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.”

Epilogue, Part 2

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….-…

It Didn’t Happen By Chance…

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: Decoding the Presidential Seal (Pages 335-336…)

In order to better understand the world around us, we must take careful time to analyze symbols and to decode the mind behind nations across the world in order to understand God’s vision of the world. Studying Scripture allows us to see the world around us clearly and to avoid making the same mistakes time and time again. By seeking to study and implement God’s plan carefully, we will know how we must act in order to adhere to His desire for our world to change according to His ways and to get out of the situation that could result in eternal doom…

“And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child [Christ](What would an assault on the Son of God result in?)- Remember these words: “For those who understand the mind of God may comprehend…There were not two ways to do it and to get there…Alone, there is One God and His Son is the only door that you should want to walk through…all others lead to a spiritual death…You had and do have a choice…and ask yourself did you stand firm or did you sell out? That is how God will make a Final Judgement…”And the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, in order that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the serpent poured out water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river, which the dragon poured out of his mouth [deception]. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”

Revelation 12:13-17 (nasb) (emphasis added)

(335 John David Harwood)

Be sure to pay attention to the symbol on the seal of the President of the United States. Let us carefully analyze the image of the seal of the United States of America.

The eagle (until NOW), the woman… Babylon fallen? Ask and be true to yourself….This is a key point in seeing how the world that we live in has changed for the worse…

Anytime that a man of God has stood up for the truth of the Son of God, the Living Word of God, the system has forced our leaders to conform and to honor the number of  a man…(Prophecy)Revelation 13:18…this has gone on for so long that no one has been able to see clearly…no one has been able to change and take the power away from the Dragon and the beast…What has happened over time is that when a man of God (perhaps an Angel of Messenger of God) has attempted to inform the world of the current state that it is in, they have removed that individual from power…the master of illusion, Allah or Satan, has confused the world by signs and wonders…the fallen angel (s), jealous of God and His Son, are responsible for the presentation of deception…This is how the illusion works and how me must understand the Revelation of Jesus Christ…How do you know what is true and what is not? God knows EXACTLY who is responsible and who holds that power to confuse and distort the truth that would be an immediate threat to the existence of the powers (For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, principalities and powers that be)…

The olive branch was intended to symbolize a sense of peace, which in many regards could be false..How can we identify the false Christ? Recall internal acts of war within the United States and be mindful of the art of deception…the result of evil and many fallen angels…who can take many forms…this is what you MUST be aware of…

The full armor of God is what you must have…Ephesians 6:10-18….

“In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles [arrows] of the evil one…” (Ephesians 6:16, nasb, emphasis added).

Remember the burden that Jesus carries upon His shoulders, being the Lamb of God and rejected by the world without the one true God. You see, the beast has always intended  to destroy Jesus with acts of retaliation and hostility…However, “we” the people (The Body of Christ) know that the Lamb will overcome them, because He is the Son of God. This is where we must begin to force ourselves to trust the Bible and to rely on faith to carry you away in the Spirit to a place where we all gather before the end…

The key of this chapter is to override and do away with the deception. This chapter is intended to bring new meaning to symbols across the world, as well as in the United States of America. Clarity is the key to improvement...Hope and Change…

Perhaps, these words were written years ago by a very wise man…a man of God…who might that have been? 2012-2013Dreams….

(Key Note: An assault on a USSS agent is the same as an assault on the President Himself…This saying may go hand in hand with the Son of God and His Angels…Yet the consequences are much more severe for an attack on God Himself…)

History will not be allowed to repeat itself…The world will come to an end before that will ever be allowed…and “we” who discovered the truth will see a New Heavens and a New Earth…

The Life of Jesus

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ (2013)

Chapter: The Lake House of Jesus (Pages 29-30…)

In the book of Revelation we read, “And did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb, are its Temple.” (Revelation 21:22, niv).

“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it [Mecca]. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it. Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit.”

Matthew 7:13-17 (nasb) (emphasis added)

Know that Jesus chose to live in a tranquil and peaceful place far way from the distractions of the world. For Jesus was not of the world….

