Solar eclipse across America signals onset of repentance

RJ Dawson continues his provocatively instructive series on economic crises and divine judgement by considering the timing of today’s solar eclipse.

   Today’s rare celestial event is strangely coinciding with emerging economic and social turbulence that will likely grow worse in the coming weeks.

         On August 7, I wrote and finished editing Part 1 of this series.

      On August 8, the Dow Jones reached its highest peak in history after climbing all year.

        On August 9, before dawn, I posted Part 1, Economic Crash and Burn. On that very day the market immediately began dropping, losing 335 points over the next two days.

        On August 11, before dawn, I posted Part 2, The Third Sign: It’s Déjà Vu All Over Again.

          On August 12, Charlottesville happened.

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!!

Mark Davidson’s best guess End-Time timeline

Many thanks for this very useful summary and how well timed in view of one of my readers’ comments on vision of heavenly council meeting on UK. For a summary of Mark’s theories read Four Signposts of the Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

Many have asked for a chart to put together the main events of the end times from the Signpost perspective. Timelines can be dangerous because they can be followed too closely and relied upon too much.

But I also realize the utility of timelines and how with one picture they can relate events to one another. I also started to notice some real dates as I dug in a little deeper which were very close to the opening and closing dates of the Jewish seven-year cycles. Also, it looks like big events usually don’t happen on the cycle start/finish, but a cycle can have a theme. Like for the First Signpost, the five cycles thus far are: conquest, conquest, WMD/bow, making the lion stand, continuing to watch the lion.

Each of the remaining Signposts being assigned to their own cycle was just a guess; however, the Bible itself gives us…

11 numbers linking Israel and Donald Trump in 2017

We heard Revd John Kilpatrick quoting from this fascinating data collected by Michael Snyder and published by CharismaNews. I’m most grateful to publisher and author. Note Michael’s reference to number 50 for I’d noticed Dr Sharon Stone’s prophecy on 3rd Nov 2012 on national identity was echoed 50 months later by Donald Trump during interview, as blogged in Fulfilled Prophecies #15.:

Is 2017 going to be the most important year we have seen in a very, very long time?

Because of the work I do, I am constantly immersed in research, and lately I keep coming across very strange “coincidences” regarding the year 2017. The numbers I am about to share with you certainly appear to be quite remarkable, but there will be many out there who will question their significance.

To the naysayers, I would suggest that from the very beginning, God has always put a lot of emphasis on numbers. For example, He created the world in precisely seven days, and on the seventh day He rested. Throughout Scripture, we see certain numbers showing up over and over again, and God has a purpose in that. So please keep this in mind as you consider the following 11 numbers that connect the year 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

1. On Nov. 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that called for the creation of a Jewish state as part of an overall partition plan for the Middle Eastern territory that was occupied by Great Britain at that time. 2017 will mark the 70th anniversary of that agreement, and many believe that this will turn out to be quite significant. If you are not familiar with this U.N. resolution, here is some info on it from Wikipedia:

The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was a proposal by the United Nations, which recommended a partition of mandatory Palestine at the end of the British Mandate. On 29 November 1947, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the plan as Resolution 181(II).[2]

The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and a special international regime for the city of Jerusalem. The Partition Plan, a four-part document attached to the resolution, provided for the termination of the Mandate, the progressive withdrawal of British armed forces and the delineation of boundaries between the two states and Jerusalem. Part I of the plan stipulated that the Mandate would be terminated as soon as possible and the United Kingdom would withdraw no later than Aug. 1, 1948. The new states would come into existence two months after the withdrawal, but no later than Oct. 1, 1948. The plan sought to address the conflicting objectives and claims of two competing movements, Palestinian nationalism and Jewish nationalism, or Zionism.[3][4] The plan also called for economic union between the proposed states and for the protection of religious and minority rights.

So why would 70 years be important?

Well, the Babylonian captivity lasted for a period of 70 years, and as the Daily Crow explains, the number 70 just keeps popping up throughout the Bible.

