This month’s critical convergence of historical cycles

AN EXTRA-SPECIAL THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED UP IN EARLY 2012!

A month after launching this blog in late November 2011, I introduced my first readers to accredited Christian journalist and ‘Watcher in The White House’, William Koenig in Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/ Financial Cycles. This referred to his four-year investigation of the work and predictions of the financial markets technical analyst Eric Hadik. (Read About William Koenig and Who is Eric Hadik?)

Erik Hadik built his renowned expertise upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories based upon his discoveries of mathematical-geometrical principles in the Bible!  Erik’s material is published at Inside Track Trading. (My very brief introduction to cycles may be read in the blog’s God-incidences hub.)

After closely following Hadik’s application of those theories to natural and social events, Bill published his findings simultaneously with the launch of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger and attested to having “found (Hadik’s) calculations extremely accurate”. So, it certainly seems the Lord wants His people to learn about these matters.

Before proceeding and if having time and inclination, you may want to get ‘up to speed’ by scanning through my brief blogs on Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year. I’d like to  draw your attention to Erik’s evidence for his thesis on Historic Aprils For USA & Israel. This has led him to dub today, April 19th and the days thereabouts, as being a “Date of Infamy for America”!

Digging into those links will give good grounding for Bill’s comprehensive compilation from four of his 2016-17 reports in.:

The Converging of Major Historical Patterns in 2017-18 and Jewish New Year 5777

(Read document by clicking/tapping title.) This paper focuses upon the significance of 2017/5777 as regards the land of Israel, biblically and geographically. In conjunction with data from Erik Hadik, Bill covers these excitingly informative topics in detail:

  • Donald Trump born exactly 700 days before Isarel became a nation
  • On first day in office POTUS Trump was 70 years, 7 months, 7 days old
  • America’s 45th President, Isaiah 45 and 44:28; Tim La Haye study notes
  • Jubilee Year and liberation of Jerusalem 1917 & 1967 (50 years) in depth
  • Five potential major developments in US-Israel relations in 2017
  • Orthodox Jews believe Messiah’s appearance possible in 2017
  • Biblical origins of 70-nation anti-Israel Paris conference
  • Several scheduled astronomical events are Biblically relevant
  • Convergence of 25, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 100 year cycles re Jerusalem
  • Culmination of four major 70-year cycles from 1948 to 2018
  • 7-year cycle from the beginning of the ‘Arab Spring’
  • Computers and technology 70-year cycle.

Last weekend’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House provides a detailed list of critical events in April 2016, plus timeline of them within this current April – of which we’re all too well aware!

Bill asks, “Were the last two weeks of April 2016 the most prophetically significant period in history?”

Typically, he provides a  detailed analysis of their events and regards this present time as being, “Another prophetically pivotal month: many major headlines and news of final-day nations that will play out in the rest of April” (ie. 2017).

So in this light, it’s very poignant that yesterday Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to hold a snap general election on 8th June, thereby thwarting ‘Remoaners’ plans and thus strongly forging ahead with Brexit!

And today she got the backing of MPs by an overwhelming 522 to 13 votesApril 19th, an exceptionally historic day for the UK!

MOST EXCELLENT!!

Why this September is special – 1: weather & schedule

Readers having a birthday this month already know it’s special 🙂  A couple of weeks ago after reading Economic crises as Shemitah year draws to a close, Tony remarked, “September seems to be a month that things will be happening”.

So I quipped, “That’s why it’s my birthday month Tony! Although not into astrology I used to joke I get the better deal with a birthday on the cusp of two constellations – even better in 2017”.

Joking apart, this particular September is highly significant for at least three reasons.

  1. international events of eschatological relevance. (If new to this topic see brief follow-up post upon launching this blog – Not many people know this…)
  2. the current Shemitah Year 5775 closes on Elul 29, Sunday 13th September.
  3. the last of the current Blood Moon Tetrad occurs as a ‘super-moon’ on Monday 28th September or Tishri 15, first day of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles.

Unprecedented Weather

In keeping with the Orthodox Church, Pope Francis declared yesterday as World day of Prayer’ for the environment “offering our contribution towards overcoming the ecological crisis which humanity is living through…”  The pope said September 1st would give people “a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation”.

As John Kilpatrick remarked on that news in Could this be a September to remember?,  “Wow, we really need that…What about the Creator?”

Stewardship is one thing but it would it have been better praying for global repentance from our increasing inclination towards evil.  Why not emulate Anne Graham-Lotz’s Sept 1st call for Daniel 9 repentance and prayer for peace of Jerusalem and Middle East?

September started with an unprecedented occurrence of three Category 4 hurricanes in the Pacific ocean – a sign of things to come rather than ecologically caused? (Climate-warming science remains discredited.) US Weather Channel reports the hurricanes represent something of a leap: three concurrent Category 3 hurricanes have not yet been recorded. (Category 5 is highest.)

3hurricanes (NASA))

The Atlantic too has an unprecedented hurricane over the west African archipelago of Cape Verde. Monday’s Category 1 hurricane Fred was the first to hit Cape Verde since 1892 and the easternmost hurricane ever to have formed in the tropical Atlantic!

As for our Bank Holiday Monday washout, it’s nothing unusual but we don’t normally get persistent northerly winds. A fortnight’s rain fell that day and sunny Bournemouth on the south coast has had its wettest August on record. But three weeks earlier a forecaster – not Met Office – expected us to “bake in hottest August in years” – abysmally wrong!

[UPDATE 3rd Sept: UK Weather: ‘Polar plume’ = icy conditions this weekend –  figures for August show Wales & SW England at 70% above average rainfall, SE and central S (here) almost double, with Sussex its wettest August since 1946. The UK had wettest summer ever despite predictions for a dry, hot season!! Met Office chief scientist Prof Dame Julia Slingo said, “Seasonal forecasts for this summer suggested temperatures and rainfall would be near normal. However, as the season progressed all the leading models around the world failed to capture the signal for unsettled weather over the UK. We all know that forecasting months and seasons ahead is still in its infancy and much more research needs to be done!” See Soggy Summer was impossible to predict, says Met Office.]

So who’s in control? Definitely not mankind – but ungodly folk think we’re to blame. In a way they’re right but not for the popular, mythical ‘climate change’ reasons.

A September Schedule

For information, here are some forthcoming public events that may be of eschatological relevance. (Thank you to William Koenig [WK] of World Watch Daily and to Revd John Kilpatrick [JK] of Church of His Presence.) First, however, a doomsday prediction needs to be corrected:

Comet strike? – NASA says nothing will be remotely near earth. [The Guardian]

Wed 9th Sept – A re-established and self-declared Israeli Sanhedrin is calling U.S. President Barack Obama to trial for what it says are “criminal offenses” against the Jewish people following the passage of the Iran nuclear deal. [Breaking Israel News exclusive – The modern-day Jewish high court, made up of 71 Judaic scholars and rabbis, plans to bring the American president to trial on Mount Zion on Sept. 9, 2015, four days before Rosh Hashana, the beginning of heavenly judgment days for the Jewish nation – WK]

Wed/Thu 9/10th Sept – US Congress expected to vote on Obama’s Iran deal. A final vote could take place on Friday 11th Sept before the Rosh Hashanah holiday. [WK]

Fri 11th Sept – 14th anniversary of the World Trade Centre and Pentagon terror attacks and last day of trading on New York Stock Exchange before end of the Shemittah. In Could this be a September to remember? John Kilpatrick points out:

“The twin towers concept was proposed in the Shemitah of 1945, it was begun in the Shemitah of 1966, it took 7 years to build it, dedicated in the Shemitah of 1973 and destroyed in the Shemitah of 2001!

