Understanding the Birth of A Savior-Life is Heavens Womb…The Predecessor to Eternity

“THE END OF THE STORY”

WHAT IS IT,” asked the teacher, “that makes a story good or bad, happy or sad? What if I told you the story of a man hated by his own family, sold into slavery, taken to a foreign land, thrown into a prison for a crime he didn’t commit, and forgotten by man and, it seems, by God. What kind of story would you say it is?”

“A sad story. A story of injustice and oppression . . . a tragedy.”

“But the story is from the Book of Genesis. And the man is Joseph. And He will end up being released from prison, given a position of great honor, saving Egypt from famine, and being reconciled to his family. Now would you still say the story is sad and tragic?”

“No. I would say the story is one of triumph.”

“And you would be right,” he said. “The parts of a story are not all of equal weight. ”

“A happy story with a tragic end is not a happy story, but a tragic one. A tragic story with a triumphant ending is not a tragic story, but a triumphant one. You can never judge a story by its beginning or middle, or by any of its parts before its ending. It is the ending of the story that determines everything that went before it. Always remember that. The nature of the story is determined by its end . . . so too the story of your life. You can never judge your story by your current circumstances or problems. And as long as you’re on earth, you haven’t seen the end of the story.”

“So then one can never know what kind of story you’re in.”

“Not so,” said the teacher. “If you’re a child of God, the end of the story is revealed.”

“Which is . . .”

“Victory, restoration, triumph, blessing, joy, and glory. And it is that end that makes your life a good story, a wonderful story. Therefore, when you look at your life, see everything in the light of that ending . . . every problem, every defeat, every sorrow, every failure, every evil . . . they’re only the components of a story of triumph and glory. Fix your eyes on the end of the story. And press on to that end. For it is that end that makes your story and your life . . . a great one.”

The Mission: No matter what you’re going through today or in your life, believe, look to, and live in confidence to the end of the story.

“HEAVEN’S WOMB”-Key to Understanding…

WE HAD BEEN observing one of the tent villages when suddenly the stillness was suddenly broken by a burst of high-pitched cries of excitement.

“Birth,” said the teacher. “Do you remember when we saw the woman sitting by the tent door, the one who was expecting? That’s the sound of celebration for her newborn baby.”
It was some time before people began emerging from the tent, first a middle-aged woman, a friend or relative of the mother, cradling the newborn baby boy.

“Do you remember when I spoke of the child in the womb . . . how that child would never be able to make sense of his life in the womb, because the womb was not the world he was made for, but the place of preparation for the world he was made for? It wasn’t just a revelation about heaven. It was a revelation about this world . . . and about your life. When Messiah spoke of what comes after this world, He spoke of it as the day we ‘enter life.’ Think about it . . . to enter life. If we will enter life then, then what is this present life?”

“It must be pre-life,” I said.

“Yes,” he said. “Pre-life . . . pre-birth. In fact, it is written in the Scriptures that ‘the whole creation groans and labors with birth pains together until now.’ This entire life is prenatal. Do you know what this life really is?”

“What?”

“The womb of heaven,” he said. “This life is heaven’s womb. It’s not what you’re destined for. It’s not your home. It’s the place of your preparation for the place you are destined for. As the womb was to prepare you for this life . . . this life is to prepare you for what is yet to come. As an unborn child can never understand or judge his life by the womb, neither can you understand or judge your life by your present circumstances . . . but only by that which they are preparing you for . . . heaven. And God will use everything of this world, and everything in your life, the joys and the sorrows, the victories and the losses, the mountains and the valleys, all of it, to prepare you, to grow you, and to form you into the child of heaven you are yet to become. From here on, see this world and your life as it actually is, and let it prepare you for the life beyond this life, and the world beyond this world, that you would be ready on that day . . . when you leave this world . . . and are born to eternity. For everything you’ve known of this world and of your life on earth . . . was none other than heaven’s womb.”

The Mission: Take part in a new revelation—see everything in your life, as your preparation for eternal life. See this life as the womb of heaven. And live your life accordingly.

The Invisible Eternal Planet

“GOD ON THE BLUE PLANET

IT WAS EVENING. We sat on a hill overlooking the school. The stars appeared particularly bright and clear that night.

