Hurricane Harvey (And Bill, Hillary, and Don)

This post builds on the previous one about Hurricane Harvey.

I am continuing it here because the former post was getting too long. Storms Bill, Hillary and Don will now be emphasized. We continue with the ‘diary entries’ right after this introduction about storms Bill, Hillary, and Don.

Bill, Hillary, and Don

The past two named storms to directly make landfall on Texas were Bill and Don. Bill in 2016 and Don (at Corpus Christi) in 2011, at the same time when (Hilarious) Hillary on the opposite ocean was mocking God, (or at least her stooge, Bill Clinton was).  (See my Hurricane Articles from 2011. Recall the path of Hurricane Irene, meaning false “peace”. Irene occurred in the middle of the two months between Storms Don and Hillary. The 2011 Harvey is in that same article too.)

Irene occurred between Storms Don and Hillary in 2011. This is the area partly owned by Donald Trump and Kushner. New York would be key in the coming election, especially on issues of abortion.
DC Earthquake cracked the summit of this symbolic obelisk during the short time between Don and Hillary, a few days before Irene struck.

God contrasts Don and Harvey

In a nutshell: God gave American Christians what they asked for.

But the difference between what king Don can deliver to the “Body of Christ” and what King Jesus delivers, is the difference between the rain that Don promised to drought-stricken Texas at that time, and what “Iron” Harvey is pouring out right now!

God rains!

Church, pray for your leaders, but don’t trust them!

Israel, pray for your leaders, but don’t trust them!

Especially when it comes to Israeli peace talks. This is what Trump’s son-in-law, Kushner, was doing when Hurricane Harvey revived.

Saturday, August 26, 2017

I update my article about Harvey, which I initially put out the same hour that Harvey made landfall. (It landed about 6 hours earlier than expected.) I then go to my regular job the rest of the day.

Sunday, Aug. 27

God reminds me of Numbers 7, about the 12 bowls given by the 12 heads of Israel for the service of the Tabernacle of Moses. I insert this new info into the post, along with clearer images of the two bowls formed by the eclipses.  I then go to my job.

(Side note: Immediately after Num. 7, there is a description of the Menorah used in the Tabernacle– perhaps a subtle connection to the bowl atop the candlestick of Zech. 4, also spoken of in the previous post.)

Monday, Aug. 28

“In a nutshell”, I record the meaning of storms Bill, Hillary, and Don. This is something that I have been reluctant to do ever since the election. (I have copied this nutshell summary and placed it at the start of this post.)

Harvey continues to pour out record amounts of rain over Houston.

Tuesday, Aug 29

Awoke with a series of revelations in succession by the Spirit, explaining the meaning of the past week.

Recall the context of the last thing I wrote in yesterdays post:

“But the difference between what king Don can deliver to the “Body of Christ” and what King Jesus delivers, is the difference between the rain that Don promised to drought-stricken Texas at that time, and what Iron Harvey is pouring out right now! God rains!

 First Message by the Spirit of God: God rains!

In Elijah’s confrontation of Baal at Mt Carmel,  Elijah commands four large jugs of water to be poured out on the altar, and he commands that this be done three times for a total of twelve times, “Until the water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench”. (1Kgs 18).

This was significant because I had just written the night before about the contrast of storms Don and Harvey, as to who can bring rain after drought. Drought conditions existed 6 years ago when Don came ashore at Corpus Christie, (which means, “The Body of Christ”).

(The drought during Storm Don’s time began in October seven years ago, and lasted over three years. We discuss this more fully later.)

Southern Texas is experiencing severe drought again this year.

Notice below, the contrast in reports for Don six years ago, and Harvey now.

(If you have the time, see my article of six years ago. It’s interesting to read about these storms from six years ago in light of the presidential election outcome this year!)

Keep in mind that the only named storm to make direct landfall on Texas during the six-year span between Don and Harvey was Bill (as in Bill Clinton!). Both Don and Harvey made landfall near or at Corpus Christi, which means, “The Body of Christ”.

God has a message to “the Body of Christ”!

Don and Harvey Contrasted

NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
400 AM CDT SAT JUL 30 2011

“THE DON IS DEAD. THE CYCLONE LITERALLY EVAPORATED OVER TEXAS ABOUT AS FAST AS I HAVE EVER SEEN WITHOUT MOUNTAINS INVOLVED. DON HAS NO CONVECTION…MEAGER RAINFALL…AND ONLY A SLIGHT SIGNATURE IN SURFACE OBSERVATIONS AND RADAR DATA. THEREFORE…THIS IS THE LAST ADVISORY ON THIS SYSTEM.” FORECASTER BLAKE

“In my 15 year career, I’ve never seen a landfalling tropical cyclone fizzle so dramatically as Don,” said weather.com Senior Meteorologist Jon Erdman.”


Hurricane Harvey

(10 am, Aug 24, 2017 NOAA Report)  “With Harvey now strengthening at a faster rate than indicated in previous advisories, the intensity forecast has become quite concerning… What’s more astounding is that some of the SHIPS Rapid Intensification indices are incredibly high.”

(4 am, Aug 29, 2017) “Heavy rains continue to spread over the Houston area and other locations in southeastern Texas and southern Louisiana, exacerbating what is already a catastrophic flood event. Rainfall totals exceeding 40 inches have been observed at several locations in the Greater Houston area and southeastern Texas. Storm totals could reach 50 inches in some locations, which would be historic for the area.”