“What’s going to be called The Freedom Tower, now  known as ‘One World Trade Centre’, is the new building there and on September 13th there’s going to be a partial solar eclipse.” [from 3:08:50 mark]

Sat 12th Sept – Recently, a  leading authority in mainstream ultra-orthodox Judaism, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, has been giving clear, unequivocal messages the coming of the Messiah is imminent. He is urging Jews to make aliyah as soon as possible (which refers to immigrating to Israel), which is seen as higher spiritual action that can help usher in the coming of the Messiah. When asked about the timing of the Messiah’s arrival, Rabbi Kanievsky answered, “At the end of the Sabbatical year”. Several people have asked the rabbi to verify this, and he has given the same answer each time. This year is the Sabbatical year and it will end on the 29th day of Elul—which in the Gregorian calendar falls on Saturday Sept 12 (sic), 2015. [Breaking Israel News – WK]

NB: See my blog on Rabbi Kaduri’s secret, Who are the Jewish people expecting…?

Sun-Tue 13-15th Sept – Rosh Hashanah, Jewish civil new year begins at sundown 13th September. Partial solar eclipse.

Sun 13th Sept or Elul 29 – The last two Elul 29s at the end of Shemittah years produced two of the largest Dow Jones sell-offs in history. 2001: $1 trillion— est $1.4 trillion was wiped out in five days of trading. 2008: $1.2 trillion was wiped out. [WK]

Mon 14th Sept – First stock market trading day after end of Shemittah.

Tue 15th Sept – UN General Assembly convenes for 70th General Assembly. [WK, JK – who comments as follows:]

“It’s reported there may be a plan to introduce a resolution that will give formal UN approval, and formal UN Security (Council) recognition for a Palestinian state – recognising Palestine without Israel negotiating a Palestinian state at all – it will be done in spite of them (and to spite Israel RB). Will US veto this? My guess it’s doubtful.” [at 3:10:20 mark – emphasis added]

Wed 16th Sept – Congressional deadline to approve the Iran nuclear deal.[WK]

Sun 20th Sept – Sanhedrin to put Pope Francis on trial…he will be judged in absentia. In February 2013 the Vatican officially recognized the “State of Palestine” but, more significantly, the Vatican signed a treaty in June with “Palestine” in which the Holy See switched its diplomatic relations from the PLO to the “State of Palestine.” This treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and, as such, constitutes an official recognition. [Breaking Israel News – WK]

Mon 21st Sept – Hajj to Mecca begins and UN International Day of Peace [JK]

Tue 22nd sundown to sundown Wed 23rd Sept – Yom Kippur and the beginning of the final year of the Jubilee. [WK, JK: this Jubilee year’s calculation isn’t definitive.]

Tue 22nd Sept – Pope Frances arrives in Andrews Air Force base for ‘2015 Apostolic Journey of Pope Francis to the United States of America’. [Schedule – WK]

Wed 23rd Sept- Autumn/Fall equinox.

Wed 23rd – Pope Francis to visit the White House on Yom Kippur. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the Pope and President Obama will discuss a broad range of issues including poverty, the environment, religious freedom and immigration. [WK, JK offers a fascinating observation based upon the scriptural notation of 360 days in a prophetic year:]

“360 days times 49 years is one Jubilee period = 17,640 days. From the date Israel got Jerusalem back on June 7 1967 to September 23, Day of Atonement, is exactly 17,640 days.

“That’s the day Pope Francis visits the White House. He’s the 226th Pope visiting the president on the 226th day of the Gregorian calendar.

“Many wonder if something’s being birthed because that’s the gestation period of the human – it’s 226 days.” [3:13:10]

Thu 24th Sept – Pope Francis will address a joint session of Congress—the first time the head of the Roman Catholic Church will have done so. [WK]

Fri 25th Sept – Pope Francis is to speak to UN General Assembly and expected to discuss climate change encyclical, and speak on the Vatican’s support of a Palestinian state, the plight of the those in poverty, inequality, and more. [WK]

“Interesting to note that on May 14th 2014 French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius claimed, “We are, all of you know it,  on the edge of climatic abyss. In fact, we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos”. It’s interesting that time frame of 500 days is up on September 25th, the very day the pope is to address the UN on climate change.” [JK 3:17:20 – emphasis added]

Fri-Sun 25/27th Sept – UN Summit for adoption of the post-2015 development agenda will be held in New York and convened as a high-level plenary meeting of the General Assembly. [WK]

Mon 28th Sept – UN General Assembly begins its annual debate until 3rd October. One of the main subjects usually is the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Arab countries use this as a time to bash Israel publicly. It is also a time where the leaders of Israel have recently pointed out dangers posed by Iran. [WK]

Mon 28th Sept –  first day of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles) and super blood-red moon over Jerusalem and the Middle East. This will be the fourth one in the past two years. The first was on the first day of Passover 2014, the second on the first day of Sukkoth in 2014, the third on the first day of Passover 2015 and this will be the final one in the tetrad. [WK]  (Note: Previous three were not fully visible in Israel.)

Steering clear of conspiracy theories John had already mentioned the idolatrous display upon the Empire State Building of the Hindu goddess Kali (black one, force of time and change and destruction). He went on to refer to the Large Hadron Collider at C.E.R.N. in Europe, the logo of which is made up of three sixes – 666. Its HQ’s exterior displays an image of the Hindu deity Shiva, or destroyer, and experiments searching for a ‘God particle’ are expected to start this month. It is posited by scientists that its operation could open up a gateway into another dimension and John refers to the Tower of Babel, which is reputedly supposed to have had such a portal.

John says that idol’s identity is the same as ‘Abaddon’ (Hebrew), or ‘Apollyon’ (Greek), in Revelation 9:11 and the ‘Son of Perdition’ (Grk ) in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. He doesn’t, however, refer to what I’d read in SIGNS by Neil Mackereth (as here) about the Tower of Babel being the inspiration behind the design of the European Parliament (click this image for full details):

eu-babel-tower

Watch Could this be a September to remember? from 3:08:00 mark for fuller details of some of the above items. Better still, listen to the whole teaching which, at 2hours 10 minutes length, is quite thorough in briefly covering the Lord’s own feasts, evidence of past Shemittah and Jubilee years and the four deeply defiling, abominable national sins which the Lord has dramatically judged in the past, and thus is soon expected.

In part 2 we consider a couple of the above events from a prophetical perspective.

A prophetic evening with John Kilpatrick, Friday 28th August

Sept2Remember-AUG28

Watch Revd John Kilpatrick live this Friday evening as he presents a topical message, Could this be a September to remember? at 7pm Central Daylight Time, USA.

