Dr Jane Hamon: puzzle pieces & prophetic words

Puzzle Globe and Book by ThanunkornDr Jane Hamon introduces a prophetic word and teaching on “A Year Heaven Partners with Earth in a New Way”,

“This word is a bit lengthy, however, it has been interesting how God has shown me several different things like puzzle pieces and fit them together for the fullness of what He is saying for this exciting and challenging season”,

Fascinating to read this sister in the Lord recognises the revelatory mode that I often blog about: ‘Invisible Jigsaw’.

The detailed words Jane brings refer to the Lord as saying,

“If you show up, I will show up – if I did it then (as in the Bible), I will do it again!.”

Jane_Tom_Hamon_2016_500pxJane also refers to the Lord bringing us into a time of spiritual climate change because we’re in ‘A Jubilee Year of Release’, as well as a ‘Year of Divine Reversals’.  Carefully read and weigh for yourself after Steve Shultz introduces Jane to his Elijah List readers here.

Why this September is special – 2: Pope, POTUS & Messiah

Part 1 covered the first of at least three reasons why this month is highly significant:

  1. international events of eschatological relevance. (Brief intro here about this.)
  2. the current Shemitah Year 5775 closes on Elul 29, Sunday 13th September.
  3. last of the current Blood Moon Tetrad occurs on Monday 28th September or Tishri 15, first day of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles.

Please note I’m not a ‘doom and gloom’ merchant and not being alarmist in presenting  the first item’s ‘September Schedule’.  A couple of those events need a closer look to enable us to better understand what’s going on.

Neville_Johnson-311x350We’re living in exceptionally exciting times as Biblical prophecies move towards fulfilment. In August, Neville Johnson followed-up last year’s ‘Urgent words about a ‘cut-off time’ in God’s timeline’, . In his later session he taught in-depth upon the necessity of our being heavenly minded. Thus, we’d see ‘The BIGGER Picture’ God has for His children and for the new earth, now and in the near future – the Age to Come!

POPE and P.O.T.U.S.

In Part 1, the 23rd Sept entry quoted John Kilpatrick’s observation on Pope Francis’ official meeting with President Of The United States, Barack Obama: “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!”

In this connection, at the recent Lancaster Prophetic Conference’s first session, Neville taught about the false prophet and the false church (Revelation 13). He spoke about a very powerful encounter he had with the Lord a year ago:

“He said to me, “I want you to watch for something”. He said, “When the present pope will address the United Nations and Congress it will be the beginning of the rise of the false church”…(Neville then quoted Rev 13:11-14)

“This year, during the last phase of the Blood Moon, the pope, this present pope, will be addressing the United Nations  (the day after) he will be addressing your Congress…that’s right after Yom Kippur – and just before Tabernacles.

“That speech will mark the first time ever a Roman Catholic pope has addressed Congress.

“This is a historic visit in a historic year when the United Nations marks its 70th anniversary.” (From 1:48:35 mark)

Neville went on to refer to many leaders thinking that unifying religions is the answer for bringing the nations peace, but

“The world church will include all of the world’s religions, except Judaism – and Christianity…This meeting will be the catalyst of that beginning.

“Our greatest problem isn’t going to be the Antichrist but the false church because legislation will be introduced that will forbid activities except for those who are of the false church…plus higher taxes to wipe out churches…

“The false church will have great political power and clout. It will strongly advocate the mark of the beast – that’s what scripture says!…

“This won’t affect the true church because it will arise in greater power, greater glory and strength to the dismay of the false church as millions of people come into the kingdom of God!”

Note: 1) 20th-26 Sept – the World Council of Churches is sponsoring the World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel: 2) 21st Sept – UN’s annual International Day of Peace: Bill Koenig asks, could this be the day the UN Security Council resolution establishing a Palestinian state is actually adopted?

JEWS LOOKING FOR MESSIAH

Kaduri readingTo my mind the most remarkable promise of this month is that Jewish rabbis are expecting Messiah. Those who took the link to an earlier post will have read the secret Rabbu Yitzak Kaduri kept about having met Yeshua and that the timing of PM Ariel Sharon’s death (11 January 2014) meant it would not be long before Ha’ Mashiach would come to Israel.

Thus, in seeing beyond Breaking Israel News’ report we could  reasonably expect thousands more orthodox Jews will to be given dreams and visions of the Messiah and to learn his true identity. Is this not prophesied in Zecharia 12 and that it will happen when the status of Jerusalem is constantly under international threat?

