I had to copy from this site, so it does not get lost or shut down. This guy had the dream and accomplished the research on his own. EXCELLENT!!:
September 13, 2015, A Reoccurring Dream Parts 1-4 in Sequence
September 13, 2015
I recognized at the time I saw this flashing date that I was waking up from a dream, but what did it mean? My human mind went immediately to work. Was it the date of the second coming? No, it could not be that date for then I would know what according to Jesus no man would know, not even the angels or the Son of Man Himself (Jesus) would know. According to Scripture only the Father would know that date. You see, I knew this immediately because I knew the Word of God (Bible). This strange date that at the time was still over 6 years away could not be and was not the date of the Second Coming, but what did it mean? Did it have significance to me personally or was it for the Church, the United States or was it perhaps for all of the above?
I did not know but prayed for revelation regarding a date which had yet to occur and since it was still 2009, it was still nearly 6 years away.
Praying and leaning onthe passage of Scripture found in Proverbs which tells us that it is the “honor of kings to seek out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2), I began to research the date that had come up in the different dreams. Now, don’t you know that there really is not much to be found about a date that has not yet occurred, one that has no history? I felt like I was grasping at straws!
In the vantage point of our time, nothing has yet occurred on that date and the day itself held no significance that I could find. The only thing I could find about that date is that according to NASA a solar eclipse will occur on that date and that a blood moon would also occur approximately at that time in a series of 4 blood moons.
It was then I heard the LORD say to me in my Spirit; “use my calendar!”
You see, our calendar known as the Gregorian calendar uses the sun, but the Hebrews or the Jews as we know them today used a calendar based on the moon. I then went about the task of converting the date of September 13, 2015 to the date on the Hebrew calendar. I knew that God has in days past and in the present used the nation of Israel as a timepiece as He carries out His plan and purpose to redeem the world. I researched the Hebrew calendar to determine the corresponding date and then once I established that, I sought to see if it held any significance in Jewish law and tradition.
I determined that the corresponding date on the Hebrew calendar was the last day of the civil year, the 29th day in the month of Elul. I found that the 29th of Elul has significance… but only once every 7 years! The 29th of Elul (September 13) in the year 2015 is the day of remission in the Sabbatical year which only occurs once every 7 years. According to the Old Testament in the book of Deuteronomy (verse 15: 1, 9), it was on that day that the practice of “Shemittah” or “remission” occurred. The Hebrew word Shemittah means to “let fall” or “release” and refers to a day when debt is let go and debts between the people of Israel were forgiven. Technically the Talmud distinguishes the Sabbatical year for the release or “quitclaim” as we say today of loans as "shemiṭṭah," or more distinctly "shemiṭṭat kesafim" (money-release). In fact it is this ancient Jewish law on which our laws of bankruptcy are rooted today. It is a good day for those who are in debt but it is not a good day for creditors. The Israelites were to count seven sabbatical years (7 periods of 7 years = 49 years) and during the following year (the 50th), the year of Jubilee was to take place (Leviticus 25: 8, 10). Every 50 years the Year of Jubilee took place extending as well to the resting of the land as an added feature to the forgiveness of debt. In the year of Jubilee, Debt is forgiven and what property is involved reverts back to its original owners.
I also determined in my research that 2015 also starts the next year of Jubilee. Curious, I decided to look into the last year of Jubilee which started in 1966 and into 1967 according the lunar calendar.
An interesting event took place in the last year of Jubilee 1966-67. It was in that year that Israel captured Jerusalem, taking back that land in the 6 day war. Spurred on with this discovery, I counted back another 50 years to see what occurred in that year. In the year of Jubilee previous to that, 1917-1918, General Allenby of Britain captured Jerusalem from the Turks. These two years of Jubilee marked God’s first two steps in returning the land of the Ancient nation of Israel back to its original owners, the modern day nation of Israel.
The reason for my counting back 2 years of Jubilee from the one starting in 2015 was important to me because I recognized the significance of the number 3 to God. In Hebrew and in the Bible, numbers are very significant to God and He uses them to place His signature on events in history. In fact in my book, Secrets of a Supernatural World, Near Death Revelations of the Ancient World and the Future, I explore the significance of a variety of numbers in which God places His fingerprints on the events of mankind. The significance of the number 3 is that it refers to a divine order (i.e., the trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Jesus rose the 3rd day,etc.). God also in the Bible tells us that a thing is confirmed upon the witness of 2 or 3. Therefore when searching, I always explore patterns of the numbers 3 and 7, the number of spiritual perfection or completion as well as other numbers, sometimes discovering patterns and sometimes not. So assuming the date in my dreams could be a number 3 of a pattern of events, I was interested in what occurred in numbers 1 and 2 in this sequence of 3 Years of Jubilee, with number 3 starting in 2015. There is a connection! If this is a pattern of 3, then we must conclude that something significant occurs in the next year of Jubilee which starts at the end of September 13, 2015. We can also conclude that it must have to do with land in Jerusalem reverting back to its original owner (Israel) as the year of Jubilee demands and which also had occurred in 1917-18 and 1966-67.
Hmmm… Is there any land in Jerusalem not in the hands of the original owners? Yes, there is! Presently, the only land not in the hands of the original owners, the Nation of Israel is…the Temple Mount!
I was so excited by my discovery, I was sure I had discovered the significance of the date when the LORD said to me…”you’re not done yet”!
I realized that I must check the pattern of 7.
Restating the above more simply as we move forward, 2015 is not only a Sabbatical year which occurs once every 7 years but it also starts the beginning of the Jubilee year which occurs once every 50 years. Both events focus on economic matters, breaking the yoke of financial bondage, resting the land, providing for the poor and showing a dependence on God in faith as their source to prosper the nation and provide for their needs.
What does this mean? I sought the LORD’s answers as I dug deeper into the significance of the 29th of Elul which wanders around the months of September and October on the Gregorian calendar, falling on different days in different years.
I curiously wondered about the date of the 29th of Elul in the previous Sabbatical year relative to the one which will fall in 2015. I then assuming again that year 2015 is a number 7 year in a divine order pattern of 3, I began counting backwards 7 years from 2015 and arriving at the year 2008. I discovered that the 29th of Elul fell in that year on September 29th. I began researching the events of this date to view any significant occurrences. As the results of my research were presented, my heart began to beat faster as I uttered the words; “O my dear LORD!” I was so unsettled by what I had discovered I had to get out of my chair and walk around as I contemplated what I had just observed.
The September 29th 2008 headlines on CNNMONEY.com read: “Stocks Crushed, Approximately $1.2 trillion in market value gone after House rejects the $700 billion bank bailout plan” (notice the number 7). The article goes on to report that the Dow Jones Industrial average had experienced its worse single day loss in the history of the market falling (notice the number) 777 points for a (notice the number again) 7% decline. Let me remind you, these events took place in the Sabbatical year (7th year) precisely on the day to “let fall” (shemittah), the 29th of Elul!
Wow, I thought, “Is God is trying to get a message to the United States and to His people or is all this a “coincidence”?
