The line in this article that jumped out at me was this:
Jerusalem (AFP) - Palestinians torched a site revered by Jews in the West Bank in an incident that threatened to further inflame two weeks of deadly unrest, as fresh protests erupted Friday.
So there has been roughly two weeks of unrest? Go back two weeks on the calendar and where does that put us? In the neighborhood of that last blood moon on 9/28....Trouble for Israel has been brewing almost to the day of that last blood moon of the lunar tetrad. What makes those signs in the heavens special is they cannot and were not faked or twisted by the enemy or his servants. No, they really were blood moons and they really were on the Lord's Feast days and we really are in a Jubilee year right before another week of 7 years is to begin in the fall of 2016.
Once you get past Revelation 5, its all about Israel. Israel and the tribes of Israel are mentioned by name. Who or what is no longer mentioned by name? The Church. The Lord does not make mistakes nor does He forget to include nor does He make poor Word choices. If the Church was specifically mentioned in Revelation 2-3 then is no longer specifically mentioned and instead Israel and the tribes of Israel are called out by name, there is a reason for it....
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
Do you see the Church mentioned anywhere here ^^? No, its Israel and the tribes of Israel called out by name. A shift is taking place in this world back to Israel. If this is so, then what of the Church? Detailed instructions and warnings were given to us in Revelation 2-3. There is a Church among these 7 that is kept from the hour of trial that is before us. That Church was commended for the following things:
8I 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. 9Behold, 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. 10Because 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.
1. We keep His Word
2. We do not deny His name
3. We are patient
Simple enough. In a world that is anti-Christ to the core these ^^ things are not so easy to do
anymore and growing more difficult by the day but what they are not difficult to understand.
What is the Word of the Lord to us, the Church of Philadelphia? Keep His Word, do not deny His name, be patient. The Lord has set times and seasons for everything. Our time is almost up.
Ecc 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
It is time for Israel to step back up to the plate, the time for settling accounts is almost upon us:
Ecc 3:15Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.b
Daniel 9:24“Seventy ‘sevens’c are decreed for your people and your holy city to finishd transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.e
The Lord made a point to bring the Shemitah cycle to our awareness through brother Jonathan Cahn. The cycle is undeniable and has been punctuated on time, every cycle (including this one that just ended) since Jerusalem was recaptured by Israel in 1967. We are now in a Jubilee year and the next "seven" begins in the fall of next year, 2016. Why did the Lord bring the entire world's attention to the Shemitah cycle? Why did the Lord bring the world's attention to the lunar tetrad cycle on His feast days? Everything He does has a purpose and all of it works for our good.
It is the opinion/speculation of this nobody, slave of the Most High God that this Jubilee year is a year to get our affairs in order for the next 7 year period that begins in the fall of 2016. The Lord highlighted the Shemitah cycle and those blood moons for a reason, it is for us to figure out that reason. You have read this nobody's opinion/speculation, you be the judge.
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