Moses appointed 70 elders, and the gospels record 70 parables by Jesus. A total of 70 Israelites began their nation in Egypt before it would grow to over 2 million by the time of the Exodus. 70 elders made up Israel’s Great Tribunal which would later become the Sanhedrin. 70 disciples were sent out by Christ to preach the gospel in Luke 10. Therefore 70 means complete and perfect judgment or perfection made complete through judgment.

2. The number 50 is also a very important biblical number. And even though 2017 will not be a Jubilee year, it is fascinating to note that 2017 will be exactly 50 years from the reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967.

3. If we go back another 50 years from 1967, that brings us to the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which was also a very significant landmark in the history of the Jewish people.

4. It turns out that there was also exactly 50 years from the Zionist Congress of 1897 to the U.N. resolution in 1947 that called for the creation of a Jewish state.

5. As I stated in a previous article, Donald Trump was born precisely 700 days before Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948.

6. The nation of Israel was 77 days old precisely 777 days after the birth of Donald Trump.

7. Israel’s 70th birthday will come precisely 700 days after Donald Trump’s 70th birthday.

8. Donald Trump’s shocking election victory just happened to fall on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s seventh year, seventh month and seventh day in office.

9. Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day in the White House.

10. Donald Trump’s first full day in the White House will also come during year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.

11. Many are pointing to a very unusual celestial arrangement that will take place on Sept. 23, 2017. It is being called “the Revelation 12 sign,” and some claim this is the first time in 7000 years that we will see the scene described in Revelation chapter 12 actually being depicted in the heavens. The following is what Revelation 12:1-2 says:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child and cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

You can learn more about this very unusual event right here on YouTube. And of course, just because the stars are lining up a certain way does not mean something specific will happen on that day. Some have suggested that it could be the birth of something, and others have suggested that it could be the beginning or the end of a countdown. The truth is that I don’t know if anyone knows what it might mean at this point, but Jesus did tell us to watch for signs in the sun, moon and stars in the last days, so we should be alert.

Throughout history, God has always liked to use numbers to get our attention. And as you just saw, there are lots of unusual numbers that seem to connect 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

And even without any of those numbers, many have long had a feeling that 2017 is going to be an extremely significant year, and so we all need to be ready for whatever God has in store for us.

On the nature of Time

Re-published from Cycles and Time hub as first background item for upcoming posts on the convergence of scripture and science:

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

“Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.  I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. ”  (Revelation 1:8 and 17-18, NKJV)

Thank you Lord that you exist outside and inside Time – you are Always and Now!  [Read prophetical word from Jesus, “I Am The Lord of Time”.]

In my humble opinion, time is non-linear.

y=xOur analytical mind-sets think time is a straight line and this is endorsed by the standard use in mathematical graphs of time as the ‘x’ or horizontal axis, as in this GCSE maths graph. Like an ‘x’ axis, time-lines list events in history – and we can use one for our own lives. After all, we live our lives in a sequence of events – one thing after another.

When observed in nature’s season and oceans, however, the passage of time-related activity is continuously periodic, that is, cyclical. So I regard time like a spiral because, when considered dynamically under the interaction of various influences, it’s just like a corkscrew being turned.

TIME SWINGS
Sine wave (credit Wikipedia)

Sine wave (credit Wikipedia)

Consider drawing a circle and the position of pencil, or finger, as you time the motion. Done this way it can be plotted on an ‘x-y’ graph.  With ‘x’ as time and ‘y’ as position on paper, it produces a curve looking like a wave of water – known as a sine wave- as in this diagram.

I was fascinated to learn in school physics that the tides and pendulum swings of a clock are ‘simple harmonic motion’ (SHM), which can be expressed as a trigonometric function of an angle. The ‘sine’ function is used to model periodic phenomena such as oscillations eg. sound and light waves, the position and velocity of oscillators, sunlight intensity and day length, and average temperature variations throughout the year (Wikipedia ‘Sine’)

Have you stood on a beach at high or low tide and noticed how long the water sits there? Its level slowly starts changing but at mid-tide the water rushes to the other extreme. It floods in full flow only to stall and stop, and then return to repeat its action – and again.

sine-wave.jpgSHM and its geometrical depiction explains why the difference in tidal speeds. Watch the brief video under ‘Occurrences’ in Wikipedia’s Sine Wave. It shows a wave as a curve of dashes being produced as a point on the circle’s circumference plots the wave form – but its own motion is screw-like, is it not?

