Prophet's TAble Blog
Say More About Quarter Four? Given the reality that we have officially crossed the 120th Jubilee, we need to understand how this will impact our world and our faith. As I have written in the two previous blogs, we are now 7 years into a new dispensation, and therefore have come to the first shemittah year within this new dimension. My role as a Prophet and Apostle is to simply declare this information first as the order of the Lord. What I have been shown and am to make known is that this new dispensation is for the restoration and the rise again of many of God’s chosen people. Therefore, this last dispensation, Quarter Four, is the time to restore. This is the allotted time is for the renewal of Zion. But perhaps the best name to claim over dispensation is the name Eliyah.
Malachi 4:5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord.”
It has been a long held belief within Judaism and among some Christians, that before the Messiah comes, an ancient prophet named Eliyah will be awakened and actually precede the Messiah. In the annual Jewish festival of Pesach (Passover), the Hebrews have long prepared their table for the expectation of Eliyah’s entrance. Both a chair and a cup of wine are named and claimed for this ancient prophet. Another words, a place for Eliyah has long been set and the anticipation of his coming is not new for the Jews. Many Seders (Passover celebrations) even will go open the door of their homes as an open invitation to this ancient man of God. I was at one such Seder about 12 years ago and I went to open the door and suddenly a mighty rushing wind simultaneously threw the door completely wide open. Every one in the room (including myself) stood wide eyed for the next minute or two. However, that event was actually before the 120th Jubilee, so we were not yet within the official dispensation of Eliyah. Today, as I as write, the timing is right. I must admit, I even feel empowered by this ancient Spirit of Eliyah to explain and confirm so that we may all learn what Adonai (Lord) is expecting from us all in this new dispensation. But first allow me to officially name and claim this new dispensation of time as the “Times of Eliyah”, and the “Time to Restore”.
The call in this new dispensation is to repair and restore via a new anointing. I can’t think of a better reason to officially start this season. Obviously our world has experienced a steady decline of ethics and a time of drastic moral decline. We are now officially in a spiritual state of disrepair, and thus everything on the planet suffers. Darkness is upon us and there are evil jezebel spirits sitting in all the high seats of every nation. Everything good has been tagged as bad and evil has become the cool fad. Obviously the need is real and the timing is right. We need help from heaven quick lest the earth be cursed even worse. Enter the Spirit of Eliyah, and even a whole new dispensation. However, this should also make us realize that the day of the Gentile has come full circle. We must understand that most nations, as we see them today, will never be recovered from this evil infiltration. At best, these will be broken into fragmented pieces and provinces. Therefore please understand that this new dispensation and anointing of Eliyah is not intended to preserve the unity in the United States or any nation, but will rather break them into separate regions. This has always been G-d’s way of defeating evil: by ordering division.
Genesis 1:4 “And God saw the light, that it was good; and he divided the light from the darkness.
Seven times in Genesis, the Creator speaks division in order to bring order. He ordered the division between light from darkness, night from day, evening from morning, heavens from earth, the land from the sea, the Shabbat from the week, and finally woman from man. Why? Because the earth was without form and void. The Hebrew word for without form and void is tohu, meaning that there were no clear boundaries and that everything was all mixed together. Effectively the creation was all comingled. Thus was it all void and dark covered. Sounds like things today. Even the bathrooms have become transgender and comingled. This woke generation of liberals and leaders may demand politically correctness by all, but that is not the call of Eliyah.
Matthew 27:46-47 “And about the ninth hour Yeshua cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is interpreted, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Some of them standing by that heard, said, This man is calling for Eliyah.”
Matthew, a follower of Yeshua, personally witnessed and recorded his crucifixion and death. In his book, written around 60 ad, Matthew records the last words of Yeshua as being a loud call of "Eli, Eli." He also recorded that many of those within the crowd of Israelis that watched this Roman execution also heard Yeshua cry out. They said he was calling for Elijah the prophet to come and rescue him. Perhaps this is because there was a 2500 year old belief that Eliyah the prophet would precede the coming Messiah. Again, this Jewish belief and concept is annually displayed in the Pesach Seder, via the cup and chair of Eliyah. Whereas every observant Jew then and now knew that Eliyah must precede the coming of Mashiach, very few Christians have ever understood this truth. Certainly I find almost none today with this expectation as part of their faith of the second advent of Yeshua. Nonetheless, I am here to address that Eliyah is today assigned his time and his season.
The men that followed this Rabbi Yeshua, after watching him be crucified, later testified that he arose three days later and appeared to them. Before he ascended into the heavens, these disciple of Christ (Christos is a greek word meaning the anointed) asked Yeshua if he would now restore the kingdom to Israel.