The 777 point loss on September 29, 2008 surpassed the previously set mark of 684 point loss recorded on September 17, 2001. September 17 was the day the stock market opened after being closed on 9/11 following the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center in New York. Spurred on by my success in researching the 2008 date, I again following a pattern of 3 significant events in a row searched back 7 years to see what the date September 17, 2001 was on the Hebrew lunar calendar and do you want to guess what the corresponding date was? Yes, it was precisely the 29th of Elul again in the Hebrew sabbatical year!
Hmmm…go ahead talk among yourselves!
This startling discovery underscored the significance of the events of 9/11 as a national warning to a country founded on biblical principles as well as to the people of God in that nation and throughout the world.
You see, terrorists attacked the symbol of America’s financial leadership in the world in the Hebrew Sabbatical year on 9/11/2001 and while the towers fell on that day, it was not felt in the financial arena until September 17th. Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange were closed on 9/11 and remained closed the rest of the week, reopening 7 days later on Monday September 17th. On that day we experienced the greatest single day losses in the market until another warning was issued 7 years later to the day and falling a record 777 points! This crash following 9/11 occurred just as the one in 2008 did… on the 29th of Elul, the day God had instructed Israel to “let fall” or “release” as the Hebrew word “shemittah” means. In fact on both these days, orthodox Jews conducted rituals celebrating this day of remission or release in the 7th or Sabbatical year. Both of these days remain at the time of this writing as the two greatest days of single day losses in the stock market. They were also exactly the last two days of “shemittah” to occur in a possible divine order pattern of 3. Is it possible that an even greater event in the economy and the stock market awaits us on September 13, 2015?
There are too many coincidences to be coincidental, as I like to say and that is not even the half of it! Let me summarize and explain further.
I was led by the Spirit to seek out the date of my dreams, 9/13/2015, and to discover without foreknowledge that the date is precisely the date of the 7 year reoccurrence of the final day of the Sabbatical year, the 29th of Elul…precisely the day of remission or the “letting fall” of debt. I not only discovered this, but I also discovered that this date in my dreams that was still in the future is exactly 14 years from the worst stock market crash precipitated by 9/11 and exactly 7 years to the day of an even worse crash, a day when CNN.com headlines read “Stocks Crushed!”
The revelations I had received were no less than startling! I continued researching the events of 9/17/2001 and the subsequent events of its 7 year anniversary with a prophetic eye towards the date in my dreams which I determined is the next 29th of Elul in the Hebrew Sabbatical year which also just happens to start the next year of Jubilee! Remember I previously stated that the sabbatical year was not so good if you were a creditor. If you own stocks and bonds, a creditor is exactly what you are; as you are owed the value of those instruments, which values will fluctuate on a day to day basis.
My study led me to recognize additional historical and biblical parallels and “coincidences” to an event in the history of ancient Israel. In addition I began to discover rabbinical teachings both Messianic and Orthodox noting the strong parallels between the 29th of Elul events of 9/11 with the events which we could call “warning events” that occurred prior to the fall of the Nation of Israel in the 8th century BC. While the Rabbinical teachings focused on the event of 9/11, I realized I was not alone in the observations I was making in regards to the prophetic significance of the last decade. God shares His secrets with His friends and He will also confirm those secrets on the testimony of 2 or 3 witnesses as we discussed! He was revealing His warnings to His people, He wants our attention! In the past year, one of those to whom I taught these things in a public forum made me aware that even a novel has been released in the last year based on the 9/11 events. I realized what the LORD had revealed to me took it even further into the future and there are more significant ties which we cannot discuss in the one posting but I promise I will share with you soon!
If one studies the Scriptures, they will find as I have written before in my blog postings that “warnings always precede judgment” or put another way…God always warns before He allows judgment to come on a nation or a person. (See: buckstephens.typepad.com/blog)
You see, God is not in the punishment business, but instead is a God in the love business! He throughout history consistently warns and provides ways of escaping impending judgment. Judgment comes to us as a result of our own actions when we do not follow His commands, precepts or values in our life. God sees us doing that, tries to get our attention and offers us the opportunity to “change direction” or repent and receive the rewards of obedience.
God did not make the towers and the markets fall so we could learn something! Let me explain.
When God created the world, He created an order to things. His order would lead to peace and prosperity. He also gave us the free choice to obey His order of things or to do it our way. Even after the fall of Adam and Eve, while the earth became corrupted due to disobedience, God’s order was still in place and mankind had the option of obeying His order or way of doing things or, we could do it our own way! Each path had its own reward or consequences, either peace and prosperity… or judgment! The disregard of His ways by America opened a door in the hedge of protection God promises for obedience. The door was opened and the attacks occurred. God is sovereign, however, and He orchestrated the events surrounding these inevitable consequences of disobedience embedding His signature in them in order to warn us of further impending consequences for the continued disregard for His ways. We have this decision both as an individual and as a nation.
The question must be asked as we consider the following; was 9/11 a warning to a nation which was departing from its founding principles? Were the subsequent events to 9/11 a wakeup call to the people of God to get ready, to humble themselves and pray so that God would heal their land? We must ask as orthodox and Messianic rabbis have raised the question; Are we neglecting or not seeing the warnings just as ancient Israel did not see or acknowledge the warnings given them by the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah?
I charge you that if you will look at the current situation in the United States and throughout the world, and consider the observations of the rabbinical teachings regarding the unfolding of parallel historic events as well as the financial parallels, I have discovered in the last decade; you will hear the voice of a loving LORD speaking and warning. He, as prescribed by Scripture, is bringing forth the warnings through the witness of 2 or 3 to whom He has revealed His secrets. With every copy of Secrets of a Supernatural World I have signed, I include the Bible reference, Mark 4:11. This verse is one which tells us that God reveals secrets to His people, those who seek Him and know His word. We then carry the burden of a watchman on the wall who is to cry out warning the nation. God is lovingly warning a nation as well as His people who reside in this nation to turn their face toward Him in repentance. He wants us to through obedience allow Him to heal their land before the warnings expire and the path of self imposed judgment takes its natural course when God’s ways are not acknowledged.
So… “What about September 13, 2015, what about the next year of Jubilee?” you ask. What can we expect?
I do not know exactly what will happen, but we certainly can expect that it has to do with finances and the stock market and also that it has to do with Jerusalem and property there reverting back to its original owners. Its Kingdom business and it’s about a soon coming Kingdom, that’s for sure!
The people of God need to be forewarned and forearmed and they need to prepare. This is exactly what I have been seeking to do ever since the LORD warned me as a financial advisor to take my retirees out of the market in 2008. It was right after I was obedient and did just that the dreams of the September 13, 2015 began.
Yes God is sharing His secrets with His friends…are you listening?
