Sept. 26, 2013

I'm sorry for having taken down this website 3 days ago!  I did so prematurely.  I'm so tired of this that I wanted to be able to shut down all that I have taught of the possibility of Christ's Coming and Kingdom!  But as long as there is scriptural reasoning for me to keep it up and proclaiming Christ's Coming and kingdom, then I have to do so!  And that means that there is still no contradiction to the Day of The Lord, the Time of Jacob'sTrouble, the Sabbath and Sabbatical cycle, the fulfilled signs of Joel 2, the fact of the Lords day of:

 Isaiah 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. (YES...IT'S ONE DAY / YEAR...NOT 7 years or 3 & 1/2 years!)

And to the typology of Christ coming at the end of TOJT AND in the Last great day of the feast (tabernacles) in John 7!  Yes, I believe that there is scriptural reasoning for the coming of Christ at or shortly after Hanukkah this year!

 

Why Hanukkah?
 
I had privately thought that The Lord may come this last 22nd of Sept. the reason(s) being that it was the fall equinox and the beginning of the yearly "night"!
And as Paul said...we are not of the night, and The Lord said that we must work while it is day, and the night comes when no man can work etc.
 
However, beginning on the 20th, I began to doubt what I thought could possibly be directly associated to the Fall equinox of the 22nd. It started to make more sense that the time of or around Hanukkah would be better suited for the Lords coming for His Church and the judgments to be meted out to the world!
 
When continuing with John's gospel account of Tabernacles, I noticed this. That the healing of the blind man on the 8th day being a Sabbath (rep. Of the Mill. Kingdom) all of a sudden jumped from fall/ tabernacles to (Hanukkah) the feast of dedication and winter!!
 
John 10:21-31
Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
HERE IS THE ENDING WORDS AT TABERNACLES....THEN!
 
 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not:the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. 
 
IS JESUS SOON GOING TO TELL THE WORLD PLAINLY THAT HE IS GOD BY THE WORKS HE WILL SOON DO?! MAINLY THE RESURRECTION AND THE RAPTURE?  REMEMBER, IT IS THE RAISING OF THE DEAD THAT HAPPENS FIRST!!
 
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
 
NOW, the scriptures from when it is told that it was the feast of dedication does not say it was the beginning, middle or end! But if we take it to start at the beginning of the 8 day feast, then Jesus left that day after being threatened with stoning!
 
John 10:38-40
But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works:that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. Therefore they sought again to take him:but he escaped out of their hand, And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
 
Now all it says is that Jesus abode there...not how long!  However, the length of time may be in the following.
 
John 11:1
Chapter 11
 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
 
John 11:3
Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
John 11:5-7
Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.
 
IF, THIS IS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE FEAST OF DEDICATION, JESUS WAS THERE ON DAY 1, went to just beyond the Jordan river...day 2, hearing of Lazarus being sick on 3rd day,  remained there 2 days AFTER/ STILL hearing Lazarus was sick, now day 5 (Lazarus most likely died and buried on day 3 of the feast) Jesus Talking with deciples below on day 5.
 
Amazing what is said below! Hours of the day, night etc. in connection with what??
THE RAISING OF THE DEAD!
 
John 11:8-11
His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. These things said he:and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
John 11:13-14
Howbeit Jesus spake of his death:but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
 
NOW THEY DECIDE TO GO BACK TO BETHANY...MOST LIKELY DAY 6 of feast and the 4th day Lazarus being in the grave. Day 3, 4, 5 and 6!! This could be off by a day or two!
 
Most Christians discount Hanukkah as having any regard to or for them. Whether literally or symbolically!  Now in a nut shell, Hanukkah is the Jewish established feast for the miraculous burning of the dedication oil for the Temple Menorah!
Now in short, the rededication was to be for 8 days! But the priests had oil only for 1 day. Now remember...this rededication was for a 7 lamp or candle stick Menorah...not a 9 lamp one!!  YES...THE CHURCH...WAS ALWAYS WITHIN THE NATION OF ISRAEL!!
 
