Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,
In The Mail
Your teaching of last week was excellent. Great slides. Your message was absolutely clear. And you avoided a deep argument of the problems raised by other theories – you showed the errors of others quite clearly.
It was a timely topic for me. The previous week I had decided to read The Coming Prince by Sir Robert Anderson to find out why Gavin Findley was so much of a disciple. Claiming Anderson found the Rosetta Stone for biblical prophecy. Anderson’s theory is a bit different than the others, by the way, he constructs his fable, but is not worth raising in your teaching.
l mainly got into less than a third of his book to fully see his mistakes. And how his “cunningly contrived fable” was constructed. I don’t think I can finish the book, despite it being easy reading. It is all based on flawed beginnings. (Gavin Findley must be easy to persuade. I had a look at some of his videos. The Feast days seem to be just a passing interest, used to support his end-time theories – I hope I am wrong – he may have just not needed to emphasize them at those talks.)
Sir Robert made a few interpretations of scripture on other topics that I won’t cover, but the main “building block” is/was the 360-day year. While he was very well written, perfect prose and logic (if you accept the fallacy), he based this on belief in what I think was accepted in his “religious circle”.
1. He called the 360-day year the “ancient calendar”
2. He stated the year of Noah’s flood was of 360 days
3. and that Abraham kept a 360-day year
4. He claimed that the Babylonian Calendar was a 360-day year.
5. and that Sir Isaac Newton believed in the 360-day year.
6. etc. etc.
Of course, none of these is validated. Except if one is happy to accept other faith-based sources without any thought process. But later on, I wondered if his acceptance of this myth was a) true ignorance, or b) intentional, it conveniently suited the theory.
Why? While talking about years he totally ignores the fact that Hebrew years have intercalary months. It’s hard to believe that he was not aware of this fact.
So in his 70 weeks prophecy, he claims things like 483 (solar) years = 490 lunar years. This is a huge deception – self-delusion? – but he sells it to his follower.
Here are some examples:
“Now from the tenth day of Tebeth B.C. 589,  to the twenty-fourth day of Chisleu B.C. 520,  was a period of 25, 202 days; and seventy years of 360 days contain exactly 25, 200 days. We may conclude, therefore, that the era of the “desolations” was a period of seventy years of 360 days, beginning the day after the Babylonian army invested Jerusalem, and ending the day before the foundation of the second temple was laid .”
“From the year succeeding the dedication of Solomon’s temple, to the year before the foundation of the second temple was laid, was a period of 490 years of 360 days.”
No, I did not check up the actual real days expired. That would just be a waste of my time (pun intended).
And this leads to one of his early conclusions – Gavin Findley’s Rosetta Stone.
“Now this seventieth week is admittedly a period of seven years, and half of this period is three times described as “a time, times, and half a time,” or “the dividing of a time;” (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:14) twice as forty-two months; (Revelation 11:2; 13:5) and twice as 1, 260 days. (Revelation 11:3; 12:6) But 1, 260 days are exactly equal to forty-two months of thirty days, or three and a half years of 360 days, whereas three and a half Julian years contain 1, 278 days. It follows therefore that the prophetic year is not the Julian year, but the ancient year of 360 days. “”
He has made the same mistake the COGs, and others do. That this “half a week” in prophecy, describe with 3 different measures of time, is talking about the exact same event, occurring over the same duration.
I had proved this was not true to myself before I learnt of your teaching was has the events separated.
Why? Like your teaching of different Nidah cycles for Israel and for the beast, the 42 months, 1260 days and ‘times times and half a time’
refer to different subjects. Once that is accepted then the prophecies can be disentangled somewhat. I consider that the 42 months is about the beast power. The 1260 days about the power/direction of God (two witnesses, the church in the wilderness – yes a COG theory). The ‘times, times, and half a time’ about the saints (Israel/the elect).
As such one does not need to use a pacifier and wrap these up as 42 month = 1260 days = ‘times, times and half a time’ based on a mythical 360-day year.
Why are these events listed in three different ways? Maybe they are the same duration, or maybe not !.
Scripture does not seem to provide any references to the solar year, nor to the Julian/Gregorian calendar. Why do the COG and other Christian groups that attempt to interpret prophecy (and create what they call “God’s Sacred Calendar”) so obsessed with eliminating the real calendar driven by the moon cycles – one of the few “witnesses” that matter.
I have to chuckle when comparing the cycles created by Our Father with the modern world. People today are so ignorant that life-based on agricultural societies, that lasted for thousands of years could manage and could discern the months and the seasons without a modern computer.
We live with a 24-hour clock (almost a necessity, and very useful). It is such that every day is exactly 24 hours, and the average day is thus exactly 24 hours. But with a sunset to sunset day virtual, no day is ever 24 hours – except maybe 4 times a year a single longitudes such that
the sunset one day is followed by a sunset the next date at exactly the same time. At other times no two days in the year have the same time between sunsets. For half the year the day is longer than 24 hours, and less than 24 hours the rest.
So “O’clock” average day is 24 hours (over a year) every day is 24 hours exactly. But So “sunset/sunset” average day over a year is 24 hours, but NO day individual day is 24 hours.
We can do the same with months. Those following the Hebrew Calculated Calendar have stated that the molad duration is exactly 29.530588 days. –
ignoring the fact that this is given as the “average duration”. I have done charts (from data from timanddate.com which show that over a 20 year duration that only twice (2 times) is the stated 29.5305888 days achieved (within 30 secs error) and only seven more times that it is within 30 minutes. At all other times is various cyclically.
So – calculated calendar – lunation is based on 29.5305888 days. But lunar months – average may be 29.530588 days but very few instances (2 out of about 235 times over 20 years) in reality.
The other fallacy that is used to support the calculated calendar is the 19-year time cycles. Yes after 19 years the calendars do align extremely well. The claim is
that the ‘heavens’ are back in alignment. BUT when you see the charts, it is obvious that the lunations cycle through 8 cycles in 9 years, 16 in 18 years and then are into their next cycle for the 19th year. So while the calendars may align, the moon keeps rolling on. When I looked at the NASA web page on eclipses, it mentions a “Saros Cycle” for a repetition of the eclipses. It being 18 years and 11 days and 8 hours. I think this is what I was seeing if I interpret the curve I created as being like a sine wave, the positive part being the first 8 lunation cycle (9 years) and the negative part being a second 8 lunation cycles (9 years).
Sorry I got carried away.
I was an Engineer so the left side of my mind dominates and I had a tendency, in the past to accept the 360-day yeat, the 3.5 years interpretation and many other things that could be nailed down solid. But now I have been slapped around a bit to realize that if one also uses the right side of the brain that artistry and other creative things can be seen. Yet, when I analyze these artistic things I do so with an Engineers
methodology, Ah well. I try.
Why do I think knowing about the calendar argument is somewhat needed, for me at least? There are hundreds of thousands of ex COG and similar groups that have a beginning of the knowledge of the holy days. This might be what I have to give, one day, to help someone change, and recognize the difference between the culture. It was what made me see everything anew.
