"Steve Ende. Pentecost is June 8"

 
Dear Doves
 
The Jewish date for Shavuot/Pentecost is , June 8-9. A Wednesday, Ancient Jewish weddings most often held on a Wednesday, widows on a Thursday,
 
Lag B'Omer is a good Possibility for the Rapture

Lag Ba'Omer is a joyous holiday but no one is sure what it celebrates. The Talmud mentions a plague that is thought to have killed 24,000 of Rabbi Akiva's students during one Omer, and some have suggested that Lag Ba'Omer is celebratory because the plague abated on the 33rd day. Others have suggested that Lag Ba'Omer is connected to Rabbi Akiva's support of Simon Bar Kokhba, a Jewish rebel leader against Rome. The Romans responded to Bar Kokhba's revolt with incredible brutality, but perhaps Lag Ba'Omer was a day when either the Jews won a victory or there was a brief respite from the violence. (Ultimately, Bar Kokbha's rebellion failed.) The military connection is supported by the tradition of taking children to open fields to play with toy bows and arrows on Lag Ba'Omer.

Observing Lag Ba'Omer

Lag Ba'Omer is a time during the Counting of the Omer when people can celebrate. While the Omer is a time of mourning, on Lag Ba'Omer marriages can be performed, children are taken to parks to play, and people often gather for large bonfires. The fires represent the light of the Torah.

Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar (an important Kabbalistic text), also died on the 33rd day of the Omer. In Israel many people commemorate his death by visiting his grave in the northern town of Meron. The anniversary of his death is a day for celebration because it is believed he revealed the secrets of the Torah to his students before he

I'm Partial to Savout as my favorite pick for the church's departure Because this year it falls on the 8th.
8 is the day after 7, God's "perfect" number. 8 is the number of new cycles and beginnings. That's why there were 8 people in Noh's ark........they started the human race again.
 
The re-birth of Israel in 1948 was picked by God for the start of Ezekiel's bones coming together
1948+70=2018
God will keep his redemption plan on His Count 1=2011, 2=2012, 3=2013, 4= 2014 , 5=2015, 6=2016, 7=2017 (Perfect number) 8=2018 (New Cycle, Called the Millinum Kingdom)
 
1948 is a "marker" the Lord has given us to pay attention to
God has also given us signs and seasons as His Appointments.....Sun, Moon, Stars all tell His Story
There have been 7 Tetrads that fall on His appointments since the Birth of Christ. With the 8th in 2014-2015
 
Blood%20moon%209-1.jpgHere the Lord has most likely marked the middle of the Tribulation and the "Wrath of the Lamb" Why I strongly lean this way is Because of the timing of these 7 and soon 8th Tetrads.
 
Here are the years of the 8 Tetrads...8!! This one will herald the Return of Christ into His Milinial Kingdom
 
 
 

162-3 AD-Eclipses fall on Passover and Tabernacles

795-6                       falls on Passover and Yom Kippur

842-43                     falls on Passover and Yom Kippur

860-61                     falls on Passover and Yom Kippur

1493-94                   falls on Passover and Trumpets

1949-50                   falls on Passover and Tabernacles   Note the Patterns

1967-68                   falls on Passover and Tabernacles

2014-15                   falls on Passover and Tabernacles

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's line them up side by side
 
 

The dates and Years just can not be a coincidence. Can they?

 

     #1 162-163 AD Passover/Tabernacles                           #5 1493-1494 AD Passover/Trumpets   

 

It will be 634 years to the next tetrad                                It will be 457 years to the next tetrad

*In 634 AD Islam stars to Rise Syria falls                         In 457 BC Artaxerxes decrees Ezra to build

In 634.  Petra is first City. Jerusalem in 636                     Jerusalem. Ezra 7:11                                                                  

                                                                                                

       

#2 795-796 AD Passover/Yom Kippur                             #6 1949-1950 AD Passover/Tabernacles

Note how the 1948’s seem to want to point us  to complete cycle or circle.

There 2 1948 and 2 4819

 

 It is more than interesting that Genesis 48:19 is 1948 backwards.

Coincidence?

You tell me.

 


There is 48 years to the next Tetrad    1948 Backwards      there are 19 years to the next tetrad

 

 


#3 842-843 AD Passover/Yom Kippur                              #7 1967-1968 AD Passover/Tabernacles

                                                                                                                                                                               

19 Yrs to 860 AD                         1948 here  also              There are 48 years to the next tetrad

Genesis 48:19…wow                                                           Do you se the 1948 here? Wow.

