God’s Purpose and Plan for Our Lives

Has anyone ever wondered, Why was I born? What is my purpose? How can I truly make a difference? The basic answer to these questions can be found in the first chapter of the Bible.

Has anyone ever wondered, Why was I born? What is my purpose? How can I truly make a difference? The basic answer to these questions can be found in the first chapter of the Bible. Why? In Isaiah 46:9-10 God tells us that He declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done.

In the Torah (Genesis – Deuteronomy) God uses the actual history and reality of things that exist in the natural world as a parable to reveal things that are spiritual and prophetic. An example of this in the Gospel is the parable of the sower in Mark 4, which speaks of a sower (planter) who sows (plants) seed in four types of soil. Only one of the four types produces fruit. This is the natural application which is universal. The Lord then explains the spiritual reality of it by stating the sower sows the word of God and that the four types of ground compares to the four types of hearts where the word of God is sown. Only the last type of heart is fruitful (productive).

Likewise, the Seven days of the creation week, Genesis 1:1 – 2:3, reveals the supernatural, natural, the historical, scientific, and real account of the work that God did in creating and defining things. Six days God worked and on the seventh day God rested from His creative activity. Key terms are introduced in Genesis that are the seeds which define God’s purpose and plan in creation and the rest of the Scripture, especially the new creature (or creation) which mankind becomes upon being “born again” (see 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 and John 3:1-21). Each day of the creation week represents God’s plan for our spiritual growth from birth to entering His Rest. I will summarize these terms as follows:

Day 1 – Light out of Darkness = Jesus the Christ (Yahoshua HaMashiach, in Hebrew), the Gospel believed = Born Again, receiving Eternal Life, coming out of Satan’s family into God’s, being enlightened.

Day 2 – Waters above separated from waters beneath = being set apart, sanctified, Holy, being transformed by renewing of the mind with word of God, manifesting the Fruit of the Spirit

Day 3 – Waters gathered together in one place = Unity of the Body of Christ (the Church) under one Head (Jesus Christ) in fellowship and communion in the Word, Prayer, and breaking of bread from house to house, worshipping and praising God in Spirit and in truth.

– Let the earth bring forth (Vegetation) = Fruitfulness in reaping what is sown as we sow our Time, Talent, and Treasure in laboring together with God and one another; sharing the Gospel (Basar) and making disciples, producing children and mature men and women in God.

Day 4 – Lights in the Heavens = God’s stars, models, and mentors who serve as spiritual leaders – parents, big brothers, and big sisters helping others to find the way, the truth, and the life –Jesus (Yahoshua).

Day 5 – Fish & Fowl (Marine life and birds) = Both overcoming and having victory over gravity. As an Eagle, overcome the temptation that would pull us into the ground and get us dirty. Mounting up on Eagles wings so that we run and not get weary and walk and not faint as we wait on and are led by the Spirit. As a fish withstanding the gravity of pressure, tribulation, trouble, that would cause us to faint, give up or lose heart. Remembering that being full of the Holy Spirit greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world, so that we can withstand the pressures that Satan and his world brings to bear upon us. Having victory through faith in Jesus and dependence upon the guidance and power of His Spirit.

Day 6 Ox, Lamb, Mankind = Oxen and Lambs (cattle) are domestic beasts who provide us service. We are to be servants, strong as an ox enduring to the end and humble as a lamb who serves by giving milk to drink, wool for clothing, and meat to eat — giving all of its life that we might live. God’s greatest is that we become servants in His Image and Likeness – Like Jesus the Christ (Yahoshua HaMashiach), who motivated by love, lived and laid down His life for us that we might have life and have it more abundantly.

Day 7 Rest = God rested and has also prepared His rest for us = Refreshing, Restoration, Reward

Every day is dependent upon God’s word for it to happen. Only through God working in us to do of His will and pleasure can we make it through His work week. (Philip 2:12-13) We can only finish our course if we know where the start and finish line is as well as how to run the course in favor with The Judge. (2 Tim. 4:6-8).

It takes three ingredients for success even as we are 3 dimensional in our makeup (spirit, soul, & body):
The Father’s Will – Is your spirit committed to the heart desire of the Father as Jesus’?
The Son’s Word – Is your soul committed to thinking and meditating on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God? Are you letting the mind of Christ be yours (1 Cor 2:16)?
The Holy Spirit’s Work – Is your body subject to your spirit and soul as you will, speak, and do the will, word, and work of God?