Shalom Yoseph,Thank you for your letter, much appreciated. And I apologize it has taken me this much time to respond. Life in the “birth pangs” is quite busy.I get what you are saying, and certainly want to “get the memo” when it’s time to flee…and yet I believe that we have the power to shift how things go down. Not in the complete plan, as YHVH will see it through in His timing. But in the walking out of our Kingdom assignments, glorifying our King, and bringing so many more into the Kingdom before it’s too late.Again, you nailed the timeline, so I am paying attention, and telling others about it. Let’s do an interview soon if you still wish, though we will most likely not agree on everything. I need to make sure that I “endorse you” properly, not in order to protect myself or anything like that (I did have that attitude in the past, but I don’t give a cr*p anymore), but so many people can get it. After Shavuot we move into harvest time, and it’s when the stranger “gleans”. Your works are extensive, and most cannot take the time to review them, and don’t even have the capacity to understand. These gentile Christian “widows and orphans” are starving (for truth) and want to come glean. How do we make it easy for them to approach the corners of our well-worked fields and take just what they need in order to survive, and then join with Israel?I am reconnecting with basically everyone from the past, and they are all getting the same downloads, just from different angles. The Ruach is speaking. Just yesterday an old friend told me that he is working to get elders together to discuss what a righteous people looks like, and we’re going to combine forces.In order to inspire boldness, and proclaim what YHVH showed me back in November about our region, I made a statement at our County Commissioners meeting this week. Mostly, I did it so others will break through the fear and stand up too. It’s got over 5K FB views in under 3 days, so somewhat going viral. Please check it out, and if you believe in the message, please share it: https://www.facebook.com/ChaimGoldman/videos/10158980748100955Thank you for your friendship, and your loyal service to our great King.Shabbat shalom!
For such a time as this,Chaim
The Great Depression of 2020
This week, I was sent a chart by a brother advising me about the markets that are about to tank. This brother is a technical stock advisor in Europe and a believer. His words ” the bearmarket has begun!”
I am not a Stock advisor nor am I giving you advice about whether to short or go long in the markets. I am just showing you this chart at of May 21 when it was sent to me.
Unemployment is surging at a record pace … but the stock market is outperforming.
Around 39 million Americans have filed for unemployment. But stimulus paychecks and jobless benefits have made up for some lost incomes. And more stimulus checks may land in mailboxes soon.
As a result, consumer sentiment is still better than the worst of the 2008 financial crisis.
But the depression is still young. We still haven’t felt its toll. Sentiment will deteriorate. The optimism of reopening the economy will wear off. The reality of the economic slowdown will set in.
The very same day I received the charts above, I was sent the following advertisement for a News Letter. Jim Rickards is telling us from news reports from respected sources that the Pandemic is going to last 18 months and that we will have a second wave. Not if but when it comes and that it will be followed by a third wave. We wrote about this a few weeks ago when we explained the Spanish Flu Pandemic to you.
Mr. Rickards can be googled on youtube and you can listen to his advice from many interviews. He goes on to say that we are already in a Recession. The following article is from May 9, 2020.
In two, terrible, months the coronavirus pandemic has driven unemployment in the US to levels unseen since the 1930s Great Depression. Did it have to be this way?
Covid-19 has cost more than 33 million Americans their jobs in the last seven weeks – 10% of the entire US population.
Then on May 21, 2020, we have the following new article with the total US unemployed reading 39 Million.
The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits in the two months since the coronavirus took hold in the U.S. has swelled to nearly 39 million, the government reported Thursday, even as states from coast to coast gradually reopen their economies and let people go back to work.
More than 2.4 million people filed for unemployment last week in the latest wave of layoffs from the business shutdowns that have brought the economy to its knees, the Labor Department said.
That brings the running total to a staggering 38.6 million, a job-market collapse unprecedented in its speed.
Like watching a slow-moving tsunami as it hit Japan a few years ago, You can’t believe what your seeing and yet you watch as the waters slowly rise and the houses get swept away. You see the odd car driving towards it and then turn around and race to escape. You can’t take your eyes away as you watch each building get crushed under the weight of the ensuing water and debris. So is this economic catastrophe that is now sweeping the USA and the World.
Jim Rickards says the first domino that is going to fall is Depression Levels of Unemployment. And from the recent news, it would seem he is correct in what he has been warning us is coming.
The next domino is then going to be massive bankruptcies. With 39 Million in the USA not employed, and many have deferred their rent and mortgages for three months when those three months come to a close and these millions still do not have a job, they will now be faced with bankruptcy. Watch out for August.
Once this second event begins to take hold then you will see bank failures. All these banks will be holding these huge debts and no one is going to be paying for those debts. This could come quickly on the heels of the 2nd domino.
Once the money in the banks is locked up and no one can get their money and more than 10% of the Population not working and massive bank failures then you will see a collapse of society.
I encourage you all to watch the videos in the links I have attached above.
The Day of Reckoning
Here we are the day before the infamous countdown clock I put on the home page that counted down the time left to the start of the 2300 Days which would then lead up to the time when the Two Witnesses would begin to do their work which would conclude at Passover in 2030 and be followed by 3 1/2 year of the Great Tribulation. With Passover being a month early this year, I was, like many of you, caught off guard. But we followed the cloud and kept Passover on March 10/11, 2020. The very same day WHO declared a worldwide Pandemic in the very year we have been warning about for the past 15 years, 2020.
Then the week before Shavuot on May 3rd, 2020, the UN announced that a famine of Biblical Proportions was in the making and going to be here in 3 months’ (July-August 2020) time affecting 135 Million people in 10 countries unless the world economic picture was not rectified immediately. This too was caused by the COVID 19 Pandemic which has forced the entire world to shut down to stop the contagion from spreading further. The week after Shavuot we began to hear about Meat Processing plants shutting down and even with a surplus of animals to slaughter there was a shortage of meat on the shelves. Again due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
Lest I forget, there is also a plague of Locust of Biblical proportions stretching out from East Africa across Saudia Arabia, and into Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and reaching into China. A swarm of 40 million locusts can eat as much food as 35,000 people — or six elephants — according to UN.
And now as we approach this date that we have been warning you about, the world economies are on the verge of collapse breaking the pride of your power.
Lev 26:18 And if you will not yet listen to Me for all this, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
Lev 26:19 And I will break the pride of your power, and I will make your heaven like iron and your earth like bronze.
Lev 26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vain. For your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the field yield their fruits.
Lev 26:23 And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will still walk contrary to Me,
Lev 26:24 then I will walk contrary to you and will punish you seven times more for your sins.
Lev 26:25 And I will bring a sword on you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant. And when you are gathered inside your cities, I will send the plague among you. And you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
Lev 26:26 When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight. And you shall eat and not be satisfied.
Lev 26:27 And if you will not for all of this listen to Me, but will walk contrary to Me,
Lev 26:28 then I will walk contrary to you also in fury. And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
Lev 26:29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat.
We had focused on the sword aspect of this fourth curse and not so much on the famine or plague aspects of it. In 2005 I shot an arrow in the air, base upon the scriptures, and 15 years later it has hit the target and landed at the edge of the bullseye. So close to being spot on that it is stunning. COVID 19 has locked the entire world at home for the past three months and the lockdown may go on for another one or two months before it is relaxed around the world and then further lockdowns will start again this fall all over again. This is going to destroy economies as nations go bankrupt as well as individuals.
With the change of Shavuot by one month this year I was forced to relook at our 2300 Day Count. We explained that in our video The 2300 Countdown, 1260, 1335 and 1290.
