The Jubilee Count to the End, and 2024-2028

Can we calculate the specific year that Christ will return on? Maybe, however the conclusions expressed are subject to change and I’m updating this whenever I think it needs amending!

In a nutshell, the details below reexamine a prophecy in the book of Daniel, that reveals new information that:

1) Shows the correct year of Jesus’ crucifixion.

2) Calculates to the SECOND rebuilding of the walls in Jerusalem. (It was prophecied over 2000 years ago, and it comes to the exact year it was rebuilt, LESS than 500 years ago!)

3) Calculates the most likely year for the SECOND COMING of Christ – just a few years from now.

Key Takeaways
*
Although the explanation is complicated, the calculations themselves are fairly simple. You can easily do this arithmetic yourself for verification.
* The 7 x 7 x 70 count up to the fall of Mystery Babylon fits perfectly into all the other uses of 7 throughout the Bible, and is 100% consistent with other usages of this Biblical number.
* You won’t need to wait long to see if all this is true or not!

The Jubilee Count

Some may not realise it, but the Biblical Jubilee pictures the coming reign of Christ, when men are set free from Satan’s bondage. It’s introduced in Leviticus, with various instructions about keeping it. Eg. Lev 25:10.

God’s true Jubilee count occurs every 49 years, see Lev 25:8, not every 50 years, as I and many others have thought in the past.

Each count is a total of 7 times 7, which comes to 49. The fiftieth year occurs on the first year of the NEXT 49 year count.

It’s like saying Sunday is on the eighth day of a 7 day week, but we still count weeks consecutively in 7’s.

Jubilee Years & Daniel’s Prophecy

Daniel 9:25,26 has been translated very poorly. It may have lost clarity going from Aramaic, to Hebrew, to English. as the original may have been written in Aramaic.

I’m not a Hebrew scholar, and you’re welcome to research it yourself. This is the Interlinear for verse 25 (read words in red from right side to left side) : https://mail.biblehub.com/interlinear/daniel/9-25.htm

The numbers in the Hebrew text include 7 and then ‘sevened weeks,’ and then 60, and 2, (word number H8147), but the TWO here probably means a SECOND time, or double, or a second block of 7’s. Examples of Strong’s word H8147 being used to mean double are in Exodus 22:4,7,9 and 2Kings 2:9.

Notice it says again, and two, which could mean repeat, a second time.

A better paraphrase of Dan 9:25 might go something like:

“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, unto Messiah the Prince, shall be 7 times 70 weeks (which is ten jubilees – that is, 490 years). Then later, on the 60th Jubilee, add a second group of 7 (another 490 year block). The street shall be built AGAIN, and the walls (although some translations say moat [Youngs Literal says rampart, which means defensive wall]), even in troublous times.”

Add 490 years to the year of the Decree that was given by Artaxerses (Ezra chapter 7), in 457 BC, and we get 33 AD, or it could be 32 AD. That’s because Biblical Jubilee years don’t start or end the same time as ours. They begin on Atonement – See Lev 25:8,9 and 10 and 13. This is very confusing to me, as Exodus 12:2 says the year starts around Passover season.

However, the next verse, Dan 9:26 may be saying that Messiah is cut off in the middle of a 7. If I subtract half a week, it is half of the last 7 years, and so, if the above count was correct for 32 AD, that would require subtracting 4 from 32, making 28 AD, which fits this interpretation of the prophecy exactly!

Several of my other research sources, such as the 2028end.com website also estimate that the crucifixion was in 28 AD. It’s backed up by adding 30 to the time of Jesus birth about 4 BC. There are many references to the year of birth, but I’ll just use this wikipedia reference.

Add 30 because that’s the age Jesus started his ministry, see Luke 3:23.

4 BC + 30 = 26 AD, then subtract 1 equals about 25 AD. That calculates to the start of Jesus’ ministry. Then add 3 and a half, and you have the crucifixion date of 28 AD.

Some people argue that Jesus only had a 70 week ministry, not 3 1/2 years. If that’s correct, the crucifixion date may still calculate to 28 AD, so far as I can tell, weighing up lots of information from many sources. But that date is less important to establish than which date to calculate the second coming from!

I won’t dwell more on the calculations for Jesus first coming, because you don’t actually need those dates to calculate the approximate date of the SECOND coming. Let’s focus on the calculation for second coming, which calculates to 2028, only four years from now!

The Exact Year?

There’s a countdown clock on the 2028end website. I’m not confident about which day, but let’s continue with Daniel 9.29

I believe Daniel 9:25 is actually saying that on the 60th Jubilee of the crossing of the Jordan in 1406 BC there will be a second decree to rebuild Jerusalem.

Multiply 49 (the length of a Jubilee period) by 60 and add it to 1406 BC when Israel crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land. Also SUBTRACT 1 to account for no year 0.