This is only possible when we let Christ come into our temples and obey Him working in us — “…Christ in you the hope of glory…” (Colossians 1:27)
When these become one in us we will find good success and true happiness.

As you can see God has a purpose and plan for the spiritual (spirit), mental (soul), physical (body) growth of his children. However he starts not with children but with sinners who are “without form, void, and in darkness” and gives them the Good News (Gospel), that if anyone will turn to God, believe in your heart in His Son, that He died on the cross to take away your sin, then rose from the dead to conqueror the devil and death; make up your mind to make him Lord of your life by surrendering your life and future to obey His direction. You will be saved, forgiven of all your sin, and receive eternal (everlasting) life and be a member of God’s family. The next step is to get acquainted with God’s word and with people who sincerely are committed to following Jesus (Yahoshua) also.

Know that God loves you and desires to make everything that Satan has done through or to you work for your good. No one can heal a broken heart or life but God. He also desires that you will share the good news of what He’s done for you with others.

2017-2020 The Time of Jacob’s Trouble? The Abomination Desolation and Great Tribulation

The time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation, is going to test our love for him, and our faith and hope in him. Like Job patiently endured his trial, we must endure our trial to the end. If we are not committed to living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of ELHYM (God), we will stumble and fall under temptation/tribulation.

 The word that came to Jeremiah from YHWH, saying, (2) Thus speaketh YHWH Elohim of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. (3) For, lo, the days come, saith YHWH, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith YHWH: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. (4) And these are the words that YHWH spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. (5) For thus saith YHWH; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. (6) Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? (7) Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. (8) For it shall come to pass in that day, saith YHWH of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: (9) But they shall serve YHWH their Elohim, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. (10) Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith YHWH; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. (11) For I am with thee, saith YHWH, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished. (12) For thus saith YHWH, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous. (13) There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. (14) All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased. (15) Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee. (16) Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey. (17) For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith YHWH; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. (18) Thus saith YHWH; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. (19) And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. (20) Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. (21) And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith YHWH. (22) And ye shall be my people, and I will be your Elohim. (23) Behold, the whirlwind of YHWH goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. (24) The fierce anger of YHWH shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it. (Jeremiah 30:1-24 RNKJV)
In Jeremiah 30 YHVH instructs Jeremiah to write the words that he speaks to him because the days were coming when he would return (repent) or bring home both his people Israel and Judah. He promised that he would cause them to possess the land which he had given their fathers.
That time has come. In fulfillment of Luke 21:24 Yahudah (Judah) received recognition of Ysrael as a nation from the UN on November 29, 1947. In June of 1967 YHVH delivered Yerushalem (Jerusalem) according to Luke 21:24 out from under the feet of the Gentiles into Yahudah’s (Judah’s) control, although they did not fully follow the commandments of YHVH in possessing it. While Yahudah (Jews) are predominantly the recognized possessors of the land, Yoseph (Joseph)/Ephraim with the majority of all the 13 tribes have yet to return to the land. The time has come in 2016 for the release of the captivity (exiles) of Israel and Judah from all the countries and nations where they have been scattered. In 2017, 50th year Yobel (Jubilee) from 1967 and the 70th year fulfillment since the decreed resolution recognized Israel as a nation, it is now time for all Ysrael to come out of the modern day world system that is like Babylon, Egypt, and Sodom.
In fulfillment of Ezekiel 20:35 and 1 Corinthians 10:1-14 YHVH will bring the House of Ysrael (Israel) into the wilderness of the people and not allow us to serve idols of wood and stone as it is in our mind to do (Ezekiel 20:31-32). The Adversary, Satan, will be forced down (highly probable at Feast of Passover/Unleavened Bread 2017) and take his stand, the Abomination Desolation, in Yerushalem (Jerusalem,). See Daniel 11:29-45 & 12:7-11, Matthew 24:15-29; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-14; Rev 12:7-17. It will take a Strong’s concordance to see that 2 Thess 2 is the same event that is recorded in Rev 12:7-17, because of several words that were chosen to translate the scripture into English (King James Version and other versions). This period has been identified as “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7). The worst of this time will occur during a period of a time, times, and half a time or 3.5 years, or 1260 days. Like Pharaoh, the Man of Sin possessed by Satan will go after the woman (the bride of Messiah) but she will be protected in the wilderness (Ezek 20:35; Isa 4:1-6; Rev 12:14-17). The Great Tribulation which is this time of Jacob’s trouble will end according to Matthew 24:29. Matthew 24:29 establishes that this will all take place before the seventh, last trumpet of Revelation when the resurrection of the righteous to meet Mashiach in the air occurs in Matthew 24:31 in fulfillment of Deut 30:1-6 (1 Thess 4:13-18; 1 Cor 15:52). Note that immediately after the tribulation of those days (Matt 24:29-31; Mark 13:24-27) are events leading up to the resurrection of the “called out ones”. Following is the order of fulfillment beginning with the historic restoration of the Nation of Israel and Jerusalem to Yahudah (Judah or Jews):
