1. It would take weeks or years of 70 to “finish the transgression”

  • The transgressions of the nation were terrible sins and included idol worship; child sacrifice; sexual immorality; injustice and the persecution and murder of righteous men and prophets.
  • Provoked to anger, God had sent prophets to the nation over the centuries. Their response was to mock God’s messengers, despise His words and misuse His prophets until there was no remedy to appease the wrath of God (2 Chronicles 36: 16)
  • Therefore, in fulfillment of the prophetic word given by men such as Isaiah and Jeremiah, Jerusalem was destroyed and the nation taken into captivity.
  • However, God liberated the Jews from captivity in 539 BC  to  allow them to rebuild the Temple and reestablish the worship of God.
  • The Temple was finally completed in 516 BC, exactly 70 years after desolation in 586 BC.
  • Unfortunately, the nation fell back into sin after the return from captivity. Their transgressions  included the murder of  Prophet Zechariah the son of Berachias/Iddo, a man who had been instrumental in helping the Jews to successfully complete the rebuilding of the temple. The murder of this prophet was not documented in scripture, but Jesus reproached the nation for this atrocity during His final days  (Matthew 23: 35- 37;  Zechariah 1:1; Ezra 5: 1,2)
  • The Bible does not document the history of the nation following Malachi’s prophecy. God appeared to be silent. However, history reveals that  the nation fell into deeper sin during the reign of the Greek Empire.
  • The end of the nation’s transgression was the rejection & crucifixion of the Lord and the saints. Jesus had prophesied that scribes and Pharisees would  fill up the measure of their fathers by killing Him and by beating, killing and crucifying the prophets that He would send to them (Matthew 23: 31-38).
  • During the time of His Visitation, pride, hypocrisy and sin were the order of the day and the Lord berated the religious rulers for loading the people with heavy burdens while not keeping any of these laws (Matthew 23).

2. It would take 70 year periods to “make an end of sins”

Since Archangel Gabriel spoke about “the end of sins”; we need to ask when did the sins of the Jewish nation begin? This answer is found in Jesus’ reproach to the Scribes and Pharisees (Matthew 23).  The highlights of His reproof are:

  • They participated in the deaths of righteous men and prophets and would claim that they would not have joined with their forefathers in killing them. He knew that they were plotting to kill Him and would later persecute and kill the saints.
  • He called them serpents and vipers who were doomed to hell for these reasons.
  • Jesus said that their generation would pay the price for the death of the righteous men and prophets killed from the time of Abel.
  • Their sins would include the crucifixion of the Lord and death of those He would subsequently send to them (Matthew 23: 31-38).

Time of His Birth

Jewish history timeline from the return to Jerusalem

This feast was connected to the Feast of the Firstfruits. This is how it was celebrated (Lev 23: 15- 22):

  • The Jews were commanded to count seven sabbaths or 50 days from the Sunday that  the Feast of Firstfruits was celebrated.
  • Fifty days later, a new meat offering was given (two wave loaves baked with leaven); 7 unblemished lambs in the first year of life; 1 young bullock; 2 rams; drink offering; a peace offering of one kid and two lambs.
  • A Holy Convocation or a Sabbath was celebrated on Day 50 and no work was done.
  • A wave offering was made to God with the wave loaves and the bread of the firstfruits

Significance of the Feast of Weeks

  • While the Feast of the Firstfruits represented all of the first harvest, the Feast of Weeks represented the increase that was obtained after more of the seed had produced.
  • There was a greater celebration as represented by the increase in the sacrifices and the wave offerings.
  • The Feast of the Firstfruits ushered in  the Feast of Pentecost possible.
  • The accumulation of Sabbaths preceding the celebration indicated that the Jews had entered into a new rest.
  • This was the Feast of Pentecost, which means the Fiftieth Day (strong’s in blueletterbible.com). This was the Day of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all flesh.
  • The seven lambs in the first year of life points to Jesus who had just risen from the dead. The use of seven points to the fruit of the spirit.
  • More fire was needed here, pointing to the fire of the Holy Spirit (cloven tongues of fire in Acts 2).
  • The drink offering of wine pointed to the intoxication with the Holy Spirit. This was experienced by the disciples on the Day of Pentecost as well as those who receive the infilling (Eph 5: 18).
  • One young bullock (with horns?) represented the might of God.

