The “Who” Reveals the “What”
The “What” Reveals the “Who”
The Seventh Seal Opened
By Michael unto the Author
If there is a death in the family of a distant relative and we receive notification that we are remembered with a monetary amount from the deceased’s estate as our inheritance, how would we know that the person showing up at the door was the person or executor of the will authorized to disseminate the monetary amount or inheritance to us? If his name matches the name on the notification that we received, this is one indicator, but not enough to solidify he is that executor to give us our inheritance. However, when he reaches in his brief case and hands us the amount in question as a check drawn on the estate of the deceased, which we then cash at the bank verifying our inheritance in hand, we can be sure he is the executor by what we received from him.
In reverse if a man shows up at our door and hands us a check drawn on the estate of the deceased for the amount stated in the will without introducing himself, we can be reasonably sure on the preponderance of this evidence that he is the executor, further verified by him giving us his name. One proves the other. One complements the other.
Messiah Coming in the Name Identified in the Bible
Dispensing the Anointing, Thus Proves He Is Messiah.
If We Received the Anointing, from the Man
With the Name Identified in the Bible to Dispense It
Then that Man IS Messiah.
The Anointing is the Holy Spirit,
The Mindset of God in Messiah
Communicated to Us, Giving Us
A Clear Foundational Understanding of Truth
That Leads into ALL Further Truth.
The silence in Revelation 8:1 is what one hears if he is still sealed out, no understanding. We will discuss the relevance of the “half hour” shortly. However, once the seal is opened we have “WHO,” it is that will bring Redemption. Christians will say that it is Jesus Christ. Jews will say it is Messiah. They both are correct, but under what name??? We must have understanding how it applies to the coming of Messiah and in what name he MUST come, in the FINAL and FULL Redemption and Resurrection. Otherwise we have received a deception, brought in the wrong name, and therefore we have received an antichrist, imbibed a false message as being the truth.
Now those nominal and elementary in their study of the Bible will immediately go to the Book of Philippians and rightly raise question because Apostle Paul says:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The Question Then Rises from the Serious Seeker
To what “Jesus” or “Jesus Christ” would every knee bow? He said in Matthew 24:4-5, that many would come in that name and deceive many. It must be Messiah, proven to be so, by revealing the truth in the Sealed Book.
What Book Is Opened,
Once the Seals Are Removed???
Like the other truths behind the previous seals, once they are opened we can see they are plainly in the Bible bringing the Bible into a perspective not seen before. Therefore, the Book, in the hand of God on the throne taken by the Lamb and opened, is the Law and the Prophets which once opened for understanding clarifies the New Testament and especially the Book of Revelation, all heretofore NOT UNDERSTOOD, but coming to clarity once opened by Messiah unto us. This also can be termed opening the Book of Redemption. Again, we see the complementary relationship. On one hand, Messiah opens the Seals to us proving he is Messiah. On the other, the Seals being opened to us can only come from One Source, Messiah. The Seals, stated to be upon the backside of The Book in Revelation 5, being opened or loosed, “the precept upon precept,” “line upon line,” of the Word of the Lord as stated in Isaiah 28:7-20, are then orderly, thus showing proper progression and the end in view.
Previously the Bible, well proven by the various interpretations and sects of religion claiming insight, remained confusing so that we would fall backward and are taken by a carnal and childlike view. Messiah, the same one in Isaiah 28 that has the “plummet” and “line,” puts things in the proper sequence, by proper interpretation. Like so many pieces of an enormous jigsaw puzzle that are assimilated from one’s kitchen table to form the correct picture on the front of the box containing those pieces, God, as to His nature toward us, appears then in a more mature light for maturing Sons. We begin to understand His purpose in the overall way He has dealt with mankind through history to this point. In bringing that understanding, the childlike view and the lack of confidence we have toward Him, begins to dissipate as His purpose in us becomes clear.
The Book of Redemption Opened
It is in this manner we say the Seals, once removed, also opens the Book of Redemption. Therefore, Messiah brings Redemption in that he opens the book removing the seals. It is the knowledge and understanding contained in the Sealed Book that brings Redemption. Redemption is only relevant when something is lost and needs to be recovered. It is specifically in modern times referenced when something is “pawned” or “placed in hock” for a loan against that “something” or “merchandise.” When the merchandise is redeemed, it has the loan or price returned to the pawnbroker where the object can be freed from all liens and responsibilities and given back to the original owner. When Adam left his first estate of confidence in God and died spiritually, he put into hock his link with God, which is life, for the reward of acting (as he thought) as a separate entity from God, being a minor god under the illusion of self-destiny and freewill. A price was required for him to have that proper life and connection with God returned. The price required was Adam’s death to his understanding that he thought was life. To put it another way, Adam’s price, and therefore our price we must pay for redemption, is dying to death, “death” being our false understanding. In other words, he died initially by taking his own understanding, but did not realize what the ‘death’ was. He only knew his link to God was lost, which also took his confidence away as well, yielding an existence of fear and uncertainty depending on one’s own decision, making process. As we have shown previously in Section X, this is “death” with “hell” following as part of this package in contrast to “life” and “heaven” which are God’s mindset and the confident existence following from being in the seat of true understanding respectively. Only recognizing that he was dead and thereby accepting that his understanding was wrong, being the death or instrument of death, could he pay the price of death, killing or cutting off the false understanding, which action is required so that he could receive life which is proper understanding. We must pay back to the pawnbroker / God, . . . the amount we borrowed, which is OUR perceived understanding of self-destiny. We must give that back to God in order to redeem or receive again what we put in hock which is our link with God in confidence and truth. Ousted from Eden, Adam and Eve propagated the race of mankind, as a dead race spiritually, that is awaiting redemption back to what Adam and Eve first had, as well as the completion of that process they aborted which stopped their proper growth in the knowledge and understanding of God. It is the proper understanding or coming to the full mindset of God, that would have brought them to maturity as true and completed Sons of God even as Messiah is. This redemption is by a proper understanding and life replacing our false understanding and death. It is Messiah that is completed as a Son in the first instance. This completion called also “the adoption” or official recognition by God of his completed Son then endows that Son to be able to produce other Sons of God by instilling in them the same understanding that will come to maturity in them as well.
Now that is exactly what Paul presents as the point of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. We must die as Christ died, but rather spiritually in application, and be raised in newness of life or in the new understanding which is life. It is in mindset or the understanding where Adam fell short bringing death spiritually. In that spiritual death, he was cut off from God by having a wrong understanding that he thought was correct. That very wrong understanding IS the death whereby he died.
Now thinking we are alive as we are born into the world with our sense of self-determination, freewill, and choice, we must pay the price of redemption, even as Christ died physically, by dying spiritually, or no longer believing we are self-determined, free-moral-agents, but rather are indeed God’s Sons with God doing and thinking all we do or think. Thereby we are redeemed by paying the price of death - cutting off the concept of self-destiny, freewill, and choice as being false, dead, and to be no longer considered, we then rise, or . . . then are redeemed back to our status with God that Adam lost. At that point, we are brought further past what Adam had in part; we are brought to full understanding and maturity as manifested Sons of God. We have access to what Messiah has, provided we die to our life and understanding, which is indeed death, and acquire his mindset and understanding which is indeed life. In short, this is what it meant to Paul when stressing in Hebrews that the believers in profession go on to perfection by entering in with Christ to the full understanding which is the Heavenly Holy of Holies.
Uncertainty: Hell Follows or Accompanies Death
Confidence was lost due to Adam not being in the full understanding and yet proceeding to act as if he indeed had full understanding. From that point, he died or was spiritually cut off from a proper understanding of God and therefore life, by taking what he perceived to be his own understanding. Thus, when mankind is redeemed it will be by the understanding Adam lost, along with confidence and trust in God as Sovereign that accompanies it, being restored. This is what also delivers one from hell which is the uncertain existence of depending upon oneself and its accompanying lack of confidence. Adam did not attain to God’s image and likeness, which was the goal for him, but stopped short. When having the revelation of truth opened behind the Seals given to us based upon Messiah’s voice of truth opening the Book of Redemption and giving us eternal life via giving us proper understanding, we are redeemed back to our relationship of confidence in God and life which Adam lost. In fact, we are carried even further to Full Son maturity; something Adam never had, the goal in God’s statement “let us make man in our image and likeness,” even as Messiah also is.
The Meaning of Redeemed by Messiah’s Blood
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul.
A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
I Peter 1:18-25
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever.
24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away:
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
As we have pointed out numerous times, the Apostles, and those taught directly by them, entered with FULL understanding into the Heavenly Holy of Holies. Therefore they, and those to whom they wrote their letters, understood properly the terms and uses of them as the Apostles also did. THIS IS NOT THE UNDERSTANDING IN CHRISTENDOM TODAY WHICH IS VOID OF THE SPIRIT OF FULL UNDERSTANDING, prior to this message here of full disclosure. As seen above from Leviticus 17:11, compared with Proverbs 14:30, and carried forward into Peter’s Epistle, the life of the flesh is in the blood and a sound heart (understanding) is the life of the flesh. Peter says in verse 23, we are born again by the WORD of GOD. Of course, he is referring to receiving the Word given by him and the Apostles in truth that was received by them from Messiah.
Bringing All Factors Together
Now putting this together with all that has been stated leading to this place in our publication, the answer is simply this. The understanding of truth, the voice of Messiah in clarity, as revealed in the opening of the Seals, is the life, the mind, and viewpoint of God that is in Messiah; thus, it is Messiah’s knowledge, understanding, and wisdom that brings us to life, when given to us. It is the new birth replacing or superseding our first, carnal fleshly birth as natural men. It brings us higher to our spiritual birth as spiritual men and Sons of God. The “sound heart” of which Proverbs speaks has nothing to do with the physical organ of the heart as literalism may view this, nor does the blood have anything to do with the physical blood as well. It is what is symbolized or in them spiritually that is the point. With the shed blood of Christ fulfilling the Passover Lamb aspect of the spring Holy Days, joined with his resurrection, we came 7 Weeks later to Pentecost. On the basis of the life given up of Messiah, which is what we see in the blood shed, we have that same life, mindset, understanding that was in Messiah given to Peter and the others concerning the fulfillment of Pentecost called “receiving the Holy Spirit.” It is in the whole process applied to us spiritually with understanding, that Christ performed physically and literally, whereby we understand that we must die to self-determination, freewill and choice, or self-destiny, even as he died literally, and be raised in HIS life or in his mindset and understanding on the other side of death in resurrection.
This again, as we have stated earlier a few paragraphs ago, brings mankind back to where Adam hocked his link with God for the false understanding, which is death and separation from God – self-destiny. It is being born again of the Word, the Voice of truth in Messiah, the clear understanding of Sovereignty and God’s meticulous control, that we are brought to real eternal life. We are then placed upon the foundation and link to God from where all subsequent growth will proceed from that point as Sons of God. The blood is the life given up that comes back to us in Messiah’s understanding or life in us. This gives us the inheritance that mankind forfeited, that place of blessing to which he stopped short, from the beginning; hence, it is redemption restoring that which was lost.
Redemption for All and Not Just Israel
As we also detailed in Section VIII, the cross of Messiah where the blood was shed is the symbol of Christ’s rejection whereby the open door of access was given to the Gentiles. Therefore, by his blood or life, the redemption is extended as it states in Revelation 5:9 outside of the ranks of physical Israel, bringing in those – “out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” The life given up witnessed in the shed blood by means of Christ’s rejection and crucifixion, opened that door of access to the full understanding of God called the “Holy Spirit” secluded previous solely for Israel. The point we wish to stress here is that the physical entity of the blood itself redeemed nothing. It was the blood that redeemed via the life of, or “in” the flesh – the understanding within Messiah – the sound heart of understanding in that truth, knowledge, and revelation held behind the Seven Seals that Messiah gives, which indeed redeems and brings us back in connection with God, allowing us to continue on to be created in God’s image and likeness as the finish of our journey which was aborted and lost in Adam some 6000 years ago.
In What Name Will Our Inheritance,
Our Promised Redemption, Come???
In researching the Will and Testament of that Inheritance, the Bible, we have the name of Messiah in FULL Redemption at the end time in a name “written” according to Revelation 19:11-13 where it states:
… he has a name written, that no man knew but he himself…
It goes on to say:
… his name is called the Word of God…
In Revelation 2:17 we see it is he that overcomes that is given:
… a white stone, and in that stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it…
In Revelation 3:12 we see again to him that overcomes:
… I (Jesus Christ that is talking in this scripture to John) will write upon him my new name…
In Revelation 3:21 we see the first and primary overcomer, as the example to others to overcome, is Messiah:
To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Now just where do we expect to find this name that IS ALREADY written that only Messiah knows is his name for the Final Appearing or Second Coming in victory??? Where else but the Law and the Prophets, where it says in Isaiah 52, in speaking of the final Redemption of Israel in verse 6:
Therefore, my people shall know my name: therefore, they shall know IN THAT DAY (once Messiah is here and reveals it with understanding, even as he did with the Apostles) that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.
Clearly it is indeed written in the Law and the Prophets and is Michael, the Great Prince of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7. In short Jesus of the New Testament returns under a new name, which is not a new name just decided out of thin air, but the one he had all along “written” in the Law and the Prophets. We see it is Michael the Archangel, or Chief Messenger of the Covenant according to Malachi 3:1, which is the proper translation of Jude 9:
9 Yet Michael the archangel (Chief Messenger), when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
As the other, earlier believers with pure truth that entered the Holy of Holies with Christ and therefore had the Holy Spirit that brings understanding wherewith they wrote the letters in the New Testament, Jude was speaking from the Law and the Prophets and in particular,
1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
So, we see in Jude 9 it says Michael said: “the Lord rebuke thee.” In Zechariah 3:2, it says the Lord said these words. Therefore, Michael and the Lord is the same person. This meaning is displayed by Paul in his statements in I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 as they compare with Jesus words in John 5:24-29 when he says in verse 16:
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
And then Jesus states in John 5:24-29:
“ . . . the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God . . .”
Bias Caused by False Interpretation Fed to Us over the Centuries by the Blind Leaders of the Blind
With No Authority to Teach the Bible
We need to remove from our view, those preconceived fantasies based upon the interpretation of literalism in the false “doctrine of angels” presented by the false prophets and their erroneous teaching of a race of superhuman creatures leftover from a previous creation that do the Lord’s bidding. This concept is forced in our faces over many centuries when heathen principles and fables entered into Jewish and Christian ranks. They are staring out at us from “pictured” Bibles and out of the famous art works of many artists down through the centuries, not only in their paintings and sculptures, but in their commissions to build the cathedrals of Roman Catholicism and later Protestantism.
