News Letter 5844-028
26th day of the sixth month 5844 years after creation
September 27, 2008
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,
You can now listen to these News Letters on KMLS 101.9 American Jewish Radio at http://fm1019messianic.com/default.aspx They have many other good teachers there, so please tune in and have a listen on Tuesdays.
There is so much to say this week but I also want to finish our studies on the fall Holy Days, which is what I am going to do this week and I will give you my thoughts next week as we all get ready to leave for the Feast.
On Oct 2 The New Moon is expected to be sighted from Jerusalem. This is the Feast of Trumpets and is a Holy Day.
Make sure you read the article Category 5 Credit Market Hurricane! by Mike Larson for an up to date assessment of the current market conditions in the forum area under Economic Danger on the Near Horizon.
Before we get started know that this October is historically the month of the crash. Black October is dead ahead. Are you ready? Are you aware of this notoriety of October? This week a brother has sent me an e-mail from a think tank which has compiled all the information it can on the current financial crisis and the mood of the tax payer. They have said that October 7th 2008 the markets will crash. Will it? Are you ready if it does? Does it matter in the plan of Yahweh?
Lets take an overview look at recent events by reading the headlines of daily news.
$700 billion bailout is too little, too late to save ailing banks …
It does virtually nothing to stem mortgage defaults or to make credit available to cash starved companies and consumers …
And now, this credit contagion is spreading like wildfire through hundreds of retailers and other consumer companies nationwide …
October is the month that brought us the Crash of “29 and the Crash of 87 ” single-day declines in the Dow that would be the equivalent to 1,400 and 2,500 points in today’s market.
And next Wednesday, a new killer Black October begins. Notice when the Fall Holy Days are.
Wall Street is already beginning to realize that the government’s $700 billion bailout is only a drop in the bucket â€” nowhere near enough to save all the banks and lenders that are being killed by toxic mortgage investments.
Investors are already painfully aware that Washington is doing next to nothing to slow mortgage defaults … stabilize the housing market … or cause banks to begin making loans to consumers.
And just about everybody is beginning to see what we’ve been telling you for weeks now: Every company that sells its products on credit is getting killed by the consumer credit crunch … their earnings and profits are now threatened more than ever before … and their stock could be toast.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The credit contagion we’ve been warning you about all month is about to kick in with a vengeance. My mission is to make sure you’re ready. From Martin Weis
We told you in the DVD, to look in the kitchen and that where there was smoke, there is fire, as we talked to you about the massive debt adding up. This past week my wife and I went to the bank and locked in our mortgage for ten years. The bank manager came up and told my wife that everything I had told her back in February and again this week was happening just as I had told her. My wife told her not to tell me I was right or she could never live with me. Haha.
Here are the News Headlines from this past week and my comments.
Why does October have so Many disasters?
9th of Av until the feast is always trouble times for Israel because of what happened in the wilderness of Paran
Like a bowling ball coming across the Atlantic we saw Gustov, Hannah, Ike, and Josephine take aim at the USA.
It was Ike that did huge amounts of damage to Galveston, but before we could assess the damage Galveston was sent to the back pages as the new head line was the banking crisis.
Ike will end up being one of the most expensive storms in U.S. history.
Speaking of the bank failures, “This has been the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression,” NEW YORK TIMES
The economic crisis was the worst of his career, former Federal Reserve chief Alan Greenspan said, “Oh, by far.” Later, he called it a “once-in-a-century type of financial crisis.”
600 billion in bail outs but who is going to bail the USA.
With a national debt now pushing $10 trillion” well over $50 trillion if you include future liabilities like Social Security and Medicare and a yearly deficit now in the neighborhood of $400 billion, think about the global impact of America’s soon-coming economic meltdown
As of this morning, the national debt stands at over $10 trillion.
This year, the federal government is having to bail out a disaster-stricken region, on average, every five days.
The biggest rescue deal in British banking history was under way last night as the credit crisis reached new heights.
HBOS, the country’s biggest mortgage lender, was poised to accept an emergency takeover from rival Lloyds following the collapse of its share price.
China urges new currency, one that does not rely on the US.
One of the news stories that bothered me was the one about how many people stayed during Hurricane Ike in Galveston. More than one hundred thousand people refused to evacuate, even though they had heard the warnings and watched the news report and seen the effects as Ike went through Cuba and the Caribbean But they still did not leave.