Acts 1:6-7 “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? Yeshua answered, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in His power.”
Effectively, Yeshua was answering a long standing expectation of his nation of restoration. All true Jews were imparted with this expectation and faith that the Creator of all the universe had chosen this particular people and nation to establish as His earthly kingdom upon. However, at that moment in history this chosen people and nation were standing on the threshold of a coming two millennia time of devastation and near annihilation. Ironically, much of the injury and harm that would come upon this nation and people would even come at the hands the gentile Christian church. From the crusades to the inquisitions to Martin Luther's anti-Semitic writings that were used as the auspice of Hitler’s final solution, the Christian church has blood on its hands. And that blood is Jewish blood, just like Yeshua’s was. Yet today we have officially crossed over into a new season and a new time, and now it is the Chrisitian nations and churches that seem to be falling into tribulation. Nevertheless, even as these followers of Yeshua two thousand years ago asked, I believe we will now see the kingdom restored unto Israel.
Again, the 120th Jubilee year back in 2016 was the timeline that christened the official end of the allotted gentile times, and initiated a whole new dispensation for the chosen nation. This is now that final period of time, or season which I call quarter four, the time to restore. It should also not be scripturally neglected how Eliyah was predicted to be connected. Certainly the early followers of Yeshua understood Eliyah’s role in this new dispensation, and they even asked him this pertinent question:
Matthew 17:11-12 “And his disciples asked him, why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? And Yeshua answered them, ‘Elijah truly shall first come and restore all things.”
Whereas most observant Jews have long known that Eliyah will be the forerunner of the Mashiach, most Christians do not today expect the same. However, Yeshua (as an observant Jew) confirmed to his followers that the scriptures do foretell the coming of this old prophet as a prerequisite of Messiah. He further detailed that Yohan the immerser (John the baptist) had come in this spirit of Eliyah to fulfill this scriptural requirement. The timing of the statement that Christ made was as Peter, James and John returned from the transfiguration experience where they saw Yeshua transfigure into a glorious state as both Eliyah and Moses appeared unto him.
Matthew 17:1-3 “ And after six days, Yeshua took Peter, James and John his brother, up to a high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them. His face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elijah talking to him.”
As this verse above is defining, we have now officially entered the last allotted period of time. As defined in this story, we are now within the sabbatical millennium. There has been 6 thousand years of history now completed and therefore we are entering the 7th century of time. The scriptures say that a day is as a thousand years with the Lord. So effectively, as we crossed the 120th timeline, going into season four (or the season of summer) we also entered the sabbatical millennium.
Again, we can see and say that Eliyah is connected to this last day. As defined by this transformation story, this will be the time of Israel’s glory. The main players of this transformation period will be Eliyah and Moses. These two ancient men of God will be the ministers assigned to this restoration time. Not only will there be a massive exodus out of the nations, but also the restoration of the allotted Holy Land. Then a full realization of the restored nation that Messiah was behind it all. Both the fall and the rise again of many in Israel.
Luke 2:34 “...behold this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel: and for a sign that shall be spoken against.”
Whereas most Chrisitians understand that Yeshua caused the fall of many in Israel, not many understand the second part of His calling. The rise again of many of His own is now the time we have entered. A transformation is now happening and the rise again of Israel is at hand. But again, the main players are Eliyah and even Moses.
Another important theme to not overlook in the transformation of Messiah is to realize how a little voice came out of the bright cloud. Given that I am living in Aotearoa (the Land of the Long White Cloud) further adds a dimension worth mentioning.
Matthew 17:5 While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear you him.”
So, this is what I need to say from this distant land so far away at the start of this last sabbatical day: Yeshua was, and is the Messiah of Israel. He is the One of whom the law and prophets foretold would save and restore the Jewish people. If you have never seen this truth, today is the day of "salvation" (Yeshua in Hebrew). Pray this simple prayer and invite Him into your hearts. Yeshua, you are the promised Messiah of Israel, come into my heart and save me! If you prayed that prayer, mazol tov, you are born again.
As we have now crossed the 120th Jubilee time line, we should understand that the third season of mankind has officially expired. However, a final period of time resides on the other side of this Jubilee time line. Since our generation puts so much emphasis on sports events, permit us to discuss these advents in such a parable. What I am saying is that three quarters of the game has now been played and we are now entering the fourth and final quarter. Interestingly enough, most Christian believers are unaware that a fourth quarter is yet to be played out on the court of our world. Just because most claim that Jesus is about to come back, doesn’t change the fact that a fourth quarter of time will now be used to restore the Jews. This last advent of time has been divinely planned to sub back in the first string of the King. Simply said, the Jewish people of our day must now get ready to play this last quarter of time. Again, this last period is for the restoration of God’s chosen nation which will effectively sub them back into world view to finish the times of mankind as the first string. In Isaiah’s prophesy, this word restore is actually the Hebrew word sub and details the need for a period of restoration for this persecuted seed.