The Source of This Confusion and Mixture
This can be traced, for the most part, back to gods and goddesses of Greek and Roman mythology. Jews, since their time in Egypt, Assyria, and Babylon, as depicted in Ezekiel 23-24, well witnessed in their departures into idolatry, and Christian ranks as well, from the time of the supposed conversion of Roman Emperor Constantine, have the mix of heathen cultures with the Bible. All of this was handed back to the people from tradition and religion proliferated and riddled with these superstitious teachings. They then SEEMINGLY appear supported by the Bible. However, this is ONLY upon one first believing in those superstitious teachings, being under these views as a child in “Sunday School” or instruction governed by some “church liturgy,” and THEN reading the Bible through that view as one matures into physical adulthood. It is thus this superstition has grown and been thoroughly entrenched in religious minds. Needless to say, one must indeed “overcome” this menagerie of deception, in order to have the new name of Christ properly understood or written upon the individual overcoming, in order to correctly understand in what name Messiah is manifested in his Second and Final Ministry.
Remember All Things Are of God
And Serve His Greater Purpose
However, we must keep in mind that although negative and false, these superstitious and spurious, carnal views also are a part of God’s plan to have such things proliferated, all being part of the strong delusion of Ezekiel 14:1-11 and II Thessalonians 2 in some capacity and place. It is here we can practically see why Michael the Great Prince is misunderstood in many of today’s religious realms and thought to be a separate entity from Messiah altogether. The spurious, superstitious doctrine of angels carried to its modern extremes, totally obscures the fact that Messiah has his name written, just as plain as it can possibly be, in Daniel 10 and 12. Hence, because it is not “Jesus,” as Mary was told to name him in his first coming, it is a NEW name written. It is understood clearly and only by him, but given to those who would be enlightened, thus “overcoming” the shortsightedness and lies of the false prophets down through the centuries that have come in Christ’s name of his first ministry, “Jesus Christ,” deceiving many, as stated in Matthew 24:4-5 and 23-27, as well as Luke 21:8. Overcoming the concept of self-destiny, which Adam imbibed and consequently all of mankind as well, Messiah became the first manifested Son, or as Revelation just stated it above, the one who “sat down with His Father in His Father’s throne.” We, as second born Sons by hearing Messiah’s voice and truth, also overcome self-destiny and sit down with Messiah in his throne. We, THEN, are at one with Messiah and our Father God. In this condition, the false apostles and lies are understood as just that . . . lies . . . and rejected. Not having come to this overcoming status, as is the fallen case in all of religion as we write this publication, the total profession has believed the lie. They are rejected out of the Word of God or, as stated in Revelation 3:17-22, spewed out of God’s mouth. In such a condition, they are in need of full salvation from its inception, having nothing left of truth in its purity as we enter this final stage of God’s dealings with mankind.
Sticking to the Word
WITHOUT Conjecture and Theory
A Concise View and Capsulation of Angels - Messengers
On the contrary to the nearly 100 percent belief of the masses in such folklore of magical beings secretly watching and doing God’s bidding by command from some ethereal, literal place and beaming down in something that resembles science fiction, a thorough examination of ALL the scriptures with Strong’s Concordance in hand, without superimposing upon them the spurious views of those not having authority to interpret, will reveal the following:
· God appeared in a body singularly as one person or messenger, or bodies as a group of messengers, from time to time to deliver a message. This appearance, usually followed by a disappearance, is called a “Messenger of the Lord” translated for the most part “Angel of the Lord.” Another term used in modern vernacular, although not stated as such in the Bible, is a “theophany.” To superimpose more than ONLY THAT, upon these appearances in the Bible, is unauthorized, spurious conjecture, and promotion of fantasy and not fact.
· More times than these special appearances of God in this manner, the Word of the Lord came to the Prophets who were also “messengers.” The forerunner to the Messiah and the Messiah directly are messengers in Malachi 3:1 and translated exactly that same way, “messenger.”
3 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
We know that both of these “men” were John the Baptist and Jesus Christ respectively. The word in Hebrew is given in Strong’s Concordance as 4397 and can be translated “angel” or “messenger.” It is the exact word, “messenger,” Strong’s 4397 in Malachi 3:1 translated as “angel” elsewhere. It is translated “angel” in
15 And he (Jacob) blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
Here “angel” and “God” are seen as the same in context bringing redemption. Now clearly the only “messenger” that can bring redemption is Messiah. Now following on, once translating the word “arch” as “chief,” its meaning in the original Greek, and then “angel” as we have already considered as “messenger,” we understand that Messiah in Malachi 3:1 is called the “Messenger of the Covenant” and Jude 9 calls the Lord, “Michael, the Chief Messenger or Archangel.” We know, as just stated, the angel or messenger that brings redemption is Messiah, the Messenger of the Covenant, Michael the Great Prince, Michael the Chief Messenger, Michael the Archangel, the Lord himself – Jesus Christ. From here Jude 9 does not stand alone in interpretation but finds an abundance of support from the rest of the Bible.
Understanding “the Lord Rebuke Thee (Satan)”
Comparing still further with the First Ministry of Messiah in Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, and Luke 4:1-13, we see it was Jesus Christ in dispute with Satan in the wilderness temptation where he used the Word of the Lord, the Word being God according to John 1:1, to be victorious and begin his public ministry immediately thereafter. Additionally, we know according to John 8:36-47, those that contended with Christ about the Law of Moses were labeled by Jesus:
…ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do…
Numerous occasions are found all through the testimonies of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John of such encounters which clearly, along with Zechariah 3:1-2 just quoted above, are exactly that of which Jude is speaking in Jude 9.
A False Premise Not Based upon the Law and the Prophets
Can be Deductively Supported from that Point Forward,
Using the New Testament for Private Interpretation.
Again, making the Word of God of no effect through privately interpreted fantasy, nowhere found in the Old Testament, New Testament false prophets have an interpretation of Jude 9 that says this was an argument between ethereal-spirit-beings disputing where to bury Moses’ literal body. This farce, from unenlightened minds, comes from not knowing the truth about Michael the Chief Messenger from the beginning and then combining that with a form of deductive reasoning around the fact that Deuteronomy 34 says God buried Moses in an unknown place. From there, they really run amuck with a totally, unsupported theory that Satan and Michael had an argument about where Moses was to be buried, supposing to make a shrine out of it, and therefore a form of idolatry. So, God supposedly, in this concocted scenario, intervened and shut the whole thing down to avoid that possibility, burying Moses in an unknown place. From here those of this mindset try and support that concept by using Peter’s idea to build tabernacles to Moses, Elijah, and Christ in the Mount of Transfiguration experience of Matthew 17, Mark 9, and Luke 9, that was condemned by God making it clear to revere only Christ.
If They Get It Right in Paul’s Statement
Why Not with Jude’s???
It is interesting that they read Paul’s statement in II Corinthians 3:15, and correctly know that when he says, “when Moses is read,” it simply means when Moses’ written record, of the Torah or Law from Genesis through Deuteronomy inclusive, “is read.” It does not mean, as may be ridiculously interpreted, that Moses literal body has writing upon it that “is read.” Yet when it comes to the “body of Moses,” in an effort to support their ludicrous doctrine privately interpreted out of Jude 9, they miss altogether the obvious point that the “body” in dispute was the first five books of Moses or the “body of his work in writing,” exactly the way Paul is also referencing it in II Corinthians 3:15. Jude 9, other than the direct reference in Zechariah 3:1-2, is supported by many examples of Jesus rebukes to Satan. This simply means that the application and interpretation of the “body of Moses” or the Law of Moses, was in constant dispute between Messiah, Michael the Archangel versus the interpretation placed upon it by the Pharisees and leadership of Israel represented as the mind of Satan accusing Messiah. This is clear in the record of Jesus’ public ministry, whereas there is no record of the fantasy view just stated above, which is pure conjecture. As we have pointed out in previous examples, this is but another that reveals that the natural, carnal mind of man, although in a place of honor over others to teach them, understands not, as stated in Psalms 49:20, and makes foolishness out of the precious and spiritual truth properly interpreted from God’s Word. We trust the reader gets the point.
The Angels of God in Heaven
According to Ephesians 2, Apostle Paul and those in the First Resurrection were raised from being dead in trespasses and sins and to then sit with Christ in heavenly places. This is the simple meaning of the “angels in heaven.” Down through time Abraham, Moses, and the Prophets, as well as all who believed in God’s Sovereignty and awaited the final redemption for the world at large, were those in the “place or seat of understanding” or “in heaven.” They carried the truth as God’s Messengers or Angels. This is what is understood by the “angels of God in heaven.” Simple enough, right??? That is . . . UNTIL such terms are caught up in the hoopla of religion as we have given above, and the foolishness they have made out of spiritual truth when interpreting by literalism, and further violation of not consulting the Old Testament to understand the New.
Angels of Satan or the Devil in Heaven
If one will check again with Strong’s Concordance as to Ephesians 6 in comparison with Ephesians 2, he will find the same word in Greek translated “heavenly places” in Ephesians 2 as “high places” in Ephesians 6 when referring to wickedness being in heaven as well, against which the believers, angels of God, wrestled. This is the understanding of Revelation 12 and the war in heaven. Both parties claim to be correct and are therefore both in the “seat of understanding” or “in heaven” by “profession.” Within the profession of Christianity and even Judaism before it, they carried great official weight due to being in the position as authoritative; yet, they were false prophets and apostles, all carrying THEIR version of interpretation of the Law of Moses and later again THEIR version of the meaning of the writings and letters of the true Apostles, thus wielding their false authority over the people. They are at war or odds with those that are true Prophets and Apostles in the contest between the “wheat and tares” of Matthew 13:36-40.
Same Age-Old Conflict:
Sovereignty versus Self-Destiny
God’s Angels or Messengers are operating from the stand point of God’s Sovereignty and the others, Satan’s Angels are functioning from the basis of self-determination, freewill, and choice. The end of this battle comes after the Second Ministry and Coming of Christ when God’s Sovereignty is triumphant removing Satan and his messengers from their, “so called” and “self-professed,” enlightened position. This is the scenario of Revelation 12 when the Dragon and his angels are cast out of heaven to the earth. There are no spooks forming armies hurling spears and fireballs at one another, which is another conjecture of immature children handling the Bible with unauthorized hands of literalism void of understanding.
Summary Concerning Angels
In summary, the Angels of God are special appearances of God Himself miraculously, as it would seem, followed by a disappearance. They are additionally those that brought God’s Word called “Prophets” and later those of understanding called “Apostles.” It is all for the purpose of delivering the “message” or the “Word,” which is God as Spirit articulated into that message for our understanding according to John 1, of which the Messiah is the supreme manifestation of that Word and Message as the Chief Messenger or Archangel.
Angels of God – Angels of Satan
From this understanding, the remainder of the Bible on this subject will open up to the reader in sincere search of answers that are logical and lead upward in maturity to Sons of God. God’s Messengers, Angels, or Sons are those down through time since Adam that adhere, as Abraham, to God’s Sovereignty. Satan’s Messengers, Angels or sons are those down through time since Adam that adhere to self-determination, freewill, and choice, having a form of religion that constantly condemns them and others, thus taking peace from the earth and bringing us to the destruction of this whole system upon which it is built. This is, again, by God’s design to bring us all, both classes, to the resurrection and full truth eventually, in the glorious end in view of God’s Great Plan now unfolding before us. One group will be first proven wrong – eternal condemnation being shown to be their concept on which they are standing, as they come to enlightenment. The other group will be verified as correct all along – eternal life being shown to be their concept on which they are standing. As stated in Daniel 12:3 and Isaiah 29:9-24, they turn many to righteousness by extending proper understanding in THE EVERLASING GOSPEL, the only message of full truth carried to the ends of the world at that time of full disclosure, as here given in this publication and website.
Again, Guessing at a Sealed Book
UNTIL the Time of the End
We know the Book of Daniel was sealed “unto the time of the end,” in Daniel 12:4 yet, Revelation 22:10-11 says the prophecy of Revelation is NOT sealed “for the time is at hand.” In other words, the Book of Daniel and Revelation are unsealed at the end time by Messiah, Michael the Great Prince. In Revelation 22:10-11 the Book is left unsealed by John the Apostle because he WAS in the Day of the Lord and the “time of the end” of Daniel 12:4 via this vision and discourse with Christ, according to Revelation 1, the time of Christ’s physical presence on earth fulfilling the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week not fulfilled during Christ’s First Ministry. However, OUTSIDE of actually being in the Final Appearing or Day of the Lord, the Book remained Sealed. Thus, to us awaiting the Second Coming down through the centuries it is still sealed. The ONE who gives that Mindset or understanding that opens or removes those Seals is Michael the Great Prince, present again, who, via this publication to the reader, is giving him that Mindset and understanding of the Sealed Book, thus UNSEALING it via the understanding thereof. Here again we repeat, in giving that understanding he verifies he is Messiah, Michael of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7. In that he IS that one, he follows by GIVING us that understanding. The door swings both ways.
The Name of Messiah for the Final Redemption
Indeed, Michael of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7 is the name in the end time of the same Messiah, Jesus Christ that was present in 26-30 CE the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. It is clearly revealed with understanding in the opening of the Seventh Seal by the one with that name, however, . . . ONLY when he is present again. The type or shadow of this shift in name whereby it is publicly presented is first established in Messiah ben (son of) Joseph. Joseph was the original name known to Israel. Once rejected, he came to prominence as Zaphnathpaaneah and ruled over Egypt. Once restored to his brethren, he was once again known to them as Joseph. So, we see through Daniel, Michael is the name given to Israel for future deliverance based upon Israel accepting his rule over them, coming to their end under the spirit of the “Willful King,” as given in Daniel 11:45 moving to Daniel 12:1. He was rejected and under the name “Jesus” came to reign over the Gentiles. Once restored to Israel and his brethren, he will be known as Michael once again in full deliverance.
Breaking Down the Name, Its Parts and Meanings
In Hebrew, this translates as Mi-cha-El, “who-is like-God,” Ha-Tsar, “the-Prince,” Ha-Gadol, “the-Great.” Like many languages other than English, the adjectives come after, rather than before, the noun. This is true of French for example where “la voiture blanche,” means “the white car” but is actually spoken as it is written here, “the car white.” So, we have Mi cha el, Ha Tsar, Ha Gadol in Hebrew, literally in English “Michael - the Prince - the Great,” spoke in common English order “Michael, the Great Prince.” In Hebrew, this is also Michael Shane Sofer and in English is Michael Craig Clark. “Sofer” means “scribe.” A scribe is also a “priest” as seen in Ezra 7:11. The Scribe and Priest who records the written word from generation to generation as copies of the Torah, or First Five Books of Moses, is well understood in Judaism. In fact, it is upon a hand-written, perfect copy of Torah being delivered to the local gathering of Jews in any place, that they are then considered an official synagogue. Down through the centuries we have record keepers and administrators of businesses and estates stated in Old English to be a “clark.” “Clark” has in recent years evolved to the modern derivative “clerk.” It is such recorders and keepers of records that are the ones that give interpretation as to what the record is stating, what it means. and what it reveals or shows. Today, one of the chief examples of this interpretation is a clerk called a CPA, certified public accountant. They are called forward in a government audits of someone’s records of financial transactions and appropriations of funds. Such clerk, being the one that recorded same, must be the one held in expertise to give forth that record with full explanation.