TIME SPIRALS

Spiral stairway to cloudsTherefore, we can regard time like a spiral turning like a corkscrew. Also, nature provides another excellent example – and it’s one that carries information – the DNA spiral, of which there are two in each molecule.

Let me explain some more with a simple analogy: 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.

Spiral stairs franky242Hence, 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 divine revelation.

CONFIRMATION

I’m amazed to learn that financial analyst and expert in the cyclical nature of markets, Eric Hadik, also describes time as a spiral. I’ve known about him since 2010 but, in collecting my previous material and updating to include the above maths, I once again visited his website and found this newer one, 40 Year Cycle. In its introduction to cycles Eric states,

…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 latest post on this topic can be read at the head of the Time category.

Next, we’ll consider this periodic function of time and the biblical nature of cycles.

2017, the significance of 70 years and Smith-Wigglesworth’s vision

Upon reading the full transcript of Malcolm Duncan’s message it resonated deeply within my spirit – as well as directly relating to personal experiences. Please bear with me as some of it necessitates reiteration.

Revd Malcolm DuncanWe should note Malcolm’s reservations mirror those of Wigglesworth’s contemporaries over his unorthodox, questionable ministry methods – but whatever the Lord wanted to heal or expel got accomplished. (Bobby Conner recounts his astonishment at seeing a dubious church leader in Jesus’ presence but being rebuked because he’s the Lord’s servant!)  Malcolm’s remarks upon weighing what the Lord may be saying is an object lesson in the prophetic. NB:

“…Denis shouted “And brother I came into the kingdom in 1947” and the minute he said it I thought, “I think God is saying something to me”.
“I think Denis…he used you as a prophetic voice…So what came into my head was “the Smith Wigglesworth prophecy of 1947”.
“I turned to Pauline and said, “Did Smith Wigglesworth prophesy his prophecy in 1947?”, and she said, “I don’t know but I was born in 1947”.
“But as soon as I heard Denis I thought of the Smith Wigglesworth prophecy, which was very unusual for me and made me think, “What are you saying Lord?” I went back and I read it again and thought – “There is something stirring in my spirit here.” (Emphasis added)

Pauline’s reaction is mine too for I always recall that vision’s year is my birth year. Also, the timing of 50 years until my witnessing his prayer partner’s ecstatic joy at also seeing what will be happening across the British Isles is etched in my memory, as told in the previous post.

Yet there’s another reason – and it connects into Malcolm’s thoughts on 70 years as being significant. AND I can offer what he doesn’t – a confirmatory explanation! He said,

“2017 is 70 years after the prophecy was given. 2017 is also 50 years after Jean Darnall’s prophecy, which was given in 1967, when she saw little fires across the UK ablaze and then a river flowing through the UK and into Europe…

“Is God saying something with these two things? The 50th year after Jean Darnall’s prophecy, a year of jubilee. The 70th year after Smith Wigglesworth prophecy, just like there were 70 years of captivity for Israel…I feel like Daniel must have felt like when he found Jeremiah’s promise after 70 years and said, after 70 years I am going to do something.

NOW, this leads into something I’d intended to finish relating to revelations upon timings received last April.  I will be more concise than when I was trying to formulate and clarify what I was learning.:

Charlie ShampOn Good Friday 2015 Charles Shamp taught on the coming September’s fourth blood-moon as marking the beginning of the time of the Army of God. He believes it starts a two-year period that’s open for all believers, but especially for a glorious company praying things from the Age to Come. Thus, the two years until September 2017 will be an extra-special period, not judgmental and destructive.

The details are recounted in A Scriptural context of…the Blood-Moon Tetrad; and under ‘2015 Feast of Tabernacles Blood-Moon’ header in its follow-up post I reported Charlie’s reasons. Those posts were written last September, but the first ones on that Passover-Easter conference appeared a year ago this month. Furthermore, I blogged about the personal significance of 40 and 55 year periods in ‘God-incidents’ Validate Cycles and Point to Near-Future.

70-Years Period

I didn’t, however, explain the personal relevance of 70 years to 23rd September 2017.