 10 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn…

For example, in July David Hathaway reported in Jesus Is Coming! (emphases mine):

“Jesus will come when the Jews call upon His Name! In June 2013 what the taxi driver said on the way back to the airport was an amazing revelation. He knew who we were, and was a religious Jew wearing a kippah, yet from the moment we got in the car he began the conversation so animatedly that he kept taking the wrong road! He kept saying, ‘Why did we kill Yeshua? He was a good man, He did nothing wrong, He killed no one but healed all who came. Was He Messiah, if so why did we not recognise Him, were we blind? We thought many people in our history were Messiah, but they are not alive today. I search the Scriptures for Him; can you show me where to find Him? All our nation is looking for Messiah at this moment, no one else can save us, can you show me the way?’

“This is why it is so important that we preach the Gospel – suddenly Israel is opening. God, through the Holy Spirit, is opening their hearts and minds to search for Him. The Bible is so clear, Jesus said, ‘If you seek Me you will find Me’.”

In the next part we further consider the Shemitah Year and how the Blood Moon Tetrad may connect with Prophetic Prayer Points for 2015-2020 brought by Charles Shamp.

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.

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.

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!

Fundamental flaw in Western society – re. Greece-Europe crisis, Humanism

“What qualifies you to comment on such a technically complex politico-economic topic?” you may ask. You could well think a hunch or mere coincidences, as in the preamble, to be just mere conjecture or insubstantial supposition.

Question Answered by Prophetic Word

Detail from Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: www.propheticartists.comMore than being an informed observer, I humbly submit a qualification additional to that of being a biblical student of history. Admittedly, it’s of an immaterial nature: a Holy Spirit gifting!  Six years ago Isabel Allum, the well-known teacher of prophecy, discerned it and thereby validated my decision 3 months earlier to write regularly because of an insight on the Bible (The ‘Endgame’ is now in play).

Forgive me for being so personal. It’s the first time of publicly sharing this, not to boast but to answer the above kind of question which readers’ may rightly entertain. In part, the prophetic insight Isabel brought us was as follows (with her emphases):

“…And I heard the Lord saying brother, you are a man of wisdom…He’s coming to release a new level of wisdom in you that far surpasses the wisdom of man and He’s going to make you a man of…

“And I heard the Lord say, an impartation like Daniel had is going to come into you and you will start understanding the ‘riddles’ of the Lord in a different way – the gift of interpretation itself as Daniel and Joseph had is going to come to you and God is going to open up your understanding to hear from heaven, not necessarily to understand the way men do but you will see; like Joseph said, interpreting dreams is God’s business not man’s business and dreams from the Lord cannot be interpreted through symbolism or analysis, only through revelation.

“And the Lord is going to give you the real thing and you will bring it and you will answer the questions of many. But I also heard the Lord saying He’s going to open up nations for you…”

Hence, my many references to sensing ‘God-incidents’ / ‘Invisible jigsaw’!

With that said, let’s turn our attention to the matter in hand:

A Niggling Notion

Kononia eNews_Breakup-of-EUAs stated in the preamble, this matter wouldn’t go away last week – it kept tapping within my spirit. Then along came inspiration in material hidden away ‘upstairs’. That post’s sandwich-style format applies here too: black text for first thoughts already drafted, as below; blue text relating to later ‘God-incidental’ finds; and black again for the conclusion, now expanded.

(Additionally, after writing both drafts yet another ‘confirmation’ came from the same source, but this time in a mailed letter!!)

Here are some brief thoughts on the financial collapse of Greece from a scriptural and spiritual perspective. In view of the direct historical relationship, this also applies to the pinnacle of Western civilisation in its supposedly advanced forms in Europe and North America.

The foundations of European and American civilisations are built upon ancient Greece, not on the later Roman Empire.  All our scholastic, intellectual, scientific, literary and political history and institutions are modeled upon those of the ancient Greeks’ patterns of thought. And most importantly, our free, democratic self-government is styled upon the example set by ancient Greece.

greek-democracy-symbol

Traditional and reformed churches so admired those ancient philosophers that theology got skewed away from the original, Hebraic foundations of our Christian faith.  Greek ideas of the human constitution as being composed only of body and soul omitted the third part which, according to a Hebraic understanding, is our personal human spirit.  We have a triune nature because we’re created in the Almighty’s image.

Hence, the importance of the discovery of notes from 2012 inserted into the preamble’s ‘taster’ on ‘Intellect or Revelation?’!!