Hope this was a blessing! Have a great day

The Jubile is the time of return

In the previous post, The Jubile Reveals God’s Intentions For Overflow And Blessings, I wrote that the words return, restored and  redeemed were used repeatedly in scriptures in reference to the Jubile. One important element of the Jubile was the restoration of land to Jews who had sold out their inheritance in order to get money. This was very important to God since He wanted Jews to retain their lots or possessions in their tribes forever:

And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family – Leviticus 25: 10

In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession – Leviticus 25: 13

In the Year of Jubilee the field will revert to the person from whom it was bought, the one whose land it was – Leviticus 27: 24

But if they do not acquire the means to repay, what was sold will remain in the possession of the buyer until the Year of Jubilee. It will be returned in the Jubilee, and they can then go back to their property –  Leviticus 25: 28 

But houses in villages without walls around them are to be considered as belonging to the open country. They can be redeemed, and they are to be returned in the Jubilee – Leviticus 25: 31

So the property of the Levites is redeemable—that is, a house sold in any town they hold—and is to be returned in the Jubilee, because the houses in the towns of the Levites are their property among the Israelites – Leviticus 25: 33

God is so serious about the Jubile that He judged Israel and King Zedekiah for failing to observe it

The Jubile was a covenant between God and Israel, a memorial of their captivity and freedom from slavery in Egypt.  We see that God judged the nation for refusing to release their own brothers and sisters in the time of the Release.

Many years ago, as I read through the scriptures, I was struck by the refusal of King Zedekiah to obey the command and by the judgment that God passed on him.

God did to Israel what they did to their brothers and sisters. They refused to set the captives free and God in anger sent them into captivity:

The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after King Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people in Jerusalem to make a proclamation of liberty to them,

that everyone should set free his Hebrew slaves, male and female, so that no one should enslave a Jew, his brother.

10 And they obeyed, all the officials and all the people who had entered into the covenant that everyone would set free his slave, male or female, so that they would not be enslaved again. They obeyed and set them free.

11 But afterward they turned around and took back the male and female slaves they had set free, and brought them into subjection as slaves.

12 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah from the Lord:

13 “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: I myself made a covenant with your fathers when I brought them out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, saying,

14 ‘At the end of seven years each of you must set free the fellow Hebrew who has been sold to you and has served you six years; you must set him free from your service.’ But your fathers did not listen to me or incline their ears to me.

15 You recently repented and did what was right in my eyes by proclaiming liberty, each to his neighbor, and you made a covenant before me in the house that is called by my name,

16 but then you turned around and profaned my name when each of you took back his male and female slaves, whom you had set free according to their desire, and you brought them into subjection to be your slaves.

17 “Therefore, thus says the Lord: You have not obeyed me by proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother and to his neighbor; behold, I proclaim to you liberty to the sword, to pestilence, and to famine, declares the Lord. I will make you a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth (Ezekiel 34).

The significance of the Jubile in 2015

The first is a message to the Jews living in the land of Israel. The nation must observe the Jubile correctly in order to receive God’s blessings. There are many modern-day applications to which the covenant applies. No one is to make a return then reclaim it. This is abhorrent to your Heavenly Father.

In order to keep the Jubile and to incur God’s favor, Israel must do right to the Jews who returned from the diaspora.They have been dispossessed for over two millenia and seek refuge in their ancestral home, as the Prophets foretold.

God gave King Zedekiah tit for tat. I encourage the Jews to reconsider the policies and provisions made for these individuals in order to hasten peace with your enemies, who surround you on every side.

Secondly, the restoration of land to owners is particularly important in light of the struggle that the Jews have had with the Palestinians over the past decades. The struggle has escalated to the point where the United Nations has aligned itself with the Palestinians Arabs in the most despicable manner.

As I understand it from heaven’s perspective, any foreigner can live on the land of Israel as long as they do so in peace. In fact, this provision was made in the law of Moses. God commanded the Jews to avoid oppressing strangers since they were strangers in the Land of Egypt.

God is not willing for the Palestinians to perish. He wants Israel to be a blessing to all nations. Yet, how could there be peace when they continually speak about war.

After seeing three visions (over a one week period), in which Lord Jesus took action on the issue, I believe that the Middle East is going to see a shocking series of events in which God will avenge the Jews for the sake of faithful Abraham. Heaven has confirmed this release with the Blowing of Trumpets and the visitation of Lord Jesus to tread down on His enemies in the territory.

