Modern Day Israel Time Table

The approximate time of the birth of Zionism and the return of Jews to Palestine. Small
numbers of Jews had been living in the land for two millennia, but this was the date of an
agricultural school, the Mikveh Israel, was founded near Jaffa by the Alliance of Israelite
Universelle, a French Jewish association.

1882 - 1903 Migration was accompanied by a revival of the Hebrew language and attracted Jews of all kinds;religious, secular, nationalists and left-wing socialists. Socialists aimed to reclaim the land by becoming peasants and forming collectives. In Zionist history, the different waves of Jewish
settlement are known as "aliyah". During the First Aliyah, between 1882 and 1903, about
35,000 Jews moved to what is now Israel. By 1890, Jews were a majority in Jerusalem, although
the area was populated mainly by Muslim (settled and nomad Bedouins) and Christian Arabs.

1896 Theodor Herzl published Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State), in which he asserted that the
solution to growing antisemitism in Europe (the so-called "Jewish Question") was to establish a
Jewish state. In 1897, the Zionist Organisation was founded and the First Zionist Congress
proclaimed its aim "to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public
law. However, Zionism was regarded with suspicion by the Ottoman rulers and was unable to
make major progress.

1904 - 1914 Between 1904 and 1914, around 40,000 Jews settled in Southern Syria (the
Second Aliyah). In 1908 the Zionist Organization set up the Palestine Bureau (also known as the "Eretz Israel Office") in Jaffa and began to adopt a systematic Jewish settlement policy. Migrants were mainly from Russia (which then included part of Poland), escaping persecution. The first Kibbutz, Degania, was founded by 9 Russian socialists in 1909. In 1909 residents of Jaffa established the first entirely Hebrew-speaking city, Ahuzat Bayit (later renamed Tel Aviv). Hebrew newspapers and books were published, Hebrew schools, Jewish political parties and workers organizations were established.

1914 - 1917 World War 1 During World War I, most Jews supported the Germans because they were fighting the Russians who were regarded as the Jews' main enemy. In Britain, the government sought Jewish support for the war effort for a variety of reasons including an erroneous anti-semitic perception of "Jewish power" over the Ottoman Empire's Young Turks movement, and a desire to secure American Jewish support for US intervention on Britain's behalf.

There was already sympathy for the aims of Zionism in the British government, including the
Prime-Minister Lloyd-George. In late 1917, the British Army drove the Turks out of Southern
Syria, and the British foreign minister, Lord Balfour, sent a public letter to Lord Rothschild, a
leading member of his party and leader of the Jewish community. The letter subsequently became
known as the Balfour Declaration of 1917.

The declaration provided the British government with a pretext for claiming and governing the
country. New Middle Eastern boundaries were decided by an agreement between British and
French bureaucrats. The agreement gave Britain control over what would now be called "Palestine".

Nov 2, 1917 The Balfour Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland:

"His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for
the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object,
it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious
rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed
by Jews in any other country."

The "Balfour Declaration" was later incorporated into the Sevres peace treaty with the Ottoman
Empire and the Mandate for Palestine. The original document is kept at the British Library.

Dec 11, 1917General Allenby enters Jerusalem on foot to celebrate its capture in World War 1. Fighting began on Nov 17, 1917 (Rosh Chodesh, first crescent moon) until the Turks formally surrendered theterritory. The day of Allenby’s entry into Jerusalem, Dec 11, 1917 was the first day of Hanukkah, celebrating the cleansing of the Temple during the time of the Maccabee’s defeat of Antioch Epiphanies in 165 BC.

May 1945 The war in Europe comes to an end as Germany is defeated by the allies. More than 250,000 displaced Jews (DP’s) are left in concentration camps administered by U.S. Forces until they can be relocated.

1945 - 1948 Jewish DP’s are still overwhelmingly waiting in the former concentration camps for resolution of where they are to be relocated. The British who have the mandate to rule Palestine are refusing to allow Jews to immigrate to Palestine in order to appease the Arabs. Harry Truman asks Britain to allow 100,000 DP’s immediate entry to Palestine, but Britain refuses.