Isaiah 42:22-23 “But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. Who among you will give ear to this? Who will hearken and hear for the time to come?”
Now before we go forward into this last quarter of time, let me first call the official timeout. That is to say that this 120th Jubilee is actually the buzzer sounding the end of grace upon the Gentiles nations, and the end of the allowed and allotted persecution of God’s chosen nation, Israel. Like a referee whistling the timeout between the four quarters of a sports event, these 40th Jubilees were likewise meant to be dividers of advents, or the four spiritual seasons allotted to mankind.
Records show that Abram was born in the year of the Rams’ horn, which was exactly the 40th Jubilee in Biblical history. It is evident that Abraham’s life both intersected and connected two separate advents. I am further convinced that his life was intended to signify and solidify both the end of one season of time while initiating a whole new period. But seriously, the way that God would insert Abraham between these two distinct dispensations of time was actually no game. Abram’s life was like a knife dividing time itself. This 40th Jubilee was ultimately a change of season for reason of the way that God intended to take away mankind’s sin. So it is true to say that Abraham actually became the timeout in the game that changed things. The boundaries of the Middle East would be changed and the inhabitants rearranged. Effectively, the Almighty called for this timeout, and without a doubt subbed in His new found friend. Isaac and Jacob would follow through into that next period as key players too. It was during that second quarter of time that the nation of Israel first began to shine and would formally run the courts of God. Still, there was not a total win, nor end of sin for all mankind.
As another 40 Jubilees of time drew near it again became clear that God was about to call another timeout. Once again, most of the main players would be subbed out and even led out from the sacred court of said Holy Land. Like Abraham, Yeshua’s ministry was precisely centered in between two completely different periods of time. It was no coincidence that as this Jewish Messiah came into His homeland, so too had the foreign power of Rome. Although all signs pointed to the fact, most Israelis turned their back on the realization that their nation was collapsing. Even as Yeshua continually alluded, Israel’s days of peace and prosperity were concluding. It was as if Messiah’s presence there was even invoking and promoting this timeout. Whereas Yeshua’s life was meant to be a sign that the times were changing, it was His death that actually divided the times and seasons of mankind. As a matter of fact, this Lamb of God surrendered His life precisely half way through the 80th Jubilee year and simultaneously as the season changing Passover shofar was sounded. At that exact moment in time, Winter had officially past and Spring had come at last.
Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.”
It was then and there, as Messiah was raised in the air, that humanity was exactly half way through the four predestined seasons (or quarters) of time. This official timeout actually brought about an opposite strategy which called for death on this 80th Jubilee to win the ultimate victory over the opponent of sin. So again, we see that this dedicated Jubilee would be a time when the Almighty would again change the season for reason of how He intended to bring about an eventually end to mankind’s sin.
Without a doubt, Yeshua’s life signified this ultimate timeout and brought about a new living way that would take away mankind’s sin. However, it was His death that actually sealed the deal and revealed this new day of salvation for all nations. Nonetheless, His infamous death also dreadfully signified the end of Israel’s time of grace and favor. Thus, it is important for us to discuss that they (the Jews) were also choosed to be used and abused for me and you (the Gentiles). This too must be viewed as a part of the death that was required in order for the life of the Gentile season to Spring forth. So, not only did Messiah become that distinct dividing line between life and death itself, but also was the dividing line between the time of the Jews and the time of the Gentiles.
Luke 21:24 “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”
Effectively, Messiah became that official timeout sign between the time of Israel and the time of the Church. But what most of Christendom has not come to understand is that this was only part of the plan. Certainly, Yeshua was alluding that He was including the Jewish sufferings into the purchase price of this time of grace upon Gentile nations. However, He also detailed the end of this period of sin as well. The word “until” in the above verse reveals a statute of limitations of the degradation allowed upon His chosen nation. But again, what so few of the Gentiles ever viewed or knew was the scriptural proof of yet one more period of dedicated time to restore Zion, and to bring the final victory against sin.
Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”
Once again, we should see that these 40th Jubilees were always intended to bring an end to mankind’s sin. As we enter this official timeout between the third and fourth quarters allow me to coach the Church about the necessity of repentance concerning anti-Semitism, both past and present. Permit me to also State that the reason for this next season is to sub back the nation and people of Israel into the public court opinion of favor and honor. In fact, this was likewise foretold to be Messiah’s role. So, as the time of the Gentiles now ends, Messiah will once again send the official timeout signal. Again the just completed 120th Jubilee was certainly this dedicated time of said sign. However, please see with me that it indeed signaled the rise again of many within Israel.
