          We have introduced a chart in Section V that compares Daniel 2, 7, 8 and 11, from the aspect of the Gentile Kingdoms or Empires that intruded into the Land of Abraham and therefore took control of Jerusalem in particular, with the broader borders being the rivers Nile and Euphrates. We reproduce that here for further and easy reference while continuing below it with our explanation. In Section V and VI, to help with elementary understanding in order to follow the chart, we also slowly constructed the chart adding another era in time, or area with a new Black Stripe, with each address of Israel’s history since the Babylonian Captivity which began in 607 BCE. We will abandon the building process, believing the reader has now learned how it is constructed and should be able to follow along. Therefore, we will use only the full chart, presented once in the beginning of each Section for the reader reference, as we continue now from 63 BCE and the invasion and conquest of Roman General Pompey forward in four repetitive presentations of the Roman Empire taking us from the reign of the Herods, into the time of Messiah’s First Ministry in 26-30 CE, and consummating in the time of end and Revived Rome / UN around Messiah’s Last or Final Ministry to Israel in 1984 – 1987 CE.

          Summarizing Section VI, we addressed the history of the entry of the Roman Empire in 63 BCE under Pompey and then Julius Caesar in 48-45 BCE, which of course was prophecy of the future to Daniel as recorded by him for Israel in the Book of Daniel, basically, as far as detail of the narrow brush, Daniel 11. This took us to the time of Messiah’s First Ministry of 26-30 CE and through the First Half fulfillment of the 70th Week of Daniel on to the 70 CE destruction of Jerusalem under Roman General Titus. We saw that according to Daniel 11:14-30 a-b, in repetition for a total of three entries in those verses, the era of 63 BCE to the Herod Dynasty, then to Messiah’s Ministry, and to the ministry of his Apostles was prophesied. A fourth entry, which we will soon consider concerning this time, runs from Daniel 11:30c through 35 inclusive.

 

Two Distinct Groups

 

First:  The Faithful Remnant

 

The main thing that appeared in that analysis was the division in the people of the Covenant with God, Israel, in two parties. One was the “upright ones” also known through the scriptures as the faithful remnant such as Daniel that stood firm with the Covenant of God, honoring God’s Sovereignty and Messiah as their physical Prince and Deliverer. They were there with the other group and often were persecuted by them for their faithfulness and not succumbing to the deception offered by the Gentile foreign power over the Holy Land, Rome at the time of Messiah’s First Ministry.

 

Second:  Transgressors of the Covenant - Zionists

 

The other group was the “robbers of thy (Daniel’s) people.” They were descendants of the Zionists from the time of THE CYRUS DECEPTION, returning again in later generations with a fresh crop to stand against Messiah and the Covenant by their improper methods, timings and Machiavellian tactics in violation of the Law and the Prophets, yet claiming they were dedicated to fulfilling them at the same time.  The difference in the time of Messiah’s First Coming in 26 CE, as opposed to the earlier time of Cyrus of Persia in 539 BCE was that they had evolved from persuading a Gentile King that he was the Messiah to deliver them, as we saw in Section IV. . . to a collective messiahship composed of the Sanhedrin, which was a composite of the Scribes, Pharisees, and the elite of the people ruling over the rest of the multitude in administration and dispensing of supposed blessing through the Temple Worship in Jerusalem. According to John 11:45-53 and John 19:15, they had sold out to Rome in a corrupt league with it, for the purpose of prosperity basically under the Herod Dynasty. It reached its peak with the rejection of Messiah publicly on April 3, Nissan 14, Wednesday, 30 CE turning him over to Rome to be crucified, declaring they had no king but Caesar. This is stated in prophecy of Daniel when we enter Daniel 8.

 

The Last and Fourth Restatement of the Era

From the Time of the Herod Dynasty

With More Details Concerning Messiah

Coordinating Daniel 11:30c-35 with Daniel 8

 

Beginning here in Section VII with Daniel 11:30c:

 

he (King of the North, not Seleucid, but rather Rome) shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant (seduce the Zionists and leaders of the Pharisees, as well as Sadducees in control of the Priesthood according to Act 4-5, into working with Rome for the prosperity of both sides, as seen in the Herod Dynasty).

 

31 And arms shall stand on his (Rome’s) part, and they (Zionist and Sanhedrin leadership) shall pollute the sanctuary of strength (publicly give allegiance to Rome and their league with it for dominance or rule over Jerusalem), and shall take away the daily sacrifice (crucify Messiah), and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate (stand firmly and publicly with Rome, giving allegiance to it against Messiah).

 

          The leaders of Israel, Chief Priests, and Scribes prevailed upon the majority of the people and Rome’s Pontius Pilate to crucify Messiah declaring they had no king but Caesar according to John 19:15. This ended Messiah’s public testimony, witness, and ministry from him personally to Israel at that time, awaiting his return in the Second Coming to completely fulfill ALL of Daniel’s 70th Week or the Last Half. As stated in Daniel 9:26-27 after 3 and ˝ years of the 70th Week, Messiah was cut off. Any further public witness to Israel was a forty-year period from spring of 30 CE until the destruction in 70 CE.

 

Messiah Must Be Physically Present

 

          This 40 years of witness was carried out by the Apostles without Messiah’s physical presence. The key to remember always, which those of Preterism miss, is that Messiah MUST BE PERSONALY AND PHYSICALLY PRESENT TO FULFILL THE LAST HALF OF THE COVENANT WEEK. IT WAS NOT FULFILLED BY HIS APOSTLES, NOR COMPLETED BY THE STONING OF STEPHEN IN ACTS 7 or by 70 CE destruction of Jerusalem.

 

32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he (Rome) corrupt by flatteries (Pilate / Rome solidifies and strengthens the league with the Zionists by doing their bidding in killing Messiah): but the people (faithful of the Covenant) that do know their God (that accepted Messiah) shall be strong, and do exploits (The believers in Messiah grow in numbers in Jerusalem and preach, thus spreading the word to surrounding areas as depicted in the Book of Acts).

 

33 And they that understand (Apostles of Christ) among the people shall instruct many (Believers that accepted the Apostles’ message): yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

 

          As recorded in the Book of Acts, the believers were followed everywhere by the religious Zionists in opposition to the Apostle’s message. They persecuted the believers as seen in Acts 7 with the stoning of Stephen. Many were put in jail as we see with Saul, before his conversion, bringing people from as far as Damascus, Syria back to Jerusalem for trial and punishment before the Sanhedrin. This leadership feared for their existence according to John 11:45-53 with respect to their league with Rome and the rule of the Temple and Jerusalem over the people afforded them by Rome. However, after 70 CE and down through history, expressed here as “many days,” the believers were persecuted and slain by Rome and derivative governments. They persecuted and executed not only Christians in the days of the Roman Coliseum, but many faithful Jews in later years with Christians holding to their measure of truth that would not allow them to bend or acquiesce to the claims of Rome, political or religious. This is vivid in history, as seen in the Spanish Inquisition under Torquemada, agent of Prince Phillip and Queen Isabella of Spain. Many were tortured and killed unless they succumbed to a forced conversion to the religion of Rome.

 

34 Now when they (faithful of the Covenant eventually called Christians) shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help (due to Apostle Paul’s ministry to the Gentiles): but many shall cleave to them with flatteries (Zionists in league with Rome to rule and lead, as previously identified, were so much the case that upon the insurrection against Rome, many Christians had joined the Zionist move for independence in failure to heed Paul’s warning in II Thessalonians 2 that the Day of the Lord and Messiah’s victory of the final days WAS NOT AT HAND).

 

35 And some of them of understanding (Chiefly the original Apostles were martyred) shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white (show that they had held true and were not deceived into the Zionist move), even to (with respect to) the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

 

          Like Daniel himself, relating this message and answer of Michael to him unto Israel via his record in the Book of Daniel, those that stood the test, even to the loss of their physical life, would stand in their lot finally at the end of all these things. They would be justified to stand as they did, when the final analysis is rendered from “he whose right it is” at “the appointed time.”