God’s Awesome Principle of Rest

Some time earlier this week, Archangel Michael taught me about the Principle of Spiritual and Physical Rest. We will learn:

  • the importance that  God placed on rest by example
  • FIVE key words related to the rest of God
  • benefits of rest
  • how to enjoy rest for the spirit and body

The importance that  God placed on rest by example

God instituted Rest or Sabbaths from the  Creation and gave the blessing of rest to His children.  Rest is so important that God highlighted the concept FOUR times in Genesis 2: 2 & 3. We learn that rest means to end work and to set time aside from labor:

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made (Genesis 2: 2 & 3).

so the people rested on the seventh day (Exodus 16: 30).

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it (Exodus 20: 11)

It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed (Exodus 31: 17).

FIVE Key words related to the rest of God

We need to understand the meaning of FIVE important words before progressing. They are:

  • seven
  • rested
  • sanctified
  • hallowed
  • refreshed

Seven

  • refers to rest in the scripture.
  • 7th day was a rest day.
  • every 7th year was a year of rest or shemittah and a time of debt forgiveness during the 7th month. No work was done.
  • God promised to abundantly increase the harvest in the sixth year to allow for provision up to the eight.
  • every 49th year was a year of restoration of possessions and an entire year of rest.
  • Israelis had two years off when there was a Year of Jubile

Rested

  • shabath
  • to cease
  • rest from burdens
  • put away
  • celebrate

Sanctified

  • qadash in the Hebrew.
  • means to dedicate or set apart.

Hallowed – same as qadash

Refreshed – Exodus 31: 17

  • naphash
  • God made the sabbath day for humans to be refreshed (Exodus 23: 12).
  • scientific research confirms that rest is beneficial for renewal of the brain.

How to work smart not hard

The earliest human activity was gardening, known to be beneficial in exercise and stress reduction. This was not really work, because the earth was well irrigated and there were no adverse conditions. After the fall, work became laborious to the point where our ancestors would sweat and would be pricked by thorns and thistles.We  can learn to work smart by following God’s example:

  • schedule activities – there are six days in the week.
  • conceptualize what you want to do and the easiest way to get it done. God constructed a design for humans before creating them – “let us make man in our image and likeness” (Genesis 1: 26).
  • cluster activities – God made everything after its kind (Genesis 1: 24 & 25). He grouped the creation of body systems and  created animals and plants by species.
  • enlist the help of others
    • God said “let us”
    • angels were enlisted – the morning stars shouted for joy at the Creation – Job 38: 7
  • take breaks – God did all creation work between sunrise to sunset and not 24 hours. 
How to rest

Spiritual rest

  • fellowship with God, worship, read and listen to the scriptures
  • learn the scriptures which will then enlighten our lives and guide us into rest – Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119: 105).
  • meditate on the Word of God – One of the Hebrew words show that meditate means to speak, utter,  mutter, study the Word of God.
  • believe and apply the Word of God because this is the key to entering into the rest of God (Hebrews 4). The Jews who rebelled against the command to enter into Canaan or Rest, died in the wilderness. God prevented them from enjoying His Rest. In the same way, believers living in every era of time must believe and apply what God says about finances, health, morals, relationships, justice and other issues in order to enjoy the Rest of God.
  • Prayer brings rest – God reveals His will or desire when the believer prays. That knowledge of the will of the Father brings relief or rest from anxiety, so that is becomes easier to accept the will or rest of God:

And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray (Matthew 14: 32).

And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God

And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles (Luke 6: 12 & 13)

Jesus set the example by setting time aside to pray, even in the earliest hours of the day. It is through prayer that the heavens are opened, spiritual transformation takes place and the love of the Father is affirmed. This is a state of spiritual rest:

And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed (Mark 1: 35).

And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray

And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering  (Luke 9: 28 & 29)

Physical rest

Jesus set the example in His ministry

  • He escaped from the crowds when the ministry became too demanding and exhausting:

when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone (Matthew 14: 23)

  • Lord Jesus spent time with friends and took time off for social events – e.g. dinners, weddings

And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat… (Mark 14: 3)

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there

And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage (John 2: 1 & 2)

  • the Jews had a day of preparation for the sabbath so they were free from cooking and labor

There is a rest for the people of God

Jesus promised that He would give rest to those who come to Him (Matthew 11: 28).  He wants to relieve us from heavy burdens. The only way is to believe and apply the Word. For example, freedom from frustration comes by giving thanks in everything:

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thessalonians 5: 18)

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus

I pray that we will apply the Word of God and enjoy His rest and peace.