They ignored the coming terror and stayed put. How many of you are ignoring the warnings that have been brought forward from this web site. The curses as they are defined in Lev 26.
Congress gets $700 billion financial bailout plan
In a related move, the U.S. government’s debt limit would be raised to $11.315 trillion from $10.615 trillion.
The crisis grew more acute this month with government takeovers of mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ; the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc ; Bank of America Corp’s shotgun agreement to buy Merrill Lynch & Co ; and a bailout of insurer AIG .
This came just six months after a government-backed rescue of investment bank Bear Stearns.
Money market fund assets dropped by a record $169.03 billion in the week ended September 17 as jittery investors pulled money out.
This one little news item has fallen off the radar of most. But stop and think about what will happen to all bonds and all credit and all investment vehicles if the money market funds are in jeopardy. The whole house of cards is in danger of eminent collapse.
I share this information with you brethren as it plays right into the third curse. Pestilence which is preceded and accompanied by famine. Famine is caused by drought which we have had and or to much rain which we have also had. It can also be caused by raising food prices, which have risen dramatically this year alone. My Wife just walked in the door and protested at just how much food has gone up this week alone. Those who live on a dollar a day and have to spend that dollar to live, can’t afford to pay two or three dollars for food which is what is happening right now.
But the thing that scares me most in all of this financial mess, the worst since the 1929 and some have also said it is biblical is size, the thing that scares me is how is it to be paid for. How are all these bail outs going to be paid for? No one wants to lend money any more. Things are getting tight on the lending front. If no one is going to by American Treasury bonds, then the US has to print more money if they are not already doing so. This will spur on inflation, and is why I locked in my mortgage for as long as I can.
Inflation will drive the price of food out the reach of many. So again I ask you brethren, are you ready for what is coming. We are in the times of Jacobs Trouble. We are Jacob.
You need to pray and to obey. Not just obey blindly. Prove every Holy Day and the Sabbatical year and know why you do as you do. Know it. Do not do traditional things if they are not in the scriptures. Read the latest article that Nehemia Gordan has sent out on Rosh Hashanah and Hanukah and stop doing traditions and begin to obey Yahweh in truth.
Now back to our study of the Eighth and final Holy Day and how it relates to the Jubilee cycle.
We read in 2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
It is with this knowledge that we understand the millennium week is seven thousand years long.
In Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” This 120 years can also be read 120 periods of time. 120 Jubilees.
If I am correct in saying that 120 Jubilees is 5880 years, that is 49 X 120 = 5880 years. Then we can divide 120 by 6 to get 20 Jubilee cycles. 5880 divided by 6 equals 980 years. Did Peter round up this 980 to a thousand? I can not say. If you will indulge me, please follow my line of thinking. I can not reconcile the difference between the 980 and 1000, except by rounding off the number. I admit this.
Yahweh told Adam in Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. And then in Genesis 5:4 After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. 5 So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
So Adam only lived 930 years and died as Yahweh warned he would in the same day. I am claiming that day is a total of 980 years. Adam died at 930 years.
The second day would end in the year 1960 after creation. That is 980 plus 980 equals 1960 years. The story of Noah is during this second day. In the year 1656 after creation (AC). We can read of the births after the flood up to Abraham in Genesis 11:10
10 This is the genealogy of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood
12 Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Salah
14 Salah lived thirty years, and begot Eber
16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg
18 Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu
20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug
22 Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor
24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot Terah
26 Now Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
When we add these years up we come to 1948AC. So we see that Abraham was born near the end of the second millennial day.
The end of third day would be 980 + 980 + 980 which would end at 2940 year AC It was at the beginning of this day that Abraham was given the promise, and it was at the end of this day that Solomon began the construction of the Temple.
Abraham was born 1948 AC.
The covenant was made with Abraham when he was 80 years old. ( 2028 AC)
430 years later Israel left Egypt (2458) (Exodus 12:40)
It was 480 years after this that Solomon began the temple (2938 AC) ( 1 Kings 6:1)
We must make a special note here. In Lev 25:1 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, 2 â€œSpeak to the children of Israel, and say to them: â€˜When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a Sabbath to the Lord. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit; 4 but in the seventh year there shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath to the Lord.