Click that title for a link to Church of His Presence home page where you’ll see at the top of screen a countdown indicator for ‘Next Service’. This changes to ‘LIVE NOW’ and becomes your direct link to live streaming.

NB: UK VIEWERS – 7pm CDT on Friday is our 1am Saturday morning (BST). Check for global time differences using Time Zone Map.

I’m informed the service will be archived and available in ‘View Latest Messages’ on home page, or use this link to Recent Messages on their media page.

In introducing his message ‘Wanted: Handwriting Expert’ at last Sunday’s service John said that, on his return from a trip the day before, he went to his study and read chapter 5 of the book of Daniel and,

“Just as I was reading about ‘the handwriting on the wall’… as I was reading that scripture, rabbi Jonathan Cahn called me. My eyes were on that scripture where the finger wrote on the wall, and I said, “Rabbi – you won’t believe what I’m reading!” He said, “John, you won’t believe what I’m going to tell you…”.

As the expected ‘shaking’ has already started, next month may see its amplification as a prophetic, historic event. So, the evening promises to be most interesting.

May you be greatly blessed…

Economic crises as Shemitah year draws to a close – updated

What do economists and accountants have in common with prophetic and messianic Christians?

Both acknowledge the likelihood of global upheavals if not severe financial disruption in the next couple of months. Both groups are conversant with the cyclic nature of these events, as previously noted on this blog, but the latter group know how they relate to the Lord’s ordinances as revealed in holy scripture.

Let me update you with brief points from a couple of well-informed secular and Christian sources respectively, namely:

  • John Ficenec, editor of the Telegraph media group’s market analysis Questor column as well as qualified accountant and award-winning chartered financial analyst.
  • William Koenig, White House accredited journalist and founder of the international news service Koenig World Watch Daily, which monitors key world indicators.

john-ficenec_2723835aIn Monday’s Doomsday clock for global market crash strikes one minute to midnight as central banks lose control, John pulls no punches (emphases mine),

Time is now rapidly running out. From China to Brazil, the central banks have lost control and at the same time the global economy is grinding to a halt. It is only a matter of time before stock markets collapse under the weight of their lofty expectations and record valuations. The FTSE 100 has now erased its gains for the year, but there are signs things could get a whole lot worse….”

The strap-line to his video-led report reads: China currency devaluation signals endgame leaving equity markets free to collapse under the weight of impossible expectations. His brief summation outlines why “the great props to the world economy are now beginning to fall”.:

  1. China slowdown
  2. Commodity collapse
  3. Resource sector credit crisis
  4. Dominoes begin to fall
  5. Credit markets roll over
  6. Interest rate shock
  7. Bull market 3rd longest on record
  8. Overvalued US market.

williamkoenig-web[1]That article by John Ficenec featured prominently in Monday’s Koenig World Watch Daily. On Friday, William issued the first in-depth analysis of the Shemitah year situation for subscribers to his weekly report, Koenig’s Eye View from the White House.

[Soon after launching this blog I introduced his long investigation of economic cycles and the work of leading financial analyst Eric Hadik in my 2011/12 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles. It was in the same month in which Jonathan Cahn’s The Harbinger was published.]

In the latest Eye View, William takes a different tack and introduces this new study as follows.

“While reviewing Jonathan Cahn’s ‘The Mystery of the Shemittah’, I felt led to place his revealing and extremely interesting work into the context of what we focus on most weeks and the events and catastrophes detailed in “Eye to Eye—Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel”.

“When my study got close to being 20 pages long, I decided to divide the work into two parts over the next two weeks. This is the type of work where the more you research, the more the Lord reveals (Yes indeed! Emphasis RB). Next week’s part will go into fascinating detail about what took place in each Shemittah year from 1973 to the present.

“The following comprehensive study points to an amazing connection of the land of Israel to the events that have happened at the times of the Shemittah—the last year of a sabbatical seven-year period—and what took place in the last year of the 50-year Jubilee (7 x 7-year periods equaling 49 years, with the final Jubilee year bringing the total to 50)….”

He continues by covering the following points in detail.:

  • post 9/11 US financial situation
  • Obama’s dubious deal with Iran
  • Collision course with the God of Israel
  • Shemitah pattern: 1973 to present
  • Potential triggers and catalysts
  • Unprecedented pivotal events in Sept 2015
  • Jubilee years and Jerusalem (1917 & 1967).

Lots more is promised for this weekend, so maybe you’d consider subscribing too?

UPDATE per Comment below on Coming Financial Tsunami dated 5th March 2013.

The Coming Shemitah & Jubilee Year – I found this Pray4Zion paper whilst writing. Not only is it an excellent primer but it also has an amazing 12/13th Century prophecy on Ottoman ‘eight Jubilees’ rule over Jerusalem and subsequent changes based upon Jubilee years (ie. 1517 to 1917, then 1967 – so what will happen in 2017?). Thank you Lord for enabling Alf & Julie Saunders to bring your blessing.

Jigsaw Time – Part 1: Cahn, Shamp and a prophetic word for 2015

Puzzle Globe and Book by ThanunkornYet once again personal events related to this blog are fitting like pieces of an invisible jigsaw puzzle brought by folk I know or meet online. Also, timing is not ‘coincidental’ but it highlights the merging information as well as insights that flash when falling into place.

The invisible designs they reveal amass in a treasury of tangible signs that could point to bigger ones for Jesus’ return. (To read more about this blog’s regular feature see below.)

My purpose in presenting these ‘pieces’ is not only to share my ruminations but also to consider if, and where, the Lord may be leading me,

Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7 NIV)

Some of the ‘pieces’ appeared recently in this blog; the others I’m ‘brooding’ over before inserting into the puzzle.

So for this particular ‘jigsaw puzzle’ let me lay down the board: a request to Church of His Presence in Alabama to archive a one-off, mid-week evening session. This is so that overseas e-members, whose time zone makes it difficult to watch it live, can catch up with this special event.

Teamwork by Franky242

Then, the following jigsaw ‘pieces’ may be brought and displayed:

  1. Pastor John Michael Kilpatrick enables the event to be archived.
  2. Jonathan Cahn reports on developments in this ‘Shemitah year’.
  3. Fellow blogger Joanne Rolston brings another aspect in Days of Awe.
  4. Meanwhile, I’m writing on Charles Shamp – A Vision: sowing into the Kingdom.
  5. I comment on Jo’s thread about Charlie and another contributor adds a reference to the prophetic word he brought for 2015, for which I then add a link.
  6. Whilst I’m preparing to blog about the Iranian deal in connection with Ezekiel 38, fellow blogger Korey Allen opens a debate on the identity of Gog-Magog. SO,
  7. I check out some in-depth analyses from both sides of the discussion on Russia and Iran, and
  8. Revisit my original extra-Biblical 1980s source to reconsider its information in the light of this debate, especially on the unexpected militant advance of Islam.

The ‘design’ showing on the last three ‘pieces’ relates to the recent P5+1 accord with Iran on its nuclear programme, which I’ve been ‘brooding’ upon in connection with the prophecies. (I hope to blog on this very soon as ‘Prophetic, Historic Days – Part 3’.)

