May 6, 2017

Shabbat Shalom to our Family around the world

What are we to learn from Counting the Omer? What Does it mean?

This Sabbath represents the 21st day of the counting of the Omer.

Do you ever consider why Yehovah has you do some of the things He does?

Why count the Omer? Yes to know when Shavuot is. But what is another reason for counting the Omer? What are you to learn from doing this?

The counting to 50, Shavuot or Pentecost, is also an annual reminder of where we are in the Jubilee cycle.

Yehovah knew many would forget when the Jubilee years are unless He gave us a yearly reminder of them. The Jubilee cycle of 50 years is represented to us each year as we count the 50 days to Shavuot.

We have explained this in great detail and proven the facts to you in our book Remembering the Sabbatical year of 2016 of precisely when is a Jubilee year. Anyone can figure it out. All you need to do is go to 2 Kings 19:29 and read it and understand that Yehovah is giving you a scripture of precisely when a Jubilee year was. This event in 2 Kings 19:29 is one of only two times when the chronology of the Hebrew Kings lined up with and matched a known and proven chronology from another outside source. That source was that of Senecharib of Assyria who recorded this event in his records.

That Assyrian recorded event was then added to many other Assyrian events that chronologist have been able to trace using history and archeology and astronomical events to prove this chronology true and correct. Had it not been for the Assyrian chronology, we would have no records as to when the Hebrew Kings lived and reigned.

That year of 2 Kings 19:29 was and is 701 B.C. The 2nd year of letting the land rest was and is 700 B.C. and from this date alone you can trace every Jubilee year in history and in the future. But we are also given one, and only one other Jubilee year in the entire bible. That year is the year Joshua enters the promised land and it has to match up to the Jubilee year that we get from 2 Kings 19:29. We show you this and how you can prove this in the book Remembering the Sabbatical year of 2016 and in our video series which you can also watch for free. I do hope you will watch them and learn these awesome truths Yehovah has given to us.

So with 2 Kings 19:29 alone we can know when all the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are in history and in the future. This is just amazing to understand and so exciting to know. You and I now have the means to know when Yehovah has declared another Sabbath. Just like the weekly Sabbath and the 7 annual Holy Days that we keep each year Yehovah has shown us when the Sabbatical year of rest is that we are to keep and prepare for and be excited about, in the exact same way we do for each Holy Day and each weekly Sabbath.

Some of you just kept your first one. How awesome was that?

Shavuot was the giving of the law at Mount Sinai. The laws of the Kingdom that all must keep to be in that same Kingdom. It is our Ketubah, or marriage vows that we must keep in order to be married to Yehovah. The Holy Spirit was also given at Shavuot in the book of Acts. That same spirit is now being poured out in these last days on all flesh as Joel said it would be.

Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.

The Law of Mount Sinai and the Spirit of Yehovah are connected.

Shavuot is also connected to the Jubilee year when we will be restored back to our own lands at that time. This takes place at Sukkot.

The Trumpets are blown at Atonement during the Jubilee year. They are not blown the year before as a warning as some teach, but they are blown during the Jubilee year at Atonement. This is when the shofars are sounded. Notice it says the trumpet of the Jubilee, not the trumpet of the year before the Jubilee.

Lev 25:9 Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field.
“In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.

Lest you confuse the Silver Trumpets with the Trumpet of the Jubilee, let me share this short commentary on it.

The blowing of the silver trumpets by Aaron and his sons has generally been taken to denote the preaching of the gospel. But the interpretation is a mistaken one, and arises from confounding the trumpet of jubilee (Leviticus 25:9; Luke 4:16) with the silver trumpet. Although bearing the same name in the English Bible, these are quite different instruments, and are called by different Hebrew names. The former is the shophar or cornet, which, as its name implies, was of horn, or at least horn-shaped; whereas the latter, the chatsotser, was a long straight tube of silver with a bell-shaped mouth. The true intention of the silver trumpets is distinctly enough indicated in the law before us. They were to be to the children of Israel for a memorial before their God (verse 10); the promise was that when the trumpets were blown, the people should be remembered before the Lord their God, and he would save them from their enemies (verse 9). In other words, the blowing of the silver trumpets was a figure of PRAYER (cf. Acts 10:4). An exceedingly striking and suggestive figure it is.

And what else does this Jubilee year represent?

As we have shown you in many other teachings, the Jubilee year is connected to the 8th Day that comes after the end of Sukkot. The 8th day is the day when Yehovah is to dwell with man on this earth. So the Jubilee year is the year we return to our original lands.

