Sukkoth 2018

The dates for Sukkoth 2018 are  September 24th thru September 30th in the Hebrew Year 5779.

Sukkoth begins at sunset Sunday, September 23rd and ends at sunset Sunday, September 30th.

The Moedim are Dress Rehearsals for prophetic events. The fall moedim have yet to be fulfilled. Sukkoth is the third and final of the fall moedim, and will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns to set up his millennial reign. Praise Yahweh for his promise to fulfill this prophecy.

Break out the sukkahs, it’s time to go camping for a week. It is time to give Yahweh thanks for all of the harvests.

This is a great time for the children – building the sukkah is just like building and decorating a fort. All meals are eaten in the sukkah, the whole family sleeps in the sukkah, and it is one of the most joyous, festive celebrations of the year. It is not until the culmination of the summer that all of the crops are harvested and Sukkoth celebrates the final gathering of the fruit and vine crops as one gives thanksgiving to Yahweh for His sustenance throughout the rest of the year.

Sukkoth today celebrates a return to Jerusalem to celebrate Sabbath and will find its final fulfillment when Yeshua returns to Earth, gathers all nations together, and sets up His Millennial Reign, a temporary period of one thousand years before eternity begins.

Yom Kippurim 2018

The date for Yom Kippurim 2018 is September 19th, 2017, in the Hebrew Year 5779.

Yom Kippurim begins at sunset tomorrow, Tuesday, September 18th and ends at sunset Wednesday, September 19th.

The Moedim are Dress Rehearsals for prophetic events. The fall moedim have yet to be fulfilled. Yom Kippurim is the second of the fall moedim, and will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns to judge the nations. Praise Yahweh for his promise to fulfill this prophecy.

The day of atonements. Yes, I said atonements, not atonement!

Under the Older Covenant, this day is the day the High Priest (Kohen Gadol) would make atonement for the holy sanctuary, for the Tabernacle, for the altar, for the priests, and for all the people (Leviticus 16:33). This is the day upon which the Book of Life was sealed for the following year.

Under the Newer Covenant, Yeshua entered has entered the Holy of Holies in the Heavenly Temple, cleansed the altar with his own blood, made atonement for all sin, and now sits at the right hand of Yahweh. For the Bride of Yeshua, there is no longer any condemnation (Romans 8:1) – no need for a yearly atonement.

Numbers in Revelation

So, are you still convinced that Yahweh’s wrath doesn’t start when Yeshua opens the first seal? And do you still think that the first half of the Tribulation Period is just a cake walk? And do you really want to stick around to witness the seals being broken, rather than be raptured up to meet Yeshua in the clouds? Then perhaps a little bit of simple math will change your mind.

The Seals are Broken
Revelation 6:3-4When the second seal is broken, a red horse goes out and its rider is given the power to take peace away from the earth and to make people slaughter each other.
Yeshua breaks the second seal and the people of the earth start slaughtering each other. Did you catch that – slaughter. The Greek word translated slaughter, sphazo [σφάζω G4969], indicates a bloodbath, a holocaust of unimaginable proportions. The people of the earth do not just murder, do not just kill each other, but butcher and massacre each other.

Revelation 6:5-6When the third seal is broken, a black horse goes out and it takes a whole day to earn enough money to buy just enough bread for one, perhaps two persons.
Yeshua breaks the third seal and the beginnings of famine start to make its presence known. Short rations almost always leads to the death of many. Starvation is no fun way to die.

Revelation 6:7-8When the fourth seal is broken, a pale horse goes forth and out come Thanatos and Hades. Famine, pestilence, wild animals follow behind. One fourth of the people dwelling on the earth are killed.
Yeshua breaks the fourth seal and famine becomes widespread, leading to pestilence and a whole slew of very hungry animals, who now decide that humans are fit to eat, not just take a small bite out of the leg! One fourth, or twenty-five percent are killed.

