END TIME: END of Gentile Rule Coming! Israel’s Deliverance Immanent!

Maybe you have heard about this, or maybe not. But the gentiles have been ruling the earth now for almost 2520 years. Their rule started after the House of Judah was taken captive and has continued to this day. What will that mean for the world? Should we be concerned?

The Book of Daniel begins with Daniel coming face to face with Nebuchadnezzar the leader of Babylonia. The Babylonians took the House of Judah captive because they had strayed from the Torah (Instructions) and began following Babylonian ways. Yahua was angered by their departure from the Torah, and He turned His back on them and allowed them to be taken captive, just as He said when He made the covenant with them in the wilderness.

In other words, Judah did not choose life. And neither did the Israelites of the northern kingdom – the House of Israel headed by Ephraim. They were taken captive by the Assyrians centuries earlier.

During the time of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar had a dream about a giant statue with a head of gold, breastplate and arms of silver, stomach and thighs of brass, two legs of iron, and feet mixed with iron and clay. He didn’t understand the dream, and sought for answers. But he made a demand in order to tell whether or not the teller was gifted enough to tell him the truth. He demanded that they tell him the dream, and its meaning. Of course, they balked.

ENOCH CALENDAR: The Feast of the Weeks

This feast is unknown to most people, including those who practice keeping the feast days. Another of the appointed Feasts is the Feast of Firstfruits – a harvest related feast that happens on the 15th day of the third month of the Enoch Calendar.

The Calendar was revealed to our father Enoch by the Messenger Uriel, who, by the way, was given charge over the appointed times and the sun, moon and stars. However, no mention is made in Enoch about the Feasts and High Days. Instead these were given to Moses and the people of Israel at the time of the Exodus. These were spelled out both by experience and as recorded in the Torah (Instructions).

But since that time, the people of Israel, all 12 tribes, not just Jews who were from Judah, departed from the Instructions and decided to learn how the other nations followed their gods and ran their lives. So after the Kingdom of Israel split into the House of Israel and the House of Judah, they began to follow the secular calendar of the Babylonians. Because this practice led them into uncleanness both Houses at different times were led into both captivity and then were dispersed. Continue reading

END TIME: The Torah, The Feast of Weeks, The Feast of First-fruits — the Good News

The time of this writing is on the 46th Day of Enoch’s Calendar, which was given to him by direct revelation from the Messenger Uriel. The 46th Day is also the Seventh Day or Sabbath of the Week and last Day of the Third Week in the Feast of Weeks. We are now marching through, Day by Day and Week by Week, the Seven Weeks of the Festival. When the Weeks are complete, the very next Day after the Seven Weeks is the 75th Day of the Year and the 15th Day of the third Month.

It is called the Feast of First-fruits …

END TIME: Armageddon: the Final Battle and the Great Change

Originally titled: Presidents and Politics in Prophecy

The United States of America has just completed the longest Presidential campaign in its history. For more than two years the people have been subjected to a constant barrage of platitudes and promises coming from the candidates.

That is part of the process, but frightening events of political, economic, and international scope are raising doubts in the people that “change” may not go as smoothly as promised. Even the newly elected President expressed his own warnings that change may not happen as quickly as most people think or hope.

"Change," unfortunately, has always been a catch phrase of those who desire power over the people. Demagogues throughout history have softened the people with the promise of change in order to gain position. In this latest race, both candidates sincerely preached their own doctrine of change. Lest some be offended I will not list those who in the historical record also promised change, and a "new reign" or "down with the current regime and up with the new."

However, in spite of our efforts real change is coming. It is called the “Great Change” or the “Restoration!”

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: …

ENOCH: Prophet for All Ages and Father of All Living

Although few realize it, Enoch’s impact on the lives of all who are alive today is profound.

First, he is the father of all who are alive today and all who have lived since the great flood. He is also the great-grandfather of Noah.

Second, the prophecies in the Books of Enoch transcend time and place. No scholar can make a claim that his writings were recently written, and few are willing to admit that Enoch prophesied the burning of the Temple in 70 CE and the dispersion of the people in 135 CE, which happened after a three and a half year rebellion against the Romans that ended in defeat. His prophecy coincides with Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy, which was given to him by the messenger Gabriel.

Third, all who came along after Enoch, including the Prophets who wrote the Hebrew Scriptures and the Apostles who wrote the New Testament, knew Enoch’s books and referred to them either directly or indirectly. His writings were not questioned, and instead formed the “stasis” or foundation upon which all subsequent prophecies and Scripture are based.

Enoch’s Visions Revealed the Future History of Mankind

Enoch wrote the visions that he saw. For example, the first of his dream visions painted a picture of the coming great flood. The second used a metaphor of “clean and unclean” animals, and revealed the entire history of the human race from the beginning until all reach their ultimate and fore-ordained great destiny. Without this vision the true meaning of the “clean and unclean” meats of Leviticus …

END TIME: Population Signals the End of the Age?

The idea that population more than any other single earthly factor can bring major, life-threatening problems to the living, is not new. However, considering the history and the future of Mankind, we must understand the changes this might have on our lives. What is our hope?

From the Wikipedia.org we read:

In An Essay on the Principle of Population, first published in 1798, Malthus made the famous prediction that population would outrun food supply, leading to a decrease in food per person.

“The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race. The vices of mankind are active and able ministers of depopulation. They are the precursors in the great army of destruction, and often finish the dreadful work themselves. But should they fail in this war of extermination, sickly seasons, epidemics, pestilence, and plague advance in terrific array, and sweep off their thousands and tens of thousands. Should success be still incomplete, gigantic inevitable famine stalks in the rear, and with one mighty blow …

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.

RAPTURE: Still here? Why nothing happened!

Consequent to the fascination with the speculations that Christians would be taken away to heaven sometime between sunset on September 30, 2008, the start of Jewish Rosh HaShana or Jewish “Feast of Trumpets,” and sunset on October 9, 2008, the end of the Jewish Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement, many will be either disappointed or relieved that those days will have gone by uneventful. Why? What went wrong?

Note: First written in 2007 and revised for 2008.

Prophesying about the Christian notion of a “rapture” has led many into trouble. Even some televangelists got burned trying to predict this imagined, non-Scriptural, pre-tribulation event.

The main problem, of course, is that the idea of a pre-tribulation “rapture” is not from Scripture. The idea comes from twisting Paul’s epistles and from misconstruing the rest of the New Testament. But it really is a very recent idea from the early 1800s. Sure there are promises of protection, deliverance, and keeping some safe from the trouble prophesied to come. But not one is called a “rapture.” That is by definition, “a Theological term not found in the Scriptures.”

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].
