Eight Days of Thanksgiving to Yahweh


Though few people are aware of it, the American Thanksgiving Tradition - and its seasonally earlier counterpart in Canada - has biblical ties to the autumn harvest Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles. This special week-long feast is still kept faithfully by some Christians and Messianics and all religious Jews around the world in September or October of every year.

As a Harvest Festival, much joy and merry-making surrounds the keeping of the Feast of Sukkot, which is the seventh and final of the original Feasts of Yahweh. As the final feast, Sukkot or Tabernacles represents the coming everlasting Kingdom of God that will one day be established on Earth from the old city of Jerusalem during the Millennial Rule of Christ, and also afterward in eternity - from the holy city of God called the New Jerusalem, where the Bride of Christ and her Five Wise Virgin handmaidens will one day dwell.

In honor of the Feast of Tabernacles and the American (and Canadian) Thanksgiving tradition based upon it, I plan to meditate on eight Scriptures that I chose because they focus on the concept of thanksgiving and praise to Yahweh God. I will be doing so from November 24th through to the first day of Advent on December 1st, and I hope that you will join me in praising our Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace!

These Scripture verses were taken from both the Old Testament and the New Testaments. Together, they show that there are many wonderful reasons for us to give thanks right now, and at any time of year, just as there are many methods for believers in Yahshua to show their thanks to God and one another for the blessings they receive.

I hope you will join me in studying and praying about these thanksgiving verses for the allotted eight days. If you do, I am certain that this process will greatly bless you. I personally have found these Scriptures to be both comforting and convicting. I hope that they will do the same for you, even while encouraging you to make thanksgiving to God an integral part of your daily spiritual devotions as we await Yahshua’s soon return.

In the meantime, Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!

Maranatha!

The Spiritual Wisdom Hidden in the
Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

By Helena Lehman
Pillar of Enoch Ministry
http://pillar-of-enoch.com

Click To Enlarge
Are you an earnest believer in Yahshua that desires to dwell on the things of God, and are you excited over the Gospel of the coming Millennial Kingdom of God? Furthermore, do you find yourself bewildered and shocked when you are ostracized and avoided because of this? If so, “The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares” in Chapter 13 of the Gospel of John should be consulted for wisdom. Our Messiah Yahshua or Jesus, who is our Good Shepherd, gave this parable and its basic interpretation to His disciples and a large gathering of followers by the shores of the Sea of Galilee. At the time, He shared several other related parables, including the Parable of the Sower, which He also interpreted, and the Parable of the Mustard Seed. 

This Parable teaches that - just before the Rapture and visible return of Yahshua Ha Mashiach - a great sifting out of wicked people from the ranks of the righteous followers of Yahweh would occur. This sifting has never been more evident in history than it is today. In fact, it can be clearly seen in the diametrically opposed views of conservatives and liberals - both politically and religiously - that are completely dividing the people within the USA and Israel into two totally antagonistic spiritual and moral camps. In fact, this scriptural sifting of the people into diametrically opposing camps is evident throughout the world right now, in EVERY nation, not just the USA and Israel.

Because of its major End Time significance, all students of prophecy need to thoroughly understand this Parable - especially its deeper spiritual applications. Please allow me to guide you in an exploration of this Parable to see what hidden wisdom it has to share. Let’s begin by reading the entire Parable:
The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares - Matthew 13:24-30 (NKJV): “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, “Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?” 28 He said to them, “An enemy has done this.” The servants said to him, “Do you want us then to go and gather them up?” 29 But he said, “No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn”.’”
After reading it, it should be clear that this Parable is teaching that the Church is NOT exempt from judgment. In fact, the sifting process of dividing out the bad tares from the good wheat in the final harvest before the Millennial Kingdom of Yahshua is going on within the Church just as it is in the world at large. This is because, even as the Protestant Churches have grown in wisdom and truth over the past two centuries, the Devil has been busy sowing God’s enemies within, as well as outside of the Church, as well as in the much younger Messianic Synagogues! Remember what Yahshua said at the end of “The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares”:  “At the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, ‘FIRST gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn’.’”

Note that, in this Parable’s conclusion, Yahshua is saying that He will gather the tares into bundles (by way of their seeming unity and their large congregations) BEFORE the wheat or true believers are gathered into God’s Barn. This means that the bad tares among the congregations are to be separated out of the Body of Christ just BEFORE the Rapture into Heaven. It also means that we who are inside the Body of Christ will KNOW who the tares are by their behavior and choices that are contrary to the Word of God. The most obvious clues that a person is not among the wheat can be seen in their moral choices, such as those who condone homosexuality and abortion. Scripture is clear that all unrepentant sinners and carnally-minded people will be known by their denial of God’s laws, and by seeing good as evil, and evil as good:
Unrighteous Excluded From The Kingdom - 1 Corinthians 6:8-10 (NKJV): “You yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren! 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Anyone with their spiritual eyes open, and that has a living, loving relationship with Yahshua Ha Mashiach and the Ruach Ha Kodesh (i.e. Holy Spirit), should be able to plainly see this sifting of people into opposing camps occurring today. They should also be able to spot the lairs that are wolves in sheep’s clothing within the Churches and Messianic Synagogues, and they should do all they can to expose them. Make no mistake! There are many lying preachers promoting false doctrines in the Church because they are secretly Gnostics, New Agers, or Pagan followers of Satan that wish to destroy the Church for various reasons.

Within the Messianic congregations, some of their Rabbis insist on a legalistic adherence to the Law at the exclusion of Grace. They also often deny, and constantly attack the freedom that Christians have been given in Yahshua. Finally, they often deny the true deity of Christ as equal to the Father. Many of the cunning liars in both the Churches and Synagogues are good at fooling the sheep by making false accusations against the true prophets and followers of Yahshua. In this way, they have created a terrible spirit of confusion among the saints. But ONLY those who are NOT living a sanctified life, who are not reading God’s Word for themselves, and who are not constantly praying for discernment will be, or will remain, deceived!

