Part 1 - Time of Jacob's Trouble at hand

7 Alas! for that day will be great , so that none will be like it;

It will be the time of Jacob's [ unequaled ] trouble, but he will be saved out of it!

(Jer 30:7 Ampl)

His Word - Fire shut up in my bones

On April 2, 2014 I had a dream. In my dream I was given a very heavy calibre rifle. In my dream I tried to un-cock the gun, by getting the bullet out of the barrel. I pulled back the bolt handle to pull the bullet out of the barrel. The top of the gun was silver and had many positions into which the bolt handle could be slotted. I fitted it into a few of these positions, just like gear lever is put into a certain gear. Although this was a single shot bolt handle action rifle it also had a magazine, making it semi-automatic. As I was about to pull the trigger and push back the bolt handle into the barrel of the rifle, I accidently bumped the magazine into position, before I could pull the trigger and un-cock the rifle, making it safe for storing. As I pushed the bolt handle into the barrel, I pushed the bullet back into the barrel of the rifle, cocking it, making it ready to shoot against. I knew I could not by accident pull the trigger because it would shoot.

Later we did use this heavy calibre rifle to shoot with, doing some target practise. I remember shooting at a very weak and small item, like a little tin which would be blown to shreds when struck by a bullet. I remember walking to the target and picking up 3-4 huge bullet points, which were lying around the target, the points looking it struck something, but did not do much damage to the heavy bullets, which looked more like heavy calibre bullets points of a pistol.

My dream points to using a very large calibre gun for a very insignificant purpose. I tried not to shoot, but keep loading the bullet into the barrel of the gun. I was always ready for action and found it hard to keep in that which was in me, even if it was not time yet I struggled not to share the awesome things God had shared with me, as the prophet Jeremiah said: 9 If I say , I will not make mention of [ the Lord ] or speak any more in His name, in my mind and heart it is as if there were a burning fire shut up in my bones. And I am weary of enduring and holding it in ; I cannot [ contain it any longer ] . ( Jer 20:9 Ampl)

Jacob's Trouble

On 11 April 2014 I was wondering about all that is going to happen in 2014 and about the significance of the 4 blood moons. I had decided not to read other people's opinions or interpretations of the significance of the 4 blood moons, but to entrust myself to the Holy Spirit and the Lord Yahshua's guidance.

Late that evening, I came to sit before the Lord just to wait upon Him. As I opened my bible, led by the Holy Spirit, I received the prophecy of the prophet Jeremiah about Israel: “7 Alas! for that day will be great , so that none will be like it ; it will be the time of Jacob's [ unequaled ] trouble , but he will be saved out of it . [ Matt. 24:29, 30; Rev. 7:14. ] (Jer 30:7 Ampl)

As I continued to meditate and wait upon the Lord another thought came to me, which gave another indication according to the words of the prophets, which help to understand the significance of the coming 4 blood moons, as was prophesied by the apostle Peter, regards the fulfilment of that which happened in their day, saying: 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days , God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind , and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [ telling forth the divine counsels ] and your young men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [ divinely suggested ] dreams. 18 Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit , and they shall prophesy [ telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God's kingdom ]. 19 And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath , blood and fire and smoking vapour ; 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day of the Lord comes - that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned [ day ]. 21 And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [ invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord--Christ ] shall be saved . [ Joel 2:28-32. ] (Act 2:17-21 Ampl) The apostle Peter confirmed that that which was prophesied by the prophet Joel had being fulfilled. In order to understand what will be fulfilled we need to look at what was fulfilled and how was the prophecy fulfilled?

The prophet Joel saw the future and prophesied about those things which would take place. When we examine the words of the prophets it is very important to remember that when God, who is Spirit, who is on the outside of time or timeless, speaks to a prophet, the prophet sees as God sees. The prophet sees from God's perspective for the specific topic, which the prophet had been enquiring from God. He sees through time, yet sits on the outside of time, just as the Holy Spirit revealed to me when I taken into the eye of God and sat above the circle of the earth, as the prophet Isaiah experienced. With this in mind it is important to note that when the prophets see through time, specific prophetic events, which are linked with one another in the Spirit becomes visible to the prophet. Many times when we read prophetic perditions by the prophets we make the mistake of interpreting the events as if they would follow one another directly after each other in the same period, chronologically, but fail to see the prophetic seasons, which separates the fulfilment of different prophetic events from one another in time.

I have always said, only a prophet will be able to understand a prophet. With this in mind, let's consider the word of the Lord to the prophet Jeremiah, as was prophesied: 1 BLOW THE trumpet in Zion ; sound an alarm on My holy Mount [ Zion ]. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of [ the judgment of ] the Lord is coming ; it is close at hand --[ Ezek. 7:2-4; Amos 5:16-20. ] 2 A day of darkness and gloom , a day of clouds and of thick mists and darkness , like the morning dawn spread upon the mountains; so there comes a [ heathen, hostile ] people numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations . 3 A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and none has escaped [ the ravages of the devouring hordes ]. 4 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses , and like war horses and horsemen , so do they run. 5 Like the noise of chariots [ Tanks and armour vehicles ] on the tops of the mountains they leap--like the noise of a flame of fire devouring the stubble [ flame throwers & fighter planes ], like a mighty people set in battle array [ Israel surrounded by her enemies ]. [ Rev. 9:7, 9. ] 6 Before them the peoples are in anguish; all faces become pale. 7 They run like mighty men ; they climb the wall like men of war [ soldiers invading the city ]. They march each one [ straight ahead ] on his ways, and they do not break their ranks. 8 Neither does one thrust upon another; they walk everyone in his path. And they burst through and upon the weapons , yet they are not wounded and do not change their course. 9 They leap upon the city; they run upon the wall; they climb up on and into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief. 10 The earth quakes before them ;[ground to ground combat / warfare on land ] the heavens tremble .[ air to air combat / warfare in the air ] The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining .[ the sky is covered with smoke and fires of bombs dropped and explosions taking place ] [ Rev. 9:2-4; 16:14. ] 11 And the Lord utters His voice before His army, for His host is very great, and [ they are ] strong and powerful who execute [ God's ] word . For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible , and who can endure it ? [ Isa. 26:20, 21; 34:1-4, 8; Rev. 6:16, 17. ] (Joel 2:1-11 Ampl) The prophet calls this army, which will come against the land of Israel and against the city of Jerusalem, the army of YHWH, who executes God's judgement upon those in Israel and Jerusalem. This army is not YHWH's army, but a foreign army, which He will allow to bring about His judgement, because they refused His gracious, loving outstretched arm of righteousness. Therefore they bring judgement upon themselves.