According to the Bible, Jesus’ ministry was centered around the Sea of Galilee…The Son of God spent most of his three years of ministry teaching along the shores of this fresh water lake…Here he taught more than half of his parables…and we cannot fathom how much how much his Father must have taught him while living by the water…Alone and with God…how many Revelations he must have had while the Angels ministered to him…But, on the other hand, how many battles he must have faced while learning the ways of the world…He probably has more understanding to the spiritual battles that people face than we can begin to imagine…battles in heavenly realms…

Jesus loves nature and enjoys the peace of rivers, lakes, and oceans…. Jesus lived on a lake and one that few would ever find or discover. It would only have been known to those who would seek Him out through God’s Word. This is why studying God’s Word is the key to discovering the Revelation of God’s Son.

In a modern world Jesus would have learned how  Mohammed and Islam attempted to lead society astray, through political schemes and distractions. Anything to keep society away from God’s Son or to confuse society, the Dragon, the beast, and the false prophet would have done so. They would have crucified him just as the world did during his first coming…

Know how much Jesus loves the nature of his people, including women who were extremely loyal to him…As opposed to Mohammed who would treat women as slaves, Jesus would embrace them with his whole heart…

Jesus loves the simplicity of life, yet he understands the modern world that we live in. In order to understand the sacred narrow path that we are to take, we are to always be aware that we should look to God for the answers. We must dialogue with God by reading His Word.

 

By bringing His Son into the world a second time to be the example, and asking nothing in return but for society to come to believe again, we see the humble truth behind God’s promise. God never breaks a promise. God does no get into a hurry to complete His work. God knows what is going to happen far in advance to when it finally does occur. It is our job to plan ahead and to anticipate God’s promise being fulfilled. We are to stay away from the traps that the wide gates lead us into. We are to recognize the Mecca of society. We need to recognize the Mecca of the United States that is not discussed. We need to see the true colors that we represent.

Jesus’s house and temple is full of color and design. Jesus is an artist and loves to write out his stories and thoughts in order for others to learn through him. This is the responsibility of each and every individual, to teach. We must be sure to teach carefully and not of the world but of God.

The key to unlocking all doors is by following Jesus’s instruction. He is in this with you, in order that you may be transformed and enlightened into a New World. Each and every person who believes is welcome in the house of Jesus. But, remember the Angels know who believes and who does not…He leaves the door open for you, and it is your decision… Jesus  is a humble helper who dedicated his life to sharing the meaning of life with the world…

In Jesus’s house there are many angels, and they guard and protect God’s people. These angels guard and watch over those who trust in God in every step that they take. Discovering Jesus’s house is the first step in the right direction. Find the way. Follow the path. Trust in God’s Son. Do not be afraid. He is here to protect you.

 

  • The Early Years (Pages…31-32…)

The early years of Jesus’s life consisted of his desire to seek out His own way and finally at the appointed time to discover His true identity. His early years were probably filled many of the same family dynamics that  many families here in the United States and all over the world have been forced to work through over the course of time.

I want to focus on the young Jesus who we know very little about… He probably rebelled just as many kids do these days. Jesus went through many of the same stages as children today, being forced to conform to the “cool” world. He learns how to adapt into a world that has no longer become the ideal utopian society that God intends for it to be but rather one that is of the world. Jesus learns the ways of the world, along with his tight group of friends that he grew up with…. We will learn about his “crew,” who we will soon see to be Disciples or Warriors of Christ.

This group of friends was tight. It is a group that always stands up for what is right, and regardless of what happens, their hearts are in the correct state, honoring God. Maintaining a pure heart and enjoying life is what God asks of us. God asks that we always maintain self-control. Jesus informs us to live it up and to not let anything hold us back from following our hearts. Jesus is here to inform you that we are all in this together to build a kingdom centered on God. We all have different roles in the big picture, but this is how we are going to roll. Discover that Holy Spirit, and hold on tight; the ride will be nothing short of spectacular!

 

This is a journey into the heart of man and his transformation into a heart of gold. This transformation that Jesus experiences is one that comes with much time and learning but one that needs to be discovered by all people in order that we may live in harmony together. Angels who have fallen will rise up again to seize the opportunity to take back what is rightfully yours, the inheritance of God’s kingdom.