As in those posts, Charlie relates that date to the prophet Daniel’s forecast and bequest to the Magi of his revelation on ‘The Star of Bethlehem’; a reappearance of which is expected in astronomical stellar and planetary alignments of 23.9.2017 (note: not astrology!). More specifically, this future event relates to Revelation 12:1 – John’s vision of the woman clothed with the sun. (For more read Nelson Walters Who Is the Woman of Rev.12?)

My reaction was – “My 70th birthday’s the day before!”.  So the 23rd September 2017 will start a new 70-year period for me.

70 is a biblically sacred number the two factors of which are perfect numbers, 7 and 10 representing perfection and completeness respectively. As such, it symbolizes perfect spiritual order carried out with all power, and can also represent a period of judgment (courtesy BibleStudy.org, which gives other examples to those Malcolm cites). Also, Jewish scholars teach that ‘The Torah has 70 Faces’, or levels of interpretation!

Last year saw 70th anniversary celebrations over the end of World War II, and other occasions. 2017 will be the 70th anniversary of crucial events in the birth of the state of Israel. In A Few Thoughts To Mark the Occasion of the 67th birthday of that state, Joel Rosenberg writes about a critical occasion in 1947 on the UN Partition Plan for Palestine upon the British withdrawal from that Mandated Territory, as follows:

‘To succeed, the Partition Plan needed a two-thirds majority vote of the U.N. General Assembly. With just days to go before that historic vote on November 29, 1947, however, supporters of the plan were still three votes short. Some have suggested that President Truman personally called leaders of other nations to encourage them to support the American position. Others say he didn’t but that staff in his administration did; the record is not clear. Either way, most historians—including David McCullough, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his extraordinary biography Truman—acknowledge that Truman wanted the plan to pass and played a role behind the scenes. In the end, Truman got his way. The Partition Plan dramatically passed at the last moment, thirty-three to thirteen, with ten abstentions’.

2017 – Unity

Malcolm Duncan gives his reasons for 2017 being a significant year and seeing a move of God in the UK, for which he believes God is asking us to get ready in many ways. I will cover this essential aspect in another post…

By the way, Erik Hadik, the financial analyst I occasionally blog about, gave this forecast last June on 2017:

‘The culmination of so many diverse cycle in 2017 keeps receiving powerful validation. For instance, the convergence of 8-year, 17-year and 40-year cycles – all related to China – have been forecast to accelerate into 2017.’

We shall see what we shall see…

2016 prophetic word and 11-year cycles

Doug_Addison credit Elijah ListOn 12th January Doug Addison published 2016: Get Ready for Realignments and New Assignments, which refers to a cyclical activity of the Lord throughout the 20th Century. It just so happens that early posts on this blog may confirm his thesis.

To read the full word Doug brings, click its above title. After mentioning major adjustments for many folk in how we regard and operate in church, this word covers a number of matters at length. He refers to an encounter on Christmas Day which gave him an insight into Bob Jones’ ‘Lumber-yard Experience’. Also, leading up to that Doug sensed a “distant rumble in the spirit” of the Lord coming and that His “glory is returning like never before”(!), adding this noteworthy caveat: “It is not coming in the current Church structure, though churches are invited“.  Another of the several details of this word is that keys of authority have been reassigned….“God is lining things up for a breakthrough in March!”

Now here’s what’s of special relevance. Doug explains,

Why 2016 Could Be The Start Of Something New

“The last global movement of God’s power started 22 years ago this month in January 1994 with the Toronto Blessing. It was very powerful and lasted a few years [over 10! RB] but was eventually spoken against and some major leaders disassociated themselves with it. This caused division and even brought judgment on the ministries and churches of those who spoke against what God was doing. This amazing move of God got bound by people with keys and authority and the result is that we have not seen a sustained global movement of God for 22 years. This is related to the keys that I saw being redistributed.