There was a Jubilee year in 1947. You are aware that the state of Israel was declared by the UN in November of 1947? That was a Jubilee year that began at Aviv in that same year.

Do you also realize that the year Joshua entered the promised land was a Jubilee year? We show you this in our Sabbatical and Jubilee year charts.

What is the significance of the fall of Jericho in the Jubilee year?

Many believe that the story of the fall of Jericho is a prophecy of the future fall of Babylon, which will be a time of “Jubilee” when Yehovah’s people will be delivered.  The seven priests blowing the Seven Trumpets look forward to the Seven Trumpets of Revelation 8 & 9 which introduce the Seven Last Plagues and the Second Coming of Messiah to deliver His people.

Joshua the son of Nun is also something you need to consider.

Joshua is the first person in Scripture to be given a name that is a compound name of the personal name of Yehovah. Moses combined the name Yehovah with the word Salvation. Literally, Joshua’s name means Yehovah Saves. Ye (J) ho (0) Shua (Shua) (J O SHUA) and from this we get Yehoshua which I have been calling Yehshua and many others call Jesus.

Hidden five times within the text of Joshua, Chapter 6, is the “Jubilee.”  Yet this Good News is rarely understood by Christians because the translators deliberately mistranslated the Hebrew word, yobel,  as “rams’ horn” instead of the proper word “Jubilee,” #3104 in Strong’s Concordance.

#3104 (Jubilee) is also arbitrarily mistranslated “blast” or “blasting.”  (See Joshua 6:4,6,8,13)

Joshua 6:4 And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. But the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.

Joshua 6:6 Then Joshua the son of Nun called the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the Lord.”

Joshua 6:8 So it was, when Joshua had spoken to the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the Lord advanced and blew the trumpets, and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them.

Joshua 6:13 Then seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the Lord went on continually and blew with the trumpets. And the armed men went before them. But the rear guard came after the ark of the Lord, while the priests continued blowing the trumpets.

H3104   yo^be^l  yo^be^l     yo-bale’, yo-bale’

Apparently from H2986; the blast of a horn (from its continuous sound); specifically the signal of the silver trumpets; hence the instrument itself and the festival thus introduced: – jubile, ram’s horn, trumpet.

As you can see from the excerpts from Strong’s Concordance shown below, the word yobel  ALWAYS means Jubilee, EXCEPT (of course) when the translators purposely DECIDED on their own to translate it arbitrarily as another word!

The word “ram” or “rams” in the Hebrew is #352 in Strong’s Concordance, the Hebrew word ayil, meaning strength, a political chief, a ram (from its strength) or an oak or another strong tree.  It is a TOTALLY different word from yobel.

The word “horn” in the Hebrew is #7161 in Strong’s Concordance

The word #7782 is “trumpet” and is translated that way virtually everywhere in the Old Testament, EXCEPT here in Joshua, Chapter 6, where the story reveals the “Jubilee” message in the episode at Jericho.

Joshua 6:4  Also seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of Jubilee (rams’ horns) before the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. 5 And it shall be that when they make a long blast with the Jubilee horn (rams’ horn) and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people will go up every man straight ahead. . .6 So Joshua the son of Nun called the priests and said to them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests carry seven trumpets of Jubilee (rams’ horns) before the ark of the Lord.” 7 Then he said to the people, “Go forward, and march around the city, and let the armed men go on before the ark of the Lord.” 8 And it was so, that when Joshua had spoken to the people, the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of Jubilee (rams’ horns) before the Lord went forward and blew the trumpets; and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them. . .13 And the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of Jubilee (rams’ horns) before the ark of the Lord went on continually, and blew the trumpets; and the armed men went before them, and the rear guard came after the ark of the Lord, while they continued to blow the trumpets.

The Jubilee trumpet was supposed to be sounded on the Day of Atonement in that 50th year, before the Feast of Tabernacles, which was a seven-day feast and represents the wedding of the bride with Yehovah. Why is the Jubilee Trumpet blasted on Atonement before Sukkot? What does it mean?

In Joshua 6:19 Yehovah instructed the Israelites regarding the plunder from the conquest of Jericho:

19:  But all the silver and gold and articles of bronze and iron are holy to the Lord; they shall go into the treasury of the Lord.

Yehovah said that the gold, silver, bronze (brass) and iron were ALL His and should go into the Lord’s treasury.  These are the same metals of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2, and represent ALL the nations of the world.  Joshua is here prophesying that all the kingdoms of this world will come into Yehovah’s “treasury.”