Update: Storm total reached 65 inches, shattering previous records.

Second Message: Elisha’s 6 pair of oxen

After Elijah flees 40 days to Mt Horeb to escape Jezebel, God commands Elijah to anoint Jehu as king and Elisha as prophet as his replacement. Elijah finds Elisha plowing at the head of “six pairs of oxen”. Therefore, the Elijah story is tied to Num. ch. 7, about which we spoke earlier.  This is because both mention six pairs of oxen as well as 12 containers. (In other words, both passages have to do with the 12 bowls formed by the eclipses this century, which was the main topic of discussion in the first post.)

(Side note: The Spirit of God has shown Johnathan Cahn that Donald Trump is patterned after king Jehu. This does not contradict the fact that God now lovingly rebukes His people for trusting in man and his political systems, rather than wholly in Jesus.)

Recall what I said in previous post: there are three X’s that represent three Hebrew-letter “Tav’s”, with the ancient letter for “Aleph” also formed (once). ( Aleph and Tav are the Hebrew equivalent of “Alpha and Omega”.) The Tav is the shape of a cross, and the Aleph was originally the shape of an ox (for sacrifice). Thus we have three crosses and a sacrificial ox. This reminds us of Jesus, who was sacrificed between two crosses. (And recall the sacrificial oxen of Num 7, and also that of Elijah’s.)

Third Message by the Spirit: Elijah’s 40 days

(Read 1Kgs 18-19.)

In the story of the confrontation with Baal,  God sent fire down from heaven to consume the sacrifice for a sign as to who was the true God.

Next came the deluge of rain after Elijah prayed seven times, which ended the drought.

Next, Elijah flees “one day” into the wilderness to escape queen Jezebel, (1Kgs 19:3).

Next, an angel gives bread and a jug of water twice to Elijah. This enables him to travel “40 days and 40 nights” to Mt Horeb. At Horeb, God commands Elijah to anoint Jehu as king and Elisha as his successor.

Why flee to Mt. Horeb?

Because Horeb is where Moses received the law. Moses was up that mountain for 40 plus 40 days. Tradition informs us that this last 40 days on Mt Horeb/Sinai, (in which Moses fasted like Elijah), ended on the Day of Atonement. And it was during this last 40 days that the plans for the Tabernacle was given to Moses by God.

As many have pointed out, the eclipse on August 21st is also 40 days to the Day of Atonement. However, this is not strictly true. It’s really. “One day, plus 40 days” (like Elijah). The extra day is necessary in order to include the Day of Atonement itself.

Thus for both the eclipse and for Elijah, we must calculate ‘one day, plus the 40 days’ to arrive at the Day of Atonement in order to agree with the 40 days of Moses. In other words, the time frame given in the story about Elijah precisely matches the span from the eclipse to the Day of Atonement. Both are in agreement with the 40 days of Moses. This 40 days signals a period of testing.

Fourth Message: Baali’s Beads!

The fire that blazes like a diamond ring from around the sun during a total solar eclipse (along with the corona radiating outward) is symbolic of fire coming down from heaven to consume the sacrifice. The phenomenon thus speaks of the fire of God falling, as it literally did for Elijah. (And also in a sense, like Jesus on the cross, when the sun refused to shine before that Holy Sacrifice).

This fiery diamond ring effect is known as Baily’s beads, as seen below.

Baily’s Beads” is God’s play on words for Baali’s Beads. (“Baali” means, “My Baal”, or “My Master”.) God mocks Baal once again!

Elijah was asking backslider Israel the same question:

Who is your master?

Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” …The god who answers by fire—he is God.” (1Kings 18)

In other words, whose beads of fire are they?

Are they Baali’s beads or the Lord’s beads?

“And it shall be at that day, saith Jehovah, that thou shalt call me Ishi, and shalt call me no more Baali. For I will take away the names of the Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be mentioned by their name.” (Hoses 2:16-17.)

After the fire falls, then came the deluge from Hurricane Harvey, on a ground as hard as iron.

The Texas drought during Storm Don’s time began October of 2010. It lasted over 3 years. This is the same length of time that Elijah’s drought lasted, too. And scholars point out that the 3.5-year drought of Elijah (Luke 4:25) was cut short from a full seven years: (For example, recall the seven-year drought in the days of Joseph.)

“The majority of Texas is currently experiencing in drought that started in October 2010. Most of the state has been under drought conditions for over three years.” (By “StateImpact”)

Even thought the 2010 drought is long over, things were again severe in southern Texas this year, about Corpus Christi and south. And it happens that exactly seven years had transpired from when that first drought began, up to now when God poured down the rain of Harvey. God spared Texas the full seven years of drought, but the point remains unmistakable. God controls the rain. Not man. Not global warming. God does!

Notice how Corpus Christi and west received much needed rain without too much, but east of there was inundated. Spiritually speaking, God makes a difference between His people and the world. (We are using city names as symbols, not realities. One city may not be more wicked than anther.)


Angry Birds!

What I say next sounds crazy, I know. But I’ll say it anyway, because God keeps validating it!

Today, God asks you a question, like Elijah asked.

Who is your master?

Who can take you to heaven?

Is your future in the stars or Jesus?

NASA or Jesus!

Like Hurricane Ike, the Lord has His eye on NASA!