“Imagine,” said the teacher, “that we came from somewhere out there in the universe. And we heard that the God of the universe had visited this one particular planet, this blue planet . . . earth. Imagine we heard it reported that He walked among its people as one of them. And so we came to find out which life it was that He lived. How would we find that Person?”

“He would have the nature of God,” I said. “He would be the epitome of goodness. He would be holy, righteous, loving. And He would be humble, because humility is part of goodness. And He would exist to do good. His life would be about giving of Himself. His life would be a gift. It would answer the needs of man and give life to everyone it touched.”

“What else would it be?” he asked.

“It would have to be a unique life, the most unique life. It would have the greatest impact on this world of any life. It would be like a rock thrown onto the waters of a lake. It would cause reverberations throughout the world . . . throughout time. It would change the course of history and the world.”

“And would everyone love and praise this life?” he asked.

“No,” I replied. “Since it was a fallen world, He would be both loved and hated. The forces of darkness would be against Him. He would become the focal point of all evil. And being the incarnation of good, He would have to come against evil. And being God, He would have to overcome it . . . If God came down to earth, then His life would have to become the most central life ever lived on this planet.”

“So,” said the teacher, “if God were to come down to this planet . . . then God has already come down to this planet. That’s something to celebrate. And how incredible that we could even come to know such a One . . . and that such a One would call us friend. And if we should have the life of that One inside of us, then . . .”

“What kind of life should we be living?” I said. “A life of goodness and holiness, a life of giving and selflessness, that answers the needs of those around us, that goes against the flow of this world, that overcomes evil, and that makes a difference for having been lived.”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “So live that life . . . as if the life of God was, through your life, walking among us on the blue planet . . . and it will be so.”

The Mission: Make it your aim this day to live the life of God in this world. Live to bless, to fill, to save, to overcome, and to change the world.

John 15:14–16; Ephesians 1:20–21; Colossians 1:10–11; Hebrews 13:8”

“THE OTHER THROUGH THE ONE

THE DAY WAS sunny with a cool afternoon breeze. We were walking through a garden of olive trees, the leaves of which were rustling in the wind.

“A mystery,” said the teacher. “Listen to these words written by the apostle: ‘For as woman came from man, even so man comes through woman.’ What does it mean?”

“‘As woman came from man’ . . . So from Adam came Eve. But after that, every man comes into the world through a woman . . . ‘so man comes through woman.’”

“It’s a circle of love,” he said, “a circle of being. The one comes from the other and the other comes through the one. They each come through the other. And yet it contains an even deeper mystery. Adam was created in the image of God, the visible reflection of the invisible realities of God. So if from Adam came Eve, if from the man came the woman, then what is this a reflection of? What then came from God?”

“The creation came from God,” I replied.

“So the one came from the other,” said the teacher, “but the mystery, then the other must come through the one. So if the creation came from God, then . . .”
“Then God . . . must come through the creation.”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “As man comes through woman who came from man, so God must come through the creation that came from Him . . . And so God is born among us. And the circle is complete.”

“Israel,” I said. “Israel also came from God. So as the man comes through the woman, so the God of Israel must come through Israel . . . God must be born of Israel.”
He paused, looked into my eyes, and said, “And what else comes from God?”

“We do,” I said. “We came into existence from God.”

“The one from the other and the other from the one. So what about you?”

“I came into existence from God. Therefore, it’s only complete if God is born through me.”

“You exist from Him . . . that He might exist through you. And what is salvation? It is exactly that. It is this mystery. It is God come through you who came from Him . . . His life now born through your life. And that is the purpose of your life. So make this your aim: Let God come through you. Let His love, His goodness, His nature, His presence, let His life come through your life . . . the one from the other and the other through the one. And then the circle . . . is complete.”

The Mission: Take part in the mystery today. Let the life, the love, the goodness, the power, and the presence of God, through your life, be born.

Genesis 2:21–23; 1 Corinthians 11:11–12; Ephesians 5:25–32”

Omega of BC and Alpha of AD

The Book of “Mysteries” by Jonathan Cahn

“THE BRIDE IN THE TENT

BEHOLD THE CALAH,” said the teacher, as he drew my attention to a young woman in the tent village. “It’s how you say the bride in Hebrew. Do you remember when the bridegroom made his visit? It was for her.”