This law of gold and silver and its significance is repeated in Haggai 2:8,9:

8:  The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,” declares the Lord of hosts.  9  “The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,” says the Lord of hosts, “and in this place I shall give peace,” declares the Lord of hosts.

These metals will be “refined” in the “fire” of His judgment with the goal of correction, “returning to righteousness” (Ps 94:15).

I used to think that Israel marched around Jericho during the 7 days of Unleavened Bread. But having now learned about the Yobel trumpet they made as they circled Jericho, I now suspect but can’t yet prove it, that they marched around Jericho once each week counting up to Shavuot and then on the 7th week they went around 7 times and then shouted. Again that is my own opinion. This would then connect the Yobel Trumpets being blasted with the counting of the Omer to Shavuot.

Israel counted the years as they wandered in the wilderness. They counted the 40 years until the time of the curse had expired. Moses knew that the curse expired when the Jubilee year arrived. They were, in fact, counting the Omer in a yearly manner. In the same way, we count down for a rocket launch, we are to count the Omer down in an expectation of something that is about to happen.

This year as we count the Omer towards Shavuot we also have a yearly reminder of which year we are in, in the Jubilee cycle. 2017 is the first year of the 4th Sabbatical cycle. It is also the 22nd year of this Jubilee cycle. This corresponds to the 22nd day of counting the omer and is the first day of this coming week, Sunday, May 7, 2017.

We are counting down the years remaining in this Jubilee cycle until we arrive at the 7th Millennium. This 7th Millennium begins in 2045 because we know and have done the chronology of Genesis and our modern history and we know where we are in time.

But before that 7th Millennium begins Satan must be locked away. He is locked away on the Day of Atonement. His Kingdoms of gold, silver, brass and iron (Babylon, Media-Persia, Grecian and Roman Empires), must be destroyed as Jericho was destroyed with a mighty shout. Is the blasting of the Yobel Trumpets on Atonement in the Jubilee year a reminder of the fall of Jericho?

The Torah was given on Shavuot. The Holy Spirit was given on Shavuot. 3 Million Israelites and non-Israelites heard the voice of Yehovah on Shavuot.

The TORAH  is LIFE. The Holy Spirit is life. The breath of life.

Prover 4:22 For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.

Yehovah’s desire is to dwell with us here on earth, but we must obey the laws of the Kingdom. Those laws and our obedience to them are what gives us life. But there is more to this great event. Read again about this day in Exodus when Yehovah came down to the earth. Read how it shook and just how piercing the trumpet blasts were.

Exodus 19:16 Then it came to pass on the third day, in the morning, that there were thunderings and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain; and the sound of the trumpet was very loud, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly. And when the blast of the trumpet sounded long and became louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by voice. Then the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain. And the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.

We have explained to you about the wave sheaf that takes place during the days of Unleavened Bread and how Yehoshua came out of the grave. All those saints who had died in the faith before that day in 31 C.E. also came back to life and came out of the graves and walked into Jerusalem as we are told in Mathew 27:50

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

Yehoshua came out of the grave at the end of the Sabbath. This was the start of the 1st day of the week. That event took place at the wave offering and this is why He told Mary not to touch Him as He had not yet ascended to the Father in Heaven to present the wave offering, which is done at 9 Am Sunday morning.

There is another wave offering of wheat that takes place at Shavuot. This is the one we are striving to be a part of.

The next wave offering is Shavuot. We should be shouting this out. We should be yobeling this awesome news.

When will we see our loved ones who died before us? When will we see our parents or spouses and children who died in the faith?

Everyone in the faith who has died since Yehoshua ascended up to heaven that wave Sheaf day in 31C.E. up until when He comes again to collect us at the end of this age, is going to be raised up at this time. At Shavuot in the very near future. We are counting down to this time right now as we count the Jubilee years the same as we count the omer to Shavuot.

1 Cor 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

This trumpet is the trumpet sounded at Shavuot, not the Feast of Trumpets as many assume. This Trumpet at Shavuot is for the raising of the dead in the faith to meet Him in the air and those of us who are still alive will then be changed to also be raised up.

1 Thess 4:13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Notice what you are told in Revelation about the 144,000. You have Yehovah’s voice as thunder or a trumpet blast. The redeemed are first fruits which is what Shavuot is all about.