The lines are being drawn and everybody is being called to take a side. No one will be left on the fence when this divine sifting process is finished, and all who are meant to be exposed as the false teachers and liars that they are will be exposed - but ONLY to those whom God is soon going to call UP to His Heavenly Home to wed His Wonderful Son. Yahshua our Bridegroom also intimated that our enemies (the tares) would at times be our friends or members of our own family. This truth is clearly taught in the Scripture listed below:
Christ Brings Division - Matthew 10:34-39 (NKJV):) “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
I know of many devout believers, myself among them, in marriages with unbelievers or backslidden believers that are suffering persecution at the hands of their spouses, as well as at the hands of their parents, siblings, children, and other relatives. Those who have lost their carnal lives in order to inherit the spiritual life that Yahshua offers them will NEVER really fit in socially, or have a huge circle of intimate friends. They will, rather, find themselves increasingly alone, misunderstood, maligned, and ostracized from society due to their love of Christ. However, they will be greatly rewarded for their dedication and steadfastness in the Millennial Kingdom of Yahshua, and also afterward. In fact, it is likely that these solitary, persecuted, and often impoverished believers will be the only ones who will be worthy enough to be counted as the Bride of Christ. This is revealed in the Book of Revelation regarding the Church of Philadelphia:
The Faithful Church - Revelation 3:7-12 (NKJV) “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens: 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.’”
In reviewing this amazing passage, let’s identify the traits of the Church of Philadelphia. First of all, this church only has “a little strength”, meaning that it is a relatively small and materially poor congregation of believers that are nonetheless spiritually rich. Furthermore, this church has “kept My word, and have not denied My name.” This means that the members of this Church are not ashamed to profess their faith in, and love for Christ, and their desire to follow Him and His laws to love God, and one another.

As the name of this Church implies, they are full of “philadelphia” or brotherly love. They love one another deeply, and also show love to their enemies and persecutors by trying to reach them with the truth of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, which is that Yahshua is the Messiah and Son of God, and the ONLY way to Heaven. Only those who repent and accept Yahshua’s sacrifice on the Cross for their sins will receive the Ruach or Holy Spirit, Who teaches true followers to die to this world and live for Christ. Only those who have received the Ruach, and know how to hear the Spirit’s voice, are worthy of salvation in Yahshua, and will find their names written in the Book of Life.

Be forewarned! Living a sacrificial life in imitation of Christ is extremely difficult in this world, and those who choose to follow Yahshua DEFINITELY WILL find themselves persecuted for His Sake. In fact, Yahshua acknowledged the suffering of the Church of Philadelphia when He said that they have “kept My command to persevere.” By saying this, Yahshua meant that they would be able to endure the insults, lies, taunts, betrayals, and beatings that are part of the persecution of the saints by the Evil One without losing their faith or hope in Yahshua’s promises of deliverance. Those who persevere in the faith, and who refuse to let go of their hope in the Kingdom of God, are those whom Yahshua calls “overcomers”.

This means that only the believers who display the characteristics of brotherly love, faithfulness to God’s Word, and perseverance in persecution belong to the Church of Philadelphia. Furthermore, this is the ONLY church of the seven mentioned at the beginning of the Book of Revelation to which Yahshua promises: “I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it”, and; “I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” Both of these statements are allusions to the Harpazo, Rapture, or “catching away” of the Church that many believers are hoping for.


Depiction of the Rapture

This is why the churches are being so heavily sifted into wheat and tares, and why there are so many true believers who are being persecuted within the churches, and driven outside of them. As this sifting process reaches its conclusion, the many divisions and squabbles going on within, and between, and outside of the world’s many churches will only increase. Meanwhile, those poor but loving believers who belong to the Church of Philadelphia will stand alone, for they will be the only people who are truly worthy of Yahshua’s love. Only they will love Yahshua with all their hearts, and only they will love one another by preaching the Kingdom of God while they anxiously await the Rapture.

There is one final trait of the Church of Philadelphia that too many prophecy teachers have overlooked to the detriment of the Church. This is the fact that Yahshua only identifies the Philadelphians with the New Jerusalem, and only the New Jerusalem is identified as the Bride of Christ. Yahshua identified the Church of Philadelphia with the New Jerusalem when He said:
“I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God.”
Then, later in the Book of Revelation, we read:
The New Jerusalem - Revelation 21:9-10 (NKJV):“Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, ‘Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.’ 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God…”

Yahshua Over Jerusalem

This reveals that ONLY those who are in the Church of Philadelphia will dwell in the New Jerusalem. Meanwhile, all those who are not found worthy to be included in this group will dwell outside the New Jerusalem:
The Glory of the New Jerusalem - Revelation 22:22-27 (NKJV): “But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
First of all, this Scripture teaches that only those whose names are written in the Book of Life will dwell with Christ forever on the New Earth. But it also teaches that there will be different communities on the New Earth, and not everyone will dwell in the New Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem, where the Temple of God is, is identified with the Bride of Christ, while the outside communities of believers are identified by the words “nations” and “kings of the earth.” These are the believers that were not chosen to be the Bride, but will be allowed to come within the walls of the New Jerusalem, experience its glory, and share in the joy of the Bride of Christ. But as attendants of the Bride, they will dwell in the blessed communities or “nations” surrounding the New Jerusalem. As a side note, the fact that there will be different communities of believers with different functions on the New Earth is described in the Book of 1 Enoch, which is considered to be canonical in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

The fact that there are some believers who are not in true fellowship with God, and will be excluded from being the Bride of Christ, is explained in the “The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins”(LINK TO POEM Blog Article For This Parable)(LINK to Matthew 25:1-13). In this parable, note that Yahshua distinguishes the Wise Virgins or wise bridesmaids from the Foolish Virgins with the phrase: “I do not know you” (See Mat. 25:12), which is similar to His admonition to the goats that: “I never knew you” (See Mat. 7:23). This statement makes it clear that those who are excluded from the Kingdom DO NOT HAVE AN ACTIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST AND HIS SPIRIT. As a result, they will be left behind when the Rapture happens.

Meanwhile, the Wise Virgins who have cultivated a deep relationship with Christ through continual repentance and prayer, and worship will be allowed to attend the Bride of Christ, and partake in her Glory. Make no mistake! Those who want to be counted as the Bride, as well as the virgin attendants to the Bride, MUST have a personal and deeply intimate relationship with Yahshua and His Ruach or Holy Spirit. Even while living in troublesome or harsh circumstances in this fallen world, they will be the ones who will still be able to love their neighbors, love their relationship with God by seeking to know Him, and who will hear and follow God’s voice through every trial and tribulation, even if it leads to martyrdom.

For further study of the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins, please read the following article:

Deciphering the Parable of the Ten Virgins

Only Yahweh God our Father knows who the Bride of Christ is, and who her virgin attendants will be. Our job as believers should not be to worry about which category we fall into, but only that we are counted worthy to have our names written in the Book of Life. Indeed, all those who dwell on the New Earth - whether outside or inside the New Jerusalem - will have blessed and happy positions within God’s everlasting Kingdom, and no one will feel envy or jealousy ever again. They will all be united forever in the perfect love of Christ that casts out all fear and envy.

Amen and Hallelu-Yah to that!