Let us see how adaptation and forgiveness is a huge part of the life of Christ. Without being able to embrace the ability to adapt, how could Jesus ever be able to minister to people from all walks of life? I sometimes have to wonder how he would minister to the prostitutes and the people that no one else wanted anything to do with except by having to bring himself down and adapt to make them feel comfortable…Just to make them understand that he came to save and to give life in order that they would no longer be slaves…

His angels, who have been undercover in a sense, have always protected Jesus, and this is part of how he made it through life in a world that hated what he represented…just as we would see today… Understanding this concept allows us to better understand Jesus. Jesus grew up with a remarkable group of friends who will forever be a part of his life and who make him who he is today.

It is time for us to recognize that Jesus relates to all peoples. He wants to know your struggles and how he can help. He desires to open up doors that you could never see before. He wants to inform you of the truth that God reveals to him. He honors God and does not lie to God. He answers to God for all things. He knows that God cannot be fooled, and he attempts to help society understand that by attempting to try and fool the Son of God or to hide from God we are deceiving ourselves. God only asks one thing of us, and that is to ask for forgiveness so that we do not carry the burden and to love one another as we desire to be loved. We are to abide by the law ordained through Moses in the Ten Commandments, and we can transform society back to a state in which we are all safe and secure.

 

  • Trials of Jesus (Pages 33-35)

When we consider the early part of Jesus’s life, we ought to know that much of His life was being taught and introduced to the ways of the world. He was taught to learn how to not condemn the world but that the world might be saved through Him and His example. Jesus first came as the example of a servant rather than a king, who would one day reign.

Jesus knows the truth, yet He allows man to have free will and to make choices that result in their destiny. The destiny of man is dependent upon our walk with Christ. The words from a text written by man as opposed to those inspired by God stand out to Jesus. The words that are not of God are apparent to Jesus. He knows the truth and the reasoning behind reading Scripture.

Scripture is inspired by God the Father, creator of heaven and earth. What the Father communicates to the Son must be communicated to the world.The Holy Spirit must give sensibility, wisdom, and discernment in order that we may understand and see Jesus.

The Holy Spirit is without deceit and does not deceive. Jesus, in His divine form, is without deceit. The truth is that most of Jesus’s life has been spent being tested by man and tempted by Satan. Satan attempts to deceive through false context of His desire to cause man to rebel against God’s authority. God’s authority is supreme, and we are to abide by His commandments and statutes that He has placed before us.

 

His Son is here to inform us of what He sees and how it must be corrected in accordance with God’s Word. Jesus is the living Word of God and justs wants you to hear his voice in order that mankind can be saved. He doesn’t want to leave anyone behind… Man must no longer be lost, walking through life without perceiving in their minds and without hearing God’s voice in their hearts.

Without the direction from Jesus, how does the world know how to move forward? How will the world be able to come to know the schemes of the devil? How long must Jesus be kept silent? Jesus had to be a writer, and how much he must have kept sealed for us until his Father revealed it to the world…in order that we may see clearly. We must maintain the direction granted by God. God rewards every man according to His heart and knows every heart.

Jesus recognizes false prophets and teachers. Jesus sees the radical deception that man has been exposed to, and His hope is that He may help others to see the way of God as opposed to the way of false prophets.

Jesus loves to teach. Jesus is here to protect. Jesus is here to outline the Bible for you in order that you may have life through Christ. That life is one that is given to man by God the Father.

Jesus, I can imagine, has had a hard time understanding the world that man has created away from God. It is no longer a place of truth and awareness. It is a place where evil has deceived so many, and so many have become lost in their ways. Recognizing that God has sent His Son into the world of corruption is important to recognizing the repetition of history and the rejection of Jesus by His own people. History is repeating itself, and the politicians are once again rejecting the truth that God is communicating through His Son.

We need to see clearly and establish a society in which the discernment of the Holy Spirit is the controlling factor of our decisions from a global standpoint.

What is the second coming of Christ? How would you know Him? I ask you only this question: will you listen?