(1) Israel established birthed as a nation again, in one day, November 29, 1947 UN decreed/May 15, 1948 Judah established, before the travail comes (Isa 66:7-9).
(2) Luke 21:24 already fulfilled from 1959- June 1967 Six Day War) YHVH delivers all Jerusalem into Judah’s hands.
(3) Daily caused to cease 30 day’s before the 1260 days begins (30+1260=1290; Daniel 12:7-11). This is anticipated to take place at Purim on the 15th of the 1st month 30 days before Unleavened Bread 2017, the anniversary day of the Exodus from Egypt.
(4) The Abomination Desolation period of Great tribulation for 3.5 years (Daniel 12:11; Matt 24:15; Mark 13:14-24, Rev 12:7-14; also Rev 11). Anticipated to start feast of Passover/Unleavened Bread 2017 and continue to three years and six months later in 2020 at the Feast of Tabernacles.
(5) The sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. Anticipated some time after Tabernacles 2020.
(6) Then the sign of the Son of man shall appear in heaven (not the son of man but his sign – a resurrection of the two witnesses before the 7th trumpet) (Rev 11:11-13) Anticipated some time after Tabernacles 2020.
(7) and then all the tribes of the earth mourn and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory and he shall gather together his elect (chosen) from the four winds from one end of heaven to the other. Anticipated some time after Tabernacles 2020.
(8) After the 7th last trump sounds (Revelation 11:15-19; 16:1-21) and the saints are lifted up above the fiery wrath that is to follow then the seven bowls or vials of God’s (ELHYM’s) wrath will be poured out upon the Beast and the wicked unrighteous. This will end with Yahoshah returning with his resurrected saints to conqueror the Promised Land like Joshua (Yahoshah) and bring us into full possession of our inheritance. (Zech 14; Rev 19) Anticipated some time after Tabernacles 2020.
We don’t know in what year Yahoshah will return to earth. He established in scripture that the period of the Abomination Desolation with its following events will occur before the resurrection of the dead in Mashiach (Messiah or Christ) and his return to reign over the earth from Yerushalem (Jerusalem). His people are now being called to return (repent) to him and to forsake the sins of desire for evil things, idolatry, fornication, tempting Messiah (Christ), and murmuring (1 Cor 10:6-13). If we love Yahoshah (Jesus) we will keep his commandments and avoid being called least in the Kingdom of Heaven by seeking to do and teach all, even the least, of his commandments (Matt 5:16-19). We don’t keep his commandments to be saved. We keep them because we have been saved by the loving Savior’s blood of his New (Renewed) Covenant and because we love him in return.
The time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation, is going to test our love for him, and our faith and hope in him. Like Job patiently endured his trial, we must endure our trial to the end. If we are not committed to living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of ELHYM (God), we will stumble and fall under temptation/tribulation.
On the anniversary of the first Abomination Desolation or the Feast of Dedication (Lights), December 25, we are presented again with a choice of who we will serve. We can not serve the idols of Christmas (Zeus, Jupiter, Santa Claus, Trees, etc) and serve YHVH ELHYM (the LORD our God). We must choose the idols and lusts of darkness or The Light of the World, Yahoshah haMashiach (Jesus the Christ). If we don’t choose to serve YHVH our Heavenly Father while it is easy to choose, how will we in a few months when we will under force be told not to serve him?
The Feast of Hanukkah (The Feast of Dedication, John 10:22), also called the Feast of Lights is a time when we should dedicate or rededicate our spirits, souls, and bodies to YHVH’s Way, Truth, and Life in serving him according to his will and not our own. Let us not feed our lusts but rather nourish our love for him and the fruit of his love in us. Lets cleanup out temple (spirit, soul, and body) and prepare for the troublesome days ahead. Love is a choice, not a feeling. Let us choose to love YHVH ELHYM (the LORD God) with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Likewise let us choose to love our neighbor as ourself.
If YHVH didn’t start it why do we keep it going? Jesus Christ (Yahoshah Mashiach) is not the reason for the season of Christmas. He is the reason for the Feast of Dedication, also called the Feast of Lights (John 8:12-10:42). After the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah), Yahoshah (Jesus) returned to a place of cleansing (baptism). Let us also return to the place of the Cross (Tav) or Covenant, where in Him we died, to sin as  we’re buried with him in baptism, so that we can now walk in the newness of the Spirit of Life in Mashiach Yahoshah (Christ Jesus). Lastly, be of good cheer. The great worldly tribulation is coming but Yahoshah (Jesus) has already overcome the world (John 6:33). Although YHVH, as he said, makes an end of all nations, he promised that he would not make a full end of the House of Israel and Judah. He will punish us in part but a remnant shall return to him. Yahoshah (Jesus), like the first Adam, does not have his whole body used to form his bride, but will take her out of his body and present her to himself without spot, wrinkle, or any such thing, holy and without blemish (Eph 5:25-27). His bride will be composed of the wise virgins who will be ready when he comes. They will pass the bridegrooms test in drinking of the cup and being baptized in the fiery trial. They will enter the bride chamber with the bridegroom (Matthew 25:10) We are not to be like foolish virgins who have defiled themselves in not keeping enough oil and light in their lamps to walk right. YHVH will judge the adulterous woman of the world who rides on the beast. (Numbers 5:11-31; Lam 1:15; Matt 25:1-13; Rev 14:19-20; 19:15)

