Woe! Sign of Two Witnesses of Revelation

REENACTMENT OF ANOINTING THE HIGH PRIEST TO BE HELD ON LAST NIGHT OF HANUKKAH Israel365news

I am amazed how the past several months of posts come together as background for this sign.

Actually, today I planned to post my most recent research about the Jewish lunar calendar, how it aligns perfectly with Daniel’s “70 weeks”, (Dan. 9). Not merely 70 times 7 years, but literally 70 weeks.

In summary, most events at the time of the restoration of Israel after the 70-year exile as found in the books of Daniel, Haggai, Ezra, and Zechariah are dated to be seventy weeks (490 days) after crucial anniversaries in the history of Israel to do with the “abomination that causes desolation”. Indeed, this has been the theme of the past few posts. Here is one of the charts I planned on putting out today.

Feel free to skim over the chart.

Daniel 70 weeks chart with literal weeks. Another 490 days extend before this as well, to 539 BC — just before the fall of Jerusalem on the anniversary of the 49th or 50th anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem in 589 or 588 BC. The dates in this chart perhaps better work placed back one year, which is possible. Reference to a “fast” that Daniel was keeping at the time when the angel Gabriel came to him (Dan. 9:3), which likely was on Tam 9, Av 7-10, Teb. 5th, 10th, depending on a fall to fall (539-538 BC) or spring to spring (538-537 BC) dating methodology for Dan. 9:1. Either is possible. See Zech. 7:1-3; 8:19.

The above is going to connect with the sign of the Two Witnesses that occurred this very day, Dec. 6, 2021.

Footnote: The 8th day of Chanukkah was celebrated Dec. 5th after dark, and the lunar day lasts unto the evening of Dec. 6th. In our calculations, any portion of the entire 8th day is included. 

I know that this is complicated, but the solar-eclipse sign of the sun's shadow moving backward on Dec. 4, 2021, indicates a lengthening of the day (and year) as if the 8th day of Chunuakkh was on Tev. 3rd, as is literally the case in 2023 & 2025. Thus, while eight lights are lit this year on Tev. 2 on the Chanukkah Menorah, the Temple Menorah that is lit only has seven lights, the same as with the Chanukkah Menorah some years.).

It is tempting to elaborate further on the above chart. For more information, please click on this comment I made earlier today in response to someone else’s comment.

Actually, I had about 12 comments backed up that I needed to pass. It eventually led me to this comment from Nov. 30 in the post about the “Super Rare Blood Moon” (Nov. 2021).

OIL LAMP FROM HASMONEAN PERIOD FOUND IN CITY OF DAVID
BY ADAM ELIYAHU BERKOWITZ | NOV 30, 2021 | BIBLICAL NEWS
Archaeologists at the City of David in Jerusalem announced this week that they had identified an oil lamp that dates back 2,000 years to the Hasmonean period.

In response, I said:

I was looking for that sort of information the other day and did not find anything. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

And so I clicked on the link that was sent me. I discovered that the sign of anointing oil was to occur on the last day of Chanukkah when the 8th light is lit.

I will now explain how this sign reveals the Two Witnesses of Revelation. But before this, please read this short post from Nov. 18, 2021, to avoid repeating myself.

How is this Chanukah special?

Before I continue, please know that there are different opinions of what or who the Two Witnesses of Rev. 11 are. I personally believe that they are archetypes of many things and are not literally just two people. However, most disagree with that, I know.

Only one thing I ask:

Do not take what is said here to mean that the tribulation period has begun and that the two witnesses are somewhere appearing in the world!

I have said over and over again for the past 30 years, to expect signs to do with the end times leading up to the year 2025 because 2025 is 70 jubilees from when Israel entered the Promised Land (1406 BC), and Israel will be 77-years a nation.

And so it is.

There are already over a hundred posts documenting such signs here on 1260d.com. This is another one. Likely this is only a foreshadowing of the real thing yet to come. But remember, prophecy is fulfilled like a fractal, therefore expect plagues as per Rev. 11, but not necessarily the final fulfillment of all things. This is just a dress rehearsal that leads to something greater later.