FOR FURTHER STUDY:

Please read my complimentary, newer revised article about the truth of the Rapture, and the fact that there may be not one, but two Rapture events - one at the beginning, and one at the end of the Great Tribulation. This article can be found posted at my Pillar of Enoch Ministry web site. Here is a description of it, and a link to the HTML and PDF versions of it now available online:

REVISED 2013 Edition: 
“Come Up Here and Come Away!” -
Clues Concerning Two Rapture Events In Scripture:
This 20-page article was originally written in March 2010, was revised twice in 2011, and revised and updated again in July of 2012. Subsequently, this newest edition was created on February 19th, 2013. If you read the original article or the older revisions, this article contains numerous changes in regard to the possibility and timing of Two Raptures during the Great Tribulation. This is due to Helena Lehman’s better understanding of the Signs in the Heavens after doing her Tribulation Time Chart, which is linked to in the body of this article, as well as to many other recent prophetic developments in the last two years. In this article, Ms. Lehman shows that the First Rapture is thematically tied to the Jewish Spring Feasts. This article also shows evidence that there may be a Second Rapture toward the end of the Tribulation that is tied to the Jewish Fall Feasts.

I pray that these articles will bless you and help you to grow in spiritual understanding as we await the Rapture. In the meantime, remember that...

Yahshua is coming SOON! Maranatha!

The Burrunjor; A Living Nephilim?

Therapod Illustration:


Here's a link to an interesting article describing recent attacks on cattle by what could be the last surviving Therapod dinosaur species:

Jurassic Albatross: The Burrunjor; a living dinosaur?
http://wwwmidgetonfire.blogspot.com/2010/04/burrunjour-living-neovenatorid.html

This article gives reports about these creepy encounters with a creature called the Burrunjor by the Aborigines in modern Australia. In my book "The Language of God in History," I describe Therapod dinosaurs as possibly being none other than one of the many types of totally carnal and evil Nephilim monsters that were created by the Fallen Angels before the Flood using some type of genetic splicing.

Now some of you may ask: How did they survive the Flood? Legends suggest some of the Nephilim survived in an underground chamber deep inside the Earth. There may have been a few that survived this way. Of course, nobody knows for certain. But the Genesis, Chapter 6 account in the Bible makes it clear that some Nephilim did survive somehow.

There are reports of other dinosaur-like creatures that may have survived into modern times in the heavy jungles of the Congo in Africa and in Papua, New Guinea as well. I talk about these possibilities in my book “The Language of God in History”, on sale now at the POEM web site:

The Origins of Islam, and a Report on the Hajj to Mecca

By Helena Lehman
Pillar of Enoch Ministry

http://pillar-of-enoch.com

Photo of Muslim Pilgrims Surrounding the Ka'aba in Mecca:


The Origins of Islam

Long ago, I read that Mohammed, being dissatisfied with the paganism in Arabia and believing that there was only one God, went on a quest to find the truest path to God. During his travels, he spoke with many Jews and Christians trying to find the truth. But, because of widespread apostasy and confusion among Christian and Jewish sects, Mohammed never was taught properly and was never led to accept Yahshua as his Savior.

Instead, Mohammed came to the conclusion that no one religion had the whole truth, but only portions of the truth. So Mohammed decided it would be wise to create a religious platform that everyone could agree on. He felt this would not only eliminate any confusion about the nature of God and what He expects from His human children, but it would lead to world peace because everyone would have the same views on what God’s will for mankind is.

Mohammed tried to achieve this goal of peace by writing down the best stories and traditions from the major monotheistic faiths he encountered at the time, embellishing them with the Arabic folklore surrounding various Jewish and Christian traditions and religious stories. Then, in order to get people to listen to him, Mohammed taught that these stories were dictated to him by the angel Gabriel and were therefore more perfect than the Scriptures written down by men.

However, though Mohammed’s Arab contemporaries readily listened to and followed him, few of the Jews or Christians would listen. Instead, they repeatedly rejected him and refused to become Muslims. As a result, Mohammed got angry and returned to his home in Arabia, where he amended his writings to include the slanderous and violence-promoting passages towards infidels that the Koran contains today.

In addition, Mohammed began to call his followers to join him in a jihad or holy war to spread Islam throughout the whole world at the point of a sword. Though Mohammed’s goal of world Islamic domination was never achieved in history, it did come close several times. But that doesn’t seem good enough to some Muslims, who view the West with fear and contempt due to their moral laxity. This attitude of some devout Muslims is what has led to radical Islam today.

Since Islam is basically a skewed interpretation of Jewish and Christian holy books, it explains why Muslims believe similar things to Jews and Christians while denying the basic tenants of both faiths. For example, in the article linked to above, the Muslims are reported as seeing Abraham as the one who was tempted three times by the Devil instead of Yahshua, and they also see Abraham attempting to slay Ishmael on the altar rather than Isaac.

But the biggest tragedy of Islam is that their teachings about Yahshua, whom they call Isa, are also erroneous. Though they acknowledge his greatness as a teacher and prophet, Muslims deny Yahshua’s deity and holiness - to their everlasting peril. So, in a spirit of true Christian love and brotherhood, we need to pray that God will open a way for us to reach the Muslims with the truth of the Gospel before they all perish in the Antichrist’s kingdom.


Here is a link to an interesting article on Islam that appeared in a local online paper today. This article is reporting on the fact that this week on the Muslim calendar is the traditional time to go on a pilgrimage or Hajj to Mecca, Saudi Arabia to pray before the Ka’aba:

RED ALERT:
Israel Preparing for War As Crystal Skull Rituals Are Initiated

**********************************

This article focuses on Israel’s struggle to protect itself against her enemies even as a Pandora’s Box of epic proportions is being opened by Mayan Shamans in possession of 13 inherently evil crystal skulls. What’s more, the final skull ritual will occur in Los Angeles on 11-11-11 - the same time that the movie called “The Immortals” focusing on the antics of the fallen angels that were worshiped as gods in ancient times is being released!


If you haven't already heard, let me alert you to a serious development in the Middle East that is happening even as the US Military continues to remove their troops from Iraq.

As revealed in the news story linked to below, it appears that the Israelis are seriously preparing for a coming war with Iran, which has continued to develop nuclear weapons capability without restraint or compromise in their vows to destroy Israel with them once they are ready.

Israeli F15 War Jets


As Iran’s allies, Syria and Russia may also get involved in this coming confrontation with Israel. If so, it probably won't be long before Bible Prophecy is fulfilled and Damascus is completely destroyed along with some top nuclear and military installations in Iran and Russia. If Russia steps in, however, this coming war with Israel could escalate into a devastating world war, with the Rapture possibly happening not long after that. This scenario would be a fulfillment of the Gog/Magog War of Bible Prophecy spoken of in Chapters 38 and 39 of the book of Ezekiel.

Increasing Preparation for Confrontation with Iran:

In fact, there is so much prophetically significant news occurring at the same time right now, it's mind-boggling. For one thing, the United Nations is planning to vote on elevating Palestine’s statehood, and this move may include giving all or a portion of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. But when this occurs, there is no doubt that the entire world will pay a huge price for dividing God’s Covenant Land and for hating His original Covenant People.

