- US is to impose sanctions on Turkey for their action in Syria. This as the Kurds call on Russia and the Assad regime for help. Bear in mind that this stage of the war broke out on Yom Kippur, the day of the anniversary of the Six-Day War, which was essentially about getting Jerusalem back into Jewish hands.
- Although the US withdrawal from Syria has thrown the region into chaos, from a biblical, prophetic point of view, we are seeing an alignment of prophetic wars and their involved nations, all lining up. These are the wars of Syria / Damascus, (Isaiah 17) Gog & Magog (Ezekiel 38 &39 and Psalm 83. There are 10 nations mentioned in the Psalm 83 war and nine nations in the Gog / Magog war. Some of the nations overlap indicating that this could all be one big war.
- Russia comes in to fill the void left by the US in Syria.
- Lightning strikes mosque on the Temple Mount as The Feast of Tabernacles gets underway. (BIN 16th October)

Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The amazing feast season:
We come now to the end of the feast season for this year, with the last of the seven feasts Tabernacles (Sukkoth) beginning on Sunday 13th October.
This report is an overview of the seven feasts, and what is of major importance, and what it all points to in the near future, prophetically.
The seven feasts contain the four spring feasts and the three fall feats, with the Feast of Pentecost in the middle.
The Spring Feasts are Passover (the cross), Unleavened bread (holiness), First fruits (resurrection) and Pentecost (the church age). These four feasts occur in quick succession because the historic events of the cross through to resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit occurred in quick succession. (Keep that in mind)
The Fall Feasts are Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets.) Yom Kippur (Atonement), Sukkoth (Tabernacles.) These three fall feasts have not yet had their prophetic fulfilment. They also occur in quick succession of each other.
Rosh Hashanah begins the time period known as the “days of awe,” which refers to the solemn period of introspection, judgement and new beginnings.
Yom Kippur occurs eight days after Rosh Hashanah. It symbolises divine judgement and forgiveness, so that the individual may be cleansed of sin. In fact, in practice it is a day of fasting. It is the most solemn of the feasts of the Lord.
The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth), occurs five days after Yom Kippur. This feast commemorates the historic original Exodus from Egypt into the wilderness. Prophetically it points to the coming spiritual exodus of the Jews from the Egypt, which is the world – to their Messiah and their eternal dwelling with Him. Temporary shelters are built symbolising Israel’s temporary dwelling in the wilderness on the way to The Promised Land and prophetically to the Millennium.
Many people especially the Catholics, reject the feasts and many change the order in violation of Leviticus 23:4 (Amp) “These are the set feasts or appointed seasons of the Lord, holy convocations you shall proclaim at their stated times.”
The feasts are permanently “set” in the times God has stated for them.
Christians do not need to celebrate the feasts in a legalistic manner, but we must at least identify with them and know well the major, important messages contained in them. (It is a blessing to celebrate them). You may not disregard their prophetic importance or change the order.
The feasts are not for the Jews only. The Bible calls them the Feasts of the Lord. But think about this: If you, as many do, say that the feasts are for the Jews only, then you have to say that the events of the cross are for the Jews only! Sorry Reverend Dumbish, you can’t cherry pick what suits you.
Amazing patterns in the Feasts:
There are many who teach that the rapture of the church will happen on one of days of Pentecost, because of certain associations of the rapture with Pentecost. They are all wrong.
Before we go any further please have a very good look at this diagram above.
I have pointed out before that Pentecost is a trumpet-less feast. The final three feasts are all associated with trumpets. The rapture is associated with trumpets. The rapture can only be on a Feast of Trumpets. There are many other reasons. But consider this:
I have mentioned the time periods between the feasts (diagram), for a good reason.
The time period between the first feast, Passover (the cross) and Pentecost (The church age), is very short. Then from the Feast of Pentecost to the next one, Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) is a long four months. That time period between the spring feasts and the fall feasts is called, “The long hot summer.” We are right now at the very end of the long hot summer, which ends with Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) and the final two in quick succession.
The reason for the long hot summer is because the church age is a long period of time compared to the time intervals between the other events, signified by feasts.
Do you see why the rapture can’t occur on a Feast of Pentecost? No it can’t - it just doesn't fit! The Feast of Pentecost was fulfilled by the start of the church age. It has been prophetically fulfilled. We are now at the very end of the long hot summer! There is no such thing as a feast having two prophetic fulfilments.
If the rapture has to happen on a Feast of Pentecost that would mean that the previous feast, Firstfruits, would have been fulfilled by the start of the church age! That would throw everything out of sync and make them all nonsensical.
It is most important to understand that the first four feasts, Passover to Pentecost were fulfilled by the events of the cross and the coming of the Holy Spirit. In terms of prophetic fulfilment these four feasts were and are for the born-again church exclusively.