 

The Bible makes it crystal clear. If you believe, you know what is going on…

Jesus’s heart:

Blessed are those who can hear the voice of God and are able to visualize His creation.
Blessed are those who believe without seeing.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are the peacemakers.
Blessed are the humble.
Blessed are the loyal.
Blessed are those who adhere to God’s commandments.

Blessed are the ones who trust in the Lord God with all their hearts and minds.
Blessed are the beloved followers of Christ.
Blessed are the righteous.
Blessed are the lambs.
Blessed are those living in spirit, and blessed are those who trust God as their guide.
Blessed are those who hold onto the truth and are honorable.

Blessed are those who are precious in God’s sight.

Blessed are those who call their family that of Christ and follow their heart to the Water of Life…

Blessed are those who bow their heads before God, knowing the sacrifice he offered for the world…

Key Note: Matthew 24:35-37

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be…”

 

Islam/Christianity-Discovering the Truth and How Two Different Worlds Can Relate…

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: Islam/Christianity: The Key to Discovering Common Ground (Pages 379- “382”…Numerology..)

John 14:3-4 (For All the World)

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know…

When it comes to the war between Islam and Christianity, we ought to be mindful of the solution of discovering common ground. How can we make sense of both? What is the key to seeing the two united into one?

When we consider the Dome of the Rock or the shrine located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, we should be aware of the significance of this historical site. Looking back into history we see that structure has been refurbished many times since its initial completion in 691 Ce at the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik. The site’s significance stems from religious traditions regarding the rock, known as the Foundation Stone, at its heart.

When we consider the dome, we should know its history. The very form of a rotunda, given to the Qubbat as-Sakhra, although it was foreign to Islam, attempted to rival the many Christian domes of its time. The inscription decorating the interior clearly displays a spirit of polemic against Christianity, while stressing at the same time Koranic doctrine that Jesus Christ was a true prophet. All this shows that rivalry with Christendom, together with the spirit of Islamic Mission to Christians, was at work at the creation of the famous Dome.

 

The structure is basically octagonal. It compromises a wooden dome, approximately twenty meters in diameter, which is mounted on an elevated drum consisting of a circle of sixteen piers and columns. Surrounding this circle is am octagonal arcade of twenty-four piers and columns.

Recall that many believe that Solomon’s Temple must be rebuilt before the second coming of Christ. What does the Bible say in regards to this humanistic theory? In Islam, this differs drastically from biblical prophecy. Be mindful.

And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun or the moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb (His Words are your light in the darkness…)

Revelation 21:21-23 (nasb) (emphasis added)

So, my question is: according to the Bible, who is the cornerstone and the foundation stone? What does the foundation stone/cornerstone (seal/symbol) look like according to biblical facts? (Recall Moses and the burning bush.)

Having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together is growing into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.

Ephesians 2:20-22 (nasb)

Have you not even read this Scripture: “The Stone which the builders rejected, this became the Chief Corner Stone; This came about from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes?”

Mark 12:10-11 (nasb) So, I ask again: who is the chief cornerstone?

 

Have those who built the temple at the Dome of the Rock paid attention to what the Bible says? Have you read the words so clearly written out in the Bible, according to prophecy? There are many distinct connections…Correlations…

This should be the key to proving what is correct according to God. Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone? You should think long and hard about this simple question. What does the Bible say?

Key: All that God asked was that you give him credit for his work….

“And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe (Holy Grail)…. (Key Note: Artistic Design-Similar to the Dome) and on His thigh He has a name written, “King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.”

Revelation 19:15-16 (nasb) (emphasis added)

When we take a closer look at the Dome of the Rock, we should know the details behind the monument and regulations from an Islamic standpoint. Until the mid-nineteenth century, non-Muslims were not permitted in the area. Since 1967, non- Muslims have been permitted limited access; however, non- Muslims are not permitted to pray on the Temple Mount or carry any form of religious artifact or anything with Hebrew letters. The Israeli police help enforce this.

First of all, by regulating this site and persecuting, especially Christians and Jews, a line has been crossed that is completely unacceptable. By not striving to allow all religious faiths and peoples to see the site, you have gone against what the Bible has taught.