Now, does something sound familiar about this miracle at the rededication of the Temple and the OIL NEEDED FOR THE 8 DAYS???  THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH OIL!!!  SEE OR VIZ. THE 10 VIRGINS!!
 
Matthew 25:6-10
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you:but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage:and the door was shut.
 
Note especially that there was not enough oil AND "at midnight" the cry was made!
Now in the account of the rededication, they had oil for 1 of the 8 required days! The miracle was that the Menorah kept burning for the remaining 7 days!  Keep that 7 in mind!  
 
As I said earlier, I had thought that The Lord may come just prior to the fall equinox or the time of Night to begin...HOWEVER, even in the parable of the 10 virgins, the call was made at MIDNIGHT!! The night was well into itself! If looking at the year as by a clock, the start of the night would be the Fall equinox, and the Day would be at the spring equinox! BUT where or when would be "midnight"?? It would be half way between the fall and Spring!  Or what we know as he winter solstice! The shortest day of the year! AND WHEN THE SUN starts rising earlier every day!
 
Malachi 4:2
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;
 
Now, what does Paul say about this time of night and darkness??
 
1 Thessalonians 5:2-5
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day:we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
 
Paul doesn't say that we wouldn't be in the night! Just that we are not of it! But also says that we have to be IN THE DAY/ YEAR of darkness in order that it SHOULD NOT OVERTAKE US!!
 
Yes, I have and do teach that the Day of The Lord (the greater day- to a thousand years--look it up) has already begun at Rosh of 2000! And we are in that day that corresponds to travail upon a woman with child (Leah, TOJT)!  BUT, and if we are in that last year of TOJT/ the Day of His vengeance and YEAR of His redeemed, WHAT IS THE REFERENCE ABLE TO APPLY TO AS THE TRAVAIL OF A WOMAN WITH CHILD?
 
Remember I asked you to note the "7" miraculous days of the Menorah's burning?
Also note The Lord said that His coming will be as it was in the days of Noah!
How long was Gods judgment to be poured out at Noah's time? It was for 40 days!
Now what happens when we multiply the Noah's days (40) by the number of Gods perfection (7) ??  We get 280 days!! Now divide that my the average month of 30 days and we get....9 months and 10 days!!  Yup, the normal gestation of a woman with child!!
 
The  SCRIPTURAL JUSTIFICATION FOR MULTIPLYING NOAH'S DAYS OF 40 BY 7!
 
NO ONE CAN SAY THAT THE TYPOLOGY OF DANIELS FRIENDS AND THE KING AND HIS IMAGE AND THE FIREY FURNACE ARE NOT EXEMPLIFYING THE TIME OF GREAT TRIBULATION (Noas days)!!
 
BUT THOSE DAYS ARE TO BE MULTIPLIED 7 TIMES MORE OR HOTTER!!
SO YES...HERE ARE THE 40 X 7 = 280 days!!
 
Daniel 3:19
Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego:therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
 
 NET
19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was filled with rage, and his disposition changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He gave orders to heat the furnace seven times hotter than it was normally heated.
 
BINGO!!!!!
 
Now, I had to be sure that the longest stretch of recorded time in the Revelation can be accommodated within this 9 + month period. And the only long period is for 5 months!!  And this 5 month period is Gods grace in not allowing man to die...so as to give those who will repent and accept His forgiveness of their sins to do so!
 
Revelation 9:5-6
And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months:and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
 
AND WHAT IS THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF GODS JUDGING THE EARTH?
 
Revelation 9:20-21
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood:which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
 
Calling men to Himself to accept his forgiveness!! What did The Lord tell Peter about forgiveness??  Notice the "7s"!
 
Matthew 18:21-22
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times:but, Until seventy times seven.
 