What is the Feast of Tabernacles?

The Feast of Tabernacles is a  Feast of the Lord. He commanded the Jews to celebrate it as follows:

  • in the seventh month
  • it was celebrated for 7 days
  • began on Day 15
  • Ended on Day 22
  • The Jews were to dwell in booths as a memorial of their deliverance from Egypt
  • Males were to appear before the Lord with an offering
  • At the end of every 7 year period, there was a release of debts DURING the Feast of Tabernacles

And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field (Exodus 23: 16)

And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end (Exodus 34: 22)

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD (Leviticus 23: 34)

Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath (Leviticus 23: 39)

Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine (Deuteronomy 16: 13)

Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty (Deuteronomy 16: 16).

The  Feast of Tabernacles is for ALL nations and not just the Jews

The prophecies of scriptures show that God revealed His feasts to the earth through the Jewish nation. These feasts were celebrated by Adam and early ancestors of the human race, but were forgotten as nations rebelled against God and served satan.

God intended all of His feasts to be times of rest, restoration, forgiveness, peace and joy. All nations are required to celebrate them and will experience distress when they refuse. Drought is one outcome of failing to keep the  Feast of the Tabernacles:

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles H5521

And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain

And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles

This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles (Zechariah 14: 16 – 19).

2015 Calendar of the Feast of Tabernacles

This year two of my siblings and a sister in the faith decided to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles as people of faith in Christ. We believe that the Feast has prophetic meaning and that we are to look to Christ the Great High Priest.

Feast of Tabernacles Calendar

Glossary for easy understanding of the Feast of Tabernacles

Tishri – September/October

  • This is the 7th month on the religious calendar
  • and 1st month of the civil new year.
  • From my understanding of Scripture, Nisan or April should be the first month of the New Year, whether religious or civil. When Nisan is kept as the New Year, the Jews will be able to clearly see Messiah in all of the feasts.

The Jews of Bible times celebrated April as month 1

This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you (Exodus 12: 2)

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles H5521 for seven days unto the LORD (Leviticus 23: 24)

And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles H5521 (Deuteronomy 31: 10)

And they found written in the law which the LORD had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths H5521 in the feast of the seventh month (Nehemiah 8: 14)

Debt forgiveness or Release was celebrated during the Feast of Tabernacles
  • The Shemitah was a sabbatical year during which no agricultural work  was to be done. The nation focused on rest and spiritual renewal.
  • All outstanding debts between Jewish lenders and borrowers were to be remitted or released at the end of the Year during the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • It was a year of blessing, rest, restoration and jubilation.
  • Debt forgiveness or remittance was a foreshadow of the forgiveness of the sins of the nation on Day 10 and a foreshadow of Christ who forgives our sins.
  • Modern day Jews celebrate debt forgiveness at the end of the sixth month (August-September)
  • This was Elul 29th 2015 or September 13th 2015 
  • The Year began September  25, 2014 and ran through Sept. 13, 2015.
  • The purpose of debt forgiveness is to model the forgiveness of God which we gain when we forgive others (Matthew 6: 12)
  • One ancient Jewish writing says that Adam sinned in Tishri, hence the reason for the Atonement at this time.

Rosh Hashanah

  • Jewish New Year (civil new year)
  • 1st day of the 7th month
  • September 14 & 15, 2015
  • Blowing of the Trumpets
  • A Convocation was held
  • According to chabad.org, Ten Days of Repentance or Shabbat Shuvah, are entered into between  Rosh Hashanah  (New Year) and ending on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).
  • On September 14th, 2015, I met with two of my siblings and a sister in the faith to study the prophetic meaning of the Trumpets in the scriptures (I will add the notes later).

Yom Kippur – Day 10

  • Day of Atonement –
  • A  convocation was held in Moses’ era
  • It will be celebrated on Wednesday September 23rd, 2015
  • The Jewish High Priest went into the Holiest of Holies to make atonement for the sins of the nation
  • Modern Jews observe 10 days of Repentance from Tishri 1 to 10 (chabad.org)
  • Jesus is the Great High Priest:
    • Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus (Hebrews 3: 1)
    • Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession (Hebrews 4: 14)
    • But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building (Hebrews 9: 11).