(The 1406 BC Jordan crossing Jubilee is found in these two offsite links: The Apocryphon of Joshua, Fragment 12 and The Israelites cross the River Jordan – The Bible Journey)

The rebuilding calculation comes to 1536 AD, but may also be 1537 AD, to be the year that rebuilding the walls started. Because a new Jubilee year starts in September or October, if it was after the new year in 1536, then we do have a perfect match for 1537.

That prophecy was fulfilled by “Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent!” who was the ruler of the Ottoman empire at that time.

The command was given in 1535 AD.

Ref. #1 wikipedia date reference here. Was it given before or after October, and does the command matter, or is it the years for building that matter?

Ref. #2 The second building of the wall by Suleiman is mentioned in this video which shows the actual inscription commemorating the rebuilding date, which he places at 1538, but, as above, it seems the command to rebuild was actually given in 1535.

(The relevant part of the video goes between the 2 1/2 minute mark to the 3 1/2 minute mark.)

The fact that there is an exact match in history for a second command to rebuild Jerusalem and it’s walls, in (it looks like) the exact year predicted in Daniel, strongly indicates that the “2 again” in verse 25 in the Interlinear, does, in fact, mean to do a second calculation from the second building of the wall.

Also, if you were to multiply by 50 instead of 49 for consecutive jubilees, there is no match; so this also argues in favour of 49 vs 50 for counting purposes.

The prophecy says to count a second set of 490 years from the 60th Jubilee rebuilding date, and because we got an exact Jubilee match at 1537, we need to count another 490 years to 2027. The Jubilee comes the following year, after the consecutive 49 year counts.

1537 + 490 = 2027 + 1 = 2028

Looking at the prophecy this way, you find an exact match for (1) the crucifixion year, (2) the building of the second wall in 1537, and (3) the return of Jesus exactly 2,000 years after he left.

(I think counting from 1537 is correct. But could you count from the completion of rebuilding, 3 or 4 years later, as referenced in Wikipedia? That could take you to 2030, or 2031.)

Anther Prophecy – Babylon’s Punishment

In Jeremiah 25:12 it says Babylon is to be punished after 70 years, and everybody links this to the previous verse, in Jer 25:11,

I believe this is a dual prophecy, and the second part refers to Mystery Babylon (see Rev 17:5). The word ‘years‘ in Jer 25:12 simply means a division of time, not always single years. Often the division of time is in years, but the division of time in Jer 25:12 is quite possibly referencing Jubilee divisions of time!

How do I know?

The land was prophecied to be an everlasting waste. Has this fully happened yet? Maybe, but it’s debatable. Hillah, in Iraq, is a modern city of half a million people, and it’s only 11 kilometres away.

My main reason for believing this, is that the timing matches the Daniel 9 prophecy. Let’s calculate when ‘Babylon’ is to be punished, using 70 Jubilee divisions of time (usually translated as 70 years).

After 70 Jubilee Years

Jubilee years are counted starting from when Israel entered the promised land, crossing the Jordan in 1406 BC. Lev 25:1-12. (Again, you can get proof of this date elsewhere.) Which year does counting forward seventy 49 year blocks (as per Jer 25:12) from 1406 BC take us to?

70 x 49 = 3430 years. We must remember to subtract 1 to compensate for there being no year zero. Then I’m adding 1, because the Jubilee itself occurs on years following 49, so we arrive back at adding 3430 to negative 1406 (BC).

Answer: Counting this way, from start to finish, ends in the year 2024 AD, however, I still may have to add 1 again, as I don’t know if the event actually occurs on the year after or not, because the Hebrew calendar may begin the new year in October on Atonement 2024.

Six places in Revelation refer to the end time Babylon in symbolic terms, eg. Rev 17:5, & Rev 18:21. This mystery Babylon can primarily be identified as the USA, or, it may be a well known church! A number of books on this subject provide more details, claiming it’s the USA. The USA is a rich nation. Read Rev 18:11-13. Merchants trade with Babylon by ships. Read Rev 18:17,19. There’s more, but that’s also going down a rabbit trail, so I won’t get into it.

Suffice it to say, when the Bible prophesies about the fall of Babylon in the last days, it’s not really referring to the nation of Iraq. Mystery Babylon may be the USA, or it may include the whole world and it’s political and religious systems that go into tribulation.

The time frame fits into Isa 61:2 which indicates God’s vengeance comes at this Jubilee time period right after Isa 61:1.

Jesus quoted the first half of this in Luke 4:16-20, but he stopped half way through verse 2 before reading ‘the day of vengeance.’

Also, notice Isaiah 61:3 follows immediately after Isa 61:2, and it talks about beauty for ashes. Do the ashes come from a nuclear war?

Both Prophecies, and a Spiritual Entrance

Jubilee years started with a physical entrance into the promised land.

