How the Exodus and the Resurrection Align with Enoch’s Calendar

The influence of Enoch can be found throughout the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament. This Bible study shows that the book of Exodus and the Crucifixion and Resurrection provides some of the strongest evidence that the calendar revealed to Enoch is in force and supported by powerful events.

The “Revealed” calendar from the Enoch’s “Book of the Luminaries,” one of the books in I Enoch, sets pattern that persists from quarter to quarter and from year to year. The first day of the month is always on a solar event, that is, either an equinox or a solstice. The first day of the month always starts at sunset and is the fourth day of the week. Each month is thirty days long, and an extra day is added as the 31st day of the third month. There are exactly fifty-two weeks in each year.

The weekly Sabbaths are always on the same days of each quarter and the same days of the year. This means that if we know on what day of the month a weekly Sabbath occurs, then we can relate that to a position on the Revealed calendar. For example, if we read that a Sabbath is on the 16th day of the month, we know that would be the second month of the quarter. As noted, all quarter follow the same pattern.

Evidence from Exodus: First Month

Does what happened during the weeks before and after being delivered from Egypt, provide support for the Jewish lunar calendar or for the Revealed calendar given by the Messenger Uriel to Enoch?

In the Bible in Exodus 12 Eyahuwah begins to align the people of Israel with the revealed calendar. First He declares the start of the year: …

JESUS TOMB: Meaning of Symbols on Entrance

I promised Jonathan that I would give some material about the symbols found on the entrance to the tomb. It is not the “all-seeing eye” as some suppose.

First, understanding the meaning of the symbols does not add evidence to conclude or dismiss the theory that Jesus bones were put in the tomb along with Mary Magdalene, the son of Jesus, and Mary, Jesus’s brother, and others in the family.

Also the resurrection of the dead does not demand the gathering up of the pieces in an attempt to put the body back together. According to the Scriptures we will receive new bodies into which our spirits will be placed. The “resurrection of the body” is a myth. I don’t think anyone wants their old body back. I don’t.

PROPHECY: Part 6, The 1,335 Days Spans Two Ages!

In the first five posts of this Bible study series I explained the keys to understanding the mystery of the 1335 days. These include the calendar revealed to Enoch, the Feasts and High days revealed to Moses, and the periods of time for the end-of-the-age events that were revealed to Daniel and to John. I also showed the start and the end of the 1,335 days. Now learn why that day is so important!

[First] [Previous]

The 1,335 Days Prophecy Revealed

For the Master, Yahua, does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. Amos 3:7

The 1,335 begins with the death of the two-witnesses at the time when the beast was given power over the set-apart ones. He was given this power for the period that marks the last three and one half years of the seventh age, our age.

But the resurrection of the two-witnesses three and one half days later offers hope to the righteous and the elect, and the set-apart ones are encouraged to have patience during the last three and one half years, and to wait for the day that marks the end of the 1,335 day waiting period.

The death of the two-witnesses comes after another three and one half year period or 42 months during which they prophesied over the earth and its people. The day they were killed will be the same day as the Feast of Trumpets or Shouting, which is the first day of the seventh month on Enoch’s calendar, and this is also the fall equinox.

One thousand three hundred thirty five days from that High day takes us to another very important High Day on the 15th day of the third month during the first year of the Eighth Age.

Enoch’s year is counted as 360 days, regardless of how many actual days, as we experience them, occur during a solar year. Therefore 1,335 days is equal to 360 + 360 + 360 +180 + 30 + 30 +15.

Now lets study the events of that day as given to Moses in the Law or Torah

The final day of the 1,335 days occurs on the 15th day of the third month during the first year of the Eighth Age, after the beast and false prophet are destroyed and the righteous and elect are raised up from the dead. This day is a very special High Day and Feast.

This High Day is the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Firstfruits. Some call this “Pentecost.” This High Day is linked to a special day, known to very few, that happens after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven-day Feast that starts on the 15th day of the first month. The Feast of Unleavened Bread ends on sunset of the 21st day of the month.

Then on the first day of the following week, a Wave Sheaf offering is made, along with other sacrifices. Then starting from that day the people were to count seven complete weeks.

From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the Wave Offering, count off seven full weeks. Leviticus 23:15

This symbolizes the completion of the first seven “weeks” or ages given to Enoch by a vision. The very next day, after the seven weeks are complete, is the 50th day. This is also the “first day of the Eighth Week” and is the 15th day of the third month. It is called the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Firstfruits.

During the period starting from the day after the end of the Feast of Unleavened Bread until the Wave Sheaf offering the people were instructed by the Law:

And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim — a law forever throughout all your generations in all your dwellings. Leviticus 23

In other words, this was a time when NO grain was to be eaten. This is separate from the Feast of Unleavened Bread during which only unleavened bread was to be eaten, and that was for seven days. But during this short time of only four days, no grain, either roasted or new, was to be eaten.

Then, after a period that represents the seven “weeks” or ages of Enoch, another special offering was to be offered to “your Elohim.”

Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath, you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to Yahua.

From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour, baked with yeast, as a Wave Offering of Firstfruits to Yahua.

The Law describes other sacrifices for the day after the weekly Sabbath day during the Feast of Unleaved Bread. This is special first day of the week.

Yet even more sacrifices are required for the Feast of Firstfruits. None of the other Feast Days and High Days have such elaborate sacrificial duties.

On the first day of the week when the Wave Sheaf was offered:

And on the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yahua, and its grain offering: two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahua, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering of a hin of wine.

Then on the first day of the week which is the 15th day of the third month on the Feast of Firstfruits:

And beside the bread [the Wave Offering], you shall bring seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, and one young bull and two rams. They are a burnt offering to Yahua, with their grain offering and their drink offering, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to Yahua. And you shall offer one male goat as a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a peace offering. And the priest shall wave them, beside the bread of the first fruits, as a wave offering before Eyahuwah, besides the two lambs. They are set apart to Yahua for the priest.

If you were to evaluate the significance of a Feast and High day by the number and quality of the sacrifices made during that day, the Feast of Firstfruits ranks at the top!

As noted in other posts in this series, the coming fulfillment of the Feast of Firstfruits is one of the greatest days in the history of the human race.

In the future, at the end of the 1,335 days which is the Feast of Firstfruits, all who overcame the world (the seven lamps) during the prior seven ages of human life, will now come together, as the Wave Loaves, to ascend to Their Father and to Their Elohim, to be accepted into the Family, now as Sons of Elohim.

Eyahuwah/Eyahushuah (the one young bull) is the Firstfruit represented by the Wave Sheaf and the one perfect lamb, and He was sacrificed before the foundation of the world.

Then an innumerable mass of people from every tribe, language, and nation who washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, are the Firstfruits, represented by the Wave Loaves and the seven lambs.