On Monday, December 6, a reenactment of several Temple ceremonies will be held in Mitzpe Yericho. The reenactments will include a demonstration of the anointing of the High Priest, and the lighting of the Temple menorah. A new altar will be dedicated for use on the Temple Mount. Each ceremony is an essential element of the Temple service and practical efforts such as these are intended to prepare for the Third Temple. Israel365news

In an attempt to be brief, I will now use point form.

Before we begin, it is essential that you review Rev. 11.

Revelation 11

The Two Witnesses

11 I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”[a] If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.

Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified. For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10 The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.

11 But after the three and a half days the breath[b] of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.

The Seventh Trumpet

15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:

“The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”

The Gold Lampstand and the Two Olive Trees of Zechariah 4 with its 49 spouts. Rev. 11 about the Two Witnesses alludes to this passage

In point form:

  • To the Jew, there are literally “two lampstands” (Rev. 11:4): the regular seven-branched Temple menorah (lampstand) of the temple and the Chanukah menorah  (lampstand) with its eight branches (nine included the “servant” candle). (You will have to do your own research about Chanukah!)

A demonstration of the lighting of the Temple menorah will be held. A Hanukkah menorah (also called a Hanukkiah) has nine branches whereas the one used in the demonstration, made of wood covered in gold and standing at about four feet tall, has seven branches, modeled after the Menorah that stood in the two Jewish Temples as well as the Tabernacle. Israel365news

Thus, “two lampstands” are lit on the last day of Chanukah  — Both “The Temple menorah” and the “Chanukah menorah”!

They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”Rev. 11:4 

  • Rev. 11 draws from the “lampstand” of Zech. 4. In Zech. 4, we are told that the two witnesses “two branches” are the prince (King) and the High Priest, who together symbolize Messiah. Compare to the article’s headline

SANHEDRIN BEGINS TO PREPARE OIL TO ANOINT KING MESSIAH/KOHEN GADOL (i.e., High priest) Israel365news

  • The rehearsal for the real thing (the anointing of Messiah) occurs at a barren hilltop overlooking Jericho. Jericho was the first city conquered when Israel entered the Promised Land in 1406 BC. AD 2025 is 70 jubilees later. Jericho was conquered by marching around it for seven days, then God sent the earthquake that flattened its walls.

13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon. (Rev. 11:12-14)

  • “A new altar will be dedicated for use on the Temple Mount,” Israel365news. This is the exact location where the Two Witnesses first appear.

I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles, (Rev. 11-1-2).

Footnote: The 8th day of Chanukkah was celebrated Dec. 5th after dark, and the lunar day lasts unto the evening of Dec. 6th. In our calculations, any portion of the entire 8th day is included. 

I know that this is complicated, but the solar-eclipse sign of the sun's shadow moving backward on Dec. 4, 2021, indicates a lengthening of the day (and year) as if the 8th day of Chunuakkh was on Tev. 3rd, as is literally the case in 2023 & 2025. 

Thus, while eight lights are lit this year on Tev. 2 on the Chanukkah Menorah, the Temple Menorah that is lit only has seven lights, the same as with the Chanukkah Menorah some years.).
  • Rev. 11 tells us that at the end of “42 months” (“1260 days”) the Two Witnesses die, then rise 3.5 days later. As this website has laboriously explained in dozens of posts: Half-a-seven-year period is expressed different way.
    • “42 months” is 1260 days (42 x 30-days-in-a-month), the same as 3.5 x 360 days
    • The Book of Enoch says that 360 x 3.5-years actually expresses 364 x 3.5-years. Thus, 3.5 years on the Enoch calendar (Essene) are 1274 days, with perhaps a leap week, too (1281 days)
    • The Jewish calendar has 1270 days, and sometimes 1299
      • However, a pure “42 months” is just 1240 days, such as the Muslim world uses today
  • Hanukkah is one plus seven days. (The oil for one day lasted eight, a “miracle”). Hanukkah begins at the end of the 24th day of Kislev, after evening, the 25th day
    • The prophet Haggai lays great stress on 520 BC, Kislev 24th by repeating the date three times and tells us to give careful thought to that day. Why? Because it’s an example of Daniel’s “seventy weeks”. From the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem on Av 7th, 586 BC to 521 BC, plus 490 days is Kislev 24, 520 BC, (Haggai 2:10-23)
    • If a 3.5-year period on the lunar calendar is 1270 days, thus seven years is 1270 + 1270 days. It happens that 520 BC, Kislev 24th plus 1270 + 1270 YEARS is Kislev 24th, 2021, that is, the day before Chanukah about which we speak! Think about that! (Moreover, I happen to refer to 1270 + 1270 YEARS in the previous post — Coincidence?)
    • Recall that 2025 is 70 jubilees from when Israel entered the Promised Land, 49 x 70. This is the same as 490 Sabbath Years (Shmitas). Thus, the 490th Shmita intersects seven years of years! (Moreover, Haggai’s temple took 3.5 years to build, 520 to spring 516 BC.)
        • When the Two Witnesses die, the world gives gifts to one other for half a week (Rev. 11:10). Chanukkah is also a time to give gifts to each other, and when a day is as a year, 3.5 days become 3.5 years. This brings us to the most spectacular of timing!