1947 Britain turns the Palestine issue over to the United Nations to resolve. A United Nation’s
resolution is passed to partition Palestine into both Jewish and Arab states. The Jews accept the
plan, but the Arabs refuse, demanding that all of Palestine be given to them.

1947 - 1948 Debates within the U.N. continue on the fate of Palestine, but the resolution to partition the land and create two new nations, a Jewish and an Arab state remain firm. The date of the formal
creation of the two states is decided to be May 15, 1948. The Arabs threaten war against the Jews
if the resolution is carried out.

May 15, 1948 The Jews declare the creation of the State of Israel. Harry Truman and the United States are the first to recognize the newly created state. Arab armies attack Israel beginning the first Arab Israeli war.

January 1949 Arab nations agree to a tenuous cease fire and end of the initial conflict but refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

June 7, 1967 Jerusalem is captured by the Jewish Defense Forces and the city is united under Jewish rule for time since the Judean southern kingdom. Sites are opened for access to Jews, Moslems, and
Christians on June 23, 1967.

1973 Yom Kippur War Egypt and Syria launch a surprise attach on the Jewish day of fasting, Yom Kippur. The Egyptians and Syrians advance for the first 48 hours after which the momentum swings in Israel’s favor. Israel clearly had the military victory over both Syria and Egypt, but it suffered a large blow to morale as well as substantial human casualties. The outcome of the Yom Kippur War set the stage for "a new phase in Israeli-Egyptian relations" ending ultimately in the signing of the Camp David Peace Accords.

1973 to Present Conflict with Hezbollah, Hamas, and other neighbors continually presses upon and wears down the nation of Israel. Intifada with the Palestinians flare up in 1987-1993 and 2000. Various attempts at peace are negotiated but never take hold.

Palestinians continue to refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist and expect Israel to negotiate on these impossible terms. The world continues to press Israel to trade land for peace in spite of the attitude of the Palestinians and surrounding Arab nations. Hate and mistrust prevail on both sides of the issue. The clock is ticking.

As 2013 comes to a close I hope this chart will help you understand how modern Israel came into being. As we move toward 2017 these issues will become increasingly more difficult as momentous events prophetically unfold in the Middle East.

Do Know or Not Do Know? That is the Question.

The Second Coming
Your dead shall live; together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Isaiah 26.19

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thess 4.16

The Feast of Trumpets announces the (second) coming of the Messiah. In ancient days when Israel was in captivity in Babylon the feast had to be proclaimed by the new moon. This is the only feast that begins on a new moon. The priests would watch for the new moon and announce the feast when they saw the first sliver of the new moon. Since the land of captivity was so large it took two days for the word to travel to all those in the Diaspora (scattering). Yom Teruah became know as “one long day”. It also became known as “the day no man knows”.

Jews celebrate Yom Teruah for 49 hours because no one knows exactly when the new moon will be sighted.

The Lord is saying that even Satan doesn’t know the hour He will return. It is the only feast that the exact time it begins is not known. This is to confuse the enemy. Ref: 1 Cor 2.8: which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. The Father keeps the enemy guessing because he knows this is the end for him.

During Trumpets the shofar is blown 100 times in what is called the Teruah blast--three short shrill blasts of warning. Those three blasts are repeated 33 times = 99 sounds. The 100th and final blast is know in Hebrew culture as “the last trump”. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Cor 15.51-52

The Lord is cryptically telling us when He is going to return through the Feast of Trumpets. We will not know the exact day or hour but we are to be watching and waiting at this particular time on the calendar. We should not be surprised by a thief in the night.
Here is what Paul has to say:
"But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing." 1 Thess 5.1-11

We do know when the Lord is coming! He is coming on some future Feast of Trumpets. We are not to be surprised by the thief in the night. We are to be watching during the “day no man knows”, the 49 hour Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah). The righteous are not to be surprised by that day. The righteous may not know the year, exact day, or hour, they will know that he will return during the Feast of Trumpets. They will, therefore, be looking for their Messiah on the 30th and the 31st day of the sixth month of Elul.