The prophet Daniel spoke about the day when Israel will be invaded by a foreign army, as was prophesied: 16 But he [ Antiochus the Great ][ Illuminati chosen person, who through secret societies, making use of the United Nations ] who comes against him [ from Syria ][ 3 horns being removed – Libya/Egypt/Syria ] shall do according to his own will [ setting up the abomination of desolation – beginning World War III ], and none shall stand before him; he shall stand in the glorious land [ of Israel ], and in his hand shall be destruction [ Full backing and power of the United Nations and the European Union ] and all the land shall be in his power. 17 He [ Antiochus the Great ] shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom [ The entire United Nations strike power will be deployed ], and with him upright conditions and terms of peace [ under the auspice of a peace agreement, promising to be the peace keeper ], and he shall perform them [ by making an agreement with the king of the South ][ Syria and Lebanon and Palestine and Gaza - The Moslem brotherhood and the nations of the Arab League of nations ]. (Dan 11:16-17 Ampl )

Since Israel will seem defenceless, being surrounded on every side by hostile Muslim nations, the United Nations, under the auspice of peace, will promise to help protect the small nation of Israel from potentially destructive forces, while in actual fact it will them themselves, through secret societies and Jesuit insiders, controlling and instigating wars against one another, to fulfil that which was revealed and prophesied by the prophet Daniel and was also confirmed to us as a witness that the appointed time has been fulfilled: 31 And armed forces of his [ United Nations Peace Corps = White Horse rider ] shall appear [ in the holy land ][ Israel ] and they shall pollute the sanctuary [ Combined Muslim and Jewish Temple ] , the [ spiritual ] stronghold, and shall take away [ stop ] the continual [ daily burnt offering ][ breaking the nuclear agreement ] ; and they shall set up [ in the sanctuary ] [ optional ] the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate [ probably an altar to a pagan god ]. ( Dan 11:31 Ampl) Many who know history will know that Antiochus Ephiphanes did defile the temple and did slaughter a pig in the temple, which was an abdominal thing to do. This prophecy was partially re-fulfilled after this, just as Yahshua had prophesied would happen, saying: “Do you see all these? Truly I tell you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.” (Matt 24:2 Ampl) Later, when asked when these things would take place, specifically referring to when the temple would be broken down, Yahshua answered them: 15 So when you see the appalling sacrilege [ the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate ] , spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place - let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [ this ]--[ Dan. 9:27; 11:31; 12:11. ] 16 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains ; 17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down and go into the house to take anything; 18 And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his overcoat. 19 And alas for the women who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days! (Matt 24:15-19 Ampl) Yahshua said that the timing of the destruction of the temple will be accompanied and forerun by different circumstances and prophetic fulfilments. He more specifically pointed out that when we see the abomination, which will cause desolation we must know that the destruction of Jerusalem is near.

The writer of the book of Luke explains in more detail, what the term ‘ abomination of that make desolate' means, as is written: 20 But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies , then know and understand that its desolation has come near . 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains , and let those who are inside [ the city ] get out of it, and let not those who are out in the country come into it; 22 For those are days of vengeance [ of rendering full justice or satisfaction ] , that all things that are written may be fulfilled . 23 Alas for those who are pregnant and for those who have babies which they are nursing in those days! For great misery and anguish and distress shall be upon the land and indignation and punishment and retribution upon this people. 24 They will fall by the mouth and the edge of the sword and will be led away as captives to and among all nations ; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (completed) . [ Isa. 63:18; Dan. 8:13. ] (Luke 21:20-24 Ampl) Luke described that at the time when the abomination of desolation has been set up, which is 1290 days after the burnt offering or fire offering has been stopped, then the circumstances which would cause desolation will be in place, as was prophesied: 11 And from the time that the continual burnt offering [ Zech 5 – Flying scroll = Container with fire offering {woman} inside ] is taken away [ stopped ] and the abomination that makes desolate is set up [The Illuminati, through secret societies is setting up the plans to destroy both the east and the west against one another ], there shall be 1,290 days [ 1260 + 30 / 3.5 year with leap month ]. [ Dan. 11:31. ] (Dan 12:11 Ampl) As was revealed to me, the stopping of the fire offering is not only the stopping of the sacrifices in the temple, but also the stopping of the manufacturing of nuclear weapons and the searching for fissile material to prevent more nuclear bombs from being built.

A Nuclear Proliferation agreement has been set up 4 years ago by President Barack Obama on the 14 April 2010 , with 47 nations of the world entering into a strong agreement. Was this the 7 year agreement which the prophet Daniel spoke of or was it only a forerunner of that which was shown, among a series of 7 signs in the heavens, one of these combinations of signs being a ‘pulled up hand brake and a mine sweeper ,' by Yahshua to two witnesses?

United Nations Nuclear Summit 2010

President Barack Obama said a summit on nuclear security is concluding with a strong agreement among 47 countries that the world's nuclear stockpiles must be secured to reduce the chance of terrorists getting an atomic device . “We have seized the opportunity,” Obama said during a news conference at the conclusion of a two-day summit on nuclear security in Washington . “The American people will be safer and the world will be more secure.” In a 12-point summit communiqué, the U.S. and 46 other nations gathered for the meeting pledged “sustained and effective international cooperation” on Obama's goal of securing all vulnerable nuclear material in four years . The representatives and heads of state from around the world spent two days discussing a plan of action for locking down global nuclear stockpiles. Obama has said the most significant security threat is the potential for al-Qaeda or other terrorist groups to acquire the materials to develop a nuclear weapon through theft or illicit sales. Opening the summit's plenary session earlier today, the U.S. president said the world must recognize the changed nature of the nuclear threat. “Two decades after the end of the Cold War, we face a cruel irony of history — the risk of a nuclear confrontation between nations has gone down , but the risk of a nuclear attack has gone up ,” Obama said. That requires “ we summon the will, as nations, as partners, to do what this moment in history demands ,” he said.

