Pesach 2018

The date for Pesach 2018 is Saturday, March 31st and the dates for Chag Ha’Matzoh are April 1st thru April 7th, 2018, in the Hebrew Year 5778.  The date for Reishit Katzir is April 3rd, in the Hebrew Year 5778.

Pesach begins at sunset tomorrow, Friday, March 30 and Chag Ha’Matzoh ends at sunset Saturday, April 7.

The Moedim are Dress Rehearsals for prophetic events. Pesach, Chag Ha’Matzoh, and Reishit Katzir have all been fulfilled in the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua. Praise Yahweh for fulfilling prophecy.

The festival of Pesach includes the day of Pesach (Passover) on March 31st, Chag Ha’Matzoh (Unleavened Bread) on April 1st, and Reishit Katzir (Firstfruits) on April 3rd, in the Hebrew Year 5778. The first Pesach was held in Egypt when the Hebrew slaves put blood on the lintels and posts of the doors to their homes and the Angel of Death passed-over them. It has been celebrated by Jews and Gentiles for over three thousand years.

Most famously, the festival is noted for its lack of leaven (hametz) and the Seder Meal which is eaten while the story of the first exodus is recounted. Each year those celebrating the feast will scour their homes for every last trace of leaven, and remove all of it from the home. On Pesach eve, the Seder Meal is served and includes a shank of lamb, bitter herbs, matzo, and the Afikoman, plus much more. If you have not yet been to a Seder, by all means find one to attend.

Don’t Do It

Over the past couple of years we have encouraged, exhorted, and blatantly begged the readers of this blog to have nothing to do with the occult practices that have inundated worship of Yahweh and to get back to the Biblical way to do so.

Breaking Commandments
Exodus 20:3 – “You shall have no other gods before me.”
Exodus 23:13 – “Make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.”
Yahweh is not pleased that his moed, Pesach, is now known by the name of a pagan fertility goddess – Easter – in direct violation of both Commandments One and Two.

Wrong Dates
Leviticus 23:5 – “On the fourteenth day of the first month, comes Pesach for Yahweh.”
Pesach is to be celebrated on the 14th day of Nissan, not on the first Sunday after the full moon, a pagan holiday.

Conformity to the World
Romans 12:2 – “Do not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable and perfect will of Yahweh.”
If you are conformed to the ways of the world, breaking the Commandments and celebrating on the wrong dates, it is past time to repent and change! Be transformed, renew your mind, do that which is good and acceptable and perfect so that your witness will bring glory to Yahweh, Yeshua, and the Ruach Ha’Kodesh!

Conforming to Scripture
Easter is an abomination to Yahweh. So, if you plan to celebrate Easter on April 1, 2018, Don’t do it! If your church refuses to celebrate Pesach as commanded by scripture, perhaps it is time to find a new church. At the very least, calling it Resurrection Sunday would be better than continuing to call it by the name of another god (or goddess). Better yet, take that Sunday off and then have a long talk with your pastor! Nuff Said.

Happy Birthday Yeshua

Happy Birthday Yeshua. Saturday, March 17, 2018 will be the 1st of Nisan on the Biblical calendar and we get to sing that little ditty so familiar to all (with a few words changed!):

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Yeshua,
Yahweh’s sacrificial Lamb.

Nisan 1
Exodus 12:2 – “This month will be the beginning of the months for you; it will be the first of the months of the year.”
Exodus 40:1-2 – “Yahweh said to Moshe, ‘On the first day of the first month, you are to set up the tabernacle’.”
John 1:29 – “He saw Yeshua coming and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world’ !”

Spring is when the month of Nisan begins. It is officially called the First Month, Rosh Chodesh [רֹאשׁ ro’sh -H7218; חֹדֶשׁ chodesh – H2320], or in the plural, the First of Months, Rosh Chodeshim (Exodus 12:2). The first of Nisan is the time that the tabernacle is to be set up(Exodus 40:1-2).