September 13, 2015 Part 2; An Old Rabbi and a New Pope
In our discussion of the date in which I saw or heard in reoccurring dreams and as I shared in Part I of this series, I stated that the date was significant in that it was the 3rd in a series of significant Sabbatical year dates which occurs once every 7 years on the 29th of Elul on the Hebrew Calendar, the last day of the Hebrew civil year. I also indicated that not only was it the 3rd date in a series of 7 years but it also signaled the start at the end of that day of the next year of Jubilee on the Hebrew Calendar. I also discussed that this year of Jubilee which occurs once every 50 years after 7 sabbatical years was also a significant year in a pattern of 3 years of jubilee. In the previous two years of Jubilee, something very significant happened regarding the return of land as the Year of Jubilee prescribes. This return of land was in Jerusalem and involved the return of land to Israel, its original owners. For a more detailed discussion of these patterns and what occurred, refer to Part I of this series.
First of all, let me state, I am not setting any firm dates here but as we study the patterns in the light of the Jewish holidays and feasts, they do indicate that 2015 and 2016 is a significant time on the prophetic calendar. Once you read the following, I believe you will understand fully yourselves.
What about that date of September 13, 2015, what can we expect? I promised in Part I that I would give you some additional information and so here comes more of a loving God’s signature in the times in which we live. It’s all so amazing; you have to take it in little bites. In answering that question we need to examine the events now happening as well as those in the past leading up to that date. While there are so many details which I have observed, this writing is only attempting to summarize for the reader what could be an extensive treatise on the subject.
Let me summarize in general what we might be seeing occur on and around the date September 13, 2015 and in the following year of Jubilee which begins at the close of that day and will end on October 3, 2016. Since both of the previous dates regarding the sabbatical year’s Day of Remission which is observed on the 29th of Elul as well as in the two previous years of Jubilee occurring in a pattern of 3 successive years of Jubilee had to do with financial calamity and the return of land in Jerusalem to Israel its original owners, we must conclude that on or about that future date, similar events might occur.
Since the 29th of Elul on both of the previous Sabbatical years signaled the two worst days in the history of the stock market we might expect something similar. However, I believe that there will be a new twist to this 3rd date in the two event patterns, one which combines both occurrences similar to that we have seen in the prior two Jubilee years and two Sabbatical years.
Unless the rules of the New York Stock Exchange change, the market will not be open on that day since it is a Sunday. Interestingly, Sunday is also known as the 3rd day…since Jesus rose on the 3rd day, a Sunday. The 3rd day has always been a sign all throughout Scripture. Remember the number 3 refers to a divine order of completion. This Day of Remission in the year 2015 most likely will be different than the previous two days of Remission since it has the added dimension of also beginning the Year of Jubilee. Perhaps, we will see a combination event of the Day of Remission (Sabbatical) and the Year of Remission (Jubilee) events. The year of Jubilee not only has the command of the forgiveness of debt such as the Day of Remission in the Sabbatical year does but also the added dimension of land reverting back to its original owner; therefore it is more likely that the September 13 date has more to do with land than it does with the stock market! However the land issue could very well precipitate a financial reaction.
It is very likely that whatever happens with the land in Jerusalem at that time will impact the world’s economy adversely due to the outfall of a land controversy. Presently, the only land in Jerusalem not under Israel’s jurisdiction is in fact the Temple Mount. While I believe the church must prepare financially for this time, I believe that the patterns of recent history indicate that September 13, 2015 will be a pivotal day in the history of the Israeli Palestinian conflicts. Why do I think so? Let’s consult recent history again.
In the interest of time, let me quickly recount some events in the dispute over land in Israel. Too coincidental to be coincidental, the date September 13th has been a major part of these events. Let’s review:
Oslo Accord, September 13,1993
- On September 13, 1993 Yitzhak Rabin, Yasser Arafat and Bill Clinton met at Camp David and signed what became known as the Oslo Accord which set a date for Israel to give land back to Palestine starting on a specific date 7 years later in the year 2000. That specific date was September 13, 2000.
- On September 13, 2000, the 7 year peace treaty signed 7 years earlier was annulled when Arafat walked out of the meeting rejecting Israel’s concessions. A conflict then erupts on the Temple Mount between the Jews and the Palestinians, the sons of Abraham, in conflict over the Temple Mount.
Temple Mount Conflict in 2000
- On September 13, 2008 (just before the worst day in the history of the stock market, September 29,2008), Prime Minister Olmert presented Palestinian leader Abbas with a land proposal, in which a concession of land would result in sovereignty of the Temple Mount being handed over to an international body which would include the United States. Abbas refused.
- On September 13, 2015, is it possible that a land deal may or may not be reached in Israel that would bring about such instability that the world’s financial systems may react adversely? Is it possible that this idea of a sovereign body, controlling the Temple mount and possibly even being led by a charismatic leader (anti-Christ) accepted by both the Jews and the Arab nations? We do not know for sure but perhaps this is when the work on rebuilding the Temple would either begin or conclude. The Temple Institute has recently announced that at this time it stands ready to begin construction as preliminary plans and the creation of the implements have been completed. Perhaps it is the day of a major conflict concerning the Temple Mount that enables the process of the foregoing to begin and sends the world’s financial systems into a tailspin. We don’t know, but what we do know is that in spite of it all, it is all part of the master plan of redemption of a loving God entering its final stages before the calling away of the church and the subsequent establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth
Needless to say…we are on the cusp of some very interesting times prophetically as the players in the US and world governments, especially those of the Middle East unknowingly act out a prophetic script outlined in the Bible to the smallest detail. They are unaware that a loving God is warning them of impending judgment and leaving His fingerprints in so called “coincidences” which follow the Jewish customs, dates, feasts and biblical laws. As I have discussed extensively in my recent book Secrets of a Supernatural World, God leaves His fingerprints in numeric evidences found throughout the events of mankind and frequently in the last decade as a sign for those who would seek Him, a sign revealing that He is there working behind the scenes and carrying out His promises to His people to redeem the world from the grasp of evil and eradicating it once and for all eternity.
In the light of the foregoing information which as I stated reveals that we on the cusp of some very significant events occurring, I think some further discussion about an Old Rabbi and the New Pope is in order. Biblical prophecy is infallible and extra biblical prophecy must be judged on its accuracy and how it lines up with the infallibility of biblical prophecy. We now with that guideline firmly in place must consider two extensive extra-biblical ancient prophecies which have proven to be incredibly accurate, both uttered in within 70 years of each other in the 12th century. These utterances were both given about midway through the 174 year period when the crusades to the Holy Land were being conducted by the Roman Catholic Church. One was uttered in Germany by an old Rabbi about Jerusalem and the time of Messiah’s return and the other by an Irish bishop regarding the Popes.
An Old Rabbi and the New Pope
First let me briefly discuss the Prophesy of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel who died in 1217 AD. In the latter part of the 12th century He wrote a prophesy concerning Jerusalem which in the light of our discussion above, you will find intriguing I am sure, especially when you consider how accurate it is from the vantage point of looking backwards at what the Rabbi was looking forward at in his prophecy. Here is what He said which is significant to our discussion. Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel wrote:
“When the Ottomans (Turks) conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
Judah the Pious as this Rabbi was also known looked into the future with amazing accuracy as we now can see as we look back. However it would be exactly 300 years before the first part of his prophesy came true. Let me briefly review his writing stated above part by part in the light of recorded history.
