Well, if there was ever a time to begin studying and looking at prophecy, I’d say nows a good time …
Though Y’shua admonishes us to always be alert and watching, there are a number of very interesting things going down, to definitely keep an eye on!
If you haven’t been able to keep up with the research behind each of the points below — please check out the embedded links for more information — I have only been able to give a short summary …
1. Was President Obama’s recent 20 January 2013 Inaugural Day another connection in the parallel between Modern America and Ancient Israel?
In his book “Harbinger”, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn presents a fascinating parallel between GOD’s Dealings with Ancient Israel and Modern America, detailing how since September 11th 2001, America has experienced similar “harbingers of judgement” (warnings) as Ancient Israel did, before GOD eventually did judge Israel, in that Jerusalem succumbed to the siege of 587 B.C. — the Temple was destroyed, and the people taken captive …
Rabbi Jonathan Cahn was a guest speaker at the Inaugural Day Breakfast — check out the video HERE.
In addition to Cahn’s parallel’s, Nathan Leal noted the following:
“In the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, on the ninth day of the month, the city was penetrated.” Jeremiah 39:2
Moving forward from the date of September 11, 2001 and using the calculation found in the verse above (Jeremiah 39:2),
1. September 11, 2001 + 11 years = September 11, 2012.
2. September 11, 2012 + 4 months = January 11, 2013
3. January 11, 2013 + 9 days = January 20, 2013
We arrive at the date of January 20, 2013!
2. Another interesting topic, that has just this week gotten even more interesting, is the “prophecies of the popes” by Malachy Martin. Last year, Tom Horn and Chris Putnam released their book “Petrus Romanus”, in which they looked at the EXTRA-Biblical “pope prophecies” and noted that, although NOT part of Biblical prophecy, it was interesting that Malachy predicted that Pope Benedict XVI would be the second to last pope, and that the pope after him, would be the FINAL pope … and on this past Monday (11 February), Pope Benedict XVI announced that, due to health problems, he has needed to resign — his last day in office being 28 February 2013.
(Currently, Tom Horn and Chris Putnum are working on a follow-up project, regarding Genesis 6, UFO’s, alien disclosure, and the coming great deception — also worth checking out!)
All this leads into point three, and the upcoming Festival of Purim, and 22 March …
3. If you haven’t had a chance to watch 119 Ministries‘ “End of Days” series, definitely make a plan to watch all the episodes, especially part four, “Daniel Unsealed”.
In “Daniel Unsealed”, the 119 guys present some VERY interesting information regarding the upcoming solar/lunar eclipses ON the Feast Days of 2014 and 2015 (they are not the only one’s who looked into this, Mark Biltz and Dewey Bruton have done similar studies). They also look at the various counting of days, given in Daniel and Revelation … all of which seem to start round about now, early 2013. In their study, the date they keep landing on is 1 September 2016, which is the date for Yom Teruah (the Feast of Trumpets) that year.
In a nutshell (though you must really watch the video), they give the following countings:
- 1 September 2016 – 1,290 days (as given in Daniel 12:11) = 21 February 2013 (Purim)
- 1 September 2016 – 1,260 days (as given in Daniel 7:25, Daniel 12:7, Revelation 11:2-3, Revelation 12:6, 14) = 22 March 2013.
- 22 March just so happens to be the day after winter (21 March is the equinox) and the day before a Sabbath — just as Y’shua describes in Matthew 24!
In the teaching, they discuss some of the other countings given as well … very interesting indeed!
What’s more … 119 Ministries’ released the following Facebook update:
Summary of news articles posted lately (in order of news release dates):
The position of Pope is granted seat on Mount Zion in Israel.
Obama going to Jerusalem for the first time on 3/20/13.
Pope announces resignation effective close of day 2/28/13.
Announced that he will be helicoptered to the Pope vacation home for 20 days while the new Pope is selected and announced. This would be 3/21/12.
“Daniel Unsealed” prescribed possible significance to sundown 3/21 to 3/22/13 related to the abomination of desolation.
Here is something that was JUST realized.
We all know how the adversary likes to mock and imitate Yah’s Ways in his own way.
Here it is.
Obama will be [making his FIRST trip to Jerusalem, since becoming President and will be] arriving in Jerusalem on the 10th day of the first month on the Hebraic calendar.
For those who do not connect the date, that is the day Y’shua rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling the Torah commandment to inspect the lamb for Passover on the 10th day [of the first month of the year].
Getting closer to “DU” day … either the teaching will be deleted, or it will not.
We will see …
A lot of things that make you sit up and take note …
Since from around 2010, we have seen the birth pangs have already started. Birth pangs don’t just stop, what happens? Labor increases with intensity … the contractions are more frequent … and the pain heightens.
So, if the previous years are any indication, we may be in for a rough ride …
What then should we be doing? Y’shua gives us clear instruction in Luke 21 … in describing these last days, FIVE times Y’shua warns:
Watch and pray!
Notice, He gives us a TWO-fold instruction … watch AND pray!
Most of us get the praying part, I mean, can anything come but through prayer? But, for most of the Body of Messiah, the watching part has been all but neglected …
What does it mean to watch? The Greek word used in Luke 21 is Strong’s Greek 991 … this word means “to look at (literally or figuratively), behold, beware, perceive, regard, take heed”.
Watching simply means WATCHING … being aware/alert to what is happening, and then studying the Scriptures to determine what lines up with what YHVH has said/prophesied … and what doesn’t. We are told — if we’re watching, we will see the signs — and they will be confirmed, as things unfold …
Why do we watch?
Why does an army have a guard patrol? Why did the Israelites of old have watchmen on the walls?
In order to be prepared! To see what is coming, and be able to not only STAND, but to strengthen/encourage those who will be completely caught off guard!
In the dark times coming, we are to shine for YHVH … to have the answers! To have HOPE!
Remember, YHVH promises a reward to those who watch and pray …
One note on this …
Many in the past have become discouraged and disillusioned with predictions and prophecies … this is very sad!
We must remember watching means watching — watching does not mean something is for sure, most definitely going to occur … it means we look at the research presented, TEST EVERYTHING against the Scriptures … and continue to watch, to see if the signs are confirmed.
We must also remember to walk in the TENSION … which is so much apart of the Biblical mindset, and yet is so difficult for our human natures!
To WATCH and be VIGILANT, and yet be at peace (FEAR is not of the Father) …
To be READY, and yet continue walking the “everyday” walk of faith …
To PREPARE ourselves as the BRIDE, keeping our lamp’s oil full, while we wait …
Let us keep watch, while we continue to TRUST and seek after the Father, keeping close to HIM …
Establish yourself in HIM (YHVH) Who will never leave you alone, and Y’SHUA Who is our SOLID Rock …
May He direct your steps!
