Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,
Love One Another
I shared this back in 2016 and do so now again as a reminder to all of us again this year. With our Brethren about to begin their fall Holy Days, while some of us have already kept them last month, I want to remind everyone what my friend Nehemiah Gordon wrote on his wall. And I agree with him.
Love each other and help each other.
Unity vs Uniformity
Posted on September 14, 2016
Since the 1980s I have been striving to understand our Creator’s holy calendar and live in accordance with the times He hard-wired into Creation. Over the years I have seen a proliferation of calendar systems among those turning to Scripture, as my own understanding has also grown and deepened. Calendar disputes have led to division and strife since the time of the Dead Sea Scrolls. However, I believe that honoring our Creator’s calendar to the best of our ability, should not be something that divides us. God’s people are re-awakening all around the world to His truth, but not everyone is ready, willing, or able to the same degree, or at the same pace. God waited twenty-four years before revealing to Abraham the commandment of circumcision. Don’t be so quick to circumcise your neighbor or condemn him for not being where you are in your walk with God! Let God speak to him in his own time, when he is ready!
Many people call for “unity” but what they really mean is “uniformity”. They claim unity is important to them, but reject everyone who doesn’t agree with their understanding of Scripture. Unity can be achieved even when there is a lack of uniformity. This requires a certain degree of spiritual maturity and humility. It is only human that we get frustrated when others do not see things our way. But we must be humble before the Almighty and ask Him to lead us on our walk with Him. If those who walk alongside us in faith approach Yehovah with the same humility, then it is not for us to judge them. We should be united, not divided, by our love of our heavenly Father and desire to live by His Word.
I got some real insight into unity in 2011, when Keith Johnson and I were down in Egypt shortly after the brutal dictator Hosni Mubarak was overthrown. We had the opportunity to sit down with several Bedouin men in Nuweiba on the shore of the Red Sea, where the Israelites crossed over from slavery into freedom. I asked them what they thought of the overthrow of Mubarak. One young man was nostalgic about the fallen dictator insisting that as bad as he was, at least there was “unity” under his rule. This young Bedouin man had never known the basic freedoms many of us take for granted. He was terrified by the “division” that racked his country. I realized then that political tyranny creates unity at the cost of freedom, just as spiritual tyranny creates unity at the cost of truth and the individual’s relationship of faith with God.
I urge all those who observe our Creator’s times to treat their fellow believers in God’s holy word with love and respect and to embrace them despite their differences.
“What does Yehovah require of you? To do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
Banned From FaceBook
If one is to go and study history, you will learn that the educated and the learned are the first ones in a society to be removed so that the rest of the society can be controlled. Those who protest or point out the failures of the governments are also targeted for removal.
I say this based on the times we are now living in according to the Jubilee Cycles. We are fast approaching that time when the chain of events begins to run with no one to stop it and all we can do is pray and hide.
Last week we wrote you to tell you that our facebook page sightedmoon.com had been put in jail for posting 5 videos from the President of the United States exposing the Democrat lies and the coup they are trying to impose on the American people. I like Trump for the most part so we posted those short videos.
That got us in jail.
Then on Sunday I asked for an appeal. I had gone over every post to see what offence we had made. Not one on the LGBTQ and none on the Muslims. We had a few on sale of our books, the five from the President and a few on the curses in Australia and other news. That was it. That is what got us in jail. The Ukraine video from Glenn Beck I could not post because I was already in jail and I posted it on my personal page.
Then on Monday they removed the entire page and de-listed us.
I have appealed but the cowards at facebook never face you or talk to you in person.
So just like that, almost 11,000 followers will no longer get our views on world events. But if you want to follow us on MEWE you can join the sightedmoon.com group there by going to this link

With the social left of society removing those who do not believe as they do, we continue to urge you to sign up for our weekly News Letter so that it comes directly to your email box.
It is not as though we had not been warning you that this was going to come. We have been expecting it. We just did not expect it already.
We warned you in our article about Freedom of Speech August 17, 2019. We also warned you on June 29, 2019 in our Unity article. And before this we warned you in our Silence of the Lambs article back on April 6, 2019. And now let me share with you another article showing you that your freedom of speech is being taken away from you one step at a time and soon if not already now, you will not be able to say boo about anything.
BY RICHARD PALMER • OCTOBER 8
European Union countries can order Facebook or other social media sites to remove content worldwide, the European Court of Justice (ecj) ruled last Thursday. If one EU country deems something illegal, it can order Facebook to block all equivalent content around the world.
The ruling establishes European national courts as global speech police.
Europe does not have the same tradition of free speech as Britain and America. Many EU countries have restrictions that would never be tolerated under America’s First Amendment. But now they want to control what Americans, and others, say online.
The ruling came after Austrian Green Party member Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek sued Facebook. She wanted posts that called her a “traitor of the people,” among other things, removed from the site.
The European Court of Justice ruled that national courts could force Facebook to take down existing posts and block any “equivalent” new posts. In practice, this will mean social media sites imposing automatic content filters that block you from posting what the ecj called “illegal information.”
But the push to enforce this ruling worldwide is the real power grab.
A Facebook spokesman said the ruling “undermines the long-standing principle that one country does not have the right to impose its laws on speech on another country.”
Thomas Hughes, executive director of Article 19, a free-speech campaign group, said: “This judgment has major implications for online freedom of expression around the world.” He warned, “This would set a dangerous precedent where the courts of one country can control what Internet users in another country can see. This could be open to abuse, particularly by regimes with weak human rights records.”
EU courts could rule that a post must be taken down even if the content is not illegal in other countries.
The ecj noted that policing speech worldwide was a drastic step. Thus, courts must “adopt an approach of self-limitation” (emphasis added). In other words, there is no check on these courts’ powers—no one else to restrain them. The ecj merely calls on the courts to restrain themselves.
The EU generally has far more restrictive hate speech laws than the U.S. has. For example, Austrian courts ruled it hate speech to say that the founder of Islam, Mohammed, is a pedophile. The European Court of Human Rights upheld the ruling last year. You may think describing someone revered by many that way is crass—even if he did marry a six-year-old—but it’s a restriction on speech that would never be tolerated under America’s First Amendment. If this case were to arise on social media, the Austrian court could now force Facebook to take down any posts making that assertion, anywhere in the world.
Many European nations still have, and still enforce, blasphemy laws. In Austria, cartoonists have been successfully prosecuted by Catholics. In Germany, defaming a church or religion “in a manner that is capable of disturbing the public peace” is against the law.
Enforcement of these laws is sporadic. But the laws remain on the books.
More common is the rise of “hate crime.” Increasingly, any statement of Bible truth on the subject of homosexuality or transgender issues is deemed hate speech and banned. Criticism of Islam is often deemed racist and is blocked. The ecj’s ruling could take Europe’s hate crime laws global. Facebook already employs over 1,200 people in Germany tasked with deleting content to comply with Germany’s hate speech laws. Soon they may be blocking material worldwide.
Facebook already enforces similar restrictions itself—a worrying trend in itself. But it is even more worrying when foreign governments attempt to enforce their will on what information can be read around the world.
This is just the latest in a range of European efforts to control what you can say online.
Earlier in the year, the EU passed its new Copyright Directive, which would force all content on social media sites to go through a filter before being posted. European Digital Rights called it a “censorship machine.” Over the next couple years, European nations will have to write their own national laws that enforce the directive.
When the directive was passed, I wrote:
At first, that filtering may just be for copyrighted material. But once the filters are in place, how long before the EU demands the filters be tweaked to filter out “hate speech” and any other speech it doesn’t like? And who trusts the EU to decide what should and should not be allowed?
Now we have the answer. The directive hasn’t even gone into force yet, and the European Court of Justice is demanding that social media filter out hate speech when directed by courts.
Once that law was passed, Europe began working on an even more restrictive directive, known as the Digital Services Act. This act would create a central EU committee that would issue “notice and take down” orders that must be enforced within the hour.
“We can trace worrying content blocking tendencies in Europe,” noted Sebastian Felix Schwemer, a researcher at the University of Copenhagen.
But they’re not content just to block content in Europe.
Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry identified the danger in this trend in the cover article of the July Trumpet: “Germany Is Taking Control of the Internet,” writing:
The European Union is working to gain control of the Internet. It has already made significant progress in this effort. Many people, including some of America’s top business leaders and government officials, are deeply concerned.
Through various pieces of legislation, the EU now has extraordinary influence in the homes of Internet users and within every corporation and government on Earth. The EU is waging a campaign of technological imperialism, and most people don’t even know it!
While a lot of this legislation is created by the EU, the ultimate source of this global effort to undermine the United States’ domination of the tech industry and control of the Internet is Germany.
Germany is the EU’s largest, most powerful and most influential nation. It is using the EU as a tool to stealthily fulfill its own ambitions. Anyone who has followed the European Union knows that nothing significant happens in Brussels without Germany’s sanction and endorsement.
Germany’s ambitions for the Internet should concern everyone, even those who don’t have a computer. The EU’s behavior on this issue exposes the dictatorial nature of this German-dominated entity. Really, we are witnessing the manifestation of the spirit of the Holy Roman Empire in the tech world. The biblically prophesied seventh and final resurrection of this empire wants to control the Internet! …
I know that these American tech companies are far from perfect. I’m not arguing for them to have tyrannical control over the Internet. But when you let a handful of people get that level of control over something as important and powerful as the Internet, it can be very dangerous! Legislation like this can destroy corporations, it could cripple Silicon Valley, and it could destroy national economies!
The Bible forecasts the arrival of yet another dictatorial power rising in Europe and led by the Catholic Church. Mr. Flurry noted that by trying to dominate the Internet, “[t]he German-led EU is behaving the way the Holy Roman Empire has always behaved. Germany is once again seeking to impose its will on the world.”
Mr. Flurry based these forecasts on prophecy in your Bible. The book of Revelation describes an empire that rises up repeatedly in Europe. Revelation 17 describes it as a “beast” that is ridden by a woman, that rises up seven times. In the Bible, this symbolizes an empire that is led by a church. It has ruled in Europe under men like Charlemagne, Napoleon and Hitler. It is a church-state combine tries repeatedly to dominate all it can reach. Revelation 13 describes this same empire trying to enforce its religion, ending freedom of conscience and freedom of worship.
This empire is rising yet again, under the guise of the European Union.
Step by step, the German-led European Union is seizing control of what can be said online. These are early steps down a path that will lead to far more despotic measures.
Many in Europe would like to dismiss what you’re reading as hate speech. And perhaps they’ll use that excuse to ban our message at some point. But it is all provable from the Bible. And it will become increasingly obvious on the news.
To prove what the Bible says about the power rising in Europe, read our free booklet Who or What Is the Prophetic Beast?
Right now you still can speak out. You can share links to our videos and books and encourage people to get the book and learn about the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles. You can do this on all the social platforms. We will soon have a new set of videos that we are currently working on for you to share. If you believe in the message we are sharing then this is how you can help us spread the word. If you do nothing then the left who want to silence us win. It is now up to you to put the word out. Not just this week but each and every week until the end comes. It is up to you. What are you going to do?
