According to our Creator’s calendar, the celestial event of the Shoemaker/Levy-9 Comet began on the ninth day of the fifth month, named Av, on July 16th 1994 AD. Yehovah’s 21st anniversary of that event will about fall this year on July 26th, which is a Sunday, which I think will be the start of the seven year tribulation period.
Comet Shoemaker/Levy-9 had twenty-three fragments when first discovered in March of 1993. From July 16th thru the 22nd, only twenty-one of those fragments hit Jupiter during those seven days. Here is the interpretation of that celestial sign as I see it. Either the start of, or the agreement to begin building, the third Temple will occur about July 26, 2015, pending on the sighting of the renewed Moon for the month of Av.
In any case, it will be the ninth day of the fifth month. Two Jewish years after that (August 4, 2017?), the Temple should be completed and the Ark of the Covenant revealed. The seven days of impacts indicate that the seven years of the tribulation (3 ½ mild, 3 ½ great) start this July, between the 25th and 27th, 2015.
Here are the reasons for my conclusions. First, in 1st Kings 7:13 – 16, it tells us that King Solomon obtained the services of Hiram, a master craftsman of brass. He made two pillars, each eighteen cubits high, and twelve cubits in diameter. A biblical cubit is about 19 inches. He also made two chapiters of brass to sit on top of the pillars, being five cubits high.
When you add five cubits to eighteen cubits, you have a height of twenty-three cubits, which is just about forty feet tall. Together, the two columns in the front of the temple were named Boaz (force), and the right column was named Jachin (fulcrum). The Temple was completed in 1011 BC, taking seven years and six months to build.
Secondly, in 2nd Kings 25:13 – 17, it tells us that the Babylonians had ransacked Jerusalem and the Temple some 425 years after it was built by Solomon. When they went into the Temple to confiscate the Ark and Table of Shewbread, the room where the artifacts were kept was empty. The two brass pillars where eighteen cubits high, but the chapiters on top of the pillars were only three cubits high. So what happened to the two missing cubits? The chapiters had sunk two cubits inside the brass pillars. Guess how that happened.
Thirdly, in Jeremiah 52:20 – 22, we read that when the pillars and chapiters were taken down and carried off to Babylon, the chapiters were once again five cubits high. But now, we learn that the pillars of brass were hollow, being about three inches thick around. Jeremiah and Levite priests had operated a sand hydraulic system that activated an elevator system to lower the gold artifacts below the Temple Mount, and hid them in a cave which was about 31 feet below the spot that Jesus would be crucified about 613 years later.
I am persuaded that the present Muslim Mosque will come down first, and great delight will be in Israel as they begin construction of the long awaited Temple of Yehovah. I hope to see it, before the man of sin defiles it in 2018 AD, during or after the Feast of Dedication. Perhaps others have more insight on how war in the Middle East might play out. My guess is that Israel will defeat her enemies as “evil fire” (nukes) flies across the land (Zech. 5), but I don’t know when.
But let me make this clear. There is no “pre”, or “mid” tribulation rapture. When Yeshua (Jesus) appears in the sky, for all to see Him, and He destroys the armies of the anti-Christ, only then are the dead in Christ raised. The living and once dead saints will be changed to “glorified” bodies, and they shall be gathered by the angels to meet Yehovah in the air…, after the seventh trumpet!
Yes, the next seven years will be an “interesting” time. But think of it as a woman in her last hours of travail, before the relief of a successful birth. Creation of our universe was over 4 billion years ago. But for the last billion years, Earth has suffered from the evil of Lucifer, and he is down to his last 1,015 years, and he knows it. Rather than to submit, repent, and accept his punishment, he wants to deceive and destroy all of mankind that he can, and take them down with him. It puzzles me why certain people are willing to serve him, knowing that there is no future with him, such as the Illuminati, Skull & Bones, and the Inner Circle of Catholicism.
How are the rest of us to survive? It’s not all “doom and gloom”. I suggest to all that they leave their trinitarian assemblies (since they do not teach the truth of salvation) and seek out churches that teach the “Oneness doctrine”. Today, they are known as Apostolic Pentecostal assemblies (Jesus Only). They are “the elect” that Jesus will come for. If you decide “that’s not for me”, you are saying “Heaven is not for you”, and you will have a VERY hard time refusing the “mark of the Beast”, starting in the 2018-2019 timeframe.
This, and only this, is the truth of obtaining salvation (the kingdom of God). Repent of all sin, be water immersed using the name of the Lord Jesus (Yeshua the Messiah), and receive the Holy Ghost (of Yeshua), evidenced by the spirit speaking, aka “other tongues”, whether or not you have the human power of speech.
Water baptism is the only way to obtain remission of sins. The blood of Jesus is the cleansing agent, and is applied within the water when calling on His name (Acts 22:16). When the Holy Ghost is received, it makes an audible sound (Matt. 3:17, Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, Acts 10:46, Acts 19:6). You don’t “try for tongues”, you let it happen.
There are many Jews and gentiles that won’t have salvation, and neither accepting the mark of the Beast, which will survive into the 1000 Year Millennium. I say to all, when the “brimstone hits the fan”, do not cause trouble. Do not riot or act disorderly, giving authorities an excuse to impose Martial Law and internment. Peacefully resist evil compliance, and do not ever accept the “mark of the Beast”. If you do, you will be forever tormented in the Lake of Fire, a thousand years from now.