Rev 14:1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Names are very important in the ancient Hebrew world. They usually reflected the significant character, history, or meaning of that to which they were attached. Three separate names were used by the Hebrew Scriptures for the Feast of Shavuot, which in the Hebrew means: “Weeks.” Each name emphasized a different facet of its observance. The most common Hebrew designation was Hag Hashavuot, meaning: “The Feast of Weeks.”Sheva means seven, shavu’ah means week, and Shavuot means weeks. Shavuotwas called the Feast of Weeks because seven weeks were counted from the Feast of First Fruits until the observing of this feast.

The primary meaning of the feast was reflected in the Hebrew name, Yom Habikkurim, or the “Day of First Fruits,” since Shavuot was the day on which the first fruit offerings of the summer wheat crop were brought to the Temple:

“And you shall celebrate the Feast of Weeks, that is, the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the turn of the year. Exodus 34:22 NASB

Thus, Shavuot marked the BEGINNING of the SUMMER WHEAT HARVEST even as Israel’s earlier Feast of First Fruits marked the beginning of the SPRING BARLEY HARVEST.

The third designation, Hag Hakatzir (hog ha kot-seer) or “The Feast of Harvests,” reflected the fact that this festival was the official beginning of the summer harvest season. In addition to the biblical designations, the Talmud and Josephus referred to this festival as Atzeret, meaning: “CONCLUSION.” They viewed Shavuot as the conclusion of the Passover season and of the seven-week spring harvest since there are no other major Jewish holy days until the autumn.

It is the position of sightedmoon.com that we are in the final Jubilee cycle of this 6th millennial day of mankind. We are about to begin the 7th Millennium of rest in 2045 with the Jubilee year that year.

But Yehoshua said;

Matt 24:21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

We believe Satan will be locked away at Atonement in 2033 which is the same time in the Jubilee cycle as the Flood of Noah and as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

We also believe that this time is at the end of the Great Tribulation because that is when the 144,000 are raised up.

Rev 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.
Amen.”
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
And I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

So on the day of Shavuot in the year 2033, just 16 years from now, at the end of the Great tribulation all those Saints that died after Yehoshua came out of the grave will be raised up. Along with them your loved ones, your spouses and your parents and your children who have died in the faith well be raised up at this time.

“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

How awesome is the plan of Yehovah? How blessed are we to know it and understand it? Thanks be to Yehovah for His mercies.

No Buying or Selling Without this Mark

Last week we spoke to you about the Mark of Yehovah and that His mark was the Sabbath, the Holy Days and the Sabbatical years upon you. Satan’s mark was any other day or holidays besides Yehovah.

 

In the mail this week came the following letter.

Heya Joe

It’s Rhonda Bennet, Peter Bennet’s wife, here (just in case you can’t remember me).  Have just read the article noted above and wanted to say I thought it was excellent and very well laid out.  I found it most enlightening your interpretation of the marking of Satan’s people as this was a different concept to what I had previously had. I believed that Yah’s people are marked the way you explained but I suppose I had always viewed Satan’s marking as a physical sign on hand or forehead and related it to the chip (now becoming available in our societies which will be used to allow one to buy and sell). I see that this is not necessarily the case.  I was discussing with Peter about how then does the refusal to take the beasts mark lead to us not being able to buy and sell as noted in Rev 13:17.  Do you have some thoughts on this?  I did say to Peter that in this day and age it is becoming very hard to find a career that does not compromise aspects of our faith whether it is in relation to keeping the Sabbath and set apart days or due to other compromises of the word one would have to make e.g. nurses and other medical professionals are required here in NZ to study at least two other alternative medicines, study other cultures’ faiths so that they can better relate to patients etc.  Cake decorators in NZ must be willing to make and decorate cakes for celebrations that are abhorrent to us and also if one refuses to make cakes for gay marriages you are shut down.  If you refuse to immunise your children (most of the immunisations that are used on infants/toddlers contain aborted fetal tissue) then they are refused funding etc for childcare and prohibited from attending certain daycare centres (not that I believe children should be in them anyway but I see that schooling will be next, also do not believe in that). There are so many other professions that compromise our walk if you really look into them.  Based on this is it not already creating a dilemma for ourselves and our children.  Do you believe that there will be a physical component as well which will inhibit one from buying and selling or do you view it in terms of what we see happening in our society today?