Now as we come to the final three feasts a great, dramatic switch takes place. The coming fulfilment of these final, fall feasts are fulfilled by Israel and are for Israel.
Rosh Hashanah starts the tribulation; Yom Kippur will be fulfilled by the judgment of the wrath of God, and Sukkoth by the end of the tribulation, Second Coming and Millennium.
The church is not awaiting the tribulation, judgment on sin. That’s a done deal – at the cross. The church is not awaiting the tribulation and the wrath of God. The church is not awaiting the Second Coming. We will be returning with our Lord at that time. That’s all a done deal through the cross!
So the application and fulfilment of the fall feasts can only relate to Israel in the tribulation. The first four feasts are within the “mystery” that is the church and the three final feasts are outside of the mystery which is the church.
This is one of many reasons why Rosh Hashanah has to see the removal of the church, ending the church age and starting the tribulation.
This Rosh Hashanah went by uneventfully, but not Yom Kippur, which is also the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War of 1967 in which Jerusalem was restored to Jewish control. Now on this Yom Kippur, we saw the actual invasion of northern Syria by Turkey begin – on the very day! This will, no doubt lead to the Isaiah 17 war and other prophesied wars into which Israel will be dragged in.
Do you see how amazing this is? Do you see how accurately and well the whole gigantic story is spelt out and plotted? How accurate the Bible is.
And the Catholics and their half-baked masses get rid of the feasts and replace them with the unholy, occult, pagan, satanic, pig-eating feats of Easter and Christmas, which have no prophetic message at all.
Bear in mind that Bible calls the Feasts of the Lord “Holy convocations!” Pagan practices that are world-based, originating in Babylon are all cursed!
Godly wisdom, like gold is the purest, oldest form of genuine wealth there is. It is an immense store of value that is indestructible. It pays great dividends! Follow those who have it and beware of those with a handful of glittering fool’s gold.
►There is a very interesting biblical alignment between these seven feasts and the seven mysteries of the Bible, which I’ll touch on in the new edition.
Edition 418: May 22nd 2018
Incredible Temple Miracles and timing:
The three main miracles I’m dealing with here are recorded in the Hebrew Talmud. They actually carry great weight, because they are widely accepted as Jewish history. They have profound implications for the Jews! They are little known amongst Christians.
These three miracles have an important time element contained in them. There were other miracles which occurred in the Second Temple, but not relating to time as these three are.
Bear in mind that the Second Temple was built 70 years after the destruction of the First Temple and the Second Temple was destroyed in 70AD. 70 is a significant number for Israel and Jerusalem.
We are now soon to see the prophesied Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The Temple was called Beit Hamikdash, meaning “The house of holiness.”
Three incredible miracles – same message!
►Miracle of the Temple Gates:
Forty years before the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD (30AD), the large front gates of the Temple opened repeatedly by themselves every morning after they had been closed for the night. One of Rabbis, (Yohanan Zakkai) finally rebuked the gates saying in Hebrew: “Why do you alarm us. We know that you (the temple) will be destroyed.” (Talmud Yoma 39b)
The Rabbis believed that for the final Ezekiel temple to be built, this Second Temple would have to be destroyed. They did not know of the amazing prophetic plan of God!
The Temple doors ignored the Rabbi and continued to open every night for 40 years until 70AD.
They did not understand that the significance of the supernatural opening of the gates beginning in 30 AD - the time of the crucifixion. Was this God’s sign that the way to holiness was now open to everyone who believed in the cross?
The symbolism here is that the presence of God had left the Holy of Holies, also confirmed by the supernatural tearing of the veil from top to bottom. It was now open for all. The sacrifice of the cross has changed things forever!
►The miracle of the black and white stones:
On the Day of Atonement, the High Priest, Aaron was to conduct the temple-sacrifice.
Aaron was to cast lots to select one of two goats for the temple sacrifice. (Leviticus 16:8) This was done after the words, “For the Lord” was written on the white stone and “For Azazal”, (scapegoat), was written on a black stone. The two stones were put in a box and one stone was selected by the blindfolded High Priest.
For over two hundred years there was no consistency in which stone was chosen. It was simply random as it should have been.
Then in 30AD and for 40-years afterwards – until 70AD, the black stone was miraculously chosen every time by the blindfolded High Priest. The scapegoat then became the sacrifice.
The mathematical odds of that occurring are one in 5.5 billion.
During the sacrifice, a crimson cloth was tied to the scapegoat. It was then brought back to the Temple where it miraculously turned white, signifying that God had accepted the sacrifice for sin. (Isaiah 1:18) But in 30AD and for 40 years afterwards until 70AD, the cloth remained crimson and did not turn white!