The Year of Jubile was also intertwined with the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 25)

  • It was celebrated every 50th Year and was a year in which there was rest and a return of all possessions that had been lost to creditors.
  • It was a Year of Liberty
  • The Jubile was announced on the Day of Atonement of the preceding or 49th Year
  • Trumpets were blown in anticipation (Leviticus 25: 9)
  • Chabad.org claims that the Jubile was to be only celebrated when all tribes are living in Israel
  • However. I recommend that the Jubile should be celebrated based on Zechariah’s reelation that the Feasts of the Lord and His Rests are for all nations.
  • Therefore, counting from 50Ad, I saw that a Jubilee should have been celebrated in the Year 2000.
  • A Shemitah was celebrated in 2001.
  • Failing the observances of debt forgiveness and return of inheritances, is this the reason why the new millenium 2000 has been marked with such distresses in the earth?

Jesus is the Jubile or Liberator of His People the Jews and all nations

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read

And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised

To preach the acceptable Year of the Lord (Luke 4: 16 – 19)

Sukkot – Sukkot or Succot 

  • Feast of Booths or Feast of Ingathering
  • Days 15 – 22
  • September 23rd to October 4th 
  • Celebrated 7 days
  • Seven days of feasting and rejoicing to the Lord
  • sacrifices, offerings and dwelling in booths
  • a memorial
  • Sabbath or Convocation on Tishri 16 or September 28th – a sabbath
  • Sabbath on Tishri 22 or October 4th
  • The nation of Israel were commanded to publicly read the scriptures at the end of every 7 years. You see why nations that remove the scriptures from public places become lawless as there is no conviction for sins:

And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles

When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing

Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law

And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it (Deuteronomy 31: 10 – 13)

The Sabbaths or days of rest during the Feast of Sukkot

The Jews were commanded to rest on the first day of the Feast of Sukkot (Tishri 15 or September 28th, 2015) and on the eight day (or Tishri 22 or October 5th 2015).:

Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the LORD for seven days; on the first day there shall be a sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a sabbath-rest.

“Remember that this seven-day festival to the LORD—the Festival of Shelters—begins on the fifteenth day of the appointed month,fn after you have harvested all the produce of the land. The first day and the eighth day of the festival will be days of complete rest  (Leviticus 23: 39).

The Convocations

  • Four convocations were held in Moses’ era
  • Days 1, 10, 15 and 22
  • rest from labor
  • giving of offerings
  • reading and interpretation of the scriptures

…The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD

On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein

Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein

Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.

And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days

And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month

Did God create the world with code? 

Early last week I was given a revelation about the Creation of the world as I added a table to a blog using html. As I did so, my eyes were opened to see that just as these incomprehensible words have meaning, the Word of  God also has hidden meaning. I began to wonder if God used codes to create the heaven and the earth.

I decided to share some examples in the natural realm that would illustrate.

I had this vision of the Lord Jesus on Monday 10th August, 2015. He was very disturbed and told me that He wants the gay pride flag removed from the US Embassy in Israel. The Lord told me during the conversation that Israel is the world leader.

Jesus is very, very disturbed about this issue and I pray that the US would obey and turn from sin to the Lord.

 

Update – In another vision a few weeks ago, I saw Archangel Gabriel throwing up, a reminder of Revelation 3: 19, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue (vomit) thee out of my mouth”

During the early hours of  Tuesday 21st April, 2015, Archangel Michael asked me what it means to wait for the Promise of the Father.  He told me to:

tell my people, the Church international, to prepare for the outpouring. It will happen in 10 days. However, my people must WAIT as Christ said.

Archangel Michael also told me that the word WAIT is pregnant with command, promise and power.  He said that WAIT means to:

  • set apart time
  • pray
  • lock away in the upper room
  • congregate
  • unify in one accord
  • focus only on receiving the outpouring and nothing else

To wait in the scriptures means to abide, remain, tarry (many days/a long time),  We must discipline ourselves to wait, because new outpourings are not like instant coffee. They require longing, anticipation, desire for God.

Archangel Michael then asked me to share my experience.