Spring is also the time that lambs are born, known throughout the land of Israel as the “lambing season”. And spring is the time that shepherds would be out in the fields, grazing the sheep and looking up at the heavenly stars each night. Scripture is telling us something important – Yeshua is THE sacrificial lamb born during lambing season!

The Tabernacle/Tent
John 1:14 – “The Word became a human being and tabernacled with us, and we saw his Sh’khinah, the Sh’khinah of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.”
2 Peter 1:13-14 – “And I consider it right to keep stirring you up with reminders, as long as I am in the tent of this body. I know that I will soon lay aside this tent of mine, as our Lord Yeshua the Messiah has made clear to me.

John 1:14 tells us that Yeshua came and tabernacled [σκηνόω skēnoō – G4637] with us. 2 Peter 1:13-14 tells us that our bodies are a tent [σκήνωμα skēnōma – G4638]. Skēnōma comes from the root word, skēnoō. The Greek word, skēnoō, indicates a tent, which in Hebrew becomes the word, mishkan [מִשְׁכָּן – H4908]. Scripture is telling us something important – Yeshua came and pitched his mishkan with us!

The Firstborn
Romans 8:29 – “For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.”
John 3:16-18 – “For Yahweh so loved the world that he gave his one and only unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed. For Yahweh did not send his Son into the world to judge the world, but rather so that through him, the world might be saved. Those who trust in him are not judged; those who do not trust have been judged already, in that they have not trusted in the one who is Yahweh’s one and only unique Son.”

Zechariah 12:10, John 3:16-18, Romans 8:29 and other scriptures tell us that Yeshua is Yahweh’s firstborn son – his one and only unique son. Scripture is telling us something important – Yeshua is THE Rosh, the first in all things! In other words, Yeshua, our firstborn, came to mishkan with us on the 1st of Nisan!

The Sacrificial Lambs of Bethlehem
Luke 2:13-15 – “Suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, on Earth shalom, good will toward men.’ It happened, when the angels went away from them into the sky, that the shepherds said one to another, ‘Let’s go to Bethlehem, now, and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us’.”

Again, spring is also the time that lambs are born, known throughout the land of Israel as the “lambing season”. And spring is the time that shepherds would be out in the fields, grazing the sheep and looking up at the heavenly stars each night. And just outside of Bethlehem is the place where they would have been grazing the sheep.

In Hebrew, the word translated Bethlehem is Beit-Lechem [Βηθλέεμ G965] which means: house of bread! Bethlehem, known as Ephratah, is the place where Rachel was buried after she died and is the place where the Tower of Migdal-`Eder was located (Genesis 35:19). Migdal-`Eder [מִגְדַּל־עֵדֶר H4029] means: Tower of the Flock! The Tower of the Flock is the place where the ewes were brought to give birth to the special, perfect, unblemished firstborn lambs that were selected for sacrifice at the temple in Jerusalem!

Yeshua – God’s Sacrificial Lamb
Micah 5:2 – “But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, being small among the clans of Judah, Out of you one will come forth to me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.”
John 1:29 – “The next day he saw Yeshua coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world’ !”

Yeshua, Yahweh’s firstborn lamb was born in Bethlehem. Yeshua is that special, perfect, unblemished firstborn lamb that was sacrificed for all!

Binding The Lamb
Genesis 22:9 – “Then they came to the place of which Yahweh had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.”
Psalm 118:27 – “Yahweh is God, and he has given us light. Bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar.”
John 18:12-13 – “The detachment, the commanding officer, and the officers of the Jews, seized Yeshua and bound him, and led him to Anan first, for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was High Priest that year.”

Isaac, a picture of the sacrificial lamb, was bound and laid on the altar (Genesis 22:9). The lambs sacrificed at the Temple were bound to the horns of the altar (Psalm 118:27). Yeshua was bound and taken to the High Priest (John 18:12-13), and was then bound to the tree [nailed to the cross] (Acts 2:23). Yeshua was even bound in cloth at his birth (Luke 2:7-12). Before a lamb can be sacrificed, it must first be bound! The lamb is sacrificed on the 14th day of Nisan during the Feast of Pesach (Passover).