1948 Backwards

 

 

860-861 AD Passover/Yom Kippur                                       2014-2015 AD Passover/Tabernacles

There is 634 to the next tetrad

Note how 634 bookends the first 4

Tetrads. Coincidence?

 
Do you see the 634 Bookends the first 4 Tetrads? And that 1948 is "backwards"?
Do you also see 1948 across
Now go read Genisis 48:19

Genesis 48:19

But his father refused and said, "I know, my son, I know; he also will become a people and he also will be great. However, his younger brother shall be greater than he, and (V)his descendants shall become a multitude of nations."

 20(W)He blessed them that day, saying,
         "By you
Israel will pronounce blessing, saying,
         'May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh!'"
         Thus he put Ephraim before Manasseh.

 21Then Israel said to Joseph, "Behold, I am about to die, but (X)God will be with you, and (Y)bring you back to the land of your fathers.

 22"I give you one portion more than your brothers, (Z)which I took from the hand of the Amorite with my sword and my bow."

Wow- do you believe this?  How did God do that? Had you ever caught that Genesis 48:19 was 1948 backwards……Hey, there’s that backwards thing again. Hmm. Did the feast go backwards in order to point us back to Genesis? Are all our answers in Genesis?

 

The book of Psalms is the 19th in the Bible and if you count backwards from Revelation its the 48th=1948. There it is again!!

And what do Psalms 110 to 118 show us in Prophecy?

 

hallel-menorah.jpg

 
Now go read these Psalms http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%20111&version=KJV
Note how Psalm 118 has Israel rejoicing in their victory in the Lord http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%20118&version=KJV
Psalm 118:26
26Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
Didn't Jesus say he won't come back until Israel says this?
 
 
Getting back to theTetrads Did you note the one in 1967-1968? I find this 8 again interesting.......20years from 1948. The men of Israel could fight at the age of 20!! Hello.....they fought and got Jerusalem back!!
 
Now watch this
1917 (Belfour Agreement http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration_of_1917 ) + 50 years = 1967= 6 day war
 
A thought about the 1967 6 day war.......Jerusalem captured...........will God "finish" the job and get Israel all the land back? IN ONE DAY???? Will psalm 83 nations be destroyed in ONE DAY?
Edom= Jordan
The Ishmmaelites = Jordan
Moab = Jordan
Ammon = Jordan
Hagrites = Syria
Gebal/Byblos = Lebanon
Tyre = Lebanon
Assyria = Northern Iraq/ Aram, but really all over the "Near East"
Philistia = Gaza
Descendants of Lot = Jordan
Amalekites = Israel's southern Desert

 

OK, now let's take 1967-1968 tetrad + 50 years = 2017-2018. The year I believe Jesus Christ's foot will touch the Mount od Olives. So on the count of 8 Jesus takes us into the First Millennium year of 2018-2019.
Jesus returns on Tabernacles 2017

Why are there two beginning to the year? Nisan the first of all months and yet Rosh Ha Shanah the New Year in the seventh month of Tishri? This is not an accident; rather it grows out of a notion underlying the Jewish calendar. The notion of two kinds of time. Historical and cyclic. (Remember this as it is very important for later)

Historical time is a constant linear movement in a upward direction centered on progress and development. It’s time created by humans. It is found in clocks with there minute and second hands and in calendars discarded at the end of the year. The unchanging Sun is it’s symbol.

Cyclical time is circular and consists of reoccurring patterns. It is established by nature and is found in the four seasons. It’s symbol is the MOON.  The Jewish calendar is cyclic and depends on the moon

 

Yom Kippur Falls on the 10th of Tishri. It bring to close the 10 days of repentance. The entry to the Holy of Holies was only allowed on Yom Kippur. And only to the high priest.

On this day we are reminded to remember our relationship with God. God says turn to me and I will turn to you.

Sukkot=Creating Shelter

Also called Tabernacles or Booths. Were the Jews remember there wanderings for 40 years. Sukkot was chosen for the dedication of Solomon’s Temple. And I find that most interesting as Jesus will sit on the thrown of David  that Solomon built at his second coming

Lev 23:42

Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the LORD for seven days; on the first day there shall be a Sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a Sabbath-rest. 40 And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days. 41 You shall keep it as a feast to the LORD for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.’”