Michael the High Priest
It is within the terminology, “Michael the High Priest,” another rendering of Michael the Great Prince, that Isaiah 22:15-25 is fulfilled.
15 Thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,
16 What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulcher here, as he that hews him out a sepulcher on high, and that graves an habitation for himself in a rock?
17 Behold, the Lord will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.
18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.
19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:
21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house.
24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.
25 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the Lord hath spoken it.
We understand that the former manner which the leadership of Israel, Zionists, have ruled the world represented in Shebna, the scribe, the treasurer, will be removed. As we have shown in Daniel 11, and will show further in our presentation of 5th and 6th Trumpet / Plague at the end of this publication, the treasurer aspect is in modern day Zionism and its Machiavellian control of the stock market, gold, and certainly oil. It is in the son of Hilkiah the High Priest, Eliakim that proper rule will be established replacing that method of rule and operation. This is the same thing as the willful king of Daniel 11:45 coming to his end and Michael standing up in Daniel 12:1. Once again, we have Messianic prophecy that appears to say this is true of the parties actually mentioned or stated within that prophecy of Isaiah 22, but it is clearly pointing to the end time fulfillment of all prophecy in Messiah, the Great High Priest. This is also the fulfillment of the Priesthood of the highest order that appeared to Abraham, Melchisedec, that introduces us to that which is eternal, not temporary, but forever, in the message he brings which is THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, that puts us in direct relationship to God as Father, through His manifested Son, according to Genesis 14:18-20, Psalms 110, and Hebrews 7.
Half Hour of Silence in Heaven
Any timing is marked by a clear place to start that time and a clear place to end it. We have seen from Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 3:21, and Revelation 19:11-13, the new name was understood only by Messiah, although once revealed from the Bible by him, we can enter with understanding as well. Therefore, ALL that he is given as to understanding by God that sits upon the throne in Revelation 4, also written in the Sealed Book of Revelation 5, we can understand also, through Messiah, the Lion and the Lamb that takes the Book, being found worthy to open it unto us, bringing Full Redemption.
When Was that Sealed Book
FULLY Opened to the Messiah???
Following the Path to Blessing
The Importance of Daniel 9:24.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.
Messiah Does Not Know
Until God Gives Him Understanding
The Key of David
And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
At the time of the prophecy in Isaiah 22:22, Messiah and his First Ministry were yet to come or future. In Revelation 3:7 we see it is true as ‘past tense’ during John’s vision in the Book of Revelation, of Jesus Christ in the Day of the Lord or the time and events of the Second Coming bringing FULL Redemption. By the way of the key of David, Messiah is revealed knowledge and understanding, that “opens” sealed truth which remains from that point as established eternal truth, however still within Messiah, yet to be given to others. It always was truth but is “opened” or revealed by Messiah to others at a certain juncture and place in God’s Plan. Moreover, the knowledge and understanding he has, is to “shut” that which can never be opened again. In other words, perfect truth expels permanently - previous lies. Doctrines exposed for their shortsighted views or outright falsehoods are never opened or taught again, just the same way we would no longer teach our children such things as spontaneous generation. Before further enlightenment afforded mankind by the invention of the microscope and knowledge of germs and things to small to detect with the naked eye, it was held that living creatures could arise from nonliving matter such as fleas arising from dust, or maggots from dead flesh. So likewise, once knowledge comes to Messiah, the ignorance and mystery factor is dispelled. We notice in the prophecy, in Isaiah 22:22, it says God WILL lay on his shoulder the key of David, yet, Revelation 3:7, remembering this is said to John being in the Day of the Lord at the end time and being shown those mysteries, shows Messiah WITH the key in possession.
Messiah Did NOT Know “How Long”?!?!
As we have stressed from Luke 21, Acts 1, and Christ’s answers to his disciples, he knew “what” but not “when” of the Second Coming. The crucial point here is that Messiah is given knowledge at the appointed time, giving him those answers and end to the mysteries only partially given to him in his First Ministry. This revelation, given with the missing factor of “when” or a clear understanding of timing, left the Apostles and true believers, uninformed in certain things until the time of the end when he would be here again and have the complete package or the Seven Seals removed releasing the understanding withheld behind them. THE QUESTION: WHEN WOULD HE HAVE THAT “KEY OF DAVID” THUS REVEALING THE FULL SEVEN SEALED MYSTERY???
What Did Messiah and Those
Of the First Resurrection Have and NOT Have
From 30 CE Onward???
They Had the Truth behind the First Four Seals,
Broad Knowledge, But NOT Specific, of the Sixth and Seventh Seal as to the “How” And Who”
Of the Finished Plan of Redemption.
They, Like Messiah, Did Not Know
The “When” of the Fifth Seal
They knew God as controlling ALL things, meticulously by the counsel of His preordained and predetermined Will, the truth behind the First Seal. They were quite clear that God was as much in control of a believer as an unbeliever, thus in ALL men working His Will, so they approached and treated everyone according to this knowledge, the truth behind the Second Seal. They were clear by this standard as to those ordained to be false prophets, the truth behind the Third Seal. Finally, they understood by the truth and right message and measure given by the Messiah versus the false prophets’ false message, exposed behind the Fourth Seal. In summary, they COMPLETELY had the truth behind the First Four Seals. They knew much about the way the Second Coming would occur as to the removal of Israel’s government and confidence just before that time, the truth behind the Sixth Seal in the broad view, however short of the meticulous details, symbolized in metaphors to John by Messiah concerning the end time. They understood that Michael was Messiah, the general truth behind the Seventh Seal, but NOT HOW or WHEN he would know the remainder of what was needed for the final sequence of events and the FULL Redemption extended to all mankind thereby, thus they had no FULL insight into the half hour of silence which IS the Seventh Seal. As far as TOTAL revelation they understood only the truth behind the First Four Seals, the true nature of God in the First Two, and the true nature of that which stood opposed in the Third and Fourth.
Whatever Messiah Had to Give, They Received.
It Is Called the “Seal of God” or the “Holy Spirit.”
It Is a Clear Understanding as a Foundation of ALL Truth
Thus, Leading One on that Foundation INTO All Truth.
This is what sealed in the company symbolized as the 144,000 in the First Resurrection of Revelation 7 that we just considered in Section X. As we have made abundantly clear, it was FIRST given to Peter as the Keys to the Kingdom. He then, in the upper room, for the next ten days after Christ’s ascension, related all that Christ had revealed unto him in his previous, private meeting with Messiah in John 21. The 12 Apostles received the anointing as well as the 120 on the Day of Pentecost, from where some of Israel received the same in Acts 2 and 3 as a record of some of the first believers outside of the upper room.
What Was Withheld???
The Fifth Seal was not opened unto the Messiah nor the Apostles and the remainder of those with them. Also, many details, due to that timing being unknown could not be related as well, as to the fine points behind the Sixth Seal, just when Israel would be brought back into God’s dealing directly removing their government of opposition and establishing proper government under the Sovereignty of God through Messiah. However, they knew the end or goal in view that the government of Messiah was to be established in Jerusalem by the overturning of the current government of the Scribes and Pharisees, even the Priesthood in league with Rome that denied Messiah. This was part of the Gospel of the Kingdom that went forth immediately after Pentecost and followed the pattern given by Jesus in
5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
A Close Look at Peter’s Message
Pentecost – Minor Harvest – Spring Holy Days
Feast of Tabernacles – Full Harvest – Fall Holy Days
The confusion has occurred in Christendom whereby they have believed a lie, the delusion sent by God, that they have the full truth when they do not. Remember, Israel had their false concepts of truth derived by their oral Torah traditions and views, superseding the actual truth of the Law and the Prophets; consequently, they did not perceive Jesus as Messiah. Now Paul shows this was ordained of God in Ephesians 2, that by their rejection or the cross, the Gentiles, as stated in Romans 11, could be grafted into the Olive Tree of the Faith of Abraham and the nation of Israel cut out in a state of blindness, UNTIL the Times of the Gentiles were completed. During this period, those of Israel, the faithful remnant as seen in the Apostles, joined with the Gentiles receiving Christ, were made one body by this rejection or the cross. That “one body” was called “the church” with Jesus Christ as its head, in absentia from Jerusalem, the throne as actual recognized king of Israel. It is here we will clarify The Gospel of the Kingdom versus The Gospel of Grace.
Prerequisite to Understanding the Difference
In order to understand and distinguish between The Gospel of the Kingdom and The Gospel of Grace, one must come from the Law and the Prophets into Daniel 9:24-27 and then look at the Ministry of Jesus and the Apostles, and THEN the special ministry of Paul, IN THAT ORDER. Otherwise, assumption of fulfillment of things NOT fulfilled will be made. This is the chief error of Christendom, causing them to overstep their authority in many ways, entering Daniel with guesses interpreted erroneously out of the scriptures, which within those very scriptures states they are sealed for only one to interpret. Michael of Daniel 10:21 is stated to be the only one holding with Daniel in the scriptures of truth, as well as the fact that the Book of Daniel was to remain sealed until a designated time, called “time, times and a half,” as stated in Daniel 12:4 and Daniel 12:7. The entry into Daniel with Christendom’s hobnailed boots of interpretation led to their conclusions being considered hard core truth erroneously, thus leading to direct trespass and robbery of the proper inheritance to Israel, thereby cutting Christendom out of the final blessing altogether, or having to go through much tribulation and plagues to find correction to full and proper truth. This is expressed in Zechariah 5 and Revelation 22 as those cut off by the truth (flying scroll / standard of revealed truth) or having their house entered by same and destroyed, stated also as cut out of the Book of Life or having the plagues written in the Book of Revelation added unto them. Therefore, we will take time to show how this confusion, delusion, and lie translated into facts on the ground bringing us to this current hour of finalization.
Again, the purpose is to bring all men guilty under the concept of self-determination - the doctrine that states men have freewill and are free moral agents and are not doing the will of God except by their choice. The last 6000 years is witness to the devastation this brings time and time again. Also revealed, we have to make a quick progression away from that concept, demanded NOW, in order to come to full truth and walk in the full blessing of revealed truth which is the only thing that will produce life, and perpetuate the full thought conveyed in “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Now whereas that has always been true, in that we have always followed the prewritten script of the Grand Playwright, it is by that very plan that this truth of God’s meticulous sovereignty was designed NOT to be made known as absolute truth until the end of the progression also designed to bring creation to this final goal. A remnant had this truth and walked by it and remained outside of the main stream of society to this day. Yet, let us now consider how it has come to this hour and that progression, in a short concise summary of all we have stated to this point in Sections I – X.
First, the Genesis Record – Prophecy within Itself
8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:
23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
Two Aspects of Messiah Not Just One
Messiah ben Joseph
First and THEN
Messiah ben Judah / David
Both Showing Rejection, a Period of Time in Rejection,
And Finally - Acceptance and Victory
One must start at the beginning, to “begin” to understand Messiah and what he was to offer, and thus bring, to the world for blessing. There are two aspects whereby this is to be accomplished. Although the blessings of Jacob, which contain the prophecies of these two messianic aspects, are delivered in the order of the sons of Leah – Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, the sons Zilpah and Bilhah – Dan, Gad, Asher, and Naphtali, and then finally the sons of Rachel – Joseph and Benjamin, the Messianic blessings / prophecies are to Judah first and Joseph second. However, the aspects, as they occurred in history, are Joseph first, around the very time of Jacob giving this blessing and prophetical projection and then Judah. This is very important to keep this order before us as we trace those fulfillments.
Messiah ben Joseph
“Son of” being the well-known meaning of “ben,” we see this manifested in Joseph as one rejected by his brethren and yet being positioned to save them at long last bringing full disclosure of all that was past, his dreams completed and fulfilled, his original name “Joseph” revealed after being made known unto them in judgment as “Zaphnathpaaneah.” It is this aspect which was historically seen completed BEFORE the literal lineage and aspect of Messiah ben Judah / David is completed for full blessing in gathering all the people to him.
Prophetically projected we find in the rejection of Jesus as Messiah by Israel, we have the same scenario as Joseph coming to rule over the Egyptians for their blessing, seen as Messiah coming to reign over the nations through the Gospel of Grace while Israel is in rejection. Later, when famine reaches Israel and they have no bread they come to the Egyptians to be fed. So, Israel has come to the Gentile world under Jesus as Messiah to receive what they can in the Zionist State relegated to them by UNGA Resolution 181 of 1947/48. As of the writing of this publication they have not had Messiah revealed unto them with all dreams and mysteries made known at a time when Israel is in dire need. The famine has not increased enough to require a full yielding to Joseph by all the brethren including the Patriarch Jacob. It is in honoring Jacob by Joseph and the brethren of Israel bringing him to Joseph that they are united at last. So, when Messiah requires that Israel honor the covenant between Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob with God, respecting God and His Sovereignty in that ancient link, calling forth same when they are defeated by famine of lack of understanding / lack of hearing the words of the Lord according to Amos 8:11 for their deliverance on their own terms, Messiah accepted by Israel will bring union and victory.
Do not Put the Cart before the Horse
It is national Israel’s rejection of Messiah whereby the world at large is brought to the knowledge of Messiah, but this is NOT the full picture and process. This is the horse that pulls the cart. It is the acceptance of Messiah by Israel that reveals the finished product and is indeed the proverbial cart. Now if this order is aborted, then we will have the aspect of rejection by Israel, and the nations brought to Messiah via that rejection, falsely placed as the finished product, thus in the position of the “cart.” This is abject error, cutting Israel out of the equation, which is the link back to the Promise and Faith of Abraham through the Patriarch Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham. Now, this is precisely the error of Preterism, which we have shown in previous sections is due to their willful ignorance of the Law and the Prophets. Dispensationalism, although much in error as well, does at least give Israel a place to return to Messiah within their concepts and views. Here Dispensationalists remain in the Promise but will have to be corrected in measure. Preterists, via assuming all is over and done within the first ministry of Messiah have cut themselves off from Messiah and his link to Israel and therefore cut themselves out of the final blessing altogether. Messiah rejected, then received by the nation of Israel, after bringing the Gentiles into the picture, is the formula in Joseph. Messiah reigning having put down all enemies, especially the carnal mind, spiritual death in Israel, the false understanding of self-destiny finally exposed and defeated as the last enemy, is the formula in Messiah ben Judah / David. However, in the rejection, period of time under rejection, and then acceptance by Israel, there is a distinction not seen in Messiah ben Joseph aspect, that is indeed in Messiah ben Judah / David. Within the Davidic aspect there a clear picture of “the church,” which we will now consider.