 

Christianity of Today:

A Form of Godliness, Denying the Power thereof

 

          Since the death of the Apostles and the early Christians as well, the majority of the movement of Christianity, other than the outward trappings that remained, became a form of godliness, but denied the power thereof. This is well represented in the Apostle Paul’s summary of the religious body of the last days in II Timothy 3:1-13. It became the same as Judaism before it, believing no longer in the Sovereignty of God, but rather in freewill, the concept of God only knowing what men do and allowing for such. They denied the direct control of the Sovereignty of God. Leaving the Law and the Prophets behind or in a secondary category, they began to privately interpret the New Testament. Many spurious doctrines void of support from the Old Testament, some of which we have handled in our earlier Sections, have been perpetrated upon the people by the clergy. By the end time, basically from the standpoint of literalism, denying the spiritual truth found when one properly adheres to the Law and the Prophets in considering the New Testament, we have had fables, fantasy and fiction replacing truth and meaning. No true manifestation in purity of the original understanding of the Apostles being present, there is no mention of the faithful to Messiah from this point in Daniel’s narrative until Michael stands up in Daniel 12:1-4.

 

Willful King of Daniel 11:36-45

Little Horn Subduing Three of Ten of Daniel 7:24-27

King of Fierce Countenance of Daniel 8:23-25

All Are One and the Same,

The Zionist State Empowered by Revived Rome / UN

 

          For the rest of Daniel 11 beginning with verse 36, we have corresponding verses in Daniel 7 and Daniel 8. Daniel 11:36-39 gives a very clear description of the Willful King of the modern Zionist movement and mindset, supported by the modern Christian world in order to return to the Holy Land between the rivers Nile and Euphrates in 1947-48. This begins in verse 36 and runs to its demise in verse 45. It is based upon the same trust in the god that the fathers of the faithful, such as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, did NOT know. In its simplest form, this false god is as we have stated all through this publication: A league of the leadership over the people with a foreign power to try effect the Promise of Redemption and the Kingdom of God through their Machiavellian efforts. This power today is the Revived Roman Empire of the United Nations control over the 10 Arab kings or countries in the Holy Land as seen in the image of Daniel 2 with the Iron of Rome and the Clay of the Patriarchal Arab kings in the feet and toes. Its chief constituent, the USA, prime supporter of the Zionist State, embodies the same Roman two-party democracy headed up by an emperor, only in modern times as an elected president, as we had in the Old Roman Empire, which is emulated and imitated by the Zionist State. As stated here in Daniel 11, it serves and operates by the god of force and deceit to accomplish THEIR WILL, as they perceive it, contrary to the Will of God. It is, of course, the same league of Zionists riding atop the Gentile world revived from the death of 70 CE and brought back into the Holy Land, by 1948 CE in order to try and effectuate the Promise and the Covenant of God with Israel by methods, timings, and standards opposed to the Law and the Prophets and the proper representation of the Covenant of God with Israel under Messiah. It deceives the world to aid in its formation and to support its actions until its demise, where none will help as stated in Daniel 11:45, as Michael stands up with the truth and message of deliverance that brings enlightenment in The Resurrection of Daniel 12.

 

          Here now in Section VII, we will return to Daniel 11:31 at the time of Messiah’s First Ministry for a coordinated look at Daniel 8:13-14 to establish some key factors for making later connections to Daniel 12. After the exposition and connection between Daniel 8:13-14 and Daniel 11:31, we will close this Section VII, and enter a large parenthesis in Section VIII addressing Gentile access to the Covenant with Israel according to Leviticus 23:22 and Ephesians 2:11-22 in the ministry of the Apostle Paul. In Section IX, we will return to solely Israel with our sights upon the comparison of Daniel 11:36-45, Daniel 7:24-27, and Daniel 8:23-27, on the way to Daniel 12 and the fulfillment of the Last Half of the Covenant Week whereby the deliverance Michael brings can be declared.

 

Pollution of the Sanctuary

Countdown to the Cleansing

 Daniel 8:9-14

 

We will be redundant at this juncture repeating some of what we have said before in Section VI that is necessary for flow and continuing with clarity. Moving on to Daniel 8, the Roman Empire entered the picture in 63 BCE.

 

Daniel 8:8-9

8 Therefore the he goat (Alexander the Great and the Grecian Empire) waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones (Four Generals split up the Empire after Alexander’s death in 323 BCE) toward the four winds of heaven.

 

As we have brought out twice before in other Sections, the Four Generals passed their kingdoms on to later generations, where the two of interest were the Seleucid, King of the North based out Syria and Ptolemaic, King of the South, based out of Egypt, or those in control of the Holy Land between the rivers Nile and Euphrates.

 

9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

 

“Out of one of them,” the regions and descendants of one of the Four Generals, specifically one to the north and west, outside of the Holy Land, eventually “came forth.” This was the rise of the Roman Empire, which grew in strength toward the south, where it eventually conquered Egypt by 30 BCE, and consumed most of the Middle East. It invaded the “pleasant land” or Holy Land, Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem under Roman, General Pompey in 63 BCE which was taken over entirely by the time of Julius Caesar in 48 to 45 BCE, when he defeated Pompey in a Roman clash for power.

 

10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

 

Zionism Rears Its Head Once Again

Usurping the Place of Messiah

Forming the League with the Nation of Rome

 

          As stated above in Daniel 8:10, the Roman Empire was able to extend its influence and greatness, “even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some the host and of the stars to the ground and stamped upon them.”  Here in Daniel 8 we have the intervention of a party outside of the Holy Land by conquest. Added to the literal conquest, we have the ability of this Roman party to bring certain factions, or “some” of the stars, or some of Israel, according to Genesis 37:9-11 as we saw in Section VI, under its influence. The ready ground of operation around the loose interpretation of the Law of Moses, superseded by the eagerness of the Zionists to return at any cost at the time of Daniel in the Cyrus Messiah move of 539-537 BCE, had produced by the time of Rome’s takeover, this same crop. They were willing to rule in a coalition method in league with Rome, where the end in view justifies, in their minds, any means to that end. It is called “Machiavellianism” and is the principal characteristic of the Zionist faction, at any era of time in the general population of Israel. It failed miserably in 537 BCE and brought the Seven Times of the Gentiles firmly upon Israel.

 

Now Let Us Consider What Is Even Worse

 

          So here from 63 BCE and reaching its full strength by the time of Messiah’s public ministry in 26 CE, some of the stars are cast to the ground and stamped upon. They leave their first estate, in heaven, or in proper understanding and allegiance to The Covenant where Daniel and the faithful remnant stood firm and unmovable. They are cast down and subservient to the Roman power by the way of forming a corrupt league with it for rule and influential sway over the people and the Temple Worship in Jerusalem. It even went as far as Rome appointing the High Priest Caiaphas we see mentioned by name in John 11.  We find the result in verse 11 of Daniel 8.

 

11 Yea, he (Rome) magnified himself even to the prince of the host (Messiah, Michael the Great Prince of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-4, Jesus Christ of John 5:24-29), and by him (Rome, in particular Pontius Pilot, swayed by the Zionists that considered Messiah a threat according to John 11:45-53) the daily sacrifice (Messiah is the fulfillment of sacrifice and offering according to I Samuel 15:22, Psalms 40:6-8, and Hebrews 10:1-10) was taken away (Messiah was rejected by Israel in 30 CE), and the place of the sanctuary (Jerusalem and the Temple in particular) was cast down (Rome again under Titus of Rome in 70 CE destroyed Jerusalem and obliterated  the Temple).

