't put hope in any man, let alone a politician, you won't find any disagreement from me there, some people do idolize politics and go over the top and I don't condone that.

    6. There comes a point in the depraved Days of Noah & Lot that all the "choices" are evil be it the greater or the so called lesser of 2 evils. "Choosing" becomes nothing more than an exercise in picking something God hates. That is how we know with certainty Jesus is coming any minute as promised. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”—2 Timothy 3:1-5

      I find the defining moment on this one to be the response he gave, on camera, when asked as to his accomplishment of the Abraham Accords on the heels of so many attempts earlier being ineffective. As I recall, he put out his hands, palms up, and looked somewhat up & to the left of the podium/audience, somewhat upwards, as if looking around, up into 'the stands', and stated something along the lines of, "I don't know; I guess I must be the 'Chosen One?"

      That allusion to a 'higher power', individual or collective, does not align with the same person later declaring themselves to be G-d. He is a good foreshadow of the hubris, but this statement, alone, by him, excludes him, imho.

      Low energy costs, high employment across all demographics and no war. What has happened in last two years?

  9. When America was "great," the motto written on the money was "In God we trust." Finally, the love of money engendered a new evil motto "It's the economy, stupid" and the money became as inflated as the egos of the elected leaders worthy of vomit by the Lord:
    Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked." JESUS IS ON THE WAY! The last Christian country has fallen to prideful apostasy.

    It occurred to me that as the moon was setting in the west across the East Coast of the United States that poll workers were going to work and setting about duties for which so many volunteered for.

    Thank you for your service!

    The timing of this blood moon is most conspicuous and cannot be ignored if watching,

    31 The sun will be turned to
    darkness and the moon to
    blood before the great and
    terrible day of the LORD
    comes.

    (Joel 2:31 CSB)


    Solar and lunar eclipses come in pairs. You cannot have one without the other soon behind. A sign that is burned into our memory and watched for on our radar screen. Timeanddate.com is a great source of eclipse data if you wish to study eclipses further!

    Eclipses are predictable and can be modeled just as the rest of the heavens that God established and set into motion. Such that nobody can change them. Nobody. Therefore they glorify God,

    1 The heavens declare the
    glory of God, and the expanse
    proclaims the work of his hands.

    2 Day after day they pour out
    speech; night after they
    communicate knowledge.

    (Psalm 19:1-2 CSB)


    This space does not allow for all the ways we should be looking for the signs of the times -- as though the human mind could comprehend it all. Mine certainly cannot. But a point of study that is worthy for greater examination may be found in the opening post of this article. A closer look at (Revelation 12:4-5). Clearly a future event.

    Can we see such a threat to the body today? Consumption by fire? The news today includes stories of US and Russian officials meeting to reduce tensions of potential nuclear escalation resulting from the war in Ukraine. All of the major powers have just concluded their annual nuclear warfare practice drills -- notable is North Korea which did the same in a very verbose manner.

    No, this is not new. These drills have been happening since the early days of the Cold War. Still, those were the days BEFORE the Great Sign of Revelation 12 and not after. Post Great Sign is, IMHO, a completely different animal. A new era if you will.

    I believe we have just witnessed a sign. A warning of the storm to come. We who know the terrors yet to come and the Way of Salvation owe it to those who are perishing the message of faith. Our hope in Jesus Christ! To that end I invite you to join us here in prayer for the encouragement of the Saints to the blessing of the lost. That God present us hearts hungry for the Word and a mouth to share that Word. Honestly. Boldly.

    Prayer is the key. Prayer and the willingness to be present and be used by God to reach one more soul. One more witness. Your story (which is really His story in you) in your own words. Honest, relatable and true. May the Spirit convict those we meet of the truth we share...and if you don't know what to say? Be still, listen, and allow God to give you the words. Study! Dwell in the Word. Devour the Bible daily and stay as close to the Good Shepherd as you can!

    Time is growing so, so short.