Yet, we must always understand that the precedent in the blessing and prophetical utterances of Jacob in Genesis 49 require both Messiah ben Joseph and Messiah ben Judah / David in order to have a complete picture, and proper placement of the full tenure of Messiah bringing the end in view of “God over all blessed forever.” In both of these aspects combined, we have the complete formula that ends in both aspects with the kingdom under God as being all and in all. This is pictured in Joseph purchasing the surrounding world for Pharaoh, and then David conquering all enemies to turn the kingdom over to Solomon. This is the full spectrum, the two aspects of Messiah that follow through in history, and also prophecy, to the finish of the Mystery of God exposing and removing the Mystery of Iniquity. Again, in summary of this thought, both aspects have the rejection and acceptance by Israel with an interim period under rejection with its purpose seen and realized by the finished product.
Following on to the Messiah ben David Aspect
Again, allowing for the reader’s own study and knowledge of this point we now make, . . . for brevity, we will not extensively quote text, only reference same, thus committing such to the reader’s purview of the recorded history of I and II Samuel, I and II Kings, and I and II Chronicles.
David Rejected – His Time in Rejection – His Followers
Finally, His Acceptance by ALL Israel
Saul was anointed and made king over Israel. He disobeyed numerous times whereby God instructed the Prophet Samuel that Saul was rejected as king by God and to anoint David as king to replace Saul. Saul received two anointings: one by Samuel and then all Israel in acceptance. The same was true of David with one major difference – there was a period of time where Saul still reigned, and the majority of Israel followed Saul and did not recognize and anoint David as king nationally, even after Samuel had anointed him king by God’s approval and instruction. It is here Preterism is completely defeated and shown for their rank error. Dispensationalism has this aspect correct, putting aside their events of the second coming as they interpret same.
THE CHURCH – WHAT IS IT?
In order to understand this properly we again must resort to Apostle Paul's source, . . . sole source, as he states in
Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying NONE OTHER THINGS than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
Without quoting at length, readings of Rom 1:1-2, Rom 15:4, Rom 16:25-27, II Tim 2:15, support this, realizing Matthew through Revelation were not available at the time Paul wrote.
As Stephen clarifies in reference to ancient times before the cross of Christ:
This is he (Moses), that was in the CHURCH in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sinai, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us (Israel):
The word in Greek “ecclesia” (Strong’s # G1577) means the “called out company.” Therefore, we can see that at the time of Moses, he said of Israel:
6 For thou art a holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:
8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
The point here is that Israel was the first church or people “called out” of all the other nations. We know that this was a physical people, marked out as to its males, by circumcision on the 8th day according to Leviticus 12:2-4, and laws of purification in child birth as to its females in Leviticus 12:1-8, having earlier gone as the entire family of 70 persons, to Egypt under the patriarchs Jacob and his son Joseph according to Genesis 46:1-28. They, later in 1495 BCE, came out as a whole people of nearly two million counting wives and children under Moses. This remained “Israel” the called-out ones, separated from mankind, “the nations,” at that time until the reign of David.
DAVID: THE MODEL FOR THE RULE
AND REIGN OF MESSIAH
Now this has probably got one’s attention that we would stop at David. Let us explain. No, . . . Israel did not cease to exist at David, but there is an important example here that everyone misses in the “David versus Saul equation.” This is strictly due to not studying thoroughly the Law and the Prophets when trying to properly understand the New Testament regarding the subject of “the church.”
Saul was the original anointed of God through Samuel and made king over Israel according to I Samuel 10:1 and recognized collectively by Israel as such in I Sam 11:14-15.
Later David, due to Saul’s disobedience, was anointed of God through Samuel in I Sam 16:12-15.
We bring forth this example to show - that from this point, there was a “church” or “called-out company” separated within and yet from Israel proper and the majority. This “church” or “called out company” served David, while the remainder served Saul. This “ecclesia / church” separated unto David, we find as David’s “four hundred men” in the cave of Adullam and described in I Sam 22:1-2.
Eventually, Judah in II Sam 2:4 and then all Israel in II Sam 5:3, anointed David as King in answer to God’s original anointing upon him given by Samuel in I Sam 16:12-15, eliminating by absorption the small “ecclesia / church / called out company” separated unto David that honored earlier the original anointing by God, on David over and above the former anointed one, Saul.
This smaller group of the outcasts of Israel and the oppressed that honored David, before all Israel anointed him, WAS NEVER DESIGNATED THE ISRAEL OF GOD OR SAID TO REPLACE ISRAEL PROPER AS A PEOPLE, just because they accepted David as “the anointed of God” and the remainder of Israel did not.
PLEASE READ THE LAST PARAGRAPH A NUMBER OF TIMES AND HAVE IT INDELIBLY ENGRAVED IN YOUR MIND.
Please keep this clear precedent in the Law and Prophets before us as we approach great David’s greater Son, and the claims of Jesus Christ to be King, God’s Anointed, when the nation of Israel rejected him.
As we understand clearly from John 11:45-53 and John 19:15, swayed by the leadership of the Priest and Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees, with various members of each sitting on the Jewish Sanhedrin, . . . national and majority Israel declared their league with Rome and Rome’s King or Emperor Caesar to be their only King, thereby rejecting God’s Sovereignty and His Anointed, David’s heir, Jesus.
Peter’s appeals, and the work of the Apostles up to the stoning of Stephen and afterward, did not produce a rescinding of that public declaration of allegiance to Caesar. Consequently, at that event and execution of Stephen, the slayers of Stephen left their coats with the young man Saul of Tarsus, while they hurled stones. This introduced Saul of Tarsus who was later converted in Acts 9. After the conversion and introduction of the Gentiles in Acts 10 through Apostle Peter, Saul, later known as “Paul,” soon became the dominant Apostle in the record of Acts in his ministry as the Apostle Paul to the Gentiles.
We see the Apostle Paul always stopped in every city and place to first try and recover, away from the rejection of Messiah Jesus, those Jews whom he dearly loved according to Romans 9-11. In Ephesians 2, Paul declared that, . . . committed unto him was the Gospel of Grace that due to the cross, the rejection of their rightful King Jesus, Paul was given the understanding to go and bring a collective company of the Jewish remnant that, like in the days of David, accepted God’s anointed, as well as those not of the lineage of Israel, Gentiles of the nations that came through the open door to them provided by Christ, due to his rejection by his own, bringing both into one body by the cross.
This one body was then, the called-out company, the ecclesia, the church, composed of Jews and Gentiles, the called-out or separated ones of Israel joined by Gentiles called-out or separated from the nations to take the name of the Lord.
THIS SPECIAL “ONE BODY” IS NEVER STATED TO REPLACE ISRAEL OR CALLED “ISRAEL” simply because they received God’s anointed King, when the remainder stayed with the Sanhedrin and their league with the Gentile power of Rome, with Caesar as THEIR chosen King.
This is Paul’s stand and argument against Gentile arrogance that was bordering on crossing the line with such claims as being the new Israel of God and replacing Israel as he rebukes such haughtiness in Romans 9-11, stating plainly the fact:
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, LEST YE SHOULD BE WISE IN YOUR OWN CONCEITS; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so, all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, there shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins."
Paul also in II Thessalonians 2 gives explicit warning for them not to think the Day of Christ was at hand, as he watched this movement to say the kingdom was here already as well as the resurrection was past, begin to overthrow the faith of some according to II Tim 2:18.
As we have emphasized, in direct rebuke of all Preterism as well as Dispensationalism, one stipulating the WHOLE 70th Week of Daniel 9:24-27 was fulfilled by Messiah already, and the other saying NONE of it was fulfilled by Messiah but is reserved for a future antichrist, . . . we object and establish the TRUTH resides in between or in the middle of these two ERRORS that abrogate, yay indeed abort, the Law and the Prophets.
THERE ARE TWO DISTINCT MINISTRIES OF MESSIAH SEPARATED BY THE QUALIFYING TIMING OF THE “TIMES / FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES.”
Those ministries are – one before the SECOND destroyer or overturning of the government of Jerusalem / Israel in 70 CE. This first ministry of Messiah was in 26-30 AD, and there will be another one manifested AFTER or consequent upon the THIRD destroyer or overturning of the government of Jerusalem / Israel, yet to transpire initiating Messiah’s final, full, and second coming, yielding judgment and resurrection of the dead by his presence manifested in his appearing.
Therefore, in conclusion of this point concerning rejection, interim period of time under rejection, and then acceptance, we have in the Messiah ben Judah / David aspect a clear picture of the company that hold to David or Jesus as Messiah awaiting his acceptance by ALL Israel. They are not Israel within themselves but are “the church” – a collective company called-out of Israel, later joined by the Gentiles, due to Israel rejecting Jesus, leaving Israel proper with the Sanhedrin and League with Rome. This remained as the “church” or “called out company” awaiting the second anointing, the anointing of ALL Israel as a nation, in respect of the first anointing already given by God, when they, at last, come as a nation, even as “one man,” and accept David / Jesus as King.
Let us now see the two ministries of Messiah from the Law of Moses that MUST be fulfilled and confirmed in Messiah, BEFORE God is made all and in all as an understood reality by His creation, bringing the world to come of which all the Prophets have spoken since the current world began.
Moving on to the Two Seasons of the Law of Moses
Spring – Leviticus 23:1-21 – Messiah Fulfills
Minor Harvest of Israel’s Remnant
The Nation of Israel Rejects Messiah
Leviticus 23:22 – Strangers / Gentiles
Receive Same Spring Harvest
Fall – Leviticus 23:23-44 Messiah Fulfills
Major or Final Harvest of All Israel
The Nation of Israel Receives Messiah
The Gentiles / Nations Receive Same Fall Harvest
By Coming Up to Jerusalem to Learn
Isaiah 2:1-4, Micah 4:1-7, Zechariah 14
This was covered extensively in the previous sections. Therefore, we will not be redundant here except to emphasize the difference between Pentecost, which was fulfilled in the spring ministry of 30 CE, while the Feast of Tabernacles was not.
Pentecost Was Before Full Atonement
Feast of Tabernacles Is After Full Atonement
We can perceive clearly from Leviticus 23 that the Feast of Tabernacles, called also the Feast of Succoth, and Feast of Booths is from the 15th of Tishrei, the seventh month, unto the 21st. Additionally, it had a 22nd day, a last day, great day of this feast. It was at this fall seasonal feast, the year before the cross, in fall of 29 CE Jesus attempted to fulfill this, and it failed. However, what we glean from this attempt is the following:
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Therefore, it is clear the Feast of Tabernacles was to convey the same gift or blessing as Pentecost.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE???
In the Book of Hebrews, Apostle Paul makes it very plain that the fulfillment of the Law under Messiah’s first ministry of 30 CE, accomplished Leviticus 23:1-22, as to those days and the meaning of Sabbath as well as all blood sacrifices by the more excellent sacrifice of Messiah with his own blood. This also opened the way to enter the Heavenly Holy of Holies where Messiah was seated. Of course, Paul’s resounding rebuke was that they were stopping short, not adhering to the fulfilled Law, and so were not entering to full understanding within the Heavenly Holy of Holies. Now this translated into just precisely where to draw the line as to the fulfillment of the Law of Leviticus 16:1-22, as well. This was also explained in earlier sections. That line was drawn at the sprinkling of the blood seven times before the high priest exited the Holy of Holies under the Law as depicted in Leviticus 16:20-22 to then place the sins of Israel upon the second goat and release it in the wilderness by a fit man doing away with sin for that year. This, Paul shows in Hebrews 9:28, would be done when Messiah appeared the second time “without sin” or sin done away, having appeared the first time in 26-30 CE, entering into the Heavenly Holies of Holies with blood atonement and opening the way by which one was to also enter to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
SO, . . . HEREIN IS THE DIFFERENCE:
The Feast of Tabernacles, conveying the same blessing of the Holy Spirit, is on the other side of blood atonement of Leviticus 16:1-19 AND is AFTER the Leviticus 16:20-22 doing away of the sin factor entirely. This is clear when we understand Leviticus 16 compared with Leviticus 23, and conclude properly that this full atonement, both blood offered in one goat slain, and sins done away via a live goat, occurred on the Day of Atonement, called in Hebrew “Yom Kippour,” the 10th day of the seventh month, Tishrei. The Feast of Tabernacles comes four days later on the 15th through the 21st days of Tishrei, with the Last Day the Great Day of the Feast being the 22nd day. When the fall Holy Days are fulfilled to Israel, on the other side of blood atonement with sin being removed as a factor, the Seven Times of the Gentiles being finished as well thus ushering in the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week left over from 30 CE to Israel bringing that fall finish to all Holy Days, THEN the blessing can go out to the world starting at Israel again and following to the nations for the SECOND TIME. This is the emphasis, as we will later consider, of
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the SECOND TIME to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
This SECOND TIME all mysteries will be made known, no parables, no false prophets or apostles muddling the message etc. Once again, both the rejection and then the reception of Messiah, whereby the rejection by Israel allowed the message to go from Pentecost to the Gentiles moderately or in a minor spring harvest, finished up by a fall major harvest in the reception by Israel, brings in the fullness of Messiah, leading to God being all and in all as pictured by the Solomon type or shadow of this greater fulfillment. Let us now follow from the Leviticus record under the Law to see the two aspects of Messiah from the Prophets: first Joel, and then Isaiah where it is most plainly noted.
The Rains and Harvests of Joel
Wheat Harvest and then the Grape or Vine Harvest
In order to move quickly here, believing the reader is firmly on board at this juncture in our presentation, we will leave only the references, so one can read and research further in their own Bibles should they need clarity as to the actual scripture and its statements. In summary, in Acts 2, Peter preaches only from Joel 2, and never preaches from Joel 3 but only alludes to it as the finish to God’s plan for Israel in Acts 3. Following this same pattern, James in James 5:7-8 states that they must wait and be patient for the latter rain having received the former early rain. The early rain precedes spring harvest, and the latter rain precedes fall harvest. Moving on to Revelation 14:14-20, one will see the two ministries again around Messiah and the harvests accordingly. The one occurs as the Wheat and Barley harvest and the other is the fall as the Grape or Vine harvest both relevant only when Messiah is present with Israel in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, as we have shown, whereby the harvests ensue with each Half of the 70th Week of Daniel 9:24-27. Let us move to Isaiah.