“There has been a move of God every 11 years dating back to the Azusa Street Revival in 1906. The 11-year intervals fall on the 1950 Healing Movement, the 1961 Charismatic Renewal, the 1972 Jesus People Movement and in 1983, the Third Wave Charismatic Movement. 1994 had the Toronto Blessing and 11 years later there would have been a movement that actually did start around 2005. But this amazing movement from God never got off the ground because of judgments. It was cut short, judged and bound by those with the keys of authority. The 2005 move started with unusual signs of God’s glory such as gold fillings appearing in people’s mouths, gold dust and gemstones appearing supernaturally in meetings. But the move never went global as God intended and was very limited. It is now 11 years after 2005, which is 2016 and there is a move of God coming this year. It will be with fire and oil from Heaven that cannot be touched by those who have not been prepared. This is what I saw in my Christmas morning encounter—an angel measuring for it and worker angels being assigned to bring it about.”

Being my birthday’s date, the opening reference to ’22’ naturally caught my attention right away (as well as being the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet). Next, Doug’s count of 11 years reminded me I’d written about the same periodicity soon after starting this blog. (Anyone who took up my 7th Anniversary hint to check the outlines in Cycles & Time will be ready for what’s below.)

[Also, Paul Keith Davis has said 11 years after the birth of modern Pentecostalism in 1885 at Bethshan Conference on Holiness and Healing in London, saw the publication in 1896 of Theodore Herzl’s famous call, The Jewish State. That year also saw Alexander Dowie commission his apostolic church calling for a return to an apostolic period”; see ‘Days of Wonder’, August 2014.]

Other 11-year Cycles

BillKoenig_hdrOn 5th January 2012 in Points to ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical historical/financial cycles I introduced my first readers to The White House accredited Christian correspondent William Koenig (Bio here) and his deep investigation of the work of Erik Hadik. Briefly outlining the nature of cycles I referred to their effects not only upon the environment but also upon our political and economical activity. For example, the cycle of conflict in the Middle-East corresponds closely with the 11-year sunspot cycle.

For almost  20 years this publisher of Koenig World Watch Daily and weekly Koenig’s Eye View from the White House has monitored important matters relating to Israel and likely connections with Biblical teaching and prophecy. That is, the simultaneous, or following closely, linkage between the way Israel is treated and various upheavals elsewhere has been found to be highly probable.

Moreover, a database of empirical evidence amassed from business affairs and observing international events gives a firm foundation for theories of cyclical influences.

Later that year, in concluding Paws 4 thought: weather quakes and cycles I referred again to Erik’s findings and quoted specifics on that 11-year period, as cited by Bill:

  • end of WWII – 1945, adding 11 years:
  • Suez War – 1956, another 11 years:
  • Six Days War – 1967, plus 11 years:
  • Camp David Accords – 1978-1979 (also Iran’s Islamic Revolution):
  • Persian Gulf War / Desert Storm (Part I) – 1990-91, another 11 years:
  • Sept 11th 2001 terror events and subsequent Afghan and Iraq wars (Part II).
  • 2012 – may introduce Persian Gulf Wars Part III? – Sunni/Shiite conflict?

Hadik claims the above dates are, in fact, preceded by those for the Palestine mandate (1922) and Hitler’s ascension (1933).  Furthermore, there is a 50/100 year cycle of major wars. He cites the Napoleonic war of 1812, US Civil War (1861-65), the Balkan Wars of 1912 as the real start of WWI,  1961-2 Cuban missile crisis and SE Asian wars.  2012 next!  (Source: page 5 of Hadik’s Earth in Transition 3+3 II.)

An Accurate 11-year Forecast

On 5th September 2012 Bill hit the nail of the head! I blogged about receiving his News Alert forecasting another ‘historical day’ in connection with Israel, militant Islam and the USA. It was headed:

  • A New World Order Speech – Major Terror Attacks – Is Something Coming?
  • 9-11-1990 plus 11 years = 9-11-2001 plus 11 years = 9-11-2012

On 11th September 2012, the American embassy in Egypt and consulate in Libya were besieged by Islamist mobs. This led to the cold-blooded murder of Ambassador Stevens and three consular staff in Benghazi. Hence, the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attack in New York became another date in infamy for the Middle-East.

Conclusion

So, in view of a demonstrable historical record for the 11-year cycle we can validate and give credence to Doug Addison’s claim about the importance of 2016 as another ‘peak’ in activity of a spiritual 11-year cycle. It is one to rejoice over rather than despair over…

Thank and praise you Lord for your mercy and grace and what You’re doing in the earth.