The continuous supernatural selection of the black stone and the refusal of the crimson cloth to turn white were most certainly signs of God’s displeasure at Israel and her refusal to repent.
The Day of Atonement is central to Jewish tradition. This miracle means that our crucified Lord now becomes the life-long “Day of Atonement.”
►The miracle of the Temple Menorah:
The beautiful great big pure gold Temple Menorah was spectacular to behold. The central lamp was slightly raised above the other six and was called the “servant-lamp”. The other lamps were lit using the flame of the servant lamp.
From 30AD and onwards for 40 years, this central servant-lamp refused to burn for 40 years, until 70AD. The light of the Menorah, representing the light of God, the presence of God and the Spirit of God went out every night on its own.
What is the amazing message?
The crucifixion occurred on a Passover during the governorship of Pontius Pilate who was in office from 26AD to 36AD Passover on Nisan 15th 30 AD fits the bill perfectly and is consistent with many other factors.
●The message is: 70 is a very important number for the Jews, Jerusalem and Israel!
●The message to the Jews is: In 30AD when our Messiah was crucified, your temple became an empty shell as the veil was torn.
●The message is: From 30AD, when our Lord was crucified, the Jews chose Barabbas, the scapegoat. By the way: The name Barabbas means “son of the father.” The first name of Barabbas was “Jesus”! He was the ultimate counterfeit, like the coming antichrist will be!
●The message is: From 30AD, the crimson cloth would not turn white indicating that God’s saving grace wasn’t in the temple anymore.
●The message is: From 30AD, the temple menorah would not light up, indicating that God’s presence had left the temple.
●The message is: Jews will accept the Third Temple – the home and throne of the antichrist, although that will only be initially.
●The big, enormous, amazing message in these miraculous events is: Our Lord’s sacrifice was and is now the only accepted sacrifice.
●The all-powerful message to the Jews is: Your Messiah has come and gone and is ready to return again, and receive you back as He lifts the veil of blindness.
●The message is: Now is the time!
The consistency in these three miracle-messages is that they all have the same time frames associated. That gives extra strength and support to the meanings.
►The miracle of Hebrew lost and restored:
This is miraculous, but not like those above. It does have a time element to it, but much broader.
Zephaniah 3:8-13 “Wait for Me, says the Lord, until the day I rise up and plunder the nations...and pour out My indignation (wrath) upon them, all My fierce anger. All the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy. (Tribulation period) Then I will restore to the peoples a pure language that they may call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him in one accord...The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness.”
The Hebrew language has many direct associations with the temple. It was the “temple language”, associated with the holiness of the temple.
The Hebrew language of the Jews of Israel was lost during the dispersion, which began at the fall of the Second Temple in 70AD. The language was then basically “lost.”
During the time of lost Hebrew, Jews in Israel spoke a number of Semitic, Arab and mixed languages. Those who were scattered took on the languages of their host nations. In the restoration, Hebrew then became closely associated with Zionism and the call of God upon the Jews to return.
So it was the dispersion (diaspora) and regathering (aliyah) which was marked by the lost and restored Hebrew.
The temples stood on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. God put His name in the temple in Jerusalem. The city, the land, the people, and the temple are all interconnected.
If the destruction of the Second Temple in 70AD marked the fall of the Hebrew language, is the restoration of Hebrew a sign that the Third Temple is just around the corner?
Restored Hebrew was a miracle sign confirming God’s call on the people, the city and the land and an indication of the soon-coming Third Temple.
It’s all connected!
As Hebrew was restored it was first spoken in the synagogues, then in Jewish homes, schools, businesses and then the first Hebrew-language newspaper was born. Its first headline in Hebrew was “The People declare The State of Israel.”
Here is the front page:
A side note: It is evident from the scriptures that Hebrew will be spoken by the Jews of Israel in the tribulation period. Hebrew may well become a universal language in the Millennium, but we are not there yet. There are no verses or commands anywhere in the Bible for all nations to speak any words at all in Hebrew, unless of course you are a Jew.
I use the name “Yeshua” instead of Jesus because that is a testimony to the Jews and speaks to them of exactly who their Messiah is.
Understand that those who claim Hebrew or Heblish as it has become known, must be spoken now by all nations of the world are wrong, wrong and wrong again. The restoration of Hebrew is a miracle of God and a sign of restoration of the Jews, the land and their city – exclusively.
There is not one single verse in the Bible saying or even implying that other nations must speak Heblish and say God’s name in a specific way in Hebrew. Some of these deceived teachers even go so far as to say that if you don’t you are a goat nation – going to hell! Run away from all them fast.
Other soon-coming miracles:
We are on the verge of many supernatural things occurring. Some will be demonstrative and in your face. Others will be more “gentle”, but still miraculous. Some will release all hell, devils, demons wolves in sheep’s clothing, and savage wars and upheavals in the tribulation period.