This is not telling us that we are to keep the Sabbatical and Jubilee year only when we are in the land. It is telling us that once we get there then we are to start the count. Once we get there. Not only when we are there. This is the excuse some are using in order not to obey Yahweh and keep His Sabbatical year.
In this scripture Yahweh is telling Moses that in the year they enter the land, the land shall have a Sabbath, and again when they enter the land that they shall begin to count out the Jubilee cycle of seven years. When they enter the land they are to start to count. This would be year one. Yahweh also says this is a Sabbath year. Or in fact a Jubilee year.
Is this right? Can it be so?
Lets add up what the scriptures tell us and find out.
As noted above Abraham was given the promise in 2028 AC. 430 years later Israel left Egypt. (2028 + 430 = 2458 AC)
In Numbers 1:1 Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt,
(2458 + 2 = 2460)
In Numbers 10: 11 Now it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle of the Testimony. 12 And the children of Israel set out from the Wilderness of Sinai on their journeys; then the cloud settled down in the Wilderness of Paran. 13 So they started out for the first time according to the command of the Lord by the hand of Moses.
Here again, it is the second year after they left Egypt and they went to Paran. And from Paran were sent the 12 spies for 40 days.
Number 13: 1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them.” 3 So Moses sent them from the Wilderness of Paran according to the command of the Lord, all of them men who were heads of the children of Israel.
But Israel brought back an evil account and Yahweh sentenced them to wander for 40 years in the wilderness. Numbers 14:33 And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness. 34 According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection.
It was on this very day, the Ninth of Av that Israel received this sentence to wander for 40 years. It was also on this very same day that the Temple Of Solomon and the Temple of Herod was destroyed. And as I have said in the beginning of this News Letter, the problems of modern Israel, the USA and UK, Canada and Australia and others, seems to be coming more and more in the fall during this time.
Even when we go to the Feast many things happen to us prior to the Holy Day season during this time. Something to think about.
Again back to our addition of years we have 2460 + 40 for a total of 2500 (AC). This was the year that Joshua entered the Promised land. You can start at the beginning of creation and add by 49 + 49 + 49 until you get a total of 2499 AC. This is 2499 years after creation as the 49th year of the Jubilee cycle. The 50th year would be the next year and also it would be the first year of the next count to seven. This is the year 2500 AC!!!!!
Once again our method of reckoning the Jubilee and scriptures are all in total agreement.
We stated before that the year King Solomon began the Temple was in 2938 AC ( 1 Kings 6:1) . In verse 38 we read that Solomon finished the Temple in all it’s details after seven years. In 1 Kings 8:1 we read how the Temple was dedicated in the 8th year after construction began in the seventh month . This is of interest on two accounts. One is found as we explain below, which shows how the 7 days are for cleansing and the eighth day is for Dedicating. The Temple also represents Yeshua. His birth, then 8 days later He was circumcised, (dedicated).
2938 was the end of the third day and the beginning of the fourth day. The temple was dedicated at the beginning of the fourth day which was 2940 AC. 2938 +8 = 2946 for the year of dedication.
980 + 980 + 980 + 980 = 3920 AC is the end of the fourth day. On this fourth day the Temple was finished and by the end of this fourth day the Temple would be destroyed. Why is this happening on the fourth day?
Daniel 9:26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
We are told that in the MIDDLE of the Week He, notice it is referring to the Messiah. That He would bring an end to sacrifice in the middle of the week. The Fourth Day.
The fourth day is also Wednesday. Does this sound like a Friday Crucifixion?
In Matt. 26:61 and said, “This fellow said, “I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.” ” This false witness is referring to Matt 12:38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
When you go to Jonah 1:17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
You can clearly see that the sign of Jonah was that he was in the fish three days and three nights. Not two nights and one day which is what a Friday Crucifixion gives you.
We must now figure out where we are according to the Gregorian calendar we now use in relationship to the After Creation years we have been working with.
Yahweh Himself told Hezekiah, in the very year Sennacherib attacked Jerusalem that this year was a 49th year land rest. It was year 701 BC. And is documented in stone in Babylon and Egypt with references to Assyrian stone inscriptions as well. This is 2 king 19:29
When you lay out all the Jubilee years so that they are 120 in total from this date, in both directions. You then must lay out along side all the known dates of the Gregorian and Julian calendar which only go back in time accurately to this time of in Israel. Most chronologist admit that there is much controversy figuring out what happened, the further back in time we go, before 701 BC.