Another scary development is the sudden re-appearance of thirteen reportedly ancient crystal skulls that some Mayan spiritual leaders have been given. These Mayan leaders are none other than pantheistic Shamans that have become adept at wielding demonic power. It is therefore extremely frightening that these Mayan spiritual leaders are traveling across the United States right now with the skulls, performing dark, secret ancient rituals to release their power into the world.

The 13 Crystal Skulls


What's even more unsettling is the fact that they plan to end these rituals on November 11th, 2011 (11-11-11) in Los Angeles in a hotel strikingly named the “GATEWAY” - as in a gateway to demonic power:

Intriguingly, the final stop in this continental journey has an interesting distinction. This is the fact that - among the cities of America - the New Age movement is firmly entrenched among the rich and wealthy living in and around Los Angeles and San Francisco. In fact, California as a whole is a New Age play land and therefore the location of a formidable demonic stronghold.

Crystal Skull Used In Meditation


I have read that crystals in general have very real energy-conducting capabilities and are often used in technology for this purpose. However, most people don't know that crystals also seem to conduct and transmit spiritual energy. That is why crystals are so popular for use in meditation and channeling in New Age circles. Here is a blog article that explains how spiritually and cosmically deadly these skulls may truly be:

Letter From Former New Ager
Concerning Crystal Skulls:
http://jimmyprophet.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/letter-from-former-new-ager-concerning-crystal-skulls/


Original Letter Source:
http://stevequayle.com/News.alert/11_Global/111102.crystal.skulls.html


Made in the images of dead men's bones that house the brains of human beings that are continually bent on evil unless they are saved, these crystal skulls are said to be purely evil repositories of curses and demonic power. Legends surrounding the skulls indicate that they could not be destroyed by any ordinary means because of the dark forces protecting them. So the righteous people who finally got hold of the skulls in ancient times carefully hid them around the world to keep them from being used for evil purposes for as long as possible.

But now all thirteen skulls have been recovered and joined back together in the hands of people who do not love the one true God Yahweh or His Son. As such, the skulls are like a Pandora’s Box of epic proportions and can only bring evil into the world by those who use them!

Fascinatingly, a movie called "The Immortals" that focuses on the mortal human hero Theseus' power struggles with the immortal beings worshiped by humanity in ancient times is being released into US Theaters on 11-11-11. Based on Greek mythology, the movie focuses on Theseus, who is chosen by the god Zeus to lead the fight against the ruthless King Hyperion.

According to the movie, Theseus is called into action because this evil king is on a rampage across Greece to obtain a weapon that can destroy humanity. In truth, however, Theseus was the legendary founder of Athens, making him a mortal man who followed the Way of Cain or the Serpent that was the basis of the polytheistic Greek Religion.

For Theseus to be immortalized by the Greeks, he had to have succeeded in doing something inherently more evil than saving the human race from physical extinction. Though saving humanity from extinction was seen as a good thing in God's eyes in relation to Noah and his family, the gods that Theseus and his peers worshiped are the evil spirits of the fallen angels and their Nephilim offspring. Furthermore, both of these inhuman (i.e. alien) races are evil to the core and may be scheduled to make a sinister re-appearance on the world scene in the near future.

Finally, another movie out of Hollywood aptly named "11-11-11" is coming out on that same date. The 11-11-11 movie, which has been called a scary thriller in reviews, was written around the real-life buzz surrounding the eerie fact that the number 11 has been appearing so often in religious people's lives lately. According to one reviewer, this horror movie takes place on 11-11-11 and features an otherworldly entity (translation: a demon or fallen angel) that comes to Earth through Heaven’s 11th gate (?).

All in all, it seems to not only be another attempt to profit from exploiting people's fears, but a way to mock the outwardly religious people that are most likely to be entertaining them. I say this because truly born-again sinners generally are surrounded by the peace that transcends all understanding that only Yahshua our Messiah can give to those who love Him (Philippians 4:7).

All of these developments are sure signs that the Great Tribulation or time of Jacob’s Trouble will soon be upon the world and the Rapture cannot be far off. So please continually pray to be protected, forgiven and spiritual ready, and keep looking UP, because Yahshua our Bridegroom is surely coming soon!

May Yahweh Our God Bless Us All With His Wisdom And Protection As Trouble Approaches Us From Every Side! Amen!

Encouragement To Keep Looking Up…

**********************************


The Great Catching Away or Rapture


I watched a You Tube video made by a man named Jason yesterday and, after pondering what he had to say overnight, decided that it would be good to share it. This short video was created to encourage those who are waiting for our Messiah and Bridegroom Yahshua to come for His Bride the True Church in the Rapture. I hope your spirits will be brightened by it.

I was interested in what Jason had to say and I think you will be too. The fact that the United Nations is set to vote on the establishment of a Palestinian State on November 11th, 2011 (11-11-11) is an intriguing development, to say the least! Eleven is, after all, a number prophetically pointing to disintegration and impending destruction or deliverance. For more on this, check out what E. W. Bullinger wrote about the number eleven in his book “Number in Scripture”. The section concerning the number eleven (and, from there, the entire book) is accessible online free using the following link:

“Number in Scripture - Eleven:”
http://philologos.org/__eb-nis/eleven.htm

That said, keep in mind that Moses entered the Ark in the second month of the Jewish year, which usually falls in May in our era, NOT the eighth Jewish month which generally begins in the eleventh month of November following the Gregorian Calendar:
Genesis 7:10-12 - The Flood Begins:
“And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, IN THE SECOND MONTH, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.”

Nonetheless, there is still a strong dispute among different groups of believers as to whether the second month meant the eighth Lunar month called Cheshvan, which falls after the seventh month of Tishri - or the second month called Iyar, which follows the first month of Nissan.

Since God’s prophetic timeline is encoded into the Feasts of Israel - and the first feasts they celebrated as a free nation fell during Passover Week - it would follow that any prophetic imagery that might be hidden into the story of Noah would follow the prophetic calendar beginning on the 1st of Nissan in the spring. However, Rosh Hashanah is traditionally celebrated on the 1st of Tishri or the Feast of Trumpets in the autumn. This is because Tishri is the first month of the Jewish civil year, which may follow ancient Babylonian traditions, though this is not certain.

In the Bible, however, the liturgical year that God gave the Israelites to follow began on the 1st of Nissan in the spring. This was also the month in which the first Passover was kept, as indicated in the Book of Exodus:
Exodus 12:1-7 - The Passover Instituted:
“Now the LORD (Yahweh) spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 ‘This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. 4 And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. 7 And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.’”

