Jerusalem, 17s, 67s and the Yovel….

The last few days has seen a number of interesting conversations converge leaving me with a number of thoughts and interesting musings.  I’d like to share and see what feedback is out there…

I have gone on record before saying that in my opinion 2017 is a significant year. I have sensed that for more than 35 years and not because I was born in 1967.  My birth year is tied to the recapture of Jerusalem and I have long been acutely aware of the history of events on the 17s and 67s, some of which Rabbi Judah ben Samuel allegedly prophesied.  He believed the Messiah would come in 2017.

A poor pic snapped during the waning stages of our Seudat Moshiach under the Retreat Dean and Chuck recently helped me complete.  Here we have Tommy and Dorothy at the far end of the table, Reynna and Tzefanyah to their left and Chris across from his youngest son, Nathaniel in the hands of off-camera wife, Mary.  My two eldest sons are visible on the far left.  Gunnar (i) and Jeremiah.

I do not remember which, but either during our Seudat Moshiach or our Shabbat Oneg, we were discussing the many events of recent prophecy and the return of the Moshiach and the restoration of Jerusalem and the Tent of David as the center of the world.  During our discussion I shared my thoughts on 2017 and Jerusalem.

Last night I read and re-posted an interesting letter from brother James Block about the significance of Jerusalem in Scripture and what we need to be doing to speed the Messiah!  In it he makes a solid case from Scripture about the incredible importance of Zion to God and His Messiah.

Then, today, I receive an email about the ‘return of 10-Israel’ and a link to an exceptional compilation of commemorations that occur next year that are all seemingly Jubilee related.  Continue reading “Jerusalem, 17s, 67s and the Yovel….”

More on the upcoming Blood Moons!! (Two videos!!)

A reader sent me a video link this morning that is very interesting.  Marl Biltz is interviewed on Prophecy In The News about the upcoming Blood Moon Tetrad.  You will find the video informative with maybe a little new information.  I do know, Mark’s enthusiasm is contagious, and not unlike the sense in my spirit as we approach this Pesach.  (Please overlook the multiple product promotions on the video…  they have bills to pay…)

Frankly, I, nor anyone else KNOWS what will or won’t happen in conjunction with these celestial events, but they bear all the weight of possible/probable signs in the heavens, just as Scripture declares.  Continue reading “More on the upcoming Blood Moons!! (Two videos!!)”

Potiphar’s wife and Yeshua…

Several months ago I wrote and posted a series of articles considering the prophetic significance of Joseph’s life as a picture of Messiah Yeshua.  They can be found here:  Jesus / Yeshua as Pictured in Joseph.  Part 1.  Part 2Part 3.

Occasionally, another connection will bubble to the surface and I’ll add it to my list, but joseph_resistrecently I had one interesting enough to make a quick post.

Joseph is sold to Potiphar and becomes the head servant.  Potiphar’s wife decides to use him for her pleasure and he escapes without his clothes/garments.  Reading something else recently, as I thought about this, led led me to wonder if this is a picture of the ‘woman who rides the beast’ stripping Yeshua of His identity when ‘He got to Rome.’

It is interesting to note that the very Hebrew/Jewish Yeshua was converted to a Gentile Jesus in Rome by the stripping of His identity and He was ‘held in prison’ for more than a thousand years.  Then, He began His ascension in the eyes of the nations at/near the time of the Reformation, but His true identity, the Jewish Messiah Yeshua is only now really becoming widely known!