Luke 2:34 “Behold, this child is set for the fall and rise again of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be spoken against.”
Both Abraham and Yeshua were born to effectively be the Ram’s horn precisely on these 40th Jubilees. Thus their lives actually became the dividing line (or timeout sign) between the times of mankind. Whereas Abraham came between the seasons of Fall and Winter, Messiah became the dividing line between the time of Winter and Spring. To again use the analogy of a sport event, each Servant was sent to be a timeout between these predetermined four quarters of this great event we call life. Certainly one time was out, but another time was actually just beginning. So, try to see that as Messiah was lifted up on the tree, a new time began for me and the Gentiles make three.
This time of the Gentiles, which can be identified as the third quarter of mankind, is perhaps better identified as Spring. However, this season of Spring likewise had an allotted period of time even applied to it from its inception, and therefore has a distinct connection to this current 120th Jubilee. In fact, Messiah taught that when we see the fig tree (Israel) come back to life and again begin to grow, then we should know it primarily shows that a final season of Summer will next begin.
Luke 21:29 “Behold, the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.”
The majority of Christendom today have no thought in their head that another season of time possibly lay ahead. Most believers repeatedly say that we are all the way out of time today. In this saying, they are actually only three quarters right. That is to say that a fourth quarter of time is yet to be played out. Nevertheless, as we now stand upon this 120th Jubilee line, the days of grace upon the Gentile nations are now over. Definitely, an official timeout is what this last 120th Jubilee was all about. To officially change the season, and for this reason am I involved. However, allow me to announce to all spectators that this is not the end of the world, just the end of the third quarter.
When I was a senior in high school we had a very little football team with even less talent, it seemed. Our coach was quick to realize that our lack of size and ability was a disability that called for a different game plan. From the first day of practice coach told us that the media had predicted us to come in last in our district. Thus he revealed to us a strategy of victory at last. He commissioned us to be a fourth quarter team and to commit to never quit no matter what the score going into quarter four. We prepared by becoming the best fit within all the district, and set our goal to never lose that critical last period. Although most teams did outscore us during those first three quarters, we knew all the way through that the last quarter would be our time to shine. By endurance and self determination, each weekly game became a fourth quarter event when we would vent our frustrations on our critics, and bruised our opponents until everyone left the field respecting our zeal. The fourth quarter became our team motto and even our battle cry. When that last second of the third quarter expired, we became inspired that it was now our dedicated time. With a loud shout, we came out of that timeout and showed our opponents a brand new zeal as we reentered what was now our field. Simultaneously, we held our hands to the air with four fingers raised as a sign of our eagerness and aggressiveness to dominate this time. We knew we were in better shape and had prepared ourselves primarily for this last period of “our time of victory”. Even from the beginning of the season we had predetermined that this final fourth quarter was the reason we came to each game. Whereas we may not have actually won many games, I can honestly say that we never left the field defeated, and totally owned that zone of time know as the fourth quarter.
Thank you for allowing me to use my football parable to help explain this fourth period of time of which Zion has been long preparing for. I realize that most Christians today believe that the end of the game is near indeed, and will have trouble hearing me. I suspect many might even speak against this timeout sign of which I have been assigned. Whereas modern day believers are quick to see the signs of our times, still most identify this coming timeout buzzer as that final trump before they go up. It is true that the time of the Gentiles is officially expiring, but we will be forced to stay and play a supporting role in this final fourth period, as foretold. In fact, this next season is for reason of correcting false Christian teaching, while restoring respect to the Jewish people and nation. Again, the mainstream Christian teaching of the end times has defined that they are the ultimate winners in the theology game and thus claim an escape before the apocalypses date. Most Christians even further say that Israel must stay behind to be refined by this tribulation time. In all reality, this doctrine is simply that old serpent’s poison of replacement theology. These 2000 year old lies today still try to claim that the Jews had their day, and that God took them out of the way, and they (the Church) are now God’s chosen. Today, the residual of this replacement theology still poisons Christianity to believe that God is indeed again finished with them (Israel). This blindfold that has historically been over the fold of the Church even has some Christian Zionists still believing that we are to be quickly leaving. Thus they currently ignore this quarter four that is designed to restore even more of the returning people and nation of Israel. As if The God of Israel would bring back the land and a large portion of the dispersed Hebrews from all over the Earth to next vex them in a seven year apocalypse. In all truth, this is a terrible lie that today collides with the real heart and plans of the Son of Man.
