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….-…

Chapter: Lord Of Harvest (Pages 38-41)

 

READ Revelation 13:11-18:

And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. And he performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given to him to perform in the presence of the Beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the Beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. And there was given to him to give breath to the image of, that the image of the Beast might even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the Beast to be killed. And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead, and he provides that no one should be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the Beast or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the Beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (J. NLT)

 

DEVOTIONAL

It is critical in reading this scripture that we remember that “he” may also be defined as “she”. The Beast can take the form of a woman or a man, and we know that this is the same with angels. The power given to the Beast allows for it to transform into a man or a woman. You see, the Great Harlot that rides the Beast is one entity…This is supernatural understanding and comprehension…We can understand this depiction or illustration by the union of a man and a woman when married and bonded by the Holy Spirit (The same type of connection but much more powerful and pure…) This is the truth that is hidden from most readers of this scripture. The plan of the Harlot and the Beast was to take away what belonged or belongs to God…At the Coming of the Christ we see Jesus rightfully reclaiming what belonged to him from the beginning…If I were to think a great book to write, an interesting story to write would be about Jesus and the Holy Angels versus the Beast and the Great Harlot…For all the world must know that this battle was and has been very real up until the Final Day…One must be aware of this power in order to resist and overcome the ways of the Devil. This part of prophecy requires us to be aware of this absolute, for the Devil can take the form of either a man or a woman. This is how the vast amount of manipulation has taken place over the course of time…This is why interpreting scripture can become so misleading, and this is also how the Devil prowls about unseen by those that are unaware. Being fully aware of this fact helps us gain insight and understanding. Remember that Jesus knows all of this and will fulfill His promise to overcome the Beast, and this entity… Prophecy has made it very clear.

Key Reference: William Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet 
Hold thy desperate hand.
Art thou a man? Thy form cries out thou art.
Thy tears are womanish. Thy wild acts denote
The unreasonable fury of a beast.
Unseemly woman in a seeming man,
And ill-beseeming beast in seeming both!
Thou hast amazed me. By my holy order,
I thought thy disposition better tempered.
Hast thou slain Tybalt? Wilt thou slay thyself,
And slay thy lady that in thy life lives
By doing damnèd hate upon thyself?
Why rail’st thou on thy birth, the heaven, and earth?
Since birth and heaven and earth, all three do meet
In thee at once, which thou at once wouldst lose?
Fie, fie, thou shamest thy shape, thy love, thy wit,
Which, like a usurer, abound’st in all
And usest none in that true use indeed
Which should bedeck thy shape, thy love, thy wit.
Thy noble shape is but a form of wax,
Digressing from the valor of a man;
Thy dear love sworn but hollow “perjury”,
Killing that love which thou hast vowed to cherish;
We are able to associate these words by Shakespeare with the nature of the Great Harlot and the Beast…

A Countless Number of God’s Holy People

Truth Revealed By God

Chapter: Emmanuel (Pages 124-127…)

READ Jude 1:14-16. Enoch, who lived in the seventh generation after Adam, prophesied about these people. He said, “Listen! The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy ones to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him (J.NLT).

READ Jude 1:19-21. These people are the ones who are creating divisions among you.

They follow their natural instincts because they do not have God’s Spirit in them. But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love (J. NLT).

READ Deuteronomy 6:14-16. You must not worship any of the gods of neighboring nations, for the Lord your God, who lives among you, is a jealous God. His anger will flare up against you, and he will wipe you from the face of the earth. You must not test the Lord your God as you did when you complained at Massah (J. NLT).

 

DEVOTIONAL

I like the description that is used here: “The Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones.” This is extremely powerful and helps us to know what the second coming of Christ will be like. He will come with ALL of the angels and ALL of His Holy Sealed People.

They will reign upon the earth and the earth will be made, once again, pure and in a holy state. For those that have spoken words against Jesus, their doom will come and their ultimate conviction. These guilty actions may be recognized by deception, which God hates (or dislikes) more than any other sin. These scriptures remind us to be of God and not of the world. Stay in love with the Holy Spirit and do not let go of God’s hand. For those that worship false gods, the wrath of God abides on them. For they are angry people full of hatred and discourse. For God uses the term “kindled” referring to fire and His power, in regard to those that deny Him and His commandments. 