In Part 2 of this post we will look at the 5th ‘piece’; prophetic prayer points for this year published on New Year’s Day and which especially focus upon this September.

Recommended viewing: Jonathan Cahn & Bill Salus

JCahn_BSalus_safe_imageA week ago tonight Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn was the guest speaker at a specially convened service at Church of His Presence. The guest for last Sunday’s service was his friend Bill Salus, author on Bible End-times prophecies.

I recommend both archived services to readers of this blog. First, however, you may like a brief outline:

Jonathan Cahn

Renowned for his ‘factioHarbingernal’ novel The Harbinger, which is based upon Isaiah 9:10, Jonathan updated everyone on events since its publication and my report of last year, all of which strengthens the validity of his theories. Anyone unfamiliar with his thesis will find his recent message a helpful summary, and learn its inception as well as dissemination was of the Lord.

Regarding the Shemitah, Jonathan gives a caveat about being dogmatic on what may or may not happen because, “When you put God in a box He has a habit of getting out!”  God doesn’t have to do anything we think or want, but He could bring about what may be expected at the end of the Shemitah year 5775 on Ehud 29, the last day in the Jewish civil year and eve of Rosh Hashanah (13th September).

Although the most dramatic effects would be at and around the close of this Shemitah year there were fore-shadowings at the beginning of the year. So Jonathan recounted significant events of September/October 2014 and noted the news about plague and an earthquake in the USA on this year’s opening day, as well as an economic shaking and loss of America’s crown to Russia – plus two Biblical signs relating to famine!

“The Shemitah causes the worldly realm to fall and to lift up the sovereignty of God in all things…the changing of world history…

“You want to live in Biblical times – you’ve got it! Welcome to the End-times…”

His focus then moved to America’s double desecration of God’s covenants in Genesis – those of matrimony and of the rainbow. Thus, he declares, “The writing is on the wall” in respect of national defiance against God and rejecting His grace and mercy. In addition to quoting from Daniel, Jonathan refers to the vision in Ezekiel 8 of the abominations in the Temple and relates those desecrations – and the timing of the nuclear deal with Iran (as blogged herein) – to Biblical events on the current Jewish calendar.

Therefore, he is of the opinion a great economic shaking is coming to America and to the world – and it may involve other realms too.

Jonathan covers a lot of exceptionally informative material in 96 minutes. He inspires us with the fact that the potential for national revival is greatest in the midst of judgmental shakings. Thus, we’re encouraged to become consecrated vessels as well as radical disciples. He closes with the very powerful Aaronic blessing in Hebrew.

Bill Salus

BSalus_lopb1vo_1Bill spoke on preparing for the coming fulfillment of prophecies and opened by pointing out,

“The number one sign of the End-times is: they’re all converging!”

In asking where are we on God’s timeline, Bill gave a good introduction to prophecies applicable today, especially Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83 and Jeremiah 49.

Bill’s analysis of events in the Middle-East included many helpful illustrations, especially with regards to Syria, Isil and Iran which, he says, is in double jeopardy because God is furious over their activity. In expanding upon this, he spoke knowledgeably about the rapidly rising number of Christians in Iran.

I was particularly interested in his explanation of the USA’s connection with events through Ezekiel 38:13 – the merchants of Tarsish and its young lions, as meaning Britain and our colonial lands. In all my reading I haven’t read anything else on this in 30 years other than in the very first ‘non-Christian’ book I read on Bible prophecy – The Invisible Hand! (See Welcome and ‘Personal Connection’ in Prophetic, Historic Days Part 1.)

REQUEST: 

“He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.” (Matthew 10:40-42 NKJV courtesy BlueLetterBible.com)

So, if we give more than a cold drink to a prophetic disciple of the Lord we may expect to receive some of their reward too. Then let’s give a lot more than the cost of a drink!

Therefore, may I ask you to consider sowing into those ministries by contributing towards CHP’s broadcasting costs as well as their donations to the speakers. If you wish to do so click donations and, after inputting your details, select the Designation ‘Special Offering”.

(I’m going to share the unusual circumstances behind my learning the significance of sowing financially into the Kingdom – and in doing so here find we’ve gone full circle!)

Morning coffee, forecast financial crash and Jonathan Cahn

Big enough to break into our long weekend, what’s buried in the middle of a broadsheet daily paper is important enough to get me online first thing to tap out a few notes. (In so logging onto WordPress I find a fellow blogger in Arizona has just posted a dream along related lines!!)

On Friday morning it would have been hard for me to miss this headline at the foot of my newspaper’s ‘leader’ page:

“Everything is in place for another big crash”

Nero_6Friday coffee, croissant and crossword starts our weekends. Bringing the yummy-laden tray I find Nina’s torn the crossword off the paper’s back page so that I can read the rest. Being the first of the two days when I buy ‘yesterday’s news’, we read the front-page cartoon and I head straight for the inside – not for editorial, but informative op-ed comments and spot that headline. As Nina writes letters into tiny boxes of the puzzle, I find I’m scribbling notes around this article!

Business, financial commentator and assistant editor Jeremy Warner’s opening shot is,

“Here’s a scary statistic for those meant to know about such things…”

But what rocks my boat in his first two paragraphs is not his mundane explanation – so startling as it is! It’s his reference to this scary statistical financial indicator as being at “one of the highest in nearly 40 years”.  Also, that “business cycles last little more than seven years…”.

Subscribers to this blog who’ve ventured on my recent sorties into the nature of cycles will recognise the import of those remarks.

In fact, well-informed Christians would also recall the financial and biblical facts taught in depth by messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn in his intriguing books The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah. (We are said to be in a ‘Shemitah Year’ that’s coming to its climax in September.)

However, those books are hardly known on this side of ‘the Pond’ to anyone other than a small fraction of Christians. Therefore, I surmise Cahn’s thesis isn’t well known to the City of London’s financial and business world.

So, it’s particularly poignant that Jeremy’s above-quoted opening continues,

“…After a six-year bull market, the typical stock in America’s S&P 500 shares index is valued on a multiple of more than 18 times estimated forward earnings. This is not just expensive by historic standards, but super-expensive. In fact, according to analysis by Goldman Sachs, it ranks as in the top 98th percentile of historic valuations since 1976, or in other words one of the highest in nearly 40 years. It scarcely needs saying that these peaks tend to signal the top of the cycle, with some kind of bear market or crash just around the corner.” (Emphases added.)

Read his brief article online at How central banks have sown the seeds for the next financial crisis. ‘Strap line’ is, ‘The notion that central governments have somehow got on top of the forces of financial stability is for the birds’, which is the last, and summation of, several notable points I’d underlined for use.

J Warner

Jeremy briefly sketches the state of play for US and UK economies and the prospect of Greek default on its debts to the Eurozone. He then considers why economic prospects are precarious when stocks, bonds and other asset prices as are so high. In his opinion, the reason is the aggregation of:

  1. Policies of ‘quantitative easing’ whereby central banks print money, which creates new sources of financial instability within the banking system.
  2. Consequently, portfolios of conventional asset managers have become so swollen that they match those of the largest banks, thereby shifting credit supply from the banking to the non-banking sector. This has thus become the main threat to stability.
  3. Buying power of central bank’s money printing is insensitive to price fluctuations and thereby renders normal market judgments meaningless. Therefore,

“all the conditions are in place for a major train crash”.