Feast of Pentecost 06-03-2017

At sunset today (6-3-2017) the 50th day called Pentecost began. In the morning at about 9am is the anniversary of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. On YHVH’s (God’s) calendar this is the 8th day of the 3rd month, 6017 years from Adam. This week also marks the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Six Day War (June 5-10) when Judah (Jews) recovered East Jerusalem where the Temple site is located and much of Samaria and Judea. For over 50 years now Judah (Jews) have been returning home. This year completes a Jubilee of 50 years and now the time is at hand for the Joes (Joseph) as well as the Jews (Judah) to return to their land. Note the Scripture on the Liberty Bell quotes from Leviticus 25:8-13 in verse 10. Joseph’s dry bones can and will live again as the 12 tribes plus Levi are uniting in YHVH through the faith of Yahoshuah (Jesus) and keeping his commandments in love. The “Latter Rain” outpouring of the Holy Spirit is near, perhaps even this year on the last day, that great day of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukot).

Lessons from the Land

A visit to the Holy Land confirming all that the Word declared concerning it. The glory of all lands and the testimony of a couple who were blessed to visit.

During October 15-26 of 2016 and May 15-26 of 2017 my wife and I made our tour (tur) of the land of Israel and its people. It is as the Lord YHVH said, “The glory of all lands” (Ezekiel 20:6,15). We are preparing for the last days wilderness where Yahoshuah’s (Jesus’) bride will be according to Ezekiel 20:35-44, 1 Cor 10:1-13, and Rev 12:7-17 before the resurrection and catching up of 1 Thess 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:52. Our redemption draws near. Let us repent (return) to YHVH from our wicked and lawless ways. Seek to avoid being called “the least in the Kingdom of Heaven”. Let us aspire to be faithful servants who will also be “called great in the kingdom of heaven” through obedience to the faith and love of God and his Word.

A Word from YHVH concerning 2017

Fresh off the press a word for 2017 from the Lord. The Horror of Great Darkness as seen by Abraham and how it relates to Current Events today. Read and understand

On 7-22-2017 I received a word from the LORD (YHVH) concerning 2017. The lord led me to re-read Genesis 15:12 concerning Abram’s (Abraham’s) deep sleep. Upon doing so the Lord focused my attention on a “horror of great darkness fell upon him.” As I pondered what this horror of great darkness was that fell upon Abraham, YHVH led me to study the word “horror”. It is Strong’s concordance lexicon number H367. It occurs 17 times in the Hebrew Bible (O.T.). When I saw that I new that it had implication concerning this 17th year of the 7th millennium (2017 CE or 6017 From Adam). On yesterday 7-29-2017 I read all of the scripture passages in which the Hebrew word translated “horror” occurs. The context of these 17 occurrences of this word (AYMH) addresses things that will transpire this year concerning the United States of America, Israel, and the world.