“And yet she’s still here,” I said. “She’s the bride but not yet married.”

“In the Hebrew wedding, the bridegroom journeys to the house of the bride. There, in that house or tent, the covenant is made. They are from that moment on considered bride and groom, husband and wife. But the bridegroom must then leave the bride and her house and journey back to where he came from. The two are joined in the covenant of marriage. But they don’t see each other until the day of the wedding. They spend their time preparing for that day.”

“But for the bride, it seems as if nothing’s changed. She still lives with her family in that tent. She’s still doing her daily chores. Her surroundings are the same. Her life is the same. She’s married, but what’s changed?”
“She’s changed,” he said. “She is now the calah!”
“I don’t understand.”

“Two thousand years ago the Bridegroom journeyed to the house of the bride, God journeyed to this world, to our house, to our lives. And, likewise, it was to make a covenant. According to the mystery, the bridegroom must leave the bride’s house and return home. So Messiah then left this world to return to His dwelling place. So these now are the days of the separation. The Groom now dwells in His house, heaven. And the bride dwells in her house, this world. So we, the bride, now dwell in this house, this world. So you, in your life, still dwell in the same tent. That which is around you still looks the same and feels the same. Your life, your circumstances may look unchanged. But something very big has changed . . . you . . . not the tent . . . not the world around you . . . but you. And thus you are no longer of the world. You belong to the Bridegroom. You’re free. You’re the calah!”

The Mission: Live this day as the bride in the tent—as one no longer bound by your circumstances, but belonging to the Bridegroom—free of this world.

John 17:9–18; 2 Corinthians 11:12; 1 Peter 2:11–12”

“THE MYSTERY OF SUMMER

THE DAY WAS hot and marked by the gusts of scorching desert wind. We were sitting on a hill overlooking a field that belonged to one of the agricultural settlements. It was now filled with laborers harvesting its grain.

“The age has unfolded,” said the teacher, “according to the mystery of the Hebrew calendar, with each prophetic event foreshadowed by a Hebrew holy day. But where in the age are we now?”

“Where did we leave off?” I asked.

“What was the last of the Hebrew holy days to have already been fulfilled?”

“Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost.”

“So then, if we want to know where we are in the age, we have to look at what took place in the Hebrew year after Shavuot, Pentecost. At the end of Shavuot, the Hebrews went out from Jerusalem to their fields and vineyards to reap the long summer harvest. They would labor throughout the summer months until the return of the holy days in autumn. They would then finish the harvest and return again to gather before the Lord in Jerusalem.”

“So if Pentecost, Shavuot, was the last holy day to be fulfilled, then . . .”

“Then now is the summer of the age, now is the time of the summer harvest. Just as Shavuot was the time of going forth from Jerusalem out to the fields of harvest, so it was on Shavuot, Pentecost, two thousand years ago, that the apostles went forth from Jerusalem to bring salvation to the ends of the earth. The field is the world . . . the season is the age . . . and the harvest is salvation, the gathering in of new life. And what did Messiah say of the present age?”

“He said that now was the time of the harvest . . . the time to go out and reap.”

“And did you know that in Hebrew the word for harvest, kayitz, also means the summer? So we are now in the summer of the age, the summer harvest. And that means that your primary goal must be to reap eternal life, to spread the word of salvation, to go out into world and save the lost. Make that your aim. For the days of the harvest are numbered. And the time to reap new life and save the lost comes only once. Therefore, go out and reap all you can in the time you have . . . until we all appear in Jerusalem . . . at summer’s end.”

The Mission: It is the summer of the age. Make it your aim this day to reap the harvest all around you. Bring forth salvation and bring in eternal life.

Proverbs 10:5; John 4:35–36; Matthew 9:37–38

“THE ALPHA OMEGA MAN

WE WERE SITTING on the sandy plain just beyond the school grounds. Using a wooden stick, the teacher began drawing symbols in the sand. The first appeared to be the capital letter A. The second looked something like a horseshoe.