Key Note: When God uses the term “hate” (Such as in the book of Revelation) he is very serious…That is the only way he could get his message across…there are no two ways of going about it…

Colossians 1:16-17 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist…”

A Word From The Kingdom of Heaven

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Our Peace (Pages 84-87)

READ Proverbs 8:6-9:

Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing forward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. (Illuminated Bible)

 

READ 1 John 1:1-5:

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (Illuminated Bible)

 

DEVOTIONAL

As we read the Word of God, we are able to gain understanding as to true wisdom versus the wisdom of the world. We are also able to obtain spiritual energy, which allows us to maintain the course. Without this Jesus energy, we have no way to keep up and fight the battles that we must face. We are to be honest and trustworthy, and to have no deceit within us. We are to follow the path of righteousness and not give in, but sometimes it is hard to find the energy to keep up. So, focus on studying the Word of God and overcoming the opposition. If you give up, you go back to square one, and it can feel like there is no way out. There is always a solution, but we must focus on discovering it in order to achieve that level of holiness. Being ordained into eternal life is what we desire, and that is our way to experience God.

 

God will bless you, if you seek Him out in every way. He will not let you down! Trust in Jesus to help you find a way out, and to not fall into temptation. He will be your guide and the light unto your path. Do not lose that light, but remain full of it in order to overcome the darkness. Life is not easy, and we know that the closer we get to finding God, the more challenging our lives become. It is not easy, and we must keep ourselves safe. (Be smart) Finding our safety within God is what He desires. He is a fortress and a shelter for those in need. Knowing that God has mercy is also our way of finding peace. God’s peace is what we desire. Everyone faces various problems in their lives, and we must deal with them in a way that pleases Him. However, that is not always easy. We must fight hard to win this battle between good and evil. We must give it all that we have— our hearts and souls.

 

Removing the Veil

Truth Revealed By God

Chapter: Jehovah-Yahweh (Pages 15-17)

READ Revelation 21:1-4. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them, and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away (NASB).

 

DEVOTIONAL

Reading and abiding by the commandments of Moses are the veil that covers our heart. When the veil is removed, all is revealed and God gives us liberty through His Spirit. In each city across the world, there ought to be an event taking place in which all people look in the mirror and see themselves being transformed into the glory of God. For one day, this will be the world that we live in, a new earth. We all want to be a part of the new creation and each fulfill our role as a servant of God, demonstrating His glory through our works.

READ Joel 2:28-32:

Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old me will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants-men and women alike. And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth-blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives. But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved, for some on Mount Zion in Jerusalem will escape, just as the Lord has said. These will be among the survivors whom the Lord has called. (J. NLT)

 

READ Luke 21:29-36:

The he gave them this illustration: “Notice the fig tree, or any other tree. When the leaves come out, you know without being told that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things taking place, you can know that the Kingdom of God is near. I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear. Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man. (J. NLT)

 

DEVOTIONAL

As we look to God for guidance, we are to remember that in the last days God will pour out his spirit upon all of those who seek him diligently with their whole hearts. God will be the one to guide us into the direction of Jesus before the world goes into utter chaos. We are to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and into his body, as we see him in his divine state. How do we know him from the false prophets and messiahs? We know him because of the truth that he reveals and by his actions as God incarnate. He has the Holy Spirit within him and will not lead us astray, as the false prophets and messiahs have in the past and present. Look to all the clues that reveal him and his true nature. He is fully human and one to whom we can put our trust for ultimate protection. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end…

Gentleness Is Not Weakness…It Is Strength Under Control…

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

 Chapter: What Are True Revelations? (Pages 329-332)

Having done much research concerning the book of Revelation and the revelations of Islam, we should know that there is a very significant difference. The revelations of Islam are completely different, and they deny the book of Revelation concerning the identity of Jesus Christ. We need to be aware of these facts.

During his lifetime the followers of Muhammad claimed him to be a prophet. Muhammad brought forth a series of what believers called revelations. After the death of Muhammad, his sayings were collected in a place called the Quran. The Quran is considered to be the sacred revelations of Islam, just as the Bible is considered God’s sacred revelation to Jews and Christians. The Quran contains 114 surahs, or chapters, starting with the longest surah and ending with the shortest. The surahs were the alleged revelations given to Muhammad over a twenty-two-year period. The Quran was completed in 632 AD (Numerology-Key to Understanding-Revelation 13:18). Muhammad was believed to be illiterate; therefore, the revelations were written down by his followers as they heard him recite it. The words were written on leaves, pieces of parchment, and even dried bones. The Quran was compiled after Muhammad’s death and written in the Arabic language.

