Covenants, Pentecost, and Satan the “counterfeiter”
I am perhaps delusional at worst……an over active imagination at best. But I write with hope that I have been given some clues to our Blessed Hope.
As you recall from my last long, long post……..I left wondering was my dream a 1 year warning to our rapture. Dream was December 9, 2009.
I can not tell you how I was lead to look at Pentecost, God’s Covenants, and how that lead to Satan being a counterfeiter of all things holy………I just “got there”
So I put a theory to the test.
If the rapture is sometime between now and December 9, 2010-THE LAST DAY OF HANUKHA
If Satan counterfeits all things Godly
If the 2014-15 Tetrad means something
If the Tribulation starts immediately after the church is gone
Where is everything 3 ½ years from now?
12-2010 to 12-2011 12-2011 to 12- 2012 12-2012 to 12-2013 = 3 years
Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
December 9, 2013 to June 9, 2014 = 6 months
I contend that Satan will counterfeit Pentecost in 2014…….The Anti-christ will ride into Jerusalem on a white horse and enter the temple and desecrate it……THE ABOMANATION OF DESOCRATION
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
My friends lets look at the tetrad……….I believe this signals the START of the WRATH OF GOD
Nisan 1 = earthquake and Satan cast out of Heaven
Covenants and Pentecost all information is from
What does Pentecost mean?
It was one of the three mandatory feasts held every year. Pentecost means '50', and it occurred 50 days after the first barley harvest. Pentecost celebrated the ingathering of the wheat harvest. Pentecost is symbolic of the harvest of souls into God's kingdom.
But do remember that it was on Pentecost that God poured out His Spirit and the Church was born and that a harvest of 3000 souls were saved that day and baptized in water, (Acts 2:41). Again this answers to Nisan 10 when Israel crossed the Jordan and they too were all baptized in the Jordan, and this supplies us with yet another thematic connection between the dates of Nisan 10 and Pentecost! For on both those dates a people were baptized in the Jordan into a new kingdom. The main difference being that on Pentecost AD 30, they were baptized in the Holy Spirit first, which event marks the circumcision of the heart and tongue by the fire of God, rather than the circumcision of the flesh by the knife of a man.
573 BC Nisan 10, plus 1260 + 1260 years = AD 1948 Pentecost
Israel became a nation Sivan 5 on the 360 calendar, which was May 14 evening to May 15 evening in 1948. Israel became a nation at midnight May 14th ending, in 1948, upon the termination of the British mandate.
Moreover, since God poured out His Holy Spirit on Pentecost AD 30, hence, Jesus brought a people ---the "Church" into their 'promised-land' rest that day also. The Church was 'born', just as natural Israel was born again as a nation in 1948. Both entered a "Promised Land" on Pentecost.
What is significant about the time frame of "1260 plus 1260" days (or years) in relation to Ezekiel 40 or in relation to Israel becoming a nation?
There are a number of reasons why 1260 is significant: for this is the very time frame used in the bible to symbolize all that has been said so far as to what Nisan 10 and Pentecost represent! This is the time frame that matches the prophecy.
Firstly, the prophecy of the "1260 days" found in Revelation 11 directly ties into Ezekiel 40. Most any commentary on the bible will point this out. The one prophecy is adapted from the other. In both cases there is the measuring of the temple with a rod while in a vision. Thus, to have this very time frame of '1260-times-two' years between the measuring of the temple by Ezekiel unto when Israel again became a nation is most amazing! This is the time frame given in Revelation that concerns this prophecy in Ezekiel!
Rev 11:1 I was then given a stick that looked like a measuring-rod, and was told, "Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count those who are worshiping in the temple.
Rev 11:2 But do not measure the outer courts, because they have been given to the heathen, who will trample on the Holy City for forty-two months.
Rev 11:3 I will send my two witnesses dressed in sackcloth, and they will proclaim God's message during those 1260 days." ("42 months" is 1260 days on 360 calendar; i.e., 42 x 30 days-in-a-month equals 1260 days, which is half-a-seven year period of 1260 plus 1260 days.)
Eze 40:3 And he brought me thither; and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.
Eze 40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thy heart upon all that I shall show thee; for, to the intent that I may show them unto thee, art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.
Moreover, the first place that the bible explicitly mentions the time frame of 1260 days is found in Revelation 11:3. There it implies the giving of "power" to the "Two Witnesses." And this narrative obviously alludes to when God likewise 'poured out His Holy Spirit' on the disciples at Pentecost so that they might have power to witness! Thus again we have the connection between Pentecost and 1260, and therefore, in turn, the connection back to the 1260 years plus 1260 years to Pentecost, 1948.
Rev 11:3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.
Act 1:8 but ye will receive power, the Holy Spirit having come upon you, and ye shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Act 2:1-2 And when the day of Pentecost was now come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Moreover, the Two Witnesses come back to life after 3.5 days (at the end of the 1260 days of prophesying) when a "breath enters them." This, again, is the imagery of Pentecost and of Ezekiel 37.
Moreover, in Revelation 12 we have the second (and last) explicit reference to "1260 days". In Rev. 12 the 1260-day time-period is patterned after the time when Israel wandered in the wilderness 40 years. This is significant since Israel wandered in the wilderness/desert 40 years after she was supposed to enter the Promised land on Pentecost, but did not do so until 40 years later on Nisan 10th; (to be precise, it was 39 years). Thus, the " 1260 days" of Revelation 12 is patterned after a period of time that stretched 40 years between the same two anniversaries that the 1260 plus 1260 years spans. And the theme is the same as well! That is, the 40-year wilderness-wandering spanned from Pentecost, 1445, to Nisan 10, 1406 BC, just as the 1260 years plus 1260 years, (patterned after the 40 years), similarly spanned from Nisan 10, 593 BC, to Pentecost, AD 1948.
Rev 12:5-6 Then she gave birth to a son, who will rule over all nations with an iron rod. But the child was snatched away and taken to God and his throne. The woman fled to the desert, to a place God had prepared for her, where she will be taken care of for 1260 days.