NASA is puffed up like a silly dove! But a bird of prey will humble her.

The Lord soars on high!

Owl shaped like Galveston and Trinity Bay, Texas, where the greatest deluge from Harvey occurred. (The record 52 inches of rain occurred just above the birds head when compared to the below photo.) The above image was drawn a year before Hurricane Ike and is called: “The Prophetess Sees, (with special glasses), the Coming Storm.” The bird of prey eyes NASA Johnson Space Center. The eye of Hurricane Ike nine years ago passed exactly over the eye-ball of the bird and the eye-ball of the silhouette of prophetess. She see Houston. The bird sees NASA. She symbolizes the Church. NASA is the focal point of God’s wrath, not for exploring, but for failing to give God the glory for the heavenly marvels seen.
(Click to enlarge) Hurricane Ike is short for Isaac. Ike passed directly over the same place that broke Harvey’s rain-record of 52 inches, (directly above the bay/birds head!) Harvey occurred on the 9th anniversary of Ike (360 cal.), which was also the seventh day of Tabernacles (on 360 calendar of the Prophets). (God gave a calendar for Israel, and many others to all nations, (Acts 17:26). But the 360 calendar is for men and angels, because it marks both small and vast periods of time.
The bay is shaped like a puffed up bird. Wings and tail to the right. Head at left atop puffed out breast. Talons outstretched below. Compare to prophetic image of ten years ago.

Fifth Message: King Donald Trump

(1Sam. 8-12.)

When Israel asked for a king to replace the Lord, He gave them Saul. God sent mighty rain and thunder by the command of Samuel the prophet to rebuke their wish for a king. But the deed had already been done about a year earlier. It was now time to officially own their earlier decision.

In the same way, God sent the storm by the hand of Elijah to turn back Israel to Himself. God is using Hurricane Harvey to remind His people that ‘the Lord, He is God’, and to not put their trust in man. God sent continuous lighting, tornadoes, wind, and rain with Harvey, –rain, rain, rain — to make His point clear.

Please bear with the following lengthy quotation, for this is what the Spirit is saying to America concerning Donald Trump, king Jehu!

16 “Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes! 17 Is it not wheat harvest now? I will call on the Lord to send thunder and rain. And you will realize what an evil thing you did in the eyes of the Lord when you asked for a king.”

1Sam. 12:18 Then Samuel called on the Lord, and that same day the Lord sent thunder and rain. So all the people stood in awe of the Lord and of Samuel.

19 The people all said to Samuel, “Pray to the Lord your God for your servants so that we will not die, for we have added to all our other sins the evil of asking for a king.”

20 “Do not be afraid,” Samuel replied. “You have done all this evil; yet do not turn away from the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart.21 Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless. 22 For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own. 23 As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right. 24 But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 25 Yet if you persist in doing evil, both you and your king will perish.”

{Update, Sept 2, 2017: Three days after the above word, a dozen or two Christian leaders representing the people of God, in full view of the media, laid hands on President Trump and prayed for him. Thereby, before the world and before God they reaffirmed Trump to be their choice as king on behalf of a large segment of the church.

Thus, they fulfilled the said pattern of king Saul by reaffirming their support of him as their leader about a year after his election by God. Men chose their Saul, but God has chosen Trump to be like king Jehu, “and drain the swamp”. Trump also made this Sunday to be a day of prayer for those suffering in Texas, which thing we should do and more. It’s now up to Trump to stay “little in his own eyes” and fulfill his call.

. 13 Now here is the king you have chosen, the one you asked for; see, the Lord has set a king over you. 14 If you fear the Lord and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and if both you and the king who reigns over you follow the Lord your God—good!  (1Sam 12)}


When God repeats Himself three times, it’s always for emphasis:

Houston is experiencing its third ‘500-year’ flood in 3 years.” A statistical improbability. Surely, God is trying to speak to Houston, the fifth largest city in America!

Pour out the jugs of water three times, cried Elijah!  (IKings 18:34-35).

 “Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”

“Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.

“Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time. The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.”

Interesting how NASA Space Center was closed down due to Harvey, surrounded by water.

“After a weekend of bruising winds and relentless rain, Houston’s rising floodwaters reached the gates of the Johnson Space Center on Sunday. (Washington Post)

“The James Webb Space Telescope, for example, the $8.6 billion successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, is sealed in a thermal vacuum chamber at Johnson first used in the Apollo era. NASA released a statement saying “there are no concerns” regarding the telescope and other essential equipment, however the flood waters surrounding the facility will likely continue to rise and rain continues to fall in Houston.” (Popular Mechanics)

Harvey also jabbed towards land three time, reflecting the three chief outburst of rain during the length of the storm, with the middle jab near Galveston bay.

The second of three passes towards or into shore. This second jot towards shore late Tuesday, would end up dumping 26 more inches over the next 24 hours in the coastal cities of Beaumont and Port Arthur before making final landfall in Louisiana.

Sixth Message: 12 Baskets of Bread

The first post was all about the 12 bowl-shaped eclipses, formed by 24 annular eclipses.

Remember the 12 bowls of flour (Num. 7) given by their 12 leaders, each representing a tribe of Israel?

These 12 bowls are in parallel to the 12 baskets full of bread fragments gathered by the 12 apostles after Jesus fed the 5000. Therefore the 12 bowls of flour (bread) parallels the 12 baskets of bread. And notice the prominence of the numbers 12 and 7 again.