According to Islamic tradition, the rock is the spot from which Muhammad ascended to heaven accompanied by the angel Gabriel. Further, Muhammad was taken there by Gabriel to pray with Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. After Muhammad’s return, he called all who would believe him to join with him and be Muslim.

The Foundation Stone and its surroundings is the holiest site in Judaism. Just as Muslims pray toward the Kaaba at Mecca, the holiest site in Islam, Jews pray toward the raised platform on which the Dome of the Rock stands. Jews have traditionally regarded the location of the stone as the holiest spot on earth, the site of the Holy of Holies during the Temple period.

 

Let in be known that the Temple period has come and gone. In the kingdom to come there will be no temple, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And you should know that God’s ideas of helping understand how the world was made by his son will be evident at the Revelation of Jesus…

Does this help in making sense of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism? It should. You will recognize Jesus Christ by this truth. It is a simple choice that each person is forced to make in their lifetime. What is the oldest source of information that we have in regards to the kingdom of heaven and all of creation? Have you asked yourself this question? At some point in everyone’s life, you must address the question of:  What is this life all about? Who is the author and artist behind it all?

Psalm 18:2 says, “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” (emphasis added).

Now, tell me: do you deny that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Do not allow yourself to be misled any longer. Find your truth and your lamp…

May those with doubt and who have gone on rejecting Jesus awake and understand all things. May all of Islam know that Jesus cares for them. He has tried to show you the truth and to help you understand at all costs, the ultimate sacrifice… I ask that you give Jesus a chance from the bottom of my heart. Identify with Christ, and you will find the answers to all questions. We can find common ground and sort out the truth. It is simply a choice of whether or not you want to discover the Kingdom of God. The ball is in your court…No one can do it for you…

Revelation 3:20 (nasb) says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with Me.”

The Final Battle of Har-Magedon

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: Har-Magedon (Pages 375-376)

When we consider the battle of Har-Magedon, we ought to be mindful of where we stand. The battle of Har- Magedon consists of those who are fighting for the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Do you know where you stand? If there are two armies, what colors will the people of God use to represent themselves…Colors all hold different symbolic power. For example the colors red and black symbolize the death and suffering of Jesus. God will also use these colors to symbolize his power and wrath upon those who have rejected the Truth of His Son. The colors Blue, Purple, and White are all symbolic of Angels…God’s Angels who have been clothed with beauty and power…The truth is that God and His Son are the only ones who should be using the powers of the colors of the resurrection and death of His Son…The reason that God does not particularly like these colors is due to having witnessed so much death and suffering in a corrupted and fallen world…Be smart and be bright…Allow Jesus and the Angels with Him (Who have power of light and power of darkness) to take care of the work that must be done in order for God to do away with the evil…

Once again I want to reiterate the significance of the colors red and black. These colors have been abused for ages since the beginning of the Communist Revolution in Cuba by Fidel Castro and in Nazi Germany under the reign of Adolf Hitler. This is not to be taken lightly in my eyes. For those that have caused the bloodshed of innocent people and Christians, you are at the Mercy of God…He is the Final Judge… If you represent a movement of radical control against people, you will be judged accordingly. If you abuse power, especially of darkness, God will have you answer for your actions…God has been very patient and has asked people to seek Him first before all things. God has only asked that we honor His commandments. God allows for free will. Yet, He sees all.

When we consider the Muslim brotherhood, we should know that this is the revolution that is currently attempting to control the world. The Muslim brotherhood is one that is worldwide, and all that have chosen to sell out (Money, Money, Money…the number of a man…) and take the easy road in order to reap the benefits will face judgment. Let me remind you of this point: there is a real heaven and a real hell. Pay attention to flags and idolatry. Pay attention to the details. See the war for what it is. Do not live in the dark. You make sure that you are fighting on the correct side along with the army of Christ and God. These are the ones who will have right to the Tree of Life and to the Holy City (God’s Hidden Temple), which are written in the book of Revelation.