These 5 months do fit within the 9-10 months!  I have for a long time taught that the judgments of God are NOT sequential! BUT RATHER, more cause and effect!
The seals are the cause...the trumpets and vials are the continued effects!
 
What else does The Lord allude to as us being candle sticks or candles and the coming judgment to Mystery Babylon the Great?
 
Revelation 18:20
Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Revelation 18:23-24
And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee;
and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee:
 
But now, the King Jesus, will be taking Jerusalem and being annointed as King on Rosh Hashanah! And this possible 280 gestational days of Noah of judgment cannot run right up to Rosh / Tishri 1st!  There needs to be time allowed for the 2nd Coming itself, Armegeddon, gathering the woman out of the wilderness...etc.
 
Now look at what the counting of these 280 days are to just FROM ROSH of 2014!!
 
Sept 2014 = 24
Aug = 31
July = 31
June = 30
May = 31
April =  30
March = 31
Feb. = 28
Jan. = 31
 
Total = 267
 
13 into Dec. = Dec. 19th.   14 days back to Hannukah   Do reverse!!  FROM LAST DAY OF HANUKKAH, Dec. 5th, COUNT 280 days leaves 14 days before Tishri 1st / Rosh Hashanah of 2014!  Now just how soon or close is MIDNIGHT/ Winter solstice to Hanukkah!  The winter solstice is just 16 days from the last day of Hanukkah on Dec. 21st!!
 
So, what I see in relation to Hanukkah by scripture, is the raising of the dead, it is winter, the solstice, MIDNIGHT, The need for oil, the multiplied days of Noah (40X7), from Hanukkah to 14 days before Rosh, in the last great day of the feast in Johns typology leading to the Sabbath/ day Year! The last year of TOJT/ times of the Gentiles, with the overlapping sabbatical cycles and that of Daniels 70th week!!
 
That is it for my reasoning to keep this website up and running!
IF WE'RE ARE STILL HERE on January 1st, 2014...this website will be down permanently!!
 
TIMING OF THE REVELATION??
 
It is a remarkable and huge coincidence (if it is one) that it seems that not only was the apostle John was given the visions of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, but it seems that he was also given (to write) the TIMING of when the Revelation of Christ was to occur.
 
Back in 2010, I recognized the the Lord's coming "as it were in secret" (rapture) to the Temple for the feast of Tabernacles. But because of previously taught eschatology, my assumption of the "midst of the week" had to mean "the middle" of it. It did not nor dose it. Upon further looking at the scriptures of John 7-8, it became obvious that The Lord came on the Last great day of the feast and taught!
Even though the text does not say it specifically, Jesus ALWAYS  taught in or at the Temple sitting down. Which is why it then says of that last great day that He STOOD and cried His calling of salvation in Himself.
 
The recording of this event also by definition of the Feast of Tabernacles also shows the overlapping Sabbatical cycle / Week (70th week of Daniel)! Now since these days of the feast can be seen as years, I believe that is all that it is showing!
It is just showing the last 7-8 years to the starting of the Kingdom of God! 
But John also records the 8th day of the feast and in the healing and judging set before Him / Jesus!
 
As I have said before, I believe that in the account of the Feast of Tabernacles, it was to only show prophetically when the Day / Year of the Lords Revelation would happen! As I teach this, along with the Time of Jacob's Trouble (3- sets of 7 years with the last set concurring with the overlapping Sabbatical cycle of the 70th week of Daniel!) and much more, it should be the Jewish year from Tishri 1st 2013 to the same in 2014!
 
BUT, DID JOHN ALSO RECEIVE WHEN THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST WAS TO HAPPEN IN THAT LAST YEAR?
 