“When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?” They said to him, “Twelve.”

“And the seven for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?” And they said to him, “Seven.” And he said to them, “Do you not yet understand?” (Mark 8:19-21)

This was said by Jesus in response to the following…

14 Now they had forgotten to bring bread; and they had only one loaf with them in the boat. 15 And he cautioned them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” (Mark 8:14-15.)

Thus, Jesus was warning them about the hypocrisy of religious and civil leaders.

Seventh Message: Jesus comes on a day that you do not expect!

In the previous post I pointed out that the eclipse began on the first of the eight days of the Feast of Tabernacles on the 360 calendar of the Prophets. (See 360-days Calendar Converter for August 21, 2017.)

The Spirit quickened me to recall that during the literal feast of Tabernacles, the outpouring of jugs of water were important. (The Feast of Tabernacles commemorates the 40 year wandering in the desert when Israel came out of Egypt.)

I do a quick search on the internet to refresh my memory and find out that during the first seven days of the feast of Tabernacles, the priests would carry up jugs of water and pour them out on the ground, symbolic of the water that Messiah would one day bring. Then on the 8th and “greatest day of the feast”, they would no longer do this in order to symbolize that Messiah has come.

In John 7, the bible records that Jesus, the source of all water/life, surprised every one by suddenly showing up in the middle of the seven days of the feast (just as Harvey surprised everyone Thursday morning, 3.5 days into Tabernacles –on 360 calendar). Then on the 8th day of the feast, Jesus said the following:

(Note: This “8th day” corresponds to yesterday, August 28th, 2017, on the 360 calendar, which is when I felt released in my spirit to post about Don and Harvey. In a nutshell, “God Rains!”‘)

37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. (Note: The Spirit was poured out on Pentecost, meaning “fifty“, and hence, “fifty inches of rain”!)


Trump Like King Cyrus?

Many have seen the similarity between Donald Trump and the pagan king Cyrus in the book of Isaiah, who was anointed to rebuild the temple of the Lord.

About ten years, this word concerning king Cyrus came to me. King Cyrus is contrasted to King Jesus, (just as Don was to Harvey.) It is spoken from the perspective of a cherub, but on behalf of Christians. And it is my profession. Let it be yours!

Is Jesus -- even His blessed One -- like the transgressor (king) Cyrus!?!

Is my Maker (merely) like a rich man or even like a great cherub!?!

Who is Jesus?

(He is)My God!

My Master! 

My Prince! 

My Righteousness!

My Inheritance!

My Perfect One is Jesus!

Who is My Great One?

Jesus is God!
Isaiah 45-46. Cherub weighs the house of Israel in balances.

Conclusion

Dark days are coming to the Church. But also great opportunities to see God glorified in power.

These are  the days of Elijah. This century is the century of Elijah. (May God cut it short in righteousness.)

Be an Elijah!

Stop sitting on the fence!

Beware of the leaven of religious and civil leaders. As far as it is right to do so, obey them, but do not trust them.

Part Two of Solar Eclipse of 2017 (and Mecca and Medina)

(Click to enlarge.) How God marked an “X” over the southern boundary promised to Abraham that reaches along the Nile River to the Euphrates, while blotting out Egypt (Thebes), Mecca and Medina.

(We discuss the above map in Part Three.)

The following is for those who desire more information.
In this second part, we answer questions that may have arisen from the first part, along with deeper insights.

Click for Part One

The last seven years of Daniel’s 490

The prophecy of Daniel 9 presents the last seven years in the grand 490-year cycle as pivotal.

Subtract seven years from 2024t and you get 2017t. This makes 2017t the start of the 490th Shmita. (Technically, 2017t begins the 489th or 490th Shmita year because the land on the east side of the Jordan rested from war seven years prior, {Deut. 3:20; Josh 11:23}. But this does not affect the actual Shmita year or Jubilee cycles, only the possibility of one additional missed Shmita for several tribes of Israel.)

How the well-known 2014-2015 Lunar-Tetrad Eclipses and the Solar in 2017 are superbly linked

Both the lunar and solar eclipses occur on a Shmita

The year 2014t was the total Lunar Shmita Eclipse, about which I devoted a full year of research and wrote extensively. It was part of a unique tetrad, that is, four total lunar eclipses, each half-a-year apart, each landing on Passover or Tabernacles in both 2014 and 2015 – and is very rare.

Thus, God marked the 2014t Shmita with the lunar eclipse. But because the original Shmita begins from Creation itself (4115t), and it is in alignment with the Conquest (1406), the 70-year exile that includes the 49 years from the fall of Jerusalem to the return (587-538), it is therefore the dominate cycle. As the dominate Shmita, God has marked 2017 by this total Solar eclipse.

Note the divine order: although the sun (solar) dominates the moon (lunar), yet the night precedes the day. So it is with the function and timing of the eclipses.

“And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, …and the evening and the morning were the fourth day” (Gen 1:16,19).

And it is the pattern of Creation itself: God created everything in six days; three days of forming in parallel to the next three days of filling, (Gen 1). Thus, light was created on the first day, but the sun and moon three days later. (Deut 14:28 is based upon this pattern. Also see Dan 9:27, “the middle of the week”.)
Moreover, Jesus rose the third day. He is the Light before Sunlight. His seven-year ministry cut short in the middle. When Jesus hung on the cross, the Sun shone three hours, then Light abnormally darkened three hours – “A darkness that could be felt,” (Ex 10:21-23). But in three days the Sun rose, preceded by the Morningstar, (Matt 27:45; 28:1; Rev 22:16). Ponder this to understand what eclipses mean.