Obama's Nuclear Summit Ends With 47 Nations Pledging to Secure Stockpiles

Just before this meeting, coming back from Russia, President Obama renewed a new Proliferation treaty between the United States and the Russian Federation, on the 8 April 2010 , called the New START Treaty, which call for both countries to stop manufacturing nuclear weapons and to reduce their nuclear weapons by 50% in the next 7 years:

NEW START

New START (for St rategic A rms R eduction T reaty) (Russian: ???-III, SNV-III ) is a nuclear arms reduction treaty between the United States of America and the Russian Federation with the formal name of Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms . It was signed on 8 April 2010 in Prague , [3] [4] and, after ratification, [5] [6] entered into force on 5 February 2011 . [1] It is expected to last at least until 2021.

New START replaced the Treaty of Moscow ( SORT ), which was due to expire in December 2012. In terms of name, it is a follow-up to the START I treaty, which expired in December 2009, the proposed START II treaty, which never entered into force, and the START III treaty, for which negotiations were never concluded.

Under terms of the treaty, the number of strategic nuclear missile launchers will be reduced by half. A new inspection and verification regime will be established, replacing the SORT mechanism. It does not limit the number of operationally inactive stockpiled nuclear warheads , that remain in the high thousands in both the Russian and American inventories. [7]

These obligations must be met within seven years from the date the treaty enters into force. The treaty will last ten years , with an option to renew it for up to five years upon agreement of both parties . [11] The treaty will enter into force when the United States and Russia exchange instruments of ratification, following approval by the U.S. Senate and the Federal Assembly of Russia . [12] However, the United States began implementing the reductions even before the treaty was ratified. [13]

After the deceptive plan of the Illuminati has been set up, to cause a war between the eastern and the western alliance of nations, to bring about the destruction of a 3 rd of mankind, Jerusalem will be surround by the Muslim nations, which surrounds the nation of Israel, as was prophesied: 15 Wherefore glorify the Lord in the east [ whether in the region of daybreak's lights and fires, or in the west ]; [ glorify ] the name of the Lord, the God of Israel in the isles and coasts of the [ Mediterranean ] Sea . 16 From the uttermost parts of the earth have we heard songs: Glory to the Righteous One [ and to the people of Israel ]! But I say, Emaciated I pine away, I pine away. Woe is me! The treacherous dealers deal treacherously ! Yes, the treacherous dealers deal very treacherously . 17 Terror and pit [ of destruction ] and snare are upon you , O inhabitant of the earth! 18 And he who flees at the noise of the terror will fall into the pit ; and he who comes up out of the pit will be caught in the snare . For the windows of the heavens are opened [ as in the deluge ], and the foundations of the earth tremble and shake . (Isa 24:15-18 Ampl)

Yahshua refers to this time period as the ‘times' of the gentiles. Prophetically hidden in Yahshua's words he did not refer to the ‘time' of the gentiles, but the ‘times' of the gentiles. The prophet Daniel and the apostle Paul refers to these ‘times' respectively, saying: 24 And as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise ; and another shall arise after them , and he shall be different from the former ones , and he shall subdue and put down three kings [Libya / Egypt / Syria & Lebanon] . 25 And he shall speak words against the Most High [ God ] and shall wear out the saints of the Most High [ the Spanish inquisition and other persecutions against both Jews and Christians ] and think to change the ‘ times ' [ of sacred feasts and holy days ] [ The Roman Catholic Church forced all people to worship on Sunday ] and the law; and the saints shall be given into his hand for a ‘ time', two times, and half a time [ three and one-half years ][ the period of the great tribulation ]. [ Rev. 13:1-6. ] (Dan 7:24-25 Ampl)

And 1 BUT AS to the suitable ‘times' and the precise seasons and dates , brethren, you have no necessity for anything being written to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the [ return of the ] Lord will come [ as unexpectedly and suddenly ] as a thief in the night. 3 When people are saying: “ All is well and secure ,” and, “ There is peace and safety ,”[ Nuclear Proliferation Treaty & securing nuclear weapons ] then in a moment unforeseen destruction (ruin and death) will come [ Abomination of desolation = Nuclear bomb ] upon them as suddenly as labour pains come upon a woman with child ; and they shall by no means escape , for there will be no escape. 4 But you are not in [ given up to the power of ] darkness , brethren, for that day to overtake you by surprise like a thief. 5 For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we do not belong either to the night or to darkness. 6 Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake ( alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard ) and let us be sober ( calm, collected, and circumspect ). 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who are drunk, get drunk at night. 8 But we belong to the day; therefore, let us be sober and put on the breastplate (corslet) of faith and love and for a helmet the hope of salvation . 9 For God has not appointed us to [ incur His ] wrath [ He did not select us to condemn us ], but [ that we might ] obtain [ His ] salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) 10 Who died for us so that whether we are still alive or are dead [ at Christ's appearing ] , we might live together with Him and share His life. 11 Therefore encourage (admonish, exhort) one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another, just as you are doing. (1Thess 5:1-11 Ampl) The apostle Paul prophetically warned the church of the Thessalonians about the time of the coming of the Lord Yahshua and those prophetic events that will take place at that time and how the sons of light, those who walk in the light, must be sober and awake, preparing themselves for that day. He gave them this warning just after he told them how Yahshua was going to come in the clouds to take with Him those who are His, both those who died with Him and those will still be alive at that time, as was prophesied: 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again , even so God will also bring with Him through Jesus those who have fallen asleep [ in death ] . 15 For this we declare to you by the Lord's [ own ] word, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall in no way precede [ into His presence ] or have any advantage at all over those who have previously fallen asleep [ in Him in death ]. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons [ “Come up here” ], with the shout of an archangel [ Michael ], and with the blast of the trumpet of God [ Last trumpet ]. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first . 17 Then we, the living ones who remain [ on the earth ], shall simultaneously be caught up along with [ the resurrected dead ] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air ; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord! 18 Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words. (1Thess 4:14-18 Ampl)

And again 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches [ because of unbelief ], neither will He spare you [ if you are guilty of the same offense ]. 22 Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God : severity toward those who have fallen, but God's gracious kindness to you--provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness ; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away). 23 And even those others [ the fallen branches, Jews ], if they do not persist in [ clinging to ] their unbelief , will be grafted in , for God has the power to graft them in again. 24 For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree , and against nature grafted into a cultivated olive tree , how much easier will it be to graft these natural [ branches ] back on [ the original parent stock of ] their own olive tree. 25 Lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits) , I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery , brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has [ temporarily ] befallen a part of Israel [ to last ] until the full number of the ingathering of the Gentiles has come in , 26 And so all Israel will be saved . (Rom 11:21-26 Ampl) Here Paul revealed that YHWH will continue to graft in those who accept His gracious kindness until the ‘time' of the Gentiles has been fulfilled and completed.