In the book by Ernest L. Martin, The Star that Astonished the World, he shows you with out a doubt that the Messiah was born in 3 BC. Sept. 11. 1st of Tishri the 1st day of the seventh month. A new sighted moon day. Not a conjunction or invisible moon.
Michael Rood in his 70 Week prophecy shows that the Messiah died in 28 CE. This just so happened to be a Sabbatical year. Or as Yahshua said when He read the scroll of Isaiah 61:2 in Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken hearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” 20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
I have recently read that the temple was destroyed in 68 CE as compared to 70 CE. I must do more research on this before I state this as a definite year.
Lets get back to the Millennial week.
980 + 980 + 980 = 2940 as the end of the third day and the start of the fourth day which will end after another 980 years or in 3920 AC.
701 BC (Before Christ) matches 3136 AC ( After Creation of Adam). When you calculate this all forward to 28 CE (Common Era), it matches up with 3864 AC. 40 years later when the Temple is destroyed is 68 CE or 3804 CE. We have shown you how the Temple is also representative of Yeshua. Both would be destroyed on the fourth day, as told in Daniel.
Just as the Messiah died just before the Sabbath began. So the Temple was destroyed just before the fifth day was to start.
It is on this millennial day that Yeshua is referring to when He tells the thief of the tree, this day you will be with me in paradise. This 4th millennial day.
This all fits in the fourth day as this day does not end until 3920 AC or 84 CE.
Now the Fifth day begins 3920 AC and goes to 4900 AC which is from 84 CE to 1064 CE.
The sixth day is from 4900 AC to 5880 AC which is from 1064 CE to 2044 CE. We are currently at 2007 CE. This sixth day is the preparation day before the 7th millennial day.
The Millennium is to start after the year 5880 AC or 2044 CE. This means that all those end time prophecies are to happen in the next few years leading up to 2044. Think about this.
Again using the Death and resurrection of the Messiah during the Passover season. He Died on the Fourth day and was raised from the grave just before the Sabbath ended on the seventh day. Three days and three nights. Read the article The Sign of Jonah
I had supposed the Messiah was to return at the beginning of the Millennium. Clearly all the evidences proves He will return at the end of the seventh millennial day, just the same as He rose from the grave at the end of the weekly seventh day.
The earth will have a thousand years of rest from Satan who will be locked away. He is also to be let lose for a short time at the end of that thousand. After this 7th millennial day is the Eighth day which is what the Eighth day of the Feast of Tabernacles represents.
This is The Great White Throne judgement.
At this Great Judgement, they will be told what it says in Mathew 7: 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, â€˜Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?” 23 And then I will declare to them, â€˜I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” 24″Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
Take note of the verse that says ” but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” And the other two that say – those who do these sayings. And those who do not do these sayings”
This is speaking of those who DO the LAW and obey it. Not to those who dismiss the law as not important.
If this is said of those who think they are doing the work, what will become of those who are not even reading their bibles? Those who have never looked into the word of Yahweh.
Brethren, take it upon yourselves to become active in what ever way the spirit inspires you. Do not sit back and let the weight be carried by others while you do nothing. I often feel guilty for not doing as much as I know I should be. What about you? Are you still stuck to the remote and the TV? Get stirred up. Ask for more of the spirit to be in you. Ask Yahweh to guide you to where you are needed. There is not really that much time left, as we shall see.
Unless you plant some seeds, how can you ever expect a crop?
We are talking about the eighth millennium. This is after the thousand year reign of Yeshua. This is after Satan has been released for a short while as stated in Revelation. It is after the Great White throne judgement, when every human who ever lived will be made alive and be judged.
This eighth day is the time of the Great Redemption that the Jubilee points to. This is when Yeshua redeems all things. The article The Sign The Seal and The Secret at explains this in much more detail than I can here. This is also a very controversial subject.
The Eighth day is the conclusion of putting sin out of your life for the preceding 7 days.
In every case when something is being cleansed in the scriptures it was done for seven days. Then on the eighth day it was clean and presented to the priest. The Temple was built for seven years and then it was dedicated in the eighth year. The Messiah was born and after seven days was circumcised on the eighth day.