First Ministry “here a little” Rejected by Purpose
Final Ministry “there a little” Received after the Judgment
From Falsehood Prevailing and Then Truth Established
All Are Taught Properly
As with the above entries, for brevity we have left the link to Isaiah 28-29 which the reader can contemplate for themselves. We wish only to hit the highlights here emphasizing the prophetical spectrum of the two ministries of Messiah which must finish in the completed 70th Week of Daniel 9:24-27. 26-30 CE was the first ministry of 3 and ½ years and the accompanying Holy Days of the spring of 30 CE, and then 1984 – 1987 CE was the final ministry of 3 and ½ years and the accompanying Holy Days of the fall of 1987. It is only upon that being completed that Israel first and then the world or nations, will be ushered into the world to come where Daniel 9:24 will be dispensationally and forever after applicable.
The core verses on this division prophetically, seen long before Daniel ever existed and certainly his answer from Gabriel and then later Michael concerning this matter, are:
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
The key to understand here is that we have precept upon precept, line upon line as “here a little,” in 26-30 CE and then precept upon precept, line upon line as “there a little,” in 1984-1987. BOTH are designed within a total package to be rejected and misunderstood by Israel, and we can see now as well, all those that have attempted to delve into the sealed book of Daniel ahead of time, without being Michael of Daniel 10:21 having proper authority, equally have made wrong assumption, interpretations, etc. whereby all will have to drop those views entirely in order to listen and be corrected rightly. This is stated in
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
It is paramount to see that this instruction whereby one is turned to righteousness follows verses 1 and 2 where tribulation is the foundation for being in condition to be taught.
1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
Again, we understand that the resurrection is a spiritual awakening as a result of the sealed book being opened properly by proper authority. Now let us look further at Isaiah 28 on into 29 to see this same progression prophetically given long before any mention or consideration rendered in Daniel.
14 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
23 Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.
Therefore, we find the same thing here in Isaiah; the ministries of Messiah are completed as far as the here a little and there a little, and THEN judgment ensues sweeping away false understanding (lies) thought to be truth, along with a sense of false confidence based upon those pseudo-renderings. Death, the false understanding thought to be truth and life, and Hell, the existence based upon death, giving a false sense of confidence are both terminated. Now notice in Isaiah 28:23 on to the end of Isaiah 29 we have the voice of the Lord in instruction rightly bringing truth. Thus, as it states in Daniel 12:3, many are turned to righteousness, along with other direct parallels to Daniel 12:1-7.
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
22 Therefore thus saith the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale.
23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
Having given a full evaluation of Daniel 9 in previous Sections of this publication, we will not be redundant here in that regard. However, we did want to show this progression leading up to Daniel in the Prophets prior to Daniel, thus not making the answer to the man Daniel in his consternation as observed in Daniel 9 stand alone, but revealing how this concept and proper interpretation was also well indicated within the earlier scriptures of truth, where Daniel 9, properly rendered from that authority over the scriptures of truth, Michael of Daniel 10:21, is seen to only bring further clarity to what God has ordained since before the foundation of the world. Amen.
AGAIN: THE DIFFERENCE IN THE GOSPEL OF GRACE AND THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM
Now, with the above made clear, we can properly perceive WHY, the Holy Spirit given only in measure to the Apostles and early believers, after going to the Gentiles in Acts 10, also went into dormancy soon upon the false apostles’ message misrepresenting that element of the Gospel of Grace. The Gospel of the Kingdom was always based upon the expectation that Israel would receive her king like unto David, her prophet like unto Moses, and her Priest like unto Melchisedec. When they did not, the Gentiles were brought into the picture with full access offered to them. The message then stopped there, at blood atonement for sin, the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, with the hope of full resurrection to full enlightenment WHEN Christ returned to Israel confirming the remainder of the Law not confirmed in his first ministry. This would be done upon fulfilling “the consummation” or the final and Last Half of the 70th Week of Daniel remaining until Messiah was personally back with Israel.
For All Intent and Purposes But, . . . It Did Not Take
The Gospel of the Kingdom began under the 12 original Apostles in answer to the great commission, but that was done all in view of the eventual reception by Israel of the King Messiah. As we have shown God is the actual King, but Messiah is the Prince that represents that King and therefore to receive him is to receive the One that sent him. When that was rejected and proven to be on hold indefinitely due to the specific end of the Times of the Gentiles being unknown, as well as the contingent return of Messiah converting Israel being equally unknown, we were left with the interim condition and the consequent Gospel of Grace. This message was one of hope and NOT sight. The end in view was the hope and expectation of the Gospel of the Kingdom being declared again with Christ present and reigning no longer in absentia but present with Israel converting her and then moving out into the world THE SECOND TIME based upon that full package and not a rejected king. This progression from the Gospel of the Kingdom to the Gospel of Grace is clear in the following verses projected by Peter and then following on to the projections of Paul:
Acts 3:14-26 (Peter speaking in expectation of the conversion THEN of Israel to receive the kingdom under the proper king)
14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
16 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
I Thessalonians 1:5-10 (Paul speaking to the Jews and Gentiles combined awaiting the same thing Peter was expecting immediately IF, and we repeat, IF Israel repented nationally and received their Messiah)
5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost.
7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.
8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak anything.
9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
10 And to WAIT for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
The Hard and Fast Formula of the Gospel of Grace
What many forget in reading Paul is this constant and firm formula of his presentations. With the exception of Athens accenting to them the unknown God, with no apparent Jewish constituency, close scrutiny of Acts and all Paul states was always “Jew first and also the Greek.” Moreover, going to local Jews first, and then to Gentiles in the area, there was always a joint approach to the faithful in Judaism, joined by the Gentiles as the church or the called-out company, honoring Jesus as Messiah, both Jew and Gentiles constituting any assembly most anywhere in Paul’s ministry, with the clear pointing to, and affirmation of, HOPE in Christ’s sure return.
Enter the Fly in the Ointment
[Matt 13:36-43, Acts 20:16-31, I Cor 11 and 12, I Tim 3, I Time 4:1-4, II Peter 2, I and II John, Jude, Rev 12]
As predicted in Matthew 13:36-43, and the other verses above given, very shortly, entered the false Jewish element identified in Galatians, Colossians, Corinthians, and other places stemming from the place they originally raised their heads, in the Book of Acts and specifically chapter 15, declaring “except the Gentiles be circumcised and keep the Law of Moses, they can not be saved.” Now this element in the church of those accepting Jesus as Messiah originated by the faithful of Israel in the Apostles, and Gentiles under the Apostles origination as well, was soon corrupted away from the proper message, chiefly “to wait for the Son from heaven as given by Peter and Paul. From there we have the Gospel of Grace bringing the listeners to baptism in Jesus name, confession of his death, burial, and resurrection, and WAITING for his return, once the Times of the Gentiles was finished. This was the proper formula and the truth declared by Paul particularly, and is the Gospel of Grace formula. But within this formula, as added concepts by the false apostles speaking without being properly approved by the original Apostles or sent forth by them, were the different false teachings that arose and were established upon the profession, and from there it went to an attempt in 70 CE to establish the kingdom WITHOUT Messiah present. This was a collective messianic move again, that said the Day of Christ was then there. Paul spoke against this in II Thessalonians 2 just about a decade or less before this rebellion generated by Jews not claiming Jesus at all, amalgamated with Jews still under the Law and Temple ceremonies believing Jesus was the Messiah, and then a mongrelized company of both joined to Gentiles that was crushed when it purported to overthrow Rome in Palestine in claims of the Day of Messiah / Christ being already there. The move being so crushed, Jerusalem being sacked and destroyed, Israel greatly murdered, and then by 135 CE being fully dispersed into the nations, the claims of Gentiles of Christendom outside of the Holy Land prevailed upon the Gentiles around them and manifested in the Roman Catholic Church under Constantine, which divided in Protestantism and various so-called restoration moves to truth, which were not that at all. Thus, we have arrived at the current stage set again as it was when Jesus first ministered. We have a nation of Israel back in the land under the same league with Rome of ancient times, only as a separate nation granted charter to exist by the Revived Rome / UN until this hour of this publication. This has all been during the interim time of rejection and the Gospel of Grace that awaited the Son from heaven again in finality, but DID NOT have him present.
Removing the Fly and the Ointment It Corrupted
Once the full consummation of the 70th Week of Daniel 9, and all that accompanies it afterward, all the way through to the finish of the final judgment to remove all lies, the Mystery of Iniquity exposed, and the doctrine of the Man of Sin, of self-determination destroyed by the higher enlightenment given by Messiah converting the nation of Israel and establishing proper government, it is THEN we will have a return to the Gospel of the Kingdom. The King being present and honored, the Prophet like unto Moses, and Priest like Melchisedec teaching the people from Jerusalem, the Gospel of the Kingdom will be proven to be the only eternal gospel established upon the truth that God controls all things, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. Here, sin is done away, the Law of Moses fulfilled and ended in official administration, and the Faith of Abraham that prevailed 430 years before the Law of Moses will be fixed and understood by Israel in the Redemption back to the Garden of Eden replacing the understanding of Adam by the understanding of the Last Adam, the Second Man, the Lord from heaven. From there, as stated in Micah 4:1-7 the nations will come up and learn, world peace ensuing.
Yes, this was what was intended to go out, and did for a short time under the original Apostles, but when the Gentiles were added due to Israel’s rejection, the Gospel of Grace, interim, became the standard awaiting that return to the Gospel of the Kingdom in the return of the King, and the full resurrection to all truth without the lies, having all mysteries revealed in this Second declaration of the Gospel of the Kingdom as stated in Isaiah 11:10-12, John 5:28-29, Daniel 12:1-7, and Revelation 10:1-11. This will be the fulfillment of the final Exodus that eclipses the Exodus from Egypt by its greater excellence as stated in Jeremiah 23:1-8. We leave the reader to review those verses and study closely this Section XI again to have this made indelibly clear, thus removing false understanding of the so-called Gospel. The Everlasting Gospel now is the only Gospel removing the Gospel of Grace as it does the Law of Moses both fulfilled and now obsolete by the greater, all encompassing message delivered by Messiah for world deliverance from all religion, and certainly Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. These religions all indeed profess and claim Messiah present bringing the final resurrection is their termination and goal in view in all three faiths and pertinent writings of each, the Torah or Law and the Prophets, the New Testament, and the Quran respectively. Amen.
The Full Revelation Is Revealed in
“the space of about Half an Hour,”
Under the New Name Ordained for Full Redemption
Michael, the Great Prince, Michael Shane Sofer,
Michael Craig Clark
Knowing his name for redemption, he, in the eye-witness of the author, as given in Section X, fulfilled to the leadership of national Israel the Last and Remaining Half of the Covenant Confirmation 70th Week in spring 1984 – fall 1987. As we see in the quote of Daniel 9:24 above, THIS is the requirement: the confirmation by Messiah of the FULL week, not just half of it. Upon that being finished, the blessing would be given, with all that was kept in store awaiting that final, fall fulfillment in 1987. We see further that the Messiah is blest or considered the blessed one that comes to the 1335th day. So arriving on the 1260th day, he and the author left on that 1335th day, as we stated, unbeknown to us that we had been in the Holy Land for the 1290th and fulfilled the 1335th day of Daniel 12:11-12. FROM THAT TIME OR ON DECEMBER 4, BEGAN THE HALF HOUR OF SILENCE IN HEAVEN.
The Mystery Hidden, Once Revealed to Messiah, Is
The Blessing that Shortened the 2300 days to 1335 days.
Now picking back up with our presentation in the last Section X concerning Christ’s answer to his disciples that:
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
We see it is here that the rest of what God’s Plan entailed intervenes. At the 1335 days, when the Messiah left, seeing no repentance or understanding in the Holy Land, and Israel in particular, the 2300-day count of Daniel 8:13-14, was shortened with the “silence in heaven for about the space of half an hour.” We will later show that this is a 20-year period, the first day being December 4, 1987 through the last day of December 3, 2007 inclusive. All understanding that was accomplished in part in Messiah’s First Ministry was completed at this time to bring final blessing to the world. The Covenant qualified under the Law of Moses was finished in confirmation earlier with the end of Daniel’s 70th Week on September 18, 1987 and the ensuing fall Holy days of Leviticus 23:23-44. It awaits the completion of the judgment of Daniel 7:24-27 and other scriptures based upon those statements of Daniel 7, in order to bring that blessing publicly finalized for world manifestation in the Anointing of the Most Holy by Israel in a change of government under Messiah according to Ezekiel 21:24-27. This will be the final step that releases what Messiah has already, which is prepared in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, with details that have led through history to that message in this publication BABYLON HAS FALLEN.
The Time of Revelation to Messiah
Following that confirmation of the fall of 1987 which ended and fulfilled Daniel’s 70th Week in the Last Half called in Daniel 7:24-27, “time times and the dividing of time,” 75 days later at the 1335th day, in the author’s witness and presence, ensued the 20-year period from December 3, 1987, December 4, 1987 being the first full day, ending on December 3, 2007 inclusive, December 4, 2007 being the first day outside of 20 years. It was within this period of time that all mysteries to bring blessing and full redemption were revealed and finalized in Messiah. Therefore, from that time of the finish of the 20 years we have the blessing available in Messiah, December 4, 2007. As we will show, running parallel according to Daniel 7:24-27, after the “time times and the dividing of time,” which is 1260 days, and in particular after the 1335th day, December 3, 1987, began the “judgment shall sit,” which continued for the full 20 years and even intensified from December 4, 2007 forward, upon the Zionists, while the blessing remained and was completed in Messiah. This has brought us to the current hour, bringing Israel and the world to the last event of the Second Coming in public, where every eye shall see him, in the Seventh Trumpet. This is also called the “Last Trump” in I Corinthians 15:52, the “Trump of God” in I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11, and the “Great Trumpet” in Isaiah 27:13 to which Paul is referring in Corinthians and Thessalonians, according to Acts 26:22, which reveals all the mysteries of the Prophets according to Revelation 10:7 and Daniel 12:7 It is this world-shaking (earthquake such as never has been nor ever shall be) event that brings PROPERLY UNDERSTOOD resurrection, strictly an awakening to truth, and revelation of all mysteries then made known, whereupon world blessing can, indeed, be endowed. Prepared in this publication already, it will be released WITH AUHORITY AND POWER only upon Israel’s conversion establishing proper government under the Sovereignty of God, Israel’s sanctuary of strength finally cleansed, through rule under Messiah.
How Do We Arrive at Twenty Years
Interpreted from the Law and the Prophets,
In Coordination with Revelation 8:1,
“About the space of half an hour”???