The word for ‘times' refer to the prophetic seasons of God, which are perfectly synchronized with the Feasts of YHWH. Thus, YHWH, in His foreknowledge, knew all along how all these prophetic events would be fulfilled according to and on the feasts days of YHWH. Yahshua has already revealed and explained to me, giving me different prophetic shadow pictures of how prophecy has been fulfilled, which foreshadows prophetic events, which has already been fulfilled several times in history.

1260 & 1290 Prophetic Years

From the time the sacrifices were stopped in 583 BC until 1290 prophetic years later, Jerusalem was surrounded and put under siege, in 632 AD by the Muslims and during that time another pagan temple was set up, in 688 BC , in order to prevent the temple of YHWH from ever being built again. Another 1260 prophetic years later this season also came to a close, on the day of Shavuot or Pentecost, on the 14 May 1948 , when Israel became a state in one day, in fulfilment of prophecy, as the prophet Isaiah prophesied: 6 [ Hark! ] An uproar from the city ! A voice from the temple ! The voice of the Lord, rendering recompense to His enemies ! 7 Before [ Zion ] travailed , she gave birth ; before her pain came upon her, she was delivered of a male child . 8 Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day ? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment ? For as soon as Zion was in labour, she brought forth her children. 9 Shall I bring to the [ moment of ] birth and not cause to bring forth ? says the Lord. Shall I Who causes to bring forth shut the womb? says your God. 10 Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her ; rejoice for joy with her , all you who mourn over her, 11 That you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breasts , that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance and brightness of her glory . (Isa 66:6-11 Ampl ) Just as was prophesied, the nation of Israel became a state in one day. Although this cycle was completed on the 14 May 1948 another was prophesied to commence again around that time. The 1260 and the 1290 prophetic year cycle is one of those ‘times' which are equated with the ‘ time', two ‘times', and half a ‘time' or 3.5 times time period. In this case a ‘time' is equal to 360 prophetic years.

490 Year Prophetic Cycle

Different prophetic ‘times' exists, in which YHWH's times and seasons, depending on the cycle at which the prophet looks can be found, for YHWH is a God of perfect order, so that His Name alone will be exalted. YHWH, in His wisdom, synchronized the day of the redemption of Israel, through their expected Saviour – Yahshua, on the 3 April 33AD with their deliverance from Egypt, 14 Abib, around 14 Nissan 1406-1414 BC, being the Lamb that had to be sacrificed to save the first born of Israel, on the day of Passover, when we consider a 490 years prophetic cycle. Thus, 490 times 3.5 equal 1715 years. This would bring us to around 309 AD, which over the large scale is only 8% off from 33AD . This is approximately in the middle of the 3430 year [ 490 x 7 ] period. Thus in this case a ‘time' is 490 years.

Jubilee Year or 49 Year Cycle

When we consider the prophetic cycle of 49 years or the Jubilee cycle from the time that the king of Persia – Artexerxes m ade the announcement that the Jews can return to Israel in order to rebuilt Jerusalem, between 454-457 BC, until 69 weeks or 483 years later, on the 29AD , the year when Yahshua was appointed by the Holy Spirit as the Anointed One and the Messiah of the World, we find another ‘times; which was synchronized with YHWH's times and seasons, counting from the correct point in history, as was revealed through the prophet Daniel: 25 Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem [ 457BC ] until [ the coming of ] the Anointed One [ 29AD ] , a Prince, shall be seven weeks [ of years ][ 7x7 = 49 ] and sixty-two weeks [ of years ][ 62 x 7 = 434 ] ; it shall be built again with [ city ] square and moat, but in troublous times. 26 And after the sixty-two weeks [ of years ][ 69 x 7 = 483 ] shall the Anointed One be cut off or killed [ Crucifixion of Yahshua ] and shall have nothing [ and no one ] belonging to [ and defending ] Him. (Dan 9:25a Ampl)

7 Year Sabbath Cycle

As Yahshua has revealed to me, a prophet looks through time, into the future and are revealed the prophetic events that fulfil at different ‘times' or on different prophetic cycles, according to that which the Spirit of YHWH reveals to the specific prophet. The angel Gabriel revealed to the prophet Daniel how at different prophetic times, looking through time, different prophetic events relating to the coming of Yahshua will be fulfilled. The Spirit of YHWH revealed the first coming of Yahshua when He was to be appointed as the Messiah, as the apostle Peter told the first gentile convert, the Cornelius, saying: 36 You know the contents of the message which He sent to Israel , announcing the good news (Gospel) of peace by Jesus Christ , Who is Lord of all . 37 The [ same ] message which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee after the baptism preached by John - 38 How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [ Holy ] Spirit and with strength and ability and power ; how He went about doing good and, in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [ the power of ] the devil , for God was with Him . (Act 10:36-38 Ampl) When Yahshua was anointed by the Spirit coming and resting upon Him, when He was baptised by John the Baptist, it was the very day when He was appointed and anointed after 7 weeks and 62 weeks of years, as was prophesied by the prophet Daniel. 3.5 Literal years or 1260 days later , Yahshua was cut off and killed and became the Saviour of the World, on 3 April 33AD , stopping the need for burnt offering and animal sacrifices, once forever.

The Destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70AD

Hidden in the prophet Daniel's revelation he was also shown how the city of Jerusalem would be surrounded and attacked by the Romans in 70 AD, the temple burnt to the ground, not leaving one stone upon another, when Creaser Titus would destroy the city and the sanctuary, as was recorded in history: The Seleucid Kingdom, which arose after the Persians were defeated by Alexander the Great , sought to introduce Greek culture into the Persian world. When the Greeks under Antiochus IV Epiphanes (167BC) , supported by Hellenized Jews (those who had adopted Greek culture), attempted to convert the Jewish Temple to a temple of Zeus , the Jews revolted under the leadership of the Maccabees . After their victory, the Jews rededicated the Temple to God (hence the origins of Hanukkah ) and created an independent Jewish state known as the Hasmonaean Kingdom , which lasted from 165 BCE to 63 BCE, when it came under influence of the Roman Empire . [19] During the early part of Roman rule, the Hasmonaeans remained in power, until the family was annihilated by Herod the Great . Herod came from a wealthy Idumean family and became a very successful client king under the Romans. He significantly expanded the Temple in Jerusalem. [124]

Upon his death the Romans directly ruled Judea and there were frequent changes of policies by conflicting and empire-building Caesars , generals, governors, and consuls who often acted cruelly or attempted to maximize their own wealth and power. Rome's attitudes swung from tolerance to hostility against its Jewish subjects, who had since moved throughout the Empire. The Romans, worshiping a large pantheon , could not readily accommodate the exclusive monotheism of Judaism , and the religious Jews could not accept Roman polytheism . [125] (It was in this tumultuous climate that Christianity first emerged , among a small group of Jews. [126] ) After a famine and riots in 66 CE , the Jews in Judea began a revolt against Rome . The revolt was smashed by Titus Flavius , the son and successor of the Roman emperor Vespasian . [127] In Rome the Arch of Titus still stands , showing enslaved Judeans and a menorah being brought to Rome. It is customary for Jews to walk around, rather than through, this arch. [128]

The Arch of Titus depicts enslaved Judeans and objects from the Temple being brought to Rome.

The Romans destroyed most of Jerusalem but left the Western Wall , a retaining wall of the Temple Mount . [129] After the end of this first revolt, the Jews continued to live in their land in significant numbers, and were allowed to practice their religion. In the second century the Roman Emperor Hadrian began to rebuild Jerusalem as a pagan city while restricting some Jewish practices. Angry at this affront, the Jews again revolted led by Simon Bar Kokhba . [130] Hadrian responded with overwhelming force, putting down the revolt and killing as many as half a million Jews . [131] After the Roman Legions prevailed in 135, Jews were not allowed to enter the city of Jerusalem and most Jewish worship was forbidden by Rome . [132]

Many who have read this prophecy and the Roman history have concluded that these prophesies have already been fulfilled when the temple was broken down in 70AD , concluding that Yahshua foresaw the destruction of the temple and prophesied about it beforehand. They were indeed partially the fulfilment of prophecy and no less important or significant in their fulfilment, but another 2000 years still remained. Would not Yahshua have been able to see at least only one prophetic event into the future about Israel and Jerusalem after the destruction of the temple? Men are in error because they do not know the scripture, or history, or the power of God.

Prophetic Cycle of Years - Another Command to Restore Israel

The prophet not only saw the first coming of Yahshua, but prophetically was shown those things, which would fulfil during the period just before the second coming of Yahshua. Thus, the prophecy seems to jump into the future, until another time when another command went forth for the Jews to return to the Promised Land, for the restoration and rebuilding of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. This happened on 29 Nov 1947 , when the UN made the announcement, 6 months before Israel became a state that the Jews could return to Israel. Thus, considering the prophetic cycle of years or Shavuas (Counting from Pentecost to Pentecost), we find those prophetic events, which would take place after 69 weeks of years or Shavuots, as was prophetically revealed to Daniel would happen: And the people of the [ other ] prince who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary . Its end shall come with a flood ; and even to the end there shall be war , and desolations are decreed . [ Isa. 53:7-9; Nah. 1:8; Matt. 24:6-14. ] (Dan 9:25-26 Ampl) Although only this event now seems to clearly stand out, considering the prophetic cycle of years, all the other prophetic events will also be fulfilled according to prophecy, but in another context. I do not want to go into that much detail, but will give an example: Yahshua was the Anointed One, now another anointed one will prepare the way; This anointed one will also have a 3.5 years ministry; this anointed one will also be cut off in the middle of a week, and be resurrected 3.5 days later, being a witness that points to the death and resurrection of Yahshua, but also points to His second coming. Antiochus Ephiphanes defiled the temple by trying to convert it to a pagan temple, later Caesars, Nero and Titus, also defiled the temple, but another is still to come who will defiled the outer court of the temple.

Thus, the prophet saw not only the future destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, but also a future destruction of the city of Jerusalem and the third temple. Many who look at this prophecy thinks it is impossible, for the third temple must still be rebuild. The reason is they think like this, is because the second temple has been broken down, but they fail to recognise that the prophecy refers to the end of the age, for it is written: “... and even to the end there shall be war , and desolations are decreed.” Not only did this prophet see into the future, until the time of Yahshua's second coming and the prophetic events that would unfold again, but all the other prophets testify of this same things that would happen at the end.

Even the apostle John, who completed the book of the Revelation of Yahshua in 95AD also referred to this same time when the temple will be partially destroyed, as was prophesied: 1 A REED [ as a measuring rod ] was then given to me, [ shaped ] like a staff, and I was told: Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God and the altar [ of incense ] , and [ number ] those who worship there . [ Ezek. 40:3. ] 2 But leave out of your measuring the court outside the sanctuary of God ; omit that, for it is given over to the Gentiles (the nations), and they will trample the holy city underfoot for 42 months (three and one-half years). [ Isa. 63:18; Zech. 12:3. ] ( Rev 11:1 -2 Ampl) Here Yahshua prophetically reveals to the apostle John that the outer court of the temple will be given over to the gentile nations, who will trampled the city of Jerusalem for a period of 42 months or 3.5 years. This prophecy does not refer to the destruction of the temple in 70AD, for John only wrote down the prophecy 20 years after the destruction of the temple.

