Prelude to the thousand-year reign – part 2
The Spiritual Aspect
From this one sees that God has allowed for human periods of menstruation to remove the uncleanness from humanity's body, otherwise the thought that they are capable of being gods and dominating man (Gen 1:28; 3:5) would remain and resurface at a later date, (cf Rev 20:7-9). ...When the disgusting thing is discerned ... let those in Judea begin fleeing to the mountains... In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved... (Mt 24:16-25) But how will this nascent all against all war be cut short?
The world of politics and religion is aligning itself with prophecy. There are reports that will disturb him
,[the king of the north, see post 248, here
], out of the sun rising
,[China], and out of the north
, [Russia]. And the king of the north becomes enraged and sets out... to devote many to destruction
... before coming all the way to his end (Dan 11: 44,45). President Putin had said in his speech (above) There is a chance that we will face a formidable break-down in global development, which will be fraught with a war of all against all......
So all are aware of the danger and are looking for a way out. The only way out the king of the north sees as feasible is on his terms... my way or the highway.
. Therefore the eighth king will emerge from a compromise ...And the beast that you saw, that was but is not, it itself is also an eighth king but springs from the seven and it goes off into destruction. And the ten horns that you see
[on its head] are ten kings that have not yet received a kingdom but they do receive authority as kings with the beast one hour, and they have one mind and so they give their authority to the beast ...these will hate the harlot and make her devastated and naked
... (Rev17:11,12, 13, 16). And it is to avoid a war of all against all
, and to bring an end to the harlot's rule, that they compromise and give their authority to the beast.
At Dan 12:1-4 it says that during that time Michael would stand up, and that many would wake up and knowledge would become abundant, and that there would be a division between those that had woken up, some cleansing and whitening themselves and others not (Dan 12:2,4,9, 10). This is also in progress now. In the same vision, Daniel sees another two, standing on opposite sides of a stream, and a man clothed in linen above the waters of the stream. One of the two asks the man above the stream, "How long will it be to the end of the wonderful things?”
Who are these two standing
on opposite sides of the stream?
...And I proceed to raise my eyes and see, and look! there was a man and in his hand, a measuring rope ... to measure Jerusalem... for in the direction of the four winds I have spread you people abroad... “Hey there Zion! Make your escape, you who are dwelling with the daughter of Babylon.
And an angel asked Zechariah what he was seeing in the vision.
...I see a lampstand... and the lamps on top of it have seven pipes... What are the two bunches of twigs of the [two] olive trees that by means of golden tubes are pouring from within themselves the gold [liquid]? ...These are the two oiled ones (3323, yitshar) standing on behalf of the Lord of the whole earth
... (Zech 4:1,2,12,14)
... And a reed like a rod was given me
,[John], and he said get up and measure the [sanctuary] of God and the altar and those worshipping in it... And I will cause my two witnesses to prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days. These are the two olive trees and the two lamp-stands standing in the sight of the Lord of the earth
, (Rev 11:1,3,4).
And who is the man clothed in linen
...And he called out in my ears, saying; “Have those giving attention to the city come near, each one with his weapon in his hand for bringing ruin!” ... and there is one man among them clothed in linen with the secretaries inkhorn at his hips... And Jehovah went on to say to him
, [the man clothed in linen], ... “Pass through the midst of the city through the midst of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of the men that are sighing and groaning over all the detestable things that are being done in the midst of her... and to these others, he said in my ears: “Pass through the city after him and strike... but to any man on whom there is a mark do not go near, and from my sanctuary, you will start
... (Ezek 9:1,3,4,5,6)
This is the work that the two witnesses on opposite sides of the stream do on behalf of the Lord
One of them then asks the man clothed in linen how long it would be to the end of the wonderful things?
And the man clothed in linen answers ... It will be for an appointed time, appointed times and a half, and as soon as there will have been a completion of the dashing of the power of the holy people to pieces all these things will come to their finish"
... Dan 12:7. Appointed time
as used here comes from yet another Hebrew word rendered time, see RH column 4150 moed, here
. And it is used mainly in connection with God's regulations of nature and appointed times for religious festivals. But at Isa 1:14 it is used in another sense.
Isaiah says ... Hear O heavens and give ear O earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken: Sons I have brought up but they themselves have revolted against me. A bull well knows its owner and the ass the manger of is master, [but] Israel itself as not known me, my own people have not discerned me ...Woe to the sinful nation a people heavy with error, an evildoing seed! They have left Jehovah, they have treated the holy one of Israel with disrespect, they have turned backwards
... (Isa 1:2-4)
Hear the word of Jehovah you dictators of Sodom ...of what benefit to me is your multitude of sacrifices ...I have had enough of your whole burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed animals ...When you people keep coming in to see my face, who is it that has required this of you ...Stop bringing me any more of your valueless grain offerings, incense is something detestable to me ...Your new moons
[months] and your appointed times my soul has hated, they are a burden to me
.. (Isa 1:10-14)
The land had vomited them out in the sixth-century ... And you yourselves must keep my statutes and my judicial decisions and you must not do any of these detestable things ...For all these detestable things the men of the land who were before you have done so that the land is unclean. Then the land will not vomit you out for your defiling it
... (Lev 18:26, 27,28). And in the first century, Jesus had told them ...Your house,
[Jerusalem], is abandoned to you
, (Mt23:38). And the temple was destroyed in 70 CE.