In this video, we walk you through the process of learning how to do this counting process. How the 29 day months become 30 and this then adds 20 extra days to each 3 /12 period of time for a total of 40 extra days over 7 years. We explained how these extra days and the count itself showed you where a leap year was and when that Adar Bet would be added. After doing all of this step by step so you could learn, we then counted back the 2300 days from the time the two witnesses should be starting to arrive in the fall of 2026. Counting back from that time brings us to July 5, 2020 as the start date. But because I could not ascertain if an Adar Bet was to be included or not I was not 100% sure. I could not also determine when the 30 day months would begin.
With this in mind lets get off the ranch as it were and do some exploring to see if we can find anything new.
I am about to share something with you that is really off the wall. The amount of work that I have now put into it is baffling me. How did I get so much done and still I am not sure what I have accomplished?
A few weeks ago someone wrote a comment on my newsletter which led me to the site of Cyrus Harding. I would like you to go there now and read what he has said in this article which got me so intrigued.
In his article, he states the following. He wrote this February 24, 2020. He had no idea of what I had recently shared with all of you on May 3, 2020, about the 2300 Days and when they are to begin. I have recently shown you that I believe they begin July 5, 2020, or thereabouts.
Cyrus stated the following;
When = April 23, 2020 to August 18, 2020. Like I said this is a long cycle.
- Phase I = April 23 – May 1. How much (intensity) = 30%.
- Phase II = May 2 – May 22. How much = 40%.
- Phase III = May 23 – June 13. How much = 50%.
- Phase IV = June 14 – July 4. How much = 75%.
- Phase V = July 5 – July 25. How much = 50%.
- Phase VI = July 26 – August 18. How much = 30%.
He preceded this statement with this paragraph.
Why Are You Reading This?
Because you want to see if something is coming and when, right? The next cycle coming is a complex cycle and is not global in the sense of the word that the one that ended on February 24th was global. It will affect every continent on the Earth but not the same way at the same time. It is composed of two (2) separate but overlapping stages and it is the time when the stages overlap that I see the greatest period of uncertainty. Having said that, the cycle coming is not as strong as the one we just left but it’s effects will linger longer. For comparison, just think of the effect like noise, loud annoying noises get on your nerves quickly while noises that are not as loud, like the water dripping in the kitchen sink in the night, will cause you to do things only after you can’t tolerate it any longer. This coming cycle looks to have that type of effect, long and irritating.
And all of this was preceded by the curses that we have outlined in all of our work since 2005. What was he warning us about? I did not understand. I read his article again and again and then I wrote to him and asked if we could talk.
His information was overlapping what I was saying. How did he arrive at about the same time? This is what I needed to know. I forget how long we talked over zoom whether it was an hour or more I forget as I had so much to absorb.
Cyrus’s credentials are that he is a former CIA analysis figuring out patterns. He had also in previous years warned of something coming out of China in November and something else on Feb 24, 2020. He had picked the time the Virus began and the day the Stock Market began to collapse, but Cyrus thought it was going to be about oil. He had my attention. We did not dwell on this too much as I was more focussed on what he was looking at to determine his warnings. Although he looks at a number of things, the one thing that stuck with me was the Moons at Perigee and Apogee in relation to the earth. Perigee is how close the moon is to the earth and Apogee is how far the moon is from the earth.
Every time my wife goes to work on a full moon I hear her tell me all the nut cases will be out tonight and she dreads going to work. Cyrus told me the same thing. When you combine the electromagnetic field (not sure if I understood this correctly) from the moon or a full moon with its Perigee and again with its Apogee, you get what he called the “crazy effect”.
I thanked Cyrus for all he could tell me as his notes were in Texas and he was not there at this time. For some reason, I did not leave that phone call thinking I had just talked to a nut job. He was serious and he is a believer. This sent me on some deep research as I searched out the Perigee of the moon and then the full moons, crescent moons, and Conjunctions. That led me to the conjunctions of the planets and then this all led me to lay it all out in excel.
This past week we did a video interview with Cyrus. I had let him read this News Letter and then we talked about these things in detail. I encourage you to watch that video now and or after you read the rest of this letter. The video has more information that I have not put in here.
We have this statement from Zechariah the Father of John the Baptist after he began to speak again.
Luk 1:67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying,
Luk 1:68 Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people
Luk 1:69 and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David,
Luk 1:70 as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from eternity;
Where are all the prophets from eternity who spoke of these things?
Act 3:20 And He shall send Jesus Christ, who before was proclaimed to you,
Act 3:21 whom Heaven truly needs to receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets since the world began.
Again who are these prophets that Peter is talking about who said these things from the beginning?
Paul also wrote about this knowledge that is known by all.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
Rom 1:19 because the thing which may be known of God is clearly revealed within them, for God revealed it to them.
Rom 1:20 For the unseen things of Him from the creation of the world areclearly seen, being realized by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, for them to be without excuse.
Again where are these things that are revealed from heaven? Where has Yehovah revealed them?
Paul again says;
Rom 10:17 Then faith is of hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes indeed, their voice went out into all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
And again I ask you when did this happen? When were the words of Yehovah sent to the ends of the world?
The answer some of you already know where I am going. We just read this psalm on day 26 of counting the Omer.
Psa 19:1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork.
Psa 19:2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
Psa 19:3 There is no speech nor are there words; their voice is not heard.
Psa 19:4 Their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
Psa 19:5 and he comes forth as a bridegroom from his canopy; he rejoices as a strong man to run a race,
Psa 19:6 going forth from the end of the heavens, and its course is to their ends. And there is nothing hid from its heat.
The heavens declare the glory of Yehovah. And the last half of this psalm tells us of His covenant.
Psa 19:7 The Law of Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise.
Psa 19:8 The Precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the Commandments of Jehovah are pure, giving light to the eyes.
Psa 19:9 The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of Jehovah are true and righteous altogether,
Psa 19:10 more to be desired than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Psa 19:11 And Your servant is warned by them; in keeping them there is great reward.
Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? Oh make me pure from secret faults;
Psa 19:13 and keep Your servant back from presumptuous sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
The oldest book in the bible talks about the constellations. The book of Job is said to have been written about 2000 BC.
Job 9:6 He who shakes the earth out of its place, and the pillars of it tremble;
Job 9:7 the One speaking to the sun, and it does not rise; and seals up the stars;
Job 9:8 who alone stretches out the heavens, and walks on the waves of the sea;
Job 9:9 who made the Bear, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south;
Job 9:10 who is doing great things past finding out; yea, marvelous things without number?
What we call the Big Dipper, Job calls the Bear and is in Hebrew called;
עשׁ / עישׁ
‛ayish / ‛âsh
1) a constellation
1a) Great Bear, Ursa Major
Orion is what we call that constellation today. In Hebrew it is;
1) constellation, Orion
1a) Orion, the constellation
1b) constellation (general)
And the Pleiades still goes by that same name today but in Hebrew it is;
1) Pleiades, a constellation of seven stars
This cluster of stars is found in the shoulder of the constellation Taurus the Bull.
We also read about Yehovah who names these same constellations
Job 38:1 And Jehovah answered Job out of the tempest, and said,
Job 38:31 Can you bind the bands of the Pleiades, or loosen the cords of Orion?
Job 38:32 Can you bring the constellations in their season? Or can you guide the Bear with its sons?
Job 38:33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set up their rulership on the earth?