The Former and Latter Rain

Through the prophet Joel YHWH also has great and awesome promises for those who love God and obey His and His Son's commands, abiding in God's the Father's love and in His Word, saying: 23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness , and He causes to come down for you the rain , the for-mer rain and the latter rain , as before. 24 And the [ threshing ] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [ of the grape ] and oil . 25 And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten --the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord , your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame . 27 And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else . My people shall never be put to shame. 28 And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh ; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy , your old men shall dream dreams , your young men shall see visions . 29 Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit . 30 And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens , and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes . [ Isa. 13:6, 9-11; 24:21-23; Ezek. 32:7-10; Matt. 24:29, 30; Rev. 6:12-17. ] 32 And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved , for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape , as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [ of survivors ] shall be those whom the Lord calls. [ Acts 2:17-21; Rom. 10:13. ] (Joel 2:23-32 Ampl) YHWH promised that He will give the former and the latter rain.

The same principle that occurred in the words of the prophet Daniel also apply to the prophet Joel's prophecy and every other prophecy that was granted a true prophet called and set apart by God. Thus, although the apostle Peter prophesied and told all those who came to the Feast of Pentecost or Shavuot: “ 15 For these men are not drunk, as you imagine, for it is [ only ] the third hour (about 9:00 a.m.) of the day; 16 But [ instead ] this is [ the beginning of ] what was spoken through the prophet Joel ...” (Act 2:15-16 Ampl) It does not mean that this prophecy had been completely fulfilled 40 days after the resurrection of Yahshua from the dead! Through the prophet Joel YHWH promised that He will give both the former and the latter rain outpouring. What does this mean?

When a farmer sows His seeds, he plants at different times of the year, in order to produce twice a year. He sows at the appointed time of the beginning of the year to harvest the spring harvest 4 months later and then again he sows late in the year to produce a crop harvest just before the winter season begins. For both these crops to survive and produce a good yield of crop both the spring rain or former rain and the late autumn rain or the latter rain must come and wet the seed to grow up and produce the desired crops twice a year.

Yahshua desires a great harvest to be saved, both those who are the former harvest and the latter harvest. Yahshua commanded His disciples, according to Luke: "... not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised , of which [ He said ] you have heard Me speak.” [ John 14:16, 26; 15:26. ] (Act 2:4b Ampl) In concluding, He said to them about his gift, which they had to wait in Jerusalem for: 8 But you shall receive power ( ability, efficiency, and might ) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you , and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth . (Act 1:8 Ampl) Yahshua promised to empower them through the gift and the power of the Holy Spirit, starting in the city of Jerusalem the message of the gospel going out even into the ends of the earth . Unfortunately, at that time the Jews, God's covenant and chosen nation, did not accept the gospel of life, and the message was given to the gentiles. Thus, before this message was sent out into all the world from Jerusalem, God empowered His appointed witnesses with the Baptism of the Spirit, to go and be witnesses to the Jews and the gentiles.

Through the prophet Isaiah, YHWH prophesied what will happen at the end of the age, when God will call back His remnant to Himself, so that all Israel will be saved, as is written: 1 BUT NOW [ in spite of past judgments for Israel's sins ][ both the House of Judah (2 Tribes) and the House of Israel (10 Tribes) ], thus says the Lord, He Who created you, O Jacob , and He Who formed you, O Israel : Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives ]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. 2 When you pass through the waters [ 2000 Years of being trampled and scattering into the heathen nations – Spanish Inquisition / Holocaust ] , I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you . When you walk through the fire , you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour [ Yahshua ] ; I give Egypt [ to the Babylonians ] for your ransom [ salvation out of the hand of Pharoah ], Ethiopia and Seba [ a province of Ethiopia ] in exchange [ for your release ]. 4 Because you are precious in My sight and honoured , and because I love you , I will give men in return for you and peoples in exchange for your life. 5 Fear not, for I am with you ; I will bring your offspring from the east [ where they are dispersed ] and gather you from the west. [ Acts 18:10. ] 6 I will say to the north , Give up! and to the south , Keep not back. Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth 7 Even everyone who is called by My name , whom I have created for My glory , whom I have formed , whom I have made . (Isa 43:1-7 Ampl) The nation of Israel has been divided and the northern tribes were scattered into the nations. At the appointed time of the end, the 12 tribes of Israel will return to their Salvation – Yahshua the Anointed One and their true King, accepting the price that was paid for them. Then they will return home and will be called from the ends of the earth. Therefore the prophet Joel says: 32 And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved , for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape , as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [ of survivors ] shall be those whom the Lord calls. (Joel 2:32 Ampl)

The prophet Isaiah continues saying about those who will return: 1 LISTEN TO me, O isles and coastlands, and hearken, you peoples from afar. The Lord has called me from the womb ; from the body of my mother He has named my name. 2 And He has made my mouth like a sharp sword ; in the shadow of His hand has He hid me and made me a polished arrow ; in His quiver has He kept me close and concealed me . 3 And [ the Lord ] said to me: “ You are My servant , Israel [ you who strive with God and with men and prevail ], in whom I will be glorified . [ Gen. 32:28; Deut. 7:6; 26:18, 19; Eph. 1:4-6. ] 4 Then I said: “I have laboured in vain , I have spent my strength for nothing and in empty futility ; yet surely my right is with the Lord , and my recompense is with my God. 5 And now, says the Lord, Who formed me from the womb to be His servant to bring Jacob back to Him and that Israel might be gathered to Him and not be swept away , for I am honourable in the eyes of the Lord and my God has become my strength 6 He says: “It is too light a thing that you should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the survivors [ of the judgments ] of Israel ; I will also give you for a light to the nations [ gentiles ], that My salvation may extend to the end of the earth . 7 Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel, Israel's Holy One, to him whom man rejects and despises , to him whom the nations abhor , to the servant of rulers : “ Kings shall see you and arise ; princes, and they shall prostrate themselves , because of the Lord, Who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, Who has chosen you . 8 Thus says the Lord: “In an acceptable and favourable time I have heard and answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve you and give you for a covenant to the people , to raise up and establish the land [ from its present state of ruin ] and t o apportion and cause them to inherit the desolate [ moral wastes of heathenism, their ] heritages, [ II Cor. 6:2. ] ( Isa 49:1-8 Ampl ) Through the prophet Isaiah God prophesied that He will raise up a servant whom He will use to return both Jacob and Israel back to Him. This servant will not only return the 12 tribes back to God, through Yahshua, the Salvation of God, but also become a light to the gentiles.