While Muslims claim to accept the Torah, Psalms, and the four Gospels, they also claim the Bible has been tahrif, meaning, “corrupted” or “altered.” Muslims believe that since Jesus did not write the Bible Himself, it is not accurate. (The Testimony of Jesus is Verification of the Holy Bible and It’s Contents…It provides full understanding of the God of the Old Testament and Jesus…)

In attempting to sort through this issue, we should consider the time frame during which the Bible was written. Over how many years was the Bible written? When was the Quran written? How many authors were responsible for the writings in the Quran? How many authors were responsible for the writings in the Bible?

Do people understand that the entire Old Testament is about Jesus Christ and who he will be? Do people understand that the law in the Old Testament is what Jesus came to fulfill? The Law of Moses is critical to understanding Christ. Keep it simple, the Ten Commandments. Why would someone change the law that was ordained by God? Is there not enough evidence in the Old Testament as to what would happen by rejecting God and His law?

God was and always is very clear.

He is never one to lead you astray. God is love.

Always demonstrate this love.

Proverbs 3:11-13 (nasb) says, “My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord, or loathe His reproof, for whom the Lord loves He reproves, even as a father, the son in whom he delights. How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.”

Many stories in the Quran are very different from the stories in the Bible. For example, the Bible teaches that Abraham dwelt by the trees of Mamre and built an altar there to the Lord (Genesis 13:18). The Quran teaches that Abraham said, “O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in a valley without cultivation, by Your Sacred House [Ka’ba]; in order, O our Lord, that they may establish regular Prayer…” (Surah 14:37). When asking a Muslim about the contradiction that Mamre is in Hebron and the Ka’ba is in Arabia, a Muslim said, “The Quran is infallible. The Jews and Christians changed the Bible to make it fit for them” (Unleashing the Beast by Perry Stone).

This is why witnessing to Muslims by simply quoting Scripture seldom wins them to Christ. It is love and the presence of the Holy Spirit that can impact their hearts. The name of the Son of God is Key…Hidden and coded…just like a thief in the night…

The world needs to be aware of how Islam will and has fulfilled many of the Bible’s predictions of an eighth kingdom that seeks to destroy Israel and the Jews unless one understands certain Islamic beliefs and traditions. Israel and the most Holy Sites in history have been infliltrated and overtaken by Islam. 

“For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.”

1 Peter 2:21-25 (nasb)

The Revelation means to “take the cover off,” or apokalupsis, from the preposition apo, from kalupto, to cover. It is the uncovering, especially of the glory of Christ and of what the future holds.

This is the same John that wrote the Gospel of John and the three Epistles of John.

The truth here is to be known that these four books are critical to understanding Jesus and who He is. By putting our focus into these books, we can grasp the truth of the Bible and the Revelation of Jesus Christ. (A Total of 5 Books…)

One warning that needs to be addressed is to beware of those who make public announcements that they are the savior. To be clear, I can see where this is a definite warning sign. Jesus has full authority, but He does not walk around saying, “Bow down and worship me, because I am the Savior.” You learn about Jesus and

His identity from the Bible. Stick to the Word of truth and you cannot go wrong. That is your key. His Testimony is your light to discover the Kingdom of Heaven…

The Revelation of the Bible versus the revelations from the Quran is so critical to understanding the dynamics of the situation. These two differences will clear up and verify Biblical Prophecy. The Bible has forewarned us of false prophets, as well as wolves in sheep’s clothing. It did well before the Quran was written.

The book of Revelation was written when the church was undergoing persecution and difficulty. The two most important such periods were during the reigns of Nero in A.D. 37-68 and Domitian in A.D. 51-96. The letters to the churches of Asia Minor are very important. Pay attention to those letters.

To end on a positive note, let’s review Matthew 11:29-30 (nasb). Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and You shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.”

