Is The End Really That Bad?
As we approach Yom Kippur on September 23, and with the end of a Shemitah, Jubilee starting and a Blood Moon Sukkot on the horizon, it seems as though the “signs” are pointing to something. But what?
Is this really a big deal? Let’s see…
1 Chronicles 12:32 says; From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take.
Mathew 2:2 says: and asked, “Where is the newborn King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship him.” (Side Note: How did they know He had a star and why were they looking for it?)
Genesis 1:14 says: Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
There we go, three scripture references that give us the foundation that Yahovah setup signs for us to “know the times” we are in. He hides this knowledge in plan site.
Proverbs 25:2 says: It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
We are to be “good Bereans” (Acts 17:11) and seek out truth in His mysteries.
So Why Is The World Freaking Out?
In the past month I’ve notice that so many things are breaking down and in chaos. (See my post about that here) I’ve had several friends ask me, “What do you think is going on?” “Do you think this is connected to the four blood moons?” In short, the world system is changing and falling apart, and yes, I believe this is connected to the signs in the sky. BUT I do not think this is all “DOOM AND GLOOM”. I see this time as a great opportunity for YHVH’s grace to win. But there is a line being drawn in the sand.
So, What is Shemitah, Jubilee, Days of Awe, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Four Blood Moons? Good questions… Buckle up!
Jubilee: Is the year after a 7 Shemitah cycles. 7 x7 =49 the 50th year is the Jubilee which is also the first year of the next 49. It is a year of total “reset”. Land returns back to family, debt is whipped out, finances reset. (Leviticus 25:8-13)
Days of Awe: Are the first 10 days of the 7th month. Yom Teruah or Rosh Hashanah begins the Days of Awe. The blowing of the Shofar signifies as an alarm. We are to get our “ducks in a row”. We are to fix our wrongs (Matt 5:23-24), bring our tithes, and do Tzedakah before Yom Kippur the Day of Atonement.
Yom Kippur: Is the day of Atonement. This is the day that rolled sin back one year and sealed the blessings or cures for the next year when the sacrifices were being offered. Yeshua being our sacrificial Lamb, our atonement has been paid for, IF you choose to follow Him and His commands. We still need to observe Elohim’s Moadim (Leviticus 23:4 appointed time) to follow the path of blessings. In the 10 Days of Awe, we right things we have done wrongs, to get back on the path of blessings, so when the book is sealed for the next year, we will have the windows of blessings open over us. Read All of Malachi 3.
Sukkot: Is the “Festival of Booths”. This moadim is the final of the “Big 3” the other two are Pesach, Passover “30” and Shavuot, Pentecost “60”. (Exodus 23:14-17) When Yeshua made the comment of 100, 60, 30 fold in Matthew 13:8. He was referring to the blessing of the 3 appointed times. Sukkot being the 100 fold return, which we receive when we bring our first fruit offerings and tzedakah.
Blood Moons: 4 Blood Moons landing on the High Holidays are also known as “tetrads”. We’ve already had three of the four in this tetrad. 1st fell on Pesach 2014, 2nd on Sukkot 2014, 3rd on Pesach 2015, and the next one is Sukkot 2015. Basing off the last few tetrads, they “seem” to be a sign of change. (Genesis 1:14, Acts 2:20 & Revelation 6:12). Google 4 Blood Moons and you will get a plethora of info on the other times tetrads showed up. *WARNING* Most of those talking about the 4 Blood Moons are Doom and Gloom. They are only using “one eye” when processing this info… Remember the term “one eye” it will make more sense soon enough.
Is This The End Of The World?
Like I said earlier, I do NOT believe this is the “End of the World“. Technically we have about a 1000 more years on this earth, but that is for another discussion. I’m not one to see EVERYTHING in the negative mind frame. This doesn’t mean that I don’t think there will be tough times. That is a given… We live in a fallen world and the enemy hates us. I look at what is going on in the world now, and the scripture of pharaoh disobeying YHVH comes to mind.
Let My People Go
I want to build a little here. In Matthew 6:24, Yeshua tells us we can’t have two masters. Either YHVH or mammon (which means: to have the sole purpose of attaining riches, hints “the LOVE of money is the root of all evil) you choose. So are you a slave? No matter how you look at it, you are. Either to Yahovah (see here) or “mammon” or also know as “Egypt”, “Babylon”, “Sodom”.
A little test you can do to see who’s you are, ask this question. The reason I go to my job is? I hope you’re not working FOR money.. or in other words, you work FOR mammon not your boss. But if you go to your job and do it unto the Lord, then you are His. Only you can answer that truthfully. You are either in His system or in the worlds system.