Also Friday, Greece’s failure to pay the due installment of loan repayment to the IMF was in the news – but this time its chief, Christine Lagarde, was completely taken off-guard. As analyst Ambrose Evans-Pritchard writes on the same day,

“The International Monetary Fund is in very serious trouble. Events have reached a point in Greece where the Fund’s own credibility and long-term survival are at stake.”

In the midst of all these complexities it’s interesting to read reference to the 7 year cycle as well as a hint regarding that of 40 years, both of which feature in the Bible. The first came to prominence as of vital economic importance in ancient Egypt when Joseph told pharaoh his dream of 7 fat cows and 7 thin cows was prophetic. Joseph interpreted it to mean there would be 7 years of plenty followed by 7 of famine and thus enabled Egypt to prepare for the worst (Genesis 41).

It’s so good we can look to the Lord, for He’s in charge…

George Washington’s warning to modern Washington

US Capitol

Last weekend author Jonathan Cahn came to my attention in connection with an event  a week ago today in Washington, Wednesday 29 April.

And it so happens to involve someone whose work I’d been revisiting that same day in preparing changes to this blog’s menu – plus another personally relevant contact!

Many will be familiar with Jonathan’s bestseller The Harbinger, and The Mystery of the Shemitah. (See Prophetic points on 9/11 and Holy Shemitah Bible cycle...)

As usual, small regard is paid in Britain to events over ‘the pond’, especially in view of tomorrow’s general election. My awareness comes mainly from Christian correspondent Bill and various blogs rather than mainline media. I didn’t know about last Wednesday’s  Washington: Man of Prayer event to commemorate the 226th anniversary of George Washington’s inauguration as first president of the United Sates of America.

This event on Capitol Hill was attended by Members of Congress and church leaders. Many Members ‘delivered special and anointed prayers’, but when Jonathan took the speaker’s podium the stern warnings became loud and clear.

PrayerCahn

I learned about this from Friday’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House and of Bill’s conversation with messianic rabbi Cahn. He links it to World Net Daily’s report Follow Baal and go to Hell, which notes Jonathan,

…smacked down the Supreme Court’s assumption that it has the authority to redefine marriage. Cahn’s comments followed by only about 24 hours the hearing in the august courtroom where the justices heard arguments on whether or not the U.S. government would mandate recognition of homosexual “marriage” across the country.

“The justices of the Supreme Court took up their seats [in a hearing] on whether they should strike down the biblical and historic definition of marriage,” he said. “That the event should even take place is a sign this is America of [George] Washington’s warning … a nation at war against its own foundation.”

Washington warned the smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation “that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself hath ordained”.

He noted the Supreme Court opens sessions with the words, “God save the United States and this honorable court.”

“If this court should overrule the word of God and strike down the eternal rules of order and right that heaven itself ordained, how then will God save it?” he asked. “Justices, can you judge the ways of God? There is another court and there another judge, where all men and all judges will give account.

“If a nation’s high court should pass judgment on the Almighty, should you then be surprised God will pass judgment on the court and that nation? We are doing that which Israel did on the altars of Baal,” he said.

“We are exchanging our light for darkness.”

WND reports Jonathan went on to challenge President Obama: He questioned what happens when a leader places his left hand on the Bible to assume to highest office in the land, but with his right hand “enacts laws that violate the laws of God”.

Emphases above are mine. To read WND’s full article and watch Jonathan’s stirring 9 minute message click here. The full two hours may be watched here.

‘Connecting the Dots’

William Koenig closes his 12-page weekly report with notes on meeting Jonathan at the event. They shared thoughts about some of the big decisions on upcoming events that we’re all watching. They’ve known one another eleven years since Bill first heard the harbinger warning of judgement and call to repentance and salvation in Jesus.

I especially noted the reference to Obama having lied about his position on same-sex marriage in order to become president, as revealed by his former campaign manager, David Axelrod. This and several related serious issues show what a mess our cousins over the pond are facing.

Additionally, in this connection his report reprints one from 7 years ago (20 May 2008) referring to the “Babylonian Talmud” – the book of rabbis’ interpretation of the scriptures 1,000 years before Christ.  This book can correlate present days with those recorded in Genesis. After interviewing Dr Jeffrey Satinover, Janet Porter quotes him on the Talmud statement about the only time in past history when men were given in marriage to men, and women given in marriage to women.

No, it wasn’t in Sodom and Gomorrah, or ancient Greece, Rome or Babylon but during the days of Noah. That’s what the “Babylonian Talmud” attributes as the final straw that led to the Flood and Janet states ‘America’s Rabbi’, Aryeh Spero, confirms that claim.

 A personal enquiry

Also a week ago today, I received an enquiry from Minnesota in response to re-blogging Mark Davidson on a possible economic crash. Thinking I live in the States, ‘T’ asked if I could give any advice on preparing for such an eventuality. Unable to suggest anything more specific than basic measures, I felt I should include:

Also, you may wish to read John Kilpatrick’s ‘Blessing for this Shemitah Year’, as listed in http://churchofhispresence.org/media/downloads/.  He says it came from the Holy Spirit during a conference hosted with Jonathan Cahn, Mark Biltz & Bill Salus.

I got a quick response that The Harbinger has ‘T’ in it and something special from the Lord was received at Ground Zero. T was privileged to have been the only one chosen out of a multitude by the fire chief to be allowed into that area very soon after 9/11.

I can but draw this inescapable conclusion: these ‘coincidental’ actions happening on two specific days on one subject – Jonathan Cahn – serve to validate his message.

Thank you readers for enabling new discoveries and ‘hubs’

Digital Globe with HandThank you, dear reader, for following my musings and contributing whenever you can. I especially want to thank Beverley in Kansas, USA and my friend and author Revd Bill of Wimborne in Dorset. Had it not been for both your remarks a fortnight ago I wouldn’t have found – and done – the new things announced below!

I apologise for causing some confusion in God-incidents validated…- 1. Thanks for letting me know because other readers may have found the same. It’s reminded me of the need for consistent clarity, as well as to restrict each post to only a couple of related topics. Moreover it motivated me to find solutions!

There were intangible things I was sensing about personal events I wanted to share. So I opened the post in question in a lyrical fashion to open the way. But my swinging from poetic notions to factual cycles could have clouded communication.

Before publishing posts I run off a hardcopy and return to old days of ‘steam-age’ typesetting and editing proofs. That one was done as and when possible over a week. Almost last minute, I inserted the Eric Hadik material but left out some insights. What I saw seemed ok but, as emails were failing that day and inputting on WP got slow and sticky (like now), then maybe proxy servers caused a problem? Nevertheless, that post was far too wordy and complicated.

Also I realised that, instead of occasionally repeating necessary explanations in a post, it’s much better for essential material to be centrally available for reference.

New Main Menu

Therefore, first I revised the main menu by merging ‘Do You Know Jesus’ with ‘God Heals Today’ into a new hub: ‘Jesus & Healing’.  To get the menu into an alphabetical sequence for the new-old concepts, I’ve re-titled my personal testimony as Rescued From Hell.