Yeshua has physically fulfilled the first four feasts: Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Pentecost. He is going to fulfill the three fall feasts in like manner.



Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Pentecost is the bridge between the two advents of Yeshua. The feasts of the Lord (Lev23.1) are divine appointments. The Hebrew word is mo’ed = appointed times. The feasts give us the knowledge of what lies ahead. Observing them is like a dress rehearsal. We keep ourselves prepared so that we are not surprised by the thief in the night.

Trumpets is the day of the creation of the world. The date on the Hebrew calendar is 1 Tishri. It is also called Rosh Hashanah. We say Shana Tov = Happy New Year. We are commanded in Lev 23.1 to proclaim the feasts. To go out and let everyone know. A proclamation.

Trumpets (Yom Teruah) is the time for repentance. Ten days after the Feast of Trumpets is the Day of Atonement. The ten days between Trumpets and Day of Atonement are called the “Days of Awe” and are to be the time of repentance as the Day of Atonement approaches. The Day of Atonement is our “day of redemption”, but for the wicked it is the “day of wrath”. Five days after the Day of Atonement is the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) which is a time of rejoicing and celebration--a wedding celebration with the King.

The three fall feasts are prophetic of the end of the age when the Messiah comes and restores all things. The Jewish community is still waiting for the return of the Messiah. They do not know who he is because they missed him at his first coming--Yeshua is his name--Jesus the Christ (The Anointed).

Yom Teruah is known as the “Day of Blowing” in the Jewish community. It is the time of Jacob’s Trouble as proclaimed by the prophets in the Old Testament. Other names for Trumpets are: Day of Awakening Blast, Yom Hadin = the Day of Judgment, Opening of the Gates, the Hidden Day, Ha Melech = Coronation Day, Opening of the Books.

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years….Gen 1.14

The Hebrew calendar is both solar and lunar. Solar defines the years and the lunar defines the months. The west is on the Gregorian Calendar which was a refinement of the Julian Calendar started by Julius Caesar. In 1582 Pope Gregory adjusted the calendar for lost days. This is the calendar we observe today in most of the world.

God wants us on another calendar--His calendar. We cannot know the times or seasons if we do not understand God’s calendar as revealed in the Bible. Satan knows what is coming and he has deceived the world. He knows God’s mo’eds, the appointed times. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Dan 7.25

We need to be in agreement with God and understand His calendar. The book of Revelation says that Satan has deceived the whole world. That deception begins with the calendar. If we do not understand the times (1 Chron 12.32) we will not know what is happening--we will have no hope! It is essential for us to understand the Hebrew calendar!
The Israelites were to blow the shofar--to sound an alarm--and God will remember them. This is a shadow of the Feast of Trumpets. Trumpets is the warning blast of the shofar that announces the imminent coming of the King!

Then they that feared the Lord spoke often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves him not. Mal 3.16-18

And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you. Num 29.1
A Holy Convocation--the Day of Blowing. From this verse we get “Yom Teruah”. Teruah is a battle cry, an alarm, a shout. Alarm, Trumpets, Shouting!

For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? 1 Cor 14.8 Uncertain sound? We are to know the sound--this is the purpose of the dress rehearsal of Yom Teruah.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Ps 47.5For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 1 Thess 4.16 And the Lord shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south. Zech 9.14

These verses all are symbolic of the Feast of Trumpets. The feast is a reminder, a memorial, to what is going to occur sometime in the future at Yeshua’s second advent. We are to know and understand!

Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance. Ps 89.15

The sound of the Trumpet is a joyful sound--Our redeemer comes! Trumpets is the alarm! Those who know the Lord and are prepared will recognize the sounds of alarm!

In my last post we were looking at Rabbi Judah ben David's prophecy about the Holy Land which he gave in 1217 A.D. I will let the Bible speak for itself as to what a generation is in Yehovah's eyes. There are many opinions on what a Biblical generation is, some say 40 years, others 70 years.

