We interrupt the posting of Favorites for a special report on some interesting connections being made by many who are watching the signs.
The Length of a Generation
Genesis 6:3 – “And Yahweh said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
Genesis 15:16 – “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there… In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here…” (100*4=400)
Psalm 90:10 – “The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years.”
Leviticus 23 to 25 – Fifty symbolizes deliverance or freedom from a burden. Yahweh commanded ancient Israel that every 50th year, on the Day of Atonement, that a Jubilee was to be declared with the sound of a trumpet During the Jubilee year all debts were settled in favor of the debtor and inheritances were returned to their rightful owners. Fifty days are counted between Passover and Shavuot.
Biblical Coincidences — or Warnings
120 Years from the First Zionist Congress
Joel 2:1 – “Blow the shofar in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of Yahweh comes, for it is close at hand:”
Genesis 6:3 – “Yahweh said, ‘My Spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; yet will his days be one hundred twenty years’.”
The first Zionist Congress was held in the concert hall of the Basel Municipal Casino on August 29, 1897. This date, August 29, 1897, is 120 years from Elul 1, 2017. Just coincidence, I’m sure!
100 Years from the Balfour Declaration
Genesis 7:11 – “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep were burst open, and the sky’s windows were opened.”
Noah’s flood began on the 17th of Chesvan. The Balfour Declaration was written by Lord Balfour to Lord Rothschild, and represented the first political recognition of Zionist aims by a Great Power. It was written on November 2, 1917 – on Chesvan 17!, 100 years ago. Just another coincidence, I’m sure!
70 Years from the United Nations Resolution 181
Matthew 24:31-34 – “He will send out his angels with a great sound of a shofar, and they will gather together his chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. “Now from the fig tree learn this parable. When its branch has now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that the summer is near. Even so you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things are accomplished.”
The United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 181 on September 3, 1947 outlining the partition plans for the land of Israel and called for two independent states to be formed after the end of the British Mandate, one Jewish and one Arab. We are now 70 years past that date. Yet another coincidence, I’m sure!
50 Years from the Capture of Jerusalem
Zechariah 12:6 – “In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a fire pan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place—Jerusalem.”
In 1967 control of Jerusalem was once again taken back into Israeli hands. We are now 50 years past that date. Just one more coincidence, I’m sure!
3 Years from the Blood Moon Tetrad
Hosea 6:2 – “After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”
It has been said that a solar eclipse denotes the judgment of Yahweh upon the nations, blood moons denote the judgment of Yahweh upon the nation of Israel, and that a solar eclipse occurring in the midst of four blood moons denotes the judgment of Yahweh upon the world. It has been two “days” since the last Blood Moons tetrad. We are approaching the third day. Just a final coincidence, I’m sure!
Really – Are You Kidding Me?
1Thessalonians 5:1-4 – “But concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that anything be written to you. For you yourselves know well that the day of Yahweh comes like a thief in the night. For when they are saying, “Peace and Safety,” then sudden destruction will come on them, like birth pains on a pregnant woman; and they will in no way escape. But you, brothers, aren’t in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief.”
Every year on September 21st the International Day of Peace is celebrated. The theme for 2017 is: “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for all. September 21st this year is Yom Teruah, the celebration of the blowing of the shofar and the resurrection of the dead! How many coincidences can one dismiss before one gets a hint?
American Coincidences – or Warnings
There are numerous Biblical connections to the numbers 12, 33, 40, and 70. Do any of these numbers pop up in relation to the coming total Solar eclipse over the United States on August 21, 2017? Are there other connections?
According to the Bible there are 12 disciples, and 12 months in a year. 12 is considered a perfect number in that it symbolizes Yahweh’s power and authority, as well as serving as a perfect governmental foundation.
On August 21, 2017, parts of the United States will experience a total Solar Eclipse. The eclipse will pass directly over twelve states – Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Just fluke, I’m sure!
• The first contact in the USA is in Oregon, the 33rd State of the Union.
• The last contact in the USA is in South Carolina, which is on the 33rd parallel.
• It happens on the 233rd day of the year, and it comes 33 days before the sign of the Virgin depicted in Revelation 12, which happens on September 23rd.
• It is 99 years since the last total solar eclipse that went shore to shore in the US, and September 23rd is 99 days from the end of the year. (33*3=99). Just another stroke of luck, I’m sure!
• Yeshua was tempted for 40 days in the wilderness, and there were 40 days between His resurrection and His ascension.
• The prophet Jonah gave the people of Nineveh 40 days to repent before judgment would strike. There is a town known as “Nineveh” in the United States as well. On Monday, 93 percent of the sun will be blotted out by the moon in that little town, and 7 years later the eclipse of 2024 will blot out 100 percent of the sun in that same town.
• Moses spent 40 days on Mt. Sinai. The first of Elul was when Moses began a period of 40 days of fasting and prayer on behalf of the people of Israel after they worshipped the golden calf, and descended on the 10th of Tishri, at the end of Yom Kippur, when repentance was complete.
• The eclipse, which starts on Av 29th is also exactly 40 days from Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur begins at sunset, and it concludes on September 30th, which will be the end of a 40 day period that began back on the day of the Total American Solar Eclipse on August 21st. Just another happenstance, I’m sure!
70 has a sacred meaning in the Bible that has two perfect numbers – 7 represents perfection and 10 represents completeness and Yahweh’s law. 70 symbolizes perfect spiritual order and a period of judgment. 70 is especially connected with Jerusalem. (7*10=70)
• The Solar Eclipse will begin on the Oregon coast as a partial eclipse at 9:06 a.m. PDT on August 21, and will end later that day as a partial eclipse along the South Carolina coast at about 4:06 p.m. EDT.
• The path of the eclipse is 70 miles wide. Just another coincidence, I’m sure!
Really – Are You Kidding Me?
The first big city in the Solar Eclipse hits is Salem, OR. Salem is named after Jerusalem. The eclipse also begins in Oregon exactly at sunset time in Jerusalem. So as the sun darkens in America it will be darkening in Jerusalem at the same time. How many coincidences can one dismiss before one gets a hint?
Joel 3:14 – “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of Yahweh is near in the valley of decision.”
Zephaniah 1:14 – “The great day of Yahweh is near, it is near, and hastens greatly.”
We do NOT set dates. The four Blood Moons of 2014–2015 warned us that Yahweh was getting ready to change the course of human history once again. Yahweh was clearly giving us signs but had not yet revealed the exact timing. However, we are now at the third “day” since their arrival.
Are we watching and listening? Are we about to see the rapture of the Bride of Christ, the Psalm 83 war, the War of Gog of Magog, and the beginning of the seven year Tribulation period? Will this Yom Teruah see the raising of the dead? Has the United States been singled out for a special warning?
Matthew 24:33 – “So, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door.”
Mark 13:29 – “Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door.”
Are these many events just mere coincidences, or are they perhaps dire warnings that time is up and the judgments described in scripture are about to unfold? Again, we do NOT set dates – Time will tell if these are just coincidences or dire warnings. Stay alert. The season of Yeshua’s return is near.