Additionally, I’m putting the basic reference material into new hubs ‘Cycles & Time’ and ‘God-incidents & Jigsaws’ in the menu, each with static pages and scripture. Whenever I cover these concepts in future they’ll be linked to an explanatory page.

SO watch out for the new menu…

First Discovery

interfrc-waves.jpgAlso, I took this opportunity to ‘flesh out’ my notion that time progresses like a cork-screw; ie. time does not go in a straight line!  So I’ve referred back to my school-day maths to give the easy way I was taught on how tides move. AND surprise, surprise – I found a most useful link to illustrate it, and which shows a spiral motion in time!!

By the way, I first posited the idea of a time spiral 25 months ago in a discussion over coffee asking, Is the ‘Petrus Romanus’ prophecy of God? (the St Malachy prophecy about the final Pope).

Second Discovery

Likewise, I’ve fleshed out previous remarks on cycles by further references to financial analyst Eric’s work. As that was over 3 years old, I checked his more recent material on another and later website AND…

I’m absolutely amazed to discover that Eric Hadik also describes time as a spiral. In the ‘Cycles Intro’ to this newer 40 Year Cycle website he writes,

What cycles ARE… is a measuring and projection of time assuming (as has been proven time & time again) that “history repeats itself”.  However, do not expect history to repeat itself in the same fashion, at the same place, and in the same degree, as it did originally.

If it did, it would indicate that all of life is simply revolving in a circle.   Instead, life (the markets, etc.) should be viewed as a spiral – constantly revolving in a circular pattern BUT never returning to exactly the same spot from which it came.  It is progressing – forward & upward – even as it revolves in a type of circuit.

The new hub will include quotations from and links to Eric’s work relevant to this blog, especially to do with global finance Crash Cycles. That link explains in detail the 40-year US Dollar cycle, which has now reached a critical phase. In fact, it seems to support Jonathan Cahn’s claims regarding this Shemitah Year.

April is always of special interest because it has what Eric calls a ‘Date of Infamy’, about which I blogged two years ago in America’s ‘Date of Infamy’ repeated – once again!

Turning of the Tide

Mid-week I attended a prayer meeting where a few intercessors from churches across the area were praying about the upcoming General Election. That day I’d been working on the new page on Time and writing about tides. In the middle of the evening’s prayers I was reminded about that topic and urged, “Pray that the tide turns”, which we did.

Later, I recalled having received reports of similar prophetic words that I haven’t yet been able to process but will do so soon. (Thank you SP)

So, I’m extremely grateful to Beverley Estes and to William Smith for their remarks..

Surprising endorsement of ‘The Fellowship of the Secret’

For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. (2 Chronicles 16:9 NIV)

The recent post about my namesake’s e-book The Fellowship of The Secret’ produced yet another amazing ‘God-incidence’! Thank you to Karolyn in southern California for being so sensitive and obedient to the prompting to act.

First, however, for newer readers and visitors let me clarify what may have given rise to some misunderstanding or difficulty:

The Word of God, the Holy Bible, gives the ‘Best Instructions Before Leaving Earth’ as revealed through the ancient seers and prophets, as well as apostles who personally knew the anointed Son, whom God sent to save us from our sins and reconcile us to Himself. It’s fantastic that we can be in a relationship with Him personally and blessed by the presence and gifts of His Holy Spirit.

Courtesy Victor Habbick at FreeDigitalPhotos.netYet it’s far from easy to grasp the enormity of His work and plans throughout history, from creation to the new earth and heavens, as outlined in holy scripture.

Have you ever looked behind a tapestry? Have you done so without seeing any design? If so, did you try guessing what’s on the other side? Could you trace the threads and notice they disappear and reappear elsewhere. Could you figure out which threads make up a feature of the design? A variety of colours and directions of travel, yet all the threads work together to produce a clearly recognisable picture on the front of the material.

Puzzle Globe and Book by ThanunkornMetaphorically, our lives are on the underside of the canvas the Lord is crafting but we know the general design of what he’s sewing, or painting as a large picture, or even as a jigsaw He’s putting together.

I get excited when His needle pieces through and know His hand is in our lives and events, or when pieces of a jigsaw suddenly appear and fit together as though they relate to His plans and purposes for the world as stated in His Word.

Invisible Jigsaw

Puzzle - Jannoon028And it’s terrific when He works though others to bring those pieces together. Knowing our lives are in the Lord’s hands is good assurance for our inability to see things from His perspective. Can you, therefore, comprehend my difficulty in conveying what’s happening? One way I’ve found is to take note of coincidences relating to scripture or prophecy and especially when two or more follow in close sequence.

Also, there are times when I’ve observed actions and decisions taken by myself and others produce a chain and network of coincidences, as happened during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (here). I described it like an orchestra, where the conductor directs various instruments and singers to make wonderful music. Only weeks later I heard Ian Clayton use the same description for coincidences. He’s of the opinion it’s a way the Spirit of Wisdom helps and tutors us, as Mike Parsons writes in the in previous post.

Bridge Over ‘The Pond’

“God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform”, so begins the old hymn by William Cowper. One of those ways could be ‘God-incidences’. I name one kind of these “Bridge Over The Pond”, and use it for identical prophetical words or teaching delivered on opposite sides of the Atlantic on the same day or weekend. (Eg., over Friday 10th to Sunday 12th April, as noted for The Battle For Inheritance.)

One such instance yesterday caused both parties to marvel…

Endless Bridge by Evgeni Denev

Here’s what happened.:

Before arising on Wednesday I was mulling over that personal 40-year period covered in last Thursday’s blog. So, in a brief quiet-time I wanted to re-read about Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness and specifically about Joshua and Caleb’s return from spying out the land of Canaan. But for some reason I started to read about Moses selecting and sending out the spies, as in Numbers 13:1-20.

Moreover, I was specifically prompted to read and note where these men were from. In particular I noted Joshua and Caleb led the tribes of Ephraim and Judah respectively, which facts weren’t in my memory bank.

Now we had to be prompt in getting on with gardening and Spring cleaning before the sun got too strong – unusually for an English April. As soon as Nina finished in the bathroom I got up, booted up the pc in the office between there and our room and got washed/shaved. Afterwards I logged in and got dressed whilst emails downloaded. All this would save time and be done with as there’d be no time later.

Upon scanning unread mail I spotted one from my namesake and one from Karolyn Polo, in which she introduces herself as living south of Los Angeles, California. She has a good sense of humour and kindly permitted me to publish her news:

“I can’t quite remember how I came to follow your blog several months ago, but I enjoy reading about your journey and hearing about what God is saying and doing in the UK. I suppose I too am a watcher as the events of our time have my attention and the ways they are lining up with Scripture and prophecy.

“I believe we are at a pivotal time when the Body of Christ is finally waking up to the truth that we are to be One  – unified, sanctified and becoming the whole House of Israel/the Kingdom of God.

“I have a brilliant acquaintance that writes an incredibly insightful blog about the coming together of Ephraim and Judah in the hand of God as in Ezekiel 37:15-28, Ephesians 2, and Romans 9-11 among others. I feel compelled to send you the link for this in light of the posting you have made from your namesake Richard Barker.