I believe the Bible says a generation is one hundred years, at least in how it applys to prophecy and how long people live. Today it is rare that anyone lives to be over 100 years old. Therefore the majority of a generation that sees specific events will have died within a hundred years. First let's see what the Word says:

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

The Israelites came out of Egypt 430 years to the date. This was during the time of the fourth generation. We still need a second witness:

Genesis 17:1, 17, 211 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.
Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?
But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.
God was starting a new generation with Isaac when Abraham was 100 years old, welcome to the new generation. Now, a third witness:

Genesis 5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old, and Noah begot Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Genesis 7:6-7
Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth. So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
Before the flood the last generation of earth (Noah's sons) was 100 years old. When they came out of the ark a new generation would be born to Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Who were each one hundred years old. Finally let's get a fourth and final witness:

Genesis 15:16
Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” The Lord was telling Abraham that after 400 years (four generations) they would leave Egypt.

Concerning the blood moons and coming events within the parameters of ben Samuel's prophecy in 1217 A.D. the one hundred year generation fits very well. In addition, every fifty years is a Jubilee or Yovel year. Jubilee years represent freedom from slavery and return of land inheritence.

Rabbi ben Samuel prophesied in 1217 about the Ottoman Turks taking over the Holy Land. Three hundred years later (or three generations later) in 1517 the Turks took the land. Then, four hundred years later in 1917 the Allies, led by Britain, captured Jerusalem. The result was the Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate in Palestine, promising the Jews a Jewish homeland.

If we look at 1917 as a Jubilee year, we see the land beginning to be restored to Israel. In 1948 Israel became a nation after a short war with the surrounding Arab countries. The city of Jerusalem was divided between Israel and Jordan at that time.

Then in 1967 the city of Jerusalem was captured by Israel and become united under Jewish rule. This, again was a Jubilee year. The land and the capital city of Jerusalem firmly in Jewish hands.

The year 2017 will be the end of the one hundred year generation that began in 1917. It will be a Jubilee year--fifty years from 1967. Will this begin the next step in those things which will occur in Israel as preparation for the return of Yeshua? The reverse of freedom from slavery and return of land inheritance is slavery (captivity) and loss of inheritance.

The nation of Israel has been looking to man to solve the problems with the Arabs and have refused to trust Yehovah for possession of the land. Is God warning them of impending judgments on the nation for giving land for peace? God gave Israel a possession and the world is pressing Israel to give land for peace. The year 2017 is going to begin a new period for Israel, the church, and the world. I believe we will see a shaking of Israel, the called out, (church) and the nations like we have never seen before beginning in 2017. Now is the time to watch and pray for direction and understanding.
 Matthew 24:32-34 - The Parable of the Fig Tree“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.

This is a Hurricane watch! Just as in a Hurricane we have a watch and a warning. At this time I'd like to think of this as a watch. Yeshua told us to watch and pray. We have a three year window to watch events play out. I am pointing out some interesting parallels with the Jews, believers in Yeshua, and the seriousness of the coming three years. At this moment in time this is a "Watch" the warnings will come later if things continue to progress. In God's program this may be a "Warning", but for now, for us, we should watch closely the peace process and unfolding events in Jerusalem.
Continuing with the Blood Moons theme:

In Jewish culture there is a blessing for eveything that brings us a benefit. Therefore, if there is no blessing for a significant event, this indicates there is no benefit. There is no blessing or "bracha" for an eclipse. The Hebrew term for eclipse is "Likui" or defect. The Talmud says that a Likui of the Sun is an omenous sign for the world, a lunar Likui is an omenous sign for Israel. Therefore there is no blessing for these events.

In Jewish thought the moon is associated with the children of Israel. Like Israel, and like believers in Yeshua, we wax and wane in our walk. The moon reflects the light of the sun, so too is the Jewish nation (and believers in Yeshua), meant to reflect Yehovah's glory. We are to be a "light to the nations" a reflection of Yeshua.

So, just as the moon waxes and wanes, so we go through stages of difficulties and testings with the knowledge that we are to be overcomers. Isn't it interesting that in Hebrew thought the rabbis believe that for a certain time the Jewish people must endure the darkness of exile. The shining of the moon anew each month reassures them of the coming of the utlimate rebirth, the redemption. Isn't that amazing!