 

The Important Spiritual Counterpart

 

          Although this was quite literal concerning the “place” of the sanctuary, in that it was physically cast down in the destruction of 70 CE, we must keep in mind the spiritual counterpart. The Sanctuary of Israel is their Covenant relationship with their Creator, respecting His Sovereignty and rule over them. By this league with and dependence on a foreign power, the Sanctuary of their strength is polluted. This was the state of the Zionist mindset. However, it became hard facts of the ground when public and official action was taken in rejection of the Messiah for the league with the foreign power of Rome specifically on April 3, Nissan 14, 30 CE, Preparation Day, according to John 19:15. This was the very time they were to recognize Messiah, he whom God had sent within the Covenant Confirmation 70th Week with the deliverance offered in Daniel 9:24.

 

          Daniel 8:12

12 And a host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression (The Zionists are this host or portion of Israel that were given to Rome against Messiah. This was because they left The Covenant and violated the Law of Moses, thus “by reason of transgression,” they formed and went head-long into this abomination and league with Rome), and it (The league with Rome or the host given to Rome and Rome together) cast down the truth to the ground (Rejected Messiah, for Caesar as king according to John 19:15); and it practiced, and prospered.

 

From the time of the Herod Dynasty established first in Antipater I in 45 BCE, and primarily, as the details of Daniel 11 show, Herod the Great, through the time of the birth of Messiah and beyond in Herod’s descendants, this league between Rome and the religious leadership of Israel claiming collective, messianic ability to rule the people, prospered and practiced.

 

Specifically, the Point WHEN the Sanctuary Was

Polluted Thus Requiring Eventual Cleansing

 

The redundancy above from previous Sections, where we have rendered an explanation verbatim for a few paragraphs, has been intrinsically necessary to make sure we make the connection in the reader’s comprehension. This is because it is extremely critical to understand the public, official, and specific point where and when the Sanctuary was defiled, and therefore in need of cleansing, so that we can start to understand the TIMING for that cleansing and later WHAT constitutes that cleansing. Verse 11 and 12 of Daniel 8, commented upon above, when compared with Daniel 11:31 below, will give us that clear answer. Starting with Daniel 11:30c:

 

he (Rome) shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant (seduce the Zionists and leaders of the people, Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes, and Priests, hereafter referred to as simply “religious leadership,” into working with Rome for the prosperity of both sides, as seen in the Herod Dynasty).

 

31 And arms shall stand on his (Rome’s) part, and they (religious leadership of Israel) shall POLLUTE THE SANCTUARY OF STRENGTH, and shall TAKE AWAY THE DAILY SACRIFICE (reject Messiah and have him killed by Rome), and they shall PLACE THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKETH DESOLATE (Swear allegiance officially and publicly to Rome / Caesar as their King, honoring fully the corrupt league they already had with Rome that had been so successful, thus rejecting Messiah and God’s Sovereignty in the proper government over them according to John 11:45-53 and John 19:15)

 

          The religious leadership of Israel prevailed upon the majority of the people and Rome’s Pontius Pilate to crucify Messiah declaring they had no king but Caesar according to John 19:15. This ended Messiah’s public testimony, witness and ministry from him personally to Israel at that time awaiting his physical return in the Second Coming. He was not seen by Israel general, and only his Apostles ministered after this time. He was seen only by the faithful or a remnant from Israel, as stated by Apostle Paul’s testimony in I Corinthians 15:1-8.

 

Crystal Clear Guilt

Beyond Any Reasonable Doubt

The Sure Marker as to When

The Sanctuary Was Polluted

         

          On April 3, Wednesday, Nissan 14, 30 CE, the Sanctuary was publicly and officially polluted, truth was cast to the ground, and the abomination that makes desolate, or allegiance to Rome, which did indeed later make them desolate in 70 CE according to Matthew 24:14-15 and Luke 21:20-21, was placed. We repeat that as a matter of the Zionist mindset and allegiance to Rome, the Sanctuary was already spiritually polluted. This, thus led to that official act of pollution, the public rejection of Messiah, the Messenger of THAT Covenant, in preference for Caesar as stated in John 19:15. Formally and officially they rejected the Daily Sacrifice – the Messiah – the Sovereignty of God in rule over them and placed the Abomination –  the league with a foreign power – the product of self-determination and trust in the physical entity that ruled the known world, in this case Rome.

 

          As we will show later in 1948 CE, nothing has changed, and specifically during the critical time period of 1984-1987 when the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week has arrived. Israel is still dependent upon this same abomination of a league with a foreign power ruling over them, as the product of self-determination and trust in the physical entity that rules the known world in the Revived Rome of the United Nations with its chief constituent the USA. It is this scenario that gives enlightenment to one of the most popular and most misunderstood texts of Revelation 13:11-18 which we analyze in detail in the links at the end of this publication on Daniel in Section XIII. There we see the Zionist State, the Beast Out of the Earth, under the authority and therefore empowered by the Beast Out of the Sea, the Revived Roman Empire – the United Nations in control of the 10 Arab Kings (Ten Horns) of the Middle East. Now let us look at Daniel 8:13-14 closely to determine the factors needed for the Sanctuary to be cleansed.

 

Qualification for the Cleansing

 

          The simple answer is that if Messiah was present publicly with Israel dealing with its leadership in fulfillment of the Holy Days in the spring of 30 CE, within the Covenant 70th Week as Promised by Daniel 9:24-27, and the Sanctuary was polluted by their rejection of him, in preference for the abomination of their league with a foreign power, then Messiah MUST be present again to remove the pollution. He must be accepted by that leadership and national Israel, in preference over dependence on a foreign power, thereby putting Israel back under the Sovereignty of God and trust in Him bringing Israel’s Redemption.

 

Within What Time Span Must Israel Respond?

 

          As of April 3, Nissan 14, 30 CE the nation of Israel and its leadership rejected him, and he was not seen by them again. He must be present to deal with them again. We have seen in earlier Sections within that time to deal with Israel again in the Last Half of the 70th Covenant Week when Messiah is present and after the Times of the Gentiles are over, there MUST be fulfillment of those parts of the Law of Moses NOT fulfilled personally by Messiah in his First Ministry. Therefore, he will fulfill the fall Holy Days at the end of the Last Half of the 70th Week as he fulfilled the spring Holy Days at the end of the First Half of the 70th Week. Daniel 9:27 gives the Time Span as “And he (Messiah) shall confirm the Covenant FOR ONE WEEK.”  

 

The Only Covenant Causing Daniel’s Concern

 

          The ONLY Covenant about which Daniel was concerned was the Covenant of God with Abraham through Isaac and the physical people of Israel. This was a two-part Covenant: 1) In the broad scope, it was to produce Messiah and thus bring blessing to all nations according to Genesis 12:1-3. 2) Narrowly drawn it was a land Covenant with Ishmael and Isaac and the rest of Abraham’s physical seed to inherit the Land between the rivers of the Nile and Euphrates or everywhere the sole of their foot was placed.  The problem that has existed since that promise, and particularly with the physical house of Israel, is that they want part two – the Land, without part one, the Messiah. However, it is a package deal for Israel unlike the unconditional gift of the land to the others.

 

Package Deal: Sovereignty of God – Messiah

Proper Government - Blessing

 

          When Israel went under a further qualification of that original promise in accepting the Law of Moses over them as we have given in Section III, they were then obligated to that qualifying factor in order to receive the blessing in parts one and two. Again, for Israel it is a package deal; no Messiah – no right to be in the Holy Land and particularly no right to be under their own autonomous government such as a democracy. Deuteronomy 17:14-20 is very clear as to what government they must have as a Monarchy. The model for this King is given in the Testimony to that particular Law in Hosea 3:4-5, Jeremiah 23:6-8, and Ezekiel 37:19-28. These scriptures all state that the King of God’s qualifications and designation is mandatory factor for any Exodus from the nations back to the Holy Land to establish the Israel of God in truth. As we have pointed out earlier, they were in disobedience to the Law of Moses and therefore put under the judgment of 70 Years Babylonian Captivity as stated in Leviticus 26:14-17, Jeremiah 25:1-11, and Jeremiah 29: 10-14. Due to no proper condition of heart to understand truth according to Daniel 9:13 they were judged Seven Times more according to Leviticus 26:18-39, that long period of judgment is that which we have been considering now in these Sections since Section IV.