“In Isaiah 44,” he said, “it is written, ‘I am the First and the Last. Apart from me there is no God.’ God is the First of existence and the Last. And this,” he said, pointing to the first symbol, “is the Alpha, the first letter of the Greek alphabet. And this,” he said, pointing to the second, “is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, the Omega. These are the symbols of God. God is the Alpha, the Beginning of all things, and the Omega, the End of all things . . . the Alpha and the Omega, the source of all existence . . . and its object. So, in the last chapter of the last book of the Bible, the Book of Revelation, it is written, ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.’”

“As in Isaiah,” I said.

“Yes, but in the Book of Revelation the words are specifically referring to Messiah. He is the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega.”

“I guess He’d have to be.”

“So what would happen if the Alpha and Omega came into the world?”

“He would become the Alpha and the Omega of the world?”

“He would become the Alpha and Omega of history . . . of time. His presence would cause time to divide and history to split in two. He would become the Omega, the End, of one age, and the Alpha, the Beginning, of the other . . . BC and AD . . . the Omega of BC and the Alpha of AD. He becomes the Alpha and Omega of history . . . and the Alpha and Omega of all who find Him. He divides, in the same way, the history of our lives. He becomes the Omega, the End, of our lives, our BC . . . and the Alpha, the Beginning, the new beginning of our AD . . . the new birth.”

The teacher then drew a line in the sand joining the Alpha and the Omega. “All time proceeds from the Alpha to the Omega. So the secret is . . . receive each moment of your life from Him the Alpha . . . and live each moment to Him the Omega. For He is the Alpha and Omega of existence . . . and the Alpha and the Omega . . . of you.”

The Mission: This day make Him your Alpha. Receive every moment from Him. And live every moment to Him as your Omega.

Two Great Mysteries Revealed

“THE MYSTERY OF THE EIGHTH DAY

HE TOOK ME back into the Chamber of Scrolls, approached the ark, removed the scroll, rolled it out on the table to the passage he was looking for, then began translating it aloud: “‘You will celebrate the feast of the Lord for seven days, with a complete rest on the first day and a complete rest on the eighth day.’ It’s speaking of the Feast of Tabernacles,” he said. “But there’s something strange about it. It says you will celebrate the feast for seven days, with a rest on the Eighth Day. How do you get an Eighth Day from a seven-day feast? Seven is the number of the days in the feast and the days of creation. Every week has seven days. So then what is the Eighth Day?”

“There is no Eighth Day.”

“No,” said the teacher. “And yet there is. If the seventh day speaks of the end, then of what does the Eighth Day speak?”

“The day . . . after the end?”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “Eight speaks of that which comes after the end.”

“But nothing can come after the end . . . or it wouldn’t be the end.”

“Exactly,” he replied. “That’s the point. It contradicts everything else. Seven is the number of the days of the creation. But eight is the number that transcends the creation, that breaks out of time . . . the number beyond numbers, of time beyond time.”
“And so what exactly happens on the Eighth Day of the feast?”
“It’s a mystery,” he said. “It’s called Shemini Atzeret. It means the Gathering of the Eighth Day. The Feast of Tabernacles is the last of the holy days appointed by God, the final feast. So it speaks of what happens after the end of the end . . . after the end of days . . . the end of time. 

It’s the very last of  God’s appointed days . . . the mystery day. And we who belong to God, we are of that day. And when the creation ends, we will enter it. We will enter the day beyond days, when the finite yields to the infinite . . . the age beyond ages . . . eternity.”
He paused for a moment before continuing, “And one more secret.”

“What?”

“Those who live in the Spirit can partake of the Eighth Day . . . even now.”

“How can you do that . . . before the end?”

“Go beyond the end . . . even now . . . beyond the end of your own self . . . and you’ll find out.”

The Mission: Seek today to live beyond your circumstances, beyond the world, beyond the finite, in the day beyond days, in the Eighth Day…

Leviticus 23:39; Romans 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:1–6; Revelation 20:11”

“THE SECRET ISRAEL

WE WERE WATCHING a shepherd leading his flock through a long canyon when we noticed a second flock and shepherd descending the bordering hills to join them. The two flocks then converged as one.