The sacrifices is symbolic of the blood they all shed (a burnt offering or an offering made by fire), and the sin they overcame, and of the greatness of Elohim who, before the universe was created, had been looking forward to THIS DAY!

The Two Wave Loaves

When the two wave loaves are made they start as one pile of bread dough made with leaven. Leaven is a symbol of sin. At the right time the one pile of dough is cut into two identical loaves. This is a symbol of Man being separated into two: a male and a female. This was not by taking a single “rib.” The Hebrew literally means a “side.” From Man came both man and woman, male and female. Man was made in the image and likeness of Elohim. After the resurrection to eternal life there is no sexual distinction. The new immortal body is neither male or female. Therefore, the two Wave Loaves represent man and woman both taken from Man, and now ascending to their Father and to their Family Elohim as individual and equal Sons of EL.

This event is the BIG day for which we must cleanse ourselves and prepare, and having prepared, then we must earnestly wait for that day.

The promise is no heaven or hell after we die. It is eternal life as a member of the Family of Elahim, after the resurrection from the dead. It is on the 1,335 day that we ascend to our Father. Those who fail to prepare and do not believe the prophecies of this great news can only look forward to a resurrection to a time of judgment during which time they will learn the knowledge of Yahua. They will all be taught by Him! But they will have no part in the events at the end of the 1,335 days: The Feast celebrating the Firstfruits!

Here are some interesting insights to the Wave Sheaf and Loaves.

The Wave Sheaf is offered when the Seven Weeks [the world] begins:

And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear, knowing that you were redeemed [purchased] from your futile way of life inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless [perfect], foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes, who through Him believe in EL, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in EL! I Peter 1:17-21

What this is saying, and is supported by other Scriptures, is that the plan created before the universe began included the atoning and redeeming sacrifice. Therefore, the sacrifice that took place on Passover and the symbolic Wave Sheaf offering made on the first day of the week after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, establishes the symbol of the first “seven weeks” of human existence! So during this time we can observe both the actual events combined with the symbols.

This also applies to the events leading up to the Feast of Weeks/Firstfruits. Speaking both of the symbols and the actual fulfillment, after the end of the period of the “seven weeks”, a new age is established and the rule over the earth and its people is given to the righteous, those who overcame the world during the first seven ages. These, like their Brother, ascend and are presented to their Father and their Elohim [Family] at the Feast of Firstfruits. They all died not having received what was promised and they trusted EL to also raise them from grave. They like their Brother gained the right to be called the Sons of EL, only this time on the actual fulfillment day: the Feast of Firstfruits, which is the end of the 1,335 days!

While writing this Bible study I have been pouring over the book of Hebrews [IBRIM] because this understanding is its main subject. Here is just a sample from The Scriptures translation:

For it was fitting for Him, because of Whom all are and through Whom all are, in bringing MANY SONS to esteem, to make the Princely Leader of their deliverance perfect through sufferings. For both He who sets apart and those who are set-apart are all of One [FAMILY (NIV)], for which reason He is not ashamed to call them BROTHERS, saying, “I shall announce Your Name to My brothers, in the midst of the congregation I shall sing praise to You.”

Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself shared in the same, so that by means of His death He might destroy him having the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver those who throughout their life were held in slavery by fear death. For, doubtless, He does not take hold of messengers [angels], but He does take hold of the seed of Abraham!

So in every way He had to made like His brothers, in order to become a compassionate and trustworthy High Priest in matters relating to Elohim, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For in what He had suffered, Himself being tried, He is able to help those who are tried.

And as it awaits men to die once, and after this the judgment, so also the Messiah, having been offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to those waiting for Him, unto deliverance.

The cry of the people rings out to Elohim at the time of the death of the two witnesses (the two rams), who had been their help for three and one half years. The two-witnesses are raised up by Elohim after three and one half days to encourage the people who believed! Now the time of patience and waiting also begins until the return of Yahua/Yahushua who delivers his people on the first day of the first year of that age and raises them ALL from the dead. Seventy five days later, the waiting comes to an end at the Feast of Firstfruits, when the righteous ascend to their Father and their Elohim [Family].

The rest of people on earth look on feeling both sadness and mourning mixed with hope that at some time in the future they will be added to the highly esteemed Family of EL: Elohim.

What you have read in this six part series is the true meaning of the 1,335 days.

It is no longer sealed. We are now at the time in the history of humanity when these things will shortly come to pass. It is time now to prepare and get ready. It is a time to make straight paths for our feet.

PROPHECY: Part 1, Sealed Prophecies Reveal Shocking End-time Events

The end of the our age, the Seventh week of Enoch’s vision has now been made clear through the revelations given to Daniel and John the Apostle. For the first time these end time prophecies are unsealed.

[Next]

The key to unlocking the mystery of the ages lies in understanding the revelations that were at first given to our father Enoch, and then later to Daniel, and finally to the Apostle John. However, all of these things had been sealed up until the time of the “second end” — our time.

In this post and the next I will show the map of the events that bring us to the end of our age and the start of the Eighth age. This is a fascinating study, particularly because this subject has been a target of mindless speculations and traditions.

Enoch’s Calendar the Key to Prophecy

Some chafe at the idea that Enoch, the father of us all, could have any importance during our time. The desire for religious dominance over the mind of the masses has stupified the people into thinking that Enoch was “done away” because he was not part of the “Canon.” But Enoch prophesied that his words would be a part of understanding at this time in history. The key to prophecy is the 364 day calendar revealed to Enoch by the Messenger from Elahim, Uriel. This calender always starts on the fourth day of the week and on the spring equinox, the day when the length of the day is the same as the length of the night. The calendar has four quarters of ninety one days which is the same as thirteen weeks. Thus all quarters start on the fourth day of the week. To make this work out nicely, the last month in each quarter has thirty one days. The first and second months of the quarters have thirty days each.

Only 360 days of each year are to be counted. The last day of each quarter is not included in the counting as we shall see.

I explained in prior blogs how the earth’s year length was changed to 365.242 days, not by getting struck by a comet and slowing down the orbital speed (Velikovsky’s idea). But rather a change in the atmosphere caused the earth’s rotation speed to increase by a small amount. Up until the 1930′s scientists assumed that the earth’s rotation speed was an unchangeable constant, but that proved to be false. Today NASA and other scientists keep track of the changes of rotation speed and found that weather can either speed up or slow down the rotation. This continual observation is needed for calculating trajectories required for space exploration.

The change happened as a result of the great flood when the “waters above” the troposphere came back down to the earth, and like an ice skater pulling her arms in while doing a piroette, the earth rotated faster. We now have another intercalary day of 1.242 days at the end of Enoch’s year, but each yeaer still starts on the spring equinox whether we believe or not.