I  had just entered adolescence when my Youth Pastor, now Bishop Sonny Williams, began to teach the youths about the baptism of the Holy Spirit. He must have been about 18 or 19, thereabouts.  I say this to remind the church that God promised to pour out His Spirit on the youths.  Anyway,  led by our young bishop, the youths would have prayer times in which we would ask for the infilling. I would pray fervently, but it did not happen during our prayer times.

I was thirteen years old when I received the infilling. The church I attended was hosting a week of deeper life meetings and the Preacher was Pastor Neithie Soleyn. She preached from Revelation 3 –

you think you are rich, but you are poor – think you are clothed but you are naked. I remember her reading about the Lord promising to spue the church out of His mouth if they did not repent.

At the end of her message, Pastor Soleyn asked people to come for prayer. I sat in my seat and decided not to go. I had this conversation in my mind. I said to myself,

“you are a nice person, so and so (name withheld), says I am nice.

I do not need to go to the altar.”

I’m not sure how I got to the altar. I only remember praying and crying, confessing my sins. My prayer became fluent for the first time in my life. The surroundings faded away and I began to say, “le le le le le” as I spoke in a heavenly language.  Thereafter, the Lord gave me the gift of prophecy. I began to prophesy. People were crying as certain things were revealed. I had no clue what I was speaking about. .My mother eventually had to take me home so the congregation could leave.

The infilling that I received marked the beginning of   a new era in my life.  The most evident change was that I became bold to share my faith, even with adults. I was never the same after that and would begin to seek the Lord on my own without prompting.

As I continue, Archangel Michael said that we must:

  • anticipate the outpouring of God’s POWER
  • anticipate the outpouring of God’s CHARACTER

Archangel Michael told me that receiving the outpouring is being like God – God – people in the earth, the little ones, the beloved of God.  He said that the outpouring causes the Church to become joyful,  like the Church in the Book of Acts. There is singing, praying, praising, giving, evangelizing, discerning, becoming like God and POWER.

He told me to WAIT.

Archangel Michael’s question about the Passover

It was Saturday 28th March 2015 about 5, 15 am thereabouts when I heard Archangel Michael ask, “when was the Passover?” 

Jesus shed His blood on the Cross once for our sins in 33 AD, therefore making His Passover, the New Covenant by His blood 1982 years ago. There is a hidden code in the numbers

One 1 – Day 1 of  Creation.

Eight  – 8 represents beginning of a new week

Sunday

  • First – Alpha
  • One means beginning or new beginning.
  • The earth was without form and void and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. God said, “let there be light, and there was light.”
  • Spiritually speaking, Jesus is the Light of the World.
  • His death marked the beginning of the New Covenant for the salvation of all nations, not just Jewish people.
  • In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He made all things.

 

Nine – 9 – represents Day 2 of Creation

Two – the second day of Creation

Monday

  • Creation of  Heaven
  • I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence cometh my help
  • The Heaven is His throne, earth is His footstool

 

1 and 2

  • He was in the grave but rose on the 3rd day
  • He went down into hell but rose on the third day

Blessings.

  • Archangel Michael asks me for the meaning of the pattern 1, 2, 1, 2 in 1982.
  • 1982   (Wikipedia.org).

 

1. God counted time in Creation in isolation of the New or Full Moon

God showed us the pattern for counting time in Genesis 1.  He began at Day 1 and counted days which would add up to weeks, months and years. We know that because the forefathers counted time after the same pattern.

God did not count time by either a solar or lunar system. In other words, Father God did not link the passage of time to seasons. Days were counted from sunrise to sunrise, months were counted from day to day.

Since years began on Sunday January 1st and ended on December 30th, there were 364 days in a year with no leap years

How Old Is The Earth?

God created the sun, moon and stars on Day 4 of Creation and continued to measure time after the pattern established on Days 1, 2 and 3 of creation.

I believe that the Feasts were linked to the Moon  because people did not have much artificial light and needed that celebratory feeling. They needed to move about and would have needed light for visibility.

2. Chodesh is the Hebrew word for New Moon

After examining the usage of chodesh (H2320), the Hebrew word for New Moon, I saw that God used the appearance of a New Moon to mark significant events. However, while New Moons appeared at different times in the month, God did not change His pattern for measuring  time.