Let us now count 3.5 years from the 8th day of Chanukah when the sign of the anointing of the King /Highpriest is acted out, and the new altar is dedicated. (On the evening of Dec. 6th, 2021.) www.israel365news.com/263584/reenactment-of-anointing-the-high-priest-to-be-held-on-last-night-of-hanukkah/

First, we use the Jewish lunar calendar:

After “42 months” and “3.5 days” the Two Witnesses rise up before the eyes of their enemies, which is Iyar 5/6 — the 77th anniversary of Israel (2025) when they became a nation before the eyes of their enemies.

However, 3.5 years is normally 1270 days, which is one more month, that is, 1270 days brings us to Pentecost, 2025. Pentecost is the day when God rose up the Church and breathed into them a breath “like a mighty rushing wind” — the gift of the Holy Spirit.

11 But after the three and a half days the breath[b] of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. (Rev. 11:11)

However, in this case, the next 3.5 years span not 1270 days, but 1299, which brings us to the anniversary of the call of Ezekiel, when God descended in His heavenly chariot, which is symbolic of the ascension and return of Jesus Christ.

See the previous post:

Moreover, the then-future sign of the anointing oil about which we speak was purposely first announced on the anniversary of the covenant with Noah, “8th month 27 the day”.

“The Temple and the Temple service benefit all the nations,” Rabbi Weiss explained. “For that reason, we made the announcement on the 27th of Cheshvan, (2021), the day that Noah exited the ark and made a sacrifice to God. Israel365news

  • It happens that 3.5 lunar years later (1299 days) is Iyar 27th, the anniversary of when Jesus ascended up to heaven in a cloud before the eyes of men.

Compare:

12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. (Rev. 11:12)

But what about the Enochian calendar of 1274 days?

  • It happens that because 1270 + 3.5 lunar days equals “1274 days” (3.5 Enochian years), therefore, from Dec. 6th, 2021, plus 1274 days is also Pentecost on the lunar calendar, 2025.

Now, the first Pentecost (1446 BC) occurred when Moses ascended up Mount Sinai into the cloud of God’s presence before the eyes of Israel.

12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. (Rev. 11:12)

If we include the leap week that I mentioned earlier, then 1274 + 7 = 1281 days, well, then we simply include the week of Chanukah and arrive once again at Pentecost. (However, the Bible also speaks of trumpet blasts “seven days” at the time Moses went up the Mountain. Compare to Rev. 11:15 about the “seventh trumpet”!)

What about the 360-calendar (1260 days)?

It happens that on the 360-calendar, 1260 plus 3.5 days from the evening of Dec. 6th, 2021, brings us to the morning of the 27th day, 2nd month. Once again, that’s the anniversary on the 360-calendar for when Jesus ascended up to heaven!

Thus, both the 360 and lunar calendars arrive at the anniversary of when Jesus ascended up to heaven in a cloud.

12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. (Rev. 11:12)

By now I hope you see that this evening, Dec. 6th, 2021, is the sign of what might have been — the start of the ministry of the Two Witnesses so as to culminate in the 70th jubilee from when Israel entered the Promised Land, which is 70 x 7 x 7 years.

2300 days (& half that, 1150) & “the temple” (Rev. 11:1)

He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.” Dan. 8:14

I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers… And I will appoint my two witnesses… Rev. 11:1,3

Daniel 8 prophesies regarding “2300 evenings and mornings”, which is 2300 days and/or 1150 days. This was initially fulfilled in 165 BC, from whence comes Chanukkah. “Chanukkah” is Hebrew for “dedication”.