Daniel’s Messages from Gabriel

Like Enoch, who received the calendar from Uriel, Daniel, from the messenger Gabriel, received periods of time expressed as days. Daniel was given these messages:

The first message sets the context and then jumps to the time of trouble at the end of our age:

Out of one of them came another horn [kingdom], which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land [Israel]. It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. It set itself up to be as great as the Prince of the host. It took away the daily sacrifice from him, and the place of his sanctuary was brought low. Because of the rebellion, the host [armies] of the chosen and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.

Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, “How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled — the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, and the surrender of the sanctuary and of the host that will be trampled underfoot?”

He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings, then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.”

Evening and morning is the same as one day as we learn from Genesis 1 where the very same expression in the Hebrew is used. Now for those who want to convert these to year: hold off. No where was Daniel told to count “a day for a year.” Ezekiel was because he was instructed to act out something and each day of his duty was to count for one year of actual time. For those who have my book, I am making changes now to make this clear. It was this “day for year” misapplication of the 2,303 evenings and mornings that led some to think that “a rapture” was to happen on June 12. Sometimes people go to great lengths to deceive themselves.

As we shall see, the expression “evening and morning” is an actual day in time on Enoch’s calendar. The difference is that it includes the intercalary days which are not counted other wise. The daily sacrifice was to be carried out for each day regardless of its place on the calendar. These then are actual days as counted by sunsets and sunrises as opposed to calendar days that only count 360 days per year.

While I, Daniel, was watching the vision and trying to understand it, there before me stood one who looked like a man. And I heard a man’s voice from the Ulai [river] calling, “Gabriel, tell this man the meaning of the vision.”

As he came near the place where I was standing, I was terrified and fell prostrate. “Son of man,” he said to me, “understand that the vision concerns the time of the end.”

As noted, many mistakes in understanding resulted from trying to “understand” this vision by converting the 2,300 evenings and mornings to years. We are not going to make that mistake, because this vision concerns our time and the end of our age.

He [Gabriel] said, “I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath because the vision concerns the appointed time of the end.”

“The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia [Iran]. The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horm between his eyes is the first king [Alexander]. The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will not have the same power.”

This sets the context but not the time. The four kingdoms are the Seleucid empires that took over that region after Alexander. The presence of the four kingdoms has remained. And the vision now jumps to our time:

“In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men [armies] and the holy [chosen] people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they [the rebels] feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed but not by human power.

“The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given to you is true, but seal up the vision for it concerns the distant future.” Daniel 8 NIV

That “distant future” is now.

This is the first time period that will become part of the end-time schedule. The others follow.

Daniel 9: The End of the Sixth Age

Enoch wrote the Sixth Age:

And after that in the Sixth Week all who live in it shall be blinded. And the hearts of all of them shall godlessly forsake wisdom. And it it a man shall ascend. And at its close the house of dominion shall be burnt with fire, and the whole race of the chosen root shall be dispersed.

The ninth chapter of Daniel concerns another time of the end: the end of the sixth age. This ninth chapter has been mistakenly used to point to the coming of Jesus. However, once again, the truth has been set aside for tradition and fables. Daniel was never told that the seventy weeks were to be expanded to 490 years. Instead, the Hebrew says that the weeks were to be divided up, intersected, or parsed to fit events. It serves as an example of how Daniel’s other visions were to be used.

Briefly, Agrippa was the one who made an agreement or covenant with the mighty, the Romans. They then laid seige against Jerusalem and a war started that was to last for seven years. During the midst of that seven the sacrifices ceased and the temple was burned to the ground. After the seven years war ended, for sixty-two years the Romans occupied Jerusalem. They made it into an army camp complete with “ditches” or latrines.

Near the end of the sixty-two weeks, a “messiah” came on the scene and began a rebellion of the Jews against the Romans. Rabbi Akiba called the man, Simon Bar Kochba, the “Son of the Star” and declared him to be the promised messiah. For three and one-half years they fought against the Romans making the Roman occupation miserable. But the Romans prevailed and defeated the rebels and the Jews suffered huge losses. Bar Kochba was cut off in the “middle of a week” of years and found hiding in a cave in En-Gedi with no one to help him. At the end of 69 of the 70 weeks, it was over. The people of the Jews were dispersed and forbidden to enter Jerusalem and were “encouraged” to flee the country. The sixth age ended as Enoch and Daniel saw in their visions and recorded for our day.

Daniel 12: The End of the Age Prophecies

Along with Zechariah 14, Daniel 12 is one of the most direct prophesies about the end of the age, our age. The information in this chapter needs to be combined with the information of the eighth chapter and with some material from John’s visions. With that we can create the time line of end time events.

There is some confusion about the remaining week of Daniel 12. Some call what I am about to write, the “lost week theory.” Those who object to this are usually the same who defend the “day for a year” notion of Daniel 9 to try to make it point to Jesus. But Daniel’s vision of the weeks is clear in stating that the “70 weeks” must be intersected or divided up as the Hebrew word explains. No expansion is even suggested. Instead it is only assumed. In fact, there is little hard evidence even from the New Testament as to how long Jesus’ ministry was. Was it one year – from Passover to Passover – as John seems to suggest? Or could it have been three and one half years as some say Daniel 9 means? But then that cannot be substantiated either, and when we apply that “theory” we have the tail wagging the dog.

For our purposes here, we can use the one week that was “cut out” or “divided” from the other weeks and apply it to our time. After all, the weeks of Daniel 9 were to be applied to the People, and not to an individual. The gospel writer said concerning Daniel, “Let the reader understand.” And so we will.

[Next post in this series]

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS: Rapture, Enoch, Ages, Hebrew, Paul

From time to time, I will write posts with answers to some of the most asked questions. This is the first of such posts.

Q. Do you believe in the rapture?

A. The “rapture” has no basis in the Bible. Although some words of Jesus are allegorically attached to the idea of a rapture, the context of those words contradicts such ideas. Paul, the Pharisee, is most often quoted in support of the rapture theory. Based on all scriptures and excluding Paul’s epistles, the prophecies foretell the resurrection at the return of Eyahuwah/Eyahushuah to the earth. He only returns, according to prophecies, after a three and one half period during which time the world, under the influence of a false “messiah,” tries to exterminate the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the righteous. The idea that the “church” will be taken off the earth during that time is not supported by scriptures. And even though there are promises of protection for the righteous those promises include death with the promise of the resurrection to eternal life. Based upon what the Scriptures, including the prophets and true apostles, teach, I find no reason to believe in a man-made fictional notion about this “us verses them” idea.