Scripture is telling us some very important things: Nisan is the first month, the Rosh Chodesh, the month when sacrificial lambs are born. It is in the month of Nisan that the lambs are bound – on the 14th day when Pesach is celebrated. It is Nisan 1 when Yeshua was born, the day when Yeshua came and pitched his mishkan with us, and he is THE Rosh, the first in all things! Everyone in Israel recognized Bethlehem as being synonymous with sacrificial lambs. No wonder that Yahweh’s sacrificial lamb was born there, as were all of the lambs destined for the Temple sacrifices!

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.
Other Date Theories
Luke 2:8 – “In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.”

Several other theories have been set forth as the “actual” day of Yeshua’s birth. Two of those theories are: 1) Sukkoth which falls between mid September and mid October, and 2) Hanukkah which falls between late November and the latter days of December.

This theory attempts to establish the timeline of Yeshua’s birth by studying the timeline of Zacharias’s priestly duties as a member of the Abijah division. The timeline is as follows:

Zacharias is the father of John the Baptizer. After his duties, Zacharias returned home and John was conceived in mid July to mid August, or the Hebrew month of Av. Nine months later would bring one to Nisan, and six months after that would bring one to Tishri, or mid September to mid October. The theory then assumes that Yeshua would have been born on Sukkoth, which is also called Booths or Tabernacles, and then ties that to John 1:14. The word translated dwelt is the Greek word skēnoō [σκηνόω G4637], which in Hebrew would be translated tabernacled.

The theory also assumes that Yeshua was born in a sukkah (or booth) and that this temporary shelter was later referred to as a manger, or that his earthly body was a like a sukkah in that his earthly body was a temporary structure until he was resurrected and received his permanent, glorified body. These assumptions are not supported by the scriptures.

This theory links the gestation period of humans to the Feasts of Yahweh and the patterns that they represent:

  • Pesach (Numbers 9:5): On the 14th day of the first month, the egg appears.
  • Chag Ha’Matzoh (Numbers 28:17): The egg must be fertilized within 24 hours or will die.
  • Reishit Katzir (Numbers 28:24-26): The egg attaches to the womb and begins to grow within the next 2-6 days.
  • Shavuot (Leviticus 23:15-16): The embryo takes on a human form with legs, arms, etc. around the fiftieth day.
  • Yom Teruah (Numbers 29:1): On the first day of the 7th month hearing develops. Sounds from outside the womb can be heard.
  • Yom Kippurim (Numbers 29:7): On the tenth day of the 7th month, the baby’s own blood forms.
  • Sukkoth (Numbers 29:12): On the fifteenth day of the 7th month, the lungs become fully developed.
  • Hanukkah (John 10:22): Birth generally takes place on the tenth day of the ninth month after conception.

This theory assumes that Yeshua is born in December, either on Hanukkah or December 25th, because either day falls in this month, and Hanukkah and December 25 are often the same day when the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars mesh or dovetail. Again, these assumptions are not supported by the scriptures.

Unlikely Dates Conclusions
These two dates for Yeshua’s birth are not in accordance with scripture, and the most unlikely date of Yeshua’s birth is December 25th.

Sukkoth, or as some call it “Tabernacles”, falls short in that Yeshua was not born in a sukkah or a booth [H5523 סֻכּוֹת], but came and tabernacled or pitched his tent, a mishkan [מִשְׁכָּן – H4908]. The weather in late fall can be windy, wet, and cold, not at all a time to be traveling on foot or with a pregnant woman.

Hanukkah falls short for the same reason – too cold and too wet for either travel or grazing sheep. The weather in December is cold, wet, and not the least bit suitable for travel by a pregnant woman, Mary. Neither is it suitable for shepherds to be “out in their fields,” nor for Romans to hold a census at a time that would require families to travel in such poor weather.

Corrections and Objections

The Two Witnesses of Revelation blogs have garnered some interest in the subject, and one or more objections.