As the many things begin to take shape that we have been warning you about, are you still not convinced? Are you still waiting until after 2020 is over to see if what we have said is right or not? It will be too late then, if I am right. What if I am right? If you have to ask that question then you have not proven the Jubilee Cycles. Time is not going to wait for you to catch up. Either you do it now or you just do not do it. End time prophecy is already taking place. Many have no clue and ….. well, those who have proven the Jubilee cycles know. I will leave it at that.
And I just got another message from the NRB on this very same subject.
Here Come the Free Speech Punishers
Members on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee recently suggested that a number of nonprofit groups – including some organizations that are members of NRB – should have their tax-exempt status revoked. The reason? Democrat committee members complain that such groups, primarily conservative or Christian policy-oriented nonprofits, are “hate groups.” They apparently are borrowing from the stunningly flawed and debunked “hate group list” propagated by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Although this approach is not new, it shouldn’t be ignored. Where there is smoke, there will likely be fire. In this case the combustion comes from two serious mistakes about law and the First Amendment. First, punitive calls to remove tax-exempt status from faith-based groups because their Biblical worldviews conflict with the platform of a political party ignores basic facts about tax exemption. Further, coupling that effort with the always-popular “hate” cudgel shows an abject rejection of rights of free speech and free exercise of religion.
As I go to post this News letter this week, I am informed that Paul Begley is under threat from Youtube that all his videos are about to be deleted. That is all I know about that situation. But I share it to show you just how quick the left is coming after us and after you. My videos are on youtube as well and if you want them you need to download them to your own computer and then share them so others have them. Again we warned you about our fb page and now it has happened. We are warning you about our youtube site now in advance.
Super Typhoon Hagibis Turns from the Philippines and Hits Japan
Last Friday Pauline flew to the Philippines to do a scouting mission. She ended up teaching about the Jubilee Cycles while she was there. I will let her explain that hopefully in next weeks News Letter.
Little did she know that barreling down on the Philippines was Typhoon Hagibis. This Typhoon turned north away from the Philippines shortly after Pauline arrived there. It is has now turned into a Super Typhoon, and as some are now calling it a MONSTER CAT 5 with sustained winds of 270 KPH. As you read this News Letter, it is expected to make landfall in central and eastern Japan.
Also this weekend in California, they turned off the power across the state in an effort to prevent wildfires like what they had last year in which many people died. PG & E was sued and then went bankrupt because of the lawsuits. So now every time they have winds and there is a chance a hydro line could be knocked down they are going to turn off the power for the whole region. This will work out well when the Santa Anna Winds come and last for weeks on end. No power no lights no refrigeration of foods and no work.
Winds are dying down. Utility giant PG&E Corp. has begun inspecting lines. And yet an unprecedented blackout that has taken out power to dozens of cities around San Francisco still threatens to leave millions of people in the dark for days.
More than 600,000 homes and businesses remained without electricity across the Bay Area on Thursday, even as the weather improved. PG&E has begun the lengthy process of inspecting power lines, mile by mile, but has yet to say when people can expect to emerge from the largest blackout ever orchestrated to prevent high winds from knocking down electrical lines and igniting wildfires. The economic impact of the event may reach $2.6 billion.
After being forced into bankruptcy from wildfires its equipment caused over the past two years, PG&E is using the massive power cuts in an attempt to prevent another deadly disaster. While San Francisco and most of Silicon Valley have been spared, the extensive reach of the outages in Oakland, San Jose and elsewhere is roiling the area’s economy by disrupting workers, shutting stores and forcing companies and agencies to shell out for costly back-up generators to keep operations limping along.As it grappled with the outages, PG&E got hammered on Wall Street Thursday. Its shares plunged 29% after a judge stripped it of exclusive control over its restructuring. The ruling threatens to puts the company’s fate into the hands of bondholders who are proposing to all but wipe out the stakes of existing shareholders.
What Bloomberg Intelligence Says
“U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Dennis Montali’s extraordinary decision to end PG&E’s exclusive control of its Chapter 11 plan process takes control from the utility.”

Meanwhile, a small blaze broke out south of San Francisco on a hillside beneath PG&E power lines in city of Brisbane. The fire burned about 5 acres and was was roughly 50% contained, city officials said. PG&E shares briefly fell to a near-session low when the blaze was reported but then recovered.
In Oakland, long strips of banks, pharmacies, delis, coffee shops and other businesses were closed. Trucks arrived on Thursday morning to deliver boxes of fresh seafood to restaurants that had nowhere to store them. Wells Fargo had shuttered some branches as of Wednesday, and a few dozen Safeway supermarkets were affected, with the company supplying backup generators and refrigerated trailers upon availability.
In Southern California, Edison International had cut off about 12,900 customers in counties including Los Angeles and Kern. The utility is warning that almost 174,000 customers remain at risk. San Diego’s main utility is also considering cutting service to about 34,000. Altogether, more than 3 million people may eventually be affected, or almost 8% of the state’s population, based on city estimates and the average household size.
Determining just how deep the impact will be is difficult. While PG&E has restored power to about 126,000 customers, the company wasn’t saying Thursday when the rest could expect service back. It instead offered this: “The number of circuit-miles requiring inspection includes nearly 25,000 miles of distribution lines and 2,500 miles of transmission lines, a combined distance measuring longer than a trip around the circumference of the Earth.”
The company issued an “all clear” in parts of Northern California where about 270,000 people have lost power. That means the utility will start inspections and repairs there before restoring service. The company expected “dangerous weather” to continue through parts of the Sierra Foothills and Bay Area until midday Thursday.
The Alameda County Sheriff Department said on Twitter that the county, home to Berkeley and Oakland, was among those that PG&E will start inspecting. “Power not will turn on until inspections are complete,” it said.
Outages could persist into next week as crews walk the lines. Some local officials have warned a shutoff could last seven days.
Parts of Northern California’s East and South Bays lost power late Wednesday as part of a second phase of shutoffs. PG&E turned off service to another 4,000 in parts of Kern County early Thursday. The utility earlier predicted impact to 43,000.
A prolonged blackout will strain the region’s economy, said Michael Wara, director of the Climate and Energy Policy Program at Stanford University. Blackouts lasting hours or a single day close offices and schools, and prompt runs on grocery stores. At five days, cupboards start running bare, diesel for backup generators start selling out and gasoline runs short as stations won’t have power.
Running on Generators
For wineries, the blackout hit at a crucial time: harvest. Michael Haney, executive director of Sonoma County Vintners, said many wineries have either bought or rented backup generators. Some smaller growers have struck agreements to have their grapes stored at other facilities where there’s power.
“Wineries have had to pay out money for backup power,” he said. “The sad thing is some of our smaller wineries can’t afford it.”
The widespread impact angered Californians — and some elected officials. State Senator Scott Wiener, a San Francisco Democrat, called the outage “a completely unacceptable state of affairs.” Governor Gavin Newsom was more measured, saying the blackout was “appropriate under the circumstances,” but added: “No one is happy about it.”
The year 5780 According to Judah
This year on the Jewish calendar at the Feast of Trumpets in September 30, 2019 it has become the year 5780 since the creation. Many people look at this and think that we have 220 years until the 6000 year and then go back to sleep. But is this correct?
Here at sightedmoon.com we are saying that the year is in actuality 5855 and that it changes on Aviv 1 each year according to Exodus 12:2
Exo 12:2 This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you.
At Aviv in 2020 it will be the year 5856. So we are always going to be about 76 years apart in our dating. Why?
This is very misleading to the average person. The Jewish calendar fails to mention that they have removed 76 years from the calendar. This was done in Mathew 1:8 where the names of Ahaziah, who reigned 1 year, and Athaliah who reigned 6, and Jehhoash who reigned 40 and Amaziah who reigned 29, are all missing from the chronology. 76 years in total.
Mat 1:7 And Solomon fathered Rehoboam, and Rehoboam fathered Abijah, and Abijah fathered Asa.
Mat 1:8 And Asa fathered Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat fathered Jehoram, and Jehoram fathered Uzziah.
Mat 1:9 And Uzziah fathered Jotham, and Jotham fathered Ahaz, and Ahaz fathered Hezekiah.
Compare the biblical list with the actual Kings of Judah List below and take note of which ones are missing and which ones are included and then ask why.

What was it that these kings did to anger Yehovah so?
We can read in Duet. 29:20 where Yehovah threatened to blot out the names of those who served other gods. And in Exodus 20:5 it says that the sins of the people will be visited to the 3rd and 4th generations of those who hate Him.
Deu 29:16 (For you know how we have lived in the land of Egypt, and how we came through the nations which you passed.
Deu 29:17 And you have seen their abominations and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them)
Deu 29:18 lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turns away today from Jehovah our God, to go serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that bears gall and wormwood,
Deu 29:19 and it happens when he hears the words of this curse, that he shall bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart, to snatch away the drunken with the thirsty.
Deu 29:20 Jehovah will not be willing to forgive him, but then the anger of Jehovah and His jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie on him, and Jehovah shall blot out his name from under heavens.
Exo 20:4 You shall not make to yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
Exo 20:5 You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them. For I Jehovah your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation of those that hate me,
Exo 20:6 and showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me and keep My commandments.
What wicked King could this be? From the list above we can see that something must have happened to Ahaziah so lets begin with him. When we look at this we can also see how the House of Yehovah fell in to ruin and that Joash was going to restore the house and repair it.
Joash Repairs the Temple
2Ch 24:1 Joash was seven years old when he began to reign. And he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Zibiah of Beer-sheba.
2Ch 24:2 And Joash did the right in the eyes of Jehovah all the days of Jehoiada the priest.
2Ch 24:3 And Jehoiada took two wives for him, and he fathered sons and daughters.
2Ch 24:4 And it happened after this, it had been in the mind of Joash to repair the house of Jehovah.
2Ch 24:5 And he gathered together the priests and the Levites and said to them, Go out to the cities of Judah, and gather silver from all Israel to repair the house of your God from year to year. And see that you hasten the matter. And the Levites did not hasten it.
2Ch 24:6 And the king called for Jehoiada and said to him, Why have you not made the Levites bring in the collection out of Judah and out of Jerusalem, according to Moses the servant of Jehovah, and of the congregation of Israel, for the tabernacle of witness?
2Ch 24:7 For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, have broken up the house of God. And also all the dedicated things of the house of Jehovah they have given to Baals.
2Ch 24:8 And the king commanded, and they made a chest, and set it outside at the gate of the house of Jehovah.
2Ch 24:9 And they gave a call in Judah and in Jerusalem, to bring in to Jehovah the collection that Moses the servant of God laid on Israel in the wilderness.
2Ch 24:10 And all the rulers and all the people rejoiced, and brought in, and threw into the chest until it was finished.
2Ch 24:11 And it happened at the time the chest was brought into the king’s office by the Levites, and when they saw that the silver was abundant, the king’s scribe and the high priest’s officer came and emptied the chest, and took it and carried it to its place again. So they did day by day, and gathered a great amount of silver.
2Ch 24:12 And the king and Jehoiada gave it to those who did the work of the service of the house of Jehovah. And they hired masons and carpenters to repair the house of Jehovah, and also artisans in iron and bronze, to mend the house of Jehovah.
2Ch 24:13 And the workmen worked, and the work was completed by them, and they set the house of God in its proper state and made it strong.