Remember it says: “ABOUT the space of half an hour.” In other words, it is not EXACTLY half an hour, thus approaching that time but not a full half an hour. Let us return to the Law and Prophets for understanding in coordination with the Apostle to the Jews, Peter on this subject. In the Prophet Jeremiah’s record, the final days of tribulation upon Israel are called the “time of Jacob’s trouble,” in:
3 For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
4 And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
5 For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE, but he shall be saved out of it.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
9 But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
It is very important to see the setting for this “time of Jacob’s trouble,” as being the surrounding atmosphere of the Coming of David the King or Messiah and the establishment of world peace beginning with Israel. This is the process starting with the removal of the false kingdom of evil as stated in Daniel 7:24-27 and pouring out of judgment in Daniel 9:24-27 upon the desolater of the Promise of Abraham that has kept the blessing from coming to the Israel of God and all nations as stated in:
1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
The question bears answering:
Why call this the “TIME of Jacob’s trouble”? Why not just call it “Jacob’s trouble”? Again, another question is: What is Jacob’s trouble initially as to Jacob’s personal history? We know his name was changed to “Israel” later and, for the most part, that is the name of his collective descendants nationally in scripture with few exceptions that still use “Jacob,” but rarely.
Twenty Years Is the TIME of Jacob’s Trouble
Genesis 31:36-42 a summary description
36 And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me?
37 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.
38 This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.
39 That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night.
40 Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.
41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times.
42 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.
Jacob’s Trouble Initiates
“The Judgment Shall Sit,”
The Last End of the Indignation
On the 1335th day, the Blessed One departed the Holy Land. We understand as well that this was 75 days after the finish of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week which confirmed the Covenant upon which the Blessing of Daniel 9:24 was contingent. Therefore, we have two simultaneous events, one private with Messiah outside of the Holy Land, and one public with Israel within the Zionist State still in its league with Revived Rome / UN that stood against Messiah and rejected him again as we have shown.
Both Settings Running Parallel
In the private events with Messiah, we have that which was bringing the finish and completion of the withheld elements into understanding that were left vague or short in the First Ministry of Messiah from 26-30 CE, and in particular the understanding of the truth behind the Fifth Seal - the timing or “the when,” and the details behind the Sixth Seal – “the how.” As we will show soon, this introduces the proper placing and understanding of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues accordingly.
In the public arena with the Zionist State, we have the Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet and pouring out of the Fifth Plague which we will reveal, along with those public events that mark that out, in due time, that began just after the 1335th day, December 3, 1987 when Michael and the author left the Holy Land. Of course, this will FIRST bring a placing of the First Four Trumpets and Plagues as well, before we consider the Fifth in detail.
First Let Us Consider
The Private Side with Messiah
A Day with the Lord as to Time Reference with Us,
Understanding “the space of about half an hour.”
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
II Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
So, we see 1000 years, of 365 and ¼ days of 24 hours each, is to the Lord as a day and vice versa. Therefore, about one half hour with the Lord is 20 years when we combine that with Jeremiah 30:1-11, the “TIME of Jacob’s Trouble” and Genesis 31:36-42 record of that time of Jacob’s literal trouble and trial, as we quoted in length above. Arithmetically that calculates as follows:
There are 24 hours in a day or 48 half hours in a day. Therefore 1000 years divided by 48 half hours equals 20.8 years for each half hour or ‘about’ 20 years of time with mankind, even as there is about half an hour with God using the 1000 year / 1 day or 24 hours or 48 half hours ratio. 1000 years / 48 half hours = 20.8 years
Now using that reasoning privately, or standing alone, is interesting. Without it at all, we still conclude the “TIME of Jacob’s trouble” was exactly twenty years. With the time in the Seventh Seal being “ABOUT the space of half an hour,” approaching but not reaching a full half of an hour, we then join that reasoning, no longer standing alone, together with Jeremiah 30:1-11 and Genesis 31:36-42. Therefore, we have a twenty-year period with mankind being about the space of half an hour of silence in heaven, or with God, running from December 4, 1987 to and including all of December 3, 2007 for these 20 years, with December 4, 2007 being the first day outside of this time-period. Further down in this Section XI, we will show an additional proof this is the case.
The Significance of “Silence”
The simple truth here is that heaven, or the seat of understanding from God, was SILENT concerning the truth behind the Fifth Seal, the meticulous details of the Sixth, and other aspects in practical results on the ground as to Michael the Great Prince and the Second Coming in that name. Additionally, the placing of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues could not be precise or completely understood until this revelation was completed to Messiah. Those withheld facets of truth, about which there had been silence or no understanding, ARE revealed and made audible for hearing and seeing spiritually to Messiah within that space of about half an hour in heaven which is 20 years on earth.
Fall of 2007 Finished the Final Revelation to Messiah
As the Blessing Given to the Blessed One According to
Haggai 2:11-23, and on December 4, 2007 We Have
“From This Day Will I Bless You (Israel)”
That Blessing Being FULLY in Messiah.
Another Threefold Cord
In summary so far, first we have the arithmetic figuring for the 20 years from December 3, 1987, December 4, 1987 being the first day of those 20 years which ended on December 3, 2007, December 4, 2007 being the first day outside of those 20 years. Second, we have the fact in the Law and Prophets that Jacob’s literal trouble, upon which the Prophecy of Jeremiah 30 is based, is 20 years as seen in Genesis 31. Now is there a third witness to establish a threefold cord? The answer is ‘yes,’ and again, totally occurring in a manner that human intervention to try and affect it and make it so, would be impossible. All that can be done is to discover this AFTER the fact. Here it IS, from the Law and the Prophets:
11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:
16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labor of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
Again, here is a portion of scripture that upon the surface appears to be fulfilled right at the time it is given with Zerubbabel being the Messiah. However, the key point to keep in mind is the short phrase in the last verse: “In that day . . .” This is Prophecy applying to the end time and the final appearance and blessing under Messiah, Michael the Great Prince of Daniel 12:1-7.
When analyzing Haggai 2:11-23 in comparison between the Hebrew Bible Calendar and the Julian/Gregorian Calendar with which we are most familiar. December 4, 1987 to December 3, 2007 inclusive is exactly, twenty years of 24-hour days. In Haggai 2:11-23, the day of blessing, initiating perpetual blessing forward, is Kislev, the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar, and the 24th day. In looking at the Perpetual Calendar that compares the tracking of the Hebrew Calendar along with the Julian/Gregorian Calendar, we can see December 4, 2007, the first day outside of the 20 years, is Kislev 24 for that year. Here again we have a threefold cord of witness:
1. the 1000 years/48 half-hours being about a half hour with God or 20 years,
2. Jeremiah 30 and Genesis 31 specifying the TIME of Jacob’s Trouble as 20 years, FROM the end of December 3, 1987 the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12, the day Michael and the author left Holy Land, to the end of the day December 3, 2007,
3. Finally, the first day outside of that 20 years is prophesied to be Kislev 24 or the 9th month and the 24th day on the Hebrew Calendar for the year 2007, which IS December 4, 2007 on the Julian / Gregorian, or our current secular, calendar.
Beyond Human Manipulation or Fabrication
Rather, It Is Just an Observed Fact
Again, we can see there is nothing anyone could manipulate or fabricate to try and fulfill anything. Kislev 24, the 9th month and the 24th day, December 4, 2007 IS exactly the first day outside of the 20 years, which IS from December 4, 1987 to December 3, 2007 inclusive, which IS after December 3, 1987, which IS the 1335th day or 75 days from the 1260th day of September 18, 1987, which IS 42 months or 3 and ½ years from March 18, 1984, which IS 2520 years (7x360) from March 18, 537 BCE, the beginning of the 7 Times of the Gentiles.
All the Way to the Call of Abraham
As Detailed in the Following Links
At the End of This Written Summary
Moving back from Spring 537 BCE we come 70 years earlier to the Babylonian Captivity beginning in 607 BCE under the conquests of Nebuchadnezzar. Within the 70 years in the year 586 BCE, we have the First Overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27, the destruction of Jerusalem and the first Temple. Using two methods we can come to the laying of the foundation of the Temple by Solomon in 1016 BCE. The understanding of the Prophecy of Ezekiel 4:4-6 reveals that the iniquity of Israel and Judah is born by God for 430 years with the Temple and its rituals, and particularly once a year on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, of Leviticus 16. Those years are 430 years from the destruction of 586 BCE back to the beginning of the building of the Temple recorded in I Kings 6:1 and II Chronicles 3:1-2 in the spring of 1016 BCE. As a second record and witness to 430 years, they can be tallied by the sequential adding of the years of the reigns of strictly the Kings of Judah from Solomon to Zedekiah using the precedent of Genesis 49:10 which does not allow for the Kings of Israel after the division of Jeroboam from Rehoboam in I Kings 12. This year 1016 BCE is stated to be the 480th year since the Exodus which by count backwards is spring of 1495 BCE. When going another 430 years backwards according to Galatians 3:16-17, Exodus 12:40-41 and Genesis 12:1-10, where Abraham is considered the beginning of Israel’s tenure in Egypt as we made clear in Section II, we come to spring of 1925 BCE. The Law being given in the first year in the wilderness, the year of the Exodus, 1495 BCE with 1496 BCE being the 430th year since the Call of Abraham, brings us to the spring of 1925 BCE for the Call of Abraham. The following two links show first of all, both methods of counting from 586 BCE back to 1016 BCE which is the year of the laying of the foundation of the Temple. The second link shows the times from the Exodus back to the Call of Abraham. The third link shows the times from the Call of Abraham to Adam and Eve.
A Further Witness in the Law of Twenty Years
Before we move to the judgment aspect on Israel transpiring as Messiah receives full disclosure as above stated, we want to remind the reader of the importance of 20 years plus, or just past the completed 20th year as given in the Law and Prophets according to Exodus 38, Numbers 1; 8; 14; 26; 32, I Chronicles 23, II Chronicles 31, and finally Ezra 3. It is clear that men could not be used in service, at all until their 21st year was transpiring, 20 years being over and completed as counted from their birth. All those over 20 years being responsible to the blessing and cursing of the Law were not given to enter the land except Joshua and Caleb due to the failures revealed in Numbers 14. Within the 21st year from Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Canaan which began in 607 BCE brought the first complete destruction of Jerusalem and the first temple in 586 BCE. Therefore, it follows that Messiah being Prince, would by the Law and the Prophets, having finished the 70th Week of Daniel 9 in fall of 1987, receive final revelation within the following twenty years and be ready to be serve for redemption of Israel and the world, establishing that which was 430 years before the Covenant of God under the Law of Moses, the faith of Abraham, in the 21st year as we have explained meticulously above.
Meanwhile Back in the Holy Land,
As of December 3, 1987, “the Judgment Shall Sit”
Daniel 7:24-27, Daniel 11:40-45, Revelation 9
Like we stated before, Michael’s final words of note associated with our exit from the Holy Land were:
There will be no blessing, until this abomination is removed.
Therefore, just after Michael and the author left the Holy Land on the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12, December 3, 1987, and entered the 20 years of blessing unto Michael giving him what was not given in his First Ministry, the world was drawn to the Arab uprising which exploded in the news from the Zionist State and the Occupied Territories of the West Bank and Gaza. We remember that these territories according to Daniel 7:24-27 and Daniel 11:40-45 were, prior to 1967, parts of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt, three kings or countries subdued to make room for the intruder, the Little Horn. The Little Horn came up among the ten kings, Libya, Egypt, Saudi-Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, plucking up three inclusive of the Holy Mount. This was the Zionist State already there since 1948, but then, via military action in 1967, moving into Judea and Samaria, and in particular the area of Old Jerusalem and the Holy Mount. This is the area they call the “Temple Mount.” All of these together are the smaller “glorious land” in the greater Holy Land of Abraham, between the rivers of Euphrates and the Nile. From November 29, 1947 and their declaration of the Zionist State in May of 1948, they had moved on successfully, as we pointed out from Ezekiel 14:1-11, heralded by the Christian world in many quarters as being the Promised Return of the Israel of God in positive fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. They prospered in their takeover, without much trouble from the Arab inhabitants or from the world at large, concerning the Zionist victories in 1948 and again in 1967.
The Deception Begins to Fall Apart
In the Arab Intifada Uprising
This Is the Beginning of the “Judgment Shall Sit”
The Fifth Trumpet and Plague of Revelation 9 and 16
Well . . . What About
The First Four Trumpets and Plagues???
As the First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week affect the First and Last Half of Messiah’s Ministry, and what WAS and WAS NOT fulfilled in the First Ministry, and revelation of the Seven Seals, so also it affects the Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues. Basically, as far as TOTAL revelation, keying on the word “TOTAL,” the First Four Seals are all that was complete in the First Ministry’s giving of the Holy Spirit as we have stated earlier. So, we here state and will summarize the First Four Trumpets and Plagues quickly, equally associated with the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and Messiah’s First Ministry, so that we can move to the event we just introduced above in the Fifth Trumpet and Plague.
First Four Seals – Trumpets – Plagues
The First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week
First Ministry of Messiah
Last Three Seals – Trumpets – Plagues
The Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week
Second Ministry of Messiah
As one can certainly conclude, we are very clear that the First Four Seals, Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the time of Messiah fulfilling one Half or the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. The opening of the First Four Seals was effectuated on the Day of Pentecost for the 120 in the upper room of Acts 1-2. The First Four Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the judgment in the Second Overturning of 70 CE which was the result of the rejection of that First Messiah Ministry to national Israel after the 40-year ministry of the Apostles.
Remove Not, the Ancient Bible Land Marks
One must be very careful here not to fall into the trap of Preterism which attempts to make 70 CE a finality when it cannot be. The THIRD overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27 must end in blessing under he whose right it is to rule, and not obliteration of Jerusalem. 70 CE was but the SECOND overturning and was not only chiefly a judgment against the rejection of Christ after the 40-year ministry of the Apostles, but was surely an answer to Apostle Paul’s anathema on the whole conjecture starting in Acts 15 that moved on to declared the Day of Christ was at hand and the resurrection to enlightenment in its fullness had happened already. This blatant error was also judged and obliterated in 70 CE. It has reared its head once again in Partial Preterism (PP) and Full Preterism (FP) in these last days. PP states it was a coming in judgment against Israel to the point that it cut Israel off entirely with no national conversion or blessing to come in the return of Christ bringing resurrection. FP states a further atrocity that the entire second coming and resurrection, in addition to cutting Israel off permanently, occurred in 70 CE. In both doctrines, as in Dispensationalism, they erroneously interpret literal, physical, raised-dead-bodies etc. and much happening in ethereal realms, as actual physical locations called “heaven” and “hell” as their basis of needing salvation and associated peripherals which we will not go into at this time and have covered those errors accordingly already. But we here leave the deciding verse of the Prophets that shows both PP and FP absolutely in error as we gave in detail in Section II.
4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in the latter days.
