On May 27th, I posted a four part email here on Fivedoves in which I expressed the possibility of us going home on, or about, July 14/15.
Recently, I came across some things that have me thinking it may end up happening a week earlier, on July 7/8.
Here are the links to the prior posts to reference since what I am presenting here still includes a lot of my thinking in these prior emails:
(Fyi, I have an unfortunate typo in part 3, paragraph 2, where "Leviticus 3:15-16" should be "Leviticus 23:15-16".)
A main premise in my prior thinking was that even though the Jewish Sanhedrin currently have a calendar that is not Biblically accurate, that God will still fulfill a significant type/shadow event, namely a correctly counted Pentecost, on that calendar while at the same time fulfill the rapture's type/shadow event on His Biblically accurate calendar, namely the 18th day of the 3rd month of when God came down at Mount Sinai during a long shofar blast. Both of these fall on July 14/15 this year. In other words, God will fulfill both types/shadows at the same time.
I was almost in a bit of a shock when I discovered a few weeks later that there is yet another date that does the very same thing of having a Pentecost and a "18th day of the 3rd month Sinai event" dovetail together. This happens a week prior, on July 7/8.
I am now thinking that this July 7/8 ends up being a better fitting puzzle piece, and I will try to explain this.
The Sanhedrin's correctly counted Pentecost (7 weeks plus 50 days) on July 14/15 is a week after the correctly counted Pentecost on the popular Jewish calendar on July 7/8. The reason for this is how one determines the beginning of a month.
July 7/8 is the 18th day of the 3rd month on the constellation calendar. This month is commonly referred to as Gemini (shows a union of a couple). A number of "watching for Jesus" folks have received understanding/revelation from God to pay attention to Gemini. This Gemini focus is actually referencing the constellation calendar.
For folks not familiar with this calendar, when Jesus died and resurrected, it was when the sun was in "the Lamb of God" constellation, commonly referred to as Aries. Jesus' death and resurrection established that constellation month as the first month.
At this time, these constellation months start and end on about the 21st of each of the Gregorian calendar months.
I lean towards the idea that since we, as the body and bride of Christ, have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places per Eph 1:3, that our calendar would also be in the "heavenly places", or using constellations as months verses referencing the moon. Keep in mind that the constellations (or stars) are part of what God determined as signs, though the evil one has hijacked the original meanings and purpose by fabricating horoscopes (which we are to stay clear from).
We were not given the calendar God gave to the children of Israel. That one is theirs. The chosen remnant within Israel-Judah, after the extreme refinement of the coming judgement years, will ultimately inherit God's earth based kingdom. The body of Christ, as new creations, will inherit God's celestial places kingdom once we get new bodies. As the Righteousness of God in our union with Jesus, there is nothing in our core selves/natures that need any refining. All we are waiting for is new bodies. These two distinct kingdom realms each have their own unique calendars.
So, the timing of the prior posts is, I think, going to unfold a week earlier than I was thinking. This also seems to fit better with other pieces coming up, and during the transition of God shifting to dealing with the 144,000 and the chosen remnant within Israel/Judah.
The Sept 23rd/24th Revelation 12 sign does point to a future birth(s). However, like Pearl Kolibri (sp?) pointed out in one of her Youtube videos, births happen anywhere from 3 weeks prior to the due date, up to 2 weeks after the due date, with only about 4-5% happening on the due date itself. In other words, the Rev 12 sign pointed to a future window of time wherein the birth will take place. We are in that window.
So far, no birth happened yet! Some watchers are already doing counts from June 23rd (9 months after the Rev 12 sign) in light of the purification timeframes described in Leviticus 12. I think it is a little premature to do this calculation yet, though I believe they are on the right track as I will try to show in what follows.
Leviticus 12 points to periods of time when the birth mother (the focus is not on the baby) cannot come before God in the temple. 40 days if she had a boy. 80 days if she had a girl.
Again, the purification of the mother is the focus of Levitcus 12, not the newly born child. This is key. There is confusion in the watching community because folks are not making this distinction.
Now, firstly, a question is, "Who is the mother of the body of Christ, new creations brought into union with the very Godhead?"
Paul teaches in Galatians 4:26 that the Jerusalem above (heavenly places) is free and "she is our mother". As new creations, we are born out of a reality that transcends creation. We are birthed out of or God Himself, yet into His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God is our "mother". In other words, our "mother" who is "above", does not need the 40 or 80 days of purification. So, Leviticus 12 does not apply to the body of Christ. Also, we are the ones about to be birthed out of the earth (so the Rev 12 sign still points to our timing window), yet we are not the mother that Leviticus 12 focuses upon.
However, there is another "mother" and another "baby" also about to be born. The Chosen Remnant within the modern day children of Israel/Judah are about to give birth to the 144,000. We are right on the cusp of this. I am thinking this might happen on July 11-ish, at the midpoint of the rapture-gathering-week, after their three days of darkness similar to what Paul experienced on the road to Damacus. This timing for the birth of the 144,000, I think, will happen just after we go home, three and a half days after, to be precise.
The Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah is the "mother" about to give birth to the 144,000. I believe that the Revelation 12 sign points to this mother (Although it could also be alluding to the timing of when the earth "births" the dead in Christ out of her at our homegoing. If this is valid, I anticipate "the water breaking" just before we go home which might be a tsunami generated from the slumping off of land into the ocean off Hawaii's main island).
Now, the question is, "Is the group of 144,000 considered male or female?", thinking in terms of Levitcus 12 and how long they will experienceba purification before, in some way, being brought before God.
If male, then the 40 days from July 11 ends August 19th. However, August 19 is one week early of Israel's true Bibiblically accurate Pentecost per the "full moon starts the month" calendar (as I referenced in my prior posts). In my original posts to Fivedoves, I was anticipating everything starting (including the rapture) on July 15, and not on July 8 like I am considering now. In that prior scenario, the midweek point for the "birthing" of these 144,000 was July 18. In that scenario, the adding of 40 days would have fallen on the true Pentecost. It seemed to fit so well. Yet, if events unfold starting a week earlier (on July 7/8) than what I originally anticipated, the 40 day purification count for the mother doesn't fit.
This is when I noticed that Leviticus 12 focuses only on the mother. I had been lumping the mother and baby together. The Leviticus 12 purification timeframes do not apply to the 144,000. They are the "baby". The 144,000 will still be sealed on the true Pentecost of August 26th. Yet, what about their "mother", and how does Leviticus 12 relate to this Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah?
I had always assumed the 144,000 are considered a "male" child. It was a premise I had to reconsider.
What if God sees them as a "female" child, even though the scriptures attach the idea of maleness to the group? If this ends up being the case, then the remnant's purification timeframe is 80 days after the birthing on July 11th.
I realized this is not a stretch as I consider maleness as compared to femaleness. Think in terms that, in the natural realm (this does not apply to the members of the body of Christ wherein there is neither male nor female), the man is the head of the woman. The description of the 144,000 in Revelation 14, after they raptured at the midpoint of the judgement years, is that they followed the lamb wherever He went (responding to Jesus' headship) and that they are virgins, and that they are blameless. This, to me, sounds female.
The group of 144,000 relate to Jesus as their Head, their source. This is just like what the Bride of Christ does, even though we are made up of males and females.
I am beginning to understand that any chosen people or group of God, when they live before God in righteousness and holiness, do so only as they look to God as their Source, or Head. In other words, these groups relate to God as "female".
So, thinking in terms of the 144,000 being a female baby, then their "mother", the chosen remnant of Israel/Judah, cannot "appear" before God for a total of 80 days.
I added 80 days to July 11th and it lands me smack dab in the middle of the Feast of Tanernacles on the popular Jewish calendar.
(As an aside, I believe God will continue to use their faulty calendar, while also using His true calendar, at least until the witnesses show up to set them straight.)
Now recall from Deut. 9:9, 9:18 and 10:10, that Moses went up and down three times at Mount Sinai for 40 days each time. Which time did Moses come down "glowing". It was after the third time! Why didn't he come down "glowing" the other two times? I believe it is because God is showing us when Moses will come back down to Israel in the near future, when he will be arriving in a glowing, glorified body. So, when might this happen?
On prior years, when I calculated when Moses would have come down that third time "glowing", I discovered that he would have arrived in the very middle of the Feast of Tabernacles, the same time Jesus, who was present yet in secret, started to teach Israel openly. I anticipate that Moses will arrive to the Chosen Remnant in the middle of this coming Feast of Tabernacles.
So, after the 144,000's "mother" has undergone her 80 days of purification this summer, this timeframe will end at the very same timing of when Moses will return back down to Israel in a glorified body, with a second set of tablets in his hands. After her 80 days of purification, "the mother who just had a female baby" will be truly ready to hear from God. Moses will be, to the Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah, a representative of God Himself. This is on/about September 27/28.
All that I have presented here in this new post is consistent with the idea that the constellation calendar is for the body of Christ, which has the 18th day of the 3rd month on July 7/8, the very same day Pentecost should have been calculated on the popular jewish calendar by adding 50 days to the end of a count of 7 weeks after the Passover's Feast of Firstfruits.
This means I have July 7/8 as a very high watch date for when we go home, a week earlier than my last set of posts.
Now, I am thinking that Moses, once he comes back down, will be on earth all the way to Jesus' second coming. (I am thinking that per Zechariah 1:18-21 that there are a total of four witness : Moses, John, Elijah, and Enoch, two of which will be killed and resurrected/raptured middle of the judgement years).
Moses, due to disobedience, had his original mission of leading Israel into the promised land cut off. Basicallly, God is going to let Moses finish his assignment during the coming judgement years. This will include a bit of a rerun for Moses.