Note that the whole of the account of the feast of Tabernacles (all 8 days) is recorded in John 7- 10:21!  But the very next verse is that of:
John 10:22-23
And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
 
Solomon renown for His wisdom and righteous judgment! Now this is the feast of dedication or Hanukkah!! DID THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVE THE PATTERN OF THE YEARS / YEAR IN TABERNACLES THAT THE LORD WOULD COME AS IT WERE IN SECRET (Rapture) AND THEN THE TIMING TO THE LIGHTS, CANDLES, LAMPS OF THE MENORAH / CHURCH IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING??  
WHICH WOULD BE ON THE LORD's DAY / YEAR! NOW LOOK AT THE REVELATION OF CHRIST!
 
Revelation 1:7
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him:and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
 
THE LORDS DAY / YEAR!
 
Revelation 1:10
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
 
Revelation 1:12-13
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
 
7 candle sticks-  MENORAH. WITH CHRIST IN THE MIDST...THE 8th?? CAN YOU SAY HANUKKAH? And with The Lord clothed as our High Priest!  Now look at the rest of His countenance / appearance!
 
Revelation 1:12-18
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars:and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword:and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. (SET FOR JUDGMENT OF THE CHURCH(s) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. THE RESURRECTION!!  SEE LAZARUS ABOVE!!
 
NOW FOR THE JUDGMENT OF THE CHURCH(S)!! OUR JUDGMENT AS BELIEVERS IS ONLY FOR OUR WORKS AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST!! 
LOOK!!!
 
Revelation 2:1-2
Chapter 2
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I KNOW THY WORKS, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil:and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
 
Revelation 2:8-9
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I KNOW THY WORKS, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
 
Revelation 2:12-13
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I KNOW THY WORKS, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is:and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
 
Revelation 2:18-19
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I KNOW THY WORKS, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
 
Revelation 3:1
Chapter 3
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I KNOW THY WORKS, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
 
Revelation 3:7-8
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I KNOW THY WORKS: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it:for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
 
Revelation 3:14-15
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I KNOW THY WORKS; that thou art neither cold nor hot:I would thou wert cold or hot.
 
YES, ALL 7 ARE BEING JUDGED FOR THEIR WORKS!
Will the judgment seat of Christ happen before we get to heaven? No! That is why in Chapter 4 we see that the Judgment seat of Christ upon the sea of glass is empty and the believers are already crowned and on thrones/ seats! But the main point is that it MIGHT HAPPEN AT THE TIME OF THE FEAST OF DEDICATION / HANUKKAH! 
BUT LOOK THEN IN JOHN's GOSPEL TO WHAT HAPPENS (SHORTLY) AFTER  HANUKKAH! 
 
At the feast of dedication:
 
John 11:44-46
And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes:and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.
 
SAME DAY NARRATIVE of :
 
John 11:49-52
And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself:but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
 
NOW FROM THE FEAST OF DEDICATION ABOVE JOHN JUMPS TO PASSOVER! And we have the prophecy of Jesus being killed! And how was it that John the Baptist described Jesus?  As the "LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD"!!
 
IF WHAT IS DESCRIBED IN ITS ORDER IN JOHNS GOSPEL IS PLAUSIBLE, IN THAT THE TIMING OF THE YEAR / DAY OF THE LORD IN TABERNACLES, THEN THE RAISING OF THE DEAD AND JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST AT HANUKKAH, THE REASON OR MEANS IS FOUND IN PASSOVER BY CHRIST's DEATH!
 
THE PATTERN OF THE LAST TWO ARE FOUND IN THE REVELATION WITH THE CANDLESTICKS (menorah) and Christ being the 8th in the midst, the resurrection having happened with the call to heaven (at least of John in his vision) and then the one who is able to accept the Seven sealed scroll!!  And that is:
 
Revelation 5:6-7
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
 
JESUS CHRIST!!
 
DOES THE REVELATION ITSELF POINT TO THE FEAST OF DEDICATION / HANUKKAH??  OR IS IT JUST A HUGE COINCIDENCES BETWEEN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN AND HIS WRITING OF THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
 
Please come Lord Jesus to the establishing of your righteous Kingdom!