    Blessings, always,

  18. As the faux elections continue, I can't help but wonder just how much cheating and conniving God will allow in order to set up another of the 10 kingdoms. I don't pretend to know how it will all shake out, but when you see so many of Satan's minions running France, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, the BRICS nations, and the rest, then you can't help but wonder whether or not we need more Global Reset politicians to prepare the good old USA for a similar setup.

    Or maybe this nation will be removed more violently . . . after we are removed more miraculously.

  19. We can conclude that the cheating apparently was overwheling yesterday as all the polls and history indicated large gains for republicans. While disappointed in the short term it only confirms we are at the very end of the church age as rampant cheating in the land of the free and the home of the brave goes hugely communist. This close to the return of Jesus and the start of the tribulation we should not have expected anything different. We might also conclude that the Lord is cutting the last cord to those beleivers still holding out hope for a political solution for America. Perhaps today! Maranatha!

  20. THE ONLY VOTE THAT COUNTS

    Good-O-Meter

    We ran this as the opener at worship the other week. No commentary required from me...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When the Good-O-Meter swung to "not good enough, they should have had demons come out of the wall or from beneath the floor and drag them down to ... you know ... an unpleasant place with fire burning, ear-piercing screams of the damned and horrible torturous moaning taking place (if we wanted to make it more accurate that is). But the message was clear nonetheless.

      I'll never forget the first time I ever saw a certain documentary concerning the after-death experience of a man who got into a fight with another person and got slashed. He apparently died and left his body and experienced a horrible sight in the realm of the damned. The computer graphics they used in that documentary to depict one of the people in the realm of the lost that he witnessed was truly disturbing. In fact, I have it uploaded to my youtube channel. They inserted an animation of a lost soul in a sea of fire making desperate and horrible groaning sounds while showing the person's face bobbing up and down within the sea of fire.

      I saw it before I ever got saved and it put a fear in me that I'll never forget. Of course, I don't feel that way anymore, but it is still one of the most memorable short documentary segments on Hell and the afterlife I've ever seen.

    2. Of course, I should add that many after death experiences seem unbiblical and may be demonic visions, perhaps both good and bad, but for some reason, I have a difficult time with dismissing that particular individual's experience as such.

      At the end of the day, there will be no "Good O Meter" for anyone. Only one qualification will save an individual from their ultimate fate - nothing other than personal faith in Jesus Christ as payment for entrance through the "pearly gates" (so to speak).

    3. Thanks for sharing the link!

      As you say, at the end of the day, there will be no "Good-O-Meter" but it does get the message across. What we think as good enough (earning our way to heaven) will always be found wanting. The part I like the most is when Jesus tosses the man's file on a pile with all the others. Forgiven. Forgotten. Tossed out by unmerited grace. Unrelenting love.

  22. Thinking about the dragon...

    could china invade taiwan over their new year?

    Why ask this question? What is it that seeks to devour the man-child of the woman of the Great Sign? The dragon. How does the dragon destroy? By fire is one way. Does China have a global reach to destroy by fire? Yes.

    Noting that 280 Sabbaths from the Great Sign brings you to the end of the Chinese New Year coming in January got me thinking and asking questions. We've just had the LAST blood moon for three years. (Joel 2:31) tells us that the harpazo will happen AFTER a blood moon. (Psalm 90:10) tells us the age of the last generation. If that generation is personified in the two witnesses then they would arrive in about 11 months from now. (See study model above)

    3. The partial solar eclipse of (10/25) that was tied to this lunar eclipse (11/8) was very interesting. It went right over Scandanavia/Eastern Europe (NATO), Belarus, Russia, Ukraine and Iran. The blood moon is timed such that it is the last one before my study model suggests the arrival of the two witnesses. That would mean anytime between now and October 11/12, 2023 for the harpazo. All of this appears to fit Scriptural prophecy so far. We honestly won't know until Parashat Bereshit next fall if the model is right or not.