Q. Why do you quote from the Book of Enoch?

A. The Book of Enoch was rejected by the “church” in order to keep it out of the hands of the masses. The Book of Enoch, also known as I Enoch, contains prophecies that transcend the entire history of humanity. It is referred in passages in the Torah and is quoted by the true apostles. Moses knew what he was called to do in Egypt because it was written in the Book of Enoch. Jethro was a priest who may have brought this to Moses attention. but it is also possible that the Book of Enoch could have been in the Egyptian libraries and read by Moses while he was under tutelage. The book of Enoch is a key to all of the prophecies of not only the Hebrew scriptures, but also the writings of the apostles. Enoch prophesied that his words would be read during our time. Copies of his books were found in Ethiopia and buried in the caves at Qumran with the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Q. I thought we were living in the sixth age. What happened?

A. This idea comes from the a misapplication of scriptures where a day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day. This then is confused with Enoch’s vision of the “weeks” or ages. Then some, without even reading Enoch, assume that Enoch is writing about a “week” of “days” and that the millennium is the “sabbath” in that week. Enoch never wrote such a thing nor can this be found in any other scripture. Enoch wrote that there would be seven weeks or ages, starting from Adam, wherein humanity would struggle under confusion, deception, and corrupt governments and religions. Some of the ages were marked by events that were to take place at the close of the ages. The sixth and seventh ages had closing events. The sixth age ended in 135 AD with the dispersion of the people of Judea as prophesied by Enoch concerning the end of that age. We are now living in the seventh age, which is called in his prophecy the “Age of Apostasy.” Considering all the religions that marked the time from 135 CE to today, it is very clear that Enoch’s prophecies are being fulfilled. The eighth age or week of Enoch’s vision will be an age of righteous rule over all the nations of the earth. Eyahuwah will return to become the King of kings, and the Master of masters.

Q. Why do you not quote from Paul’s epistles?

A. When I was young and doing my initial studies, I spent most of those early years studying the writings of Paul. At one point I read the entire book of Ephesians every day for one month. As the years went on, I became more sensitive to some of the questions and problems that began to appear in my studies. Then I found that my doubts and questions were confirmed by hundreds of writers and theologians. Paul was, perhaps, the most highly trained Pharisee of his day. His teachings and his rants were a product of his training. His writings sounded like the complaints of a cranky old man. But the big question was this: Why did none of the apostles’ teachings agree with Paul? They were not followers of Paul, and they had serious questions about his authenticity both as a teacher and as an apostle. If the apostles did not borrow anything from Paul, where did their teachings come from? The answer was obvious: from the Law or Torah, and from the Prophets and Writings of the Hebrew Scriptures! It is in them that the true Gospel can be found. But didn’t Paul quote from them? Yes, but it became obvious that, as a true Pharisee, Paul replaced the teachings of the Hebrew Scriptures with his own “private interpretations.” Instead of teaching what Jesus/Eyahushuah and the apostles taught, he replaced them and created a religion and led the world into following him. From then on the words of Jesus were fulfilled: “Multitudes will come in My Name, saying that I am the Messiah, and will deceive the masses.” Also as a result of Paul’s efforts the Age of Apostasy, revealed to Enoch, emerged in full force to this day. Why would this be allowed? So that righteous would shine like stars during this time of darkness and deception.

Q. Why do you use Hebrew transliterations?

A. I studied both Greek and Hebrew. The most popular language was Greek as most non-Jewish students of the Bible seem to have little interest in the Hebrew Scriptures. “After all, did not Paul teach that the law was done away?” Greek is a philosophical [Greek: "friend of wisdom"] language. It is definitely NOT theological. It has only one word for which the Hebrew has many. Hebrew is the most theological language that ever existed. From its very beginning, as evident in the pictograph letters, Hebrew paints a picture of the relationship of EL, ELAH, the ELAHIM, and EYAHUWAH and the people. The names of the leaders and prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures contain clues about them and their relationship with ELAH. I find it to be much wiser to understand the actual names used in the Hebrew Scriptures in references to the Almighty. I also prefer to use “The Scriptures”, a translation by the Institute for Scripture Research. Although, even it has problems, in particular with their inconsistency when referring to ELAH and the plural as “Elohim” instead of ELAHIM. Most English translations suffer because they use only “God” or “Lord” to translate the names and this hides or even obscures the meaning in the Hebrew. These names and others in Hebrew should be understood and known. Also one must keep in mind that the addition of “vowel” markings around the tenth century CE ironically introduced a pronunciation of Hebrew with a heavy accent. Also the assumption that Hebrew letters are only consonants is false. Like other languages and prior to the use of vowel markings, some letters were vowels including all the letters in the Tetragrammatron [ee - ah - oo - ah].

GOSPEL: Reflections on Death and Dying

Two years ago, I received a phone call from my mother. She wanted to give me a “heads up” message that she had been informed by her doctor that she had terminal cancer and didn’t have long to live.

After the call ended I immediately called my sons and daughter to give them the news. But I also told them that I wanted them make plans for them and their children to fly to Ohio to visit their great-grandparents as this might be the last chance for them to see their children and the childrens’ children, and their great-grandchildren. I cleared the path with my Mother and Father so that we could come together on Memorial Day weekend. My youngest son provided the air transportation using the many air miles he had accumulated.

My mother had also just found out, because my father said nothing about it, that he had been on chemotherapy for his own cancer.

My three brothers and their wives also came and we had a grand, four generation reunion. My children stayed on with their children for a week, while the rest of us returned home after memorial day. But before we left photos and videos were taken of the party and a classic four-generation photo was taken which you see on the right.

During the week my Mother did something that she had always dreamed about. She had a chance to talk to each of her offspring alone and in person. My Dad spent time with each of the kids but more in a group as they worked around the yard pulling weeds and helping in his work shop.

My Mom and Dad could not stop talking about that short time, and every time we called back, my Dad, whose memory was failing, kept telling stories about seeing all his children.

In September I got a call. It from my youngest brother. He said that Dad had died, but that wasn’t quite true. He had a case of sleep apnea that scared everybody. That was on Monday, on Friday he had been taken to the hospital were he died very early Saturday morning. I immediately got on a plane and flew back to Ohio.

My brothers and I, along with some family friends, were going to speak at his funeral service. On the flight over my mind raced through so much material that I found it difficult to focus on what to say. But I knew that what people need to hear under those circumstances was the greatness of our future, the tremedous hope that we all have, and that my Dad would stand on his feed once again with his offspring and relatives in the greatest family reunion the people would ever experience. I told how he would wake up and find himself standing looking at his body and how that body look similar to his old body but it felt different. In fact, it was young, vibrant, full of health.

Afterward, we went back to the house where we engaged in a talk. My brothers picked up on different things that I said in my short speech. I learned that no matter how careful I craft a speech, people pick up on different things. Sometimes they talk about things that they “heard” that I didn’t say! But this time we talked about matters on a spiritual level that happens only under special circumstances. At one point my youngest brother expressed feelings of anguish over my Dad’s death. I told him that there was nothing to fear and to look forward to the hope that promises peace, health, and well-being in the future. My Mom sat and listened to our conversation, and then started to cry. She said that she felt that someone placed hands on her shoulders to comfort her and that moved her both emotionally and spiritually. I told them that everything was good, that there is more hope for us all than we could ever imagine.

