Well it's that time of year again where the western world goes insane with over-spending and over-indulgence. We have this overwhelming tsunami of pressure from the mass media advertising that 'Christmas is so magical,' a time of giving, giving, giving...eating, eating, eating, and that it is the center of everyone's 'happiness'. However, it is really just a blown-out fantasy, a forced, fabricated emotion that leaves us entirely disappointed and empty the following day, as it is devoid of true meaning and only fleeting.... That's if you take the message of Jesus out of the equation.
Even though He was not born on the 25th December (but on the 1st Tishri, or the Feast of Trumpets on the Hebrew calendar, which corresponds to September on our calendar - see Part 2 - Unveiling the Time of Jacob's Trouble, pp. 309-313), and that date was originally associated with the pagan worship of false gods, believers in Jesus of Nazareth wisely use this time to proclaim the profound message to the world that God is indeed real and is deeply interested in each of us. He chose to enter our world and tabernacle with man in the person of Jesus, to die for a sin-sick humanity that we may live eternally if we only believe in Him. But He didn't stay dead, for He rose again on the third day fulfilling many prophecies - particularly Psalm 16:10 written nearly 1000 years before He was even born:
"For You will not leave My soul in Sheol, nor will You
allow Your Holy One to see corruption."
The very real, historical event of the resurrection of Jesus - witnessed by over 500 people at the time, and recorded in the secular Jewish writings of Josephus - is solid proof that Jesus was, and is indeed, God in the flesh, AND that He keeps His word. For all the details of His birth, lineage, life, and death fulfilled over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament, or Tanakh, written hundreds of years before He was born.
But that's not the end of the story....because He is due to re-enter our world very soon, in fact, much sooner than we all dared to imagine!
Now 2014 is fast approaching, and another year is about to end in a flash! Most people I talk to, even my own children, say they feel that time seems to be speeding up. Our twenty-four days haven't changed though - as the clock still ticks away at the same second-intervals - yet 'time' as we know it definitely feels to be going faster. Just like the major prophecies about the events of Jesus' crucifixion were mainly concentrated and in quick succession in His final week on earth - 'time' itself seems to be compacted in the same way as we get closer to His return.
If you get hold of my books, particularly Part 2 - Unveiling the Time of Jacob's Trouble - you will discover that there is a set timetable for Jesus' Second Coming that is built into the 8 Jewish Feasts (the 7 biblical feasts and Hanukah), the constellation patterns (the zodiac, or correctly, the Mazzaroth in Hebrew), the sun and moon eclipses, the Hebrew calendar, the seven-day week, AND what was created in Genesis 1! You will be amazed to learn that the world is almost 6000 years old (which I prove in Part 2), we can know what the exact year is from creation, AND that Jesus returns in the year 6000 for the believing Jews and Gentiles - patterned after Adam and Eve on the 6th day.
2014 is going to be a BIG year as far as the last-days prophecies go. The scheduled tetrad Blood Red Moons (full moon eclipses) that have created such a huge buzz in Christian prophecy circles on the internet, just so happens to be occurring on Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles in 2014 and 2015, as it did in 1949/1950 shortly after the birth of Israel, and in 1967/1968 when Israel regained Jerusalem for the first time since 70 AD. April 15, 2014 is the first of these Blood Red Moons, and is only 16 weeks away, or 111 days to be more precise! Israel has got until that very month to finally clinch the 'so-called' peace deal with the Palestinians.
Is that just a coincidence, or do you detect divine providence here?
Dear Reader, Daniel 9:27 is about to be fulfilled:
"Then he shall confirm a covenant with the many for one week..."
[The 'he' is the 'evil one,' and the 'one week' is seven years in the Jewish reckoning of time, which is also called 'Daniel's 70th week'.]
Additional proof is there has also recently been a huge shift detected in the spiritual realm between October 28 and November 5 of this year. Amazingly, the following 'numbering of our days' from Psalm 90:12 is a witness to this extra-ordinary phenomena:
* October 28, 2013 is exactly 1,260 days (or 3.5 prophetic years of 360
days) prior to Passover 2017 - the projected time for the Abomination
* November 5, 2013 is exactly 2,520 days (or 7 prophetic years of 360
days) prior to the projected date for the end of the Great Tribulation
(also the time of Jacob's trouble - Jeremiah 30:7), which is Yom
Kippur on 10 Tishri 2020, AND when Jesus is scheduled to dramatically
break into our atmosphere as detailed in Revelation 19.
[The extensive study on the projected dates for the Abomination of Desolation and the end of the Great Tribulation/Jesus return are detailed in Part 2 - Unveiling the Time of Jacob's Trouble, Chapter's 10-16.]
Hence, according to the numbering of our days and the detected spiritual shift in the heavenlies, spiritually speaking, WE HAVE JUST ENTERED DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK! So Dear Reader, we need to brace ourselves as world events are going to become far more intense and widespread in the next 7 years. You only have to look at what horrible attrocities are happening to our Christian brothers and sisters in places like Egypt, some African nations, and Syria, to see the intensity of persecution building and spreading. The insane hatred for Christians in the Middle-East and age-old anti-semitism in Europe are reaching epidemic proportions, as predicted accurately in the Book of books.