“When the Ottomans (Turks) conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees”…
In 1517 AD, Jerusalem was conquered by the Ottomans or the Turks just as Rabbi Judah had prophesied over 300 years earlier. He also said that they would rule over Jerusalem for 8 Jubilees. Since a Jubilee is a period of 50 years, that means the Ottomans would rule over Jerusalem for 400 years! As we recounted in Part I and above, it was in 1917, the year of Jubilee, our first in a pattern of 3 years of Jubilee that General Allenby of the British army captured Jerusalem from the Turks and Jews began to return to their homeland. Let’s do the math; 1917 - 1517 = 400 years!
“Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee” …
From the year of Jubilee 1916 - 1917 until the next Jubilee year which started in 1966-67, no one ruled over Jerusalem as the British continued to maintain order while Jews returned and reorganized in the land of Israel and then became a restored nation in 1948 after World War II. However Jerusalem was still under Arab/Muslim domination.
“…and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation”…
Interestingly Rabbi Judah speaks of Jerusalem coming back into the possession of the Jewish nation which in his time had ceased to exist in reality. His statement implies that when Jerusalem came back into the hands of the Jewish nation which it did during the 6 Day War in 1966-67, the second year of Jubilee in our pattern of 3, the nation is implied by his statement to already exist! In fact it did…as of 1948!
“…which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
This is the Jubilee (50 year period) in which we now are living! Rabbi Judah has been incredibly accurate so far…Is it possible we will see the Messiah come at this time? Remember, Rabbi Judah was an orthodox Jew, one who rejects Jesus Christ as Messiah…so the Messiah he is looking for is…the anti-Christ! The one he was looking for will come, win the Jew’s trust and then will betray them causing them to recognize the true Messiah, Yeshua Ha Meshiach, Jesus the Christ! Yes, if the rabbi’s accuracy continues…this next Jubilee would usher in the appearance of both the false and then subsequently the true Messiah!
Amazing! Now how about the other prophecy, the one issued by the Irish bishop, St. Malachy? This prophecy remained hidden in the archives of the Vatican since it was given to Pope Innocent II in 1139 AD by St. Malachy until it was discovered in 1590. It has become known as the “Prophecy of the Popes”. Again, the accuracy of St. Malachy’s prophecy has proven to be incredibly accurate.
In this prophecy, Malachy stated that there would be 112 more Popes after Innocent II. The prophecy gave information regarding each of the popes which have been accurate, up to and including Pope Benedict. Reviewing a history of the popes alongside Malchy’s prophecy is intriguing indeed. Even when the conclave who is aware of the prophecy has tried to avoid fulfilling it, their efforts fall short. This was very evident in the election of Pope Benedict the 111th pope since Innocent II, who just resigned. The sign of the 111th pope was to be olives. Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict) had no connection to olives…but when he chose the name Pope Benedict after St. Benedict that changed. Benedict founded the Benedictine order, the sign of which is…you guessed it….the olive.
That brings us to the new pope just elected in March 2013, the Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the 112th and according to Malachy, also the final pope. While born in Argentina, he is the son of Italian or Roman parents which as you will see is important to the prophecy.
First, let’s read what Malachy said regarding this pope;
“In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.” (The Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913 edition.)
On the surface, as with Benedict, things don’t seem to connect but as things developed and more was learned the connections become more apparent. Malachy’s prophesy indicates that this pope will apparently be very popular and will be seen as a good shepherd but underneath all of that is a plan, and not a heavenly one. Let’s explore this further.
Cardinal Bergoglio like his predecessors chose a new name to be known as while Pope. The new pope has chosen the name Pope Francis after St. Francis of Assisi. It is incredible that he chose this name for two reasons:
- St Francis of Assisi carried the name Francis which was not his real name but a nick name he was affectionately called by his father. The name means “the Frenchman” which is why St. Francis is often thought of as being French. However St. Francis was of Roman or Italian descent and his given name at birth was Giovanni di Pietro de Bernadone. The last part of his name is translated “Peter the Roman” the prophesied name of the last pope by St. Malachy!
1.If the fact above is not startling enough…consider another prophesy concerning the last pope given by the current pope’s namesake Francis of Assisi himself. Francis of Assisi the current Pope’s namesake said that when the last pope arrived, he would be under the control of Satan and that he would be loved by the people. St. Francis’ prophecy indicates that the last pope could in fact be the false prophet spoken of in the book of Revelation. The false prophet, like the anti-christ or man of sin according to the Scripture would also have a ruling seat in Jerusalem. Consider this…According to Israel National News on February 1, 2013, an agreement was drafted between Israel and the Vatican, giving the Pope an official seat on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, in the room where the Last Supper is believed to have been celebrated, and where researchers think the Jewish Kings David and Solomon of Judea, are buried.
In the light of the above, let us consider the background of Pope Francis who is also the first Jesuit to be elected Pope. The Jesuits were originally formed by Ignatius Loyola to combat Protestantism and have had a history of being at odds with the policies of the Vatican. In specific, the Jesuits disagree with the Vatican’s teachings and papal directives such as those on abortion, birth control, women in ministry, homosexuality and liberation theology. Most of you are familiar with these issues but most may not be familiar with the theology known as Liberation Theology so let me expound on that point.
Liberation theology focuses on the poor and needy and looks to the philosophies of Socialism and Marxism to solve the world’s problems in this area. This as well as the above listed disagreements explains why the Jesuits have been at odds with traditional Catholicism of the Vatican over the years.
The satanic inspired government of the anti Christ and of the globalists begins as a democratic socialist government, leading to a pure socialistic and then communistic government led by charismatic leaders who then betray the very people who put them into power. This underscores the dangers of the globalist inspired leadership in America which tries to wrestle away conservative biblical values from the American people.
Yes, the year of Jubilee is approaching and it definitely holds some unfolding plans of satan, but it also holds the will and purpose of God to finish His plan of redemption, rapture His people to accompany the Messiah on His second coming, this time in military fashion, defeating the forces of satan and establishing His Kingdom upon the earth. Malachy’s prophecy ends with the “City of Seven Hills” being destroyed and the “Formidable Judge judging His people”. The Vatican located in Rome, is built on 7 hills and that “Formidable Judge” is none other than the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Himself, Jesus Christ!
Right now this “Formidable Judge” full of love for His people wants His people to be like the sons of Issachar, discerning the times and being about the business of His Kingdom. He wants them to gain the knowledge He is putting out to His church for as He said… "without knowledge, the people perish” (Hosea 4:6). As I previously stated, we are not setting firm dates here, but we are doing what Proverbs talks about, that “it is the “glory (honor) of God to conceal a matter and to search out a matter is the glory (honor) of kings” (Proverbs 25:2). One thing is for certain, the times and the season is at hand for the manifestation and fulfillment of the Kingdom of our LORD Jesus Christ to be established upon the Earth.