Job again speaks of the constellation Draco when he says the fleeing serpent in;
Job 26:13 By His Spirit the heavens were beautiful; His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.
It was Yehovah who created these images in the heavens. He named them according to Isaiah.
Isa 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold, who has created these, who brings out their host by number? He calls them all by names by the greatness of His might, for He is strong in power; not one is lacking.
Psa 147:4 He appoints the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.
Amo 5:8 seek Him who created the Pleiades and Orion, and who turned the deep darkness into the morning and He darkened the day into night. Seek Him who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the face of the earth; Jehovah is His name;
We are told that Adam, Seth and Enoch are the ones who wrote down the names of the stars and the constellations. And we are told that right from the beginning, they were to be used for our understanding. Our understanding of Yehovah.
Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.
Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth. And it was so.
Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night, and the stars also.
The Tower of Babel is mentioned in
Gen 11:4 And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower, and its top in the heavens. And let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered upon the face of the whole earth.
The Birs Nimroud excavation site in Iraq is an example of the Tower of Babel that Nimrod built.
Borsippa was an important ancient city of Sumer, the principal feature today being a ruined ziggurat that rises high above the surrounding plain and is easily visible from satellite photographs. The site name today, Birs Nimrud, probably seeks to identify the site with the more famous ziggurat ruin at Nimrud.
Dependent upon Babylon, never the seat of autonomous power, Borsippa was repeatedly mentioned, usually in connection with Babylon, in texts from the Ur III period through the Seleucid period and even in early Islamic texts.
Rebuilt under Nebuchadnezzar, the Borsippa ziggurat was laid out in seven terraces and reached a height of more than 230 feet in ancient times; even as a ruin today, it stands more than 172 feet above the flat plain, easily visible in satellite photos.
Each of the seven terraces was to represent one of the 7 planets and the top of it was to show the Denderah, also called the Mazzaroth. This is exactly what Genesis 11 is speaking about that they were building when Yehovah came down.
These ziggurats were built in all the great cities and it was from here that the men of Babylon watched all the events in the heavens and recorded them. I strongly suspect the Pyramids are connected to this understanding as well, but that is another study.
So we know the ancients were watching the stars and reading them for a very specific reason. They knew they were from Yehovah telling them of what was coming.
Even Eve looked to the stars and thought she understood the message she was reading in them.
Gen 3:14 And Jehovah God said to the serpent, Because you have done this you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every animal of the field. You shall go upon your belly, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.
Gen 3:16 To the woman He said, I will greatly increase your sorrow and your conception. In pain you shall bear sons, and your desire shall be toward your husband, and he shall rule over you.
We have these two constellations that she would have known about.
Ophiuchus – Depicted with his heel being attacked by Scorpio, while he is bruising the head of The Serpent (Genesis 3:15).
Aquila – “the falling eagle”. The brightest star Al Okal – “wounded in the heel”. (Gen. 3:15)
Orion – “coming forth as light”. The brightest star is Betelgeuse – ” the coming of the branch”. In Orion’s foot is the star Rigel – “the foot that crushes”. In the shoulder is the star Bellatrix – “quickly coming”. In the leg is the star Saiph – “bruised”
What a remarkable prophecy from Yehovah. Yehovah showed Adam and Eve in the stars that a descendant of Eve will destroy the serpent. But He also says that, when this descendant crushes the serpent, he will die, vividly described as being bitten by a venomous viper.
So there is Eve, pregnant with her first child. She knew this child would have to be unique if he were to undo what she and Adam had done to the world. By committing the world’s first sin, they had started a chain of events that no regular person could ever contain. All their descendants would inherit this sinful condition and die because of it. It was impossible for any regular person to do anything without the infection of sin ruining his actions in one way or another.
Eve knew this. Although she had only lived this life of sin for a short time, she already knew heartache and pain. She longed for the time before she had disobeyed Yehovah. She remembered the perfect peace and joy that had filled each day. She remembered a life without anguish and remorse.
And now, Eve was experiencing morning sickness, swollen ankles, and a painful back. The final hours of her pregnancy reminded her so vividly of Yehovah’s earlier words to her. They rang in her ears as she gave birth to Cain: “I will intensify your pains of childbirth; in pain you will bear children.”
But now, with the birth of Cain, Eve is experiencing something new. She is experiencing the first blush of motherhood. And such joy as she breastfeeds Cain and he coos with delight in being fed.
In Eve’s joy, she remembers Yehovah’s promise. One of her descendants will crush the serpent’s head. One of her descendants will free the human race from sin and death. And so in this moment of sheer joy, Eve cries out the faith that is within her: “I have gotten a man–the Lord!” She believes the newborn baby moving in her lap is the Messiah Yehovah Himself had prophesied. Oh, how she wants that to be!
Gen 4:1 And the man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from Jehovah.
So from this, we can see that right from the start the constellations were telling those looking at them what was to come. And many have misread them throughout the ages. Could I be misunderstanding what I am seeing in this report I am now presenting to you? Yes, but judge it for yourselves and then decide.
We then have the prophet Isaiah describing the coming of Yehovah with us.
Isa 7:14 So, the Lord Himself shall give you a sign. Behold, the virgin will conceive and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel.
Then we have the Apostle John writing on the Isle of Patmos around 90 AD, 90 years after the birth of Yehshua the following.
Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great sign in the heavens, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head,
Rev 12:2 and having a babe in womb, she cries, being in travail, having been distressed to bear.
You can actually see how the sun is clothing the women and you can clearly see how the moon is below her feet. This moon, once the sun has set, is the very first crescent of the moon as seen from Jerusalem. And this is the first day of the seventh month. It is the Feast of Trumpets, the day and hour no man can know. In our pictures, the date says 2 BC. This is because they use the Julian count which includes “0” as a year. So this event took place Sept 11, 3 BC, The Feast of Trumpets, the Feast of Shouting, the day and No Man can know. The Day Yehshua was born.
Now read the rest of this prophecy from John.
Rev 12:3 And another sign was seen in the heavens. And behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads!
Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them onto the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman being about to bear, so that when she bears he might devour her child.
Rev 12:5 And she bore a son, a male, who is going to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and to His throne.
Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, so that they might nourish her there a thousand, two hundred and sixty days.
Here is what John was looking at and interpreting for us. The dragon was the serpent below the constellation of Virgo and in the sky, below this constellation of the serpent are one-third of all the stars just as John is describing.
Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded. And I saw a star fall from the heaven to the earth, and it was given the key of the abyss.
Take note that in the next verse it is Yehshua who is saying this.
Luk 10:18 And He said to them, I saw Satan fall from Heaven like lightning.
Rev 12:7 And there was war in Heaven. Michael and his angels warring against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels warred,
Rev 12:8 but did not prevail. Nor was place found for them in Heaven any more.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent called Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
This is the constellation of Draco as it falls to the earth. The little bear is the little dipper. There are many more scriptures I could pull up. But my point is this. The heavens declare the glory of Yehovah. We should be looking there to see what they are telling us. Although the stars may have different names around the world, it makes no difference the language; all the stars have the same meaning in every tongue and the same constellations.
Now you know and can understand where the prophets of old spoke of those things found in the heavens from the very foundation of the world.
Looking to the Heavens
Let us now go back and look at what Cyrus Harding was telling us. He said the following.
When = April 23, 2020 to August 18, 2020. Like I said this is a long cycle.
