I am being locked out of the DDT site for days on end. Bobcat and Apollos are working hard to eliminate the problem, but I am not sure that they can remedy it. We’ll have to wait and see.
So where are we in the stream of time?
In post one of ‘Revelation – the Woman in the Wilderness,' I said:
Concerning the woman in the wilderness and her seed, Isaiah says: ...Jehovah called you as if you were a wife left entirely and hurt in spirit ...who is being rejected ...Your God has said. “For a little moment, I left you entirely ...I concealed my face from you but for a moment, (Isa 54:7)The crowd sentenced Jesus to death at the sixth hour, (Jhn 19:14), between 11 and 12 noon. From that hour until the ninth hour, about 3½ hours darkness fell over all the land, and Jesus called out with a loud voice ..."Eli Eli lama sabachthani?" that is "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?' Jehovah's spirit, which had energized him and enabled him to perform great works, had completely left him and he felt abandoned even as King David before him had felt when he wrote: My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? (Mt 27:46; Ps 22:1-31)
This woman's seed, (Isa 54:3) correspond to those at the base of the altar. And those that are about to the killed, (Rev 6:9,11), to the two witnesses that along with covid lockdowns are now being progressively silenced, (Rev 11:7).
Isa 54:7 continues: but with loving kindness to time indefinite I will have mercy upon you, your repurchaser Jehovah has said.
Even as David and Jesus were abandoned for a time, so it will be for the seed of the woman in the wilderness, the two witnesses, (Ps 22:1; Isa 54:1-8; Rev 11:7-9). At Rev 12:17 it mentions the remaining ones of her seed, these are the ones that survive the flood of abuse that the dragon spews out at them in an effort to drown them. This is described as the dashing of the power of the holy people to pieces at Dan 12:7, which is in progress now. If you have felt this abandonment, the draining of your power to speak then this concerns you.
Jehovah said For a little moment I left you entirely, How long is this little moment? Jesus was hung on the stake at the sixth hour, between 11 am and noon. At that time darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour about 3½ hours later. At the ninth hour he called out ...with a loud voice: “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” which means when translated, “My God my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mt 27:46).
This happens to all the woman’s seed. John saw the dragon which pursues the woman that gives birth to the male child, (Rev 12:13). The underlined verbs are aorist not past tense. So this 'giving birth,' is in progress and refers to those that survive the dragon's onslaught. These are the remaining ones of her seed, who observe the commandments of God and have the work of bearing witness to Jesus, Which corresponds to the two witnesses standing up, after three and half days the spirit of life from God enters into them and they, [the 2 witnesses], stand upon their feet and a great fear falls upon those beholding them, (Rev 11:11).
So how long is the little moment of abandonment?
For Jesus, this feeling of abandonment occurred 3½ hours after he was hung on the stake, between two and three pm just before he died. He came to life shortly after being entombed. For the two witnesses, the abandonment occurs after 3½ days, just before the spirit of life enters into them and they stand upon their feet, (Rev 11:9,11). We will have to wait and see when that is. At a guess, they will stand up on their feet when the great tribulation begins, when Israel attempts to wipe Iran/Persia off the map.
Israel’s opposition leader said the following on Jan 1, 2022.‘Israel’s’ Lapid: We May Attack Iran without Informing the US! ‘Israeli’ Foreign Minister Yair Lapid announced that an attack against Tehran could occur without prior correspondence with the US. ...“‘Israel’ will do whatever it needs to do to protect its security. And we don’t need anybody’s permission for that,” Lapid told Channel 12. “That’s been the case since the first day we established this ‘state’.”
And Israel’s new Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett, said on Dec 28, 2021
Israel will be able to act independently even if world powers reach an agreement with Iran, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday, a day after negotiations for Tehran and Washington to return to the 2015 nuclear deal resumed in Vienna ...“Israel won’t be a side in an agreement and will always keep its right to act and defend itself on its own
Also read, Jan 1, 2022 The Jewish state possesses capabilities the world can’t even imagine and will use them against Tehran if necessary, the Israeli foreign minister has warned. Since Israel doesn't use nuclear power for electricity, its nuclear sites are weapons facilities.
So a pre-emptive strike against Iran/Persia would include nuclear weapons.
Jesus described the retaliation thus: then let those in Judea begin fleeing to the mountains ...Woe to pregnant women and those suckling babies in those days... for then there will be great tribulation such has not occurred since the world's beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. In fact, unless those days were cut short no flesh would be saved, but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short. The chosen ones, correspond to the remaining ones of the woman's seed who observe the commandments of God and have the work of bearing witness to Jesus, (Mt 24:16,19,21,22; Rev 12:17).
So how long is the abandonment? All that can be said is that it is not long. Just as Jesus called out , "My God, My God why have you abandoned me", just before he died - the exact time of his resurrection is unknown. So it will be for those the make up the body of the two witnesses. They also feel abandoned, God's energizing spirit is missing, the only thing remaining is the spirit of truth which will be with those who love Jesus and observe his commandments ...forever, (Jhn 14:15,16).