Acts 3:20-21 “And he shall send Messiah, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”
If I understand these scriptures correctly, this next season will be one in which Messiah draws near to the Earth first, and effectively sets up a tabernacle (sukka) in the atmosphere of our world. In effect, He will next take over that room where the sun and moon reside during this next time, and will from there begin to show great signs. Thus, above us, Messiah will be saying to us, “It is time to restore.” Furthermore, because the Church has disregarded this edit and prophesy of “the restitution of all things” for the land and people of our great Coach, this next season will be needed for that specific reason. That is to say, this next period of time is scripturally defined as when the nations begin to view Israel in a different light, and find it right to be reconciled for their history of atrocities. This is that defined “time of refreshing” for Israel, and “repentance” of the nations as Messiah’s presence draws near into our atmosphere.
Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
So please, open you spiritual ear to hear the truth of this 120th Jubilee blast. Fast, open your heart to understand that this next part is to officially start an amazing time of refreshing allotted unto Zion. But also be aware that this timeout signifies the end of the time of grace upon the Gentile nations, and thus the start of a sincere time of repentance given to us.
During the Jubilee year of 1217, a Jewish Rabbi named Judah Ben Samuel brought forth prophetic revelations about future Jubilees which eventually came to pass with amazing accuracy. Rabbi Samuel predicted and described 10 future Jubilees which he detailed would precede and usher in the Messianic age of Israel. This prophetic Rabbi Samuel declared that the start of these 10 Jubilees would be noted by the Ottoman Turks invasion and capture of Jerusalem. He further stated that the Ottoman rule over the Holy Land would last for 8 Jubilees, or 400 years. Exactly two hundred years later, and again on a Jubilee year of 1577, the Ottoman Empire indeed captured Jerusalem and ruled over the Holy Land for the next 400 years. As predicted, these 8 Jubilees were perfectly fulfilled as stated by Rabbi Samuel, who was also known as Judah he-Hasid (Judah the Pious). Rabbi Samuel further predicted that the beginning of the 9th Jubilee would be marked by the end of the Ottoman’s rule over the Holy Land.
Again, to the exact Jubilee year, the Turks were defeated in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby. Immediately thereafter, the Balfour Declaration of 1917 became the British mandate to petition this conquered Ottoman Empire into what today is recognized as modern Israel and the surrounding nations of the Middle East. All this had happened exactly on the Jubilee year of 1917, even as prophetically declared by the 12th century Rabbi. Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel further stated that during the 49 years of this 9th Jubilee, the Holy city of Yerushalayim would be deemed as “no-man’s land”. Again in perfect fulfillment, the League of Nations reserved a strip of land though the middle of city of Jerusalem. Neither the returning Israelis to the west, nor the Jordanians to the east had claim to this sacred strip of ground. As foretold, from the Jubilee year of 1917 even until the Jubilee year of 1967, this narrow strip belonged to “no one”. Even after Israel’s 1948 War of Independence, this strip of “no-man’s land” stayed as such until exactly the next Jubilee year of 1967.
The 10th Jubilee year, of which Rabbi Samuel referenced, was undoubtedly one of great restoration for the nation and people of Israel. After 1900 years of Gentile captivity, Jerusalem came back into the possession of the Hebrews. The significance of this single event should not be overlooked. Yerushalayim has long been the crowning jewel in the hearts and on the minds of this chosen people, and the center piece of the Jewish faith. Even during the 1900 years of exile, the Hebrew remnant annually voiced their expectation of returning to this sacred city in the Passover rendition of “Next year, Yerushalayim”. Even as Rabbi Samuel had prophetically declared some 750 years prior, this sacred city of David was liberated by the Israeli Defense Forces exactly on the Jubilee year of 1967.
For me personally, it becomes undeniable that Rabbi Samuel was a servant of the Most High who had been given remarkable heavenly insight, of which history now confirms as right. This prophetic Rabbi was described by his peers as being a man of abstinence who was dedicated to joyfully praying for end of the Diaspora and the reestablishment of his nation and homeland, to thus prepare for the coming Messianic age of Israel. It is important, therefore, to acknowledge that these 10 Jubilees were effectively a hope filled timeline detailing the conclusion of the long period of persecution upon the dispersed Hebrews around the globe. Certainly, the recovery of the land and rebirth of the nation would be key to see the Jewish people finally live in safety, security and perhaps even prosperity
.Luke 21:24 “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”
The liberation of Jerusalem on the Jubilee year of 1967 truly was an amazingly significant event. Even as the scriptures of the Brit Chadashah (New Testament) detailed, this one event was meant to signify a brand new season for the Jewish people. After 1900 years of Diaspora and persecution in every nation of our world, the long bruised Hebrews have gained the right to fight for their own survival via the reestablishment of their nation of Israel. Whereas the recovery of Jerusalem after nearly two centuries certainly signified a new era beginning for the Jewish remnant, it was also meant to indicate “the times of the Gentiles fulfilled”.