“Two peoples of God,” said the teacher, “have shared this world for the last two thousand years: the children of Israel, the Jewish people, and the followers of Messiah, the Christians, the church. For most of that time they have been at enmity with each other, each seeing the other as an alien presence. But the two are joined together in a mystery. Messiah is the Shepherd of Israel. But He is also the Shepherd of those who follow Him from all nations, the church. So He told His Jewish disciples: ‘I have other sheep that are not of this pen . . .’”
“So the church and Israel are two flocks . . . yet with the same Shepherd . . . Messiah.”

“But the mystery goes even deeper,” said the teacher. “In the Book of Ephesians it is written that the one who follows Messiah, the true Christian, has become a fellow citizen in the commonwealth of Israel. Thus the two are joined together. The church is, in reality. . . a Jewish entity. It doesn’t replace Israel, but complements it. The church is, in spirit, Jewish. It is the Israel of Spirit. What the Jewish people are in flesh and blood and in the realm of the physical, the church is . . . in the realm of the spirit. To the one people belongs a Promised Land of earth; to the other a Promised Land of heaven. To the one belongs a Jerusalem of mountains and stone; to the other, the Jerusalem above. The one is a people physically gathered out from the nations; the other, a people spiritually gathered. The one is born of the promise through flesh and blood; the other, born by the Spirit. The one constitutes the family of Messiah of flesh and blood; the other, His family by spirit. The one reaps a harvest of fruit and grain; the other a harvest of eternal life. And as the spirit is joined to the body, so the two are by nature intrinsically bound.”

“But the two have been separated,” I said.

“Yes,” said the teacher, “to the detriment of each. But the consummation of the one will not come without the other, nor the fulfillment of the other without the one. For when the spirit and the body are separated, it is death. But when the spirit and the body are again united, what is it?”

“Life,” I said. “It is life from death.”

The Mission: Today, seek to find the riches of the Jewish roots of your faith and your secret identity as a spiritual Hebrew, an Israelite of God.

God’s Flock…

Seeing the World Through God’s Eyes…Judgment Upon Mankind…
 
God uses the goat to symbolize evil in numerous instances in the Bible. In Zechariah 10:3 (KJV) He says He will punish the goats. In Matthew 25:31-46 Christ’s Parable of the Sheep and the Goats tells of His return and of judging the nations. In verse 33 He says, “And He [Christ] will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” The sheep are then given eternal life, but the goats are cast into the Lake of Fire. It should be abundantly clear from this section of Scripture that we want the attributes of sheep and not those of goats! (Pay attention)
 
Isaiah 14:9-14
 
“Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet at thy coming: it started up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou become like unto us? They pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou “cut down to the ground” (Symbolic of the current events…), which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high…”
 
Zechariah 10:3
 
“Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock (sheep) the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in battle…”
 
Leviticus 17:7
 
And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be STATUTE for ever unto them throughout their generations…”
 
Micah 1:16
 
Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy baldness as the “eagle”; for they are gone into captivity from thee…”
 
Amos 8:10
 
“And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an “only son” (only begotten son…), and the end thereof as a bitter day…”
 
This verse describes the mourning heart of Jesus for His Father to be exalted…baldness and shaving can be understood as an act of dedication to serving God…”regrowth” is always in the mind of God…just as “rebirth” (like a child’s first burst of hair…) is the key to understanding the Kingdom of God…as soft and delicate as a lamb…symbolism is key…

The 3,000 Year Old Mystery…

Chapter 24-The Mystery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery

THAT WHICH LIES AHEAD

The Eyes of the Prophet

THE PROPHET GAZED into the smoldering ruins of the holy city. He had been given warning by God and had, in turn, given warning to his nation. But they didn’t listen. They cast him into prison and continued on their course of defiance until the judgment finally came.