Jer 50:12 (KJV) “the hindermost” (Strong’s H319) speaks of the “last” or “end” nation. The remnant of both the house of Israel and the house of Judah will leave this “last nation” that is about to be destroyed. They will enter into the wilderness spoken of by Ezekiel 20:32-44; 37:1-22; 1 Cor 10:1-14. The 400 years of Genesis 15:12-16 from 1616 to 2016 have expired. The nation where Joseph’s prophetic life has been lived through his descendants is where the United Nations has been headquartered up to now. The judgment upon this nation will prompt the repentance or return of YHVH’s people to him from all nations. It is time to watch and pray and intercede as never before. The final Feasts (Appointed Times – Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles) of the year 2017 are near (September 21 – October 13).

 

This Month in HisStory: Events of the Fifth Month Point to this Seventh Millennium

This month in His Story (History) focuses on events in the course of history from the Creator’s perspective, that is, according to His Word. History is important in that YHVH (the LORD) said we would remember and note the blessings and curses in earth that resulted from his people’s obedience or disobedience, respectively (Deut 30:1-8), that would result in us returning to keep the commandments he gave us with a circumcised heart (.v8).

 

A second, essential need for looking at His Story is that YHVH (the LORD) our Creator has proven from the beginning that he is the one and only true ELHYM (God) in that he “…declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done…” He tells us that he foretold events thousands of years before they occurred. (Isaiah 41:23; 42:9;46:9-10; 48:2-12)

 

Since the beginning YHVH ELHYM (the LORD God), the eternal ELHYM, has taught us by example to number our days (Gen 1:1-2:3; Psalm 90:12). It is important to note that Psalm 90 has the seventh millennial (1000) day of YHVH (the LORD) in view as YHVH counts down to the time in which he will exercise his judgment and wrath upon the unrighteous and rebellious. Peter said of this time period that the elements will melt with fervent heat (2 Pet3:1-18) as ELHYM (God) executes judgment and vengeance on the unrighteous and ungodly. Peter admonishes the disciples not to be ignorant or carried away with the error of the wicked. This time period is repeatedly referred to as “the day of the LORD”, “the LORD’s day”, etc., because it is built on the foundation of the seventh day of the literal creation week. Adam literally died, as he was foretold would be the consequence of eating the forbidden fruit, at 930 years of age, 70 years short of starting a second millennial day. He died in the first millennium. As a general practice, YHVH (the LORD) uses the number seven and/or its multiples in history (His Story) to declare things concerning the end time. In this fifth month we look at the prophet, Ezekiel, and an event that took place in fifth month and seventh year.

An Event of the Fifth Month (Ezekiel 20:1 –44)

Ezekiel 20:1 – 4 (KJV)1And it came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month, that certain of the elders of Israel came to inquire of the LORD, and sat before me.  2Then came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,  3Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye come to inquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.  4Wiltthou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them toknow the abominations of their fathers:

Although the Kingdom and House of Israel had been taken away during the Assyrian captivity (2 Kings17), there remained a small remnant of Israel, including Ephraim and Manasseh, in the land along with the Gentiles that had been transplanted in Samaria by the Assyrian king (2 Chronicles 30:6). They were invited by Hezekiah to celebrate Passover. Of this remnant there were elders of Israel who went to Ezekiel in the seventh year and fifth month in an effort to inquire of YHVH (the LORD). YHVH reminded the House of Israel of their transgressions and rebellion against him since before they were brought out of Egypt up to the time they were dispersed by the Assyrians who took Samaria. YHVH had divorced the House of Israel (the Northern Kingdom). Eight years afterward the fortified cities of Judah were also taken, except Jerusalem.(2 Kings 18:9-13, 19:32-37).