A light is a prophet. This Great Light that came was Yahshua, as was written: 15 The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, in the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles [ of the peoples who are not of Israel ]--[ Isa. 9:1-2. ] 16 The people who sat (dwelt enveloped) in darkness have seen a great Light , and for those who sat in the land and shadow of death Light has dawned . 17 From that time Jesus began to preach , crying out: “ Repent (change your mind for the better, heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matt 4:15-17 Ampl) And as was also written by the Luke, saying: 76 And you, little one , shall be called a prophet of the Most High ; for you shall go on before the face of the Lord to make ready His ways , [ Isa. 40:3; Mal. 4:5. ] 77 To bring and give the knowledge of salvation to His people in the forgiveness and remission of their sins . 78 Because of and through the heart of tender mercy and loving-kindness of our God, a Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit [ us ] [ Mal. 4:2. ] 79 To shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death , to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace . [ Isa. 9:2. ] (Luke 1:76-79 Ampl)

And as the apostle John explains about Yahshua being that Light that was to come, saying: 4 In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men . 5 And the Light shines on in the darkness , for the darkness has never overpowered it [ put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it , and is unreceptive to it ]. 6 There came a man sent from God , whose name was John . [ Mal. 3:1. ] 7 This man came to witness, that he might testify of the Light , that all men might believe in it [ adhere to it, trust it, and rely upon it ] through him. 8 He was not the Light himself , but came that he might bear witness regarding the Light . 9 There it was - the true Light [ was then ] coming into the world [ the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light ] that illumines every person . [ Isa. 49:6. ] ( John 1:4 -9 Ampl)

Even though John the Baptist was not that Light, even he himself was also a light , as Yahshua spoke about him, saying: 35 John was the lamp that kept on burning and shining [ to show you the way ], and you were willing for a while to delight (sun) yourselves in his light . ( John 5:35 Ampl)

Another light or lamp, like John the Baptist will come once more, just before Yahshua, the Sun of Righteousness, comes to save His chosen elect, as was written: 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. [ Matt. 11:14; 17:10-13. ] 6 And he shall turn and reconcile the hearts of the [ estranged ] fathers to the [ ungodly ] children, and the hearts of the [ rebellious ] children to [ the piety of ] their fathers [ a reconciliation produced by repentance of the ungodly ], lest I come and smite the land with a curse and a ban of utter destruction . [ Luke 1:17. ] (Mal 4:5-6 Ampl)

The prophet Zechariah saw a great fountain that would be opened for all mankind and also for the Jews, as was written: 9 And it shall be in that day that I will make it My aim to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem . 10 And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace or unmerited favour and supplication . And they shall look [ earnestly ] upon Me Whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him as one who is in bitterness for his firstborn. [ John 19:37; Rev. 1:7. ] 11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem [ Day of Atonement – Yom Kippur? ], as the mourning of [ the city of ] Hadadrimmon in the Valley of Megiddo [ over beloved King Josiah ]. [ II Chron. 35:22-25. ] (Zech 12:9-11 Ampl) Then the prophet concluded on this great outpouring of God's Love and grace being revealed to the House of Judah, the Jews, saying: 1 IN THAT day there shall be a fountain opened [John 4:] for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem [ to cleanse them from ] sin and uncleanness. ( Zech 13:1 Ampl) Yahshua said to the woman at the well: If you had only known and had recognized God's gift and Who this is that is saying to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him [ instead ] and He would have given you living water. (John 4:10 Ampl) And added: “14 But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more , but the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up ( flowing, bubbling ) [ continually ] within him unto (into, for) eternal life .” (John 4:14 Ampl) Then again, on the great day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Yahshua loudly proclaimed to all, saying: “If any man is thirsty , let him come to Me and drink ! 38 He who believes in Me [ who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me ] as the Scripture has said: “ From his innermost being shall flow [ continuously ] springs and rivers of living water . Then the apostle John explained this, saying: 39 But He was speaking here of the Spirit , Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive . For the [ Holy ] Spirit had not yet been given , because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honour). (John 7:37-39 Ampl) Yahshua spoke of how the Spirit will be poured out and a fountain will be opened, which those who believe, who accepts Yahshua's teachings and live according to the love of the grace and truth in Him, from within, a continues flow of living waters will bubble up from within their inmost beings, to eternal life. This flow of unending water, bubbling up from within, is the Holy Spirit who came upon the people, first in the upper room, through a might violent tempt blast and tongues of fire and later by the laying on hands of those who were filled with the Spirit.

In the last days, the Spirit, through a vision, which appeared to the same prophet Zechariah, showed him the final opening of a fountain that will be opened to the House of Judah, which will come from a continues, ceaseless supply of the flow of the Spirit, saying: “ 6 Then he said to me, This [ addition of the bowl to the candlestick , causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees [ not one, but two ]] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel , saying: “ Not by might , nor by power, but by My Spirit [ of Whom the oil is a symbol ],” says the Lord of hosts.” ( Zech 4:6 Ampl) The prophet sees how in the last days God will make Yahshua the extra large bowl of oil, from which all the other pipes or lamps in the Menorah are filled with the Holy Spirit. The prophetic word to the Governor of Judah was the Word of God to Zerubbabel, which came through two witnesses, Haggai and Zechariah, was a type of that which was to come and which was shown the prophet Zechariah, as the angel confirmed to Zechariah, explaining what the two olive branches resembles, saying: “These are the two sons of oil [ the two anointed ones ] who stand before the Lord of the whole earth [ as His anointed instruments ]. [ Rev. 11:4. ] (Zech 4:14 Ampl)

The angel prophetically referred to another time in the future, when God would once again send two anointed prophets, to just like Zechariah and Haggai, who encouraged and prophesied to Israel to complete building the temple, they would bring a message of hope, which would open a flow, like a fountain, from two branches, to supply the understanding of how never to run dry or out of oil, preparing the church of Yahshua, the 7 candle lampstand, with the revelation of the truth and the ability so that their lamps would never run empty ever again! These two prophets are also called lights or lamps as was prophesied about them, saying: 3 And I will grant the power of prophecy to My two witnesses for 1,260 (42 months; three and one-half years), dressed in sackcloth. 4 These [ witnesses ] are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth . [ Zech. 4:3, 11-14. ] (Rev 11:3-4 Ampl)