The year 586 BC was one of history’s turning points. Jeremiah was there to see it firsthand just as he was there to foretell it. As he now beheld the desolation of the holy city, he could not escape grappling with a mystery begun many centuries earlier in the wilderness of Sinai. The Law of Moses had foretold the day of destruction. According to the ancient words, the people would be sent into exile and the land would rest. And the time of that rest and desolation would be determined by the number of Sabbath years, the Shemitahs, the nation had broken.
As he surveyed the city of God now lying still and silent—desolate and devoid of its ”

“inhabitants—the prophet wept and pondered the mystery of the covenant. He knew that the word shemitah meant “the release.” And now the land had been released. He knew also that it signified “the letting fall.” And now God had allowed the holy city to fall and the kingdom of Judah itself to collapse. The prophet could now only wonder how the ancient mystery of the Shemitah could have so determined the fate of his nation.

The Mystery of the Shemitah

We now stand two and a half thousand years later, pondering the same mystery as pondered by the prophet in the ruins. We also may wonder how such an ancient mystery has so determined the course of nations, world markets, empires, and history. And as the prophet saw the mystery become flesh- and-blood reality in his own life and time when the cataclysm fell upon the land, it is now for us as well to bring the mystery home to our day and age, to see what it may hold and reveal concerning the future of America and the world.

We have seen an ancient ordinance of Scripture concerning a seventh year of rest and a “Day of Remission transform into a mystery. We have observed the mystery growing larger in scope and dimensions to the point of involving the destruction of an ancient city and the exile of its people to a foreign land. We have moved forward in time to find the same mystery spanning thousands of years and operating in the modern world. We have witnessed its dynamics at work in the financial and economic realms, determining the rising and crashing of world markets, the economies of modern nations, and the greatest collapses in financial history. We have seen it coalesce with a mystery of towers, again joined to the dynamics of rising and falling. And we have watched it move on the stage of world history, determining the rise and fall of nations, the ascendancy of world powers and the collapse of empires.

The Quickening

What about the future? And why might the mystery of the Shemitah be especially relevant to our day and the days to come?

In the last two of the Shemitah’s cycles, those ending in 2001 and 2008, we have noticed a number of significant developments. First, the timing has become amazingly precise. Both of the last two greatest stock market point crashes in history have occurred on the exact same Hebrew day and the Shemitah’s exact same climactic Day of Remission and Nullification. The phenomenon appears, in its last manifestations, to have grown increasingly precise and dramatic.

Second, the phenomenon of the last two cycles was begun and triggered by one of the most dramatic events of modern times: 9/11. If it were not for 9/11, the ancient mystery would not have manifested. If it were not for the exact timing of 9/11, the timing of the stock market crash of 2001 would not have happened when it did at the time and in the exact hours of the Shemitah’s climactic conclusion.

Third, the amazing precision of the Shemitah’s last two occurrences are connected to the manifestation of harbingers, prophetic signs concerning the judgment of a nation—namely, America. Combine this with the fact that the Shemitah, in Scripture, manifests as a sign of national judgment—and we have a convergence of alarms.
Since we are dealing with the issue of judgment, our first question must be this: What has happened to America in the time of these last two cycles in which the phenomenon has intensified?

The Deepening

Though in the wake of 9/11 Americans gathered in houses of worship across the land and it appeared as if there would be a national return to God—it never came. In place of the revival was a spiritual and moral apostasy that was unprecedented in its scope and accelerating pace. There was now increasing talk concerning the end of “Christian America.” Polls noticed a growing departure from biblical ethics and values. The turn was most pronounced among the younger generation, portending a future of even greater moral and spiritual departure.

In the fall of ancient Israel the nation decided it could rewrite morality and change what was good and evil, sin and righteousness—so too in America. What had once been recognized as right was now attacked as evil, and what had once been recognized as sin was now celebrated as a virtue. Morals, standards, and values that had undergirded not only the nation’s foundation, but also the foundation of Western civilization and civilization itself, were increasingly overturned, overruled, and discarded. And those who would not go along with the change—who merely continued to uphold that which had once been universally upheld—were now increasingly marginalized, vilified, condemned by the culture and the state, and persecuted.

And not only did the blood of unborn children continue to flow, as it did in ancient Israel, but the number of those killed was now well over fifty million, a population of many Israels. The nation’s moral descent had now reached the point where the government was seeking to force those who held to God’s Word to go against that Word, punishing resistance with fines, damages, and condemnation. Any deviation from the new ethics of apostasy was swiftly punished. At the same time, the name of God increasingly became the object of attack, mockery, and blasphemy.