... And I raised my eyes again and I am seeing a flying scroll... this is the curse that is going forth over all the earth, because everyone stealing according to it on this side has gone free of punishment, and everyone making a sworn oath in my name on that side has gone free of punishment
... And Jehovah of armies says, I have caused it to go forth... and it must enter into the house of the thief and into the house of the one making sworn oaths in my name
In Judaism, HaShem (lit. 'the Name') is used to refer to God, particularly as an epithet for the Tetragrammaton, when avoiding God's more formal title, Adonai ('my master')
And Zechariah saw an ephah measure that was going forth. And the angel told him... This is their aspect in all the earth
. And a woman was inside the ephah, and he is told This is wickedness
. The angel then dropped the led weight back on the ephah. And he saw two women with wind in their wings raising the ephah up between the earth and the heavens. And he asked where they were taking the ephah, and is told, In order to build a house for her in the land of Shinar
, [cf Gen 10:10
], and when it is ready, she must be deposited there in her proper place...
. (Zech 5:1-4,6-11)
In 1948 Israel repossessed that land.
Sanhedrin Invites 70 Nations to Hanukkah Dedication of Altar for the Third Temple
...According to Jewish tradition, the tabernacle and Aaron the Priest were consecrated for service on the last day of Hanukkah,” Rabbi Weiss explained to Breaking Israel News. “It is fitting that we should invite the nations to the ceremony since Hanukkah is about bringing light to the darkness. The Jews were meant to do this for the entire world,” he said, quoting the Prophet Isaiah.
For He has said: “It is too little that you should be My servant In that I raise up the tribes of Yaakov And restore the survivors of Yisrael: I will also make you a light of nations, That My salvation may reach the ends of the earth.” Isaiah 49:6
“The Jews were brought back to Israel for the purpose of spreading the light to the nations,” Rabbi Weiss said.
The ceremony will also be part of the Sanhedrin’s ongoing effort to establish a Bible-based international organization to replace the United Nations. To this end, they charged Rabbi Yoel Schwartz, president of the Sanhedrin’s Court for the Noahides, with preparing a declaration that would describe the spiritual basis for the organization
...The sages teach us that the world stands on three things: on Torah, on the Temple Service, and on acts of loving-kindness. Lacking the Temple service the world is like a throne that stands on two legs.[/list]
...Humanity created religions such as Christianity and Islam that served as instruments throughout history to bring humanity closer to this great day[/list]
...We are very close to the time about which the prophets of Israel prophesied that the God of the world who created everything will be called by the world in the name of the God of Israel, for only the people of Israel remained attached to Him.
These are the seven messages of the Creator of the world to humanity known as the Seven Noahide Laws:
- Belief in God: He who created everything. There is none besides Him and no one should turn away from Him
Blessing Hashem (God, literally ‘the name’).
- Respecting the Creator and the sages who are familiar with His Torah, and respecting the places of worship where the Torah is learned and prayers are recited to him. It is forbidden, God forbid, to speak harshly against them or to curse them.
- Stealing: The preservation of the rights of others to property and honour and body and not to desire to take anything belonging to others that is not for sale.
- Laws: To establish courts to judge justice and to direct society and obey the orders and decisions of the courts
- Killing: Do not shorten the lives of people, including the lives of the terminally ill. The opposite is also true; to invest efforts to heal diseases and maintain health.
- Have mercy on creatures: Not to be cruel to animals. One of the most forbidden acts is eating the organ or limb from a live animal. The animal must first be killed in a way that is less distressing such as cutting the neck.
- Prohibition of prostitution: The mitzvah (Bible commandment) to build a proper family life. It is a severe prohibition to commit adultery with
Therefore, anyone who receives upon himself all of these seven rules in front of a rabbinic court has a special status in Judaism. Even though they are not Jewish, they have entered into a full partnership in the service of God
(underline and bold mine). In other words for any religious body to be accepted into a partnership with them, they must agree to abide by these seven Laws.
Note that the name of Jesus/Yehoshua
('he comes to be' saves) is not mentioned in the document, nor is the name Jehovah YHWH
('he comes to be'), but the titles Christian and Hashem are. Why are these two most important names missing? Will they be banned from use by any religious organization that wants to enter into a full partnership with God
. Will the mention of these two most important identities be banned in religious circles including forums such as this, see post 218 &219, here
This speech was first given on Nov 29, 2018 ...The ceremony will also be part of the Sanhedrin’s ongoing effort to establish a Bible-based international organization to replace the United Nations
. And their plans are by now well underway, and this tree has started sprouting leaves, (Mt 24:32).
And the man clothed in linen answered ... “It will be for an appointed time, appointed times and a half. And as soon as there will have been a completion of the dashing of the power of the holy people to pieces all these things will come to their finish"
... Dan 12:7.
Since these appointed times, 4150 moed
are used to dash the power of the holy people to pieces they are not from Jehovah, but instead are the filthy rags of menstruation. ...and we have become like someone unclean, all of us, and all our acts of righteousness are like the garment for periods of menstruation
(strike-through, added text and arrows mine)
The appointed times - moed
- as at Dan 12:7 is a period of ceremonial uncleanness which like menstruation needs to be evacuated from the human body (as at Dan 2:9,21; 4:16,23; 7:12,25 see, iddan
which corresponds to iddah
) before the son of man comes
in power and glory (Mt 24:29,30).
And from the time the constant feature has been removed
, [the use of God's name, YHWH and the name of Jesus/Yehoshua], and there has been a placing of the disgusting thing that is causing desolation there will be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Happy is the one who keeps in expectation and arrives at one thousand three hundred and thirty five days
... (Dan 12:11,12).