2Ch 24:14 And when they had finished, they brought the rest of the silver before the king and Jehoiada. Of this silver were made vessels for the house of Jehovah, vessels to minister and to offer, and spoons, and vessels of gold and silver. And they continually offered burnt offerings in the house of Jehovah all the days of Jehoiada.
2Ch 24:15 But Jehoiada became old, and was full of days when he died. He was a hundred and thirty years old when he died.
2Ch 24:16 And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God and toward His house.
Take note of what was said in verse 7.
2 Chron 24:7 For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, have broken up the house of God. And also all the dedicated things of the house of Jehovah they have given to Baals.
This was why the people Libnah revolted.
Before we find out who this Athaliah was we have just read how Joash was the one who was a good King and served Yehovah. Now lets turn to 2 Kings 8 and find out what preceded these evil kings, and it turns out that Jehoram was an evil King who produced a lineage of evil kings.
Jehoram Reigns in Judah
2Ki 8:16 And in the fifth year of Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel, Jehoshaphat being then king of Judah, Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah began to reign.
2Ki 8:17 And he was thirty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.
2Ki 8:18 And he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, as the house of Ahab did; for the daughter of Ahab was his wife. And he did evil in the sight of Jehovah.
2Ki 8:19 Yet Jehovah would not destroy Judah for David His servant’s sake, as He promised him to give him a light to his sons forever.
2Ki 8:20 In his days Edom revolted from under the hand of Judah, and made a king over themselves.
2Ki 8:21 And Jehoram went over to Zair, and all the chariots with him. And he rose by night and struck the Edomites who were all around him, and the commanders of the chariots. And the people fled into their tents.
2Ki 8:22 Yet Edom revolted from under the hand of Judah to this day. Then Libnah revolted at the same time.
2Ki 8:23 And the rest of the acts of Jehoram, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Matter of the Days of the Kings of Judah?
2Ki 8:24 And Jehoram slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And Ahaziah his son reigned in his place.
We have just learned that the Edomite revolted from Jewish rule but we also leaned that Libnah also revolted. It was not an Edomite city. Libnah was one of the cities of the Aaronic Preists.
Jos 21:13 And to the sons of Aaron the priest they gave Hebron and its open lands as a city of refuge for the manslayer, and Libnah and its open lands,
Something has happened to cause the Libnah people to revolt. Obviously they objected violently to Jehoram’s desecration of Solomon’s temple. For Joram’s blasphemy, Yehovah judged not only his wife Athaliah, but his son Ahaziah, and grandson Jehash, and great grandson Amazaih.
Ahaziah Reigns in Judah
2Ki 8:25 In the twelfth year of Jehoram the son of Ahab, king of Israel, Ahaziah the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, began to reign.
2Ki 8:26 Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri king of Israel.
2Ki 8:27 And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did evil in the sight of Jehovah, as the house of Ahab, for he was the son-in-law of the house of Ahab.
2Ki 8:28 And he went with Jehoram the son of Ahab to the war against Hazael king of Syria in Ramoth of Gilead. And the Syrians wounded Jehoram.
2Ki 8:29 And King Jehoram went back to be healed in Jezreel from the wounds which the Syrians had given him in Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. And Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to see Jehoram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was sick.
Athaliah is usually considered the daughter of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel of Israel. Athaliah was married to Jehoram of Judah to seal a treaty between the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, and to secure his position Jehoram killed his six brothers. Jehoram became king of Judah in the fifth year of Jehoram of Israel’s reign (2 Kings 8:16). Jehoram of Israel was Athaliah’s brother (or possibly nephew).
Jehoram of Judah reigned for eight years. His father Jehoshaphat and grandfather Asa were devout kings who worshiped Yahweh and walked in his ways. However, Jehoram chose not to follow their example but rejected Yahweh and married Athaliah, the daughter of Ahab in the line of Omri. Jehoram’s rule of Judah was shaky. Edom revolted, and he was forced to acknowledge their independence. A raid by Philistines, Arabs and Ethiopians looted the king’s house, and carried off all of his family except for their youngest son, Ahaziah.
After Jehoram’s death, Ahaziah became king of Judah, and Athaliah was queen mother. Ahaziah reigned for one year from the age of 22 (2 Kings 8:26) and was killed during a state visit to Israel along with Jehoram of Israel. Jehu assassinated them both in Yahweh’s name and became king of Israel. He had Athaliah’s entire extended family in Samaria put to death, ending the Omri dynasty in Israel.
Upon hearing the news of Ahaziah’s death, Athaliah seized the throne of Judah and ordered the execution of all possible claimants to the throne, including the remnant of her Omri dynasty. However, Jehosheba, Ahaziah’s sister, managed to rescue from the purge one of Athaliah’s grandsons with Jehoram of Judah, named Jehoash, who was only one year old. Jehoash was raised in secret by Jehosheba’s husband, a priest named Jehoiada.
As queen, Athaliah used her power to establish the worship of Baal in Judah. Six years later, Athaliah was surprised when Jehoiada revealed that Jehoash lived and proclaimed him king of Judah. She rushed to stop the rebellion, but was captured and executed.
Daughter or sister of Ahab?
Gustave Doré, The Death of Athaliah.
There are several scriptures that, when combined with chronological considerations, have led some scholars to hold that she was Ahab’s sister, not his daughter. The relevant scriptural texts that can be cited to support the brother-sister relationship are the following:
2 Kings 8:26, and its parallel passage 2 Chronicles 22:2, say that Jehoram of Judah married a “daughter” of Omri, Ahab’s father. The Hebrew word “daughter” (bath) can mean daughter, granddaughter, or any female descendant, in the same way that ben can mean son, grandson, or any male descendant. Consequently, some modern versions translate that Athaliah was a “granddaughter” of Omri. But the books of Kings and Chronicles give far more attention to Ahab than to Omri, and so it is notable that in these verses it is not Athaliah’s relationship to Ahab that is stressed, but her relationship to Omri. This would be reasonable if Omri were her father. The immediately following verses also discuss Ahab, again raising the question of why her relationship to Omri is mentioned, instead of to Ahab.
2 Kings 8:27 says that Jehoram of Judah, Athaliah’s husband, was related by marriage (hatan) to the house of Ahab. The word hatan commonly is used to specify a father-in-law or son-in-law relationship. If Jehoram was Ahab’s son-in-law, the expression that would be expected here would be “son-in-law” (or relative by marriage) to Ahab, not to “the house of Ahab.” If Athaliah was Ahab’s sister, not his daughter, then there is an explanation for the additional phrase “house of.”
The support for Athaliah being Ahab’s daughter comes from two verses, 2 Kings 8:18 and its parallel 2 Chronicles 21:6. These verses say that Jehoram of Judah did wickedly “because he married a daughter of Ahab.” This would seem to settle the question in favor of the daughter relationship, with one precaution: the Syriac version of the 2 Chronicles 21:6 says “sister of Ahab” instead of daughter. This textual support for Athaliah being the sister of Ahab is usually regarded as weak enough to justify translating bath in 2 Kings 8:26 and 2 Chronicles 22:2 as “granddaughter,” thus bringing the various passages about Athaliah into harmony: she is presented as Omri’s granddaughter and Ahab’s daughter.
Keep in mind you have two Jehorams here. One the son of Ahab who is wounded and the other the son of Jehosaphat.
Let’s continue to the story so you can see the evil of this time.
Jehu Anointed King of Israel
2Ki 9:1 And Elisha the prophet called one of the sons of the prophets, and said to him, Bind up your loins and take this box of oil in your hand, and go to Ramoth in Gilead.
2Ki 9:2 And you shall go there, and you shall see there Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi. And you shall go in and make him rise up from among his brothers, and take him to an inner room.
2Ki 9:3 And take the box of oil and pour it on his head, and say, So says Jehovah, I have anointed you king over Israel. And you shall open the door, and flee, and shall not wait.
2Ki 9:4 And the young man went, the servant of the prophet, to Ramoth in Gilead.
2Ki 9:5 And he came in, and, behold, the commanders of the army were sitting. And he said, I have an errand to you, commander. And Jehu said, To which of all of us? And he said, To you, commander.
2Ki 9:6 And he arose and went into the house. And he poured the oil on his head and said to him, So says Jehovah, the God of Israel, I have anointed you king over the people of Jehovah, over Israel.
2Ki 9:7 And you shall strike the house of Ahab your master, so that I may avenge the blood of my servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of Jehovah at the hand of Jezebel.
2Ki 9:8 For the whole house of Ahab shall perish. And I will cut off from Ahab everyone that urinates against the wall, both bound and free.
2Ki 9:9 And I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah.
2Ki 9:10 And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in a part of Jezreel, and none shall be there to bury her. And he opened the door and fled.
2Ki 9:11 And Jehu went out to the servants of his lord. And one said to him, Well? Why did this mad man come to you? And he said to them, You know the man and what he had to say.
2Ki 9:12 And they said, It is false. Tell us now! And he said, This and this he spoke to me, saying, So says Jehovah, I have anointed you king over Israel.
2Ki 9:13 And they hurried and each man took his garment and put it under him on the top of the stairs, and blew with trumpets, saying, Jehu is king.
Jehu Assassinates Joram and Ahaziah
2Ki 9:14 And Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi plotted against Jehoram. And Jehoram was keeping watch at Ramoth in Gilead, he and all Israel before Hazael king, of Syria.
2Ki 9:15 And King Jehoram returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds which the Syrians had given him when he fought with Hazael the king of Syria. And Jehu said, If it is your minds, then let no escapee leave to go to tell it in Jezreel.
2Ki 9:16 And Jehu rode in the chariot and went to Jezreel. For Jehoram lay there. And Ahaziah king of Judah had come down to see Jehoram.
2Ki 9:17 And a watchman stood on the tower in Jezreel. And he saw the company of Jehu as he came, and said, I see a company. And Jehoram said, Take a horseman and send to meet them, and let him say, Is it peace?
2Ki 9:18 And the rider on horseback went to meet him and said, So says the king, Is it peace? And Jehu said, What do you have to do with peace? Turn behind me! And the watchman reported, saying, The messenger came to them, but he does not come again.
2Ki 9:19 And he sent a second rider on horseback, who came to them and said, So says the king, Is it peace? And he answered, What do you have to do with peace? Turn behind me!
2Ki 9:20 And the watchman reported, saying, He came up to them, but does not come again. And the driving is like the driving of Jehu the son of Nimshi, for he drives furiously.
2Ki 9:21 And Jehoram said, Make ready. And his chariot was made ready. And Jehoram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah went out, each in his own chariot, and they went out against Jehu, and met him in the portion of Naboth of Jezreel.
2Ki 9:22 And it happened when Jehoram saw Jehu, he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the harlotries of your mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?
2Ki 9:23 And Jehoram turned his hands and fled and said to Ahaziah, Treachery, Ahaziah!
2Ki 9:24 And Jehu drew a bow and struck Jehoram between his arms, and the arrow went out at his heart, and he sank down in his chariot.
2Ki 9:25 And he said to Bidkar his commander, Take him up and throw him in the portion of the field of Naboth of Jezreel. For, remember, you and I rode together after Ahab his father, and Jehovah laid this burden on him.
2Ki 9:26 Surely, yesterday I have seen the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons, says Jehovah, and I will repay you in this portion, says Jehovah. And now, take him and throw him into the portion, according to the Word of Jehovah.
