Mark of the Beast
Growing up in the Bible belt of Texas in the 70’s, I became quite familiar with the term “mark of the beast”. Looking back, I realize now how that specific time in history seemed to delineate a great separation between an old millennium standard of faith and Bible knowledge, and the new modern secular culture we have now become. Life in the previous period was simple, logical, and time-filled. Today’s world is technical, difficult, and timeless. Living in this new secular world without time, I fear that most people have no idea what the Scriptures have warned our generation about. Without this Biblical knowledge of what is at hand, many people could be in dire danger.
Revelation 13:16-17 “And he causes 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.”
So, just what exactly is the mark of the beast, and are we near to seeing it revealed?
God is a Farmer
I am a farmer. My father was a farmer, and his father was a farmer. So too does the King of Jews choose to reveal himself to this world. The proof of this statement is backed by His many scriptural references to agriculture. Growing up on a West Texas cotton farm, I first believed God was the original cotton farmer. For Messiah said, "the fields are white and ready for the harvest." Only a cotton farmer could truly appreciate the beauty of a years worth of work manifested as a snow white field of fiber. Yeshua, aka Jesus, also taught that He was the sower of good seed. Therefore, I saw the need to believe in Him as "farmer friendly" as I planted my fields in hope of a great white harvest. Later on, I entered the livestock industry and became a cattle and goat farmer like my grandfather had. Then I read a scripture about an end of time scenario where God will sort out the goats and slaughter them because of their stubborn nature. Believe you me, that verse speaks truth. I can't recount the times I was horned and rammed by those damned goats. Over a decade ago, Farmer God spoke to me to sell my farm in Texas and move to New Zealand. Coming here first on vacation, I saw this land so grand from the eyes of a farm boy. Wow, how many cows can it carry? And man, just look at those green fields of roaming white fiber. Sheep, sheep, and more sheep. Something I had never tried, but the One pierced at side had said, "Do not dread, you are my sheep here led." Then I read, Yeshua was the Lamb slain who overcame my sin and fear.
So why shouldn't I move here?
Ladder Behind Door Four
As the fourth door opened and the davar of the nations began, I saw a brand new land. At first a very narrow hall that stripped all my pride as it pierced me at my side. With ladder stairs descending and all my theology ending, I came into a place of safety and grace. Then a psalmist stood upon this ladder of wood and gave me a secret that I had not understood. The noisome pestilence and arrow of war will not come behind door four. Then a cloud came and honored his claim and covered His name. With ladder at hand, a man was united with his clan. They came with loins of shame and coins of gold even as the scripture foretold. Many years were added, and the man became old. Then the mighty angel who held the safe door open during the great reset, took the unbelieving to the place of disgrace and regret. There they heard the final word on the matter. Yeshua HaMessiah was the Ladder.
Don't Be Mixed Up, You are Fore-Given
Adonai told Jeremiah that the days would come when He would make a new covenant with the whole house of Israel, and that this new covenant would not be according to the old one that framed evil via the written laws of Moses.
Jeremiah 31:31 "Behold the days come when I shall make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day I took them out of Egypt, which covenant they broke.
Effectively, the written laws of Moses were never expected to be an eternal covenant. Perhaps because of the actual impossibility of even the best intending men, to fully keep all these laws all the time. Perhaps these laws of the former covenant were only meant to bring us to this new covenant of which Jeremiah was informed would some day come Israel's way.
This new covenant was fore-told to be one by which the G-d of Israel freely forgives all the sin and wrong doing of the inevitable transgressors of these external set of Mosiaic laws, regardless of you status or sin. This is what "fore"giveness means. To be given before you earn or deserve it.
The old covenant was in total opposition to this fore told new covenant. In order for you to see G-d's goodness, you had to first to good. However, those days are now suppose to be over, and a new eternal, faultless covenant of grace taking its place.
This new covenant more accurately reflects the heart of the grace-filled heavenly Father as one that gives freely first to His children, who then in return learn His greatest attribute. Once we truly experience His grace we also gain the ability to forgive others and can finally become friends to G-d and His creation.
However, most sin prone people are afraid to draw near to Him. Perhaps this is the one true sin of the religious self righteous that have falsely represented that the breakers of Moses' laws are condemned of G-d. False, not true
This is a classic religious mistake that is not in keeping with the new covenant of which Jeremiah was foretold would come. Ironically, much of Christianity who say they believe in the new covenant are also very prone to lean back into the condemnation of these old laws of the previous covenant. These new covenant beneficiaries should not mix the old and the new together. You cant expect the old wine-skins to contain this new wine. As born again new covenant Christians, we must never return to an expired and faulty covenant. That just mixes up everyone. Let forgiveness be the one and only eternal covenant by which we all can see and know Israel's God from this day on.
Jeremiah 31:34 "...for they shall all know me, from the least to the greatest, says Adonai: For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."
