Until the Day of Warfire
Until the Day of Warfire
Recently, I went through Matthew 24 verse by verse. Believe it or not, there is always something more to learn from Yahweh and His word. Let’s go back and look again at one portion of that powerful Olivet Discourse. Matthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. [JESUS ADVENT 2.0] 38For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” This passage is repeated in Luke 17:26-27, “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” We know not to get into date setting, but what if Yeshua has given us a clue regarding a date? Remember that it is the sign events of the end times that will lead us to the JESUS ADVENT 2.0, but aligning current events with dates found in the Bible may really help us out with our end times timeline.
Of all the patriarchs in the Old Testament, Noah’s worldwide catastrophic Flood had specific month and day numbers assigned to many of its notable events. But what day did Yeshua just happen to mention in His Olivet Discourse? THE DAY THAT NOAH ENTERED THE ARK! So what day was that? Let’s look back to Genesis 7:11-13 and find out, “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life [about the 1,657th year of creation, about 2452 BCE], in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark—” Noah entered the Ark on the 17th day of the 2nd month of the 1,657th year of creation. Before Yahweh gave Moses the religious calendar at the Exodus event, the Hebrews counted the beginning month of their year from the fall month of Tishri, which we now call the 7th month of the Hebrew year. So Noah’s 2nd month is our modern Hebrew 8th month of Cheshvan. And just to help you relate this to our life today, when is Cheshvan 17, 5773, or 2012 CE? It’s this Friday, November 2, 2012 CE, which of course begins at sundown on Thursday, November 1, 2012 CE, Jerusalem time!! This is according to the two computerized Hebrew calendars that I use.
So what you say? Well, on Cheshvan 17, 1657 creation year, YAHWEH BEGAN TO POUR OUT JUDGMENT ON THE WHOLE WORLD as Noah knew it. After 40 days and 40 nights of rain, the earth was totally submerged under about 7 meters of water. Every living person and creature outside of the Ark died, except fishes.
So what you say? Well, we find that date of Cheshvan 17 in another ancient writing known as The Book of Jubilees. In Chapter 3, verse 17 of The Book of Jubilees we read, “. . .And after the completion of the seven years [Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden in perfection for 7 years, exactly], which he had completed there, seven years exactly, [8 A.M.] and in the second month, on the seventeenth day (of the month), the serpent came and approached the woman, and the serpent said to the woman, ‘Has God commanded you’.” What is this verse saying? On Cheshvan 17, in the 8th year of creation, Adam and Eve sinned, fell from Yahweh’s grace, and allowed death into the world. Which means that YAHWEH POURED OUT JUDGMENT ON THE EARTH ON CHESHVAN 17, 8TH YEAR OF CREATION!! What are we seeing here? Possibly a pattern that Yahweh pours out judgment on Cheshvan 17.
Now let’s come back to the 21st Century. Cheshvan 17, 5773 Jewish, or 2012 CE is this Friday, November 2, 2012!! What could possibly happen this year on Cheshvan 17? Well, considering that about 30 nations of the world have their armed forces massed in the Middle East, because the Prince of Persia is rearing his ugly head, maybe we’ll see the beginning of the Gog/Magog war!!! This war could easily lead into World War III!! Ezekiel 38:3-6, “and say, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal [Russia]. 4I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. 5Persia [Iran], Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6Gomer [Turkey] and all its troops; the house of Togarmah [Turkey] from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.” What you see here is Russia, Iran (Persia), and all their allies heading to Israel in an attempt to wipe Israel off the map. What country above all others is bringing attention and sanctions against itself by attempting to create a nuclear bomb for the very purpose of wiping Israel off the map? Iran. Persia. Elam. Verses 21-23, ““I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says Sovereign Yahweh. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am Yahweh.”’”