Israel will be the main focus of the work of God and the attack of the devil in this time.
Here are some fantastic miracles to consider. Some have already started:
Zechariah 3:9 “...Upon the stone are seven eyes. I will engrave its inscription. I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
Isaiah 35:1-2 “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, (Jews) and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice...”
Even nature itself is being restored with the restoration of the people.
Ezekiel 36:35 “They will say, ‘This land that was desolate (Israel) has become like the garden of Eden.’”
►Now, let’s have a look at something quite amazing:
Deuteronomy 28:37 “And you (Israel) shall become an astonishment (Lit=horror), a proverb, and a byword among all the nations where the Lord will drive you.”
We all know that the Jews have been treated as a “horror” and with much indignation.
But here is how it ends up! (I’ve said so many times that it’s not very cleaver to listen to the world, the media or the stupid intellectuals of the day on anything related to Israel.)
Deuteronomy 28:10 “Then all the peoples of the earth shall see that you (Jews) are called by the name of the Lord and they shall be afraid of you.”
CNN, BBC, Sky and others of the mass-media – the verse above is just for you! (The verse above and the one below, occur in the tribulation period. And yes you will be there, mass-media!)
Zechariah 8:22-23 “Many peoples, and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before Him. Then ten men of every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
Do you see it? The people of the nations of the world will grab the sleeve of the Jew! Does that ring any bells? It was commanded by Hitler that all Jews must wear a yellow star on their sleeves identifying them as the enemy!
Many Jews of the Holocaust went to deaths with a yellow star on their sleeve.
Now there will be no yellow star, and the people will now be grasping at God in those sleeves! They will recognise God at work in the Jews, bringing salvation to the nations!
Isaiah 45:14 “...Men of stature shall come to you (Israel) and they shall be yours. They shall walk behind you, in their chains; and they shall bow down to you. They will say, ‘Surely God is in you and there is no other God.”
The nations will say: “Surely God is now in those sleeves!”
Isn’t it interesting that there is so much conflict over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem? It was the spot of so much of God’s work and so many messages from God. Now Islam puts its claim on it. You would think that history would have taught them something.
Interestingly, the mass-media, Satan’s mouthpiece, never, not once condemns or even questions the Muslims actions to make and keep the Temple Mount exclusively Muslim. No Jews allowed!
Hitler’s yellow stars have taught Islam nothing! (Nor the media for that matter) Guess what will soon happen with that story? Again a spectacular reversal and turn of events!
New names, a new “temple:”
1 Corinthians 3:16 “You are the temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwells in you.”
Through the new-birth we are already supernatural, miraculous beings, with the living God living inside of us. At the rapture of the true church, we will instantly become fully and totally complete in our salvation. Our bodies will have the characteristics of the body of our Lord.
The salvation of our bodies, which still lies ahead, is in fact the completion of our salvation and the final end to the final enemy – death.
The new birth occurred in the past, when we were born-again and that applies to our spirit being.
We are already living walking, supernatural “temples of God” (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19)
At the completion of our salvation (body) all things become new! At this time we are also given new names, Israel too.
Revelation 3:12 “He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and I will write on him My new name.”
Revelation 2:17 “...To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat, and I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”
Isaiah 62:2-4 “The Gentiles shall see your righteousness and all kings your glory. You (Israel) shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord will name...You also shall be a crown of glory...You shall no longer be termed ‘forsaken.’”
Have you considered that eternal life for you begins now this side of the grave? Have you considered that God’s plan for your life began before the foundation of the earth?
In fact, just like Israel, you were seen, chosen and called in ages past!
Have you considered that we will have life eternal – never ending, clean, holy, pure, righteous and full of glory!
Hebrews 7:16 “...The power of an endless life.”
Jews, will you please wake up to the fact that something shattering happened to your rabbinical belief system and practice in 30AD. Please open your spiritual eyes. If you do, you will see great and wonderful things! You will see your own Jewish Messiah and all He has done for you and still will in the very near future. Don't wait...wake up now!
You can’t live in God’s peace when out of God’s calling. When we see and understand that God has a plan for all of us, Jew and Gentile and ultimately many Arabs, we come into rest. We run into trouble when we don’t know His plans or try to modify and change them!
Isaiah 45:11-17 Thus says the Lord, the holy one of Israel, ask Me of things to come, concerning My sons...I will direct all his ways and he shall build My city and let My exiles go free, not for price nor reward...Israel shall be saved by the Lord, with an everlasting salvation. You shall not be ashamed or disgraced forever and ever.”
I took the background picture of a giant fern leaf in my garden and the rhino in the wilds. I messed around with colours and textures for some visual fun.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