Due to the fact that Noah entered the ark on the seventeenth day of the second month - and the 2nd month falls in mid-spring per God’s commandments - I'm NOT at all convinced that the Rapture will happen during mid-autumn. If the Rapture were to follow the biblical account of Noah’s deliverance from certain death in the Great Flood, it makes much more sense that we should be looking for our deliverance in mid-spring. But you never know. After all, Yahshua DID say that He would come when we LEAST expect Him to! So there is ALWAYS reason to hope! :-)

Here is the link to Jason's video at You Tube:

PLEASE WATCH!!!!)-
Eminent Rapture & (NWO) 7 years of Tribulation:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvFfCDOMgGM



Jason's Video Commentary:
I'm begging you from the bottom of my heart to BE ENCOURAGED GUYS, PREPARE YOURSELF SPIRITUALLY, DROP TO YOUR KNEES & REPENT OF YOUR SINS & GET YOURSELF RIGHT WITH GOD before the (RAPTURE) & our Lords wrath is poured upon this wicked world; which will happen in the days to follow; very shortly. God Bless, Jason

Enjoy and God bless!

MASSIVE 10-1 SOLAR IMPACT & CME COVERED-UP!

By Helena Lehman
Pillar of Enoch Ministry

http://pillar-of-enoch.com


Sun Grazing Comet of 10-1-2011:



********************************


For those of you unfamiliar with the potential threat to electronic and satellite communications on the Earth, Coronal Mass Ejections or CMEs can be highly disruptive to electronic communications of all kinds, especially Satellite and aircraft communications. Although CME’s don’t appear to hurt living things on the Earth, extremely large X-Class CME’s may have deleterious affects on all life because electrical currents run through the bodies of living things, which produce invisible energy auras around them that some say can be perceived subconsciously.

With this in mind, a horrendously huge CME occurred on October 1st, 2011 that was NO ordinary one because it seems to have been caused by a massive object hitting our Sun! Judging by the spectacular size of its coma and tail, this object that was hurled into the Sun was likely a massive comet. For those of you unfamiliar with comet physiology, the coma is the aura-like debris and energy field that forms around comets.

This direct “Sun-grazer” Solar impact was so severe that it appears to have caused one of the most massive X Class (X = Highest Level) Solar Flares ever recorded, which lasted over an hour! And what is even more disturbing about this impact and flare is that it was partly censored as it was happening when access to online video feeds of the Sun were cut off! Furthermore, Space.com and Spaceweather.com both severely downplayed this huge Sun-grazer impact and CME as if it was insignificant, which it is NOT!!!

What this impact and CME might mean to human life, and life in general on planet Earth remains to be seen, as it takes anywhere from 1 to 4 days for a CME’s affects to reach our planet. But the fact that this event was partially censored shows that the governments of the world are trying to suppress the seriousness of this event. The first video by Mary Greeley that is linked to and embedded below shows the length of this CME, while the first video by DAHBOO7 shows the whole uncensored Solar impact and CME sequence that was later suppressed.

So that you can formulate you own opinions about this event, here are links (along with embedded videos on my blog) to four You Tube videos that document both the comet impact and the CME that followed it in close succession as well as links to the lousy coverage of this MAJOR event at Space.com and Spaceweather.com. Before ending this article, I want to alert you to stay tuned for my follow-up Blog post, in which I will provide my interpretation of this event using Sacred Astronomy and the Gospel in the Stars.


God bless and Maranatha!

The Word of the Lord: “I AM on My Way”!



***********************************

Shalom My Brothers and Sisters in Yahshua!


I am writing to share a powerful prophetic word that I received from a very godly woman in Yahshua who is my friend and has been praying for me and my ministry for several years. I just received this word late on Sunday 10/2 and felt compelled to share it with everyone because it is such an encouraging and joyful word for those of us who are waiting on Yahshua to come for us. Please read it prayerfully and share it with your friends and family. Without further ado, here it is:

***********************************

Word of the Lord
Sunday, October 02, 2011


“Release My Glory. That is what I have called you to do. Release my love, My favor, My riches in glory. For My blessings are yours to dispense. My Love is unending. My Grace is for all who believe. A river of glory will flow and fall on all those whose hearts are seeking Me. These are the last days that my Bride and Body will be on the earth. I will restore My Bride and My Body unto Myself. I will restore the broken passages of the lives of My beloved ones. They will see My goodness which is the goodness of the Father and they will no longer be separated from me in their hearts. It is a new day.

The hearts of My own will be refreshed and restored. Hope will increase and abound. The world’s treasures will no longer have a stranglehold on the hearts of those whose desire is to know Me. The enemy of their souls will be silenced. But there must be a conscious desire to be with Me, My beloved. The world does not know Me. The deception of ‘busy actions’ has kept My beloved called out ones from spending time with Me. Religious spirits are law abiding; they make conscious acts to ‘do this or not do that’ a priority in the minds of those who do not really know Me.


Illustration - Throne Room in Heaven:

My desire is for My beloved called ones to truly know Me and My love for them. It is a choice, My beloved ones. The time is short and the days will seem like darkness is approaching. But I AM the light. Abide in Me and darkness will have no hold on you. You will see the salvation of many and the restoration of many back to Me. Stand fast in the glory of My Presence, with Me, in the heavenly throne room. I have called you unto Myself. You will be filled with My glory and prevail. I AM coming for you quickly. Surely, I have said it, “I AM on My way”.

God Bless you as we all move into the New Year with the Lord!
Love, in Christ,
Joanne

***********************************


What this word is saying to me is that Yahshua is coming for His Bride very, very soon and His Bride the True Church of born-again believers needs to be ready to leave in the Rapture at any moment. It also says that now is NOT the time to be distracted or busy with the world’s affairs. Instead, now is the time to draw near to Yahshua whenever you can in worship and prayer and study and to share your faith with anyone who will listen while you still can.

Illustration - The Rapture:

This word also seems to be affirming a hunch that I've had for a while based on what I said in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” in relation to the timeline prophecy that is hidden in the Autumn Feasts:

Hidden Prophecy in the Autumn Feasts of Israel:
http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/Prophecy_Autumn_Feasts.pdf

In that prophetic word that I was given, 2011 is the Yom Kippur year of that prophetic timeline. So, it is as if God Almighty had given mankind one last year to turn back to Him and repent of their sins; one last year to take advantage of the open door in Heaven allowing people’s names to be written in the Book of Life if only they would accept Yahshua as their Messiah.

If this word that I was given is true, and I truly believe that it is, then it might be possible that Yahweh God also means to end this year of repentance on Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement, which falls on October 8th, 2011.

For those who wish to watch with me on that day for the possible coming our Bridegroom and King, I did some research to find out exactly when Yom Kippur will begin and end. According to http://www.hebcal.com/, my favorite place to track the Jewish Feasts, this day of fasting and repentance begins at dusk (i.e. sundown) on October 7th and lasts until dusk on October 8th this year.