So, what does this mean exactly for you and me who might be Gentiles? One thing we must now take into account is that we have now officially crossed over into this 10th Jubilee period, of which Judah the Pious foretold would be the beginning of the Messianic kingdom for the nation and people of Israel. A prelude to the reestablishment of any kingdom would first be the recovery and restoration of the land itself. Therefore, the first thing we (the Gentiles) must not do is interfere in this restoration process of which a Jubilee event is sent to do for Israel. In fact, as we can now look back at the last two Jubilees and conclude that these events (Jubilees) were meant to bring back the physical land into the hands of the Hebrew remnant. It therefore should not be misunderstood that this last past Jubilee year of 2016-17 should have followed trend and again brought restoration to the land and nation of my vocation. Looking back now at this last Jubilee we can see that as Donald Trump was therein elected, he supported this idea of Jubilee with two policies that furthered Israeli land rights and holdings. First Trump announced the U.S. support for Israeli rights to the Golan heights. This was a very positive act right on this Jubilee's timeline. Furthermore, Trump saw to the building of the U.S. Embassy in the area of no man's land inside the city of Jerusalem. By so doing, Trump was showing America's support for Israeli sovereignty over this long contended for area of Jerusalem. This is interesting, see that Trump's very name means Jubilee or (a Ram's trumpet) in Hebrew. These ram's horns (trumpets) are blown at the beginning of each Jubilee year as a prophetic proclamation of both Jewish land and inhabitants returning. However, President Trump would later make a historical mistake that would try to take away Jerusalem. More on that later.
Leviticus 25:10 “And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto thee; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.”
Even as this scripture long ago detailed, Jubilee years have historically been significant events in which both the land and families of the Jewish faith are returned and liberated. The last Jubilee year was actually the 120th of all history. It is no mystery that the number 12 is very symbolic of a season completed. So what just finished you ask? The Times of the Gentiles. Perhaps you have noticed the shift of late? Does it seem that the nations are going mad? And what's up with Joe? Did you ever think you would see that as the American President? It is painfully obvious if you allow your self to see, that the time of God's grace on the nations has expired. However, a new beginning lays ahead and there is something “Great” that is also transpiring even as the time of the Gentiles is expiring. As we pass this 120th Jubilee year, the stage of our world is been being set for what will come next: “Greater Israel”. Many of the Arab nations surrounding Israel are suddenly on fire and seemingly destroying themselves prior to this 120th Jubilee. In fact, the once powerful nations of Egypt and Syria are now in a serious state of chaos and turmoil. Why, you might timely ask? Because a great Jubilee (the 120th of all history) is today at hand which demands Israel’s boundaries to be fully realized. Whereas, I hate seeing the reality of what these wars in the Arab world are currently doing (especially to the children thereof), I suspect Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan will be next. Oh, and let me not forget to submit how New Zealand also fits into what is coming next in the Jubilee plan of the restoration of Israel’s land.
Isaiah 41:5 “The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near and came.”
What so few people today consider is that these events are transpiring in perfect alignment with the biblical diagram which The God of Israel has detailed concerning the land boundaries of Greater Israel. As this current Jubilee cycle daily proceeds, so too should we expect more problems for these Arab regions within Greater Israel, and even a drastic change as far away as New Zealand. Nevertheless, let us also address that Greater Israel, once realized, will actually be greater for the Arab or Gentile people of these troubled areas than for Israel itself. That is to say, Israel must next occupy this entire biblically defined region for the sacrificial reason of extending peace and prosperity even to the Arab peoples thereof, who are being rocketed from above by their own leaders.
Leviticus 25:10 “And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”
This current Jubilee cycle is indeed defining a new time for this long distressed area. In fact, even as Rabbi Samuel predicted in this 10th Jubilee, Messiah is already revealing himself to the inhabitants of this troubled region. Many of the Arab people are having dreams of a man they are calling “the pierced one”. Truly this is the beginning of something “Great”. However, do not make the mistake that most Christians make by stating, “this is the end”. Contrary to most Christian doctrine, this next era could be a reasonably lengthy time which is meant to bring extensive restoration and salvation to Zion. Whereas it may indeed be the end of the Gentile’s period of grace, may the true believer today now embrace Messiah’s coming time of grace upon His own chosen race. I fully realize this is not your normal Sunday school teaching, and will be far reaching for most; especially the New Zealand part. Nevertheless, for those who have a heart to learn, I have been instructed to confirm these new seasons of Jubilees that will bring release to the land of the Middle East, and then the families of the chosen seed. Therefore, from the far removed location of New Zealand, I am excited to take the liberty to say, “Restore, ten more”.