70 Jubilees later brings us to the final period of the Jubilee count, and perhaps when all the 49 year counts are complete (after 7x7x70), we may make a spiritual entrance into our promised land. (Go here for more multiplying by 7 examples.)

Seventy and multiples of seven show the perfection and completeness of God’s timing. If we were to use 50’s to multiply by, then seventy Jubilees would not end soon, but the end would have to come much too far into the future. Because there are so many other indications that show we are at the end of this age, it validates the timing.

I still have more details to clarify. But Revelation 10:7, ‘when the mystery of God should be finished,‘ surely includes the punishment of Mystery Babylon and Jesus’ return very soon.

If you’ve followed me through all this, you may be wondering how there can be two different end dates, both based on the Jubilee counting method.

They may both be correct!

Couldn’t God’s word give us a count to Jesus’ return, plus a count to the time of great tribulation for Babylon, or for the world, about 3 1/2 years before? Matthew 24:21, 22 and the whole of Matthew 24 tells you that this is something to watch for, and Matt 24:44 says to be ready… When have you expected these things to happen?

My guestimate – and it’s only a guess, and may be totally wrong, is that October 2024 is a possible month for wars to intensify, and bombs to drop. Seven months later (another 7) in April 2025 the two witnesses may begin a three and a half year countdown (Rev 11:3), and then, September 2028 is a possible date for Christ to return… This is only a guess that I’m making now, months away. It could come and go, with nothing happening. — On the other hand, the timing shows we are somewhere close to the verge of fulfillment for all end time Bible prophecies, and perhaps they may be fulfilled sooner than we think!

UPDATE VIDEO:

This video from the Redacted YouTube channel confirms the current situation.

USA to be Nuked – but when?

This is the most terrifying message I don’t want to see happen. But at least one Bible timeline researcher believes a nuclear attack on the USA WILL happen this year, in 2024.

Are they correct?

This is not my own dated prophecy. I do not have an exact date. I’m referencing some dates predicted by others, but the events come from the Bible first and foremost.

Zechariah’s prophecy

Let’s look at Zechariah’s prophecy of nuclear missiles to begin with.

In 2001 Michael Rood (A Rood Awakening channel) wrote a book called ‘The Mystery of Iniquity.’ In chapter 9 he describes how, in 2020, he came to understand the true meaning of Zechariah Chapter 5.

Zechariah describes an ICBM. It looked to him like a flying scroll, about 10.5 metres long by 1.7 metres in diameter. See Zech 5:1-2. Nuclear missiles have similar dimensions.

The flying scroll (nuclear missile) enters houses, or nations (the word ‘house’ can refer to a nation eg. Ezek 37:11), and consumes timber and stones, Zech 5:4. (A normal scroll is meant for reading; it’s not nearly that large, and it certainly doesn’t consume timber and stones!) It is described as a curse that goes over the whole land, so it could be that the missiles are sent towards Israel, but it also says the curse is sent towards those who swear falsely in God’s name, which to me sounds like those who print on their money ”in God we trust” which is the official motto of the United States.

In the prophecy there is ‘a woman in a basket,’ (Zec 5:7) but Michael discovered the translation for the word woman, shown here, is more accurately rendered as ‘fire’ or ‘fire offering,’ and the phrase is more accurately translated ‘a fire in a container.’

Zec 5:11 is unclear. Is it saying the missile base being referred to is in either Iraq, or Iran (the land of Shinar)? Shinar ”the country of two rivers” can mean Babylon, but in the end time ‘Babylon‘ may predominantly reference the USA, also a country of two main rivers.

Dan Larimer (more on Dan below) says a better rendering of verse 11 would be “And he said to me, to build a fire in the land of Babylon, and it shall arrive and be thrown down upon the ground.”

Dr. E. W. Bullinger says the number 24 is the number of Divine revelation. Given that Michael Rood unravelled this prophecy 24 years ago in about October 2000, and the destruction of the United States may happen in October 2024 according to Dan Larimer’s prophecy research I’ve mentioned below, which is 24 years later, it’s interesting!

The following is a very brief overview of various other probable references in the Bible to nuclear destruction in the end time.

Joel’s prophecy

Joel 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

Isaiah’s prophecy

Isaiah 17:14 At evening time, behold, there is terror! Before morning they are NO MORE. Such will be the portion of those who plunder us. And the lot of those who pillage us.

Isaiah 24 – the whole chapter. But at least read Isa 24:6.

Isaiah Chapter 33 “who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?” is speaking of nuclear fire, not hell fire as some may have supposed.

Jeremiah’s prophecy

Jeremiah 50 and 51. It says four times in these two chapters that Babylon’s destruction comes from the north.** Anciently, so far as I can tell it actually came from the east, but I could be wrong. However, if modern USA is primarily Babylon in prophecy, when you keep going north beyond Canada, you come to Russia.

Relevant nuclear destruction verses may be Jer 50:3, 9, 23, 29, 39, 40, 46. Verse 40 is especially telling.