This will be celebrated when Christ reigns during the Millennium.

Zechariah 14:16 

 16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

In biblical times this was the most important Festival. Psalm 118 (there’s that 8 again) is read during this Festival. I find that important as I see the Menorah in Psalms 111-118 and representing the tribulation years.

********************************************************************************************

Shemini Atzeret …….The most important thing you MUST get!! The 8th day

...On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Sukkot, seven days for the L-RD... on the eighth day, there shall be a holy convocation for you. -Leviticus 23:34

Tishri 22, the day after the seventh day of Sukkot, is the holiday Shemini Atzeret. In Israel, Shemini Atzeret is also the holiday of Simchat Torah. Outside of Israel, where extra days of holidays are held, only the second day of Shemini Atzeret is Simchat Torah: Shemini Atzeret is Tishri 22 and 23, while Simchat Torah is Tishri 23.

From the  book;  “The Jewish Holidays”

Literally means "the assembly of the eighth (day)." Rabbinic literature explains the holiday this way: our Creator is like a host, who invites us as visitors for a limited time, but when the time comes for us to leave, He has enjoyed himself so much that He asks us to stay another day. Another related explanation: Sukkot is a holiday intended for all of mankind, but when Sukkot is over, the Creator invites the Jewish people to stay for an extra day, for a more intimate celebration.

Shemini Atzeret and Simhat Torah are preceded by Sukkot, again seven days followed by one day, but here there is no intervening period as there is between Pesah and Shavout.

Shemini Atzeret is the the 8th day. That is, the day after 7.  7 being the perfect number in Judaism, signifies a complete unit of time-each week ends with the seventh day, Shabbat. Thus, the eighth day is the day after time. It is the end of BOTH KINDS OF TIME It is thus not just the promise of  redemption but the actual moment of it. God said “remain with me an extra day” a time beyond time.

Shemini Atzeret is a taste of the messianic, of a time when Torah, the Holy One, and Israel will be one.  This comes to a climax with Simhat Torah. Instead of circling around the Torah scrolls as we did on Sukkot, during hoshanot we circled with the Torah scrolls. We take the connecting link between us and God-our ketubah, as it were-and circle around an apparently empty space filled with the One who fills everything.

Simhat Torah celebrate a Torah of Joy, A Torah without restrictions or sense of burden. We circle God seven times with the Torah. And then no more. There is no 8th circling. We read from the last portion of the Torah right before we enter the promised land.

Dear Reader I hope you can see that I THINK….Hope………but can not prove that God will use a day count starting with 1. And I believe in 2001 we got a 10 year warning and our count is about to start now in 2011. We had 3 solar eclipses on AV 1 in 2008(another 10 years block of time to repent, 2008 ,2009,and 2010. I believe they served as a warning. I assume you know the history of the 9th of AV and Israel. Not Good….Might the Tribulation start? Time will tell.

Well, will you find it interesting that the 9th of AV this year is AUGUST 9, 2011? Hmm, another coincidence?(Please go up and click on the 9th of AV link) 9 is the number of judgement?
 
Does WW 3 kick off around that time?
1. The Alhambra Decree, issued March 31, 1492, ordered all Jews to leave Spain by the end of July 1492. July 31, 1492 was Tisha B'Av. (9th of AV)
Note that if you use a Jewish calendar converter to check this, it may show July 31 as the 27th of Tammuz. If so, the converter has failed to take into account the Gregorian Reformation, which skipped 11 days on the calendar. If you add the 11 missing days and convert August 11 instead of July 31, you will see that "August 11" 1492 is 9 Av. DID YOU SEE THIS DATE? Columbus discovered America.....Next years of 1493-94 had a Tetrad!!

1493 AD Columbus' Second Voyage - After Columbus returns to Spain with strange animals, a live Indian and other unsusual items Queen Isabella grants Columbus enormous priviledges. He is sent back with 1,500 men and a fleet of 17 ships as the governor of the new land.

1494 AD Treaty of Tordesillas - The Treaty of Tordesillas was signed which divided the world between Portuguese and Spanish lands. The Spanish received all of the land to the West and the Portuguese to the East. This gave Portugal Africa while Spain received all of the new world with the exception of Brazil.


I just find this all so intriguing, don't you? Amen