On the evening before the day I was to return home. My mother and I sat at the kitchen table. I asked her how she felt and was there anything that she had hoped that she could accomplish in her life. She chuckled and said, “Well, I really wanted to live to be 100 years old.” I asked her if she would like to pray? She said yes and I put my hand on her head and prayed that she would receive strength and courage during this time of struggle and loneliness. She had known my Dad since she was fifteen years old. Their marriage lasted more than sixty years. Then my Mom prayed and as she always did, she requested, “Your will be done.” As far as she was concerned that was all she wanted from her teenage years.

I told her that everything was “Ok” and that not to fear or be worried about anything. And that we were all there to help her. I also said, “Don’t be afraid to get out and visit with her friends as often as she could.” And she agreed. The next day before I left, I gave her a big hug and just held her. I told her again that I loved her and not to worry or be afraid.

This was a deeply spiritual time for all of us. And it was a time of hope and joy.

After I got home, I called several times just to check up and see how Mom was doing. Nothing had changed. She continued to get worse. Then about the middle of December, I got a call from my mother. My brother place the call for her. She said she had made a list of people to call to say “Goodbye.” I was the first on the list. I told her that I was proud of her, that we loved her very much, and that she showed great faith and courage in making this call. I said that everything was going to be fine. My wife also talked with her, and then, we all cried together.

During the days that followed, I got a few calls. Mom was complaining that she was still alive. She would sit in her rocking chair and try to will herself to die. But she kept waking up. Then one morning she started to tease my brothers, and laugh with them. Then she said she was tired and wanted to sleep. She fell asleep and died laughing. That was my Mom.

For some reason she died 91 days after my Dad died. You might have heard in one of my posts that 91 days is exactly one quarter on Enoch’s calendar. When I brought this to the attention of my brothers, they were also surprised to learn that.

Prophecies about our future life

In my posts, I wrote and spoke about the times of great trouble ahead. The earth must be prepared for the life that it will support in the future. When it is ready, millions, if not billions, of people will be raised from the dead to stand once again on the earth. We will not receive our old bodies. Instead our spirits will be placed in new bodies specifically custom made for each of us. Some bodies will be spiritual bodies. Others will have physical bodies but new, fresh with no pollutants, poisons or radiocarbon to shorten lifespan. Others will survive the distress and death of the old world to the new world with their old bodies.

This is a great time for humanity. No religion of this current time will survive to the next age. Those who are still looking for the “true” church or “true” religion should give up in that futile quest. Instead we must all prepare spiritually for what lies ahead. Physical death is our lot. If we can learn to embrace it with a view to the hope that we have been promised, we should not be afraid. All of us have much to learn about the promises made to our fathers and the prophecies revealed to the Prophets and Apostles.

The earth must be restored to its original structure with waters above, increased land, pollutants and radiocarbon cleansed from the air and food supply. This requires a cosmic event of immense power. The moon will turn to blood, the sun darkened, and the stars disappear from view, and meteor shows fill the sky. Then heat will be so strong that the oceans will become so warm that great clouds of steam will carry water to the stratosphere. The rotation speed of earth will slow down. When all this is done, the scriptures say that there will be few people left. Then we will see the coming of the Son of Man, of Eyahuwah, and he will raise the righteous and the chosen, his people, from the dead and gather them from all around the earth. Then He will fight against those who persecuted the righteous and tried to wipe nations from the face of the earth and the righteous will witness His victory. His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives. Then new life begins for all. The Righteous Kingdom comes to earth.

The resurrection into this new life is the greatest hope of all human kind. When we understand the good news and the hope, death has no power over us. These are the promises that gave our fathers hope. The good news did not start with Jesus (Eyahushuah) and the Apostles. It was known to our father Enoch when he saw in a vision what was planned to happen before the stars, heavens, and the earth were made.

Even though it is a shock for us to lose our body, it is not the end of our existence. But our worn-out, sick, and polluted old body is not something to hang on to, instead we can let it go looking to the hope that our spirit will be placed in a new, clean, and pure body in our next waking moment. The soul or nephesh is us. But when the spirit leaves, the body dies. The body without the spirit is dead. So the soul is no more. The spirit goes back to Elah who gave it, back to the one called “The Lord of Spirits.” Then when the new body is prepared for each of us (“A body you have prepared for me” Heb. 10:5), our spirits will be placed into the new body and we will stand on our feet.

And in this mountain, Eyahuwah of hosts shall make for all people a feast of choice pieces, a feast of old wines, of choice pieces with marrow, of old wines, well-refined. And He shall swallow up on this mountain, the surface of the covering, which covers all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.

He shall swallow up death forever, and the Master Eyahuwah shall wipe away tears from all faces, and take away the reproach of His people from all the earth. For Eyahuwah has spoken.

And it shall be said in that day, “See! This is our Elahim. We have waited for Him, and He saves us. This is Eyahuwah. We have waited for Him. Let us be glad and rejoice in His deliverance.” Isaiah 25:6-8

Who says the God of the Scriptures doesn’t care about the people?

END TIME: The Myth of the Rapture

There are a number of pages on the Internet regarding speculation that the “Rapture” may happen in 2008. Is this for real? What is behind this notion? Can it be supported by Scripture?

[Post published on May 14, 2007]

If you have been reading the posts in this blog you should have picked up on the fact that both Christianity and Judaism are heavily influenced by teachings and practices that came from Babylon.

From the time shortly after the flood Babylon was founded as a great spiritual and political empire. Although when we look at Iraq today, we do not get that impression. Nor should we. The physical greatness that was once Babylon has been destroyed. In fact, the city of Babylon is a ruin.

The spiritual influence of the once great Babylon and Babylonian Empire lives on today in nearly every religion on earth!

What does that mean for us?

As I explained in earlier posts, the people of Judah were taken captive and transported to Babylon where they lived for seventy years before they were allowed to return. That is a couple of generations.

Very few of the original captives lived long enough to be among those who returned.

However, what happened to the people of Judah while they were there has to this day affected both those who call themselves Christians and those who adhere to the traditions of Judaism.

During that time a group of lay men formed the sect of the Pharisees. This was an intellectual group who actually were influential enough to coerce the people to follow them, their view of the law, and to relegate the Levites and Priests to a token position having little or no teaching influence on the people.

The Pharisees developed a program of teaching new converts to Phariseeism and wrote a five and one half million word document called the Babylonian Talmud upon which they based their religion.

They also adopted the Babylonian calender as their own imposing the feasts and set apart days upon it instead of the solar calendar. They even kept the Babylonian names of the months.