 

          Therefore, in order to be relieved of the judgment and receive the land portion of the Covenant, Israel must establish government according to the Law and the Prophets that is ordained for this region of the world. The time for this ruler and Promised Seed, the Messiah to be present and available for their deliverance is within and secluded to the 70th and Final Week of the Prophecy of 70 Weeks.  AT THIS TIME, IF ISRAEL WAS DESTINED BY GOD’S PREORDAINED AND PREWRITTEN WILL TO ENTER INTO, AND BENEFIT NATIONALLY FROM, THE FULFILLMENT OF THE COVENANT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH MESSIAH UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES THEY MUST RECEIVE MESSIAH DURING THIS TIME, THE FALL HOLY DAYS AT THE END OF THE LAST HALF OF THE 70TH WEEK.

 

Timing Is Everything

 

           Messiah was present fulfilling the First Half of the Covenant 70th Week from 26 CE to his cutting off in 30 CE leaving 3 and ˝ years to be finished in the Last Half of the Covenant Week.  That Last Half starts when the Seven Times of the Gentiles are completed in spring of 1984. Therefore, the start of the countdown for the Cleansing of 2300 days would start when Messiah is present and the Last Half of the 70th Week begins. In other words, it would start simultaneously with the beginning of the Last Half or the start of the Final 3 and ˝ years of Daniel’s 70th Week that were leftover when the Sanctuary was polluted, and Messiah was killed by the leadership of Israel.

 

A Formula for Understanding

 

          As given to the author by Michael as an aid in understanding the 70th Week of Daniel, he has shown the author that many times we must look at that 70th Week without the break of 1954 years of the Age of Grace between the First and Last Half. Here again portions of Revelation open much clearer when using this tool which we will address later. However, here, in understanding the timing for the count of the 2300 days, this tool is also very effective.  The Covenant 70th Week deals solely with Israel. Once that Week is picked back up for the Last Half with the spring of 1984 and specifically March 18, 1984, which we will continue to clarify as we move through this presentation, we can take March 18, 1984 CE and place it directly as the next day after Preparation Day April 3, 30 CE. In so doing we can see the start to the 2300 countdown is FROM the point of Messiah’s rejection and death, and the public placing of the abomination of allegiance to a foreign power on April 3, 30 CE at sundown or the end of that biblical day. The first day of the 2300 count toward arriving at the cleansing process would be the next day or March 18, 1984 when Messiah is present again.

26 CE<3 ˝ yrs>April-3-30tMar-18-1984>>2300>>>>?

 

 

Considering now Daniel 8:13-14 with comments as we have the other verses:

 

13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice (Messiah), and the transgression of desolation (the rejection of Messiah for the league with a foreign power / Rome), to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? (How long to give both their Sanctuary of strength or their relationship and Covenant with God as well as those that have forsaken the Covenant, or the host cast down, to be in allegiance with the deception of Rome and the league with the foreign power for their deliverance instead of Messiah as their deliverer.)

 

          Note that this is similar to the language of Jesus to the disciples concerning the end time in Luke 21:24 “… and Jerusalem shall be trodden down (same as trodden under foot) of the Gentiles (Rome of Iron and then Revived Rome of the ten toes of Iron and Clay in Daniel 2) until the Times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”

 

14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

 

          So once again we reiterate, Messiah would be present, the Times of the Gentiles would be over, the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week would be started and then also simultaneously, the 2300 days would start their countdown as well, as shown in the above diagram.

 

The Question

 

What if those fall Holy Days come at the End of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, and Israel

Does not receive Messiah at that time???

 

The Answer

 

          This is the reason for the 2300-day countdown starting simultaneously with the beginning of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week AND RUNNING BEYOND IT. Israel NOT receiving that final witness, as we will show was privately submitted to the elders and elite spiritual heads of the Zionist State in the fall of 1987, and rejecting it with no apparent interest shown to act on that final witness, remains with no special privilege from that point as a physical and national people under the Law of Moses called “Israel.” The Covenant of God and its brotherhood under the Law of Moses, secluding that covenant solely with the physical nation and people of Judah and Israel, is broken at that point, according to Zechariah 11:14. In addition, as we will show from the Revelation given to John on the Isle of Patmos by his personal experience with Michael, Jesus at that time, it is clear that the Last Half of the Covenant 70th Week, 3 and ˝ years, also being 42 months, would be “tread under foot” and “given” to the Gentiles as well. This is due to the Zionist league with Revived Rome, causing them to miss their Messiah again, as understood from a proper interpretation of Revelation 11:1-2 and Revelation 13:5. So we see that this final rejection is also prophesied, PREDESTINED AND RIGHT ON TIME, and should not take us by surprise. This is . . . if we understand the Word of Truth properly . . . so that this day does not take us unaware! When the cleansing begins with Messiah resulting from the completion of the 2300 countdown, it is OUTSIDE OF THE CONFIRMATION AND FINISH OF THE COVENANT WITH ISRAEL as qualified UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES as we will show, due to the Covenant being confirmed so that the blessing could come as promised in Daniel 9:24 to Israel and the world, no longer secluded to solely Israel as a physical people and nation under the Law of Moses.

 

Narrowing Our Focus

 

          Directly to the point, the Law of Moses understood to be the Ten Commandments, all the ceremonial observances, designations of certain acts as sin, sacrifice and offerings for sin, etc. was initiated on the 50th Day out from Egypt.

 

Exodus 19:3-8

3 And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the Lord commanded him.

8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord.

 

This was a Covenant to them on the basis of self-determination, freewill, and choice within their understanding of God being outside of His creation and them being inside and operating as a separate entity, even as Adam originally perceived existence and so acted to propagate the human race with Eve under that illusion of reality.

 

The Original Purpose of the Deliverance from Egypt

 

          Prior to the 50th day and the giving of the Law of Moses on the SECOND set of tables, God had espoused Israel to Himself, by cutting them off from Egypt in the Red Sea and bringing them to Mt. Sinai in Rephidim under the leadership of Moses who from the 10th day out from Egypt just before sundown ascended the mount to hear from God concerning His relationship with Israel from that point continuing unto the 32nd and 33rd day. He was in communication with God to bring Israel solely under the blessing of the original Covenant with Abraham.

 

          Exodus 2:23-28

23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

 

As clearly seen in the night hours of the beginning of the 33rd day which biblically started upon sundown on the 32nd day, the first set of stone tables produced and written upon by God in answer to the original Covenant with Abraham unto which Moses was leading Israel in the Exodus, were destroyed. As revealed unto the author writing these current pages before the reader, as we stated in Section III, Michael gave the author what God has given to him to reveal about this first set of tables and the relationship purposed at that time. Prior to this publication, no one has ever known the difference between the first set of tables produced solely by God and the second hewn out by Moses and then written upon by God. Here is that mystery revealed:

 

The Two Different Covenants

The Two Different Sets of Tables

 

          Upon the first set of tables was the clear expression of God’s relationship with man, making man the completed Son of God, first stated in Genesis 2 as “let us make man in our image and likeness.” THAT creation of man is completed by the writing of the Law upon the heart by the Word of God in two commandments, hence the original two tables of stone:

 

          Deuteronomy 6:5

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

 

Leviticus 19:18

          . . . thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself . . .

 

Loving God with all our heart, soul, and might means that we recognize all things, every act, every thought, every molecule, again all things, are God in time and space regardless of how we may perceive them by our five senses. This then extends to our neighbor in that he is absolutely the same thing as ourselves, God manifested in time and space, as well. It is this mindset that honors the Sovereignty of God and proper administration of mankind or proper government through the anointed one of God’s destination: Messiah. This deliverer was Moses at the time of the Exodus; the angel or messenger of God speaking as God in a body for Israel’s espousal to God within that mindset of God’s Sovereignty, bringing her to the redemption of mankind from which Adam departed. This relationship with the Almighty, the faith / understanding, and mindset was kept in store and preserved in the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the faithful remnant, but was not communicated to the greater body of Israel as of yet.