  23. Good stuff PR! Perhaps today! We are so ready Lord Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  24. At least we know (with certainty) a few things concerning the preconditions of the harpazo as found in (Revelation 12:4),

    1. The dragon must be standing before the woman
    2. The dragon must be ready (able) to devour the man-child
    3. The man-child must be complete (ready to be born)
    4. The Holy Spirit must dwell within the man-child

    In the days of Christ it was Herod the Great that personified the dragon. Herod sent his troops against the families of Bethlehem to kill the male children of about two years. Who (or what) will personify the dragon on that Day of our Blessed Hope? Whatever it is that manifests the dragon in earthly terms it will be the enemy pulling its strings, Satan.

    As for the newborn child, "one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron"...we have nothing to fear,

    4 Even though I walk through
    the valley of the shadow of
    death, I will fear no evil, for
    you are with me; your rod
    and your staff, they comfort
    me.

    (Psalm 23:4 ESV)


    Indeed. God is with us. Emmanuel and will be with us in that Day. The dragon shall be frustrated. Confounded.

    10 And I heard a loud voice
    in heaven, saying,

    "Now the salvation and the
    power and the kingdom of
    our God and the authority
    of his Christ have come, for
    the accuser of our brothers
    has been thrown down, who
    accuses them day and night
    before our God.

    (Revelation 12:10 ESV)


    And the dead in Christ will be raised and we will be changed. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) The second order of the resurrection of the righteous will be at hand. Those who are Christ's at His coming. His body. His bride. The Spirit-filled church of Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:22-23)

    Today is the day of salvation. Today is the day of Jesus, the very word which literally means, "salvation!" Mankind was not meant for the time of testing that is to come upon the earth. God has done EVERYTHING needed to secure our eternal safety.

    Why?

    Because that's what LOVE does.

    Ask Him into your life today.

    (1 John 4:19)

    1. P. Rich, one thing I noticed about the Dragon passage in Revelation is that he stands ready to devour "as soon as it [the baby] is born". Doesn't the birth signify the resurrection? Also, look at the passage beforehand, it talks about the dragon sweeping a third of the stars (angels) from Heaven. So my "face value" interpretation (could be more to it of course), is that it looks like Satan and his angels get kicked out of heaven, perhaps symbolically to stop accusing the brethren and "make space" (be exchanged) for the yet to be raptured Christians. Then the Dragon crouches and is waiting for the resurrection, because he knows it follows shortly. He then tries to spiritually devour the resurrected saints, but fails to do so, as the saints get raptured (after the resurrection), so the Dragon turns his attention to the woman (Israel) and the Tribulation saints.

      So my point was mainly to ask you whether you consider what the "soon as it is born" passage means and whether it can be explained in any other way besides Haylel or whatever his name is, the angelic Satan, and perhaps his fallen entourage, being the Dragon, instead of China or any lesser, "secular" (non spiritual) power.

    2. Yes, the birth of the man-child occurs at the resurrection/rapture (harpazo). Yes, when they (the enemy) come down we go up! The threatened destruction of the Saints by the dragon is a physical destruction. A spiritual war has been ongoing for sometime now in an attempt to Spiritually kill the body as well (if not make it sick or ineffective!) The dragon means to kill the man-child. Yes, the dragon fails and turns its attention to the woman (Israel) and the Tribulation Saints. It will not have the woman (Israel). It will have many, if not most, of the Tribulation Saints.

      Herod the Great was a type of the dragon. Satan was pulling the strings of that attempt at the life of Jesus at Bethlehem. Jesus was taken away from Bethlehem to Egypt. Likewise, I submit, the dragon will likely be typified by a human entity (national government I suggest) driven behind the scenes by Satan. One that has the technological, military and political ability to wage war on the Saints and everyone else with proximity.

      My earlier comments on birth were based on some known facts. Birth occurs when the child has matured to such a point that they may live outside of the mother's womb. It also occurs because it can no longer stay in the mother's womb. Our eldest was one month overdue and induced. He was a big boy and was running out of room in there! So there is a literal point at which the child must be born if to survive.