Gentleness isn’t weakness. It’s strength under control. This is so powerful. I love and cherish these words…This is Jesus when he can just be himself and have no guards (Angels) up…

Luke, the writer of the New Testament books the Gospel of Luke, and the Acts of the apostles, was a physician by trade.  From his writings, it is also clear that he was a very learned man.  (One is not to argue with a physician taught and trained by Jesus (Luke is a very important piece of the makeup of Jesus, the Son of God…For he knows all things, just as the Father knows what you need before you ask…)

Luke first met the apostle Paul at Troas on Paul’s second missionary journey.  On Paul’s third missionary journey, we find Luke living in Philippi. 

It would appear that Doctor Luke was a constant companion of the apostle Paul through his first imprisonment in Rome.  And even during his second imprisonment to some extant. 

He was Paul’s medical advisor and undoubtedly prolonged Paul’s life and rescued him from many a serious illness.  he was a medical missionary.

There are several Church traditions as to his manner and place of death.  One is that he died peacefully in Boeotia and the other is that he was crucified with the apostle Andrew at Patras or at Elaea in Peloponnesus.

Colossians 4:14

“Luke, the beolved physician, and Demas, greet you…”

From Jesus’s point of view the amount of illusion and distraction in society has become extreme. The issue of concern for our citizens is that people are not getting the truth and the facts. As a society, God expects us to speak the truth and to not accept lies or deceit.

Lying and deception is the cause of our fallen world. The state of our world and lack of new creative jobs where you get to do what you love, as well as the mass corruption through deception that has existed for so long, is a good indicator of where changes will  be made. These concerns need to addressed with serious efforts to remove the source of the problem (Internal). The source of the problem may be removed by means of discernment. (For God knows all of the players involved-omniscient…) 

We do not judge intellect by the ways of mankind….We just intellect by the knowledge of God given by the Holy Spirit…Angels do not think or act the same as human beings…they are not of the world…Therefore, you respect them…

When I consider Islam and the influence of the False Prophet during the fall of Babylon d I see where the source exists (Much of this goes back to Legalism (Ways of the World) Vs Christianity) Had Islam never come into the picture we would not have the mass amount of deception that we see today, but in reality Islam came only to instill confusion and to disrupt God’s order. Seeking out the truth from the Holy Spirit, we may recognize Allah, a master of disguise and illusion. You see, Allah (who claims to be God) is the one who influences the legal system which also associates directly with the government…Jesus knows Allah better than any other… Jesus can and will be the source of our discernment. If you believe and listen to Jesus you will never be led astray. (This is where the Angels (Secret Service to God and Home (the Body of Christ) Land Security will take action and put away all of the deception. (Chapter 18-U.S. Code-USSS-key reference)

Key Information To Special Ops: An example of a Presidential motocade is helpful to understand the extent of protection involved…we can relate this to the 12 Angels of Revelation…

  1. A Route Car (generally two police officers) drives the route to check it visually up to five minutes prior to the President’s movement.
  2. A Pilot Car (generally two police officers) drives the route a minute prior to ensure it is clear.
  3. A Lead Car (generally two police officers) drives just ahead of the motorcade to clear the route at the time of movement.
  4. Two President Cars (The Beast), one a decoy and the other containing the President, move behind the Lead Car, the driver and at least one Secret Service guard accompany the President.
  5. Halfback follows closely — this is the primary support car loaded with at least four Secret Service agents and the usual weapons, including submachineguns for real firepower.
  6. An electronic countermeasures and communications vehicle follows with a classified onboard team.
  7. Two vehicles follow, known as Support and Control, bring along support teams as well as a doctor and full med kit for emergency medical support.
  8. A HAZMAT countermeasures vehicle follows with a classified crew, able to respond to chemical and other non-traditional weapons attacks and pollutants.
  9. The Press Vehicles — maybe two that carry on board press, driven and manned by Secret Service agents.
  10. Roadrunner, which is the WHCA support vehicle containing comm relay and encryption support for secure global communications, even on the move.
  11. An Ambulance from the local area with a cleared medical crew.
  12. As well, along the route of travel, Secret Service agents may also be deployed in vehicles, in buildings and on streets in plain clothes to provide support and suppression of any attacks.

 

 When we consider educational programs across the country we ought to be aware that Mohammed is behind the scenes in much of what is being taught. “Mohammedanism” is a very important underlying reality to be aware of. Research it….

 

Jesus knows all things as His heavenly Father has ministered to Him, in order to correct the problems that have destroyed society. Jesus has been instructed and taught by His heavenly Father in order to do all these things, according to God’s will.

Trust God and hold onto the Testimony of Jesus…