 

We also purchased your 2300 Days of Hell book which I have been working my way through.  So far, fantastic.  I am up to chapter 9 so I am just getting into the good bits.  I am sure that the next time we see you in Israel there will be plenty of interesting discussion.  We are hoping to go this Sukkot, we are just waiting to see what happens with North Korea as we usually book through Korean Airlines and we are on the ground for 24 hours close to the border with N. Korea.  The upside to tensions is cheaper air tickets but obviously the down side is the possibility of war.  Based on this 7 year cycle it’s a strong contender.  If things don’t settle by Shavuot then we will have to travel via another route, shame as Korea works the best for our family.  Hopefully we will see you then.

Blessings

Rhonda

Here is the verse in question.

Revelation 13:17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

In the past, I was content to assume this was answered in last week’s post about the Sabbath being Yehovah’s mark and all others holidays not found in Lev 23 were Satan’s.

But, knowing who the Beast is and the current world events taking place, I must look again at this subject with fresh eyes.

Let me share with you what I am seeing now in the news and how this along with all we have shared in the past is lining up with end time prophecy.

We have this news story from March of 2017.

As Japanese Prime Minister Shinz? Abe visits Brussels Tuesday, the European Union faces intensifying pressure to deliver on a promised pivot to Asia by sealing a new trade accord and strategic political partnership with Japan before year’s end.

Since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, European leaders have rushed to style themselves as the new vanguard of global free trade and pledged to fill the vacuum created by an increasingly protectionist United States.

Zeroing in on fast-growing markets, the Europeans argue that Trump’s withdrawal from a landmark 12-nation trade accord in the Asia-Pacific region creates an economic opportunity — and geopolitical imperative — to build a bridgehead there. While European Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström has cast Brussels as the heavyweight alternative to Washington for partners ranging from Mexico to Indonesia, Asian governments are looking to Europe for stability and leadership.

But the EU’s protracted battle to secure a trade deal with Japan, a longtime ally and Asia’s most mature democracy, lays bare the challenges and frustrations of trying to become a bigger player in the East.

The EU is hardly a stranger to Asian deals, having negotiated major accords with South Korea, Singapore and Vietnam. And in Brussels, senior officials profess optimism about clinching the agreement with Tokyo, which would be their biggest trade deal. Buoyed by a recent pact with Canada, officials are hoping to use Abe’s visit to build momentum.

Because of the void created by the new Trump administration, the EU is pouncing at the chance to create new trading partners, especially after the BREXIT fiasco.

And over the past week, I have the following two briefs from The Trumpet.com

4/27/17

Don’t trust Germany! That’s what one German son of a Nazi war criminal recently told the BBC. Niklas Frank’s notorious father Hans was the Nazi governor-general of Poland during World War II. According to the Independent, Hans was appointed by Adolf Hitler and was intricately involved in the murder of millions. After the war, Hans was executed for his war crimes. His son Niklas was just 7 years old.

Today, Niklas is 78, and he is worried that history is repeating itself. He knows that to outside observers, Germany is still seen as a bastion of moderation and tolerance. But on the inside, if you are paying attention, you see the demons of Germany’s past stirring once again.

“As you can see with Merkel and the refugees,” Niklas says with broken English, “everything changed because the silent majority … as if it were Jews again… [said] ‘Ah, this swamp is coming.’”

Niklas says he is speaking out because no one else will. During the interview, he said that Germany is preparing to revert to dictatorship. “There is still something in the German people which makes me fear them,” he said.

When the BBC reporter interrupted to defend Germany’s post-war record of multiculturalism and tolerance, Niklas said this: “As long as our economy is great and we make money, everything is very democratic, but if we have five to 10 years of heavy economic problems, the swamp is a lake, and is a sea, and will swallow again, everything.”

Niklas probably doesn’t know how close his warning message aligns with Bible prophecy! For decades, we have been proclaiming that a Daniel 8 dictatorship will emerge out of Germany to lead a union of 10 kings or nations, a United States of Europe. We have also said that an economic crisis will most likely trigger this reconfiguration of Europe.

My father provides an excellent summary of what God’s Church has been proclaiming for nearly a century in his latest article, “Germany and the Last Holy Roman Empire.” For more on Niklas Frank’s recent interview with the BBC, listen to today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, posted at theTrumpet.com: “Son of Nazi War Criminal: Don’t Trust Germany.”

Yesterday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the British people they shouldn’t have any “illusions” about the United Kingdom maintaining parity with European Union member states once Britain exits the bloc. “A third-party state will not have the same rights,” Merkel declared. She also said Germany would hold Britain to its financial commitments to the EU—commitments that stretch beyond Britain’s exit date.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was quick to respond to Merkel’s stern warning, saying the 27 EU nations were lining up to OPPOSE Britain.