Chapter 51 gets even more specific.

Jer 51:2, 3, 26, 29, 30, 32, 33, 37, 43, 57, 58, 62.

Daniel’s prophecy

Daniel 9 – last part of verse 26 (BSB) says: The end will come like a flood, and until the end there will be war; desolations have been decreed.

I’ve seemingly pulled this out of context, but it may actually be talking about this year, according to Daniel Larimer (who is the Steemit /BitShares /EOS Blockchain multimillionaire, and can be found on his YouTube: ByteMaster channel).

Dan has an alternate translation of verses 25 and 26. Details are here: https://bytemaster.medium.com/daniel-9-unsealed-the-rapture-timeline-and-the-covenant-with-many-revealed-1f9b90ae3ff8 It’s a very long study, plus Dan and I don’t necessarily agree about the timing of a rapture, and some other things, but Dan concludes that the prophecy is pointing to around the 9th of October 2024 AD. You can study it for yourself, and draw your own conclusions.

Jonah

The sign of Jonah appears to have been the two eclipses over the USA that most people have already forgotten. I don’t agree with everything Troy Brewer says (same with Michael Rood and Dan Larimer), but he was one of the YouTube presenters that explained his take on these events recently.

Amos

To save me repeating myself, I touch on some of the verses in Amos, where I speculate about the White House being destroyed, here.

Jesus’ prophecy

Revelation comes from Jesus, Rev 1:1.

Rev 6:12-14 describes nuclear war. Also, the whole of Revelation chapter 18 carries the theme that Babylon is fallen. This is clearly a modern Babylon, and it happens by nukes, in one day. Rev 18:8.

Zephaniah’s prophecy

I believe Zep 3:6 is a nuclear prophecy also.

In fact, there are even more Biblical books and places I haven’t yet mentioned, indicating nuclear annilation, and probably world war, as a result of ignoring God’s words.

If by now you’re thinking you need a place of safety, check this page.

Dumb Dogs

Isa 56:10 calls most of todays priests who wear collars that look like dog collars, dumb dogs. They should be warning people of these prophecies, but they refuse to bark.

However, having read this, the responsibility to act on the information is now yours.

You should not ignore this.

This digitally altered image is sourced from the Radio Church of God’s 1956 booklet called “1975 in prophecy.” The Booklet predicted a future world war iii. The church received a lot of criticism when nothing happened in 1975. However, seven is god’s number for finishing or completing things… When the booklet was published, It was simply a little under 70 years ahead of it’s time, and the title, “1975 in prophecy,” may turn out to have Been 49 years before, or 7 x 7 years in advance Of the actual year of fulfillment… On the other hand, nuclear war may still be delayed for a little while longer.

**In most modern English language countries, including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, any hostile attack would also most likely come from the north.

Speculation – Repentant Laodiceans?

The main message to Laodicea is in Revelation Chapter 3. You may already be familiar with it.

In the King James version it reads as follows, and in a Red Letter Bible it’s written in red, as are all the words of Jesus.

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

The Bible is a message from God in BOOK form, but it also contains short messages that include specific messages sent to you!

If you are part of Jesus spiritual body, then you are part of Jesus church in this end time, so this is also a message given from Jesus, and sent to you

Let’s take a closer look at this message. 

The rest of this post is pure speculation on my part, and may not be 100% correct.

The Laodicean message includes a call to repentance (verse 19). More than mere confession (like Catholicism teaches) is needed.

In my opinion, when they repent, Laodiceans become Philadelphians to whom Jesus comes quickly Rev 3:11 (It says ‘Behold, I come quickly‘ in the KJV, and Strong’s says it means shortly, without delay) even though verse 10 is addressed to those who have now passed away.

The brief message to Philadelphia is written in verses 7 to 12, as follows:

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Now please follow my train of thought.

The following verses all indicate that Philadelphia and Laodicea may do the work of the two witnesses in Revelation chapter 11.

The Philadelphians are given an open door… Rev 3:8 Jesus is the door. John 10:9. The two witnesses are also given an open door, in that no-one can stop their message. Rev 11:5

Christs followers are sent out to the world with power… Luke 10:19 The witnesses also have power. Rev 11:3 and Rev 11:6. In Rev 3:8 you can read the Philadelphians have “a little strength” but the word ‘little’ can alternatively be translated as a “brief, or short time” of strength (‘little’ is used this way in John 7:33).

They are sent as witnesses… Acts 1:8 Jesus is the true witnesses. Rev 3:14. Jesus’ truth can be in the mouth of two or more witnesses. Matt 18:16 or 2 Cor 13:1 and read Isaiah 43. Look at verses 7, 8 and 10 as follows.

Even every one that is called by my name (prophetically referring to churches of God?): for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes (this is a match with Rev 3:17), and the deaf that have ears (this is a match with Rev 3:22). (Could this refer to repentant Laodiceans?)

Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

For those who belong to Jesus, Jesus now lives inside them. John 14:18, John 14:20, Romans 8:9,10,11

Jesus is the Comforter and he comes into us through his Spirit. I have a more complete teaching on that subject here.

Witnesses for Jesus carry Jesus’ authority, not their own.

Time may prove me wrong, but I’m speculating that in Revelation 11 the ‘two’ witnesses that are given power (e.g. Rev 11:6) could be you and me, and all those who witness for the truth at the very end! Read About & Why for nicetiming here.

The number two may be symbolic. I realise many people will tell me the two witnesses are Enoch and Elijah and so forth, with other candidates, but I don’t buy that.

People say the church is not mentioned after Revelation chapter 3, but perhaps it is. Could Revelation chapter 11 refer to the last two church groups – Philadelphians and repentant Laodiceans?

Scriptures that Definitely Seem to Connect

Let me show you more matching verses about lampstands, about sleeping, and about anointing that seem to all correlate with each other:

Rev 1:20 says the 7 churches are 7 lampstands.

Matt 25:7 talks about ten virgin’s, who are church members that have been invited to Jesus wedding supper, waking out of sleep and trimming lamps just before Jesus returns.

Zech 4:1 mentions waking from sleep, and Zech 4:2 talks about 7 lamps. ***

Then Zech 4:14 says two of them are two anointed ones.

Laodiceans are told to anoint their eyes in Rev 3:18.

Rev 11:4 says two of the lampstands are two witnesses (see below regarding the two olive trees).

Putting these together, you have churches waking from sleep, trimming their lamps, anointing their eyes, and as anointed ones, witnessing for God.


*** The next verse, Zechariah 4:3, then goes on to talk about olive trees and olive oil. Some think olive trees represent Jews, and from that they deduce that the two witnesses are Jews and Gentiles, but that idea is very problematic. Are the two olive trees two churches, with the oil representing Jesus’ Spirit flowing through them? Did you know that Gethsemane, where Jesus was arrested, means Olive Press! It seems that Christ is the olive tree vine, and we are the branches – John 15:5. (Romans 11:18 etc is often misapplied to say Jews are the root, but it is referring to Christ. Romans 15:12.) Perhaps Christ is also the tree of life (Rev 22:2) from whose side the river flows, which is why the two witnesses can also be two olive trees (Rev 11:4) , and represent God to the world as God’s Spirit flows through them, symbolised by two branches and two trees. John 15:5.

(People can look like trees walking – Mark 8:24.)

Isaiah 61, the last half of verse 3, “that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

The American Dream is Dead

This brief post is about recent events in the USA.

The ship that crashed into the Baltimore bridge was called DALI.
Salvador Dali painted a picture in 1945 called the BROKEN BRIDGE and the Dream.

That’s interesting.

The bridge was named the Francis Scott Key bridge. Frances Scott Key was best known as the author of the text of the American national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

That’s also interesting.

Whether it was deliberate or intentional, the tie-ins to the collapse of this bridge are highly symbolic, picturing the imminent collapse of America.

Another possible link to the bridge disaster is a film produced last year by Barack and Michelle Obama, called ‘Leave the World Behind’ that included an out of control ship, followed by a nationwide power-grid down event.

In researching this, I found their NEXT production for Netflix is called Blackout!

I’m waiting to see if a real-life USA national blackout will happen next, or will it be some other Black Swan event?

I won’t say much more here about America’s downfall here, but I believe greater disasters are coming.

… The following few verses from the Biblical book of Amos come to mind:

Amos 3:8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

This lion roar fits into Rev 10:3, which I suspect takes place later this year in 2024, just before the seven thunders mentioned in the same verse.

Amos 3:15 And I will smite the winter house with the summer house; and the houses of ivory shall perish, (Ivory is white… This verse references White Houses – so I’m wondering, is this a duel prophecy applying to the end time?) and the great houses shall have an end, saith the LORD.

Another interesting coincidence is that the Whitehouse cornerstone was laid on October 13, 1792. This was 2331 years after the fall of Babylon. 2331 is 777+777+777. In other words, you could conjecture that Babylon was reborn when the White House was constructed!

Amos 8:3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.

Here Comes the Mark of the Beast

The Mark of the Beast, described in the book of Revelation, is not technology. It is about who you worship.

This is clearly seen in Revelation Chapter 14

9...If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation;
11...and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

On the other hand, how the Mark is ENFORCED does have to do with technology. You can see this here.

Revelation 13:15-18 (NIV)

15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 SO THAT THEY COULD NOT BUY OR SELL unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666. (Some translations say it is the number of man, other translations say it's the number of 'a' man.) 

Much can be said about the number 666. For example, it falls short of 7, which is God’s number of perfection. On one level, according to Ecclesiastes 3:18 the ‘beast’ is actually mankind, and just like the number of the beast where 6 falls short of 7, mankind falls short of God’s perfection.