So back to pharaoh. Pharaoh and Egypt are symbols of the world system. The world system would not let Elohim’s people go, soooo they (those that were apart of that system) had their butts handed to them via 10 plagues. The children of the Most High weren’t harmed by the destroying of that system. After the last plague fell, YHVH told those apart of His system, to go get the gold and silver from the Egyptians (the other system). There was a transfer of wealth, a reset, a Jubilee! At this very moment is when the Rabbi’s start counting Jubilee’s. I will come back to this thought…
I believe we are coming up to the final reset and transfer. Every 7 years the world system goes through a reset, but on the 50th year in the cycle there is a reset and transfer.
This tetrad is the 8th since the days of Yeshua. 8 is the number of “New Beginning”. The 4th of the blood moons landing in the Jubilee year and tetrads being linked to “change” has strong indications of “New Beginnings” coming. Also we find ourselves in the 70th Jubilee from the time of Moses. 70 is a unique number YHVH uses.
At the time of Nimrod (which he was the first anti-christ) and the Tower of Babel, Elohim came down and destroyed the tower and confused “their” language, which caused strife and disagreement. This lead the people under Nimrod to split into 70 nations.
Then we see when Joseph in Egypt and he had his family join him, they totaled 70. The start of a new Nation…
70 is connected to disunity and unity.
In the Hebrew alphabet we find the letter Ayin, which has the gematria value of 70. The ancient symbol for Ayin was an “eye” and that is the meaning of this letter – “eye” or “to see”. This letter is also connected to primeval light. This light can only be seen through your “inner eye”.
~Ayin is sometimes described as having two eyes that connect to a common optic nerve that lead to the brain. The two eyes represent choice or the actions of the will or “heart”. We can choose whether to use the good eye or the evil eye to receive things; we can choose to see the glass as half full rather than half empty.
A person is said to be “olam katan”, a miniature world. The eye reflects the world outside and reveals the world inside. Person’s outlook reveals their inner character. This is part of what Yeshua meant when He said, “The eye is the light of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is evil, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” Matthew 6:22-23
According to the Talmud (Shabbat 104a), the good eye of Ayin looks toward Samekh in the alphabet and stand for the acronym semokh (support) anaiyim (the poor). That is the ayin tovah (good eye) will manifest itself in benevolence and charity (tzedakah) toward others. On the other hand, the ayin hara (evil eye) will look to the letter Pey (mouth), considering how it might consume for itself in greed and envy.
We find in the Bible that there were 70 souls that went into Egypt, 70 elders of Israel saw Elohim of Israel on Mt. Sinai, 70 Sacrifices made for the nation (during the festival of Sukkot) and Israel was subject to 70 years of exile in Babylon.
Jewish tradition, there are 70 members of the Sanhedrin, 70 words of Kaddish, 70 “faces of Torah” 70 names of God, and 70 birth pangs until the coming of the Mashiach (Messiah) ~ Referenced from Hebrew4Christians.com
I started this little segment with Matthew 6:24 talking about two masters. The verses right before it talk about the “good eye” and “bad eye”. The number 70 deals with unity, disunity, and “good eye” “bad eye”. The first anit-christ’s body split linked to 70, Christ’s body will unite linked to the 70th Jubilee. Rabbi’s have prophesied that this Jubilee will be the Jubilee of the Messiah. The line in the sand is clear. You can either choose blessings or curses. You can be apart of a mighty, bold, powerful body, (I’m not talking about attacking people either. Love is the key) or one that is over thrown and must run and hide. You can either follow His commands or disobey. (You still get into Heaven see here). You choose who you will SERVE Yahovah or mammon.
Those that reject God’s way… well read Exodus 7:14 – 11:10 it doesn’t end well. The system is changing, who are you working for? The signs are pointing to it, like a clock reading 12 midnight. I’m not scarred, worried, fearful, or nervous of the future. I know that what is about to happen will be the greatest time for the body of Messiah Yeshua. Will there be struggles? Sure. Will there be persecution? Sure. That is what happened in the story of the Exodus, BUT overall those that followed YHVH passed through the parted water.
So let’s recap. Is the end really that bad? Well if we look at it with the “good eye”, no. An ending is just a new beginning. Why is the world freaking out? Their system is failing apart rapidly and they can’t do anything about it. They will stubbornly go down with the ship, the sad part is, they can choose to change teams. If you find yourself worried or pushing the doom and gloom info, close that eye and open the good eye. Our God is a good God. I think we will see who is truly following the Messiah and who is just giving lip service in these times. Those that hear and see what God spoke through Malachi will be so blessed the nations will notice, that we follow the Most High. How can that prophecy come true with us being poor, running and hiding from the world? So with all of the signs pointing to this time, we must stand, be bold, be courageous and charge forward obeying the two pillar commandments. Love Elohim and Love you neighbor. I truly believe God put us on this planet to Tikkun Olam through Tzedakah. Meaning: Repair a broken world through acts of charity. We do NOT need to fear or hide any longer. It is up to us, it’s our choice. THE Creator of the Universe has put His trust in us to be His hands and feet or whatever part of the body you may be He’s a loving God and gave us FREEWILL. Step through fear and you will see the fruit of your faith. I’m going! You coming along with me?