After that, I went to the following web site:

World Time Server:
http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_IL.aspx

There, I discovered that the Central Standard Time (CST) Zone that is applicable where I live is exactly 7 hours behind the time in Israel. So, on October 7th, the Sun will be completely below the horizon at 6:20 pm Israel time that day, which would be 11:22 am CST on October 7th. Furthermore, the day will end at 6:19 pm on October 8th, which is 11:19 am CST on the same day. So, these are the times we need to be extra diligent and watchful for our Messiah’s arrival.

For more information about Yom Kippur and its potential relationship to the Rapture of the Church, here is a link to an excellent article done by a fellow servant of Yahshua at the “What In The World?” Blog:

We Are Seeing “The Day Approaching”!:
http://theworldisshaking.blogspot.com/2010/09/we-are-seeing-day-approaching.html

After reading this well-written and detailed post, it is not hard to get fired up about thinking our redemption could be sometime this Yom Kippur! However, we MUST always remember that Yahshua promised to come for us at a time when no one expects Him to. So, though Yom Kippur is a good potential Rapture day, we can’t be certain of the exact day and hour. All we CAN be certain of due to the overwhelming signs all around us in the heavens, on the land, in the sea, and among the nations is that Yahshua is coming again SOON, and VERY SOON!

So, please don’t lose heart! Keep looking UP, for our redemption draws near!

Hallelu-Yah and Maranatha!

The Ominous Sign in Heaven on
Yom Teruah 2011 - What It Means

By Helena Lehman of the
Pillar of Enoch Ministry
http://pillar-of-enoch.com

**************************************

On the first day of Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets on September 29th, 2011, an unusual sign was seen in heaven that seemed to mimic the sign described in Revelation 12:1 of “a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.”

This sign is known to have appeared on the Yom Teruah that fell on September 11th, 3 BC, which many hold to be the sign that heralded the imminent birth of Yahshua the Messiah. This sign fell in the Zodiac sign of Virgo the Virgin, which can refer to Miriam, the mother of Yahshua the Son of Man, though it also has a darker connotation as Eve, the first woman to sin.

On 9-11-3 BC, under Virgo’s feet, was the Crescent Moon heralding the beginning of another Jewish Civil year and the seventh Jewish month of Tishri. Meanwhile, the Sun was clothing Virgo in her belly, symbolizing the imminent birth of “the Sun of Righteousness” (Malachi 4:2). Also, on 9-11-3 BC, the Woman’s crown of twelve stars could also clearly be seen in Leo the Lion, the symbol also known as the Lion of Judah that has eleven principle stars. On that day, however, the twelfth star was present in the Messiah planet Jupiter, which was in conjunction with the “king” star Regulus in Leo’s forepaws.

In contrast, on 9-29-2011, a comet, which has always been seen as a harbinger of evil, was just above Virgo’s head and near to the hind end of Leo the Lion. This is the Comet named Elenin. Ominously, the name Elenin can be broken down into the Sumerian terms “El” meaning “God” and “Nin” meaning “Lady”. Taken together, then, they mean “lady god”, a term which could easily be applied to any number of ancient Sumerian goddesses, including Nin-Gal, meaning “Great Lady” or “QUEEN”.

STAR CHART FOR THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS
ON SEPTEMBER 29TH, 2011


Click to Enlarge Star Chart

As such, this comet may be there to identify Virgo not with Yahshua’s saintly Jewish mother Miriam, but with the false Gentile “Queen of Heaven” worshipped by many around the world in place of Christ. This false goddess is also known by the blasphemous term “Mother of God” and the “Co-Redemtrix” supplanting Christ as the Redeemer!

In addition, instead of the Sun in Virgo’s belly, the Sun was at Virgo’s chest in conjunction with Mercury on 9-29-2011, while the planets or “wandering stars” Saturn and Venus were in conjunction in her belly. At first glance, the “Morning Star” planet Venus (named “Shining” or “Nogah” in Hebrew) that was being paired with Saturn (named “Sabbath” or “Shabbatai” in Hebrew), which represents Christ’s crown and His rest, could suggest that the child about to be born in Virgo the Virgin’s womb at this current time in history might be a representative of Yahshua the King of kings as the Morning Star spoken of in Revelation 22:16.

However, as of 9-29-2011, both Venus and Saturn appear in the night sky just after the Sun sets, meaning that they are NOT morning stars but evening stars! Unfortunately, this gives them a negative connotation to their original meaning. Furthermore, the current ruler of this world and the one who has destroyed our rest is the Devil, and his occult symbol has long been seen as the planet Saturn by way of his usurpation!

Fascinatingly, the Hebrew name “Nogah” or “Shining One” is the same name the Jews used for Venus, which also became known as the “Morning Star” or “Day Star.” This term is translated as “Lucifer” in Latin, and the name Lucifer has long been known as another title for Satan. This meaning of the word Nogah is applied to the King of Babylon in Isaiah 14:12, where he is depicted as the son of Satan for his blasphemy:
“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: ‘ I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.” - Isaiah 14:12-15
This suggests that the sign that seems to mimic the one seen around the time of Christ’s birth in Virgo (which also represents the first woman to fall to Lucifer’s temptations named Eve) is NOT representative of the Virgin Miriam giving birth to the Son of God (or His Bride as some have asserted), but signifies a demoness giving birth to the rulers of the kingdom of Lucifer, which could only mean that the kingdom of the Antichrist is about to be born!

Based on all this reasoning, my conclusion about the sign in heaven that appeared on Yom Teruah in 2011 is that, though it IS a trumpet call from God, it is NOT heralding the Rapture! Instead it is heralding the increased persecution of the saints around the world in the coming year of 2012, just as the following passage in Revelation, Chapter 12 intimates will happen:
“And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.’ And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! WOE TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH AND THE SEA! FOR THE DEVIL HAS COME DOWN TO YOU, HAVING GREAT WRATH, BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT HE HAS A SHORT TIME.” - Revelation 12:8-12

This passage describes the fact that Yahshua’s blood sacrifice on the Cross broke Satan’s stranglehold on mankind and those who claim Christ’s blood sacrifice as a righteous covering can overcome the Devil and his evil schemes against them. After Yahshua rose from the dead, He presented Himself before Yahweh God our Father as the Firstfruits of the First Resurrection and symbolically cast Satan down out of Heaven to Earth, where he is determined to destroy as many as he can who are not covered by Yahshua’s blood and therefore cannot overcome Satan’s power. Nonetheless, Satan’s wrath against the True Church has been, and will continue to be unleashed until the Rapture.