So we can say the moon = Israel ( remember we are grafted into the commonwealth of Israel). An eclipse of the moon during these end time feasts then could be a warning that Israel is not being a light to the Gentiles. (and the church is not being a witness in the proper way.)

The color red comes from the Hebrew word "adom" the original meaning "red arable ground". Red typifies war, murder, and blood-thirstiness. Many Dictators throughout history and today establish their power on murder and blood-thirstiness. Many of those under satan's power operate this way. Israel's enemies fit this discription.
The color red is often associted with sin and impurity. Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith Yehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. In Jewish thought the color red in not to be worn, as it was the color that harlots wore.

Note: All the wars Israel has fought have not had lunar eclipses associated with them. There were none in 1973 before the Yom Kippur war or the U.S. Gulf War.

According to an article in the Israel Today magazine, by Ludwig Schneider, In AD 1217 rabbi Judah ben Samuel a scholarly and pious rabbi prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Now, keep in mind, he made this prediction 300 years before the Ottoman Turks seized control of Jerusalem in 1517. If indeed 1217 and 1517 were jubilee years as Judah Ben Samuel believed, then his prophecy was exactly right, because exactly 400 years after the Turks took control of Jerusalem they were driven out of the city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby – on Hanukkah, by the way.

The rabbi also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a “no-man’s land.” This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the Holy Land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally “belonged” to no nation.
Even after Israel’s war of independence in 1948-49, Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called “no-man’s land” by both the Israelis and the Jordanians.
It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire West Bank of the Holy Land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.
Judah Ben Samuel also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin. If he’s right, the 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017. According to Rav Yehuda heHasid, 5727 (Six Day War in 1967) was a Yovel and the next Yovel is 5776 (Gregorian year: 2016-17).

Fellow laborers in Yeshua, as the new year approaches I want to share what the Lord has impressed upon my spirit. Please pray and seek His direction even if you disagree with what I am about to share.

The major topic in prophecy this coming year of 2014 is the lunar tetrads which will appear in the heavens in 2014 and 2015. These are the blood moons that will appear at Passover and Tabernacles in both 2014 and 2015 (see attached chart). Every prophecy site is, or will be, discussing this topic as we move into 2014. I feel that the Lord has given me some insight into what it all means. He has shown me pieces of the puzzle and put them together for me from several sources. My five sources or witnesses are: 1. Pastor Mark Biltz who was the first to see the event after researching on the NASA site and overlaying the Hebrew calendar on the celestial events. 2. Eschotology charts I found on the web. 3. Johnathan Cahn's revelation "The Harbinger" 4. E.W. Bullinger's "The Gospel Witness in the Stars". 5. Research, reading, and praying for understanding.

I will assume everyone is familiar with "The Harbinger" as I put the pieces together. It is also important to have a basic understanding of the Hebrew calendar--if you don't you need to start learning about it.

In 1994 a comet broke into 21 pieces and all 21 pieces struck the planet Jupiter. In Hebrew the planet Jupiter means "Righteousness" and stands for the righteousness and righteous judgments of the Lord. This celestial event was a sign in the heavens (Gen 1.14) that God is going to be judging the nations prior to the return of Yeshua. The word in Genesis for seasons means "divine appointments" not the four seasons of the year. It refers to His appointed times and is connected with the fall feasts of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles which explain coming end time events.

In Leviticus 26.21, 24, 28 the nation whose God is the Lord is warned that they can walk in blessing or cursing. They must obey to be blessed, they will be punished if rebellious. Three times they are told they will be punished 7 times more if they rebel. Three X 7 = 21, as in 21 pieces which hit righteous Jupiter. This event took place on the week of the 9th of Av, July 16-22, 1994. The 9th of Av on the Hebrew calendar is when Nebuchadnezzar broke the walls of Jerusalem and the Jews went captive. It is a time of judgment throughout the ages for the Jewish people--many terrible things have happen on the 9th of AV including the Spanish Inquisition and destruction of the temple in 70 AD. The year 1994 was also a "Shemitta" year if we follow the story of the Harbinger. I will explain.