      May it be that the dragon is a contributing factor to the timing of the birth? Birth is required for survival? Is the dragon cast out at such a time that it arrives on the scene just in time to cross paths with the child as the number of the Gentiles is completed? Is it all of the above? These are points to dig on and all good questions. Questions worth asking and digging on. One thing we know for sure -- God is WAY out in front when it comes to knowing the future. Satan doesn't have His outlook on things. Thus it has to be ready at all times to devour the man-child because it really doesn't know *when* the time will come that the restrainer is removed and it has a free hand in the world to do its worst!

      18 Children, it is the last hour,
      and as you have heard that
      antichrist is coming, so now
      many antichrists have come.
      Therefore we know that it is
      the last hour.

      (1 John 2:18 ESV)


      Yes, China, Russia or any other earthly power is a lesser power; Herod the Great was a lesser power. Still, that lesser power was a physical manifestation of the enemy here on Earth. A physical expression of that which comes from the Spiritual realm.

      The coming Antichrist will be another expression of that Spirit here on Earth. I suspect the Beast will be much like Judas Iscariot or Adolf Hitler was but far, far worse. It will be the true (final) instead of (anti) Christ.

      So, I believe the temporal powers will be physical expressions of the Spiritual powers at enmity with God just as we have seen in the past. That seems to be Satan's MO. The same lies over and over again.

      As John pointed out, it is the last hour. The changing seasons are being seen even by secular eyes. LORD use those eyes to change hearts and minds as well and bring lost souls to God in Christ!

    3. Thank you very much for the lengthy explanation. I totally understand that the lesser powers can be influenced by Satan and cause immense damage, even to the Body of Christ. And I also see your point about concurrence, that surely if the Dragon is ready to devour in the "secular", there is a background to it in the spiritual.

      The reason I brought up the birth is that IF it signifies resurrection, that Dragon, weirdly enough, tries to devour us AFTER the resurrection (birth) ["as soon as it is born", not while "in the womb"], which is what cought my attention and prompted me to type out my comment in the first place. It's strange to me because I'd think he'd try to do it beforehand, while he still has some power over us (while we're in our sinful bodies). I don't see how he expects to hurt resurrected saints, which is why I concluded they have to have their full angelic power to even seriously consider the possibility.

      But again, I understand your point about concurrence, if we see the lesser Dragon symbol crouching and being ready to devour the Church worldwide, I definitely see how that can signify/foreshadow the same in the spiritual.

    4. There is still some digging to do on this topic. I know we've barely scratched the surface of it. Too easy to just read and accept on face value what we read without considering it in greater depth.

      Strong's Concordance (G2719) gives us this insight to the term "devour",

      katesthió: to eat up
      Original Word: κατεσθίω
      Part of Speech: Verb
      Transliteration: katesthió
      Phonetic Spelling: (kat-es-thee'-o)
      Definition: to eat up
      Usage: I eat up, eat till it is finished, devour, squander, annoy, injure.

      HELPS Word-studies
      2719 katesthíō (from 2596 /katá, "down," intensifying 2068 /esthíō, "eat") – properly, eat all the way down; (figuratively) utterly devour, leaving nothing; ferociously consume all the way down, i.e. with a rapacious, voracious appetite – leaving only ruination, without hope of recovery (or even remains).

      Does our enemy have a "rapacious, voracious appetite?" It certainly does. Does our enemy wish to leave us in "ruination, without hope of recovery" from the time of our Spiritual birth? I would say so, yes.

      With the busy weekend now behind me perhaps I can dedicate some quiet study time to this? I hope so. There are some interesting facets to explore in this question.