However, a fuller explanation is, THE MARK of the beast is Satan’s trademark, as opposed to God’s sign. Satan is also the Beast (Rev 11:7) along with beast governments of men inspired by Satan. The mark puts paganism and pagan practices in place of worshipping the true God.

Pagan practices include gay parades, homosexuality, the abortion rights movement, Gaia mother earth worship, as well as all other things contrary to Biblical standards. However, Biblical prohibitions are not designed to oppress, but rather, to bless! – Rev 22:14-15.

The number 666 also relates to churches that promote a CLOSED Trinity. Instructions for God’s sanctuary in the Bible included a table of showbread holding only TWO rows/piles of SIX cakes of bread Lev 24:5,6. A total of twelve loaves, representing both Jesus, the bread of life, and God the Father. Churches that promote a closed trinity symbolically add a third pile of six cakes. The result is 3 piles of 6 cakes creating 666, the number of the beast! Rev 13:18. (More explanation about this here.)

Playing with numbers, 666 is 3×6 which =18. 18 is 1+8 which =9. Note that 9 is an upside down 6. It’s interesting that the Roman Catholic Church, which has more occult than Biblical practices, has deleted the second of the ten commandments (thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image) which leaves only 9 of the ten (although they split the last one, and change the fourth one).

There are other decodes of who 666 may apply to. I will not comment on them.

In Ezekiel Chapter 9, God protects those who sigh and groan over the perversions around them, and a mark is put on their foreheads. Those who don’t have this mark are destroyed.

Ezekiel 9:4-6 New King James Version (NKJV). 

4 and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” 5 To the others He said in my [] hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; [] do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.

A mark, and a sign both show something. The mark and the sign are both in peoples foreheads, because that’s where they think.

In the end times, the mark will most likely also involve persecuting those who keep the seventh day Sabbath. Ezekiel 20:12

For those who argue there is no command to keep the Sabbath in the New Testament, read Matthew 24:20, where Jesus, speaking about a time after his crucifixion, said: “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day.” Plus I count 10 other places in the New Testament that say to keep the commandments, and none that say there are only 9 of them.

In the end times, Sabbath keeping is a sign for those who have learned that the Sabbath was not done away with at the cross, and is still one of the commandments that is to be kept. (Revelation 12:17, 14:12, 22:14-KJV)

Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be A SIGN between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.

Exodus 31:13

Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the Lord, who makes you holy.

For those who dispute which day is the 7th day on the calendar, or argue we should keep a ‘lunar Sabbath’ there are proofs in nature that verify which is the 7th day. Bees and beavers for example. Here’s a a short video, and I found a half hour video available at https://www.desiremedia.org/

Revelation 7:3

Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Revelation 14:1

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the
mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand,
having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
(Also see Rev 22:4)

The signs and marks are also on hands, because the hands show our works.

Acts 7:41

And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
(Also see Mark 6:2 showing the good works and miracles of Jesus were the works of his hands.)

To Be Enforced

Buying and selling has a lot to do with enforcing the mark of the beast. The old Australian Bankcard (since replaced by Visa and Mastercard) had a 666 logo! – It had three 6’s… a yellow, orange, and red b.

At the time, it looked like it could be a way of enforcing the mark in the future. But technology has moved on.

Even so, buying & selling technology will be used to enforce the Mark (that is, Sunday observance) in the future.

It’s interesting to look at the tie-ins between the Bible’s mention of the number 666 and modern cryptocurrency technology.

For a start, crypto uses the Internet, which uses the prefix WWW for World Wide Web.. The sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Vav. Hebrew does not use W’s. The closest to WWW in Hebrew is VaV VaV VaV, which is the same as 666 in Hebrew. This is just an interesting coincidence, or perhaps not?

Another tie-in is 1 Kings 10:14

Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year
was six hundred threescore and six (666) talents of gold.

How’s this for an interesting connection… The secret society of Freemasons identify their beliefs and beginnings with King Solomon. Also note that the Masons use the symbolism of masonry trowels.

Now check out Stellar Lumens crypto payment system logo. As shown here, it consists of two masonry trowels, put one on top of the other to look like Saturn, the sixth planet from the sun! So because of the Freemasons, this cryptocurrency has a connection with 1 Kings 10:14 and King Solomon’s 666 talents of gold in the Bible – the only other place in the Bible that specifies the 666 mark of the beast number!

Could this be a clue to a future 666 tie-in?

It’s my educated guess that Stellar Lumens will be used in future to enforce the mark of the beast.

In the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games opening ceremony they play-acted ‘Stella’ soothing a sinister ‘beast’ and after a ‘bull run’ they showed a new world order with a different form of ‘common-wealth’ that is obviously predictive programming showing their future plans. Check out the replay on YouTube if you like.