The Dark City on the Hill

It seemed as if every day a new threshold of apostasy and moral descent had been crossed. America was in moral and spiritual collapse and rapidly transforming into the dark opposite of the “city on a hill,” the “holy commonwealth” it had been founded to be. It had been founded to be. It had now entered the territory of ancient Israel’s apostasy—a nation to which the prophets cried out:

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.

—ISAIAH 5:20

And that was the point. America, having been formed after the pattern of ancient Israel, was now following in the course of Israel’s apostasy. Thus it could be no accident that the same harbingers that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel were now reappearing in America. And each of those harbingers was warning of a coming judgment. Worse than that, America was responding to those warnings with the same defiance as had ancient Israel before judgment fell.”

ONE LAST MYSTERY: The SEVENTH SHEMITAH

 

The Jubilee

ONE LAST MYSTERY—and one that reveals not only the Shemitah’s prophetic nature but also its dynamic of redemption.

In the Bible every seventh day is a Sabbath day. Every seventh year is a Shemitah or Sabbath year. And every seventh Shemitah leads into the year called “Jubilee.” The Jubilee always follows the Year of the Shemitah.

And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month . . .

—LEVITICUS 25:8–9

The word jubilee has come to mean a time of celebration or anniversary. But in Hebrew, the word is yobel. Yobel means “trumpet blast.” The Jubilee was heralded with sounding of the trumpet throughout the land. (Pay Attention…)

The Year of Setting Free

As the crowning of the seventh Shemitah, or the seventh cycle of seven years, the Jubilee was something of a super Shemitah. It was the Shemitah taken to a new level. In the Year of the Shemitah the land rested—so too in the Year of Jubilee:

That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine.

—LEVITICUS 25:11

In the Year of the Shemitah came release. But in the Year of Jubilee the release took on new meaning. It was not simply the letting go of land or debt. In the Jubilee, slaves and prisoners were set free. It was thus the year of liberty:

And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants.

—LEVITICUS 25:10

 

The Year of Restoration and Coming Home

For those in debt the Shemitah brought restoration as all debts were wiped away. But in the Jubilee the restoration involved even more:

It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. . . . In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.

—LEVITICUS 25:10, 13

If one had lost one’s inheritance or the inheritance of one’s family, in the Year of Jubilee it would be restored. The Jubilee was the year of restoration, the year of reconciliation, and the year of return. In the Jubilee, if others had taken possession of one’s land, they had to relinquish it. The Jubilee saw individuals returning to their families, families returning to their ancestral homes and lands, possessions returning to their owners, and the dispossessed returning to their inheritances.

No one today knows for sure when the Year of Jubilee falls….-…

The Connection Between the Beast and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil…The Fall of Mankind…

Understanding the Doom of the Dragon, the “Beast” (Key Point: Symbolism…the mind of God…) and the False Prophet…(One World Religion-Radical Islam)

I would like to welcome all of you to this seminar, entitled, “The Beast: The Summary of The Seven Heads and Ten Horns.” This seminar is derived from the five-part seminar series “The Rising of The Beast Out of The Sea,” and is designed to give you a complete overview of the beast in Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 1, which reads:

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

This is one Scripture that will leave you mystified, if you don’t understand all of its symbolism in totality. (Key Point: “We have believed all kinds of things when it comes to this beast…”) Some of us may even be looking to see something like a big red dragon with wings and a serpent’s tongue, scales like a lizard, and claws like an eagle coming up out of the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Well, today, we are here, once and for all, to dispel all false theories, and to reveal the truth of what this really means: from His rise out of the sea, seven heads, ten horns, and ten crowns, right down to the very names of blasphemy that are upon his heads.

 

Let us begin our journey through this Scripture with the phrase, “…and saw a beast rise up out of the sea (lake)….” In this phrase, we received a shocking revelation. We found that the word sea (s-e-a) derived from the word see (s-e-e-). As we studied this word from its etymological rendition, we found that the sea, from which the beast would rise up out of, is actually the See of Rome or the Roman Catholic Church….(Think About It for a minute…How do we connect the religion of Islam with churches that have been corrupted? not only the Roman Catholic Church, but ALL churches…)

Key Point: Other convincing documentation from our research of the word “sea” proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the rise of the beast out of the sea is all about establishing a one world religion-Islam….How might you envision this beast rising up out of the sea or lake?