We will not go into detail in this blog, but both Shmitas (2014 and 2017) ultimately have their origin in Creation. See below charts if you wish to know how that works. It’s important if one wants to understand how God calculates jubilees and missed jubilees – to be explained later.

(Click to enlarge images.) All Jubilee and Shmita cycles originate from the Creation in perfect precision.

NOTE: Due to the extra half-year at Moses, the book of Genesis places the Creation at 4115t or 4114n. Moses was already 80 at the burning bush (1447t, Exo 7:7; Num 33:39; Exo 12:2), and hence 80.5 at the Exodus (1446n) when God in effect said, ‘From now on, Spring will be the New Year for you’—thus adding half-a-year. (The amazing effects of Acts 6 await a future blog. And see above charts.)

Moreover, when counting jubilees from Creation, be sure to add one full year because the Shmita and Jubilee are announced at the end of six full years, not seven. That’s why Adam died at 930 –the 19th jubilee of his life.

When does the Jubilee begin?

Jewish scholars (and the Talmud) insist that the jubilee cannot restart until all 12 tribes return to the Land. So, when we speak of the jubilee, we refer to the original one that began 1406 BC. As it is written…

“When ye come into the land which I give you (1406 BC), then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto the LORD… In the seventh year shall be a Sabbath,” (Lev. 25:2,4 KJV).

As we will show, although men no longer keep the jubilee (and collectively, Israel never kept it anyway), yet God still tracks it!
Why does God track it?

Because it symbolizes and proclaims the First and Second Comings of Jesus Christ. “HE IS OUR SABBATH REST”! (Hebrews 3-4).

Important side note for the advanced student: the modern Jewish year from Creation (3761t BC), which is based upon faulty chronology, is nevertheless perfectly aligned. Not long after Christ, in an attempt to appropriate known facts, yet force the terminus ad quem of Dan 9 to be AD 70 (68), someone determined the Conquest as c.1273 BC, and eventually the date stuck.
But the effect was providential!

The Conquest date of 1273 BC simply shifted forward seven Metonic cycles (133 years) from its true date of 1406, with the effect that 1273 now aligned with the jubilees from the actual Creation date of 4115t, (and with 930, 734, 685, 587, 538 BC (i.e., 931t et al).

On the other hand, (to agree with Ezek 40:1) they invented a 14-year delay from the Conquest until when, allegedly, the jubilees officially began. This meant that according to their reckoning the first jubilee began in 1259 BC. However, the effect of this was to shift the jubilee three cycles ahead of the correct date of 1406 BC!

(1406 less 49*3 = 1259 BC, plus 14 years is 1273.)

In other words, according to Jewish reckoning, (which is the very datum used in Israel today), 2024t-2025t is the 67th jubilee (had they never gone into exile), but really it is the 70th. Either way, it’s the same jubilee cycle.

Jubilees are not 50-year cycles, but 49-year cycles

As most bible-students know, a jubilee does not occur in 50-year cycles, but 49-year cycles. The “50th year”, is counted either inclusive or exclusive of the 49th year. (Scholars are divided on the issue.) But either inclusive or exclusive, the consensus view is that the seven-year Shmita cycle remains in synchronization with the 49-year jubilee cycle.

It’s sad that a few still calculate jubilees as if 50+50+50, etc. Both biblical (Lev 25) and extra biblical evidence refutes this, (e.g., Book of Jubilees, Book of Enoch, Dead Sea Scrolls, Samaritan jubilee cycles).

1406n BC is the Date of the Conquest

(Entry to Promised Land, with the harvest New Year commencing 1407t)

1406 BC is the consensus date of modern evangelical scholarship, and confirmed by Talmudic tradition in regard to jubilees, (e.g., Ezekiel’s vision in 574t, or 573n, said to be on the ‘17th jubilee’). It is the date most frequently found in bibles, books, and scholarly articles. Exceptions to this are typically due to the failure to account for overlapping reigns in the chronology of the kings of Judah. The overlap of certain father-and-son kings of Judah is apparent when compared to the kings of Israel. (Or it is the failure to take 1Kgs 6:1 literally.)

Do you believe in coincidences?

If you add up the overlapped years of the Kings of Judah, they amount to exactly 49 years and 10 days (or 50 years and 10 days, depending on whether one takes the fall of Jerusalem to be 586 or 587 BC). This is exactly the number of years in a jubilee –to the very day. It also takes in both the “inclusive” and “exclusive” spans of a jubilee, (Tishri 1 to Tishri 10th, plus the 49, or 50 years).

So then, amazingly, one can even ignore modern evangelical scholarship and the Jewish Talmud and still agree that 2024t is the year of Jubilee!

In conclusion, to the traditionalist Jew 2024t is the 67th jubilee.
To the old-school Christian chronologist, it’s the 71st.
But to the vast majority –and the actual one –it’s the 70th.
My friend, that’s a very large swath of agreement!

The eclipse is in America, what about the rest of the world?
I’m a Canadian. I am fully aware that America does not represent the whole world. But America has been a light to the world. If its light goes out – watch out!


God can delay longer than 15 years!