2Ki 9:27 And when Ahaziah the king of Judah saw, he fled by the way of the garden-house. And Jehu followed after him and said, Strike him also in the chariot, at the going up to Gur, that is near Ibleam. And he fled to Megiddo, and died there.
2Ki 9:28 And his servants carried him in a chariot to Jerusalem, and buried him in his tomb with his fathers in the city of David.
2Ki 9:29 And in the eleventh year of Jehoram the son of Ahab, Ahaziah began to reign over Judah.
Jehu Executes Jezebel
2Ki 9:30 And Jehu had come to Jezreel. And Jezebel heard, and had painted her face and adorned her head, and looked out at a window.
2Ki 9:31 And Jehu came to the gate. And she said, Was itpeace to Zimri the slayer of his lord?
2Ki 9:32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is with me? Who? And two or three eunuchs looked out at him.
2Ki 9:33 And he said, Throw her down! And they threw her down. And some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall and on the horses. And he trampled her.
2Ki 9:34 And when he had come in, he ate and drank, and said, Go, now see this cursed woman and bury her. For she is a king’s daughter.
2Ki 9:35 And they went to bury her, but they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of herhands.
2Ki 9:36 And they came again and told him. And he said, This is the Word of Jehovah which He spoke by His servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel.
2Ki 9:37 And the dead body of Jezebel shall be as dung on the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel, so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.
You will notice that King Jehoram of Israel called Joram in the chart above and Jehoram King of Judah and Ahazaih King of Judah all died in 843 BC of the same year.
Now we must read the next chapter in 2 Kings 10 to learn something else.
Jehu Slaughters Ahab’s Descendants
2Ki 10:1 And Ahab had seventy sons in Samaria. And Jehu wrote letters and sent to Samaria to the rulers of Jezreel, to the elders, and to the supporters of Ahab, saying,
2Ki 10:2 And now as soon as this letter comes to you, since your master’s sons are with you, and chariots and horses are with you, also a fortified city and armor,
2Ki 10:3 even look for the best and fittest of your master’s sons, and set him on his father’s throne, and fight for your master’s house.
2Ki 10:4 And they were exceedingly afraid and said, Behold, two kings did not stand before him; how then shall we stand?
2Ki 10:5 And he who was over the house, and he over the city, the elders also, and the guardians, sent to Jehu saying, We are your servants and will do all that you shall say to us; we will not make any king. Do what is good in your eyes.
2Ki 10:6 And he wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, If you are mine, and will listen to my voice, take the heads of the men, your master’s sons, and come to me to Jezreel by this time tomorrow. And the king’s sons, seventy persons, were with the great men of the city who brought them up.
2Ki 10:7 And it happened when the letter came to them, they took the king’s sons and killed them, seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets and sent to him in Jezreel.
2Ki 10:8 And a messenger came and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the king’s sons. And he said, Lay them in two heaps at the entering in of the gate until the morning.
2Ki 10:9 And it happened in the morning, he went out and stood, and said to all the people, You are righteous. Behold, I plotted against my master and killed him. But who killed all these?
2Ki 10:10 Now know that there shall fall to the earth nothing of the Word of Jehovah , which Jehovah spoke concerning the house of Ahab. For Jehovah has done that which He spoke by His servant Elijah.
2Ki 10:11 And Jehu killed all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and his familiar friends, and his priests, until he left him none remaining.
2Ki 10:12 And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria. He was at the shepherds’ shearing-house in the way,
2Ki 10:13 And Jehu met with the brothers of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, Who are you? And they answered, The brothers of Ahaziah. And we are going down to greet the king’s sons and the queen’s sons.
2Ki 10:14 And he said, Take them alive! And they took them alive and killed them at the pit of the shearing-house, forty-two men. And he left not a man of them.
2Ki 10:15 And he left there and found Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him. And he greeted him and said to him, Is your heart right, as my heart is with your heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it is, give your hand. And he gave his hand. And he took him up to him into the chariot.
2Ki 10:16 And he said, Come with me and see my zeal for Jehovah. And they made him ride in his chariot.
2Ki 10:17 And he came to Samaria, and killed all that remained to Ahab in Samaria, until he had destroyed him, according to the saying of Jehovah which He spoke to Elijah.
Jehu Strikes Down the Prophets of Baal
2Ki 10:18 And Jehu gathered all the people together, and said to them, Ahab served Baal a little, but Jehu shall serve him much.
2Ki 10:19 And now call to me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants and all his priests. Let no one be lacking. For I have a great sacrifice to Baal. Whoever shall be lacking, he shall not live. But Jehu was acting with cunning, to the end that he might destroy the worshipers of Baal.
2Ki 10:20 And Jehu said, Call a solemn feast for Baal. And they called it.
2Ki 10:21 And Jehu sent through all Israel. And all the worshipers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left who did not come. And they came into the house of Baal. And the house of Baal was full from one end to another.
2Ki 10:22 And he said to him who was over the robe-room, Bring out robes for all the worshipers of Baal. And he brought them out for them.
2Ki 10:23 And Jehu went, and Jehonadab the son of Rechab, into the house of Baal. And he said to the servants of Baal, Search and look, that there may not be here with you any of the servants of Jehovah, but only the servants of Baal.
2Ki 10:24 And they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings. And Jehu had appointed eighty men outside, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escapes, his life shall be for the life of him.
2Ki 10:25 And it happened when he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, Jehu said to the guard and to the commanders, Go in. Kill them! Do not let any come out! And they struck them with the edge of the sword. And the guard and the commanders threw them out. And they went to the city, to the house of Baal.
2Ki 10:26 And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal and burned them.
2Ki 10:27 And they broke down the image of Baal, and broke down the house of Baal and made it a sewer-house until this day.
Jehu Reigns in Israel
2Ki 10:28 And Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.
2Ki 10:29 Only, Jehu did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, going after them, the golden calves in Bethel and in Dan.
2Ki 10:30 And Jehovah said to him, Jehu, because you have done well in doing the right in My eyes, and have done to the house of Ahab according to all that was in My heart, your sons of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.
2Ki 10:31 But Jehu did not care to walk in the Law of Jehovah, the God of Israel with all his heart, for he did not turn from the sins of Jeroboam, who made Israel to sin.
2Ki 10:32 In those days Jehovah began to cut Israel short. And Hazael struck them in all the border of Israel,
2Ki 10:33 from Jordan toward the rising of the sun, all the land of Gilead, the men of Gad and of Reuben and of Manasseh, from Aroer, by the river Arnon, even Gilead and Bashan.
2Ki 10:34 And the rest of the acts of Jehu and all that he did, and all his might, are they not written in the Book of the Matter of the Days of the Kings of Israel?
2Ki 10:35 And Jehu slept with his fathers. And they buried him in Samaria. And Jehoahaz his son reigned in his place.
2Ki 10:36 And the days that Jehu reigned over Israel and Samaria were twenty-eight years.
Notice what Yehovah says to Jehu about his son until the fourth generation.
2Ki 10:30 And Jehovah said to him, Jehu, because you have done well in doing the right in My eyes, and have done to the house of Ahab according to all that was in My heart, your sons of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.
Yehovah is blessing him unto the 4th generation while at the same time he is about to blott out the names of 4 kings or 4 genreations in the house of Judah. And all of this is taking place at this same time during the time of Elijah.
Now do not foget who this Athaliah is. She is the daughter of Omri and the wife of Jehoram the mother of Ahaziah. Both of who were killed in 843 BC.
Athaliah Reigns in Judah
2Ki 11:1 And Athaliah was the mother of Ahaziah. And when she saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed of the kingdom.
2Ki 11:2 But Jehosheba the daughter of King Jehoram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him from among the king’s sons which were killed. And they hid him from Athaliah in the bedroom, him and his nurse, so that he was not killed.
2Ki 11:3 And he was hidden with her in the house of Jehovah six years. And Athaliah reigned over the land.
Joash Anointed King in Judah
2Ki 11:4 And in the seventh year Jehoiada sent and brought the rulers over hundreds, with the commanders and the guards, and brought them to him into the house of Jehovah. And he made a covenant with them and took an oath from them in the house of Jehovah, and revealed to them the king’s son.
2Ki 11:5 And he commanded them, saying, This is the thing that you shall do. A third part of you who enter in on the sabbath shall be keepers of the watch of the king’s house.
2Ki 11:6 And a third part shall be at the gate of Sur. And a third part at the gate behind the guard. And you shall keep the watch of the house, alternately.
2Ki 11:7 And two parts of you, all who go forth on the sabbath, even they shall keep the watch of the house of Jehovah around the king.
2Ki 11:8 And you shall surround the king, every man with his weapons in his hand. And he who comes inside the ranks, let him be killed. And they shall be with the king as he goes out and as he comes in.
2Ki 11:9 And the rulers of the hundreds did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded. And each man took his men, going in on the sabbath, with those going out on the sabbath, and came to Jehoiada the priest.
2Ki 11:10 And the priest gave King David’s spears and shields, which were in the temple of Jehovah, to the rulers of the hundreds.
2Ki 11:11 And the guard stood, each man with his weapons in his hand, around the king, from the right corner of the temple to the left corner of the temple, by the altar and the temple.
2Ki 11:12 And he brought forth the king’s son, and put the crown and the testimony on him. And they made him king and anointed him, and clapped their hands and said, Let the king live!
2Ki 11:13 And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people into the temple of Jehovah.
2Ki 11:14 And she looked, and behold, the king stood by a pillar as usually was done, and the rulers and the trumpeters were by the king. And all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets. And Athaliah tore her clothes, and cried, Treason! Treason!
2Ki 11:15 And Jehoiada the priest commanded the rulers of the hundreds, those set over the army, and said to them, Take her out between the ranks, and let the one who follows her kill her with the sword. For the priest had said, Let her not be slain in the house of Jehovah.
2Ki 11:16 And they laid hands on her, and she went by the way which the horses came into the king’s house. And she was killed there.
2Ki 11:17 And Jehoiada made a covenant between Jehovah and the king and the people, that they should be the people of Jehovah; also between the king and the people.
2Ki 11:18 And all the people of the land went into the house of Baal and broke it down. They broke his altars and his images completely in pieces. And they killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. And the priest appointed officers over the house of Jehovah.
2Ki 11:19 And he took the rulers over hundreds, and the commanders, and the guard, and all the people of the land. And they brought the king down from the house of Jehovah and came by the way of the gate of the guard to the king’s house. And he sat on the throne of the kings.
2Ki 11:20 And all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was quiet. And they killed Athaliah with the sword besidethe king’s house.
Jehoash Reigns in Judah
2Ki 11:21 Joash was seven years old when he began to reign.
2Ki 12:1 And in the seventh year of Jehu, Joash began to reign. And he reigned in Jerusalem forty years. And his mother’s name was Zibiah of Beer-sheba.
2Ki 12:2 And Joash did the right in the sight of Jehovah all his days in which Jehoiada the priest instructed him.
2Ki 12:3 But the high places were not taken away. The people still sacrificed and burned incense in the high places.
Jehoash Repairs the Temple
2Ki 12:4 And Joash said to the priests, All the silver from things dedicated to God, which is brought into the house of Jehovah, the silver from each man the silver of his valuation, all the silver that comes into any man’s heart to bring to the house of Jehovah,
2Ki 12:5 let the priests take it to themselves, each man from those he knows. And let them repair the breaks in the house, in all places where any break shall be found.