The following quotations come from a paper I’d referred to during online discussion on Greek philosophy in December 2012 and ‘coincidentally’ found in our loft last week. It’s apposite to insert them in blue text (as explained above) into my remarks, between the drafted introduction and conclusion.

Humanism – Forerunner for Antichrist

As a consequence of the pre-reformation and reformed Church’s and the subsequent Enlightenment’s interest in ancient Greece, a subtle, misleading influence upon Western culture and religion developed through the introduction of humanism and its associated agnosticism and atheism.

Derek Prince was a fellow of King’s College Cambridge and a senior research student who specialised in the philosophy of Plato. Although highly qualified to comment upon the ancient Greeks and their subsequent influence, he had a life-changing encounter with the author of the Bible after being called up into military service in the Second World War. Derek was ‘born-again’ and became an very influential Christian teacher

Decades later, in 1993-4, he was given an insight into developments in USA and Israel and the conflict spanning both heaven and earth, as follows:

“The governments and the armies of this world, operating solely on the natural plane, have no understanding of the conflict and no power to deal with the satanic forces in the heavenlies. On the contrary, without realizing it, they themselves are manipulated and controlled by those forces. One essential requirement for victory is to identify the nature of the forces that are at work in any given situation.

“In recent months [in early 1990s] as I have been meditating on developments in the world—especially in the U.S.A. and Israel—and I believe that God has shown me the identity of the evil, deceptive power that Satan plans to use to consummate his purposes for the end of this age. It is HUMANISM.”

Derek had always thought humanism was “a comparatively harmless error” but upon consulting a dictionary he was taken aback by its definition, viz:

“…the denial of any power or moral value superior to that of humanity; the rejection of religion in favour of a belief in the advancement of humanity by its own efforts.

“I realized that humanism is not spiritually neutral. On the contrary, it is a deliberate denial and rejection of God’s power and authority. It is an anti-religious religion. For this reason, it can be—and often is—taught in educational systems, such as that of the USA, which prohibit the teaching of religion in its usual sense.” (Emphases added.)

In tracing this Greek concept back in time he noted its direct linkage in the dream image of Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar in chapter two of the Book of Daniel:

“I realised that it was Greece – more than any of the other empires – which, through its philosophy, reproduced itself in subsequent cultures“.

Beginning with their earliest philosopher they asserted that man is the highest authority in the universe and idolized the human mind, Derek writes,

“Aristotle’s concept of God was a perfect mind contemplating itself—because nothing less was worthy of its contemplation. Out of this the whole philosophy of rationalism has developed”.

With this idolatry came glorification of the male body and, “the Greeks also tended to downgrade the marriage relationship between a man and a woman, and to view a homosexual relationship between two men as being more “intellectually fulfilling”. 

Derek continues by pointing out that theso-called ‘gods’ of Greece exhibited all the moral failings of humanitya complete absence, in fact, of any binding moral code. This left man free to be his own god, and to establish his own moral code. After all, no people can be expected to live above the level of its own gods“.

Spirit of Humanism’s Offensive

“In 1992 the spirit of humanism launched a major new offensive against both the USA and Israel. Almost simultaneously, a cloud of dense spiritual darkness descended upon both nations.

“In their national elections that year the spiritual force that brought to power both the Clinton administration in the USA and the Labor Coalition in Israel was blatant, undiluted humanism. Both administrations represent an open and deliberate rejection of God’s righteous laws and of the covenants He made with man, first through Moses and then through Jesus Christ. They have demonstrated that, carried to its ultimate, humanism will believe anything  but the truth and will tolerate anything but righteousness.

“This exaltation of man is the force which will finally give rise to the Antichrist, whose name is the number of man (Rev. 13:18), the man of lawlessness, who opposes and exalts himself above everything that is called God or is worshiped, and even sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God (2 Thess 2:3–4).

With this he heads into a magnificent conclusion: 

“Before this final period of tribulation, however, God still has tremendous purposes to work out for both Israel and the Church. A harvest of mercy will precede the harvest of judgment. God’s preparation for this is revealed in Zechariah 9:13: “I will raise up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece…”  The “sons of Greece” are those who embrace the deception of humanism. The “sons of Zion” are those who take their stand upon the infallible Word of God, embracing both its promises and its covenants.”

It’s fascinating to dig this paper out of old folders for insertion herein only to find Derek’s conclusion is the same as that which was already in my mind!  But a republished letter on its way to me from his ministry has him adding an incisive scripture. More soon…

The Current Crisis

Several times the elected leaders of Greece have rejected legitimate demands for debt repayment by the nation’s European and IMF creditors. There’s been a massive run on the banks and the nation is completely bankrupt.