Typos and Corrections
The blog has one glaring typo, or perhaps a senior moment, that has been corrected. I must have been thinking of the early and latter rains when I wrote this, and then failed to correct it for the Favorite 26 synopsis! It originally read: during the latter half of the tribulation period. YIKES! This has been corrected to read: during the first half of the tribulation period.

Another typo concerns the word also, in statements about the Serahpim / Cheribum coming in human form or taking on human form. These have all been corrected to read: may come in (or take on) human form. Finally, in conclusions the phrase: In their human form, has been changed to read: At the end of their earthly witnessing .

Pastors, especially sharp pastors who know their Greek and Hebrew, and who know scripture from beginning to end, or should I say from aleph to tav, are a blessing to all. One major objection has been raised by just such a pastor. His objection is to the comment: “Could the two witnesses be Seraphim / Cherubim who may come in human form, are killed, and are then resurrected? Perhaps so!”

The comment was given to generate thinking and conversation. Pastor and I had a very lively conversation regarding this comment! He had no objection to a heavenly being taking on human form when appearing or interacting with humans, but he wondered, “Can an angel, seraph, or cherub really be killed.”

Rebuttal: Can Heavenly Beings Die?
My thinking on this stems from several scriptures, but primarily from: Isaiah 28, Psalm 82, and Matthew 10.

Isaiah 28:10 – “Precept by precept, precept by precept, line by line, line by line, a little here, a little there.”
One must combine several concepts throughout scripture to make the above comment that a heavenly being can be killed while on earth, whether in human form or not.

Matthew 10: 28 – “Do not fear those who kill the body but are powerless to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Gei-Hinnom.”
Matthew tells us that Yahweh can destroy not only bodies, but souls as well. The real question is: Does this apply to heavenly beings that may or may not take on human form? I say perhaps so, because of the statement Yahweh makes in Psalm 82!

Psalm 82:1 – “Elohim has taken His place in the divine assembly; He judges among the gods.”
Psalm 82:6-7 – Yahweh says to the gods: “My decree is: ‘You are gods, sons of the Most High all of you. Nevertheless, you will die like mortals; like any prince, you will fall’.”
This psalm makes it very clear that the heavenly beings, here called gods and sons of the Most High, can indeed die like a mortal human being, if Yahweh makes that decision.

The two witnesses of Revelation will one day be revealed. The Two Witnesses may (or may not) be in human form during their three year stint here on earth. I am not sure it makes any difference. It is my contention that when the Two Witnesses are killed, it is only their bodies that die just as it is only a human’s body that dies; their spirit lives on. Three days after the Two Witnesses’ bodies are killed, their spirits re-enter their bodies, the bodies resurrect, and rise into heaven.

Purim 2018

The dates for Purim 2018 are March 1st and March 2nd.

Purim begins at sunset today, Wednesday, February 28th and ends at sunset Friday, March 2nd.

Purim celebrates the victory of the Jews over those who would try to oppress or kill them. It is one of the most enjoyable festivals on the calendar, celebrated by reading the Book of Esther, during which people will boo, howl, hoot and shake noisemakers whenever Haman’s name is mentioned.

Many homes, synagogues and Jews celebrate by putting on plays and dressing up as one of the characters, especially Esther, Mordecai, and Haman. Dressing up symbolizes the way Esther’s true identity was hidden until Esther put on her royal clothing and revealed herself to King Ahasuerus. Food is an important part of the festival as well and many send baskets filled with two kinds of food and drink to each other. Others will give money to the needy or to charities they support. Purim is such a popular holiday that it will continue to be celebrated after the Messiah comes (Midrash Mishlei 9).

Worms and Maggots

Are you ready to go fishing? If so, then you are going to need some worms, some Hebrew rimmâh or some Greek skōlēx. But if you are looking for salvation, then you are going to need an entirely different worm, a Tôlâʽ or Tôlêʽâh Worm . Yup, you guessed it, Hebrew has several distinct words for the English equivalent.