Yeshua single handedly kept all the laws of Moses and then was crucified as a transgressor of these laws in order to instate the new order of G-d giving to you first. All you have to do now to enter into this new covenant with G-d is to accept this free gift of grace. Simply pray this way:
Yeshua, I accept you as G-d's gift of grace and ask you to forgive me all my sin and come in to my heart.
Spare me the drama, please....
The terrible day of the Lord is now at hand. World war will take down the nations at peace as a terrible sword is being released in the spirit realm. Earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis are now going to become dramatically increasing in magnitude and attitude simultaneously. In addition, much pestilence, famine and disease will grow rampid and resistant. Even the wild beast will increase to the tipping point of killing large numbers of humans. The bible details all these things in a climatic old scroll named Revelation. The aforementioned and foretold events are all noted as beginning stages of the opening seals that reveal the name of Salvation, and to reinstill the fear of the Lord upon humanity. Read Revelations chapter 5 And 6 if you think me be all drama....
If you read Revelation 5, then you would see this old book or scroll written that is denoted as the outline for this now time of trouble. Whereas we see this book shown to John the Revelator, it was previously seen by the seers (prophets) of old. For instance, Malachi chapters 3 and 4 speak of a heated time of when Zion will be delivered, while all the wicked are being burned up. In the midst of Malachi's insight of this coming night, we ironically see the prophetic book again denoted. This time we see it called a book of remembrance precisely written for those who fear the Lord.
Malachi 3:16...and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.
Ironically, this term "book of remembrance" speaks of a seddar rendition where Jews remember what G-d did to Egypt to save them and bring them out of the darkness of slavery. Therefore, I submit to you that the book of Revelation is predicting yet another Passover event meant to bring the Jews from out of America and the northern hemisphere.
Jeremiah 16:16 "Behold the days come, says Adonai, when they will no longer say, blessed be Adonai that brought us out of Egypt. But they will say, blessed be Adonai, that brought us out of the north country...
Bulls-eye America, as the last day passover begins with a sedar of type and hype like no other previous seen. But what is seen is a book of remembrance for those who served the Lord like a faithfull son.
Malachi 3:16,17...and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in the day that I make up my jewels; and I shall spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him."
Now the greatest thing that you can see at this time of trouble is the Lion of the tribe of Judah who is also the Passover Lamb. Revelation 5:5-6
It is time to see Him as the Lamb slain at Passover that brings Salvation (Yeshua) to all who call upon His name. Joel 2:29-32
I dreamed a great and terrible dream
I saw the Lord standing over Jerusalem. The nations had come against it, and had trampled it under foot, but that time was now over. I saw Him arise over this city as the defender. Larger than life and the city itself, He (Messiah) stretched out His ancient arm again from this chosen city. This time it reached across the whole world and He began to turn. Like an irrigation pivot going over a field, I saw His arm go from nation to nation destroying all cities and buildings. Nothing was left standing. However, there were four corners of the field of the world left untouched. Again, I saw this like a pivot which misses the corners of the field. Then I saw into these four corners, a remnant of Jews, shaking in fear, yet alive and untouched by these disasters. Then I heard the voice of the Spirit of God say to me, I will gather them from the four corners of the earth.
Then immediately I had a second dream, confirming the first. This time I saw the Lord's arm as a hay cutting mower which began to mow down the world's buildings like the grass of a field. But again there were the four extreme corners of planet earth left uncut which became harbors of refuge for the Jewish remnant fleeing from the falling nations.
New Zealand is one corner, Southern Australia is another.
Read Revelation 5:12-6:4
It's happening now.
"Earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, and failing economies. All the signs of the end of the world, or simply the end of an era?"
This is a quote on the back cover of my book published in 2012
called New Zeal for The God of Israel.
In the spring of 2000, the Lord gave me a vision early one morning as I was praying, detailing this current event that is today happening. In this vision I saw three major hurricanes coming into the gulf of Mexico. This signified the very statement above, that a new time was beginning on planet earth. A new dispensation in the realm of God's interaction with his creation. Ironically, This is happening on a jubilee year (much said below on this) and even as we enter the annual fall festivals and now in Yom Terruh (trumpets). Oh yes, and with Trump as pres. Again these three hurricanes now seen on the news is not new news to me, nor to another old prophet from way back named Zech.
Zechariah 9:14...and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.
Now don't miss the opportunity here. The Lord is passing by so cry out to him for mercy. Like the blind men lets again lift our voices and cry to Adonai for His salvation now coming for his people and nation.
Zechariah goes on to say that this will be the new day, or dispensation, when God saves his nation Israel.
Read it for yourselves
As we now stand upon the line of the 120th Jubilee, we should understand that the third season of mankind is officially expiring. 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 this 120th Jubilee is certainly this dedicated time of said sign. However, please see with me that this indeed signals 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, who was a Gentile indeed.
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 120th Jubilee is 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. Finally, know that this timeout %
Restore Ten More
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.