- Phase I = April 23 – May 1. How much (intensity) = 30%.
- Phase II = May 2 – May 22. How much = 40%.
- Phase III = May 23 – June 13. How much = 50%.
- Phase IV = June 14 – July 4. How much = 75%.
- Phase V = July 5 – July 25. How much = 50%.
- Phase VI = July 26 – August 18. How much = 30%.
I am going to break each section down so you can see it clearly.
Phase I = April 23 – May 1. How much (intensity) = 30%.
Phase II = May 2 – May 22. How much = 40%.
For the time period, Cyrus is looking at, I have found the following list of events in the heavens taking place. Cyrus is looking at the crescent moon to begin the month while the list below has the Conjunction moon as the new moon day.
April 22 16:26 NEW MOON
April 25 17:34 Aldebaran 3.8°S of Moon
April 26 00 Uranus in Conjunction with Sun
April 27 07:54 Moon at Ascending Node
April 29 04:19 Pollux 4.7°N of Moon
April 30 03:18 Beehive 1.6°S of Moon
April 30 10:38 FIRST QUARTER MOON
May 01 16:49 Regulus 4.2°S of Moon
May 04 09 Eta-Aquarid Meteor Shower
May 04 11 Mercury at Superior Conjunction
May 05 17:03 Moon at Perigee: 359656 km
May 07 00:45 FULL MOON
May 08 11:40 Antares 6.5°S of Moon
May 09 18 Mercury at Perihelion
May 09 23:01 Moon at Descending Node
May 11 23:40 Jupiter 2.3°N of Moon
May 12 08:18 Saturn 2.7°N of Moon
May 14 04:03 LAST QUARTER MOON
May 14 16:00 Mars 2.8°N of Moon
May 17 21:45 Moon at Apogee: 405584 km
May 22 00 Mercury 0.9° of Venus
I also found that the Perigee and Apogee for this time period are as follows. Take note that the Perigee is very close in these two orbits around the earth.
Apr 07 18:08 356909 m Apr 20 19:01 406463
May 06 03:03 359656 May 18 07:45 405584
The Moon revolves around Earth in an elliptical orbit with a mean eccentricity of 0.0549. As a result, the Moon’s distance from Earth (center-to-center) varies with mean values of 363,396 km at perigee (closest) to 405,504 km at apogee (most distant).
The anomalistic month is defined as the time it takes the Moon to make one revolution around its orbit with respect to the perigee. The length of the mean anomalistic month as calculated for the year 2000 is 27.55455 days (27d 13h 18m 33s). However, the actual duration can vary by several days due to the gravitational perturbations of the Sun on the Moon’s eccentric orbit.
Over the 5000-year period from -1999 to 3000 (2000 BCE to 3000 CE), the distance of the Moon’s perigee varies from 356,355 to 370,399 km while the Moon’s apogee varies from 404,042 to 406,725 km. The the shortest anomalistic month is 24.629 days (2.925 days shorter than the mean) while the longest anomalistic month is 28.565 days (1.011 days longer than the mean).
The table presented here gives the date and time (Greenwich Mean Time) of all perigees and apogees of the Moon for the 21st Century (2001-2100). The ‘m’ and ‘M’ after some dates indicate the minimum and maximum values, respectively, each year. For conversion to other time zones, see Time Zones and Universal Time.
When I asked Cyrus what does this mean, he told me it was the closer the moon got, the crazier people became and it has to do with the electromagnetic pull of the moon on the earth and the radiation from the sun and reflected by the moon. We all know how the ocean’s tides fluctuate with the cycles of the moon. You have high and low tides and sometimes you have extra high, high tides. The closer the moon is to the earth the stronger the magnetic pull on the earth and the higher the tides. (As the moon draws the tides higher the weight of water weighs 1 kilogram per litre adding more weight to various parts of the earth. This theory has not been scientifically proven. It is a theory and it is this theory that is believed to cause the earth to quake.)
Now I ask myself what has happened in the world during this time mentioned from April 23, 2020, to May 1, 2020? The world was in Stay at home mode with some people rebelling and beginning to demand their rights to go out. Other than that I could not see anything. But the whole world being shut in their homes during this time is very significant. The Stock Markets were starting to rebound as in a bear market rally.
And as we approach May 22, 2020, the world is now preparing to let people go back to work and to gather in restaurants and bars even though they do not have the COVID 19 virus under control. Death rates in the USA are now going past the 100,000 and still not plateauing or coming down. People still claim this to be a hoax and are not acting according to the guidelines put out by the Ministry of health claiming this to be a ploy by Bill Gates to get everyone vaccinated.
The world’s economy is moving into a Great Depression with most Governments creating trillions of dollars in debts to fight the virus and try and keep their economies afloat by lending to certain sectors to help them through this time. Millions have been laid off and will not be getting their jobs back anytime soon. Banks are holding huge amounts of debts that will not get paid when the second wave comes and the economies of the world again shut down.
Now the “crazy effect” according to Cyrus takes hold as we approach the following dates.
Phase III = May 23 – June 13. How much = 50%.
Now that Cyrus has shared this info with me I began to look to the heavens to see what was going on.
May 22 07:39 NEW MOON
May 23 16:40 Venus 3.7°N of Moon
May 24 00:53 Mercury 2.8°N of Moon
May 24 11:34 Moon at Ascending Node
Here is what the skies looked like on May 23, 2020, when the New Moon might be seen.
The Pleiades are the seven stars in the shoulder of Taurus and are equated to the 7 Churches of Revelation 1 and 2. They are also known as the congregation of the Judge. The Bull, Taurus in Hebrew is called Shur and means coming to Rule. The first decan is in Hebrew called Orion and means coming forth as light. The third decan is Aurga and is the Shepherd holding the goat. Both decans depict the Ruler wounded in the foot.
In the horns are Venus and Mercury. Venus in Hebrew is Nogah and means bright. Mercury in Hebrew is Catab and means powerful strong and who comes.
May 26 09:43 Pollux 4.6°N of Moon
The moon is now in Gemini, The Twins, the united. In Hebrew is called Thaumim. This represents Yehovah and His bride as one. No more differences. The third Decan in Hebrew is Procyon The Redeemer. Pollux the star means, bearing a branch, ruler or judge
May 27 08:44 Beehive 1.7°S of Moon
The constellation Cancer is not a crab but is suppose to be a Sheepfold that protects the Sheep or Cattle. The Hebrew name is Sartan and means to hold or bind. In this Sheepfold is the cluster of stars called the Beehive, but in Hebrew, they called Praesepe which means the multitude, offspring. One of the stars in this beehive is called Acubene and means the sheltering, hiding place, assembled thousands. The two decans are the little bear and great bear. Both actually mean sheepfolds. The little Sheepfold and the Great Sheepfold. The Little Sheepfold are those who were raised up Passover when Yehshua came out of the grave. The Great Sheepfold represents those who will be raised up or changed when He comes at Shavuot, the Night of the Bride as it is also called. The third decan is the ship Argo and represents all the rest of mankind. These represent the three Chags we celebrate each year.
