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.