Daniel 9:21 “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”
Rabbi Samuel prophetically detailed there would be 10 Jubilees that would lead to the end of the suffering of the Jewish people. He further stated that the last Jubilee of these 10 would bring the end of the Gentile captivity of the city of Jerusalem. The prophet Daniel likewise prophetically saw a coming cycle of 10 Jubilees of which he said would start with the liberation of Jerusalem. In effect, these two prophesies are thus progressive, as Rabbi Samuel’s leads and Daniel’s follows. If combined they give us a total of 20 Jubilees of time prophetically outlined, with the capture of Jerusalem being the dividing line. Given the reality of Jerusalem’s liberation on that dividing line of Jubilee in 1967, we actually are finished with that first Jubilee cycle of which Daniel was shown. So, after this last Jubilee year of 2016-17, I actually only have the liberty to say, “Restore 9 more”.
Daniel’s visitation from the angel Gabriel outlined a timeframe of seventy weeks which has been interpreted by most Jewish Rabbis as a period of time containing 490 years. In effect, this 70 weeks (or 490 years) can therefore be detailed as 10 Jubilee cycles, given the fact there are 49 years per Jubilee. It becomes important therefore to view Daniel’s 70 week prophesy in the timeframe of 10 Jubilees. Since this defined restoration time was detailed to begin upon the pivotal recovery of Jerusalem (which actually happened on the last Jubilee year of 1967) we must consider it as applicable for our time. It can further be said that Daniel’s prophesy actually picks up where Rabbi Samuel’s ended, on that pivotal Jubilee year of 1966-67.
Daniel 9:25 “Know therefore understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks and threescore and two weeks.”
Most Christian teachers, in their haste to escape before any end time refinement period begins, have allowed a “copy and paste” explanation of Daniel 9 to satisfy their closed minds. These Christian scholars have taken the historical event of Israel’s return from Babylon and have added on the time when Messiah first came to explain Daniel’s 70 weeks. However, this does leave off exactly one week to be complete. So, these Christian guides had to compromise, and are still waiting with even greater haste to tape and paste that last week of tribulation onto the nation of Israel. Whereas this scripture was certainly applicable to Messiah’s first coming, I submit that it actually better fits His second advent. Allow me to explain.
After the recovery of Jerusalem on the Jubilee year of 1967, a major expansion period in Israel began. This last Jubilee cycle, which is now complete, has resulted in the largest period of growth and construction ever realized in the nation of Israel, and the city of David. Even if every stone and brick of every previous generation were together heaped, it could not compete with the recent construction of the last 50 years. Simply said, a major restoration of this chosen nation has certainly happened during the last Jubilee period that is without compare. This really should not be a shock to any real scripture reading, heeding believer. As a matter of fact, the book of Daniel instructs to us to “know and understand” about this issue of the restoration of the Israeli homeland. But not only does this verse amazingly detail the recovery and reconstruction of Jerusalem in the timeframe of Jubilees, it further splits this renovation time into two distinct times. This amazing verse further reveals a distinct connection between these two ages of restoration, to that of the revelation of Messiah.
Daniel 9:25 “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks.”
Even as Rabbi Samuel predicted, the Messianic age for Israel was ordained to begin at the liberation of Yerushalayim on this pre-defined 10th Jubilee. Amazingly, Daniel’s prophesy of 10 Jubilees actually picks up exactly where Rabbi Samuel’s ended and likewise details the liberation of Jerusalem as the beginning of the Messianic age for Israel. Thus, please hear us when we today have the great grace to say, “Restore 9 more”.
Whereas that last pivotal Jubilee year (1966-67) certainly signified the end of the Gentile captivity of Jerusalem (just as both Rabbis predicted) most Gentile nations around the globe remained opposed to this Jewish control of Jerusalem. America’s Roadmap for Peace Plan has demanded for 50 years that Israel surrender that sacred little strip of land that was once called “no-man’s land”. This demonic agenda taken up by virtually every Gentile nation around the globe has told the returning Hebrews to stop their reconstruction, and even demands the dismantling of settlements within their own God-given lands. In this revoking, the nations were poking the apple of God’s eye, and thus provoking Adonai to draw nigh. In fact, this is the critical event that leads to Messiah’s second advent. However, the revelation of “Messiah the Prince” will not be rewarding for these Gentile nations, and will further disappoint many Christians’ expectations. The proof of this statement is in the Hebrew word choice of the coming Messiah as “Mashiach Nagid”.