May 28 22:44 Regulus 4.3°S of Moon
May 29 17:30 FIRST QUARTER MOON
Jun 02 17:36 Moon at Perigee: 364366 km
Jun 03 08 Venus at Inferior Conjunction
Jun 04 03 Mercury at Greatest Elong: 23.6°E
Jun 05 09:12 FULL MOON
Jun 05 09:25 Pen. Lunar Eclipse; mag=0.568
Right after the Perigee on June 2, we have lunar Eclipse on June 5. This eclipse is a Dark moon, not a Blood Moon. We explain what this means and why the 4 Blood Moons at Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015 mean something to pay attention to. But we were the only ones warning you about the dark moons in 2016 at Passover and Sukkot. Get our E-book The Blood Moons– The Elephant in the Room.
Dark moons represent famine that is coming. Here we have a dark moon eclipse in June and then another in July of 2020. Until now I have not paid them any attention because they did not land on a Holy Day. But Cyrus is paying attention to them. And since I have recalculated the 2300 day count start date, I have now also begun to pay attention.
Do not neglect the fact that the 49th year of UNEP which began June 6-16 in Stockholm Sweden, ends at this time. The Covenant made with many which is today known as the Paris Accord. Also take note that BREXIT takes place this year and is a done deal come December 31, 2020. This too is a 49 year period of time having joined the common market as it was known then January 31, 1973. This was still part of the year 1972 because the year goes from Aviv to Aviv.
Here in this COVID pandemic, the UN has warned of 135 Million that were within 3 months’ time going to be at great risk of “Biblical Famine”. They announced this the week after Shavuot that was on May 3rd.
Here is the area of the earth where the dark moon will be seen from.
Jun 06 08:10 Moon at Descending Node
Jun 08 07:19 Jupiter 2.2°N of Moon
Jun 08 16:19 Saturn 2.7°N of Moon
Last Sabbath this verse in Zechariah was pointed out to me which I had not considered and I have now put it in here.
Zec 8:18 And the Word of Jehovah of Hosts came to me, saying,
Zec 8:19 So says Jehovah of Hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah for joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts. Therefore love truth and peace.
This year Torah Calendar is one month behind us because they kept Passover this year in April while we kept Passover this year in March. So what they are calling the 3rd month is our 4th month. Now notice that this fast of the fourth month Zechariah is speaking about is on June 9-10, 2020.
Here is the reason for this fast of the fourth month.
The fast of Tammuz, according to Rabbi Akiva’s interpretation, is the fast mentioned in the Book of Zechariah as “the fast of the fourth [month]” (Zechariah 8:19). This refers to Tammuz, which is the fourth month of the Hebrew calendar.
According to the Mishnah, five calamities befell the Jewish people on this day:
Moses broke the two tablets of stone on Mount Sinai;
The daily tamid offering ceased to be brought;
During the Roman siege of Jerusalem, the city walls were breached (proceeding to the destruction of the Second Temple);
Prior to Bar Kokhba’s revolt, Roman military leader Apostomus burned a Torah scroll;
An idol was erected in the Temple.
The Babylonian Talmud places the second and fifth tragedies in the First Temple period.
The Book of Jeremiah (39.2, 52.6–7) states that the walls of Jerusalem during the First Temple were breached on the 9th of Tammuz. Accordingly, the Babylonian Talmud dates the third tragedy (breach of Jerusalem’s walls) to the Second Temple period. However, the Jerusalem Talmud (Taanit IV, 5) states that in both eras the walls were breached on 17th Tammuz, and that the text in Jeremiah 39 is explained by stating that the Biblical record was “distorted”, apparently due to the troubled times.
The Seventeenth of Tammuz occurs forty days after the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Moses ascended Mount Sinai on Shavuot and remained there for forty days. The Children of Israel made the Golden Calf on the afternoon of the sixteenth of Tammuz when it seemed that Moses was not coming down when promised. Moses descended the next day (forty days by his count), saw that the Israelites were violating many of the laws he had received from God, and smashed the tablets.
Not only did the sieges of Jerusalem during the First and Second Temple periods occur on, or near, this date, but the breach of the walls of Jerusalem during the First Crusade occurred on the 17th of Tammuz.
I want to bring to your attention that they mention that Jeremiah said the walls were breached on the 9th and not the 17th. So we have two dates to keep in mind this year. I am merely pointing out many things that are taking place during the next couple of months and looking at history.
Jun 12 13:53 Mars 2.7°N of Moon
Jun 12 20:24 LAST QUARTER MOON
I am going to come back to this picture above of the constellation Sagittarius later. So I will not explain anything here. Let us again look at what Cyrus is saying for the Crazy Cycle and he has now raised the level to 75%. June is LGBTQ month around the world. And just as the world comes out of 3 months of being locked in their homes the very first thing they are going to do is begin to Celebrate LGBTQ parades around the world. It will be more celebratory now having been cooped in for 3 months.
When we have had this time to reflect and repent of our sins from not serving Yehovah nor growing closer to Him, the first thing we do as a society is this worldwide celebration. It is as if we are waving our fists at Yehovah defying Him. Everyone wants to get back to the way things were. TO get back to normal so they can continue to do things as they did before. NO ONE, is repenting. No nation is calling for people to get back the Torah. No one is saying we need to begin to keep the Sabbath and the Holy Days and the Sabbatical years. These are the things we have been saying and continue to say but no one is listening to us.
Phase IV = June 14 – July 4. How much = 75%.
Cyrus is now saying that for this section of this cycle the crazy scale is about 75%.
Jun 14 14:56 Moon at Apogee: 404597 km
Jun 18 22:52 Venus 0.7°S of Moon: Occn.
Jun 20 11:43 Summer Solstice
Jun 20 18:24 Moon at Ascending Node
We are now coming into a Solar Eclipse. This Ring of Fire will be seen over India. They had the blood moon for the June Eclipse and now they have this solar eclipse.
Jun 20 20:40 Annular Solar Eclipse; mag=0.994
Jun 20 20:41 NEW MOON
Jun 22 15:53 Pollux 4.5°N of Moon

Jul 04 18:30 Pen. Lunar Eclipse; mag=0.355
Jul 04 18:44 FULL MOON
The dark moon is a warning of famine. But this one is not occurring on a High Holy Day. But it is the day I recently shared with you all was about the start of the 2300 Day Count.
On this same day as the Eclipse, we have a conjunction with Jupiter and Saturn.
Phase V = July 5 – July 25. How much = 50%.
Jul 05 11:37 Jupiter 1.9°N of Moon
Jul 05 22:45 Saturn 2.5°N of Moon
This is in Sagittarius. The Hebrew name of this constellation is Kesith and means the Archer, the going forth. The Dark moon again means arrows of famine going forth. Are these two signs connected?
Jupiter in Hebrew is Tzedek and means righteous. Saturn in Hebrew is Sabbatei, resting.
Jul 10 02 Venus at Aphelion
Jul 11 02:10 Venus 1.0°N of Aldebaran
Jul 11 09:36 Mars 2.0°N of Moon
When I looked at Mars as it was in conjunction with the moon, my heart stopped. On July 11, the moon represents Israel in the tail of Cetus the Great Leviathan, the bound serpent, spoken of in the Bible. Mars in Hebrew is called Adom, and means bloodshedding.
The two fish are bound to the serpent by the cords. This serpent is the second decan of the constellation of Aries. Other depictions have the Lamb Aries taking hold of the two ribbons. The fish on the right represents Judah and the one going to the north represents Israel.