The gracious 15-year delay that I wrote about in 2009 is nearing the first stage of what could be its end. (We explain how the numeric is tied to Hezekiah’s 15 years later. Generally, the 15 years spanned from 2010 to 2025, but then there is the possible seven years before or after that, etc.

As said back in 2009, and so I say again: God also made it explicitly clear that that if He chooses, He may delay another 15 or 30 years. But incontrovertibly, 2025 is the great bows-eye numerically speaking, spanning back, dare I say, hundreds of thousands of years – back to obscure ages. On this scale, 30 or 60 years is but a month or two – like a mere leap month. Notice in the chart that if cycles of 70 continue from the Creation 4175t BC, one arrives at 2055t-2056 AD. But then again, on a times-ten level, half 70 is 35, and Jesus said that the coming of the End would be “shortened” (Matt 24:21-22). Thus, 2055/2056 less 35 equals 2020/2021???

(That’s why the ten-plus-ten years between the eclipses of 2014 to 2024 to 2034, too. These ‘ten-plus-ten’ years on this scale are like the 49th and 50th year of a jubilee, in this case, 7*490 (as 7*49) from the Conquest of 1406 BC. Also note the rare metonic/draconic total solar eclipses on the Spring Equinox in 2015 and 2034 to precisely mark this 7th cycle of 70*7-years of Dan 9.)

My point is this: we cannot be dogmatic as to when the end will be. Just be ready and watching.

These first two blogs have served to introduce our main subject:
“How did God calculate the missed Sabbath years?”

Part One: Why Solar Eclipse of 2017 Launches 490th “Shmita-Cycle”

(Because, 70 jubilees elapse from the Conquest to AD 2025)

(To Part Two)

Jesus said, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21:25)

God commanded every seventh year to be a Sabbath year –the year of the Shmita. Messianic Rabbi Johnathan Cahn has popularized the Hebrew word “Shmita” among Christians, and we will use the same word in this article. (As we shall see, the modern Shmita occurs three years before the one in 2017. We will explain. But in order to quickly get to the heart of the matter, some anticipated questions will be answered in the next blog.)

“Shmita” in Hebrew means “release”—the “release” from servitude or indebtedness, and to desist one year from field work.  (Lev 25; 26:33-43; Deut 15; Jer 25:11; 29:10; Dan 9; Ezra 1; Neh 10:31; Zech 1:12; 7:5.)

Why does the modern Shmita occur three years before the Shmita of 2017t to 2018?

There is no contradiction!

The last Shmita kept by modern Israel was 2014t to 2015. (The “t” stands for the month of Tishri, roughly our September.)

However, the modern Shemitah does not claim to be related to the original one, which began when Israel entered the Promised Land (1406 BC). The contemporary Shmita is based upon the return from Babylonian Exile. (It very likely commenced 444t BC; compare Neh 8:14-18; 10:31; with Deut 31:10 and Dan 9.)

Therefore there runs two parallel seven-year cycles, separated by three years. Jews today follow the cycle that began at the return of the exile led by Ezra (and Nehemiah), but God also still keeps track of the original one because of its eternal prophetic importance.

Why is the 70th jubilee (2024t to 2025) important?

  • Because the jubilee is comprised of sevens, (7*7).  (In the bible, seven is the number of completion.)

 

  • Because 70 jubilees is the same as seven cycles of 490 years, (the period mentioned in Dan. 9, which also has to do with missed Shmitas)

 

  • Because 70 jubilees amount to 490 missed Shmitas (70*7*7, Dan. 9)

 

  • Because Israel turns 77 years old from its birth as a nation in 1948 to 2025, and Jesus directly links the number “77” to “70*7” in Matt 18:22. (Because, the Greek can read either as 77 or 70*7.)

 

  • Because God graciously delayed judgment 15 years, from 2010 to 2025, just as He did for King Hezekiah. (I spoke about this delay in detail back in 2009.) This delay was accompanied by a sign to do with the Sun back then, too, (Isa. 38:5-8). “Five” is the number of grace. Therefore, “15 years” is 5*3, ‘grace’ ‘competed’. Hezekiah died at 55 years of age.

For example, from the Creation of Adam, 4115t BC (see note at end of article), unto AD 2010, are 5*5*5 jubilees; but because there are 70 jubilees from Creation to the death of Hezekiah, this means that from Hezekiah’s death in 686 BC, to 2010 are 55 jubilees. (5*5*5 = 125 and 125 = 70+55.) Also, from when Israel entered Egypt in 1876 BC to 2010 are 555*7 yrs, which is the same as 1260+1290+1335 yrs. This 15-year delay was explained back in 2009. Moreover, on the Jewish calendar, 2010-2017 are the years 5770-5777, etc.

That’s why the Stock Market did not completely crash in 2015! That’s why Trump!

It’s all about ‘delay’ – until the cup of the Amorites is full. (Gen 15:16) And whose to say that He won’t delay again?

“… and [he] swore by him who lives forever and ever… that there would be no more delay, but that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, the mystery of God would be fulfilled, (Rev. 10:6-7).

The eclipse of 2017 marks the last seven-year cycle before the 70th jubilee

 

  • God has used solar eclipses as signs before. The following is lengthy — but extremely important. It shows that God has used eclipses in the past to communicate His plans and can be expected to do so again. Jesus said, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21:25). Around July of 1406 BC, the same year the jubilee count begins, Joshua commanded the sun and moon to stand still while Israel defeated the Amorites, (Josh 10:12). However, there was another celestial sign left unrecorded that occurred about the same time.