Now, according to my research, the year 2012 is also intimately tied to the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12. I discovered this through the letter correlation of the 22 letters in the Hebrew Aleph-Bet with the 22 Chapters in the Book of Revelation. Fascinatingly, the five Hebrew letters correlating with Chapters 12 through 17 of the Book of Revelation have a special finial form. I also noted that the chapters in Revelation that are tied to these five Hebrew letters with special FINIAL or END forms are dealing with the Great Tribulation. Then, later, through divine revelation, God showed me that Revelation, Chapters 12 through 17 are tied to Hallel Psalms 112 through 117, which in turn correlate to events within the years 2012 through 2017! This means that the Rapture (or Raptures) and the Great Tribulation will take place sometime between the beginning of 2012 and close of 2017. However, my research also suggests that Yahshua's Second Coming to fight the Battle of Armageddon may come before the end of 2016. But only time will tell.

As regards the saints now living through the seven-year Tribulation, which I believe already began in 2011, I firmly believe that Yahshua promised all who love Him that He would deliver them from God’s Wrath, which my research indicates may be poured out between the end of 2013 and the end of 2016. Many saints believe this deliverance will be done via an event known as the Rapture, for which there is much scriptural support. So, though this sign in the heavens on Yom Teruah in 2011 does NOT indicate that the Rapture will occur on that date, it does suggest that the Rapture may be sometime in 2012, though it will likely come at a time when no one expects it!

This is especially true because, according to God’s spiritual calendar, the year 2012, which is the Jewish Year 5772, won’t truly end until the 1st of Nissan on March 12th, 2013. Though Yom Teruah, which will fall between September 16th thru 18th, 2012, is the start of the next Jewish Civil year, their religious calendar starts on Nissan 1, in the spring. So, if there is to be a Mid-Tribulation Rapture, it could come as late as the early Spring in 2013.

Fascinatingly, since Revelation Chapter 12 is tied to the year 2012, it is likely that the Rapture could happen before 2012 ends. After all, the Christ child of the Woman clothed with the Sun, which can also signify His Church, is caught up to Heaven in Revelation Chapter 12. Similarly, the word for “wilderness” that the Woman finds safety in could be translated as “place of refuge”, which could also be an allusion to the Rapture. In addition, Revelation Chapter 13, which is tied to the year 2013, talks about the Mark of the Beast being implemented. This means that, by the end of 2013 (or the spring of 2014 per the Jewish Calendar), no commerce will likely to able to be conducted by anyone who does not have the 666 Mark of the Beast inscribed on their foreheads or hands, whether it is a chip implant, applied bar code, or some other type of identification device.

So keep looking UP, and keep praying that you will be spared Satan’s wrath upon the Tribulation Saints that will come out of the apostate Church and God’s commensurate wrath against the nations in league with Satan.


God bless you all, and Maranatha!

A Timely Video Brings Yom Teruah
Into Crisper Prophetic Focus

*************************************


A video that I posted on 9-28-2011 on my wall at Facebook of President Obama being heckled as the Antichrist shows that the stage is definitely being set for increasing persecution of Christians in America, just as I forewarned per the Signs in the Heavens for this Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets:

FEAST OF TRUMPETS - SEPT. 29, 2011

And here is the video that I posted at Facebook:

Heckler Calls Obama - The Antichrist - At LA Fundraiser



Eerily, the crowd’s chanting of “four more years!” at the rally in an effort to drown out the jeers of the Christian heckler reminded one Facebook reader of this blog post of the scene before Yahshua’s crucifixion when the crowds were yelling “Barabbas!” at Pilate and I had to agree with him wholeheartedly.

The way I found out about this video was through a friend at Facebook who shared a link with me to an article that included an embedded link to it. Here is the internet link to that article on the Look Up Fellowship web site:

ONE MAN IN THE CROWD:
http://www.lookupfellowship.com/2011/09/one-man-in-crowd.html

From my reading of the article, though this commentator did seem to think the Rapture is about to occur this Yom Teruah, he also thinks the persecution of the saints is possibly in view through this incident, and I agree. Remember that my interpretation of the Signs in the Heavens for this Yom Teruah were negative on the Rapture. Instead, I think the signs indicate that the Church is about to experience heavy persecution, even in the West.

Of course, no one has been listening to me, rather wishing to hear that the Rapture is imminent and that we will all be blissfully happy in Heaven soon, for obvious reasons. No one wants to have to face persecution, but all believers should expect it. It is what Yahshua promised us all that we would experience once we chose to follow Him. We should worry if we never experience persecution, because that means we have not been following the path that Yahshua our Messiah took.

I do believe that the Rapture is coming soon, but I am not convinced it is going to happen over the next two days. Though there is no reason why it couldn’t happen now, it just doesn’t feel right to me somehow. I hope we go to Heaven this Yom Teruah, but we may need to remain here for a little while yet, maybe a few months to a year more.

If we are to remain here on Earth a bit longer, we are likely going to have to experience increasing persecution. But do not be afraid! Rather, prepare yourself to suffer persecution for Christ’s sake by drawing near to God in prayer and praise and asking Him to give you His peace and strength via the Holy Spirit.

Before ending this message, I want to stress that I think we DO need to be anxious for Yahshua’s coming. After all, Yahshua commanded us to “Watch!” But we must not do this to the point that we forget to do God’s will in the here and now. We all need to make being active in sharing our faith, living a holy life, and setting a good example for others a primary goal even as we hope for our beloved Messiah’s return with love and longing.

In the meantime, Maranatha and God bless you all this Yom Teruah!

Israel and the New Jerusalem: Symbolic Shofars Tied to Orion, Canis Major, and the Feast of Trumpets

Excerpt from “The Language of God in History”,
Chapter 3, pages 178 thru 183:


Could Stonehenge have been built by the righteous human followers of Yahweh with the aid of holy Watchers like Uriel, and was it made to instruct mankind about their ultimate purpose? This is certainly possible and would explain why it exhibits knowledge that the common people of that time era were generally ignorant of. If so, it is just as likely that the Pillar of Enoch (i.e. Great Pyramid) in Egypt was built by the Sethites with the aid of the Watchers to preserve their knowledge of the coming Messiah for future generations. In addition, this mighty pyramid may stand as a symbol for the ultimate place of the righteous in Christ’s everlasting Kingdom. Indeed, the truth that the Great Pyramid represents the Kingdom of God seems to be encoded in Scripture since Mount Zion appears to refer to the Great Pyramid and its heavenly counterpart:
“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.” - Revelation 14:1 (NKJ)

Could it be that - on one fateful day during the Great Tribulation - Christ will literally stand atop the Great Pyramid with His 144,000 Witnesses just as Revelation 14:1 intimates? If so, will Christ cap and complete that unfinished pyramid at that time? It certainly is possible that Christ and His Witnesses will repair and finish this artificial mountain that was built in Christ’s honor by our righteous ancestors. At that time, they may also reconsecrate that magnificent ancient altar to God. After that, Christ may send His Witnesses to preach in the four corners of the Earth - corners that are appropriately signified by the Great Pyramid’s four corners.