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a Crown of Righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them that love his appearing.” (2Timothy 4:8)
God has reserved a very special Crown referred to as the “Watcher’s Crown for all who have set their eyes Heavenward in expectation of Jesus’ return. These faithful Believers are called to live a faithful and Godly life while they wait for the blessed hope of the glorious appearing of the LORD Jesus Christ (Titus 2:12-13) who said that when we see these things happen to watch…”He comes quickly and his reward is with Him, and He will reward everyone according to what they have done”. (Revelation 22:12)
I delayed publishing this post because the blog and especially the previous posts regarding this date have increased in popularity as these posts have been posted and reposted again and again on Facebook and other social media sites and on blogs. Visits to this blog have been in the thousands.
Now once again I will share some things about this date that when added to and compared with the other things I listed in Part 1 and Part 2 it is even more startling and astounding regarding the events of this date that I repeatedly received in dreams in the last 5 to 6 years.
Review of Parts 1 and 2
September 13, 2015 was a date that kept reoccurring in dreams I had which started sometime in 2008 and continued to prompt me to research and discover a number of things regarding this specific date as well as the throughout last decade and throughout the last 100 years. I have presented this information to a number of people in written form and during public presentations in recent years.
The 29th of the Hebrew month Elul in the year 5775 is September 13, 2015 which as I stated in Part 1 is the next “Day of Remission” or the Hebrew “Shemittah”. That date also begins the next year of Jubilee. I pointed out that the number 3 is a number of divine order and also has significance in that the Bible states that something is confirmed upon the witness of 2 or 3 people or series of events. I shared that if we assume that the date of my dream is a number 3 in a series of 3 events, therefore something significant should have happened on the previous 2 Shemitahs and also the previous 2 years of Jubilee.
In reading Part 1 and 2 you learned that indeed something very significant happened as the previous 2 Shemittah’s (which only occur on the 29th of Elul once every 7 years). These last two Days of Remission were the two worst days in the history of the Stock Market. The significance is that Shemittah calls for a day which means literally in the Hebrew “to let fall”. It is a day when debts were to be cancelled. We must conclude using the divine order of 3 that another even greater financial collapse might occur on the next Shemittah in our group of 3! The next Day of Remission or Shemittah begins September 13, 2015.
The Year of Jubilee also has a connection to debts being cancelled as well but also calls for property reverting back to its original owner. You learned in Part 1 and 2 that indeed the two previous years of Jubilee had to do with land, specifically land in Israel returning to its original owner. In 1917-1918, the number 1 Year of Jubilee in our group of 3, General Allenby captured Jerusalem from the Turks and in 1966-67, our number 2 Year of Jubilee, Israel captured Jerusalem in the 6 day war. We must conclude that the next Year of Jubilee must also hold some significance regarding land in Israel returning to its original owner. We discussed the possibilities of what might occur previously in this discussion.
Now I wish to restate here as I did in Part 2 that I am not setting any dates but simply pointing out that something very unusual is happening on or about that September 13, 2015 date or in the year to follow. I shared that the Lord who shares His secrets with His friends (Mark 4:11, Daniel 2:47, Amos 3:7) is currently sharing and preparing His church for something significant in the reestablishment of His Kingdom! We have seen throughout history and especially as it relates to the life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ that the Hebrew calendar based on the Moon as well as the Jewish festivals have proven to be times when God has fulfilled the prophetic Word. One of many examples of this would be that Jesus’ death and resurrection occurred on Passover!
So what else besides that which we already discussed in the previous parts is planned according the Hebrew calendar for this special date in my reoccurring dream?
September 13, 2015
It is a rare occurrence that one date should have such significance on the Hebrew (Lunar Based) calendars in that there are multiple events or Holy Days occurring on that same date as well as the corresponding significance of that time or season of the year in which the date occurs. We have not discussed in any of the preceding discussion, the most obvious event that will occur on that date. Let us take a look at that event and the time of year surrounding it to gain an understanding of the significance of this date in addition to the other important occurrences at that time discussed in Part 1 and 2 and also in Part 4 to follow soon after this posting!
September 13th 2015 is Rosh Hashanah, the “head of the year” or more commonly known as the Jewish New Year. It is the date of the Jewish festival known as the “Feast of Trumpets”. Rosh Hashanah is a 2-day celebration of the New Year that in 2015 begins at sunset on September 13th. The falling of Rosh Hashanah on this specific date is incredible when one considers that throughout the years, Rosh Hashanah has fallen on 30 different dates on the common (Gregorian) calendar, ranging from September 5th to October 5th! The probability of Rosh Hashanah falling on September 13th is estimated to likely happen once in every 76 to 100 years based on the New Moon calculations that determine it. However, the probability of it landing on that date, and that date also being the Day of Remission (Shemittah) and the beginning of the Year of Jubilee as well which occurs once in every 50 years is astronomical. Hmmm.
Rosh Hashanah in Jewish tradition is believed to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam, and is marked by the sounds of trumpet blasts on the Shofar (hollowed out ram’s horn) and the eating of special foods often dipped in honey as a hope for a sweet new year. Unlike the reveling of January 1st on the common calendar, Rosh Hashanah has deep spiritual significance and instead of partying like God is not watching, it is considered a day of judgment and a time to be sure one is right with their creator Almighty God. It is a time of introspection preparation and… judgment!
Amazing, but wait, we are not done yet!
Days of Awe
September 13th 2015 also begins what is known as the “Days of Awe” or “Yamim Noraim”. The Days of Awe sometimes are also referred to as the “Days of Repentance”. The Days of Awe continue for 10 days for the purpose of providing an opportunity to repent before the next high holiday of “Yom Kippur” or “Day of Atonement” occurs on the Jewish calendar. Yom Kippur occurs on September 22nd through 23rd in the year 2015, 10 days after September 13th. Yom Kippur is the day of deliverance and salvation!
According to Jewish traditions, God has books in which He inscribes the names of those who will live and who will die…speaking of eternal life and eternal death. The book can be altered during the Days of Awe through repentance but they become sealed on Yom Kippur. The Sabbath or Shabbat, which occurs during these Days of Awe, is known as “the Sabbath of the Return”. Ok…I know what some of you are thinking…more on this Sabbath later!
Hang on, Hang on…we are not done yet!
Some may think, I am trying to set a date here, but I am not. “No man knows the day or the hour” as Jesus said. However He did say that we would know the “times and the season” even to the point that we would know when His return was “even at the door” knocking. We cannot know the day or the hour in which Jesus comes. The day and the hour differ anyway around the world. My friends in Papua New Guinea and Australia will be awakening from their sleep on September 14th while my friends on the west coast of the United States will be experiencing sundown on Sunday September 13th. While Israel remains the center of the earth and the center of time, we cannot be sure of what hour, or what day an event may happen. The financial markets in Asia will be open Monday morning the 14th at the same time it is sundown in the United States on Sunday September 13th. Despite the day or the hour in which day or time zone you are in, you definitely can hear the Savior knocking at the door. Jesus said that just as you can recognize the signs of the weather (Luke 12) that we most certainly can discern the times just as we can discern the “face of the sky”. We may not know the precise time it will rain, but we can see that it is coming at any minute! Don’t believe this? I suggest you read Jesus’ words in Luke Chapter 12.
Let’s explore with that in mind, not just these dates but also the times and the seasons in which they occur!
Yeah, it gets even better!