In Ezekiel 20:1-31 YHVH rehearses the history of Israel as it pertained especially to the Northern Kingdom. YHVH declares that he will not be inquired of by the House of Israel (which he had divorced, Jer 3:8). However, YHVH went onto speak of a future day, when the House of Israel would decide to identify themselves as Gentiles who serve wood and stone, that he would intervene and stop them in the other countries where they have been scattered. Now that the Gospel has gone forth to the uttermost parts of the earth, YHVH is now preparing to gather both the House of Judah and the House of Israel from their exile,into the wilderness of the peoples (v. 35), where he is preparing now to speak in pleading with us face to face. This time in the wilderness will clearly be marked soon when we see the Abomination that makes Desolate stand in the Holy Place in Jerusalem.  In the first exodus from Egypt, Joseph’s bones were brought out and taken into the Promised Land 40 years later. This time the dry bones of Joseph’s descendants (Ephraim and Manasseh) along with, the descendants of his 11 brothers will be brought out of all the countries where they’ve all been scattered into the wilderness, accompanied again by a mixed multitude of Gentile companions. Paul, the Apostle, aBenjamite, foretold that the trials and temptations Israel experienced for 40 years in the wilderness was an example for us on whom the end of the ages have come. We are now going to repeat their experience during the course of 3.5 years instead of 40 years, before we enter into the Promised Land (See Ezekiel 20:32-44, 37:1-28; Jer 16:14-21; 23:7-8; 1Cor 10:1-13; Rev 12:7-17). Israel went through 42 places between Egypt and the Promise Land. The Israel of ELHYM (God) will go through 42 months before we enter the Promised Land (Rev 11:2-3). Both houses of Jacob will bear witness to the Word of YHVH (the LORD) along with the two prophets in the earth, during the reign of the Anti-Messiah (Anti-Christ). The espoused bride of the Messiah will go through this time of testing to be purified as was Job. This time of trial (or tribulation) will fulfill the test of the Jealous husband found in Numbers 5. It will be at the last trump, the seventh trumpet of Revelation that the Body of Messiah (Christ) will be resurrected and caught up to meet him in the air as he returns from Heaven. It is there in the air he will prepare us for entrance into the Promised Land as Moses prepared Joshua (Jesus or YeHoSHua) to take Israel in to possess the land. During that time of preparation, the seven bowls of God’s wrath will be poured upon the earth.

The U.S.A. and Great Britain can be identified in scripture as the countries where Joseph’s legacy and the promise he received from his father Israel have been fulfilled (with the USA representing Ephraim and Great Britain representing Manasseh). The USA is the nation where Ephraim, also the seed of Abraham is about to complete 400 years of servitude and affliction (Gen 15:13-14) following four thousand year revolutions (generations) from Abraham. Prepare to enter the wilderness outside of the cities.

This Month in His Story: The Eighth Month Call to Repent (Return)

This month in His Story (History) focuses on events in the course of history from the Creator’s perspective, that is, according to His Word. History is important in that YHVH (the LORD) said we would remember and note the blessings and curses in earth that resulted from his people’s obedience or disobedience, respectively (Deut 30:1-8), that would result in us returning to keep the commandments he gave us with a circumcised heart (.v8).

A second, essential need for looking at His Story is that YHVH (the LORD) our Creator has proven from the beginning that he is the one and only true ELHYM (God) in that he “…declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done…” He tells us that he foretold events thousands of years before they occurred. (Isaiah 41:23; 42:9;46:9-10; 48:2-12)

 

Based upon The Creator’s Calendar, October 30th, 2014, is the 5thday of the 8th month 6014. In His Story, Zechariah 1:1-6, it is the eight month during the second year of the reign of Darius.  The LORD (YHVH) calls Judah to return (repent) to him, and he says that he will return to them. He had been very angry with their fathers and told them by former prophets to stop their evil ways and evil deeds. YHVH did to them according to the commandments and statutes he had given them and reminded them of through the prophets.  YHVH is the EL (God) of his Word. What he has promised, he will perform. In his book mercy rejoices over judgment (Exo25:21-22, James 2:13), because of the blood of the Lamb of God that is placed on and before the mercy seat. Our sin is covered by the sacrificial love of YHVH. The mercy seat represented the throne of God on earth before which the High Priest would come once per year to provide a covering for sin. YHVH would appear above the mercy seat to commune with his covenant people. We are to come confidently before the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Heb 4:16).

 

The confidence to approach God rests in compliance with the covenant Word of the Torah, YeHoShua Mashiach (Jesus Christ). However, repentance (returning) to ELHYM (God) in faith has always been the requirement for having our sins forgiven, sent away, or blotted out. Proverbs 28:13 tells us, that he who covers his sins shall not prosper, but whosoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. The first call of the Gospel (Good News) is to hear and return (repent) to YHVH in faith (firmness), not doubting his word. All who do not repent will perish (Luke13:1-5).  God (ELHYM) now commands all people to repent as the day of his judgment approaches (Acts 17:30-31). We can only be covered and blessed by the blood of the Lamb of God. All other coverings will be consumed in the fire of YHVH’s wrath. Man made religions or man made religious leaders can not cover us, the religious traditions of our elders can not cover us, and our own good deeds can not cover us. Only the blood of YeHoShua haMashiach (Jesus the Christ) can cover us. All other coverings are “fig leaves”.  The works of the Torah (Law) can not cover us. There is no good work that we can do to cover for the bad work (sin) that we’ve done. Only the body and blood of Mashiach’s (Christ’s) cross can atone (cover) our nakedness and remove our guilt. We are now in the Day of the LORD (YHVH), the 7th millennium. The consuming fire of His wrath will burn all that have not been fireproofed by the blood of the Lamb, washed in the water of His Word, and Sanctified by His Spirit. As we return to ELHYM (God), he will return to us. As we humbly draw near to him, he will draw near to us (James 4:8-10).

