The Final Countup
THE FINAL COUNTUP
Matthew 24:42-44, “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Master is coming. 43But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Luke 21:34-36, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
As we count up to the 70th Jubilee, which I fully expect Yeshua to personally announce on Yom Kippur, 2030 CE, we continue to warn folks in a final attempt to wake people’s spirits up to what is about to come upon the whole earth. Put your favorite magazine or newspaper down and back away, shut your cell phone off and throw it into your underwear drawer, flush your MP3 player down the toilet, click off the TV and set it out at the curb for the trash man, log off the internet, power down your computer and listen up. The MOST important thing you can do right now is PRAY AND PREPARE your heart and soul to meet your Maker upon His arrival back to earth. Yeshua could return at any moment, therefore I pray for each of us that we will be ready for that Day.
Watching the end-time signs is important, end-time prophecy is important, but none of that stuff is as important as getting your spiritual life in order to meet Yeshua Yahweh face to face on His Judgment Day. Soon you will be asked to cast your vote for who will be king over you. Will you cast your ballot for Satan and his counterfeit messiah, soon to show his ugly face to the world? Or will you cast your ballot for Yeshua to be your King and Master forever? I hope you cast your ballot daily in favor of Yeshua. A vote for yourself or anyone else besides Yeshua would be a foolish vote. When Yeshua tells us to watch, He doesn’t mean watch football or the news. Yeshua meant for us to watch spiritually, to avoid falling to temptation. Matthew 26:41, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Many billions of humans are going to perish during these final years of human history. None of us knows when we will die, but we must be prepared spiritually above all other preparation. It’s ok to stock up some food and water, batteries, candles, and propane, but if you’ve got it and your neighbors don’t, guess who they will visit when the Stuff Hits The Fan (SHTF)? It’s infinitely more important to prepare yourself spiritually. Yeshua is big enough to protect you in any earthly circumstance. So wake up, sober up and get prepared. Romans 13:11, “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” James revealed to us our ephemeral existence in 4:13-16, “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; 14whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15Instead you ought to say, “If the Master wills, we shall live and do this or that.” 16But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.” Time is running out, our life is short, wake up.
When we turn over the new Hebrew year this spring of 2011 CE, we’ll be entering the 30th year of the 70th Jubilee cycle. We’re counting up to year 49. So we are only about 19 ½ years from Yom Kippur, 2030 CE, the start of the 70th Jubilee Year. Let me put it to you this way: When one man’s Judgment Day (Year) ends another man’s Jubilee Day (Year) begins. Meditate on that for a few moments. It will be a wonderful day for the saints who will inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh on that Jubilee Day, but it will be a lot worse than a bad hair day for those who don’t make it to Jubilee! That is why Yeshua said in Daniel 12:12, “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.” Yahweh makes Judgment Day, the great and terrible Day of Yahweh, happen one day and the next day is Jubilee!. Now throw the day for a year principle (Numbers 14:34) into the mix and you understand, since Jubilee is one year long, Judgment Day will very likely last one year. It will take Yahweh one year to expend His wrath on rebellious mankind. What did Yeshua state in Matthew 24:37, “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Noah was in the Ark for one solar year, Judgment Day in Noah’s day was one year in length. Can you imagine a firestorm engulfing the entire earth for one year? You get the idea.
I’ve only been studying this Jubilee Year thing for a little over five years, but this cycle matches the seven-year sabbatical year cycles and the Jubilee declared by the prophet Isaiah to Judah’s King Hezekiah in 715 BCE, when Judah was under attack by Assyrian crown prince Sennacherib. Isaiah 37:30, “This shall be a sign to you: You shall eat this year (715 BCE, Sabbatical year and start of 14th Jubilee) such as grows of itself, and the second year (714 BCE, Jubilee year, 1st year of new Sabbatical and Jubilee cycle) what springs from the same; also in the third year (713 BCE, 2nd year of Sabbatical and Jubilee cycle) sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them.” 2030 CE is the 7th year of the Sabbatical cycle and the 49th year of the 70th Jubilee cycle. Yahweh knows His calendar, He knows what time it is, do you?