We are learning that the Prince of Persia (the demon over the principality of Elam/Iran area) is the focus of much end time prophecy. Consider Daniel 8:2, “I saw in the vision, and it so happened while I was looking, that I was in Shushan, the citadel, which is in the province of Elam [Iran]; and I saw in the vision that I was by the River Ulai.” Daniel describes the Ram [Persia, Iran] and Goat from the west [USA and European allies] war. Verse 5, “And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth [U.S. Navy], without touching the ground [U.S. Air Force]; and the goat had a notable horn [loudmouthed liar Obama?] between his eyes.” Verse 20, “The ram which you saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Media [Iraq] and Persia [Iran]. 21And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece [Western Nations]. The large horn that is between its eyes is the first [or number one] king [loudmouthed liar Obama?].” Verse 17, “So he came near where I stood, and when he came I was afraid and fell on my face; but he said to me, “Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end.”” Read Daniel 8 and you will see that we whip Iran, but we meet our demise afterward. We finally, after 70 years, win a war, but lose America! I propose to you that the Ezekiel 38/39 war, the Daniel 8 war, and the Psalm 83 war are all one and the same WARFIRE.
You tell me, does this next verse sound like the current demon kings of Persia? Psalm 83:4, “They have said, “Come, and let us cut them [Israel] off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”” Verses 5-8a, “For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: 6The tents of Edom [Jordan] and the Ishmaelites [Arabs, Muslims]; Moab [Jordan] and the Hagrites [Arabians]; 7Gebal, Ammon [Jordan], and Amalek [parts of Turkey]; Philistia [Gaza, Hamas] with the inhabitants of Tyre [Lebanon, Hezbollah]; 8Assyria [Syria] also has joined with them;” Verses 11-12, “Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, 12Who said, “Let us take for ourselves the pastures of Yahweh for a possession.”” Who is it that wants to divide up Yahweh’s land? Is it not the so-called Palestinians and Muslim Middle East nations? What is Yahweh’s response? Verses 13-18, “O my Mighty One, make them like the whirling dust, like the chaff before the wind! 14As the fire burns the woods, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire, 15So pursue them with Your tempest, and frighten them with Your storm. 16Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Your name, O Yahweh. 17Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; yes, let them be put to shame and perish, 18That they may know that You, whose name alone is Yahweh, are the Most High over all the earth.”
War is coming to the Middle East and it may be coming sooner rather than later, like this weekend. We can pray that war does not break out this year on Cheshvan 17, but if not this year, then within the next few years we’ll see warfire in the Middle East.
This thought is not original with me. This information comes to us from an article by Susan Hooge on the www.hebrewnation.net website, in an article summarizing her work by Laura Densmore, titled Noah’s Flood and the Gog/Magog War. Here’s the link for your convenience: http://hebrewnationradio.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=3349:noahs-flood-and-the-gog-magog-war&Itemid=131 They include a nice timeline chart, which I do not endorse. You can take the information and build your own timeline.
The Lord recently showed me that He will shorten the end times for the sake of the elect as He said He would, but He cannot take time off of the last 3 ½ years, because they are numbered days. But He can and probably will take time off the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation. Lucky us. So what does that mean to us? Well, try this on for size. What did Yeshua tell the rebellious Jews in Jerusalem just before His crucifixion in Matthew 23:37-39, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38See! Your house is left to you desolate; 39for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of Yahweh!’” Yeshua just quoted Psalm 118:26, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahweh! We have blessed you from the house of Yahweh.” So what you say? Well, the Book of Psalms is a prophetic timeline of the last 150 years of the world as we know it. Psalm 1 = 1901 CE. Psalm 150 = 2050 CE. So what you say? Well, Psalm 118 = 2018 CE, a mere SIX YEARS FROM NOW!!! So, you students of the Scriptures, you put it all together and tell me what that means!!
After Noah’s flood, Yahweh promised not to ever again destroy the earth with water, but He will destroy the world as we know it through the Judgment of Warfire.
Today, this moment, is the time to repent of our sins and turn to Yeshua for the salvation of our souls. Yahweh loves us, but He is a firm perfect disciplinarian. The sky is about to roll back and reveal the Kingdom of Heaven to our physical eyes. We will soon see the Lamb of Yahweh in the clouds above earth, whom we pierced with our sins on the execution stake. Only this time around He’s coming to earth as the Judge, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. I hope you’re all ready to meet Him.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