 

Rejecting the Proper Leadership

Rejects the Sovereignty of God

Leaves Us in the Mindset of Adam

Self-determination, Freewill, and Choice

Death and Separation from God

Lost in the Illusion that We Are Minor gods

Deciding Our Own Destiny

 

The Importance of Messiah:

Receiving Him Is the Access Opened

To the Word of God Becoming Incarnate in Mankind

Completing Our Creation as Sons of God

 

Rejecting Messiah and His Ordained Leadership

We Remain Sons of Men – Sons of Adam

 

          Now we have stated that Zionism is under the mindset of Adam, and as a result, the sanctuary of Israel’s strength is already polluted spiritually where the rejection of Messiah was the public and official pollution of that sanctuary when he was rejected April 3, Nisan 14, 30 CE. Let us now reveal where that sanctuary could have been cleansed long ago in theory. Simply, it was by staying under the leadership of Moses and receiving the FIRST set of tables. This was under the original Covenant with Abraham and not under the Law of Moses contingent upon the SECOND set of tables.

 

The Golden Calf: The Place Israel Aborted the Blessing

 

          In rejecting the leadership of Moses by revering a “feast unto the Lord” through the Golden Calf, they cut off their access to the blessing deemed a part of the Covenant of Abraham that was not only for them, but all the families of the earth. That blessing was to be inhabited personally and individually for all men by God, His Spirit, His Mindset, thus finishing the creation within the original design: “let us make man in our image and likeness.”

 

Confined Under the Law of Moses Until . . .

 

          From the 31st day out from Egypt, April 12, Iyar 15, the 2nd month, the 15th day, 1495 BCE, as recorded in Exodus 16:1-2 solidified in the action taken on the 32nd  day, April 13, Iyar 16, as a “feast unto the Lord” celebrated with fire into the night hours of the beginning of the 33rd day, April 15, Iyar 17, unto this very hour as we pen these pages, Israel has rejected its proper leadership from Moses and God in link to the Covenant and Promise to Abraham represented on the original stone tables in the two great commandments. Remaining in this condition, they were given the additional Covenant of the Law of Moses on the 50th day, May 1, Sivan 5, the 3rd month, 5th day, 1495 BCE. Israel must have the Covenant under the Law of Moses fulfilled, confirmed, and removed in order to be returned unto the original Covenant of God with Abraham.

 

Promise of Deliverance in Messiah

Prophesied within the Law of Moses

And the Testimony to that Law in the Prophets

 

          Within the Law and the Prophets, there are the prophecies of the Messiah. The best Israel’s leadership has been able to conclude from these is . . . that in establishing the kingdom of God manifested from Jerusalem, he would rebuild the temple, bring back all of Israel in a final exodus, rewrite the Law, and deliver them from their enemies. Indeed, he shall, but not as they have interpreted same. As we will go on to show, the temple established will be the temple of God with man given first of all as a time period ordained for God to be with man through Messiah in order to bring this union of God and man. Second, upon this being established, there will be the final exodus initiated by God with man – Messiah – the king like unto David and the Prophet like unto Moses. Third, he will rewrite the Law by giving understanding that rewrites it upon the heart in the two commandments as we have just stated. And finally, he will eliminate all enemies in the second commandment which, when practiced in the understanding of the first commandment, removes the illusion of any man being any different than ourselves; therefore, all men are no longer an enemy in that they are, too or also, Sons of God.

 

However, No Chicken – No Egg

 

          The Covenant under the Law of Moses specifies that only under Messiah will Israel receive all they are promised. That anointed one – the Messiah coming forth and fulfilling the Covenant under the Law of Moses, makes available that blessing upon their acceptance of Messiah OUTSIDE of the Covenant of the Law of Moses, reintroducing them to the original Covenant of Blessing: THE COVENANT OF GOD WITH ABRAHAM. It is hence we have stated that since the rejection of Moses for the Golden Calf as their connection to God, Israel has remained under the Law with the hope of blessing only in that Law being fulfilled by Messiah returning them to the Covenant of God with Abraham. THIS IS THE REDEMPTION OF ISRAEL.

 

It Is Not Over Until . . .

 

          Preterists will say this was the case at 70 CE, but they are wrong. First of all, they do not have the right message of full truth and the deliverance that accompanies it, showing they missed it, IF it was understood and preached at that time, which it was not. Plainly speaking primarily, the Gospel of Grace WAS NOT the message of FULL deliverance and clearly stated it was not. How so? It was only and simply an atonement for sin, that awaited FULL deliverance WHEN Messiah came the SECOND TIME according to Hebrews 9 and verse 28 in particular, without sin, OUTSIDE of the blood atonement, or on the other side of atonement and consideration concerning sin. Sin still remained under the Gospel of Grace, which means the Law of Moses, accenting sin, is still in effect, the works of men in responsibility to that Law, was still in place, and their failures were still accountable to the Law. The remedy at that time was solely a covering for sin STILL PRESENT but forgiven on the basis of blood atonement. This was remission of sin and was carried out by animal sacrifices with national Israel on the Day of Atonement. As pictured in the Passover Lamb, sin was passed over with respect to the shed blood. The nation of Israel in the Day of Atonement, “Yom Kippour” ceremony was forgiven once a year. However, with Christ’s offering and shed blood it put sin in remission and forgiveness in perpetuity, by that one offering. IT DID NOT ELIMINATE THE CONSTANT OCCURRENCE OF SIN AND OUR CONSCIOUSNESS OF BEING SINNERS AND STILL SINNING. THERE IS NO DOING AWAY OF SIN ALTOGETHER, NO LONGER BEING COMMITTED AND THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF ITS PRESENCE, WHILE UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES OR UNDER THE GOSPEL OF GRACE.

 

          Hebrew 9:28

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many (First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, blood atonement for sin, Sin Covered); and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, Sin Removed Entirely).

 

Work of the Great High Priest Is Not Done UNTIL…

 

          Reading Leviticus 16 in comparison with Paul’s argument in Hebrews, and Hebrews 9 in particular, which we will detail in comparison in our next Section VIII, shows the Messiah, in order to fulfill the Law and FULL atonement removing sin altogether as our Great High Priest, must come out of the heavenly sanctuary before complete deliverance and the total removal of sin can occur. This is his appearance the “second time” or the fulfillment of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and all that follows to bring full deliverance in the Second Coming of Messiah, his physical presence again the “second time” which is the hope of all true believers awaiting the final, full redemption according to Romans 8. Secondarily and an absolute line of demarcation, the Covenant with Israel under the Law of Moses WAS NOT confirmed and finished by 70 CE! The Covenant WAS confirmed releasing the blessing of Daniel 9:24 to whosoever will, upon the confirmation in the fall of 1987 AND NOT BEFORE. Only upon the Covenant between Israel and God under the Law of Moses through Messiah being confirmed, finished and consummated according to the clear mandated timing stated within that Covenant, could the blessing of FULL deliverance come, AND NOT BEFORE!!! The Gospel of Grace espousing blood atonement, forgiveness of sins, and awaiting the return of Christ WAS NOT the FULL Redemption or FULL deliverance. It only offered a hope and a sure expectation of the Full and Final Redemption, WHEN CHRIST RETURNED!!!