The Early Numbers
The estimated population of earth dwellers is a tad over seven and one-half billion, – let’s say that’s 7,600,000,000. Divide that by four and one gets a figure of about 1,900,000,000, or 1.9 Billion – billion with a B. That is a lot of dead bodies, just in the first half of the tribulation period.

Those numbers are too big for me – I can’t compute.
Okay, let’s find a smaller number – say a number for just one year’s time. To do that we will divide that 1.9 billion figure by the number of years in the first half of the Tribulation Period – three and one-half. Get ready;
• 1,900,000,000 divided by 3.5 equals just over 542 million people (542,857,143).

Almost five and one-half million deaths on average each year. Even if we reduce the number by 600,000,000 people (who get raptured before the tribulation), that would still amount to five hundred million (5000,000,000) deaths on average each year.

The Later Numbers
Revelation 9:15The four angels are released to kill one-third of the people.
And then the shofars start to blow, and another third of the remaining population is killed. So, let’s again do the math:
• Remember common denominators? 1/4 + 1/3 = 3/12 + 4/12. Which is 7/12. Seven twelfths of seven and one-half billion is just over 4.4 billion people (4,433,000,000).

Conclusions
The first three and one-half years of the Tribulation Period are going to be devastating. The death toll alone may exceed five-hundred million people each year just by the breaking of the seals. Add in the shofars, and well over one-half of the current inhabitants of the earth end up dead. Still want to hang around to witness the seals being broken, rather than be raptured up to meet Yeshua in the clouds? Not me . . . . . .

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Yom Teruah 2018

The dates for Yom Teruah 2018 are  September 10th and 11th, beginning the New Hebrew Year 5779.

Yom Teruah begins at sunset, Sunday, September 9th and ends at sunset Tuesday, September 11th. (NOTE: Two days are listed, as only when two witnesses have seen the first light of the new moon can the actual Yom Teruah moed begin.)

The Moedim are Dress Rehearsals for prophetic events. The fall moedim have yet to be fulfilled. Yom Teruah is the first of the fall moedim, and will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns to resurrect the dead and rapture his bride. Praise Yahweh and may this Yom Teruah be the day for fulfilling this prophecy.

Break out the shofars! Blow the Shofars. Blow them over 100 times using four different types of blasts. The fourth and final blast, the Tekiah Ha’Gâdôl, is known to the Jews as the “Last Trump”. It is at the last trump that Paul tells us that we are changed from mortal to immortal, from corrupt to incorrupt (1 Corinthians 15:52)!

Yom Teruah announces Yeshua’s wedding day, His coronation as King, and the Day of the Sounding of the Shofar. The blowing of the shofars declares the solemn warning that the gates of heaven are open and that the Court in Heaven is in session. The blowing of the shofars announces the day of the resurrection of the righteous dead and the taking up of the living righteous – the wakening blast!

For Good or For Evil

The internet is an amazing tool. No one doubts this. But how is it being used today?

The Good
Proverbs 22:1 – “Rather than wealth, choose a good reputation.”
Job 34:4 – “Let us choose what is right . . . what is good.”
At it’s inception the internet, or World Wide Web, was a tool that allowed researchers to compare and share data. This was a good thing, and led to many advances in science and understanding. It then expanded to allow businesses to interact with other businesses and partners. This was also a good thing and led to reduced expenditures for those businesses, as well as the expansion of numerous new enterprises. Finally it expanded to allow and individuals to quickly interact with each other. This, too, was a good thing and allowed people throughout the world to keep in touch, share stories, make new friends.

The Evil
Genesis 44:4 – “Why have you repaid good with evil?”
But it did not last long. Evil people with evil intentions invaded. Today, this once pristine arena is rapidly becoming one of the platforms through which the One World Government will control the people of the world. It is being filled with lies, deceptions, and sinful abominations.