On July 14, 1406 BC, at the front paws of the constellation (stars) of Leo, an actual total solar eclipse occurred. Compare the similarity of location of the two eclipses. (Click to enlarge.)

1406 BC, July 14. Total Solar Eclipse as seen from Rome .
Aug 21, 2017. Total Solar Eclipse as seen from Salem, US.

Thus, the 1406 BC eclipse is the same location as our 2017 eclipse. To understand the eclipse at the start of the jubilees is to understand the 2017 eclipse at the end, nearly 70 jubilees later. Therefore, ponder the following carefully!

On July 14, 1406 BC, as Israel fought the Amorites, the path of the moon’s narrow shadow ominously crossed key demonic high places in one long curved line. It began near the place Columbus would later sail home after discovering America, passed through Spain, then over the seven hills of Rome, then the Greek gods of Mt. Olympus, Island of Patmos along with the seven churches of the Book of Revelation, Tarsus, then along the southern side of the northern border of Israel (thus visible by warring Israel, Josh 10). This includes Mt. Hermon of Bashan where the watcher-angels rebelled. It then continued along the Euphrates river to Babylon, Ur and Eridu (Tower of Babel), then out the mouth of the Euphrates (the eastern-most border that God promised to Israel), and Susa (of Persia), and then finally ends at Bombay India, the great Hindu metropolis.

(Note: My Starry Night program places the path of this eclipse further north about 70 miles — closer to the actual northern boundary. The further back in time, the greater the uncertainty regarding the exact path of an eclipse, but the above map is the mean location.)

More about the Fallen Angels:

Moses prophesied the day he died “at 120 years of age” (i.e., 120.5) concerning the future of the 12 tribes of Israel. That day happened to have been exactly six months before the July 14, 1406 eclipse, (Deut 1:3; 34:7-8). Moreover, there just happened to have been an annular eclipse occurring elsewhere in the world on this very day! On this same day, Moses prophesied about two tribes in particular that when overlapped like the sun and moon foretold the eclipse of July 14, 1406 BC… The tribes of Dan and Manasseh (Joseph).

(Manasseh inherited Mt Hermon of Bashan, the land of the Giants, [Deut 3:11; Jos 12:4; 13:12; Num 32:33]. Dan leaped toward that direction and later relocated near there. The book of Enoch [and other sources] inform us that Mt Hermon is where the angels “sons of God” descended from “heaven”, Gen 6:2, but were judged and sent to the “deep”. Recall that this eclipse occurred in the heavens where the crouching lion (Leo) leaps upon the prey of the “sun” and “moon” overlapped by the eclipse. Compare all this to the key elements of the prophecy to Joseph and Dan.

“And of Joseph he said, Blessed of Jehovah be his land, For the precious things of heaven, for the dew, And for the deep that crouches [like a lion] beneath, And for the precious things of the fruits of the sun, And for the precious things of the growth of the moons…”
“And of Dan he said, “Dan is a lion’s cub that leaps from Bashan.”(Deut 33:14,22).

Yet another total solar eclipse occurred 40 years earlier on the very day that God said, “This month to you will be the first of the month”. This was the very New Year inaugurated by Moses at the Exodus (1446n). (As with the 360- calendar, there may have been a leap-month that year, if so, then the eclipse fell on 2Adar). This total solar eclipse passed over the source of the Nile River (recall the first plague), at Lake Victoria, and was thus visible from Upper Egypt.

(Click to enlarge.) NASA 20-years of  eclipses from 1460 to 1441 BC

Moreover, the Exodus eclipse occurred at the bands of Pisces (Fishes), next to the women in chains (Andromeda).  The bands of Pisces have long symbolized the slavery of Israel in Egypt.

This eclipse on the New Year of the Exodus was also likely at, or very near the same time God that supernaturally brought “darkness over all the land of Egypt three days”, (Ex 10:21-23). (It was the 9th plague, and thus about two weeks before the Exodus, Ex 11:8-12:3).

Six months before this total solar eclipse, which is when the plagues upon Egypt began, there was an annular solar eclipse over southern Africa. Thus, the six (or 7) months of the ten plagues began and ended with a solar eclipse in Africa; the first one upon the former autumn New Year, and the second one upon the newly commanded spring New Year!

“I’ll execute judgments on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD,” (Exod 12:12).

Thus, God marked His territory with eclipses! (God marks the southern border about 70 jubilees later, as discussed in Part Two.)

  • The 2017 total solar eclipse over America has similar meaning. To many, North America is the equivalent of the Promised Land. As a matter of fact, the very day Columbus left port and discovered America, Jews were exiled from Spain. God claims America as His.

 

  • This eclipse divides America in half, and symbolizes a divided nation. (Isn’t this what America has become politically?)“Mene, Mene, Tekel, Uparsin”, “…your kingdom is divided…” (Dan 5). (From the fall of Babylon in 539t BC, unto 2017t are 2555 years. (A solar year is 365 days, and “2555” equals 7 x 365, and therefore is also in alignment with the Shmitas).

 

  • The first major city that the eclipse passes through is Salem, Oregon, which is another name for Jerusalem, meaning “Peace”. Peace is removed from America.“In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion… At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep… Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven”, (Psalm 76:2,6,8). Salem is therefore symbolic of Jerusalem.