“Let me just add, I believe you are all “barking” up the right(eous) tree!!! 🙂

“Here’s the link: http://thebarkingfox.com/commonwealth-of-israel/

“Please read through the various articles. I think you will be blessed!”

OH WOT! – WOW!!  What had I read about a few minutes ago?

Ephraim and Judah! I certainly am blessed – so too was Karolyn on learning about this.

So after jobs were out of the way, I replied to her explaining why she was ‘compelled’ to send me the link. Doubtless that’s why it dropped into my mind to check out Numbers 13 and especially note the tribes – “God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform”.

And what Karolyn certainly didn’t know was that link has another to an article about the Shemitah and Yovel (day after Jubilee), about which I’d already noted in researching for my blog about rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s work. I recalled the latter’s importance when writing about 50/55 years, but didn’t explain as I didn’t want to further complicate my blog.

I can only conclude this is very important and the Lord wants me to note it AND got a lady on the other side of the world to email me about it HOURS BEFORE I WOULD READ AND LEARN ABOUT THE SAME THING!

That’s why I notice ‘God-incidences’ and refer to ‘Bridge over the Pond’.

ALSO, all this not only brings divine emphasis to but also endorsement of my namesake’s book, does it not?

Amazing ‘coincidences’ – cycles and Shemitah-Jubilee years

You possibly won’t believe this! Carry on reading only if you have an open mind for, as I’ve blogged before, “truth is stranger than fiction”. The above title could easily read:

‘God-smacked’ by TWO sets of ‘God-incidents’!

Blogging time is currently at a premium. For the past fortnight I’ve wanted to explain  why re-scheduling my wife’s spinal surgery was significant.  Last week began with a couple of ‘quick’ items, and I settled into blogging on this as and when possible. Re-gathering my thoughts the first draft was too long, but I was inspired afresh mid-week.

I was ‘nudged’ to tackle it differently – overkill, so it seemed!  Was I going overboard on a personal matter?  Nudged yet again, “An introduction would help”.  But hadn’t I done enough with musing further upon Paws 4 thought ?? I don’t want to bore readers!

Hand and puzzle pieces - Anusorn p NacholBut there was something in the air!  Something deep was stirring. I couldn’t put a handle on it – maybe it was the mix of controversial headlines and others’ incisive blogs? However, I tried putting into words a strong sense of history repeating itself. To bring some sort of clarity into this – and I am not one for blowing my own trumpet – it’s necessary to refer to my early email. (Have entered 7th year of writing.)

sine-wave_thumb.jpgThat is, I began taking a different tack which should help you grasp what I was ‘sensing’. Thus, the first of a trilogy referred to a cyclic nature of historical events.

So Wed-Thurs last week I was busy getting this ‘off my chest’ before our usual long-weekend – and a week ago today I got up early to input editorial changes…but…

Little did I suspect this would ignite a series of coincidences on this subject!

Here’s what happened, like pieces of an invisible jigsaw falling ‘out of the blue’:

1. Thursday: on waking I heard, “Jonathan Cahn!”, and knew to refer to him to give  those familiar with his book a hook and time-frame for my posts. [See ‘A’ below]

2. Moved original post’s mention of ‘Bells’ to new post’s opening paragraph; thought it may relate to blog’s long-standing contributor TP [B].

3. After updating draft, checked emails only to find one of TP’s friends had just emailed me direct about “timing…just right” and that “something is changing spiritually”!

4. Completed/published ‘1of 3’, logged out and noticed number of followers is ‘360’ [C].

5. Friday: on waking heard “360 degrees in a circle!” – precisely what I’m blogging about but as cycles! Therefore, writing about these specific cycles is confirmed!

6. Saturday: caught up with a dvd of Cahn’s session ‘The Shemitah Year’ at January’s  Prophecy Summit in Alabama. Fascinating teaching and it refers to 2014-15.

7. Sunday: phoned D&SB in Devon (who’d recommended Cahn’s The Harbinger), only to be told that C&RP of their home group will be leading review of his book this week!!

8. Monday: at church prayer group told host MC about 1 & 7, but we were both amazed  because that morning, without any pre-decision, she’d picked out that teaching to listen to next from her collection of recordings!!!

Teamwork by Franky242

Notes:

A. In the UK it was months before Messianic rabbi Cahn’s book came to my attention. It received poor reviews here as a sensationalist Christian novel. But I now find it was, in fact, published on 3rd January 2012 – when I was drafting a brief overview (as here) of financial analyst Eric Hadik’s work on economic cycles! Very interesting synchronicity, or ‘God-incidence!!

But for our friends’ insistent recommendation I wouldn’t have read The Harbinger. I got around to reading it as a birthday present last September!  Until then I hadn’t known it was based upon the Levitical instruction to let land lie fallow every seventh year, which was practised for centuries in England until modern times.

I’m now sure there’s far more, a great deal more, to Cahn’s thesis than meets the eye!

B. Musing upon what I’d blogged since mid-February got me buzzing. Late afternoon a week ago yesterday, Wednesday 4th March, I split the original post and found myself writing about Middle-East news saying bells had started to ring!  My mind was racing  and I found some moments before bed to work on a hardcopy to reshape it. First thing in the morning ‘the bells’ got moved to the new first part’s opening paragraph.

There was a distinct feeling like when a series of almost two dozen coincidences struck me in 2012 in respect of Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee bells. (The ‘God-incidents’ could be drawn like a series of logic-trees.)  Now, I recalled Tony Puccio, a new reader at that time, had got in touch to refer to a dream about his doorbell being rung – see GET READY… (He’s now re-visited it, as here.)

C. Although TP’s friend decided to follow this blog on Thursday I didn’t know the total number of followers because that data’s not shown in WordPress’ admin screen. I could check on a linked screen but the figure’s based upon fellow WordPress bloggers’ only and excludes email-only readers. Therefore, I don’t note these different totals.

Logging-off for the day, however, I decided for once to check total number of ‘follows’ on the browser screen. There, the pop-up invitation window is easily read and includes all subscribers.

It said, “Join 360 other followers” – I thought no more about it; that is, until waking up the next day!

I can’t escape the conclusion that the Lord is stressing these cycles are important.

The Shemitah and Jubilee

In his book’s chapter 17, ‘The Mystery of the Shemitah’, and before explaining how it’s timing is directly connected to major international financial crashes, Cahn writes:

The Shemitah revolves around the number seven – it’s the seventh year. It begins and ends in the seventh month of the biblical year.

HarbingerIt originates in the opening verses of Leviticus 25, which describes it as a sabbatical rest for not only the land but also for labour and debts and associated matters.  Seven such Sabbath years, that is 49 years, are especially significant and the 50th is a consecrated holy year – a Jubilee. (Visit BibleGateway to read chapter 25 in full and consider this interesting rabbinical post, The Fiftieth Year.)