Telegraph Business front page today refers to a leaked IMF report saying “Greece will need drastic debt forgiveness” and warns that “Europe’s leaders must contemplate breaking EU treaty law to provide “Deep up-front haircuts” on Greece’s debt mountain”.

In IMF stuns Europe with call for massive debt relief, the leading financial journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard writes about the revolutionary nature of this report,

‘The International Monetary Fund has set off a political earthquake in Europe, warning that Greece may need a full moratorium on debt payments for 30 years and perhaps even long-term subsidies to claw its way out of depression.

“The dramatic deterioration in debt sustainability points to the need for debt relief on a scale that would need to go well beyond what has been under consideration to date,” said the IMF in a confidential report…

‘The findings are explosive. The document amounts to a warning that the IMF will not take part in any EMU-led rescue package for Greece unless Germany and the EMU creditor powers finally agree to sweeping debt relief…’

All this is especially interesting with 2014-2016 being Shemitah and Jubilee years, when ancient Israel cancelled all debts (see Wikipedia).

In tandem with financial turmoil, we’re also witnessing widespread rebellion in Europe and America against the moral and spiritual standards ordained by the Almighty. Those who once set the motto ‘In God We Trust’ (which is treated like a mascot!) have leaders who allow His commands to be treated with greatest contempt!  That nation born out of Europe proudly claimed ‘exceptionalism’, when in fact it’s no longer exceptional but apostate!

And the state named after its warrior leader and first president, George Washington, has been experiencing unusual temperatures consistently over 100 degrees Fahrenheit!

To my mind, these combined events speak strongly about the state of our ‘evolved’ Western society and civilisation – its beginning and its end.

Hopefully, it’s a warning that both ends of Euro-American civilisation are bankrupt – one the ancient historic root, the other its modern descendants –  one financially, the other morally and spiritually, with all the attendant consequences!!

Now it just so happens a couple of letters to one of the first churches planted in Europe are very instructive on this matter:

Apostasy and Deception

The Book of Acts records that, whilst on a mission in Asia Minor, the apostle Paul was supernaturally called to visit Macedonia over in mainland Europe (Acts 16). In about 49 AD he arrived in the port of Philippi in northern Greece and planted a house church led by a business woman known as Lydia. From there he and his companion Silas went south to Salonika (Thessalonica), found the Jewish synagogue and preached there. A thriving church of devout Greeks and some Jews was established, but they helped Paul to escape from his violent opponents. Within a couple of years he wrote from Corinth two concise letters to those new believers to clarify points arising from his teaching.

One of those themes was upon the expected return of the Lord Jesus Christ and Paul’s second letter clarified the brief reference made in the first, as follows.

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. [2 Thessalonians 2 NKJV per BibleGateway.com – Emphasis RB]

He proceeds at length to explain that the ‘mystery of lawlessness’ is already at work, but that someone who will be the very personification of evil will be revealed and come onto the world stage. Then the Lord will come from heaven and destroy him by the glory of His physical return to earth (2Thess 2:8)

Today – now – we’re well into that first stage, the ‘falling away’ from true faith in Jesus Christ, and which is also known as the ‘Great Apostasy’, as is so abundantly evident across the once-Christian Western world. (Eg. recent video clip on John Kilpatrick vision: ‘The United Apostates of America’.)  Paul proceeds,

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

This means that those who fall away from the fullness of faith as originally taught by the Apostles will become so unrighteous in God’s sight that they will be wide open to being deceived by Satan and his agents. They bring a distortion and twisting of the Gospel to accommodate people’s preferences and desires instead of obeying God’s commands.

It is clear this deception is the consequential result of not loving the truth, who is the very Word of God in the person of Jesus Christ, and thus not desiring Him and the salvation He bought them by dying in their stead on the cross.

The next verse is extremely ominous. Paul explains that, because their attitude remains deliberately ungodly, the Almighty is not only allowing them to be strongly deceived but is sending an irresistible delusion, the consequences of which will condemn them:

And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

By way of a careful caveat we need to note that a number of believers too readily quote verse 9 about some people through whom miracles, signs and wonders are displayed. As in my recent post on the accuser of the brethren attacking prophecies such self-appointed inquisitors claim all such demonstrations are deception. But upon reading and understanding the chapter in its entirety (as here) we find their claims to be rather judgemental.