2Ki 12:6 And it happened in the twenty-third year of King Joash, the priests had not repaired the breaks of the house.
2Ki 12:7 Then King Joash called for Jehoiada the priest, and the priests, and said to them, Why are you not repairing the breaks of the house? And now take no silver from those you know, but deliver it for the breaks of the house.
2Ki 12:8 And the priests agreed to take no silver from the people, nor to repair the breaks of the house.
2Ki 12:9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest and bored a hole in its lid. And he set it beside the altar, on the right side as one comes into the house of Jehovah. And the priests who kept the door put in it all the silver brought into the house of Jehovah.
2Ki 12:10 And it happened when they saw that much silver was in the chest, the king’s scribe and the high priest came up. And they bound and counted the silver that was found in the house of Jehovah.
2Ki 12:11 And they gave the silver which was counted into the hands of those who did the work, those overseeing the house of Jehovah. And they laid it out to the carpenters and builders who worked on the house of Jehovah,
2Ki 12:12 and to masons and cutters of stone, and to buy timber and cut stone to repair the breaks of the house of Jehovah, and for all that went forth for the house, to repair it.
2Ki 12:13 Only, there were no bowls of silver, snuffers, basins, trumpets, or any vessels of gold or vessels of silver, made for the house of Jehovah from the silver which wasbrought into the house of Jehovah.
2Ki 12:14 For they gave it to the workmen, and repaired the house of Jehovah with it.
2Ki 12:15 And they did not make an accounting with the men into whose hands they gave the silver to be given to the workmen. For they dealt faithfully.
2Ki 12:16 The trespass silver and sin silver was not brought into the house of Jehovah. It was the priests’.
2Ki 12:17 Then Hazael king of Syria went up and fought against Gath, and took it. And Hazael set his face to go up to Jerusalem.
2Ki 12:18 And Joash king of Judah took all the holy things which Jehoshaphat and Jehoram and Ahaziah, his fathers, kings of Judah, had dedicated, and his own holy things, and all the gold found in the treasures of the house of Jehovah, and in the king’s house, and sent it to Hazael king of Syria. And he went away from Jerusalem.
The Death of Joash
2Ki 12:19 And the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Matters of the Days of the Kings of Judah?
2Ki 12:20 And his servants arose and made a plot. And they killed Joash in the house of Millo, which goes down to Silla.
2Ki 12:21 For Jozachar the son of Shimeath, and Jehozabad the son of Shomer, his servants, struck him, and he died. And they buried him with his fathers in the city of David. And Amaziah his son reigned in his place.
Amaziah Reigns in Judah
2Ki 14:1 In the second year of Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz king of Israel, Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah reigned.
2Ki 14:2 He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
2Ki 14:3 And he did the right in the sight of Jehovah, yet not like David his father. He did according to all things that Joash his father did.
2Ki 14:4 Only, the high places were not taken away. The people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places.
2Ki 14:5 And it happened when the kingdom was confirmed in his hand, he killed his servants who had slain his father the king;
2Ki 14:6 But he did not kill the sons of the servants, according to that which is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, in which Jehovah commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the sons, nor shall the sons be put to death for the fathers, but each shall be put to death for his own sin.
2Ki 14:7 He killed ten thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt, and took Selah by war, and called the name of it Joktheel until this day.
2Ki 14:8 Then Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us look one another in the face.
2Ki 14:9 And Jehoash the king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thistle which was in Lebanon sent to the cedar in Lebanon, saying, Give your daughter to my son for a wife. And a beast of the field in Lebanon passed by and trampled the thistle.
2Ki 14:10 You have indeed stricken Edom, and your heart has lifted you up. Rejoice and stay at home, for why should you meddle to your harm, so that you should fall, you and Judah with you?
2Ki 14:11 But Amaziah would not hear. And Jehoash king of Israel went up. And he and Amaziah king of Judah looked one another in the face at Beth-shemesh, of Judah.
2Ki 14:12 And Judah was beaten before Israel. And every man fled to his tent.
2Ki 14:13 And Jehoash king of Israel took Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Joash the son of Ahaziah, at Beth-shemesh, and he came to Jerusalem and broke down the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim to the Corner Gate, four hundred cubits.
2Ki 14:14 And he took all the gold and silver, and all the vessels which were found in the house of Jehovah, and in the treasures of the king’s house, and hostages, and returned to Samaria.
2Ki 14:15 And the rest of the acts of Jehoash which he did, and his might, and how he fought with Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the Book of the Matters of the Days of the Kings of Israel?
2Ki 14:16 And Jehoash slept with his fathers and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel. And Jeroboam his son reigned in his place.
2Ki 14:17 And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.
2Ki 14:18 And the rest of the acts of Amaziah, are they not written in the Book of the Matters of the Days of the Kings of Judah?
2Ki 14:19 And they made a plot against him at Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish. And they sent after him to Lachish and killed him there.
2Ki 14:20 And they brought him on horses, and he was buried at Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.
2Ki 14:21 And all the people of Judah took Azariah who wassixteen years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah.
2Ki 14:22 He built Elath, and restored it to Judah, after the king slept with his fathers.
This Azariah was also called Uzziah in 2 Kings 15:13 and is the Ozias of Mathew 1:8.
Here are the riegns for each of these 4 kings again.
Ahaziah regned 1 year
Athaliah reaigned 6 years
Joash reigned 40 years
Amaziah reigned 29 years.
Having now shown where the 76 year went missing, the question arises, Are we in the year 5780 as Judah claims or is it really 5855 as shown to us in the Jubilee cycles, leaving us 25 years to the conclusion of the 120th Jubilee cycle?
Was Last Weeks Goat Sacrifice
the Abomination of Daniel
Last weeks NewsLetter inspired one reader to ask the following question. It is a great question and I was going to answer it in the comments section but after I began to write it soon became obvious this was worth doing a complete News Letter on. So here we go.
I am not quite sure that I understood what has happened with that sacrifice. Did it occur at a Holy place? If it did, does that not fulfill Mathew 24/15? Or do we still wait for an abominable sacrifice to take place on the altar of a temple that still does not exist?
When I wrote this article last week about the Sacrifice that was done on the Mount of Olives and how it was an abomination, this thought never entered my mind. That is, that this sacrifice was fulfillment of the Matthew 24:15 prophecy. Interesting question David.
The place this sacrifice took place in, was in the tourist viewing area on the Mount of Olives. Last time I was there it stunk of urine and feces everywhere. As Rico pointed out in his video I had in this article it takes 7 days to make the altar holy. So this was not a Holy place by any means.
Mat 24:15 Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand).
Adam Clarke says this on the Matthew Scripture.
The abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel – This abomination of desolation, St. Luke, (Luk 21:20, Luk 21:21), refers to the Roman army; and this abomination standing in the holy place is the Roman army besieging Jerusalem; this, our Lord says, is what was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, in the ninth and eleventh chapters of his prophecy; and so let every one who reads these prophecies understand them; and in reference to this very event they are understood by the rabbins. The Roman army is called an abomination, for its ensigns and images, which were so to the Jews. Josephus says, (War, b. vi. chap. 6), the Romans brought their ensigns into the temple, and placed them over against the eastern gate, and sacrificed to them there. The Roman army is therefore fitly called the abomination, and the abomination which maketh desolate, as it was to desolate and lay waste Jerusalem; and this army besieging Jerusalem is called by St. Mark, Mar 13:14, standing where it ought not, that is, as in the text here, the holy place; as not only the city, but a considerable compass of ground about it, was deemed holy, and consequently no profane persons should stand on it.
I think this may be partly true but it was not the end when the Messiah was to come. And although the ensigns could be symbols of gods or things of worship, they were not what the prophecy of Daniel was talking about.
So let’s go and read Daniel 9 and 11 to see what is said exactly.
Our book The 2300 Days of Hell covers these four verses in Daniel 9:24-27 in exhaustive detail and I am not going to do so here. But the verses about the abomination are these two.
Dan 9:26 And after sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself. And the people of the ruler who shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. And the end of it shall be with the flood, and ruins are determined, until the end shall be war.
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease, and on a corner of the altar desolating abominations, even until the end. And that which was decreed shall be poured on the desolator.
You all need to be aware of just how hard some people try to interpret this to say what they think it should say and not read it and let it speak to you. The above scripture quote is from the MKJV and I have put in bold those words that have been added that are not there in the original Hebrew. Notice that “of the Altar” Is not in the orignal wording.
Now compare this to some other version of the same verse 27.
(ESV) And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”
(ISV) He will make a binding covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he will pause both the sacrifice and grain offerings. Destructive people will cause desolation on the pinnacle until it is complete and what has been decreed is poured out on the desolator.'”
(JPS) And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease; and upon the wing of detestable things shall be that which causeth appalment; and that until the extermination wholly determined be poured out upon that which causeth appalment.’
(KJV) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
(MKJV) And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease, and on a corner of the altar desolating abominations, even until the end. And that which was decreed shall be poured on the desolator.
(TS2009) “And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering. And on the wing of abominations he shall lay waste, even until the complete end and that which is decreed is poured out on the one who lays waste.”a Footnote: a Mat 24:15.
(YLT) And he hath strengthened a covenant with many—one week, and in the midst of the week he causeth sacrifice and present to cease, and by the wing of abominations he is making desolate, even till the consummation, and that which is determined is poured on the desolate one.’
It is only the MKJV that says this abomination is on the corner of the Altar. So you must go back to the origianl Hebrew and read what it says there.
From H3670; an edge or extremity; specifically (of a bird or army) a wing, (of a garment or bed clothing) a flap, (of the earth) a quarter, (of a building) a pinnacle: – + bird, border, corner, end, feather [-ed], X flying, + (one an-) other, overspreading, X quarters, skirt, X sort, uttermost part, wing ([-ed]).
Just two weeks ago we sent you our notes on our Online Zoom meetings that we held for each of the Holy Days. The teaching on the Day of Atonement we covered the Tallit. If you understood our teaching on the Tallit then this expression makes sense. It is speaking of the Tallit and its edges. The edge of Daniel 9:27 is in reference to the slaughtering and meal offerings at teh Temple and would be the boundaries of the Holy Place which was 2000 cubits from the Temple. That does place it on the Mount Of Olives as this was where the Red Heffer Sacrifice would have been done. But it was not the Mount of Olives where the goat was murdered at the end of Sept in 2019. No, the Red Heffer sacrifice was across from the Temple which we have shown you was in the City of David and that Mount across the Kidron is the Mount of Offence.
This Mount was where Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac. This mount was where Solomon set up all the altars to the false gods for his many wives. This Mount was where Yehshua our Messiah was murdered and buried and rose from the tomb 3 days later. And it was from this Mount of Offence that I read the following words every time I go there as I overlook Jerusalem.
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to her, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you would not!
Now lets read Daniel 11 about the abomination in question is verse 31.
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.
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant his palace tents between the seas in the glorious holy mountain. Yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
We then have this verse in Daniel 12
Dan 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the desolating abomination set up, a thousand two hundred and ninety days shall occur.
I have again highlighted the words that have been added by translators. The word sacrifice is not in the original but the word Daily is.