    5. I dropped back to some commentaries and thought I would share this one,

      Quoting, Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers on Biblehub.com,

      And the dragon.—Translate, And the dragon stands (not “stood”) before the woman who is about to bring forth, that whenever she has brought forth he may devour her child. The spirit of evil is represented as ever on the watch to destroy the first tokens of better things. Our minds go back to the hatred and fear of Pharaoh, setting a watch for the offspring of Israel and ordering their destruction; and even more are we reminded of the jealous hatred of Herod seeking the life of the infant Christ. It seems clear that it is on this last incident that the present vision is primarily built up; but its meaning is much wider than this. It shows us that evermore, as Herod waited to destroy Christ, the devil, the old spirit whose malignity wrought through the fears of Pharaoh and of Herod, is on the watch to destroy every token of good and every resemblance to Christ in the world. The mission of the Church is to bring forth in her members this life of Christ before men: the aim of the wicked spirit is to destroy that life. The same hostility which was shown to the infant Christ is active against His children: “If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.”

      I may expand on this more but will leave it here for the moment noting that the dragon "stands" (ἕστηκεν) before the woman in (Revelation 12:4). A present tense. Very reflective of (Genesis 3:15). Enmity between the serpent and the woman, and between it's seed and her seed. Individually and corporately as a body.

      Delete
    6. EXPANDING...

      G-D placed enmity, "איבה", (ebah) between the serpent and the woman (Eve). (Genesis 3:15). G-D placed enmity between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. This is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The G-d of our fathers thus my traditional Jewish reference. By faith we are the seed of the woman and each of us know the attacks of the enemy.

      Seed is a concept shared by Jesus through the parable of the sower. Through the parable Jesus illustrates the heart condition of those who receive the word (seeds),

      18 "Hear then the parable of
      the sower:

      19 When anyone hears the
      word of the kingdom and does
      not understand it, the evil one
      comes and snatches away
      what has been sown in his
      heart."

      RED LETTERS (Matthew 18:18-19 ESV)

      Once again, the enemy devours the seed (snatches away) the message. This snatching away is a spiritual attack that produces collateral damage in the physical world.

      The enmity that was placed between the serpent and its seed and the woman and her seed has temporal limitations. It is not eternal. The serpent (dragon) will be cast into the lake of fire at the end of the last Gog Magog war.
      (Revelation 20:10) We're still over a millennium from that blessed event!

      In the meantime we are given a picture of the heart condition of the churches through the letters to the churches via the Revelation. The fruit of enmity and the heart condition of each church is illustrated (both good and bad) and is a picture of the child of the woman as a whole. Meaning, the sum total of the seven churches in Revelation paint a picture of us. The church and body of Christ.

      Our rewards for faithfulness and fearful reverence of God. Our rewards for sin and irreverence of God. The inheritance of each state if you will. As a body we are as a child just as we are individually (by faith) children of God. As a corporate body we are living toward the day that the number of the Gentiles is complete. Individually, we are living toward the day of our Blessed Hope.
      The day that the last believer accepts Christ into their life and the Father says, "Come!"

      On that Day, the Day of our Blessed Hope the dead in Christ will be raised and we who are His at His coming will be changed. This is a picture of birth. As we are spiritually born again we too shall be physically born again. Not to a tabernacle of corruptible flesh, but of incorruptibility. This is the ultimate delivery (birth) seen of the woman. Her seed given to incorruptibility through the resurrection.

      The enemy seeks to destroy us and has done so on a daily basis from the beginning. It will continue to do so until the end. It's end! For those who abide in Christ there is no end. Christ stands beside us, walking with us, setting a table in the presence of our enemies (Psalm 23:5) that we may be at peace protected by the Good Shepherd. (Psalm 23:1-4) The enemy will play the spoiler and devour what it can. We therefore are wise to be diligent and on guard against it; abiding in the sower who placed the seed within us. Protect and work the soil, removing weeds that choke and blight that diseases.