All of the events we discussed in all three parts occur in the Month of Elul or (are you ready for this) the “Month of the Bride”! The days of the Month of Elul are also called the “High Holy Days” and also the days when “The King is in the Field” I could write a post on each one of these but lets just explore them briefly.
Month of the Bride
The name Elul is really an acronym of Hebrew letters from which the reference Month of the Bride comes. The reference comes from Song of Solomon 6:3 which describes a time of intimacy which is initiated by the Bride as opposed to 2:6 where the intimacy is initiated by the Groom.
The month of Elul is a time of special closeness between the Divine Groom and His bride Israel, which since Calvary extends to the Church, called the “Bride of Christ” in the New Testament. This is alluded to by the fact that, in Hebrew, the first letters of the verse "I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me" (ani ledodi v'dodi li) spell the word… Elul!
Obviously something very special happens between Christ and His Bride during this time, and it appears to be a time when the Bride…are you ready for this…comes in to Him! Get it? She goes to Him rather than He coming to her, in a Rapture like experience.
High Holy Days
Also included in this “time and season” is a time referred to as the “High Holy Days” which include the time between the 1st of Elul and Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement. These 40 days represent the days Moses spent on Mount Sinai, ascending it for the second time to receive the replacement tablets for the ones he broke upon discovering that the Israelites had rebelled against God while He was on the mountain the first time. Upon their judgment and repentance, these days represent their time of reconciliation to God and His ways. Moses upon the Mount prayed according to Jewish tradition for God’s mercy on a people who had rebelled and disobeyed. The High Holy Days is a call to repent and to accept the mercy of the Creator.
The King is in the Field
There is a season and a time in Jewish tradition and referenced in the Scriptures as the time when “the King is in the Field”. September 13, 2015 and the events which will fall on it all occur at the end of the celebration during the month of Elul or when “the King is in the Field”. The King is in the Field references a time when the King would come out of his palace and come to the city, waiting outside the city while his servants would go to the city and gather up the people, announcing that the “King is in the Field” and was waiting to receive any and all from the lowest servant to the nobility.
Now I know some of you familiar with the Scriptures have already picked up the significance and parallels of some of the terminology of such phrases as...the Sabbath of the Return…the Month of the Bride…and the King is in the Field and have asked yourself; Is it possible that when all these events coincide, the Rapture or “calling away” of the Church will occur on or around these events or during that Year of Jubilee which continues until the next Rosh Hashanah? Is it possible that when the Book is sealed on Yom Kippur, that it will contain the names of those who will soon be raptured?
Actually, many scholars have believed that the event known as the Rapture will occur at that time of the year during the Month of the Bride when the King is in the Field and particularly on Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah. Yes the Rapture not only a time of calling away but also a time of judgment on those whose names are not written in that book which is sealed on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Amos 3:6 says that at the “sound of the Trumpet the people tremble”. The first blast of the trumpet on Rosh Hashanah is a call to repentance to avoid judgment upon the sealing of the book 10 days later on Yom Kippur.
Again, I am not setting dates, just noting the “times and the seasons” which in 2015 occur with mind boggling significance as we have seen and in a way that is as I like to say; “too coincidental to be coincidental”!
However, as we discussed, there is some major significance to the possibility that that Rapture could occur around the time of 2015-2016 in that Year of Jubilee and even on that Feast of Trumpets. There are a number of clues in Scripture and I will discuss them in the next part, Part 4 of this extensive multi part blog posting. I would share them here but desire that you learn the significance of all that which is recorded in Parts 1-3 before we investigate further…September 13, 2015 and its significance to the soon coming King Jesus Christ to claim His Bride.
September 13 2015, Part 4, “The Month of the Bride”
As I briefly stated in Part 3, the Month of the Bride is a key piece in understanding the season in which we now live and in particular, late summer and autumn of 2015. For quick review in Part 3 I stated the following regarding the significance of the month of Elul as follows:
“The name Elul is really an acronym of Hebrew letters from which the reference Month of the Bride comes. The reference comes from Song of Solomon 6:3 which describes a time of intimacy which is initiated by the Bride as opposed to verse 2:6 where the intimacy is initiated by the Groom.
The month of Elul is a time of special closeness between the Divine Groom and His bride Israel, which since Calvary extends to the Church, called the “Bride of Christ” in the New Testament. This is alluded to by the fact that, in Hebrew, the first letters of the verse "I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me" (ani ledodi v'dodi li) spell the word… Elul!
Obviously something very special happens between Christ and His Bride during this time, and it appears to be a time when the Bride…are you ready for this…comes in to Him! Get it? She goes to Him rather than He coming to her, in a Rapture like experience.”
The month of the Bride therefore ends on our date of September 13, 2015, which as we have learned is also Rosh Hashanah or the “Feasts of Trumpets” among other significant occurrences.
Now don’t get me wrong here, as I have said we are not setting any specific dates, just noting the more than coincidental events occurring on or about this date and in the year preceding and in the year to follow. Jesus said that we would not know the day or the hour, but we would discern the times and the seasons. When we consider all the information in parts 1 through 3, just as when the days at the end of summer get cooler and we know fall and winter will soon be here, we definitely can recognize the prophetic season that is coming upon us.
Lets just quickly summarize all that the date and the seasons surrounding the date of September 13, 2015 hold. Here is a list of the things we discussed regarding the date itself:
Using the Hebrew/Jewish Calendar and the corresponding date of the 29th of Elul:
- It is the next Day of Remission or “Shemmitah”, a day to “let fall” in a divine order of 3 where the two previous days were notably the worst days in the history of the stock market.
- The next year of Jubilee 2015 to 2016 begins at sundown on that date and it is the 7th Jubilee year in the number of completion, the number 7, of 7 Days of Remission totaling 49 years and it is the 3rd year of Jubilee in a Divine order of 3 in which the previous two Years of Jubilee had to do with land in Jerusalem reverting back to Israel, its original owner.
From the standpoint of the Gregorian calendar, the date September 13th has been a reoccurring date in the land for peace talks in Israel:
- 9/13/1993, the signing of the Oslo Accord by Yassir Arafat, Yitzak Rabin and Bill Clinton.
- 9/13/2000, the failure of the Oslo Accord resulting in violence on the Temple Mount.
- 9/13/2008, the failure of a peace deal between Prime Minister Olmert and Palestinian leader Abbas, when Abbas walked out of the meeting protesting the proposal by Olmert.
We also previously discussed that 9/13/2015 also occurs in the Jewish calendar season known as the High Holy Days. The High Holy Days include the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashannah or “Feast of Trumpets”, and “the Days of Awe” leading to Yom Kippur or the “Day of Atonement”. These two holidays are then followed by Succot or the “Feast of Tabernacles”. It is also the Season when “the King is in the Field” ( see part 3) and also at the end of “the Month of the Bride” which we will discuss further in a moment.