Rabbi Cahn’s in-depth teaching explores how he found these 7 and 49/50 year periods are demonstrated in dramatic historic events since the founding of the USA, as well as those of modern Israel. His exposition deserves careful attention:

Some take issue with his relating the Lord’s instruction for Jewish observance to any modern gentile nation. For his thesis Jonathan goes back to events at the founding of the United States as a nation specifically based upon Judeo-Christian principles. Some would also comment with good reason about the large freemasonic influence in those days, which leads into speculative conspiracy theories of which I’m well aware.

Let me add my ‘tuppenny worth’ in pointing to grounds for Jonathan’s historical claims:

as-america-has-done-to-israel8Jewish immigrants played an important part in British colonial and independent states of New England, none more so than Haym Salomon from Poland. Fluent in several languages and expert international financier he arrived in 1772, joining the Sons of Liberty in New York City. It was one of the colony’s most radical revolutionary groups.

Five years after rebellion against Britain’s king George the colonials were bankrupt. The American currency collapsed in 1781 with its treasury empty and no means of paying for the war or its debts. Saloman’s skill, knowledge, honesty and generosity kept America solvent during its first economic crisis with his personal credit backing the US finances. He died penniless in 1785 from a sickness contracted whilst imprisoned (twice for spying against the British).

According to John McTernan, he never received recognition during his lifetime but an official commemorative stamp was issued in 1975 in his honour. Its reverse stated:

Financial hero-businessman and broker Haym Salomon was responsible for raising most of the money needed to finance the American revolution and later saved the nation from collapse.

Therefore, had it not been for a self-sacrificing Jewish financier, America wouldn’t exist as we know it today.

For details of John McTernan’s As America Has Done To Israel, click on image.

Conclusion

Scripture suggests the above ‘God-incidental’ events may be explained as follows:

‘The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]’.  Psalm 37:23, Amplified Bible

Therefore, it certainly appears that the Lord is unequivocally telling us to take heed and learn about this Shemitah-Jubilee Year – and why!

May He bless you on your voyage of discovery…

1 of 3: The ‘Endgame’ gets ramped up another level

A fast fortnight ploughed a deep furrow along a cycle of time – ‘a wheel within the greater wheel’ of End-time events…

Bells start ringing that we’ve been here before – and at this time of year too! – like fresh, bright-yellow daffodil bells I see springing up outside!  Let me to add to what others are doing as ‘prep’ for 2015…

Spiral stairway to cloudsTime is non-linear.  Our analytical mindsets think time’s a straight line. Often we see time-lines listing events in history – or use one for our own life.

The passage of time and events is seasonal; ie. cyclical. I regard time like a spiral for, when considered dynamically under the interaction of various influences, it’s just like a corkscrew being turned. Nature provides an excellent example that carries information – the DNA spiral.

Spiral stairs franky242Another example: on a spiral staircase we pass by different walls. If it’s in a castle turret there’d be a doorway on each floor and in the same vertical wall of the well. Regard this wall as a certain kind of event and note how it connects with us, or is relevant to us, at different times and levels.

Hence, various types of event can crop up in a cyclical pattern of repetitions at different levels and show some development has taken place. So it is in history and with God’s plans too, could we but be aware, or receive revelation.

Before I heard about Jonathan Cahn’s US best-seller The Harbinger, I’d outlined the Biblical analysis of historical and financial cycles in one of my first months’ blogs,  Points to Ponder 2011-2012. (For more see below.)

Quick recap

Last week I promised to reveal how a possible option between either one of two weeks for surgery affected, or even enabled(!), further insights into something we’d recently mulled over on this blog – Satan’s strategy to avoid the Lake of Fire.

Please accept my apologies for not having done so in ‘the next post’. So much was still surfacing – from both the past and the present – that I had to take stock.  To my great surprise a cycle of events was laid bare.

Blog JigsawOnce again, more of the ‘Invisible Jigsaw’ is appearing, as blogged extensively in 2014  (click image to read about its themes).

So, I’ll explain this year’s view of ‘the grand design’ for you to follow my logic. Let’s look at the jigsaw pieces we’ve placed down thus far.

I mused upon how Satan could have adopted tactics to avoid his destined demise in the Lake of Fire and a progression of ‘pieces’ was revealed as follows:

  1. Paws 4 thought: devilish plot to avoid the Lake of Fire – the removal of conditions necessary for Jesus’ prophesied return: no Jews alive in Jerusalem and Mid-East and disunity among Christians, plus not living in Holy Spirit’s power and a deep   rejection of Jews and Israel on supposedly ‘scriptural’ grounds!
  2. An insight into global Satanic strategy: Part 1 – misinformation from many political leaders. ‘Coincidently’, Archbishop Welby denounced anti-Semitism and had its most vociferous vicar silenced.
  3. An insight into global Satanic strategy: Part 2 – history of Islam from start up to the Crusades and exposure of the myth they taught Muslims to hate and attack Christians. It originated in Western intellectuals, whose fallacies within academia continue unabated!
  4. Anti-terrorism summit confirms this week’s insight – Within a day of blogging as above, international news on security confirmed my conclusions. But technical hitches hindered my publishing this, which revealed I faced ungodly opposition!

History cycles around

On top of those concepts, accelerating developments in the Middle-East only add to the mix. Therefore, an appreciation of my background in this will be of some help.

Pertinent to today’s issues is a personal event that hooked me into Eschatology, as well as subsequent developments, viz:

Mid-1980s

Invisible HandAs stated in this blog’s Welcome, the Iran-Iraq war opened my eyes as an unbeliever because I’d been given an unusual ‘secular’ book on OT prophecies of modern events. Whilst watching a TV documentary about that war I flicked through the brand-new book and noted references to the significance of Jerusalem.  THEN I heard the TV narrator speak about, and showed, elite units from both sides rehearsing together an attack upon Jerusalem! – despite being at war with one another!! So I’ve since kept an eye on international affairs.

Once again, conflict in Iraq involving Iran is in the news because of ISIS’ invasion of Iraq in 2014.

2009

Six years ago last weekend, on 28th February 2009, I started what would become a series of private emails to Christian friends and church leaders drawing attention to the plain fact that events are fitting more clearly into Biblical prophecy.

We’d already debated the Lakeland, Florida, outpouring as I’d known of Todd Bentley before-hand. However, the new direction had become abundantly obvious and so I emailed them, The ‘Endgame’ is now in play.

It was only much later, in Autumn 2011, that the Lord prodded me into going public with this blog. (If you’re interested in numbers; the 700th post is one the above ‘insights’.)

As said, significant End-time events began to escalate. To appreciate how they’ve again become ‘hot potatoes’ you may like to dip into later emails of May and July 2009 noting especially as below:

  • Today’s Importance In History – reference to Obama’s ‘back channels’ (secret diplomacy) contact with and appeasement of Iran, and consequential dismay in Egypt and Saudi Arabia – and their cooperation with Israel.
  • Middle-East Update July 2009 – Obama’s making Netanyahu the bogeyman in preventing nuclear-arms discussions with Iran. Obama’s character.

2010

An entirely forgotten idea privately posited with those friends popped up again unbidden in the last fortnight. Part 2 will show how the shuffled surgical schedule reported in The Shepherd, the Shadow and the ‘Spread’ fits into our ‘jigsaw’.

I hope you’ll have time to dip into those archived papers whenever possible.