      One Day the child will be ready to go forth physically into glory. The enemy knows this and seeks to physically destroy us. Yes, it has tried in the past and will continue to try but it will not succeed. It will continue to make war and take with it as many as will go. But of the woman it will never devour her nor her child that is to be taken up to God and His throne. Her child will rule the nations with a rod of iron (Psalm 2:7-9), (Revelation 2:25-27), (Revelation 12:5).

      Is it any wonder there are yet more wars and rumors of wars?

      Stay in the Word.

      Abide in Christ alone!

    7. A couple more thoughts...

      Who today personifies the dragon in the temporal world? Who is talking and threaten nuclear war? In what spirit do they come? Is the technology of prophecy available to us today? Is the technology available that the AoD be seen by all in real-time? Can the two witnesses, their testimony, death and resurrection be live-streamed? Are the answers to these questions witness to where we are on the prophetic calendar and point toward the final push of the woman to bring to birth the child?

      I think we have very real answers to all of these questions as most seem to agree that time is getting very, very short.

    1. Hi Jon,

      Nothing wrong with asking the question but I submit the harpazo is solid imagery of the Revelation 12 Sign. The child of the woman is caught up to God and His throne. Christ the head with His church the body. (Head born first)

      The AC is clearly revealed at the mid-point of the last week. The birth of the child is a pre-tribulation event so I'm not sure the Great Sign as a sign of the AC.

      Thanks for the links. Will take a look there too...

      But you're right about shelf life. Enmity has a shelf life and ends (for us) at the casting of Satan into the lake of fire.

      Keep digging and keep asking!

  29. I'm not dogmatic about this, more of a framing of a question....looking at the Rev 12 sign age from another angle....because it is a little over 5 years old now, the rapture must be imminent (a relative term). I do think it was the sign (including the conception comet that happened 9 months earlier from the sign).

    If I was driving cross-country and had just left NYC, I wouldn't expect to see a road sign for Los Angeles ....when looking at rapture scenarios I wouldn't expect the Rev 12 sign to be many years out (>7 ?) from the rapture.

    1. Hi Jon!
      If we look at the Rev12 Sign as a possible 7-years warning to Israel of the soon time of Jacob's Trouble, then it makes perfect sense that God would arrange for it to occur in 2017 IF The Tribulation begins in 2024. As you probably know, it is evident in Scripture that God gives 7-year warnings as I shared in "Sign" Line Ends in 2022.

    3. It looks like early reporting was just that. Early reporting. The White House is saying that it is unlikely that the missile was launched from Russia. Reports out of Poland suggest it was Russian made. Agreed that it is likely a stray from Ukraine. This has happened at least once before with an old Soviet era UAV crossing NATO lines earlier this year and exploding in Croatia (IIRC). I don't know if it was ever ascertained who launched that drone.

      The photos on Hal Turner appear to show S-300 missile parts. S-300 are an surface-to-air system that the Russians have used for surface-to-surface strikes in Ukraine. That said, the Ukrainians have them too and use them for air defense. The question is then what type of missile was used in the attack on western Ukraine? We may never know.

      Nonetheless prayers are needed for the families of the lost.

As I was reading all the comments about the dragon snatching the child to devour it, I thought of the evil of abortion and had in my mind's eye the twisted evil abortionist grabbing a newly born baby and killing it. Maybe this prophecy was fulfilled when the law passed that babies that were accurately born alive could be killed? Maybe I'm wrong, but didn't an abortion law in California just get passed that allows this evil? Just something I was thinking about while reading all the interesting comments here.

    1. The light of truth can likened to light passing through a precious cut stone. Light tells a different story depending on your perspective. Spectra and even features of the stone are revealed. The dragon has been standing before the woman since the garden. It will one day be put away for 1,000 years and then released to stand once again. That will be but for a short time.

      How long? We don't know. Only God knows. But when the dragon leads the final rebellion of man, "אדם" (adam), against God it will meet an abrupt and ugly end in the lake of fire.

      Life begins at conception. Period.