The name ‘Stellar Lumens’ is also meaningful, as Stellar comes from the word star, and Lumens = light. Check out the word ‘Lucifer’ and you’ll find it means basically the same thing: light bearer and bright morning star. That’s essentially the name of the beast (as in Rev 13:17) if the beast is the devil, although as already noted, it also says the beast is the number of man OR a man.

Of course, other cryptos, such as XRP also have interesting logos.

To me, the XRP logo is showing “as above, so below.”

Here’s a video for anyone wanting to research these crypto’s place in the New World Order in more detail:

At the moment, the two main ISO compliant cryptos that can be used for cross border payments in the New World Order are XRP and Stellar. (ISO is a messaging standard for SWIFT. )

XRP may be the phoenix that rises out of the ashes of the huge economic crash that is ahead of us. But exactly when that will take place is unknown at this stage.

XRP is also likely to be the leading crypto in future because it was created by a company called Ripple.

Most people don’t know this, but in the minds of those who control us behind the scenes, money has to do with maritime law, and ripples are tied to the movement of water, and are therefore a part of maritime law. To understand what I’m talking about, watch this:

Electroneum is another crypto to watch. The 6 pointed ETN lightning bolt logo is another striking symbol (pun intended)!

Using any form of money, be it gold, silver or cryptocurrency is not wrong.

However, controlling who you worship, how you worship, and what day you worship on, by enforcing buy and sell penalties, IS wrong.

But I see it coming all too soon.

What about Bitcoin?

To me, Bitcoin is like this old car.

As an investment, I would be cautious. Here are ten reasons why:

1) Bitcoin is outdated technology.

2) Bitcoin is not scalable.

3) Transfers are very slow

4)Transactions are expensive.

5) It’s controlled by Chinese miners

6) Although not likely, it is subject to a 51% attack.

7) There is no real use for Bitcoin… As a store of value, there are much safer options.

8) It’s an environmental disaster… it takes 72,000 GW (or 72 Terawatts) of electricity to mine one Bitcoin.

9) Because of this, I believe there is a possibility of it being outlawed by the future one-world government which is on the horizon.

10) Bitcoin can easily crash and burn.

On the other hand, Ripple’s Chief Technical Officer, David Schwartz, was almost certainly one of the main developers of Bitcoin in the beginning, and may have been the main developer. Therefore, because of his influence, the people who pull the strings may keep Bitcoin alive and well.

Time will tell!

How to be Safe and Secure In a TIME of TROUBLE

There is a SECRET place of hiding and safety mentioned in the Song of Solomon, or Song of Songs in the Old Testament, in the Bible.

This book depicts the courtship and marriage of Solomon to a Shulammite woman. Possibly the term Shulammite identifies with Shulem, or Salem, and therefore possibly refers to a woman from Jerusalem.

Can you see a spiritual parallel here between the woman and the Church? In Revelation 21:9-10 the wife of Christ is a woman, and also Jerusalem.

"Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb." And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.

More Physical /Spiritual Parallels

There are a number of parallels in this book between the physical and the spiritual, and this may be one example.

Check this out. In Song 1:6 the woman says:

Look not upon me, because I am black (swarthy), because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.

This fits perfectly with Jesus parable about the workers in the vineyard in Matthew 20:1-16.

Matt. 20 Verse 1:

For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.

Skipping down to verse 12:

Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

The workers in the vineyard are members of God’s spiritual church depicted here. In Song of Solomon the workers are depicted as a woman. Notice both are caretakers of a vineyard, and have become sunburned from bearing the heat of the day.

Solomon depicts Christ.

Just as Solomon built the physical temple /house of God (see 1 Kings 5 &6) Jesus built the spiritual temple /house /church (see Matt 16:18).

Let’s move on to some end time prophecy in this book.

The Song of Solomon, and Where to Find the Place of Safety

In Revelation 12:14 the Bible talks about a special place of safety for the church in the end times:

And to the woman (God’s church) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (In the previous verse the church is being persecuted by the devil – the serpent – and she needs to flee from the persecution the world and the devil are inflicting.)

Would you like to know where the place is, that the woman flies to? A clue, to where the place of safety is, is given in The Song of Solomon. To recap, if this book is about Christ and the church, then Solomon represents Christ, and the woman is the church.

In Chapter 1:6 she is sunburned from bearing the heat of the day, which is also referenced in a parable in Matthew 20:12.

The setting for the last half of the Song of Solomon Chapter 2 is just after the winter Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24:20-21. Jesus, perhaps, made a duel prophecy here pertaining to prior 70 AD, and also the end of the age just ahead now.

But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved…

Is this a prophecy for prior to 70 AD, or could it refer to a future nuclear or volcanic winter – or both – with resultant ash drifting across the world, obscuring the sun, and causing a drop in temperatures and widespread crop failures?

Does speculating about the meaning of winter sound crazy? You are welcome to disagree. All I’m doing is looking at possible options, and saying the Bible is like a jigsaw, and this piece could fit here!