The Priest hood was set apart and atoned for seven days in Lev 8 and then on the eighth day they were clean and could serve Yahweh.
It was the same for those who touched a dead body or had leprosy, or had a discharge from the body.
In Ezekiel 43:25 we read that the altar was atoned for by having a goat and a young bull and a ram offered as a sin offering for each of the seven days. After the seven days was over on the eighth day, the priest could then offer the peace offering.
Notice that each of the sin offerings represents Yeshua. He is the one making atonement for man for these past seven thousand years. On the eighth day a peace offering is made. It is on this eighth day that we are at peace with Yahweh.
Read Revelation 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
It is at this time that Yahweh will dwell with man. Yahweh Himself.
This is what the Holy Day which comes after the seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles represents. It is not the last Great day as some call it. That is the seventh day of the Feast. The Eighth day is a separate and distinct Holy Day. It represents the time Yahweh Himself dwells with men.
The only other Holy Day festival with seven days of preparation followed by the eighth day is the Jubilee cycle which is represented in the count to Pentecost. You have seven Sabbaths, followed by the eighth Sabbath or the Jubilee.
All the Holy Days point to this one event found in the celebration of the Eighth Day at the end of the Feast of Tabernacles. All the Holy Days speak of those things that Yeshua will do at the appointed times. Just as He did during Passover. On the exact day, at the exact hour.
In Revelation 22:5 it says that There shall be no more night for the Lord God gives them light . And they shall reign for ever. The eighth day goes on for ever. No more night. This is because the brightness of the Fathers light will always be here on earth.
Now consider this.
There are many things done in groups of seven as a preparation for atonement to make it complete. Seven days of cleansing, seven days of a preparations and then on the eighth day the sanctification is complete.
Seven days are for cleansing and sanctification then on the eighth day atonement! We tend to look forward to the 7th day ( The seventh Millennium) when Yeshua will return and the troubles of this life are over. The plan of Yahweh doesn’t focus on the return of Yeshua. His return is incredibly important, but Yahweh our Father is putting his throne here on earth. This is of supreme importance. The whole process will then be complete. Seven days to cleanse and prepare the Earth, but the eighth day is the completion, and of extreme significance to Yeweh’s plan.
Seven days to put sin out or seven thousand years to put sin out and then Yahweh will come and dwell with men on earth.
Satan however, has counterfeited this plan. He has mixed the truth of Yeweh’€™s plan with falsehood and he offers himself as a counterfeit to Yahweh.
We read in1 King 12:32 Jeroboam ordained a feast on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, like the feast that was in Judah,
It is interesting that Jeroboam choose the eighth month and not the sixth or ninth month.
I hope some of you who are new are ready for this. Revelation 17:10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
Satan is trying to impersonate Yahweh and Yeshua – the 7th and the 8th. Satan is coming as the beast in Rev 17, pretending to come as the eighth resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire. Eighth being reckoned as Righteousness (Yahweh). Satan is not just competing against
Messiah, but is trying to replace Yahweh as well. To sit on His throne!
Satan has sought to replace Yahweh since the beginning, as we read in Isaiah 14: 12 – “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! 13 For you have said in your heart: “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.”
Simon Magus the sorcerer a high priest of Babylon established a following for himself. A counterfeit to the sect of the Nazarene and it was called Christianity. He honoured the number 8. In the Epistle of Barnubus, it was argued for the eighth day to be honoured as the Sabbath, and not the seventh day. His purpose was to counterfeit the scriptural Sabbath. A counterfeit messiah (Satan disguised as Jesus) and counterfeit brethren (calling themselves Christian) and counterfeit churches all put in place by Satan. Not to the honour of Yahweh but to the honour of Satan.
In Daniel 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.
Times and law are both tied up in the fourth commandment. Keep Holy my Sabbath. This is the law. When man attempts to change the time of the Sabbath from what Yahweh has established as the Sabbath, then man is changing the time.
How is Satan doing this? He has changed the seventh day Sabbath into the eighth day, has he not? Where in all the Bible is the scripture which says we should worship on the eighth day of the week, which is also the first day of the week? You cannot find such a verse, because it is not there. So why do so many “Christians” worship on the first day of the week.? Sunday. This is the counterfeit worship spoken of in Daniel as you just read.