As we have seen throughout history, the LORD has always carried out His plan of redemption of the world with key events occurring on the Jewish holidays. While this generally goes unnoticed by most of the world and is certainly not reported in the media, the regularity in history of God doing such a thing is as I have said, “too coincidental to be coincidental”. The most glaring example is when Jesus, “the lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world” was crucified on the Jewish Holiday of Passover, a day commemorating the sacrifice of a lamb by Moses and the Jews providing them deliverance out of the servitude of Egypt. Coincidence? No planned by someone who controls all the events of mankind, ordained the Jewish holidays and feasts and uses them to foretell and achieve His final purpose.
Now with all that we discussed in Parts 1 through 3 found on the previous blog pages as a backdrop, let us discuss an astounding event that occurs on the last day of the “Month of the Bride” which puts an exclamation mark on that month in 2015. As we discussed in Part 3, the high holiday of Rosh Hashanah or “Feast of Trumpets” or the Jewish New Year occurs on the last day of “the Month of the Bride (Elul). In Part 3, I noted the following about this rare, notable occurrence:
“September 13th 2015 is Rosh Hashanah, the “head of the year” or more commonly known as the Jewish New Year. It is the date of the Jewish festival known as the “Feast of Trumpets”. Rosh Hashanah is a 2-day celebration of the New Year that in 2015 begins at sunset on September 13th. The falling of Rosh Hashanah on this specific date is incredible when one considers that throughout the years, Rosh Hashanah has fallen on 30 different dates on the common (Gregorian) calendar, ranging from September 5th to October 5th! The probability of Rosh Hashanah falling on September 13th is estimated to likely happen once in every 76 to 100 years based on the New Moon calculations that determine it. However, the probability of it landing on that date, and that date also being the Day of Remission (Shemittah) and the beginning of the Year of Jubilee as well which occurs once in every 7 and 50 years respectively is astronomical. Hmmm.
Rosh Hashanah in Jewish tradition is believed to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam, and is marked by the sounds of trumpet blasts on the Shofar (hollowed out ram’s horn) and the eating of special foods often dipped in honey as a hope for a sweet new year. Unlike the reveling of January 1st on the common calendar, Rosh Hashanah has deep spiritual significance and instead of partying like God is not watching, it is considered a day of judgment and a time to be sure one is right with their creator Almighty God. It is a time of introspection preparation and… judgment!”
Now again I caution you that I am not setting a date here but there are some things we must consider as we investigate these rare occurrences in the light of the fact that God historically has done significant things at significant times. In fact, many theologians have long agreed and surmised that the next event on the prophetic calendar, the “Calling away” or the “Rapture of the Church” as it is known will occur on the “Feast of Trumpets”, Rosh Hashanah!
Now I know there are differing views about the timing of the Rapture relative to the time of Tribulation spoken of in Revelation. I addressed this confusion previously in my book Secrets of a Supernatural World (See http://amzn.to/1afHIfw ) and also on this blog in a very popular post where I talk about much of the confusion partly resulting from how we view events in time, in comparison to how a timeless God views events occurring in time. (See http://bit.ly/HtvpWd ) While in my lifetime I waivered between the views, my current view of the Rapture is as a result of the revelations of my near death experience and the Scriptures as well as Jewish traditions highlighted in those Revelations. Since my experience, I do not debate, for to me, there is no debate!
Do I think the Rapture will occur on September 13, 2015? Not necessarily, although it could, I think this will be a warning of impending judgment and a wake up call the Church to begin to fulfill its full purpose in these times. The warning and wake up call could spawn a final great revival and a move of the Spirit, led by the Church, while evil is held at bay by the hand of God. Perhaps it will occur at the end of the year of Jubilee, a year later on Rosh Hashanah, perhaps not, but I do believe based on how God has fulfilled other Messianic prophesies, it will occur on Rosh Hashanah!
Regardless of the exact time, we must consider some important facts in the light of Scripture, Jewish tradition and the God ordained holidays. Lets consider them here.
The term “Rapture” is not found in Scripture itself but originated from the Latin word used to translate the original Greek word for “catching away” found in I Thessalonians 4 verse 17. The term as it is used in the original Greek literally means to “yank out of harm’s way by force”, as someone might do to pull you out of the way of a speeding car. It is interesting to read other Scriptures using this Greek word in the light of the event spoken of in this passage. (See Acts 8:39; 2 Corinthians 12: 2,4; Revelation 12:5; and Matthew 11:12) When you “catch” a ball, you remove it from its flight or trajectory, stopping it, placing it in a controlled environment in the safety of your hands before it crashes to the ground bouncing until it finally comes to rest having lost its power. Those raptured will be “caught” mid flight and moved “away” to a place of safety as these verses imply.
When does that occur? I believe it will occur on Rosh Hashanah when God’s final purpose for the Church is fulfilled, then He will “yank us out of harm’s way” to pour out the wrath of judgment on all those who chose not to follow Christ and therefore to remain unforgiven.
Here is the biggest reason I believe that the church leaves before literally “all hell breaks lose”. On Calvary, Jesus who “knew no sin” was “made sin for us” (2 Corinthians 5:21) so that we would be made righteous! Then the wrath of God was poured out on Jesus in His horrible beatings and crucifixion and most of all God’s rejection! He had no personal sin and He took our sin on Himself for us because of our obedience in the acceptance of His judgment in our place. This then makes us righteous as this verse says. Colossians 3:6 says that the wrath of God comes upon the ”children of disobedience”, not the obedient! Why would God pour out His wrath on Jesus for our sake, and then turn around and do it to us too? Yes, some believers are persecuted and even killed for the cause of Christ, and I am sure for them, it is the Tribulation, but it is not the Great Tribulation that comes upon all mankind! Jesus said we “will have tribulations and persecutions” but the Scriptures clearly teach that the “wrath of God” is not intended for the obedient who receive and follow the LORD Jesus Christ!
I always make sure that what I understand lines up with Scripture. I used to believe differently in regards to the Rapture and I have extensively studied the different viewpoints and looked at the evidence. I concluded that those views neither line up completely with Scripture nor with my personal near-death encounter. I say therefore to those who may hold a different view and are reading this, to hang in there and read on. I used to hold your views and then I had to admit later that I was not seeing things clearly. I admit that a near death experience helps you to do that easier, for as I have said since then, “when one encounters the Glory of the LORD, something inside them dies!”
There are a number of biblical clues that the rapture is: 1) in the not to distant future, 2) occurs on Rosh Hashanah or the “Feast of Trumpets” and 3) occurs at the beginning of the Tribulation if not before. Let us look at these individually.
- The Rapture of the Church is the next event on the prophetic calendar as one looks at the prophetic Word and compares that to the events of this world and especially in the Middle East. A prophetically educated observer must conclude that it is imminent relative to historical time. When you also consider the things that we have discussed in Parts 1 through 3 of this series, one must conclude that we are on the cusp of the prophetic, messianic fulfillment of the Feasts of Trumpets. Let me again state for clarity; “Do I think that the Rapture will occur on or about the date of my dream, September 13,2015?” It could very well but I do not discern that it will. I believe the events leading up to and occurring at that time will be a warning to the people of the earth regarding impending judgment, a call to repentance as well as a wakeup call to the Body of Christ to begin to take the full authority given them and to move in the Spirit in the last great harvest of souls for the coming Kingdom. The hand of God will stay the evil forces while the Holy Spirit goes throughout the world to harvest the final souls. At that point He will “catch away” or “yank out of harms way” those who have qualified themselves to be of the Kingdom before allowing wrath to be poured out on those who did not choose to follow Christ, perhaps on the following Rosh Hashanah at the end of the year of Jubilee, perhaps not…”no man knows the day or the hour”.