Now let’s go abck and read verse 31.
Daniel 11:31 tells us that the daily sacrfices will be taken away and they will place the Abomination. Then in Daniel 12 we are told when that abomination would be set up. 1290 days from when the daily sacrifice are taken away in Daniel 11:31.
But we need to read this in context as there are many other things going on at this same time that we must be made aware of.
In verse 30 we are told that the ships of Kittim would come agianst him. We did a whole article on exactly who is Kittim in these last days. I urge you to go and read it. But here is an excerp.
In the Book of Daniel, in the 11th chapter, we find an account of Antiochus Epiphanes IV, a type of the Beast, being attacked by Roman ships from Chittim or Cyprus in 168 BC (Daniel 11:30 ). But prophecy is dual—what has occurred in the past, will yet again occur in the future. Today Kittim is in China, and this prophecy, being dual, refers to them:
“And the ships of Kittim [China] shall come upon him: and he [the Beast] shall be struck, and shall return, and shall have indignation against the holy covenant …” — Daniel 11:30
“And tidings out of the east, and out of the north [Russia] shall trouble him: and he [the Beast] shall come with a great multitude to destroy and slay many.” — Daniel 11:44
A little known prophecy in the Book of Numbers has a similar message:
“And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber.” — Numbers 24:24
Knowing who Kittim is and that they are said to be the ones who will come against the King of the North when he invades the Middle East we must consider recent events and understand.
The USA has pulled out of the Iran Deal. The was made official May 8, 2018.
The Trump administration’s withdrawal from the JCPOA on May 8 reinstates two sets of sanctions.
The first, coming into effect August 7, includes restrictions on:
Iran’s purchase of U.S. currency;
Iran’s trade in gold and other precious metals; and
the sale to Iran of auto parts, commercial passenger aircraft, and related parts and services.
The second set of sanctions, which comes back into force on November 4, restricts sales of oil and petrochemical products from Iran.
The Trump administration has so far rejected requests by foreign governments and companies that would allow them to continue to conduct business with Iran.

U.S. sanctions Chinese oil buyer over alleged Iran violations
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States has sanctioned Chinese state-run energy company Zhuhai Zhenrong Co Ltd for allegedly violating restrictions imposed on Iran’s oil sector, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a speech on Monday.
“We’ve said that we will sanction any sanctionable behavior, and we mean it,” Pompeo said in a speech in Florida in which he announced the move.
It comes amid increased tensions between Iran and the West as well as between the United States and China, which have been engaged in a major trade war.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has stepped up its sanctions against Iran after breaking from a nuclear pact brokered between Tehran and other Western nations under the previous administration of President Barack Obama.
In a later statement, Pompeo said Zhuhai Zhenrong “knowingly engaged in a significant transaction for the purchase or acquisition of crude oil from Iran” after the expiration of a U.S. sanctions waiver covering China on May 2.
He said the sanctions blocked all property and interests in property of Zhuhai Zhenrong in the United States and barred its chief executive, Youmin Li, from entry into the country.
“Any entity considering evading our sanctions should take notice of this action today,” Pompeo said. “It underscores our commitment to enforcement and to holding the Iranian regime accountable.”
China’s embassy in Washington rejected the U.S. stance.
“China firmly opposes the U.S. imposition of unilateral sanctions and so-called ‘long-arm jurisdiction’ on China and other countries invoking its domestic law,” a spokesperson said by email.
“We urge the U.S. to immediately correct its wrongdoing and earnestly respect other parties’ legal rights and interests.”Zhuhai Zhenrong, which specializes mainly in buying Iranian oil and is based in Beijing, was previously sanctioned in 2012 by the Obama administration over its dealings with Iran.
The company became a subsidiary of Macau-based, state-controlled conglomerate Nam Kwong Group in a merger mandated by Beijing in late 2015. reut.rs/2GoN2rN
In a brief statement on its website on Tuesday, Nam Kwong said Zhuhai Zhenrong had been “officially spun off” since Sept. 30, 2018. Nam Kwong had “no equity ties, or any business or legal relations” with the oil trader, it said.
A Nam Kwong spokesman declined to comment further.
Analysts at ClearView Energy Partners said Zhuhai Zhenrong is largely disconnected from the Chinese financial system, which would limit the “contagion” of the sanctions to other entities and banking systems. But they said Washington’s move was another shot across the bow to demonstrate the Trump administration’s stance on Iran.
“We see the shot as being aimed just at China, but also at other potential buyers,” such as Turkey and possibly Russia, which could serve as a middleman for brokering oil from Iran to other countries, ClearView said.
The United States reimposed sanctions on Iran in November after pulling out of the 2015 nuclear accord between Tehran and six world powers.
Last month, the U.S. special representative for Iran, Brian Hook, said Washington would sanction any country that continued to import Iranian oil and warned that it would look at reports of Iranian crude going to China.
According to data from government and trade sources, Asia’s crude oil imports from Iran fell in May to the lowest in at least five years after China and India wound down purchases amid U.S. sanctions, while Japan and South Korea halted imports.
Then on August 4th 2019 comes this news.
Defying US sanctions, China and others take oil From 12 Iranian tankers
The New York Times – China and other countries are receiving oil shipments from a larger number of Iranian tankers than was previously known, defying sanctions imposed by the United States to choke off Tehran’s main source of income, an investigation by The New York Times has found.
The Times examined the movements of more than 70 Iranian tankers since May 2, when the American sanctions took full effect.
Twelve of the tankers loaded oil after May 2 and delivered it to China or the Eastern Mediterranean, where the buyers may have included Syria or Turkey. Only some of those 12 tankers were previously known to have recently delivered Iranian oil, and an analyst said the scale of the shipments documented by The Times investigation is greater than what had been publicly known.
The continued flow of oil underscores the difficulty the Trump administration has had in using sanctions to bring Iranian oil exports to zero after breaking with allies and partners on Iran policy. The Obama administration had worked with China, Russia and three European allies on the 2015 agreement intended to restrict Iran’s ability to pursue a nuclear program. President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the deal and to impose sanctions was opposed by those countries.
“You can’t make these kinds of threats if you can’t operationalize it,” said Richard Nephew, a scholar at Columbia University and a former White House and State Department official who helped enforce Iran sanctions during the Obama administration. President Barack Obama did not have a goal of bringing Iran’s oil exports to zero while pressuring Tehran to negotiate.“It adds up to a decision that makes them look weak and feckless,” he added. “That shows there are limitations to U.S. power. China and other places are prepared to say, ‘No, we’re not going to follow the U.S. lead.’”
The Times reviewed data from MarineTraffic and Refinitiv, two ship-tracking services, as well as satellite imagery from Planet Labs and analysis from shipping and energy experts.
“U.S. sanctions have not stopped Iran from moving oil to the Mediterranean and Asia,” said Noam Raydan, an analyst at ClipperData, which tracks global crude shipments.
Iranian Tankers Are Regularly Docking in China
Both satellite imagery and position data show Iranian tankers sitting in Chinese ports for several hours or days.
It is not illegal under international law to buy and haul Iranian oil or related products. The Trump administration’s oil sanctions, which mainly went into effect last November after the United States pulled out of the Iran nuclear agreement, are unilateral. The administration granted eight governments permission to continue buying Iranian oil despite the sanctions, but ended those exceptions on May 2.
Foreign companies that ignore the sanctions and do business with American companies or banks risk being punished by the United States.
American officials have said that sanctions are aimed at cutting off money to the Iranian government to force leaders there to make political change, transform their foreign policy and offer more concessions on the country’s nuclear and missile programs.
While Iran continues to export oil, the sanctions have had a substantial impact. In April 2018, before Mr. Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal, Iran exported 2.5 million barrels of oil per day. One year later, that figure was at one million. And in June, after the end of the exceptions or waivers, ships in Iranian ports loaded about 500,000 barrels per day, according to Reid I’Anson, an energy economist at Kpler, a company tracking seaborne commodities.
Since the sanctions came into full effect on May 2, low-level hostilities between Iran and the United States in the Persian Gulf have increased, despite attempts by European nations to ramp down tensions and get Iran to comply with the nuclear deal, which it had been doing until it breached limits on nuclear fuel last month.
The State Department said any new purchase of Iranian oil after May 2 would be subject to sanctions. “Our firm policy is to completely zero out purchases of Iranian oil,” it said.
Japan and South Korea, fearful of secondary sanctions imposed by Washington if they do business with Iran, have complied with the American sanctions. Turkish officials said in late May they are halting imports of Iranian oil but do not agree with the American sanctions.
In July, the British marines and port authorities in Gibraltar seized a supertanker that they said was carrying crude oil from Iran to Syria. Though the Europeans do not endorse the American sanctions on Iran, the shipment violated European Union sanctions against Syria.
The Trump administration is starting to intensify sanctions enforcement to try to end the exports to China, which continues to be the largest buyer of Iranian oil. On July 22, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced sanctions against Zhuhai Zhenrong, a Chinese state-owned enterprise, and its top executive, Li Youmin, for “violating U.S. restrictions on Iran’s oil sector.”
“We have a pretty good bead on where these ships are moving around,” Mr. Pompeo told Bloomberg TV on July 25. “Wherever we find violations, we will do our level best to enforce them completely and thoroughly.”
But that does not satisfy some Republican members of Congress who are national security hawks.
“While I’m glad the administration sanctioned an initial round of Chinese actors, it must step up strong enforcement to deter Chinese and other foreign actors from violating U.S. sanctions against Iran,” said Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida. “The Iranian regime has blatantly shipped millions of barrels of oil to China.”
To really tighten the screws on China, the Trump administration would need to punish the People’s Bank of China or other Chinese banks that engage in transactions with the Central Bank of Iran, Mr. Nephew said. The United States could also penalize the energy giant Sinopec, which, like Zhuhai Zhenrong, also imports oil from Iran. But sanctioning the banks or Sinopec would have far-reaching consequences for global trade and deepen the divide between Washington and Beijing.
The two nations are already embroiled in a bitter trade war and at odds over global security issues, and Mr. Trump is eager to reach a trade deal with President Xi Jinping of China.
A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, said on July 19 that the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran was the “root cause of the current tensions” involving Iran and that Washington should “correct its wrongdoing.”
Before the end of the sanctions exceptions on May 2, China had been importing 500,000 barrels of Iranian oil per day. In the past month, China’s imports have dropped to about 360,000 barrels per day, according to Kpler.
Summary of World Events Right Now
Right now we have a number of world events about to take place. The Chess pieces are al in place and we await the trigger.
We have the EU headed by Germany as the King of the North and the Great whore of Revelation. She does not like anything Donald Trump is doing but is not yet able to fight against the US. THis Great Whore is also the King of the North in the Daniel prophecy.
The King of the South is headed by Iran and is currently being sanctioned by the USA as well so are any other nations that deal with Iran. The power of the US dollar has this ability to do this at this time. But that time is fast slipping away. This King of the South also covers most of the Middle East.
Kittim, China is also in trade wars with the US and is blatantly defying the USA by buying Oil from Iran. In fact China has a huge appetite for oil and needs it for its own continued growth. Any threat to its oil supply would be a threat to China or Kittim.