What does all this have to do with a supposed “[pre-tribulation] Rapture?”

The assumption that the Christian religion was a departure from the sect of the Pharisees is only partly true. The Christian religion did reject the Talmuds, but a more deadly plot was hatched against the followers of Jesus: infiltration by a Pharisee whose primary task was to destroy the followers of Jesus by torture and death.

But on his way to carry out his mission he had a new idea. His plot included injecting his own interpretations (a Pharisee trick) and replacing the teachings of Jesus and the apostles with rituals, practices, and traditions that were “less burdensome.” This, of course, is Saul Paulus, one of the most highly trained Pharisees of his day. A brilliant man who brought in deadly heresies that resulted in the creation of new religion that drew followers to him and away from Jesus and the apostles.

From overly zealous revival preachers in the 1800s, comes the idea of the “Rapture.” This idea was never a part of Christianity prior to that time.

The Hebrew Scriptures, the Book of Enoch, the book of Revelation, and Jesus’ prophecies and teachings only tell about the resurrection. These all refer to the people coming back to life in new mortal bodies or in immortal bodies.

Ezekiel prophesied about the resurrection of the “Whole House of Israel.” This includes the descendants of all of the sons of Jacob, who were not Jews, but Israelites. But those from Jacob’s son Judah, later called Jews, will be raised with their cousins from Reuben, Joseph, Dan, and all the other tribes associated with them.

These will be raised from the dead because of the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and to the Nations of Israel through Eyahuwah, Moses, and the Prophets, and in regard to the promises given to the whole world because of the part the Israelites will play in the next ages.

But Christians want to believe in the rapture so badly that they are willing to risk anything to hold on to this doctrine.

Paul formed a supercult. Embedded in his teaching is an “us-versus-them” mentality that is easily picked up from his letters. Included in those are icons. He made the Greek name “Jesus Christ” an icon. He also made his letters an icon, and there is evidence that Paul played a large role in wresting the Aramaic and Hebrew documents away from the apostles and replaced them with his own Greek versions creating the icon of the Greek New Testament.

The book of Acts is not the “Acts of the Apostles.” It is the “Acts of Paul” wherein he even made himself an icon. His followers to this day view everything through Paul’s special dark glasses. Nearly all worship services or Bible studies include references to Paul, and this is tragic!

Those who concentrate on Paul’s letters and stories usually have no idea what the Prophets can teach us. They also lack the great truths contained in the Law.

They build churches based on rules (Phariseeism) and condemn others who do not think as they do. Rather than opening their hearts to understanding and wisdom, they hang on to fables and conceive falsehoods.

They claim that if they had lived during the time of Jesus, they would not have condemned him as the Pharisees did, and by saying this they testify against themselves that they are the offspring of those who killed the prophets.

The idea that a “rapture” would come in 2007 was based on speculation that something must happen after 40 years elapsed since the Jews took control of Jerusalem and the Temple mount in 1967. The conclusion that many made is that the event must be the supposed “rapture.” Now after that time passed, the next theory was that a “rapture” will happen on the Jewish Feast of Trumpets on the Jewish Calendar in September of 2007. That time also passed with no “catching away” causing an epidemic of automobile and plane crashes as drivers and pilots suddenly get swept off to heaven.

There is a tragic misreading of Jesus’ statements that two working in a field and one is taken and the other left. And two would be working at a mill and one is taken and the other left. Which one in these two incidents lives and which dies? This is from Matthew 24:40-41. They speculate that the one that is “taken” is “raptured” away. And they conveniently ignore the statements just prior to these verses that set up these comments:

And as the days of Noah, so also shall the coming of the Son of Man be. [This they assume to be the time of their supposed rapture].

For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away. So also shall the coming of the Son of Man be. Matthew 24:37-39!

So who died?

The ones who were taken away.

Who lived?

Those that were left!

Noah knew what was happening. He understood the prophecies and he testified to that by building a large barge on dry land to hold his family and a select group of creatures. Noah and his family were the only ones left alive. The flood took all the others away.

Will a “rapture” come in 2008, or 2009, or any year prior to the first day of the Eighth Age?

Nope.

The “rapture” is defined as “A Theological term not used in the Bible.”

But “Resurrection,” “raise up out of their graves,” “stand on their feet,” “many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth wake up” are found in the Scriptures. So rather than doting upon a non-scriptural Theological notion, learn what this means:

Blessed is he [or she] who is waiting earnestly, and comes to the one thousand three hundred thirty five days.

This is reference to the time at the end of this age and into the beginning of the next age. It covers the three and one-half years of the great tribulation, and ends in the Eighth age on a very special Feast and High Day!

Those who cling to the notion of a “pre-tribulation rapture” will not know until the end comes and takes them all away.

Other than the resurrection of the two witnesses, there is only one end of the age resurrection prophesied in the Scriptures.

Protection is promised for those whose “names are written in the book” and those who receive the seal from Elahim, and those who are victorious during the time of tribulation. Belonging to a religion, sect, cult, or whatever offers only tribulation until one knows and acts on the truth that will set him or her free.

For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we made known to you the power and coming of our Master Eyahushuah, the Messiah, but were eyewitnesses of his superbness. For when he received respect and esteem from Elah, the Father, such a voice came to him the Excellent Esteem, “This is My Son, the Beloved in whom I delight.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the set-apart mountain.

And we have the prophetic word made more certain, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture came to be of one’s own interpretation, for prophecy never came by the desire of man, but men of Elahim spoke being moved by the set-apart Spirit. 2 Peter 1:16-21 The Scriptures

END TIME: Prophecy Reveals End of Middle East Conflict (Podcast)

What if the United States armed forces pull out of Iraq? Will that create a world where people no longer kill each other? Or will this create a vacuum that will be filled by an Empire that will expand world warfare and threaten all life on earth?

Using a “rondo” style, this podcast describes future events that will rock the earth. The good news of next age has a prelude that requires that the people return to their roots and that the earth be restored so that people can live long lives in peace.

END TIME: Mars Polar Meltdown Testifies To Solar Cause For Global Warming

In my book, Prophecy Unsealed, I wrote about changes in the earth’s history. One change that caused the earth’s rotation to speed up was the transfer of “waters above” from the stratosphere back down to the earth. This was a major contributor to a global flood, along with earthquakes and volcanic activity. But how did the water originally wind up in the stratosphere?