Just like his first time (but this next time will be at mid-judgement) Moses will lead the chosen remnant out of a latter days "Egypt" (Rev 11:8 refers to Jerusalem with this term), likely also on the 15th day of the 1st month like Moses did in Exodus 12, and into the wilderness (to Petra for 40 months?) This remnant will receive their daily bread of manna like Jesus instructed them in the "Lord's prayer" in order to survive until their promised land is established at Jesus' second coming. Moses will finally lead the remnant "into" their promised land, fulfilling his original destiny.
Moses had Joshua with him the first time around. I think John will fill this role the second time. Recall what Jesus told Peter about John. "If I want him to remain til I come . . ," Jesus did not mean that John would live for a couple thousand years but that John would not be killed during the judgement years but be present on earth (remain) and be present at Jesus' second coming. This means he shows up before Jesus' second coming.
(As an aside, John's epistles, in part, are directed to the remnant who will survive the judgement years. Peter's epistles are directed, in part, to those who will be be killed for Jesus (like he was) during the judgement years. Also, Jesus' teachings, like the sermon on the mount, before His death and resurrection took place, were also directed, in part, to this chosen remnant in the wilderness during the judgement years, who will, at that time, not yet "be saved in one day" until their crucified and resurrected Messiah is revealed at His second coming.
I speculate that Elijah and Enoch will show up in Israel before Moses and John I am thinking these two will be involved in teaching the 144,000 this summer, and then sealing them, as described in Revelation, and this likely taking place this August 26-ish, or Pentecost on God's accurate calendar for Israel. This true Pentecost might be when Enoch returns, for this is the same timing of when he was raptured per Jewish tradition.
Again, I am thinking the Body of Christ was not given the calendar that God gave the children of Israel in the scriptures. Israel was. Paul tells us to let no man judge us in terms of feasts, new moons and sabbaths because the substance of those types/shadows is Jesus, in Whom we are made complete. Our inheritance is not of the earth but is of celestial places. At the war of Michael against the evil one mentioned in Revelation, where Satan is cast to earth out of celestial dimensions (I am thinking at mid-judgement years), one reason expressed for the "casting down" is that there is "no more room" for Satan and his minions. Why? I am thinking that a portion of the body of Christ are going to finally take up our positions in that realm. This is not to say we will not in some ways be actively involved in doing things on earth during the 1000 year "day of rest".
However, Paul also explains that the feasts, new moons, sabbaths, and ultimately Israel's calendar tied to these, are a "shadow of things to come". This is the basis for this presentation of my current thinking and anticipations.
Out of all of the above, what do I personally anticipate in the coming days?
As expressed in my prior posts, I am thinking judgement will start on the "end of the church age Babylon" the night of July 4, the end of our 70th "anniversary year" since Israel became a nation. I think that Jesus gave the nations, and this Babylon in particular, an extra 50 days of grace by referencing our "anniversary years" instead of starting Babylon's last 70 years right when Israel became a nation. There are 50 days between May 14, 1948 and July 4, 1948.
July 4/5 the moon is also in the constellation Aquarius and its associated constellations Pegasus and Cygnus. Per 2 Timothy 4:6-8, Paul gave clues that pointed to this constellation group as he also knew his departure was nigh, or right on the cusp. Being "poured out as a drink offering" points to Aquarius as the picture of a man pouring out a vessel's contents onto the ground. Pegasus, a winged horse, points to a depature like Elijah experienced. Cygnus has stars whose meanings include "judge", "he who returns", and "bringing of rewards". All of these are alluded to by Paul in 2 Timothy 4:6-8. So, from this, I have speculated that whenever we go home in some future month, that the moon would have just been in Aquarius. July 4th/5th, when the moon is in Aquarius, is just prior to the high watch day of July 7/8 that I am considering for when we might go home.
The night of July 4th might also be the 15th day of the 3rd month in Israel, yet still being on the constellation calendar. Recall that it was on the 15th day of the 3rd month in Exodus 19 that Israel was gathered at the foot of Sinai, also echoing what the Swedish boy saw in his dream. I am now wondering if on the night of July 4, if judgement does start on Babylon, if some of us at that very time will have it miraculously revealed to us that we have three days to let others in the body know that they are to get ready before Jesus comes on Sunday. This would be consistent with what God did with Moses in Exodus 19.
I, for one, really feel like I need to know from God, in no uncertain terms, when Jesus is truly coming before I can give other folks the heads-up. Even though I believe I am now seeing how a number of pieces are fitting together, I am still not 100% certain. Being incorrect so many times prior has a way of making a person a bit gun-shy of proclaiming anything. Perhaps, in God's plan, and because He is Love and Grace to us, He may just give us a truly miraculous heads-up, just like He did through Moses for Israel, essentially telling us to get ready for Jesus is coming down on the third day during a loud trumpet blast. This is actually the very thing the Swedish boy saw in his dream.