Now, lest you think we have 19+ years to kick back and relax, therefore making our Master angry, let’s count up using another plausible scenario from Daniel 9:24-27, “Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of (to seal up) sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy (Place). 25“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. 26“And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” The Hebrew word for weeks is “Shabuwa” or sevens, and since it is in the plural here in verse 24, it should read “Seventy Feasts of Weeks”. We just need to know the start date as determined by verse 25, from the going forth of the command. The United Nations spoken command to create the modern nation of Israel on November 29, 1947, in Resolution 181, fulfills Daniel 9:25. Since November 29 is past the Feast of Weeks, or Shavuot, or Feast of Pentecost, for 1947, we begin counting the Feasts of Weeks in 1948, when the commandment of the United Nations began to be fulfilled. The Feast of Shavuot (Pentecost), 1948, the year Israel became a modern nation and declared its independence, is our 1st Feast of Weeks in Daniel’s 70 weeks countup. Using verse 26, we count up sixty-two years, arriving at 2009 CE, the Sabbatical year, which began on Nisan 1, 2009 CE. Sometime after the Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost, in 2009 CE, we should see the altar on the Temple Mount shut down and the abomination of desolation set up, as foretold by our Master, Yeshua, in Matthew 24:15, “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand).” Now, if we count up 3 ½ years from Pentecost of 2009 CE, we come very close to . . . December 21, 2012! Zowie! That’s the winter solstice and the evil day the Mayans were worried about! Could it be that is when the Antichrist will put an end to the daily and set himself up on the Temple Mount and declare himself messiah of the world? Hmmm, could be. Here’s a possible fulfillment scenario of that prophecy: The United Nations declares Jerusalem an international city and makes the Pope the religious/political leader of Jerusalem. Ouch! Just for fun, let’s count up another 3 ½ years, or 1290 days, or 1335 days, and we come real close to Yom Kippur of 2016 CE, during another Sabbatical year. And guess what? 2016 CE would be the 69th Feast of Weeks of Daniel 9:25. Under this scenario, Yeshua the Messiah would arrive on Tishri 1, 2016 CE, the Feast of Trumpets, be crowned King of kings, command the angels to pour out the last 7 vials of Yahweh’s wrath, and ten days later announce the 70th Jubilee on Yom Kippur! Wow! If this scenario plays itself out, from Yom Kippur, 2015 to Yom Kippur, 2016 CE will likely be the Day of Yahweh, Judgment Day (Year), consisting of 7 trumpets, 3 woes, and the final 7 vials of Yahweh’s wrath. On Yom Kippur, 2016 CE, Yeshua announces the 70th Jubilee. On Passover, 2017 CE, Yeshua shares His first bottle of wine with His friends, since 30 CE! Daniel’s 70th Feast of Weeks then falls in late spring 2017 CE, during the 70th Jubilee year! Get ready. The ultimate climax of human history is just around the corner of time. In fact, as this scenario reveals, we could be inside the final seven years of human government right this minute.

You could also add to the above list of simultaneous events, “the time of Jacob’s trouble.” Pray for our brothers and sisters in Israel, they may get wiped off the map of the Middle East anytime now. Jeremiah 30:5-7, 23-24, “For thus says Yahweh: ‘We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. 6Ask now, and see, whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins like a woman in labor, and all faces turned pale? 7Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. . . 23Behold, the whirlwind of Yahweh goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind; it will fall violently on the head of the wicked. 24The fierce anger of Yahweh will not return until He has done it, and until He has performed the intents of His heart. In the latter days you will consider it.” Try to let this truth soak into your 21st-century brain, Yahweh’s mercy extended is simply His justice delayed. He cannot and will not delay justice forever. He has a plan, a 7,000-year plan, and it’s time to wrap up the first 6 days of creation and enter into the 7th day of rest for 1,000 years with Messiah as King over all the earth. Yahweh is not senile either, but He does have emotions, as the above verses reveal. When Yeshua shows up for Judgment Day, or the time of Jacob’s trouble, which could last about one solar year, Yahweh will be expressing His fatherly love towards mankind with “fierce anger”. That sounds like a spanking to me, and no individual on this planet has enough hands to cover all their body parts when Yahweh decides to spank. The manchild will be born (again), but it will entail much labor and much pain, and not just in the area of one’s loins.
I pray that you have not become “dull of hearing”, Hebrews 5:11, “of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.” This is the time to be sober minded and spiritually sharp, listening to the Holy Spirit and preparing to meet Yeshua upon His soon return. I can’t predict when Yeshua will return, but He will be back sooner than we imagine. Are you full of expectation? Is your lamp full of the oil of the Spirit? Luke 12:35-37a, “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 36and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. 37Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching.” Are you ready to meet Him, whether in the air or on the ground? Are you excitedly anticipating His return? Verse 40, “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Watch, pray, prepare. Love Him by obeying Him. Accept your divine call to repentance.
Gotta share this with you. Go back and reread Ezekiel 3. Verse 5, “For you are not sent to a people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, but to the house of Israel.” This is a direct reference to the northern ten tribes of Israel, who had already been taken captive by Shalmaneser V, king of Assyria, 129 years before Yahweh gave this command to Ezekiel. Friends, Ezekiel’s prophecies were to have a dual fulfillment, the first in his day when Jerusalem was sacked by Nebuchadnezzar in 588 BCE, the second in our end-time days! Buckle your seatbelts, we’re in for one heaven of a ride! The house of Israel today consists of Israel, America, Britain, and most of the western English-speaking world. Judgment always begins with the House of Yahweh. Welcome to the Family. It’s past time to get your robe of righteousness dry-cleaned in the blood of Yeshua.
Here’s a gut-wrenching book for end-time reading: The Coming Famine, published in 2010 by Julian Cribb, professor at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. Yahweh is not the only one who knows what’s ahead for us. Julian’s book will scare that extra weight off you, before the prodigious famine hits. Quoting from an article in the January-February, 2011 CE issue of The Good News Magazine, on page 23, David Pimentel of Cornell University says, “Using corn for ethanol increases the price of U.S. beef, chicken, eggs, breads, cereals and milk by 20 to 30 percent.” Your federal civil government’s biofuel policies are one of the causes of worldwide malnutrition, inflation, and coming soon, famine. The third seal of Revelation 6:5-6 is open; famine will soon sweep the earth. “When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”” A day’s wages for a loaf of bread may soon be the good old days. Mark 13:35-37, “Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning—36lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!””

p.s. I stumbled across another useful website today, www.mygroponics.com an urban vertical gardening solution that uses only two square feet of space. It would be worth your while to check it out, if you can’t move out of the city or town you live in to an agricultural area. The site’s e-book only costs $10.00, barely the cost of an ever-shrinking box of cereal. If that’s not the working link, find the good link from the http://urbansurvival.com website.