This is not a reference to the gentle Jesus of which the Christians have personally come to know and thus expect to reshow. Whereas I realize there is only one Messiah, still His next revelation will be so drastically different that many believers are actually not prepared to see it. Daniel’s terminology of this coming Messiah describes a kinsmen Redeemer who will aggressively stand for His own personal clan and demand the continued restoration of this chosen people and nation. This revelation of the Jewish Mashiach is further detailed to only draw near to the Earth first with a rod of iron in hand to demand another lengthy season for reason of restoring all things. The book of Acts references this next period when “the presence of the Lord” brings refreshing and causes repentance.
Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
This prophetic scripture in Acts further tells us that the heaven above (better described as the world’s atmosphere) will contain Messiah until everything is restored and reconciled. Certainly this scripture is detailing the restoration of Israel and the demand of God upon the Gentile nations to make amends for the centuries of anti-Semitic acts.
Acts 3:21 “Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”
It becomes evident (if you allow it) that Rabbi Samuel and Daniel are definitely two of the prophets of which this verse in Acts has referenced. With that said, let us take a very sincere look into Daniel’s prophetic 70 weeks and consider it highly relevant for our time. As detailed from the angel Gabriel, this 490 year period of restoration was to be divided into two separate seasons, detailed as 7 weeks and 62 weeks. This first period of 7 weeks can also be considered as one Jubilee cycle (7 weeks x 7 days = 49 years). If we consider Daniel’s prophesy to be applicable for our generation, we will further realize that we are only nearing the completion of the first cycle of restoration within the nation of Israel. As it is written, a lengthy period of 62 weeks is next required to complete this prophesy of restoration for the nation of Israel. In fact, this next phase of time might best be defined as a “highway” rebuilding time. The rebuilding of that highly sensitive and controversial area of the temple mount will now come about even as the high Gentile nations simultaneous fall.
Daniel 9:25 “…and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.”
Again, this is likely not the end of the world, just the end of an era (and perhaps error). Even though you may have been told by your old respected Christian leader, I challenge you as a reader, to see these prophesies of the end times with Jubilee in mind. I further challenge you to open your eyes to the times of restoration that are now happening for Adonai’s chosen nation. Nevertheless, Daniel does address that after both the 7 week and the 62 week periods of restoration for His nation are complete, then (and only then) will the last one remaining week indeed come last and fast. This prophesy of Daniel’s last week describes how this restored city of Jerusalem, and the rebuilt temple of God therein, will once again be invaded and desecrated.
Daniel 9:26-27 “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself, and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary…And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week…”
This remaining week perfectly fits in a natural progression and order of time to complete Daniel 9’s prediction of 70 weeks. In other words, first came the initial 7 weeks which began on the Jubilee year of 1966-67 and ended on the Jubilee of 2017. Next began the 62 weeks of Israel’s age of restoration that will last 434 years and will effectively consist of 9 Jubilee cycles. At that point in the distant future, exactly 483 years of the total ordered 490 years (or 10 Jubilee cycles) will have been restored to Israel as scripturally detailed. However, there will remain one last week of trouble, even as Daniel was informed and warned. This one week is that 7 year time most Christians identify as the tribulation period.
I realize that most Christians will have trouble hearing or reading this explanation. But please ask The God of Israel for yourself if He is done restoring Israel. Also identify that replacement theology lie which has long said, “God is finished with Israel.” On the contrary, there could still be a lot more time to come and restoration to be done. The signs of Jerusalem coming back into Israeli control (as foretold from old) precisely on Jubilee should be enough to cause a new discussion on Daniel chapter 9. But perhaps the biggest clue that should lead you to question these end time Christian doctrines is that of time itself. Since when does time stop and start in three different parts? To the contrary, Daniel’s 70 weeks are today flowing in a normal systematic progression of time without interlude, or thus the need of tape or glue from me or you. Again, the mainstream Christian teaching of Daniel’s 70 weeks asks you to accept an explanation that tapes and pastes events from two separate advents and three different dispensations. This historical mistake (of tape and paste doctrine) is likely a result of Christians’ haste to escape the final week of tribulation. It further is the result of centuries of replacement theology which continues to refuse to embrace these amazing days of rejuvenation for HaShem’s chosen nation.
I may not can change the hardened and seasoned Christian thinking on this issue, but I do anticipate that soon the Messianic Jewish community will separate from that “tape and paste” mistake that Christianity has long made. If they soon do, they may be moved to participate in nine more restoring Jubilees. So one last time, hear me when I say, “Restore 9 more.”
Nevertheless, let us truthfully address that many believers today are missing perhaps the greatest events of which the world will ever experience…the restoration of God’s people and nation, Israel.