 

Sin Remained Accented by the Law

Hence, the Need of Blood Atonement

UNTIL the Full 70th Covenant Week Was Finished

 

          As we will show in detail in Section VIII, the Gospel of Grace is administered or given by Messiah under the Law within Leviticus 23:22 which falls between the fulfillment of the entire Law in the spring and THEN fall Holy Days in that it was access to the Gentiles, the “poor and the stranger” to the Covenant of God with Abraham to receive the same blessing, the Holy Spirit. It filled the space of time between the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, Messiah’s First Ministry which included the fulfillment of the spring Holy Days of Leviticus 23:1-21, and the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, Messiah’s Second Ministry which included the fulfillment of the fall Holy Days of Leviticus 23:23 onward. Leviticus 23:22 is that particular place in the Law and the Prophets where the Gentiles, strangers associated with - but not national, physical members of - Israel, receive from the spring harvest the same blessing given at Pentecost via the ministry of the Apostle Paul – the Holy Spirit. This fact missed by Preterism and Dispensationalism, therefore all of Christendom, once the Apostles and those who knew this truth died, left Jews and Gentiles awaiting the appearance of Messiah the Second Time to take sin away permanently and not just covered in blood atonement. The total removal of sin is pictured under the Law in Leviticus 16 as the scapegoat ritual. In that we fully explain this meticulously in Section VIII, as we have stated, let us move on here with the timing of 2300 days. The Covenant of God with Abraham is the place all men must arrive, but as long as the Law of Moses remains, it is binding and keeps one away from the Abrahamic blessing to all nations. That blessing is to receive God incarnate in them, the Holy Spirit indwelling each individual. When one receives the Messiah his access to the Holy Spirit is no longer qualified under the Law of Moses, because access directly to the Covenant of God with Abraham is opened through solely him; hence, Messiah is the way, the truth, and the life. As we will show in Section VIII, very few entered into this access fully such as the original Apostles; the remainder only came as far as forgiveness for a continually sinning state under the blood atonement of Messiah.

 

2300 Day Countdown a Further Qualification

 

          The precise timing for that revelation of full truth removing sin altogether, which justifies Israel to reject Messiah, and justifies all things bringing the cleansing of the sanctuary, not just for Israel, but for every man, will take us back to the beginning. We must realize what Israel as a nation did to Messiah is EXACTLY due to the same spirit of rebellion to God upon every man. Before the Age of Grace and the Gospel of Grace through the Blood of Christ for forgiveness of sins, before the Law of Moses, before the Call of Abraham, there is a disclosure of truth that will take us to Adam and the original departure from our Creator, before a physical people were selected under Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to carry that revelation, or the Law of Moses was given. In the broader picture, we will see revealed and removed, the Mystery of Iniquity and the Man of Sin at its roots, or from its inception with Adam, removing all guilt and leaving the cleansed sanctuary to be exactly what we see right before our eyes in all its raw and disclosed truth.

 

The Sanctuary Is Cleansed

By Full Truth Which Sets One Free.

 

          The revelation of THAT truth to the individual brings him into full understanding, and by that understanding or mindset, and revelation, all is pure and undefiled, SIN NO LONGER EXISTS. God and man are meant to dwell in harmony together and the sanctuary of God is with men, not confined to Israel. They were set apart to bring the Messiah through their physical lineage. With the finish of Daniel’s 70th Week and the confirmation of God’s Covenant under the Law of Moses, THAT IS DONE! It is Messiah, and NOT ISRAEL or its synod of rabbinical authorities that will restore man and his relationship with his Creator which Adam lost. Messages that have gone before only opened the door to glimpse that restoration and redemption, leaving believers forgiven, but still in hope of something greater. The “something greater” is a higher understanding received from a more, TIMELY message of FULL disclosure at the preset or predetermined time. The 2300 days, and those timings within it, such as the 1260, 1290 and 1335 days are our consideration here in Daniel which reveals the mechanics of how the Final Redemption and its message come.

 

Prewritten Script Transpiring Perfectly on Time

 

          One of the main things this presentation will prove by the preponderance of the evidence is that God IS and He has a plan that has progressed down through time, all being prewritten and predestined and transpiring precisely on time, as borne out by RIGHTLY interpreted prophecy that was given before it came to pass. The story is already written, and that script is being played out every moment in all things from the remotest point of some molecule in a far galaxy to the big picture of certain events given to us by prophecy. Prophecy rightly understood shows us this meticulous control and instills confidence that He who has begun His work in us will complete it. It reveals that our personal and individual times and events, just like the big prophetical ones, are also preordained, predestined, already written and transpire per His will in all things. We will find as we come to the final message of deliverance that this is one of the key factors. Other considerations are also addressed to clarify the transition from the Gospel of Grace to THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, the broader and eternal truth that always was and forever shall be.

 

ONE WAY

 

          Additionally, this Plan of God and the Progression through time are only understood BY ONE, therefore HE is the way, the truth and the life, and no man can understand truth and stand before the Father of us all, our Creator, unless they understand and have THAT ONE’s mind and view of the matter. That ONE is Jesus Christ, Michael the Great Prince of Daniel 10:21, Daniel 12:1-4&7, and John 5:28-29.  All other messages and representations of Bible truth are a lie in that they will leave one short of true understanding, lost in fantasy, literalism, and in many cases foolishness!!!

 

What about National Israel?

 

What Is their Final Place in the Plan of God?

 

The Sanctuary Cleansed

As a Finished Process in Its Main Instance

 

          As it is national, physical Israel’s place to bring Messiah in the original premise, it remains the same in the final analysis. As we have explained above, and in earlier Sections, what God does with Israel is only an example for what must be true of each individual person in order to receive blessing. Israel must reverse what they have done. In that they have rejected Messiah by God’s predetermined will and the Law and the Prophets, they must receive him by that same method and so fulfill the Law and the Prophets within themselves. It is this that will finish the public cleansing of the sanctuary even as it was their rejection of Messiah that publicly defiled the sanctuary. This is what we are laying out before the reader in this presentation, thus leading to the grand finale now upon us.

 

The Brotherhood Between Israel

And Messiah Must be Restored

 

          The brotherhood between Messiah and Israel was broken as of their continued rejection after the fulfillment of the completed 70th Covenant Confirmation Week of Daniel 9. As shown in Zechariah 11:4-17 quoted below, “Beauty” was broken in the First Ministry of Messiah by Israel’s national rejection of 26-30 CE, as we have shown in Section II, where the outward adornment she revered was taken from her in the destruction of the literal Temple in 70 CE. “Bands” was broken via the broken brotherhood between Judah/Israel and God in the Second Ministry of Messiah by Israel’s national rejection of 1984-1987, as we will show in Section IX and X, leaving them under the idol shepherd of Zionists in league with Gentile foreign powers.

 

4 Thus saith the Lord my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter;

5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the Lord; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.

6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbor's hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.

7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.

8 Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul loathed them, and their soul also abhorred me.

9 Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dies, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.

10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.

11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the Lord.

12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

13 And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prized at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.

14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.

15 And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.

16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaves the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

 

That brotherhood will be restored under Messiah as pictured in

 

          Ezekiel 37:15-28

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.

 

This will complete the cleansing of the sanctuary of Israel’s strength, placing them back under God’s Sovereignty in brotherhood with Messiah, he whose right it is according to Ezekiel 21:24-27, however, outside of the Law of Moses, already confirmed, fulfilled, and removed bringing Israel’s national redemption.

 

The Point or Place in History

Of the Message’s Broadcast or Public Full Release

 

          We will show that until Israel, national and physical, receives their Messiah and the message he brings, neither they nor the rest of the world can be blest. We will show the counterpart in spiritual reality mirrored in Leviticus 16 where the sins of Israel are removed entirely only upon the completion of the ceremony by the placing of the sins of Israel on the head of the scapegoat and sending it away. The congregation had to be in acceptance of the High Priest and in participation of this confession of their sins by the High Priest that placed them upon the scapegoat that was then sent away, for that year, so that the process could be completed and bring the desired effect. Therefore, in the greater fulfillment, it requires the nation of Israel that rejected Messiah and what he provides as cleansing for them be indeed received with their full participation, mirrored in the scapegoat ritual with the placing of the sins by confession upon the head of the scapegoat and sending him away, accomplishing once and for all the removal of sin just as in the First Messiah Ministry forgiveness and a covering for sin in atonement was accomplished once and for all.