Modern Events in Zechariah’s Eight Visions, Revelation, and other Books

The 11th Month on the Creator’s Calendar – The Word of YHVH came to Zechariah in 8 visions.

It was the 24th day of the 11th month of the year 520 B.C., in the second year of the reign of Darius, which corresponds to Jan/Feb on the Gregorian calendar. Zechariah (ZaKaRYaH) receives eight visions from ELHYM (God) in one evening. The setting of the first vision is the 70th and final year of the appointed captivity of Yahudah (Judah) in Babylon. Two months earlier Zechariah received a Word from YHVH calling the people to return (repent) to YHVH.

Why is the word important to us today? Zechariah’s visions not only had application in his day, but in this day, since we’ve entered into the 7th Millennium from Adam, also known as “The Day of YHVH”. In application to our day, from the visions we can see:

1) Zech 1:7-17 The Horses Among the Myrtle Trees:  YHVH will contend with the Gentile nations in displeasure because he is very jealous over his city Jerusalem and Zion and he will return to Jerusalem with mercy to build his house at some time after these last 70 years of Israel’s recognition as a nation (Nov 29, 1947 to 2017) with the united kingdom of Israel (Ephraim,Judah and their companions). (Daniel 2 – 12; Zech 14; Rev 12; 13; 17; 19; & 20)

2) Zech 1:18-21 The Four Horns and Four Craftsmen:  The four kingdoms that were historically used to bring down Israel and Judah (Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece or Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome) will be the main ones YHVH terrifies in casting down their 4 horns (authority and power). (Daniel 2 & 7-12 Rev 12; 13; 17)

3) Zech 2:1-13 The Man with the Measuring Line:  The measuring line used to measure the width and length of Jerusalem is being extended that he may fill it with His people. He will protect them as a wall of fire and be their glory in her midst. He is calling for their return from the land of the north and the four winds where they have been scattered,calling them out of the daughter of Babylon.Many nations are being grafted into his people in these days and also becoming his people. YHVH is rising up. He will gather his elect from the four winds; Rev 11

4) Zech 3:1-10 The Replacement of Joshua the High Priest’s Filthy Garments with Clean:   He is cleaning up the body of YeHoShua (Joshua or Jesus) his High Priest, removing the filth from the garments of his body as they return from sin and iniquity of their lawlessness to him (Eph4:8-16; 5:25-32; Hebrews)

5) Zech 4:1-14 The Golden Menorah and Olive Trees:  YHVH is about to bring forth his two witnesses in both houses represented by 70 who prophesy with two of them testifying in the camp (Num 29; Rev 11) for 1260 days of a 42 month period. The 144,000 meet with YeHoShua on a Mount as Moses, Aaron & sons, with the Elders; as YeHoShua, Peter, James, and John at Tabernacles, as when YeHoShua appointed the Twelve after spending time in prayer (communing with the Father on a Mount)   (Exo 24; Matt 17:1-13;Mark 9:2-13; Luke 9:28-36; 2 Pet 1:17-18; Rev 7:1-17; 14:1-5; Rev 11; Rev 12:6)

6) Zech 5:1-4 The Flying Scroll:  The flying scroll shaped as cylinders representing the rockets, missiles, or planes of our day that carry the curse of weapons of mass destruction over the face of the earth, containing chemical/nuclear power to kill and remain in a building consuming wood and stone. A mushroom shaped cloud represents what is visible when anatomic or nuclear bomb explodes. (Isa 2:1-21; Hosea 10:8;Rev. 6:14-17)