And Elahim (Elohim) said, “Let an expanse come to be in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And Elahim made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it came to be so. Genesis 1:6-7

Paul LaViolette, in his book, Earth Under Fire, Humanity’s Survival of the Apocalypse, provided evidence that showed that our solar system and both the The Earth and Mars were subjected to intense heat from the sun as a result of an enormous cosmic dust cloud that came from the center of our galaxy. Evidence of this dust cloud was buried deep with the ice that covers Greenland. A high count of dust particles had to come from the solar system as nothing on earth could account for their presence. The cosmic dust was drawn into the sun by gravity causing the sun to generate tremendous heat sufficient enough to cause the waters on earth to boil and be separated as told in Genesis, and for water on Mars to come to its surface. After Mars cooled down carbon dioxide formed into the polar cap, which has been melting down for the last 5 years.

The Aztecs projected that at some time in the future, the earth would be subjected to an event that would forever change life on earth. This event was the passing of our solar system through the equator of our galaxy. This was predicted to happen during the year 2012 on our current calendar.

The equator of our galaxy is believed to be a “hot zone” of energy and a source of both cosmic rays and cosmic dust. The sun’s solar wind normally keeps the cosmic dust away from the solar system. But cosmic rays of sufficient strength push against the sun’s wind and if strong enough would allow the dust clouds to penetrate and to be absorbed by the sun. The result is higher solar temperatures and enlarged solar flares.

Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says

Kate Ravilious
for National Geographic News

February 28, 2007

Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet’s recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human-induced—cause, according to one scientist’s controversial theory.

Earth is currently experiencing rapid warming, which the vast majority of climate scientists says is due to humans pumping huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Mars North Pole image

Mars, too, appears to be enjoying more mild and balmy temperatures.

In 2005 data from NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide “ice caps” near Mars’s south pole had been diminishing for three summers in a row.

Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of space research at St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.

“The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars,” he said.

Solar Cycles

Abdussamatov believes that changes in the sun’s heat output can account for almost all the climate changes we see on both planets.

Mars and Earth, for instance, have experienced periodic ice ages throughout their histories.

“Man-made greenhouse warming has made a small contribution to the warming seen on Earth in recent years, but it cannot compete with the increase in solar irradiance,” Abdussamatov said.

By studying fluctuations in the warmth of the sun, Abdussamatov believes he can see a pattern that fits with the ups and downs in climate we see on Earth and Mars.

Abdussamatov’s work, however, has not been well received by other climate scientists. [Surprise! Surprise!]

Prophets paint a picture of solar problems at the end of the age

Although we look at global warming as a political problem, long ago the Prophets saw it as a cosmic event to be brought upon a rebellious and hard-hearted people. But today, neither scientists, politicians, nor the common public would even dare to consider that what the Prophets said might mean something for our day and time. But those who questioned and discounted the Prophets before have invariably been proven wrong.

At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness will come toward the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse, even a full wind from those places shall come for me: now also will I give sentence against them. Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe to us! for we are spoiled.

O Jerusalem, wash your heart from wickedness, that you may be saved. How long shall your vain thoughts lodge within you? For a voice declares from Dan, and publishes affliction from mount Ephraim. Make mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah. As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she has been rebellious against me, says Eyahuwah (YHWH). Your way and your doings have procured these things to you; this is your wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reaches to your heart.

My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet? For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have no understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

I saw the earth, and it was without form and void; and the heavens had no light. I looked at the mountains and they trembled and all the hills were swaying. I looked and there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens had fled. I saw the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of Eyahuwah, and by his fierce anger.

For thus has Eyahuwah said, “The whole land shall be desolate; yet I will not make a full end. For this shall the earth mourn and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.” Jeremiah 4:11-28

Also the Prophet Joel was given a vision of this time.

Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of Eyahuwah comes, for it is nigh at hand. A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong. There has never been the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. Joel 2:1-6, 10

Isaiah, also told about this time, yet in our future:

Howl! For the day of Eyahuwah (Yahweh) is at hand. It shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be faint, and every man’s heart will melt: And they will be afraid: pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman that travails: they will be amazed one at another; their faces will be as flames.

Behold, the day of Eyahuwah comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of Eyahuwah of armies, and in the day of his fierce anger.

And even more specific as to a sequence of events, Eyahushuah (Yashua, Yushuah, Jesus) gave this prophecy to his disciples:

And immediately after the distress of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars of heaven shall fall from the sky, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man shall appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming on clouds of heaven with power and much esteem. Matthew 24:29-30.

According to the prophecies, and from what is beginning to happen in our solar system, we are coming to a time of great trouble on the earth, even to the point of utter distinction. And, in spite of the political talk, there is little we can do to stop, by human power, what is coming upon the earth. We need a Savior who can stop both the wars and the powers of the heavens from consuming all life from this planet.

Also, in order for the earth to be restored to its optimum condition for physical life forms to thrive, and to restore the earth back to its original 364 day year, there must be a repeat of the Genesis event as noted above.

Even the planet Mars is beginning to feel the heat, and it is not coming from our planes, trains and automobiles.

END-TIME: Now is the Time to Receive Revelation from the Father in Heaven

Along with the gift of spiritual discernment is the gift of received revelations. This doesn’t happen to many, but it can be yours if you know what it takes. Jesus (Eyahushuag) told Peter that he was blessed because “This was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.”

“Man” thinks that to receive the Father’s revelation, all we need to do is go to a school supported by our brand of religion. Then after putting in our time and passing the tests we are “fully equipped” and we understand everything. We start as a beginner and after “proper” training we may become ordained or otherwise “qualified” to begin teaching others what we learned in our training.

However, without the revelation that does not come from human effort, chances are we are now worse off than we were before because we assume that we now know something from our training. Those who have gone through this process, regardless of the religion, instead of now seeing, become blind. What they observe now passes through a “darkened glass” filter. They look at all things in the context of the their training. Instead of being free, they become slaves to their religion and to its peer pressure.

What is it that we really want: recognition by humans that we are “approved” to perform religious acts in a way that is acceptable to them? Or should we rather desire to be approved by the Father and by the Elahim ( Elohim ), and have eyes that see and ears that hear, even if that means that the rest of the world doesn’t see things your way and cannot hear what you say?

The problem is that we have been conditioned all our life to conform and to be agreeable. Therefore, we must check our brains along we our overcoats when we enter into a religious meeting. We dare not question our teachers because we assume that they are going to watch over us and take care of our religious needs, and we don’t have to do anything except believe.

Then when we become part of a religious group we join with the teachers in spirit and become those who also watch out to make sure that any who disagree are “properly dealt with.” Also, in some religions, we must be actively involved in converting “unbelievers.” And when we do convert someone, we pride ourselves with the idea that we must belong to the “true church” or “true religion” because someone new “agrees” with us.

It is a trap.

And, it is deception of enormous scope.

This is a problem with all religions, including yours. It is not limited to Christianity, nor to Judaism. Anyone afflicted with this “disease” or “mind virus” described above, is in a very bad position spiritually. Consequently, this raises a serious question: What will it take for them to come to their senses and have eyes that see and ears that hear and come out of this spiritual prison?