 

Personal Application to the Individual

 

          Certainly, an individual, whosoever will, can enter in by reading this publication as far as understanding the simple message of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, but where is the real preponderance of evidence that this IS the final and correct message? It remains for Israel to be converted to confirm, from her side, the Messiah’s message and Ministry. Yes, Messiah confirmed, past tense, the Covenant under the Law of Moses in fall of 1987, as will clearly show in Sections IX and X, leaving ONLY the Covenant with Abraham for the blessing. However, it is upon Israel recognizing this fact on their part that their sanctuary of strength will have the pollution removed and the cleansing will be accomplished. Until then the sanctuary of Israel’s strength as a nation and a physical people centered out of Jerusalem and the Holy Mount remains defiled and polluted, and the world remains in darkness with her, without proper leadership and government, until she responds accordingly. To quote Michael directly: “Israel is the woes of the world.”

 

A Marriage Must Take Place

Thus, Cleansing All Prior Records

         

          It is just like a marriage. The male comes forward with his offer to the female, and so we have Messiah confirming his part of that arrangement in fulfilling under the Law of Moses, which was given to solely Israel, the Covenant of relationship whereby the marriage can take place; it is with this end in view that Messiah confirmed the 70th Week of Daniel 9:24-27.  Messiah stands in the understanding of the Covenant of God with Abraham. He entered under the bondage of the Covenant of the Law of Moses, died and rose under it, giving the Gentiles access to the Covenant of Abraham and the Law of Moses. Under the latter, man remained alive in the false understanding of self-destiny requiring the blood atonement of Messiah and forgiveness, even as did Israel under the Law of Moses. In completing the Covenant under the Law of Moses in his Second Coming and Final Ministry, he removes it between God and man as a qualification of the relationship between them. In a marriage, the potential wife must take the place of a bride in espousal to her husband, whereby that marriage can take place and further life via children be produced. So, it is the same with Messiah and Israel producing the blessing to all mankind according to the ancient promise to our father Abraham of blessing to all nations in Genesis 12.

 

Reputation Cleansed – Sin and Stigma Removed

 

          Rahab the Harlot and Ruth the Moabitess, both an abomination without standing to be part of Israel, were covered and justified when a member of Israel married them and took them as wife. We see that they both are in the lineage of David and Messiah. In like manner, all that Israel has done in her apparent departures, meticulously declared as Jacob’s Sin under the Law of Moses in this publication, rendering a scathing assessment of Zionism and its Machiavellian maneuvers, for which she has received many judgments, is canceled and a moot point when she says, “I do,” in response to the overtures of God through Messiah, “Will you have this man to reign over you?” Note this is the question rendered by Pontius Pilate to which they responded, “we have no king but Caesar,” on April 3, 30 CE, Preparation Day, Nisan 14 just prior to Passover Nisan 15. This was the official and public point of the defiling of the sanctuary of Israel’s strength, as we made abundantly clear in Section II through to this point in our publication.

 

          Moving to the present and what is occurring before us as one reads this publication, it is the “I do,” receiving Messiah as Israel’s husband and Prince, thus honoring God as Sovereign and King of the Universe, that removes all guilt under the Law of Moses, cleanses her blood of whoredom with the nations, that has not been cleansed prior to this time, thus cleansing the sanctuary of strength for Israel whereby she will be born anew as the Israel of God. This will take her back, or God will revisit the Golden Calf upon them, bringing them to that place of departure in rejecting Him and the leadership of their deliverer Moses. It is here they will destroy that false leadership represented in the Golden Calf, and their works and attempts to be minor gods deciding their own destiny. In accepting their true husband Messiah, they will be taught anew and be joined to him and God completing the Divine Plan behind this whole scenario begun from the Garden of Eden.

 

Moving to the Nations and the Individual

 

          Once Israel has cleansed the sanctuary of the their strength by returning to God as Sovereign in the above prescribed method, the nations will readily find access to come up to Jerusalem and learn of the Lord and walk in His ways according to Isaiah 2:1-4. In practical terms, as we have stated, the deliverance is in the message of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. However, just as practical and on the ground in application, the Gospel of Grace through the Apostle Paul was based upon events in the Ministry of Messiah which Paul told King Agrippa in Acts 26 were “not done in a corner,” in that it was noised abroad and a major event in ancient times. In a much greater practical application, so shall the final appearance of Messiah and joining of Israel to God in a spiritual marriage also be “not done in a corner.” Israel and her espousal to God through receiving Messiah will eclipse even the reunification of Joseph and his brethren in Genesis 45, or the Exodus from Egypt in Exodus 12, and certainly is the Exodus of the last days promised Israel in Jeremiah 23:2-8 and Isaiah 27:13.  The individual and his relationship with God are cleansed by virtue of this formula – going to Jerusalem to learn of the Lord and walk in His ways, which is by receiving a personal revelation of truth based upon what has transpired with Israel in Jerusalem. It does not mean one must make a physical, literal pilgrimage. The sanctuary of God is with all men ultimately. However, it is only upon following the example of Israel that the individual can be cleansed and so walk in harmony with his Creator. It is by having the same mindset as Messiah, thus knowing God the same way Messiah knows God. It is called in Bible terms receiving the Holy Spirit or the same knowledge, understanding, and wisdom in the individual as resides in Messiah.

 

The Overspreading and Progression of the Blessing

 

          This is the meaning within Daniel 12:3:

 

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.

 

Those who have come to full truth as it is in Messiah will in turn give that same truth to others, thus making them righteous via that correct mindset and understanding. In this manner, the glory of the Lord will overspread the earth as the water does the seas until all come to know the Lord in full manifestation from the least to the greatest according to Isaiah 40:5, Habakkuk 2:14, Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, and Zechariah 14:9. The Law of Moses being fulfilled in all aspects and the Covenant 70th Week confirmed by Messiah releases the truth to the world outside of the confines of Israel. However, it is only upon Israel receiving Messiah and his mindset or the Holy Spirit, on the other side of the Law of Moses and Messiah’s fulfillment of it, and after the confirmation of the completed 70th Week, . . . that she, nationally, will receive the Redemption, thus then being the beacon and light to the nations for which she was ordained. “Whosoever will” can THEN come into full truth via this message and website; yet, it is the national conversion of Israel that will bring attention or sound a trumpet to the world as stated in Isaiah 27:13. As we will later see in our presentation when we enter Revelation and the Seals, Trumpets, and Plagues, it is when the 7th Trumpet / Plague is rendered that the cities of the nations, the previous strongholds of supposed truth and doctrines that form the thought process of all men, will fall and be destroyed.

 

Tribulation Will Ensue

 

          It is this event that will generate tribulation such as never was since there was a nation as stated in Daniel 12:1-3, thus bringing Resurrection via spiritual enlightenment, and the Redemption.  Tribulation will be the portion of all those of the nations who have come against Jerusalem by the way of false interpretations and unauthorized handling of the Covenant of God with Israel, thus joining many spurious and heathen doctrines and traditions to the precious, pure truth of God. Like Belshazzar who was weighed in the Divine balance and found wanting, the false understanding, they have produced and fostered chiefly through Christianity, after the actual truth in the Apostles was gone, will fail them when Messiah is joined with Israel in the marriage of which we speak. It is hence all nations must abandon what they THINK they know and be raised to truth and full redemption by coming up to Messiah, Jerusalem in truth, and learn of God properly. This is exactly what Israel FIRST must do in order to be married to Messiah and bring the blessing to them and the world. The foundation to all of this process is concisely stated in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, the first link and booklet offered on this website to whosoever will come and take of the waters of life freely:

          God is not done with Israel, nor has she lost her identity as a nation as Preterists falsely claim. Even though the Covenant with them under the Law of Moses has been confirmed and finished, as we will soon show, it is on that basis the final sequence of judgment begins in order to bring her to the marriage and her cleansed sanctuary of strength under her original link to God through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, which in itself is the link back to the Garden of Eden relationship with God before Adam’s departure. We will show that this process to bring Israel to blessing starts with the judgment that sets in after the “time times and the dividing of time” in Daniel 7:24-27 which also opens up the Book of Revelation revealing what has gone before Daniel’s 70 Weeks and then takes us into what occurs after its confirmation called also the “Last End of the Indignation.”