Now getting back to the Eighth Day of the Feast of Tabernacles. We celebrate the seven days of the Feast prior to this day as a celebration of the Millennial Rule when Yahshua will rule the Earth for 1000 (980) years and Satan is bound up for that time. We get this from 2 Peter 3: 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
When we apply this to the weekly Sabbath Rest we get six days of work or six thousand years of work and then the Sabbath year of Rest or the one thousand years when Yahshua is ruling over the Earth.
This is all wrapped up in the Feast of Tabernacles. The seven days of the Feast and the seven thousand years of Yahweh’s plan. But then comes the Eighth Day. How does this fit into Yahweh’s plan?
In Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
The seven thousand years end but the rule of his government will have no end. We all think in terms of when Yahshua will return – the seventh day, but the bible points to the eighth day when Yahweh returns and of that day there is no end.
Revelation 21:1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, â€œBehold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.â€ 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, â€œBehold, I make all things new.â€ And He said to me, â€œWrite, for these words are true and faithful.â€ 6 And He said to me, â€œIt is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
In Hosea 6: 1 Come, and let us return to the Lord; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. 2 After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. 3 Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
What is Hosea saying to us. After two days He will revive us. On the third day He will raise us up.
Remember that Yeshua died on the Fourth day just before Sunset. He also died in the fourth Millennium just before the Fifth stared.
I have found no one else who is saying what is to follow. So this is my own take. Take it for what it is worth.
Yeshua died at the end of the Fourth Millennium. He was raised up and took the first of the first fruits with Him to present as a wave offering before Yahweh, representing the rest of the harvest to come.
When Hosea says “after two days” he is referring to the second wave offering of Pentecost being offered. This is when we who are in Yeshua and keeping His laws and doing His will, will be changed to spirit beings or raised from the grave. Just before the Thousand year rest. Take note of the scriptures that said this one shall not enter my rest. It is saying this one will not be revived to live during the seventh millennium.
So two days is represented by 980 + 980 = 1960 Years. 1960 years + 84 Years which was the end of the fourth day, 1960 +84 = 2044.
Now the Fifth day begins 3920 AC and goes to 4900 AC which is from 84 CE to 1064 CE. The sixth day is from 4900 AC to 5880 AC which is from 1064 CE to 2044 CE. We are currently at 2007 CE.
This exact same thing happened when Messiah was crucified. Remember in Matt 27: 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
The Wave sheaf was marked out before the Weekly Sabbath on the sixth day. After the Weekly Sabbath was over it was cut and brought into the temple to be prepared.
The Marking of the sheaf represents the Bodies being raised on the second day. Messiah was killed Wed. Thursday was the first Day of Unleavened Bread and a High Holy Day. Friday was the weekly preparation day. The second day after the crucifixion. The same day the wave sheaf was marked. After the third day, at the end of the weekly Sabbath, the Messiah was raised up, so were the saints on the third day . On the first day of the week the wave sheaf was waved before Yahweh. This is also the Eighth day.
Now as a millennial day we can see that at the end of the sixth millennium, the saints will be raised up to rule with Messiah. They represent the wave offering of both the Barley and the Wheat. Which are representative of the whole of man kind.
When the Messiah comes back down to the earth at the end of the seventh Millennium, then all of mankind who ever lived are raised up in the Great White Throne Judgement. Ezekiel’s valley of dry bones. Once they have been redeemed then comes the eighth Millennium, and this is when Yahweh will dwell on earth with men.
The Holy days are represented by three Harvest seasons. The Barley Harvest at Passover time is the first. This is when the waves Sheaf offering took place. The second Holy Day in which you are commanded to go up to Jerusalem was Pentecost. This is when the second wave sheaf offering is made and is yet to come. The third Holy Day season is Tabernacles when the rest of the Harvest is then taken up. Take note of the fact that The Feast of Trumpets and Atonement are not part of these three harvest seasons.
Brethren you may have a different view on some of this. This is how I see things right now. In q thousand years as we near the end of the 7th millennium, then we who are alive will know who’s version of scriptures was right. It not worth arguing and getting upset over as so many did about the Sign ,The Seal, and the Secret. Time will show us all.