Only a strong hand from the Source of Truth and Life.

Whatever we put our trust in to save us from trouble that is not the truth will come to an end. False saviors will be shown for what they are as their pride, whether it is a religious structure, government, traditions, sets of old man-made books, and teachings both “oral” and written, is destroyed. What remains will be righteousness, truth, and the knowledge of Eyahuwah.

And that is good.

Everything on earth is going to be shaken and the only thing that will remain will be righteousness and truth. This is the prophecy, from Scripture, concerning the time in which we now live.

“In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all the nations.”

In the Hebrew Scriptures are the writings of Prophets. All of these had the gift of revelation and they received and recorded these revelations given to them by either messengers (Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel) or by spiritual revelation from Eyahuwah ( YHWH, Yahweh. ) Nearly all of the prophecies tell of the end of the ages and the new age that is coming upon us. It is not necessary for us to receive “new” prophecies, as some do. Rather, we need to understand what has already been revealed. Making new prophecies, in religious meetings, is more like a parlor trick, particularly, when those making these do not understand the material contained in the writings of the Prophets or the Law (Torah).

The Prophet covered the time from Samuel, before the 12 tribes of Israel became a nation, to the return of the House of Judah from exile in Babylonia. The people during that time kept wandering away from the Law and had turned to Baalism and other religions of the nations around them. When the House of Judah was taken captive and exiled in Babylon, the also departed from the Law and the Prophets and created their own law, which was a derivative of the Law of Moses. This replaced the Law and has maintained that position to this day. This, they said, was the oral law of Moses, but when read with wisdom it is clear that it contradicts Moses and lays upon the people rules and regulations, which are impossible to keep.

The Babylonian captivity was a turning point in the spiritual life of the people. What at one time was a spiritual relationship with Elah (Eloah) was replaced with a religion full of rules and regulations that caused the people to become defiled. The three post-exilic prophets, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi delivered these revelations to the now unclean people:

“So it is with this people and this nation in my sight. Whatever they do and whatever they offer there is defiled.” Haggai 2: 14.

The people of Bethel had sent Sharezer and Regem-Melech, together with their men, to entreat Eyahuwah by asking the priests of the house of Eyahuwah Almighty and the Prophets, “Should I mourn and fast in the fifth month, as I have done for many years?”

Then the word of Eyahuwah Almighty came to me, “Ask all the people of the land and the priests, ‘When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months for the past seventy years, was it really for me that you fasted? And when you were eating and drinking [on the feasts], were you not just feasting for yourselves? Are not these the words Eyahuwah proclaimed through the earlier prophets when Jerusalem and its surrounding towns were at rest and prosperous, and the Negev and the western foothills were settled?’”

But they refused to pay attention. Stubbornly they turned their backs and stopped their ears. They made their hearts as hard as flint and would not listen to the Law or to the words that Eyahuwah Almighty had sent by his Spirit through the earlier prophets. So Eyahuwah Almighty was very angry. Zechariah 7.

“You place defiled food on my altar.” Malachi 1:7

“You have turned from the way and by your teaching have caused many to stumble. You have violated the covenant with Levi. So I have caused you to be despised and humiliated before all the people, because you have not followed my ways but have shown partiality in matters of the Law.” Malachi 2

From the very beginning, before the heavens and the earth, the plan was to create a people who could live righteous and clean lives forever as the Children of Elah. But to get to that point each of them had to make personal choices to live righteous lives in the midst of trouble and temptation:

This is what Eyahuwah Almighty says, “Administer true justice. Show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. In your hearts do not think evil of each other.” Zechariah 7: 8-10.

What is going to happen?

The religions adopted by the children of Israel, including the House of Israel (Joseph) and the House of Judah (Jews) will be destroyed. Both, believe it or not, came from Babylon. In the case of Judah, the religion of the Pharisees has turned the people away from the righteousness of their fathers, to a substitute righteousness. And “unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the Pharisees, you will not enter into the Kingdom of Elah.” In the case of Joseph (the western nations), the Christian religion came from Paul the Pharisee and was also abstracted from Babylon.

“Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.” Revelation 17:1-2

Some think that this was the Catholic religion, but it is far more than that.

Mystery
Babylon the Great
The Mother of Prostitutes
And of the Abominations of the Earth

All of the religions to which the Nations of Israel and the rest of the world has succumbed can be traced back to Babylon. And all blame for this religious intoxication is placed upon her. Before the Righteous Kingdom comes all of this will be destroyed:

After this I saw another messenger coming down from heaven, He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a might voice he shouted,

“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every evil and detestable bird. For the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

The mistake is to think of this as a great secular nation. The “merchants” are those who sold her intoxicating wine to all in the whole world who would drink. All her great riches and luxuries are her store of deceptive teachings, traditions, dogma, rituals, buildings, music, ceremonies, pomp, vocabulary, symbols, and other accoutrements used to keep the people “drunk” on her adulterous religions.

A beast or empire will arise in the earth to the astonishment of the world and this powerful empire will destroy the woman and remove her influence from the face of the earth: “In one hour your doom has come.”

With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and trumpets, will never be heard in you again. … The light of the lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of the bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s great men. By your magic spell all the nations of the world were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and of the chosen and of all who have been killed on the earth!

Three chapters of the book of Revelation are prophecies concerning the end of the religions of the earth. This is no small event. This is not a split of some denomination. This is the end of all religions that have led the nations astray and that includes all the religions of the Nations of Israel.

What are we to do?

The entire world, from the Nations of Israel in the west and middle east, to the smallest nation in the most remote corner of the world, must turn away from their cherished religions and pray that the righteousness of the fathers and true wisdom and understanding will be given to them.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you are not partakers of her sins, and that you do receive of her plagues.

“For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double to her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double. How much she has glorified herself and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her. For she says in her heart, ‘I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.’ Therefore shall her plagues come in one day: death, and mourning, and famine. And she shall be utterly burned with fire. For strong is the Lord God who judges her.”

To not be a partaker of her sins means a major change in attitude and spirit. It requires that each individual earnestly fast and pray for wisdom, understanding and mercy. Each must have the desire to return to righteousness and to the same trust in Eyahuwah, who is our Savior and whose feet will stand on the Mount of Olives and bring peace, hope and salvation to the earth.

All of the religions that came out of Babylon are unclean. This is a time to “overcome” the world and its religions. It is a time for all of us to stand on our two feet and shake off the stupor from the “wine” of Babylon and turn to Eyahuwah and the Elahim, to come in and feed us with the clean food that leads to righteousness and Life. And don’t fall into the trap that your religion is different or that you are exempt. If you don’t see this, then at least have the courage to allow yourself to be taught by our Father in heaven. Then it will be said to you as it was to Peter, “Blessed are you for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.”

“Escape, you who live in the Daughter of Babylon!” Zechariah 2:7