The Impact
Psalm 37: 27 –“If you turn from evil and do good, you will live safely forever.”
Isaiah 48:20 – “Leave Babylon . . . declare this with a shout of joy, proclaim it, send it out to the end of the earth.”
The impact to conservative, truth telling, God fearing individuals, corporations, and news outlets has already been financially draining. These sites are regularly demonetized. Shadow banning, outright banning, and refusal to allow access or blocking are rampant and will only get more noticeable and substantial. What then is the true church to do?

In short – shepherds, get your flock out of Babylon! The Bible sets forth the appropriate process for witnessing:
• Seek Yahweh and his kingdom – FIRST
• Witness to your immediate family – Second
• Take the Gospel to the community – Third

Yeshua’s ministry was always person to person. Likewise, the apostle’s ministry was also always person to person. This person to person approach changed the world. None of the above people had the internet. They didn’t have telephones, telegraph, radio, television, or stupid phones [which the global system deceptively calls “smart phones”]. They did, however, have “snail” mail and used it to great advantage.

Conclusions
2 Timothy 3:13 – “Evil people and charlatans will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived.”
The internet, though initially a tool used for good, has increasingly become a force for evil. The impact on individuals and corporations, especially those who believe in Truth, not lies and deception, is becoming oppressive and financially draining. It is time to get back to basics: one on one, person to person ministry. This has always been the best way of reaching the entire world, and modern technology may be the worst. Get out of Babylon. Get out of the Global System.

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Deception to Salvation

Recently I was asked by a former Atheist if I thought Yahweh would have used deception to bring said individual to salvation in Yeshua, boldly stating that this would never have happened to them! In fact, this person was greatly incensed that they could be deceived in any way, shape, or manner.

Getting the Job Done (Without Salvation)
1 Kings 22:22, 2 Chronicles 18:21 – “I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.”
In 1st Kings and 2nd Chronicles we get a glimpse into the divine council. Yahweh wanted King Ahab to go up to his death at Ramoth-Gilead, and asked those present, “Who will entice him to do so?” Several answers as to how to do this were given, and finally a spirit stood up and said “I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.” Hmmm. Ahab refuses to listen to a true prophet, Micaiah, but would rather believe the deceptions of his own prophets, and goes to his death. No salvation here!

Numbers 22:12 – “Yahweh said to Balaam, ‘You must not go with them nor curse the people, for they are blessed’.”
Balak, King of the Moabites, was thoroughly deceived into believing that money would convince Balaam to come and curse the Israelites, despite Yahweh’s objections. And guess what – Balaam was finally bribed with enough money to go, with, he thought, Yahweh’s blessing. But this angered Yahweh and so he stood in front of Balaam’s donkey. Balaam thought (again falsely) that the donkey was playing games with him. Not so. Balaam is eventually released to go to Moab, but three times Balak is deceived into believing that sacrifices would change Yahweh’s blessings to curses. The deceived simply will not listen. Not much salvation here, either.

Getting the Job Done (With Salvation)
2 Samuel 12:1 – “Yahweh sent Nathan to David. He came to him and said to him, ‘There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor’.”
The prophet Nathan is sent to King David with a message about a two men – a rich man and a poor man. His message: the rich man takes the poor man’s lamb and feeds it to a traveler, rather than feeding the traveler one of his own. David is enraged and declares that the rich man deserved to die! Nathan then reveals the deception – telling David that he is that rich man. David repents and his sins are forgiven. Those who belong to Yahweh listen, repent, and are saved.

Conclusions
Deuteronomy 13:3 – “You are not to listen to what [a deceiving] prophet or dreamer says. For Yahweh your God is testing you, in order to find out whether you really do love Yahweh your God with all your heart and being.”
Yahweh has, can, and does use deception to accomplish his goals. There are many living among us that cannot hear the truth no matter how plain the truth may be stated. But they will and do listen to deceptions and lies. Those deceptions rarely result in repentance and salvation, but Yahweh can indeed use such methods to bring someone to a closer relationship with himself, Yeshua, and the Ruach Ha’Kodesh. The former Atheist is just one example. I am another.