      The destruction of that life is the desire and work of the dragon. The ultimate choice is the choice we are given by God Himself. The right to accept and choose God in Christ or not for the forgiveness of sin and that Jesus become the Lord of your life.

      Eternal life or eternal death.

      There is no middle ground.

  37. Oops! I slipped and hit the wrong button!!

    One more time with feeling as they say...


    ON THE SUBJECT OF CALENDARS

    I had a thought while working on the model this morning. (John 21:1-2) records that there were seven (7) disciples present when Jesus appeared to them on the shores of Galilee. One of them was Simon Peter who was at that time not yet reinstated to his station as an apostle. He had fallen as it were. His reinstatement came on the shores of the lake but after he had brought the 153 fish ashore.

    153 large fish appears very much a date reference to the 15th day of the third month the number six and seven struck me in relation to the Great Sign. (Another sign of the harpazo). That construct of dates (DDMM) is given for the appointed times in (Leviticus 23)

    The apostles listed in order are,

    1. Simon Peter
    2. Thomas
    3. Nathanael
    4. James
    5. John
    6. Unknown 1
    7. Unknown 2

    Seven men. Six of whom are still apostles at the opening of the chapter. What if those seven men each represent a year in time? A count?

    1. 2017
    2. 2018
    3. 2019
    4. 2020
    5. 2021
    6. 2022
    7. 2023

    ...and that this count is a count from the Great Sign of (9/23/2017) to the bringing of the full catch of fish to the Lord? The harpazo and resurrection of the Saints? Six years would account for the apostles leading into the chapter while Simon Peter would be reinstated, as it were, by the end of the chapter. Emblematic of the last in this set? There is a clear reference to restoration in the story of Peter. Restoration and redemption.

    Not too unlike the two witnesses? Struck down yet restored and risen again to their station?

    If so, then that could suggest a 2023 harpazo. Is there a date that fits the Biblical narrative of (John 20) for a harpazo on a significant date in 2023 that follows the MMDD format or 153?

    There is!

    Sunday, June 4, 2023 is Sivan 15 per the Essene calendar and is Omer Day 50 or Shavuot (Pentecost). This is NOT Shavuot on the civil calendar as it is keyed off of a different interpretation of the Feast of First Fruits. The Essenes and Pharisees reckoned that day differently so Pentecost fell in different places.

    Jesus was crucified, died and rose again to fulfill the Scriptures and did so according to the calendar of the ruling party of the day. That was the Pharisees. Jesus, our High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek will come in His time. Indeed He will! According to the calendar of the Essenes to fulfill and demonstrate the full catch of 153 large fish? The Gentile Church and body of Christ?

    Perhaps...

    Shared for your consideration,

    1. ...and for a fun thought exercise, who do you think could be the other two disciples that were out on the lake that dark and early morning? My first guess would be Andrew and Phillip. Andrew because that is Simon Peter's brother and a fellow fisherman. Phillip as that is Nathanael's friend who introduced him to the Lord Jesus.

      How about you?

    2. ...and one thought about Phillip. Thinking in terms of the harpazo, was he not taken away after talking with the Ethiopian eunuch? (Acts 8:39) The Greek rendered as "carried away" is the word (ἥρπασεν).

      That's (G726) or what we call "harpazo".

      It is an interesting possibility and gives food for thought!

      Happy hunting!!

    3. Correction: "If so, then that could suggest a 2023 harpazo. Is there a date that fits the Biblical narrative of (John 20) for a harpazo on a significant date in 2023 that follows the MMDD format or 153?"

      ...should read,

      John 21 not John 20.

      Proof-readers untie!

  40. @Pastor Rich I have to pass on some unbearably sad news today. Robert "Robbie" Tesini was found deceased by the Westfield police department Monday afternoon. There are few details but the Hampden District Attorney has opened an investigation. Pastor Rich, Robbie was from Westfield Massachusetts. You can look for news on wwlp.com, masslive.com and westernmassnews.com. Our community is devastated. Mark Joseph

    1. Oh, no. I was hopeful that he wasn't from the NE US but knew in my heart he was where the weather has been so brutal. Yes, unbearably sad and wholly preventable. Will be praying for his friends and family.