The 21 pieces of the comet striking Jupiter were a warning of up coming judgments on the nations. If they did not repent, the signs meant that there will be a judgment 3 times in the next 21 years, during the Shemitta of each 7th year of each cycle. The shemitta year is the seventh year when debt is forgiven and land is returned. It is a year of mercy--but if not followed judgment. The Israelites were taken captive because they did not keep the Shemitta or Sabbath years. Research Daniel and Jeremiah to prove this.

What happened in 1994 was a shemitta year on the Hebrew calendar (referrence the Harbinger). Seven years from 1994, in the year 2001, during the time of the Feasts of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles the twin towers were struck by the planes. It was a judgment on America's financial system as the towers were "world trade" centers. We all know what happened.

Then in 2008, during the same Hebrew calendar time of the Feasts of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles, we experienced the financial collapse of Lehman Brothers and the bailouts of the banks--a forgiveness of debt--that was paid off by the working man to save the system. We are still experiencing the fallout from that event. Has Wall St. cleaned up their act? Has anything changed. The Federal reserve continues to print money and debase the dollar. A fallout from this was the "Arab Spring" in Egypt, Libya, Tuninsia, and now Syria. A devalued dollar has major effects on poor nations. Most Egyptians live on about $4 a day. When this money is eroded it has a major effect on those economies because the dollar is the world reserve currency.

I am giving you the short version, I think most of you "get it". Now we are approaching the third shemitta period which will be from Tabernacles 2014 (Oct 8,2014) thru Tabernacles 2015 (Sept 28, 2015). That period will be the 7th year or Shemitta year of the 7 year cycle from 2008 up to Oct 8, 2014. What is going to happen?

In review: 1994 Shemitta: the warning as the comets pieces hit Jupiter. 2001 Shemitta: the twin towers and attack on America's financial system. 2008 Shemitta: the collapse of Lehman Bros and the beginning of the recession we are currently still in and the debasement of the dollar. 2015: The final judgment looms. In addition God is giving us signs from heaven: the sun turning black and the moon into blood (see the attached chart).

These solar and lunar events in the recent past have been connected to important events and war in Israel. This may be a portend of a war in Israel within the next 2 years. If the financial pattern of 2001 and 2008, as explained in the Harbinger continues, we may see some serious economic events during this coming time Tabernacles 2014 (Oct 8,2014) thru Tabernacles 2015 (Sept 28, 2015). This is the warning or watch I am sharing with you. We need to watch and pray that 2014 and 2015 play out according to the Lord's agenda.

Israel is being isolated and pressed into a peace treaty that will only do them harm. They are being pressed to take unilateral action against Iran's nuclear program. The world wants to divide Jerusalem and give East Jerusalem to the Palestinians. All of these things are prophesied in scripture--they are going to happen one way or another before Yeshua returns. We need to seek the Lord's direction on how to pray as these events unfold before us. How are we to intercede? What should we focus on? If we want the Lord to return we have some difficult decisions to consider. Is it His time? I am not saying He is coming in this time period but these events will be foundational for the NWO (New World Order) to be ushered in. Once the new order is established the way for the AntiChrist is prepared.

Financially there are things taking place internationally that will bring about a new financial order--and the USA will not be leading it. We need to prepare for a much leaner way of living and spending--at the very least we must be mentally prepared for this. This may start as the dollar being devalued by 30 to 50% in the next two years. Our spending power will be cut by this and inflation. Unrest in the streets is coming. We will have to be prepared for a much simplier lifestyle.

I sense in my spirit--the Lord doesn't speak to me in dreams and visions--that these things are coming between now and 2016. We need to prepare in any sensible way that the Lord leads you. We are going to learn to lean on the Lord and each other in ways we have not had to before--but the Lord will see us through. It will be a time of hardship, but peace within that passes understanding as we seek the Lord together.

If you have any questions or feed back please feel free to share them with me, I would greatly appreciate it. We are blessed to be alive at this time! Blessings and Shalom, Neil