Verse 12 gives the game away! Only those who despise the truth of the Gospel will be misled and suffer the consequences. Only a few years later Paul gave a full exposition on God’s wrath on unrighteousness in the early verses of his letter to the church in Rome – see Romans 1:18-32. (This too was written in Corinth, Greece.)

Conclusion

In my humble opinion this momentous economic crisis in the nation and continent which are the very roots of western civilisation is highly significant. It is not only a warning of economic but also of spiritual shaking.

Our leaders and fellow citizens who have chosen to rebel against the Holy One of Israel and His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, are now being warned of the consequences.

Soon there will no longer be any grace covering and blessing for reprobate, unrepentant hearts. Once they’re following the deceiver in his various guises, the Holy One Himself will let them stay deluded by their own lies and salvation will no longer be available!  A truly terrible personal place!

In all these musings it is significant, therefore, to re-discover the above quoted paper by Derek Prince. Equally amazing is the fact that as I was drafting both posts last week, a copy of his teaching letter Taking God Seriously was on its way in the post from his ministry!

This letter opens,

…If a person speaks to us, but we ignore — or even reject — much of what he says to us, we certainly are not taking him seriously. In fact, we are guilty of disrespect.

The same applies to God. If we ignore or reject much of what He says to us through the scriptures, we are not taking Him seriously. We are, in fact, treating Him with disrespect.

Yet this is how many Christians are relating to God. They treat His Word like a smorgasbord, picking out those portions that appeal to their taste and passing the others by.

Also, it concludes in the same vein as my preceding thesis by focussing upon the above verses 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10.

If we consider chapter two of the second letter to ‘Salonika’ in a reverse sequence, like reading an email thread, it helps me to gain a clear understanding of what the Lord is allowing and why – and then what will happen. I submit to you, this may bring a different focus from a usual reading and helps us to see things from the Lord’s perspective.

Undoubtedly, we’re now in ‘The Great Apostasy’ and Paul’s letter to the early church in Greece tells us what’s happening, what’s coming and why – and what the end will be!

May the Lord bless you and keep you…

The Signpost Message and The Shemitah: Mid-Year Progress

Time is short.Another ‘watcher’ also has his eye on time and Iran! (Recent posts refer.)

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The topic of this post has been on my mind for a while.  I thought it would be good to let brothers and sisters know what is happening.  And then several days ago Nelson wrote a comment that hit at some truth in the situation.

September 13, 2015

It seems that the Levitical seven-year cycle with that seventh year of rest known as the Shemitah is being used by God as a timepiece for everything prophetic these days.  Saddam began his conquests on the last day of a Shemitah.  9-11 happened on the last day of a Shemitah, as did the worst day of the financial crisis of 2008.  It wouldn’t surprise me if the Tribulation itself spanned over one of these cycles.

I had speculated that the Second Signpost would begin on or before the next Shemitah’s end on September 13, 2015; my speculation turned more towards anticipation after my…

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.

Yes, Saddam Hussein is also tied to the Shemitah

I strongly agree there’s ‘a divine rhythm in timing’ Mark. No doubt you were inspired to make this fascinating find! (See Wall St considers Biblical basis for economic crashes and Prophetic points to ponder on 9/11 for more on ‘The Harbinger’.)

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

This came as a surprise to me.  I was doing some research on Saddam Hussein this past week and stumbled across a little-reported fact.  The Second Signpost may yet prove it is to happen on or around the end of this current Shemitah year.  As we know from Cahn’s book The Harbinger, the 9-11 attack and the financial crisis both happened on the last day of the Shemitah in 2001 and 2008, respectively.  My own experience also became tied to this current Shemitah.

What is the Shemitah?  It is the seventh year and last year of a Biblical seven-year cycle found in Leviticus.  Though Biblically it is tied only to the land of Israel, this concept of a seven-year cycle is showing up in many places and ways.  The Signposts, the Tribulation and even the return of Christ may all be tied to the Shemitah.  I don’t know for…

Wall St considers Biblical basis of economic crashes

Soon after launching this blog I referred to the Biblical basis of economic cycles, as examined by accredited White House journalist William Koenig (see Points to ponder: 2011-2012).

Now, according to Discerning the Times, it’s reported in Washington that Wall Street analysts have pondered the mystery of what appears to be seven-year economic cycles. They’ve also wondered why crashes seem to come in September.

Jonathan Cahn, author of the mega-bestselling book “The Harbinger,” thinks he has figured it out.