 

  • Salem was visited by another total solar eclipse exactly 38.5 years ago. It is very rare for a city to be visited by two total solar eclipses within 40 years. But the 39 years between these two eclipses means that 1979 (Feb.) was 70 jubilees (less seven years) from when God intended Israel to enter the Promised Land, that is, from when they left Mt Sinai one year after the Exodus, (1446/5 BC).

Thus God highlights Salem as a simply play on words to remind us that North America was dedicated to God just as Jeru’salem’ and the real Promised Land was back in 1406 BC.


I will explain everything soon, but as a sneak preview:

(In the following, I have condensed the information for the sake of simplicity and brevity. But we are talking exact years in every way.)

Both 1492-3 (when America was discovered, i.e., “The New Promised Land”), and 1947-8 (when Israel returned to the actual Promised Land) are Shmita years (65*7 apart). And from 1492 to the Salem eclipse of 1979-1986 is one-seventh of the full 490*7 from the Exodus, accounting for the missed Shimitas. And from 1492t to 2024t are 76 missed Shmitas, which in turn span from 1948-2024. And from 1948 to 2025 are 77 years, and thus 11 missed Sabbaths back to 2014t.

This creates a narrowing residual effect like birth pangs, thereby reversing the effects of Leviticus 26:18. Thus, 1492, 1948 and 2014 are all starting points for birth pangs — counting down to the final two years of jubilee (2024t-2026t). Moreover, each of these starting points were marked by rare Passover/Tabernacles Tetrad Lunar Eclipses.

(Click to enlarge.) All Tetrad Lunar Eclipses that land on Passover and Tabernacles up to the present time.

In other words, God is counting missed Shmitas from 1492, just as He did for Israel of old from 1445/1406 BC, (Lev 26:34; 2Chr 36:21; Jer 34:17). The two “Promised Lands” (1406 BC and 1492 AD) are synchronized by one-seventh in the same way that the 1000-year reign of Christ’s (Sabbath-Rest) on earth when He returns will be one-seventh the total years from Creation. (Rounded: 6000 + 1000 = 7000 years. Notice that 3430/3500 yrs are also in synchronicity.) Thus, just as Israel went into captivity according to the years they missed their Sabbaths, so will North America. (We will explain all this in detail later.) Like Babylon of old (539 BC), the fall of the one will mark the restoration of the other.

All numeric patterns in the bible are self-similar because they are a fractal. The first image on the home page of 1260d.com is a small part of this massive fractal, created by these jubilees. It is my joy to eventually explain all this in future blogs.

(Click to enlarge.) The same math that creates patterns throughout the bible and history also creates this language: a supernatural bible fractal of God’s throne room. (It’s one of those images that’s hard to make out until someone explains it; then it’s easy! Also, the colors shift so as to emphasize different aspects of the image, but here it is static.)

  • Every year, all Israel was commanded to go to (Jeru)Salem to celebrate the feast of Tabernacles. However, during the Shmita year they also had the book of Deuteronomy read to them, (Deut 31:10). It happens that just two days before the eclipse (Aug 19-21), as part of the assigned reading to Jews throughout the world, the passage to be read happens to be from Deut 11:26-16:17. It concerns the Shmita and the feast of Tabernacles! Some Messianic synagogues include with this portion John 9-10 that begins with Jesus stating that He is “the light of the world”, and that we should ‘walk while you have the light’. Therefore, to Christians God says, “Make use of the time you have now. Judgement will not delay forever. Unnatural darkness is coming.Jesus said:

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light (Sun) of the world,” (John 9:4-5).

 

  • God keeps track of the regular Jewish (luni-solar) calendar, our Gregorian Solar calendar, and the prophetic 360 calendar. On the 360 calendar of the prophets, “the 7th month, 15th day” (i.e., Tabernacles) falls on the exact day of the eclipse. The 360 calendar facilitated predictions about world events far in advance, such as the date that Saddam Hussein, king of Babylon/Iraq, would hang, and the exact minute of the great Joplin tornado of 2011 that divided their city. Moreover, the Shmita Lunar Eclipse of 2014 fell on Tishri 14th, but which on the 360 calendar that year was the 17th of the seventh month. Therefore, on the 360 calendar, both the Shmita lunar eclipse of 2014 and the Shmita solar eclipse of 2017 occurred on Tabernacles. Recall the scripture:

“At the end of every seven years, in the set time of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles, …read this law before all Israel,” (Deut 31:10-11).

Exactly one month after the 2017 eclipse is the regular Jewish New Year – the official start of the 490th seven-year cycle.

(Note: Providentially, this article was  published July 23-24 (incorrectly shows as June 22), 2017, with one  month left to the eclipse. This is the exact anniversary of the same day and month that Israel mourned for their first high-priest, Aaron, when he died exactly-to-the-day 70-jubilees ago, less  the seven years. [Aaron died 70 days before the Day of Atonement, the day when the jubilee was proclaimed retroactively, Lev 25:8-10. A day for each jubilee till now -- 30 of mourning until Christ, plus 40 till now. Moses repeats the same pattern six months later -- except 70 days to when Israel crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land). The death of the high priest has a similar meaning as the jubilee, for on the day that he dies those who had fled to a city of refuge could return home. Josh 20:6; Num 20:29; 33:39.)