In other words, God did not alter His time schedule to match the appearance of the New Moon. This was particularly evident in the record of Noah’s flood which was given to us by God since Noah could not see outside of the Ark.

3. The timing of the New Moons between 1656 – 1657 did not change God’s pattern for counting time – God did not link time to His lunar calendar:

New Moon – February 17th, 1656

Noah is 600 years and 2 months old. He was locked in the Ark and could not see the moon. This record is given by God:

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, H2320 the seventeenth day of the month, H2320 the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened – Genesis 7: 11

Genesis further told us that Noah celebrated his 601st birthday on January 1st and reinforced that February was the 2nd month of his life:

And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry

And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried. – Genesis 8: 13 & 14

New moon  – 17th day of July 1656. Noah was in the 600th year of Noah’s life:

And the ark rested in the seventh month, H2320 on the seventeenth day of the month, H2320 upon the mountains of Ararat.

New Moon – 1st October 1656

And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: H2320 in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, H2320 were the tops of the mountains seen – Genesis 8: 5

New Moon – January 1st 1657. Noah celebrated his 601st birthday

And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the monthH2320 the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry – Genesis 8: 13

New Moon – 27th February 1657

And in the second month, H2320 on the seven and twentieth day of the month, H2320 was the earth dried – Genesis 8: 14.

Summary

Significant events occurred with the appearance of five New Moons in the time of Noah’s flood.

We see, for example, that the New Moon in February 1656 and 1657 occured on the 17th and 27th respectively. God did not reverse or stop time to suit these events, but continued with the creation pattern. We are therefore able to construct a calendar that shows that there were 364 days in the year of the flood.  

As the human race progressed, the New Moon would become less significant as modern people would use other inventions including electricity as light sources. God caused lunar eclipses to appear to draw human attention to the heavens and to signal and warn about momentous events.

  • February 17th 1656
  • 17th day of July 1656
  • 1st October 1656
  • January 1st 1657
  • 27th February 1657

4. Other patterns in scriptures confirm that God timed events with the Full Moon in order to add natural light as well as a feeling of celebration and joyousness

God timed the first Jewish New Year with the New Moon – Abib/Nisan 1st 2668

God miraculously commanded the New Moon to prolong that first month in order to give light for the activities, to alert the people and to make a way for the Exodus:

This month H2320 shall be unto you the beginning of months: H2320 it shall be the first month H2320 of the year to you – Exodus 12: 2.

This day came ye out in the month H2320 Abib – Exodus 13: 4.

New Moon – 10th Abib/Nisan 2668  – the Jews were to select the Passover Lamb

Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month H2320 they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house – Exodus 12: 3

New Moon –  14th Abib/Nisan 2668 – the celebration of the first Passover

And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: H2320 and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening – Exodus 12: 6

The first Feast of Unleavened Bread in 2668 was timed with the New Moon

In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month H2320 at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month H2320 at even- Exodus 12: 18

New Moon – 15th Day of May 2668 – this is now the second Jewish month.

And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month H2320 after their departing out of the land of Egypt. – Exodus 16: 1

The scriptures show that Moses commanded the Jews to celebrate the feasts on the same time of month each year, in much the same manner that we celebrate our birthdays. Maybe God miraculously gave them a New Moon:

In the fourteenth day of the first month H2320 at even is the LORD’S passover

And on the fifteenth day of the same month H2320 is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread – Leviticus 23: 5 & 6.

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, H2320 in the first day of the month, H2320 shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation – Leviticus 23: 24

The Jews kept the Passover on the exact days on the Second year after the exodus

And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month, H2320 of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying

In the fourteenth day of this monthH2320, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season

And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first monthH2320 at even in the wilderness of Sinai  (Numbers 3: 1, 3 & 5).

5. Chodesh was also used for month in a context that had nothing to do with New Moons, but rather calendar days, confirming that this is a consideration to be made for interpreting the timing of the Feasts

For example:

All that were numbered of the Levites, which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the LORD, throughout their families, all the males from a month  H2320 old and upward, were twenty and two thousand

And the LORD said unto Moses, Number all the firstborn of the males of the children of Israel from a month H2320 old and upward, and take the number of their namesNumbers 3: 39 & 40.

And the time that David dwelt in the country of the Philistines was a full year and four months. H2320  1 Samuel 27: 7

Blessings.