7th Anniversary of Watching

Courtsey StoonnDedicated to personal and cyber friends and readers who’ve followed my musings over the years – kindly bear with any repetition below.

On the last day of February seven years ago I emailed some friends in various churches about how I’d been stunned upon opening my Bible. Having been in touch about the previous year’s events in Lakeland, Florida, we continued chatting occasionally. However, my attention was suddenly directed to look at Biblical prophecies in much more depth.

We will see how this may be relevant to the previous post but first, in celebrating that date, let me repeat the opening of that two-part email (click title to read in full – and I hope the many links below don’t cause readers any scrolling problems):

The Endgame Is Now In Play

‘Dear Friends – further to Rev’d Bill’s [author William Smith] recent request re Christian Freedom, may I offer some observations upon our times and, in another message, suggest a way forward?

‘Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt 13:36-43). So I went to check scripture but upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW!!

‘Hence, my previous remarks about a sifting of the Church – in preparation for a rapid ‘sHifting’? Jesus urged His disciples to look out for and observe signs of the times. Regarding their questions about His return at the end of this Age, the earliest Gospel account has Jesus stressing 7 times, Watch…be alert…on your guard (Mark 13). Matthew 24 reports Jesus saying 4 times, Watch…and when you see…” followed by the parables of the burglar and of the virgins:> “Don’t be caught napping!” [Is the Church still asleep?] Luke’s account has, “Be always on the watch…” (at 21:36) and chapter 12 has sections on watchfulness and interpreting the times. In each Gospel Jesus commands, Learn the lesson of the fig tree…”. Also, the Apostles went on to give more indicators (Acts 3:20-1, Hebrews 12:26-7, 2 Peter 3, 2 Timothy 3 and the first and second letters to the Thessalonians).

So, let’s watch closely what’s happening here and globally….’

wheat-and-tares[Last Thursday I referred to that parable when I commented upon a contribution at the close of  What is the Gospel of the Kingdom?.  Author Nelson Walters replied that he intends blogging on it soon!  Upon re-reading the above ‘7 times’ repetition of Jesus it’s fascinating that Matthew 13 pops up 7 years later! Now, is it coincidence or ‘God-incidence’? You tell me.]

That email went on to remind readers of the increasing difficulties fellow believers were facing in their workplaces because of political intolerance and surveillance. [This still pertains, eg. the Court appeal of senior NHS therapist Victoria Wasteney outrageously disciplined for giving a Muslim colleague a book!! – but better news on Christian political campaigner Alan Craig being reinstated and all charges dropped against pensioner/street preacher Michael Jones who was imprisoned for exposing ISIS!! – many more cases here. Breaking News – secret policing of Christian student leads to expulsion!]

In the follow-up email I shared an open vision of the rotten state of our society and that Christians need to take a stand upon the Rock that is Christ. I quoted Bible teacher David Pawson’s idea that such ‘persecution’ will strengthen and encourage Christians, and that Muslims are shaming us with our lack of zeal.

Prophet Daniel: Europe’s 666, Obama in Cairo etc 

Occasional emails were to follow focusing upon current events in the Middle East not only from a scriptural perspective, of which my friends were acquainted, but also from little-known facts as well as omissions by mainstream media.

Thus to President Obama’s landmark Cairo Speech to the Muslim world and I torpedoed his claims of being a historian and Christian. Observers will be familiar with those matters and Potus’ great antipathy towards Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu, and hence the consequential collapse of America’s influence in that sphere. (See that link for updates)

However, on two consecutive days 13 months later (12 & 13 May 2010) there came an interesting combination of events: Netanyahu quoted the New Testament against PA chief negotiator’s insults over the Jewish nature of Jerusalem – Obama turned a new leaf on Israel! (Details here.) Interesting that only last week Bibi had occasion to correct David Cameron over Jerusalem, as noted in previous post.