As we consider the symbolic nature of numbers let us be fully aware of their meanings…

Beginning with the number 6, which symbolizes human weakness, the evils of Satan and manifestation of sin. Man was created on the sixth day…The bringing together of three 6’s  (36,63,666) is the number and mark of the beast. It has been the only possible solution of controlling mankind, that man could produce on its own, WITHOUT God. The system of governance. The system on the earth has been made up of three significant parts (economic, religious, and governmental) all of which have been influenced and led by Satan. 

The number 3 is symbolic number of the Holy Trinity: The Father, the Son, and The Holy Spirit. It symbolizes completeness with finding God in your life and being transformed.

The Number 7 is symbolic of the foundation of God’s Word. It also symbolizes perfection and completion or finality. It directly reflects God’s creation and can also be recognized with the Seven Spirits of God. Look through the Book of Revelation…

The Number 8 can be recognized as a symbol of infinity and Eternity with God. It is a symbol of rebirth and the resurrection of the dead. It also demonstrates a higher sense of awareness, communication, and perception of all things according to God…Remember in Greek the numbers 888 are the code for the name of Jesus…

The Number 9 can be recognized in various ways, but most importantly it symbolizes the ending and conclusion…Even if used to reprsent evil, God is putting an end to it…That is how you may understsand it and interpret it…You no longer give any power to the evil numbers or numbers that draw you to question them…You stand by the numbers that God uses throughout His Word…He has given you the keys…The 9 fruits of the Spirit overcome any evil association to the number…

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), gentlness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is No law…”

The Number 12 can be considered perfect. It is the number by which God symbolizes his absolute Power and Authority. It symbolizes the 12 tribes of Israel, 12 Pearl Gates by which we are able to enter Heaven, the 12 Angels of God, and 12 apostles or disciples…Christ’s Bride, specifically wears a crown containing Twelve Stars…There is much to be discovered in this number pertaining to the End of the World…

There are some other numbers that I could also reference, such as 5 and 10…But, these numbers in particular have held many different values that have been abused and confused many in the world…This was due to the number of the beast or three 6’s…

I can tell you that the number 5 has been mentioned to reference the Stigmata of Jesus or the Crucifixion, but the wounds of Jesus were Far beyond 5…

And in regards to the number 10…The Ten Commandments sent by God to Moses are of the Utmost Importance…But, aware of the association between the beast in Revelation 13:1 that has 7 heads and 10 horns…you may incorporate the three 6’s with this beast…The Lamb of God has been battling this beast and just as God told you, His Son overcomes all of the adversity of Satan

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: Stigmata (Pages 73-74)

Stigmata are bodily marks, sores, or sensations of pain in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ, such as the hands and feet.

Galatians 6:17 (kjv) says, “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear on my body the marks of the Lord Je’-sus.”

Stigmata is the plural of the Greek word stigma, meaning a mark or brand such as might have been used for identification of an animal or slave. An individual is referred to as a stigmatic or a stigmatist.

Stigmatas are primarily associated with the Roman Catholic faith.

Many stigmatists show some or all of the wounds, which were inflicted on Jesus during the crucifixion. Some stigmatics display wounds to the forehead similar to those caused by the crown of thorns. Many stigmatics experienced cruel rejection and suspicion before their wounds were authenticated.

Christian theologian Ivan Illich states, “Compassion with Christ…is faith so strong and so deeply incarnate that it leads to the individual embodiment of the contemplated pain” (Wikipedia.org). His thesis is that stigmatas result from exceptional poignancy of religious faith and desire to associate oneself with the suffering Messiah.

 Luke 22:44 (kjv) says, “And being in agony He prayed more earnestly: and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”

This is another form of stigmata.

Some modern research has indicated stigmatas are of hysterical origin or linked to dissociative identity disorders, especially the link between dietary constriction by self-starvation, dissociative mental states, and self-mutilation in the context of a religious belief.