      Thank you for the links and update. Now I know.

      May you rest in the arms of the LORD Himself Robbie. I will make for you a very special serving of Kingdom cake when I join you in glory.

  41. TIME FOR MY LATEST STUDY MODEL (Update)

    Bottom posting this as it was also added (above) in my thread on this topic...

    This morning I was given another piece of what *may* be the puzzle pointing to the Day of our Blessed Hope.

    2022 was a very special year for me on my birthday. This is the day when Venus and Jupiter met as a morning star event. The Bethlehem Star. Venus was the bright morning star, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn were all lined up across the early morning sky is a fabulous procession! Seeing it under clear skies nothing short of a perfect birthday gift from the LORD!

    (John 21) has been part of my focus in studying the Day of our Blessed Hope. I believe that this chapter is a picture of the harpazo to come with the 153 large fish emblematic of the child of the woman that is caught up to God and His throne (Revelation 12:5).

    The number "153" has been stuck in my head for some time given that it is much like the dates constructs given in (Leviticus 23) for the times of the appointed feasts given by DDMM in the TNK (Tanakh). The 15th day of the third month on the calendar of the Essenes is always Shavuot (Pentecost). This is totally different than the calendar of the Pharisees. This suggested and brought to mind the question, "is God pointing us to Pentecost on the Essene calendar? The calendar of the Zadok priests?"

    I think there is reason to believe He is.

    If 153 were a reference and pointer to Pentecost what more do we find?

    This year (2022) counting from the Spring Day of Remembrance (New Year's Day on the Essene calendar) to the advent of the Bethlehem Star was 37 days or 888 hours. Thirty-seven is a watermark number in Scripture and equivalent to 888 hours. Eight-hundred, eighty-eight is the number of the Name Jesus (Ιησούς) in Greek! (Remember, Greek letters are numbers just as it is in Hebrew). Pentecost was then 37-days (888 hours) after the Bethlehem Star in April of this year. A perfect and peculiar pattern!

    When I found this fact via my last model I was left asking, "is Pentecost of 2022 the Day of our Blessed Hope?" It had the features of being the Day. It was not only Pentecost on the Essene calendar but according to all of the calendars.

    As striking as this find was we are still here.

    Add this piece to the puzzle from this morning,

    10 The LORD said,

    "I will surely return to you about
    this time next year, and Sarah
    your wife shall have a son."

    (Genesis 18:10a ESV)


    The Genesis account of the announcement of the promised birth of Isaac comes ONE YEAR BEFORE HIS BIRTH!! Could the same be true of us? What was the promise God gave Abraham about the number of his children? Are we not also children of Abraham? Spiritual children? Indeed we are...and if so then Sarah is the woman who brings to birth the male child.

    Was the seed of the woman, the birth of the man-child of (Revelation 12) declared in the heavens ONE YEAR before the actual event?

    Counting from Pentecost (Shavuot) 2022 what do we find about a year later? Pentecost 2023. That's June 4, 2023 on the Essene calendar. (Keep in mind the Essenes had a different interpretation of the Feast of First Fruits).

    "I will surely return to you about this time next year and Sarah your wife [the woman] shall have a son."

    The male child of the father of us all was foretold one year before his birth. May the same be true of the man-child of the woman of (Revelation 12)?

    Glory to God in the Highest!!!

    2. A greater study of Isaac seems in order. Isaac, the first born of the matriarch of the nations (Sarah), second born of the father of the nations (Abraham), though he was placed on the altar as sacrifice, G-d spared Him in lieu of a better offering. So many parallels to us in Christ the suffering King. Priest forever, Son of God.

      "So the last will be first,
      and the first last."

      RED LETTERS (Matthew 20:16 CSB)