Acceleration and Blogging

From the early days of reporting, my private emails were mainly based upon monitoring developments in what I termed the ‘Ezekiel 38 Alliance’, otherwise known as Gog-Magog, as well as Zecharia 12 re Jerusalem (see Today’s Importance in History‘).

https://richards-watch.org/2011/11/24/key-to-foretelling-the-future/But Biblically-related and prophesied events were unfolding rapidly and the Lord prompted me to start blogging to a wider readership, which was launched in November 2011. The first blogs’ background and testimony of a near death-revelation of hell served to introduce me. Also, I told Why I’m on the Lookout (including use of a ‘time machine’ operated by literary licence, and our Time Lord’s Key to Foretelling the Future), notified my earliest readers about non-mainstream media sources used (Not the 10 o’clock News) and introduced the theory of cycles of time in 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles.  September 2011’s dream of The Kingdom being set up in the UK was also recounted.

It’s again noteworthy that 50 months ago posts on PM Netanyahu setting up Bible study at Home and on PM Cameron ‘Doing God’ featured in the first month of blogging!!

Contemporary Prophecy and Healings

Within months I began blogging about healing in view of a furore over prayers for healing being performed on the streets and covered issues on that as well as The Bay of The Holy Spirit healing revival. So a main menu hub with many sub-pages was established on Jesus & Miracles, which also asks ‘Do You Know Jesus?’ for any visitors to whom He may be unfamiliar.

In view of the blog’s main focus it was essential to set up an instructional hub Prophecies & Visions, which includes a Library of contemporary words of prophecy and prophetical visions

‘Invisible Jigsaw’

Puzzle Globe and Book by ThanunkornThat was the title I first wanted to use for this blog but at that time I wasn’t able to find or to create a suitable graphic. An increasing range of material encouraged me to diversify my blogging and in a way opened me more to what the Lord was doing and communicating. It was rather like His displaying pieces of an invisible jigsaw.

On several occasions other folk would contribute various prophetic words and their timing was more than coincidental. In particular, a lengthy string of personal events cropped up in connection with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Bells and I had to start taking these kind of insights seriously. These and many ‘God-incidents’ were like jigsaw pieces.

These events got so frequent that rather than having to repeat myself for the benefit of new readers it was more helpful to write brief introductions to this material. As the blog’s format may differ on tablets and smartphones to that for desktop screens, maybe some readers are unaware of these outlines buried within the blog’s main menu.

For ease of reference, those outlines are: Cycles & Time > 1 Eternity and Prophecy – 2 The Nature of Time – 3 Cycles and the Bible – 4 The Natural Year – 5 Historic Aprils for USA & Israel : God-incidents & Jigsaws >  6 God-incidents – 7 Invisible Jigsaw.

Therefore, I took particular notice of ‘spooky’ events on two anniversaries of this blog. As told here, Iran ‘coincidentally’ repeated what I’d seen in mid-1980’s – rehearsal of an attack upon Jerusalem. That was my introduction as a non-Christian to Bible prophecy!

Time Comes Around – again

Therefore, I was most amused upon the teaching On Engaging Time turning up recently! Also, 7 represents a cycle of completion and closure for another to begin. So I’ve been mulling over what the Lord may have in store for me next and where my focus should be.

Double-confirmation of what I was sensing came from my trusty friends in Glasgow: time to go ‘deeper and higher’!  Hoping and praying that’s for you too…

Be mightily blessed by and in The Name Above ALL Names…

Thank you so much Lord. Thine be the glory and praise alone!

PS. Never would it have crossed my mind when examining opposing opinion on the wheat and tares that 7 years later I’d have scribbled 1020 emails, pages and posts, gained a few hundred regular readers and nearly quarter of a million hits. All-time most popular posts are Dr Sharon Stone’s Prophetic words for 2014-16 for UK & Ireland, the word on a New Move of God for the UK brought by Heidi Baker and then Dr Sharon’s word for 2013, with the Library collection following closely.

Sept 2015, Rosh Hashanah 5776: a word on the Bride and the Lion of Judah

Continuing from the previous post and for what they may be worth, here’s my personal comments upon the extensive prophetic word brought by Johnny Enlow. Read it in full with graphics by clicking the following title’s link to The Elijah List – or, if continuous text is easier, read it here on Facebook.