No one would ever wish these marks upon themselves. However, I do understand that people who have strong faith wish to represent God in every way possible, using their bodies as a living sacrifice or canvas. But, God did not ask this of you…His Son has already made that sacrifice for us. Remember that the blood of the Lamb has overcome the world…That will help you to make sense of what has been taking place…

When we consider the stigma from long ago during the slave trade, we see that the symbol of a cross was often used. In the case of the David Livingstone era, we see that many slaves were branded as a form of persecution and punishment. The third Greek letter, stigma, has a form that is also a symbol of something or someone connected to the Islamic religion. As stated earlier, the stigma is not a letter in Modern Greek, but it is a letter that was a brand placed on slaves. The word stigma means a mark made by a brand as burnt upon slaves, cattle, or soldiers by their owners and masters; or on devotees who thus branded themselves as belonging to their gods.

Take a look back at the ancient history and design of the David Livingstone church. Look at all the detail of the designs in the church. Reflect on the book of Revelation chapter 21.

Let us go back and really analyze the symbol of the red cross. Was it used as a symbol of Christianity or Islamic persecution? Let us make sure that we get it right. Look at the history.

First Corinthians 1:22-24 (nasb) says, “For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

 

Note: You have been given a choice to represent the number of your choice…You change what is wrong and make it clear to God what you represent or you will be consumed by the  Power of God…This is what we may understand to be the FINAL judgment and the battle of Har-Magedon…

 

Revelation 16:15-16 says, “Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk about naked and men see his shame. And they gathered them together to the place, which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.”

Number Communication

When we consider codes and communication it is important to be able to recognize the communication of followers of the Dragon and the beast as well as the communication of Angels of God or the Holy Spirit.

Numerology is the way that we recognize this deception and system that has operated, controlled, and manipulated the world…

Devil worshippers are not only con artist but actors as well…they attmept to set traps for innocent Christians and they are manipulators…They toy around with the minds of people that are unaware…They play games and enjoy promoting confusion and leading people down a path of darkness…(Where God’s wrath awaits)…

This is why we have UNDERCOVER Angels to judge them…

God has commanded them to do so…And every single thing that has happened has been recorded in God’s mind..He knew the strategy of his adversary and the fallen angels…

Who is one that puts God to the test?

Let also recognize the colors that symbolize God’s wrath…

Black and Red are very powerful…Black can be recognized as the Darkness and Evil and the red can be a symbol of the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ…These can be used to symbolize what is to come upon those who practice evil works, and in a sense (just like the first time) took part in the crucifixion of Jesus…

Psalms 78:49…(Again)

“He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them (they are hidden until they decide to be revealed)…”

Zephaniah 1:15

“That day is a day of Wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness…”

Deuteronomy 6:15-17

“(For the Lord thy God is a jealous God (He knows the Spirit of Truth V the Spirit of Error) among you) lest the anger of the Lord your God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from the off the face of the earth. Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah. Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his “Testimonies”, and His Statutes, which he hath commanded thee.”

God knows every move before you make it…

 

 

Understanding Wormwood in Our Modern World

Revelation 8:10-11

“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a Great Star (what do we use an image of a modern star associated with possibly “hidden” religious meaning), from heaven burning (symbolic of fuel) burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood (could also be referenced as a poison that kills a tree, “The Tree of Life”); and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

Wormwood in Hebrew, from an Arabic root meaning “to curse..”

Wormwood can be recognized in Scripture as being a metaphor for extreme bitterness. Many people who have translated the word have often used it to imply poison, poison water, and bitterness…one example that has been used over time by translators is “castor Oil…”

Opium is also another example of a type of Wormwood substance that be used as a toxin, drug, or poisonous substance. It was used in green songpyeon (Korean rice cake). It was also used by the Egyptians in 1550 BC and by the ancient Greeks. It was also discovered in an alcoholic beverage called Absinthe. Wormwood and gall dissolved in alcohol produces a strong intoxicant with narcotic properties. (Lamentations 3:15)…

Opium was produced by the Babylonians and Egyptians. After 400 AD, Arab Traders introduced opium to China. And from the 14th century Muslims used the drug…The Ottoman Turks ate and drank opium to reach ecstasy and would then participate in the practice of being mesmerized by the demons of the Prostitute of Babylon.

Deuteronomy 29:18

“Lest: there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the “gods of these nations”; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood.”

Gall is a metaphor for venom of serpents….