Ahab refused to listen and Yahweh’s plan to send him to his death was accomplished. Balak also refused to listen and Yahweh’s plan to bless the Children of Israel was realized. David, however, did listen, did repent, and was forgiven. Scripture fully attests that he has salvation. Which person will you be?

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

The Rapture-A Pregnant Pause

Matthew 27:52 – “Also the graves were opened, and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.”

There are several examples in scripture of the dead being raised. 1 Kings 17:22 tells us that “Yahweh answered Elijah’s prayer; and the boy’s breath returned to him and he lived.” Similarly, in Luke 7:12-14 Yeshua raises the only son of a widow who had died, saying: “Young man, I say to you, arise.” John 11:38-44 tells us of Yeshua raising of Lazarus, who had been dead for four days, simply saying: “Lazarus, come out!” We are not told, however, how long these resurrected people remained alive. Scripture is silent on this topic.

That Ain’t No Zombie
Matthew 27:52-53 – “Also the graves were opened, and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life; and after Yeshua rose, they came out of the graves and went into the holy city, where many people saw them.”

Most interesting are the holy ones who were raised to life at the instant of Yeshua’s death. After Yeshua is resurrected, these people came out of the graves, went into the holy city, and were seen by many people (Matthew 27:53). No doubt about it, while in Yerushalayim, they witnessed to the many who saw them. These holy ones were living breathing human beings, not zombies! Again, scripture does not tell us how long they remained alive, nor does it tell us whether they died again or were taken up to heaven.

I believe that these people, the holy ones, were raptured, or caught up into the clouds, at the same time Yeshua was caught up, becoming a firstfruits offering of the resurrected to Yahweh his father, for scripture tells us that “When he ascended on high he led a host of captives” (Ephesians 4:8).

A Pregnant Pause
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 – “Those who died united with Yeshua will be the first to rise; then we who are left still alive will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet Yeshua in the air.”
Isaiah 61:1-2 – “The Spirit of Yahweh Elohim is upon me, because Yahweh has anointed me to announce good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted; to proclaim freedom to the captives, to let out into light those bound in the dark; to proclaim the year of the favor of Yahweh and the day of vengeance of our God.”

Just as there has been a 2000 year pause between the first and second parts of Isaiah 61:1-2, and at least a forty day pause between the holy ones being resurrected and their probable rapture along with Yeshua, perhaps there will be another “pregnant pause” between the resurrection of those in Yeshua and the rapture of both those people and the people who are still alive at that time! (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

I see the sequence of events as follows:

  • Yeshua descends in a cloud with a shout, the voice of an angel, and the sound of a shofar (1 Thessalonians 4),
  • The dead in Yeshua are raised and instantly given their immortal bodies (1 Corinthians 15),),
  • These people spend time witnessing to friends, family, and neighbors who are not yet saved, just as the resurrected holy ones did after Yeshua’s resurrection,),
  • The living, after this period of witnessing, are instantly given their immortal bodies (1 Corinthians 15),),
  • The living people are gathered together and rise to meet both the resurrected people and Yeshua in the clouds, while those left behind watch intently (1 Thessalonians 4),),
  • The two witnesses eventually appear to give witness to Yeshua and the Rapture (Revelation 11).),

Conclusions
The “gone in an instant” image makes for great reading, for simply good fiction. This image, I believe, is not supported by scripture. The Rapture patterns clearly show that it will be a visible event, that it will take a moment or two in time from beginning to end, and that it will be clearly able to be watched as it transpires. It is only the change from mortal to immortal that scripture describes as instantaneous in nature, immediately followed by The Rapture. Perhaps there is yet one more pregnant pause to be witnessed!

Final Thought
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew Prophets. The day is coming when Yahweh will show his strength on the mountains of Israel. What is prophesied will come to pass, what is foretold will be made known. Time is short – Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