7) Zech 5:5-11 The Woman in the Basket:  In the Ancient Hebrew language the woman (esa) in the container with a lead cover represents a fire (ox-strong, teeth-consuming or devouring) revealed or that comes out. Lead is used to contain radioactive material. YHVH calls it “wickedness” borne on stork-like wings to build it a base in the land of Shinar (In ancient times in Babylonia or Babel). During the Gulf War against Saddam it was reported that weapons of mass destruction were being transported.  The word Shinar appears seven times in the Bible, pointing us to the Day of YHVH, this seventh Millennium. (Gen 10:10; 11:2; 14:1; 14:9; Isa 11:11; Dan 1:2; Zec 5:11)

8) Zech 6:1-8 The Four Chariots:   The Twin Towers attack of 9-11-2001 match the two mountains of brass (a man made alloy, not a natural mountain) at which time were revealed four chariots (war vehicles), representing the four planes that were used that day for violence, prompting the major war on terror. The four horses of the Day of YHVH were also released in this vision. When the two towers fell in the land where Ephraim, like Joseph, became fruitful he took his bow and went out conquering. (Gen 48:22; 49:24; 2 Kings 13:14-25;Rev 6:1-8)

If these eight visions are written in reverse order with the last being first and the first being last, then the first year of YHVH’s Day (the Day of the LORD or the LORD’s Day) in the 7th month (September– Sept is 7 in Latin) on the 11th of 2001 B.C.E. (2001 B.C.E. = 6001 From Creation) the eighth vision was fulfilled and proceeds to manifest accordingly. These are all events that occur in The Day of YHVH (the LORD). There have been foreshadows and types in history, but this is the premiere day. It occurs after two days (2000 years) from Mashiach’s first coming, when he revives his people and is also in the third day (in the 3rd Millennium) when the return (repentance)/revival and raising up or resurrection of the whole house of Israel (Ephraim & Yahudah) with their companions will occur. (Hosea 6:1-11)

Jubilee, The Final Emancipation of Israel

Jubilee!!! The Final Emancipation of Israel On this 4th day of July in the year 2016 C.E. (the 28th day of the 3rd month in the 6016th year from Adam and the 4000th year from Abraham), I proclaim that the final year of emancipation promised to our forefather Abraham has finally come. HalleluYah!!! Since the first lost sons were brought to the Isles of Bermuda in 1616 we have fulfilled the 400 year prophetic legacy of Joseph, son of Jacob, son of Ysrael (Israel). In the first major type and shadow of this year our ancestors saw the divine judgment of YHVH executed against Mtsrym (Egypt) and its idols. After 430 years, from Abraham until the 15th day of Unleavened Bread in the 2nd month, YHVH brought us up out of Egypt, out of the House of Bondage. YHVH did not allow Joseph’s bones to remain in Egypt. In Egypt we saw Joseph’s plight unfold as he experienced the Seven P’s that outlined his story. He went from Pride, to the Pit, to Potiphar, to Prison, to the Palace, to Praise, and finally to receive the Promise. In the Promise, it was foretold that Joseph through Ephraim would become a multitude of nations or gentiles (Gen 48). Ephraim along with his older brother, Manasseh would especially experience the seven P’s of Joseph’s legacy. However, Ephraim would bear the brunt of the yoke and burden in its fulfillment until the time it would be fulfilled in the promise made to Abraham in Genesis 15:12-16:

 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.  And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;  And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.  And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.  But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.  (Gen 15:12-16)

This year, 2016 C.E. (6016 from Adam), is this prophetic word fulfilled in the hearing of YHVH’s people. This year, on the Yom Kipurym (the Day of Atonement) which occurs in the seventh month on the 10th day, we can expect the Jubilee Trumpet to announce that 2017 (6017) is the beginning of the 3.5 year time of Jacob’s Trouble otherwise known as the Great Tribulation, when the bride of YHVH will again go into the wilderness as prophesied in Ezekiel 20:30-44, 37:1-28, and Jeremiah 16 and 23, Zech 1:1-6:3; 14:1-21; Matt 24:15-31; 1 Cor 10; and Rev 12:7-17. According to the prophesy given to Abram (Abraham) YHVH ELHYM (the LORD God) will bring judgment against the USA as he did against Egypt where Joseph served. In addition all nations shall experience the judgment of God. YHVH is calling all of Israel (Ysrael) to return (repent) to him, believe the Gospel of Messiah (Mashiach, Christ), and live life under his Royal Torah (Law) of Love and Liberty written in our hearts and minds as well as in the Scripture. The scripture on the Liberty Bell (Leviticus 25:10) the symbol of the abolition of slavery and persecution will now be fulfilled (2016-2017).

 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.  Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.  And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.  (Lev 25:8-10)