Now, not only were sacrifices fulfilled and done away in the fulfillment of Christ, but additionally, they were removed by the destruction of 70 CE quite literally. Therefore, the days of Leviticus 26:18 extending from 537 BCE contain within them this timing when “Israel shall abide many days without . . . a sacrifice,” via the Temple being destroyed. However, notice “AFTERWARD shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in the latter days.” Preterism, both PP and FP, cut this out of their understanding, therefore cutting themselves and their doctrine out of the Word of God. It is hence, when Israel repents and receives the Son of David, Michael the Great Prince, all Preterists will go into great tribulation via not knowing where they are in the Bible or what is truth any longer. Their only hope will be to come up and learn of the Lord rightly according to Daniel 12:3 and Isaiah 29:9-24, the exact same way Israel will be judged and then corrected BEFORE or AHEAD of them in conversion to Messiah in full truth and resurrection enlightenment.
A Trumpet to the Believer Is a Plague to the Unbeliever
Removing Freewill and Self-Destiny in the Light
Of Sovereignty and TOTAL Control of God.
Profession versus Possession
We will be short here, in that this should be clear by now to the reader. The believer is NOT one in profession that in anyway still holds to self-determination and freewill, deciding one’s own destiny. That is an unbeliever; no matter if they can quote the whole Bible and are the greatest humanitarians in the world. They are dead to the proper foundation of truth and have none of the Seals opened unto them. Herein marks those that serve God and those that serve Him not. Yes . . . all serve God, as to fulfilling His Will and Purpose, but that is understood only by the believer. Those that serve God NOT, means those that are under a child’s view, dead, and unenlightened as to the foundation of the First Four Seals opened. God still has them only potentially able to believe, which belief is awakened in them by His Ordained Plan in His Ordained Time and can only come by the Voice of the Lord sounding to them making them aware of the Puppet Master aspect of God’s TOTAL control. This is the meaning of John 5:24-25. Short of that, they are still dead and unenlightened, even if they find interest in this publication. They are still off the foundation, dead, in darkness, and will only come to a point of hearing some new thing for their amusement in these pages. The believers and unbelievers see the same truth, but from different perspectives. One believes it as Resurrection Truth. The other refuses it as False Doctrine, or our “wrap on the Bible” and other such terminology that confirms the Message WAS NOT received.
The Trumpet and the Plague, Is a Fact
Perceived as a Positive or a Negative Respectively
As an example of this bold face title just rendered, let us consider Joshua and Israel’s conquest of Jericho. This is the FIRST introduction to Seven Trumpets as stated in the Law and the Prophets from the Book of Joshua, in Joshua 6. There the final or Seventh Trumpet revealed the complete purpose of the other Six. There was no understanding until that Seventh one sounded. What occurred was a Trumpet of victory for the Israelites. Although there is no mention of the word “plague” in Joshua, we will use it here for the purpose of making our point for the Book of Revelation. The Trumpet of victory for Israel was received as a Plague of destruction for the people of Jericho with the exception of Rahab and those with her. She received deliverance from the Seventh Plague destroying Jericho and was caught up in the positive side of that same event of the Seventh Trumpet. She is a type of the Gentiles that were called out of heathenism to see the truth in Messiah and are joined with Israel as the company coming out of Great Tribulation when that Seventh Trumpet sounds in the spiritual sense here in the end time. She was marked out with a scarlet cord hanging in the window so that she would not be killed with the rest of the inhabitants of Jericho, indicative of those under blood atonement in the end time awaiting the Seventh Trumpet. Those of Jericho had no understanding until it was too late and the Seventh Trumpet of a positive nature to Israel and Rahab was the Seventh Plague of a negative nature to Jericho.
As It Was Then, So It Is at the End Time
All Is Understood Only in the 7th Trumpet
The first Six Trumpets and Plagues of Revelation 8-9 and 16 are unrevealed and unknown as to their significance until the sounding of and the pouring out of the Seventh Trumpet and Plague respectively. This is stated plainly in
And the temple (This is the temple in heaven as is clear by other verses considered in Revelation) was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple (Entering the temple is to enter into the seat of understanding as to all God is doing or has done according to the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues contingent upon Daniel’s 70th Week being confirmed and consummated by Messiah as to both the First Half and the Last Half), till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
Part of that Sounding and Out Pouring is this publication making known the truth. The fullness arrives in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL as the cornerstone of foundation and capstone that finishes it as well. This is understood in reading this publication after the presentation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, and then reading THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL again once one has finished this publication. This is the effect to each individual. The events that accompany that revelation and understanding, whereby every man will be delivered eventually, are seen in Jerusalem and the Holy Land as the removal of the Zionist State in the coming, public manifestation, appearing and recognition of proper government in Messiah, again according to Ezekiel 21:24-27 and Daniel 12:1-7, as well as a multitude of other scriptures.
Anointing the Most Holy in Public Coronation
The Event Magnifying and Releasing Understanding
The 7th Trumpet and 7th Plague in Public Manifestation
As there has been the private revelation from God to Messiah, giving him the fullness of all that was partial in the First Ministry, so there will be also the public anointing when Israel answers to his authority. This is the scenario with David when he was anointed as King over all of Israel in II Samuel 5:1-3, which is the standard for Messiah as to public headship and rule in the Final End Time as well, as stated in Ezekiel 37:15-28.
II Samuel 5:1-3
1 Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spake, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh.
2 Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that led out and brought in Israel: and the Lord said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel.
3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them in Hebron before the Lord: and they anointed David king over Israel.
15 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Although, all knowledge, understanding, and wisdom required in Messiah is in him whereby THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is preached and broadcast, as well as this publication in great detail, it must be crowned by an event verifying its authentic nature, finalizing all that God has done up to this point. The event that publicly fulfills Daniel 9:24 COMPLETELY as to “anoint the Most Holy,” is when Israel accepts God’s Sovereignty over them again, thus cleansing the sanctuary of their strength as the Israel of God. This will be their national redemption that they missed in rejecting Messiah publicly April 3, 30 CE, Preparation Day, Nisan 14. It is accepting Michael the Great Prince in formal recognition that completes the package of Daniel 9:24 in all aspects, both as to Messiah receiving all that God has to give to humanity, and as to Messiah’s public acceptance by those ordained to give that recognition according to the blessing of the Patriarch Jacob to Judah in Genesis 49:10, inaugurating the Day of God in completion leading us all to the blessing of God as All and in all. The Law of Moses being fulfilled already by Messiah, this will NOT bring Israel back to a literal temple, sacrifices, the keeping of days, months, and years, etc. which were all under the Law. It will rather bring them and all mankind to the faith of Abraham, the Sovereignty of God in the two great commandments on the first set of stones at Mt. Sinai; hence this is the redemption of Israel and the world
Already Answered BUT Not Understood Until . . .
Within that which transpires, authority or public credence, in the eyes of the world and the people desiring answers, will be given to this website and it publications. Although this publication and THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL are indeed available, they will not be poured out or sounded clearly and distinctly with recognition until Israel accepts her Messiah and installs proper government over the Holy Land and Jerusalem and the Holy Mount in particular. There will be no firm and committed desire for answers until this event puts all mankind into great tribulation and then that consequent search for understanding. It is thus we say this IS the 7th Trumpet / Plague via giving understanding to all that is unintelligible prior to its final sounding and pouring out according to Revelation 15:8 given above. These publications as the Words of Life from Messiah, Michael the Great Prince, combined with his formal standing up in defense of Israel and the Covenant and blessing of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac, and specifically concerning the Holy / Temple Mount and its demise planned by Revived Rome of the United Nations, will bring great tribulation such as never was with the surprise coming – “Messiah here at last!”
Behold I Come as a Thief
The Day of the Lord has come according to all the Prophets to bring judgment and consequent blessing beginning at Jerusalem and extending to the remotest part of the world. Yet, prior to the time of full manifestation and public awareness, it has come as a thief, a secret coming, with that understanding in this website, not considered seriously at this time of its writing. Why? Again, redundantly, we say that no one can enter the understanding until the formal events within the FULL sounding and pouring out of the 7th Trumpet / Plague bring that attention and concern to be enlightened upon mankind, thus removing all that has gone before with a greater understanding.
As is quite logical and practical, the author of these pages is the only exception, with Bible training and understanding, to enter with Messiah prior to the full exposure. Otherwise, left on his own, the author as well could not enter into these truths until the time. In being called to serve with Messiah, even as Eliezer was the servant to Abraham to secure the bride, Rebekah, for Isaac, as recorded in Genesis 24, the author of this publication and webmaster of this website has been granted insight and privilege to so serve, and therefore has clear understanding ONLY upon being in this assistance position. This is also necessary under the stipulation of the Bible precedent that in the mouth of two or three witnesses - Messiah, his physical wife of over 40 years, and the author – the matter is established according to Deuteronomy 19:15 and II Corinthians 13:1.
A Davidic Parallel
Another point we make at this place in our presentation is to accent the similarity with David in what has been conveyed above. With David, there were the private dealings of God with him, whereby the “Spirit of the Lord came upon him” in a private anointing given by the Prophet Samuel, before he came to prominence and the anointing as formal King by all Israel. This is seen in the two scripture portions just given in the link commencing this paragraph. It is the same with Michael the Great Prince, as God has prepared him to rule by first giving him all that the Law and the Prophets can endow, even as Samuel anointed David. Afterward, we will see all Israel come and anoint him King, the King of God’s designation according to Deuteronomy 17:14-20.
It is interesting to note as well that neither David nor Solomon could be a complete fulfillment of Deuteronomy 17 in their literal lifetimes because they definitely had multiple wives and many horses, connoting wealth and large armies. Michael the Great Prince is the husband of one wife in a successful and very close marriage and relationship, of which the author is witness. He lives a very conservative life, with little monetary means fulfilling all requirements specified in Deuteronomy 17, being great David’s greater Son.
The Messiah and Literal Prince Established
In Government Is Still NOT the End in View
Following on further with the type and shadow of David as we look to the final kingdom, we know that he passed it on in peace to Solomon having put down all enemies to Israel at that time. As stated by Apostle Paul in
I Corinthians 15:24-25 and 28
24 Then cometh the end, when he (Messiah, the Son) shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
. . .
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
This is clear that Messiah, in doing and completing that for which he was sent and came, would bring about a condition where all men responded directly to God and not under a Messiah of flesh any longer. We must remember the progression to a literal King as it developed in Israel as depicted in the history of the Prophet Samuel:
I Samuel 8:6-8
6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.
7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
Notice that this is distinctly with regard to the condition since Israel came out from Egypt. The “king” concept in literal rule over Israel was under the Covenant of God with Israel under the Law of Moses represented in the Second Set of Commandments. It was not established under their relationship in the Covenant of God with their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The only King that appeared then was a theophany of God called the King of Peace or Salem, Melchisedec in Genesis 14, who had no descent nor length of days according to Apostle Paul in Hebrews 7. Therefore, the Law of Moses no longer being the Covenant to which Israel can be joined, in that it was fulfilled and terminated by Messiah in 1987 with the end and confirmation of the 70th Covenant Week of Daniel 9:24-27, Messiah, as government or King, can only be a temporary Prince to lead Israel to God, the only King, Eternal and Almighty, directly in the relationship that Abraham also had. From there, it will be extended to all mankind eventually, so that God will be all and in all as stated in Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, and Zechariah 14:9 as we have mentioned a number of times in this publication.
The clear point here is that we can see progression backwards to Abraham and that faith and relationship he had with God. We have the Law fulfilled and then a government established under the Prince, which gives Messiah the audience necessary to teach the people rightly as their Prophet, Priest, and King in intercession whereby they can be given direct access to God again. Therefore, it is redemption for Israel and mankind, thus restoring that which was lost. Moreover, it is resurrection bringing mankind to full understanding and spiritual life from under falsehoods, shortsighted-childlike concepts, and spiritual death.
Returning to 30 – 70 CE
The First Four Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the First Ministry of Messiah and the end of the witness thereto in the destruction of 70 CE as we stated.
What is the “Third” or “Third of Men”???
With the exception of the Fifth Trumpet and the Seventh Trumpet, we have in 1-4 and 6 the expression the “third” or “third of men.” If we move to Revelation 12, we find this is the third of the stars of heaven that are cast to the ground by the tail of the Dragon. We saw already in our explanation of Daniel 8, that this was those who fell or were cast to the ground from their original position in heaven or understanding and allegiance to the Covenant of God with Israel, once accepting the league with a foreign power, thus polluting the sanctuary of their strength.
In practical numbers, this is also all that is left once we remove the 10 Tribes, leaving part of Levi as Priests and Levites among the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin, which two tribes remained whole and intact, as well as a small remnant from the other tribes, such as we see identified in Anna in Luke 2 of the tribe of Asher. This group of basically Judah or Jews was then called Israel from that point as about one-third of the original Israel compared to the greater company previous to 721 BCE. Two-thirds are cut off, without identity, spiritually dead and lost in the nations surrounding the glorious land of Judea and Samaria, in the greater Holy Land taken over by Assyria in 721 BCE as we see in II Kings 17. Additionally, in Isaiah 19:24, we see remaining physical Israel of the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin with their few Levites are also the “third” with Egypt and Assyria, or the Arab peoples between the rivers Euphrates and Nile, which have intermarried over the centuries with the lost 10 tribes, or the 2/3s of the original physical Israel that were taken captive to the point of lost identity since 721 BCE, again according to II Kings 17.
Trumpets Are Positive in Respect of Removing
Within the details of the First Four Trumpets and Plagues of Revelation 8 in comparison with Revelation 16, we observe they are again quite ghastly in description and both negative in appearance. However, the Trumpet aspect, although as negative as the Plague in description, is STILL a positive, in the view of the believer, in the respect of the REMOVAL of the deception and that which rejected Messiah in 70 CE. We know the party under the Fifth Seal crying out “how long” and wanting vengeance, they being Jews not receiving Messiah due to the blindness of Leviticus 26:19 and Romans 11:25-27, although a positive company in one respect, also saw 70 CE as a negative. Short and to the point, only those in reception of the truth behind the First Four Seals saw the First Four Trumpets in the REMOVAL of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem as a positive. This was simply because they knew that it was the block to Israel receiving Messiah at that time and the power of deception used by the Scribes, Pharisees, and leadership of Israel, to foster and maintain their hold over the people in league with Rome for continued prosperity as we have analyzed in earlier Sections concerning the Herods and that league. When the judgment came, even as Christ had warned them to flee when they saw the armies compass Jerusalem in Luke 21, it was in the overall big picture to those with UNDERSTANDING, a positive. To all others, Jews under the Fifth Seal and all those in league with Rome as well, it was a negative and the First Four Plagues.