I looked through the rest of these conjunctions and did not see anything we have not already spoken of except for the next two pictures. But here are all the interesting dates
Jul 12 09:27 Moon at Apogee: 404201 km
Jul 12 13:29 LAST QUARTER MOON

Jul 30 23:32 Moon at Descending Node
Cyrus then winds down the crazy cycle to August 18. Keep in mind we are now approaching August when many of the mortgages and rental contracts were deferred 3 months due to the COVID 19 and the massive layoffs in March and April and now in August those people who are still unemployed must find a way to pay that bill. And when they can’t then foreclosures begin and the banks are left holding a huge amount of debt. Watch and see how many of those 39 million Americans are going back to work each week over the next few months or if this number is going up.
Phase VI = July 26 – August 18. How much = 30%.
Aug 01 10:14 Mercury 6.6°S of Pollux
Aug 01 13:30 Jupiter 1.5°N of Moon

Aug 09 03:51 Moon at Apogee: 404658 km
With the moon in Apogee look where the moon and Mars end up. In the Ribbon for Judan. Does this mean anything? We will know only after that date passes.
When I then went another month and looked at Sept 5, 2020, I see the moon in conjunction with Mars again only this time Mars is in the Ribbon connected to Israel. What does this mean? Again I do not know. I am only showing you what I have found.

In the book of Daniel 11, we have this amazing prophecy.
Dan 11:29 At the time appointed he shall return and come against the south. But it shall not be as the former or as the latter.
Dan 11:30 For the ships of Kittim shall come against him. And he shall be grieved and return, and have fury against the holy covenant. So he shall do; he shall even return and give heed to those who forsake the holy covenant.
Dan 11:31 And forces will stand from him, and they will profane the sanctuary, the fortress, and shall remove the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the desolating abomination.
Dan 11:32 And he will ruin by flattery those who do evil against the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will work.
Dan 11:33 And those who understand among the people shall teach many; yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by exile, and spoil, for days.
Dan 11:34 And when they stumble, they shall be helped with a little help, but many will join them, with hypocrisy.
Dan 11:35 And many of those who understand shall stumble, to refine and purge them, and to make white, to the time of the end. Because it is still for the appointed time.
Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will. And he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper until the fury is fulfilled. For that which is decreed shall be done.
Dan 11:37 He will not regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god. For he shall magnify himself above all.
Dan 11:38 But in his place he shall honor the god of forces; and a god whom his fathers did not know, he shall honor with gold and silver, and with precious stones and desirable things.
Dan 11:39 So he shall act in the fortresses of the strongholds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge. He shall multiply in glory, and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price.
Dan 11:40 And at the end-time, the king of the south shall butt at him. And the king of the north shall come against him like a tempest, with chariots and with horsemen and with many ships.
Dan 11:41 And he shall enter into the countries and shall overflow and pass over. He shall also enter into the glorious land, and many shall be stumbled. But these shall escape out of his hand: Edom and Moab, and the chief of the sons of Ammon.
Dan 11:42 And he shall stretch out his hand on the lands. And the land of Egypt shall not escape.
Dan 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt. And the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
Dan 11:44 But news out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him. Then he will go out with great fury to destroy, and to devote many to destruction.
The King of the North is the European Union. It is the Babylon of Revelation and it is represented as this great serpent Cetus that is going to attack and destroy Israel and Judah. Andromeda is the chained woman to the rock. She represents Israel. She is near death and about to be killed by Cetus after being raped and plundered by the Serpent. Perseus in Hebrew means the Breaker and He is representing the Messiah that cuts off the head of the serpent with its seven heads or seven resurrections of the Holy Roman Empire. Cassiopeia in Hebrew is the Enthroned, the Beautiful. She again represents Israel now sitting beside Her King, her Redeemer and her lover Yehovah.
I continue to watch for Iran to attack Europe and then to be invaded by Europe in retaliation. At this same time, I expect Europe to take over North Africa and all the Middle East including the State of Israel. When the USA steps in to protect the oil of Saudi Arabia and or Israel, I expect the USA and UK to then be a surprise attack by the New European Super Power and I am expecting that to begin this year.
The 9th of Av
I forget to mention this little bit of information. This year we are one month earlier than many others as far as keeping the Holy Days is concerned. The 5th month for us is what Torah Calendar is calling the 4th month. July 1st and July 2nd, 2020, is going to be the 9th and the 10th of Ab the fifth month.
Excavated stones from the Western Wall of the Temple Mount (Jerusalem, Israel), knocked onto the street below by Roman battering rams in 70 AD
According to the Mishnah (Taanit 4:6), five specific events occurred on the ninth of Av that warrant fasting:
The Twelve Spies sent by Moses to observe the land of Canaan returned from their mission. Only two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, brought a positive report, while the others spoke disparagingly about the land. The majority report caused the Children of Israel to cry, panic and despair of ever entering the “Promised Land”. For this, they were punished by God that their generation would not enter the land. The midrash quotes God as saying about this event, “You cried before me pointlessly, I will fix for you [this day as a day of] crying for the generations”, alluding to the future misfortunes which occurred on the same date.
The First Temple built by King Solomon was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 587 BCE, and the population of the Kingdom of Judah was sent into the Babylonian exile. According to the Bible, the First Temple’s destruction began on the 7th of Av (2 Kings 25:8) and continued until the 10th (Jeremiah 52:12). According to the Talmud, the actual destruction of the Temple began on the Ninth of Av, and it continued to burn throughout the Tenth of Av.
The Second Temple built by Ezra and Nehemiah was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE, scattering the people of Judea and commencing the Jewish exile from the Holy Land that continues to this day.
The Romans subsequently crushed Bar Kokhba’s revolt and destroyed the city of Betar, killing over 500,000 Jewish civilians (approximately 580,000) on August 4, 135 CE.
Following the Bar Kokhba revolt, Roman commander Turnus Rufus plowed the site of the Temple in Jerusalem and the surrounding area, in 135 CE.
Over time, Tisha B’Av has come to be a Jewish day of mourning, not only for these events, but also for later tragedies which occurred on or near the 9th of Av. References to some of these events appear in liturgy composed for Tisha B’Av (see below).
The First Crusade officially commenced on August 15, 1096 (Av 24, AM 4856), killing 10,000 Jews in its first month and destroying Jewish communities in France and the Rhineland.
The Jews were expelled from England on July 18, 1290 (Av 9, AM 5050).
The Jews were expelled from France on July 22, 1306 (Av 10, AM 5066).
The Jews were expelled from Spain on July 31, 1492 (Av 7, AM 5252).
Germany entered World War I on August 1–2, 1914 (Av 9–10, AM 5674), which caused massive upheaval in European Jewry and whose aftermath led to the Holocaust.
On August 2, 1941 (Av 9, AM 5701), SS commander Heinrich Himmler formally received approval from the Nazi Party for “The Final Solution.” As a result, the Holocaust began during which almost one third of the world’s Jewish population perished.
On July 23, 1942 (Av 9, AM 5702), began the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, en route to Treblinka.
The AMIA bombing, of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, killed 85 and injured 300 on July 18, 1994 (10 Av, AM 5754).
The Israeli disengagement from Gaza began in the Gaza Strip, expelling 8000 Jews who lived in Gush Katif; August 15, 2005; 10 Av, 5765.
Spies Sent into Canaan
Num 13:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses saying,
Num 13:2 Send men so that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give to the sons of Israel. You shall send a man from every tribe of their fathers, everyone a ruler among them.