Before the fountain was opened on the day of Pentecost, Yahshua prophesied to them, saying: 8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might ) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you , and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth . (Act 1:8 Ampl) Even though this fountain was opened in Jerusalem and the message went out from there, through the chosen witnesses of Yahshua, the message was not well accepted in Jerusalem and Judah, so that the believers were persecuted and fled Jerusalem. Later Paul the apostle, speaking to the Jews, said to them who refused to believe that Yahshua is the Messiah, as was written: 4 But he discoursed and argued in the synagogue every Sabbath and won over [ both ] Jews and Greeks . 5 By the time Silas and Timothy arrived from Macedonia, Paul was completely engrossed with preaching , earnestly arguing and testifying to the Jews that Jesus [ is ] the Christ. 6 But since they kept opposing and abusing and reviling him , he shook out his clothing [ against them ] and said to them: “ Your blood be upon your [ own ] heads !” I am innocent [ of it ]. From now on I will go to the Gentiles (the heathen). [ Acts 13:46. ] 7 He then left there and went to the house of a man named Titus Justus, who worshiped God and whose house was next door to the synagogue . 8 But Crispus, the leader of the synagogue, believed [ that Jesus is the Messiah and acknowledged Him with joyful trust as Savior and Lord ], together with his entire household ; and many of the Corinthians who listened [ to Paul also ] believed and were baptized . (Act 18:4-8 Ampl) Paul now turned his attention fully upon the preaching the gospel to the more receptive gentiles in the towns of Asia minor.

Even the apostle Paul was called light to the gentiles and quoted from the prophesy of the prophet Isaiah, about himself, explaining how Yahshua appeared and called Him, saying: 13 When on the road at midday, O king, I saw a light from heaven surpassing the brightness of the sun , flashing about me and those who were travelling with me. 14 And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice in the Hebrew tongue saying to me, Saul, Saul, why do you continue to persecute Me [ to harass and trouble and molest Me ]? It is dangerous and turns out badly for you to keep kicking against the goads [ to keep offering vain and perilous resistance ]. 15 And I said, Who are You, Lord? And the Lord said: “ I AM Yahshua, Whom you are persecuting . 16 But arise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, that I might appoint you to serve as [ My ] minister and to bear witness both to what you have seen of Me [ witnesses of the sign that appeared to Him ] and to that in which I will appear to you [ future revelation ], 17 Choosing you out [ selecting you for Myself ] and delivering you from among this [ Jewish ] people and the Gentiles to whom I am sending you--[ Ezek. 2:1, 3. ] 18 To open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God , so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Me. [ Isa. 42:7, 16. ] 19 Wherefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision ,...” ( Act 26:13 -19 Ampl)

The word which Yahshua, who appeared to the apostle Paul quoted was from the word of YHWH to the prophet Isaiah, saying this refers also to him, saying: 6 I the Lord have called You [ the Messiah ] for a righteous purpose and in righteousness ; I will take You by the hand and will keep You ; I will give You for a covenant to the people [ Israel ], for a light to the nations [ Gentiles ] , 7 To open the eyes of the blind , to bring out prisoners from the dungeon , and those who sit in darkness from the prison . [ Matt. 12:18-21. ] 8 I am the Lord ; that is My name ! And My glory I will not give to another , nor My praise to graven images. (Isa 42:6-8 Ampl)

Thus the gospel went out from Jerusalem, to Judah and to Samaria and to the ends of the earth, but although the message was intended for the Jews, because they rejected it now given to the gentiles, who did accept the free grace of Life in Yahshua the Anointed One.

In the last days, this process will be reversed, as Yahshua had shown two witnesses, showing them a branch of an olive tree or vine that grew out of the gentile nations and making a bridge into Israel and into Jerusalem. Now, after thousands of years, at the appointed time, send by chosen witnesses for Yahshua, the message of the gospel of Life and righteousness, in the perfect blood sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Yahshua, will the message that will be brought to Israel and Jerusalem - to the Jews, as a witness to all nations, then the end will come, just as Yahshua prophesied it would happen, at that time, saying: And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations , and then will come the end . (Matt 24:14 Ampl) Yahshua also prophesied to His disciples that this message will not have completed going through the towns of Israel at that time, before He comes, prophesying: 21 Brother will deliver up brother to death , and the father his child ; and children will take a stand against their parents and will have them put to death . 22 And you will be hated by all for My name's sake , but he who perseveres and endures to the end will be saved [ from spiritual disease and death in the world to come ]. 23 When they persecute you in one town [ that is, pursue you in a manner that would injure you and cause you to suffer because of your belief ], flee to another town ; for truly I tell you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes . (Matt 10:21-23 Ampl)

On 12 May 2001 , 13 years ago, Yahshua, I AM, the Saviour of the world, who appeared to Moses, also appeared, this time not to one witness, but to two witnesses, so that at the testimony of two witnesses every matter from God can be establish, whether it came out of man's initiative or from God, through signs in the heavens. A large sign of the map of the world appeared infront of two witnesses and showed foreknown and predestined plan and the path that YHWH had set apart for us to travel, as we return like doves to our nest, leaving South Africa, passing through the nations and finally reaching the nation of Israel and Jerusalem.

As Yahshua had revealed to us and as we have already once experienced a fountain will be opened in the nation of South Africa and will shoot forth like a tender shoot out of dry ground and will become a mighty branch to the glory of the Lord Yahshua, who is awesome in wisdom and who chooses the shameful things and the despised things to shame the those who are wise in their own eyes.

In conclusion, the prophet Joel prophesied about both the coming tribulation and also about the great latter day outpouring which will take place in these last days, being encouraged or even initiated by two prophets or mighty witnesses, so that the blessing of God could be poured out, unreserved, upon all in South Arica who believe as a fountain which would start out for the gentiles, but would finally be going to Israel and the Jews to open their eyes.