In direct contrast to this, the small Pyramid at Giza attributed to Pharaoh Menkaure signifies the robber that rejected Christ on Calvary and the scapegoat on the Day of Atonement. This goat was also known as the Azazel goat signifying the fallen Watcher Azazel (i.e. Satan):
“When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tent of Meeting and the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat. He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites… and put them on the goat's head. He shall send the goat away into the desert… The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert.” - Leviticus 16:20-22

The ritual of total abandonment described in the preceding Scripture graphically portrays what Hell will be like for Satan and all those who follow him in rebellion against God. Like the scapegoat, all unrepentant sinners will be abandoned forever in a barren, lifeless place of unending heat, thirst and everlasting torment. And like the scapegoat, they will forever remain spirits whose mortal resurrected bodies will perish in the heat of the Lake of Fire, and whose spirits will never be able to escape from it. This is the horrible fate that awaits all the angels and people who rebel against God without remorse. Indeed, there will be no escape for anyone who refuses to worship the Lamb or humbly accept His sacrifice for their sins. How tragic that so many currently seem destined to dwell in Hell forever. May Yahweh help them all!

Another fact of the crucifixion represented at Giza is that the whole grisly event occurred just outside the walls of the old city of Jerusalem. Likewise, Giza is just outside of the much greater area that the New Jerusalem will one day encompass, which will include all of the Sinai Wilderness to Egypt’s eastern desert border, and all of the land north of modern Israel up to the borders of the Euphrates River as per Revelation 21:16:
“The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs (or stadia). Its length, breadth, and height are equal.”

Note that the New Jerusalem is described as having an enormous square base, with each side of the city being 12,000 furlongs or stadia in length. Now, one stadium is 600 feet long, meaning that the New Jerusalem will have an incredible side length of 7,200,000 feet! Since there are 5,280 feet in a statute mile, the New Jerusalem will measure 1,363.63 miles per side, and its height will equal that length! So, though this could be envisioned as a giant cube-shaped city, it is more likely that the New Jerusalem will mimic the aesthetically beautiful shape of the Great Pyramid - only on a much grander scale!

If so, the Great Pyramid may be a small representation of the New Jerusalem. Also known as the City of God, the New Jerusalem will be the everlasting home of Christ’s Bride, the True Church. It will cover all the territory once belonging to the ancient Kingdom of Israel, stretching all the way to Egypt in the south and Turkey in the north. Like old Jerusalem, the Great Pyramid, Great Sphinx and the Sphinx Temple may also receive a makeover in eternity so that they can forever commemorate Christ’s death and resurrection outside of the New Jerusalem’s sacred walls.

Uncannily, there are other secrets hidden in this region that will one day serve as the foundation of the New Jerusalem. One of them is found in the shape of the Kingdom of Ancient Israel, which covered about the same amount of land as the New Jerusalem will one day. As shown in the first illustration on page 181, this land area is roughly in the shape of a Shofar, or trumpet made from a Ram’s Horn, as shown in the illustration inset. Why hasn’t anyone seemed to notice this, or comment on the fact that this Shofar appears to follow the same path as the great highway that will reach from Egypt to Assyria during the Millennial Rule of Christ? In addition, it may trace the path that the 144,000 Witnesses will take after meeting Yahshua on Mount Zion during the Great Tribulation, and the path that Yahshua will take when He comes to save Israel in the Battle of Armageddon.

Intriguingly, several Scriptures connected to the Day of the Lord mention the sounding of a great trumpet, a highway stretching from Egypt to Assyria, the city of Jerusalem, and the Lord (Yahweh) coming out of Zion to rescue Jacob or Israel:
“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians.” - Isaiah 19:23 (NKJ)

“In that day the LORD (Yahweh) will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to… Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up… And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the LORD (Yahweh) on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.” - Isaiah 27:12-13 (NIV)

“Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD (Yahweh) brings back the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.” - Psalm 14:7 (NKJ)

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD (Yahweh) is coming, for it is at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness…” - Joel 2:1-2 (NKJ)

“And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.’” - Romans 11:26-27 (NKJ) (also see Isaiah 59:20-21)

Israel as Yahshua’s Shofar or Ram’s Horn

Sacred Places Tied to Christ, the One-Horned Ram

Note that the first of the five Scriptures just quoted appears shortly after Isaiah’s prophetic reference to the Great Pyramid as the Altar to Yahweh “in the midst of the land of Egypt” (Isaiah 19:19). These Scriptures make it fairly clear that Zion, Egypt, Israel, Jerusalem, and Assyria are all connected to the trumpet imagery of the Bible surrounding the coming of the Day of the Lord, or the Millennial Rule of Christ. As such, they all may collectively be seen as a part of Zion, though the Pillar of Enoch seems to have been the first place on Earth labeled that way.

Another hidden meaning related to Israel as a symbolic ram’s horn trumpet is found in looking at a new constellation that has been added to the sky between Canis Major, Canis Minor, and Orion. This constellation happens to be called Monoceros, and - as shown in the second illustration on page 181 - it is within the boundaries of the triangle formed by connecting Al Nitak, Sirius and Procyon with lines. Monoceros means “One Horned” as found in a unicorn, and - as shown in Book Four - a unicorn can serve both as a symbol for Christ - and the Antichrist. It can also represent the right horn of Taurus, which is connected to the Tribe of Ephraim representing Gentile Christianity.

Now, if Monoceros were to be depicted on the Earth, its stars would signify various locales within the triangle-shaped Sinai Wilderness between Israel and Egypt. In other words, in the recent past, God saw to it that what I am revealing here would be verified and divinely acknowledged by the creation of a new constellation called “One Horned” in the bowl portion of a symbolic horn or trumpet formed by Israel’s old borders!

This suggests that Yahshua, the One-Horned Ram foreseen by Enoch - as opposed to the One-Horned Goat belonging to the Antichrist seen by Daniel - will come from Zion (i.e. the Great Pyramid) with an army of saints and angels, will go into Israel from that direction, and then will go as far as Assyria to conquer the Antichrist’s armies and re-establish the old boundaries of Israel under King David.

All of this horn and trumpet symbolism that is tied to Israel is also connected to the animal horns blown on Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of Trumpets, and the animals sacrificed on the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur. Ideally, animals sacrificed as sin and atonement offerings sported horns. Though Yahshua did not have literal horns on His head like rams or goats, John the Baptist called our Messiah “the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” (John 1:29).

Indeed, even the very shape of the land of Israel from the air recognizes Yahshua’s symbolic role as the One Horned Ram of Yahweh who died for our sins. In addition, the sounding of trumpets is mentioned repeatedly in connection with the Rapture of the True Church, which will likely occur before Yahshua’s Second Coming (Mat. 24:31; 1 Cor. 15:52; 1 Thess. 4:16; Rev. 4:1).