Daniel 8 tells us that the King of the South wil butt at the King of the North who will come against it like a whirlwind. A Blitzkrieg if you will. That word butt in Hebrew means war against the King of the North. When they do invade the Middle East, Kittim will attack them to defend their oil supply. My understanding of this is that this attack from Kittim will happen two times. The first will cause the EU to withdraw. The second time with be when the EU, the Beast comes at those from the North and East and makes away many.
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.
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant his palace tents between theseas in the glorious holy mountain. Yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
It is during this second time that they all meet at the Valley of Har Meggo and you know what happens after that.Or it could be one continuous series of events.
So to answer the question that inspired this News Letter;
Daniel 12:11 says the Abomination is set up 1290 days after the Daily is taken away.
Daniel 11 says they shall remove the daily sacrifice but does not say when this happens. But when ever it happens 1290 days later is when the Abomination is set up.
Understand Daniel 8
Let again look at Daniel 8. I will interject my comment along the way.
Daniel’s Vision of the Ram and the Goat
Dan 8:1 In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first.
Dan 8:2 And in a vision I looked. And it happened when I looked, I was at Shushan the palace, which is in the province of Elam. And in a vision I looked, and I was by the Ulai Canal.
This is current day Iran.
Dan 8:3 Then I lifted up my eyes, and looked. And behold, a ram with two horns stood before the canal having two horns, and the two horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.
Could this be Shia and Sunni Faith represented in the two horns? Iran is currently a Shiite Nation. Alqueda and ISIS were Sunni Faith.
Dan 8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward and northward and southward; so that no beasts could stand before him, nor any that could deliver out of his hand. But he did according to his will, and became great.
Dan 8:5 And as I was watching, behold, a he-goat came from the west, over the face of the all earth, and did not touch the ground. And the he goat had an outstanding horn between his eyes.
Many speculate as to who this Goat is. But you will be told exactly who it is in a few moments.
Dan 8:6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran to him in the fury of his power.
Dan 8:7 And I saw him come close beside the ram, and he was moved with anger against him, and struck the ram and shattered his two horns. And there was no power in the ram to stand before him. But he threw him down to the ground and stamped on him. And none could deliver the ram out of his hand.
The King of teh South is going to be utterly destroyed by the King of the North.
Dan 8:8 Then the he-goat became very great. And when he was strong, the great horn was broken. And in its place came up four outstanding ones towards the four winds of the heavens.
The King of the North will become very great after they win this battel over the King of the South. This is just as we have been explaining to you would happen during the 7 years of plenty that are come upon the EU.
In Josephs Jubilee cycle below are the 7 year of plenty in Green (-1607 BC to -1601 BC) and the 7 years of famine (-1600 BC to -1594 BC) that came upon Egypt in red. -1599 BC is when Joseph Revealed himself to his brothers.
When we compare the Jubilee Cycle above to our own Jubilee Cycle today we can see that the start time in the middle of the 4th Sabbatical cycle matches our year of 2020.
Dan 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which became very great, toward the south and toward the east and toward the bountiful land.
This is where the Anti Christ comes from. This little horn and it becomes great.
Dan 8:10 And it became great, even to the host of heaven. And it made fall some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and trampled them.
The hosts of the stars are the Saints. Again over and over it is the Saints, the brethren and those who are the DNA descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel that are going to be trampled underfoot. When you are dead you turn to dust and are trampled over.
Dan 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself, even to the ruler of the host, and the daily sacrifice was taken away by him, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
Here is the one who takes away the Daily. Again we must determine what that is. It is my view that these are our prayers. The Sacrifices of our lips. But I am opne to other views.
Dan 8:12 And an army was given to him against the daily sacrifice because of transgression, and it cast the truth to the ground. And it worked and succeeded.
Dan 8:13 Then I heard a certain holy one speaking, and another holy one said to that one who spoke, Until when shall the vision last, concerning the daily sacrifice and the transgression that astounds, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled?
These are the Two Witnesses conversing. One is asking the other how long this is going to last. Why does one of the two witnesses know and the other does not? It is because one knows the Chronolgoy of end time event. Watch for that one and support him.
Dan 8:14 And he said to me, For two thousand, three hundred evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary shall be vindicated.
In verse 13 as well as here in verse 14 the word translated as Sanctuary is the word. HEre is what the strongs has for this word.
From H6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstractly sanctity: – consecrated (thing), dedicated (thing), hallowed (thing), holiness, (X most) holy (X day, portion, thing), saint, sanctuary.
The word Qodesh can also be translated as Saint. That it is the Saint that will be trmpled underfoot for 2300 Mornings and Evenings. What you are being told here is that the Holy PEople of YEhovah whether or not they keep Torah will be trampled, killed for 2300 Mornings and Evenings.
Someone recently challenged me on this and so I explained it to them.
I will also do so now for those who want to double check this.
Shavuot 2020 on Torah Calendar is May 30-31. Now add up all the days from May 31 until Sept 13, 2026. There is a leap year in 2024. When you add them up you get the following.
2020 From Shavuot May 31 to Dec 31 is 216 days.
Jan 1 to Dec 31 2021 is 365 Days,
Jan 1 to Dec 31 2022 is 365 Days,
Jan 1 to Dec 31 2023 is 365 Days,
Jan 1 to Dec 31 2024 is 366 Days (Leap Year)
Jan 1 to Dec 31 2025 is 365 Days
Jan 1 to Sept 13 2026 256 (Feast of Trumpets)
The Total is 2298. Add one day for the moon not being seen in 2026 and you have 2299 days. Then if the moon is not seen the month before that would add one more day to the count. 2300 Total.
The Interpretation of the Vision
Dan 8:15 And it happened when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me the form of a man.
Dan 8:16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called and said, Gabriel, make this one understand the vision.
Dan 8:17 So he came near beside my place. And when he came, I was afraid and fell on my face. But he said to me, Understand, O son of man, for the vision is for the time of the end.
Dan 8:18 And as he was speaking with me, I was stunned, on my face toward the ground. But he touched me and set me upright.
Dan 8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make you know what shall happen in the last end of the indignation. For it is for the time appointed for the end.
Dan 8:20 The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.
This is today known as Iran.
Dan 8:21 And the shaggy goat is the king of Greece. And the great horn between his eyes is the first king.
Greece is for the West and the King of the North, the EU. An election to the European Parliament was held between 23 and 26 May 2019, the ninth parliamentary election since the first direct elections in 1979. A total of 751 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) represent more than 512 million people from 28 member states.
On 26 May 2019, the European People’s Party led by Manfred Weber won the most seats in the European Parliament, making Weber the leading candidate to become the next President of the European Commission.
Manfred Weber (born 14 July 1972) is a German politician who has served as Leader of the European People’s Party in the European Parliament since 2014. He has been a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from Germany since 2004. He is a member of the Christian Social Union in Bavaria, part of the European People’s Party.
In the 2003 Bavarian state elections, Weber became the state’s youngest parliamentarian at the age of 29. Currently heading the European People’s Party Group, he is the youngest group leader in the current Parliament as well as the youngest-ever group leader of the EPP. Weber is known as a moderate politician and power broker in EU politics.
On 5 September 2018, Weber declared his intention to run for the position of President of the European Commission and was elected as the Spitzenkandidat of the EPP on 8 November. On May 26, 2019, Weber’s European People’s Party won the most seats in the European Parliament, thus making Weber the lead candidate to become the next President of the European Commission. It was announced on May 28 that the new European Commission President would be picked at a EU summit in June; Weber was not nominated, with Ursula von der Leyen selected instead. 
Ursula Gertrud von der Leyen (German pronunciation: [???zula f?n de??? ?la??n] ( listen); née Albrecht; born 8 October 1958) is a German politician and the President-elect of the European Commission. She served in the federal government of Germany from 2005 to 2019 as the longest-serving member of Angela Merkel’s cabinet. She is a member of the centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU).
Dan 8:22 And as for that being broken, and four stood up in its place; four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in its power.
Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have come to the full, a king, fierce of face, and skilled at intrigues, shall stand up.
Dan 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power. And he shall destroy marvelously, and shall prosper and work, and destroy the mighty and the holy people.
Notice that this says this king is going to destroy the Holy People which is what we have been warning you. It is not the Sanctuary that is going to be trampled but it is the Saints, the Holy People who will be killed and murdered. We believe all of this starts around Shavuot 2020.
Dan 8:25 And also through his understanding, he shall cause deceit to succeed in his hand. And he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many. He also shall stand up against the Ruler of rulers. But he shall be broken without a hand.
Dan 8:26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true. But you shall shut up the vision; for it shall be for many days.
Dan 8:27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick for days. Afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business. And I was amazed at the vision, but there was no understanding.
The 4 Beast Empires and the USA – They are not the Same
If my understanding is correct and the 2300 Days is when the Offerings are stopped and the count to the Abomination being set up is 1290 days later then this will take us from Shavuot 2020 until Chanukah in December 2023. Chanukah begins at Sunset December 7 and goes for 8 days. the 1290th day is December 11.
So what is this abomination that is to be set up? Is it s sacrifice on the Temple Mount by some foolish Jewish wannbes?
We read in revelation about two Beasts in Reve 13. Lets look at the second one first.
The Second Beast
Rev 13:11 And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. And it had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon.
Rev 13:12 And it exercises all the authority of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and those dwelling in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev 13:13 And it does great wonders, so that it makes fire come down from the heaven onto the earth in the sight of men.
Rev 13:14 And it deceives those dwelling on the earth, because of the miracles which were given to it to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth that they should make an image to the beast who had the wound by a sword and lived.
Rev 13:15 And there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might both speak, and might cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Rev 13:16 And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads,
Rev 13:17 even that not any might buy or sell except those having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name.
Rev 13:18 Here is the wisdom. Let him having reason count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. And its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
This Abomination is going to be a statute and it is going to speak and be heard to speak and cause all of us to wear the mark fo the Beast which we have shown is anything that is not the Sabbath or the Holy Days. See our article on the Bismillah. Let me remind you of the Prophecy that Isaac gave to Esau.
Gen 27:38 And Esau said to his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, me also, my father. And Esau lifted up his voice and wept.
Gen 27:39 And Isaac his father answered and said to him, Behold! Your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth and of the dew of heaven from above.
Gen 27:40 And by your sword you shall live, and shall serve your brother. And it shall be when you shall have the dominion, you shall break his yoke from off your neck.
Gen 27:41 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him. And Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand. Then I will kill my brother Jacob.
Adam Clarke says the following;
And – when thou shalt have the dominion – It is here foretold that there was to be a time when the elder was to have dominion and shake off the yoke of the younger. The word ???? tarid, which we translate have dominion, is rather of doubtful meaning, as it may be deduced from three different roots,
??? yarad, to descend, to be brought down or brought low;
??? radah, to obtain rule or have dominion;
and ??? rud, to complain; meaning either that when reduced very low God would magnify his power in their behalf, and deliver them from the yoke of their brethren; or when they should be increased so as to venture to set up a king over them, or when they mourned for their transgressions, God would turn their captivity. The Jerusalem Targum gives the words the following turn: “When the sons of Jacob attend to the law and observe the precepts, they shall impose the yoke of servitude upon thy neck; but when they shall turn away themselves from studying the law and neglect the precepts, thou shalt break off the yoke of servitude from thy neck.”