Deuterononmy 32:33

“Their wine (which we will define in more than one way) is like the poison of “dragons”, and the cruel venom of asps.”

Proverbs 5:3-6

“For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth i smoother than oil. But in her end is bitter than wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.”

You see, the Prostitute of Babylon is a very smooth talker (the ways of the serpent), but after intercourse with her, the curse she brings is bitter as wormwood and the punishment cuts like a two edged sword.

The Doom of a Nation

Jeremiah 8:14

“Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of “gall” to drink, because we have sinned against the Lord.”

Jeremiah 9:15

“Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God is Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even thus people, with “wormwood”, and give them water of gall to drink..”

Death

Job 16:13

“His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground…”

When we scroll back to the top we see in Revelation 8:10-11 that during the Great Tribulation a Great Star will fall from heaven…

Let us examine what this “star” could represent….

When we look at symbols like the Houston Astros or Texaco Gas Stations how might we better interpret them?

Note: the Peace Sign or “Inverted cross” is not a symbol of peace or Christianity…It is a symbol of adveristy to God (therefore, it belongs to those that worship Satan)…the True symbol of peace, desribed specifically in the Bible by the Holy Spirit is the Dove…

My question to you is:  “Why would anyone represent a symbol that is questionable or does not have a Christian meaning?”

(And when God says that it is about to get serious, He speaks Only the Truth…)

Psalms 18:1-5

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the End of the World. In them hath he set a Tabernacle for the Sun, which is the Bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.”

Note: Houston is home to “6063” (Numerology)  manufacturers who employ almost a quarter of a million skilled workers. Houston is the U.S. Energy Headquarters and a World Center for virtually every segment of the oil and gas industry, including exploration, production and transmission…

Well, looking at it from a Biblical standpoint, we see that this “Great Star” in Revelation could also be referenced as gasoline…This also helps us recongnize another aspect of the Dargon and the Beast of Revelation…

Revelation 13:4

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worhipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”

Economy plays a very signicant role here…

Gasoline is one of the largest industries in the world, and has been a source of fuel for a long course of time…It has also played a major role in war and weapons of mass destruction…And when we think of what a modern crucifixion of Jesus would be like, I am sure that Gasoline would be one way that the evil people of the world would try and destroy Him…Sometimes, I have to wonder, has he felt that type of pain? Well, sense he has tasted death for everyone, I would have to assume so…This should also help us undertsand his immortal existence…Tied up, beaten, covered in Gasoline…especially in his weakest of moments (feeling abandoned by all) when he was battling off all the evil that the world threw at him (demonic powers)…just a few aspects that help us understand the depth of the pain that he has endured and felt…

In the Bible the scorpion, like the serpent (see Snake), symbolizes demonic powers and is mentioned Speicifically in the Book of Revelation in the function of the creatures of Hell…

The Houston Astro, just for example, can also be understood as an analogy for the star called “Wormwood” in the Bible…

If you think about the cost of gas and how vehicles have been designed to run on this fuel, we see that billions of dollars have been made…and much of the oil and gas industry ties together perfectly with the Book of Revelation..

To get away from toxic substances that are also dangerous and poisonous we should try to think about how this may be portrayed as the root of all evil…

In our modern day, we are forced to have vehicles that run on fuel…but with all of our technology today, there is a way to overcome this problematic issue…Electric Cars are an ingenious solution that would resolve many problems in the world…

New and innovative ways of thinking have allowed us to create hybrids and electric powered cars..These are examples of how to do away with the cost of fuel (Note: Money means Nothing to God) and the terrible effects that it has had upon society…

  • Fuel=Money
  • Money=Power
  • Power=Control
  • Control=Corruption/Submission (from an earthly stand point)…
  • Beast=Symbol=Islam (“5” Pillars)

Revelation 18:7 “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her Heart, I sit a Queen, and am no Widow, and shall see no sorrow…”

(Note: 187- The Penal Code for the Crime of Murder)-Numerology

(Additional Note: This can be associated with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ)

In Heaven, there will be no need of gasoline or oil…no monetary value…

Think of the movie “Back To The Future”…and then consider the capability of our modern world, espcially technology…