You may think this post’s title isn’t directly relevant to the material, but it came to mind as I split what was originally one long piece into two posts because this ‘most potent’ word warrants more prominence. Only after its publication did I reflect upon and query the title, but then realised the prophetic promises and Johnny’s thoughts are all part of the Bride’s preparatory training to become like our Lord and Bridegroom. Later, one of the most powerful dreams I’ve ever had brought a personal validation of these words.:

ROSH HASHANAH 5776: THE YEAR YOU WILL ROAR

Discerning the times full image

“This September 14, 2015 begins a most remarkable year on the Hebraic Calendar that will exceed the expectations of even the most optimistic kingdom observer. Having finished three 7-year cycles (1994-2001, 2001-2008, 2008-2015 – see Rosh Hashanah 2014 word) we now enter into the fourth and defining 7 year period, that has birthed the age of the restoration of all things (Acts 3:21), and that has released a majestic Era of Renaissance (see my brand-new book: ‘7 Mountain Renaissance: Vision and Strategy Through 2050’).

“A pertinent scripture for this year and for the subsequent era is Daniel 12:3.

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.

Those who are wise enough to understand the brilliance of Papa’s narrative for this day will position themselves to be able to shine as bright as the sky.”

Johnny continues by contrasting the perceptive perspectives of Caleb & Joshua and the 10 others sent to spy out the Promised Land. What he states about Caleb and his better ‘vision’ speaks straight into the personal word I was given last Autumn by Dale Mast, as recounted here.

It is essential for us to grasp, note and apply Johnny’s explanation of this, viz:

“The 10 spies saw through trouble-shooting lenses, Caleb saw through treasure-hunting lenses. We are in a ten-year window where it is imperative we gain Caleb vision. Caleb vision is against our nature. It is counterintuitive. It is even Pollyannish (sic). It is what is required for reformers of society who truly want to enter into their own prophetic promises. You are going to learn to trust your spirit eyes above your natural eyes and to almost automatically doubt your natural eyes. Media reports and projections will often give you clues as to the OPPOSITE of what God is really doing and as to what kingdom is actually ferociously advancing.”

He then provides examples of God’s reality behind perceived threats of radical Islam:

“These are just two examples of where the mainline Media can lead you to believe the opposite of what is actually taking place. We have needed corrective lenses as to true reality and some are ahead in the process and some are behind. We must learn to go on His reports or we will remain confused, anxious and disoriented.”

Next, he reminds readers of having shared for several years a prophetic time sequence of three definitive progressions: 1) Awakening. 2) Arising. 3) Shining.  After reviewing the first two he writes:

“The third season is Shining and it begins this Rosh Hashanah.  Now begins the extended season of “Shining as Bright as the Sky” and it is now where we begin to contend in earnest for the nations as our inheritance.”

Sunburst ID-100214128

Towards the close of this extensive prognostication, Johnny makes an interesting claim that may apply to our poor weather of late – and we should note September’s extreme, unusual weather in Israel, especially over Rosh Hashana! (Breaking Israel News, “It felt like the Apocalypse”). The intense desert storms there and across Saudi Arabia, both centres of their respective faiths, could indicate the Holy Spirit is about to blow strongly throughout the Jewish and Muslim world. This is what Johnny Enlow writes:

“I believe that where the unusual rains come this next year will be a sign where God is at work in an unusual way. Global centers of reformation will arise from places that get inundated by El Nino (The Child in Spanish, named after Jesus, as the phenomenon was first noted by fishermen off the coast of Peru around Christmas time) and so where the natural showcases excess rain there we will also see abundant spiritual rains about to develop….”

There’s such a lot in this forecast, especially on how he believes the economy will move and I particularly note his sound emphasis on October as being the month of surprises,  which fits my understanding of economic cycles outlined in Cycles & The Bible. This will be covered in my proposed review of forecasts for September.  I note Johnny’s remark on the power of making negative decrees.

My quoting extracts simply cannot do justice to such an extensive, profound forecast. Do read the full account, as linked above, asking the Lord to help you weigh with  discernment.

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] accredited Christian journalist at the White House and editor of World Watch Daily and to Revd John Kilpatrick [JK] senior pastor 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 and a couple of updates cover Judaism and Islam.

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?

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.