 

Preview of the Actual Mechanics Leading

To the Conversion of Israel Accepting Messiah

 

          The actual mechanics of that judgment, to bring Israel to national repentance and conversion in acceptance of Messiah and proper government under the Sovereignty of God, which we will address in great detail later in this publication, can be seen in current events after December 3, 1987, the 1335 days when Messiah left the Holy Land calling for a removal of that which opposed his ministry. We will also find that the 1290 days, which occurred 45 days earlier while Messiah was still in the Holy Land, marks out why and how the ministry of Messiah was rejected as to the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. The plan of Zionists coming to its final pinnacle on that day October 19, 1987, Black Monday Stock Market Crash which confiscated the Holy Land and its oil fields into the Zionist web, 30 days after Messiah arrived with the blessing of Isaiah 40:1-2, on September 18/19, 1987, the 1260th day, reveals this was the obstacle all along. Down through history from the time of the Golden Calf, it has replaced the proper position of God, Moses, and later Messiah and has reached the final pinnacle on the 1290th day. It is the mindset of self-destiny thinking it knows how to accomplish the Covenant using a collective spirit of messiahship that is clearly revealed as the problem. With Messiah calling for judgment of this abomination and its removal, and leaving the Holy Land on the 1335th day, we will reveal the judgment that has set in and has now come to greater intensity just before the public appearance of Messiah and the conversion of Israel back under the Sovereignty of God.

 

Summarizing the Gospel of Grace

Versus

The Everlasting Gospel

 

          Both of these messages, are contingent upon Messiah fulfilling the Covenant of God with Israel under the Law of Moses, returning Israel to the Faith of Abraham before the Law was given. Within the First Half ending in the fulfilled Law of the Spring Feast of High Holy Days, the blessing conveyed was twofold:

 

1)   There was the one time offering for sin as an atonement with blood replacing the Law’s offering of animal blood. This granted forgiveness upon confession, and remission of sin as to the penalty required.

2)   There was the further blessing of the Holy Spirit which very few went on to receive, only obtainable by entering into the mindset of Messiah. This was given at Pentecost called the “Holy Spirit.” 

 

The argument of Hebrews which we address in the following Sections, shows they stopped short of this second blessing except for the few. This left everyone receiving Messiah or colloquially stated “Jesus Christ as their savior” covered under blood atonement or blessing number one, awaiting the reception of the mindset of Messiah being put in them which does away with sin and the consciousness thereof, blessing number two. This second blessing is only available now with the return of Messiah releasing the fullness of his mindset and knowledge again, which then is given to the all who receive him and hear his voice of truth. That voice of truth is not available until he returns and is manifested publicly again. Therefore, the full truth is hidden, and all we have had so far at the end time is the false messages of those that try to give us something they do not understand themselves. Once more we say, all we have is the first blessing of forgiveness, leaving us still sinners awaiting the sinless condition upon Messiah’s return.  This sinless condition is only through the final message THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL given only upon Messiah finishing and totally confirming the Covenant 70th Week of Daniel 9, and the cleansing of Israel’s sanctuary of strength. Therefore, today, in light of those that had the fullness as did the Apostle Paul centuries ago, we can best understand this simply in the following manner reinforced by later Sections in this publication:

 

First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week: Israel rejects Messiah. The Blessing of the one-time offering for Sin is opened to the Gentiles or all Jews and Gentiles that receive Messiah. Sin remains, but covered in the Blood Atonement. This is the limited Gospel of Grace.

 

Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week: Israel rejects Messiah. The Judgment sets in to bring her to repentance accepting Messiah upon which his mindset is communicated to all Jews and Gentiles in the fulfillment of all the Law, doing away with sin altogether, making it nonexistent by the revelation of full truth under the Covenant of God with Abraham. This is the limitless Everlasting Gospel. 

 

1984 and Beyond

 

          At this time, we will update our diagram to take us beyond 1984. Remember that the terms “1260 Days,” “42 Months,” “time times and a half,” are all different ways of stating the same thing which is the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week or 3 and 1/2 years, where in one occasion 1260, in each half, refers to the whole 70th Week, when each half is added together. The scriptures using these connotations are all correlated as we come to them in these lectures on Daniel, and as to the Book of Revelation in our lectures on that Book in due time.

          In brief explanation of each date, concerning which we will give more details and verification as we continue, March 18, 1984 started simultaneously the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week or 3 and ˝ years, which is 42 months, as it is also 1260 days. This 3 and ˝, or time times and a half, of Daniel 12:7, ran from just before sundown in Jerusalem March 18, 1984 to just before sundown on September 18, 1987.  30 days later was October 19, 1987 the 1290th Day of Daniel 12:11 with December 3, 1987 being the 1335th Day or Daniel 12:12, keeping in mind those days are part of the greater 2300 days.

         

          This is the close of this Section VII, where we will return in Section IX to finish the details and markers of the Times of the Gentiles that lead us to their conclusion in the spring of 1984 which simultaneously began the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and the 2300-day countdown, when Michael stands up and brings The Redemption and Full Disclosed Revelation of Truth. This will also include practical facts on the ground as to the final deception established in 1948/1967 through the Zionist State and those portions of Daniel 7-11 that clearly prophesy those events centuries before. This will bring us to the End of the Times of the Gentiles and the simultaneous beginning of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and 2300-day countdown. Those fall Holy Days of Leviticus 23, which were not fulfilled in Messiah’s First Ministry, will be given in day-by-day fulfillment at the end of the 3 and ˝ years in Israel and Jerusalem in particular, as well as the significance and bearing upon Israel and the Messiah, with relation to the 1290 days and 1335 days of Daniel 12:11-12. The 1290 we will show as the pinnacle point of the Zionist plan per their concept to bring the blessing standing opposed to the blessing in Messiah at the 1335 days which brings the judgment upon the Zionist plan and mindset removing it in due time, so the blessing is seen and available to all or “whosoever will.” These day-counts of 1260-1290-1335 are ALL part of the 2300 days to which Daniel is pointed by this recorded meeting and vision with Michael the Great Prince, as markers of significance. We will coordinate first Daniel 2-8 with 11:36 forward, while quoting verses verbatim with interpolated comments, as we have done before, as we proceed to our destination in Section IX.

 

A Process Started and Not Ended

 

          One of the factors we must understand regarding the cleansing of the sanctuary, both for the individual and for the nation of Israel, is that it is contingent upon Messiah being present initiating that process which could not begin until the 2300 days were finished. In other words, it is not 2300 days and then the sanctuary is “cleansed” as an adjective of description or a finished work. It is rather that the sanctuary is “cleansed” as an active verb. It began with the end of the 2300 days. It continues as a cleansing process until one comes to the truth of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL as a revelation and understanding between God and man. For Israel nationally, it is a process due to their rejection of Messiah whereby they are driven back to him to have their link restored to God that was lost when their sanctuary of strength was polluted by accepting a Gentile power over them as messiah rather than the true Messiah. Only in receiving him, the Chief Messenger, will they respect him properly and then listen and hear his voice, thus receiving his message, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, as well.

 

What about the Gentiles and the Time after 30 CE?

 

          In our next Section VIII, we will take on a parenthesis, within our goal of strictly following Israel and those events associated, to examine the period of what is called universally in any realm of Christianity, “The Age of Grace.” Additionally, it is universally understood by most, that it ends with the coming of Messiah the Second Time. In Section IX we will then pick back up with the final days of the Covenant relationship of God with Israel, followed by the days after that relationship is finished as qualified under the Law of Moses, and then events leading us to the Full Deliverance and Redemption, that occurs with national and physical Israel first and then disseminated to all nations as a blessing fulfilling Genesis 12:1-3.