The Rimmâh / Skōlēx Worm [רִמָּה H7415 / σκώληξ G4663]
Job 7:5 – “My flesh is clothed with wormsH7415 and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.”
Job 21:26 – “They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the wormsH7415shall cover them.”
Mark 9:44-48 – “Where their wormG4663 dies not, and the fire is not quenched.”
The rimmâh / skōlēx worm is the fishing kind of worm, also known as a maggot. This worm is a cause and sign of decay. This is the same worm that caused Herod to become sick, to be eaten by worms and die (Acts 12:23).

The Tôlâʽ or Tôlêʽâh Worm [תּוֹלֵעָה H8439]
Isaiah 41:14–“Do not fear, you wormH8439 Jacob, you men of Israel; I will help you, declares Yahweh.”
Jonah 4:7 – “But when dawn came up the next day, Yahweh appointed a wormH8439 that attacked the bush.”
The tôlâʽ or tôlêʽâh Worm is the female ‘Coccus Illicis’ worm which the Hebrews used to make the red dye used in the coverings of the Tabernacle and the clothes of the priests. It is known as the crimson worm because of this color.

The Yeshua Tôlâʽ or Tôlêʽâh Worm
Job 25:6 – “How much less man, that is a wormH7415 and the son of man, which is a wormH8439.”
Psalm 22 – “But I am a wormH8439 and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people. All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads. ‘He trusts in Yahweh,’ they say, ‘Let Yahweh rescue him. Let him deliver Him, since He delights in Him’.”
Job 25:6 uses both Hebrew words for worm, calling man a rimmâh and the son of man, Yeshua, a tôlêʽâh. As Yeshua is being crucified, fully aware of Job’s quote, he then quotes from Psalm 22 (Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34). Psalm 22 and Job 25:6 both prophecy about the Messiah and this is why Yeshua applies the word tôlêʽâh to himself. It is the tôlêʽâh worm, or crimson worm, that climbs into the Hermes Oak, attaches itself to the tree and dies for its children, staining the tree red for three days, then turns white and flakes off. Isaiah 1:18 speaks of this saying: “Says Yahweh: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

Dr, Jobe Martin says of this tôlêʽâh:

  • When the momma worm is ready to lay her eggs she climbs up a tree or fence post.
  • She attaches herself to the tree and builds a hard red shell around herself.
  • Inside this crimson shell she lays her eggs, keeping her eggs under her body to protect them.
  • After hatching the baby worms feed on the body of the mother for three days.
  • During these three days the mother worm oozes a bright crimson red fluid. This red fluid stains the tree and the young worms are covered and permanently stained with it. After three days the young worms are ready to leave the shell.
  • The mother is still attached to the shell and to the tree and she dies so that she can birth a family.
  • On day four the mother worm’s tail pulls up to her head into a heart shape, and the heart is no longer red—it turns into a snow white wax. The snow white wax looks like a little patch of wool on the side of the tree and begins to flake off and drop to the ground like snow.

Click here for Dr. Martins’s full essay:The Incredible Crimson Worm

1 Peter 2:24 – “Yeshua bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.”
Yeshua likened Himself with the Tôlâ or Tôlê âh Worm – a perfect picture of the messiah. Like the Crimson Worm, Yeshua was also attached to a tree to die (1 Peter 2:24). He did so willingly and died to give birth to his family, the Bride of Yeshua ((John 10:17-18). The beatings, tortures, and crucifixion turned his body red with the shed blood (Luke 18:33). Yeshua rose from the dead after three days just as the baby worms leave the shell after three days (Matthew 12:40). His shed blood covers our sins and turns them white as snow (Isaiah 1:18). How awesome is our God to provide us with such an example, with so many coinkydinks! Awesome in deed.

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.

Trump and Coincidence

A one time occurrence is purely chance. Twice may be a fluke, and three or more times is beyond just coincidence.  So say the statisticians!

Coinkydink 1: Cyrus
Isaiah 45:1 – Yahweh calls Cyrus his appointed one.