As an aside, when Jesus mentions “earthquakes in divers places” in Matthew 24:7 the word earthquakes can include volcanoes – the Greek word also means a commotion of the air.

Song 2:11 For, lo, the (nuclear or volcanic?) winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
Song 2:13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. 
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

In Song of Solomon Chapter 2 verse 13, the fig tree of Matthew 24:32 (the fig tree is a metaphor for Israel) has progressed in its season. In other words, Israel, a modern nation since 1948, has had plenty of time to mature. If this prophetic time setting is correct, look what happens next to the true followers of Jesus, Christ’s bride.

There Is NO Pre-Tribulation Rapture

For those who have been mislead by their teachers into thinking there is a pre tribulation rapture, understanding the following sequence will help you see this is false doctrine. Notice that when Solomon (symbolic of Jesus) tells his bride to arise and come away the winter (the tribulation?) is then finished.

Song 2:11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

Song 2:12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (dove) is heard in our land;

Song 2:13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. 

Arise (the New Living Bible says rise up), my love, my fair one, and come away.

If the church is ‘raptured’ THIS, and not before, is when it happens.

Matt 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh.

Also perhaps related:

Amos 8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.

In the Hebrew language there is a play on words here. The word for Summer is qayits, pronounced kahyits; and the word for end is qets, pronounced kates. So the verse is saying Amos sees a basket of Summer fruit, and it sounds like a basket of end fruit!

In case you need further proof that the ‘rapture’ doesn’t happen pre tribulation, study Matthew 13:24-30. Look especially at the time sequence in the last verse, where the weeds are destroyed BEFORE the wheat is gathered:

Let both grow together until the harvest. (See verse 39 - the harvest is the end of the world). At that time I will tell the harvesters: FIRST (Strong's G4413) collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.

In this parable the wheat is being harvested, which in Israel is in Spring, which coincides to the same time of year in Song of Songs where it says the Winter is over, and the woman is told to rise up. Both passages are talking about the harvest of the church at the end of the world.

Continuing in Song 2, verse 14 it says the girl (a metaphor for the end time church) is hidden in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs (or the secret place of the steep climb)… I believe this passage has a mainly SPIRITUAL meaning.

Song 2:14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.
Young's Literal Translation says "My dove, in the clefts of the rock, In a secret place of the ascent..."

1 Corinthians 10:4 explains more about the clefts of the rock:

"for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, AND THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST."

Psalm 27:5 has more about hiding on a rock:

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

Isaiah 44:8 (in the ASV and in many translations) : Besides God, there is no other rock.

This is where the true followers of Christ find their Place of Safety in the tribulation, or ANY TIME OF TROUBLE.

Psalm 91

He that dwelleth in the Secret Place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

– (Most likely this is the SAME secret place Song 2:14 refers to… Also see Col 3:3 – ‘For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.’)

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

________________

The Psalm continues, but I think that’s an interesting place to stop!

The Daughters of Jerusalem

Daughters of Jerusalem get a mention seven times in the Song of Solomon. .

Who are these daughters?

It may, or may not, be referring to churches who don’t marry Christ.

I’m not sure on this point. Jesus mentioned daughters of Jerusalem only one time.

Luke 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

However, elsewhere, seven daughters are referred to in Exodus.

Exodus 2:16 and 17 says the Priest of Midian had seven daughters. By the way, Revelation 1:20 and onwards addresses seven churches, who are, in a sense, seven daughters in Jesus right hand.

Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.

And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses (a type of Christ who delivers God’s people from oppression) stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.

Again, this possibly has more than one application, also being PROPHECY for the end time where the shepherds (the ministers and priests) drive the daughters (good church members drawing water which is a type of the Holy Spirit) away! If you are one of those ministers, God has a message for you here.

Even More Prophecy

Is there additional prophecy in the Song of Solomon? Possibly YES. More than I’ve covered here. For example, I think this one is interesting:

The BBE translation says in Song 4:7

"You are all fair, my love, there is no MARK on you."

This reminds me of Revelation 13:16-17.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the MARK, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

To be strictly accurate, other translations indicate Song of Solomon is talking about having no spot or blemish, rather than no MARK, but, to have the MARK of the beast surely would also be a blemish for a Christian, would it not?!

Here’s another Song of Solomon /Book of Revelation connection. Song 5:2 says

My beloved was knocking. 

This corresponds with Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

I’m sure there are other interesting things to be found in this book as well.

Concluding Verses, and Jesus ‘Nice Timing’

The Song of Solomon concludes with these words:

Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices.

This make haste statement aligns with the conclusion in Revelation 22, the last chapter in the Bible, which ends with these words:

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Revelation 22:12 makes it a promise.

Behold, I AM coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.

Jesus is coming quickly and his reward is SOON, but HOW SOON?

How Soon? Continue here …