And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast…

The word worship means “to take part in religious services.” Accordingly, we received the knowledge that those who take part in the religious services of the dragon are, indeed, worshippers of the “anti- christ.” So, our question was, Who is the dragon? The word dragon was defined as a mythical monster. When we broke down the words mythical and monster, we learned that the dragon is the supreme head of the One World Religion that claims to promote peace but is sheer deception and the worst of abominations to God and His Son…Note: Who have been crucified by this beast and who His Son has battled this entire time…”IF” he were here on earth…

 

Within the phrase, “…and ten horns…,” was identified a crucial event that shall usher in the New World Order. This crucial event that is forthcoming will be the turning point, and will result in a grave consequence: “a time of Great Trouble.”

We also went to (Key Reference) Mark, Chapter 13, verse 19: 12

 

For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God, , created unto this time, neither shall be.

 

After this, we were left with no choice but to closely examine the phrase, “…and upon his horns ten crowns….” In this phrase, we found that horns has a total different meaning than that of the “ten horns.” Horns, in this phrase, disclosed to us that President George W. Bush is concerned with a group of nations (An Entity)/ (or leaders/heads of different nations) that are in the same area (Think about it…The Best Way to conceal the identity of the beast would be for it to exist the place you would least expect it…US soil possibly..,) and he shall take on an aggressive attitude against them, and shall even go to war with them. To understand why he is going to war with a group of nations that are in the same area, we examined his “aggressive” attitude.

 

The answer as to why we should not be afraid of their terror, neither be troubled as we suffer for righteousness’ sake is found in Romans, Chapter 8, verses 17 and 18:

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint- heirs with Christ, ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together. If we suffer with , we shall also be glorified with Him. Continue with Verse 18:

 

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

The suffering, pain, distress, injury, and loss that we shall undergo, endure, and be subjected to in this present time is not even worthy enough to be compared to the GLORY which shall reveal in us.

We found out that upon his heads, which are the top officials of the FBI, Department of Justice, and the CIA–John Ashcroft, George J. Tenet, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and Donald Rumsfeld–could they have been forced to to publish inaccurate news about us; to generate false reports, create made up videotapes, and develop fake photographs of us. ( Money and Power….Remove it and what do you have?) 

 

When we reveal to the world the handwriting on the wall (which we are already doing on the Internet), it served as a sign to President George W. Bush that his kingdom is just about FINISHED. Quite frankly, no one wanted to be persuaded that the end of  the kingdom is at hand, and neither does anyone want us to persuade the masses with our overwhelming evidence of truth about America as written in the Holy Bible.

Even more, regardless of the evil reports, made up videotapes, and fake photographs that shall be manipulated, using high technology and sophisticated computerization, to portray us as evil, has reserved those of us who truly belong to Him to not be moved by this slander campaign (Signs and Wonders). For we–the true followers of Christ- know that this slander campaign is not worthy neither can it be compared to the “glory” that shall be revealed in us…”We” who have remained true until the end…the called and the chosen…

This concludes our overview of Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 1. I hope that this has given everyone a broad overview of the events that are SOON to come upon us. And I pray that we will all be strong and courageous to stand against what is ahead. May the Holy Spirit be upon all of us to direct us, bless us, and keep us. Shalom…

You see, the Son of God, was called and chosen to be the one who would reveal all of this information and the identity of the monstrous entity that has deceived the entire world…

Key Note: The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil…Could we combine this reference to the beast to the fall of mankind? Could we use the color code to help us identify the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? Religious affiliation in our MODERN world…

Think about it like this…What color was Kryptonite? and what effect did it have upon Superman? The Savior of the World? There was a Brilliant mind behind it all…

Pay Attention: (End Times Prophecy)

Revelation 2:13

“I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelt…”

(Jesus understands this entity better than anyone because he has experienced it during his crucifixion…)