Several prophecies by Mark Taylor and Torah Code expert, Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, predicted that Donald Trump would be the man appointed to be president. Donald Trump has also been compared to King Cyrus of Persia by several people and news outlets. It has even been conjectured that Yahweh might use Trump to be a modern day Cyrus for the good of America. But is this at all scriptural?

It is said that Cyrus died at the age of 70, and on the first day of his presidency, January 21, 2016, Donald Trump turned 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old. It would appear that if Trump is the “new Cyrus” then he has taken up the mantle that the Biblical Cyrus departed. In Isaiah 45:1 Yahweh says of Cyrus: “I have taken hold of your right hand to help you capture nations and remove kings from power.” Not only is Trump the 45th President, he seems bound and determined to remove at least one king, Kim Jung-un, from power. Just coincidence, I’m sure!

Coinkydink 2: Eternal Jerusalem
2 Chronicles 33:4 And Yahweh said, ‘In Jerusalem shall my name be forever’.”
Zechariah 1:11-17 – An angel asks Yahweh “How long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which you have had indignation these seventy years?” Yahweh replies: “I have returned to Jerusalem with mercy. My house shall be built in it.”

Just recently President Donald Trump declared that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. Trump has clearly stated his love for Israel and the Israeli people by declaring: “We will move the American Embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem!” He has been heralded as the president who will bring Israel peace and security and has himself said he has “laid a pathway to peace and security in our world.”

Israel has now been a nation for seventy years. This is when Yahweh says his house will be built and he will begin to judge the nations, at the end of the 70 years, in the 2nd year of an administration. We are in the 2nd year of Trump’s presidency. Just another coincidence, I’m sure!

Coinkydink 3: Fake News
Isaiah 44:24-25 – “I am Yahweh . . . who destroys the omens of the false prophets and makes fools of diviners; who confounds the wise and makes their knowledge foolishness; who confirms the message of His servant, and who says to the depths of the sea: ‘Be dry’.”

The false information disseminated by numerous news agencies has time and time again forced those same agencies to disavow their false prophets! They sound like fools, totally confounded by what Trump and his administration is accomplishing. “This became apparent after multiple stories from a variety of some of the biggest networks, NYT, CNN, Washington Post, ABC News, CBS News, and MSNBC, have had to be corrected, edited, changed, re-headlined and in some cases completely retracted, and in other cases employees were forced to resign or were suspended, once the truth was revealed“, according to All News Pipeline.

Despite the continuing anti-Trump sentiment and vitriol, Trump’s message is going out and his agenda to clean up the swamp, or to dry up the sea as scripture puts it, is slowly picking up steam – Yahweh seems to be affirming the message of his appointed servant. Yah, Yah, I know, just another coincidence!

Coinkydink 4: The Temple
Ezra 1:2 – “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘Yahweh Elohim of heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah’.”
Haggai 1:1-4 – “In the second year of Darius the king, . . . the Word of the LORD came by Haggai, the prophet, saying, “Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies waste?”

Again, we are in the 2nd year of Trump’s presidency. Cyrus had already told them to build the temple. Darius agreed, but the people questioned whether or not it was time.

The Israeli Sanhedrin has been making plans for the rebuilt third Temple, and in 2016 called upon Trump and Vladamir Putin to “join forces and fulfill their Biblically mandated roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.” Isaiah 44:28 declares that his shepherd, or appointed person, will say to Jerusalem: “She will be rebuilt, and of the temple: Its foundation will be laid.” Just a final coincidence, I’m sure!

The “coincidences” are interesting to say the least. What if Trump is Yahweh’s instrument to fund and/or empower the Israeli’s to defeat their surrounding enemies and to make it possible for the Temple’s foundation to be rebuilt, both conditions that must be accomplished according to scripture? What if all the “coincidences” above are more than just wishful thinking? Could 2018 be the year that Yahweh uses Trump to begin or even fully achieve the restoration of Israel’s land before the coming seven years of the tribulation period? Time will tell – we do NOT set dates.

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.