And here is what Strongs says;
A primitive root; to tramp about, that is, ramble (free or disconsolate): – have the dominion, be lord, mourn, rule.
When Esau has dominion they are going to trample the Saints. The Bismilah of Esau and Ishmael, the mark they wear on their arms and foreheads are the Hunters that are now amassing all around us and amongst us.
Again let us go back to Matthew 24 and learn a bit more about this time and I am focusing now on the part that even the Saint can be deceived.
The Abomination of Desolation
Mat 24:15 Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand).
Mat 24:16 Then let those in Judea flee into the mountains.
Mat 24:17 Let him on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house;
Mat 24:18 nor let him in the field turn back to take his clothes.
Mat 24:19 And woe to those who are with child, and to those who give suck in those days!
Mat 24:20 But pray that your flight is not in the winter, nor on the sabbath day;
Ther are only two season in the Bible winter and summer. Winter is from the Feast of Trumpets until Aviv 1.
Mat 24:21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world to this time; no, nor ever shall be.
Mat 24:22 And unless those days should be shortened, no flesh would be saved. But for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened.
Mat 24:23 Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, There! Do not believe it.
Mat 24:24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it werepossible, they would deceive even the elect.
Mat 24:25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.
My question to each of you is How is it possible for even the Elect of Yehovah to be deceived into following the wrong messiah?
Now let me address the first beast.
The First Beast
Rev 13:1 And I stood on the sand of the sea, and I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns. And on its horns were ten crowns, and on its heads was the name of blasphemy.
Rev 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and its feet like those of a bear, and its mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him its power and its seat and great authority.
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of its heads as having been slain to death, and its deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marveled after the beast.
Rev 13:4 And they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast. And they worshiped the beast, saying, Who islike the beast? Who is able to make war with it?
Rev 13:5 And a mouth speaking great things was given to it, and blasphemies. And authority was given to it to continue forty-two months.
Rev 13:6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemy toward God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, and those dwelling in Heaven.
Rev 13:7 And it was given to it to war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given to it over every tribe and tongue and nation.
Rev 13:8 And all dwelling on the earth will worship it, those whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain, from the foundation of the world.
Rev 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
Rev 13:10 He who leads into captivity will go into captivity. If anyone will kill with the sword, he must be killed by a sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Here in Rev 13 we are told that the Beast power will set up an image and then give it breath so that it can speak. So it is not a sacrifice that is the abomination. It is the Statute.
For years I have heard brethren say that the leader of the strongest Israelite nation today, The USA is the Beast power and end time Babylon of Revelation. I have heard all sorts of concoctions or theology to back it up. And in order to hold to this position they must deny the history of the Ten Tribes as I have laid out in the 2300 Days of Hell and the Ten Tribes Teachings. They say all those facts are false. They just dismiss them because it messes with their theology. They have fallen for this lie and are not willing to do the work in study to climb out of that stink hole they are in.
Other claim that Prince Charles is the Anti Christ and then get into a whole host of conspiracy teachings and the Rothschild propaganda teachings. For years each of the Presidents of the USA has been the Anti-Christ. Clinton, the Bush and then Obama and now they are saying Trump is the Anti Christ. They all use the scriptures in Rev 13 that I have just shown you to prove they are right. Maybe even some of you think that Trump is the Anti Christ. But President Trump is not the Antichrist and those who think so are in danger of being deceived as the elcet are warned in Matthew.
Each of you must do your own homework. But look first at Daniel 2.
Daniel Interprets the Dream
Dan 2:31 You, O king, were seeing. And, behold! A great image! That great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you. And its form was dreadful.
Dan 2:32 This image’s head was of fine gold; his breast and his arms were of silver; his belly and his thighs were of bronze;
Dan 2:33 his legs were of iron; his feet were part of iron and part of clay.
Dan 2:34 You watched until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image upon its feet which were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces.
Dan 2:35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were broken to pieces together. And they became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors. And the wind carried them away, so that no place was found for them. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
Dan 2:36 This is the dream. And we will tell its meaning before the king.
Dan 2:37 You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of Heaven has given you a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
Dan 2:38 And wherever the sons of men, the beasts of the field, and the birds of the heavens live, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold.
Babylon is the head of Gold
Dan 2:39 And after you shall arise another kingdom lower than you, and another third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth.
He has skipped the Arms of Silver who are the Persian Empire. The Bronze one is the Greek Empire.
Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron. Since iron crushes and smashes all things; and as the iron that shatters all these, it will crush and shatter.
This is the 4th Empire. There is no fifth Empire. There are only 4. And this fourth one is the Holy Roman Empire which was come down to our time now. It is the EU the Western Catholic Faith and the Eastern Orthodox Faith. The two legs.
Dan 2:41 And as to that which you saw: the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay and part of iron; the kingdom shall be divided. But there shall be in it the strength of the iron, because you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.
The IRon represents the German influence on the Empire with many of the leaders of the Holy Roman Empire being German. The word mixed is very interesting as the Hebrew word here is
1) to mix, join together
1a) (Pael) mixed (participle)
1b) (Ithpael) mixed (participle)
It is the word Arab. So we have a clue above about Esau having dominion in the last days and now we have this clue about the mixing of clay and iron and the world Mix is Arab and this is for the last days. And the consider how in resent years how millions of Arab walked up and settled in Germany and the EU and then read the rest here about how will they mix. We all know the Islam does not mix with any other group of people unless they have dominated it or have had dominion over it. Those who do not submit are trampled underfoot. Convert or die.
Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle.
Dan 2:43 And as you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mix themselves with the seed of men. But they shall not cling to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other peoples, but it shall crush and destroy all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
Dan 2:45 Because you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it crushes the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what shall occur after this. And the dream is certain, and its meaning is sure.
Daniel now has laid out each of the world ruling Empires that was to come. He did not mention Assyia as they had already come and been defeated by Babylon which is where he begins. And if you look at the maps of each of these empires they always overlap each other and then expand to take in more land and more people.
The Daniel had a dream about some empire and this is what we know of them. They are the same empire as the great image in the Dream above.
Daniel’s Vision of the Four Beasts
Dan 7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head on his bed. Then he wrote the dream and gave the sum of the matters.
Dan 7:2 Daniel spoke and said, In my vision by night I was looking: and behold, the four winds of the heavens were stirring up the Great Sea.
Dan 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, different from one another.
Again there is only four empires that we are looking at. There are no others.
Dan 7:4 The first was like a lion and had eagle’s wings. I watched until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on its feet like a man. And a man’s heart was given to it.
Dan 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like a bear. And it raised itself up on one side, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said this to it: Arise, eat up much flesh.
Dan 7:6 After this I saw, and lo, another, like a leopard, which had four wings of a bird on its back. The beast also hadfour heads; and rulership was given to it.
Dan 7:7 After this I looked in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, frightening and terrifying, and very strong. And it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the rest with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts before it; and it had ten horns.
Dan 7:8 I was thinking about the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom three of the first horns were uprooted. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
The Ancient of Days Reigns
Dan 7:9 I watched until the thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days sat, whose robe was white as snow, and the hair of His head like the pure wool. His throne was like flames of fire, and His wheels like burning fire.
Dan 7:10 A stream of fire went out and came out from before Him. A thousand thousands served Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The judgment was set, and the books were opened.
Dan 7:11 Then I was looking because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke. I watched until the beast was slain, and his body was destroyed and given to the burning flame.
This is at the end of the 7th Millennium when Satan is then thrown into the lake of fire.
Dan 7:12 And the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away. Yet their lives were made longer for a season and time.
The Son of Man Is Given Dominion
Dan 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him.
Dan 7:14 And dominion and glory was given Him, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations and languages, should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Daniel’s Vision Interpreted
Dan 7:15 I Daniel was distressed in my spirit in its body, and the visions of my head troubled me.
Dan 7:16 And I came near one of those who stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the meaning of the things.
Dan 7:17 These four great beasts are four kings; they shall arise out of the earth.
These are the four Empires. The same four empire of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.
Dan 7:18 But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.
Dan 7:19 Then I wanted to know the truth of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, very frightening, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of bronze; who devoured, broke in pieces, and stamped the rest with his feet;
These are the feet of Miry Clay in the image here.
Note that this word Stamped is
(Chaldee); corresponding to H1854; to crumble or (transitively) crush: – break to pieces.
A primitive root (compare H1915); to crush (or intransitively) crumble: – beat in pieces (small), bruise, make dust, (into) X powder, (be, very) small, stamp (small).
A primitive root (compare H1854); to crush with the foot: – tread down.
It is this fourth empire that is going have dominon and trample underfoot the Saints.
You also need to read our article on The Breaker who Breaks in Pieces and how we show you this Hebrew play on words that takes you right back to Cush who is the one who deceived the nations in the beginning.
Dan 7:20 and of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth speaking very great things, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.
Dan 7:21 I watched, and that horn made war with the saints and overcame them
Again it is the Saints that are being attacked and killed. This is you and I.
Dan 7:22 until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High. And the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Dan 7:23 And he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, and shall trample it and crush it.
Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise. And another shall arise after them. And he shall be different from the first, and he shall humble three kings.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and plot to change times and laws. And they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and one-half time.
Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his rulership, to cut off and to destroy until the end.
Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and rulership, and the greatness of the kingdom under all the heavens, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. And all kingdoms shall serve and obey Him.
Dan 7:28 Here is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my thoughts troubled me much, and my face changed on me. But I kept the matter in my heart.
President Trump as the Antic Christ-False!
Now that I have shown you that the Beast System is the EU and an extension of the Holy Roman Empire and that it will take over all those lands that once belonged to all the empires when the King of the North invades the King of the South, let me show you what some are saying and what could also lead those who are not strong in their studies into deception.
They are saying that this.
They say Revelation 13 is speaking about President Trump.
Rev 13:4 And they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast. And they worshiped the beast, saying, Who islike the beast? Who is able to make war with it?
Rev 13:5 And a mouth speaking great things was given to it, and blasphemies. And authority was given to it to continue forty-two months.
Rev 13:6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemy toward God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, and those dwelling in Heaven.
I have never heard the President blaspheme God or heaven. IN fact the President is very much in favour of Christians and Jews. They say there is none like the USA so it must be the Beast because it fits Rev 13:4 And then they do this and this is why I am sharing this with you so that you are forewarned. Do not be deceived.
They claim the 42 months is all the Authority or the time that is allowed for President Trump to be King. After that He is done.
He was elected and took office January 20, 2017 as the 45th President of the USA. they then count 42 months from this time and they come to….
If you count Jan 2017 as one month then you have 12, for 2017 and 12 for 2018 and 12 more for 2019. that is 36 in total. 6 more months is 42 months in total which is June 20, 2020.
We have been saying that the 2300 Days of Hell begins at Shavuot in May 31 2020. This is one week before a lunar eclipse on June 6 which is the prophetic week that ends the covenant made with many that started June 6-16 1972 in Stockholm Sweden with the UNEP.
If the President is removed from office at this time by impeachment or some other means that I will not even mention, then many could fall for this false teaching that the USA is the Beast Power and is being taken down as they should be. And cheering for the wrong team. The team that is about to destroy them and us. That team is the EU led by Satan.
If possible even the Elect could be deceived. Do not let that be one of you.