On the 360-Calendar, the dedication on Dec. 6, 2021, is “the 9th month, 23rd day (and after evening) 24th day. 1150 days later in Adar 3rd in 2025 (i.e., “11th/12th month, 3rd day”).

Compare these two dates:

‘From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid. Give careful thought: Haggai 1:1; 2:18

The temple was completed on the third day of the month Adar, in the sixth year of the reign of King Darius. Then the people of Israel—the priests, the Levites and the rest of the exiles—celebrated the dedication (“Chanukkah”) of the house of God with joy. Ezra 6:15-16

Zerubabbel’s temple of the books of Ezra, Zechariah, and Haggai, informs us that the temple was restored after a little less than 3.5 (or 4.5) years, on Adar 3rd, 516/515 BC. In our discussion of the lunar calendar, we said that Haggai repeated the date three times for emphasis, “the 24th day of the 9th month” (Haggai 2). And we said that from back then (i.e., Kislev 24, 520, &  Adar 3rd, 516/515 BC) unto now (Kislev 2021 & Adar 2025) are 1270 + 1270 years (and/or 1270 + 1269), which as days is seven years on the lunar calendar.

Moreover, Chanukkah is the anniversary of the day when the 1150 days ended, (Kislev 25th, 165 BC). Thus, Kislev 24/25 both ends and begins 1150 days, for a total of “2300 days”. And Dec. 6th, 2021, the day of the rehearsal of the anointing of Messiah, the dedication of the altar, and the lighting of the two lampstands, just happens to land on this exact midpoint of the 2300 days!

All Bible numeric on this subject perfectly come together on Dec. 6, 2021. And every calendar system is in agreement, solar and lunar, “God’s faithful witnesses”! (Psalms 89:35-37)

The Eclipses

Even eclipse cycles align, including the shadow of the sun going backward over Antarctica in the middle of Chanukkah — 15 days after the other. This may confirm what was said 15 years ago, that God has “added 15 years”, as well as this old article: Mount Carmel Hanukah Forest Fire on Dec. 2-5, 2010.

Behold, I will add fifteen years to your life… I will make the sun’s shadow that falls on the stairway (sundial) of Ahaz go back ten steps.’ ” So the sunlight went back the ten steps it had descended. Isaiah  38:6-8

The Comet

And the only comet visible with the naked eye became visible on Dec. 5, 2021, and increased over the next week until the glare of the sun overpowers it. It happens that 3.5 days after the Dec. 6th ceremony, the comet crossed “The Serpent Wrestler” constellation for another 3.5 days.

This obviously fits well with our numeric.

Compare the below image with these verses.

Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. (Rev. 12:7-9)

Comet Leonard, 2021, Dec 10-13. “Leo-nard”, means, “Strong as the Lion” (… of Judah!). And with His fiery sword, Leo slashes the “Head of the Serpent” (constellation).
View of the sky from Jerusalem, Dec. 6, 2021, on or about when the comet first became visible to the naked eye. Observe “Virgo” on the right, (Rev. 12:1). Also, see the next post with pictorial presentation of Rev. 12.

What about 70 jubilees as reckoned by the Sanhedrin today?

Now someone might object to a 49-year jubilee as attested to in the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch and Daniel 9 and the rest of the Bible, really. But if for argument’s sake we use the Jewish chronology adjusted to the correct date for the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC, we arrive at 1476 BC for the Exodus, the year that Moses ascended up Mount Sinai, (Pentecost).

Well, it happens that “1476 BC” is 70 jubilees of 50 years, which is 3500 years, which is half-7000 years. Remember that the Bible says, “A day is as 1000 years”, that is, as “3.5 days”! (2Peter 3:8.)

But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. (2Pet. 3:8)

Compare:

 For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10 The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.

11 But after the three and a half days the breath[b] of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. (Rev. 11:9-12)

And this “3500 years” is not merely what I said in an article posted here a short while back, but also according to Israel365news  on Nov. 5th, 2021. Below is the chronology posted just before Israel365news. Keep in mind that the actual Exodus occurred 30 years after, (1446 BC instead of 1476 BC).

The Two Olive Trees

Below is another sign that ties into this one. It was posted exactly 16 weeks ago.

They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”[a] If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. (Rev. 11:4-5)