Again the “Gap”
As with Daniel between Daniel 11:35 and 36 there is an approximate 1900 years gap, between 70 CE, the First Four Trumpets and Plagues and fall 1987, the Fifth Trumpet and Plague. This is the gap between the judgment against Messiah’s rejection in his First Ministry and the judgment against Messiah’s rejection in his Second Ministry. We will now return to the verbatim use of the scripture with interpolated comments and paragraphs as was our custom in the exposition of Daniel. We will start with the First Four Trumpets and Plagues and move to the Fifth so that this gap is fully understood as we did when we considered Daniel 11:35 on to 36.
Revelation 8:2-5 Regarding Leviticus 16
National Israel Did Not Enter at All
They Saw No Fulfillment Whatsoever
However, it is very important that we consider the prelude to the Trumpets sounding, with regard to the Third of Men or strictly the physical people of Israel understood to be Jews. We must compare what it says in the Law and the Prophets and the atonement process of Leviticus 16 in particular. We remember that we have brought out how the First Ministry of Messiah only fulfilled the entrance into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of the sacrifice, which in the heavenly fulfillment gave the believer access to God directly. Here, only a few entered fully as we see well made clear by Apostle Paul’s letters and in particularly the Book of Hebrews. Messiah did not fulfill the coming out of the Holy of Holies doing away with sin altogether which Paul says in Hebrews 9:28 would happen when he appears the second time. This left the believers that did not come the full distance with Christ and the Apostles into the heavenly Holy of Holies, outside under blood atonement covering their still sinful condition, until the appearing of Messiah the second time.
The point we will see here in this prelude to the Trumpets to Israel is that national Israel did not even get as far as the atonement offered under Messiah. In summary, they did not see him the First Time!!! Let us show this in comparison between Leviticus 16 and this prelude in Revelation 8.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:
12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:
13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:
14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
Therefore we see here in this comparison that in the heavenly application of the understanding of the fulfillment of the Law in Messiah, the way into the Holy of Holies was not open to Israel, according to the blindness of Leviticus 26:19, “heaven as iron,” during the Times of the Gentiles which was well on since spring of 537 BCE. They, according to Romans 11:25-27 could not come to deliverance removing their sins until Messiah returned at the end of the “fullness of the Gentiles” which is the same thing as the “Times of the Gentiles” used by Jesus in Luke 21:24. This inability, to enter or understand Messiah’s Ministry and in particular even the First Ministry, is pictured as the censer full of prayers of ALL saints, which included Jews holding to the Covenant of God with Israel, but not understanding its fulfillment in Christ as Paul makes clear in Romans 9-11. Thus, the censer is cast to the ground in judgment and is NOT TAKEN, as we see in Leviticus 16 it WAS TAKEN, into the Holy of Holies as part of the atonement. A portion of the Jews DID receive Messiah and to them through the Apostles, all being Jewish, the First Ministry was given to the remnant, the 144,000, as we see marked out in Revelation 7. National Israel remained in blindness awaiting the end of the Times of the Gentiles, which was in spring of 1984 initiating the Appearing of Messiah the Second Time doing away with their sins at last. Israel’s atonement will be in the full removal of sin, not done under blood atonement entering into the Holy of Holies. In short, they will not come to Jesus as the Messiah and receive atonement for sin and be left as sinners saved under this provisional covering as Christians so have been. They will go from their current understanding under the Law directly into the removal of sin in the Scapegoat fulfillment within THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. This is the same for Christians, now that the Age of Grace and blood atonement are over. They must also come to the total removal of sin within the higher revelation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.
Emphasizing No Entry by Israel Nationally
Again, we emphasize as given in this metaphorical setting of Revelation 8:2-5 above, Israel nationally did not enter into the Ministry of Christ AT ALL and understood no entrance of Messiah into the Holy of Holies in heaven as stated by Paul. The atonement process was aborted for them as symbolized by the censer which WAS for entering into the Holy of Holies NOT being taken in but cast upon the earth in judgment.
Jew First and also the Greek,
Trumpets and Plagues Are unto Israel,
And Apply only to Gentiles Secondarily.
As we saw in Ezekiel 14:1-11, the prophecy was unto the elders or leadership of Israel but included any strangers that sojourned among them. Following suit, the First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week 26-30 CE and then 1984-1987 CE respectively are solely unto Israel both in the world abroad and in the Zionist State, which “state” is not characterized in the Bible as “Israel.” It is the “Little Horn” that subdues three kings of Daniel 7:24-27, it is also the “King of Fierce Countenance” of Daniel 8:23-25, as well as the Willful King of Daniel of 11:36-45, and finally the “Beast Out of the Earth” of Revelation 13, and the chief manipulator in the relationship of whoredom as the “Great Harlot” of Ezekiel 23 and Revelation 17 and 18. It is never referred to as “Israel,” in Daniel or Revelation when in unbelief and rejection of the Law and Prophets and Messiah. The Israel of God remains to be identified in the End Time reception of Messiah and establishment of THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM publicly in due time, whether or not they reside as Jews identified colloquially as such in the world or the Zionist State prior to the time of full disclosure and public manifestation.
Degree of Affectation
The level at which the stranger or Gentile professors in the Promise and Covenant of God with Israel, indeed laid hold of that belief, determines the degree in which they are affected by what occurs to Israel whether in acceptance and blessing or in rejection and judgment concerning Messiah, and the truth he brings. In other words, in taking the position that they have part through the First Ministry of Messiah, as given by the Apostle Paul, they also must receive all that Israel receives as a blessing or a curse. Being part of the contract, Gentile as Christians - the strangers of Ezekiel 14:1-11 sojourning with Israel - they partake of all this agreement entails per their commitment to that position.
Considering the First Four
Trumpets and Plagues Verbatim
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
2 And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
Understanding the First Trumpet / Plague
In reading Judges 9, or consulting again the Law and the Prophets, in order to properly place semiotics in the New Testament with a verified application of authority, we find that the “men of Israel” of Judges 9:55 are presented as “trees” in the earlier verses of Judges 9:9-16, as God honored the curse of Jotham upon those that had dealt treacherously with his father’s house and family in slaying them. In Jeremiah 11:1-17, we have a prophecy to Judah and Jerusalem where in verse 16, it says: “The Lord called thy name, a green olive tree, fair and of goodly fruit…” Genesis 37:6-8 shows the tribes of Israel as the brethren of Joseph bowing down to him in a dream as their sheaves bowing down to his sheaf. In that the sheaves were being bound together in the dream, its shows they were of the spring harvest of wheat or some similar grain. These are spring, grass grains or fruit of grasses, where the trees produce the fall and larger fruit. The meaning here is twofold. First of all, the trees and grass, being “green” and then burned up, is clearly 70 CE where the life and understanding they THOUGHT they had is destroyed, along with their link to God as they understand it in the destruction of the Temple / Holy Mount and Jerusalem. Moreover, from the spiritual side, the harvests of Leviticus 23, as seen in the spring grass, which produces grains such as wheat and barley, and the fall trees, which produce fruit, the associated fulfillment of these harvests in Messiah were never seen by Israel due to their rejection of Messiah. As with the men of Israel that understood Jotham’s curse and complaint, the removal of the one who deceived and killed unjustly, to the believer, was a Trumpet of victory.
As to the Plague aspect in Revelation 16:2, the destruction of 70 CE was purely on those that rejected Messiah and thus did not have the Holy Spirit and understanding thereby. They were marked in their forehead or hand, believing with their minds (forehead) or serving in their works (hand), in the primary instance by believing in self-determination, freewill, and choice which leads to secondarily supporting the Gentile, intrusive government under its appointed leaders out of Rome, such as the Herods. The Beast was Rome in rule over the Holy Land, the image unto the Beast was the Zionists in league with Rome to try and effectuate their concept of the Kingdom of God in the Holy Land, creating a deception to the Jews in dispersion and the world at large that they were the Israel of God in the prosperity experienced at that time, supposedly sanctioning Roman rule and that league with it. Again, the Beast is Rome at this time of the First Ministry of Christ. The image is the Zionist idolatrous league with Rome revered in the world by their control of the Temple Mount and its rituals, falsely portraying to the world that it is the, sanctioned by God, Israel of God. When it reached a breaking point under the ‘claims’ of Christianity joined with Judaism that the Day of Messiah / Christ was at hand, which Paul warned against in II Thessalonians 2, Rome turned upon it and crushed them in 70 CE. This was a grievous and noisome sore. It was “noisome” in that it is heralded throughout history as the noted destruction of 70 CE and is revealed as the Second Overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
Understanding the Second Trumpet / Plague
The great mountain is the only great mountain to the
Jewish people, that of the Holy / Temple Mount. Upon its destruction in 70 CE,
the news was spread abroad in the world of Jewry of this great loss. Keeping in
“isles of the Gentiles,” where “isles” or ‘islands’ are only so by being in the sea surrounded by water. Thus the term “the sea” is symbology for the world or nations abroad outside of the River Euphrates and the Nile that are generally Gentile in nature. So, we can perceive, in this Second Trumpet / Plague, as stated in the Trumpet aspect, the Jews in “the sea” or the nations abroad, in the dispersion or the diaspora that yearly came to Jerusalem and the Holy Mount there for the Feast Days of the spring and fall, as seen in Acts 2:5-11, were now cut off and slain by virtue of their link with God, as they understood same, being destroyed or severed. The successful commerce, indicative of the “ships,” generated by the Herods in the prosperous relationship into which Israel had been seduced by Rome, as we made clear in our earlier Sections, also ceased. All of this died and was cut off due to the rejection of Messiah finalized in the great mountain or religiously significant Holy Mount and Temple in Jerusalem being consumed, “cast into the sea,” by Titus of Roman and made as just another part of the vast Roman Empire with no practical or usable religious significance any longer. All that was perceived by Israel in a link with God as life, the blood, those things surrounding the Law and its ceremonies and feast days became then death. To those heeding the Word of Christ to flee Jerusalem when they saw the armies compass it according to Matthew 24 and Luke 21, this was a Trumpet and positive in that they saw his word fulfilled, and the deception, which stood opposed to the truth they tried to declare in the nations in harmony with Apostle Paul, removed in judgment.
To those in the nations and the dispersed Jews who believed that the Kingdom of God / the Day of Christ was being established in Jerusalem, in the collective move joined by many Christians, against Paul’s warning in II Thessalonians 2, this was a Plague of destruction upon their concepts and beliefs, killing them spiritually as to this claim and their link with Jerusalem and the Holy Mount, thus slaying them spiritually in that destruction and separation.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
Understanding the Third Trumpet / Plague
Wormwood is Messiah in rejection, abhorred by the leadership in Israel, making the relationship with Rome, their lifeline as they understood it according to John 11:45-53, bitter and turning it upon the Zionists destroying them by 70 CE. Also, this, like the trumpet and plague, positive and negative aspects respectively, the waters of life to the believer accepting Messiah were the same bitter waters to those rejecting him, exposing their league with Rome, and deception to the then known world, ending in 70 CE.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Understanding the Fourth Trumpet / Plague
Bringing Genesis 37:9-11 again to bear, the sun, moon, and stars darkened is the leadership and government of Israel removed literally in 70 CE in the Second Overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27 This is a trumpet of deliverance to the righteous in the removal of that which persecuted the believers as we see in the Book of Acts and brought deception to the world. This was so much so that many false apostles went out behind the Apostle Paul as we see in II Corinthians 11, where some pointed back to Jerusalem saying the Kingdom was at hand pulling many simple Christians into the deception, against his warning in II Thessalonians 2. As to the plague aspect to the unrighteous, the false government they created in their league with Rome, represented as THEIR sun or government to which they pledged allegiance in John 19:15 in rejection of Messiah, comes against them in reverse of the successful and prosperous way they had looked upon Israel, once Zionist Israel caused insurrection in the Holy Land. Rome, Israel’s false sun and government they took instead of Messiah, then scorched them with the heat of destruction, bringing to desolation all the success Rome and the league with the Zionists of that day had previously together in the deception to the nations until that Second Overturning of 70 CE. Men blasphemed God because of the plague which was from God. This shows no understanding of why they were wrong, and it left the seeds among those Jews in their descendants to return in 1948 - 1967 CE with the same deception and league with Revived Rome / UN in the end time, as prelude to the imminent Third Overturning.
The Clear Gap in the Trumpets
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, WHICH ARE YET TO SOUND!
However, There Is No Clear Gap in the Plagues.
The deception being removed in 70 CE, there is no relevant prophecy with respect to Israel, positive or negative, until the deception returns in the Holy Land in the same league with Revived Rome in 1948 CE as it had with the Old Roman Empire from 63 BCE until 70 CE. However, the generation that had understanding, those who saw all of this destruction and removal of 70 CE as a positive and in that respect as a trumpet, passed physically from the world with the last one of record being the Apostle John around 100 CE, soon after recording this revelation of Jesus Christ given unto him. As we have pointed out previously, those spiritually alive or those who had passed from death unto life in the First Resurrection were those who had the positive understanding. They, being now gone from the world as to their physical existence, left NO representation of the fullness of knowing the truth concealed behind the First Four Seals, or a positive view of events in 70 CE as in the First Four Trumpets; hence, we have the clear gap from the Fourth to the Fifth Trumpet. It is only in the end time under Messiah returned, as Michael the Great Prince that such understanding is given again in a positive fulfillment of prophecy. Until then there is NO GAP in the Plague / negative aspect, where men still blasphemed or rejected truth in their concept of self-determination, freewill, and deciding (or so they think) their own destiny. There is no understanding and only a false understanding from which they do not repent but continue to reject or blaspheme God with their Zionist, Machiavellian approach to the Covenant of God with Israel. They stayed in the nations waiting and manipulating by force and deceit, until we see their emergence beginning in the 1800’s unto its public manifestation in 1948 CE, bringing about and even more pronounced image to the beast, the Zionist State as its own entity or internationally recognized nation, yet still in dependence on Revived Rome as we had in the Zionists and Rome of the Old Roman Empire league.
We must remember any false positive, as it would appear ‘positive’ according to Ezekiel 14:1-11, is a deception and meant to sour in the long run to bring Israel to repentance and to where they will never depart again from their relationship with God honoring His Sovereignty. Therefore, the resurgence to come into the land out of time via the wrong method, without Messiah, is but a continuation of rejection of truth and a negative, remaining only as a Plague, made more vivid in reality from fall of 1987, the intifada, Arab uprising and forward from there. This is the Fifth Trumpet and Plague which we will address in Section XII.
This is the end of this Section XI, where we have brought everything and all comments clearly to the Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet and pouring out of the Fifth Plague just after Michael the Great Prince and the author left the Holy Land on December 3, 1987, the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12. We will go directly into the Fifth Trumpet and Plague in Section XII.