Num 13:3 And Moses by the command of Jehovah sent them from the wilderness of Paran. All those men were heads of the sons of Israel.
Num 13:4 And these were their names: Of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur.
Num 13:5 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.
Num 13:6 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
Num 13:7 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.
Num 13:8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.
Num 13:9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.
Num 13:10 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.
Num 13:11 Of the tribe of Joseph, of the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi.
Num 13:12 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.

Num 13:14 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.
Num 13:15 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi.
Num 13:16 These were the names of the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Joshua.
Num 13:17 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said to them, Go up this way, southward, and go up into the mountain.
Num 13:18 And see the land, what it is, and the people that live in it, whether it is strong or weak, few or many.
Num 13:19 And see what the land is that they live in, whether it is good or bad; and what cities they dwell in, whether in tents or in strongholds;
Num 13:20 and what the land is, whether fat or lean, whether there is wood in it or not. And be of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of first ripe grapes.
Num 13:21 So they went up and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin to Rehob, as men come to Hamath.
Num 13:22 And they went up by the south and came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the sons of Anak were. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)
Num 13:23 And they came to the valley of Eshcol and cut from there a branch with one cluster of grapes. And they carried it between two men upon a staff, and some of the pomegranates and of the figs.
Num 13:24 The place was called the valley of Eshcol because of the cluster of grapes which the sons of Israel cut down from there.
Report of the Spies
Num 13:25 And they returned from spying out the land after forty days.
Num 13:26 And they left and came to Moses and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, to the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh. And they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.
Num 13:27 And they told him and said, We came to the land where you sent us, and surely it flows with milk and honey. And this is the fruit of it.
Num 13:28 However, the people that dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are walled, very great. And also we saw the children of Anak there.
Num 13:29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south, and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains. And the Canaanites dwell by the sea and by the coast of Jordan.
Num 13:30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses and said, Let us go up at once and possess it. For we are well able to overcome it.
Num 13:31 But the men that went up with him said, We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.
Num 13:32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched to the sons of Israel, saying, The land through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eats up those who live in it. And all the people whom we saw in it were men of stature.
Num 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, of the giants. And we were in our own sight like grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
The People Rebel
Num 14:1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice and cried. And the people wept that night.
Num 14:2 And all the sons of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron. And the whole congregation said to them, Oh that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or, Oh that we had died in the wilderness!
Num 14:3 And why has Jehovah brought us into this land to fall by the sword, so that our wives and our sons should be a prey? Would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?
Num 14:4 And they said to one another, Let us make a leader, and let us return to Egypt.
Num 14:5 And Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the sons of Israel.
Num 14:6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, of those that searched the land, tore their clothes.
Num 14:7 And they spoke to all the company of the sons of Israel saying, The land which we passed through to search is an exceedingly good land.
Num 14:8 If Jehovah delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey.
Num 14:9 Only do not rebel against Jehovah, neither fear the people of the land. For they are bread for us. Their protection has moved from them, and Jehovah is with us. Do not fear them.
Num 14:10 But all the congregation said to stone them with stones. And the glory of Jehovah appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the sons of Israel.
Num 14:11 And Jehovah said to Moses, How long will this people provoke Me? And how long will it be before they believe Me, for all the signs which I have shown among them?
Num 14:12 I will strike them with the pestilence and will disinherit them, and will make of you a greater nation and mightier than they.
Moses Intercedes for the People
Num 14:13 And Moses said to Jehovah, Then the Egyptians will hear, for You have brought up this people in Your might from among them.
Num 14:14 And they will say to the inhabitant of this land, They have heard that You, Jehovah, are among this people, who is seen eye to eye. You areJehovah, and Your cloud stands over them, and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day, and in a pillar of fire by night.
Num 14:15 And will You kill this people as one man? Then the nations who have heard Your fame will speak, saying,
Num 14:16 Because Jehovah was not able to bring this people into the land which He swore to them, therefore He has slain them in the wilderness.
Num 14:17 And now, I beseech You, let the power of my Lord be great, according as You have spoken, saying,
Num 14:18 Jehovah is long-suffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation.
Num 14:19 I beseech You, pardon the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Your mercy, and as You have forgiven this people from Egypt even until now.
God Promises Judgment
Num 14:20 And Jehovah said, I have pardoned according to your word.
Num 14:21 But truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of Jehovah.
Num 14:22 Because all those men who have seen My glory and My miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not listened to My voice,
Num 14:23 surely they shall not see the land which I swore to their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked Me see it.
Num 14:24 But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and has followed Me fully, I will bring him into the land into which he went. And his seed shall possess it.
Num 14:25 (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites lived in the valley.) Tomorrow turn and go into the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea.
Num 14:26 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
Num 14:27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmurs against Me? I have heard the murmurings of the sons of Israel which they murmur against Me.
Num 14:28 Say to them, As I live, says Jehovah, as you have spoken in My ears, so I will do to you.
Num 14:29 Your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness, and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against Me,
Num 14:30 you shall certainly not come into the land which I swore to make you live in, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.
Num 14:31 But your little ones, which you said should be a prey, I will bring them in and they shall know the land which you have despised.
Num 14:32 But as for you, your bodies shall fall in this wilderness.
Num 14:33 And your sons shall feed in the wilderness forty years and bear your fornications, until your dead bodies have wasted in the wilderness.
Num 14:34 According to the number of the days in which you searched the land, forty days, each day for a year you shall bear your iniquities, forty years; and you shall know My alienation.
Num 14:35 I Jehovah have spoken; I will surely do it to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. They shall be destroyed in this wilderness, and there they shall die.
Num 14:36 And the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report upon the land,
Num 14:37 even those men that brought up the evil report upon the land died by the plague before Jehovah.
Num 14:38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, of the men that went to spy out the land, lived.
Israel Defeated in Battle
Num 14:39 And Moses told these sayings to all the sons of Israel. And the people mourned greatly.
Num 14:40 And they rose up early in the morning and went up to the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we are here, and will go up to the place which Jehovah has promised, for we have sinned.
Num 14:41 And Moses said, Why do you now go beyond the command of Jehovah, since it shall not be blessed?
Num 14:42 Do not go up, for Jehovah is not among you. And shall you not be beaten before your enemies?
Num 14:43 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you shall fall by the sword. Because you have turned away from Jehovah, therefore Jehovah will not be with you.
Num 14:44 But they presumed to go up to the hill top. But the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and Moses, did not leave the camp.
Num 14:45 And the Amalekites and the Canaanites who were living in that mountain came down and struck them, and beat them down, to Hormah.
Brethren with the world now dealing with COVID since January and February this year of 2020 and the entire world in lockdown, you might just think some would repent. But no one is. All they want to do is get back to the way things were. Get back to NORMAL. If your child did not repent after you punished them but went back to the way they were, you would double down on your punishment. Watch out as Yehovah is about to do the same thing in the months and years ahead until we as a nation repent and beg for HIs forgiveness and return to Him and begin to seriously obey Him and give Him the honour He is due.
Since clearly It’s apparent that crescent moon observance is correct I have a question.
Is there a way or another calendar available I can use to request Holy Days off from work, in advance?
The Hillel calendar has been provided by UCG which Has made it convenient to request days off in advance.
Any recommendations would be welcomed