- Theologians for many years have believed that major prophetic events of the end times would occur on the Jewish Feast Holidays. They believe this because historically they have done so and each has a symbolic significance that corresponds with God’s redemptive plan for the world through Jesus Christ. There is also evidence in Scripture and in the Jewish customs and even more specifically, the Jewish Wedding! Remember that Rosh Hashanah in 2015 occurs on the last day of the Month of the Bride! With that in mind let us consider for a moment the Jewish Wedding.
In Isaiah 26:20 – 21, we read a verse referencing the future Rapture or “catching away” of the people of God:
“Come my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” (KJV)
The casual reader of these verses reading without an understanding of the Jewish Wedding may not see the significance here in the terminology especially in the light of the original Hebrew language. There is so much here to pull out, that this discussion would become extensive so I will just hit on the highlights. Remember that symbolically, the Bride represents the church and the Bridegroom represents Jesus Christ.
The Bride in the Jewish wedding never “knows the day or the hour” that the Bridegroom would come for her (Jesus said, “No man knoweth the day or the hour” in regards to His coming). When in the Jewish wedding, the groom came for the bride he would come secretly (the calling away or rapture of the church will create a mystery and a surprise disappearance to the world). She would be “lifted up” (as in caught up) and carried by 4 men in a seat on poles (symbolizing the 4 corners of the world, north, east, south and west) and followed by 10 virgins carrying lamps of oil and accompanied by singers and dancers (in Scripture, lamps symbolize the spirit of man and the oil the Holy Spirit which come together in obedience at the moment of salvation. Jesus referred to this in the Parable of 10 virgins indicating that some will be prepared and some will not when the Bridegroom comes. The singers represent a jubilant time of rejoicing praise). The Bride and the groom then enter a bridal chamber or “hoopa” where they remain for 7 days and are concealed or hidden together. (This represents the hiding or concealment of the Bride of Christ or the Church for a period of 7 years known as the tribulation period). Here we now have a better understanding of the phrase from Isaiah 26:20; ““Come my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little moment…” There is further confirmation that Rosh Hashanah plays a role here because of the other name for that Jewish holiday, “Yom Hachish” or to be translated, “Day of Hiding”! The door is very significant here as we consider the “Rapture” verse found in Revelation 4:1. The apostle John in his vision said; “I looked, and, behold a door was opened in heaven; and the first voice which I heard as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither…”. I have highlighted the key words here to call your attention to a chamber door that is opened upon the sound of a trumpet with the command to come!
The verse in Isaiah 26 continues; … until the indignation be overpast. For behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”
The word “indignation” is translated from a Hebrew word which literally means “to froth at the mouth” and refers to extreme anger fury or wrath coming from the LORD Himself who comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth but notice here that He does so only after he hides or conceals His bride, bringing her into the chamber and shutting the door for 7 years. This verse also applies as we now consider the 3rd type of biblical clue.
- The Bride as we have seen is hidden away in the Bridal Chamber while God pours out His wrath on the disobedient. The Bridegroom had previously sacrificed His life by allowing Himself to be crucified and to “be made sin for us” (2 Corinthians 5:21) as we had discussed above. God then turned His back on Jesus, “forsaking Him” (Jesus said, “my God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?”) and allowed His entire wrath to be poured out on His son who had no sin of His own. Paul tells us in Ephesians 5:6 and Colossians 3:6 that the wrath of God will be poured out upon the “children of disobedience” as in contrast to those who became obedient in following Christ and accepting His sacrifice as atonement for their sins. Why would God deliver us from wrath through Jesus only to turn around and pour it out upon us too? This wrath of God is poured out on those who were not hidden away in the chamber when the obedient ones were “yanked out of harms way” and caught up to the marital chamber when a door opened in heaven and a voice like a trumpet said “Come up here”!
There are other biblical clues as well and what is commonly referred to as pre-types which is an Old Testament event which foreshadows a future prophetic event but we will not take time to explore them all here, I think the point has been made.
In conclusion to this 4 part series, I would like to go back to 2007, when I first began having the reoccurring dreams in which the date September 13, 2015 kept occurring and to the first discovery I made when I began to search out what it was the LORD wanted me to discover about that date.
The first thing if you recall which I mentioned in Part 1 was that I discovered that an eclipse of the sun was to take place on that date. That discovery was soon paled by the discoveries I made regarding that date’s relation to the Hebrew date of the 29th of Elul and the Day of Remission, the stock markets, the Years of Jubilee and so on as we have discussed in this series.
However, I want you to recognize that it by itself seems insignificant, but when we put it in the perspective as a piece of a greater puzzle, we see that the darkened sun in a total eclipse is part of a greater sign. You see, the Apostle Peter in Acts 2:20 echoed the words of the prophet Joel in Joel 2:31 when he said that before that “notable day of the LORD” would come there would be signs in the heavens and in the earth…signs that would have to be unusual, different from the common place ones such as an eclipse I would think, wouldn’t you?
You see, Joel and Peter both said that the sun should be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before that great day of the LORD. So what, we have had total eclipses and red or “blood” moons before haven’t we? Yes we have but not in a way which we are going to see them over the next two years! Yes, we are going to have 2 eclipses (which symbolize judgment on the nations) and 4 blood moons as we enter the season leading up to September 13, 2015. Not only are we having these signs in the heavens but they all have been orchestrated by God to fall on…yep you guessed it…Jewish holidays! Here is when they will happen and the corresponding holiday on which the blood moons will be seen:
Blood Moon: Passover 4/15/2014
Blood Moon: Sukkot (Tabernacles) 10/08/2014
Eclipse: Adar 29 Nissan 1 beginning of Religious New Year, 3/20/2015
Blood Moon: Passover 4/04/2015
*Notice a blood moon two years in a row on Passover…Amazing!
Eclipse: Rosh Hashanah Feast of Trumpets, 9/13/2015 !!!
Blood Moon: Sukkot (Tabernacles): 9/28/2015
Hmmm, notice where the date of my dreams fit in? Coincidence? No… too coincidental to be coincidental don’t you think? There are two eclipses and 4 blood moons, 2 of them on successive years on Passover, and all of them occurring on holidays on the Jewish calendar. These appear to me to be fingerprints of a loving God, warning, desiring everyone to come to Him, sending a warning of impending judgment as well as a wake up call to His people to be about HIS business and bring in a final harvest of souls.
Let me end with the words of the Apostle Peter in Acts 2; “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood before that great and notable day of the LORD comes…And…
It shall come to pass that whosovever (that includes you) shall call on the name of the LORD shall be saved” (that means hidden, concealed, yanked out of harms way, raptured, taken in the chamber and the door shut, and kept from the wrath to come!)”