As you watch this messy divorce unfold, we can’t help but refer back to statements Herbert W. Armstrong made well over a half century ago. In 1956, Mr. Armstrong wrote, “Germany is the economic and military heart of Europe. Probably Germany will lead and dominate the coming United States of Europe. But Britain will be no part of it!”

Germany will DOMINATE Europe — and Britain won’t be part of it. That’s what Mr. Armstrong forecast 60 years ago. And today, THOSE ARE THE HEADLINES!

On my radio program today, I referred to “Germany Has an Arrogance Problem,” posted yesterday at Foreign Policy. Paul Hockenos wrote, “Whether the field is migration or manufacturing, fiscal policy or renewable energy, Germans increasingly believe that they, and they alone, know best, at least judging from the attitude newly on display everywhere from newspaper columns to parliamentary speeches to barroom chats over beer.”

We also have the following news report from March 20, 2017

The European Union’s trade chief says Canada is a key partner against the job-killing, anti-trade sentiment coming from Donald Trump’s administration.

EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom delivered that hard-hitting message in a speech Monday in Toronto, where she visited Canadian businesses that she said would benefit from the Canada-EU free trade agreement.

Trump’s protectionist, “America First” mantra has sent shock waves through the EU, which will soon be entering into divorce negotiations with Britain following its referendum decision last summer to leave the 28-country bloc.

Trump has praised Britain’s Brexit decision, while the prospects of a U.S.-EU free trade deal have since tanked.

Malmstrom offered her own broadside against Trump.

“In an age when some doors are closing, we are clear to the world that ours are open,” she said in a prepared text. “We are building bridges, not walls.”

Malmstrom said the EU is vigorously pursuing trade deals in southeast Asia, Japan and Mexico.

We also have the following report from Feb 17, 2017

The European Union is positioning itself to fill any vacuum left behind by the United States as the Trump administration spurns trade deals in Asia and Latin America.

E.U. Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström said Brussels has been in close contact with several Asia-Pacific countries since the White House decided to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

“We have seen that many of the TPP countries are now approaching us and saying ‘we still want to do deals,’” Ms. Malmström told Handelsblatt. “We are engaged with basically all of them, either negotiating or have a deal or preparing negotiations.”

It is quite clear that the EU is acting as quickly as possible to land trade deals with as many of the other nations as possible. I could pull up many news reports from Africa as well.

We all know and understand the EU led by the German economy is the Great Whore of Revelations. She is also the King of the North that will soon war with the King of the South and dominate it and control the Middle East and North Africa. This information along with trade deals with Asia, South America, and Africa pretty much tells us that most of the world will be under the domination of this EU juggernaut. And unless you play by our rules you will not be able to play at all.

Hence the UK BREXIT and the USA tearing up the TPP and getting out of the Paris Treaty will put the two leading nations of the 12 tribes of Israel on the outside looking in. When you also note that the EU dominates the UN along with the key positions given to Islamic nations, you can also bet on the state of Israel, Judah being on the outside as well.

So, in this case, the mark of the beast, would be the name of that country on one of these trade deals. I do not have absolute proof to this, but this is the way I see things lining up right now. Canada has joined itself to this trading block.

and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

We have an interesting prophecy in Daniel that we must look at.

Daniel 11:36 “Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.

This god of fortresses is the god Cybele, which today is known as the Blessed Virgin Mary and is the Catholic Church and her daughters the Protestant churches. You simply must read in our book The 2300 Days of Hell  and learn the details of who Cybele is and how she is also known as Gaia and Mother Earth. Mary Worship and mother earth worship are both promoted by the EU and the UN and Rome.

But this new god that their fathers did not know is Islam and this is the current religion sweeping the world and the EU. What are those millions of newly arrive immigrants doing in Germany and the rest of the EU? Once this King of the north, the EU, subdues the King of the South, the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East then they will push Islam on all those trading nations and succeed.

Here is a recent quote from Gatestone Institute;

The price for reversing Germany’s demographic decline appears to be the further Islamization of Germany under the guise of multiculturalism.

Once this King of the north, the EU, subdues the King of the South, the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East will then push Islam on all those trading nations and succeed.

So unless you’re part of the trading block with the EU and then later submitted to the Islamic EU led by the mighty Assyrian German people once again, you will not trade nor buy or sell.

Stay tuned it is about to get very messy out there and where are you going to flee to then?
